The purpose of this assignment is to apply the concepts of this course and provide an assessment of a Canadian aggregate, identifying their strengths and their needs using the Community as Partner model or the Population Health Model, that results in a community nursing diagnosis. This assignment is so much more rewarding when you can choose an aggregate that interests you. The assignment will be easier when you have easy access or have experience working with this aggregate. Once you have chosen the aggregate and decided how to approach the assignment, the rest will flow more easily. When choosing the aggregate, note the definition of the aggregate. Include social demographics i.e. age, sex, ethnicity, culture, education, employment levels, socioeconomic status and the aggregate’s i.e. history, values and beliefs; include area boundaries of your aggregate. For example the homeless population in downtown Calgary specifies an area boundary.
Caution when assessing the aggregate that bias does not occur from predicting the community diagnosis or program before assessing the aggregate. You may have some ideas what the issues could be in advance; however, it is important to gather information from the aggregate, from key informants and also through Canada or city census and/through credible literature sources. Determine what the issues or stressors are as you assess the chosen aggregate. What factors lead to a good health status? What issues does this aggregate see as being the most important to them? What does the aggregate identify as being most significant? Using literature and statistics to support your findings is also an essential part of this process. This provides you with broad knowledge of the aggregate. The community diagnosis needs to be developed as a result of the assessment and analysis of the data. Finally, formulate the community diagnosis that includes the 4 parts as presented in Canadian Community as Partner Text. Page 281. The priority aggregate and diagnosis will be used for the second paper
