Population health, in its broadest sense, is defined as an integrated approach by which interdisciplinary
collaboration between various groups in a community—such as businesses, academia, healthcare
providers, philanthropic organizations, local governments, and civil and religious organizations—work
together to achieve the common goal of improving overall human health within a defined geographical area
When examining population health dynamics, it is important to recognize that important research areas
include not only aggregated medical diagnoses but also the hazards in the living and working
environments, socioeconomic statuses, ethnic backgrounds, educational levels, and health coveragerelated
aspects of a given population. In particular, underserved populations play an important role in the
development of strategies, interventions, and policy for the delivery of improved population health.
Improving population health focuses not only on bringing awareness to significant health issues and
contributing factors within a given area but also on identifying the resources necessary to influence and
deliver positive changes.
For nurses and other members of the healthcare community, population health is just as much a
professional responsibility as is the care of a single individual in an acute care setting. It is important for
members of the healthcare community to cultivate an awareness of and sense of involvement in population
health initiatives. In these initiatives, a nurse’s knowledge—including informatics competencies, clinical
practice experience, and leadership skills—can be applied to positively affect health outcomes. It is equally
important for nurses to first analyze and understand the geographical area an initiative focuses on. This
helps identify modifiable and nonmodifiable health risk factors within a community, which serves as the
foundation for setting priorities. This first step is vital in generating the information necessary for the
engagement and action of local stakeholders.
In this task, you will gather data about the local geographical distribution of health-related factors, study the
significance of the data, and present the data in a manner illustrating the state of the selected county’s
population health. You will explore the community’s health profile and trends as well as factors influencing
the county’s current health status. The information you submit will consist of graphics such as maps,
trending graphs, comparative charts, and statistical lists. You will summarize key findings and highlight at
least one health factor or condition requiring focused attention. You may examine the attached “CDC Data
Brief Example” in the Supporting Documents section to obtain a general idea of what the result of this task
will look like.
