Assessment task: Essay

Develop a summary community health profile of a community living in a local authority area in England using a range of secondary (desktop) data sources.

Discuss what the profile suggests the key health needs of the population are and what determinants of health are influencing people’s health (negatively and where relevant positively)

Assessing Population Health – Suggested Essay Outline – FINAL REVISED VERSION
This essay has a tight word limit so it will be important to condense and compress information and ideas in short, clear sentences. It will be particularly important to cut out repetition and to prioritise what community health information is presented and to leave out less important information and information that does not add anything to understanding the key needs of the community. This essay will test the ability to identify important information and summarise it well.

Develop a summary community health profile of a community living in a local authority area in England using a range of secondary (desktop) data sources. Discuss what the profile suggests the key health needs of the population are and what determinants of health are influencing people’s health (negatively and where relevant positively). (2000 words plus reference list; plus 10%, 2,200 words)

 

This could be the local authority area where you live, or another local authority area, in England. Then summarise, analyse and discuss the community health needs of this community using the area’s Joint Strategic Needs Assessment as the main source of information.

YOU CANNOT USE HOUNSLOW AS YOUR COMMUNITY AND LOCAL AUTHORITY AS THIS IS USED AS A CASE STUDY IN THE MODULE TEACHING SESSIONS.

Introduction (100 words)

Briefly set out what your essay will be about (what will be discussed in your essay and in what order) e.g. which local authority area, what key definitions you will discuss and what key sources of community health and wellbeing data you have used and why.

 

Background (300 words, sources and evidence must be cited) [LO1]

Why is population health assessed?

  • Define briefly what a community health needs assessment is and why it is used.
  • Define briefly what a community health profile is and why it is used.
  • Define briefly what monitoring and surveillance is and why it is undertaken and how they fit in with community health needs assessment.

 

 

Community health profile (900 words, sources and evidence must be cited) [LO2, LO4]

Summarise and discuss:

  • key measures of the health status of the community.
  • key measures of deprivation (inequalities)
  • key measures of the determinants of health e.g. education, family, neighbourhood.

 

 

 

  • Discuss trends in the community’s health and wellbeing.

 

Implications of the findings of the profile (500 words, sources and evidence must be cited) [LO2, LO3, LO4]

Summarise and discuss:

  • What does the profile tells us are the 2 or 3 major health needs of the community as a whole.
  • What does the profile tells us about 2 or 3 major health needs of vulnerable and disadvantaged groups.
  • Briefly discuss how theories of health need and theories of population trends could inform our interpretation of a community profile.
  • Define what community assets are and why they are useful in supporting and improving community health (i.e. how can they help to a community’s health).

 

 

 

 

Conclusion (100 words, sources and evidence should be cited if appropriate) [LO1, LO2]

  • A brief conclusion (wrap-up) on the strengths and limitations of the profile.

 

Do not re-summarise your community profile section.

 

  • What gaps are there in the existing information sources. What other information/data should be collected and why.

Reference list

  • A complete list of references in Cite Them Right Harvard format that are linked to citations that are provided in the main part of the essay.
  • The references should be in alphabetical order – A to Z.
