Question Description

Regardless of the method one chooses to use in order to disseminate findings from a needs assessment, the information reported needs to be adapted to the target audience. Because a needs assessment targets the community in which data are collected, it is important to consider how information from the assessment is disseminated and who is involved in the information dissemination. You also need to recognize that modifications might be necessary based on the target audience and the results of the community health needs assessment.

For this Assignment, review the information dissemination strategies in this week's resources. Then, consider different types of information from a community health needs assessment that have to be disseminated. In addition, determine the audience who will receive the disseminated information, and analyze the different information dissemination strategies based on the types of information you deem to be important to the target community. Also, consider any modifications that might be necessary depending on the audience. Finally, select a case study from this week's resources and analyze the case from a community health needs perspective.

Assignment (2–3 pages)

Address the following in context of the case study you have selected:

  • Describe the information that you obtained from your analysis of the case study and that you would disseminate.
  • Explain who the intended audience will be and how they may use the information.
  • Explain what, if any, information should not be disseminated to the audience. Justify your rationale.

Dissemination Strategies

From the analysis of the article of the University of Kansas that talks about using
outreach to increase access, I would like to like to disseminate the information on using the “but
why” technique to solve community problems. The "but why" technique is used to identify
pinpoint causes of the community problems. The causes of the community problems are known
as "causes." This technique analyses a community problem by asking questions to determine the
leading causes of the problem identified. This close observation of coordination and commitment
with the people have experienced, or people who are experiencing the issue in question follows
