Response 1: 200 words or more required with In considering the interventions put forth by the Minnesota Department of Health for public health professionals (Minnesota Department of Health, 2019), I find that I have already employed three of them in the development of my project. Should the project have progressed as anticipated prior to the advent of Covid-19 restrictions, I would have been utilizing one more with my originally intended audience. I will be proceeding with the project as if all four were to be implemented as planned.             The first of the interventions that I employed was that of collaboration (Minnesota Department of Health, 2019). I have done so by speaking with multiple individuals working within the local health-care community and the Pierce County Aging and Disability Resource Center. In this, I have been able to incorporate into my education some resources that they are aware of, as well as to further define areas of need that need to be addressed in my research. I’ve also been able to become aware of their concerns for the populations that they serve and will try to address the ones relevant to the education that I will be providing. Perhaps most importantly, I have made them aware of my goals in what I will be doing and have gained their cooperation and buy-in.             The second and third interventions I have utilized are those of outreach and community organization (Minnesota Department of Health, 2019). Thus far, I have had contact with the Spring Valley Senior Citizens Center (prior to their closure) and had established that they were receptive to my education as relevant and welcome to their service demographic. I have also spoken with the local pharmacy and confirmed that the pharmacist/owner of the facility is interested in any printed hand-outs pertaining to transportation services to be distributed to area seniors and their caregivers. In doing so, I have identified the population that I intended to address, found a means of reaching them, and begun to organize methods of doing so with other community members and organizations.             Finally, I continue to prepare for the final intervention of health teaching (Minnesota Department of Health, 2019). While my intended audience is currently unable to be reached via the method I had intended to employ, the preparation of the educational materials and presentation continue apace. It has been conveyed to me by county and pharmacy staff that they are interested in printed materials that I produce for distribution to their clientele. Assuming that the local clinic eventually re-opens, the providers at that location are welcome as well to make use of the information that I gather regarding resources, though they would not be able to distribute them without higher approval from within the Mayo Health System. References Minnesota Department of Health (2019). Public health interventions: Applications for public health nursing practice (2nd ed.). RESPONSE 2: 200 words or more required with reference The Minnesota Health wheel is the framework to define the interventions for community nurses to follow within their scope of practice. There are many interventions to choose from for nurses caring for people in the community for the patients and their families to reach the goal of improved health within the community (Minnesota Health Department, n.d.).  Several of the intervention strategies could assist me in educating my family on Dementia/Alzheimer’s Disease. I could benefit from using all three of the case finding interventions. Using Surveillance, Disease, and Other Health Event Investigation and Outreach all include gathering data to define the community’s needs. Surveillance incorporates the planning, implementing, and evaluation of the interventions for public health. I have already begun the planning and have thought about some of the goals I would like to set for my family.  Disease and other health event investigations examine any threats to the community. Examine why there is a threat, who is at risk, and what can improve the threat. I recently learned that my family and some of my friends are oblivious to what to expect with a person who is declining with Dementia/Alzheimer’s Disease. Outreach looks at the community to see what interventions are needed to achieve optimal health or their best quality of life. I will gather more data to present to my family and friends to gain knowledge and understanding of Dementia/Alzheimer’s Disease. I have already utilized several of the interventions. I have also utilized Case Finding to locate a family who would benefit from being educated on Dementia/Alzheimer’s Disease. While being there, Case Manager, I will use Referral and Follow-up to give information on community resources available to them, and I will always try to be available for them for any of their follow-up needs. I will use Health Teaching and Counseling to meet the needs of my friends and family. I have a good feel for the people I am presenting to, making educating them easier because I know how they like to learn already.  I worked in Home Health Care and was shocked about how many of these interventions I practice daily in a normal workday. Since working-home care, I was taught to use these interventions to connect with the patients, ensure their basic needs are met, provide medical assistance and transportation for the public, and many other unspoken interventions.  It is interesting to learn where these common interventions originated from that I use in my daily practice.    Minnesota Health Department.

Minnesota Department of Health Section of Public Health Nursing March 2001 Public Health Interventions with Definitions Public Health Intervention Definition Surveillance Describes and monitors health events through ongoing and systematic collection, analysis, and interpretation of health data for the purpose of planning, implementing, and evaluating public health interventions. [Adapted from MMWR, 1988] Disease and other health event investigation Systematically gathers and analyzes data regarding threats to the health of populations, ascertains the source of the threat, identifies cases and others at risk, and determines control measures. Outreach Locates populations-of-interest or populations-at-risk and provides information about the nature of the concern, what can be done about it, and how services can be obtained. Screening Identifies individuals with unrecognized health risk factors or asymptomatic disease conditions in populations. Case-finding Locates individuals and families with identified risk factors and connects them with resources. Referral and follow-up Assists individuals, families, groups, organizations, and/or communities to identify and access necessary resources in to prevent or resolve problems or concerns. Case management Optimizes self-care capabilities of individuals and families and the capacity of systems and communities to coordinate and provide services. Delegated functions Direct care tasks a registered professional nurse carries out under the authority of a health care practitioner as allowed by law. Delegated functions also include any direct care tasks a registered professional nurse entrusts to other appropriate personnel to perform. Health teaching Communicates facts, ideas and skills that change knowledge, attitudes, values, beliefs, behaviors, and practices of individuals, families, systems, and/or communities. Counseling Establishes an interpersonal relationship with a community, a system, family or individual intended to increase or enhance their capacity for self-care and coping. Counseling engages the community, a system, family or individual at an emotional level. Consultation Seeks information and generates optional solutions to perceived problems or issues through interactive problem solving with a community, system, family or individual. The community, system, family or individual selects and acts on the option best meeting the circumstances. Collaboration Commits two or more persons or organizations to achieve a common goal through enhancing the capacity of one or more of the members to promote and protect health. [adapted from Henneman, Lee, and Cohen “Collaboration: A Concept Analysis” in J. Advanced Nursing Vol 21 1995: 103-109] Coalition building Promotes and develops alliances among organizations or constituencies for a common purpose. It builds linkages, solves Minnesota Department of Health Section of Public Health Nursing March 2001 problems, and/or enhances local leadership to address health concerns. Community organizing Helps community groups to identify common problems or goals, mobilize resources, and develop and implement strategies for reaching the goals they collectively have set. [adapted from Minkler, M (ed) Community Organizing and Community Building for Health (New Brunswick, NJ: Rutgers Univ. Press) 1997; 30] Advocacy Pleads someone’s cause or act on someone’s behalf, with a focus on developing the community, system, individual or family’s capacity to plead their own cause or act on their own behalf. Social marketing Utilizes commercial marketing principles and technologies for programs designed to influence the knowledge, attitudes, values, beliefs, behaviors, and practices of the population-of-interest. Policy development Places health issues on decision-makers’ agendas, acquires a plan of resolution, and determines needed resources. Policy development results in laws, rules and regulation, ordinances, and policies. Policy enforcement Compels others to comply with the laws, rules, regulations, ordinances and policies created in conjunction with policy development.
