Community Level Interventions
The windshield survey summary will require you to apply what you have learned through your basic windshield survey of Sentinel City® to a target population of your choosing. You will complete your project by comparing data from Sentinel City® with similar data from the city where your target population lives.
Your presentation will include 9 parts, which are described in detail below and include details in the speaker notes.
Provide a brief introduction that identifies the demographics for the city where your target population lives.

Select one of the 3 health concerns you identified and state why you decided to develop an intervention that addresses these particular health concerns/issues. Include the Healthy People 2020 objective that relates to your identified health concerns.
V. Community Health Nursing Diagnosis
Develop a community health nursing diagnosis based on your analysis of the demographic and health status data that you gathered.
Your community health nursing diagnosis should be written using the following format (Nies & McEwen, 2011, p. 101):
Increased risk of (disability, disease, etc.) among (community or population) related to (disability, disease, etc.) as demonstrated in or by (health status indicator, or etiological/causal statement).
Increased risk of obesity among school age children related to lack of safe outdoor play areas for children as demonstrated by above average BMI rates.
Increased risk of depression among persons with a physical disability related to the lack of handicap accessible facilities and social isolation as demonstrated by high suicide rate
VI. A & B. Intervention to Address the Diagnosis
Describe your proposed intervention that will address the community health nursing diagnosis for your target population. You may choose to develop your own intervention or modify one that was recommended by the Task Force on Community Preventive Services (TFCPS).
To view recommended interventions, visit the TFCPS website and select the topic you plan on addressing for your intervention. (Note: at the bottom of most topic pages on the TFCPS website there is a sample on how to cite the webpage. After reviewing the topics, click the “Resources” tab then click “Fact Sheets”. Here you may find fact sheets to share with your mentor at your practice learning site.)
Whether you modify an existing intervention or develop one of your own, you must discuss why this intervention will or why you needed to modify it because it would not work for your target population. Include advantages, population fit, and barriers in use of the intervention. You should include the long-term goals, two measurable objectives, and the required resources such as: time, equipment, finances, etc. [Note: you are not required to carry out your intervention]
