QUALITATIVE AND QUANTITATIVE EVALUATION METHODS
For the final assignment in NR 443: Community Health Nursing, you will need to utilize a qualitative or
quantitative evaluation method to evaluate your proposed intervention.
Qualitative evaluation techniques generally are subjective data and can include methods such as:
• observation methods
• focus groups
• other non-statistical data
If your proposed intervention is related to childhood obesity, you may want to interview the children
pre and post intervention to see if their attitude about food and health has changed. This would be a
qualitative evaluation method.
For the same intervention, you want to have a focus group with pre and post intervention with parents
to see if their children’s attitudes about food have changed. This would be a qualitative evaluation
Quantitative evaluation techniques generally are objective data and can include methods such as:
• physiologic data
• statistical analysis
Your proposed intervention is the same as the example above, but instead of an interview, you would
like to measure the children’s weight pre and post your intervention. This would be a quantitative
Another example of a quantitative evaluation method would be having a pre and posttest on healthy
foods and importance of exercise. You would compare the pre intervention test results with the post to
measure if your intervention was effective.
Fall Creek Community Windshield Survey
Criteria Your response
1. Community Introduction:
Identify the community you will be using for this assignment. It should be the area where you live or the area surrounding your work setting. The Fall Creek community is the one I chose for the Community Windshield Survey in which I have lived for the past six years. It is a US community that is master-planned in the unincorporated Harris County of Texas. Ralph (2004) reported that the 1300 acre community is about 3 miles from the George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston and is in the north of Downtown Indianapolis, Indiana.
2. Windshield survey
a. Vitality This community is a transitional state in that it has beautiful, newly built homes with an architectural style similar to that of the 1930s. The houses are same to some of the historic ones within the community. Definite delineation is evident between the sections that aren’t updated and the restored section. The evidence of this comes from the condition of the residences as well as the maintenance of infrastructures like street lighting, sidewalks, and environmental sanitation.
b. Indicators of social and economic conditions There are many small restaurants and shops in the community’s residential areas. On the main thoroughfare bordering the community’s western edge, there are three fast-food chain restaurants. The city bus stops, which are marked well. The developed area has Pilates studio, yoga, high-end salon and butcher among many others. The three public designated parks have an open green space with limited playground equipment. Fall Creek appears to be dominated by the blacks in the older sections while the whites dominate the redeveloped ones. At any given time, the police appeared equal in all places. The community’s resource centers are many, same to the youth and senior centers.
c. Health Resources There is proximal to a large hospital with outpatient, inpatient, and emergency departments. The hospital campus is about one mile from the community’s age, and it doesn’t have a community clinic. There are two national chain drugstores proximal to the hospital with a staff nurse practitioner at daytime.
d. Environmental conditions related to health The community has a clean environment with fresh air in most places. However, the black dominated areas are somehow dirty with conspicuous dumping sites. Some sewerage systems are ineffective in that there are some places with leakages.
e. Social functioning The community has two high schools as well as two great schools with both lying opposite the community edges. Churches are many taking up business spaces or the long abandoned buildings. Only the community churches have community gatherings. Most students walk to and from school, and before and after classes, the streets are full of them.
f. Attitude toward health care The attitude towards health care varies between the white and black dominated areas. Most of the whites dominate the hospital while trying to receive care while the blacks are few.
Provide a summary of your findings and your conclusion. What problems did you identify? The community has new buildings in most places with architectural designs similar to those of the 1930s. Black dominated areas are less developed than the white dominated ones. There are several social, health and economic facilities. However, the health and recreational facilities and schools are inadequate for the community since there is no community clinic in addition to a few schools. It’s hard to pass health information to the community at a faster rate because of this in addition to the findings that only churches are responsible for social gatherings. Waste disposal and the sewerage system pose a great danger to the health of the people in the community. Furthermore, most blacks don’t seek health care services compared to their white colleagues, which is a challenge in ensuring a healthy community. Therefore, the community has a lot to do so as to upgrade the living standards and health of its people.

NR443 Guidelines for Caring for Populations
Milestone 3: Intervention and Evaluation
The purpose of this PowerPoint presentation is to provide an opportunity to develop a community health nursing intervention and evaluation tool for your identified community health problem (described in Milestone 2: Assessment and Diagnosis) and identify the components of the nursing process as it applies to a community or population.
This assignment enables the student to meet the following course outcomes.
CO #2. Integrate clinical judgment in professional decision-making and implementation of the nursing process through analysis of community health nursing practice. (PO #4)
CO #6. Recognize effective nursing skills and collaborative techniques used with consumers and other healthcare providers within all levels of healthcare. (PO #2)
CO #8. Incorporate evidence-based practice in the planning of professional nursing care to individuals, families, aggregates, and communities. (PO #8)
You are a Community/Public Health Nurse (C/PHN) working in your setting of choice. You have identified a community health problem and have analyzed the data collected from your windshield survey and assessment & diagnosis assignments (the first two milestones). You have decided on one nursing intervention and need your organization’s approval for funding of this intervention. Your leadership team has agreed to listen to your proposal.
• Choose a community health nurse setting. Some examples of settings are school nurse, parish nurse, home health nurse, nurse working in the health department (be specific to what area in the health department, e.g., WIC, STD clinic, health promotion, maternal-child health, etc.)
• Introduction: Introduce the identified problem, the purpose of the presentation, and reiterate at least one or two important findings that demonstrate this problem in your community (average of 1–2 slides)
• Proposed Intervention: Propose one community health nursing intervention that would address one or more of the major direct or indirect factors that contribute to the problem. Keep in mind the Public Health Intervention Wheel (Nies & McEwen, p. 14, figure 1-3) as your framework (average of 3-4 slides). Your intervention needs to be specific:
o Who is your target population?
o Where is this intervention taking place?
o Will it take place one time or multiple times?
o How will you reach out to your target population?
? How will you get your target population involved?
o What is the CH Nurses role in this intervention?
o Will you collaborate with anyone (e.g., physician’s office, church, local resources, etc.?)
o Is anyone else involved besides yourself (C/PHN)?
? If yes, are they paid or volunteers?
o What level(s) of prevention is your intervention addressing (primary, secondary and/or tertiary prevention)?
• Intervention Justification: Justify why the problem and your nursing interventions should be a priority.
o Based on what you have found in the literature, discuss why these interventions are expected to be effective. Include summarized information from at least two professional scholarly sources related to your interventions (average of 2-3 slides).
• Proposed Evaluation: Your presentation must include at least one proposed quantitative or qualitative evaluation method that you would use to determine whether your intervention is effective. It should include the method you would use along with desired outcomes. Outcome measurement is a crucial piece when implementing interventions. There is a helpful tool in Doc Sharing to assist you with understanding qualitative and quantitative methods of evaluation. (average of 2-3 slides)
o Include discussion about the long-term and short-term impact on your community if the intervention is successful. Keep in mind your desired outcomes when analyzing the evaluation.
• Summary: The summary should reiterate the main points of the presentation and conclude with what you are asking to be accomplished, e.g., “Based on ABC, it is imperative our community has XYZ. Thank you for your consideration.”
• In addition to the slides described above, your presentation should include a title slide, and reference slide. Remember, you are presenting to your leadership team, so the slides should include the most important elements for them to know in short bullet pointed phrases. You may add additional comments in the notes section to clarify information for your instructor.
• Application: Use Microsoft PowerPoint 2010.
• Length: The PowerPoint slide show is expected to be no more than 20 slides in length (not including the title slide and reference list slide).
