Community Assessment

Although you will not actually go out and assess an actual community, in this assignment you will think through the process of gathering information about the community

  • To ease this process, choose a community you are familiar with, e.g., your own home community; a community you are currently working within; or a community for which you have some familiarity. You should also select a community relevant to socially excluded, marginalized, and/or at-risk populations addressed in this course.
  • Selected course materials that, e.g., are related to goals, objectives, theory, methods, tools, resources, advocacy, and ethical considerations, with attention to cultural diversity will help guide you through the community assessment process.

Your community assessment should address the following areas:

  1. Identify and define the community you are assessing: What are the parameters of your selected community?
  2. Why have you chosen this community as the focus for this particular assessment – and the eventual community development political action project?
  3. What kind of assessment would you do in order to meet your needs for the future development of a community development or political action project, e.g., methods or approaches, process, tools, resources, etc.? (such as a needs assessment). Use the course material to assist you.
  4. Why would you do this type of assessment, i.e., what is your rationale? Where would you go for information and why? * Be specific about where you would find/access information for your community assessment – and why you selected these sources etc…

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • What is going on in the selected community?
  • What are the identified community’s strengths and/or challenges (or limitations)?
  • What organizations or services may already be involved &/or available in this community?
  • Who are the gatekeepers and stakeholders? How would you communicate with these people about the issue/s?

Stakeholders: People and/or groups who have a stake or interest in this issue/s. Gatekeepers: People who can open doors, i.e., positively facilitate the program and/or people who can close doors, i.e., create barriers to positive health promoting change.

  • Whose ideas or ‘voices’ may not be heard regarding this issue?
  • How might you engage/include them in the community assessment process?
    • Attention to diverse socially excluded, marginalized, and/or at-risk populations.
  • What are the strengths and limitations of the approach/es you chose for this community assessment? Is there anything that the strategies you have identified will not give you? Are there any other strategies that you could have used?
  • What are the advocacy and ethical considerations?
  • NOTE: Fully reference course concepts, theory, strategies, and approaches to support your community assessment, approaches, and analysis, using APA 7th ed.

Political Action/ Advocacy: Although you will not actually go out and complete your political action

  1. A brief description of your political action project. What is the intervention? (ie. Safe injection site, clean water, immunizations, health teaching program, etc…)
  2. Why do you select this community and/or issue? (Choose an at-risk population: LGBTQ, Indigenous, elderly, homeless, etc…)
  3. A brief description of what theories, approaches, strategies, and political actions you
  4. Plan to take, while maintaining a focus on socially excluded, marginalized &/or at risk populations.
  5. Ethical considerations related to the development, implementation, and implications of this political action.
  6. What health promoting outcome/s, in relation to your political action project, that you as a group would like to see. How do you plan to evaluate this anticipated outcome? (ie. Survey, focus groups, interviews, etc.. apply the knowledge from your Research Methods course).
  7. What have you, as a group, learned in the process of working together on this community development political action project?
  8. While you are actually presenting to your class colleagues, the political action should have a designated audience relevant to the political action itself.

For example, you may decide to present to:

  • A funding agency, e.g., municipal government, research funding agency, etc.
  • A specific group in your selected community (e.g., community leaders associated with e.g., a cross cultural community centre, immigrant health care services, etc.);
  • The leadership team in, e.g., your community nursing location, educational institution, etc.
  • The media via a press release/announcement.
  • The people in the community itself that you are involved in doing your community assessment and/or community development project etc., i.e., those who would be directly affected by your planned community development political action project.
  • A group of social service and/or health care workers who are also working in this same community and with whom you hope to build a coalition to bring about health promoting changes.
  • A petition related to your identified issue/s combined with a press release.
  • An opinion article for the local or national newspaper.
  • Direct action: For example, plans for a demonstration; rally; town hall meeting, etc.
  • Briefing notes for a talk show or interview for TV.
  • A website, highlighting the importance of issues identified, directed towards a designated audience.
