Instructions for the Healthy People
The purpose of this discussion is to apply research-based, public health objectives to a selected community aggregate. The documents
Healthy People 2020, and
Healthy People Midcourse Review 2010- Healthy People 2020 will be used by the students. This assignment is based on the aggregate in the community where the students did their preceptorship. The discussion is also based on the community assessment that the students completed in NSG 4411. The point distribution is listed below. The instructions on how to develop the discussion following
APA format on the next page.
6.5 Describe the community where the aggregate lives and then describe the
aggregate using demographic data and characteristics. Discuss some
social, economic, and environmental factors determining health status.
7 Describe the leading causes of death, extent of disability, and morbidity
for this aggregate.
7 Describe the health risk factors and/or stressors facing this aggregate.
30 Discuss three
Healthy People 2020 objectives, which apply to this aggregate.
7.5 According to the
Healthy People 2010 Midcourse Review – Healthy People 2020, what, if any, progress has been made toward achievement of each
Healthy People 2020 objectives cited?
12 Identify the Healthy People 2020 objective you feel to be the most pertinent to your aggregate, identify, and discuss a strategy to promote health for this aggregate through inter-and intra-professional communication.
30 Use three peer reviewed scholarly-based articles (within last 5 years) to
validate possible interventions for improving the health status of the
assigned aggregate based on your chosen Healthy People 2020 objective.

The subject of this is the AGGREGATE (vulnerable population) and the community that the aggregate lives in. For example, the aggregate could be children living in poverty, maybe in the rural community of Hurtsboro, AL. The students will be working with the aggregate population they chose during the preceptorship experience from NSG 4411. Some of the information from the NSG 4411 Community Assessment Project may be useful in writing this , however, do not cut and paste directly from the previous assignment. (See below)
The discussion has seven parts to it:
1. a. Describe the aggregate’s location using demographic data: You may pull in any
demographics you used from your Community Assessment, such as population, averages,
most common occupations, race, and education and income levels. Remember to
paraphrase the information you have previously written. You should also briefly
describe the aggregate. The idea is to give a snapshot of this aggregate and where this
A very helpful website to access is
http://factfinder.census.gov/ go to fast access, enter
your community (city, state) then click on “fact sheet” and “people” for details about your
community. You will need to cite this information and list in your references.
b. The environmental and economic conditions really do affect the aggregates’ health care
needs. What are some of the social, economic, and environmental factors that determines
the health status of your aggregate population?
2. Describe the leading causes of death, extent of disability, and morbidity-(illness) for this
aggregate-might not find death for children but could be adults such as heart disease for
obese children. This may be based on census data that you find on the web for this
aggregate, or your own observations of people in that community.
3. Describe the health risk factors or stressors facing this aggregate: This is based on your
own observations and research findings (such as incidence or prevalence of poverty of
children in rural areas and any health risk conditions such as lack of immunizations or
4. Discuss three
Healthy People 2020 objectives (not topics) which apply to your aggregate:
