Ashford HCA 415 Week 3 Essential Services Personal Interview

Essential Services Personal Interview

Select a population (maternal, infant, child, adolescent, young adults, older adults, elderly) and research the most critical health issues affecting this population.

  • Describe the most critical health issues affecting your selected population.
  • Describe at least three public health/community services that exist in your own community to address these issues.
    • Do you feel your organization has made a difference?
    • What are your main barriers and how are the barriers to services being addressed?
    • What are the ethical considerations of your services and how are they addressed?
    • How is your organization funded?
    • What concerns are still unmet in your opinion? Are these areas that will be addressed in the future?
    • What role does your organization play in the overall public health arena?

      Contact one of these services’ directors (or representative) and inquire about the agency’s effectiveness by asking these questions:

  • Present a brief overview of the organization, including its mission and goals/objectives, and then post your interview notes in the discussion forum
  • Your original post must contain at least one additional scholarly source in addition to the textbook.
