Working in the community and with the community can be an exciting and rewarding process and is a critical strategy to extend health beyond healthcare. We can proactively address health needs in a community setting, but community engagement presents different challenges than working in a conventional clinical setting.
This module describes steps to take to develop a community health program or project. Programs can range from a one-time health screening event to an ongoing educational program or collaboration with community residents. No matter the size or scope of a community health project, many of the basic steps are the same.
This training module must be completed, and the test passed with a score of 80% or higher, within the previous 24 months of the submission of the Community Health Activity Request form.
