Community Windshield Survey

Task:

In this assignment, you will conduct a windshield survey of your community.

Directions:

Collecting assessment data on the physical environment is referred to as a windshield survey. The windshield survey reflects what one can view from a car window as one drives through a community or during a walking tour of areas where cars are limited. The driving or walking tour allows the community nurse to make observations of various community components including but not limited to:
Housing
Open spaces
Parks
Transportation
Race
Cultural diversity
Restaurants
Grocery stores
Health care facilities
Post offices

Conduct a windshield survey of your community, focusing specifically on anything that influences community health. Compile your findings into a spreadsheet or document.

Then, analyze your findings and create a 12- to 15-slide Microsoft PowerPoint presentation in which you:
Describe the community you have selected for your windshield survey and rationale for selecting this community.
Describe the various cultural, ethnic, and religious groups you are observing.
Identify and explain the specific health care needs of the community.
Evaluate and describe community resources available to meet the health care needs of the community and whether they are adequate.
Analyze the resources and explain how the community nurse can improve and promote healthy behaviors in the community.
Identify two strategies you can integrate into your nursing practice and explain how those strategies address nursing in a variety of community settings.
Describe how you can integrate what you learned from the windshield survey into your role as a nurse.

Special Note:

The title page and reference pages do not count as part of the slide limit.

Your final product will be a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation. Your presentation should be approximately 12-15 slides in length and utilize a minimum of 4 peer-reviewed scholarly references. You must also include detailed speaking notes. Write in a concise and organized manner demonstrating ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources; and display accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
