ssessment 2: Community Assessment

Description/Focus: Community Assessment
Length: 1000 words
Task: Community assessment is described as a tool and intervention. As
a tool, it enables the identification of strengths, weaknesses,
opportunities and threats in a community, providing information
that assists a health practitioner to work with a community to
address their needs. As an intervention, it promotes community
participation in the assessment process, ownership of the findings
and engagement with the outcomes. This ownership promotes
community growth and development. (McMurray & Clendon,

Undertake a literature search and write a report on the steps
involved in undertaking a community assessment.
Preparation: Read the question carefully and identify the key areas you need
to address. Revise lectures and readings; post any questions on
the discussion board under the relevant thread. Revise CDU
Governance Documents under ‘Unit Information’. When writing
