3436.0 Creative Practice Models that Promote and Improve Health

Monday, November 9, 2009: 4:30 PM
This session focuses on models of practice that public health nurses can use in partnership with the communities they serve. Nursing educators can assist students with the use of logic models as a planning strategy with community members, and also teach clinicians to use behavioral contracting as a strategy to promote positive healthy change. Community outreach efforts using alternative clinic hours, a chronic care improvement initiative, and a model for providing early childhood services to pregnant women and family members will be shared to demonstrate creative ways of intervening with community members to improve health.
Session Objectives: 1. Discuss at least one innovative practice model for improving the public's health. 2. Describe at least two potential outcomes of a chronic care improvement initiative. 3. Explain how nurse educators can use logic models or behavioral contracting to help students intervene effectively with clients.
