When considering population health program evaluation and dissemination of results, having a plan for these project areas deserves adequate time for research and preparation, equal to the previous parts of the project. Evaluation and dissemination may have been considered more of an afterthought, but now is given as much attention as the program determines. It also might be easy to pass through theses last stages as the program appears to have been completed, however the project will only be as good as a whole. When beginning a project either at work or home, it is easy to het caught up in finishing rather than enjoying each stage and give it the time and attention it deserves. Stakeholders will be looking for a thorough documentation the program, and may consider this for future program approvals
The Population Health Competencies for Health Professionals include community engagement, community health assessment, community health improvement planning and action, health equity and cultural awareness, systems thinking and organizational planning and management. Through continual revision of my program project, I have had the opportunity to develop a solid understanding and comfort level of these competencies. The weekly discussions and readings helped to reinforce the competencies and provided me with a solid foundation. I have been able to apply the competencies in real life circumstances either at work or when completing course assignments.
Reflecting on the MSN Project presentation session I enjoyed hearing my classmates discuss population health concerns that they are passionate about. Each person’s project was unique, yet clearly and professionally discussed. They all piqued my interest and I wanted to be a part of each one. I also found it amazing the time and effort we were all able to commit, and that that it came to such a wonderful end. The presentation allowed me tie tie up my project in a concise way, so that I can easily reference and use it for future projects I hope to be involved with. I do plan on continuing with my work to improve palliative care understanding and feel that I know have the confidence to move forward. The comments from Chamberlains Professors were supportive, encouraging and much appreciated.
