PART 1: Defining the Health Issue: Arthritis, Osteoporosis, and Chronic Back Conditions

You will begin your strategic plan by defining a specific health issue. Imagine that you are a director or manager

for a public health organization, and you will:

Identify a health issue aligned with Health People 2020.

Discover a specific health issue’s objective per the Healthy People 2020 planning site.

(Please note: You may use the objective that you had evaluated in Unit 3 or select a different objective.)

To demonstrate your ability to define a relevant public health issue, you will perform three skills:

1. Summarize the health topic/issue by magnitude, extent and at-risk populations/communities.

2. Review at least five authoritative sources relevant to the current health issue within a brief literature review.

3. Outline the fundamental importance of addressing the public health issue.

PART 2 – Evaluating the Health Issue (Refer to the detailed breakdown below.)

After gaining a foundational understanding of the health issue, you will:

Utilize analytical techniques to evaluate ways to address the problem.

Develop evidence to resolve the issue.

Form the basis of an action plan.

To demonstrate your ability to evaluate a public health issue, you will perform three analytical techniques:

Prepare a health problem analysis model for your public health issue.

Conduct a force field analysis to identify barriers or supportive factors.

Illustrate a fishbone diagram to highlight the underlying reasons for the problem.

PART 3 – Create a Strategic plan (Refer to the detailed breakdown below.)

With evidence to support the relevance and importance of your health issue (part 1) and analysis to highlight ways

to resolve (part 2), you may now work toward forming a strategic plan. To complete part 3, you will:

Define the public health VMOSA (i.e., vision, mission, objectives, strategies, and action plan) for

your initiative, program, or project.

Articulate a feasible timeline and necessary resources for each task in the action plan.

Connect the public health initiative, program, or project with a stakeholder analysis.

Detailed breakdown of Part 2:

Section 2.1 – Health Problem Analysis: This section will require you to create a flow chart. If using Microsoft Office 365 (or 2016), you may use the “horizontal labeled hierarchy” SmartArt option, accessible from the “SmartArt” area of the “Insert” tab. You may find many resources on the Internet by searching for “Health Problem Analysis Model” or “Health Problem Analysis Worksheet” but here is a resource: http://www.orau.gov/cdcynergy/soc2web/Content/activeinformation/resources/SOC_h ealth_problem_analysis_worksheet2.pdf. You should place your HP2020 objective as the “health problem” and populate the follow chart with risk factors and direct/indirect contributing factors. For your HP2020 objective, you should have 2 risk factors listed, 3 direct contributing factors per risk factor (6 total), and 3 indirect contributing factors per direct contributing factor (18 total). When you complete the flowchart, please be concise and remember to label the levels as “health problem,” “risk factors,” “direct contributing factors,” and “indirect contributing factors.” (This figure should take up about 1 page in length.) Section 2.2 – Force Field Analysis: Force field analysis is a very common technique to further understand the forces that affect a health issue. It is rather simple to complete too. See

http://literacy.kent.edu/eureka/strategies/force_field_analysis.pdf for more information. You may complete the force field analysis in Microsoft Word by using the various shapes available under the “Insert” tab. (This figure should take up about 1 page in length.) Section 2.3 – Fishbone Diagram: Fishbone diagram is a technique used to understand the “cause and effect” relationships across a system, organization, or community/population. See http://www.health.state.mn.us/divs/opi/qi/toolbox/fishbone.html for more information. Create a Fishbone Diagram with your HP2020 as the “main problem” in the box of the Fishbone Diagram. Create at least 5 categories that diverge from the horizontal line. Finally, flesh out each category with at least 2 subcategories each. See example in the link provided for high-quality work. (This diagram should take up about 1 page in length.)

Detailed breakdown of Part 3:

Leaders must be able to apply strategic thinking as it relates to public health initiatives, interventions, or programs. Strategic thinking involves the ability to align efforts with an organization’s broader vision or mission. This will always require an evidence-based approach — the ability to make decisions based on tangible data rather than “whims” or “instinct” or what may seem like “common sense.” After completing part 2, you should have a keen understanding of using an evidence based approach.

In public health, you will often define the public health project’s vision, mission, objectives, strategies and action plan(s). This is sometimes abbreviated as VMOSA or strategic planning. Strategic planning is a technique used in decision making and leadership within health organizations.

Additionally, you may find this site helpful: http://ctb.ku.edu/en/table-of- contents/structure/strategic-planning/vmos a/main To ensure that you have completed all parts of the VMOSA, please review this checklist: http://ctb.ku.edu/en/table-of-contents/structure/strategic- planning/vmos a/checklist You may also conduct an Internet search (Google) with the keywords “Public Health VMOSA PDF .Gov” to find additional resources.

Sections of Part 3:

Section 3.1 – Vision statement: You will participate in creating the vision statement for the proposed public health project. Vision statements are about the best possible outcome. This would be phrased as “where you want to end up.” See http://ctb.ku.edu/en/table-of -contents/structure/strategic- planning/vision-mission- statements/main for more information. Your vision statement should be introduced by a one-paragraph explanation on the context for the vision. This vision statement (i.e., short phrase or sentence) will then follow the explanation. Section 3.2 – Mission statement: The mission statement should convey the purpose of the project: “what” is going to get accomplished and “how” the project will be completed. See http://ctb.ku.edu/en/table-of -contents/structure/strategic- planning/vision-mission-statements/main for more information. Your mission statement should be about 1-2 sentences in length, with a preceding introductory paragraph explaining the mission. Section 3.3 – Objectives: The objectives are the means by which the mission and vision are achieved. See http://ctb.ku.edu/en/table-of -contents/structure/strategic- planning/create- objectives/main for more information. Public health project objectives can be behavioral, community-level outcome, or process oriented. Please create at least 6 objectives total, with at least 2 behavioral, 2 community-level outcome, and 2 process oriented objectives. Objectives should be preceded with an introductory paragraph. Each objective should use the S.M.A.R.T.+C approach as indicated in the Community Toolbox link. You should outline your objectives by orientation

(behavioral, community-level, and process). Section 3.4 – Strategies: The strategies deployed in a public health project inform on the ways in which the objectives are met. Strategies may be broad or specific. Broad strategies usually entail larger concepts or tasks, such as health policy/advocacy, media campaigns, social marketing, community/neighborhood organizing, and building a coalition among community stakeholders. The broad strategies would require separate planning and smaller project management approaches. Specific strategies usually address a tactic to address a specific area of concern, such as particular policy changes, addressing health access or barriers, or providing health education/promotion efforts. Public health efforts should foster various strategies in meeting objectives. Therefore, provide a list of 4 strategies (one phrase or sentence in length), with at least 2 broad strategies and 2 specific strategies. Your strategies should be preceded by an introductory paragraph. See http://ctb.ku.edu/en/table-of – contents/structure/strategic-planning/develop-strategies/main for more information. In particular, please ensure each strategy meets the criteria outlined in this web resource from the Community Toolbox. Section 3.5 – Action Plan: Your action plan will detail the specific inputs, process, outputs and results needed to support your public health initiative, intervention or project. See http://ctb.ku.edu/en/table-of-contents/structure/strategic- planning/develop-ac tion-plans/main for more information. Although this section can be lengthy, you will use a tabular approach as exemplified in this resource: http://eclkc.ohs.acf.hhs.gov/hslc/tta-system/operations/docs/sample-ac tion-plan.pdf. Therefore, you will create a table with 9 columns: (1) Objective; (2) Strategy; (3) Action Step; (4) Responsible Party; (5) Anticipated Deadline; (6) Funding Needed; (7) Other Resources Needed; (8) Potential Barriers, Resistance, or Challenges; and (9) Potential Collaborators. Your table should contain at least 10 action steps. (Note: You do not need exact funding amounts, an estimate will suffice for this Assignment.)
