  5. ASSESSMENT IS… All the activities involved in community diagnosis: • Surveillance • Needs assessment • Analysis of cause of problems

  6. ASSESSMENT IS… • Collection and interpretation of data • Case-finding • Monitoring and forecasting trends • Research and evaluation

  7. Vital statistics Epidemiology Health screening Special disease or population registries Laboratory test data Hospital discharge data Research Behavioral Risk Factor Data ASSESSMENT DATA SOURCES: Personal Health Data:

  8. Health resource inventory Public forums Polling Special methods- APEX, PH part 2, PATCH, MAPP, etc Information from private & non-profit providers Research ASSESSMENT DATA SOURCES: Data about community concerns & resources:

The capacity of the public health system is its ability to perform the core functions of assessment, policy development, and assurance on a continuous, consistent basis made possible by maintenance of the basic infrastructure of the public health system, including human, capital, and technology resources. The smooth running of the system requires the application of sound leadership skills at all levels of the public health system. -Modified from the Washington State Public Improvement Plan, March 1994
