Community Health Improvement Processes

When communities identify and collaborate on public health concerns, Public Health Nurses (PHNs) participate by bringing experience, data, information , and evidence-based research to the partnership. PHNs work with local people and groups to organize and develop activities/responses to meet those needs.

For example, many community partnerships to decrease domestic/interpersonal violence in Alaskan communities include PHNs who work to increase the use of evidence-based strategies to reduce the incidence of domestic/interpersonal violence.
