DQ2 Major Health Issues
Today, C/PHNs are faced with a multiplicity of population based health problems within the community. Such public health problems as the quality of a community’s drinking water, the outbreak of Zika virus in the US, caring for returning veterans, an aging and more diverse population, as well as a major heroin epidemic further increase the burden on communities, services, and resources.  One of the core competencies for Public Health Nursing is the ability to describe the characteristics of a population-based health problem.  In this discussion, you will address this competency as you:

Describe the structures and government interventions in place in your community/state to address this issues.
Identify any gaps you perceive in how your community is dealing with this population based health problem.
Describe the steps a C/PHN would take to address your community’s population based health problem.
