Topic 2.2 Developing Ways to Communicate with Community Members

bullet Further Community Characterization

Once the community is defined and initial contact is made with community members and other agencies, the health assessor or some other member of the health assessment team might want to visit the community to learn more about it before meeting with community members. While inspecting the area, the health assessor might use a demographic tool (7KB PDF file) to help note locations of important community features in relation to the site. This information is helpful in verifying information gathered about the community before visiting the area and in developing communication plans.

From the following list, identify three types of information that a health assessor might observe while visiting the area near a site. To do this, left click on an entry you wish to select and drag and drop it into the green box. Then click on View Correct Selections to check your answers.

Once the community is defined, does that mean the community cannot be redefined during the public health assessment process?
