Definition

Health – (WHO) state of complete physical, mental and social well being, not merely
the absence of disease or infirmity

Public health – (Dr. C.E. Winslow) the science and art of preventing disease,
prolonging life, promoting health and efficiency through organized
community effeort.

Community Health Nursing (Jacobson)- is a learned practice discipline with the


ultimate goal of contributing as individual and in collaboration with others to
the promotion of clients optimum level of function through teaching and
delivery of care.

Factors affecting Optimum Level of Function (OLOF)

1. Political
2. Behavioral
3. hereditary
4. Health Care Delivery System
5. Environmental Influences
6. Socio economic Influences

Concepts

1. The primary focus of community health nursing practice is on health


promotion.
2. Community health nurses are generalist in term of their practice through life
but the whole community.
3. Community health nurses are generalist in terms of their practice through
life continuity in its full range of health problems and needs.
4. The nature of CHN practice requires that current knowledge derived from
the biological, social science, ecology, clinical nursing and community health
organizations be utilized
5. Contact with the client and or family may continue over a long period of time
which includes all ages and all types of health care.
6. The dynamic process of assessing, planning, implementing and intervening
provide measurements of progress, evaluation and a continuum of the cycle
until the termination of nursing is implicit in the practice of community
health nursing.

Principles

1. CHN is based on recognized needs of communities, families, groups and


individuals.

7. There must be a provision for period’s evaluation of community health team.
8. Opportunities for continuation staff education programs nurses must be
provided by the CHN agency. The community health nurse also has a
responsibility for his/her own professional growth.
9. The community health nurse makes use of available community health
resources.
10. The community health nurse utilizes the already existing active organized
groups in the community.
11. There must be provision for educative supervision CHN
12. There should be accurate recording and reporting in CHN.

Interview
Statistics
Epidemiological studies

Common indicators of health status

 Morbidity
 Mortality

Categories of Health Problems

1. Health Deficit (HD)- instances of failure in health maintenance ( dse,


disability, dev’tl lag)
ö -ex. Dse/ illness- URTI, marasmus, scabies, edema
 disabilities- blindness, polio, colorblindness, deafness
 dev’tl problems like mental retardatx, gigantism, hormonal,
dwarfism

 Health Treat (HT)- conditions conducive to dse, accidents or failure to realize


one’s health potential
ö healthy people
ö ex. Family hx of illness- hereditary like DM, HPN
 nutritional problems- eating salty foods
 personal behavior- smoking, self-medication, sexual practices,
drugs, excessive drinking
 inherent personality char- short temperedness, short attn span
 short cross infectx
 poor home envi
 lack/inadequate immunization
 hazards- fire, falls, or accidents
 family size beyond what resources can provide
ö Foreseeable Crisis (FC)- anticipated periods of unusual demand on indiv
or fam in terms of adjustment or family resources ( nature situatxs)
ö ex. Entrance in school
 adolescents (circumcision, menarchs, pubarche
 courtship (falling in love, breaking up)
 marriage, pregnancy, abortion, puerperium
 death
 unemployment, transfer or relocation
 graduation, board exam
Identify the ff:
Ex: Active TB- HD
45 yr, old male smoke- HT
Sedimentary health style- Ht
Early pregnancy- FC

Fertility Rate
1. CBR (Crude birth rate)- relative pop due to births
Total number of births in a calendar year
CBR= Birth x 1000
Pop ex. 25.8= CBR
There are 26 births in every 1000 pop
2. General Fertility Rate (GFR) - true fertility rate – specific segments of pop that is
fertile

GFR= ________Birth___________ x 1000


Pop of women (15 to 44 yo)

Ex. GRF=32 There are 32 births in every woman in 15-44

Mortality Rates
1.Crude Death Rate ____ x 1000
Decrease in pop due to death
CDR= death x 1000
Pop
Ex. CDR= 6 there are 6 in every 1000 pop

2. Specific Mortality Rate- can apply to any pop grp


SMR = death from or particulare grp x 1000
Pop of that grp
a. SMR (males) = death (males) x 1000
pop of males
b. SMR (females) = death of females 15-44
pop of females 15-44
 Infant Mortality Rate: IMR= Death 0 -1 year x 1000
Births
 Neonatal Mortality Rate: NMR= deaths 0-28 days x 1000
Births
 Post Neonatal Mortality Rate: PNMR = deaths 28 days to 1 year x 1000
Births
NMR + PNMR = IMR
Neonatal deaths + Post neonatal deaths= Infant deaths
Ex. Birth 200
NMR= 20
Death – 28 to 1
NMR + PNMR = IMR
20 + 10 = 30 (ANS)
2_ x 1000 = 1000 = 10
200 100

 Maternal Mortality Rate (MMR)


MMR= death of women r/t pregnancy, delivery, & puerperium x 1000
Births
Ex. IMR = 30 There are 30 infant deaths in every 1000 births

NMR = 20 There are 20 neonatal deaths in every 1000 births


PNMR = 10
MMR = .92

 Proportionate Mortality Rate = PMR ( for any grp)


PMR= death from a particular grp x 100
total death
Ex. 52% PMR of males = deaths of males x 100
total deaths
In every 100 death, 52 are males

PMR = deaths 0-1 x 100


0.1 total deaths

PROPORTIONATE MORTALITY INDICATOR


A. Swaroop’s Index = SI
SI = death of 50 yrs & up x 100
total deaths
The SI, the better the situation is!

B. Relative importance of a killer ( TB, heart dse, diarrhea)


Death due to TB x 100
total deaths

PMR = 30%
TB
--In every 100 deaths, 30 are due to TB

 Case Fatality Rate (CFR)


ö How is survival rate, how strong is killing power, prognosis
CFR= death due to part cause x 100
total cases

Ex. CFR = 98
HIV

___death HIV___ x 100


Total cases of TB
In every 100 cases of HIV, there are 98 deaths

 Cause-of-death Rate (mortality rate)


ö Rank as a killer

C of DR= death due to particular cause x 100,000


total pop

Ex. C of DR =320
TB

In every 100,000 pop there are 320 deaths due to TB

 Prevalence Rate = (Morbidity rate)


ö Rank as a common dise
PR = old and new case of TB x 100,000
TB total pop

Ex. PR = old & new case of TB x 100,000


TB
Ex. PR = 326
TB

There are 326 cases of TB out of 100,000 population.

 Incidence Rate
IR= ___new cases___ x 100,000
pop at risk

Swaroff’s Index

Total death of a person aging above 50 X 100


Total number of deaths of all ages

Situation: Barangay X has a total population of 1362 for the year 1999-2000 bases
on the following date, solve for the swaroff’s index, infant mortality rate, crude
death rate and the maternal mortality rate

Swarrof’s index= 7/57 x 100= 12.8

IMR= 17/1294 x 1,000 = 13 IR= 6/1362 x 1,000= 4090

CBR= 1294/1362 x 1,000 = 950

CDR= 57/1362 x 1,000= 42

MMR= 3/1294 x 1,000 = 2.33
