How might you communicate this to other communities or internationally?
Imagine that you are a public health nurse, and you and your colleagues have determined that the threat of a deadly new strain of influenza indicates a need for a mass inoculation program in your community. What public health data would have been used to determine the need for such a program? Where would you locate public health data? What data will be collected to determine the success of such a program? How might you communicate this to other communities or internationally?
Think of the coronavirus pandemic and the steps that had to be implemented in a short period of time for the safety of the public. According to Nussbaumer-Streit et. al. (2020), modeling studies were used to make educated predictions of the impact of quarantine with other protective measures (limited travel, wearing masks, avoiding large crowds, social distancing) showed that up to 75% of deaths related to COVID-19 might be prevented. This is a very timely discussion this week and I look forward to your thoughts!
