Summarize Needs and Resources Assessment
As your team gets ready to set priorities, it may help members to review what you learned from assessing your needs and resources.
Options for Reviewing
- Prepare a summary or overview to present to your team.
- Have members review what was shared with the community (e.g., community presentations, fact sheets, reports, local media stories).
- Use the Rankings model as a framework for sharing what you’ve learned. For example, if you discovered that there are few healthy food outlets in your community, use the visual of the Rankings model to show that data as part of “diet and exercise” health factors.
- Zero in on the biggest opportunities for improvement. For example, obesity is an issue in most communities. Digging deeper into obesity by population groups and zip code/neighborhood can help you focus where there’s greatest need.
