Health Plan 2013

 

COMMUNITY HEALTH ASSESSMENT 2013


In 2011 Wayne Healthcare participated in the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) survey to assess the health needs of the residents of Darke County, Ohio.  In January of 2012 Wayne Healthcare representatives joined other Darke County community leaders to form three task forces to identify critical health priorities.  As detailed in the Darke County Community Health Plan 2012, the task forces selected five areas of health needs as priorities to focus on as detailed below:

 

1.      Nutrition and Physical Activity

·         Changing residents’ mindsets towards physical activity and nutrition

2.      Preventive Health

·         Increasing awareness and utilization of dental services

·         Increasing awareness and utilization of mental health services

3.      Youth Health and Well-Being

·         Educating school staff about mental health policies and procedures

·         Reducing STD rates among youth

Wayne Healthcare was designated as the Lead Agent for Task Force 1 – Nutrition and Physical Activity – and challenged to develop and implement solutions relating to priority 1 (Changing residents’ mindsets towards physical activity and nutrition.) 

The goal is to institute practices within Wayne Healthcare and other local health agencies that will promote improved attitudes towards living healthy lifestyles.

 


 

COMMUNITY HEALTH IMPLEMENTATION


PLAN 2013  
 

 

Wayne HealthCare referred primarily to the CDC (Center for Disease Control) Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) survey from 2011 along with other local surveys and data, to create and implement a plan to address the health needs of the local Darke County community.   Assessment of the health needs of local residents indicated a priority to “change residents’ mindsets towards physical activity and nutrition.”  As the lead agent of the Nutrition and Physical Activity Task Force, Wayne HealthCare will be developing strategies to further this goal. 


Representatives from Wayne HealthCare attend quarterly meetings with other representatives from local agencies (Darke County Health Department, Darke County Mental Health, Family Health, etc.) to discuss the implementation of the Darke County Community Health Plan 2012. 


Wayne HealthCare engaged the community in various health and wellness events during 2013.

 Key Strategies for 2013:

·        Improve the health of local residents was through Motivational Interviewing.  Karen Droesch, registered dietitian educator at Wayne HealthCare led a presentation on Motivational Interviewing at the hospital. DVD’s are available for use by any of the agencies participating in the community health needs assessment. 

 

·       The Wayne HealthCare Challenge “Get Moving Series” began in the spring of 2013. The challenge is a wellness initiative formed in cooperation with local businesses and lifestyle interest groups to make our community healthier. The challenge promotes community health through 14, 5K run/walk events in the local area. Race points are earned for participation and competitive achievement. Each race allows for a sponsor or health related organization to provide awareness information, interactive games, and provide health screenings.

 

·        A twelve week plan of action is scheduled to begin at Wayne HealthCare from August 2013 until November 2013 to reduce weight and change lifestyle choices.  The goal is to move the program to be open to the Community beginning in 2014.  These action steps and timelines will be continuously reviewed throughout 2013 and may be altered or revised as needed.
