This course will help librarians and others involved in health information outreach to design quality programs and garner support for those programs by taking the right first step: collecting community and needs assessment information about the groups of people who will be involved. By the end of the course, participants should know how to collect data that will create a picture of their target community, including its needs, assets, resources, and potential obstacles that may affect the success of health information outreach efforts. Community assessment is the essential fact-finding phase of program development. You form a picture of a target community or user group in order to develop beneficial programs and services for it. But community assessment, particularly for outreach programs, can be so much more than an evaluation activity. It provides opportunities to meet leaders who provide entry into the community, initiate relationships with potential collaborators, and express your interest in the lives of the people you want to serve. In this workshop, participants will learn a four-step process for conducting community assessment that includes data collection, interpretation, and use. The relationship-building potential of each step will be discussed.
