Nurses as Change Agents in the Community

In the chapter, How Community-Based Organizations Are Addressing Nursings Role in Transforming Health Care, the authors describe the community as the focus of advocacy action for change. They list a series of questions that help community teams develop organizing principles to guide their interventions, and the aim is to attack social determinants of health to make community change. Suppose a community team identifies lack of access to exercise modalities as a public health issue. If the team were to determine that pedestrian walkways need to be constructed:

  • Discuss at least two factors that would facilitate the development of the walkways.
  • Discuss at least two factors that would hinder the development of the walkways. 
    • Include in your discussions ways that the team might work to overcome those hindrances.
