In previous years, healthcare was greatly focused on illness and costly restorative measures that occurred during hospitalization. In recent years, more emphasis has been placed on decreasing hospitalization and associated costs through cultivating healthy populations through education and healthcare practices that focus on promoting wellness, disease prevention and management of chronic illness in the outpatient setting. The concept of population health lies in supporting a culture of health though various activities that include research to evaluate health-related trends, consideration of socioeconomic and cultural variables, seeking opportunities to provide health education to support wellness and manage chronic disease as well as developing community based partnerships to enhance access to and delivery of care.
The purpose of this program is to provide an educational forum for nurses and other health professionals to discuss the various components of a population health infrastructure and the key role of nurses within this framework toward cultivating healthy communities.
