Community Health Assessment Needs Assessment A community health assessment is a fundamental instrument of public health practice. Its objective is to depict the health of the community, by presenting information on health standing, community health needs, resources, and epidemiologic and other studies of present local health problems. It seeks to recognize target populations that may be at augmented risk of poor health results and to increase a better understanding of their needs, as well as evaluates the larger community surroundings and how it relate to the health of people. It also identifies those areas where better information is desired, particularly information on health differences amid different subpopulations, quality of health care, and the incidence and severity of disabilities in the population. The Community Health Assessment is the foundation for all local public health development, giving the local health component the instance to recognize and network with key community leaders, businesses and concerned residents about health priorities and concerns. This information shapes the foundation of improving the health status of the community by way of a strategic plan (The Municipal Public Health Services Plan Community Health Assessment Guidance and Format, n.d.).
What is the role of a community nurse in CLINICAL AUDIT? The primary goal of the clinical audit is to improve the quality of patient care. Therefore the role of the community nurse in the clinical audit is to work toward this end goal. Specific duties that define the community nurse's role in the clinical audit will vary depending on environmental variables. According to Collis (2006), the role of the community nurse in the clinical audit is as change agent. To be a change agent, the nurse engages every possible tool and strategy used in the audit process. The community nurse is also in a position of leadership, and is someone who "who empowers, encourages and enables staff to undertake audit by providing the necessary support and resources," (Collis, 2006). Innovation is also part of the community nurse's role in the clinical audit, which requires deft creative thinking skills (Collis, 2006). Moreover, a community nurse can serve to verify data via the use of health informatics and thereby also ensure the timeliness of the audit reporting (Edwards, Pickard & Van Burkel 1991). The community nurse also has the opportunity to solicit as much patient involvement and support as possible, as patient support is critical to the success of the audit (Collis, 2006).

When public health nurses collaborate with individuals, the focus is on promoting awareness, behaviors, and values that maintain and improve health, with the ultimate goal being of bettering the overall health of the population. These actions are also essential when interacting with families and communities, where the aim is in promoting family and community standards, attitudes, knowledge, and behaviors that improve their overall health. So in order to have positive outcomes the public health nurses need to also consider how essential it is to work with clients as equal partners. (p Book 8). The public health nurse’s actions must enhance understanding and the need for widespread health planning in collaboration with communities and populations, focused upon the perceptions, priorities, and values of the population.

Every Successful Business depends upon Project and Program Management. The Program Management is the discipline of managing of interdependent groups of project and it is a great challenging and complex process of coordinating several related product development projects, often with the intention of improving the performance of a company or an organization. Mostly, those are governed by a contract between the companies or enterprises. For Program success good governance is very critical element in any program management.

Programme Management Approach There is confusion in literature regarding the definition of programme management. Tjahjana, Dwyer and Habib (2009) describe programme management as the alignment of ongoing projects within an organization. Pennypacker and Ritchie (2005), on the other hand, define it as the application of knowledge, skills and techniques to programme activities to meet the programme requirements. Morris and Jamieson (2004) argue that most companies consider that programme management implies the management of business benefits as well as the ideas of the product, brand, or resource management. It is about the daily management of programmes to deliver business value. Programme management is a fundamental method for ensuring maximum benefits for an organisation from integration of project management activities. It is a tool of strategic reflection (Morris and Jamieson, 2004).
