Needs Assessment  When you are engaged in program planning, a needs assessment helps to determine the actuality and details of a specific problem. It also addresses how the target population views the problem—which is critical since their perspective and motivation to change are essential for the success of the program.   In this week’s video, the necessity of appraising a community’s assets as well as its challenges is evident as Dr. Donna Shambley-Ebron and Dr. Rebecca Lee discuss needs assessments. What additional insights have you gleaned from the Learning Resources that you intend to apply to your program?   For this Discussion, you develop a framework for completing a needs assessment for your program. To do this effectively, it is essential to begin with the program and the population you have identified and then develop an appropriate approach for conducting a needs assessment. This also leads to consideration of the types of data needed and the data collection methods to be used. To prepare: Consider      aspects of your problem and population (breast cancer in African American women      in the USA) as you review the information on needs assessment presented in      the Learning Resources. How      would you conduct a needs assessment? What considerations would influence      your decision making about this process? What      would be the most efficient and effective methods for collecting data?      What challenges could be encountered?   By tomorrow Wednesday 12/19/18 2 pm, write a minimum of 550 words essay in APA format with at least 3 references from the list of required readings below. Include all headers as numbered below: Post a cohesive scholarly response that addresses the following: 1) Discuss how you would conduct a needs assessment for your selected problem and the target population. Why is this approach appropriate for the problem you have identified? Support your response with evidence from the literature.   2) Describe your proposed data collection methods and evaluate any challenges you might encounter. Required Readings Assessment and Planning in Health Programs Chapter 1, “Assessment for Developing Programs and Interventions: The Big Picture” Chapter 1 notes the importance of looking not just at needs but also the assets associated with the target population and environment; that is, assessing what needs to be addressed given the assets that are present. Chapter 3, “Data Collection Strategies for Needs Assessments and Evaluations” In Chapter 3, the authors examine data collection, a key element of needs assessments. They also indicate that it is wise to plan ahead and consider data collection strategies for evaluation at the same time. Kettner, P. M., Moroney, R. M., & Martin, L. L. (2017).
