An understanding of the concepts and theories underpinning health needs assessment.
Here you may want to discuss the different types of needs and how these can be classified and measured. E.g. You may wish to make reference to the theories put forward by Maslow and Bradshaw. To
demonstrate additional readying, you may wish to include information from Gough and Doyal. You may also want to provide examples from the content of the early lectures and / or the HNA document to
demonstrate your ability to apply this knowledge.
An awareness of the different approaches that may be taken to undertaking health needs assessment projects.
For this section you may wish to discuss the different approaches to HNA that could be utilised and their suitability to different situation. It would be useful if you provided examples to
demonstrate the points that you are making and not all of these will need to come from your HNA document. By doing this you will be able to add to your reference list and demonstrate your wider
reading around the subject.
The ability to critically review an existing health needs assessment report, particularly in terms of assessing its strengths and weaknesses in relation to the purpose for which it was undertaken.
Here you may wish to use the theories and information that you have presented above to be critical about the HNA document that you have chosen. Analyse the suitability of the approaches used in
this situation, could a different approach have yielded different results and would these have been more or less useful? Consider what needs have been highlighted and what needs may have been
overlooked. How have these been measured and could the use of different measurement tools resulted in different outcomes. What are the strengths and weaknesses of these methods and therefore of
this document?
