What is health? § Health-illness continuum § High-level wellness § Agent-host-environment § Health belief § Evolutionary-based § Health promotion § WHO definition
§ What is community health? § part of paramedical and medical intervention/ approach which is concerned on the health of the whole population § aims:1. health promotion2. disease prevention3. management of factors affecting health
§ What is nursing?- assisting sick individuals to become healthy and healthy individuals achieve optimum wellness
Public Health Nursing: the term used before for Community Health NursingAccording to Dr. C.E. Winslow, Public Health is a science & art of 3 P’s§ Prevention of Disease§ Prolonging life§ Promotion of health and efficiency through organized community effort
§ What is Community Health Nursing? “The utilization of the nursing process in the different levels of clientele-individuals, families, population groups and communities, concerned with the promotion of health, prevention of disease and disability and rehabilitation.” - Maglaya, et al
COMMUNITY HEALTH NURSING (CHN):§ a specialized field of nursing practice§ a science of Public Health combined with Public Health Nursing Skills and Social Assistance with the goal of raising the level of health of the citizenry, to raise optimum level of functioning of the citizenry (Characteristic of CHN)
BASIC PRINCIPLES OF CHNü The community is the patient in CHN, the family is the unit of care and there are four levels of clientele: individual, family, population group (those who share common characteristics, developmental stages and common exposure to health problems – e.g. children, elderly), and the community.ü In CHN, the client is considered as an ACTIVE partner NOT PASSIVE recipient of care
BASIC PRINCIPLES OF CHNü CHN practice is affected by developments in health technology, in particular, changes in society, in generalü The goal of CHN is achieved through multi-sectoral effortsü CHN is a part of health care system and the larger human services system.
ROLES OF THE PUBLIC HEALTH NURSEClinician, who is a health care provider, taking care of the sick people at home or in the RHUHealth Educator, who aims towards health promotion and illness prevention through dissemination of correct information; educating peopleFacilitator, who establishes multi-sectoral linkages by referral systemSupervisor, who monitors and supervises the performance of midwives

UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE (UHC), ALSO REFERRED TO AS KALUSUGAN PANGKALAHATAN (KP)is the “provision to every Filipino of the highest possible quality of health care that is accessible, efficient, equitably distributed, adequately funded, fairly financed, and appropriately used by an informed and empowered public”
UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE (UHC), ALSO REFERRED TO AS KALUSUGAN PANGKALAHATAN (KPThe Aquino administration puts it as the availability and accessibility of health services and necessities for all Filipinos.It is a government mandate aiming to ensure that every Filipino shall receive affordable and quality health benefits.This involves providing adequate resources – health human resources, health facilities, and health financing.
UHC’S THREE THRUSTS1) Financial risk protection through expansion in enrollment and benefit delivery of the National Health Insurance Program (NHIP);2) 2) Improved access to quality hospitals and health care facilities; and3) 3) Attainment of health-related Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
FINANCIAL RISK PROTECTIONProtection from the financial impacts of health care is attained by making any Filipino eligible to enroll, to know their entitlements and responsibilities, to avail of health services, and to be reimbursed by PhilHealth with regard to health care expenditures.
MPROVED ACCESS TO QUALITY HOSPITALS AND HEALTH CARE FACILITIESImproved access to quality hospitals and health facilities shall be achieved in a number of creative approaches. First, the quality of government-owned and operated hospitals and health facilities is to be upgraded to accommodate larger capacity, to attend to all types of emergencies, and to handle non- communicable diseases.
The Health Facility Enhancement Program (HFEP) shall provide funds to improve facility preparedness for trauma and other emergencies. The aim of HFEP was to upgrade 20% of DOH- retained hospitals, 46% of provincial hospitals, 46% of district hospitals, and 51% of rural health units(RHUs) by end of 2011.
ATTAINMENT OF HEALTH-RELATED MDGSFurther efforts and additional resources are to be applied on public health programs to reduce maternal and child mortality, morbidity and mortality from Tuberculosis and Malaria, and incidence of HIV/AIDS. Localities shall be prepared for the emerging disease trends, as well as the prevention and control of non- communicable diseases.The organization of Community Health Teams (CHTs) in each priority population area is one way to achieve health-related MDGs. CHTs are groups of volunteers, who will assist families with their health needs, provide health information, and
ATTAINMENT OF HEALTH-RELATED MDGSRNheals nurses will be trained to become trainers and supervisors to coordinate with community-level workers and CHTs. By the end of 2011, it is targeted that there will be 20,000 CHTs and 10,000 RNheals.Another effort will be the provision of necessary services using the life cycle approach. These services include family planning, ante-natal care, delivery in health facilities, newborn care, and the Garantisadong Pambata package.Better coordination among government agencies, such as DOH, DepEd, DSWD, and DILG, would also be essential for the achievement of these MDGs.

FIELD HEALTH SERVICE INFORMATION SYSTEM (FHSIS)• It is a network of information• It is intended to address the short term needs of DOH and LGU staff withmanagerial or supervisory functions in facilities and program areas.• It monitors health service delivery nationwide.
OBJECTIVES OF FHSISTo provide summary data on health service delivery and selected program accomplishment indicators at the barangay, municipality/ city, and district, provincial, regional and national levels.To provide data which when combined with data from other sources, can be used for program monitoring and evaluation purposes.To provide a standardized, facility-level data base that can be accessed for more in-depth studies.To minimize the recording and reporting burden at the service delivery level in order to allow more time for patient care and promote activities.
IMPORTANCE OF FHSIS• Helps local government determine public health priorities.• Basis for monitoring and evaluating health program implementation.• Basis for planning, budgeting, logistics and decision making at alllevels.• Source of data to detect unusual occurrence of a disease.• Needed to monitor health status of the community.• Helps midwives in following up clients.• Documentation of RHM/PHN day to day activities.
COMPONENTS OF FHSIS1. Individual Treatment Record (ITR)2. Target Client List (TCL)3. Summary Table4. The Monthly Consolidation Table (MCT)
INDIVIDUAL TREATMENT RECORD (ITR)The fundamental building block or foundation of the Field Health Service Information System is the INDIVIDUAL TREATMENT RECORD.This is a document, form or piece of paper upon which is recorded the date, name, address of patient, presenting symptoms or complaint of the patient on consultation and the diagnosis (if available), treatment and date of treatment.
TARGET CLIENT LIST (TCL)The Target Client Lists constitute the second “building block” of the FHSIS and are intended to serve several purposesFirst is to plan and carry out patient care and service delivery. Such lists will be of considerable value to midwives/nurses in monitoring service delivery to clients in general and in particular to groups of patients identified as “targets” or “eligibles” for one or another program of the Department
TARGET CLIENT LIST (TCL)The second purpose of Target Client Lists is to facilitate the monitoring and supervision of service delivery activities.The third purpose is to report services delivered.The fourth purpose of the Target Client Lists is to provide a clinic-level data base which can be accessed for further studies
TARGET CLIENT LISTS TO BE MAINTAINED IN THE FHSIS1. Target Client List for Prenatal Care2. Target Client List for Post-Partum Care3. Target Client List of Under 1 Year Old Children4. Target Client List for Family Planning5. Target Client List for Sick Children6. NTP TB Register7. National Leprosy Control Program Form 2-Central Registration Form
SUMMARY TABLEThe Summary Tables is a form with 12-month columns retained at the facility (BHS) where the midwife records monthly all relevant data. The Summary Table is composed of:(1) Health Program Accomplishment this can serve as proof of accomplishments to show LGU officials whenever they visit the facility.(2) Morbidity Diseases the source of ten leading causes of morbidity for the municipality/city. This summary table will help the nurse and MHO to get the monthly trend of diseases.
THE MONTHLY CONSOLIDATION TABLE (MCT)ü The Consolidation Table is an essential form in the FHSIS where the nurse at the RHU records the reported data per indicator by each BHS or midwife.ü This is the source document of the nurse for the Quarterly Form.ü The Consolidation Table shall serve as the Output Table of the RHU as it already contains listing of BHS per indicator.
FHSIS REPORTINGThese are summary data that are transmitted or submitted on a monthly, quarterly and on annual basis to higher level. The source of data for this component is dependent on the records.
THE MONTHLY FORMProgram Report (M1)The Monthly Form contains selected indicators categorized as maternal care, child care, family planning and disease control.Morbidity Report (M2)The Monthly Morbidity Disease Report contains a list of all diseases by age and sex. The Midwife uses the form for the monthly consolidation report of Morbidity Diseases and is submitted to the PHN for quarterly consolidation.
THE QUARTERLY FORMProgram Report (Q1)The Quarterly Form is the municipality/city health report and contains the three-month total of indicators categorized as maternal care, family planning, child care, dental health and disease controlMorbidity Report (Q2)The PHN uses the form for the Quarterly Consolidation Report of Morbidity Diseases to consolidate the Monthly Morbidity Diseases taken from the Summary Table.
THE ANNUAL FORMS (A-BHS, A1, A2 & A3)ABHS Form is the report of midwife which contains data on demographic,environmental and natality.The report of nurse at the RHU/MHC are the Annual Form 1 which is the report on vital statistics: demographic, environmental, natality and mortality.Annual Form 2 is the report that lists all diseases and their occurrence in the municipality/city. The report is broken down by age and sex.Annual Form 3 is the report of all deaths occurred in the municipality/city. Thereport is also broken down by age and sex.

EPIDEMIOLOGYis the pattern of occurrences & distribution of diseases, defects & deaths 2 Population in DistributionPatterns Susceptible Immune (at risk to develop, acquire (those that did not or experience the disease) experience the disease, usually individuals develop resistance against the disease)Epidemic 80% (more than 50%) 20%Endemic 50% 50%Sporadic 20% 80%Pandemic ----- -----
EPIDEMIC§ Greater than 50% of populations are susceptible or less immune individual§ Greater % of the population is affected by the occurring diseaseExample: Health worker reports that Community Lanting has anepidemic of measles affecting children less than 7 years oldTotal susceptible population: 3000Children affected by measles: 17501750
ENDEMICThe disease occurs regularly, habitually, constantly affecting the population group2 Local Endemic Diseases: where causative agent is available on those places§ Schistosomiasis: Samar, Leyte, Mindoro, Davao§ Malaria: Palawan & Mindanao-reasons why it’s prevalent § Forested areas § Surrounded by bodies of water
SPORADIC§ The pattern of occurrence is on & off where: On=available causative agent Off=no available causative agent§ It’s intermittent (unpredictable) in occurrence§ Disease occurs only if there’s a susceptible host like in rabies
PANDEMICWorldwide, international, universal, global in occurrence like in AIDS, Hepatitis B, PTB, measles, mumps, diphtheria, pneumonia§ SARS is categorized by WHO as an OUTBREAK only because out of 191 nations, 33 countries are reported to have it.
HOME VISITü Is a PROFESSIONAL contact between PHN & the familyü The services provided is an extension of the Health Service Agency (Health Center)
OBJECTIVES OF HOME VISIT § Assessment § Nursing Care § Treatment § Health Education § Referral (if care fails)
PRIORITIES (IN THE CARE): TO PREVENT CROSS CONTAMINATION1. Newborn2. Post partum3. Pregnant mothers4. Morbid casesThe families need the assistance of the health center that’s why home visit was done to the familyThe person who makes the home visit is rendering services on behalf of the health center
PHASES OF HOME VISIT:1. Planningü Starts at the health centerü Makes a study on the status of the familyü Statement of the problemü Formation of objective2. Socialization –first activity is to establish rapport & to gain the trust of the family
PHASES OF HOME VISIT:3. Activityü Intervention/Professional Phaseü Opportunity to provide or extend health servicesü Standard Role of the Nurse: Independent, Dependent and Interdependentü To be effective, come in complete uniform (also bring a long umbrella with pointed end which serve as protection)4. Summarization - ability to put into record & report (orally) about the outcome of the activity
PUBLIC HEALTH BAG:Indispensable tool that should be organize to save time & effort and to prevent cross infection & contamination
GUIDING PRINCIPLES IN THE USE OF PUBLIC HEALTH BAG:§ Content -should be prepared by the one who will make home visit Note: BP Apparatus is kept separately from PHN bag§ Cleaning ü The inner part of the bag should be clean & sterile ü Should be done every after home visit ü Never endorse the bag
GUIDING PRINCIPLES IN THE USE OF PUBLICHEALTH BAG: § Contamination § The less one opens the bag, the lesser chance of contamination § In general, the bag is open 3x: ü Putting out materials for hand washing ü Putting out materials used for nursing care ü Returning all what have been used
GUIDING PRINCIPLES IN THE USE OF PUBLICHEALTH BAG:Care of Communicable Case(s)- should be disinfected with the use of 70% isopropyl alcohol or Lysol which should be done at the health center and not at home

POLICIES:1. Non coercive (give freedom of choice)2. Integration of Family Planning in all Curricular Program:§ LOI 47 DECS states that Family Planning is to be integrated in all school curricular programs, either baccalaureates or non- baccalaureates, enrolled separately as one unit3. Multi-Sectoral Approach: establish relationship with otheragencies which can either be: § Intrasectoral § Intersectoral-Local or International (WHO, Unicef, USAID, Japhiego)
METHODOLOGIES: Biological A. Basal Body Temperature (BBT) § Get the temperature early morning before waking up which should be monitored daily at the same time § There should be a sudden drop of temperature between 0.3-0.6°C followed by an increase of temperature by 0.3-0.6°C which means that the woman is fertile
B. Sympto-thermalC. Cervical Mucus Test Ø Billing’s Method by Dr. Billing Ø Spinnbarkheit (came from a German word Spinner which means to play with the cervical mucus with the finger) or Wet & Dry Method: § Wet Cervical Mucus (Fertile): abundant, stretchy & transparent § Dry Cervical Mucus (Safe & Not fertile): whitish, pasty & adhesiveD. Calendar (Rhythm)§ Deleted already since 1998 because it’s not recommended for irregular cycle of menstruation§ Menstrual cycle should be regular; obtain 4-6 months cycle
E. Lactation Amenorrhea Method (LAM): RA 7600-Breastfeeding & Rooming In Law§ DOH organized Maternal & Child Family Health Institute (MCFHI) with the following members: ü All government hospitals ü Private hospitals (volunteer)§ Normal involution (uterus goes back to normal) of the uterus: after 45 days or 5-6 weeks or 1 ½ months if not breastfeeding§ Frozen breast milk is to be put out of the freezer 2 hours before feeding ( Body of Ref: 2-3 days / Freezer: 3-4 months)§ Left over milk should be discarded & should not be re-preserved or re-frozen because it is already contaminated
METHODOLOGIES:TemporaryA. Chemical§ Oral Pills (Logentrol)-has low dose of estrogen & progesterone that inhibits ovulation§ Parenteral: Depot Medroxyprogesterone Acetate (DMPA)/Depo- provera- inhibits ovulation making women amenorrheic;1991, DMPA was found to be causing cancer of the cervix1994, DMPA is given IM 4x a year every 3 months (90 days interval)
§ Implants: Norplant-it inhibits ovulation effective for 5 years but seldom advocated for use because it is usually expensive; the client buys the device (consists of 5 capsules) & have it implanted at the health center by minor surgical incision in: ü upper inner arm because it is nearest to the brain ü external oblique ü thigh ü gluteal muscles
B. Mechanical:§ IUDü Up to 10 years protection§ Cervical cap & Diaphragmü Prevent the sperm to pass the cervixü Works better with spermicideü Wore 30 minutes before coitus and keep up to 6 hours after coitus§ Condomü Most effective way to prevent STD’s / STI’s

ENVIRONMENTAL SANITATIONØ refers to all factors available in the environment affecting the health of the individual or populationØ regulated by PD 856: Comprehensive Sanitation Code of the Philippines
ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH SERVICE (EHS) OF DOH IS RESPONSIBLE FOR§ Promotion of healthy environmental conditions & prevention of environmental related diseases through appropriate sanitation strategies§ Promotion & implementation of sanitation programs through the Department of Health Field Health Units§ Conceptualization of new programs/projects to contend with emerging environmentally related health problems
COMPONENTS:ü Water Supply Sanitation Programü Proper Excreta and Sewage Disposal Programü Insect and Rodent Controlü Food and Sanitation Programü Hospital Waste Management Program
1. WATER SUPPLY SANITATION PROGRAMü Potableü Free from any particles that might cause illness to an individual
Ways to make Water Potable:§ Boiling: minimum of 3 minutes to maximum of 10 minutes for drinking§ Sterilization: 30 minutes after the water starts to boil§ Filtration: makes use of filter paper or cotton cloth to separate solid particle from liquid if water comes from river
§ Coagulation/Flocculation: uses aluminum crystal (tawas) that collects or absorbs particles from liquid part & becomes slimy ü In 1 gallon of water, drop tawas (the size of magi cubes) & allow to stand for 6-8 hours ü Initially, water appears to be cloudy then after 6-8 hours of standing, the water becomes clear
Chlorination: uses 100% pure concentrated chlorine bought from botika or given free by health centersØ To prepare stock solution (SS): in 1 liter drinking water, add 1 tablespoon of concentrated chlorine which is potent for 3-4 monthsØ To prepare the chlorinated water: in 2 ½ gallons of drinking water (10,000 ml=10 liters), add 1 tablespoon from the prepared stock solution & let it stand for 30 minutes to react with water
§ Fluoridation: adding fluoride to prevent dental caries (primary significance) & whitens enamel of teeth ( 2nd significance)§ Aeration: exposing drinking water in air to strengthen taste within 24 hours which is usually used in uphill areas where there’s less or no pollution
3 TYPES OF APPROVED WATER SUPPLY AND FACILITIESLevel IPoint SourceA protected well or a developed spring with anoutlet but without a distribution system for ruralareas where houses are thinly scattered.
3 TYPES OF APPROVED WATER SUPPLY AND FACILITIESLevel IICommunal faucet system or stand postsA system composed of a source, a reservoir, a pipeddistribution network and communal faucets, located atnot more than 25 meters from the farthest house inrural areas where houses are clustered densely.
3 TYPES OF APPROVED WATER SUPPLY AND FACILITIESLevel IIIWaterworks system or individual houseconnectionsA system with a source, a reservoir, a pipeddistributor network and household taps that issuited for densely populated urban areas.
3 TYPES OF APPROVED TOILET FACILITIESLevel 1Non-water carriage toilet facility:- Pit latrines- Reed Odorless Earth Closet- Bored-hole- Compost Toilets requiring small amount of water to wash waste intoreceiving space- Pour flush- Aqua privies
Pit latrinesØ most commonly observed in rural areaØ has three components: the pit, a squatting plate and the super-structureØ types of pit include“Antipolo type”, a pit type of toilet provided with concrete floor and an elevated seat with a coverVentilated Improved Pit or VIP, pit with a vent pipeReed Odourless Earth Closet or ROEC, a pit completely displaced from the superstructure and connected to the squatting plate by a curved chute.
Bored Hole Latrineü consists of relatively deep holes bored into the earth by mechanical or manual earth-boring equipmentü holes are about 10-18 inches in diameter and usually 15-35 feet deep. The hole is provided to facilitate squatting. Two types of bored-hole latrines are:Wet Type - when the hole penetrates ground water table or other strata.Dry Type - when he hole does not reach ground water table; fills up at a faster rate then than the wet type.
3 TYPES OF APPROVED TOILET FACILITIESLevel 2On site toilet facilities of the water carriage type withwater sealed andflushed type with septic vault/tank disposal facilities.
3 TYPES OF APPROVED TOILET FACILITIESLevel 3Water carriage types of toilet facilitiesconnected to septic tanks an/or to seweragesystem to treatment plant.
THINGS TO CONSIDER IN CONSTRUCTING A TOILETFACILITY:ü At least 25 meters away from water sources at a lower elevationü It should be within your financial capabilityü It should be approved by the local health authorities
CARE AND MAINTENANCE OF YOUR TOILET FACILITY:ü Water must be provided at all times.ü Use toilet paperü Use lysol once a month for odor removalü Clean the bowl by muriatic acid to remove the stains.ü Avoid depositing solid objects on the bowl to prevent cloggingü Always check your toilet if it’s cleanü Use plunger when clogging occurs. Don’t use sticks or rods to avoid the breakage of the trap or the bowl.
3. PROPER SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENTrefers to satisfactory methods of storage, collection and final disposal of solid wastes
SOURCES OF SOLID WASTEHousehold Waste - these are wastes generated in or discharged from household including shops but excluding commercial activities Commercial Waste - restaurants, stationery shops, grocery shops or any commercial activity are the main sources of commercial waste. Market Waste - only refers to waste generated in or discharged from markets both for whole sale and retailing
SOURCES OF SOLID WASTEInstitutional Waste - these are wastes generated in government, state enterprise and private firm office. Street Sweeping Waste - these are wastes generated by the street sweeping cleansing service. River Waste - includes all the wastes generated by the river and creek cleansing Medical Waste - these are wastes generated in hospitals.
COMPONENTS OF SOLID WASTEGarbage refers to left over vegetable, animal and fish material from kitchen and food establishments. These materials have the tendency to decay giving off foul odors and sometimes serve as food for flies and rats. Rubbish refers to waste materials such as bottles, broken glass, tin can, waste papers, discarded textile materials, porcelain wares, pieces of metal and other wrapping materials.
COMPONENTS OF SOLID WASTE Ashes are left over from burning of wood and coal. Ashes may become a nuisance because of the dust associated with them. Stable manure is animal manure collected from stables. Dead animals like dead dogs, cats, rats, pigs, and chickens that are killed by cars and trucks on streets and public highways. They include small and large animals that died from disease.
COMPONENTS OF SOLID WASTEStreet sweeping includes dust, manure, leaves, cigarette buts, waste papers and other materials that are swept from streets. Night soil is human waste normally wrapped and thrown into sidewalks and streets. This also includes human waste from pail system of toilets. Yard cuttings includes leaves, branches, grass and other
SANITARY WAYS OF TREATING GARBAGE:Segregation-separating biodegradable from non biodegradableCollection-adherence to the proper collection time→ the City of Manila coordinates with Leonel Waste Management (a private firm which collects garbage) where the truck driver coordinates with the Barangay Chairman on the time they will collect garbage so don’t bring out garbage before the collection time
WAYS OF DISPOSAL Household○ Burial ► Deposited in 1m x 1m deep pits covered with soil, located 25 m. away from water supply ○ Open burningo Animal feedingo Compostingo Grinding and disposal sewer
WAYS OF DISPOSAL Community○ Sanitary landfill or controlled tipping► Excavation of soil deposition of refuse and compactingwith a solid cover of 2 feet ○ IncinerationEcological Solid Waste Management: RA 9003- the use ofincinerator approved in 2000 but was implemented in 2003because of lack of funding to purchase
POLICIES:ü Food establishment are subject to inspection (approved of all food sources containers and transport vehicles)ü Comply with sanitary permit requirementü Comply with updated health certificates for food handlers, helpers, cooksü All ambulant vendors must submit a health certificate to determine present of intestinal parasite and bacterial infection
3 POINTS OF CONTAMINATIONü Place of production processing and source of supplyü Transportation and storageü Retail and distribution points
5. HOSPITAL WASTE MANAGEMENTRA 4226-Hospital Licensure Act monitors the hospital license & proper management of wastes as well as renewal of license to operate
GOAL:To prevent the risk of contraction contracting nosocomial infection from type disposal of infectious, pathological and other wastes from hospital
COLOR CODING OF BIN TO KEEP WASTE:Green: wet wasteBlack : dry wasteYellow: infectious/pathological waste like blood, sputum, urine, feces & gauzeOrange: toxic/hazardous waste
