Community Readiness Assessment Training: Is your community ready to take action?
Presented by: Regina Flynn & Scott Foster, NH Division of Public Health Services in partnership with HEAL NH
The Community Readiness Model was developed at the Tri-Ethnic Center to assess how ready a community is to address an issue. The basic premise is that matching an intervention to a community’s level of readiness is absolutely essential for success. Efforts that are too ambitious are likely to fail because community members will not be ready or able to respond. To maximize chances for success, the Community Readiness Model offers tools to measure readiness and to develop stage-appropriate strategies.
This session will provide participants with the skills and understanding to:
- Assess communities readiness about an issue
- Build relationships
- Gain a better understanding of the issue in the community
- Define and tailor strategies appropriate for the “readiness” of a community
