I believe the evidence tips ™ formatting makes the full ch apters for each intervention on the wheel a great deal more fi readable fl and easier for everyone to grasp. *** Overall, this is a very straightforward way for students and public health nursing pro -fessionals alike to refer to and know exactly what an intervention encompasses , as well as ideas for implementing the intervention, and how to stay in the public health nursing swim lane when working with other health care entities in the health care system and in communities. *** I was very impressed with the comprehensiveness of the intervention definitions, a p- plications, and evidence tips. *** I appreciated using stories and application questions as appropriate triggers for dis -cussion in my teaching practice.

INTRODUCTION 8 | PUBLIC HEALTH INT ERVENTIONS Introduction Public health interventions : Applications for public health nursing practice , 2nd edition Background Under the lead ership of public health nurses , the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) developed a manual, Public health interventions: Applications for public health nursing practice , to guide public health nursing practice. MDH distributed this manual, commonly known as the Public Hea lth Intervention Wheel, to public health departments and public health nurses in 2001. Informed by literature and expert practice, the Public Health Nursing Intervention Wheel framework provides a com -mon language that names the work of public health nurse s. Two articles published in 2004 provide details about the development and dissemi -nation of the manual: Keller, L. O., Strohschein, S., Lia -Hoagberg, B., & Schaffer, M. A. (2004). Population -based public health interventions: Practice -based and evidenc e-supported (Part I). Public Health Nursing, 21 (5), 453 -468. Keller, L. O., Strohschein, S., Schaffer, M. A., & Lia -Hoagberg, B., (2004). Population -based public health interventions: Innovations in practice, teaching, and management (Part II). Public Heal th Nursing, 21 (5), 469 -487. Public health nurses in Minnesota, across the United States, and in other countries, including Australia, Ireland, and Norway, embrace and use the Public Healt h Inter -vention Wheel (Anderson et al., 2018; Baisch, 2012; Bigbee, 2 012; Depke, 2011; Leahy -Warren, 2018; McDonald et al., 2015; Reilly, Collier, & Edelstein, 2011; Schaffer, Anderson, & Rising, 2016; Schaffer, Kalfoss, & Glavin, 2017). How has public health nursing practice changed? Since the 2001 dissemination of the Public Health Intervention Wheel, changes in the socioeconomic and political landscape triggered changes in public health nursing practice. Health care reform policy began to address social determinants of health, prevention, and population health in commu nity settings (Swider, Berkowitz, Valentine -Maher, Zenk, & Bekemeier, 2017; Bekemeier, Zahner, Kulbok, Merrill, & Kub, 2016 ) driving public health practice to respond in like manner. In response to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and bioterrorism incidents, the U.S. federal government provided substantial funding to state and local governments for emer -gency preparedness activities (Katz, Attal -Juncqua, & Fischer, 2017). This funding led to including emergency preparedness activities and opportunit ies in public health nursing practice.

INTRODUCTION PUBLIC HEALTH INTER VENTIONS | 9 At the same time, challenges to the public health infrastructure affected the availa -bility of resources and support for public health nursing practice. These challenges include insufficient funding , resulting in bud get cuts and loss of prevention and health promotion services; a declining public health workforce, including public health nurses (PHNs) ; and workforce issues, such as non -competitive salaries, retirements, technology changes, lack of diversity, and lack of formal public health training (Bekemeier et al. , 2016). In response to these events and challenges, public health nurses require increased skills in system – and community -level interventions. Strengthening the public health system and improving population health depends upon expertise in community en -gagement and partnership development (National Institutes of Health, 2011; Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, 2017). Decreasing resources for public health work de -mand that public health nurses work efficiently and effectively. Using best evidence to support interventions when collaborating with systems and communities improves po pulation health and reduces health care dollars spent on acute and crisis health care. This manual updates the best evidence for public health nursing interventions and provides PHNs with the knowledge and tools to design and implement effective interventi ons in their practice. How has the Public Health Intervention Wheel changed? All of the interventions and the five Intervention Wheel wedges remain the same. The authors simplified the manual content, and updated and aligned intervention definitions with n ew evidence found in the literature. Each intervention includes the following sections: Definition Practice -level examples (individual/family, community, or systems) Relationships to other interventions Basic steps for the intervention with application e xample Key points from evidence (summarizes relevant evidence with evidence levels) Wheel notes (concerns, thoughts, challenges relevant to the intervention) Reference list A few things to keep in mind when using the manual : Practice -level examples related to each intervention facilitate di stinguishing be -tween practice levels . Real examples from the literature and/or public health nursing experience form the basis of application examples related to the intervention basic steps . Key points from evidence inc lude research and non -research (evidence that re -flects expert practice in the public health field that has not come through a rig -orous research process) evidence . A story with application questions at the end of each intervention wedge en -courages consid eration of the intervention and facilitates application of the in -tervention™s basic steps .

INTRODUCTION 10 | PUBLIC HEALTH INT ERVENTIONS Method The authors searched CINAHL (Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Litera -ture) as the primary database for evidence updates on public health interventions from 2000 to 2018. The name of the intervention combined with other terms, such as public health, public health nursing, intervention, community, and nursing nar rowed the search. For some interventions, alternative terms yielded additional arti cles, such as the use of health education for health teaching. Journals yielding a high number of ar -ticles addressing public health interventions included Public Health Nursing, the Journa l of Community Health Nursing, the Journal of School Nursing, the American Journal of Public Health, and the Journal of Public Health Management and Practice. Searching government health -related websites and textbooks provided other sources of evidence. Go vernment websites included the Centers for Disease Control and Pre -vention (CDC), the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), the World He alth Organization (WHO), the U. S. Departmen t of Health and Human Services , and state health departments. Classic textbooks on some of the interven -tions provided evidence for each intervention ™s basic steps . The authors used the Johns Hopkins Nursing Evidence -Based Practice Model (Dang & Dearholt, 2018) to categorize evidence levels ( for further explanation of evidence -based practice , see Overview of evidence -based practice and related topics , on p. 16). Although all five levels of evidence support basic steps and key evidence points for interventions, lower levels of evidence predominate. Non -experimental studies pro -vide the primary basis for research evidence for interventions. Public health nursing interventions Public health nurses work in or out of schools, homes, clinics, jails, shelters, mobile vans, and dog sleds. They work with communiti es, the individuals and families that compose communities, and the systems that affect the health of those communities. Regardless of where or with whom they work, all PHNs use a core set of interventions to accomplish their goals. Interventions are action s that public health nurses take on behalf of individu -als/families, communities, and systems, to improve or protect health status ( Minne -sota Department of Health , 2001, p. 1). This framework, known as the Intervention Wheel , defines the scope of public health nursing practice by type of intervention and level of practice (individual/family, com -munity, or systems), rather than by the site of service such as home, school, occupa -tional health, clinic, and others. The Intervention Wheel describes the scope of prac -tice by what is similar across settings and describes the practice of public health nurs -ing at the individual/family, community, or systems level. The Intervention Wheel an -swers the question, fiWhat do public health nurses do?fl and delineates pub lic health nursing as a specialty practice of nursing. These interventions are not exclusive to public health nursing , as they are also used by other public health disciplines, except for delegated functions.
