From the Ground up: Information Needs of Nurses in a Rural Public Health Department in Oregon (Report)

INTRODUCTION Public health has a wide variety of functions, services, and other roles, most of which are carried out by local public health agencies (including local health departments, jurisdictions, and districts) [1]. The Institute of Medicine (IOM) has outlined the three core functions of public health: assessment, such as investigating community health problems or hazards (e.g., infectious disease outbreaks); policy development, such as educating the public or developing policies that support community health (e.g., smoke-free laws); and assurance, such as enforcing regulations or providing personal health care services to underserved populations (e.g., providing family planning services or immunizations) [1]. In carrying out public health functions, local public health agencies are the foundation of the public health system in the United States, and public health nurses are the largest professional group in the local public health workforce [2].
