Geopolitical and Phenomenological Nature Discussion
Communities can be described according to where they are located or according to the characteristics or interests of the community members. Community assessment and intervention are determined by the geopolitical and phenomenological designation of a community. Geopolitical communities exist in places separated by political boundaries. Individuals in a geopolitical community know each other personally through work or places they live in (Persaud et al. 2018). Phenomenological communities are defined by a sense of belonging. The members share experiences that bring them closer. They are connected by interpersonal relations.
Community assessment and interaction can be influenced by the geopolitical or the phenomenological nature of the community. A nurse must consider the geopolitical designation of a community. Through this designation, a nurse can focus on the environmental system of the community including education and housing. Health interventions will be developed after a careful analysis of these systems. The phenomenological aspect of the population helps a nurse identify the beliefs of the community and the boundaries while designing interventions. Coordination of health services and interventions is guided by the culture, values, and goals of the community.
The nursing process can be utilized to identify health issues by assessing, diagnosing, planning, implementing, and evaluating activities that detect and prevent health problems. The nursing process uses scientific reasoning and problem-solving skills to create appropriate interventions for the community (Semachew, 2018). The process can be utilized by using knowledge to design interventions for the community. Nursing knowledge ensures quality physical, emotional and mental care for members of the community (Lotfi et al. 2019). Interventions created for the community thereby improve and protect the health status of the population.
