A community is a group of people who live within the same geographic location and share the same type of lifestyle, values and norms.

Community health is not limited to improving outcomes of an individual suffering from a particular disease or illness, but concentrates on the improvement of the community as a whole.

The “windshield survey” is one method that the nurse can use to collect data about a particular community, however, understanding the meaning of community, community health, community as a client, and partnership, as they relay to nursing in the public setting, is important to successful data assessment. Community “Community is a locality – based entity, composed of systems of formal organizations reflecting society’s institutions, informal groups, and aggregates”.

Health Care Communication Definition As Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion in the United States describes (2013), “Health communication is the study and use of communication strategies to inform and influence individual and community decisions that affect health. It links the fields of communication and health and is increasingly recognized as a necessary element of efforts to improve personal and public health.” During the health care communication the information shared relates to individual and community health issues, and it should serve the purpose of informing, educating, supporting, and influencing behavior eventually to improve health results. Health care communication uses many channels: TV shows and advertising, health related magazines, journals, websites, but probably the most influential on a person’s health is a person to person communication, which happens between health care providers and clients.
