Beginning in August 2016, Phase 2 of the North Douglas County (NDC) Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) built on work completed in the Phase 1 planning process, and engaged the communities of Drain, Elkton, and Yoncalla, Oregon in the development and administration of a regional health services survey. The purpose of the survey was to learn from families with children ages 0-8 in the NDC region in order to:
• Identify service needs across a range of health service types, e.g., dental care, immunizations, prenatal care, well-child care, primary care, and mental health;
• Identify barriers to access; • Prioritize the programs and resources families most need to be able to support their and their children’s health;
• Learn about preferred ways families would like to access these services; and
• Recommend strategies to address the prioritized issues, needs, and barriers that emerge from the survey findings.
