Title of Presentation: ‘A Framework for Population-based Needs Assessment in geographically remote communities.’

The States of Guernsey Public Health Services have conducted the first of a suite of local population based needs assessment using both quantitative and qualitative data to understand and quantify the health, care and support needs within the Bailiwick of Guernsey. This will then be mapped against existing services and the unmet need scoped. A simple and adaptable framework has been developed which can be applied not only to other areas of public health, but also across comparable jurisdictions.
