This thoroughly revised edition of the best-selling book Conducting Needs Assessment offers a brief, how-to guide that demystifies the process of planning a community intervention by helping both students and practitioners understand how to plan and conduct a needs assessment. Coverage includes planning the needs assessment, including the variety of methods used, survey methods and sample sizes, data collection and analysis, and reporting the findings.
To aid students' understanding, Soriano engages the students in the process of planning a community intervention by using clear, real-world examples and basic terms that have been updated to reflect current issues and HIPPA regulations.
“The book is user-friendly in that it is logically organized, provides examples and exercises, and presents a clear picture of the needs assessment process. The provision of real-life examples is particularly important and helpful to the reader, in that they make the content come to life.”
