Domain 7: Promote strategies to improve access to health care services
Domain 7 focuses on the link between public health activities and health care services. The health care sector provides many preventive services, such as immunizations, cholesterol screening, screening for breast cancer, high blood pressure management, and prenatal care. Patient counseling on health promotion, disease prevention, and chronic disease management is an important link between health care and public health. Linkages between health care and public health ensure continuity of care and management for the population.
An important role of public health is the assessment of (1) the capacity of the health care system to meet the health care needs of the population, and (2) community members' access to health care services. Public health also works to increase access to needed health care services.
