Understanding the structure and style of a family is critical for patient and family care. A family interview and needs assessment gather information to identify strengths as well as potential health challenges. This information eventually aids in the development of family-centered solutions for support and guidance.

This family health assessment is a two-part assignment. The information you gather in this initial assignment will be utilized for the second assignment in Topic 3.

Create an interview questionnaire to be utilized in a family-focused functional assessment. The questionnaire must include three open-ended, family-focused questions to measure functional health patterns for each of the following:

Values/Health Perception








Role Relationship



Choose a family different than your own and obtain permission to do an interview with them. Conduct a family-focused functional assessment using the interview questions compiled in your interview questionnaire. As you do the interview, take notes on the responses.

Upon completion of the interview, write a 750-1,000-word paper. Analyze your assessment findings. Submit your questionnaire as an appendix with your assignment.

Include the following in your paper:

Describe the family structure. Include individuals and any relevant attributes defining the family composition, race/ethnicity, social class, spirituality, and environment.
Summarize the overall health behaviors of the family. Describe the current health of the family.

Based on your findings, describe at least two of the functional health pattern strengths noted in the findings. Discuss three areas in which health problems or barriers to health were identified.

Describe how family systems theory can be applied to solicit changes in family members that, in turn, initiate positive changes to the overall family functions over time.

Cite at least three peer-reviewed or scholarly sources to complete this assignment. Sources should be published within the last 5 years and appropriate for the assignment criteria.
