2009 JSNA Report (Version 2 for the period of 2009)
The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) is designed to help all agencies take account of the broader social, cultural, economic, political and physical environments that shape people’s experience of health and wellbeing. It supports persistent, systematic and scaled interventions, based on evidence and focused on outcomes. It does this by drawing on data from a variety of sources to foster a broader understanding of the impact that local partners can have on the social determinants of health.
Information sources for the JSNA include those held by partners on social care, county demographics, education, and NHS providers. It also draws upon national datasets. The PCT, in partnership with Oxfordshire County Council, local authorities, police and fire service, is working with Oxfordshire Data Observatory to provide a countywide Local Implementation System. Work is currently under way to provide components of the JSNA through the data observatory web portal.
