What is JSNA?
A JSNA stands for a Joint Strategic Needs Assessment.
A JSNA describes a process that identifies current and future health and wellbeing needs in light of existing services and informs future service planning taking into account evidence of effectiveness.
A JSNA identifies 'the big picture', in terms of the health and wellbeing needs and differences of a local population".
Producing a JSNA is a mandatory requirement designed to help organisations with service planning and the commissioning process.
