Requirements for Epidemiology Papers
Describe the communicable disease you’ve chosen, including its causes, symptoms, mode of transmission, complications, treatment, and target demographic (mortality, morbidity, incidence, and prevalence). Is this a disease that needs to be reported? If so, include information such as reporting times, who to report to, and so on.
Describe the social determinants of health and how they play a role in the progression of this disease.
Examine the epidemiologic triangle in relation to the communicable disease you’ve chosen. Host factors, agent factors (presence or absence), and environmental factors are all factors to consider. Is there anything special that the community, schools, or the general public should be aware of?
Explain the role of the community health nurse (case finding, reporting, data collection, data analysis, and follow-up) as well as why demographic data is important for community health.
Identify at least one national agency or organization that deals with the communicable disease you’ve chosen, and explain how they help to solve or lessen the disease’s impact.
Discuss the disease’s global implications. What is the response to this in other countries or cultures? Is this a disease that is only found in a specific area? Give a specific example.
There must be a minimum of three peer-reviewed or professional references.
