Vulnerable Population Summary and Proposed

The first of your two written assignments for the course
will provide a beginning framework that you will utilize in the development of
your Final Project: a proposal for a community-based program in your area. For
this first written assignment, you will select one of the vulnerable groups
identified in the text that will serve as your target population of interest
throughout the duration of your next written assignment and Final Project.

Choose one among the following groups from Chapter 1:

    • Vulnerable mothers and children
    • Abused individuals
    • Chronically ill and disabled people
    • People diagnosed with HIV/AIDS
    • People diagnosed with mental conditions
    • Suicide- and homicide-liable people
    • People affected by alcohol and substance abuse
    • Indigent and homeless people
    • Immigrants and refugees
    • Groups for special consideration (you may propose a different vulnerable
      population at the consent of the instructor)

  1. Describe the impact that at least two of the factors below have on the
    vulnerability of your chosen group:

    3. Culture/Ethnicity
    4. Income
  2. Analyze the intersection of social, political, and economic factors
    affecting vulnerability (must address all three factors).
  3. Draft the design of a model program. Provide a two- to- three paragraph
    statement that introduces your proposed community program. This section is
    tentative and might change as you conduct more research. At a minimum, however,
    items to address should include:
    1. Identify the health needs of the group and select a proposed continuum of
      care level focus (preventive, treatment, or long-term care) based on the group’s
      stated risk factors and needs.
    2. Discuss your justification for the proposed level with supportive
    3. A description of one- to- two proposed services your program will include.
