Final Paper Outline



In Week Five you will complete a Final Paper that will focus on evaluating
research studies and reports to analyze a specific topic within a Health and
Human Services research area.  Review the instructions for your Final
Paper in Week Five of the course or in the “Components of Course Evaluation”
section of this guide.  



This week you will submit a description of your topic area and an outline for
your Final Paper.  To begin, select a topic area from the Health and Human
Services field.  Your topic should correspond to actual research studies
that have been performed.  You may find it easier to locate peer-reviewed
sources as you select your topic area, to ensure that there is research
available in the area you choose.  Examples of possible topic areas
include:

  • Program effectiveness of community-based mental health
      treatment facilities.
  • Perceptions of ethical competence among human service
      professionals working in long- term care.
  • Treatment intervention outcomes for veterans with
      post-traumatic stress disorder.
  • Characteristics of successful job placement programs
      for special needs adults.
  • Trends in health care legislation and impacts on health
      and human service delivery.



In the first part of your assignment this week, describe your selected topic
area, including the problem or background issues that you would like to address
in your Final Paper.  To do this, you will need to visit the Ashford
University Library and locate at least eight peer-reviewed sources that pertain
to your selected topic area.  Your sources must present actual research
studies that correspond to the problem or background of your selected topic
area   



Summarize the components, attributes, and/or various segments of the topic area
you have selected.  

For example:

  • What is the research problem or issue?
  • Who or what is affected by this problem or issue?
  • What are some specific examples of research studies,
      evaluations, reports, literature reviews, etc. that address it?
  • What are the findings of these sources, and what are
      their implications on the health and human services field?



Then, create a detailed outline of your Final Paper.  Your outline should
include at least headings and sub-headings, with at least a one- to
two-sentence description for each.  Indicate within each section which of
your sources will apply to that section.  



The Final Paper Outline should be two to three pages total (excluding title and
reference pages) in APA format.  One page will be the topic area description
and summary and one to two pages will be the outline.  Utilize a minimum
of eight peer-reviewed sources that were published within the last 10 years and
that are cited according to APA format as outlined in the Ashford Writing
Center.  For assistance with formatting outlines, visit the Ashford
Writing Center and the Ashford University Library.

Your final assignment for this course is a Final Paper that will focus on
evaluating research studies and reports to analyze a specific topic within a
Health and Human Services research area.  You will select a topic area in Week
Three of this course that will be used for the Final Paper.  Examples of
possible topic areas include:

  • Program effectiveness of community-based mental health
      treatment facilities.
  • Perceptions of ethical competence among human service
      professionals working in long- term care.
  • Treatment intervention outcomes for veterans with
      post-traumatic stress disorder.
  • Characteristics of successful job placement programs
      for special needs adults.
  • Trends in health care legislation and impacts on health
      and human service delivery.



For your Final Paper, you will elaborate on each section of your Final Paper
Outline from Week Three.  You must utilize at least eight peer-reviewed
sources that were published within the last 10 years; these will be the same
sources that you identified in your Week Three assignment.  Your sources
must present actual research studies that correspond to the problem or
background of your selected topic area.  Your Final Paper must address the
following:

  • Describe your selected topic area.  Your
      description of the problem or background of your topic area should include
      more detail than the overview you provided in Week Three.

       
  • Summarize the components, attributes, and/or various
      segments of the topic area you have selected.  For example:

    •  
    • What is the research problem or issue?
    •  
    • Who or what is affected by this problem or issue?
    •  
    • What are some specific examples of research studies,
        evaluations, reports, literature reviews, etc. that address it?
    •  
    • What are the findings of these sources, and what are
        their implications on the health and human services field?
  • Evaluate the research reports and/or theories from the

      This analysis should add to the exploration of the problem or background
      of your selected topic area.
