WEEK 5 NR503 CHAMBERLAIN UNIVERSITY
Purpose
Infectious disease occurs worldwide and must be addressed just as chronic disease is
approached. This assignment will present the learner an opportunity to explore a
communicable disease, to apply the epidemiological triad, and to discern
the demographic and at-risk background data for a specific infectious disease agent.
Activity Learning Outcomes
Through this assessment, the student will meet the following Course Outcomes.
1. Identify appropriate outcome measures and study designs applicable to
epidemiological sub-fields such as infectious disease, chronic disease, environmental
exposures, reproductive health, and genetics. (CO3)
2. Identify important sources of epidemiological data. (CO6)
Total Points Possible: 125
Requirement
1. Apply the concepts of population health and epidemiology to one of the following
infectious diseases:  (Choose one from the following list for your paper.)
o Community Acquired Pneumonia
o Infectious Diarrhea
o Hepatitis B
o Tick-borne Encephalitis
o Salmonella
2. Synthesize Course content from Weeks 1-5 according to the following sections:
o Introduction: Analysis of the communicable disease (causes, symptoms, mode of
transmission, complications, treatment) to include demographic break down that
includes age, gender, race, or other at-risk indicators (data per demographics should
include mortality, morbidity, incidence, and prevalence).
o Determinants of Health: Define, identify and synthesize the determinants of health
as related to the development of the infection. Utilize HP2020.
o Epidemiological Triad: Identify and describe all elements of the epidemiological
triad: Host factors, agent factors (presence or absence), and environmental factors.
Utilize the demographic break down to further describe the triad.
o Role of the NP: Succinctly define the role of the nurse practitioner according to a
national nurse practitioner organization (National Board of Nursing or AANP, for
example) and synthesize the role to the management of infectious
diseases (surveillance, primary/secondary/tertiary interventions, reporting, data
collecting, data analysis, and follow-up). This includes the integration of a model of
practice which supports the implementation of an evidence-based practice.  Refer to
your course textbook for models of practice examples.

Preparing the paper
Submission Requirements
1. Application: Use Microsoft Word™ to create the written assessment.
2. Length: The paper (excluding the title page and reference page) should be limited to a
maximum of four (4) pages. Papers not adhering to the page length may be returned
to you for editing to meet the length guidelines.
3. A minimum of three (3) scholarly research/literature references must be used. CDC or
other web sources may be utilized but are not counted towards the three minimum
references required. Your course text may be used as an additional resource but is
not included in the three minimum scholarly references.
4. APA format current edition.
5. Include scholarly in-text references and a reference list.
6. Adhere to the Chamberlain College of Nursing academic policy on integrity as it
pertains to the submission of student created original work for assignments.
7. Do not write in the first person (such as “me” “I”)
Best Practices in Preparing the Project
The following are best practices in preparing this project:
1. Review directions and rubric thoroughly.
2. Follow submission requirements.
3. Make sure all elements on the grading rubric are included. Organize the paper using
the rubric sections and appropriate headings to match the sections.
4. Rules of grammar, spelling, word usage, and punctuation are followed and consistent
with formal, scientific writing.
5. Title page, running head, body of paper, and reference page must follow APA
guidelines as found in the current edition of the manual. This includes the use of
headings for each section of the paper except for the introduction where no heading is
used.
6. Ideas and information that come from scholarly literature must be cited and referenced
correctly.
7. A minimum of three (3) scholarly literature references must be used. **See above
section on “Preparing the Paper”.
8. Abide by Chamberlain College of Nursing academic integrity policy.
