TIPS THAT MY PROFESSOR WROTE TO HELP WITH ASSIGNMENT:
Unit 4 assignment tips.
HI Class, Please be patient and read my tips on this assignment. It will help you! For this Assignment you will pick a disease process and create a health screening initiative. Pick a recommended screening from AHRQ section 2; an A B or C level. An initiative is a project, and event- so something in the community is ideal. Workplace for employees is fine too. Please include the following suggested level I headings so content is clear and easily identified. These should be centered and bolded in the paper. The paper is short so be succinct.
Paper Title goes here again on page 2 in APA.
The introduction can speak to the condition itself. For example: Diabetes is a disease of the endocrine system, involving the pancreas. Type II diabetes mellitus is largely a disease stemming from lifestyle choices in adults. Education and screening helps to reduce incidence of this condition (Citation). And then maybe another sentence or so.
Do not talk about yourself here. (In fact. Never say, we, I, you in papers). Speak to the issue of the condition. Statistics in your city, state, or nationally. How the condition or disease is a problem or needs screening to have better outcome. How many people die or have it. Not every statistic under the sun is needed here. Just a couple key ones that are important to you enough to do the screening. Should also include why it is bad for people to have this condition and why screening is necessary.
Geographic- race- sex- a particular group even such as senior citizens of Monroe County or the local Church are the population.. Options are yours. Population should be clear. Provide support for why they need the screening, why they are at risk, or underserved, etc. Does not have to be exhaustive.
Clearly show how screening reduces associated mortality, or complications or the condition itself. Does early diagnosis help? Here is where you address what you are checking and how; BMI, B/P, lipids, etc, dependant on what you are screening. Does education and awareness with screening make a difference? Detailed explanation is provided on how each outcome is affected by their screening process selection. Rationale for their explanation is provided.
Examples of location include, a local fair, the mall, a community hall, hospital classroom, free clinic, church fellowship hall, county senior center etc. Write about privacy and set up or stations if needed. Could include registration in this section. Also comment how the facility is easily accessible. Include thought that went in to this; i.e. HIV testing van at the gay rally’s vs people having to go the health dept. or a clinic for testing, proved effective to increase number of individuals tested, referred and educated on prevention. In a community health screening providers go to the people, but certainly a local family clinic open on Sat for a free cervical screening is fine.
A rough estimate of your cost. Should have a few sentences with a list of items and costs. You can look up some costs of special equipment and include. Can include comments such as volunteer use, or donated copying from local copy center. Can insert a table here or a section of a spread sheet if you want, or simply a list of costs. If the cost is 0 for an item include that. Must have a total.
Restate key points in the paper. That the condition is a problem; the population is at risk, the outcome of the screening will help and how, the location is appropriate for the population and the cost is doable. Work this out in nice clear sentences.
