Epidemiology Paper Requirements

Address the following:

  1. Describe the communicable      disease (causes, symptoms, mode of transmission, complications, treatment)      and the demographic of interest (mortality, morbidity, incidence, and      prevalence). Is this a reportable disease? If so, provide details about      reporting time, whom to report to, etc.
  2. Describe the determinants of      health and explain how those factors contribute to the development of this      disease.
  3. Discuss the epidemiologic      triangle as it relates to the communicable disease you have selected.      Include the host factors, agent factors (presence or absence), and      environmental factors. Are there any special considerations or      notifications for the community, schools, or general population?
  4. Explain the role of the      community health nurse (case finding, reporting, data collecting, data      analysis, and follow-up).
  5. Identify at least one national      agency or organization that addresses the communicable disease chosen and      describe how the organization(s) contributes to resolving or reducing the      impact of disease.
  6. Discuss a global implication of      the disease. How is this addressed in other countries or cultures? Is this      disease endemic to a particular area? Provide an example.
