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. (The textbook describes each element of the epidemiologic     triangle). 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.
