NR 704 Week 4 Evidenced Based Promotion Project Part 1
Evidenced-Based Promotion Project, Part 1:
Guidelines and Rubric
The purpose of this project is to identify a high-risk population derived from the students’ clinical practice at the microsystem level. After identification of the population, the student (based on the literature) will ascertain the adverse health outcomes associated with this population, using the appropriate epidemiological principles and terminology. This information will serve as the basis for the development of interventions in the second part of the project.
This assignment provides documentation of student ability to meet the following course outcomes:
- Distinguish the roles and relationships between epidemiology and biostatistics in the prevention of disease and the improvement of health. (PO 1)
- Assimilate principles of epidemiology with scientific data necessary for epidemiologic intervention and draw appropriate inferences from epidemiologic data. (PO 1)
- Synthesize ethical and legal principles regarding the collection, maintenance, utilization, and dissemination of epidemiologic data. (PO 1)
- Utilize appropriate public health terminology and definitions of epidemiology necessary for interprofessional collaboration in advanced practice. (PO 8)
- Analyze the role of the advanced practice nurse in overcoming access barriers in providing culturally relevant and high-quality healthcare for vulnerable and high-risk populations. (PO 1)
- Differentiate biopsychosociopolitical and economic/environmental conditions impacting epidemiologic perspectives that inform scientific, ethical, economic, and political discussion of public health issues. (PO 1)
- Articulate the driving and restraining forces of public health screening programs. (PO 1)
- Examine selected strategies for increasing interprofessional collaboration in interventional health education programs across lay public, professional, and/or practice settings. (PO 8)
- Formulate an interventional public health program in response to an identified epidemiologic problem. (PO 1)
- Integrate interprofessional collaboration in the design, implementation, and outcomes evaluation elements of a selected interventional public health program for improving health. (PO 8)
The assignment is worth a total of 200 points.
Submit your completed assignment under the Dropbox tab by Sunday 11:59 p.m. MT of Week 4 as directed.
- Part 1 of the project is worth 200 points and will be graded on quality of self-assessment, use of citations, use of standard English grammar, sentence structure, and overall organization based on the required components as summarized in the directions and grading criteria and rubric.
- Create your assignment using Microsoft Word (a part of Microsoft Office), which is the required format for all Chamberlain College of Nursing documents. You can tell that the document is saved as an MS Word document because the file name will end in .docx.
- Follow the directions and grading criteria closely. Any questions may be posted in the weekly Q & A Forum.
- The length of the paper is to be no more than 8 pages, excluding the title page and reference pages.
- APA format is required with both a title page and a reference page. Use the required components of the review as Level 1 headings (upper and lower case, centered, boldface):
Note: Introduction—Write an introduction but do not use “Introduction” as a heading in accordance with the rules put forth in the Publication manual of the American Psychological Association (2010, p. 63).
- Identification of high-risk population
- Adverse health outcomes
- Utilization of epidemiological principles and terminology
