The assignments for Units 6–9 will be focused on a Population Health Care Delivery Project.
The four components of this Population Health Care Delivery Project include:
- community risk assessment
- intervention development
- implementation plan
- evaluation plan
In this unit you will complete the Community Risk Assessment which is the first step in development of a Population Health Care Delivery Project.
This Assignment is used as the evaluation tool for Course Outcome 2: Summarize, based on the evidence, specific population health risks.
You will write a 4 page MS Word document (excluding the title and reference pages) which contains:
- demographic and social determinants, including multicultural and diverse communities for your population health;
- community infrastructure variables;
- analysis of surveillance data collected for the risk assessment including
- sources of data (bibliographic databases, U.S. government sources of data and peer-reviewed evidence-based findings);
- data calculations; and
- criteria for assessing the quality and utility of the epidemiologic data.
- outcomes from the risk assessment related to the health of your target population;
- you must select one screening tool from one peer reviewed journal article and discuss the reliability and validity of the tool; and
- a minimum of five peer reviewed evidence-based journal articles with findings relevant to your target population and selected epidemiological problem.
Your writing Assignment should: she said this was a learning activity to understand how to do the paper. because you will do just the first element, next week will post the second till the 4 are done.5 days ago
learning activity she got was this: Topic 1:
Over the next few units, you will complete a series of Learning Activities in which you’ll answer questions about a typical community issue, obesity. The case study, Obesity in America, describes the health-related state of obesity by person, place and time, and allows the epidemiologist to better understand the extent or “epidemic” of the condition. Consider the data you review in the case study to address the questions in these Learning Activities.
Practice What You Have Learned: It is strongly recommended that you complete this
interactive Learning Activity before you begin the assignment. In the Assignment, you will complete the Community Risk Assessment of your Population Health Care Delivery Project. You will write a 3–5 page paper which includes demographic and social determinants, community infrastructure variables, and analysis of surveillance data.
In the Learning Activity, you will consider the communities described in the obesity article and start to learn about the risks posed by the epidemic.
5 days agoObesity in America: The Epidemic Continues Taken from: Merrill, R.M. (2017). Introduction to Epidemiology. (p. 116). Burlington, MA: Jones & Bartlett Learning. There is increasing evidence that obesity rates in the United States are stabilizing,1 after epidemic levels in recent decades, resulting in 35.7% of adults and 16.9% of children being classified as obese.1 Obesity (BMI > 30) has reached unprecedented levels, as has the prevalence of extreme obesity (BMI of 40+), with 6.3% of the adult population being classified as extremely obese.2 Although overall obesity rates have increased for the entire U.S. population in recent decades, there are disparities between certain subgroups within the population. Person o Age Obesity is most prevalent in middle-aged adults (40 to 59 years old), with 39.5% considered obese. Approximately 30.3% of younger adults (20 to 39 years old) and 35.4% of adults over 60 are considered obese.1 o Gender Men and women experience obesity at similar rates with approximately 36% of men and 36% of women being classified as obese.2 However, there is a disparity among the sexes when it comes to extreme obesity rates, 4% of the male population and 8% of the female population have a BMI of 40 or more.2 o Race/Ethnicity The greatest disparity in obesity rates is among races and ethnicities. Asian Americans experience far lower obesity rates than all other racial and ethnic groups with only 10.8% being obese.1 In U.S. adults over 20 years of age, 34.3% of Whites, 49.5% of Blacks, and 39.1% of Hispanics are obese; and 5.7% of Whites, 13.1% of Blacks, and 5% of Hispanics are extremely obese.2 Obesity affects 14.3% of White children, 20.2% of Black children, and 22.4% of Latino children.3 o Income Level Obesity rates vary across income levels; those who are of a lower income bracket tend to have a higher prevalence of obesity than those who are more affluent. Obesity effects 25.4% of those who make <$36,000 a year, DN713 | Epidemiology and Social Determinants of Population Health 2 23.4% of those who make $36,000 to <$90,000 a year, and 19.4% of those who make over $90,000 a year. Extreme obesity effects 5.2% of those who make <$36,000 a year, 2.9% of those who make $36,000 to <$90,000 a year, and 1.8% of those who make over $90,000 a year.4 Place The prevalence of obesity varies widely across geographic locations. Disparities can be seen across regions, states, and even within states. The northeastern and southern regions of the United States have markedly higher obesity rates than the western region. Obesity rates are over 35% in West Virginia and Mississippi and 30% to <35% in North Dakota, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Iowa, Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Delaware. Obesity rates are the lowest (20% to <25%) in Vermont, Massachusetts, Montana, California, Utah, Hawaii, and Colorado.5 Rural regions generally have a higher prevalence of obesity than urban regions. Approximately 39.6% of rural adults are obese compared to the 33.4% of urban adults who are obese—a disparity of 6.2%.6 Time Trends Since the 1960s, the prevalence of obesity in American adults has more than doubled. In 1962, 13.4% of the adult population was obese and about 1% was extremely obese. Today, 35.7% of the adult population is obese and about 6% is extremely obese. Adolescent and childhood obesity rates began to increase in the 1980s, and now hover at approximately 17%.2 ______________________________________________________________________ 1.
