Purpose Infectious disease occurs worldwide and must be addressed just as chronic disease is approached. This assignment will offer the opportunity to explore the various communicable diseases, the epidemiological background data as well as the implications of these infections. Course Outcomes Through this assessment, the student will meet the following Course Outcomes.
CO 3: Identify appropriate outcome measures and study designs applicable to epidemiological subfields such as infectious disease, chronic disease, environmental exposures, reproductive health, and genetics. CO 6: Identify important sources of epidemiological data.
Total Points Possible This assessment is worth 125 points. Due Date Submit your file(s) by Sunday, 11:59 p.m. MT of Week 5. Requirements Criteria for Content Apply the concepts of population health and epidemiology to one of the following infectious diseases: (Choose one from the following list for your paper.) Zika Salmonella MRSA Clostridioides difficile Include the following in your assignment: Course content from Weeks 1-5. Analysis of the communicable disease (causes, symptoms, mode of transmission, complications, treatment) to include demographic break down (mortality, morbidity, incidence, and prevalence). Identify and synthesize the determinants of health as related to the development of this disease. Identify and describe all elements of the epidemiological triad: Host factors, agent factors (presence or absence), and environmental factors. Succinctly define the role of the primary care nurse practitioner according to a national nurse practitioner organization (AANP, for example) and synthesize the role to the management of infectious diseases (surveillance, primary/secondary/tertiary interventions, reporting, data collecting, data analysis, and follow-up). This includes the integration of models of practice which support the implementation of an evidence-based practice. Refer to your course textbook for models of practice examples. A minimum of three scholarly references, research articles, is required. Web sites may be utilized but do not count towards the three scholarly references. Your course text may be utilized but will not count towards the three scholarly references. Preparing the paper
