Community Development Nursing: Theory And Practice

Students are then to conduct library research and to acquire knowledge and understanding about their chosen topic. In a written essay format, Students are required to:

  • Clearly state your chosen topic. Discuss the incidence and prevalence (epidemiology) of reported cases globally, including the current estimated morbidity and mortality rates of the condition.
  • Discuss the cohort most at risk of the condition (the age of the population mostly affected).
  • Review the current strategies for health promotion of the chosen topic and discuss the effectiveness of the programs. Do the programs appear to be working? Consider if the programs are suitable to the cohort most at risk.

Finally this assignment will review the current strategies for health promotion of the chosen topic and discuss the effectiveness of the programs, a discussion on the effectiveness of the programmes and will consider if the health programmes are appropriate for the cohort most at risk.

Epidemiology; Incidence and Prevalence (Suggested heading) (200-250 words)

  • Clearly state your chosen topic. Discuss the incidence and prevalence (epidemiology) of reported cases globally, including the current estimated morbidity and mortality rates of the condition.
  • Discuss the cohort most at risk of the condition (the age of the population mostly affected)

This section should address the age of which people are mostly affected by this condition. Can you ascertain if there is also a particular gender which is affected or any associated co-morbidities or factors that make people more vulnerable to this condition? This is where you can use the information from the social determinants of health to help and you can use this in the reference.

Health Promotion strategies (Suggested heading 200-250 words)

  • Review the current strategies for health promotion of the chosen topic and discuss the effectiveness of the programs. Do the programs appear to be working? Consider if the programs are suitable to the cohort most at risk.

This section is as it states. Please look at the current health promotions that the Gov or local health authorities are using to make people aware of the condition and how they can prevent the condition. Comment on some of the promotions (are they in the form of media adds / pamphlets etc.? ) and what are the purposes of these promotions ?
