Assignment 2: Defining the Problem and Research Methods

Sections 1 and 2 of Major Assessment 7: Using an Epidemiological Approach to Critically Analyze a Population Health Problem

In Week 3, you identified a population health problem of interest to you for Assignment 1. With your Instructor’s approval, you will use this problem for the Major Assessment 7 paper, which is due by Day 3 in Week 11. This week, you will begin Assignment 2 (Sections 1 and 2 of the Major Assessment 7 paper).

Through having already identified a population health problem of interest (Assignment 1) and by exploring different types of research designs in Discussion 2 of this week, you will continue to develop and refine your initial thoughts as you explore these concepts in more depth. As you work on Sections 1 and 2 of the Major Assessment 7 paper, you will also consider assessment strategies you could utilize based on your research design and methods for collecting raw data.

Review the Major Assessment Overview

Sections 1 and 2 of Major Assessment 7: Using an Epidemiological Approach to Critically Analyze a Population Health Problem

How do culture and environment influence health? What role does personality play in health outcomes? How do stressful life events influence disease? As a health care professional, you have most likely witnessed the influence of psychosocial factors on individual health. These factors also have a significant impact on population health. Chronic conditions such as high blood pressure and heart disease, as well as degenerative diseases, can be studied at the population level through the use of epidemiologic methods (Friis, 2021). The insights gained from this type of research can then positively impact health outcomes locally, nationally, and globally.

As you continue working on Assignment 2, which is due by Day 7 of this week, consider how psychosocial factors influence your population and population health issue.
