the chapters in this module introduce frameworks for practice in the community, frameworks for gathering and sharing evidence in regard to health conditions in the community, and the epidemiologic response to the spread of diseases and issues in the community.
Although the COVID response has been a fertile field for epidemiology for the past year, please choose another issue for this discussion.
Choose a disease or issue you see in your practice. Examples might be
- ED: automobile accidents
- ICU: ventilator-associated pneumonia
- OB: pre-term labor
- Mental Health: addiction
These are just a few examples – there are other areas of practice and many other issues.
By 11:59 pm ET Wednesday, post a comprehensive response to the following:
Go to Chapter 6 in your textbook and review the different epidemiology models. Use the steps in Table 6.1 on p. 148 to create a response to the issue you have chosen. Note, that in order to complete the investigation, you will need to do an investigation in the workplace and in the literature.
You may present your work as written or create a conceptual framework (image or diagram).
