The Planning Process

DUE 3/15/2018 8 P.M EST

PUBLIC HEALTH ….CAMPAIGN PRESCRIPTION DRUG OVERDOSE

APA FORMAT MIN 4 REFERENCES

 

Discussion: The Planning Process

In planning for your public health campaign (PRESCRIPTION DRUG OVERDOSE), first you must identify the problem. You ask questions such as “what is happening in the community?” and “what are the critical issues that need to be addressed within my target audience?” By asking these types of questions, you gain knowledge about the true needs of the community and can develop public health campaigns reflecting those needs. Second, you must establish your goals for your campaign, and identify effective marketing techniques and a communication plan. The planning process is a comprehensive yet valuable tool for any public health leader to maintain clarity, organization, and focus of the campaign.

For this Discussion, consider the important elements of the planning process and what factors (individual, environmental, financial, social, to name a few) could inhibit or enhance the development and/or implementation of your public health campaign.

With these thoughts in mind:

Post a brief description of which element of the planning process is most valuable in developing a public health campaign (PRESCRIPTION DRUG OVERDOSE) and explain why. Then describe one factor (individual, environmental, financial, etc.) that may facilitate and one factor that may inhibit the planning of your public health campaign and explain why.

non-parametric and parametric tests.

Answer to this post. APA, citation and reference . I need an answer that support the text below .

Discuss the differences between non-parametric and parametric tests.

Parametric and nonparametric tests are terms used by statistics shins frequently when doing analysis. Parametric and nonparametric tests referred to hypothesis test of the mean and median. The mean being the parametric and the median being a non-parametric. Parametric test assumes that your date of follows a specific distribution whereas non-parametric test also known as distribution free test do not.

Provide an example of each and discuss when it is appropriate to use the test. Next, discuss the assumptions that must be met by the investigator to run the test.

An example of a parametric test is a 1-2 sample T Test. It is appropriate to use this type of analysis when the sample size is greater than 20. In order to run a parametric test a researcher must know and assume that the test can perform well with skewed and non normal distributions. Another assumption a researcher must have in order to run a parametric test is the knowledge of knowing that the parametric test can perform well when the spread of each group is different.

An example of a non-parametric test is a 1 sample sign. One reason to perform a study using a non-parametric test is because you can perform a parametric test with non normal data. Another reason to use a non-parametric test in a study is when you have a very small sample size,  original data, rank data or outliers which are not removable.  An assumption that must be met any nonparametric test is that the data for all groups must have the same dispersion.

Epidemiologic Designs

Epidemiologic Designs

As introduced in the first few weeks of this course, investigators use various epidemiological study designs to study health problems and the effects of health interventions. You have examined several study designs, including descriptive designs (in Week 2) and analytic study designs that are observational (in Week 3) or experimental (this week). As a DNP student, you should be able to determine which study design would be most suitable for addressing a health problem of interest to you, as this is a foundation for evidence-based practice.

For this Discussion, you will consider which epidemiologic study design (i.e., descriptive, ecologic, cross-sectional, case-control, cohort, or experimental) is most appropriate for investigating the population health problem you selected for Assignment 1. In addition, you will consider which epidemiologic data sources you would use to examine your health problem.

To prepare:

  • Reflect on the population      health problem you identified in Assignment 1, which you will use for      Major Assessment 7, and your early review of the literature.
  • Identify a question for your      study; this will help you select an appropriate design.
  • Consider which epidemiologic      study design (i.e., descriptive, ecologic, cross-sectional, case-control,      cohort, or experimental) is most appropriate for addressing your selected      health problem based upon the assumptions and basic tenets of each design.
  • Determine which      epidemiological design(s) would not be appropriate for your study and why.
  • Also, explore the various      health data resources that were presented in Chapter 5 of the course      text, Epidemiology for Public Health Practice. Consider which      data resources you could use for your study, assessing the strengths and      limitations of those resources.

By tomorrow 03/21//2018, write a minimum of 550 words in APA format with at least 3 scholarly references from the list of required readings below. Include the level one headings as numbered below”

Post a cohesive scholarly response that addresses the following:

1) Briefly summarize the population health problem you selected for Major Assessment 7, and state the study question you want to answer.

2) Explain which epidemiologic study design is most appropriate for your study, as well as the assumptions and tenets that support its application.

3) Analyze the strengths and the limitations of the potential data sources you might use for your study.

The authors of this article explored treatment options for smoking cessation by examining the research literature, including looking at the results of randomized control trials. This article provides an example of how such a literature review can influence practice demonstrate the use and benefits of randomized control trial study designs.

This article examines programs that integrate substance abuse treatment and pregnancy, parenting, or child services. The authors conclude that there is a need for funding of high-quality randomized control trial and improved reporting practices. This article also demonstrates the application of analytic research designs to explore a population health problem.

This large-scale, randomized clinical trial that began in 1982 was designed to test the effectiveness of aspirin and beta carotene in preventing heart attacks (myocardial infarctions, or MIs) in male physicians aged 40–84. The first phase of the trial, which included more than 22,000 study subjects, demonstrated that low-dose aspirin does, in fact, reduce the risk of a first MI by 44%. This article provides a good example of the types of large-scale studies conducted using epidemiologic principles that lead to improved population health.
