HPE 4393: Epidemiology; Fact Sheet Assignment

100 points

Due 4/16 via eLearning

Assignment

Students will conduct research on a specific health condition, disease, injury, or other health outcome that impacts humans, then create a concise fact sheet summarizing findings and describe the condition you selected. You may work independently or with a partner, but no more than two students may work together.

NOTE: Because we are working online for the rest of the semester, I do not expect an infographic. I expect a regular word document with an introduction paragraph and then additional sections of information that can be listed as bullet points or paragraph narrative. You should still include at least one chart, map, or other scientific graphic that provides additional content for your fact sheet.

Fact Sheet Requirements

  • The fact sheet should be 2 pages minimum, 4 pages maximum (pages after the 5th page will not be reviewed/graded). References must be included in the 2-4 pages. You should include full references at the end. You may use APA style or another style, just be consistent.
  • Include at least one graphic – but make sure it’s a scientific graphic like a map that shows frequency distribution, a chart, a medical diagram, etc.
  • You must include at least 5 references, and you must have at least 1 reference that is a peer-reviewed, scientific review or original study from public health or medical journals, published within the last 5 years.

Steps to follow to create the fact sheet

  • Choose a topic
    • It should be a disease or health condition that affects humans. You can use the A-Z index on the US CDC website (www.cdc.gov) as a starting point.
  • Conduct your research
  • Limit the scope of your fact sheet
    • Pull out the key pieces of information to answer each question as concisely as possible.

Questions to answer within your fact sheet

For some topics, these will not all be appropriate to include, but be sure to clearly state that fact and a justification so that I don’t think you have just skipped it. You don’t have to use this order.

  • a)What is the name of the disease or condition? How is it defined and diagnosed?
  • b)Why is it a problem? Describe its symptoms, morbidity, and mortality.
  • c)What are the major risk factors of the condition? Is there a known agent or cause of the disease? If the cause is not completely understood, what are the leading candidates for causes?
  • d)What populations are at risk for this disease or condition? Does the disease vary by subgroups or by geographic location? How? Consider how the disease or condition varies by aspects of person, place, and time.
  • e)What are the appropriate measures of morbidity and mortality? For example, consider using the following… (include all that are appropriate for your topic, as well as any other measures of morbidity or mortality that you find)
    1. Incidence
    2. Prevalence
    3. Case fatality rate
    4. Proportional mortality ratio
    5. Sex- or age-specific mortality rate
  • f)How is the disease treated?
  • g)How is the disease prevented (are there behaviors that can help prevent the condition/outcome)?

Tips

  • Put your name(s) on the fact sheet
  • Spell out acronyms or abbreviations on the first reference, then use the letters
  • Use graphics or tables to back up your points – but only use graphics that add to the information
  • Use bullets to simplify key points
  • Take into account the reading level of your audience – avoid the use of jargon or words that are too complex
  • I recommend that you choose COVID-19 for this assignment, but you may choose a different topic if you prefer.
