Scenario: You are an epidemiologist for a health research consulting firm. Your firm has been hired by a local hospital to assess the effects of disease occurrences on health care planning. The study period will cover the past 5 years, during which time the region served by the local hospital has seen an increase in certain health conditions, similar to other parts of the United States.
Your role is to review relevant information related to the hospitals readiness to anticipate healthcare needs related to noninfectious diseases and resources to address those needs. In this part of the project, identify and evaluate epidemiologic studies and other data that have direct applicability to noninfectious diseases, which may result in an increased utilization of health care resources. Your evaluation will be presented to the hospital board.
Select an existing health condition that may be reduced or eliminated based on lifestyle or environmental choices. Locate a current experimental or observational study of your selected health condition.
Prepare a 15 (excluding title slide, questions and answers slide, and reference slide) Microsoft PowerPoint presentation with voice-over in which you summarize your analyses and findings. Do the following in your presentation:
Briefly describe the health condition you selected.
Describe the experimental or observational research study of the health condition.
Critique the research study in terms of the study designs strengths and weaknesses and the relevance and usefulness of the data.
Critique the implications of the research findings, including morbidity and mortality repercussions and potential treatment implications.
Provide suggestions for additional research, including a descriiption of the preferred design, that would add value and understanding to the health condition from an epidemiologic standpoint and how goals could be achieved through the research study.
Include detailed speakers notes on all slides.
Format references according to APA guidelines.
