Mock Epidemiology Study Summary

Mock Epidemiology Study Summary

Mock Epidemiology Study Summary

Introduction and Alignment

This exercise will test whether you can apply first the basic principles, vocabulary, and processes you learned, both biostatistical and epidemiologic, in the first four weeks of the course, and given the practice you had with reading and responding to three different published articles in the fifth week, to actually designing a health sciences research study and writing it up in scholarly format, with all it appropriate pieces, “just as if” you had actually carried it out.  Hopefully, in the future, you will have the chance to carry out such a study for real.

    KEY POINTS regarding PH Agencies

    • The collection, maintenance, analysis, and storage of health data are vital for planning effective public health action.

    • Public health organizations play an important role in conducting research while also providing services to promote the public’s health.

    • Health policy and law can be influenced through epidemiological research.

    • Surveillance systems in the community continuously update health status information and provide us with feedback on community medical services.

    • Epidemiologists use many types of technology for effective communication. Automation of information systems allows public health professionals to be alerted at all levels.

    • Ethical issues, data privacy, quality of data, and storage are some of the challenges associated with the use of information and technology in the field of epidemiology.

    Exercise 6.3 epidemiology study summary Guide

    Getting Started

     

    Directions: This assignment will give you an opportunity to demonstrate what you have learned about epidemiologic methods, statistical tests, bioethical principles in research, and how to apply these to clinical problems.

     

    Choose a plausible epidemiology topic pertaining to a diverse population you would like to study. The topic should relate to a diverse (in terms of ethnicity, nationality, culture, etc.) population. In APA style, write a formal paper that reads as if you had actually conducted the study. It must include the elements as outlined below and be coherent throughout. The paper should be no longer than 4-6 pages of text; about the length of a published article. Include title, abstract and references pages. Mock Epidemiology Study Summary

     

    1. Write the purpose of your study along with 2-3 sentences elaborating on the problem and significance of the problem related to the purpose. You may use supporting evidence from other published work to explain or support the problem you are describing.

     

    2. Write at least 2 research questions related to the purpose of the study. Be explicit rather than vague.

     

    3. Write a null and an alternative hypothesis for each of these two questions.

     

    4. State which one of your two research questions you are addressing from this point on. Identify and explain the dependent and independent variables, as well as the variable type (nominal, ordinal, etc.) for each variable.

     

    5. Describe the subjects you have included in this study, including the number of subjects and how they were recruited. Describe all the characteristics and factors of the subjects that are relevant to the purpose of the study.

     

    6. What is the basic design or type of study you have used to investigate your hypothesis? Explain how you collected your data.

     

    7. Select the statistical test needed to test the null hypothesis. The selected statistical test must be selected from the ones reviewed in this course, unless you have permission from your course instructor to use a different test. Explain why you selected the test and how you have analyzed the variables. State in general terms (not actual numbers) what your results were from the statistical analyses, and whether they led you to reject or fail to reject your null hypothesis. Mock Epidemiology Study Summary

     

    8. What ethical issues or bias need to be taken into consideration with this study? Please explain.

     

    9. State the implications of these findings for healthcare practice. Discuss the impact these results would have on clinical practice and healthcare policy. Use published work to give support to your discussion. (See next page for grading rubric. )
