Using an Epidemiological Approach to Critically Analyze a Population Health Problem

DNP-prepared nurses are expected to effectively use research methods to analyze data, “design evidence-based interventions, [and] predict and analyze outcomes…,” (AACN, 2006, p. 11).

Every research design requires you to evaluate your results. Epidemiologic studies are no different. In Week 7, you explored how using causal models can assist with evaluating the data analysis section of a study. In this week’s Discussion, you explored how epidemiological data are used to substantiate or negate the need for screening programs; evaluation is critical to ensure the data are sound and suitable as the basis for such decisions. As these experiences demonstrate, if the results of a study are not evaluated, they cannot be used to improve population health.

As you begin working on Assignment 4, Section 5 of the Major Assessment 7 paper, consider how you would evaluate the anticipated results of your population health intervention developed in Sections 3 and 4 of Assignment 4. As noted in the AACN Essentials of Doctoral Education for Advanced Nursing Practice, as a DNP-prepared nurse, you are expected to predict and analyze outcomes and then design evidence-based interventions based on your analysis. This Assignment provides you with an opportunity to practice that skill.

Begin developing Section 5, which is due by Friday 4/27/18 at 5pm

  • Review      the Major Assessment Overview (see attached file, section 5 highlighted in      yellow).
  • Review      Exhibit 8–7: The Four Stages of Evaluation on page 400 of Epidemiology      for Public Health Practice. In addition, review the articles in the      Learning Resources that describe program evaluation in various settings.

The four stages of evaluation are:

Formative Evaluation

Process Evaluation

Impact Evaluation

Outcome Evaluation

Section 5: Evaluation

To Complete:

In 3-page, write the following section of your paper:

1) An Introduction ending with a purpose statement (e.g. the purpose of this paper is…)

2) An evaluation plan based upon the health outcome that you have chosen and your anticipated results (please select the best method for evaluating the effect of the intervention out of the 4 methods mentioned above).

3)  A conclusion. 

APA format required and minimum of 4 scholarly required from the list of required readings below

P.S. The content must be of a professional portfolio quality; it must address every major subsection in the assignment; selects most appropriate evaluation method for the project and fully and clearly describes the method for evaluating the effect of the intervention using advanced critical thinking skills; demonstrates an applied level of understanding through reflections supported by the literature about the content area. Excels in meeting expectations for graduate-level work.

I really appreciate the work all your amazing writers do to ensure that my papers are always delivered on time and always of the highest quality. I was at a crossroads last semester and I almost dropped out of school because of the many issues that were bombarding but I am glad a friend referred me to you guys. You came up big for me and continue to do so. I just wish I knew about your services earlier.
