How will you use your selected study design to identify patterns, causes, and effects of health condition for the affected population of your study? Are there any limitations of the study design?

Overview: Now that you have solidified your study question and hypothesis, you will choose a study design for the final project and consider potential interventions.

Prompt: Write a draft of Section III of the final project. AIDress the following critical elements in your short paper: III. Epidemiology Study Design Proposal: In this section, you will choose an analytic epidemiological study design from those covered in this class, to be used to answer your research question and examine the hypothesis. Keep in mind this is not expected to be a complete research design, which would also include a sampling strategy, a measurement strategy, and statistical methods for the study.

 

a) Select the most appropriate analytic epidemiological study design to research your study question, explaining why you feel it is most appropriate.

b) How will you use your selected study design to identify patterns, causes, and effects of health condition for the affected population of your study? Are there any limitations of the study design? Tip: refer to journal activity for your analysis of the strengths and weaknesses (or limitations) of each study design.

c) Select an appropriate measure of association (e.g., oIDs ratio, relative risk) based on your chosen analytic epidemiological study design. Why is this measure of association appropriate?. d) Determine potential interventions for solving the public health issue for the specified population and/

d) Determine potential interventions for solving the public health issue for the specified population and/or

community based on the epidemiological practices you have used.  How would your epidemiological study inform potential interventions? Think about the different levels (i.e., primary, secondary, tertiary).

 

Be sure to cite scientific resources that support your response. You are not expected to determine the solution for the identified issue, but instead, consider strategies that may help solve the issue based on your knowledge from this course.
