The research paper will include a discussion of the identified health issue, justification of the targeted population (for example epidemiological data), and identification of both positive and negative social, cultural, and/or behavioral factors that contribute to the specific health pattern or outcome. Breakdown of Paper: > Introduction: This section should include a brief description of the paper’s overall purpose and provide an overview of the health issue. > Health Issue: Review and synthesis of pertinent literature -Discuss the specific health problem/issue. -Discuss the relationship between the biological pathway and the major behavioral factors influencing the disease process and/or health outcome. -Do not select a health issue that has a strong genetic determinant as you will have little opportunity to discuss behavioral factors. > Targeted Population: Discuss the specific population on which you are focusing. -Provide a demographic description of the population. -Utilizing available literature on the priority population, assess the populations’ needs, assets, and capacities that affect the communities’ health. -Discuss any relevant social and cultural behaviors of the population. > Integration of the Health Issue and Target Population: Explain how cultural and social behaviors serve as risk and/or protective factors for the specific population contributing to the control and/or occurrence of the health condition. -Identify positive and negative factors related to social and cultural behaviors. -Apply the awareness gained about positive and negative factors related to social and cultural values (above) to the design or implementation of public health programs appropriate for the prioritized population. -Describe a theoretical model appropriate for application for the specific population and health condition. -Select methods that should be incorporated to evaluate the design or implementation of public health programs for the prioritized population. >Discussion of conclusions and recommendations: Summarize the literature and make conclusions about the relationship between the population and the specific health pattern -Make recommendations regarding what could be done to prevent and reduce the health problem in this population and how lessons learned in this population could be applied to other populations or the nation. > Describe the importance of cultural competence in communicating public health content for this population or in lessons learned to other groups.
