Consider your current level of activity in politics and the policy process arena.

Describe your current level of involvement (this could be as only a registered voter, being on policy committees at work, involvement in local, state, or federal legislative activities, nurse’s association involvement, etc.).

Identify a problem in your clinical setting and explain how the problem could be framed as a policy issue. What ethical issues surround the problem? What type of research would best support your problem as a policy issue?

Review your list, and indicate with an “O” on any items that was the result of information acquired based other people in your life (i.e., family, friends, co-workers, etc.)

I need someone to write a 5 page paper. First compile a list of everything (behaviors, traits, adjectives, images, etc.) you have ever seen, heard, or have been told about older adults age 65 and older.
Review your list, and indicate a “P” on any items that was the result of information acquired based on your personal experiences.
Review your list, and indicate with an “O” on any items that was the result of information acquired based other people in your life (i.e., family, friends, co-workers, etc.)
Review your list, and indicate with an “M” on any items that was the result of information acquired by the media (i.e., television, books, movies, magazines, advertisements, etc.
Review your list, and indicate other sources where you may have derived your items.
Finally, describe what you learned or became aware of about older adults after doing this exercise.
Then summarize three peer-reviewed articles below.

Describe the chosen communicable disease, including causes, symptoms, mode of transmission, complications, treatment, and the demographic of interest (mortality, morbidity, incidence, and prevalence). Is this a reportable disease? If so, provide details about reporting time, whom to report to, etc.

Epidemiology Paper

Write a paper (2,000-2,500 words) in which you apply the concepts of epidemiology and nursing research to a communicable disease. Refer to “Communicable Disease Chain,” “Chain of Infection,” and the CDC website for assistance when completing this assignment.

Communicable Disease Selection

  1. Chickenpox
  2. Tuberculosis
  3. Influenza
  4. Mononucleosis
  5. Hepatitis B
  6. HIV
  7. Ebola
  8. Measles
  9. Polio
  10. Influenza

Epidemiology Paper Requirements

  1. Describe the chosen communicable disease, including causes, symptoms, mode of transmission, complications, treatment, and the demographic of interest (mortality, morbidity, incidence, and prevalence). Is this a reportable disease? If so, provide details about reporting time, whom to report to, etc.
  2. Describe the social determinants of health and explain how those factors contribute to the development of this disease.
  3. Discuss the epidemiologic triangle as it relates to the communicable disease you have selected. Include the host factors, agent factors (presence or absence), and environmental factors. Are there any special considerations or notifications for the community, schools, or general population?
  4. Explain the role of the community health nurse (case finding, reporting, data collection, data analysis, and follow-up) and why demographic data are necessary to the health of the community.
  5. Identify at least one national agency or organization that addresses the communicable disease chosen and describe how the organizations contribute to resolving or reducing the impact of the disease.
  6. Discuss a global implication of the disease. How is this addressed in other countries or cultures? Is this disease endemic to a particular area? Provide an example.

A minimum of three peer-reviewed or professional references is required.

Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines. An abstract is not required.
