Determinants of Health and Australia’s healthcare system

Determinants of health fall into many categories which includes social and economic factors, individual behavior and physical environment that are interrelated and have a great impact on health.
Social and economic factors include exposure to violence and crime, transportation and public safety, socioeconomic conditions such as poverty, education, employment, income and social norms like discrimination. Accidents happen unexpectedly especially road accidents between motor vehicles, pedestrians and bicycles, pollution from burning fuels and industrial wastes discharged to the environment, communicable diseases, urban housing problems and poor working conditions are only few evidence of health impacts from social and economic determinants. (WHO, 2018)
Physical activity, diet, alcohol, cigarette and other drug use are examples of individual behavior determinants of health. Smoking increases the chance of a person having a lung cancer or develop heart disease, so when a person quits smoking, the risk of having such disease is greatly reduced. (ODPHP, 2014) Having a physical activity such as exercise could increase life span, improve mental health as well as immune functions.
The Australian health care system has a complex division of responsibilities and roles across levels of government and it has also marked a complex interplay of public and private sectors (CMWF, 2018). The health care system in Australia provides universal access to a comprehensive range of services largely publicly funded through tax. Australians are provided with Medicare which is the Federal funded health insurance scheme that provides free or subsidized health care services. All Australians are eligible to be treated in a public hospital without charge.
With Indigenous health, the system is less accessible and less efficient. Also, those people in remote areas are not getting the care they need especially when they need it the most. When it comes to dental care there are approximately 19% of middle income earners, 11.2% wealthiest and 27.2% disadvantaged people who delayed or didn’t consult or see a dentist due to cost. (Duckett, 2018) Based on the website of the Department of Defence, there is a National ADF Family Health Program which is available to all ADF recognised dependants that offers access to free basic health care. They can reimburse for GP visits, all Medicare-recognised services and a range of allied health care such as dental care, optometry and physiotherapy. For ADF members either on or off base they can access medical and dental treatment, mental health services, ambulance transport and hospitalisation.

Case Study Project Management

Case studies are an important learning strategy in business classes as they provide an opportunity for you to critically analyze events that have taken place in real-life businesses. This develops your critical thinking and research skills as you research the competition and industry in which your business resides with an end goal of formulating a recommendation for the challenges faced by the company.
Read “The Risk Management Department” case on pages 641–642 of your textbook. As you complete the analysis, address the topics below in your case analysis.
1. Financial risk, strategic risk, operational-technical risk, and operational-safety risk represent project risk sources within an organization. Discuss each from a theoretical aspect.
2. Evaluate which of the sources/risks above with which Cooper Manufacturing is involved. Explain the amount of risk associated with each.
3. Explain scheduling techniques that Cooper Manufacturing might use to mitigate its risks.
4. Explain specific tasks that Cooper Manufacturing should use to manage its project risks.

Essay Review Checklist
Always title your essays using an original and creative title.
Remain cognizant of your audience and purpose. Do not preach, lecture, moralize. “If you would only learn to love instead of hate, the world would be a better place.”
Use Present Tense when referring to the source text(s), and Keep Tense Consistent.
Integrate a summary that includes the title of the source or primary text(s) and the author’s (authors’) full name(s), i.e. first and last names on first mention. Subsequently, use author’s last name only. If at least two of your sources have the same last name, you must mention those authors’ first and last names throughout your text to avoid confusion.
Do not include opinion, evaluation, assessment, and too much detail in a summer. Give only the main idea of the reading.
Establish clear context to ground your essay: who, when, where, what, why, how
Do not make absolute, universal, and sweeping remarks. Eliminate using everyone, everybody, all, the world, everything, every time, none. Everyone suffers with some kind of disability.
Do not use clichés: “It is better to be safe than sorry.”
Try to avoid rhetorical questions, especially to open your essay. It is a very sophomoric device and has little place in college-level writing. Some students write an entire opening paragraph comprising a series of rhetorical questions. An effective thesis is more productive, and does the work of rhetorical questions. Although you may use rhetorical questions in your prewriting, eliminate by your final draft.
Do not say “I honestly….” The ethos of your text comes from the credibility of your writing and the credibility of the support you provide for our position of a subject.
Keep Voice/Perspective Consistent: First Person (singular, capital I); Second Person (you); Third Person (one; they). At all costs, try to avoid writing in Second Person: “If you don’t trust people.” Or “You should not discriminate.”
Avoid unnecessary shifts in Voice/Perspective: “Being independent is the ability to control our own lives. Independence also has to do with your ability to work things out, your aspirations and goals. An independent person has the ability to do his homework by himself without needing the help of others. I feel that I have the sufficient autonomy to do whatever I want and not rely on anything or anyone else.” (example taken from a student’s text in 2015
It is your essay, so please do not say, “I believe; I think; I feel; In my opinion; It is my view; I guess.” Just stay your position. In my opinion, I believe Unschooling is a more beneficial method of education than traditional curricula because it allows for more creativity, students do not get bored being forced to study subjects in which they are not interested, and students are more knowledgeable in a subject because they are not forced to study it in a limited time period.
Integrate quotes smoothly, using effective signal phrases to introduce your direct quotations and paraphrases.
Contextualize your quotes. You may need to insert authorial comments to clarify the context if the body text is insufficient. For example, “I tell it I hate it and despise it” ( Walker 41). The reader does not know to what the pronoun it refers. Using brackets, clarify “I tell [the blop in my eye] I hate it and despise it.” Or you may choose to be more general by saying, “I tell [my blind eye] I hate it….” (Walker 41).
Then continue to explain the significance of every quote you incorporate.. What does the author mean, and why is this particular quote or paraphrase or summary significant to your argument? Avoid just summarizing and retelling the text. Analyze.
Quote accurately. “I left the girl there, do you still carrying her?” The original text states, “I left the girl there, are you still carrying her?”
Pay attention to parallelism. For example,
“My best abilities are responsibility, independence, and reason.” (Use all nouns)
“My best qualities are being responsible, being independent and being reasonable/ using
reason.” (Use all adjectives)
My hopes are to be responsible, to be independent and to be reasonable.” (Use all verbs)
Be vigilant of your tone and diction.
Never use exclamation marks in analytical writing, only in personal narratives.
Pay attention to use of apostrophes.
Avoid ambiguous pronouns. If two or more subjects are the same, you may need to use nouns instead of pronouns to clarify an antecedent (the noun to which the pronoun refers).
Ex. John was to meet Ronald at the football stadium for three o’ clock in the afternoon, but he was late; so he left without him.
While the general rule is that the pronoun relates to the noun to which it is closer/closet, to avoid confusion, write the name of the person.
John was to meet Ronald at the football stadium for three o’ clock in the afternoon, but Ronald was late; so John left without him.
Avoid leaving the relative pronouns this, that, those, these standing alone. Always try to use a noun as well. Ex. This indicates should be This example/ issue/ meaning indicates
Write: The reason is or The reason is that….Do not write The reason is because or This is the reason why.
The reason Marion left the party so early was that she was tired after a grueling day at work.
Wrong The reason Miriam does so well on Math exams is because she reviews her
notes every day.
Correct The reason Jason does so well on psychology exams is because that he reviews his notes every day.
Wrong The reason why Ronald always participates in class discussions is because he
does all his readings before the class meetings.
Correct The reason why Miriam always participates in class is because that she does all
her readings before the class meetings.
Revise only after your complete your first draft.
Edit carefully.
Proofread carefully. You may make hand-written changes on your final document if you notice errors before submission and are unable to reprint before the deadline.
Include word count.

(3) Explain the methodology chosen (4) Justify the usage of the chosen method (5) Assess the strategies, response rate, sampling integrity, result accuracy and any potential pitfalls of the chosen method (6) Evaluate the key ethical concerns/issues of the chosen method (7) Appraise the advantages and disadvantages of the chosen method (8) Recommend improvements to avoid some of the difficulties encountered in the chosen method

The methodology essay will follow the usual structure of an essay e.g.: The title page will be followed by the essay which will contain a clear introduction, body and conclusion. Following the conclusion, a reference list will be presented (see Student Manual).

You will be marked on your ability to analyse and synthesise the literature e.g.: the adequacy of application, strengths and weaknesses, whether they provide a strong enough foundation on which to base rigorous research. Therefore, do not write a descriptive essay.

This is a research essay requiring you to search academic journals only – not textbooks or nonacademic internet sources. You should primarily search the academic journals from online library. If you feel it is appropriate, you may use other journals if you consider the journal article to be a relevant and quality source for your assignment.

A minimum of eight (8) journal reference sources will help you write a more complete paper, if all the sources are relevant. It is preferable that your journal sources be no older than 10 years and, definitely, no earlier than 2000.

Note: you are discouraged from including excessive numbers of citations in your essay that do not add critical significance to your discussion, as there is NO reward in the marking process for quantity over quality.

Violence in the Family & Community

Paper two assesses Course Learning Objectives (CLO) 1, 2, 5 and 6. Paper 2 will be a 5 to 7-page scholarly paper following APA style, addressing one of the topics listed below. The content of your paper will be based on peer-reviewed scholarly articlesi. You must substantively use a minimum of six, scholarly articlesii no older than 2005. Most papers will use more, but six are required.
In the second paper, you are only allowed to use two quotes. This requires you to effectively paraphrase and cite your sources. If this is difficult for you, please reach out to University writing resources.
Before choosing your topic, look to see that there are sufficient scholarly articles available to you. Please do not rely on Google searches. Use our library to find your articles.
This is the second formal paper. Papers should follow the format for formal papers. Papers should not be written in the first-person and should not include personal stories, opinions, or editorial comment. I welcome that style of writing in the reflections, but not in the formal papers. Be sure you are reporting on the scholarly findings in the field. Teach the reader about the selected topic.

Paper Topic Choose one of the topics listed below. The topic you choose will be used throughout the paper and must address each of the required content. See Content Areas below. Please note: these content areas all have a strong emotional and political element to them. Your job is to learn about these issues and present the literature that helps us better understand the issues. As a formal paper, you should not editorialize, hyperbolize, or in other ways present you opinions. You can present the state of the literature and implications, but not personal opinion. 1. Gun violence in America 2. Hate crimes in the US a. Consider the current trends in hate crimes and conditions influencing these trends 3. Sexual Violence on College Campuses 4. Sex Trafficking

Content Areas Each paper must address the areas outlined below. These content areas measure the course learning objective listed in the parentheses following the content area heading. You do not have to address them in the order they are presented. Order should be determined by flow and coherence.
1. Problem area and controversy being addressed (CLO1) Define the problem. What is the problem? What is the current view on this problem? Discuss magnitude of the problem (how much does it happen) and current trends. Discuss the rates or prevalence of your selected topic. Are rates of the area of violence you are writing on increasing or decreasing? In other words, don’t just present numbers, discuss them. Cite your sources even when paraphrasing. 2. Factors and Theories explaining this type of violence In this section, you will discuss factors associated with the perpetration of the type of violence you have chosen to research. This may include characteristics of perpetrators, risk factors that increase the risk that someone will perpetrate this type of violence (i.e. hate crimes, sexual violence, gun violence, or sex trafficking) or theories used to explain this type of violence. Again, theories would address why this violence is perpetrated. Focus on the perpetration of these forms of violence, not on the victims.
For instance, I do not want the paper on sexual violence on college campuses to focus on the characteristics of women who have been victims of sexual violence. I am interested in conditions that increase the perpetration of sexual violence. While victim research may provide some interesting insights into the issue, it is too easy to fall into victim-blaming and miss the real point. Please address your selected topic from the perspective of discussing our current understanding of why this type of violence is perpetrated in the US. 3. Analysis of the Justice System & Institutional Response (LO6) What is the justice system response to the issue? What are the laws related to this area of violence? How are we responding to this form of violence through our formal social institutions? This can include policies and protocol by police, prosecutors and judges. This may include other relevant social institutions that you identify during your research. For instance, you may discuss how college administrators are addressing the issue of sexual violence on college campuses. But for all topics, you will discuss the justice system response. For instance, you will discuss laws and law enforcement. You may also discuss issues such as evidence and prosecution. Again, think in terms of formal social institutions. 4. Informal Response (LO5) In this section you will discuss how individuals and communities respond to and think about the issue. You will discuss how informal systems such as family, friends, neighborhoods and communities can respond in informal ways to prevent and respond to your topic. Discuss how individuals from diverse backgrounds and communities can prevent and intervene in the type of violence you have decided to address in your paper. This section you address how we can better address violence in our communities in order to reduce its prevalence and impact.
Writing Each of the following issues should be attended to in your paper.
Writing Matters  Purdue OWL also is a great resource for writing questions.  Our own Writing Center has developed tutorials to help you:  Please use these resources. They are easy to access and provide a means for improving your writing as you go. APA Style: Papers must follow APA style   Be sure that your in-text citation and reference page follow proper format  An abstract is not required, but students may find it helpful. Strong introductions are required.
pg. 3
Introduction & Conclusion: be sure that you start with a clear thesis statement and conclude the paper with an effective summary of the thesis and key points discussed. Do not introduce new content. Quotes: You are allowed to use only two quotes – ONLY TWO QUOTES. If you choose to quote an author, the quote must be well integrated into the text and contribute to the narrative. If it doesn’t really add anything to quote the source, paraphrase- say it in words that make sense in your narrative. Always cite the source. Required reading as source: You are allowed to use your textbook and other required reading as a source, but it should not be the majority of your paper. The textbook and required reading does not count toward your six scholarly articles, but would need to be cited when used. Papers should be informed by your review of the literature. Editorializing: Do not editorialize. Provide an objective account of the issue. While I understand that these topics can evoke strong emotion, this is the place for scholarly discourse. Save the emotional reactions for reflections. Clarity: Please be clear and concise. You don’t need to use words or concepts that you don’t understand. Use the knowledge gained from the reading and lectures to choose sources that you understand and that contribute to your paper. Keep sentences simple and use paragraphs to separate ideas. Assume that the reader does not know the issue. Always proofread and edit to ensure clarity. Organization:  Headings: You are welcome to use headings. It is a good way to stay organized and a way to be sure that each content area is addressed. Each area is worth 10 points (equally weighted), so be sure to address all areas.  Pages per section: Considering the page requirement, each section would be about 1 ½ pages. Each section does not have to be the same length; some may require more discussion than others. But overall, think in terms of a page and a half for each section. A paragraph is not sufficient to address any content area. Proof-read and Edit: Be sure to proof-read your paper and edit carefully. It is easy to miss our won own mistakes. Consider peer-review.
