Epidemiology

Q​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‌‌‍​uestion 13. How would you account for the high infant mortality rates reported in developing countries compared with the rates in countries that have developed market economies? Question 14. Compute the sex ratios for the numbers of deaths shown in the following table. Compare the sex ratios for mortality from the specific causes shown in the table and, based on your own ideas and research, suggest reasons for the differences in the sex ratios for the three causes of death. Number of Deaths, 2016 Cause of Death Males Females All Malignant Neoplasms 314,571 263,467 HIV Disease 4,554 1,606 Septicemia 19,678 20,935 Assignment 1: Measures in Epidemiology Paper This is a two (2)-part assignment based on questions 13 & 14 in the ‘Study questions & Exercises’ found at the end of Chapter 3 of our Friis & Sellers course text.In part one (1), the student will calculate sex ratios for specific diseases. In part two (2), the student will discuss the prevalence and incidence of infant mortality in developed vs. developing countries. Assignment Criteria: Part 1:Calculations1. Using Question 14 in Chapter 3: respond to the questions concerning the sex ratios for males and females. a. Calculate sex ratios for number of deaths in th​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‌‌‍​e table b. Compare the sex ratios for mortality from the specific causes show in the table. c. Provide suggestions and rationales for the differences in the sex ratios and causes of death. d. Create an appendix (attach to paper) that includes the questions & calculations. Part 2: Scholarly Paper based on Question 13 in Chapter 3 1. Write a 5 page paper including statistics showing comparisons of high infant mortality rates in developed vs. developing countries. 2. Explain probable causes for these high rates of incidence & prevalence. Include the Epi Triangle. 3. Discuss strategies that a community healthcare nurse can use in order to help at-risk populations and combat future incidences. 4. Include an introductory paragraph, purpose statement, and a conclusion. 5. Write the paper in third person, not first person (meaning do not use ‘we’ or ‘I’) and in a scholarly manner. To clarify: I, we, you, me, our may not be used. In addition, describing yourself as the researcher or the author should not be used. 6. Include a minimum of five (5) scholarly sources such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), or professional peer-reviewed scholarly journal references (review in Ulrich Periodical Directory) and be less than five (5) years old to suppo​‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‌‌‍​rt the paper.
