PBHL20003 Social Epidemiology: TOPIC : DIABETES
The assessment task is to write a report that could be presented to a local health department that is responsible for planning initiatives to address your condition. This report must:
1) review and critique the social epidemiological data that is currently available that could be used to inform public health practice on your topic;
2) outline what additional social epidemiological data would need to be collected as well as how and why it would be needed prior to, during, and after any strategy was implemented; and
3) outline how the social epidemiological data would be used to inform other practitioners, researchers and policy makers. This is an INDIVIDUAL assessment.
In preparing this assessment task, it is important to keep in mind that your intended audience is a local health department. You will need to balance the technical demands of the topic with the needs of this audience, with the understanding that that the aim of such a report in real life would be to inform practitioners working in the field and underpin policy development. In other words, you will need to focus on the aspects of your topic that are most relevant in the development of new strategies and policy and the evidence from the literature that would support this activity. However, this is a formal report and must use appropriate language and referencing.
