Hello Pls Help Due on 03/7/12 wednesday Public health professionals need a strong understanding of the concepts presented in the five core courses: Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Environmental Health Science, Health Policy and Management, and Social and Behavioral Sciences. Each of these courses presented concepts that underlie the practice and profession of public health. Understanding biostatistics concepts supports your understanding of research results and outcomes, and it helps you determine the effectiveness of a program or intervention. Social and behavioral health, meanwhile, introduces health disparities and behavioral theories that help public health professionals understand why individuals make certain choices and plan effective interventions. To prepare for this Discussion, review the course descriptions of the five core courses. Reflect on what you learned in those courses and how you have applied the knowledge in your practicum setting. Answer Questions below in 250-350 words 1) Write a brief description explaining your agency placement and your activities to date. - Activities will include health prevention-education of client and agency employees-evaluation of health prevention methods and outcomes 2) Which of the five core areas best describes the activities associated with your practicum? -PUBH 6175: Health Policy and Management This course examines the factors that influence and improve health outcomes of individuals and populations, with attention to the goals of Healthy People 2010 and the main components and issues of organization, financing, and delivery of health services and public health systems in the United States. Topics include management theories and processes, systems thinking, strategic planning and partnerships, quality and performance improvement, leadership, and organizational behavior. The policy process, as well as the advocacy role of the public health professional in influencing local, state, and federal policy, is addressed. The impact of global trends on public health practice, policy, and systems is also considered. 3) How did your coursework from the specific classes (described above) prepare you for the practicum? (For instance, did you find that the information gleaned from your study of Environmental Health [PUBH 6165] was most useful to you?) 4) What was missing from these classes that you feel would have aided you in carrying out your duties and assignments at the agency? -Nothing is missing REFERENCE: Course Descriptions for the Five Core Areas PUBH 6115: Social, Behavioral, and Cultural Factors in Public Health This course presents an examination and analysis of the major social, behavioral, and cultural variables and issues that affect the health of populations, including community, gender, age, socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, and environment, as well as behavioral risks. Research, theoretical, and conceptual frameworks from the social and behavioral sciences are explored as applied to public health problems and the reduction of health disparities. PUBH 6125: Biostatistics This course addresses the application and interpretation of biostatistics in public health research and practice, including descriptive methodologies, statistical inference and probability, analysis of variance, and simple linear regression. Introduction to a statistical computer package such as SPSS is provided. PUBH 6145: Epidemiology This course provides an epidemiological approach to the study of incidence, prevalence, and patterns of disease and injury in populations and the application of this study to the control of public health problems. Key sources of data for epidemiological purposes will be identified. Principles and limitations of public health screening programs will be addressed. Students learn to calculate basic epidemiological measures and to draw appropriate inferences from epidemiological data and reports. PUBH 6165: Environmental Health This course offers a study of the environmental factors that affect the health and safety of a community. Topics include causal links between chemical, physical, and biological hazards in the environment and their impact on health, and the genetic, physiologic, and psychosocial factors that influence environmentally compromised health outcomes. Environmental risk assessment methods, strategies for effective management and control of environmental exposures, and legal, regulatory, and ethical considerations at the federal, state, and local levels are explored.
