Assignment 3: Research Paper


This week, you will continue to work on your research paper, which is due in Week 6. Each week, a 2-page paper covering specific issues to consider for your epidemiological topic is due. Use a minimum of five current resources published within the past five years to begin formulating a synopsis of the next set of overall issues in your paper. The synopsis should be a maximum of 2 pages and should incorporate responses to the following:

Study: The antiretroviral therapy

  • Discuss the basic epidemiological concepts, methods, and applications of the study in general and those specific to the selected topic.
  • Describe the epidemiology of infection—occurrence, modes of transmission, common vehicles, and incubation period. Use the modes of transmission and incubation period for a disease to focus the search for the source of the outbreak or event described in the case study.
  • Describe the occurrence, signs and symptoms, and control of the agent, the infection, the disease, or the condition.

List the steps that might be used to investigate and address the disease or public health problem described in the assigned case.

Create your paper in a Microsoft Word document.

On a separate page, cite all sources using APA format.
