HCA 402 Grantham University Community Health Term Paper

HCA 402: Term Paper Guidelines
Healthcare is a multidisciplinary field, e.g., there are primary care physicians, specialists, nurses,
technicians, pharmacists, administrators, and others. They all work together as a single unit for
common goals…”safe and quality in patient care.”
Public health is no different. Public health is also a multidisciplinary field composed of
epidemiologists, environmentalists, biostatisticians, behavioral scientists, and/or health
educators. Public health also includes specialists in clinical research, chronic disease, infectious
disease, emergency medical services, food safety, global emergency preparedness, and
response professionals. Some public health specialists focus on health disparities,
international/global health, laboratory practices, maternal and child health concerns, women’s
health, mental health, nutrition/dietetics, occupational health and safety, and toxicology.
Finally, there are public health officials that focus on the economics or finance, of public health
and communities, in addition to public health laws and public health policies.
You Decide!
For your class term paper, choose a public health topic or public health profession that most
interests you. Research your topic and show how your topic or profession chosen is integrated
and/or has a positive effect on populations and community health. Example topics would be,
Environmental: Recycling Waste, or Chronic Disease: Risk Factors and Prevention, or
Biostatisticians’ Effect on Positive Social Change…or any other that relates to this class.
