Discussion—Strength and Weakness of the EBPH in Defining a Public Health Problem

Based on the readings assigned and suggested for this week and a review of the seven-stage, sequential framework to promote greater use of EBPH, do the following:

The application of evidence-based principles to a public health issue demands a scientific quantification of said public health issue. An integral component of the community assessment should include the targeted health condition or risk factor being considered, the population affected, the size and scope of the problem, prevention opportunities, and potential stakeholders. To aid in this task, epidemiology and the US surveillance system are applied to track and obtain necessary information about the frequency of the health condition or risk factor in an affected population.

Although data from surveillance systems can be used to obtain baseline and follow-up measurements for target populations, there may be limitations when using the data to evaluate intervention effectiveness for narrowly defined populations. In such a case, it may be necessary to estimate the frequency of disease or other health condition for the target population by using special surveys or appropriate study designs. Understanding the tradeoffs of various study designs will improve how you evaluate the effects of various public health programs and policies.

Review the study designs from the readings assigned and suggested for this week and present a brief summary of the appropriateness and advantages of using each study design as part of your effort to quantify the public health issue that you identified in Week 1 as part of your community assessment.

Write your initial response in approximately 300 words.

By the due date assigned, post your response to the appropriate Discussion Area. Through the end of the week, review and comment on at least two peers’ responses. Consider commenting on their stated advantages of using a specific study design. Do you agree or disagree with their stated advantages and why?

Support your answers with examples and research. Your responses should clarify your understanding of the topic. They should be your own, original, and free from plagiarism. Follow the APA format for writing style, spelling and grammar, and citation of sources.

Evaluation Criteria:

  • Summarized the appropriateness and advantages of using each study design as part of the effort to quantify a public health issue as part of the community assessment.
  • Responses demonstrated in-depth research and analysis.
  • Justified your answers with appropriate research and reasoning.
  • Commented on the postings of at least two peers.

    This week you will study the strengths and weaknesses of evidence based public health practice. Take your time to study the advantages and some of the weaknesses, and how they can be improved. Make sure you post on day 1 of each week and respond to inquiries from classmates and me, as well. It is a discussion platform, and  part of your assessment and grade.
    Best wishes.
