Epidemiology and statistics | Nursing homework help

 

Introduction and Alignment

Lest you be left with the impression, after the previous two exercises, that you are learning a skill set you will never use, you are challenged in this exercise to write about how you would respond if an unexpected outbreak of disease or other health condition were to unexpectedly occur in the kind of workplace where you serve or expect to serve after earning your master’s degree.  You are expected to apply the principles learned in the previous exercise, and to avoid errors of interpretation of information in the setting you are describing.

Upon completion of this assignment, you should be able to:

  • Avoid five of the most common methodologic errors and biases that would invalidate an epidemiologic study or investigation.
  • Apply epidemiologic skills in your chosen area of specialization in the nursing profession.
