Write a 1,500–2,000-word paper discussing the role of descriptive epidemiology in nursing science. Include the following:

  1. Explain the concept of descriptive epidemiology using either a
    theoretical or conceptual understanding of a specific condition to
    identify patterns (e.g., distribution of data, data collection,
    condition or distribution of the data, and determinants in the
    relationship to disease populations).
  2. Provide a contemporary example of how descriptive epidemiology is applied in public health nursing.
  3. Define health disparity and how it occurs, and what factors contribute to it in an at-risk population.
  4. Considering the population with Lack of education or poor literacy
    as an at-risk population. Provide biostatistical, epidemiological, or
    environmental data to substantiate why this population is at risk.
    Consult the “Data and Statistics” and Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) pages on the CDC website for current information on population health.  
  5. Using analyzed population data, identify a health risk within your
    selected at-risk population that nursing science can impact. Describe
    specific variables that the data are measuring and explain how the
    variables correlate the at-risk population to the identified health
  6. Identify potential barriers that may hinder the implementation of
    disease-prevention and health-promotion activities. Explain why these
    barriers may slow or impede strategies to reduce the effects of the
    health risk on the at-risk population.
  7. Identify stakeholders and agencies with whom you may need to
    collaborate to implement health risk reduction strategies. Explain why
    you selected these collaborators and how they will contribute to your
    disease prevention and health promotion plan.
