Project Guidelines Purpose The purpose of this assignment is to provide learners the opportunity to: a) analyze the epidemiology of the community, extrapolate healthcare priorities and plan a project to improve healthcare outcomes of the chosen community, b) design a population- focused project to decrease chronic disease and improve population health with measurable outcomes for evaluation purposes, c) develop interventional strategies based on primary, secondary, and tertiary levels of prevention, and e) integrate the project with the national goals and objectives of Healthy People 2020. Course Outcomes This assignment enables the student to meet the following course outcomes: (CO#1) Synthesize knowledge and concepts from advanced practice nursing with supporting disciplines as a foundation for specialty nurse practitioner practice that is culturally competent and population-specific. (PO 7) (CO#2) Advocate and negotiate for advanced practice policy to meet the healthcare needs of a culturally diverse society in a changing healthcare environment. (PO 10) (CO#3) Contribute to the body of advanced practice nursing knowledge through participation in systematic inquiry, utilization of evidence-based practice, and dissemination of findings to support high-quality care and healthcare innovation. (PO 9) (CO#4) Distinguish population-specific skills, understandings, and integrative abilities for genomic and primary healthcare screening of selected aggregate populations. (PO 11) (CO#5) Analyze community resources related to abnormal screening results in selected aggregate populations. (PO 2) (CO#6) Assess diverse populations within a community to ascertain health behaviors, interventions, and resources that affect health promotion and maintenance of selected aggregate populations. (PO 1) (CO#7) Detail graphs and numerical summaries as descriptive statistical aids in determining a course of action relative to selected aggregate populations. (PO 7) (CO#11) Generate hypotheses, equate appropriate statistical tests, assess the validity of the tests, and use test results to decide on a course of action relative to selected aggregate populations. (PO 7) DUE DATE Submit to the Dropbox by Sunday 11:59 p.m. MT at the end of Week 4 Total Points Possible: 350 points Requirements Assignment Criteria for the Paper: 1.
