I don’t understand this Nursing question and need help to study.

Infectious Disease Paper: SCABIES

I currently reside in FL

Purpose

Infectious disease occurs worldwide and must be addressed just as chronic disease is approached. This assignment will present the learner an opportunity to explore a communicable disease, to apply the epidemiological triad, and to discern the demographic and at-risk background data for a specific infectious disease agent.

  • Introduction: Analysis of the communicable disease (causes, symptoms, mode of transmission, complications, treatment) to include demographic break down that includes age, gender, race, or other at-risk indicators (data per demographics should include mortality, morbidity, incidence, and prevalence).
  • Determinants of Health: Define, identify and synthesize the determinants of health as related to the development of the infection. Utilize HP2020.
  • Epidemiological Triad: Identify and describe all elements of the epidemiological triad: Host factors, agent factors (presence or absence), and environmental factors. Utilize the demographic break down to further describe the triad. Writing includes examples that expand content beyond a definition into application. Full integration of evidence, sources.
  • Role of the NP: Succinctly define the role of the nurse practitioner according to a national nurse practitioner organization (National Board of Nursing or AANP, for example) and synthesize the role to the management of infectious diseases (surveillance, primary/secondary/tertiary interventions, reporting, data collecting, data analysis, and follow-up). This includes the integration of a model of practice which supports the implementation of an evidence-based practice. 

Submission Requirements

  • Length: The paper (excluding the title page and reference page) should be limited to a maximum of four (4) pages. Papers not adhering to the page length may be returned to you for editing to meet the length guidelines.
  • A minimum of three (3) scholarly research/literature references must be used. CDC or other web sources may be utilized but are not counted towards the three minimum references required. Your course text may be used as an additional resource but is not included in the three minimum scholarly references.
  • APA format current edition.
  • Include scholarly in-text references and a reference list.

Best Practices in Preparing the Project

The following are best practices in preparing this project:

  • Review directions and rubric thoroughly.
  • Follow submission requirements.
  • Make sure all elements on the grading rubric are included. Organize the paper using the rubric sections and appropriate headings to match the sections.
  • Rules of grammar, spelling, word usage, and punctuation are followed and consistent with formal, scientific writing.
  • Title page, running head, body of paper, and reference page must follow APA guidelines as found in the current edition of the manual. This includes the use of headings for each section of the paper except for the introduction where no heading is used.
  • Ideas and information that come from scholarly literature must be cited and referenced correctly.
  • A minimum of three (3) scholarly literature references must be used. **See above section on “Preparing the Paper”.
  • Abide by Chamberlain College of Nursing academic integrity policy.

This assignment will be run through Turn It In. Your second submission will be considered final and subject to grading.
