Population of interest: African America males 18years or older living with depression in New Castle

population health report and need a sample draft to help me learn.

Include the following three parts in the paper (Total 7 pages). Grading Rubrics can be seen below.
Part A (2 pages): Identify a population for study (e.g. impoverished children, elders living at home, young adults with Type 1 diabetes, Latino migrant women of child-bearing age) that you will focus on for the four papers. Using one of the conceptual or theoretical models identified in your readings, discuss the health risks for this population and the factors that increase or decrease risk for this population. From these, select a specific health problem (e.g., falls in the elderly living at home, perinatal health problems for Latino migrant women) and discuss how you would identify cases especially at risk.
Part B (2 pages): Describe a typical community where your population resides (e.g. Latino women of child-bearing age might be found in Wilmington or in Sussex counties). Using census.govLinks to an external site., the HRSA data warehouseLinks to an external site. or other publically available data bases, describe the general health context in the community (e.g., health care facilities that provide services for your population and their health need), level of population, racial and ethnic make-up—use whatever descriptors that will convey the opportunities and challenges your population might have in accessing population sensitive and problem specific health care in that community. In this paper also describe the specific demographics for the population you have selected (e.g., % people over 65) and the extent to which the specific health problem you have selected exists within that community. Finally describe the extent to which the built environment within the domicile and/or community increases or decreases the risk for the population you have selected.
Part C (3 pages): Select at least 2 metrics that you would use to assess health outcomes pertaining to your population. At least one of these metrics must address the specific health problem that you have focused on. Describe how you would collect this information, and how often you would measure it. For each outcome indicator determine what change you would expect that would reflect a positive and a negative health change. Discuss how often the heath outcome indicator would need to be monitored to capture positive and negative changes in the indicator. Using the information from the previous two papers, describe potential individual and community level changes could be enacted to improve health in your population and for the specific health problem you are measuring

The Basics: How to Write an Introduction Section
Revised from , Health Communication Research Laboratory’s Manuscript Development Seminar Series
I. What general public health problem will the paper address and why is it important? (1st two paragraphs of Introduction)
A. Clearly identify the general public health problem area. (2-4 sentences)
1. Define the problem (i.e., with a conceptual definition used within the field).
2. Describe the magnitude of the problem using current, official numbers.
B. Explain why the problem is important. (2-4 sentences)
1. What are the public health consequences of the problem? Include physical, mental/emotional, social, economic, and political consequences.
2. What is the current state of the problem? What are the trends over time?
3. Who says it is important? (National objectives, landmark published studies, professional associations?)
II. What specific issue within the general public health problem area will be addressed, and why is it important?
A. Clearly identify the specific issue.
1. What specific group and health issue will your paper address?
2. Use standard terminology used in field.
B. Explain why this specific issue is important.
1. How is the specific issue related to the larger general problem area?
2. How does the specific issue influence the larger problem?
3. What are the consequences of the specific issue?
4. Who says the specific issue is important?
III. What is known about the specific issue from past research, what is not known, and why it is important to fill this gap? (2-4 paragraphs)
A. What is known from past research investigating this specific issue? (1-2 paragraphs)
1. Briefly summarize past research. (Use published work from 2010-current, unless need to report a landmark study in the field or a study that published a measure/items you are using in your study)
a. What are the main findings? (NOTE: Do not summarize study after study. From reading a few studies, summarize major findings and cite the studies after these sentences.)
b. How much is known? A lot? Little?
c. How consistent are findings across studies?
B. What gaps exist in our understanding of the specific issue? (1-2 paragraphs)
1. State clearly what is not known that will be addressed in your paper
2. Gaps may include: evidence/knowledge, methodological rigor, or generalizability to other populations/settings
3. Why is it important to fill this gap? What will be gained by acquiring this new knowledge to fill the gap? How will it improve our understanding or what new directions may it lead us to?
IV. What research question(s) will your project address, and what important contributions will it make to science, public health practice, or policy? (Last paragraph of Intro)
A. State the research question(s) clearly. (1-2 sentences)
1. “The purpose of this project is to…” (The research question(s) should directly follow from the identification of gaps in the literature.)
2. Include a descriptive question (how many, % of people responding, % of people with disease, etc; these questions can often be answered with frequencies and cross-tabs) and two relational questions/hypotheses (e.g., what is the relationship between two variables)
Example of descriptive question:
a. What frequency of adults age 50 and over have been diagnosed with hypertension?
Example of relational question:
b. What is the relationship between the number of primary care visits per year and adherence drug therapy?
B. How does the study relate to previous research? (1-2 sentences)
1. Examples: “This study builds upon previous work by…,” “This study fulfills a gap in work done by…,” “This study replicates the work of…”
C. Describe how findings from your study may influence future research, practice, or policy efforts. (1-2 sentences)
The Basics: How to Write a Results Section
Revised from , Health Communication Research Laboratory’s Manuscript Development Seminar Series
Overview:
The purpose of this section is to REPORT THE RESULTS. A results section does NOT interpret results.
I. Description of the Participants (1 paragraph)
Report demographic characteristic breakdown of participants
“Table 1 summarizes the characteristics of the overall sample. Participants had a mean age of 35.6 years (range 18-65). Most were aged 18-25 (67%), female (88%), and were currently enrolled in college (54%).”
NOTE: You will be expected to place your demographic characteristic breakdown in a table. The in-text write-up will only summarize table highlights – do not reiterate the number and percent for each variable’s categories. Also always reference the table number in the first sentence of your in-text write-up.
“Table 2 displays the frequency of self-reported driving distractions by gender (male versus female). In particular, 40% of females versus 80% of males reported having used a cell phone while driving in the last 6 months.”

TABLE TEMPLATES:
Table 1. Demographic Characteristics of 60 Adults Aged 20-50 Years (April 2016)
Table 2. Descriptive Characteristics of Main Variables of Interest for 60 Adults Aged 20-50 Years (April 2016)
a Measured on a scale from 1 (Excellent Health) to 4 (Poor Health)
NOTE: If you have more than two ordinal variables to report in a table, I recommend that you actually compute the Mean and Standard Deviation instead of the Number and Percent for each category. The rationale is to condense your table into a reader-friendly table format. Like the General Health variable in the 2nd table template above, you must refer the reader to a table subscript and let them know what the scale is (ESPECIALLY if the variables have different scales!!)
