Assignment: Nursing Health Needs of Men Paper

Question Description
Due: Sunday night at 11:59pm Mountain Time

In this written assignment, you will explore the health needs of men or the elderly.

Step 1: Choose a health need to investigate.
From the following list, choose one health need to focus on for this assignment:

Health needs of men: prostate health, cardiovascular health, sexual dysfunction, alcohol abuse
Health needs of elderly: bone health, stroke care, cancer, social isolation
Step 2: Research the incidence and impact of this health need.
Research the incidence and impact of the problem among the specified population. Use at least three scholarly sources (that is, peer-reviewed journal articles or websites written by a group that has expertise and strong credentials in the field of interest). Make sure that you use APA format to properly cite sources used.

Step 3: Propose prevention strategies.
Propose two relevant population-based strategies at each level of prevention (primary, secondary, and tertiary).

Step 4: Summarize your findings and intervention proposals.
Write a three-four page paper that includes:

The incidence and impact of this health problem on the population
Two relevant population-based strategies at each level of prevention (for a total of six)
A hypothesis of which strategy would lead to the greatest impact on health outcomes for this population. Explan your answer and include evidence supporting your decision.
Step 5: Save and submit your assignment.
When you have completed your assignment, save a copy for yourself in an easily accessible place and submit a copy to your instructor.

Cite any sources in APA format.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
