The Community Action Plan

 

Portfolio Project Option #1: The Community Action Plan: Written Report and Slide Presentation

Your Portfolio Project for this class is a community action plan designed to alleviate or correct a public-health issue in your community. Your community can be your business, school, neighborhood, town or city of residence or birth, or county.

For Option 1, your community action plan will be a professional portfolio that includes a written report and a slide presentation.

Below are some useful sites where you can find examples of the elements of an action plan.

You will incorporate into this final plan any classmates’ critiques that you found useful as well as your instructor’s feedback.

  1. The written report should include:
  • The final case study, with four sections (Symptoms, Diagnosis, Cure, and Prevention). Each section should be about a page in length. Your entire paper must be 4-5 pages in length not counting the title or reference pages, which you must include. APA format
  • You must back up your sections using at least two scholarly articles. You may use readings other than the textbook to meet this requirement.
  • The key community members or partners that you plan on contacting, with an explanation why these individuals or organizations make sense as potential partners. This could include your list of potential partners created in the Week 4 Critical Thinking Assignment Option #1, or your interview of one key partner completed in the Week 4 Critical Thinking Assignment Option #2.
  • A special emphasis on either the demographics of the affected population or the economic implications, depending on what Critical Thinking Assignment you completed for Week 5.
  • A realistic timeline for your plan. Discuss the time needed for campaigning, education, funding, building, and implementation. Use ideas created during Week 6 Critical Thinking Assignments, either the option for an annotated bibliography or that for the brainstorming draft feedback.
  1. The slide presentation describes the problem in your community and your action plan.
  • Your presentation must be 8-10 slides in length, not counting the title and reference slides.
  • You may use a Web-based slide presentation software such as Prezi, for example, or you may use PowerPoint. If you use a Web-based tool, include the URL to your presentation in a Word document and upload it with your presentation.
  • The audience for this presentation will be community members or organizations you wish to educate about the public-health issue and your proposed plan. The purpose of this slide presentation is to educate the audience about the issue. Keep in mind that in real life you will have limited time to convince people of the gravity of the situation and to come on board with their support, so you want to be persuasive and get to the key points quickly and effectively.There is  a sample Power Point attached.

Clinical Trial

Clinical Trial

 click here for more information on this paper

Between 2004 and 2007, the National Institutes of Health conducted a STEP vaccine clinical trial—Phase IIB “test-of-concept” study.

The STEP study is the name of a clinical trial to test an experimental human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) vaccine. The STEP study enrolled 3,000 participants at sites in Australia, Brazil, Canada, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Jamaica, Peru, Puerto Rico, and the United States. The study was designed to test an HIV vaccine, which aimed to stimulate production of immune system T-cells that can kill HIV-infected cells.

Based on its first evaluation of vaccine efficacy, the findings showed there were 24 cases of HIV infection among the 741 volunteers who received at least one dose of the investigational vaccine compared with 21 cases of HIV infection among the 762 volunteers who were vaccinated with the placebo. In volunteers who received at least two vaccinations, there were 19 cases of HIV infection among the 672 volunteers who received the investigational vaccine and 11 instances of HIV infection among the 691 volunteers who received placebo. The study investigators of the vaccine trials have decided to cease immunizations and are contacting study volunteers to inform them of the developments.

Diseases: Immunizations are discontinued in two HIV vaccine trials.

Using the South University Online Library or the Internet, research further on STEP study and STEP vaccine clinical trials and its parameters.

Based on your research, understanding, and above information, answer the following questions:

  • Prior to beginning this study, how would you have described the risks and benefits of the study to participants?
  • What are the ethical issues surrounding this study at the beginning and when the decision was made to terminate the study?
