Overview: Each student will write an epidemiologic review of an infectious disease of specific strain Escherichia coli serotype O157:H7. This paper will focus on the epidemiologic factors of the disease (distribution, temporality, risk factors etc. as described below) and not on the medical management, diagnosis, treatment or pathophisiology of the disease.
Length: Each paper will be 10 pages long, double-spaced in 12 point Times New Roman. References and figures/tables will not count toward the page total, and should be placed at the end of the paper (not within the body of the text).
Topic: Because you have to research the topics and describe the epidemiology of the disease, specific strain Escherichia coli serotype O157:H7.
References: Cite your information sources, and use credible scientific sources of information. I love Wikipedia too, but it is not a primary source of information for a written paper or publication.
Graphics: Include graphics as appropriate. You may create your own or use graphics and tables that are properly cited. Keep in mind that the graphics you find might not always match up with what you are saying, and that is something I tend to notice. For example, a 3D chart is rarely appropriate, and a #D pie chart is never appropriate.
Content: This is a public health paper, not a clinical one. Some clinical details might be relevant, but not to the level needed to treat a patient. For example, the name of the antibiotic commonly used to treat the disease is appropriate, the dosing schedule is not.
Each paper should at least cover the following items:
•A description of the clinical presentation of the disease
o Signs and symptoms
o Chronic infection/carriage (if appropriate)
•Relevant information about the causative agent:
o Incubation period
•The treatment of the disease (in a very general sense)
o Resistance (if appropriate)
o Other disease-specific information (for example an iron lung for polio cases)
•Prevention and control of the disease (as appropriate)
o Infection control
•Case definition and case classification (For this item, I do not expect you to paraphrase the case definition, but to include the actual case definition.)
•Major risk factors for the disease
•Epidemiology of the disease both in the US and internationally
o Geographic distribution
•Significant events in the history of the disease
