Task 1:

I need a short detail response answering the two Discussion Questions. Please include at least one Reference for both Questions. 

Discussion Question 2

As an healthcare manager, how might you use epidemiological data to analyze situations and/or change public health programs that you have established within your organization? What tools might you use to critically evaluate the research? And how might you present this information to stakeholders, executive leaders, and managers in your organization?

Discussion Question 3

The leading causes of death in the United States are heart disease, cancer, stroke, chronic lower respiratory disease, and accident (CDC). Research to explore the morbidity rates for each of these diseases in relation to the United States and globally. Please select a country of your choice and compare and contrast the epidemiology rates between the United States and your selected country. After completing the comparative analysis, what is your interference of your data? Using scholarly references include one intervention to change the status quo for two diseases.

 

Task 2:

I need 2-4 short sentences for the Responses below explaining if you agree or disagree with the following Responses that were answered to the Discussion Question above and why.

Response 1

Epidemiological data is a great tool that can be used by a health care manager to analyze situations and or change public health programs that have been established in an organization for which they work. Epidemiological data can help identify the cause of a disease and its risk factors. Epidemiological tools can assist with measuring the burden of disease within a given population determine the differences in the burden of disease between populations, explore the origins or cause of differences in disease burdens and also determine the effect of treatments and interventions on reducing the burden of disease (Fleming, 2008, p.3 ). There are several methods of epidemiological research such as case control studies, cohort studies and randomized clinical trials. Each method allows the research to compare different variables and make conclusions based on the research in order to better assess a disease and the population that it effects. The results from studies help with disease prevention as well as treatments for diseases. In order to present information found in any study a researcher can use a simple regression and or a linear correlation in order to provide visual aid for the factors that may contribute to disease prevalence in a given population. A health care manager would then use his or her findings to support the need for preventative care in at risk populations such as programs that help educate about good health care coverage and quality of care that people should seek to ensure healthy lives. This could also help determine what treatments work for certain diseases and also show the demand for certain medications within a certain population. Research would show what age, gender, race, etc. are more at risk for a disease within a given population.

Response 2

Different countries have many different leading causes of death. All these causes can be discovered and researched with the many epidemiology tools that are available now. As stated with the CDC in the United States the top causes of mortality are heart disease, cancer, stroke, chronic respiratory disease and accidents in that order. With the top 3 causes of death alone, they cover more than half of the overall causes of death in the United States (Gorina & et la, 2005). It is about 61% caused by heart disease, cancer and stroke, the other 40% is caused by respiratory disease and accidents (Gorina & et al, 2005). All of these rates are reached because of all the different estimates and comparisons has been done to study the different diseases and causes. A country of choice to compare the mortality rates is China. Although they have the same top 5 diseases that cause mortality in their population the rank varies from the one of the United States. The leading cause of death in China is stroke just alone at 32%, cancer and heart disease follow, the same as in the United States as top 3 causes (China Vs US, 2013). In China the first cause is Stroke, then respiratory lung disease, and lastly heart disease (China Vs US, 2013).

These ranks and statistics vary for many different reasons. In my opinion many of those vary from China to the United States because of the preventative measures. The United States in the last few years has put great emphasis on preventative care, and even just regular checkups. All of that together help to protect the patients from any abnormalities in their normal health. In China I think the environment has a lot to do with their population and their health. There are high numbers of population and smog that affect greatly. Just with the smog alone has a great affect on their lungs, to the point where special masks have to be worn at certain times, since it becomes so difficult to breath. If more preventative care was given in China and there was a way to have less smog, I believe there will be more of a similarity in the causes of death with the unites States.
