In this part of this assignment I am going to critically analyse an article by evaluating the relevance of the findings from the research. The article is “A Qualitative study investigating patients’ beliefs about cardiac rehabilitation.” I am going to use the Critical Appraisal Skills Programme (CASP) to aid my critique. The CASP tool systematically explores the research to judge its value, relevance and trustworthiness. My evaluation on this evidence is that it has many good points and many bad points. I am going to focus on some of the good and bad points by critically appraising this article.
Take for example, often times a group or subjects are chosen for a number of characteristics of the subject are measured and recorded to collect data such as weight, blood pressure, diet, and smoking habits. The subjects are then followed up in time to see if there has been an occurrence of a disease. This course did a great job with breaking down the different age group and ethnicities for different diseases and how it affects the body. The course did changes my views on how we act as a community and making sure the people who have been diagnosed with most of these diseases have the resources they need or able to get the what they need. It is up to the state to follow up on their part to get the information out there and letting the people know that it is available.
TRADITIONAL AND SYNDROMIC SURVEILLANCE WALDEN UNIVERSITY HEALTH INFORMATICS AND SURVEILLANCE INSTRUCTOR GERMAN GONZALEZ MARCH 23, 2013 Week 3 Application for Surveillance There has been a need to increase and develop upon the traditional disease surveillance techniques for public health surveillance in the last decade. After the outbreak of anthrax in America in 2001, public health has been looking for ways to improve the methods for detecting the emergence of infectious diseases that affect the public as a result of biological agents ("Syndromic surveillance (ss)," 2013). Syndromic surveillance is a systematic method of data collection and examination for the purpose of detection, identification, and characterization of disease outbreaks in humans as well as animals in a timely manner (CDC, 2004). Syndromic surveillance tries to integrate a variety of data, especially from clinical settings, and other sources in the local communities including providing and supporting decision making in the incident of emergence of disease instead of relying strictly on a definite report of conditions or disease occurrence or incidence (Ritzwoller, Kleinman, Palen, Abrams, Kaferly, Yih & Platt, 2005). Syndromic surveillance is a vital tool utilized by local, stat, as well as federal governmental public health agencies to increase the effectiveness of detecting and controlling the outbreak of disease.
Even those who view the inherent inequalities of the American system, however, and argue that minorities are in some need of institutionalized help to overcome systemic problems also see the policies Affirmative Action as more of a hindrance than a help.

1.2 Explain how effective communication affects all aspects of own work Effective communication affects all aspects of my work. If I am not communicating effectively with the individuals that I support, it may lead to a poor therapeutic relationship. This means that if I need the individual to undertake certain tasks, if the communication is poor, they may not understand what I am asking of them. This in turn my lead to tasks not being undertaken that are for their general health and well-being. This means that they may end up unwell.
We decided that (RED) should have a criteria model based on three key components: selecting companies that can create strong associations with consumers in urging them to have knowledge about the HIV/AIDs pandemic, searching for companies who are seen as open-minded and concerned for global-related matters, and seek companies that continually provide new products and services. In creating a strong association, partnering with a condom company may enforce not only the knowledge of common STDs but also of HIV/AIDs and the importance of protecting themselves and knowing the risks.

Leah McMillan ENGL 1120 Rhetorical Analysis of a Published Argument 3 February 2012 The National Security Implications of HIV/AIDS In Harley Feldbaum’s essay “The National Security Implications of HIV/AIDS”, he compares the perspective on the linkage between public health and national security. The pattern of organization in this argument is mainly a defense of the main idea—that infectious diseases threaten American national security. Whether it may be in America or abroad, the HIV/AIDS pandemic has affected millions of people. Although Feldbaum effectively negotiates that this nexus of society needs to have a better understanding of the public health and HIV/AIDS, the reader gets a more detailed understanding of how global health does not fit easily into the state-centered perspective of national security. Despite that fact that Feldbaum successfully makes his claim that the risks and benefits of addressing HIV/AIDS as a national security issue can cause serious benefits and dangers, he must also refute the opposing view—that stating these issues openly will benefit the progression of medications for the unhealthy.
This includes actions to take following an incident, who to contact and how soon to respond. The Tylenol Murders case study is an excellent look at how public relations can influence opinions. This paper will review the case study and evaluate the effectiveness of the communication between the Tylenol Company and the public. The paper will identify the different publics involved both internal and external, the impact the communication had on the public and if the message could have been developed more effectively. The paper will also identify the different PR communication tools and techniques used, the risks associated with those tools and identify other available tools.
Dependence-Development engrains in us responsibility based on self-direction and independence of adulthood. Although, if the individual does not make this leap it may lead to a lack of self-direction, self-control, and self-responsibility. 6.
