BSN 4010 Assessment 3
Your team has presented its preliminary findings to the
executive leadership in your organization, but leadership has some doubts about
some of the information they received. Each member of the team has been charged
with doing a critical examination of recent research around each member’s area
of expertise. As the team’s nursing representative, you need to look
specifically at the health care concerns identified in the Windshield Survey
The first step in preparing to write a review of the
research is to define your topic. For this assessment, your review will provide
a comprehensive overview of the needs of the population you identified in the
Windshield Survey assessment in terms of health promotion and disease
prevention, the factors that contribute to health disparities for the
population, and the need for the organization to improve health care delivery
to the population.
In the Capella library, search for current scholarly or
peer-reviewed professional research articles that:
Examine the health care risks and needs of your population.
Analyze the need to improve health care delivery to the
Evaluate, critically, the factors that affect health
promotion and disease prevention for the population.

Locate at least 5–7 resources so that you can eliminate 2–3
if necessary. You may discover, for example, as you read each article more
in-depth, that they may not all have the focus you need for your review.
For this assessment, you need to develop several points
around which to apply the research from the articles you located. Specifically,
you need to:
Compare statistics for the primary health concern of your
population to the rest of the general population in the United States. This
would include frequency of occurrence, age groups most at risk, frequency of
fatality, and so on.
Describe the epidemiological concepts, data analysis
methods, tools, and databases used in the research studies you located. Address
any flaws or biases you believe are present.
Explain the factors that affect health promotion and disease
prevention for the population. (Hint: These may be things such as language
barriers, cultural values, generational differences, social fear, and access to
Describe the types of health care initiatives that have been
tried by other organizations specifically for the primary health care concern
or the population.
Recommend one health care initiative for your population,
based on your research,
These should be the ideas, or points, that your review is
based on. For each point, present all of the evidence you located. For this
assessment, that should be at least four current research articles, although
not all of the articles will typically offer evidence on all of your points.
Be sure your assessment includes:
An introduction that presents the points you will cover.
The body that presents the research on the points.
A conclusion that restates the points in your introduction.
Your assessment should be 4–5 pages in length, not including
the title page and reference page. Be sure you follow APA guidelines for style
