Week 7 Assignment – Managing an Outbreak
In this assignment, you will be tasked with developing a data-driven plan to improve patient outcomes from a transmissible disease outbreak scenario in a typical health care facility.
To complete this assignment, remember to reference the resources you found in your Week 6 activity. In addition, you may also use the Internet and Strayer databases as well as refer to your readings in the textbooks.Write a 5–6 page paper in which you do the following:
- Evaluate three possible epidemiological approaches you might utilize to manage the chosen outbreak.
- Be sure to compare and contrast your chosen approaches.
- Recommend at least six steps in a plan that may be presented to an audience of interest to prevent the proliferation of this particular disease.
- Be sure to include support for recommendations.
