Role of Prevention in Health Status
This week we read about the role that prevention plays in the health of a population. Reflecting on the reading, discuss the following questions about preventative services:
a. Is an ounce of prevention still worth a pound of cure in the United States? If not, what is the relative value of prevention, in comparison to treatment?
b. What role, if any, has the recent growth of managed care strategies played within the health sector played?
c. Discuss the relationship between preventative intervention strategies and intervention strategies aimed at health or illness.
Your initial post should be a minimum of 250-300 words and utilize at least two scholarly sources, cited in APA format.
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
