Your Practicum and Evidence-Based Interventions
Over the past decade, research has identified evidence-based programs, strategies, and interventions that are useful in attaining community health goals and improving overall health outcomes for a population. Such examples include safety belt use, physical activity, improved nutrition education, and safe sex practices. Think about evidence-based interventions you have studied or seen through your practicum experience or professional practice:
Where do you see a gap in evidence-based interventions in a specific population? Provide and cite evidence to show that this gap exists.
Cite literature that explains the social injustice or existing systems that cause or maintain this gap.
How could existing systems be changed, or which system could be developed to support a change to close this gap? How might you address it? Provide and cite evidence to show that your suggested approach could be successful in addressing the gap.
What potential problems do you see with your suggested approach? What additional information would you need to answer this question more thoroughly?
