MODULE 7 Informative and Persuasive Paper


The final project for NRSES 3700J is a paper of about 1500 words (approximately six [6] pages).
The paper is due in the last module of the course (Module 7). The paper has two purposes:

1. The first purpose is to inform the audience about a health issue that exists in the
country/community selected in Module 1 and reaffirmed in Module 3.

2. The second purpose is to persuade the audience that a specified intervention (or
interventions) would address the health issue in a positive way.


1. The paper is to be approximately six (6) pages in length excluding the title page and the
references cited page.

2. The chosen health issue is to be compared to a similar issue in the United States (US).
Use the following questions/topics to focus the paper.

2.1 Discuss the health issue in the selected country/community.

? What is it?
? Who is impacted?
? Why is the chosen health issue important?
? What are the consequences of not addressing the health issue?
? Identify the two (2) or three (3) social determinants of health that have the

most impact on the chosen health issue. Explain the influence.

2.2 Is the same health issue present in the US?

? Who does the health issue impact in the US?
? Compare the size of the health issue in the US with that in the selected

? What is similar about the health issue in the two countries?
? What is different about the health issue in the two countries?
? Identify the two (2) or three (3) social determinants of health that have an

impact on the chosen health issue in the US. Explain the influence of

? If the health issue does not exist in the US, explain the reasons for this
being so.

2.3 Identify an intervention (or interventions) that could address the identified health
issue. There is no specified number of interventions required, but if education is
chosen as an intervention it cannot be the only intervention.

? In what ways, if any, would the proposed interventions differ between the
selected country/community and the US?

? If the intervention in the two countries would not differ, explain why they
would not.

Module 7 Final Paper, continued

? Identify the connection between the social determinants of health, the
health issue, and the intervention(s).

? Persuade the audience that the identified intervention(s) would be useful in

intervention, but it can be used in combination with other interventions.

Each and every one of us struggles with writing at some time or another. Some of us have trouble writing a sympathy note. Others have trouble writing evaluation letters when we are in supervisory positions. Whatever our individual struggles are it is helpful to identify the specific struggles. We may not be able to turn the struggles into advantages but identifying them will let us know where we need to spend our energy. ?

This is the first of four discussion boards (DB) in the course. Each of the four DBs will have a specific focus and instructions. The format will remain the same. Each person will write about a specific topic and post it. Each person will then read the posts of two (2) peers and respond to them. ?More specific instructions for DB #1 follow.


For the initial post:

? Identify your three (3) biggest struggles/challenges with writing.

? Explain how these struggles have impacted your past experiences with writing.

? The length of this discussion is to be 250-300 words.

? You must post your initial post before you can read and respond to the posts of peer.

? To post the discussion board click on the ?Click to Launch? link OR on the on ?Discussions? tab in the menu bar on the left-hand side of the Blackboard screen. Post the material in the forum titled ?M1-A3 DB Writing Struggles.?

For the response post:

? Each student will read the information posted by peers and will write a response to two (2) peers. You?cannot?post a peer response on the same day that you posted your initial post.

? Identify an item in your peer’s post that is identical to or similar to one you identified for yourself. Respond to that item. Example: Is the struggle one you have you have dealt successfully with the issue in the past? Explain and offer suggestions.

? Each response to a peer is to contain a minimum of 100-150 words.

? A?minimum of one (1) reference?is required for each discussion response to a peer.

? Post in the forum titled “M1-A3 DB Writing Struggles.”
