Breast Cancer In Malta

Breast Cancer In Malta
Paper details

Assignment:
Prepare a status report on the local burden of non-communicable disease of your choice. Such a status report should include not only measures of disease frequency available but also figures showing associations with risk factors for the condition in question and also complication rates and the mortality burden, if relevant, with a focus on differences by gender, age, social class.
In not more than 1000 words prepare a plan for such a status report, identifying at least five sources of data you could possibly use, which may include existing publications, international databases, registers and survey datasets. Appraise each source, identifying which of the elements above can be examined using the said data source, and justify your choice for these sources over others.
——————————————–
Important:
My assignment is to “prepare a PLAN of a status report”.
The idea is to compare and contrast different sources of data (international databases, registers, survey datasets, etc.) to compile the information for the status report.
The plan must take into consideration the basic epidemiological parameters such as: measures of a disease frequency (prevalence, incidence), measures of mortality, RFI, complication rates, mortality burden (age, gender, social class,etc.), etc..

Basically, I am not interested to see actual facts e.g. ''The incidence of ChristmasLog Disease in Malta is 1 in 1000''. Rather I want something like ''In view of a status report, as per the incidence of ChristmasLog Disease, source A would be the most ideal to consider over the other sources seeing as the sample population considered by source A is greater and hence more accurately representative''.

You have a friend who is a naïve realist: she believes that the relationship between our perception and the physical world is simple. Write an argument in which you convince her that this relationship is more complicated than she thinks.

You need to answer three of the following four questions.  The answers should be 2 pages long. 


1. You have a friend who is a naïve realist: she believes that the relationship between our perception and the physical world is simple.  Write an argument in which you convince her that this relationship is more complicated than she thinks.

2.  Describe three ways that the senses of hearing, vision, and touch are similar to each other. Describe two ways they are different. How are these similarities and difference related to the types of problems that each sensory modalities attempts to solve?

3. Discuss the following conceptual problem:  our perception of visual space seems to be an undivided whole (that is, we see a world composed of objects that have color and textures, and these objects exist in a coherent 3-dimensional space), but the brain seems to be divided into “parallel pathways” with “modular organization.” In your answer define what is meant by terms “modular organization” and parallel pathways, and discuss the effects of some forms of brain damage (or brain surgery) on perception.

4. Throughout the semester we have made a distinction between the physical stimulus, our physiology, and our perception.   Describe one or two phenomena from this framework (by “phenomena” I am referring to an illusion, a set of data, or a neurological disorder).  How are explanations based on our perception related to explanations based on our physiology?

Research and identify possible legal challenges to your proposed bill by researching federal court decisions
Research and identify possible legal challenges to your proposed bill by researching federal court decisions. You can use one of the following legal research sites:

1. Lexis/Nexis (This can be accessed through the APUS Online Library. Please see the instructional guide for LexisNexis in our Course Materials. The APUS Online Library offers tutorials for using Lexis/Nexis, in the event that you are not familiar with how to use it.)

2. LLRX.com: Law and Technology Resources for Legal Professionals.

3. Findlaw.com

Summarize your findings. Be sure to identify the title (case name), court, docket number, and date of any relevant decisions. Unless you have experience conducting legal research, this assignment will take a lot longer than you would anticipate, so begin early in the week. It takes quite a bit of time to weed through the potential “hits” and learn how to refine and narrow your searches. Your assignment submission should be at least 250 words long, and longer as necessary.

Please reference the Rubric in the Resources section.

DISCLAIMER: Originality of attachments will be verified by Turnitin. Both you and your instructor will receive the results.

Asthma
Paper details

Prepare a status report on the local burden of non-communicable disease “Asthma”. Such a status report should include not only measures of disease frequency available but also figures showing associations with risk factors for the condition in question and also complication rates and the mortality burden, if relevant, with a focus on differences by gender, age, social class.
In not more than 1000 words PREPARE A PLAN for such a status report, identifying at least five sources of data you could possibly use, which may include existing publications, international databases, registers and survey datasets. Appraise each source, identifying which of the elements above can be examined using the said data source, and justify your choice for these sources over others.
**In other words, you have been asked to DESCRIBE how you would prepare for such a status report and NOT the status report itself. Please note that you are expected to show some familiarity with existing data sources as listed in the assignment description. You have been exposed to the epidemiological registers and the data sources – particularly those currently housed at DHIR (http://tiny.cc/dhirmalta). You have also been informed about international data sources such as the Health for All database (http://data.euro.who.int/hfadb/) and the Eurostat Statistics Database (http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/data/database) amongst others, together with academic publications.
You have not been asked for any statistics on the disease of choice. Therefore, NO requests for data or information from DHIR will be considered for the purpose of this assignment. (REALLY IMPORTANT)
You are kindly requested to consult the above online resources and others to understand better what the different registers and data sources offer, so that you may have a go at which data sources you would use for the compilation of the report. Any stats reported in your report should be purely for illustrative purposes, and has to be taken directly from the online source.
Once again, your deliverable is not the status report itself, but the plan of which data sources to be used for such a status report.
