Frameworks and Models in Epidemiology

The chronic health condition I encounter in my practice is cancer. Cancer is a disease in which some of the body’s cells develop irrepressibly and spread to other parts. This condition can begin almost anywhere in the human body consisting of uncountable cells (Kaiser 2021). It is characterized by fatigue or risky tiredness that does not get better with resting. Loss or gaining weight of 10 pounds or more for an unknown reason, eating issues like not feeling hungry, difficulty swallowing, pain in the belly, or vomiting and nausea. Cancer can be caused by tobacco and smoking, diet and physical activity, sun and other forms of radiation and viruses, plus other infections. The cancer situation can be demonstrated via an advanced epidemiological triangle (Christine 2017).


Contributing Factor EBP intervention Supporting evidence
Using tobacco. 


Behavioral therapy A larger body of scientific works supports behavioral therapy to help individuals quit smoking (National Center for Biotechnology Information n.d.).  Such methods may be delivered through numerous forms of health care providers to individuals. Behavioral therapy that’s commonly applied with the smokers expecting to quit pursues to address the historical learning procedures directly appropriate to the smoking and existing related factors that make it hard to quit. Accessible evidence supports the efficiency of both the brief cessation involvements and long, more rigorous interventions. Both minimal and intensive involvements delivered by the care professionals are increasing the proportion of adults who effectively stop smoking and continue abstaining for six months, referred to as recent effective cessation. Also, there’s a dose-response connection between the strength of counseling and quitting success; that’s, the greater strength of counseling, the high the probability an individual may quit. Therefore, behavioral therapy methods are delivered over numerous weeks and emphasize physiological, social, psychological, and environmental features of smoking and nicotine dependence.
Obesity Exercise As an evidence-based intervention for cancer patients in relation to Obesity, exercise has been defined as a structured physical activity that encompasses repetitive body movement to maintain cardiorespiratory endurance, muscular strength, endurance, flexibility, or body composition (D’Ascenzi et al. 2021). The exercise here has many benefits, including lowering the chance of having physical side effects like fatigue, lymphedema, neuropathy, osteoporosis, and nausea. Exercise also reduces the risk of anxiety and depression, keeps an individual as mobile and autonomous as possible, improve the balance to cut fall injuries, and prevents muscle loss, building strength. As an evidence-based practice, exercise in cancer patients has been revealed to prevent Obesity and weight gain linked to increased cancer danger, improves sleep, reduces the amount of time required to stay in the hospital, makes the treatment more active at destroying the tumor cells, improves the rates of survival for particular cancers like breast cancer, prevents other lasting illnesses, like diabetes and heart disease and finally improves life quality.
