Part 2: Evaluating and Selecting Appropriate Evidence
Locate five sources of evidence that discuss interventions for the public health problem you identified in PH4002. You can find scholarly articles in the Walden Library and find evidence housed within the Community Guide as a starting point for your search. You can also use one scholarly resource from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Institutes of Health, or other reputable health websites.
- Use APA style for your citations.
- For each of your sources, perform a systematic review: summarize the information, and describe the interventions and strategies used and the effectiveness of each strategy.
- Comment on the key characteristics of the evidence that would be appropriate for the population identified in your public health problem. Be sure to consider the social determinants of health, the cultural factors that apply, and any other specific observations regarding your population and community.
