Critically examine the impact of one determinant of health on the given scenario from your field of nursing practice.
We will be talking about (Age) as a determinant of health and relating it to the case study therefore the essay must be related to the case study when the discussion is done.
Your assignment will focus on one determinant of health and will critically explore this determinant in terms of the individual, as well as the wider socio-political and economic context. Current evidence and policies in relation to the social determinant and its potential impact or relationship to the individual in the case study should be utilised to support this work.
In examining and selecting one determinant of health you may consider any of the following: the individual, their biopsychosocial factors and any associated lifestyle factors, the broader community provision and social networks surrounding that individual; their living and working conditions and the wider socio-political, economic and cultural contexts.
The current context of health and healthcare provision in the United Kingdom and how this might impact on the individual should also be considered.
Critique evidence from a range of sources for example, NICE, the Department of Health, Public Health England, the King’s Fund, World Health Organisation and other peer reviewed sources and publications.
Demonstrate use of empirical research literature that informs your understanding and analysis of the context of this determinant of health
Overall the discussion should give a logical and coherent argument of the key issues and demonstrate an understanding of the factors that impact on health and illness.
Use appropriate language for academic writing, which is structured, measured and precise.
Demonstrate competence across the learning outcomes for the module.
Check that the cited references and bibliography are presented in a consistent and acceptable format that conforms to HSK referencing guidelines.
The assignment should be written in third person
The way in which an assignment is organised may vary from one student to the next. However, in all cases, the organisation should be logical. It should begin with a clear identification of what is to be studied and how that will be achieved and should be ended with a summary or conclusion.
