Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Population-Specific Paper

This paper was to be developed throughout the first six to nine weeks of the course, with an opportunity to submit a rough draft for feedback during Week 6 and your final submission due this week, in Week 10. The goal of this assignment is twofold: 1) for you to demonstrate an understanding of the key concepts of health promotion and disease prevention as related to the role of the APRN while applying this information to a specific vulnerable population; and 2) for you to have an opportunity to develop your writing and APA formatting skills through faculty feedback and the utilization of various tools here at Regis (that is, Regis Library and staff, SmartThinking, Pearson Writing Center, etc.).

The faculty at Regis want you to be successful. Being able to present not only your thoughts but evidence-based practice information in a concise, systematic, and clear manner will be a talent that serves you well.
