Rationale for the health issue – 2 pages

behavior (include at least 5 references)
● Use epidemiological data or other statistical information on incidence and prevalence
● Discuss the consequences (e.g., physical, mental, economic), impact, and behavioral
risk factors related to the health issue or behavior
● Identify the priority population from your article
● Discuss why this health issue or behavior is of importance among this population
Overview of Theory – 2 pages
● Provide a brief historical overview of the theory
● Describe the theory and define its major constructs or components (Not in context of the
article – solely the theory on its own)
● Be sure to cite proper references (i.e., the textbook!)
Critique of reviewed article – 3 pages
● Provide a critique of your article (similar to your homework assignments!). Your summary
should include the following:
● The purpose and main goal(s) of the study
● How the theory was applied/measured: A description of the operationalization and/or
application of theory constructs within the study (i.e., provide specific examples in the
program or items on the surveys that described how the constructs were operationalized
or what activities were used)
● Brief results (were study aims achieved? Why/Why not?)
● Strengths & weaknesses of applying this theory. Consider:
○ Other constructs the study could have applied
○ Different operationalization of constructs
○ Do NOT focus on limitations of the study design! Think about the theoretical
application!
Healthy People 2030 & Interventions – 3 pages

objective. Be detailed and specific (include baseline & target values)

programs/interventions that address this HP2030 objective & your health topic.(look for
“independent” studies!)
● Be sure to cite your sources!
● Consider if you were to apply your theory to the two (2) above interventions: discuss how
you might apply or incorporate the theory constructs (a select few or all) to each
intervention.
● Discuss the public health implications of applying this theory in each
intervention/program (what impact does this theory have on the overall health topic &
population?)
