Unit 11 Role of Public Health and Social Care Assignment

Case Study

Junior Research Assistant in Local WHO at your communities

You are a Junior Research Assistant on an infectious disease unit in local World Health Organisation (WHO) at your communities. This is your first time working on a unit like this and it is linked to the studies you have undertaken in public health. Your Supervisor has set certain learning criteria for you in order to enhance your learning experience whilst at WHO, these criteria include: you undertaking research into the epidemiology of both infectious and infectious diseases, being able to apply statistical data and interpret the findings, knowing the different local and worldwide agencies that deal with the study and distribution of disease.

The Supervisor wishes for you to investigate the implications of illness and disease in communities for the provision of health and social care services. In order to complete this you will need to address the priorities and different approaches that are required, the different relationships between the prevalence of disease and requirements of service to support the individuals affected and finally you will need to analyse the impact of current lifestyle choices and their impingement on health.

Before you complete your placement your Supervisor wants to ensure that you have an overall understanding of the factors that influence the health and wellbeing of individuals within health and social care. In order to demonstrate this you will need to research priorities in health such as physical, psychological and sociological needs. In addition you will need to examine strategies, systems and policies that are in place with regards to the provision of care and reflect upon how these influence the health and wellbeing of individuals. Finally you will need to examine how one can encourage behaviour change through different methods available for example education and input from specialists.
