Applied Statistics and Data Analysis for Public Health

Introduction

 

Statistics is defined as science of applied mathematics which concerns the collecting, processing, summarizing, interpreting and presenting the data. It explains and analyses the provided data and draws the conclusion from the information a sample data contained (Peck, Olsen & Devore, 2015). statistics is majorly used for appropriate data collection and presentation of complex data in suitable graphs, tables and diagrammatic forms to make it clear and easily understandable. Moreover, it helps to understand the complexity and pattern of variations in phenomenon of nature and is useful to plan a statistical analysis correctly and efficiently in any area of research (James et al., 2013). Statistical methods play a vital role in the monitoring and estimation process of public safety, used to classify population at risk, diagnose….

The drug Prevnar is a vaccine meant to prevent meningitis.  It is typically administered to infants. In clinical trials, the vaccine was administered to 710

randomly sampled infants between 12 and 15 months of age. Of the 710 infants, 121 experienced a loss of appetite. Is this significant evidence to conclude that the proportion of infants who receive Prevnar and experience a loss of appetite is different than 0.135 which is the proportion of children who experience a loss of appetite with competing medications? is an a of .05.

a) state the null and alternative hypotheses.

b) calculate the test statistic.

c)report the p-value

d)state a conclusion in context of the problem.

e)calculate a 95% confidence interval for the proportion of infants on Preener who experience a loss of appetite. Interpret the confidence interval in context of the problem.

f) does your confidence interval agree with the results of the hypothesis test? explain.

identify and describe the issues affecting  standards of practice related to competency of medical care identified  in the Lyckholm and Hackney article

In addition to summarizing the relevant points of the article,  explain the relevance that standards of practice have (or will have) to  you as a practitioner.

Justify your plan. Make sure to explain how you would teach each of the five points to those currently working….

Case Study on Death and Dying

The practice of health care providers at all levels brings you into contact with people from a variety of faiths. This calls for knowledge and acceptance of a diversity of faith expressions.

The purpose of this paper is to complete a comparative ethical analysis of George’s situation and decision from the perspective of two worldviews or religions: Christianity and a second religion of your choosing. For the second faith, choose a faith that is unfamiliar to you. Examples of faiths to choose from include Sikh, Baha’i, Buddhism, Shintoism, etc.

In your comparative analysis, address all of the worldview questions in detail for Christianity and your selected faith. Refer to Chapter 2 of Called to Care for the list of questions. Once you have outlined the worldview of each religion, begin your ethical analysis….
