Offer a critical discussion of the proposed research study with respect to public health and social justice. I
Students are required to design (not complete) a hypothetical research study on health inequality in a chosen population from a specific context while considering both individuals, culture, and social structures (e.g., government, schools, media) in addressing health inequalities.
The research proposal should:1) Clearly define the health inequality and population to be examined, describe the context of the health problem including the social determinants linking these to the agenda on social justice in health. Include at least six references to relevant scholarly research from the study context.
1) Clearly identify gaps in local empirical literature on health inequality (approximately 750 words not including references).
2) Students should clearly highlight the specific research question, study aim and 3 clear objectives of the project. They should identify samples of both components of their study (quantitative and qualitative), and potential ways to recruit participants (approximately 250 words).
3) For the quantitative portion, students will clearly define the sample size, sampling strategy, include one focal independent and dependent variables, and at least six control variables for comparison of population groups (approximately 350 words)
4) For the qualitative portion, students will list at least six samples for open-ended interviewquestions that ‘get at’ the topic they are choosing to examine in-depth, and identify any potential ethical considerations. From the six sampled questions, select 3 to 4 key questions for the interview (approximately 400 words).
5) Offer a critical discussion of the proposed research study with respect to public health and social justice. Include discussion of the proposal to individuals, culture, and social structures (e.g., government, schools, media) in addressing health inequalities. Apply appropriate social justice theories in the discussion (750 words).
