HCA 402: Term Paper Guidelines
Healthcare is a multidisciplinary field, e.g., there are primary care physicians, specialists, nurses, technicians, pharmacists, administrators, and others. They all work together as a single unit for common goals…”safe and quality in patient care.”
Public health is no different. Public health is also a multidisciplinary field composed of epidemiologists, environmentalists, biostatisticians, behavioral scientists, and/or health educators. Public health also includes specialists in clinical research, chronic disease, infectious disease, emergency medical services, food safety, global emergency preparedness, and response professionals. Some public health specialists focus on health disparities, international/global health, laboratory practices, maternal and child health concerns, women’s health, mental health, nutrition/dietetics, occupational health and safety, and toxicology.
Finally, there are public health officials that focus on the economics or finance, of public health and communities, in addition to public health laws and public health policies.
