Vulnerable Population Summary and Proposed Program

Vulnerable Population Summary and Proposed Program

The first of your two written assignments for the course will  provide a beginning framework that you will utilize in the development  of your
Final Project: a proposal for a community-based  program in your area. For this first written assignment, you will  select one of the vulnerable groups identified in the text that will  serve as your target population of interest throughout the duration of  your next written assignment and Final Project.

Select one among the following groups from Chapter 1:

  • Vulnerable mothers and children
  • Abused individuals
  • Chronically ill and disabled people
  • People diagnosed with HIV/AIDS
  • People diagnosed with mental conditions
  • Suicide- and homicide-liable people
  • People affected by alcohol and substance abuse
  • Indigent and homeless people
  • Immigrants and refugees
  • Groups for special consideration (you may propose a different vulnerable population at the consent of the instructor)

Once you have selected a group of interest, write a three page paper that covers the following:

  • Discuss the impact that at least two of the factors below have on the vulnerability of your chosen group:
    • Age
    • Gender
    • Culture/Ethnicity
    • Income
  • Analyze the intersection of social, political, and economic factors affecting vulnerability (must address all three factors).
  • Draft the design of a new model program, not currently existent  within your community. Provide a two- to- three paragraph statement that  introduces your proposed community program. This section is tentative  and might change as you conduct more research. At a minimum, however,  items to address should include:
  • An explanation of the issues and risk factors experienced by the selected population.
  • An evaluation of the health needs of the group and a proposed  continuum of care level (preventive, treatment, or long-term care) based  on the group’s issues, risk factors, and needs.  Justify the proposed  level with supportive research/evidence.
  • A description of one to two proposed services your program will include.

Your assignment should be a minimum of three pages in length  (excluding title and reference pages), and should include a minimum of  three scholarly sources cited according to APA guidelines as outlined in  the Ashford Writing Center.
