Research Paper Expectations

 Choose ONE of the following topics listed and write a 6-8 page research paper (due to the course Dropbox on Monday of Week 7):

  1. Constructing a health promotion program: Optimal health is more than just the absence of disease. Construct a health promotion program that focuses on promoting optimal health for older adults. Select a specific health condition facing older adults that is covered in the text. Design your health promotion program to address the specific causes of the condition, the potential for social stigma, and adaptations that can be made to alleviate the condition, as well as the proposed program’s structure, goals, objectives, and potential results. Evidence from scholarly sources must support your program.
  2. Services for caregivers: Design a community-based social and health-care system that could encourage many informal caregivers to use these services for their older care recipients. Include discussion of the theoretical reasons behind the system you designed as well as the programs and procedures to be included. Support your design and discussion with evidence from scholarly sources.
  3. Building an intergenerational center: Based on reading Chapter 9, you should have a familiarity with the benefits of intergenerational reciprocity. Design an intergenerational program for the local community. What services would it provide? How would the center work to maintain its focus on intergenerational relations?  Where would the center be located and what would it look like? Support your program design with evidence from scholarly sources.

Research: You must communicate your points about the topic and support them with factual evidence obtained from scholarly/peer-reviewed sources, such as professional journal articles available through the college library. You should use sufficient evidence from these sources to support your assertions. Note: Textbooks other than the course text should not be used as references.

APA format: Use of APA format will be considered in grading. The paper must include title, abstract, and reference pages in addition to the 6-8 pages required for the body of the paper. APA citations must be used. At least two levels of headings are required to organize the paper. Resources on APA format are available in the course Content area.

Proper English: Grammar, spelling and punctuation will be considered in grading.
