Topic: Applying the social determinants of health framework. Assignment Task. For this assignment, you will describe one of the conceptual social determinants of health frameworks we have discussed and apply it to a health issue.
1. Choose a social determinants of health framework we have covered in the module.
2. Describe the framework, summarising its main argument(s) succinctly.
3. Apply the framework to a specific health issue. This could either be:
a) The health issue that you have previously chosen and worked on in this module (see especially week 2)
b) A different health issue that is of interest to you, perhaps drawing on your professional or personal experience
When applying the social determinants of health framework, think about how the framework helps inform our understanding of the chosen health issue. Be analytical and critical and support your views with evidence from the academic literature.
A commentary is a short, somewhat journalistic description and analysis of an issue. The writing style is more newsy than academic or literary, and it is usually published as a newspaper column or a blog. Here are some examples: https://academic.oup.com/ije/article/46/4/1321/4102089
Your paper should include an introduction, a body, and a conclusion. Also, support your answers with the course’s readings and at least two scholarly journal articles. The article’s purpose is to support your positions, claims, and observations, in addition to your textbook.
ProQuest and EBSCOhost are great sites to find resources. Also, write in a concise and logical, using excellent grammar and style techniques. Additionally, the quality of your writing dictates grading criteria. On the other hand, if you use direct quotes from books or articles, place the words you copied (use parenthesis) and cite in-line.
The quotes should be complete sentences (no more, less) and should be incorporated in your essay to illustrate your ideas. Please, cite your sources in a clickable reference list at the end. Also, do not copy without providing proper attribution (quotation marks and in-line citations). Also, write an essay format, not in bullet form, numbering, or another list format. It would be best if you use your own words. Lastly, proofread your work and run it through Grammarly for thorough confirmation.
