Public health professionals need to be able to apply concepts of pathophysiology in order to effectively communicate what is known about the situation and determine appropriate actions for prevention and control.

Your Instructor has provided the class with a health communication scenario (below) that is used in this module. Health literacy and good communication skills are extremely important to crisis and other types of health communications. Public health professionals need to be able to apply concepts of pathophysiology in order to effectively communicate what is known about the situation and determine appropriate actions for prevention and control.
The first step in creating your health communication video, due in this Module, is to create an Annotated Bibliography to help you locate, understand, and organize the literature on this topic. Locate at least four recent, primary research articles on the biological agent in the scenario to help you determine the pathophysiology and human health risk of the organism. In addition to the research articles on the biological agent, you may wish to include some resources on health communications and high quality secondary sources such as review articles and scholarly public health websites (e.g., NCHS, CDC, WHO, etc.). Download the checklist from the Learning Resources to help you create this Assignment.
Your Annotated Bibliography must include
• Title page
• Sources: Four recent (less than 3 years old) primary peer-reviewed research articles that relate to the provided health communication scenario. Beyond the minimum four primary research articles, you may add additional, high-quality secondary literature (reviews or meta-analyses), and you may use websites, if from a scholarly and relevant source (e.g., CDC, NCHS, WHO, etc.). Your sources must follow APA formatting.
• Annotation: For each research article, include the study aim, the methods used, and the findings. For each non-research source, provide a concise description of the relevant key points addressed in the source. Include in the annotation a brief description of how you plan to use each source (e.g., provides statistics for the problem, etc.).

Module Annotated Bibliography Checklist
Instructions: Review the Assignment instructions in the course to choose a chronic disease and narrow down the focus. Be sure that the articles you chose are available in full text (not just abstracts), either in the Walden Library databases or from an open-access journal. This resource is a checklist to remind you to double check the important features before submitting your Assignment.
