HHS 460 Week 1 DQ 1 Research Presentation

Research Presentation. Assume you are asked to present a half hour talk about research in human services. Since this could cover a vast number of concepts, you decide to illustrate a basic research process (steps) and provide a real-world example taken from your text. One example is: Research in Practice 10.2 (pp. 273) and the second example is: Research in Practice 9.2 (pp. 246). Explanations as to the rational for using a scientific research method compared to just providing a theoretical explanation would make the presentation more valid. In the discussion address the notion that in so many health and human services programs, finding important information is tied to the need for information to solve problems. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings.

HHS 460 Week 1 DQ 2 Intake Process (Ash)

HHS 460 Week 1 DQ 2 Intake Process

Intake Process. Often when providing services, basic intake information is required. The researcher could, at the end of a given time period, examine these intake papers and, based on some need, compute descriptive statistics using information provided by the clients / participants. Information such as income, family make up, and education levels could be used to compute mean values. However, you may be asked to configure a study that can be called experimental. In this discussion forum you are asked to compare these two formats and identify in what ways they differ. In order to determine definitions of descriptive research, you will need to access the MREL Reference Appendix A. Your post should focus on differentiating these two research types and then discuss their potential contribution to research in health and human services. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings.

HHS 460 Week 2 DQ 1 Locating Resources (Ash)

HHS 460 Week 2 DQ 1 Locating Resources

Locating Resources. The ability to locate and utilize information relative to Health and Human Services is an important component of many health and human service jobs. Some of the areas included in HHS programs are:

§ Legal/illegal immigration

§ Poverty

§ Violence in the Media

§ Unemployment

§ Alcoholism

§ Gambling

§ Sexual Harassment

§ Criminal Justice

§ Hunger / Homelessness

§ Mental Illness

§ Health

As an example, the area of “poverty” was selected from the above list to locate information and relevant reports. To accomplish this, the following was entered into a search engine (such as Google or MSN): “Health and human services and programs dealing with poverty.” One of the 1, 490,000 “hits” was titled: “Poverty Guidelines, Research and Measurement.” Upon searching this website, an elaborate set of focus subtitles was found. Under the heading “Poverty Research Centers” six more references were discovered. As the interest was focused on discovering what information was available, the search centered on “The National Poverty Center.” An examination on this site under that heading yielded numerous areas regarding new research opportunities, informing the policy community, and training for young researchers. Your specific assignment follows. Start with an exploration of what can be found in several of the areas listed above. Then, identify one area and prepare a descriptive post outlining the information in this site. You may want to experiment with various areas in order to understand the unusually large number of resources / programs, but also the kinds of information. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings.

HHS 460 Week 2 DQ 2 Research Venues

Research Venues. Research can be divided into three broad areas: descriptive, qualitative, and quantitative. Some researchers subsume descriptive research (archival) as quantitative. However, for this discussion, we are considering it a separate kind, as descriptive research can fall into either area: qualitative or quantitative. Your assignment for this discussion is to prepare a 250-300 word post differentiating qualitative, quantitative, and analysis of availability data. Identify those attributes that form the essence of these three research venues. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings.

Questions that might be considered:

§ What are the differences in types of data / information among the three venues?

§ What are the expected outcomes when using each kind? For example, does using available data enable one to determine cause and effect?

§ Which venue utilizes narrative and observation as a data source?

§ What are some advantages / disadvantages for each research venue?

HHS 460 Week 3 DQ 1 Canadian National Health Plan (Ash)

HHS 460 Week 3 DQ 1 Canadian National Health Plan

Canadian National Health Plan. Research can vary from highly sophisticated experimental studies to less rigorous short term investigations. Each research approach has advantages and disadvantages. Among the different paradigms you could use, two of the more common are the “positivist approach” and the “interpretive approach” (consult pages 39-40 in the text). If you were interested in determining if the Canadian National Health Plan was “better” (better in terms of care, coverage, and choice of doctors) then the current United States Health Coverage Plan (Obama sponsored), which approach would you choose to make this determination? Provide a justification to your answer. Remember, your decision is about the research paradigm, and the subject focus (health care plans) provides the context. Select the responses of two classmates, comparing the position you take and the justification. If you agree in terms of the position, discuss any differences of opinion in terms of the justification.

HHS 460 Week 3 DQ 2 Research Formats

Research Formats. The research format found in scholarly journal articles has purpose and direction. Chapters 2 and 4 in the text provide information as to the logic and makeup of a research effort. Parallel to the structure of the research format is the notion of the scientific method as a basic approach to solving problems. Your task is to analyze these two venues, identifying in what ways they complement each other, and how each venue is related to the other. You may want to access outside references regarding the concepts of research format and the scientific method. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings.

HHS 460 Week 3 Final Paper Outline

Final Paper Outline. The Final Paper will be the final assignment for this research course. This paper will be due on the last day of class in Week 5. Your written assignment for this week is to do the following:

§ Identify the phenomena you wish to concentrate on within the broad realm of health and human services. Your references (should be a minimum of eight), will come from the databases and reference sources you covered earlier throughout course assignments. You will need to create a description of the phenomena – the core issue or objective upon which you will focus.

§ Identify the components, attributes, and different segments you will write about in your discussion.

§ Create a detailed outline of your research report/paper.

This research report outline should be a minimum of 2-3 pages in length.

HHS 460 Week 4 DQ 1 Careers in HHS

Careers in HHS. The great variety of careers and occupations within the field of HHS is growing every year. A review of some of the data bases in the text will provide opportunities to search and identify many occupational areas within different governmental departments and programs. Searching, for example, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services website will result in finding many careers such as: social workers, preschool programs, criminal justice, counseling, gerontology, and drug and alcohol treatment. After selecting two different websites related to HHS, identify two career areas in the HHS field and do the following:

§ Record the websites or data bases, listing the careers or occupations given.
