Describe the content and purpose of each section presented in the article. 

Health Education Literature

To serve as resources of health information and communicate  information to those in need, healthcare professionals must be able to  find health information from credible sources. To align with this weeks  learning outcome, students will be able to better assess the quality of  information provided by various types of sources.
Part I: Research Articles
All research articles follow a very similar pattern when it comes to  content. Review the Holman and White article from this week’s required  resources. To locate the article, click on the “Find Articles &  More” link in the top navigation bar of the Ashford University  Library. Then, select the “Databases A-Z” link, followed by the letter  “P” option. Scroll down to the “PubMed Central” database, and enter the  article title in the search bar. You will want to review the full-text,  PDF version of this article.

  • Describe the content and purpose of each section presented in the article.
  • Comprehensively analyze the content by addressing the following guiding questions that have been adapted from your text:
    • Were the objectives of the study clearly defined?
    • Was the research question stated?
    • Did the introduction provide reasoning for asking the research question?
    • Are the subjects/sample population well described?
    • Was the recruitment of the subjects/sample population clearly defined?
    • Was the design of the study described well?
    • Was the process of data collection clear?
    • Were the data collection instruments described well?
    • Was validity and reliability data reported for the data collection instruments?
    • Did the results address the research question?
    • Did the conclusions align with the results?
    • Did the authors suggest practical applications of the findings to a population that is similar to the subject population?

Part II: Non-Research Articles and Accuracy

  • When we obtain information from sources other than research  articles, we still need to determine whether it is accurate and  valid. Discuss each of the questions developed by Cottrell (2014) that  are listed in your course text on page 291. Then, explain the criteria  used to evaluate non-research based information by addressing each of  the following guiding questions:
  • How does each of these questions enhance your search for credibility?
  • Are there similarities between these requirements and the writing requirements of your assignments?
  • What are the five areas to consider when evaluating information from the Internet?

Evaluate the health information found on the internet by examining  the information provided on emotional health from one of the following  websites: the Center for Young Women’s Health (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., Young Men’s Health (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., or EmpowHER (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. Provide  an example for each area of evaluation with the information from your  selected site. Is the information provided on the website credible?   Would you use this information to educate an individual? Explain your  answers.
