Infectivity
Questions to Address
How easily does this organism spread from human to human animal to human vector to human vector to animal etc? We are looking for the reproductive value (http://www.healthline.com/health/r-nought-reproduction-number#Calculation3). Another word for the Ro is R naught or Reproductive Ratio. This only applies to organisms that are communicable human to human. If your organism is not communicable human to human but is a zoonotic disease how quickly can it spread among the animal reservoir?
Quality of Research
It is expected that you will use recent (within the last five years) primary peer-reviewed journal articles. However you may be writing on a disease that is neglected or no longer of interest. Check with your instructor to see if your disease meets these criteria.
Virulence
Questions to Address
What is the case fatality rate? How lethal is this organism? What are the virulence factors that this organism has? If it is a virus what is the cytopathic effect on the cell that it infects? How does this organism cause symptomatic disease?

Descriptive Epidemiology
What populations are disproportionately affected by this organism? Please describe in three sections: Person (age groups race/ethnicities occupations religions etc.) Place (Environments (tropical desert forest etc) Urban vs. Rural Cities States Counties) Time (Seasonal Cyclic or Secular Patterns)
This is looking for the statistics in those . Please note this section should have graphs maps and other statistics to support your points.

Check with your instructor to see if your disease meets these criteria. The CDCs MMWR and the CDCs EID are excellent resources for this item.
Analytic Epidemiology
Questions to Address
What are the risk factors for this disease? What behaviors or actions put you most at risk for getting this illness? Evaluate the outbreak studies of these diseases. Look for statistics called either the Odds Ratio or the Relative Risk Ratio. We will be lecturing on what these mean in class and how they should be incorporated in your paper.

Signs and Symptoms
List the signs and symptoms from most common to least common and most severe to least severe. What are the characteristics definitive signs that are indicative of this disease? What screening tests and/or confirmatory tests are used and what are the sensitivities and specificities?

Treatment & Management
Can the disease be cured or treated? If so what are the methods or medications to do so?

Control and Prevention
How does one control or prevent this disease? What options are at our disposal from human control to vector or organism control?

Conclusion
Conclude your paper by briefly summarizing what you have already said throughout your paper.  This is where it would be appropriate to cite your opinions or to talk about what you learned about the topic you have researched and written about.  The References page should be on a page by itself.  What that means is regardless of where your Conclusion ends always start your References page on a new page and type the word References centered not bolded on the very first line.  Do not use the words Resources Reference (singular) Works Cited etc.  Use References.
Also please remember your paper should end with answering the question so what and who cares.

NOTE: Your reference page is always last and begins on a new separate page like this.  The title is just as you see it above.  The following applies:
All references are double spaced like the rest of your paper with the first line flush left with the margin and all lines after the first line (of each individual reference) is indented as above.  This is also referred to as a hanging indent.
There are specific components for each of the various types of references used (books journals magazines websites etc.) depending on the type of reference you are listing.  Check the APA Publication Manual to make sure you include all the appropriate components for your references.
All references must be alphabetized A to Z regardless of type of reference.  See your APA Publication Manual for examples.
If you cite a reference in the body of the text of your paper the reference must be listed on this page and vice versa.  If you have a reference listed here make sure you have cited it in your paper somewhere.
