Heart Disease in Canada

Heart Disease in Canada

The focus of this assignment is on providing the epidemiological evidence and
consequences for heart disease in Canada. Begin this assignment by reading from
reputable sources about heart disease in Canada. Reputable sources are sources
such as government websites or peer reviewed journals. Please do not use
information from newspapers, blogs, Wikipedia or American based information.
When you begin your search get in the habit of preparing your reference list
immediately by recording all pertinent information on that reference following
APA format with page number (citation). Your paper should consist of a cover
page that contains vital information such as your name, ID number, course number,
date of submission and title of paper. Check your APA manual regarding
information that should be on a cover page. If you have headings in your paper,
you should have as the second page, a table of contents. This would be followed by
the main section of your paper and the last section of the paper is your reference
list.
The entire paper excluding the cover page, table of contents and reference list
should be between 8-9 pages in length. You should have a minimum of 5 reputable
and current (5 years old or less) references. All references both in the body of the
paper and in the reference, list must follow APA format. Be sure to include page
numbers in your paper. Start your paper with an introduction, 1-2 paragraphs in
length that outlines the purpose and scope of the paper. The main body of the paper
is next. This should contain the most current epidemiological data around the rates
for heart disease in Canada. Do not get into an explanation of the different types of
heart disease as this is not necessary, you already have this information from your
previous nursing program.
Provide evidence (prevalence and incidence) around where in Canada are the rates
highest and who in terms of population groups are most affected by heart disease?
Provide epidemiological evidence about the trends for heart disease in Canada for
the past 10-15 years. How do the rates in Canada compare to other countries such
as the United States of America? In the next section of the paper provide evidence
around community-based strategies that are being used to address this health issue,
include strategies aimed at all levels of prevention. In this section also address how
heart disease impacts health care in Canada today (consider direct and indirect
impacts). The final part of the paper is the conclusion which should be a
summarization of the topic

• Use of APA 7th edition that includes a cover page (to include the title, student’s
Last Name, First Name, and Date of Submission. Proper APA referencing is
required throughout the paper. • Type in 12 Font with 2.5 cm margins; papers
