The purpose of this study is to analyze the health needs and quality of care received by prisoners in state correctional facilities and discuss the possible effects of inadequate health care. What policies and procedures for overseeing correctional facilities would improve care and health outcomes for the incarcerated?
The final grade will consist of a comprehensive 30-page (minimum) research proposal. The proposal will comprise the following sections:
1. Problem or Objective
2. Literature Review
3. Subjects of Study
5. Data Collection Method
8. Budget The proposal is based on the rationale that we “propose” or “intend” to do research.
Meaning, you are not actually going to do the research per se. Instead, you will prepare a document (which in this case happens to be no less than 30 pages long) where you propose to research a particular topic.
Each week from this point forward will focus on a particular part/section of the proposal. For instance, in week 3, we discuss the “problem or objective”. So, your task in this particular week, in addition to completing the readings and discussion board, will be to start drafting the problem or objective.
The week that follows (week 4) will focus on the literature review and so on. The point here is that by the end of the term, the entire proposal will have been discussed and explained to you. A good technique to follow is to simply complete the section of the proposal during the corresponding week; thus, ensuring that by the end of the term, the entire proposal is completed in the format provided.
Another thing to keep in mind is that APA citation style must be followed throughout this particular assignment.
