Week 1 – Assignment
Preliminary Outline and Foundational Definitions
This assignment will help you prepare for your Final Paper. For this assignment you will select a disease/condition from the list below to investigate, select the Complementary and Alternative Health (CAH) system you will evaluate for the treatment of the disease/condition you select, generate a thesis statement, create an outline, and provide a preliminary list of references.
For your assignment you must:
Select a disease/condition from the list below in medicine that you will investigate.
Drug and alcohol addiction
You may also choose a disease/condition of your own but you must seek approval for the condition from your instructor.
Select the Complementary and Alternative Health (CAH) system you will evaluate in the treatment of the disease/condition you have selected.
Generate a thesis statement that conveys your comparative evaluation of evidence-based treatment practices and treatment outcomes for all three models of care (CAH system, conventional medicine, integrative medicine).
Thesis Statement: Your thesis statement must:
Indicate your chosen disease/condition
Indicate the complementary and alternative health system you have designated for your analysis.
Provide the clinical definition of your disease/condition from the perspective of conventional medicine (CM) and complementary and alternative health (CAH) system. The definition you provide should include specific data regarding morbidity, mortality, and other epidemiological data. In addition you must clearly differentiate the conventional definition from that of the CAH definition if a clear and distinct definition is available for the CAH you are basing your final project.
Outline: Develop an outline containing the structure/ framework that lists the thesis or central argument, along with any main topics and support to be included in your Final Paper.
References: Create a preliminary list of references that will align with the content of your introduction and your EBM review. As you continue with your research and evaluation, your list of references will inherently change, however you will be asked to provide revisions in Week Two and submit evidence of any changes thereafter. Include five- to ten- references you plan to use in your Final Paper. Finally, the list of references you provide must be formatted in accordance with APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
