PriorEvaluation #1:Cardiovascular diseases
Purpose:The main key is to provide a heads up on the question of whether thehealth education and community organization produce favorable changestowards the cardio vascular disease risk (IOM(Institute of Medicine), 2010).
Location:Northern California is the area of discussion as it has been noted tohave numerous cases of cardio vascular disease (IOM(Institute of Medicine), 2010).
Design: They used randomized experiment to conduct the research. This isbecause they were picking participants in a non strategic manner.
Numberof participants:The number involved in the survey varies from 221 women to 190 men(Reginald,& Washington, M.D. 1999).
Activities:Invitation of participants to attend survey centers.
Results:A high percentage of young smokers were obtained on the risk factor.
Limitations:Possibility of experiencing a bias situation may arise due to riskfactors that will motivate people to continue with the study(Reginald,& Washington, M.D. 1999).
PriorIntervention #2:Cardiovascular diseases
Purpose:To gain knowledge of the outcome of the results obtained.
Location:In this case the locale being discussed is still in the NorthernCalifornia where the disease has been observed to be very active(Reginald,& Washington, M.D. 1999).
Design:In this case, predictor variable strategy was used in obtaining thedata (IOM(Institute of Medicine), 2010).
Numberof participants:The number does not change what is put into more consideration is theage of the participants.
Activities:Emphasis on people being active in sports (IOM(Institute of Medicine), 2010).
Results: The same results obtained from the evaluation of the high percentageof risk factors also appear in the prior interventions.
Limitations:The finding has significant differences between both the non dropoutsand the dropouts who in this case it involve smoking (Reginald,& Washington, M.D. 1999).
