Vaccine Hesitancy ‘ Outbreaks

Vaccine Hesitancy ‘ Outbreaks

The assessment is a 3,000 word structured critical analysis of published research or

study, which will include a discussion of epidemiologic issues. The objective of the

assessment is to enhance your ability to make sound epidemiologic judgements

related to a public health issue and to give you experience of critically appraising an

epidemiologic and/or public health research article.

Three suggestions are provided below if you are uncertain about which topic area /

study to critically appraise; please choose only one. If you wish to focus on a

different topic area or study, please discuss this with your module tutor first to make

sure it is appropriate.
