Welcome Public Health 106 students! The videos on this page highlight the knowledge and skills needed to locate and use sources for your Policy Analysis Paper.
As you begin this project, you will conduct a literature review to find research articles and other sources. Your literature review will synthesize existing research, policies and statistics to inform the description of your selected health problem and region, stakeholder identities, identify and analyze policy options, and will be used to justify your policy recommendation.
The other pages on this guide provide more in-depth information, specific examples, and additional resources to support your project. If you have questions, please email or schedule a Zoom appointment. Best of luck with your research! Elizabeth
On this page you will find four video tutorials
The videos provide brief instructions and intended to be used alongside the other resources contained in this guide.
As you watch, feel free to pause the video and try out some of the techniques on your own.
