Assignment Details


Summary of Population of Interest and Discussion of Interview with a Healthcare Professional


Compose a paper that describes the population of interest (POI) that you have chosen and a summary of the interview with a healthcare professional with experience working with your chosen POI.

Potential Focus Populations:

  • Chronic Medical Illness Management (choose specific illness): Congestive heart failure (CHF), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), type 2 diabetes, type 1 diabetes, chronic renal failure, renal or hemodynamic dialysis, sickle cell anemia, multiple sclerosis, cystic fibrosis, Crohn’s disease, obesity
  • Mental Health: Depression, schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s disease, eating disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), bipolar disorder
  • Cancer: All types
  • Organ Transplantation
  • Pain Management: Chronic
  • Home Health/Hospice: Choose specific population
  • Children with Special Health Care Needs: Physical or cognitive disabilities, autism spectrum disorders, premature birth/NICU infants, genetic disorders

Part 1:

The summary of population of interest (POI) is where you will justify why this is an important POI; therefore, you need to supply data and information that supports your choice of POI. You do this by providing background information, statistical support, and specific information about the POI. The paper should not be purely anecdotal information from you or your sources. The paper should focus on the following:

  1. Consider the following questions as you justify the reasons you have chosen this POI:
  1. Why is this POI important to the field of nursing? Why is this POI important to study?
  2. How does this POI affect the staff/patients/clients?
  3. What is the current state of this POI in health care?
  4. Is this POI a local, country, or global concern?
  5. Make sure to discuss in detail your plan for how you will research this POI. How do you plan to search the current literature for actual research studies on the topic?
  6. Be sure to identify how specific theory and knowledge from each of the following areas contributed to your ability to research and plan a course of action for your chosen POI. Consider how each of the following areas has impacted you, what you have learned in each of these areas, and how these experiences have shaped you as a student and RN:
  1. Specific prior general education courses
  2. Specific prior nursing courses
  3. Your nursing background and experience

Part 2:

For this part of the Assignment, you will conduct an interview with a professional who works with your particular POI, preferably a case manager or a participant in case management activities with the chosen POI.

Criteria for the interview:

  • Interviewee should have at least a bachelor’s degree and have been working with the POI for at least 1 year.
  • Interviewee should preferably be a registered nurse (RN), but it is acceptable to interview another professional such as a social worker, physician, or ancillary specialist.
  • Interviewee can work in a variety of different settings, such as acute care, chronic care, or long-term care institutions.
  • Interview can take place in person or via phone, email, or other distance format.
  • There is no time requirement or limit for the interview, just make sure you address all questions.

Step 1 – Identify a professional to interview.

Step 2 – Create a list of 10 questions specific to your POI and the professional you have chosen to interview. Questions should be open-ended. Demographic questions do not count, and that information should be included in the introductory paragraph of your paper.

Step 3 – Conduct the interview.

Step 4 – Take notes during the interview or record the interview.

Step 5 – Write up the interview and turn into the Dropbox.

The paper should follow this format:

  1. Introduction
  2. Discussion of POI
  3. Introduction to who you interviewed: basic information about who the person is, place of employment, primary job responsibilities
  4. List of questions with corresponding answers
  5. Summary of what you learned in this interview process
  6. Conclusion: summarizing Parts 1 & 2

Assignment Requirements:

The finished Assignment should be 5–6 pages, excluding the title page and references. This paper should have at least three references. The viewpoint and purpose of this Assignment should be clearly established and sustained.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
