Global Health Presentation Assignment

Starting Points from Your Course Syllabus

As indicated in your syllabus, check the governmental web site for the country you are analyzing.  The site may include information about the history of the healthcare system in that country, as well as other points you are required to include in your analysis.  Remember that relevant information may be spread out over the site, so you may have to take some time to browse.

Or, if you have specific concepts you want to search, you can do a site search of any web site through your search engine as follows, but you will probably need to search to find the correct government web site address first.

your search term or phrase site:web site URL 

Example: health care costs site:canada.ca

Refer to the syllabus for additional data source suggestions.

Other Potential Sources

These sources contain varying levels of detail so some of them may be useful for background, but you may need to follow up on their cited references and/or locate other sources for more detail.

 

Review articles about health policy and health systems

There are often articles in medical journals about health policy and health care systems in the United States and other countries.  Some of these articles may be review articles that would provide a useful overview of the health system for your presentation.  Others may be have a very detailed focus about one particular aspect of the healthcare system or its history that would not be relevant for your broader overview.

You might try searching PubMed to determine if there are articles on your country and topic of choice that you can use, especially if the sources you have used so far are not yielding enough information. 

For more relevant results, copy and paste the search strategies (in bold type) listed below, then to the left of the list of results, click "Review" under publication type to limit to review articles.  You may also need to apply the English language limit, depending on which country you are searching.

  • ("Health Policy/history"[Majr] OR "Health Policy/trends"[Majr]) AND "Canada"[Mesh]
    • If you substitute the name of the country you are researching, it will search for both the country and the history or trends of health policy as a main subject of the article, but there may be very few (if any) current and relevant results, depending on the country searched.
  • ( "Health Care Costs/history"[Majr] OR "Health Care Costs/trends"[Majr] ) AND "United States"[MeSH]
    • If you substitute the name of the country you are researching, it will search for both the country and the history or trends of health care costs as a main subject of the article, but there may be very few (if any) current and relevant results, depending on the country searched. 

Evaluate Your Sources!!

Before you rely on ANY type of information (websites, media, books, articles), you should evaluate whether the source is credible. There are many different approaches.  Regardless of the approach you use, be sure to evaluate!  If you have questions about how to evaluate, ask your librarian.
