Assessment 3 Health and Society

Assessment 3 Health and Society – case study
• Due by 5pm Wednesday May 27, 2020
• Worth 40%
• Report – that is, write in paragraphs and use headings (this is not a long report so do
not write a contents page or executive summary)
• Word limit 1500 words (this includes in text references but not the reference list)
• You need to provide a reference in text for all ideas you refer to e.g. social
determinants of health, information about the health issues, treatment guides etc.
See https://learning.elucidat.com/course/5e55e733cbba7-5e5f28890c316 for some
information on how to do this.
• This assessment also provides an opportunity for English language assessment (see
the framework available in the assessment 3 folder) so you need to provide full
sentences and structured paragraphs.
