Select an article on a public health issue that utilizes one of the following cutting-edge research methods:

  • Bayesian methods
  • Causal inference methods
  • Geographic information systems
  • Network meta-analysis
  • Gene-environment interactions
  • Genome-wide association studies
  • Systematic narrative reviews

Consider how the method was used and why it is considered cutting-edge. In addition, think about whether an alternative method would have been more appropriate.

With these thoughts in mind:

Write an APA format summary of the article you selected and a description of the method that was used. Explain why this method is considered cutting-edge in epidemiology, including any advantages it provides that were not provided by other methods. Explain if this was the best method to address the research question given the current state of knowledge on this issue. Support your post using scholarly resources.
