Why is Rubella common among Male Hispanic Children between the ages of one Month to two Years? Health Care Research Proposal


The topic seeks to evaluate the prevalence of rubella among male Hispanic children.


According to Simons et al., rubella is one of the rare complications among infants with most of the patients developing the complication due to infection of one of the people around them or the mother at the time before conception (1334). Early development of rubella is common among infants between the first week and the 12th week after conception. Toizumi, Nguyen, and Motomura, consider that children are at risk of developing sensory defects while some of the infants exhibit development delays (4648).


The study focuses on the Hispanic population in Southwest region of California.


The problem statement from the perception of a colleague is a sensitive healthcare issue in the pediatric department and prevention of health issues that might develop due to contracting rubella.

Importance of Problem Statement

  1. Improve awareness about rubella
  2. Encourage development of preventive measures for rubella
  3. Enhance patient education


  1. Development of acute complications  
  2. Poor response time to manage rubella

Statistics, Trends or Theoretical Controversies of Study

The study seeks to point out the urgency of identifying and managing rubella at the early stages before its development and spread.

Projected Outcomes

To enhance the care of children while enhancing provision of care to prevent exposure to viral infections at early stages of life.


The research integrates additional research on the use and application of preventive measures in enhancing pediatric care.


The study will prove that through the integration of preventive medication care healthcare providers can enhance quality of care among Hispanics infants while reducing instances of rubella infections.

Persuasive, Rational Response

The study is to be one of a series of relatable cases aimed at ensuring that patient-centered care is attained.
