Biopsychosocial Vs. Biomedical Model
After reviewing the resources in the course materials, write a 750-1,000-word paper analyzing the biopsychosocial and the biomedical models of health.
Include the following in your writing:
- Differentiate between the biomedical and biopsychosocial models.
- Identify the factors of each model (biological, psychological, social).
- Describe the role of biological, psychological, and social factors as it relates to health and illness.
- What are the current leading causes of death for each model?
- How can lifestyle or healthful behaviors reduce illness?
Use three to four current scholarly resources to support your discussion (one of which may be the textbook).
