WEEK 1 REPORT INSTRUCTIONS
For your report this first week you will report on a topic or issue that has policy implications. The main goal of this assignment is to get our heads into what policy is, and to understand that policy is a process!
I did a quick search in NPR and found segments that were recently aired that have health policy implications. You will choose from the list below for your report. Note that the articles focus on health at different levels. You may want to do additional background reading and research to be better informed on the topic.
Choose ONE of the following Topics for your Report:
Topic 1: The Disabled Being Evicted from Nursing Homes
Topic 2: Salmonella outbreak in Alfalfa Sprouts
Topic 3: Ruling on Restaurant Menu Labeling
Topic 4: Pot Tourists in Colorado Landing in the ER
Please complete the assignment on the other Week 1 report doc. This one is just to give more detailed instructions.
Formatting: Please use the following formatting for preparing this assignment (include the numbers too!).
Introduction: Briefly summarize the news piece. Why does this topic interest you?
Identify the form of policy (See P. 13-17 for the four forms). Why this form?
Identify the category of policy (See P.17-21 for allocative or regulatory categories. If you choose regulatory, also identify which subtype). Why this category?
Identify the health determinant(s) this health issue potentially influences (See P. 21-23 for the health determinants. There may be more than one!). Why this/these determinants?
Would this policy impact more targeted health care delivery organizations, or does it have the potential to impact the larger health care delivery systems—ie many facets of an integrated system? Identify the health care delivery organizations that are or may be impacted by this policy (See P. 30 -32).
Future Implications: Please address the policy’s potential impact. Exhibit 1.5 on P 22 is awesome if you are a visual learner. It will help you organize your thoughts. Hint: A good response for #3 will look at the issue from different angles or perspectives.
If nothing changes what are the health implications projecting out into the future?
If there are changes to existing policy, what are the health implications projecting out into the future?
Wrap Up: How much time did you spend on this Report assignment? How did it go for you? Was it difficult to do, or did you find it straight forward? What part of it was interesting to you?
References in APA style. I dock pts if sources are not listed according to APA stylistic guidelines, and (important) if you use sources within the body of the Report but don’t cite.
Length: The assignment can be one concise page, and should be no more than two pages long. I prefer single spacing rather than double or multiple. No need for a cover page and separate page for references for the Report assignments. Good luck!
Post your assignment in the weekly tab under the Report forum AND to the Dropbox. Also, please submit to the Dropbox for grading as an attachment. When posting to both locations, please name your post Week 1 Report (your name).
