Agenda Comparison Grid and Fact Sheet

NURS6050 Policy and Advocacy for Improving Population Health

Week 2 Assignment  

Agenda Comparison Grid and Fact Sheet

It may seem to you that healthcare has been a national topic of debate among political leaders for as long as you can remember.

 

Healthcare has been a policy item and a topic of debate not only in recent times but as far back as the administration of the second U.S. president, John Adams. In 1798, Adams signed legislation requiring that 20 cents per month of a sailor’s paycheck be set aside for covering their medical bills. This represented the first major piece of U.S. healthcare legislation, and the topic of healthcare has been woven into presidential agendas and political debate ever since.

 

As a healthcare professional, you may be called upon to provide expertise, guidance and/or opinions on healthcare matters as they are debated for inclusion into new policy. You may also be involved in planning new organizational policy and responses to changes in legislation. For all of these reasons you should be prepared to speak to national healthcare issues making the news.

 

In this Assignment, you will analyze recent presidential healthcare agendas. You also will prepare a fact sheet to communicate the importance of a healthcare issue and the impact on this issue of recent or proposed policy.

 

To Prepare:

 

Review the agenda priorities of the current/sitting U.S. president and at least one previous presidential administration.

 

Select an issue related to healthcare that was addressed by two U.S. presidential administrations (current and previous).

 

Consider how you would communicate the importance of a healthcare issue to a legislator/policymaker or a member of their staff for inclusion on an agenda.

 

Use your Week 1 Discussion post to help with this assignment.

 

The Assignment: (1- to 2-page Comparison Grid, 1-Page Analysis, and 1-page narrative) with a title page. This is an APA paper. Use 2-3 course resources and at least 2 outside resources.

 

Part 1: Agenda Comparison Grid

 

Use the Agenda Comparison Grid Template found in the Learning Resources and complete the Part 1: Agenda Comparison Grid based on the current/sitting U.S. president and the previous president, and their agendas related to the population health concern you selected. Be sure to address the following:

 

Identify and provide a brief description of the population health concern you selected.

 

Explain how each of the presidential administrations approached the issue.

 

Identify the allocation of resources that the presidents dedicated to this issue.

 

Part 2: Agenda Comparison Grid Analysis

 

Using the information you recorded in Part 1: Agenda Comparison Grid on the template, complete the Part 2: Agenda Comparison Grid Analysis portion of the template, by addressing the following:

 

Which administrative agency (like HHS, CDC, FDA, OHSA) would most likely be responsible for helping you address the healthcare issue you selected and why is this agency the most helpful for the issue?

 

How do you think your selected healthcare issue might get on the presidential agenda? How does it stay there?

 

An entrepreneur/champion/sponsor helps to move the issue forward. Who would you choose to be the entrepreneur/champion/sponsor (this can be a celebrity, a legislator, an agency director, or others) of the healthcare issue you selected and why would this person be a good entrepreneur/ champion/sponsor? An example is Michael J. Fox is champion for Parkinson’s disease.

 

Part 3: Fact Sheet

 

Using the information recorded on the template in Parts 1 and 2, develop a 1-page fact sheet that you could use to communicate with a policymaker/legislator or a member of their staff for this healthcare issue. Be sure to address the following:

 

Summarize why this healthcare issue is important and should be included in the agenda for legislation.

 

Justify the role of the nurse in agenda setting for healthcare issues.

NURS6050 Policy and Advocacy for Improving Population Health

 

Week 4 Assignment  

 

Legislation Grid and Testimony/Advocacy Statement

 

As a nurse, how often have you thought to yourself, If I had anything to do about it, things would work a little differently? Increasingly, nurses are beginning to realize that they do, in fact, have a role and a voice.

 

Many nurses encounter daily experiences that motivate them to take on an advocacy role in hopes of impacting policies, laws, or regulations that impact healthcare issues of interest. Of course, doing so means entering the less familiar world of policy and politics. While many nurses do not initially feel prepared to operate in this space effectively, the reward is the opportunity to shape and influence future health policy.

 

To Prepare:

 

Select a bill that has been proposed (not one that has been enacted) using the congressional websites provided in the Learning Resources.

 

The Assignment: (1- to 2-page Legislation Grid; 1-page Legislation Testimony/Advocacy Statement)

 

Be sure to add a title page, an introduction, purpose statement, and a conclusion. This is an APA paper.

 

Part 1: Legislation Grid

 

Based on the health-related bill (proposed, not enacted) you selected, complete the Legislation Grid Template. Be sure to address the following:

 

Determine the legislative intent of the bill you have reviewed.

 

Identify the proponents/opponents of the bill.

 

Identify the target populations addressed by the bill.

 

Where in the process is the bill currently? Is it in hearings or committees?

 

Part 2: Legislation Testimony/Advocacy Statement

 

Based on the health-related bill you selected, develop a 1-page Legislation Testimony/Advocacy Statement that addresses the following:

 

Advocate a position for the bill you selected and write testimony in support of your position.

 

Describe how you would address the opponent to your position. Be specific and provide examples.

 

At least 2 outside resources and 2-3 course specific resources are used.

 

By Day 7 of Week 4

NURS6050 Policy and Advocacy for Improving Population Health

 

Week 6 Assignment  

 

Regulation for Nursing Practice Staff Development Meeting

 

Nursing is a very highly regulated profession. There are over 100 boards of nursing and national nursing associations throughout the United States and its territories. Their existence helps regulate, inform, and promote the nursing profession. With such numbers, it can be difficult to distinguish between BONs and nursing associations, and overwhelming to consider various benefits and options offered by each.

 

Both boards of nursing and national nursing associations have significant impacts on the nurse practitioner profession and scope of practice. Understanding these differences helps lend credence to your expertise as a professional. In this Assignment, you will practice the application of such expertise by communicating a comparison of boards of nursing and professional nurse associations. You will also share an analysis of your state board of nursing.

 

To Prepare:

 

Assume that you are leading a staff development meeting on regulation for nursing practice at your healthcare organization or agency.

 

Review the NCSBN and ANA websites to prepare for your presentation.

 

The Assignment: (8- to 9-slide PowerPoint presentation)

 

Develop a 8- to 9-slide PowerPoint Presentation that addresses the following:

 

Describe the differences between a board of nursing and a professional nurse association.

 

Describe the board for your specific region/area.

 

Who is on the board?

 

How does one become a member of the board?

 

Describe at least one state regulation related to general nurse scope of practice.

 

How does this regulation influence the nurse’s role?

 

How does this regulation influence delivery, cost, and access to healthcare?

 

Describe at least one state regulation related to Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs).

 

How does this regulation influence the nurse’s role?

 

How does this regulation influence delivery, cost, and access to healthcare?

 

Has there been any change to the regulation within the past 5 years? Explain. 

 

Include Speaker Notes on Each Slide (except on the title page and reference page)

NURS6050 Policy and Advocacy for Improving Population Health

 

Week 8 Assignment  

 

Advocating for the Nursing Role in Program Design and Implementation

 

As their names imply, the honeyguide bird and the honey badger both share an affinity for honey. Honeyguide birds specialize in finding beehives but struggle to access the honey within. Honey badgers are well-equipped to raid beehives but cannot always find them. However, these two honey-loving species have learned to collaborate on an effective means to meet their objectives. The honeyguide bird guides honey badgers to newly discovered hives. Once the honey badger has ransacked the hive, the honey guide bird safely enters to enjoy the leftover honey.

 

Much like honeyguide birds and honey badgers, nurses and health professionals from other specialty areas can—and should—collaborate to design effective programs. Nurses bring specialties to the table that make them natural partners to professionals with different specialties. When nurses take the requisite leadership in becoming involved throughout the healthcare system, these partnerships can better design and deliver highly effective programs that meet objectives.

 

In this Assignment, you will practice this type of leadership by advocating for a healthcare program. Equally as important, you will advocate for a collaborative role of the nurse in the design and implementation of this program. To do this, assume you are preparing to be interviewed by a professional organization/publication regarding your thoughts on the role of the nurse in the design and implementation of new healthcare programs.

 

To Prepare:

 

Review the Resources and reflect on your thinking regarding the role of the nurse in the design and implementation of new healthcare programs.

 

Select a healthcare program within your practice and consider the design and implementation of this program.

 

Reflect on advocacy efforts and the role of the nurse in relation to healthcare program design and implementation.

 

The Assignment: (2–4 pages)

 

In a 2- to 4-page paper, create an interview transcript of your responses to the following interview questions:

 

Tell us about a healthcare program, within your practice. What are the costs and projected outcomes of this program?

 

Who is your target population?

 

What is the role of the nurse in providing input for the design of this healthcare program? Can you provide examples?

 

What is your role as an advocate for your target population for this healthcare program? Do you have input into design decisions? How else do you impact design?

 

What is the role of the nurse in healthcare program implementation? How does this role vary between design and implementation of healthcare programs? Can you provide examples?

 

Who are the members of a healthcare team that you believe are most needed to implement a program? Can you explain why?

 

By Day 7 of Week 8

 

Submit your interview transcript.

NURS6050 Policy and Advocacy for Improving Population Health

 

Week 10 Assignment  

 

Assessing a Healthcare Program/Policy Evaluation

 

Program/policy evaluation is a valuable tool that can help strengthen the quality of programs/policies and improve outcomes for the populations they serve. Program/policy evaluation answers basic questions about program/policy effectiveness. It involves collecting and analyzing information about program/policy activities, characteristics, and outcomes. This information can be used to ultimately improve program services or policy initiatives.

 

Nurses can play a very important role assessing program/policy evaluation for the same reasons that they can be so important to program/policy design. Nurses bring expertise and patient advocacy that can add significant insight and impact. In this Assignment, you will practice applying this expertise and insight by selecting an existing healthcare program or policy evaluation and reflecting on the criteria used to measure the effectiveness of the program/policy.

 

To Prepare:

 

Review the Healthcare Program/Policy Evaluation Analysis Template provided in the Resources.

 

Select an existing healthcare program or policy evaluation or choose one of interest to you.

 

Review community, state, or federal policy evaluation and reflect on the criteria used to measure the effectiveness of the program or policy described.

 

The Assignment: (2–3 pages)

 

Based on the program or policy evaluation you selected, complete the Healthcare Program/Policy Evaluation Analysis Template. Be sure to address the following:

 

Describe the healthcare program or policy outcomes.

 

How was the success of the program or policy measured?

 

How many people were reached by the program or policy selected?

 

How much of an impact was realized with the program or policy selected?

 

At what point in program implementation was the program or policy evaluation conducted?

 

What data was used to conduct the program or policy evaluation?

 

What specific information on unintended consequences was identified?

 

What stakeholders were identified in the evaluation of the program or policy? Who would benefit most from the results and reporting of the program or policy evaluation? Be specific and provide examples.

 

Did the program or policy meet the original intent and objectives? Why or why not?

 

Would you recommend implementing this program or policy in your place of work? Why or why not?

 

Identify at least two ways that you, as a nurse advocate, could become involved in evaluating a program or policy after 1 year of implementation.

 

By Day 7 of Week 10

 

Submit your completed healthcare program/policy evaluation analysis.

Week 11 Assignment  

 

Global Healthcare Comparison Matrix and Narrative Statement

 

Note: This Assignment is due on Day 5 of Week 11.

 

If you talk about a possible poor health outcome, do you believe that outcome will occur? Do you believe eye contact and personal contact should be avoided?

 

You would have a difficult time practicing as a nurse if you believed these to be true. But they are very real beliefs in some cultures.

 

Differences in cultural beliefs, subcultures, religion, ethnic customs, dietary customs, language, and a host of other factors contribute to the complex environment that surrounds global healthcare issues. Failure to understand and account for these differences can create a gulf between practitioners and the public they serve.

 

In this Assignment, you will examine a global health issue and consider the approach to this issue by the United States and by one other country.

 

To Prepare:

 

Review the World Health Organization’s (WHO) global health agenda and select one global health issue to focus on for this Assignment.

 

Select at least one additional country to compare to the U.S. for this Assignment.

 

Reflect on how the global health issue you selected is approached in the U.S. and in the additional country you selected.

 

Review and download the Global Health Comparison Matrix provided in the Resources.

 

The Assignment: (1- to 2-page Global Health Comparison Matrix; 1-page Plan for Social Change)

 

Part 1: Global Health Comparison Matrix

 

Focusing on the country you selected and the U.S., complete the Global Health Comparison Matrix. Be sure to address the following:

 

Consider the U.S. national/federal health policies that have been adapted for the global health issue you selected from the WHO global health agenda. Compare these policies to the additional country you selected for study.

 

Explain the strengths and weaknesses of each policy.

 

Explain how the social determinants of health may impact the global health issue you selected. Be specific and provide examples.

 

Using the WHO’s Organization’s global health agenda as well as the results of your own research, analyze how each country’s government addresses cost, quality, and access to the global health issue selected.

 

Explain how the health policy you selected might impact the health of the global population. Be specific and provide examples.

 

Explain how the health policy you selected might impact the role of the nurse in each country.
