Nurse Patient Ratio At A Federal Level


Formulating a Healthcare Policy 

Worksheet#1 (ungraded)


The purpose of the three ungraded worksheets for this course is to assist the student in identifying the key pieces of information necessary for completing the assignments and meeting the course outcomes.

For this course, the student must first select a policy priority issue. The issue must be a public-health policy issue. Students may not use issues relevant for private organizations or institutions, such as internal policy issues. The goal of this course is to get the student involved in healthcare-policy issues that impact the general public.This will involve a telephone call or meeting with local policymakers such as city, county, and school-board officials. Students are free to work at the state or federal level as well. Students must carefully consider their particular policy issue, applicable level of government involved, course time constraints, and objectives/outcomes of the assignments.

Students are to select a policy issue, research the issueincluding policy analysis, plan the policy, and plan a call or meeting with a policymaker for the purpose of presentingthe issue, proposingrecommendations and asking questions about how change can occur. The student will reflect on the experience, develop plans for follow-up with the policymaker as needed, and consider ways in which advocacy efforts can continue.

It is important that students understand that they are not responsible for ensuring the implementation of their policy issue during this eight-week course. The actual implementation of policy changes can take extended periods of time. The student’s responsibility in this course is to plan a meeting with a policymaker and, based on the student’s research of the policy issue come up with a proposition or recommendation to address the issue and then have an initial meeting with a policymaker, ideally in person but alternatively via telephone, videoconferencing, or use of other technology.

Be sure to examine all three ungraded worksheets and assignments, including scoring rubrics, now. This ungraded worksheet directly relates to and impacts all ungraded worksheets and graded assignments related to this course.
