Health Policy Project: Overview

Objectives

  1. Identify a healthcare policy issue in nursing practice.
  2. Analyze its impact on the health of U.S. citizens and the practice of advanced practice nurses (APRNs).
  3. Gather current policy literature and articles regarding the identified healthcare policy issue.
  4. Disseminate this health policy issue/topic to your peers in written and verbal forms.

Overview

Healthcare policy, at the national and state levels, directly impacts the practice of nurses, nurse leaders, and APRNs. At the federal level, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) brought opportunities (access to care) and challenges (individual mandate/proof of insurance) for U.S. citizens, primary care providers, and healthcare systems. The Future of Nursing, a landmark Institute of Medicine (IOM) report, continues to influence federal and state policies related to scope of practice and collaborative agreements. Become familiar with the details of the ACA legislation and the IOM Report.

Timeline

Week 1

From a list of topics across four categories, select one in each category and submit your choices in order of preference under Assignment 1.3: Choose Your Preferred Topic.

Week 3

Conduct a thorough literature search on the topic. Submit in Assignment 3.1: Healthcare Policy Project: Reference List. Use professional resources and use the Health Sciences Librarian should you need assistance.

Sources to consider:

In the Maryville online library, any article can be obtained through our Interlibrary Loan system for free. It usually takes two to three business days. Anyone can create an account using their ID number in Maryville Library (Links to an external site.).

Week 4

Work on the project outline. Identify the section of the paper in the heading and use bullet points with short phrases to convey ideas/concepts rather than long sentences or paragraphs.

  1. Healthcare Policy Problem
    1. Identify/define the healthcare policy issue/concern.
    2. Identify policies surrounding this healthcare concern.
    3. Have current policies adequately addressed the healthcare issue?
    4. What still needs to happen?
  2. Significance to Nursing/Patient Care
    1. How does this healthcare policy issue threaten patient safety, quality care, and/or access to providers?
    2. Are social determinants of health identified in this healthcare concern?
  3. Synthesis of Literature: Three Themes
    1. What are repeating themes from your analysis of the current literature on health policy? Name three.
    2. What would strengthen or weaken the policy? (That is, is there a better approach/model for this healthcare policy issue that is working, perhaps from another state or another country?)
    3. Who are the stakeholders?
  4. Topic relation to the IOM’s Future of Nursing Report and the ACA
    1. How can nurses influence and manage change (such as education, advocacy, and leadership)?
    2. What has been the federal, state, and/or local response to this healthcare issue (innovations and interventions)?
  5. A Compelling Story
    1. Use current evidence on how the policy failed (such as the opioid epidemic’s impact on families)
  6. Conclusion
    1. Paraphrase the main points.
    2. Recommend a course of action.
    3. Challenge your peers to seek models that work (such as in other states, countries).

Week 5

You  should submit the project outline Assignment 5.1: Outline of Health Care Policy Project.

Work on the final paper and presentation.

Week 6

Work on your final paper and presentation. Use APA formatting on the final paper and include APA headings to identify each section of the paper. Microsoft PowerPoint presentations should use bullet points with short phrases rather than long sentences and add a few photos on slides where appropriate; citations should appear at the bottom of the slide, centered, and in smaller font.

Week 7

You should submit your healthcare policy paper in Assignment 7.1: Healthcare Policy Project: Paper and your presentation in Assignment 7.2: Healthcare Policy Project: Presentation. Upload the final video to Kaltura. (Please see Meetings & Webinars in the Zoom Help Center (Links to an external site.) or Kaltura for Presentations for additional information.)

Week 8

You should post your presentation in Discussion 8.1: Healthcare Policy Project: Presentation Sharing.

Individually, select another classmate’s presentation to evaluate, and submit that evaluation in Assignment 8.1: Project Evaluation.
