Nursing Leadership Health Policy
The IOM (Institute of Medicine) Future of Nursing report calls for an increase in leadership from nurses at all levels. One way nurses demonstrate their role as a leader is through public policy change. A leader does not always carry an official title or position but demonstrates leadership through the work and the stance he/she takes to make a change for the good of others. Nurses have been noted by the Gallop poll year after year as the most trusted professionals.
This assignment requires thought about a public policy that is needed or needs to be changed that relates to nursing healthcare and/or the public. Policy changes can occur by working with members of your legislature and state or national nurses associations to introduce a new bill and/or change to a current law in your state or federal government.
Examples of public policy includes any component of the current legislation governing health care Medicare part D Medicaid nursing regulation medication technicians etc.
In 750-1000 words propose a health policy change (that is currently a bill a law or may not exist at all) at the state or federal level that you believe needs to change and why.
1.The policy must NOT be a clinical care policy for individual care. The policy involved may include public or community health legislative or regulatory professional organization (nursing-oriented) advanced nursing practice health plan or hospital plan.
2.Include a specific section for the exact wording for the bill or change in wording of the law.
3.Include the plan for the implementation of your policy development to lobbying for passage to next steps after passage.
4.Discuss who would be the champion for the bill/law change from your state advocates (legislators federal legislators local or national state nursing organizations). Are these individuals also influential in making changes occur? Did you vote for the individual in office that you want to help you make this change?
(State to be used is N.J.)

Week 4 Discussion Long-Term Care in the U.S. Determine the average daily cost of nursing home care in your state. Discuss the funding options (public and private) that exist to pay for long-term care. What policy and financing recommendations would you make to ensure that long-term care is available for everyone who needs the services in the U.S.? Please justify your answer. Rationing of Healthcare Services Healthcare services can be rationed by governmental rationing or by allowing those who can afford the services to purchase the services. If you were the chairperson of a medical ethics committee faced with the decision concerning which of the following patients would receive a heart transplant, what decision would you make and what justification would you give to the families of each of the patients for making that decision? Patient 1: A seventy-six-year-old nonsmoker with good pulmonary and renal function is a good candidate for a heart transplant, and his life expectancy without the transplant is one month. The patient has the resources to pay cash for the transplant procedure and follow-up care. Patient 2: A forty-six-year-old unemployed auto worker with a history of alcohol use and smoking suffered a heart attack and will die within one month if he does not receive a heart transplant. The patient does not have health insurance, nor does he have the resources to pay for the procedure.
Prepare two educational handouts (two pages each), one for community members and patients and one for health care providers, that provide information about common bacteria or viruses and how to reduce the risk of infection.
By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the following course competencies and assessment criteria:
Search the Capella library and the Internet for scholarly and professional peer-reviewed articles on food-borne illness or virus prevention. You will need at least three articles to use as support for your work on this assessment. In addition, look for statistics on cases of food-borne illness or influenza in your community. Sites such as the CDC, WHO, and state or public health departments provide the most current and reliable data.
Your employer is hosting a Healthy Mind and Body Fair in your community. Your manager has asked for your help in creating educational materials about food-borne illnesses like E.coli or viruses such as influenza. The goal is to provide information about how to reduce the risk of infection. You have been asked to create two informational handouts on the same topic:1.One handout is for participants (community members, patients) that raises awareness about the transmission of common bacteria or viruses and how to prevent the spread of these common infections. Consider health literacy levels when preparing the handout for non-medical populations.2.The second handout is directed at allied health care providers. This material should provide a higher level of information and detail about the subject.
Each handout should cover the following:Provide information about the illness and transmission.Provide recent statistics of cases in the community, with sources noted.Describe the scope of illness (symptoms, severity, adverse outcomes).Describe both treatment and prevention options, with an emphasis on prevention. Relay any new research or treatment modalities.Include information your readers will want to refer to in the future. This includes Web sites or tips for finding additional information or additional resources.
Consider the reader when creating your handouts, and be creative!
Format the handouts as follows:Break up content into short paragraphs.Use bullet points and lists whenever possible.Use sub-headings to isolate different topics within the documents.Remember, say no more than what is necessary; the urge to say too much can ruin a good handout.
Each handout should meet the following criteria:Contain 500 words (2 pages).Must be readable, concise, with a logical ordering of ideas.Include a minimum of three references. (These must be recent, from within the past five years.) The same resources can be used for both handouts.Provide adequate documentation of ideas and appropriate APA citation of relevant literature.Assignment submission should include one complete document, prepared as follows: ?Title page for the participant handout.?Participant handout.?Reference page for the participant handout.?Title page for the allied health care provider handout.?Allied health care provider handout.?Reference page for the provider handout.
