Policies are constantly reviewed and considered to help improve the federal, state, or local health care systems. Each one has the potential to affect each of us on a daily basis, so careful consideration must be given when policies are proposed. It is important to understand the process of how a topic eventually becomes a policy.
Choose a health care topic for which a policy might be created, OR choose a specific policy that has already been passed into law. Be sure to look ahead and choose a policy topic that will be suitable for both parts of this assignment, due in Weeks Three, Four, and Five. Your topic should be rather narrow. For example, "women's health" would be too broad, but a policy to encourage women to get mammograms would be narrow enough to apply the policy creation concepts discussed later in the class.
