Question Description

Need help with my Nursing question - I’m studying for my class.

Assignment:

Population Health Advocacy

Human trafficking, extreme poverty, preventable diseases, the opioid crisis and the lack of adequate low-income housing are a few current societal concerns worthy of social change. Nurses and healthcare leaders are in a good position to shape and influence health care policy.

Think of a cause you believe in strongly. Access the website of your elected officials either at the local, state, or federal level using the following link: https://www.usa.gov/elected-officials/ or use the website of your choice. Explore some of the issues and committees your legislators are involved in and select at least one that interest you or align with your beliefs. You may also contact your legislator’s office and speak to his or her legislative assistant by calling the U.S. Capitol switchboard operator at (202) 224-3121 for the Senate and (202) 225-3121 for the House. Legislator assistants are very knowledgeable about the legislator’s agenda and can provide a wealth of information.

This assignment will be at least 1500 words or more. This week reflect on advocacy, collaborative partnerships with other health care practitioners and stakeholders, and the policy making process and write a paper that addresses the following:

  • Describe the policy issue, policy problem of interest or a particular bill that your legislator has introduced
  • Elaborate on why the policy matters and what you can possibly do to strengthen the policy?
  • Briefly define the role you would play as an advocate for the healthcare consumer and healthcare professionals.
  • Explain how the policy impacts the public at large or a particular population.
  • What stakeholders would you collaborate with to promote the cause?

HEALTHCARE POLICE AND ECONOMICS

Introduction
California is, among various states in the US, taking action to the spread of respiratory
infection caused by a new coronavirus, also known as COVID-19. The virus was first
identified in Wuhan, China about two months ago. Over time, the virus has being reported in
various countries and states around the world, which led to World Health Organization
(WHO) declaring it as a global pandemic (WHO, 2020). Concurrently, California is keenly
working with healthcare providers, health facilities, and local governments across the state, as
well as the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the White House to prepare
and keep Californians safe from the respiratory illness (California Department of Public
Health, 2020).
Consequently, California’s Senator, Dianne Feinstein, has been at the forefront in
pushing for the Second Coronavirus response legislation that is focused on aiding American
households facing asperity due to the viral infection (Feinstein, 2020). The first Coronavirus
response bill was passed by Congress, which funded government agencies assisting to
impede the spread of the disease. The first Coronavirus response bill was ambiguous in
outlining how the fund would be used to address social components that will shape
population health in the midst of the global pandemic. Nevertheless, the second Coronavirus
Response bill has been refined to encompass free Coronavirus testing for every individual,
even those without healthcare insurance.
Furthermore, the bill obliges companies to offer a paid sick leave in the course of
public health emergencies. This means that employees are allowed to stay at home and seek
healthcare services in case they are sick or a loved is sick. This is a preventive measure to
impede the spread of the illness. Additionally, Feinstein (2020) asserts that the bill will
strengthen food security programs such as food stamps, nutrition programs and food banks
