Analyze the measures your state and local community
have in place to prepare hospitals for two (2) different types of threats to
public health. Question whether the design of these measures allows for the
sufficient protection of the population in the face of an imminent threat.
Justify your response.
Examine two to three (2-3) changes to the
preparedness policies of your chosen state and federal government agencies.
Determine the significant social, political, or environmental factors that have
influenced these changes. Provide support for your rationale.
Compare and contrast the rational and political models of policy analysis.
Debate the advantages of the model that you believe is most influential in
policymaking. Support your rationale with two (2) specific examples of your
chosen model’s influence.
Suppose you are a health policy analyst for a government contracting agency
that a local hospital has hired to complete a policy analysis. From the third
e-Activity and your textbook, formulate the problem statement for one (1) of
your chosen health policies. Then, outline two (2) additional key steps in the
development of a policy analysis for your client.
