And welcome to week 2! Week 2 runs from 1/19 to 1/25. This week we are going to focus on population health. As you already know the health care act has a huge section in there about health promotion and chronic care management. Patients are being required to have more responsibility about their health care and participate in preventative care. Whereas, hospitals and healthcare practitioners are having more responsibility in educating our chronic care population so that they can manage their chronic illness more effectively.
For our DB this week, look at your topic of choice and discuss how health policy and initiatives are being used by Advanced Practice Nurses.
The Legislative Matrix [a table] this week helps identify your legislators involved in policy development and dissemination in your area. This week you will develop a Legislative Matrix based on your local and specific legislators in your geographical area. Go out and Google who are your local, state and national legislators for your district/area. Find all of them, not just those related to your topic. This is not a paper but a creative and logical chart identifying the information below. You can just list your sources in the reference page and no need to cite within the boxes for this assignment. ðŸ˜Š
To create a chart, using Microsoft word, go to insert, click on table, then highlight how many columns and rows you may need. You can add more or delete later as needed. View this video for help as well: Inserting a table
