Unit 2 Assignment Midterm Assignment
a bit closer at some of the “hot
topics” for nurses in the workplace and the workforce as these areas are
facing some significant changes in the near future ~ the need for change in
these areas are being driven by the patient outcomes and financial impact. Many of us are resistant to change because
we don’t know what it may bring ~ but things are changing ~ So, let’s embrace it! However, let’s look at some strategies to
bring about change in an orderly fashion in the workplace.
We will be
reading a bit more about innovations to address areas facing changes as the
semester goes on . Some of these include
the emergence of new models of care such as telemonitoring/telehealth, and the
emerging role of the advance practice nurse.

NUR4837 Healthcare Policy, Advocacy, and the Political Process Unit Assignment 3 Health care reform Assignment 3: Exploring Health Care Reform The idea of “insurance for all” resulted in healthcare reform. You’ll have an opportunity to review in a small way what this reform entails and the implications of signing up for insurance through the “market place” ~ Choose a state, but understand the implication of reform can be different from state to state! The other side of the coin is what is going on in the current administration ~ In June, President Trump signed an executive order to make health costs more transparent~ I have included reviews from CBS news and Keiser News ~ they don’t necessarily see eye to eye on this issue… President Trump signed an executive order Monday requiring the cost of health care procedures to be published before patients receive the services, a sweeping overhaul of the health care industry, if implemented.
Take a look at Keiser News and tell us what you think: https://khn.org/morning-breakout/proposal-to-force-insurers-hospitals-to-disclose-secretly-negotiated-prices-stirs-such-vocal-opposition-it-may-get-dropped/ (Links to an external site.)Link (Links to an external site.)
