The attachment I included has a sample paper, rubric, and guidelines that were given to me by my instructor.
I also included the guidelines below. The provision i chose is smoking cessation, so that will be the topic.
We are currently in the midst of an historic time for health care reform. President Trump and Congress are considering repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, which is considered by many to be the most significant piece of national health care legislation passed since Medicare and Medicaid were created.
Visit: http://kff.org/health-reform/fact-sheet/summary-of-the-affordable-care-act/ and spend some time exploring the site to learn about the Affordable Care Act and what it does and doesnt do. Id also recommending visiting this site: https://www.cbo.gov/publication/52752 in which a nonpartisan analysis of the potential impact of the proposed American Health Care Act may be found.
There is also a lot of information available at kff.org regarding health policy, financing, reform, etc. and you may find this site useful when researching your paper.
One of the stated goals of the Affordable Care Act is to make preventive care more accessible and affordable for many Americans. Choose a specific provision (MY PROVISION IS SMOKING CESSATION) of the Affordable Care Act (and make sure to be clear about the provision youve chosen – for example, dont simply say birth control because I wont know what you mean by that) and provide an analysis of how it made preventive care more accessible and/or affordable for Americans, and what might be the impact on the population of interest if this provision is repealed. What impact would repeal of this provision have on nurses who provide care to the population of interest?
NOTE:- My provision is smoking cessation. This link should be of some help.
Please note: This paper is not about whether you agree or disagree with the Affordable Care Act or whether you are in favor of repeal / replace of the ACA. Its to help you learn more about what is currently happening in our country regarding health policy, and how it might affect the patients you serve and you as a nurse.
