The purpose of this assignment is to describe the roles and responsibilities of health care management in addressing contemporary health care issues.
Consider the health care environment in which you currently work or plan to work, and select a specific health care organization within that setting to focus on for this assignment. Possible options could include an urban emergency center, a public health clinic, or a rural hospital. Research a current health care issue within your selected organization and any proposed initiatives to mitigate its impact on the community. Examples of current health care issues include the opioid crisis, the cost of prescription drugs, and coverage for health care, etc.
Address the following questions in a 1,500–1,750 word paper about how you would proceed in implementing initiatives to address the health care issue:
- Describe the major financial and physical issues.
- Discuss the major demographic populations, providers, and regulatory bodies affected.
- Describe the major ethical considerations in the context of a Christian worldview perspective regarding the issue from a patient/family, patient care provider, and regulatory body perspective. Address the implications for carrying out work within the public arena with compassion, justice, and concern for the common good.
- Based on your analysis, discuss how you would proceed in implementing initiatives to address the identified health care issue. Identify two possible solutions that could be used to meet the needs of the identified stakeholders.
