Healthcare Policy Assignment



The purpose of this discussion (Healthcare Policy Assignment) is to reflect on opportunities to impact healthcare policies while further developing your own political competency using Warner’s article (2003) as a guide.


Read the Warner (2003) article (located in Student Learning Resources). Reflect upon the development of your political competency and address the following:

  1. Consider a time when there was an issue related to healthcare policy in your local, regional, or national community. If you pursued an opportunity to address the issue, describe the results. If you did not pursue the opportunity, describe the reasons.
  2. Propose an area of your political competency that needs further development and action you could take to become more politically competent to impact your selected population.
