The Nurse as Advocate

In a Microsoft Word document of 5-6 pages formatted in APA style, you will describe the advocacy process. Whether nurses are advocating for their patients, health care, and/or policies that improve people’s lives, the advocacy processes have commonalities that transcend the subject of their advocacy. There are also differences, although these differences may be more nuanced than obvious.

Review the following chapters from your course textbook:

  • Taking Action: Nurse, Educator, and Legislator: My Journey to the Delaware Senate
  • Taking Action: A Nurse in the Board Room

Respond to the following questions based on your readings:

  • Describe what you believe to be the drivers for each of the individual advocates.
    • What factors led the individuals to become advocates?
  • Discuss the challenges that each of the individuals identified in their writings.
  • Analyze these drivers and challenges and compare them with your own experience to date as an advocate.
  • In what ways do you believe you can expand your advocacy skills within the next five years?

On a separate reference page, cite all sources using APA format. Please note that the title and reference pages should not be included in the total page count of your paper.

Submission Details:

  • Name your document SU_NSG4068_W5_Project_LastName_FirstInitial.doc.
  • Submit your document to the Submissions area by the due date assigned.

Nurses as Change Agents in the Community

In the chapter, “How Community-Based Organizations Are Addressing Nursing’s Role in Transforming Health Care,” the authors describe the community as the focus of advocacy action for change. They list a series of questions that help community teams develop organizing principles to guide their interventions, and the aim is to attack social determinants of health to make community change.

Suppose a community team identifies lack of access to exercise modalities as a public health issue. If the team were to determine that pedestrian walkways need to be constructed:

  • Discuss at least two factors that would facilitate the development of the walkways.
  • Discuss at least two factors that would hinder the development of the walkways. 
    • Include in your discussions ways that the team might work to overcome those hindrances.

Reaching out a Solution

In a Microsoft Word document of 4-5 pages formatted in APA style, you will develop a process for advocating about an issue as a nurse, from identifying a problem that needs to be solved through articulating a process for doing so.

This assignment consists of answering each of the questions listed below from the “Political Analysis and Strategies” chapter of your course textbook. Write each question as a new topic area; then follow with a paragraph or two to answer the question.

Let us assume that you are a school nurse in a high school. At a recent school athletic event, a spectator suffered a cardiac arrest in the stands. A coach of the home team went into the high school to fetch the automatic emergency defibrillator (AED) only to find out that it was not readily available. In the meantime, an emergency squad arrived and resuscitated the spectator. On Monday morning, you learn of the absence of the AED only to find out that it had been locked in the custodian’s closet. Reflect on the following questions outlined in the “Political Analysis and Strategies” chapter

  • What is the issue?
  • Is it my issue, and can I solve it?
  • Is this the real issue or merely a symptom of a larger one?
  • Does it need an immediate solution, or can it wait?
  • Is it likely to go away by itself?
  • Can I risk ignoring it?
  • What are the possible solutions? Are there risks to these solutions?
  • What steps would you need to take in order to solve the issue?
  • Does anyone else at the school need to be involved in the solution?
  • Where is the power leverage in the school to reach the preferred solution?
    • Reaching a solution requires the use of power vested in the nurse. Review Box 9-1 (Sources of Power) and determine which type(s) of power the school nurse has in this situation. State your reasons for your answer.

On a separate reference page, cite all sources using APA format. Please note that the title and reference pages should not be included in the total page count of your paper.

Submission Details:

  • Name your document SU_NSG4068_W4_Project_LastName_FirstInitial.doc.
  • Submit your document to the Submissions Area by the due date assigned.

TASK

Post your initial response to the  topic below.

Advance Care Planning and Analysis

Read the section titled “Reflective Practice: Pants on Fire” from the chapter “Health Policy, Politics, and Professional Ethics” and address the questions below.

  • How do you judge Palin’s quote below, as an effective strategy to oppose Democrats’ plans for health care reform or unethical scaremongering? 
    • “And who will suffer the most when they ration care? The sick, the elderly, and the disabled, of course. The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama’s death panel so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their level of productivity in society, whether they are worthy of health care. Such a system is downright evil.” 
  • Reflect on what informs your judgment: commitment to advance care planning, analysis of facts, and/or political party loyalties?
  • Is it right for nurses to endorse health reform legislation even if the legislation is not perfect?
  • Does this apply to the recently failed American Health Care Act?

    • How does your nursing experience influence the advocacy position that you take on the AHCA?

TASK

Post your initial response to one of the two topics below

The ACA or the AHCA: Imperfect Solutions to Increasing Access to Health Care?

This week’s discussion focuses on the federal government’s role in protecting the public’s health using the ACA and current efforts to “repeal and replace” the ACA. Please note that the government’s role in protecting the public’s health did not begin with the ACA. In the late 1800s, Lilian Wald brought health care to the community. And in 1965, Congress passed bills authorizing Medicare and Medicaid. Since 1965, Congress has expanded government-sponsored health care to pregnant women and children.

Topic 1

  • Compare the current provisions in the ACA with those in the failed first version of the AHCA.
  • Share your opinions about why the AHCA failed in the first attempt at passage.

Topic 2

In addition, subscribe to the “HealthCetera” podcast and listen to the podcast weekly. This is a production of WBAI, free speech radio of Pacifica Foundation Radio in New York City. Diana Mason and Barbara Glickstein are founders and codirectors of the Center for Health Media Policy (CHMP). Both are recognized as experts in media, nursing, health, and health policy. They have a longstanding relationship as producers and moderators of HealthCetera, a live, award-winning radio program on public radio and iTunes. They are bloggers for Disruptive Women in Health Care and for the American Journal of Nursing (AJN). The CHMP is an interdisciplinary initiative for advancing the health of the public and healthy public policies through media, research, education, and public forums.

  • Listen to a podcast related to the ACA or AHCA.
  • Describe how you identified advocacy for the topic in the podcast, include examples.

Nurse’s Role in Influencing the Legislative Process

In a Microsoft Word document of 2-3 pages formatted in APA style, you will answer three questions related to your opportunity as a nurse and an advocate. The first two questions relate to influencing a bill that is traveling through the legislative process. The third question refers you to the social determinants of health and asks you to think specifically on your role as a nurse in influencing social determinants of health.

Answer the following questions:

  • What parts of the lawmaking process does a nurse have an opportunity to influence the final bill passage?
  • List at least two ways that this influence can take place. In your opinion, would one way be preferable over the other?
  • Reviewing the social determinants of health, select one to respond to this question:
    • What role can nurses play in promoting health status through policy changes directly affecting this social determinant?

Write each question as a new topic area and then follow with a paragraph or two to answer the question. You may find it necessary to search for answers to the questions outside of the assigned reading.

On a separate reference page, cite all sources using APA format. Please note that the title and reference pages should not be included in the total page count of your paper.

Submission Details:

  • Name your document SU_NSG4068_W2_Project_LastName_FirstInitial.doc.
