Assignment: Agenda Comparison Grid and Fact Sheet or Talking Points Brief

It may seem to you that healthcare has been a national topic of debate among political leaders for as long as you can remember.

Healthcare has been a policy item and a topic of debate not only in recent times but as far back as the administration of the second U.S. president, John Adams. In 1798, Adams signed legislation requiring that 20 cents per month of a sailor’s paycheck be set aside for covering their medical bills. This represented the first major piece of U.S. healthcare legislation, and the topic of healthcare has been woven into presidential agendas and political debate ever since.

As a healthcare professional, you may be called upon to provide expertise, guidance and/or opinions on healthcare matters as they are debated for inclusion into new policy. You may also be involved in planning new organizational policy and responses to changes in legislation. For all of these reasons you should be prepared to speak to national healthcare issues making the news.

In this Assignment, you will analyze recent presidential healthcare agendas. You also will prepare a fact sheet to communicate the importance of a healthcare issue and the impact on this issue of recent or proposed policy.

To Prepare:

· Review the agenda priorities of the  current/sitting U.S. president and the two previous presidential administrations.

· Select an issue related to healthcare that was addressed by each of the last three U.S. presidential administrations.

· Reflect on the focus of their respective agendas, including the allocation of financial resources for addressing the healthcare issue you selected.

· Consider how you would communicate the importance of a healthcare issue to a legislator/policymaker or a member of their staff for inclusion on an agenda.

The Assignment: (1- to 2-page Comparison Grid, 1-Page Analysis, and 1-page Fact Sheet)

Part 1: Agenda Comparison Grid

Use the Agenda Comparison Grid Template found in the Learning Resources and complete the Part 1: Agenda Comparison Grid based on the current/sitting U.S. president and the two previous presidential administrations and their agendas related to the public health concern you selected. Be sure to address the following:

· Identify and provide a brief description of the population health concern you selected and the factors that contribute to it.

· Describe the administrative agenda focus related to the issue you selected.

· Identify the allocations of financial and other resources that the current and two previous presidents dedicated to this issue.

· Explain how each of the presidential administrations approached the issue.

(A draft of Part 1: Agenda Comparison Grid should be posted to the Module 1 Discussion Board by Day 3 of Week 1.)

E-Cigarette Vaping among youth and young adults. (2000 to present)

Describe the Population Health concern you selected and the factors that contribute to it.

E-Cigarette vaping is increasingly common among youths, and clinicians, families are often unsure how to discuss the epidemic with the teens. The most common type of E-Cigarette is "Pod Mod"- JUUL. JUUL is an E-Cigarette or electronic cigarette, which means it vaporizes nicotine (instead of burning it like traditional cigarettes) and is battery charged. Vaping has become one of the most significant public health issues, and at the center of it is San Francisco-based e-cigarette company, Juul, which has gained popularity, especially among teenagers for its sleek design and easy-to-use pods, JUUL devices are small, rechargeable,

battery-powered e-cigarettes which aerosolize liquid solutions containing glycerol, propylene glycol, natural oils, extracts and flavor, nicotine, and benzoic acid (JUUL, 2019). Other factors that contribute to the use of E-Cigarette are user-friendly function, desirable characteristics, and the capability to be used discreetly in places where smoking is forbidden. The U.S. market in 2015 first introduces the E-cigarette, which first enters the U.S. market in 2006 as a smoking cessation tool and a safer alternative (Matthew, Tracy, Lindsay, 2019). Since the introduction o the E-Cigarette in 2015, it has been a public health concern that draws more attention to the youths, the families, states, Federal level. Short term adverse effect associated with E-Cigarette includes throat and mouth irritation, headache, dry cough, nausea and cardiovascular effects of elevated heart rate, diastolic blood pressure and the respiratory problem with long term effect of lung cancer as a result of reducing the pulmonary immune function (Matthew, Tracy, Lindsay, 2019).
