Issues Paper Guidelines
The purpose of the Issues Paper is to allow each student an opportunity to explore a specific health care policy issue, and propose current legislative policy options and strategies to address the issue (Unit III objectives).
Read Chapters 7 & 8 in Mason, Leavitt, & Chaffee (2014). The sample paper on pages 58-64 and the matrix/scorecard on page 54 are to be used as a guide only. The sample provided will look different from yours as you have different grading criteria (see rubric). From the sample paper, you cannot use the “do nothing or incremental change” options.
Based on your education, work experiences, and human nature, most of you probably already have opinions about many health care policy issues. A big challenge is to set aside your personal and professional opinions when analyzing health care policies in order to review the facts objectively. You need to gather the facts before you draw conclusions about the value of a policy.
Students will select a healthcare policy issue with two bills in the current Congress. These bills can be at the state and/or federal level.
Students will introduce the policy issue and define the issue. Problem identification provides a reason for the work and sense of direction for your evidence gathering. Avoid including possible solutions in your problem identification/definition.
You will then provide background information including societal, economic, ethical, legal and political factors surrounding the issue.
Students will write a one sentence issue statement (can be written as a sentence or a question).
You will also identify stakeholders, including those who will support the issue and those who will oppose the issue.
Students will identify at least two policy goals/objectives that describe what kind of policy would most benefit the issue.
In addition, students will identify two bills currently in Congress that could benefit the issue you have identified. They can be two different ways to accomplish your policy goals – but might not be the exact answer to your question. You are looking to see what might be available already, or what changes or revisions you might need to ask your legislator to include in the bill the best meet your policy goals.
Students will also identify at least 2 options or evaluative criteria and provide rationale for these criteria. Your evaluation criteria will depend on your policy issue. There is a link posted in the unit ‘Resources’ with examples of policy evaluation criteria options.
