Analyzing State Healthcare Policy PART 1: Indicate your choice for the Portfolio Project and your healthcare policy topic. Submit a list of at least three references that will be utilized for research. Format all references according to APA requirements. PART 2: For the Portfolio Project, you will complete a two-part assignment (further explained below). Pretend that you are making an appearance before a community group that is having a policy explained to them for the first time. Imagine that the group has no knowledge of what happens behind the scenes to create and implement a healthcare policy. You will not actually be required to present this to a group but prepare the project so that it would be acceptable for an audience of that nature. The two documents are as follows: 1.A mind map (use the WiseMapping tool, http://www.wisemapping.com/) depicting the essential points and sub-points of your topic. Note: Think of the mind map as a visual outline of your responses to the questions listed below. 2.A narrative explanation that covers the rationale, research, and processes involved in creating this healthcare policy. The narrative essay should serve as the commentary to accompany the mind map if it were being presented to the group mentioned above. Your narrative explanation should be 4-5 pages in length (not including your cover or reference pages). This Portfolio Project will focus on state healthcare policy. Provide information related to the following points: •Explain the initial introduction process of the original policy. •Assess the research that was conducted and/or analyzed to determine the need for the policy. •Discuss how the policy was promoted or lobbied against at the state level. •Review any other state entities currently working toward a similar policy or that have successfully passed a similar policy. Is the process similar or different? Be sure your 4-5-page narrative paper (in addition to your cover or reference pages), follows APA requirements. Note: After you have completed the mind map using the WiseMapping tool, use the “Export” button to export your map as an image file. Then insert this image into the Word document following your cover page and preceding your narrative.
