PAPER

The course paper is essentially an application of everything you have learned in the course. Faculty look for an understanding of the material, not merely quoting sources of information. The paper  examines proposed legislation and its impact on health care organizations, providers and consumers.  Please note that the topic for your paper is proposed legislation. (Recently passed legislation does not fall into this category as the objective of the paper is for you to gain a greater understanding of the legislative process.) In other words you will be writing your paper on a bill or resolution that has been introduced into a legislative body. One legislative body with active health-related legislation is the US Congress. (The Maryland General Assembly is another source when it is in session during the spring semester.) To clarify: proposed legislation is a bill or resolution introduced into either the senate or the house of the legislative body. Anything up to and including the signature by the president / governor is proposed legislation.  Analysis and advocacy exist all the way up to the bill signing.  (Just consider the power the executive branch head has through veto or 'pocket veto.')

So how do you begin? The paper is an analysis of proposed health-related legislation. Examine current proposed legislation and choose a health-related bill / resolution for analysis.

  • A good source of current legislation is the US Congress website www.congress.gov . Once on the website, you can search ‘current legislation’ (near the top of the webpage).  A search using the term 'health' is a way to start.  You can also use 'health care' and 'nurse". You will see many bills and resolutions appear, with their titles and bill or resolution numbers listed.  A click on the bill or resolution number will give you a lot of information about the legislation, including a summary and where it is in the legislative process and its sponsors. You should have sufficient information to begin your research and analysis. 
  • A simple internet search of the bill (number included) will help you think about who may be its stakeholders. 
  • Research the health topic to give yourself a basis for analyzing various positions on the bill. Once you have evaluated the various positions, you should determine strategies to support or oppose or amend the bill. You need to include an analysis of the journal articles etc  There is no right or wrong position on any of these bills.  It’s your analysis and resultant reasoning that is important. (This needs to be supported with literature from credible resources.) Spending a significant amount of time researching the bill / resolution, researching the clinical topic and doing an exhaustive literature search will be well worth your time for completing this assignment.
