This assignment will be a collaborative learning team project. The instructor will assign each student to a CLC group.
Scenario: You are in a committee of legislators reviewing the Universal Health Care Act presented by former President William Clinton, located at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/BILLS-103hr3600ih/pdf/BILLS-103hr3600ih.pdf
After reviewing the Universal Health Care Act, the committee is tasked with providing an analysis of the ethical considerations of the Act and the implications for accessibility of health care to all American citizens. The analysis should encompass:
1) The history and social context of the Act.
2) Viewpoints for and against the enactment of this act including supporting evidence for both sides.
3) Major frameworks in public health ethics that could be applied to this issue.
4) Recommendations the committee would suggest to strengthen the policy.
The analysis should be presented in a PowerPoint presentation (12-15 slides).
While APA format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected and in-text citations and references should be presented using APA documentation guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
This assignment uses a grading rubric. Instructors will be using the rubric to grade the assignment; therefore, students should review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the assignment criteria and expectations for successful completion of the assignment.
At the time of submission of the assignment, each member will also complete the “HLT 600 Committee Peer Review.” This document will be used in determining individual group participation as well as successful management and completion of project deadlines.
