Assignment : Discussion Questions 1 and 2. (2 pages for each question), (4 references for each question at least).
Discussion Question 1
Review the Universal Health Coverage Statement from the WHO. Then, review one or two of the reports from meetings held in 2013 which is available on their website. In these documents, they discuss the relationship between policy and Universal Health Coverage. Explain what they mean by this and reflect upon whether or not this is the same definition used in the United States. Do all of us view this concept in the same way? If not, how do we differ? As you review these materials, reflect upon the visibility of the role of health care providers in this development process.
Discussion Question 2
This week we talked about the core competencies for health profession’s education and looked at nursing informatics and how that area has been guided by development within the profession. Consider the remaining competencies: provide patient-centered care, work in interdisciplinary teams, employ evidence-based practice, and apply quality improvement. Select one of these competencies and describe changes which nursing has made to achieve the competency. Use the South University Library to find peer-reviewed publications which describe the programs and their development or outcome.
