HCA 430 Week 1 DQ 1 Understanding the Scope of Vulnerable Populations

For more classes visit www.snaptutorial.com

Understanding the Scope of Vulnerable Populations. Review the descriptions of the ten special populations addressed in Chapter 1 of your course textbook. Identify the three groups you feel are most vulnerable. Explain your reasoning for selecting the groups based on: • An analysis of the statistical data/trends related to the populations. How did you use data to determine the three most vulnerable populations? Explain your thought process. • The World Health Organization’s formal definition of “health.” How are the physical, mental, and social aspects of health compromised in these three vulnerable populations in comparison to the others? • The statistical data and the health compromises identified above. Create a list of at least three health service needs for each vulnerable group you identified. ******************************************************** HCA 430 Week 1 DQ 2 Factors Affecting Vulnerability and Assessment of Needs

Factors Affecting Vulnerability and Assessment of Needs. This week’s second discussion forum will focus on two selected groups: • Vulnerable mothers and children • People affected by alcohol and substance abuse Review the video segments titled “Premature Babies: Risks and Costs” (Vulnerable Mothers and Children group) and “Social Cost of Alcohol Abuse” (People Affected by Alcohol and Substance Abuse group) through the Films On Demand database or in the textbook. • For each segment, select three specific factors from Chapter 2 (e.g., age, gender, culture, ethnicity, education, and income) that are present. • Reflecting on your experiences and knowledge gained in previous courses, discuss how these factors relate to the group’s vulnerability. • Based on the selected factors, assess the health care needs that can be inferred for each group. Discuss which approach(es) to care from Chapter 4, Section 4.1 (i.e., preventive, treatment, or long term), might help address them. ******************************************************** HCA 430 Week 2 Assigment Vulnerable Population Summary and Proposed Program

For more classes visit www.snaptutorial.com


This Tutorial contains 2 Papers/PPT Project 1: Alcohol and Substance Abuse Project 2: Suicide and homicide (Prevention) Vulnerable Population Summary and Proposed Program. The first of your two written assignments for the course will provide a beginning framework that you will utilize in the development of your Final Project: a proposal for a community-based program in your area. For this first written assignment, you will select one of the vulnerable groups identified in the text that will serve as your target population of interest throughout the duration of your next written assignment and Final Project. Select one among the following groups from Chapter 1: • Vulnerable mothers and children • Abused individuals • Chronically ill and disabled people • People diagnosed with HIV/AIDS • People diagnosed with mental conditions • Suicide- and homicide-liable people • People affected by alcohol and substance abuse • Indigent and homeless people • Immigrants and refugees • Groups for special consideration (you may propose a different vulnerable population at the consent of the instructor) ******************************************************** HCA 430 Week 2 DQ 1 Social Versus Human Capital

For more classes visit www.snaptutorial.com


Social Versus Human Capital. This week’s first discussion forum will focus on the population of abused individuals. Abuse is a pervasive problem in our society. Although the forms of abuse, as well as the intensity and duration can vary from case to case, each abused person is tasked with dealing with the scars left from the abuse. As you can imagine, this task can be very challenging to say the least. Using research to help you form an opinion, which form of capital (social or human capital) do you feel will have a greater influence over resources accessible to the abused? Discuss which form of capital you would rely on for emotional support and help through difficult times if abused. Explain your rationale. Chapter 3 of the course text defines these terms in more detail. ******************************************************** HCA 430 Week 2 DQ 2 Continuum of Care Evaluation and Analysis For more classes visit www.snaptutorial.com

Continuum of Care Evaluation and Analysis. This week’s second discussion forum focuses on the populations of the chronically ill and the disabled. You may be familiar with the common quote “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” In reality, however, you may know of a person, family, or group who is not receiving adequate preventive or medical care due to a lack of resources and funds. • Choose one specific chronic illness or disability of your choice. • Select two resources in your community that address issues related to the chronic illness/disability and describe the services offered. • Select two national resources that address issues related to the chronic illness/disability and describe the services offered.


• Analyze whether or not the continuum of care services are adequate for the population with the chosen chronic illness/disability. Explain why or why not. ******************************************************** HCA 430 Week 3 Assignment Assessment of Community Level Barriers

This Tutorial contains 2 Papers/PPT Project 1: Alcohol and Substance Abuse Project 2: Suicide and homicide (Prevention) Assessment of Community-Level Barriers. For the second written assignment of the course, you will continue in the design of your proposed model program by demonstrating your understanding of your selected population’s challenges, which negatively impact this group’s health and well-being. Based on this week’s research, conduct an assessment of the barriers, limitations, and other distinguishing features, as they exist within your community. • Prepare a recap of the model program for your community that you originally shared in the week 2 written assignment. As stated in the Week Two directions, changes to the potential program can be made as you research and develop the focus of the program. • Analyze and discuss at least three critical barriers that impact the health and well-being of your chosen group; one must be a micro-level (individual) barrier


that is financial, one must be a macro-level (community/state) barrier that relates to access and funding for care, and the third barrier may be one of your choosing. • Discuss at least one proposed solution for each barrier. Your solution for the micro barrier must include an analysis of various potential funding options (both independent and integrated). Your solution for the macro barrier must include an analysis of financing resources for health care. ******************************************************** HCA 430 Week 3 DQ 1 Cost of Health Care

For more classes visit www.snaptutorial.com

Cost of Health Care. Our health, or the absence of such, can be very expensive. Many vulnerable populations simply do not have private funds available to pay for their care. Relating your research to individuals with mental conditions, select a mental illness of your choice and discuss your response to the following questions: • What public financing resources are available to individuals with this particular mental condition? • What are the eligibility requirements and restrictions to receive these funds? • What happens if eligibility standards/requirements are not met by those with this illness? • Research and discuss two methods of alternative funding for care for this group. What are the benefits and limitations of the methods you discussed? ******************************************************** HCA 430 Week 3 DQ 2 Barriers to Care


For more classes visit www.snaptutorial.com

Barriers to Care. Suicide and homicide are violent actions reported in the news daily. Individuals suffering from abuse, depression, mental disorders, or substance-abuse disorders are at an increased risk for committing suicide or homicide. Factors that contribute to the risk are age, gender, socio-economic status, and race/ethnicity. Additionally, situations that cause extreme life or job stress, such as those seen when a loved one dies or by military personnel, can contribute to the risk. Chapter 6 of your course text highlights barriers to care relating to the vulnerable and this population group in particular. For this discussion: • Locate and share statistical data for your community on annual suicide and homicide rates. • Identify and briefly describe one organizational barrier and one financial barrier relating to the suicide- and homicide-prone. • Create two recommendations on ways each of these barriers can be reduced or eliminated. • Identify two local resources available for suicide- or homicide-prone individuals. Discuss which services are offered and whether the services fully meet the needs of the population. ******************************************************** ********************************************************

HCA 430 Week 4 DQ 1 Economic Dynamics of Health Care Delivery Models

Economic Dynamics of Health Care Delivery Models. After reading Chapter 7 and the required resources for this week, consider the following scenario: HIV Help-Inc., a non-profit organization focusing on the prevention of HIV/AIDS just received a $10 million grant to fund several projects. The organization is currently located in an older building that needs extensive repairs. The organization is using outdated office equipment In addition, one additional staff member is needed in order to keep up with incoming phone calls and requests for presentations and community outreach activities. A portion of the grant - $2 million – is allotted for business improvements which can address one of these three areas: repairs to building, outdated office equipment, and more staff. The remaining $8 million is to be used to further enhance the continuum of care level to provide access to preventive health services. • Section A: Create a cost benefit analysis for an update that will improve the business: structural, office equipment, or staff. You can be creative in determining what the business needs. The cost will use the full amount of funds allotted to this improvement ($2 Million), so you can only improve one of these three needs. • Section B: Create a cost effective analysis to determine how to best spend the $8 million portion of the grant funding on education and other preventive services. ******************************************************** HCA 430 Week 4 DQ 2 Regulatory, Legal, Ethical, and Accreditation Issues in Research

Regulatory, Legal, Ethical, and Accreditation Issues in Research. As highlighted in Chapter 9 of your course text, three research methods are available (descriptive, analytic, and evaluative). Discuss these methods and give one example of how each would be used when conducting research using homeless individuals as subjects. Analyze regulatory, accreditation, ethical, and legal issues and challenges related to each research method. ******************************************************** HCA 430 Week 5 DQ 1 Variations in Approaches to Care

For more classes visit www.snaptutorial.com

Variations in Approaches to Care. Choose a specific culture or ethnicity of an immigrant or refugee population. • Analyze their cultural and social norms. • Discuss how they experience the healthcare system in America. • Include an evaluation of how both the community and market-oriented approaches to health care, as highlighted in Chapter 10 of your text, can assist your chosen culture in getting the care they need.


Provide an analysis of a multidisciplinary approach that can be used to deliver the best care to your population. • Discuss a program in your community, or the nearest large community, that serves immigrants and refugees. Are the services truly accessible to a wide population of immigrants and refugees? Identify one approach which could improve accessibility, cost, or the quality of care for the population. ******************************************************** HCA 430 Week 5 DQ 2 Making a Difference

Making a Difference. Imagine you are a policymaker for your city or town. Based on what you know and what you have learned in this course, what would you modify or improve to make a positive change in the life of a vulnerable group we have not covered in class? Justify whether or not you would consult the vulnerable group when developing programs or policies? Propose a policy you would create to improve health care services accessibility, cost, and quality related to your selected group? ******************************************************** HCA 430 Week 5 Final Project (2 Papers PPT)


For more classes visit www.snaptutorial.com

This Tutorial contains 2 Papers/PPT Project 1:Alcohol and Substance Abuse Project 2: Suicide and homicide (Prevention) Final Project. In the first two written assignments, you selected one vulnerable population in need of a new program or service in your community. In this project, you will finalize the research that allows you to understand elements that go into designing and launching a community service. The Final Project will be written using a persuasive tone, such that you would be able to present it in order to gain community and organizational support for your program. The Final Project must demonstrate an understanding of the reading assignments, class discussions, as well as your research and application of new knowledge. Your project must contain the following elements: • A description of the vulnerable population and why they need assistance in your community. • A description of the health service needs of the vulnerable population you have chosen to serve with your program. • In order to support the need for the service you propose, cite statistical data obtained from your county health department, state health department, and organizations or agencies who serve the vulnerable population. • A description of your proposed community service or program; include the specific service(s) provided and one continuum of care level (prevention, treatment, or long-term care). Explain how the selected service(s) and the continuum of care will impact the chosen population. • Discuss the social and cultural norms of your vulnerable population and how these play a role in the need for the services offered by your program. Describe how the vulnerable population experiences the health care system. Analyze methods your program can use to overcome social and cultural differences. ********************************************************
