HCA 430 Week 1 DQ 1 Understanding the Scope of Vulnerable Populationse
FOR MORE CLASSES VISIT www.hca430aid.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
FOR MORE CLASSES VISIT www.hca430aid.com 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.hca430aid.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) Once you have selected a group of interest, write a three page paper that covers the following: • Discuss the impact that at least two of the factors below have on the vulnerability of your chosen group: o Age
o Gender o Culture/Ethnicity o Income • Analyze the intersection of social, political, and economic factors affecting vulnerability (must address all three factors). • Draft the design of a new model program, not currently existent within your community. Provide a two- to- three paragraph statement that introduces your proposed community program. This section is tentative and might change as you conduct more research. At a minimum, however, items to address should include: • An explanation of the issues and risk factors experienced by the selected population. • An evaluation of the health needs of the group and a proposed continuum of care level (preventive, treatment, or long-term care) based on the group’s issues, risk factors, and needs. Justify the proposed level with supportive research/evidence. • A description of one to two proposed services your program will include. Your assignment should be a minimum of three pages in length (excluding title and reference pages), and should include a minimum of three scholarly sources cited according to APA guidelines as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
HCA 430 Week 2 DQ 1 Social Versus Human Capital
FOR MORE CLASSES VISIT www.hca430aid.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.hca430aid.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
FOR MORE CLASSES VISIT www.hca430aid.com 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. • Research and analyze the regulatory, legal, ethical, and accreditation requirements and issues for the service(s) offered in your proposed program. Discuss how each will impact the management of the program. Your assignment should be a minimum of three pages in length (excluding title and reference pages) and should include a minimum of three scholarly sources cited according to APA guidelines as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Please note: All assignments in this course are progressive; therefore you should use the same population selected in your Week Two assignment. The Week Two assignment’s contents do not need to be re-submitted with this assignment.
HCA 430 Week 3 DQ 1 Cost of Health Care
FOR MORE CLASSES VISIT www.hca430aid.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.hca430aid.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 homicideprone 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
FOR MORE CLASSES VISIT www.hca430aid.com 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. â€˘ 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.
The organization currently serves the community and clientele with community education classes at schools and community centers, as well as the distribution of condoms and educational materials. They wish to expand their current services to reach the neighboring community (4,000 residents), add social media advertising and messaging to reach the younger population, distribute educational material and condoms to homeless shelters in the area, and add HIV testing to at-risk individuals. Select two of the potential services and determine how the money can be best spent to have the greatest outcome for the HIV+ population in the community. â€˘ Based on the CDC website, analyze how cultural norms impact the risk of getting HIV. Explain one method or action on how to address this challenge.
HCA 430 Week 4 DQ 2 Regulatory, Legal, Ethical, and Accreditation Issues in Research
FOR MORE CLASSES VISIT www.hca430aid.com 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.hca430aid.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 marketoriented 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.
