Instructions
 
To complete this activity, please look back to the Unit 7 Learning Activity. Select the “Focus Area” that you are most interested in from the six choices listed. The six choices are:
 

  • Veteran’s Administration
  • Mental Health/Substance Abuse Treatment and Prevention
  • Women’s Health/Family Planning
  • Health Promotion/Disease Prevention
  • Long-term Care
  • Public Health

 
For the “Focus Area” you choose, consider the following questions as you are doing your research:

  1. Why is this focus area important to our overall healthcare system?
  2. What population is directly served and how do they benefit from services and programs in this area?
  3. What are some of the most notable programs available to patients or clients in your area of focus?
  4. What areas could use improvement?
  5. How would significant funding improve the care being provided?

 
Begin your research using the links provided in the Web Resources provided on the Unit 8 Assignment page in the course. If you find you need further information, you are encouraged to continue your investigation using the KU Library, online sources, or textbooks and periodicals available to you.
 
When you have finished your research from the questions in your Focus Area, prepare a short PowerPoint presentation that is designed to show why your selected “Focus Area” of the healthcare system should receive funding.  Imagine a realistic scenario where there are limited monies available, and sell why your Focus Area should receive it, based upon the several questions you answered about it.
 
Your PowerPoint presentation should include a minimum of 10 slides, not including the cover slide and reference slide.
