NURS 6050 Assignment: Agenda Comparison Grid and Fact Sheet

It may seem to you that healthcare has been a national topic of debate among political leaders for
as long as you can remember.
Healthcare has been a policy item and a topic of debate not only in recent times but as far back as
the administration of the second U.S. president, John Adams. In 1798, Adams signed legislation
requiring that 20 cents per month of a sailor’s paycheck be set aside for covering their medical
bills. This represented the first major piece of U.S. healthcare legislation, and the topic of
healthcare has been woven into presidential agendas and political debate ever since.
As a healthcare professional, you may be called upon to provide expertise, guidance and/or
opinions on healthcare matters as they are debated for inclusion into new policy. You may also
be involved in planning new organizational policy and responses to changes in legislation. For
all of these reasons you should be prepared to speak to national healthcare issues making the
news.
In this Assignment, you will analyze recent presidential healthcare agendas. You also will
prepare a fact sheet to communicate the importance of a healthcare issue and the impact on this
issue of recent or proposed policy.
To Prepare:
 Review the agenda priorities of the current/sitting U.S. president and at least one previous
presidential administration.
 Select an issue related to healthcare that was addressed by two U.S. presidential
administrations (current and previous).
 Consider how you would communicate the importance of a healthcare issue to a
legislator/policymaker or a member of their staff for inclusion on an agenda.
 Use your Week 1 Discussion post to help with this assignment.
The Assignment: (1- to 2-page Comparison Grid, 1-Page Analysis, and 1-page narrative)
with a title page. This is an APA paper. Use 2-3 course resources and at least 2 outside
resources.
Part 1: Agenda Comparison Grid
Use the Agenda Comparison Grid Template found in the Learning Resources and complete the
Part 1: Agenda Comparison Grid based on the current/sitting U.S. president and the previous
president, and their agendas related to the population health concern you selected. Be sure to
address the following:
 Identify and provide a brief description of the population health concern you selected.

 Explain how each of the presidential administrations approached the issue.
 Identify the allocation of resources that the presidents dedicated to this issue.
Part 2: Agenda Comparison Grid Analysis
Using the information you recorded in Part 1: Agenda Comparison Grid on the template,
complete the Part 2: Agenda Comparison Grid Analysis portion of the template, by addressing
the following:
 Which administrative agency (like HHS, CDC, FDA, OHSA) would most likely be
responsible for helping you address the healthcare issue you selected and why is this
agency the most helpful for the issue?
 How do you think your selected healthcare issue might get on the presidential agenda?
How does it stay there?
 An entrepreneur/champion/sponsor helps to move the issue forward. Who would you
choose to be the entrepreneur/champion/sponsor (this can be a celebrity, a legislator, an
agency director, or others) of the healthcare issue you selected and why would this person
be a good entrepreneur/ champion/sponsor? An example is Michael J. Fox is champion
for Parkinson’s disease.
Part 3: Fact Sheet
Using the information recorded on the template in Parts 1 and 2, develop a 1-page fact sheet that
you could use to communicate with a policymaker/legislator or a member of their staff for this
healthcare issue. Be sure to address the following:
 Summarize why this healthcare issue is important and should be included in the agenda
for legislation.
 Justify the role of the nurse in agenda setting for healthcare issues.
By Day 7 of Week 2

Analysis, and Part 3: Narrative.

Discussion: Presidential Agendas
Rather than focus on the treatment of chronic disease, policies that influence population health
tend to emphasize prevention and wellness; the reduction or elimination of waste and the
eradication of health disparities based on race, ethnicity, language, income, gender, sexual

orientation, disability and other factors. The reasoning is that good health belongs to the whole,
not just an individual. (New York State Dept. of Health, n.d.)
Regardless of political affiliation, every citizen has a stake in healthcare policy decisions. Hence,
it is little wonder why healthcare items become such high-profile components of presidential
agendas. It is also little wonder why they become such hotly debated agenda items.
Consider a topic (mental health, HIV, opioid epidemic, pandemics, obesity, prescription drug
prices, or many others) that rises to the presidential level. How did the current and previous
presidents handle the problem? What would you do differently?

To Prepare:
 Review the Resources and reflect on the importance of agenda setting.
 Consider how federal agendas promote healthcare issues and how these healthcare issues
become agenda priorities.
By Day 3 of Week 1
Post your response to the discussion question: Consider a population health topic that rises to the
presidential agenda level. How did two recent presidents handle the problem? What would you
do differently?
By Day 6 of Week 1

response and providing an example that supports their explanation or respectfully challenging
