we will explore the meaning of health and health policy as well as how health policy directly impacts the determinants of health. We will also spend time exploring the context of health policy making and regulation at various levels: federal, state, and local. We will close out our first week by learning about the interplay between demanders and suppliers in policy markets.
Your Learning Objectives for the Week:
- Contrast the concept of public policy, particularly as it relates to health care issues in the United States.
- Apply and interpret the stages in the policy making process.
- Evaluate the relationship between access to care, quality of care, and health outcomes.
