HA415-3: Distinguishing the role of the local, state and national policy makers.
It is important to understand the process of how ideas become regulations and rules and how rules and regulations become policy and laws for the nursing home industry. Imagine yourself as a public speaker trying to simply explain this path on the local, state, and national level to a bipartisan group of nursing home administrators. Your explanation should show the story of how healthcare policy is produced and how that policy impacts the nursing home industry.
Create a visual depiction using any tool you wish (graphs, charts, figures, pictures or PowerPoint) to explain the process of how ideas become regulations and rules and how rules and regulations become policy and laws on the local, state, and national levels for the nursing home industry. Research the path of how local, state, and national rules, regulations and laws are created and include the knowledge you find from this research into the visual depiction you create. The depiction should be concise and easy to understand. For example, no more than five PowerPoint® slides if PowerPoint® is used or no more than 2 pages of graphs, charts, figures, or pictures if WORD® is used. APA is not required except for the references section. You must include two (2) scholarly resources.
