Position Paper Written Assignment – First part
A position paper is a document you could present to a legislator to seek support for an issue you endorse.
Present your position on a current health-care issue in a one-page paper, following the assignment guidelines below.
You can select your issue topic from newspapers, national news magazine articles, professional journals, or professional association literature; and this can be the topic you choose for your ethical issues debate.
My position paper written assignment is based on an assumed meeting I have attended on January 28, 2018, and transmitted by C-SPAN Washington Journal; where Mr. John Auerbach was interview and he talked about Public Health Funding and the challenges on Public Health.
Please rephrase this comment. This comment was posted on my discussion during class and it was taken from online sources. “The intent of this meeting is to seek how can we allocate federally funds to our public health workforce, enhance internships and partnership programs in public health agencies, enhance leadership development programs for everyone in the public health workforce, and increase core financial support for the public health infrastructure. Public health nursing resources have been decreasing, and ongoing shortages threaten the ability to meet the health needs of our communities.”
And follow the requirement for this paper as follow:
Your position paper should:
• Be quickly and easily understood.
• Be succinct and clear.
• Appear very professional with the legislator’s name and title on top and your name and your credentials at the bottom.
• Condense essential information in one, single-spaced page, excluding the title and reference list pages.
• Be written using correct grammar, spelling, punctuation, syntax, and APA format.
• Clearly describe the issue that you are addressing in the opening paragraph.
• Include 3–4 bullet points regarding why you are seeking the legislator’s vote, support, or opposition. Bullet points should be clear and concise but not repetitive and should reflect current literature that substantiates your position.
• Summarize the implications for the nursing profession and/or patients.
• Conclude with two recommendations that you wish to see happen related to your issue, such as a vote for or against, a change in policy, or the introduction of new legislation.
• Use APA format (6th ed.), correct grammar, and references as appropriate.
• The literature you cite must be from peer-reviewed journals and primary source information.
