Review of Current Healthcare Issues
If you were to ask 10 people what they believe to be the most significant issue facing healthcare today, you might get 10 different answers. Escalating costs? Regulation? Technology disruption?
These and many other topics are worthy of discussion. Not surprisingly, much has been said in the research, within the profession, and in the news about these topics. Whether they are issues of finance, quality, workload, or outcomes, there is no shortage of changes to be addressed.
In this Discussion, you examine a national healthcare issue and consider how that issue may impact your work setting. You also analyze how your organization has responded to this issue.
Post a description of the current national healthcare issue/stressor you selected for analysis. Explain how the healthcare issue/stressor may impact your work setting (my work setting is a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Facility). Then, describe how your health system work setting has responded to the healthcare issue/stressor, including a description of what changes may have been implemented. Be specific and provide examples.
Discussion is to consist of 3 paragraphs with 750 words no less than 550. With at least 3 references no more than 5 years old
