Historically, the nursing profession responds to the needs of society by helping manage the safety and welfare of the population. To continue this mission and provide safe, quality nursing care, you must keep abreast of the latest topics that affect the health status of our communities. Being able to effectively disseminate knowledge to the general public and other health professionals is crucial for the nursing profession.

Preparation

Search the library and the Internet for scholarly and professional peer-reviewed articles on food-borne illness or virus prevention. You will need at least three articles to use as support for your work on this assessment. In addition, look for statistics on cases of food-borne illness or influenza in your community.

Directions

Your employer is hosting a Healthy Mind and Body Fair in your community. Your manager has asked for your help in creating educational materials about food-borne illnesses like E.coli or viruses such as influenza. The goal is to provide information about how to reduce the risk of infection. You have been asked to create two informational handouts:

1. One handout is for participants (community members, patients) that raises awareness about the transmission of common bacteria or viruses and how to prevent the spread of these common infections.

1. The second handout is directed at allied health care providers. This material should provide a higher level of information and detail about the subject.

Each handout should cover the following:

. Provide information about the illness and transmission.

. Provide recent statistics of cases in the community, with sources noted.

. Describe both treatment and prevention options, with an emphasis on prevention.

. Relay any new research or treatment modalities.

. Include information your readers will want to refer to in the future. This includes Web sites or tips for finding additional information or additional resources.

Consider the reader when creating your handouts, and be creative!

Format the handouts as follows:

. Break up content into short paragraphs.

. Use bullet points and lists whenever possible.

. Use sub-headings to isolate different topics within the documents.

. Remember, say no more than what is necessary; the urge to say too much can ruin a good handout.

Additional Requirements

Each handout should meet the following criteria:

. Contain 500 words (2 pages).

. Must be readable, concise, with a logical ordering of ideas.

. Include a minimum of three references. (These must be recent, from within the past five years.) The same resources can be used for both handouts.

. Provide adequate documentation of ideas and appropriate APA citation of relevant literature.

. Include a reference page.

. Be double spaced in Times New Roman font, 12 point.

Evolution of Laws

MMA was signed by President Bush in 2003. The MMA brought about sweeping changes that increased enrollment and improved access to Medicare Plans. Similarly, the PPACA was signed into law by President Obama in 2010. The law is expected to significantly increase access to Medicaid for the uninsured, low-income families, and individuals. Medicaid managed care has been implemented by most states, mainly because of rising costs, plan quality, access to providers, and the decrease in state revenues and federal matching funding. Medicare has explored managed care for the same reasons: to reduce costs, improve quality and improve access to providers. Using the South University Online Library or the Internet, research the following two topics and write a paper evaluating the impact of these policies on Medicare and Medicaid managed care.

You need to research on the following two topics:

· Medicare and managed care

· Medicaid and managed care

Based on your research, answer the following questions:

· Write a summary for each topic tying together the information learned about that topic.

· Analyze the challenges Medicaid faces in terms of improving access to care, quality of care, and reducing the cost of care.

· Analyze the challenges Medicare faces in terms of improving access to care, quality of care, and reducing the cost of care.

· Draw conclusions about the future of managed care in each program—will it grow or decline? What will be the challenges for success?

· Select at least four reputable articles per topic that address the challenges facing Medicare and Medicaid managed care.

Based on your research, summarize your findings on the selected topics and compile your observations in a 5- to 6-page Microsoft Word document.

Support your responses with examples.

Cite any sources in APA format.
