In this Application Assignment, you will have the opportunity to further develop your analysis skills by working through the policy analysis process. To be an effective agent for social change, you must be able to logically and critically analyze policy from multiple perspectives and contexts and then present your insights in a succinct and professional manner. This exercise will afford such an experience. For this Application Assignment, you will examine a particular policy of interest to you (perhaps the one you selected for this week's Discussion), and apply a policy analysis framework to understand the impact associated with the implementation of the policy. You will then develop a policy analysis paper. To prepare: Select a health care policy and a policy analysis framework. PLEASE USE A CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK.
