Public Health Policy Research Paper

Public Health Policy Research Paper: Students will research a specific health policy/law or current ethical issue/dilemma in public health. The research must examine: -history - specific key stakeholders - both sides/perspectives of the issue - public health justifications - policy reasoning (as outlined in our learning materials) - vulnerable populations - any additional items as dictated by your topic. Students must have an in-depth understanding and share BOTH sides/perspectives of the issue. NEEDS 7 SCHOLARLY REFERENCES! Example 1: Colorado’s Amendment 64: Use and Regulation of Marijuana. Provide perspective of those for and against this Amendment; pros and cons of the regulation; obstacles to passing the regulation; etc. Example 2: Car seat legislation is a public health policy that is meant to reduce the risk of severe injuries to young children if impacted while riding in a car. On the other hand, the cost of these mandated devices may make them unattainable for some community members. Research the rationale for making this a health policy (use literature searches, CDC morbidity and mortality reports, Emergency Room tracking data, Highway Safety Patrol Data, etc. look for a specific community, state or federal law that states this policy is in effect.) Discuss the ethical implications of this policy and how it might be challenging for some to adhere to the law. Other Examples To Choose From: Electronic Medical Records; E-Cigarettes; Physician-Assisted Suicide; Genetic Testing in Newborns; Pertussis Vaccinations; HPV Mandatory Vaccinations; GMO Foods; Teen Contraceptives; Needle Exchange Programs; Vaccinations and School Admittance Policies; “Fat” taxes (taxes on unhealthy foods); Gun Control Policies (specify at what level – local, state, federal); Smoking/tobacco bans (specify at what level – local, state, federal); Transgender bathrooms; Abortion; Prescription Drug Advertising Some questions to consider: Why is it important to understand this health policy or this ethical health issue/topic? Who is primarily affected by this ethical issue or health policy? Are there other populations, groups, people affected that aren’t as obvious? Who are the vulnerable populations (e.g. women, infants, children, elderly) and how are they affected? What is the history of this issue? What is the perspective and reasoning for the pro and the con side of the issue?
