HCA 415 Week 2 Assign 1 and Assign 2
I have 2 assignments that I need help with. If you need anything please let me know
Assignment 1
Community Health Roles
Complete The Community Health Roles worksheet.
(Instructions are also on the first two pages of the worksheet)
Part I:

Start by reviewing the articles on quasi-government and non-governmental agencies in your REQUIRED course materials. Then:
Provide solid definitions of governmental agencies, quasi-government, non-government agencies. Please do not copy your definitions from a dictionary or any source. You must explain these in your own words. Copying and/or direct quoting will result in 0 points on this portion of your assignment.
Explain the difference between public health and medical services.
Part II:

INSTRUCTIONS: Complete the chart below. In each box in column 1, you need to select four public health concerns from the list below. (You might want to review information on some of the suggested health topics in Chapters 5, 6, 7, and 9 in your textbook, listed in RECOMMENDED course materials.) Your task is to find health-related organizations/agencies and a link to their website that address these issues at three distinct levels:
Governmental Agencies (column B)
Quasi-Government Agencies (column C)
Non-Governmental Agencies (column D).
Then, in column E, write in one or two sentences explaining why this issue is a public or community health concern. Remember that public/community health focuses on populations, not individuals. Think back to your explanation in Part II outlining the differences between public health medical services. You are required to review scholarly research to determine the role of public health as it relates to these issues. Each description MUST include a citation.
Please note that your description of the importance to public health should not be rooted in the individual medical health care. Public health focuses on populations, not individual care. See the example below to help you with your worksheet responses.

Module 9: Case Study 3
Making Cuts in a Health Department Budget

[Student Name]

HCA415: Community and Public Health

[Instructor’s Name]

[Date Submitted]

Module 9: Case Study 3
Making Cuts in a Health Department Budget
1. Explain how the four bioethical principles should guide budgetary decisions in the public health realm. The bioethical principles are autonomy, beneficence, maleficence, and justice.

2. Examine how these final decisions were made in terms of: who should have a voice in this decision, how many and which stakeholders should be involved, what rules of discourse should be followed and how would you reach that final decision (i.e. what is the deciding factor).

3. Describe the ethical norms that should be essential in making a decision about reducing or expanding a public health budget?

4. Page 256 of the case study shows the service areas that are most affected by the budget cuts. Select two of these areas and determine a “no cost” alternative to reduce the negative effects of this service reduction/elimination. (A more detailed view of the specific elements being cut can be found on pages 263 and 264 of the case study.)

5. Imagine you suddenly came into enough funding to reinstate one of the bulleted items on pages 263-264. Reviewing these elements under the four bioethical principles, which (if any) would you add back into the budget and why? If you did not add any of these back into the budget, what would you do with the extra funds? Explain to your stakeholders why you came to your conclusion.
