Your writing assignment will be graded based upon the thoroughness and thoughtfulness of how you answer each of the questions below. In answering these questions, refer to specifics in the book and/or use outside resources as necessary.
Identify and analyze how 2 social determinants of health affected Henrietta Lacks and/or her family. Use excerpts from the book to support why you chose these 2. If Henrietta and her family were not afflicted with these SDOH, do you think that we would have HELA cells today? Why or why not? Be sure to highlight by bolding or underlining the social determinants of health you are discussing.
Identify 2 ethical violations. Using readings from the book and course readings/outside sources, support why you chose these 2. Be sure to highlight by bolding or underlining the ethical violations you are discussing.
The purpose of this paper is to analyze healthcare reform as it relates to one chosen healthcare population of interest, such as women, children, elderly, homeless, and other vulnerable populations or populations with healthcare disparities. According to Artiga, Orgera, and Pham (2020), “health and health care disparities are commonly viewed through the lens of race and ethnicity, but they occur across a broad range of dimensions”, including age, socioeconomic status, gender and gender identity, as well as disability (What are health and health care disparities? section, para. 3). You will then choose a health concern related to your chosen population of interest (pregnancy, specific cancers, HIV, home healthcare, diabetes, heart disease, etc.) and review the benefits and challenges of health reform in care for the health topic of the chosen population of interest. It may helpful to think about healthcare issues of the population you currently care for in professional practice.
The paper should be no more than six pages in length, including the title page, 3-4 page body, and references page. Be sure to utilize the course writing resources, as well as Grammarly, to assist with writing (organization, APA, and grammar/punctuation).
Three of the references should come from peer-reviewed journal articles (review the library resource video from the Intro to Scholarly Writing course), and the others may come from legitimate professional and/or governmental websites.
The paper is to be written as a Word document in APA format (be sure to review use of appropriate APA header levels) to include:
Body of paper:
• Introduction: write a minimum of five complete sentences paragraph introducing the topic and include a purpose statement. Provide an introduction paragraph to the final paper. Remember, there is no header needed for the introduction paragraph.
• Analysis of Healthcare Reform (use a first level header): After setting up the Analysis of Healthcare Reform first level header, create second level headers for each section below included in the analysis:
o Healthcare Reform: provide an overview of healthcare reform with evidence to support from the textbook resource AND peer reviewed journals and reputable websites (i.e. Kaiser Family Foundation, CDC, National Institutes of Health (NIH), Institute of Medicine, World Health Organization (WHO), American Public Health Association, HRSA, state departments of health, American Nurses Association, etc.). Although WebMD is a good resource for information, it is not a reputable website for supporting a topic for a scholarly paper. Information should not be earlier than 2014, unless information is coming from the Affordable Care Act summary. For this section, you can take key information from peer reviewed articles and reputable webpages in the annotated bibliography assignment (see separate annotated bibliography assignment guidelines and rubric in the course).
o Chosen Population of Interest and Health Concern: describe the chosen population of interest and health concern and the reason you chose them in relation to healthcare reform. Support this section with information/evidence as noted above. For this section, you can use the chosen population and healthcare topic assignment once you make corrections and updates from faculty feedback.
o Benefits and Challenges of Health Reform for the Population of Interest: For this section, you can again take key information from the annotated bibliography assignment pertaining to benefits and challenges of health reform in relation to the chosen population of interest and their health concern.
o The Role of the Nurse: describe the role of the nurse when caring for the population of interest and their health concern and healthcare reform in five or more complete sentences. Support with information/evidence as noted above. For this section, add a five complete sentences paragraph of the nurses role.
•vConclusion (first level header) paragraph (minimum of five complete sentences): write a minimum of five complete sentences summarizing what was described in the healthcare reform paper.
• References page (first level) header and start on new page after the conclusion paragraph): the paper should include a minimum of FIVE references. Three of the references should come from peer-reviewed journal articles (review the library resource video from the Intro to Scholarly Writing course), and the others may come from legitimate professional and/or governmental websites (see above in the description of healthcare reform in general) or books/textbooks.
o Unless you are specifically citing and referencing information that has historical significance, such as the Affordable Care Act (2010), references should be no more than seven years old (no earlier than 2014).

This installment is the finished product. Make it shine in content, grammar, formatting—the works. It’s a good idea to have someone competent in writing proofread your paper for sense and errors. If you need more help make an appointment with the Graduate Writing Center, but do it early enough to benefit from their guidance. SafeAssign checks for text originality and proper source attribution. Failure to properly credit your sources is a form of plagiarism and carries stiff academic and even civil penalties. See the syllabus for more details about academic integrity. Include all of the following:
1. Title page. Include a separate title page with title of paper, assignment name, your name, course number and title, date, and word count. This page does not count toward the minimum 2,000-2,500 words of your paper.
2. Abstract. Provide a short summary of the content of the paper (no more than 150 words). An abstract says something about each of the main divisions of your paper, including your findings or conclusions. The abstract is not a part of the body of the paper and is not included in your minimum word count.
3. Body. This is a narrative paper, not an outline. Flesh out in more detail the content you began in your outline, using as sectional titles the major Roman numeral headings in your outline. Make sure your intervention addresses the need you identified and fully incorporates one behavioral construct. Use proper AMA style for all in-text citations. Except when quoting a source, always use your own words; clearly cite all of your sources. If you use quotes, do not excerpt more than 100 words total from all sources. This section constitutes your 2,000-2,500 word count.
4. Citations. Cite the same references as you used in your outline in section V (you may modify or expand your list, if needed). Check again for proper AMA citation style. This section is not included in your minimum word count.
