Health and policy multiple questions

Answer each question with 200 or more words. APA format and in cite text. Use at least 2 peer reviewed journal as references.

D2:What is the real and perceived performance of the US health care system? Are the views different among patients, providers, payers, policy makers? Why or why not?

D3:Since health care tends to be local, as a policy maker, what would you do to encourage the large community (retailers, restaurants, employers, schools, etc) to improve the health of the community? For these initiatives should the government play a role or should they be sponsored by other entities? In many states, the Certificate of Need (CON) requirement is still being practiced. Is it right to limit competition among health care institutions in a proximate region–simply because of, say, political clout or who has the deeper pockets? Defend your response.

D4:Briefly discuss your views of management and leadership. Do you believe they are the same or different? If you believe they are different, do you think that they have the same importance for the future of nursing? Do you feel that one is more important than the other? How can novice nurse-managers and administrators learn important management functions and develop leadership skills? Should they? Who today represents a “model” leader? What is their distinction?

D5:Healthcare today seems to center on physical care, often relying on advanced diagnostics with highly specialized clinicians needed to administer it—and as quickly as possible. In fact, many procedures are being performed “same day” that were unthinkable a few decades back. While these advancements help a hospital’s bottom line with rapid thru-put for physical procedures, let’s think about psychiatry as a healthcare crisis that requires considerably more time and specialization to realize results. Do you believe that psychiatric and psychological disorders are becoming destigmatized, and consequently being given the same attention by providers (insurance and facilities) as physical ailments? Should mental health be equal to physical health as a social responsibility? Does the PPACA (Affordable Care Act) offer balance in this situation? Explain.
