HC 4225 - Healthcare Public Policy and the Legislative Process

This class provides the student with an understanding of the political and legislative processes that create healthcare policy change and reform. Students examine the influences and functions of government agencies, legislative processes and procedures and executive branch rule-making. Students will objectively evaluate how policy changes occur at the federal and state levels and then how they subsequently affect your functioning as a citizen and a professional. Class lecture will focus on the legislative path of federal law and then follow it through to the outcomes at the state level. Students will explore the importance of developing relationships, communication and advocacy strategies with elected officials and various stakeholder groups that interact with the federal and state legislative processes.
