This week’s readings and lecture offered information related to lobbyists and advocates. Is there a difference between being a lobbyist and an advocate? Lobbyists provide support for policy, as do advocates, so what is the difference? Most nurses consider themselves patient advocates; however a political advocate is somewhat different. In this discussion, differentiate between a lobbyist and an advocate. Be sure to discuss a political advocate rather than a bedside advocate.
Topics to include:
- Definition of a lobbyist.
- Definition of an advocate.
- Similarities and differences.
- Why are they both important?
- How does one of your selected organizations( The Joint Commission ) lobby or advocate for health care policy
must contain minimum of two (2) references one (1) from required course materials and one (1) from peer-reviewed references, in addition to examples from your personal experiences to augment the topic. Synthesize and summarize from your resources in order to avoid the use of direct quotes, which can often be dry and boring. No direct quotes are allowed in the discussion board post.
Discussion post-good writing involves providing an introduction and a conclusion; this includes your initial discussion posts. Two to three sentences (for the DB only) is acceptable. An introduction introduces what you will discuss, and a conclusion provides a brief synopsis of the content of your discussion. Please note 0.25 points will be deducted for each missing introduction and conclusion initially. In the event subsequent assignments do not include an introductory and concluding paragraph (two to three fully developed sentences) points will be deducted in increasing increments.
PLEASE FOLLOW ALL RUBRIC ND INSTRUCTIONS OR POST WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED
