Healthcare policies impact all populations. Now, with the use of social media, policies involvement and awareness are rising.
Take a moment to review the Twitter feed for compelling Tweets that are related to healthcare policy and are directly impacting your community or those you care for.
Give an overview of a policy or potential policy. Include how it could impact your community or those you care for positively negatively.
Next, discuss the importance that interdisciplinary collaboration would have related to the policy.
Then, identify any ethical concerns it raises for you and why.
Compose a 280-character or fewer Tweet that describes what you have shared with the class. Remember Twitter only allows 280 characters (this include spaces, etc.) so you will need to be concise. It should include a hashtag. Include a reference URL if applicable. Share this Tweet in the discussion. (Note: A Twitter account is not required).
Your discussion post should look like:
Paragraph one: overview of the policy or potential policy. Include how it could impact your community or those you care for positively negatively.
