Paper details The Capstone Project is designed to provide the student an opportunity to synthesize knowledge gained from course study throughout the student’s academic career. For this project you will choose a topic related to your area of study and complete a Formal Written Report, an Oral Presentation and a PowerPoint Presentation based on your study and research. WRITTEN FORMAL REPORT The final paper should be 15 – 20 pages in length, not including title page, table of contents, and bibliography. The body of the report should be a minimum of 4000 words. The final paper should follow APA basic format including 1 inch margins, 12 point Times Roman type, double spaced and standard rules for manuscript preparation. The paper must have at least 6 references that are cited according to APA guidelines including proper in-text citations and a Reference List.
The paper will demonstrate the student’s ability to use clear and concise writing at the college level. The paper should encompass the course materials learned throughout the student¿s bachelor-level academic career. It should address a topic that affects or is related to the student’s areas of study. below i pasted the outline i did, its kind of shity but it’ll give you an idea of what i want the paper to be about. also include ways in which the issues can be improved. do the minimum of pages ( 15 pg’s ) for the body the extra pages i paid for are for the title page, reference pg, table of contents etc. and the 6 sources have to be scholarly please and thank you. you don’t have to use the once pasted if they’re no good. Nilliam Rodriguez Topic & its Rationale Increasing Preventative Care Measures I chose this topic because preventative care measures are extremely important in order to keep the masses safe and healthy. Healthcare management MBA programs often examine an existing problem in the industry and suggest possible solutions based on the data. A lack of access to preventative care affects an entire community and costs healthcare systems an exorbitant amount of money. Emergency departments frequently see heart attacks, strokes, and other catastrophic events that could have been prevented with affordable medication and monitoring. Hospitals often absorb the cost of necessary surgeries and extended hospital stays for these patients without insurance or with minimal coverage. This project would evaluate different plans for solving this problem and the ways to improve preventative care for everyone. Project outline Opportunities for prevention impact all Americans, regardless of age, income, or perceived health status. Each year, potentially preventable chronic diseases like heart disease, cancer, and diabetes are responsible for millions of premature deaths among Americans. The five leading causes of death in the U.S. are heart disease, cancer, chronic lower respiratory disease, stroke, and unintentional injuries. Because health problems impact productivity, health problems are a major drain on the economy, resulting in 69 million workers reporting missed days due to illness each year. This loss of productivity reduces economic output by $260 billion per year. Most Americans under use preventive services, individuals experiencing social, economic, or environmental disadvantages are even less likely to use these services. 1. Challenges people face with preventative care. Lack of access to quality and affordable health care. A) Lack of adequate coverage makes it difficult for people to get the health care they need and, when they do get care, burdens them with large medical bills. B) The people that suffer from lack of access are more likely to have poor health status, less likely to receive medical care, more likely to be diagnosed later, more likely to die prematurely. C) Improving access to health care services depends in part on ensuring that people have a usual and ongoing source of care. People with a usual source of care have better health outcomes, fewer disparities, and lower costs. Lack of access to healthy food choices A) While some populations may not question driving 2 miles to the grocery store, at-risk communities already hamstrung by the forces of poverty and income may find such a trek impossible. Many members of these communities don’t have reliable transportation, and they often do not have the income to afford high food prices at healthful grocery stores.
Due to these factors, they’re shopping, instead, in stores where produce selection is low quality and minimal, and where it’s more cost-effective to purchase cheap, unhealthy foods. B) Neighborhoods that are predominantly white have an average of one grocery store per 11,900 residents. Conversely, neighborhoods that are primarily black have a single grocery store for every 35,000 inhabitants. The data in the map below confirms that there is a possible trend between race and access to healthy food. C) Spending habits; for a grocery store, restaurant, park, or community garden to survive it needs the support of the people who live there. If the individuals in the community choose to spend their money at fast food chains instead, they will find that decision has an adverse impact on community health. Unsafe environments A) Improve quality of air, land, and water. B) Design and promote affordable, accessible, safe, and healthy housing. C) Enhance cross-sector collaboration in community planning and design to promote health and safety. Lack of preventive care education A) Education is critical to social and economic development and has a profound impact on population health. B) Counseling on such topics as quitting smoking, losing weight, eating better, treating depression, and reducing alcohol use can improve health and reduce costs by preventing illness. C) Preventive services can also help those with early stages of disease keep from getting sicker. Preventing disease is key to keeping rising health costs under control. A) Counseling, screening, wellness visits, prenatal care, etc., can improve health and reduce costs by preventing illness. B) Health problems are a major drain on the economy, resulting in 69 million workers reporting missed days due to illness each year, and reducing economic output by $260 billion per year. Increasing the use of proven preventive services can encourage greater workplace productivity. C) Preventing disease before it starts is critical to helping people live longer, healthier lives and keeping health care costs down.
