priviliege health care

Few would argue against the notion that health care is a service most Americans need. After the rollout of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), one central question that came up for national debate was whether access to health care was a fundamental right or whether it was a privilege.

In a 1-2 page paper, written in APA format, address the following:

  • Explain at least three (3) of the most common reasons why all Americans don’t have access to health care in the United States even after the ACA.
  • Express your opinion about whether you think access to health care is a right or privilege. Explain your reasoning and provide references as needed to support your opinion.

Just follow the

Intro to Health Services and Research

Public Health and Health Care Services

Using the public health issue that was selected for Week 1, describe how the issue is currently addressed by public health services and by medical practice services to include any collaborations that may exist. Using a general outline, develop a plan for how the issue could be addressed more effectively. Explain how the components of your plan that are different from current interventions would produce more effective outcomes.

Note: The focus of this assignment as it relates to your selected public health issue should be prevention and treatment.
Provide a 3 to 5-page Microsoft Word document that includes the following:

  • Discuss current interventions by public health and medical care professionals for the health issue that you have selected.
  • Develop a general plan for how the health concern could be addressed more effectively using public health and medical care organizations.
  • Explain why the changes that you are proposing would be beneficial to the population and to the organization providing healthcare services, thereby improving health outcomes.

Discussion Post and 2 (One Paragraph) peer response

In approximately 250 words, please respond to the following questions:

  1. Do you recycle as much as you can?
  2. Do you believe in recycling or think it is a waste of time, energy, and monetary resources?
  3. Describe some practices/techniques that could be taught to children early on that could help conserve natural resources before recycling resources would need to be spent.

Peer Response 1


Yes, I recycling as much as I can. I even recycle the saran rap because I take it as plastic. From the cereal boxes to little notes, I recycle all the papers that I used in my school and family. I believed in recycling can help our environment and earth. I learned recycling when I was elementary school student. I do the recycling very detail. From board paper to paper rolls, I put the in different categories. My thought was changed after I moved Maryland. the recycling bins are not as detail as I thought. There are only two trash can: one is trash, the other is recycling bin. That means I put plastic, glass, papers, aluminum can and milk boxes together. I am wondering who can do the subrecycling for us? Are we really doing recycling? Since that is the regulation in my city of Rockville, I did not ask why and just followed it.

I think I can teach children early to tell what can be reused, what can not be used. For example, I can show the children that rebuilt papers and rebuilt tissues. Ask them think about where they come from? Make children realize that papers can be reused again. On the other hands, glasses are hard to be broken. So the glasses are different from papers. So they have to put them in the different bins.

Also I will ask them not to waste their papers. Use their blink of papers as much as they can. Then they will not to recycle that much! That can save labors

Peer Response 2


I think I recycle as much as I can. My whole family does. Whatever can be recycled, we usually put in our big recycling can for the truck to pick up on Fridays. I think recycling is a good practice and not a waste of time, energy, and monetary resources. It doesn’t take much extra time to put items in the recycling bin. I used to rinse off some containers for recycling, which did take some extra time and energy. However, after attending a recycling workshop a few years ago, I learned that that was not necessary.

Children can be taught some recycling practices/techniques from an early age. Here are just a few examples from my own classroom. I have a recycling bin in my pre-k classroom. I teach my students what can be thrown in there and try to remind daily to throw items in it that can be recycled. In addition, I read some books to them when appropriate that teach the value of recycling. On Earth Day, we have special outdoor activities, some of which are on the topic of recycling. One of the games we play with our students is walking around on the field collecting trash that teachers put there on purpose and putting that trash in either the trash can or recycling bin. At the end of that game, we gather the children and check what they put in the trach can and recycling. We have a useful discussion and move some things to the appropriate container if it has not been placed in the right one.

Option #1: Anger Management Services

Jane is a mental health counselor working with adults who have been arrested for domestic battery. She works in a program funded by a non-profit organization whose mission is to prevent domestic violence by teaching anger management skills. Isaiah, a 24-year old male, has been referred to her for anger management counseling after he was arrested for punching his girlfriend during an argument the previous week. According to the arrest report, Isaiah didn’t think it was wrong to punch his girlfriend because, in his words, “She made me mad.” This is Isaiah’s first arrest. He has been required by the State Attorney to attend eight weeks of counseling in exchange for deferring, and ultimately not filing, criminal charges. Isaiah is restrained from returning to his girlfriend’s home, and he is currently sleeping on the sofa of a friend. Isaiah must leave his friend’s home and find another place to stay in two weeks. Additionally, he missed two days of work following his arrest and subsequent incarceration, and faces suspension from work and loss of pay for one week due to his unexcused absence. If Isaiah is charged with a criminal offense, he will lose his job. Isaiah has never had any counseling and was raised by his mother, who taught him that counseling was “for crazy people.”

Write an essay that addresses the following items:

Describe Isaiah’s physical, emotional and monetary needs.

Identify three challenges Jane will face while working with Isaiah.

What can Isaiah plausibly expect from Jane and the system?

Evaluate the likely successes and shortcomings of the services provided.

Describe the criteria you use to evaluate successful service delivery.

Describe one model or theory (i.e., Maslow’s needs theory, situational or developmental) that could help Jane offer support for Isaiah’s problems. Explain how Jane might apply the theoretical concept.

Discuss and cite the course textbook and at least one additional credible source to support your analysis and position. The CSU-Global Library is a good place to find this credible source. Your paper should be 3-4 pages in length with documentation and citations conforming to APA Requirements.
