Project #106179 - week 10 discussion

Public Health Preparedness Policy

Although the threat of a nuclear meltdown was very real to David in the weekly Introduction case study, your community probably has different public health concerns. Consider the different categories of natural and man-made emergencies for which public health agencies must prepare, as identified in the Learning Resources. Identify the emergency most likely to impact your community and conduct research about your state and/or local public health department’s preparedness policies. Note: If these policies are not posted, search for readiness policies of similar public health agencies.

To guide your research, search for answers to the following questions:

  • Who would be in charge of responding to the emergency?
  • What readiness and/or prevention policies are currently in place?
  • How would federal, state, and local resources be coordinated and mobilized? 
  • What role might the National Incident Management System (NIMS), or similar national systems in other countries, play in response to the emergency?
  • What important laws, rules, and regulations are currently in place to safeguard public health with regard to the emergency you chose? 

As you conduct your research, think about possible revisions to the preparedness policies. Search for credible resources that could support those proposed revisions. 

This Discussion will be available from Day 1 through Day 7 of this week. You are required to submit your initial post by Day 3. You are encouraged to post early. Once you have submitted your initial post, start engaging in a discussion with your colleagues. Begin engaging with your colleagues by no later than Day 5 and continue to interact frequently with your colleagues through Day 7. Part of what makes a Discussion a discussion and not a lecture is the back and forth, in-depth, animated interaction of at least two people. If you start a topic and none of your colleagues are responding, consider what you can do to get the conversation going. Include something that would elicit further thoughts and different opinions from colleagues. Validate your opinions with references and links to the sources you used so that your colleagues can read them for themselves. Refer to your Discussion rubric in the Course Information area of the course navigation menu for specific grading requirements. 

Post initial responses to the topic by Day 3. In a 3- to 4-paragraph post, identify and briefly describe the emergency you selected. Briefly summarize and then analyze the preparedness policies that address the emergency, including the role of local, state, and federal agencies, if applicable. Propose at least one change you would make to improve the preparedness policies, and support your proposal with credible resources.

Begin engaging with your colleagues by participating in the Discussion by no later than Day 5. Continue engaging in the Discussion through Day 7. In your responses, contribute multiple meaningful, substantive ideas, suggestions, and insights on the focus topic. Present your written contributions in a polished, professional manner with scholarly support.

Support your work with specific citations from this week’s Learning Resources and additional scholarly sources as appropriate. Refer to the Essential Guide to APA Style for  Students to ensure that your in-text citations and reference list are correct.
