Assignment 3: Final Project 3: Evidence-Based Research
The development of health policies relies on evidence-based research to support a new policy or policy revision. There are many foundations and federal agencies that partner with community members, academia, or scientists to conduct a research project that will produce credible findings leading to short-term change or long-term progress.
In Week 1, you analyzed the article titled “Building a Bridge to Somewhere Better: Linking Health Care Research and Health Policy” by Davis, Gross, and Clancy (2012) to identify successful partnerships with major stakeholders in the US healthcare industry. In Week 2, you recommended the trainings necessary for physicians shifting from hospital-based care to community care.
This week, using the journal article by Davis, Gross, and Clancy (2012), you will demonstrate how evidence-based research contributes to health policies.
Write a 3–5-page essay in Word format.
Include the following:
Compare and contrast examples from the article that demonstrate how evidence-based research contributes to health policies. Examine what evidence-based research is targeting, what population is affected, and how this research will contribute to the development or the revision of a healthcare policy. Be sure to support your statements with scholarly references and appropriate examples.
