Essay: Learning experiences as a consumer of healthcare

Conduct website searches of the following organizations:

National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) (

Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) (

Joint Commission, Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) (

Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) (

Reflect on your learning experiences as a consumer of healthcare; then assess how the information on the above agency websites can impact a healthcare consumers’ role in making healthcare decisions by completing the following:

Compare and contrast the information provided to the healthcare consumer from a minimum of two websites.

Evaluate how the information provided is (or is not) beneficial to you as a healthcare consumer.

Identify two additional websites that you have used (or could use) in search of patient information.

Assess the value of these additional resources.

Your paper should meet the following requirements:

Be 3 pages in length, not including the cover or reference pages.

Be formatted according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements.

Provide support for your statements with in-text citations and references from a minimum of four (4) scholarly articles, cannot be older than 10 years, in addition to other course resources. The CSU-Global Library is a good place to find resources.


You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
