Though not required, it is highly recommended that you watch the movie Sicko prior to completing Workshop Five assignments.
If you choose to watch the movie, you will need to acquire it by renting or streaming it.
Using workshop readings and your own online research, take on the role of a healthcare administrator and create a 25-slide PowerPoint presentation that you could use to educate your staff on the laws and mechanics of meeting the healthcare needs of a diverse patient population.
Clearly identify at least five different patient populations.
Describe one or more current health policies already in place regarding these populations. These may be federal, state, or local.
Cover three or more issues that your staff may encounter when providing care for each of the populations (for example, language, culture, health literacy, etc.).
Include descriptions of the types of resources that will be available to your staff (for example, translators, mental health professionals, future training, etc.).
Your presentation should include at least five citations from the textbook, articles, or other credible sources, provided in a separate bibliography using proper APA format.


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.
