International Project: Group Components
This project provides opportunities to practice a number of skills including:
Encouraging students to research a different healthcare system
Applying critical thinking skills using class terms in analyzing both the U.S. system and another system.
Working with peers to produce an electronic presentation which affords students practice with groupwork – a real world skill!
Allowing students to practice public speaking through the presentation.

The overall point of the assignment is to show your understanding
of the U.S. healthcare system, introduce and educate others about
another country’s system, then compare the two. Draw
conclusions from your research.

Clearly this is a broad topic so you must be clear and concise in
what you focus on.

Present an analysis of the U.S. system which includes factors
such as: what works? What doesn’t? Why? What are some
special facets of the system. Be sure to use TERMS FROM
CLASS and CONCRETE EXAMPLES

Do the same for the country of your focus.

Then analyze and explain some similarities and more importantly
differences. WHY do you think they exist? HOW do they
deliver care? WHAT is important for us to know about this
country and how their system of healthcare developed? These
are just some examples of ideas to get you started.

Use the video to add a creative element to your presentation.
You have flexibility in making the video (within the time limits).
However you MAY NOT take one directly from the internet. The
video requires an original creation. Having said that, you can use
video software, clips from the internet, make a short movie, etc…

The video should not simply summarize your presentation. It
should add something new and different to the discussion.
My Group and I chose New Zealand.
The Topic I have to focus on are
Advantages/Disadvantages to New Zealand Healthcare System
– Role of Government in US and NZ Healthcare System…
Role of Government in US and NZ Healthcare System
Please remember, we have to do voice-overs on our PowerPoint. We also have to include one self-made video (not from the internet). I don’t know how to do that. Any suggestions?
Our goal is to: present an analysis of the U.S. system and the country of our choice which includes factors such as: what works? What doesn’t? Why? What are some special facets of the system. Be sure to use TERMS FROM CLASS and CONCRETE EXAMPLES (Kind of like a Pros & Con List) We must compare and contrast the health care systems the US and the other country. We must also come up with conclusions and recommendations while also noting the similarities and differences. We must be clear, concise and use specific examples!

Proposal for Improvement of a Healthcare Organization | Part 2 – Proposal Development for Intervention
The health care under consideration is the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC). The wide gap and deficiencies in the access to basic health care prompted the creation of NACHC in 1971. NACHC is a collaboration of primary care organizations and state health centers. They can serve over 27 million individuals and have their centers in more than 9000 sites spread across the States. They reach up to 11000 undeserved communities across American society (National Institute of Health, 2020). The financing of the health centers within NACHC is largely contributed by the public. They use the finances to source resources needed to conduct training, research, advocacy, and information across all its centers.
The creation of NACHC was to promote health care that is comprehensive to be accessed by all, of high quality, linguistically and culturally competent, community-oriented, patient-centered, and effective. The services offered by NACHC include the provision of research-based advocacies for both the clients and the centers, the creation of private partnerships and stakeholders to increase delivery of health care, training and provisions of technical help to their workers, and creating awareness concerning the values and mission of the health centers. To understand the status of NACHC and insights on areas that need improvement, I did an indebt interview with DR. Kimberly Chang.
Dr. Kimberly S.G. Chang, MD, MPH, is a NACHC Board member. She also doubles as a director of Human Trafficking and Health Care Policy and a family physician at Asian Health Services. Asian Health Services is a Community Health Centre located in Oakland, California. As a NACHC board member, she is a representative of the Asian Pacific Islander community. She voices the needs of her community members to the NACHC to address the needs they require in the provision of quality health care, training, and technical support of staff. As the director of human trafficking, she provides the representation, vision, and management of human trafficking. In the Health Care policy, she leads in the formulation of policies that could enhance effective and efficient health care that is people and community-oriented. As a family physician, she manages complaints, uncovers some conditions, recognizing diseases of public health importance, and manages acute and chronic illnesses. Her emphasis lies in the prevention of disease and the promotion of health.
Dr. Kimberly pointed out the mission of NACHC of provision of comprehensive, high quality, and affordable care that is coordinated, competent, linguistically and culturally competent, and community-oriented to underserved populations. The mission is broad, and being community-based implies it meets the needs of the community based on what the community needs. Being linguistically and culturally sound allows the provision of health care considering their culture, therefore, aligning with their cultural beliefs preventing any bridge and makes care more effective and efficient.
NACHC provides a range of services and programs to help ease the provision of health care to people across its centers with the rapid changes seen in the health care landscape. The programs include advocacy to the regulatory bodies on issues that affect the health centers in alignment with the mission. They have training and leadership development programs for their staff and their board members to lead and provide quality services to their people (National Institute of Health, 2020). Also, provision of services and technical assistance to meet the need of the health centers to disseminate care effectively. Various groups, task forces, and committees have been set up to voice the issues at health centers to the managing bodies. National awards programs for health centers have been developed to increase the health center’s motivation to provide the best services.
Recommendations for possible improvement to NACHC include the inclusion of social and behavioral determinants of health and creating interventions that could influence health outcomes. Inclusion of social and behavioral determinants of health in their role will help to address most of the root causes of most of the diseases. For instance, addressing the lifestyle behaviors by encouraging people to take place in exercise activity will significantly improve their health in people. Research shows that physical activities can help minimize the risk of major illnesses. The illnesses include cancer, stroke, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes which can be reduced by as high as 50% lowering mortality rates by 20% to 35% (Warburton, Nicol, & Bredin, 2006). Therefore an address into the behavioral and social determinants like poverty, nutrition, sanitation, and others will significantly reduce disease burden hence improved population health.
Interventions to influence health outcomes include campaigns to create awareness for the people. Awareness campaigns can target vulnerable groups at risk of infections and inform them on prevention mechanisms, for instance, education of men having sex with men on the need to use condoms to prevent HIV spread. The NACHC community can also dispense these condoms so that they are available for use. Preventing diseases will cut the costs that are needed to carry patient care. It will also save the workforce and increase the economic production in the country.
The interventions will be in line with the Christian perspectives. Addressing the social needs of the community to prevent disease agrees with Christianity teachings. They teach the value of helping the poor, and this is what happens when the social needs are addressed. Christianity articulates the need for good health and more intervention to the prevention of disease, and promotion of health ensures good health. Therefore the interventions are in line with Christian perspectives that advocate for good health for all people.

Section 3 – [1 – 2 pages]
Project Personnel Narrative
This section will include an explanation/justification of the proposed project personnel. The explanation/justification should specify how many persons, at what percentage of time and in what categories will be participating in the project and the lines of responsibility.
• Refer back to your project activities – Section 2 and identify those people who will actually be paid from the grant. These are the ones to be identified in this section.
o Include short descriptions of each of the people who will be involved in your project and supported by the funding. The descriptions should clarify in the mind of the potential funding agency that these people are ideally suited to conduct the project.
o Instead of having all full-time staff on the project, consider having a number of part-time.
• Any student participation, paid or unpaid, should be mentioned, and the nature of the proposed contribution detailed. If any persons must be hired for the project, say so, and explain why, unless the need for persons not already available within the organization is self-evident.
 Section 4 – [3 ½ pages]
Budget, Continuation (Sustainability) Funding
This section provides the detailed budget with the requested funds for the project expenses. Information required Sponsors customarily specify how budgets should be presented and what costs are allowable.
• Make your budget realistic. Carefully think through exactly what you will need from the funding agency to carry out the project and establish your budget around this amount. (Do not forget, funding agencies receive lots of requests for funding. They can easily tell when someone has inflated a budget in order to procure funds for other purposes. Don’t get caught in this situation.)
• Budgets are often formatted in tables and figures, each amount should be clearly labeled directly followed by the budget with be a justification statement explaining why each cost, material, and equipment is valid, reasonable, and important for your project.
• The budget also specifies items paid for by other funding sources, including an explanation for requested expenses.
• Indicate how the project will be funded or be sustainable after the grant funds have run out
• Facilities a) Though you may not be requesting funds for the purchase or rental of facilities, it can be helpful to provide a brief description of the facilities that will be used for the project. b) Consider describing existing facilities that will be used for the project as in-kind contributions to the project. Even if you have free access to classrooms at a local school, meeting or a project room in a local office building, it can be helpful to indicate how much additional money the prospective funding agency would have to provide if these facilities were not donated.
• Equipment/Supplies
o Be careful in listing the equipment that will be needed for your project. Funding sources are usually much more willing to provide funds for the support of personnel than they are to support the purchase of equipment (that may or may not directly benefit the funded project).
o It will help if you have really done some research on the actual cost of the equipment you specify. This is
o much better than guessing at the cost and then to be challenged on your estimates by the potential funding agency.
o It is easy to overlook many of the office supplies or consumables that will be needed for your project.
