HCS 557 WEEK 5 Social Policy Outline – Part 1

Write an outline on social policy surrounding prescription drug coverage for older adults. Support a side as to whether the government should have more or less involvement with policies affecting prescription drug coverage, particularly surrounding importing drugs from foreign countries such as Canada.

This could mean that your team supports the government or that you are in favor of private support or intensive regulation. Your instructor will assign your team a side to represent. This assignment helps you evaluate existing age-based policies and possible proposals for change.

Include the following in your outline:

  • Historical trends for the team’s side of the social policy issue
  • Local, state, or federal perspective for the team’s side of the social policy issue
  • Team’s position, and the arguments and solutions proposed
  • Pros for the team’s side, either supporting side or opposing side
    • Areas to consider are derivations and directions of public policy, interrelationships of agencies, and a discussion of selected programs and services for the aged. Examine the government response to the growing number of older Americans and the policy process.
    • Consider how public policy on prescription drug coverage has positively or negatively affected the older adult. Identify any pros or cons associated with your argument. Consider how older adults or organizations they have formed such as American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) have affected policies directly related to prescription drug coverage.

Write at least 10 questions that may be asked to the opposing side. The questions should be specifically directed to your opponent and should be clear and concise.

Include 3 peer-reviewed references per team member

Format your outline according to APA guidelines.
