Length: 1,200 words Curriculum Mode: Essay After considering the risks in Assessment 1 (Risk-benefit analysis matrix on Private Health Insurance Reform), how will this health system reform impact you/ your professional practice? Are you for or against implementing the change to the health system? The Department of Health is convening a panel of experts and stakeholders, including government officials from the Department of Finance, Executives from major private health insurance companies, senior clinicians from District Hospitals, and community representatives. Ahead of the meeting, you, as a representative of a stakeholder group of your choice, has been requested to write an Advocacy Statement to convince the panel whether or not the reform should be implemented. An Advocacy Statement is a written document that advocates or supports a position on behalf of a particular group or community. For example, you could advocate on behalf of your professional association (nurses, doctors, OTs), your local community (e.g. a NSW rural community), an interest group (e.g. elderly, people with disabilities, CALD populations, refugees, etc.) or organisation (private or not-for-profit). While it is important to ensure you are representing the needs of the community/organisation you identify with, it is also important to highlight the scale of impact outside your community too. Note: Please, see below information in a box to help you find Assessment 1. I have also attached it in a different file. More importantly, we need assessment 1 to complete assessment 2 which is a Policy Advocate Statement. Hope, it helps.
