Week 1 Discussion

Agenda Comparison

Every individual, regardless of political affiliation, has a stake in the choices made Therefore, it should come as no surprise that healthcare issues are prominently featured on presidential agendas. It also comes as no surprise why they become such contentious agenda subjects.

In Part 1 of this module’s Assignment, you were required to begin working on an Agenda Comparison Grid in order to examine the effects of the agendas of the two previous U.S. presidents and the current/sitting president on the healthcare topic you chose to research.

Review the Resources
and reflect on the importance of agenda setting.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has defined SDOH as the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work, and age (WHO, 2012). SDOH are shaped by the distribution of money, power, and resources at global and national levels. These SDOH are mostly responsible for health inequities, or the unfair and avoidable differences in health status seen within and between countries (WHO, 2012). SDOH include a number of factors such as socioeconomic status (SES), employment, housing, food security, transportation, education, as well as social support and the physical environment. There is substantial evidence to demonstrate an unequivocal link between social disadvantage and poor health. In fact, several researchers have reported that as much as 80% of health outcomes are attributable to social determinants (Magnan, 2017; Singh et al., 2015; 2017).

In this regard, SDOH are referred to as “the causes of the causes” of disease, illness, and health disparities by Braveman and Gottlieb (2014). The root causes of disease, illness, and health disparities have direct implications for nursing as a professional practice discipline. The majority of nursing practice interactions and encounters today take place in the context of nurses caring for individuals and their families. Face-to-face interactions between nurses are referred to as ‘downstream,’ as opposed to ‘upstream,’ encounters.
