Developing a Heart Disease Advocacy Campaign

To the writer, thank you for accepting this essay. Please do not use any resources older than five years and please do not use any direct quotations as our instructor insists on paraphrasing works. To complete the essay I need you to review and use Chapter 3 of Milstead, J. A. (2016). Health policy and politics: A nurse’s guide (5th ed.). Burlington, MA: Jones and Bartlett Publishers which I included in the attachments. This essay I am asking you to write is a continuation or part 2 of our first assignment which I also included in the attachments for you to review. In the first assignment, I reflected on whether the policy of the population health risks, (specifically as they pertain to heart disease), and what types of health advocacy programs and policies could be created to raise awareness successfully to promote how it could best be achieved through the development of new legislation. Moving forward I need the writer to contemplate how existing laws or regulations may affect how you proceed in advocating for your proposed policy. • Consider how you could influence legislators or other policymakers to enact the policy I propose in the first assignment. • Think about the obstacles of the legislative process that may prevent the proposed policy from being implemented as intended. Part Two and the assignment I need you to prepare must address the following: • Explain whether your proposed policy could be enacted through a modification of existing law or regulation or the creation of new legislation/regulation. • Explain how existing laws or regulations could affect your advocacy efforts. Be sure to cite and reference the laws and regulations using primary sources. • Provide an analysis of the methods you could use to influence legislators or other policymakers to support your policy. In particular, explain how you would use the “three legs” of lobbying in your advocacy efforts. o Summarize obstacles that could arise in the legislative process and how to overcome these hurdles. I do need to end this essay with a summary.
