In healthcare, many traditionally over-looked special populations may benefit from healthcare advocacy. Special populations can be defined by many factors, such as age, sex, race, religion, disability, diagnosis, geography, socioeconomic class, and more. Many special populations, such as those who are incarcerated, those who are uninsured, those affected by environmental pollution, those diagnosed with rare diseases, etc. do not have access to equal health resources.
You are the Community Health Advocacy Director for your region. Your latest task is to identify special populations in your city/county/state that do not have equal access to health resources and to provide recommendations on how your local hospital can train its staff to be more effective advocates and provide the resources that are necessary to improve healthcare for all.
For this assignment, you will complete three parts and submit two files:
Part 1: Create a Presentation
Create a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation for the video conference with the Springfield Hospital Board of Directors. Include the following:
Identify at least one special population in healthcare.
