Assignment Policy Analysis HLT 205
It is critical for students to learn from those who are currently working in health care as they progress through this program. Students will conduct an interview with a health care professional for this assignment. Because many health care professionals have limited availability due to their schedules, it is critical that you begin a search for potential candidates to interview at the beginning of the course. It is recommended that you schedule a meeting a few weeks in advance after finding a candidate for the interview. If necessary, you may conduct the interview in person, over the phone, or via e-mail correspondence.
Identify at least ten policy-related questions that are critical to understanding current and future issues in specific delivery settings. Refine your questions so that they are pertinent to the person or policy being interviewed. Professionally conduct the interview at the agreed-upon time.
After finishing the interview, write a 750-1,000 word paper summarizing your findings. In addition to your textbook, cite at least two
additional resources for this class.

You should proofread your paper. However, do not rely solely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part, and your grade will suffer as a result. Papers with a high number of misspelled words and grammatical errors will be penalized. Before submitting your paper, go over it in silence and then aloud, and make any necessary changes. It is often beneficial to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Uncorrected mistakes are preferable to handwritten corrections.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point typeface (10 to 12 characters per inch). Smaller or compressed type, as well as papers with narrow margins or single spacing, are difficult to read. It is preferable to allow your essay to exceed the recommended number of pages rather than attempting to compress it into fewer pages.
Large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are also unacceptable, waste trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced, and have a one-inch margin on all four sides of each page. When submitting hard copies, use white paper and print with dark ink. It will be difficult to follow your argument if it is difficult to read your essay.
