Q1. Define public health law in your own words.
Q2. How does Tort Law impact health care workers?
Respond to this peer below, Written by Ashley Paton.
Public health laws are any laws that aim to protect and preserve the public’s health. Public health law was proven to be indispensable to public health, demonstrated by the contribution of law to each of the 10 greatest public health achievements. Public health laws can derive from federal and state constitutions, as well as statutes, regulations, rules, and policies. Krueger et al. (2017) discusses the importance of health care law and practice in the promotion of mental health and well-being. Programs and laws can aid in stress management skills and address social and economic conditions. Examples of laws and policies that promote public health are parenting support, education, including home visits, and improving law enforcement and community relationships with educational training. Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) helps students affected by trauma to attend school regularly and learn effectively. ESSA is a federal education law that focuses on helping those at an economic disadvantage and aiding in social and emotional learning skills, relationship skills, decision-making skills and self-awareness (Krueger et al. 2017).

This week you will complete the Framework section of the Prospectus Form. For the Framework section, list any theories and/or concepts relevant to your topic and research variables to be studied. Students can access a list of possible DHA theories on the DHA Program Prospectus Support page. This theoretical or conceptual framework is the basis for understanding, designing, and analyzing ways to investigate your research problem (data collection and analysis). It must be aligned to the framework with the problem, purpose, research questions, and background of your study.
This week you will complete and/or update the following Prospectus Form sections:
1. Framework (Theoretical and Conceptual)

Template will be provided. Create a 2-3 page internal memo for a risk-management team. Summarize a risk financing issue for a selected organization in the memo. Introduction Note: The assessments in this course build upon each other, so you are strongly encouraged to complete them in a sequence. Financial risk-management helps reduce the financial impact of risk. It also determines the best approach for handling adverse situations from a financial standpoint. Health care leaders must have a solid understanding of the basics of regulation, government and public risk sharing, and also the era of ACOs. There is a constant tension between the management of medical errors and the improvement of the quality of care. You may be asked to participate in risk-management and risk financing activities in your role as a health care leader. If a risk management team asked you to research and summarize financial risks in your organization today, would you know the following: What information to include? What format to use? How to present alternatives and make a recommendation? How to locate credible data from which the issue is to be evaluated? Read further in the Assessment 2 Context [PDF] document, which contains important information on the following topics: Regulations. Risk Management. Risk Sharing. Risk Financing. As you prepare to complete this assessment, you may want to think about other related issues to deepen your understanding or broaden your viewpoint. You are encouraged to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend, or a member of your professional community.

Imagine that a supervisor enters your work setting accompanied by an unexpected visitor from CMS. Your supervisor introduces you to the Medicare surveyor, who will be interviewing you. What is the risk-management process in your organization? What criteria would you use to determine how well your organization is performing as an ACO? What data or resources would be helpful to you? How would you explain the concepts of risk management and risking financing activities to your subordinates? How would you explain a risk financing continuum to your subordinates?
