  3. HHS 497Course Material • Privatization. Among the various factors impacting the Health and Human Services (HHS) programs, increased costs, such as personnel, equipment, and facilities, may be leading considerations in a program manager’s plans and priorities. After becoming more familiar with the concept of privatization, identify the advantages of engaging in privatization and what is required to actually carry this out. • Cost of Health Care. Health Care Reform has, for a long time, been a hot topic. Costs of Medicare, loss of jobs, increased costs of doing business, are all part of the problem/need. Research various kinds of controversies and issues in the field of human services, with a focus on the clash of values in social policies. In a 300 word analysis, focus on the trade- offs between cutting programs or providing health care services. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings.

  4. HHS 497Course Material • Group in Need: America’s Poor–Program Area: Welfare • Group in Need: Unemployed–Program Area: Limits to benefits of unemployment insurance. • Your PowerPoint presentation slides should: • § Be sequenced and organized clearly. • § Have a clear, logical progression of ideas. • § Have bullet points or short sentences, not dense paragraphs. • Budget Allocations. Help, human services, and care are provided in many formats. However, to be considered under the umbrella of health and human services, the help must be provided by some type of formal organization. The Federal Government, the major provider of social welfare benefits, allocates 90% of the Federal budget for social programs. There are over 300 programs situated in eight public health agencies and three human service agencies.

  5. HHS 497Course Material • Summarize the general aspects of Dr. Watson’s Caring Theory. • § Formulate a set of values that should be the foundation of a caring Perspective in the health and human services. • § Comparing your set of values with two classmates’ work and commenting about these comparisons is also part of this assignment. • Post your 300 word discussion and respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings. • New Emphasis. There has been a shift of emphasis of the consumers of health and human services from professionals and care providers to increasingly include the client system. The stakeholders have increased through participation coupled with the increased volume of information which allows greater exposure to care alternatives.

  6. HHS 497Course Material • Information Systems. Inability to improve information systems will result in inappropriate and limited use of the critical information important to health and human services professionals. • Identify at least three of the needed improvements and discuss the needs specifically in terms of how the improvement directly impacts the HHS client base. Post your 300 word discussion and respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings. • Final Paper Outline. This week, you will be writing a section of your Final Paper. Review the Week Five assignment for complete instructions of what is expected in your Final Paper. Choose either “Option A -Career/Occupational area to explore” or “Option B –Specific Need area to explore”. • “Option A -Career/Occupational area to explore”: HHS 497 Week 3 DQ 2 Information Systems (Ash) HHS 497 Week 3 Final Paper Outline (Ash)

  7. HHS 497Course Material • Hansell’s Motivation Theory. What makes a theory useful is the ability of the practitioner to use the elements of the theory (called premises or postulates) in practice and research. These applications can empower the human service worker by providing added information, insight, and perspective regardless of the career level. Theory-into-practice is a forerunner of best practices • Seligman’s Theory. Many of the theories addressed in health and human services work are based on the medical model of “deficit health,” that is, focusing on what is wrong with the client. In contrast, a newcomer to the field of psychology focuses on the strengths and wellbeing, of the client. This is called positive psychology, developed by Dr. M. Seligman.

  8. HHS 497Course Material • Groups in Need. After reading Chapter 2 in your text (Groups in Need), you cannot help but appreciate the span of needs and then wonder, “How do we make budget allocation decisions?” and, “What happens to the individuals unable to acquire appropriate help”? In many ways, individuals needing one kind of service can, if the need is not addressed, have a negative domino effect on the person. • Focus of the Final Paper • The Final Paper should demonstrate an application of your knowledge of Health and Human Services, by synthesizing the information from the readings, class work, and work and life experiences. Please discuss cultural competency in Health and Human Services work and how it can be achieved in the treatment of diverse groups or populations.
