President Obama is currently in the processes of rectifying this concern of the public. Before him, President Clinton made an effort to implement a reform policy in relation to healthcare which was stopped at the door. After President Clinton, health care costs and spending have risen, and the population without insurance benefits has increased (Blendon, Brodie, Benson, Altman, & Buhr, 2006). The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), which President Obama has implemented, empower citizens with choices for healthcare at affordable prices. His implementation has begun to change the forces of healthcare on all forefronts.
Health organisations became NHS trusts, each with their own managers competing against each other. (Ibid, p73). A new Labour government came to power in 1997 under Tony Blair. He promised to ‘save the NHS’ by putting an end to the internal market, encouraging partnership and improving funding. However, NHS trusts continued
The implications of this essay will be discussed in relation to my future practice as a qualified Social Worker as a member of an inter-professional team. The concept of inter-professional working in recent years has been on the agenda since the 1940s and has been debated due to recognition of need (Quinney 2006). Since the 1970s government initiatives required different professions to work together to improve service delivery. More recently government legislation and policies have introduced partnership working for health and social care agencies, which led to inter-professional teamwork becoming the preferred model of working (Quinney 2006). Research indicates that, whilst there has been a generally held belief that collaboration is a very good thing and inter-professional teams have increasingly gained favour in recent years (Cartlidge et al 1991).
Introduction As the contemporary society forges ahead amazingly, the public demand has become increasingly diversified. Advanced Practice Nursing (APN) has been particularly prominent in health care discourse since the 20th century (Brown, 1998). As many of APN’s job scope are overlapping with the traditional medical role, frequently, they are struggled to articulate what it is as nursing-based care providers that they uniquely bring to their patients (Dunphy & Winland-Brown, 2006). Caring is a word often associated with nursing, and it is one of the symbolic characters to differentiate APN from medical team. A transformation conceptual model, the Circle of Caring (Figure 1) is developed by Dunphy and Winland-Brown in year 1998 especially for APN in North America (Dunphy & Winland-Brown, 2006).
When taking a look at Llyod Bitzer’s Rhetorical Situation I see several similarities on his positions compared with many modern well-known rhetoricians. Bitzer explains that rhetorical discourse comes into existence as a response to a situation and without a given situation there would only be communication. With that being said, I think it s appropriate to make my first argument on how this is still apparent in today’s world. Our current government was recently focusing very closely on health care reform, because it was (and still is) an apparent problem (the situation). When the government or the president addressed this issue they were practicing the art of rhetorical discourse by addressing and reacting to the given situation.

The twenty-first century The public health white paper- choosing health making healthy choices
Consumer-directed healthcare continues to gain momentum, yet the navigation tools and provider directories consumers use to select individual physicians do not offer comprehensive information about physicians. Also, the current physician ranking systems being used in the marketplace weigh physician rankings on varying methodologies. This makes it difficult to compare the rankings of physicians by other health plans. Horizon BCBSNJ must also respond to the President's 2006 Executive Order 13410 "Promoting Quality and Efficient Health Care in Federal Government Administered or Sponsored Health Care Programs." The Executive Order outlined four cornerstone requirements.
Health Care Industry Out of all the industries in the United States, the health care industry would be the one experiencing the most change in what seems to be a short amount of time. The health care industry was the last industry to fully embrace technology, however in the last ten years and especially within the last two years technology has been a huge focal point in health care. Everything from the security of confidential patient information to health care organizations moving from paper charts to electronic medical records to a national health information exchange and electronic patient portal, allowing patients to be more involved and informed of his or her health.

Health Care : The Last 10 Years Over the last ten years health care has seen many changes with one of the biggest changes being the use of technology.
It also lets know the problems with the respective health care systems over time and lets us know how the country has responded to the problems. This quote helps us learn about the problems with the British health care system, “the NHS faced a problem that still persists six decades later: When you make medical care free, people tend to use a lot of medical care. The NHS exceeded its budget in its first year of operation and in most years thereafter”(Reid Ch7). It is important to know the problems of each health system because it is helpful in deciding if we want to implement that health system in
