Instruction: Please answer the following two questions in an essay form using the clear instructions provided bellow. I also provided you with the references needed for my state which is California. Please do not use introduction just go straight explaining and answering the questions.
My role specialization is Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP).
1- Review the 2013 AHRQ disparities report. http://www.ahrq.gov/research/findings/nhqrdr/nhdr13/index.html Chapter 2 of this report describes eight common conditions which are influenced by disparities:
Select one of these diagnoses and describe the problems associated with its care. Discuss the findings in the AHRQ report and how this influences the outcomes for an individual patient or family. Look at your state health department website and see if you can identify any specific programs which exist to help with this diagnosis and how closely it may match the AHRQ report.
Diabetes: is the diagnosis I selected.
2- After reviewing the link to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), discuss the implications of the act from the viewpoint of a specific population which represents some type of health disparity, as defined in your readings this week. Look specifically at your state and see if you can locate specific information on how the ACA has been implemented at the state level and how this is reflected in the care of the individuals in the group you specify.
