As a way of demonstrating completion of this course requirement, you must submit, in writing, a policy log that detail certain aspects of each event.
- Each event log should be 2â€“3 double-spaced pages of text.
- Provide only a brief summary of the topic being discussed (3â€“5 sentences).
- Your analysis section should be 500 to 750 words and be the most developed component of the report. In the analysis section, you can write about the process of policy being made at this event, and/or you can write about the actual health policy issue being discussed/considered. This should primarily be your analysis, and if you refer to an analysis made by an event participant, make that clear in your log. Your analysis should include new information that goes beyond what was discussed in the event.
- Your analysis should integrate course content and readings. Reference at least two sources from the learning materials in this course or other sources which may include scholarly sources, health policy reports or recent media articles.
- Use APA format for citations and references.
