discuss the major health needs and challenges that this vulnerable population typically faces in the United States and a current related health care policy.

For this assignment, you will develop a written assignment using the Annotated Bibliography formatting on the topic of Vulnerable/Special Populations and Health Care Policy. Identify one vulnerable/special population group of interest (racial/ethnic minorities, the uninsured, children, women, the homeless, rural health, migrant workers, mental health, chronically ill/disabled/dying, the elderly, HIV/AIDS, or other topics of interest). Then find three current scholarly journal articles that discuss the major health needs and challenges that this vulnerable population typically faces in the United States and a current related health care policy.

A bibliography is a list of sources (books, journals, Web sites, periodicals, etc.) one has used for researching a topic. Bibliographies are sometimes called “References” or “Works Cited” depending on the style format you are using. A bibliography usually just includes the bibliographic information (i.e., the author, title, publisher, etc.). Purdue Writing Lab has a resource on Annotated Bibliographies.

The following article by Owl Purdue contains information on formatting an Annotated Bibliography.

Write an annotated bibliography of each article separately that includes these elements:

  1. An Introduction to the problem/issue.
  2. A Summary of each article analyzing information related to the vulnerable population of choice and a related health care policy (1-2 paragraphs). Also, include an analysis of the source (journal or research study) – this can be as simple as saying the article was valid because it was published in a peer-reviewed scholarly journal. If summarizing a research study, you could identify any shortcomings of the study, such as a small sample size. Here are directions on how to evaluate a source.
  3. A Conclusion discussing how your thinking about the topic may have changed and any “wonderments” or ideas you were left thinking about after reading each article.

See the Purdue Owl APA Annotated Bibliography samples.

This written assignment will be graded using the Annotated Bibliography Rubric. The paper should be no longer than 3-5 pages and be divided into three separate annotated bibliographies (not including title page, separate reference page is not needed for this assignment the reference is placed at the beginning of each annotated bibliography). It will also be graded based on the extent to which each of the three elements above are addressed for each of the three articles.
