Final Research Paper Topic choices: Your Research Paper will be due during the “finals” week of your term, Week 11. You should begin thinking about your topic choice during the second or third learning plan if not earlier. (Your instructor may open a discussion area during the last half of the class for you as you go through the steps to write your paper.) Your topic should be something that is of interest to you and perhaps one that you have had some personal experience with through either a current work environment or a past work environment. Perhaps you are struggling with a current issue or a past issue that could have been resolved in a different manner or have heard about an issue that is current in health care management. The topic must be approved by your instructor and must be related to the topics of this course – policies and ethics in healthcare management.

An example of some possible topics: 1) Should healthcare be universal in the US? If so, should all members of society in the US receive healthcare regardless of their status? 2) Current and future policies concerning the choice of patients who will receive medical treatment such as organ transplantation 3) Issues of cultural differences in the medical environment 4) Profitability vs. patient care You may choose to do a paper on some other topic as long as it involves policies and ethics in the medical environment that is current and easily researched. Your paper must address the ethical principle or principles that enlighten decisions concerning policies in health care.
