Visit your state(Ohio) or national ANA website or other state/federal legislative site and search for CURRENT health care policy issues and bills. Write a letter in the form of an email to your legislator, specific to a CURRENT piece of legislation and provide reasoning regarding how this issue will impact your ability to provide care to patients in your practice, your support or opposition for this issue, how this issue will impact health care, financing, etc. Determine if the issue should be directed to a state or federal legislator…this is to whom you should address your letter. Be cognizant that if writing a Senator, you should be referencing a Senate bill or if writing a Congressperson, you should be referencing a House bill. This is the case for both federal as well as state legislators.
The letter should include 3 facts to support your discussion. You state the resource such as “According to the CDC, …” APA format is not used–there should not be intext citations or a reference page. Simply state the source of the information with the fact.
