The creation of health policy is complicated. There are many stakeholders, issues, concerns, and politics that play a role in the process. The readings for this week provide a foundation for this process and the many contextual aspects of it.
For this assignment, you will be examining the stakeholders in policy making and the process of policy formulation. While policy is created at all levels of government, for this assignment, you will focus on the federal government. Your paper should discuss and analyze in depth the three phases of policy making, identify the stakeholders that are involved at each level, and assess the issues that might be present. Be sure to also explain how the stages are inter-related.
