Discussion 1: Evidence Base in DesignWhen politics and medical science intersect, there can be much debate. Sometimes anecdotes or hearsay are misused as evidence to support a particular point. Despite these and other challenges, however, evidence-based approaches are increasingly used to inform health policy decision-making regarding causes of disease, intervention strategies, and issues impacting society. One example is the introduction of childhood vaccinations and the use of evidence-based arguments surrounding their safety.In this Discussion, you will identify a recently proposed health policy and share your analysis of the evidence in support of this policy.To Prepare:Review the Congress website provided in the Resources and identify one recent (within the past 5 years) proposed health policy.Review the health policy you identified and reflect on the background and development of this health policy.By Day 3 of Week 7Post a description of the health policy you selected and a brief background for the problem or issue being addressed.
