Eddy’s research on the frequency of pap smears, found in Fuchs (1996), is an example of research changing health care policy in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Identify a recent development that is changing or could change health care policy. In your paper, you must: a) summarize the findings/arguments of at least four recent peer-reviewed articles, b) explain the policy issue at hand, c) present each side of the argument and the values at hand, d) project what changes you anticipate as a result of this recent development, e) reflect on your learning from this project and how your process of understanding this issue will influence your opinion of further issues in health care reform.
