An Older Workforce Impact on Healthcare

1-Write a short narrative about an individual (or institution) which illustrates the issues of your problem statement (see examples used in Bird & Reiker for ideas).

What are the constraints that interfere with a good outcome for your individual?

How can a policy intervention lead to a better outcome?

2-Create a constrained choice model that illustrates your narrative and topic brief in graphic format (see especially Chapt. 3 of Bird & Rieker)

You may want to play with this model a bit filling in a model based on constraints that lead to negative outcomes and another model showing the policy changes that create opportunities for better outcomes.

This is a tool for working with your ideas that you should come back to and refine throughout the process. You will include a model in your final paper.
