Question Description
1.

The growth and development of children is determinant of how healthcare is delivered. It is different than how healthcare is delivered to adults, mainly because of the reliance on adults and other caregivers to access medical care, as well as the evaluation of said care. Similarly, as adolescents move into adulthood, another unique set of healthcare needs and preferences are required. According to Ahrq.gov (2019), “Although the pediatric population (ages 0-21) is generally healthier than the adult population, children and adolescents are affected by a broader range of acute and chronic illnesses and injuries that require specialty care.” The timely identification and treatment of these conditions are crucial. Early intervention in terms of physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development is imperative. If not cared for in childhood and adolescence, long-term health can be negatively impacted (Ahrq.gov, 2019). Additionally, new morbidities are becoming common as is related to children’s healthcare. In Unit 6 Lecture 2, it is explained that alcohol and drug abuse, violence, emotional disorders, and learning problems are contributing to how child healthcare is delivered. The lecture also expounds on the different sectors of programs, of which are disconnected, including primary and specialty services, immunization and abuse prevention programs, and nutrition programs such as WIC and other family support (Unit 6, Lecture 2). All of these implications are essential to the delivery of healthcare to children. Christian healthcare administrators should heed to all precautions and measures that are required to care for children so that transition into adulthood is smooth. Jesus loved children, and special needs of children should be meticulously addressed, because of the unique issues that present in regards to health. “Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these” (Matthew 19:14, NLT).

Christ Jesus has all the answers to whatever the problems are. The problems should be taken to God in prayer. The barriers that maybe present that serve children include distinct eligibility, administrative and funding criteria. According to Shi & Singh (2015), “the patchwork of disconnected programs also makes it difficult to obtain health care in an integrated and coordinated fashion” (p. 431). The reading assignment discussed three broad sectors.
The three sectors that the program can be categorized into the following areas, the personal medical and preventive services sector, the population-based community health services sector and the health-related support services sector. The personal medical and preventive services sector is affiliated with hospitals, private/public medical offices and health centers. The facility deals with primary and specialty medical services. The population-based health services have two basic services. The services are disease prevention services and community-wide health promotion. The facility helps children with chronic diseases and infants with disabilities, child abuse and child neglect. According to Shi & Singh (2015), “the health-related support services sector includes such services as nutrition education, early intervention, rehabilitation, and family support programs (p. 432).

Health care delivery system is the organized system which provides health facilities or services to the patients for assuring the nation’s healthcare. Children are very different from adults. The different ways are with the behavior, mannerism and health conditions. The unique characteristics are developmental vulnerability, dependency and new morbidities.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.

ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CLASS

Discussion Questions (DQ)

Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.
Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.
One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.
I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.
Weekly Participation

Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.
In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.
Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).
Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.
APA Format and Writing Quality

Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).
Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.
I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.
Use of Direct Quotes

I discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.
As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.
It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.
LopesWrite Policy

For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.
Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.
Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?
Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.
Late Policy

The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.
Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.
If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.
I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.
As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.
Communication

Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me:Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.
Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.
