This policy links to my health topic as one of the development goals is physical activity and play and while I may be working with slightly younger children, this policy is still relevant as this skill must still be developed.

Imperative non-pharmacologic measures along with the right kind of medications benefit patients in the management of disease. A review of literature was conducted on the topic of dietary compliance in preventing fluid overload in diseases like end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and congestive heart failure (CHF). Focus was narrowed down on topics related to congestive heart failure because of its part as a core measure in the acute hospital setting for prevention of readmissions within a 30-day period per Medicare requirements.

Using the multivariate logistic regression synthesis, it is clear that demographic and social predictors are behind disparities in seeking the services across the vast nation. The CDC abortion surveillance reports that in 2013, a total of 664,435 legal practiced abortions were recorded from their 49 reporting centers. The rate for the same year was 12.5 per 1000 women with the ages 15-44 years while the abortion rate at 200:1000 live births. The black women are 3.75 times more likely to terminate their pregnancy than their white counterparts. About 90% of the abortions occur in the first trimester.

Approximately 100,000 heart valve replacements are performed each year in the U.S.
Years of potential life lost is a calculation of the “weighted total of the number of deaths by age, with the weight for each age determined by the particular method of valuing potential remaining years of life (Gardner, J. and Sanborn, J).” In addition, years of potential life lost is used to “emphasize deaths at younger ages (Gardner, J. and Sanborn, J).” According to Changing the U.S. Health Care System, “the two largest contributors to the disproportionately high YPLL rate among African Americans are cancer and heart disease (2014).” Cancer is the most important contributor to YPLL because it is the “second leading cause of death but accounts for the largest YPLL per 100,000 for both males and females (Healthy People
