Go on to describe how those legislation, policies and procedures promote the safety of individuals in your health or social care setting.

Regulations monitor and regulate the laws. It is responsible to ensure and enforce the law as it goes. Basically, regulation is making sure that that each law or legislation is put into effect and the process and details on how it is put into effect. 2. I believe the reasons CMS is concerned with regulating the cost of long term care is because of nursing homes regulation.
(EveryChildMatters, 2005.) Users of health and social care should be given best qualities of care by implementing policies, legislations, and regulations which are related to the services. In my workplace, employees must follow the Data Protection act 1998, which says no employees should reveal important information of any service users only to those who should know or have the right to have the information.

Many nurses do not get involved in health care policy even though the nurse should. Most nurses do not know much about health care policies, some view it as “foreign and complex” (Falk, 2014, p. 203). I consider myself one of the nurses that do not know much about health care policy and I am one of the nurses that do not get involved in health care policy. I do not get involved with health care policy because I was never taught about it, so I do not want to get involved in something that I do not know much about. I look forward to learn more about health policies and becoming more involved in health policies.
In the film Escape Fire the Fight to Rescue American Healthcare, there were many insightful examples of why our Unites States healthcare revolves around paying more and getting less.

One of the problems that existed at the time was the urge to influence laws with the power of philanthropy. An example of this is the court ruling against the validity of a gift for women’s rights because it was aimed to “directly and exclusively change the laws”. During this time, being philanthropic in order to gain political power, or change laws, was not accepted. There were certain rules against whether or not a charitable gift was even considered “charitable” depending on the purpose it was meant to serve. One way that people found their way around this limit on philanthropy was to educate the public rather than directly influence the lawmakers, as the people had
Previously, majority of healthcare systems were driven by other goals such as ensuring enhanced care access, containing the costs of healthcare delivery, and promoting patient convenience/customer service in a bid to improve the efficiency and quality of healthcare. However, the financial collapse had far-reaching consequences for the healthcare systems as it

Health promotion and health education have many similarities, despite them being distinctly different. Health promotion and health education are both very important, especially when being used as tools in the hands of different authority figures and policy makers. Health promotion and health education both advocate for health in a systematic way or as a planned application, however we learned in class that anyone can promote health, but not everyone can be a health educator when it comes to health education. Health promotion entails methods by enabling individuals to gain control over the determinants of their overall health. The prerequisites of health are addressed by developing healthy public policies.
