Week 08 Team Testimony Part 1 – Peer-Reviewed Articles

Overview:

In this week we will examine the challenges and consider what policies might help us address the needs of vulnerable populations.

With an aging population and increasing chronic illnesses, these vulnerable populations will continue to increase; yet our healthcare system does not have a clear policy or effective system to address the complex health needs and meet the cost of care.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), more than one billion people—15% of the world’s population—live with some form of disability. With an aging population and increasing chronic illnesses, these rates will continue to rise; yet our healthcare system does not have a clear policy or effective system to address the complex health needs and meet the cost of care. In this unit, we will examine the challenges and consider what policies might help us address the needs of these vulnerable populations.
