Research any available trusted data or other reliable information that supports your updated definition of the policy problem, which includes the perspective of other disciplines and the impact or consequences of failing to address the issue with a policy intervention. Consider your primary objective for defining the problem; is it clearly stated and supported by your evidence? Have you used evidence ethically and responsibly, avoiding misrepresentation of available data and scientific evidence? Keep in mind what you have learned from your interprofessional groupmates about the description of the problem and include relevant evidence that reflects the perspective of disciplines, if it is helpful for your approach.
Prepare a +/- 750-word summary of the data and information, including any charts or graphs depicting the data, and a brief summary of the evidence base, including relevant citations. If your policy recommendations are likely to require significant outlay of funds, be sure to include at least some preliminary financial data, or likely fiscal impact.
State Representative Jan Jones (not a real person) from District X in State Y (not one listed above) has proposed a bill for statewide requirement for all public schools to conduct annual BMI screening in grades K-12. BMI results will be reported to parents. Those students whose BMI is above the 85th percentile on the CDC BMI-for-age growth charts for children by gender will be referred to a registered dietitian for medical nutrition therapy. Deidentified, aggregate BMI data will be collected by the state’s Center for Disease Control. A public hearing on the proposed bill has been scheduled before the state’s Health and Human Services Committee and you will attend and present testimony.
