Advocacy has always been an important piece of the healthcare professional’s role. But, with globalization, widening advocacy efforts have become increasingly important.
The journal assignments provide you an opportunity to focus on how you can advocate for global health and policy in your current or future role as a health professional.
Use the journal assignment to explain what global health is and how it relates to population health. Refer to the course outcomes and reflect on how they apply to your current or future profession. In relation to the patient or client, what is your role as a healthcare professional? What do you know and understand about advocacy? What opportunities for advocacy do you see in your current or future career?
