(MY RELATED FIELD IS MENTAL HEALTH AND WELLNESS)
Research and find an instance of a policy compliance issue that has occurred in an organization related to the field you are pursuing as your career (Government, Nonprofit, Health). Find an issue that has enough detail for you to do a thorough examination of the policy and the compliance issues involved. Review the policy compliance issue that occurred and offer an update to the policy in the form of a policy memo and an evaluation of the issue by doing the following:
Analyze the problem you chose and write a 500-750-word policy memo that proposes improvements to the policy to better address the problem and improve the compliance issues. Be concise and follow the general structure of a policy memo. At a minimum, your policy memo should contain the following:
- A title
- A summary of the problem
- At least three possible solutions
- Statement and explanation of the recommended solution with rationale
- The implications and benefits of the recommended policy
- Brief conclusion
- At least three sources used to support claims
- Graphics and/or other visual elements so it reflects the formatting of a professional policy memo
Create a presentation that briefly outlines the policy. Include your decision-making process for presenting the information contained in the policy.
Explain the specific policy compliance issues that occurred and why your proposed update will help improve the compliance issues.
Use two to three scholarly resources to support your decision-making process, some of the sources may be the same as sources used to support your recommendations in the policy memo.
You will turn in both your policy memo and presentation. See the document “submitting multiple attachments” for assistance in attaching multiple documents to the assignment dropbox.
Your presentation will require an outline of your presentation speech or speaker notes depending on the format chosen for the presentation. For PowerPoint, 8-12 slides are required with speaker notes of 50-75 words for each slide. Reference information must be provided at the end of the presentation. Reference and title slides do not count as part of the slide count.
While APA style is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and documentation of sources should be presented using APA formatting guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
