Health Care for Vulnerable Populations

Disparities in Health Care for Vulnerable Populations in the U.S: Who Gets What and Why? What are the Ethical Considerations? This paper should address causes and consequences of existing health care disparities for vulnerable populations in the US. In addition, the paper should address the ethical implications of these disparities. The paper should be a minimum of 8-10 pages each (excluding required title page and references, as well as any addendums needed). (I usually write 12-13 pages total that include the references.) At least seven, current (<5 years old or less with <3 years preferred) references are needed to earn full points on the assignment. More importantly than the number of references used, however, is how references are used. References should provide meaningful theoretical support for your arguments; they should not simply be an add in citation to meet a referencing requirement. Each paper should begin with an introduction, present a thesis or response to the topic, and end with a conclusion. The subheadings outlined in the rubric for each paper provide you with an outline for each papers development. Accurate APA formatting and scholarly writing are expectations of all professional papers in the MSN program. (I will send the rubric in an attached file) (I will also include a recent paper I wrote that was perfectly scored as an example of how I write and for how I want to to flow) (I do not use quotations) (no first person. This paper must follow APA guidelines) (This is for your information. Please note that there is a difference between health disparities and healthcare disparities.
