Bioethics: physician assisted suicide
The goal of this assignment is to simulate an advocacy meeting with a member of Congress based on your selected bioethical issue. Each student will:

1) Develop a one-page policy brief, also known as a one-page ASK, using the instructions in the RWJ Connect Manual (see resources).

2) Develop a script for a meeting between the student as the nurse advocate for a group cause, and a person that can influence policy (i.e., Legislator, Congressperson, and State Representative). As professional nurses, it is important to continue to improve verbal expression.

3) Therefore, students will role-play communicating this advocacy issue to the targeted stakeholder. Using RWJF Connect Manual pages 11-36, develop a strategy for this meeting. The final assignment should be comprised of a) script, b) a one-page “Ask”, and c) a video recording.

This project will be completed in three parts:

What is an ASK? An ask is policy-speak for a specific request that you make of your policymaker during your meeting. Whether you’re talking with a member in person or with a staffer, they will be waiting for you to make the They expect it, and in some cases, they will even prompt you…The bottom line—always be prepared with a good ask (See RWJM readings for full text).
