Chronic Kidney Disease & HP 2010

Uploaded by :

A 12 page research paper that both summarizes and critiques the Healthy People 2010 program in regards to Chronic Kidney Disease. The Healthy People 2010 (HP 2010) program is founded upon a set of 10-year evidence based objectives designed to improve the overall health status of Americans. There are two overarching goals for this program, which are to “increase the quality and years of healthy life” for all Americans, but especially in regards to those with chronic illness, and to eliminate health disparities between demographic groups (HP 2010, 2005). This critique of HP 2010 looks specifically at the focus area of chronic kidney disease in regard to the midcourse review that took place in 2005. Bibliography lists 6 sources.
