Health care facilities can now be sanctioned by government for discriminatory policies. Why is it Important to Study Minority Health o Minorities in United States are gradually becoming the majority; every racial/ethnic group has a higher fertility rate than Whites. o Whites will account for less than 50% of the population by the middle of this century. o Since minorities will be the majority soon, minority health will be the "nation's" health, and minorities generally have worse health status than Whites. o Adding to the stress of new lives entering the world, baby boomers are currently reaching their senior years. o Aging society and increasing minority population will stress the healthcare system that is already struggling.

    Excerpt: ... individuals who are currently retired. Initially, the money that the working population contributed was immediately distributed to the retired population. However, as the " baby boomers " began to age the government established a surplus account, also called a trust fund. Because the government was worried there may not be enough money for all of the " baby boomers " once they were retired. This meant the percentage from each paycheck a person gave to Social Security increased. In addition, not all of the money that working individuals gave to the social security program was immediately distributed to the retired individuals. This created a surplus of money in the nation's Social Security account. Instead of saving the surplus, as they originally intended, the government proceeded to spend the money and replace it with promissory notes. Therefore, as the " baby boomers " continue to retire there will be less and less money to distribute unless the Social Security program undergoes change. Culture, heritage, moral, ...

    Excerpt: ... Alexandra Salas Dr. Gupta February 19, 2008 MGMT 414 Outsourcing in the Sleep Market Abstract The U.S demographic trend of aging baby boomers is largely impacting the business models of medical facilities. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics, 90% of all facilities employing health care workers will have inadequate staffing levels by the year 2030. This will be due to a large increase in patients. The healthcare workforce deficit has caused several areas like medical transcription services, remote diagnosis, analysis of healthcare data, and management of records to be outsourced. Health care workers located in foreign countries are now successfully performing most of these areas. This paper will be focusing on the remote monitoring of overnight sleep studies and the outsourcing of scoring and interpretation of polysomnograms (PSG), the combination of procedures that test a patient's sleep cycles and stages. The increase in the need for qualified health care personnel and the rapid growth of t ...

Generations do provide one avenue for examining the situated nature of learning in training domains, but many other trainee variables gender, race, socioeconomic level, work environment as well as personal characteristics of the trainer, may have at least as much impact on training preferences. Although there was general agreement among training professionals regarding what constitutes linear and nonlinear training techniques, preferences for linearity in training techniques appeared to transcend generational boundaries. The significance of this study was to help develop on-target training techniques that can be combined to implement broader training strategies. As it turns out, the World War II Generation, Baby Boomers , and Generation X are more alike than different when it comes to preferences for specific training techniques. This discovery could play a fundamental role in providing common ground across the three most established g ...
