Introduction
According to one author, evaluation tells you if you are on the right track (Cabinet, n.d.). Also, the success of an initiative is determined by the extent to which intended and unintended policy outcomes are achieved and how they have affected stakeholders (Cabinet, n.d.). Evaluation performs several functions in policy analysis, it provides reliable information about policy performance. The objective of evaluation here is to measure the impact of policies on society. It reveals the goal achievement level and helps to understand the degree to which policy issues have been resolved (Policy, n.d.). Evaluation also helps to clarify the values that underline the selection of goals and objectives. Since appropriateness of policy goals and objectives can be questioned in relation to the problem being addressed, evaluation provides procedures for valuing the goals objectives on its own. (Policy, n.d). Assessing the effectiveness of a policy will be the focus of this assignment.

Using the Park University Library and other sources, research the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act of 2005. Read through the Act. Provide a brief summary of the Act. Then using one of the models from your discussion question, determine if this policy has been effective. Provide data from the Internet and other sources to support your position.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
