Health Services Advertising


Health Services Advertising

Your M1 Practitioner Application will require devoted inquiry, assimilation, reflection, and refinement in order to achieve the highest possible score. Specifically, you are to take the scenario listed below, address it in full, and submit your work in accordance with the instructions contained herein.

The Challenge

Your text readings specifically profile the rise of marketing in the healthcare industry and they also enlighten you regarding that which marketing entails. But for this particular Practitioner Application, I want you to focus specifically on the concept of advertising, which is part of the promotion component of the broader discipline of marketing. The use of advertising to promote health services remains problematic for some, others have no issues with it, and still others are somewhere between these two extremes. I? like for you to research the pros and cons associated with health services advertising and report your findings. Then, communicate where you stand on the issue and justify your position.

The Submission Requirement

Your submission in its entirety must be between 1500-1800 words. It is to be typed (or pasted) directly into the Moodle posting window, after which you will submit your work. Attachments of any kind are prohibited and will carry no points value. Given the length of the submission, it is advised that students prepare it in a word processing program, and when finalized, copy and paste the text into the Moodle posting window. Moodle can be very finicky and often will distort formatting, so care must be taken in preparing your submission. If problems persist, consider using Windows Notepad, as it is very effective for transferring distortion-free text into the Moodle posting window, after which you can add formatting directly in Moodle.

Your submission must be supported by 4 (minimum) to 10 (maximum) references, with at least 3 being from scholarly academic journals. (If you cannot ascertain whether a journal does or does not qualify as scholarly academic, contact the Noel Library and request assistance.) References may be prepared using the style guide of your choice (e.g., APA, MLA); just be sure to consistently use the selected style.

In presenting your work, identify the title, your name and student ID number, and submission date at the top of your submission and supply the following sections, exactly as they appear below, placing each heading in bold text:

  • Introduction
  • Health Services Advertising “Pros”
  • Health Services Advertising “Cons”
  • My Position on Health Services Advertising
  • Conclusions
  • References
