Q1. Define public health law in your own words.
Q2. How does Tort Law impact health care workers?
Respond to this peer below, Written by Ashley Paton.
Public health laws are any laws that aim to protect and preserve the public’s health. Public health law was proven to be indispensable to public health, demonstrated by the contribution of law to each of the 10 greatest public health achievements. Public health laws can derive from federal and state constitutions, as well as statutes, regulations, rules, and policies. Krueger et al. (2017) discusses the importance of health care law and practice in the promotion of mental health and well-being. Programs and laws can aid in stress management skills and address social and economic conditions. Examples of laws and policies that promote public health are parenting support, education, including home visits, and improving law enforcement and community relationships with educational training. Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) helps students affected by trauma to attend school regularly and learn effectively. ESSA is a federal education law that focuses on helping those at an economic disadvantage and aiding in social and emotional learning skills, relationship skills, decision-making skills and self-awareness (Krueger et al. 2017).
