What do the words "problem," "policy," and "program," mean within the context of health and human services?
Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Just look for all the meanings of each word in a good dictionary (there are also dictionaries on the Web) and select the best meaning depending upon the context. If you aren't sure of a definition, we'll be glad to critique your work
Can anyone see if this is correct.
A problem is when a question has to be considered before answering or finding a solution. A policy is considered to be a system of laws that concerns a given topic by a governmental entity or its representatives. A program is a public service program that is made aware to the public.
Yes. You seem to have defined your terms correctly as they apply to human services. :-)
The only thing I'd change is to get rid of the word, when in the first sentence. The sentence should say, "A problem is a question that has to be considered before answering or finding a solution."
Thanks for the help.
