7 steps of decision making for a reminder:

Understanding the influence of the HC model on the PT behavior allows for the application on every step of the decision making. Advocacy groups will identify and share the problem with the  government. Government legislative branch will clarify and define the problem with involvement of multiple stakeholders, votes on appropriate state of federal legislation. The Government executive branch will establish realistic goals and develop solutions to address them.  The same branch via enforcement, research and reporting agencies will evaluate and compare the proposed solutions. The Executive branch along with community stakeholders will chose plausible and appropriate final solution list, including the funding and implementation options. The providers and state/federal agencies will implement the solutions. The providers, reporting agencies and the enforcement agencies will evaluate the outcomes of the implemented program.
