Utilizing the content from your assigned readings and online lectures, explain how you would manage an upset physician who wants to know why her schedule is behind and each department (Administrative Assistants, Nurses, Medical Assistants) are blaming one another for the delay. What can individuals and an organization do to prevent these types of issues and conflict from occurring?

Working in healthcare can be stressful at times, especially when you are trying to maintain multiple practitioners’ schedules and patient visits. Many times, schedules get delayed, which causes some frustration for the practitioner, staff, and patients. Effectively working with your coworkers will help to alleviate these issues.

Parker Family Episode 2 Program Transcript PARKER: Ever since my husband died, there’s been no one to talk to. It’s just, really, no one. And when Stephanie is home, I just feel so alone. FEMALE SPEAKER: What about the day center you go to? Isn’t that helping? PARKER: I don’t like it. What makes me really feel good, though, is when I go shopping, buying things. And my kittens. I love my cats. Oh, have you seen them? I have pictures. Just take a look. Look! These are so cute. My babies. FEMALE SPEAKER: Yes, they’re very cute. And wow, you have a lot of them.  PARKER: Oh, well, it’s their home, too, not just Princess Stephanie’s.  FEMALE SPEAKER: The day program you’re attending, are you seeing a  psychiatrist there?  PARKER: Yes. Dr. Lewin.  FEMALE SPEAKER: May I ask how that’s going?  PARKER: He says that I’m depressed.  FEMALE SPEAKER: In the pictures you showed me, you just talked about the  cats, but I also saw all the things you keep around you, the hoarding. I understand how depressed you been since your husband passed away. How alone you’ve felt. [SIGH] But I would like us to try and set up a plan to begin to address the hoarding. It’s very clear that that’s one of the big issues that’s affecting your relationship with Stephanie and your life together. Can we try that? PARKER: I don’t like it when we fight. She’s still my baby, too. Yes, I want to try.

  • Explain how you, as Sara’s social worker, might apply a theory of successful aging to her case. Be sure to provide support for your strategy.

roles of men and women as they move into Parenthood

Chapter 11 discussed the roles of men and women as they move into Parenthood.  According to the textbook, what statistical forces predict how involved a father is likely to be?  Briefly describe how you were raised (single family, 2 parents, supporting family members, etc.) and think about how these experiences impacted (positively and/or negatively) how you interact with your own children/family.

Each initial discussion response must be 250 words, not including restatements of questions, and each must contain two (2) formalized APA references with citations.

Discuss your library search strategies and briefly summarize the literature you reviewed. Focus your discussion on the “problem” and how the literature you identified provides evidence of the existence of the problem

Based on your specialty role option (i.e., Nurse Practitioner, Nurse Educator, Nurse Informaticist, Nurse Administrator), identify a potential problem (topic) that you would like to investigate through nursing research. Begin by reading the American Association of Colleges of Nursing’s (AACN) position statement on nursing research (Nursing Research).

Next explore South’s Online Library and conduct a search to locate a minimum of three nursing research articles that have addressed the problem you have identified. The literature may not be older than 5 years. After reading the literature respond to the following:

  1. Note your role specialization and briefly describe the problem you are interested in researching and why this is of interest to you.
  2. Discuss your library search strategies and briefly summarize the literature you reviewed. Focus your discussion on the “problem” and how the literature you identified provides evidence of the existence of the problem.
  3. Include in your discussion a potential innovation that you might consider as a solution to the problem identified.
  4. Include citations/references in APA style format, using citations where appropriate.

Each student in this course is required to complete a comprehensive research, analysis and writing assignment.  This paper is to focus on a specific crisis and provide an in-depth examination of alternative means of how it might have been managed.  It will count for 30 percent of the student’s grade for the semester. 

Each student in this course is required to complete a comprehensive research, analysis and writing assignment.  This paper is to focus on a specific crisis and provide an in-depth examination of alternative means of how it might have been managed.  It will count for 30 percent of the student’s grade for the semester.

The following is designed to assist students carrying out this assignment.

  1. Students should identify and research a specific crisis that will serve as the general subject for this analysis.  Students are free to select a crisis of their own interest and choosing.  However, it is suggested that this crisis be sufficiently in the past and sufficiently well documented to allow for as much dispassionate analysis and assessment as possible.
  2. It is recommended that once research is completed, students select a specific participant and/or perspective on which to center their analysis and that they concentrate on one significant decision or turning point as the focus for this assignment.
  3. Students should then explore what other alternatives might have been – or should have been – available to the entity involved.

The paper will then detail a number of such alternate scenarios and examine:

  • What would have had to have been different for that alternative to have been undertaken
  • What its implications would have been (both positive and negative)
  • Whether there would have been any ethical issues or decisions involved
  • How other participants in the crisis might have reacted to such an approach
  • What strategies, tactics and activities the entity might have taken to maximize its gains and minimize its losses within this scenario
  • An assessment of how effective such an alternative might have been in preventing, managing, and/or capitalizing on the crisis

There is no required length for this paper.  However, it should reflect the fact that students have almost an entire semester in which to work on it, that it will account for 30 percent of each student’s final grade.

Finally, as with all academic work, students must appropriately attribute all outside sources or material that is not their own original thoughts or work. However, it is left to the student as to the specific form such citations take (i.e. footnotes, end notes, parenthetical inclusions, etc.).

Briefly summarize the primary health effects associated with overexposure to each type of metal fume, including both acute and chronic health effects. Explain what analytical methods you would use for evaluating health hazards in the workplace.

1.) Welding fumes are a common occupational exposure. Several different welding fumes can cause similar adverse health effects. Personal sampling of a welding operation at a manufacturing facility produced the following 8-hour time-weighted average (TWA) results for individual metal fumes. Please see attached document for sampling results.

Briefly summarize the primary health effects associated with overexposure to each type of metal fume, including both acute and chronic health effects. Explain what analytical methods you would use for evaluating health hazards in the workplace.

Identify the types of metal fumes that would produce similar health effects on an exposed worker. Assume that each listed metal can cause respiratory irritation. Use the equation in 1910.1000(d)(2)(i) to calculate the equivalent exposure (in relation to OSHA PELS) for the metal fumes with similar health effects based on the “Result” column in the table above. Discuss whether you believe any of the individual metal fume exposures or the combined exposure exceeds an OSHA PEL or an ACGIH TLV.

Your homework assignment should be a minimum of two pages in length.

2.) Choose an operation for a workplace where you once worked or with which you are familiar where either chemical hazards or noise exposures were present. If you have never worked in a location where chemical hazards or noise are present, read about some examples on OSHA’s website and choose one that interests you. Complete the following tasks in a minimum two-page (500 word) essay: 

· Summarize the steps you would take to perform a hazard assessment of your chosen operation. Make sure you list the chemical hazards or noise hazards that are present using the example hazard assessment from OSHA’s website or one with which you are already familiar.

·  Discuss the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) for controlling occupational hazards in relation to the operation you chose. 

·  Choose one hazard that you identified. The hazard can be a chemical or noise hazard. Summarize how you would evaluate employee exposures to the hazard. Include information about any sampling method you would use, how many samples you would collect, the types of samples you would collect (e.g., personal or area, TWA or short-term), and to which standards you would apply the results. 

· Assume there are several results indicating that employees are exposed to levels exceeding the applicable OSHAPEL. Using OSHA’s Hierarchy of Controls, summarize the control methods you would employ to reduce the risk for employees to an acceptable level. Your summary should include examples from each level of OSHA’s Hierarchy of Controls with a discussion of why you think the control would or would not be an effective method for reducing the exposure to an acceptable level. 

· Discuss how you would evaluate the effectiveness of the control methods you chose, both in the short-term and for the next 5 years.

Your essay must be in APA format, and include a minimum of two sourc

A case study is a collection of facts and data based on a real or hypothetical business situation

 

How to Solve an Organizational Case Study – Second Case

A case study is a collection of facts and data based on a real or hypothetical business situation.  The goal of a case study is to enhance your ability to solve business problems, using a logical framework.  The issues in a case are generally not unique to a specific person, firm, or industry, and they often deal with more than one business strategy element.  Sometimes, the material presented in a case may be in conflict.  For example, two managers may disagree about a strategy or there may be several interpretations of the same facts.

In all case studies, you must analyze what is presented and state which specific actions best resolve major issues.  These actions must reflect the information in the case and the environment facing the firm.

The case should not exceed seven (7) pages in length, excluding the reference list.

STEPS IN SOLVING A CASE STUDY

Your analysis should include these sequential steps:

1. Presentation of the facts surrounding the case. (~0.5 page)

2. Identification of the key issues. (~0.5 page)

3. Listing of alternative courses of action that could be taken. (~1 page)

4. Evaluation of alternative courses of action. (~1.5 pages)

5. Recommendation of the best course of action. (~1.5 pages)

Presentation of the Facts Surrounding the Case

It is helpful to read a case until you are comfortable with the information in it.  Re-readings often are an aid to comprehending facts, possible strategies, or questions that need clarification and were not apparent earlier.  In studying a case, assume you are an outside consultant hired by the firm.  While facts should be accepted as true, statements, judgments, and decisions made by the individuals in a case should be questioned, especially if not supported by facts—or when one individual disagrees with another.

During your reading of the case, you should underline crucial facts, interpret figures and charts, critically review the comments made by individuals, judge the rationality of past and current decisions, and prepare questions whose answers would be useful in addressing the key issue(s).

Identification of the Key Issue(s)

The facts stated in a case often point to the key issue(s) facing an organization, such as new opportunities, a changing environment, a decline in competitive position, or excess inventories.  Identify the characteristics and ramifications of the issue(s) and examine them, using the material in the case and the text.  Sometimes, you must delve deeply because the key issue(s) and their characteristics may not be immediately obvious.

 

Listing Alternative Courses of Action That Could Be Taken

Next, present alternative actions pertaining to the key issue(s) in the case.  Consider courses of action based on their suitability to the firm and situation.  Proposed courses of action should take into account such factors as the goals, the customer market, the overall organizational strategy, the product assortment, competition, and personnel capabilities.

Evaluation of Alternative Courses of Action

Evaluate each potential option, according to case data, the key issue(s), the strategic concepts in the text, and the firm’s environment.  Specific criteria should be used and each option analyzed on the basis of them.  The ramifications and risks associated with each alternative should be considered.  Important data not included in the case should be mentioned. Your discussion of the alternatives should include concepts from organizational diagnosis and change theory.

Recommendation of the Best Course of Action

Be sure your analysis is not just a case summary.  You will be evaluated on the basis of how well you identify key issues or problems, outline and assess alternative courses of action, and reach realistic conclusions (that take the organization’s size, competition, image, and so on into consideration).  You need to show a good understanding of both the principles of organizational diagnosis and the case.  Be precise about which alternative is more desirable for the organization in its current context.  Remember, your goal is to apply a logical reasoning process to this organization. A written report must demonstrate this process.
