develop an outline for an "in-service"-style educational session on risk management

In this assignment, groups will develop an outline for an “in-service”-style educational session on risk management, which will form the basis for a CLC slide presentation in Topic 5. Before starting the assignment, you are required to submit your proposed presentation topic to the instructor for approval. You will select one risk management topic relevant to and chosen from the points analyzed in the Risk Management Program Analysis Part One assignment in Topic 1.

The approval step is required so that each group will profile a different risk management topic in order to enhance the depth of learning and contribute to the body of knowledge of each student. Submit your group’s proposed topic as early as possible after your group members have been selected, but no later than Day 7 of Topic 1 for full assignment credit. Once you receive instructor approval, only then should you initiate work on this assignment. (Note: Work submitted on an unapproved topic will receive zero credit.)

Once your topic has been approved by the faculty, you will develop a 500-750 word comprehensive outline that communicates the approved risk management topic. The outline is required to include a minimum of three objectives to discuss what your group considers to be key or core risk management elements that pertain to the point, or element, you selected to profile.

Required sections to include in your outline are listed below. If your topic requires additional sections, include them as well:

  1. Introduction.Objectives: Three objectives you intend to address in the proposed risk management educational session.Rationale: Rationale for each objective (i.e., Why are these three objectives key or core to the risk management issue?).Supportive Data: Data to support the need for the proposed educational session.Implementation Strategies: How will you implement the proposed educational session?Evaluation Strategies: What tools will you use to evaluate the proposed educational session?Challenges and Opportunities: Ideas or suggestions about areas of focus regarding risk management the organization could or should address moving forward into the future?

It may be helpful to preview the requirements for the Topic 3 assignment (Risk Management Program Analysis Part Two) and the Topic 4 assignment (Organizational Risk Management Interview), as the information may contribute to and enhance your final group presentation in Topic 5. It is highly encouraged that you also preview the Topic 5 assignment (Educational Program on Risk Management Part Two: Slide Presentation) to ensure your outline addresses all required elements for that final CLC submission. 

For assistance on developing a solid outline, “Four Main Components for Effective Outlines” and related material regarding outlines can be found on the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) website at https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/544/01/.

(Note: You are required to incorporate all instructor feedback from this assignment into the Topic 5 assignment, CLC – Educational Program on Risk Management Part Two – Slide Presentation. To save time later in the course, consider addressing any feedback soon after this assignment has been graded and returned to you.)

A minimum of six citations from the literature or appropriate websites is required to support your statements.

While APA format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and documentation of sources should be presented using APA formatting guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.

This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

You are required to submit this assignment to Turnitin. Please refer to the directions in the Student Success Center.

Nursing Theory Analysis

Nursing Theory Analysis Paper

Overview/Description:

The purpose of this assignment is to describe, evaluate and discuss application of a nursing grand or mid-range theory. This assignment also provides the learner an opportunity to connect theory and research to nursing phenomena.

Theory/Author Name and Background

  1. Select a Grand or Mid-Range Theory that is appropriate to your practice setting.Describe the theorist’s background in detail and discuss how their experiences have impacted the theory development.Examine crucial references for the original and/or current work of the theorist and other authors writing about the selected theory.Identify the phenomenon of concern or problems addressed by the theory.

Theory Description

  1. Explain whether the theory uses deductive, inductive or retroductive reasoning. Provide evidence to support your conclusion.Describe the major concepts of the theory. How are they defined? (theoretically and/or operationally) Is the author consistent in the use of the concepts and other terms in the theory?Interpret how the concepts are defined. Implicitly or explicitly?Examine the relationships (propositions) among the major concepts.

Evaluation

  1. Identify explicit and implicit assumptions (values/beliefs) underlying the theory. On what assumptions does the theory build?Examine if the theory has a description of the four concepts of the nursing metaparadigm. If so, how are they explained in the theory? If the metapardigm is not explained, what elements do you see as relevant to the theory and why?Discuss the clarity of the theory. Did it have lucidness and consistency?

Application

  1. Examine how the theory would guide nursing actions.Describe specifically how you can use this theory in your area of nursing (Practice, Education, Informatics or Administration).

paid for performance

Since P4P ( paid for performance) has been around for a number of years, one would think that its effectiveness should be clearly documented. However, Peter Kongstvedt says that results have been mixed. He concludes that “positive results remain ambiguous, at least on a broad basis.”

Review various P4P program results and effectiveness on the Internet or through your college’s Online Library, which you can access in the Resources tab.

Write a 1-page report of your findings. Specifically, address strengths and weaknesses of this compensation method, both from the point of view of the health plan and the physician. Cite at least two sources. List sources in APA format.

The Importance of Economics for Health Care Leaders

The Importance of Economics for Health Care Leaders

Prior to engaging in this discussion, be sure to review the Chapters 1 and 2 in the text as well as any relevant Instructor Guidance. It is suggested that you also review the recommended articles to glean any helpful information. In the present paradigm, it has become evident that operational leaders and strategic leaders in health care must be able to appraise how economics impacts health care in the United States. Furthermore, it is critical successful leaders to possess an understanding of the variables and nuances that shape how supply and demand in this heavily regulated industry so they may observe trends and opportunities that lead to a functional organizational system.

Imagine that you are a manager running a unit in a rehabilitation center. Up to this point, your primary population of payers has been elderly patients who come into the center for physical therapy. Recently, there has been a demographic shift in the community. A large number of your primary population has moved out of the area or died, which has caused a shift in your revenues. You have been tasked by your director to illustrate the cost and revenue numbers relative to insurance payouts to ensure that your cost does not exceed your revenue. Drawing on your current professional expertise and understanding drawn from the required resources for this week, create an initial post in which you communicate how the potential payer mix relates economically to changing demographics in your given community. What potential solutions would you suggest to your director that might overcome the demographic shift? Analyze economic theories that are germane to your provision of services and identify one theory that might apply to this specific situation.

Include the page where you found the information. 2) Identify a CPT procedure code Include the numerical code, description and Medicare allowable. Use the code search on the AMA website. For example, use this link https://ocm.ama-assn.org/OCM/CPTRelativeValueSearch.do?submitbutton=accept and enter a state, key words and click on Submit. List the code and description you find. You may use a different method to find a procedure code and description. If you do, include this with your code and description.
