healthcare and communication

Module 5 DQ 1 and DQ 2

Tutor MUST have a good command of the English language

Each post should average 150-250 words

  • Please remember that      sources like the CDC or WHO are great places to get information from, but      they are not considered scholarly sources. Scholarly sources are      peer-reviewed and written by experts in the field.
    • You can certainly       continue to use them as references
  • Please avoid very lengthy paragraphs because it causes      several ideas to be clumped together as one and that is not very clear to      understand. Instead, your paragraphs      should be about 5-7 sentences long with transition statements to guide the      reader into the next though.
  • Unless otherwise      specified, when asked to give examples it is best to give 2 or 3 strong examples with strong      supporting evidence backed by your literature review, as opposed to 6 or 7      examples loosely stated.
  • Citation – Remember      to cite content that is not your      original idea, and that is      not common knowledge.
    • If you state that       “The use of healthcare continues to rise because of technology,       access to care and population increase” — this needs to be cited. We as healthcare professionals       may understand this, but others may       not necessarily know this information. They need to know this was       obtained from a source and not just your thought.
    • If you make       inferences or draw conclusions you may state – “some factors that       must be considered include       technology, increased population and technological advances” – this       is not a definitive statement. This       shows that you have considered several factors involved and you can then       use your references to further elaborate on each factor.

Each post should include appropriate foundation knowledge, be factual, and enhance the ongoing dialogue. Each post should demonstrate either the application and/or reflection of knowledge. Your responses should expand on a classmate’s comments or advance the dialogue through follow-up questions Your responses should be open-ended to encourage continuing the conversation. Very few grammatical/spelling errors

emergency plan

submit Part II of your emergency plan: A draft with brief description of items to be covered in each of the eight areas of the plan. Part II of the Emergency Plan, which is part of the final course project, requires that students expand upon the eight areas that were identified in Part I in Unit II. Students must first review any feedback provided by the instructor to the Part I submission to ensure that the identified areas were appropriate before proceeding with Part II. In Part II of the emergency plan, students will be required to provide an overview of the actions or steps that must be considered when planning for each of the eight areas identified in Part I. For each area, this will include (but will not be limited to): (1) identifying the impacted segment(s) of the Metropolis, FL population, business community, government agency, or other relevant entities; (2) explaining why the identified segment(s) are the focus of this area of the plan; and (3) providing a high-level overview of the proposed actions for each area. Note: The full description of plan steps for each area will be part of the final emergency plan submitted in Unit VIII. Students must use references to other existing plans, information provided by the Department of Homeland Security or other relevant agencies, or any other reputable information available to support why the identified segment(s) are impacted in each of the eight selected parts of the plan. Students must also explain why the proposed actions are appropriate. The instructor will provide feedback to the students regarding whether the appropriate segment(s) and actions have been identified for each proposed component of the plan. Students are expected to incorporate instructor feedback into the final version of Part II, which will be submitted with the full emergency plan in Unit VIII. Part II of the emergency plan should be formatted in APA style and four to six pages in length, not counting the cover and reference pages. Please review the general guidelines for papers to obtain a description of other formatting requirements. Information about accessing the Blackboard Grading Rubric for this assignment is provided below.

Critique Template for a Qualitative Study

Critiquing the validity and robustness of research featured in journal articles provides a critical foundation for engaging in evidence-based practice. In Weeks 5 and 6, you explored quantitative research designs. In Week 7, you will examine qualitative and mixed methods research designs. For this Assignment you critique a quantitative and either a qualitative or a mixed methods research study and compare the types of information obtained in each.

To prepare:

· Select a health topic of interest to you that is relevant to your current area of practice. The topic may be your Course Portfolio Project or a different topic of your choice.

· Using the Walden Library, locate two articles in scholarly journals that deal with your portfolio topic: 1) Select one article that utilizes a quantitative research design and 2) select a second article that utilizes either a qualitative OR a mixed methods design. These need to be single studies not systematic or integrative reviews (including meta-analysis and metasynthesis). You may use research articles from your reference list. If you cannot find these two types of research on your portfolio topic, you may choose another topic.

· Locate the following documents in this week’s Learning Resources to access the appropriate templates, which will guide your critique of each article:

o Critique Template for a Qualitative Study

o Critique Template for a Quantitative Study

o Critique Template for a Mixed-Methods Study

· Consider the fields in the templates as you review the information in each article. Begin to draft a paper in which you analyze the two research approaches as indicated below. Reflect on the overall value of both quantitative and qualitative research. If someone were to say to you, “Qualitative research is not real science,” how would you respond?

To complete this Assignment:

· Complete the two critiques using the appropriate templates.

· Write a 2- to 3-page paper that addresses the following:

· Contrast the types of information that you gained from examining the two different research approaches in the articles that you selected.

o Describe the general advantages and disadvantages of the two research approaches featured in the articles. Use examples from the articles for support.

o Formulate a response to the claim that qualitative research is not real science. Highlight the general insights that both quantitative and qualitative studies can provide to researchers. Support your response with references to the Learning Resources and other credible sources.

· Reminder: The School of Nursing requires that all papers submitted include a title page, introduction, summary, and references. The School of Nursing Sample Paper provided at the Walden Writing Center provides an example of those required elements (available from the Walden University website found in this week’s Learning Resources). All papers submitted must use this formatting.

· Combine all three parts of this assignment into one Word document including both critique templates and the narrative with your references. Submit this combined document.

Benefits Of Regulatory Agencies

APA Format/2 references/ 2 pages

Some of us think that there is too much government when it comes to providing health care services. There are very strict rules for new drugs and clinical trials as well.

Create a 2 page paper that explains your viewpoint on the Benefits of Regulatory Agencies providing Health Care Services or the Issues with Regulatory agencies in providing Health Care Services.

What impact do these laws have on ethical standards? Use at least 2 references and submit the paper in APA format.

Credible And Reliable Nutrition Sources

Perform a quick Internet search, using Google or another major search engine. Select a search term related to nutrition science (for example, diet, organic, sodium) and see what kind of results you receive. When considering a term to select, think about single words rather than phrases. In some cases your search term may contain two words (for example, unsaturated fat). Avoid phrases like “which diet will help me lose weight the fastest” or “top 10 foods to make me healthy.”

Write a short essay (at least 250 words), using complete paragraphs and appropriate organization. Avoid incomplete sentences or bulleted lists (except for your search term and how many results were obtained). Check your spelling and grammar before submitting. References are required in APA format.

Please provide the following information (listed in bulleted form):

  • your search term
  • how many results you obtained

Then review some of these sources, going no further than three pages into the search result. Critically evaluate the websites you have selected. Find one website that you consider a reliable/credible source and one that you consider false, misleading, or non-factual. Keep in mind that when searching for credible sources you should also determine if your source would be appropriate to use as a scholarly reference (to support your discussions and homework assignments). Please provide the following for BOTH the credible and non-credible choices:

  • the name of the website and the link
  • the author or group providing this information
  • Is this a reliable/credible source? If so, how do you know? OR Is this a non-credible source? If so, how do you know?
  • What was the hardest part about sifting through nutrition information?

Health Education In The Community. Health Promotion And Wellness

 

1-In your own words and using the appropriate evidence-based practice reference please define health promotion and wellness and give some examples.  Mention at least two health issues and how they could be addressed through both professional health promotion and personal health promotion. What is the difference in the approach? How does each approach contribute to the desired effect?

2.  Should health insurance companies cover services that are purely for health promotion purposes? Why or why not? What about employers? What are the pros and cons of this type of coverage?

3.  What do you think about the role of integrating nursing with faith? Do you feel is appropriate? When is it appropriate? In what types of settings do you feel this would work best in? Do you feel all nurses should integrate faith in their nursing practice? Why or why not and how?

4.  In your own words and using the appropriate evidence-based references please define groups and identified and describe at least two groups in your community.  Why do nurses need to know about group dynamics and how to work in a group?

This assignment must be presented in an APA format word document, Arial 12 font.

A minimum of 3 evidence-based references no older than 5 years (excluding the class textbook) is required. You must post at least two replies to any of your peers sustained with the proper references.  A minimum of 600 words is required (excluding first and last page).
