1. Discuss how globalization has changed jobs in an organization where you have worked. What are some HR responses to those changes?

2.Why is it important for HR management to transform from being primarily administrative and operational to a more strategic contributor?

 

Identify which family member you felt most able to connect with and explain why.

 You were introduced to a family in this unit’s video on Bowenian family therapy (linked in Resources). Using this family and session, as well as your text readings on goal development and treatment planning, identify the presenting problem and devise three specific goals for this family based on the information from the demonstration. There should be one goal each addressing the early stage of treatment, the middle stage of treatment, and the latter treatment phases. Be sure to clearly and thoroughly discuss how you arrived at these three goals and how they align with the multigenerational family therapy model. 

 

 

1.Identify which family member you felt most able to connect with and explain why.

 

2.Identify which family member you felt most reactive to and explain why.

 

3.Explain your reactions to the way the therapist interacted with the family.

Note what in particular you liked about the way the therapist engaged with the family. How does this style match how you would like to engage with clients?

 

4.Please choose a dimension of your culture and discuss how your membership and experiences in this particular group influenced your reactions to the therapeutic interactions addressed in the above questions.

 

5.Choose at least two questions to address using this single dimension of culture. For example, you may examine how your gender influenced to whom you felt most connected in the session and your reactions to the therapist’s style of engagement.

This is an opportunity to demonstrate your willingness to examine how your culture informs your reactions. With that in mind, please refrain from answers such as “I chose the dimension of gender and do not feel it influenced my reactions at all.” This is effectively a nonanswer and does not demonstrate critical thinking or depth of self-exploration.

 

6.Include any insights gained from the unit articles that address various aspects of culture when using the multigenerational model.

Analyze the missed steps or protocol deviations related to an adverse event or near miss.

Assessment Instructions

Preparation

Prepare a comprehensive analysis on an adverse event or near-miss from your professional nursing experience that you or a peer experienced. Integrate research and data on the event and use as a basis to propose a Quality Improvement (QI) initiative in your current organization.

Note: Remember, you can submit all, or a portion of, your draft to Smarthinking for feedback, before you submit the final version of your analysis for this assessment. However, be mindful of the turnaround time for receiving feedback, if you plan on using this free service.

The numbered points below correspond to grading criteria in the scoring guide. The bullets below each grading criterion further delineate tasks to fulfill the assessment requirements. Be sure that your Adverse Event or Near-miss Analysis addresses all of the content below. You may also want to read the scoring guide to better understand the performance levels that relate to each grading criterion.

  1. Analyze the missed steps or protocol deviations related to an adverse event or near miss.
    • Describe how the event resulted from a patient’s medical management rather than from the underlying condition.
    • Identify and evaluate the missed steps or protocol deviations that led to the event.
    • Discuss the extent to which the incident was preventable.
    • Research the impact of the same type of adverse event or near miss in other facilities.
  2. Analyze the implications of the adverse event or near miss for all stakeholders.
    • Evaluate both short-term and long-term effects on the stakeholders (patient, family, interprofessional team, facility, community). Analyze how it was managed and who was involved.
    • Analyze the responsibilities and actions of the interprofessional team. Explain what measures should have been taken and identify the responsible parties or roles.
    • Describe any change to process or protocol implemented after the incident.
  3. Evaluate quality improvement technologies related to the event that are required to reduce risk and increase patient safety.
    • Analyze the quality improvement technologies that were put in place to increase patient safety and prevent a repeat of similar events.
    • Determine whether the technologies are being utilized appropriately.
    • Explore how other institutions integrated solutions to prevent these types of events.
  4. Incorporate relevant metrics of the adverse event or near miss incident to support need for improvement.
    • Identify the salient data that is associated with the adverse event or near miss that is generated from the facility’s dashboard. (By dashboard, we mean the data that is generated from the information technology platform that provides integrated operational, financial, clinical, and patient safety data for health care management.)
    • Analyze what the relevant metrics show.
    • Explain research or data related to the adverse event or near miss that is available outside of your institution. Compare internal data to external data.
  5. Outline a quality improvement initiative to prevent a future adverse event or near miss.
    • Explain how the process or protocol is now managed and monitored in your facility.
    • Evaluate how other institutions addressed similar incidents or events.
    • Analyze QI initiatives developed to prevent similar incidents, and explain why they are successful. Provide evidence of their success.
    • Propose solutions for your selected institution that can be implemented to prevent future adverse events or near-miss incidents.
  6. Communicate analysis and proposed initiative in a professional and effective manner, writing content clearly and logically with correct use of grammar, punctuation, and spelling.
  7. Integrate relevant sources to support arguments, correctly formatting citations and references using current APA style.

Submission Requirements

  • Length of submission: A minimum of five but no more than seven double-spaced, typed pages.
  • Number of references: Cite a minimum of three sources (no older than seven years, unless seminal work) of scholarly or professional evidence that support your evaluation, recommendations, and plans.
  • APA formatting: Resources and citations are formatted according to current APA style and formatting.
