Assignment Analysis of a Pertinent Healthcare Issue

This paper is a continuation of the last one you did about health issues/ stressors.. It is directed to the leadership team of my organization.

The Quadruple Aim provides broad categories of goals to pursue to maintain and improve healthcare. Within each goal are many issues that, if addressed successfully, may have a positive impact on outcomes. For example, healthcare leaders are being tasked to shift from an emphasis on disease management often provided in an acute care setting to health promotion and disease prevention delivered in primary care settings. Efforts in this area can have significant positive impacts by reducing the need for primary healthcare and by reducing the stress on the healthcare system.

Changes in the industry only serve to stress what has always been true; namely, that the healthcare field has always faced significant challenges, and that goals to improve healthcare will always involve multiple stakeholders. This should not seem surprising given the circumstances. Indeed, when a growing population needs care, there are factors involved such as the demands of providing that care and the rising costs associated with healthcare. Generally, it is not surprising that the field of healthcare is an industry facing multifaceted issues that evolve over time.

In this module’s Discussion, you reviewed some healthcare issues/stressors and selected one for further review. For this Assignment, you will consider in more detail the healthcare issue/stressor you selected. You will also review research that addresses the issue/stressor and write a white paper to your organization’s leadership that addresses the issue/stressor you selected.

Title of Paper

Remember to not write in first person. One of the skills of a leader is the ability to communicate[EWT1] effectively and efficiently. Introductory paragraph and purpose statement. This should provide your readers with their initial impressions of your argument, your writing style, and the overall quality of your work. A vague, disorganized, error-filled, off-the-wall, or boring introduction will probably create a negative impression. On the other hand, a concise, engaging, and well-written introduction will start your readers off thinking highly of you, your analytical skills, your writing, and your paper. Your introduction is an important road map for the rest of your paper. Your introduction conveys a lot of information to your readers. You can let them know what your topic is, why it is important, and how you plan to proceed with your discussion.

****The introductory paragraph is about the paper overall. For instance, if your paper is about nurse staffing, then the introductory paragraph would provide the national statistics about nurse staffing**** The purpose statement is written after completion of the introductory paragraph. A purpose statement is a declarative sentence which summarizes the specific topic and goals of a document. It is typically included in the introduction to give the reader an accurate, concrete understanding what the document will cover and what he/she can gain from reading it. To be effective[EWT2] , a statement of purpose should be specific and precise – not general, broad or obscure, concise – one or two sentences, clear – not vague, ambiguous or confusing, and goal-oriented – stated in terms of desired outcomes. ****The purpose statement is graded separately and needs to be complete and concise with only these four requirements****

National Healthcare Issue/Stressor[EWT3]

Describe the national healthcare issue/stressor you selected and its impact on your organization. Use organizational data to quantify the impact (if necessary, seek assistance from leadership or appropriate stakeholders in your organization). Ensure all information is validated with current and credible citations/references. THE MOST MISSED REQUIREMENT FOR THIS PARAGRAPH IS IDENTIFYING AND VERIFYING QUANTITATIVE DATA FROM THE ORGANIZATION WHERE YOU WORK ABOUT THE ISSUE THAT IS IMPACTING THE ORGANIZATION. FOR EXAMPLE: IF DISCUSSING STAFFING – YOU NEED TO PROVIDE QUANTITATIVE DATA, FROM THE ORGANIZATION, ABOUT ITEMS SUCH AS STAFFING RATIOS, NUMBER OF NURSES ENTERING AND LEAVING THE ORGANIZATION, ETC.

Informational Summary[EWT4]

Provide a brief summary of the two articles you reviewed from outside resources on the national healthcare issue/stressor. Explain how the healthcare issue/stressor is being addressed in other organizations. Ensure all information is validated with current and credible citations/references. TO WRITE A SHORT-LIT REVIEW IT SHOULD BE WRITTEN IN SOME SIMILAR FORM AS THIS EXAMPLE:

AUTHORS (YEAR), IDENTIFIED IN NAME OF ARTICLE, THE NEED FOR… THEN SHORTLY DISCUSS THE ARTICLE. IN THE SECOND REVIEW YOU CAN WRITE SOMETHING SIMILAR TO THE FIRST REVIEW.

THE MOST MISSED REQUIREMENT FOR THIS PAPER IS EXPLAINING HOW THE ISSUE IS BEING ADDRESSED IN OTHER ORGANIZATIONS. THE SECOND MOST MISSED ITEM IN THE LIT REVIEW IS IDENTIFYING TWO ARTICLES OR STUDIES AND THEN INCORPORATING AT LEAST TWO TO THREE MORE RESOURCES THAT SUPPORT THE SUMMARIES.

Strategies[EWT5]

Summarize the strategies used to address the organizational impact of national healthcare issues/stressors presented in the scholarly resources you selected. Explain how they may impact your organization both positively and negatively. Be specific and provide examples. Ensure all information is validated with current and credible citations/references. THE MOST MISSED ITEM IN THIS SECTION IS NOT USING THE LIT REVIEW AND THE STRATEGIES IDENTIFIED IN THE LIT REVIEW (SECTION ABOVE).

Conclusion

Your conclusion/summary is your chance to have the last word on the subject. The summary allows you to have the final say on the issues you have raised in your paper, to synthesize your thoughts, to demonstrate the importance of your ideas, and to propel your reader to a new view of the subject. It is also your opportunity to make a good final impression and to end on a positive note. Your summary can go beyond the confines of the assignment. This section pushes beyond the boundaries of the prompt and allows you to consider broader issues, make new connections, and elaborate on the significance of your findings. You should make your readers glad they read your paper, and gives your reader something to take away that will help them see things differently or appreciate your topic in personally relevant ways. It can suggest broader implications that will not only interest your reader, but also enrich your reader’s life in some way. It is your gift to the reader.
