have covered in the class

2) Write up a short summary (2-3 sentences) of what you plan to do with your

project. Include:

a) what topic you want to cover (can be any topic already covered or to be

covered- see syllabus if unsure)

b) how you plan to present it (eg. a story, a picture, a model, a video, …)

3) Get my approval to do the project – after you give me the summary

The project can be:

Making models* of a topic (eg. cells, organelles) – NO Styrofoam Cells Please!

Turning a concept into some form of art (painting, drawing, photography)

(eg. making photosynthesis a graphic story)

Write up a poem or short story or comic book

Create a computer program that lets someone interactively explore a

concept (eg. how cellular respiration works)

Act out a process that occurs

Make video to explain a topic

Some other creative way to explain a concept you found interesting!

You will be graded on:

Completing the project

Quality, Safety And The Patient Experience In Healthcare Discussion

Quality, Safety, and the Patient Experience in HC

Imagine you are the “leader” of a health care organization. Utilizing what you have learned thus far in this course, what are the unique challenges, tools and skills necessary for creating an organizational quality management system that supports quality, safety and the patient experience? This is your opportunity to “pull it all together” and make the connections from weekly learnings. This essay is about your “framework” and “culture” for driving improvement in quality, safety and patient satisfaction across the organization. Topics include as part of your essay:

Leadership and Culture: How do you create a line of sight for employees and shared values? How do you create a sustainable quality management system? How do you engage employees and create accountability?

Structure/Framework: How do you identify priority focus areas and create a quality framework for getting the work done and sustaining results? What quality tools/approaches might you employ in creating your framework and how would you use them?

Performance Measurement: How are quality outcomes reviewed, measured and shared for maximum results?

Communication: What is important to consider as you create teams, communicate and engage stakeholders? What is important to consider as you lead and facilitate change in the organization?

Technology: How could technology enhance the patient safety programs?

Please consider the “how” this is done and not just the “what” needs to be done.

As we have discussed during this course leaders within health systems will need to employ relevant ‘tools & techniques’ as well as the ‘underlying thinking & assumptions’ to move towards a quality improvement culture. Think about the framework required to support a quality improvement culture. (If applicable, you may wish to interview leaders in your organizational setting for this assignment.)

Please use correct APA format, including a cover page, in-text citations, and a References page.

The Literature Review, health and medicine homework help

The Literature Review

This week, we will be expanding on the work we started in week two of this course. Rather than just analyzing resources, this week we will be blending our resources into a larger frame, drawing connections between each of the resources and to our project thesis. For a refresher on the final project criteria, see our preview.

A literature review has two specific goals:

  • To demonstrate that you, the researcher, have done your due diligence in exploring the work other researchers have done in the area; and
  • To ground the theory in the current research available.

You should think of your literature review as a way to tell a story about your research using sources as guideposts along the way. Think about your role in this as a moderator in a discussion between your sources, and your job is to keep them focused on your thesis (this is usually the first section of a research article, so you should use the literature reviews of your sources as a model for what we are doing here).

You will need a minimum of five (5) sources in your literature review (you will need a total of ten in your Final Project). Consider the following to help you gather these sources:

  • Do a library search using Grantham’s EBSCOhost library database or from Google Scholar
  • Use key words to search (try different variations)
  • Only use scholarly books or peer-reviewed journal articles
  • Choose sources from within the past 5 years (you can set your EBSCO search to only show articles within this range)
  • Read titles to see what looks relevant (don’t waste your time reading things that don’t look like they will work for your project)
  • Read the abstracts and only choose the most pertinent articles (once again, don’t waste your time—if the abstract doesn’t seem promising, move on to the nerxt article).

Please note: information from the Internet may not be used for this project unless the source is from an e-journal (a peer-reviewed journal that is published on the web). The organization’s website is an exception to this rule, but it can only count as one of your ten sources.

Create a literature review, incorporating each of your references (minimum of five), tying them to each other and to the thesis of your project in a single narrative. You should cite each source in the body of your literature review and in a references page at the end of your paper.

Your literature review should be arranged in the following way:

  • Introduction: A concise definition of the topic and organization with which you are working. A clearly stated thesis of your project. A brief description about how this project might be interesting and/or important to your readers/adudience.
  • Main Body: A discussion of each of your sources, including what they are claiming, how they relate to other sources you are using, and how they support your thesis (make sure you identify and cite each source as you use them). Each work should be summarized and evaluated for its premise, scope, and conclusion. In addition, address any inconsistencies, omissions, or errors, as well as accuracy, depth, and relevance you find compelling or think might be useful to your readers/audience. Use logical connections and transitions to connect sources.
  • Conclusion: The conclusion summarizes the key findings of the review in general terms. You may want to revisit commonalities and differences between your sources, whether favorable or not. Make sure you tie your work throughout this review back to your thesis.

References: As well as accurate in-text citations, your literature review must contain complete and correct APA citations for every source in a references page at the end of your review.

critical Thinking Questions

  1. Explain what Mucor is and how a patient is likely to become infected with Mucor. Describe the pathophysiologic progression of the infection into pneumonia and at least two medical/nursing interventions that would be helpful in treating the patient.
  2. Examine the laboratory blood test results and arterial blood gases provided in “Discussion Question Resource: Laboratory Blood Test Results.” What laboratory values are considered abnormal? Explain each abnormality and discuss the probable causes from a pathophysiologic perspective.
  3. What medications and medical treatments are likely to be prescribed by the attending physician on this case? List at least three medications and three treatments. Provide rationale for each of the medications and treatments you suggest.

Tierra del Fuego

South America – West Coast

  1. How might these locations later be used to support Darwin’s idea of slow, gradual change? Darwin started the voyage of the Beagle as a creationist, very much enamored with William Paley’s arguments in Natural Theology. Why did he ultimately reject the argument from design? What kinds of evidence did he observe on his voyage to support his idea that species changed through time rather than being specially created?
  2. What did these bones Darwin found at Punta Alta imply? Why were there no animals like this alive and if the animals went extinct, how long ago did this happen? Darwin speculated that the vegetation must have been very lush to support creatures of this size. However, the vegetation in this region now was very sparse. What did Darwin conclude?
  3. Speculate what caused the creature’s extinction. Must it have been environment change? How long ago did this creature die? If these bones were thousands of years old, did they support Lyell’s theory? How could Darwin tell or speculate, given his knowledge at the time
