BSN4020 Unit 7 Assignment 1

Safety, Quality, and Informatics

Resources

Overview

For this assignment, you will identify a major patient safety issue within your own organization and then develop a plan using evidence-based best practices and technology to improve the safety issue. In this component, you will be demonstrating your competency in Program Outcomes 2, 3, 4, and 6:

  • Program Outcome 2: Safety and Quality Practices: Incorporate concepts of patient safety, clinical management, and quality improvement to improve patient outcomes.

Before you begin, examine your organization’s history of safety in a specific area, and how your organization addresses patient safety issues. If possible, consult with a key stakeholder in the organization (such as an administrator) to better understand specific patient safety concerns and how the organization is working to resolve the concerns. This person should also be able to discuss some of the organizational barriers impacting the patient safety issue. Next, look at the basic concepts, principles, and practices that contribute to organizational quality improvement and patient safety. Review the literature for best practices and how technology might be used to improve the issue. Finally, be sure to consider the legal and ethical implications associated with the safety issue; and possible organizational barriers to change.

Requirements

Be sure you address each point as completely as possible.

  • Describe a patient safety issue within your organization.
  • Compare the way your organization addresses patient safety issues with the concepts, principles, and practices that contribute to quality improvement and patient safety.
  • Analyze the legal and ethical consequences of not addressing the issue.
  • Recommend evidence-based interventions to address the patient safety issue.

BSN4020 Unit 9 Assignment 1

Policy, Regulation, and Organizational Behavior

Resources

In this assignment, you will investigate your organization’s compliance rate with one specific core measure of your choice. You must be able to explain the financial implications associated with the measure, as well as its importance in terms of policy, regulation, and finance. This is another good opportunity to consult with a key stakeholder within the organization. Talking to someone who works closely with the organization’s finances can help you develop a deeper understanding of the financial aspects of compliance. You also need to suggest ways your organization can improve compliance and how you would implement changes and overcome obstacles.

This may seem like an enormous undertaking, but you should approach it as if you would present this information to your supervisor or manager. Keeping in mind that people in these positions do not have time to read a 10–12 page report, you would typically give them only an executive summary of your analyses and recommendations. That means that you will need to be very clear and very concise with the information you choose to include in the executive summary. Say as much as possible with as few words as possible. This component will measure your proficiency in Program Outcomes 4, 6, and 9:

  • Program Outcome 4: Policy, Finance, and Regulations: Understand the scope and role of policy, finance, and regulatory environments in relationship to individual and population outcomes.
  • Program Outcome 6: Organizational and Systems Management: Apply knowledge of organizational behavior, nursing theory, and systems (micro and macro) as appropriate for the scope and role of one’s own practice.
  • Program Outcome 9: Professional Role: Incorporate the qualities, skills, behaviors, and knowledge required to function as a patient advocate, practice high quality care, assess and evaluate patient outcomes, and provide leadership in improving care.

Assignment Description

For this assignment, you will write a 2–3-page executive summary that analyzes the financial and regulatory impact of organizational compliance with a specific core measure of your choice, and includes recommendations for improving performance on the measure.

Select a core measure and investigate your organization’s compliance rate with the measure. In your executive summary be sure to address the following:

  • Compare the compliance rates of your organization with other organizations.
  • Identify the financial implications associated with the measure.
  • Explain why the measure is important in terms of policy, regulation, and finance.
  • Describe changes that could be made that would improve compliance with the measure.
  • Identify the people who would be affected by the changes.
  • Outline a plan to implement the changes within the organization.
  • Identify obstacles you would expect to encounter.
  • Explain your strategies for overcoming obstacles.

You must still reference scholarly resources to support your work, but this is an executive summary; it should notbe formatted in APA style (you must include a title page reference page). It may be helpful for you to review the documents used in your organization. How do they look? What kind of language is used in memos? These can help guide your development of this executive summary. And certainly feel free to use bullet points as appropriate.

Requirements

  • The executive summary should be no more than 2–3 pages (not including title and reference page).
  • Include a title page and reference page.
  • At least 3 current scholarly or professional resources.
  • Times New Roman font, 12 pt.

You are required to submit your assignment to the Turnitin source matching tool. After receiving your Turnitin report make sure you submit Parts 1 and 2 in the assignment submission area. Submitting your assignment to Turnitin does not mean you have submitted the assignment to the instructor.

Read the Policy, Regulation, and Organizational Behavior Scoring Guide to see how you will be graded on this assignment.

BSN4020 Unit 10 Assignment 1

Professional Development Portfolio

Resources

Overview

This is the final portion of your capstone project. Your Professional Development Portfolio will be a compilation of specific artifacts that should be suitable to present at a job interview or performance review.

Please note that you will not be evaluated on the four previous assignments; you will only be evaluated on your written summary. But be sure that you submit your entire portfolio.

This component demonstrates your proficiency in program outcomes 5, and 9.

  • Program Outcome 5: Communication: Communicate effectively with all members of the healthcare team, including interdepartmental and interdisciplinary collaboration for quality outcomes.
  • Program Outcome 9: Professional Role: Incorporate the qualities, skills, behaviors, and knowledge required to function as a patient advocate, practice high quality care, assess and evaluate patient outcomes, and provide leadership in improving care.

Compile your artifacts from the four previous assignments into a professional portfolio that you might share with a prospective employer, or a supervisor or manager. Imagine that you are either applying for a new position, advocating for a new role, or preparing for a year-end review.

When applying for a new position, or advocating for a new role, it is helpful to anticipate the sorts of things a decision maker might be looking for in evaluating you for that particular position or role and to rehearse your responses.

For your capstone project, you will submit your Professional Development Portfolio, and include a written summary of your proficiency in the format of interview questions and answers. To accomplish this:

  • Prepare your Professional Development Portfolio. Include all of the artifacts from this course.
  • Prepare a written summary of your proficiency in the format of interview questions and answers as follows:
  1. Briefly describe a position, role, or project you would like to apply for or participate in. Alternately, imagine that you are preparing for a performance evaluation.
  2. List the questions that you imagine you might be posed. Respond to each question, highlighting accomplishments from your portfolio that demonstrate your level of competence.
  3. Continue with a succinct summary of the qualities, skills, behaviors, and knowledge your bring to the tasks of patient advocacy, the practice of high quality care, the ability to assess and evaluate patient outcomes, and the leadership skills needed to provide improved patient care. (This should be 1–2 paragraphs in length.)
  4. Conclude with a statement that reflects your understanding of the role of lifelong learning in your career goals.

Submit your Professional Development Portfolio and your interview questions and answers to your instructor for grading.
