The board of director consists of preeminent social scientists, therefore your report should be delivered in APA format, including an abstract and references. The page count pertains to the body of the paper only.
Some administrative notes:
There is tendency to default to a hospital setting when considering issues in healthcare. You can examine other sectors such as long term care, palliative care, retail clinics, or community health centers.It is expected the depth of the research goes beyond your studies in the core courses (MSM students) or HCAD 600 (MSHCA students). Please review the policy for re-use of prior course work – even if it is your own.In order to provide a comprehensive assessment, the selected journal article should be supported (or refuted) by other scholarly sources.As you know from your Library Skills course, sources such as Time, Forbes, the Washington Post and other newspapers, while often useful information resources, would not be appropriate primary sources for this paper. As a general guideline, if you can find the resource at a magazine stand, it probably is not a professional journal. The articles you choose should be recent (last 5 years) and should be primary rather than secondary. (Please see the APA manual if you do not recall the difference.)Place your paper in the Assignment folder.
Address that scenario but segment your proposition into each of the six segments. Required format.
Knowledge: What does your boss/board need to Know?
Comprehension: What does the board/boss need too understand about the issues?
Application: What examples/application would you use as part of your presentation to help validate your position/recommendation?
Analysis: What is your analysis of the situation the boss/board needs to hear?
Synthesis: What new idea do you bring to the table that makes your presentation more viable and more valuable to the board? E.g. what are the long term implications and to show you’ve thought through the issues?
Evaluation: What is your evaluation of the recommendations you are making, the likely downsides and challenges and are there any likely unintended consequences. What does the board need to know to make an “informed decision” about the issues?
Let me know if this clarification helps. This format is required for your “education” and comprehension and understanding the board will acquire?
You can include graphics or a ppt brief presentation for the board. For example a relationship diagram may be a useful tool. Not required. Your decision as to any/if graphics are used. If you need further clarification please contact me.
Access, review, and integrate the findings of the journal article into a 10-12 page analysis of your topic. Your exploration should include background of the issue, relevant laws and regulations, and strategic and operational impacts on health services organizations.
Use of the 6 dimensions of Critical Thinking/Blooms is required format. See Grading rubric. 2 source for each of the six dimensions.
Note: Each section requires at least two scholarly sources APA style. While the assignment is to “a journal article” this is to start your research. The 10-12 page paper will require more than one research source to get you started. Do not base your entire paper on 1 journal rather at least 12 sources (see grading rubric) as you dig deeper into your chosen topic.
