NHS8002 Collaboration, Communication, and Case Analysis for Doctoral Learners

Unit 1 Discussion        

Collaboration Across Disciplines

Introduction to Discussion Participation

Discussions in your Capella courses serve several purposes: they help you connect with your peers and instructors; they give you an opportunity to apply information from your unit readings; and they give you practice blending your own experiences with scholarly research and analysis. Drawing on what you know is fantastic but you must validate your knowledge and experience with support from research and analysis.

When discussions ask you to describe your own experiences and opinions, it is absolutely appropriate and expected that you write your post in first person—using pronouns such as I, my, me, or our, is fine in those situations. However, most of the time, you are expected to write discussions and assignments in the third-person voice of an objective observer, using pronouns such as it, they, he, or she.

In your Capella courses, you are expected to reference scholarly sources to support your opinions, positions, or statements. In questions involving case studies, these references should be in addition to the case study itself. Whenever you reference a source to support your ideas or opinions, you must cite that source following the current APA citation style. This refers to the rules and standards for documenting the sources used. (The APA Style and Format Campus page is linked in Resources.) Correctly using references and APA style in your academic work demonstrates your academic integrity and critical-thinking skills. Failure to cite sources is violation of academic honesty.

Before completing your first discussion post, you may also want to review the Discussion Participation Scoring Guide to understand how your instructor will evaluate your discussion participation throughout the course. Refer to the Faculty Expectations message (FEM) for specific guidelines.

Instructions

Review the media piece Riverbend City: Interprofessional Collaboration (linked in Resources) before you respond to this discussion.

All health care fields have one thing in common: they exist to serve community needs. Quite often, it takes the combined efforts of several agencies to effect a needed change or resolve a potentially harmful situation.

In the media piece, you were asked to choose 10 participants for a roundtable discussion to develop an emergency response plan for Riverbend City. From the list of names:

Identify your top five names and explain your reasons for choosing them as participants.

Identify any agencies or organizations not on the list of options that you think should have been represented and explain why you believe they should have been included.

Describe the unique contributions you could make to this discussion from the perspective of your specialization.

In formulating your answers, consider the perspective of the Whole Community approach, as articulated in the media presentation and the readings.

Response GuidelinesDiscussions are a way to share your experiences and learn from each other. Weekly discussions allow you to give and receive feedback and support, as well as to engage in dialogue that will challenge, clarify, and expand your understanding of course concepts.

Read and respond to your peers' discussion posts according to Faculty Expectations for Response Guidelines. As you read the posts, you may want to look specifically for differences or similarities in how you and your peers think about interprofessional collaboration. If there are areas in which you would like more insight, please ask questions.

Keep in mind that the objective of the response posts is to stimulate discussion, promote an exchange of ideas among learners, and most importantly to generate a sense of community among learners in the course room. With this in mind, please choose posts that has had few or no responses; in doing so, your responses will increase the sense of community among your fellow learners.

Unit 8 Discussion

Personal Leadership

Discussion Preparation

Complete the Leadership Self-Assessment assigned in this unit's first study activity.

Instructions

One style of leadership is better suited to different times and situations than another. It is important, therefore, to understand which leadership style best fits the needs of a given situation.

Unit 9 Discussion        

Using Leadership to Empower Others

Discussion Preparation

The Unit 9 introduction suggested that the empowerment that comes with servant leadership is not power for the sake of the leader, but for the benefit of others. Reflect on how the following quotes influence the way you think about leadership and empowerment:

"If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader" (John Quincy Adams, as cited by Josephson, 2012).

"Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others" (Jack Welch, as cited by Lowe, 2008, p. 88).

"A good leader inspires people to have confidence in the leader; a great leader inspires people to have confidence in themselves" (Eleanor Roosevelt, as cited in Famous Leadership Quotes, n.d.).

"You have to look at leadership through the eyes of the followers and you have to live the message. What I have learned is that people become motivated when you guide them to the source of their own power and when you make heroes out of employees who personify what you want to see in the organization" (Anita Roddick, 1991).

"A leader ... is like a shepherd. He stays behind the flock, letting the most nimble go out ahead, whereupon the others follow, not realizing that all along they are being directed from behind" (Nelson Mandela, 2000).

Instructions

In your initial discussion post, address the following questions:

Which quote really spoke to you, and how might it influence the way you view the leadership, power, and authority with which you have been entrusted?

How could it help guide and shape your personal leadership style?

How might you use these approaches to effect change in health care as a leader?

How might these quotes, plus your readings on servant leadership, help you create a culture where diversity, ethics, and inclusion are valued?

Remember that anytime you use a resource to support your statements, you must follow APA guidelines for citations and references.

Response Guidelines

Read as many posts as time allows. Please choose posts that have had few responses thus far and refer to the Faculty Expectations for Response Guidelines. Use this discussion to gain a deeper understanding of the different ways and reasons people become leaders.

Unit 10 Discussion

Looking Ahead: The Doctoral Capstone Project

One hallmark of a School of Nursing and Health Sciences doctoral graduate is the completion of a final capstone project. The aim is to develop a practice change project that requires appraisal, translation, and application of evidence to a practice situation. The project is mutually determined by various stakeholders and confirmed by a review of the current literature and best-practice environment. Learners investigate a clinical, organizational, or process question—a PICO(T) question—related to an area of nursing practice, the health care delivery system, or a public health policy issue.  Each project must demonstrate the use of evidence to improve outcomes or resolve a gap.

It is vital for you to begin thinking of several areas in the first course of the program.

For this discussion, identify your program area and address the following:

What is your understanding of the capstone (practice doctorate) and how it applies to your educational and professional goals?

What area are you interested in studying over a two-year time frame? What questions do you have about a health care delivery practice or issue?

After reviewing the media presentation on creating a research topic and the CORE site, what are your initial ideas for your topic for the doctoral capstone project? What strategies might you use to identify a clinical/health care practice site and preceptor?

What strategies will you use to keep moving forward in the program? What are the secrets to success?

Response Guidelines

For this discussion, you are not required to respond to any other learners. However, you are encouraged to read as many posts as time allows. Should you choose to respond, refer to the Faculty Expectations message for guidelines.

Unit 4 Assignment

Demonstrating Effective Leadership

Assignment Overview

According to General Colin Powell, "Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers who can cut through argument, debate, and doubt to offer a solution everybody can understand" (as cited by Harari, 2002).

For this assignment, you will examine case studies you selected from your Cases in Health Care Management textbook and determine if the health care leaders in these situations were able to offer sound solutions.

Note: It is recommended, but not required, that you begin the Unit 4 discussion, "The Process of Effective Writing," before beginning this assignment so you can review and discuss the academic writing process before applying these concepts.

Assignment Preparation

Imagine that you are the manager of a health care organization confronting numerous issues potentially affecting the provision of safe, high-quality health care practices. You have decided to focus first on the issue that has particular relevance to your area of specialization or professional goals, or that presents a situation you might expect to encounter in your leadership role. As you consider an appropriate course of action to address this issue, you have decided to begin by searching the case study literature to gain insight into the actions of other health care leaders who have faced similar issues and may have provided a sound solution to the problem or issues. A colleague recommended the Buchbinder, Shanks, and Buchbinder text, Cases in Health Care Management as an excellent case study reference.

In the Buchbinder, Shanks, and Buchbinder text, locate two case studies other than Cases 9, 65, or 67 that are most closely aligned with the issues you have decided to address. In addition, be sure that your selected case studies will enable you to:

Evaluate the effectiveness of different leadership approaches in facilitating collaborative professional relationships across disciplines.

Evaluate health care leaders' abilities to communicate effectively.

Analyze the role of communication in both creating and resolving a problem in health care leadership.

Evaluate how effectively leaders address any issues involving ethical practice, diversity, or inclusion.

Evaluate health care leaders' abilities to manage and prioritize leadership responsibilities to resolve issues.

Be aware that the case studies in the text may not supply all of the needed information. In such cases, you should consider various possibilities and infer plausible conclusions.

Note: For your convenience, Appendix B in Cases in Health Care Management lists all cases by topic (Leadership, Quality/Patient Safety, Finance, Healthcare Professionals/Human Resources, Health Disparities/Cultural Competence, Ethics/Law/Conflict of Interest, Crossing the Line/Fraud) and by primary and secondary settings.

Assignment Instructions

Include a title page, abstract, and reference page.

An APA Style Paper Tutorial and the associated APA Style Paper Template are linked in Resources to help you in writing and formatting your paper. Format your work per these documents.

Include on your cover page the titles of the case studies you have chosen. For example, your title could read: "Demonstrating Effective Leadership: Case 82 – When Yes Means No and Case 83 – Emergency Divert Status."

Include the case study in your references and use in-text citations when appropriate.

In the body of the paper, begin by briefly summarizing the facts surrounding the case studies. After you identify the leaders and the issues they are facing, analyze the factors that you believe contributed to each issue.

Note: In graduate-level writing, you should minimize the use of direct quotes. Lengthy quotes do not count toward assignment minimums. It is your interpretation of the material and its application to practice that is assessed.

Remember, the case studies may not supply all of the necessary information. In such cases, you should consider a variety of possibilities and infer plausible conclusions. However, please be sure to identify any speculations that you make as such.

An excellent tool for analyzing factors that contribute to a problem is the Fishbone Diagram, linked in Resources. Use of this optional tool is highly recommended but you will not submit your diagram with this assignment.

Compare and contrast the leadership approaches or styles these leaders use. Analyze how the approaches or styles make these leaders more or less effective in building interprofessional relationships across disciplines within the organization. Based on your analysis, determine how likely it will be that these leaders will be able to build and maintain such relationships with other communities and leaders outside their organization. Support your analysis with citations and appropriate APA references to peer-reviewed journals or scholarly sources.

Analyze how well these leaders communicate, verbally or in writing. Analyze the role of communication and communication strategies in both creating and resolving the issues presented in the case study.

Summarize and analyze how well the leaders managed professional responsibilities and priorities to resolve the issue in the case. What lessons could you take away from this case that could be applied by other leaders?

Summarize and evaluate how effectively the leaders addressed any issues involving ethical practice, diversity or inclusion in the case. What key lessons do these cases provide for leaders? Use examples to clarify and support your ideas.

Your instructor may require you to submit this paper to Smarthinking and attach the report to the assignment in the courseroom. Be aware that the turnaround time for Smarthinking can be 24-48 hours from submission to receiving the feedback report. Plan accordingly.

Submit a draft of your assignment to the SafeAssign source matching tool so you can make revisions before submitting it to your instructor for grading. Note: Submitting the work to SafeAssign does not submit it to the course room for evaluation.

Submit the paper to the courseroom for evaluation by clicking on the assignment title in the unit and uploading the paper as a Word document. Attach any required reports in the same way. The assignment is due no later than 11:59 p.m. CST on Sunday.

If you would like assistance in organizing your assignment, or if you simply have a question about your assignment, please do not hesitate to ask your courseroom instructor or the teaching assistants in the NHS Learner Success Lab for guidance and suggestions. If you want more assistance with writing, you can ask your instructor for a referral to a writing coach.

 

Example assignment: You may use the Demonstrating Effective Leadership Example, linked in Resources, to give you an idea of what a Proficient or higher rating on the scoring guide would look like.

Submission Requirements

Your paper should meet the following requirements:

Written communication: Write coherently to support central ideas, in appropriate format, and with correct grammar, usage, and mechanics.

Length of paper: 5–6 typed, double-spaced pages, not including the title page, abstract, and reference page.

NHS8002 Collaboration, Communication, and Case Analysis for Doctoral Learners

Unit 9 Assignment

Personal Leadership Portrait

The health care environment is complex, requiring leadership that is comprehensive and collaborative in the field. It is essential for leaders to be well versed in a range of areas (practice, research, education) as a means of effective engagement with interprofessional communities. Effective leaders have heightened awareness of self and individual leadership styles, leading to professional growth, career advancement, and the ability to develop leaders for the future across the fields of practice (nursing, health administration, public health).

Your final assignment in your first course will bring together all the aspects of leadership that you have examined and discussed over the last 9 units. In this assignment, you will analyze and evaluate your own leadership qualities to create a portrait of the health care professional and leader you aspire to be.

Since this assignment requires you to develop a self-portrait, you may write this paper in first-person voice. Note: It is very important for your development as a scholar-practitioner that you recognize that writing in the first person is not usually acceptable in academic papers. However, given the nature of this assignment, it has been deemed appropriate to make an exception here. Please remember that the third-person voice is the universal norm in academic writing. You should always exercise careful consideration before departing from this norm. If you have any questions about this, please contact your courseroom instructor, or post a question in the Ask Your Teaching Assistant area of the NHS Learner Success Lab.

Assignment Instructions

You have been offered the opportunity to apply for a leadership position in your organization. As a part of the application process, your potential employer uses the National Center for Healthcare Leadership's (NCHL) competency model of leadership development (NCHL, 2016), which includes a self-assessment on behavior (relational), technical and operational skills, and strategic ability. In preparation for the interview, you will complete a personal leadership portrait using the information from the Leadership Self-Assessment you completed in Unit 8. It is important that you demonstrate your knowledge and experience in each of the areas outlined below.

To complete this assignment, you will need to:

Identify and analyze at least one leadership theory or style that you believe best aligns with your own thoughts of what leadership means. Use that theory or style (or theories or styles) to analyze your strengths and weaknesses.

Evaluate the leadership characteristics you already possess. Then, identify at least two additional leadership characteristics you would like to develop. Explain how these characteristics will allow you to guide, educate, inform, and influence others to manage change in the field of health care.

Evaluate how your leadership attributes will serve to help you build and maintain collaborative relationships across disciplines within your community.

Identify the main principles of ethical leadership in health care, citing your sources, and evaluate how you can best apply them given your leadership style. Where do you have room to grow in this area? How can you prepare yourself to do so?

Analyze how you, as a health care leader, can address diversity and inclusion. Explain why these factors are important and how they contribute to effective leadership in health care. Give an example you have experienced or read about. Cite your sources.
