Time Management

This assignment is about you. It is an assessment of your abilities and traits.

This assignment will help you figure out what style of leadership you have been following and whether this style works for you.

Through this assignment, you will find the various approaches of leadership that complement each other. There is no one theory that describes the only way to be an effective leader. Each theory focuses on different issues, but they all help you to better understand how to become a successful leader.

Based on your research and understanding, create a paper in a 3- to 4-page Microsoft Word document that:

Incorporates your time management self-assessment information and the concepts learned this week (leadership theories, leadership versus management, professional nursing organizations, and time management.

Includes identification of one leadership theory, which you feel best describes your leadership style.

Includes a comparison between leadership and management

Includes a suggestion on how to apply this weeks concepts to the work environment

APA format need references too.

· Leadership Theories

  • Autocratic (Authoritarian): The      autocratic leader dictates to the group the task to be accomplished, and      the method to be followed. This style is used when time is short and the      leader is the most knowledgeable person on the team with regards to the      task at hand.
  • Participative (Democratic):      Participative leaders include the group in the decision−making process.      This style is most appropriate when everyone in the group has knowledge      about the subject, like when working with a group of experts. The leader,      however, retains the ability to make the final decision.

Delegative (Free Reign): Also known as laissez faire, meaning—to not get involved in the affairs of others, a delegative leader allows the individuals in the group to make independent decisions, although the leader will be held responsible for the decisions made. It is best to not supervise educated people,

What is the legal nature of Marwans employment? Explain your answers and the terms you use.

Marwan has worked at Studio Five Theme Park as a character actor portraying a swash-buckling pirate. He does not have an employment contract.  He loves his job because of his seniority with the company and all the attention he receives from the guests in the park. Unknown to anyone, his prosthetic leg has no noticeable impact on Marwan’s success in this position.

Marwan has become an accomplished flirt with all this attention, and now goes to the extent of placing his hands on the female guests’ behinds when posing for pictures. The women he has encountered so far have not complained, didn’t seem to mind, or they were taken by such surprise they were not sure how to respond.

One day, Marwan grabbed the breast of one of his fellow female actors who had been recently hired. When she threatened to report him, Marwan told her that he could get her fired if she did not go on a date with him. The fellow employee reported the incident anyway and Marwan was terminated immediately. Marwan contends that he was terminated as a result of physical disability.

Directions:

Research employment law related to hiring/firing and discrimination, using your textbook, the Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet. Based on the facts of the case and research, write an analytical paper. In the paper, respond to the following questions:

  • What civil rights laws may prohibit Marwan’s conduct with his fellow co-worker? Do those laws apply to his conduct toward the park guest?  Explain both answers.
  • Did Marwan commit sexual harassment? If so, what type? Explain your answers and the terms you use.
  • What is the legal nature of Marwan’s employment?  Explain your answers and the terms you use.
  • What actions and steps should Studio Five take against Marwan? Explain what actions you considered and why you either recommend them or reject them.
  • Discuss Marwan’s allegation that he is being discriminated against based on his disability and what response Studio Five may have to that allegation. What would each of them have to prove in court?
  • If the female employee sues Studio Five Theme Park, what defenses can Studio Five use?   Are they liable for Marwan’s conduct even if they were unaware of and did not approve of Marwan’s actions? Explain your answers and the terms you use.
  • If Marwan was a member of a union that had a collective bargaining agreement with Studio Five, would that change any of your previous answers? If so, why?
  • What types of company policies, procedures, and actions should businesses employ to avoid harassment of their employees?

Write a ten-page paper in Word format. Apply APA standards for writing style to your work.

leadership theories

Nursing Leadership

Of the leadership theories discussed this week, which one did this nurse leader subscribe to? Why?

Of the leadership theories discussed this week the Participative (Democratic) style most describes the nurse leader at my workplace. She includes the staff when making decisions and welcomes open group discussions before making final decisions.” A participative management style is pervasive, and staff feedback is not just welcomed but expected by leaders in making decisions about the work of patient care” (Porter-OGrady, T. 2016 P.17)

How has your experience been with the nurse leader? Provide a description of your interactions with him or her?

My nurse leader was recently promoted from charge nurse to manager; shes the perfect person for the job. Were all enthused that she has this position, she was a floor nurse just months prior and still remembers the challenges we face caring for six patients. Recently I had a confused, anxious, combative, unsteady, high fall risk patient, who lived at home alone. Due to his combative, uncooperative nature the hospital Doctor issued a discharge home to self -care order.  I knew that he was in no condition to go home alone, he would return to the hospital within hours in worst shape. Due to my role and responsibility as my patients advocate, I went in to speak to my nurse leader in private and addressed all my concerns. She quickly got the case management supervisor involved in the case and requested a physical therapy evaluation. As a team we were able to prevent an unsafe discharge from hospital.

Translating Evidence Into Practice

In Part 3 of the Course Project, you consider how the evidence you gathered during Part 2 can be translated into nursing practice.

Now that you have located available research on your PICOT question, you will examine what the research indicates about nursing practices. Connecting research evidence and findings to actual decisions and tasks that nurses complete in their daily practice is essentially what evidence-based practice is all about. This final component of the Course Project asks you to translate the evidence and data from your literature review into authentic practices that can be adopted to improve health care outcomes. In addition, you will also consider possible methods and strategies for disseminating evidence-based practices to your colleagues and to the broader health care field.

To prepare:

· Consider Parts 1 and 2 of your Course Project. How does the research address your PICOT question?

· With your PICOT question in mind, identify at least one nursing practice that is supported by the evidence in two or more of the articles from your literature review. Consider what the evidence indicates about how this practice contributes to better outcomes.

· Explore possible consequences of failing to adopt the evidence-based practice that you identified.

· Consider how you would disseminate information about this evidence-based practice throughout your organization or practice setting. How would you communicate the importance of the practice?

To complete:

In a 3- to 4-page paper:

· Restate your PICOT question and its significance to nursing practice.

· Summarize the findings from the articles you selected for your literature review. Describe at least one nursing practice that is supported by the evidence in the articles. Justify your response with specific references to at least 2 of the articles.

· Explain how the evidence-based practice that you identified contributes to better outcomes. In addition, identify potential negative outcomes that could result from failing to use the evidence-based practice.

· Outline the strategy for disseminating the evidence-based practice that you identified throughout your practice setting. Explain how you would communicate the importance of the practice to your colleagues. Describe how you would move from disseminating the information to implementing the evidence-based practice within your organization. How would you address concerns and opposition to the change in practice?

What can you predict about the average occupancy of vehicles in the hot lane compared to vehicles in the other lane during rush hour?

Each answer should consist of one or two paragraphs that contain analysis (not opinion).

 

1. Consider a highway with a hot lane and a lane that has no toll.  Assuming that the toll must be paid by all cars that use the hot lane, no matter how many people are riding in them.  What can you predict about the average occupancy of vehicles in the hot lane compared to vehicles in the other lane during rush hour?

2. Explain how making something illegal (like sex, booze or drugs) impacts the quality, quantity and price of the illegal substance.  In addition, are there any unintended consequences of making drugs illegal that can cause harm to people?

3.  Anti-fracking “Baptists” include those concerned with any further environmental degradation from extracting non-renewable resources from the earth.  Identify the “bootleggers” who would support the Baptists, albeit not so publicly, but still forcefully.  Why would these bootleggers benefit from curtailed fracking?

4.  Explain how allowing payment to kidney donors could reduce the cost to transplant recipients and their insurance companies.  Are there any additional social benefits that could occur?  Explain.

5 If you lived in California this last summer, you would hear little about things other than water.  A drought in California then led to rationing water in many uses in most of the State.  What do you think led to the water crisis and how can it be fixed? (Be analytical in your answer.  There was a lot of rain this year, but that is not the analytical fix for the problem at hand.)

digital revolution

Before the digital revolution, health information technology supplied very limited support for evidence-based practice. If nurses wanted to be informed about cutting-edge research, their best bet was to either subscribe to leading journals or make periodic trips to the library. With the establishment of research databases, however, nurses became empowered to learn about and facilitate interdisciplinary and translational research. Databases are just one example of how health information technology supports evidence-based practice.

To prepare:

· Read the following scenario from the text (McGonigle & Mastrian, 2018, p. 506):

Twelve-hour shifts are problematic for patient and nurse safety, and yet hospitals continue to keep the 12-hour shift schedule. In 2004, the Institute of Medicine (Board on Health Care Services & Institute of Medicine, 2004) published a report that referred to studies as early as 1988 that discussed the negative effects of rotating shifts on intervention accuracy. Workers with 12-hour shifts realized more fatigue than workers on 8-hour shifts. In another study done in Turkey by Ilhan, Durukan, Aras, Turkcuoglu, and Aygun (2006), factors relating to increased risk for injury were age of 24 or less, less than 4 years of nursing experience, working in the surgical intensive care units, and working for more than 8 hours.

· Consider how the resources identified in the scenario above could influence an organizations practice.

· Select an issue in your practice that is of concern to you. Using health information technology, locate at least three evidence-based practice resources that address your concern and that could possibly inform further action.

Post a description of your practice concern. Outline how you used health information technology to locate evidence-based practices that address this concern. Cite and include insights from the resources. Analyze how health information technology supports evidence-based practice.
