Ethical dilemmas are often solved by various stakeholders coming together, analyzing the situation, and making recommendations. In the health care setting, this is the responsibility of an ethics committee. Ethics committees may be comprised of individuals from various roles within the organization, ranging from leadership positions to mid-level patient care professionals. Instructions: Scenario: You are a member of your hospital’s ethics committee. A physician, Dr. Pierce, presents the following case to the committee, seeking a recommendation: Jane Smith is currently hospitalized, for the seventh time in 11 months, and is suffering from the following conditions: hypertension, atrial fibrillation, and alcoholic fatty liver (exacerbated by continued heavy alcohol consumption). Jane is severely obese and unable to walk unassisted. Jane’s medical condition is stable enough to be discharged, however, Dr. Pierce cannot in good conscience discharge her home, as she is unable to walk, and has no assistance at home. Jane is resistant to transfer to a skilled nursing facility, which is Dr. Pierce’s professional recommendation. Jane is also receiving Medicare benefits. Briefly summarize the discussion points you would make during the committee meeting, including any questions for Dr. Pierce. One of your fellow committee members proposes that Adult Protective Services be called. What is the ethical implication of following this course of action, without informing Jane first? If Jane continues to refuse the skilled nursing transfer, and Adult Protective Services is not involved, could Dr. Pierce and/or the hospital be held liable if Jane passes away at her home due to her lack of mobility? Be sure to include in-text citations to support this response. In a concise paragraph, provide the committee’s official recommendation, including rationale, for Jane’s case. [Assume answers to your questions for Dr. Pierce]. This recommendation will be legal and ethical protection for Dr. Pierce, and the hospital. Include a minimum of three references, in APA format, for this assignment.
hile servant leadership is often associated with Christianity and the Bible, one could argue it is compatible with most religions and philosophies and that it transcends cultures. This assignment presents you with an opportunity to explore other cultures, philosophies, and religions and asks you to think critically about how servant leadership practices are apparent in other religious and cultural values.
Select one cultural context and one religious viewpoint (other than Christianity, its denominations, or something already discussed in the textbook) and examine how the principles of servant leadership are evident in that culture and religion. In a 1,250-1,500-word essay, identify similarities and differences between servant leadership’s philosophies and the values evident in the selected cultural context and religious viewpoint. Be sure to provide specific examples of practices and/or values in your discussion.
You are required to locate two articles that examine servant leadership from a different cultural perspective and two articles that examine servant leadership from a different religious perspective. Be sure to select academic articles from reputable sources that are 10-20 pages in length. Include information from the articles in your discussion.

Everything that social workers do is an intervention; therefore, social workers develop treatment plans so that they can outline the purpose of treatment, assist in giving the client direction in the treatment process, allow the social worker to collaborate with the client, and help social workers and clients mark progress toward goals. Depending on where you work as a social worker, your funding source may be dependent upon your treatment plan.
In this Assignment, you develop a treatment plan for a client. In real practice, you should never create a treatment plan without conducting a more thorough assessment and then collaborating with the client to mutually agree on goals and steps to implement the plan. For the purpose of this Assignment, however, you explain how you might go about this process.
To prepare: Watch the video case study found in the Learning Resources. Then, go to the Walden Library and review literature related to interventions for this type of client or problem. Use this information to help develop an individual or family treatment plan for the identified client (Amy, Mrs. Bargas, or Bargas family) with whom you have chosen to work from the case study.
By Day 7
Submit a 3- to 4-page paper in which you:
- Identity the client.
- Describe the problems that need to be addressed.
- Explain how you would work with the client to identify and prioritize problems.
- Identify the related needs based on the identified problems.
- Describe how you would utilize client strengths when selecting a strategy for intervention.
- Identify at least two treatment plan goals.
- Create at least one measurable objective to meet each goal.
- Explain the specific action steps to achieve objectives.
- Discuss evidence from the research literature that supports your intervention choices.
- Describe what information is important to document in a treatment plan and explain why.
Nursing case study
Respond to this post with a positive response :
Ask questions to help clarify the scenario and application of data, or offering additional/alternative ideas for the application of nursing informatics principles.
Nurses rely on gathered information, statistics, and trends to help them in their day to day operations. Nurse managers rely on what is trending when it comes to Performance Improvement. The trending information helps the nurse manager pinpoint where the trouble lies and able to go to the source of the problem and educate the staff and fix the problem. For example, during chart audits, it has come to the attention of the auditor that the smoking cessation education check box has been missed in about 50% of the charts that were checked. This data that was collected was entered into a computer program to break down and pinpoint what area of the hospital it was coming from or from whom. This information was given to the nurse manager to share with the staff from which this trend had occurred. Education was able to be given to correct this problem. Information and information processing are central to the healthcare worker. A healthcare professional is also known as a knowledge worker because he or she deals with and processes information on a daily basis to make it meaningful and inform his or her practice (McGonigle & Mastrian, 2018, p. 21). Nurses have to have a knowledge base in order to do the basics of nursing. Most of the knowledge that a nurse will further acquire is on the job. Such as the scenario given above, nurses have to be trained in the policy and procedures of their facility. Gathering information to be able to educate nurses on what is missing in there charting or other paperwork that is required of them is helpful to create proficient nurses.
Healthcare informatics is defined as “the integration of healthcare sciences, computer sciences, information science, and cognitive science to assist management of healthcare information (Sweeney, 2017). By gathering the data, we were able to break it down and create a bar graph of each unit and how many unchecked boxes for the smoking education that did not get done correctly. We could see if any one nurse was trending and gave direction on how to proceed with the educating of the staff. This information came from our PI department to the nurse managers then down to the staff for correcting. According to N. L. Nagle et al., knowledge innovation and generation provides guidance and support to others (nurses, patients) in the application and use of emerging knowledge… (Nagle, Junger, & Bloomberg, 2017, p. 219).

Topics to review during our first week of the course:
How Healthcare reform is impacting primary care https://www.ajmc.com/contributor/sophia–bernazzani/2016/03/how–healthcare–reform–is–impactingprimarycare
• Healthcare reform 101: What the health is going on in 2018? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwTWhwWLzHQ
• Healthcare Transformation and Changing Roles for Nursing https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5266427/pdf/ornur3612.pdf
Frequently when the shortage of primary care providers is mentioned with regard to healthcare reform, insurance companies and other institutions forget to factor in the impact nurse practitioners can have on increasing access. How do you think we can improve this understanding of the nurse practitioner role?
