Assignment: Role of Management HCA 827
A positive culture that includes shared leadership fosters buy-in and contributes to the organization’s long-term viability. Furthermore, research shows that a happy staff leads to better patient outcomes. Is it the primary responsibility of management in a health care organization to promote a positive culture? What is your reasoning? How can members of a health-care organization work together to foster an organizational culture that promotes the long-term viability of high-quality, safe care? Explain.
Quality safe care is more expensive at first, but many people believe that it ultimately saves money because it allows more money to be spent on care rather than on lawsuits, relapses, infections, and other unintended consequences. To what extent is the provision of quality, safe care a factor of the workplace? Explain. Is ethics education important in creating a work environment dedicated to quality safe care? What is your reasoning?
The courses in your doctoral program’s health care emphasis have covered topics like organizational structures, governance, health
care regulation, professional development, leadership, community, and sustainability. Consider the key themes of the emphasis courses for a few moments. Which of these resonates the most with you? Why? How will this affect your dissertation research now that you’ve decided on a topic? You should proofread your paper. However, do not rely solely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part, and your grade will suffer as a result. Papers with a high number of misspelled words and grammatical errors will be penalized. Before submitting your paper, go over it in silence and then aloud, and make any necessary changes. It is often beneficial to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Uncorrected mistakes are preferable to handwritten corrections.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point typeface (10 to 12 characters per inch). Smaller or compressed type, as well as papers with narrow margins or single spacing, are difficult to read. It is preferable to allow your essay to exceed the recommended number of pages rather than attempting to compress it into fewer pages.
Large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are also unacceptable, waste trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced, and have a one-inch margin on all four sides of each page. When submitting hard copies, use white paper and print with dark ink. It will be difficult to follow your argument if it is difficult to read your essay.
