Discussion: Personal Image HLT 307
Define personal image and discuss why it is important to maintain professionalism on the job and after hours. Give at least two examples of how health care providers demonstrate professionalism in the workplace.
Consider the following example:
Someone you thought was a friend posted embarrassing photos of you from a party last weekend on a popular social networking site. This was carried out without your knowledge or consent. The next day, you get a call from your boss and the HR department asking you to meet with them to discuss your behavior.
How would you react? How could you possibly have avoided this situation?
DQ 2 for HLT 307V Grand Canyon Week 4
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.
