GROUP PROJECT: Mission of Mercy You will be planning a summer mobile health clinic project for an underserved cluster of counties in (you determine the part of the country). The project is being funded by a wealthy physician who is a close colleague of your parents who wants to “give back.” He knows that you are a graduate student in need of a hands on thesis project. He is giving you $50,000.00 for a three month project. Use of the mobile clinic and medical supplies are being donated. Your task is to assemble an inter-professional team who can deliver consistent, compassionate, quality care to these communities. Your team must plan and carry out every aspect of this mission and together you must determine the following: • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • Who will be served and why? How will you budget the $50,000. Is this a voluntary mission or will volunteers receive a stipend? If so, how much? Based upon what? What types of professionals will provide the care? What kind of care should be provided? What are the hours of operation of the clinic? How will the providers be scheduled? What days and hours? What are the living accommodations for staff? Who will clean the clinic? What strategies will you use to build team collaboration How will the team leadership be handled? What is the groups’ code of ethics? What are the group’s expectations for professional behavior? How will it expectations be enforced? A few caveats. One. The funder has an overindulged 22 year old son who has floundered in and out of college since high school. He thinks it would be a great experience for his son and makes his presence on the mission a requirement. He must also be a part of the planning team and carry his own weight of the work. You have discovered that the son is a womanizer and is likely to try to hit on every female within ten feet. You have also discovered that he likes to party and drink and sleep it off the next morning. The group must devise a way to incorporate this unwilling participant without offending his father and totally disrupting the mission. Two. A newly licensed general practitioner has agreed to join the team. The team is ecstatic until he is suspected of illegal drug use. No one has been able to prove it, but subtle signs are there. He performs well with patients, but can be withdrawn, moody and short-tempered with staff. His behavior is impacting the team’s ability to provide quality care. What strategies will be implemented to address his impact on the team? Finally, one of the female members of the team is secretly attracted to the doctor. You are not sure you can trust her to support the team’s decisions and strategies to address the tension within the group. The team is concerned she may undermine their efforts. Debbie is a devout Jehovah’s Witness and refuses a blood transfusion. She has come to the mobile clinic for prenatal care as she has not had any for seven months. More than likely, she will deliver while the Mission is serving her small community. Debbie is pregnant and has history of a bleeding disorder, and insists that if she hemorrhages during her delivery, the physician cannot give her any transfusions. What next? Does Debbie have the “right” to make the decision for her baby? How should the team approach Debbie? Harry, age 65, has chronic asthma. Even though he is very allergic to cat fur, he is very attached to his two cats, Jon and Jovi. Harry does ok with is asthma and knows that smoking a pack of cigarettes a day does not help his situation. The team physician has treated Harry’s asthma and tried to counsel him and convince Harry to quit smoking. He/she is reluctant to prescribe Harry most asthma medication because of the adverse side effects, and the simple fact that a change in Harry’s lifestyle will do more good than any medication. While covering the case in a team meeting, the doctor blurts out, I’m sick of treating these ignorant people who refuse to help themselves. What is the team’s response? What are the ethical issues? A patient visiting the Mercy Mission Mobile Clinic is a 32 year old female. She reveals to you that she has recently learned that she is HIV positive. She is very candid with you and provided a comprehensive list of all the medications she is currently taking. She is rather nonchalant about her condition and even states that she was probably a bit too wild in her younger days. Approximately 3 weeks later, your sponsor’s son brings her to a staff cookout. They are obviously “involved.” How should the team respond?

Describe and justify your clinic location. Redeem St. Thomas" Team Weekly Summary Redeeming St. Thomas Humanitarian Project commenced with the three of us as volunteers. Amy took the role of the team leader, Jade as the motivator and Sarah as the team supporter. We had a good start off though we encountered some challenges when it came to communication. We usually communicate via Skype about the points that we are working on. We also use texts a lot, like almost every day. We had a meeting on Tuesday morning at 12:00 Pm via Skype though it did not go well, so we decided that we are going to discuss via text and google doc. Members of the team seem to be operating on a tight schedule, but we are trying our best to find time to communicate effectively. During the meeting, everyone had a different opinion on the operation hours. For instance, our team supporter had the idea that the hours of operation should be from 7 am to 6 pm, so that way we can serve as many patients as we can in daylight. Though we had to decide on operational hours which will follow the schedule of 8am-6pm with lunch breaks Monday through Friday and 8am-3pm on Saturday Though, we decided as a team that the 8-6 schedule comes along with its pros and cons. Some of the advantages include; It is typical hours for a medical office, so the schedule should be acceptable, and It gives employees sufficient time to accomplish other activities before the day ends. Also, the schedule enables flexibility, reduces overload and burnout of employees. The cons include; Patients already in full-time jobs may miss out services while at their jobs, however, we hope to help this situation by providing Saturday hours. WEEKLY SUMMARY REPORT 4 After doing further research concerning the population to be served, the "Redeem St. Thomas" team will have to employ trained physicians, nurses, pharmacist, emergency medical personnel and non-medical staff volunteers to help. Their duties and responsibilities will be defined. A management team will be formed to direct and supervise the work. More so, they will be tasked to develop problem-solving mechanisms among workers.

Sexual Harassment often makes reference to conduct with sexual undertones that are
unwelcomed. When the founder’s son makes numerous attempts sexually in relation to work
colleagues, his conduct can be categorized as harassment. The laws that are made available by
the government in America as well as those that pertain to various states are geared towards
employee protection from unsolicited attention that is sexual in nature (Morreim, 2007).
The laws that are provided by American states are more stringent in comparison to
Federal laws. The law provides that the awareness of the improper conduct of employee...
