Question description

Effective leaders have a high degree of self-awareness and know how to leverage their strengths in the workplace. Assessments are a valuable tool that professionals can use to learn more about themselves and consider how their temperament and preferences influence their interactions with others.

As you engage in this learning process, it is important to remember that everyone—regardless of temperament type or related preferences—experiences some challenges with regard to leadership. The key to success is being able to recognize and leverage your own strengths while honoring differences among your colleagues.

At some point in your leadership career, you will encounter an ethical or moral dilemma that requires you to take a stand and defend your position.

For this Assignment, you evaluate an issue and consider how you could act as a moral agent or advocate, facilitating the resolution of the issue for a positive outcome.

To prepare: This section is things that need to be taken into consideration when writing the paper

·Consider the examples of leadership demonstrated in this week’s media presentation and the other Learning Resources. ( The PDF Version of the transcript has been attached See above)

·To further your self-knowledge, you are required to complete the Kiersey Temperament as indicated in this week’s Learning Resources. Consider your leadership style, including your strengths for leading others and include your results from Kiersey Temperament Sorter to describe potential challenges related to your leadership style. (See Below I have my results )

·Mentally survey your work environment, or one with which you are familiar, and identify a timely issue/dilemma that requires you to perform the leadership role of moral agent or advocate to improve a situation (e.g., speaking or acting on behalf of a vulnerable patient, the need for appropriate staffing, a colleague being treated unfairly). ( You can choose any issue/ dilemma)

·What ethical, moral, or legal skills, dispositions, and/or strategies would help you resolve this dilemma? Define the differences between ethical, moral, and legal leadership.

·Finally, consider the values and principles that guide the nursing profession; the organization’s mission, vision, and values; the leadership and management competencies addressed in this course; and your own values and reasons for entering the profession. What motivation do you see for taking a stand on an important issue even when it is difficult to do so?

To complete: This section is the content of the paper

Write a 4 to 5 page paper (page count does not include title and reference page) that addresses the following:

·Introduce the conceptual frameworks of the ethical constructs of ethics, moral, or legal standards and the purpose of the paper.

·Consider an ethical, moral, or legal dilemma that you have encountered in your work environment and describe it.

·Analyze the moral, ethical, and legal implications utilized in this situation. Describe your role as a moral agent or advocate for this specific issue.

·Consider your leadership styles identified by your self-assessment and determine if they act as a barrier or facilitation during this dilemma.

My Keirsey Temperament Sorter Results indicates that my personality type is that of the

Guardians (SJ's)are the cornerstone of society, for they are the temperament given to serving and preserving our most important social institutions. Guardians have natural talent in managing goods and services--from supervision to maintenance and supply -- and they use all their skills to keep things running smoothly in their families, communities, schools, churches, hospitals, and businesses.

Guardians can have a lot of fun with their friends, but they are quite serious about their duties and responsibilities. Guardians take pride in being dependable and trustworthy; if there's a job to be done, they can be counted on to put their shoulder to the wheel. Guardians also believe in law and order, and sometimes worry that respect for authority, even a fundamental sense of right and wrong, is being lost. Perhaps this is why Guardians honor customs and traditions so strongly -- they are familiar patterns that help bring stability to our modern, fast-paced world.

Practical and down-to-earth, Guardians believe in following the rules and cooperating with others. They are not very comfortable winging it or blazing new trails; working steadily within the system is the Guardian way, for in the long run loyalty, discipline, and teamwork get the job done right. Guardians are meticulous about schedules and have a sharp eye for proper procedures. They are cautious about change, even though they know that change can be healthy for an institution. Better to go slowly, they say, and look before you leap.

Guardians make up as much as 40 to 45 percent of the population, and a good thing, because they usually end up doing all the indispensable but thankless jobs everyone else takes for granted.

In any environment, including your work place, you are usually focused on making people happy and facilitating harmonious relationships. You often lend "aid and comfort" by drawing on a combination of tradition, past experience, and the direction of established authority. In your ideal job, people would give of themselves and work toward the good of the group.

“Ethical, Moral, and Legal Leadership” Program Transcript TERRY MAHAN BUTTARO: The moral, legal, ethical implications of practice are all back to the value of providing the best patient care for the community and for the individual patient. That's what being a health care provider is all about. And those values are reflected in the American Nurses Association, the Academy of Nurse Practitioners. Those are all values that we all ascribe to, physicians also. All right. Well, come on in and sit down. It guides practice every day. It's why we explain the risks and benefits to patients about medicines or about different procedures or about choosing not to do something. Good. OK, excellent. MALE SPEAKER: All right. TERRY MAHAN BUTTARO: All right. Now, make sure-You have to have integrity to be a health care provider. You have to explain clearly and succinctly about what it is that patients face. You know, we have a patient in an adjacent state who was brought in recently by her home health care worker. And she actually had to get permission from the home health care agency for this woman to drive her here. This woman is older. None of her family lives close by. She's outlived many of her friends. And she came in because in our practice, it is kind of an unwritten rule, but it's well-spoken to help, that we don't just continue to renew medicines. Patients need to be seen at least once a year, and for some meds, possibly more often. So she had to come in to see us to get her prescriptions, and I actually saw her. So she didn't have complaints. She really said, I just want my medicines. And she said, I can never come back, because I can't get a ride here. I said, well, you need to have some blood tests, 'cause you're on medicines that will affect your kidneys and some other things. And I need to be able to figure out a way to help you. So, I renewed her prescriptions. I sent her home, but she did go and get labs. And the home health care worker actually took her to get labs right away. Because our problem here is we don't have labs and diagnostics right on site, so they have to go to the hospital to get these done. © 2012 Laureate Education, Inc. 1 But her labs came back, and she was really anemic. But she can't get in here. So now, what are we going to do? So the girls in office were really helpful in brainstorming about how can we get this patient back into the practice. We could try Neurontin for her. FEMALE SPEAKER: OK. TERRY MAHAN BUTTARO: Has she tried that? FEMALE SPEAKER: Yeah. TERRY MAHAN BUTTARO: She did try that. Hmm. The visiting nurses were kind of the best idea about doing this. But in other situations, it's been calling patients about, can we talk to your family member? We're really concerned about this. FEMALE SPEAKER: Nothing to eat or drink after midnight. OK. Thanks a lot. Bye. TERRY MAHAN BUTTARO: I can also do home visits, which I've done before. And I can draw labs and bring the labs to the hospital. So that is another way that we'll try to provide the best patient care for patients. And that is something in the future that's going to be really imperative-- that if we want to keep people in the home, we have to have providers who can go into the home. Hi. MALE SPEAKER: Hi, good morning. TERRY MAHAN BUTTARO: How are you? MALE SPEAKER: Good. TERRY MAHAN BUTTARO: What's going on? MALE SPEAKER: Ah, just general checkup, I guess. TERRY MAHAN BUTTARO: I think nurse practitioners always have to remember that medicine is very humbling. One day you can feel great about what you've done and the care you provided. And another day, you might say, oh my god, how did I miss that? Or why did I think to prescribe that drug instead of another drug? So every day is a new day. Here we go. So just give this to Miss Pixie, and we'll see. OK? © 2012 Laureate Education, Inc. 2 MALE SPEAKER: OK. Thank you. TERRY MAHAN BUTTARO: Good. Good to see you. ABIGAIL STRIBLEA: One of the main focuses of our training with students is to expose them to the possibility of providing for vulnerable populations, of working in a community clinic setting. In addition to that, we're trying to instill in them the value of providing care for homeless patients or those that are in a vulnerable situation. These are patients that often have nowhere else to go, so the care you provide is very important to them. JANET WEIR: You know, especially working with an under-served population or a homeless population, they don't have some of the, I guess, luxuries we do. So even just within giving them medication, sometimes they don't have a place to store it. Especially, when you're talking about insulin, where you need to keep it cold. So it's keeping that in mind. And sometimes we have to hold onto their medication, and then they have to come up and take it as needed. And a lot of the homeless population also have mental illness. So just taking care of themselves is a really big burden, even just taking care of their own health care needs. And so taking that into consideration. HANNAH BAMPTON: Well, you can come into the clinic as a walk-in. And we can do just basic health maintenance stuff that you should get every year. Often, unfortunately, a lot of homeless people are treated as kind of second-class citizens. And an example, actually-- Very recently, there was a single man. I think he was in his '40s. And he was discharged from a local hospital with new amputation. He had a new-- I think it was his right foot-- below-the-knee amputation from diabetes complications. So that was a new thing he had to deal with. He had to learn to be in a wheelchair and how to be independent, which is huge. And you need help doing that. And in addition to that, he needed dressing changes daily for the wound. And then he also had a chronic wound on his back that was pretty bad and definitely needed daily dressing changes. And he was discharged here. And then our clinic is kind of an outpatient clinic. It's not really a skilled nursing facility or an assisted living facility. So in the meantime, we adapted. And we got him an emergency bed here in the shelter, and then just brought him up to the clinic every day so we could do those dressing changes. Which kind of slowed down our flow, 'cause it's not really our role. But we just had to do it, and we were glad to. © 2012 Laureate Education, Inc. 3 And then through case management-- Antonio, one of our medical assistants, is really good at that. He kind of knows everything around here. He knows people by name. And so he was able to get him into a skilled nursing facility, I think after only three or four days. So that one worked out pretty well. And in the meantime, we could manage him and take care of him. But he really needed that higher level of care. And he should have gone there straight from the hospital, from being discharged. Often, people are kind of shushed away. So we try to get them all the resources that they really need. DR. MARY MARFISEE: As far as ethical issues, I think that to work in a community clinic setting and to work with under-served populations, you have to know that you really do want to serve that population. Because it's not always easy to interact with somebody who may have a different kind of social agenda than you do or may not have the same kind of social graces or customs that you might. And I think foremost, you have to keep yourself as non-judgmental as you can be. It really is to your benefit to be that way. And also, consider yourself really a servant. If you get humbled by your servantship, then I think you'll always be in good shape. © 2012 Laureate Education, Inc. 4
1 Title of Paper – Not Assignment # Your Name Walden University NURS 6053N Interprof Org & Sys Date Dr. E. Townsley TITLE OF THE PAPER 2 Title of the Paper The opening paragraph of your paper will provide your readers with their initial impressions of your argument, your writing style, and the overall quality of your work.

Ethical, moral and legal leadership
The nursing environment is very complex and sensitive because there are a number of key
elements, which shape individual development and wellbeing where it is possible to achieve a
greater level of engagement across different patients. Patients tend to have varying health needs
and have varying healthcare approaches where it is possible to create a conducive environment
where it is possible to improve the existing quality healthcare. In nursing practice, integrity and
nursing professional standards form the basis of practice. It is important to develop a greater level
of understanding on the underlying elements that influence the quality of healthcare. However, the
nursing practice has significant ethical challenges, which are detrimental to nursing care practice.
Therefore, in this case, the patient has significant challenges regarding the existing needs, which
must be taken into consideration to improve the effective and quality healthcare. The patient
refuses blood products in an attempt to save her life. Therefore, in the paper I will evaluate the
major issues involve morals and ethical aspects that need to be put in place to develop a greater
understanding on the needs of the patients.
Conceptual framework
The major ethical concepts that need to be evaluated in this case include beneficence and
autonomy, which dictate the manner under which nursing care providers need to carry out their
responsibilities and interaction with patients who have special needs. The nursing ethical principles
have been effectively developed to streamline the nursing working environment where they can
be able to concentrate on delivery of quality healthcare in their respective field of practice. The
international council of Nurses code of ethics is very clear in providing a greater focus on key
ethical aspects that provide a key focus and engagement within nursing practice. The code of ethics
