Question Description

Week 5 - Senior Project

Senior Project

To start, select one of the following approved topics for your Senior Project. You may also have a topic of your choice approved by the instructor in Week One. Many of the approved topics have specific subtopics outlined and, while these topics are not all-inclusive, they do provide insight into specific areas to consider.

Approved Topic

Analyze the impact of technology on how health care services are delivered. The impact of technology on employee performance, organizational structure, and management planning may also be considered.

After identifying your topic, choose a health care organization in your area. This organization may be small or large and may provide single inpatient health service or multiple outpatient services; it is your choice. Consider your topic in light of the leadership of this organization and research the challenges and successes it has faced in managing operational effectiveness. You are welcome to use as many research methods as possible to obtain information for your organization and its managers (e.g., web-based resources, electronic articles, or personal interviews). The more informed you are, the better prepared you will be to complete your project.

Finally, develop a management training program that includes relevant guidelines and information to combat the issues identified in the selected topic, as well as recommendations for managers to more effectively lead health care organizations. Your training program should be in the form of a 20 to 25 slide PowerPoint presentation (excluding title and reference slides) that includes comprehensive speaker’s notes (i.e., at least 150 words) for each slide. Utilize at least three to five scholarly sources from the Ashford University Library and two to three current, scholarly web sources (total of five to eight references required). All sources must be cited according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Your presentation must be engaging and relevant to your audience. Lines of text on a slide will not be sufficient for this project. It should contain at least five images, graphics, and/or multimedia that communicate your training clearly to your audience. For tips on creating an excellent presentation, read this overview.

This is a historical model developed in the 1940s, but still widely utilized today. You should be familiar with how this model works. There are many applications available on the World Wide Web and one that is very interactive is linked here http://www.managementstudyguide.com/shannon-and-weaver-model-ofcommunication.htm (http://www.managementstudyguide.com/shannon-and-weaver-model-ofcommunication.htm) . Communication skills focus on the ability to send, interpret, and receive information. Communications is one of the most important skills that a manager can possess. Problems and conflicts can occur in the workplace whenever communication is not optimal. Sometimes messages may not presented in a clear manner, and in other instances, they may not be decoded differently than intended. The four elements of communication are the sender, the message, the receiver, and feedback. Conflicts within groups due to poor communication can occur at any of these points. Although many roadblocks to effective communications exist, managers must understand obstacles to effective communication and seek ways to overcome them. Some of the barriers and challenges to effective communications may revolve around culture, language, gender, spiritual, professional status, and critical thinking issues (Liebler & McConnell, 2008). Effective communications can improve employee satisfaction and create a pleasing work climate. Although effective communication is important in any situation, it is especially needed in the health care environment. Poor communications can detrimental effects on business operations and patient outcomes in health care. In addition to addressing team communications issues, managers must be prepared to address communications issues associated with patients in the health care. Managers must possess different styles of communication when interacting with patients that might include adults of varying ages, disabled individuals, and children (DuPre, 2005). DuPre (2005) identified the following six issues as important to understanding the study of health communications: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Crucial to health care encounters Source of personal confidence and coping ability Saves time and money Helps health care organizations operate effectively Can help people improve their health status Enrich career opportunities Some of the barriers and challenges to effective communications may revolve around culture, language, gender, spiritual, professional status, and critical thinking issues (Liebler & McConnell, 2008). Other barriers may include nonverbal clues, stereotypes, imprecise terms, and differing perceptions (Lombardi & Schermerhorn, 2007). Because many roadblocks to effective communications exist, managers must understand obstacles and seek ways to overcome them. Managers must be prepared to address communications issues associated with patients in the health care and members of the organization. Because individuals and situations vary, managers must possess and be capable of using a variety communication styles in dealing with employees, other staff, and the public. The Gordian Knot Healthcare is the most complex and regulated business in America. As we know there is great difficulty in balancing the healthcare triad of costs, quality, and access to care. Ineffective resource allocation in one area negatively affects the other two according to Freeman's stakeholder theoretical tenets. This challenge of balancing costs, quality, and access was referred to in the article as the "Gordian knot" (a complex, often unsolvable puzzle). For more on the Gordian knot and the continued quest for the sword to cut through the complexity...read on. One day, according to ancient Greek legend, a poor peasant called Gordius arrived with his wife in a public square of Phrygia in an ox cart. As chance would have it, so the legend continues, an oracle had previously informed the populace that their future king would come into town riding in a wagon. Seeing Gordius, therefore, the people made him king. In gratitude, Gordius dedicated his ox cart to Zeus, tying it up with a highly intricate knot - - the Gordian knot. Another oracle -- or maybe the same one, the legend is not specific, but oracles are plentiful in Greek mythology -- foretold that the person who untied the knot would rule all of Asia. The problem of untying the Gordian knot resisted all attempted solutions until the year 333 B.C., when Alexander the Great -- not known for his lack of ambition when it came to ruling Asia -- cut through it with a sword. "Cheat!" you might cry. And although you might have been unwise to have pointed it out in Alexander's presence, his method did seem to go against the spirit of the problem. Surely, the challenge was to solve the puzzle solely by manipulating the knot, not by cutting it. But wait a minute. Alexander was no dummy. As a former student of Aristotle, he would have been no stranger to logical puzzles. We too can learn from this example and cut through the healthcare challenges, albeit it may take a few swings of the sword. Universal Strategies for Success and Parting Words of Wisdom from Dr. Eric 1. Think logically and avoid making judgments before you have had time to consider all stakeholder perspectives and considerations for costs, quality, and access to care. 2. Communicate succinctly and appropriately to the audience (common communication errors attached). 3. Understand that change is necessary for growth, but there must be a reason/rationale for the change. Change for the sake of change is not appropriate. 4. Know the #1 fear of all humans is "rejection". 5. Know the #1 need of all humans is "acceptance". Keep these in mind class and you will go far as a healthcare administrator and leader. Also remember that your final project in this class should be viewed as a Business Card. Name, Expert in _______. Fill in the blank with the topic you choose to become an expert on in this class. There are many job opportunities waiting for you based on your expert knowledge in healthcare administration and management. Best wishes on an abundance for future successes, Dr. Eric.
