Miami Dade College Developing Organizational Policies and Practices Paper

Category: Nursing

Description

Competing needs arise within any organization as employees seek to meet their targets and leaders seek to meet company goals. As a leader, successful management of these goals requires establishing priorities and allocating resources accordingly.

Within a healthcare setting, the needs of the workforce, resources, and patients are often in conflict. Mandatory overtime, implementation of staffing ratios, use of unlicensed assisting personnel, and employer reductions of education benefits are examples of practices that might lead to conflicting needs in practice.

Leaders can contribute to both the problem and the solution through policies, action, and inaction. In this Assignment, you will further develop the white paper you began work on in Module 1 by addressing competing needs within your organization.

To Prepare:

Review the national healthcare issue/stressor you      examined in your Assignment for Module 1, and review the analysis of the      healthcare issue/stressor you selected.

Identify and review two evidence-based scholarly      resources that focus on proposed policies/practices to apply to your      selected healthcare issue/stressor.

Reflect on the feedback you received from your      colleagues on your Discussion post regarding competing needs.

The Assignment (4-5 pages):

  • Developing Organizational Policies and Practices

Add a section to the paper you submitted in Module 1. The new section should address the following:

  • Identify and describe at least two competing needs      impacting your selected healthcare issue/stressor.

Describe a relevant policy or practice in your organization      that may influence your selected healthcare issue/stressor.

  • Critique the policy for ethical considerations, and      explain the policy’s strengths and challenges in promoting ethics.

Recommend one or more policy or practice changes      designed to balance the competing needs of resources, workers, and      patients, while addressing any ethical shortcomings of the existing      policies. Be specific and provide examples.

Cite evidence that informs the healthcare      issue/stressor and/or the policies, and provide two scholarly resources in      support of your policy or practice recommendations.
