Individual Analysis

...Nurses Association, 2010, p. 3) defines contemporary nursing: “Nursing is the protection, promotion, and optimization of health and abilities, prevention of illness and injury, alleviation of suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human response, and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, communities, and populations.” I believe my role, as a nurse is consistent with the scope of practice outlined by ANA and the contemporary definition cited. As a nurse, I strive to be clinically competent and aware of the constant challenges that one faces on a daily basis. Being well informed promotes health and prevents further illness and injuries. One goal I try to set aside every week is to attend a weekly ground rounds meeting, where additional education is provided on a specific case study. This opportunity allows me to stay current and up to date on new medications available, research findings and team collaboration feedback from staff on effective treatment options for optimal patient outcome. In addition, completing required competencies and being a member of Oncology Nursing Society also strengthens my knowledge and skill in providing the best evidence based practice to an individual and their families. Being a resource nurse for my unit allows me the opportunity to share my knowledge with the staff and actively participate in mentoring young nurses build a strong foundation and develop critical thinking skills. Education is critical in the nursing......

This particular case pertains to a convenience store (Ya Ya Market) robbery in Cleveland, Ohio to which a store clerk, (DeWayne Jacobs, 57 years old) was shot in the head and killed during the robbery. The two suspects fled out of the store and was seen getting into a van on the passenger side in the alley behind the store. Since the two that came out of the store got into the passenger side of the van that would indicate that there are at least three suspects involved in the crime. Detective Tim Entenok and Detective Kathleen Carlin of the Cleveland Police Department are called in to investigate the homicide. Delialah Turner worked at the store and lived above the store. During the investigation the detectives find that there has been other robberies around that convenience store which resulted in another murder during one of the other robberies.

The Analysis of Interview

...Part One 1. The definition of interview Interview is a conversation in which one person (the interviewer) elicits information from another person (the subject or interviewee). A transcript or account of such a conversation is also called an interview. The interview is both a research method and a popular form of nonfiction. 2. The function and importance of interview Interview is a good and straight way to help the audience to know the things they are unfamiliar with and even unknown. An interview is an exchange of information between interviewer and interviewee. In addition, interview is the way more attractive and interesting than others. Meanwhile, the interviewer must be able to ask a question and then listen to the entire response, all the time zeroing in on the key points. Interviewers who are well-prepared should be able to tell when the interviewee is telling the truth, embellishing it or lying. When an interviewer asks the right questions with finesse, an interviewee becomes a window to the public. Part Two 1.

Policy Interview & Analysis

...Policy Interview & Analysis The health care delivery system that I researched is a medical clinic. The policy related question’s which I identified at this clinic were all related billing practices. Some of these issues are as follows: • Invisible charges, such as bills coming in lump forms. The solution is itemized billing statements. • Large sums are being charged for small items such as thermometers. A solution to this is to bring your own. • Double billing is what should be included in the price of your visit such as gloves used to examine you. A solution is to check your bill to make sure you were not billed. A patient needs to be aware of what they are being billed for. • Balance billing is doctors who are pre-approved through the insurance companies. If you choose to use a doctor who is not in that network you can be charged more. The solution is if you choose to use the doctor not in the insurance network then make sure they will except what the insurance pays before seeing you. 3 • Charging more for the uninsured is when practices charge more for the insured in order to cover for the uninsured. A solution is that if you are uninsured ask clinics to give you a discount for your bill for cash. • Charging for charity is a tax break for clinics. They must offer free services to needy and low income patients. A possible solution for this is to refer them to Medicaid services. • Relentlessly pursuing debts is when a bill is unpaid and the......

Individual Analysis in Ghana

...case study is an intensive analysis of an individual, group, person or event. This research method is common to science; this research strategy is an empirical enquiry that investigates a phenomenon within its real life context. Case studies began from the period of Maliknoski, Raddclife Brown, rather than using samples and following a rigid protocol to examine limited number of variables, case studies involve an in depth, longitudinal (over a long period of time) examination of a single instance or event, they provide a systematic way of looking at events, collecting data, analyzing information and reports, as a result the researcher may gain sharpened understanding of why the instance happened, why it did and hence which is more important to look at extensively. An extended case study is a series of cases which treats each case as a stage in an ongoing process of social relations between specific persons and groups in a social system and culture. This technique requires taking a series of specific incidents through a period of time and showing how these incidents or cases are related to the development and changes of social relations among these persons and groups acting within the framework of their social system. In addition the ethnographer not only presents the reader abstractions as inference from his field material but also provides some of the material itself. This puts the reader in a better position to evaluate the ethnographer’s analysis, not only on the basis of......
