Assignment #3: Paper discussing ways to raise organizational awareness of specific responsibilities
Select a topic from the list below.
The purpose of this assignment is for you to prepare a training presentation in the form of a paper. The purpose of the presentation is to raise the awareness of a specific employee group in a specific health care setting regarding a potentially critical aspect of their responsibilities. Your task is to target the right issue for the correct employee population and detail five important points of responsibility for employees and for the organization as it relates to the law. In other words you are either a head of community outreach or senior administrator thus your discussion should be as if you were encouraging compliance among the employee group.
In short, what do they need to know?
For example: The False Credentials paper issue would be for HR offices while the Critical Event might be for operating room technicians. Patient Treatment Consent might be a good paper for a Palliative Care Organization or an Oncology Clinic discharge planning staff. The paper must discuss accurate information for the setting with full consideration of the relevant state and federal laws with citations that are accessible by the instructor. The paper develops ten key points the target employees should know about compliance with the topic.
Include “For more information about this issue…” as a point and also as a reference or references in your Conclusion.
