  • Business and the Effects of Environmental Regulation

    This is a 9 page paper discussing the impact environmental legislation has had on business and the role of business in regards to global resource management and conservation. Within the last two decades, the environmental impact of business and industry has led to necessary legislation in global resource management.

On the other hand, there has also been a great deal of waste in the business and industry sectors which has had an extreme environmental impact globally. Because of this, the role of business in regards to global resource management and conservation has increased significantly.

Because the world’s population and need is seen as increasing while the natural resources around the world are seen as decreasing, it is the expected role of business to not only comply with environmental legislation which will decrease the environmental impact of industry but businesses must also become proactive in the areas of conservation and global resource management.

  • Creative Management Styles and Research

    A 60 page research-oriented paper discussing creative management styles. There are organizations that have not been able to make the transition from the traditional autocratic or authoritarian (rather than the authoritative) style of management. Today, creative management styles come in a variety of names: situational contingency management, the transformational approach, the cultural contingency approach, and value-based leadership. All, however, have their roots in TQM. Organizations that could not be successful in implementing TQM generally are not successful in implementing any of these, either, because all, including TQM, require a corporate culture that supports creativity and a commitment to change, and values open communication between workers and departments to the point that they will defend it if necessary. This paper examines the underlying problems preventing the formation and nurturing of that corporate culture so necessary for sustaining any creative management style.

  • Royal Canadian Mounted Police and Approaches to Conflict Management

    This is a 5 page paper discussing conflict management in the RCMP. Conflict management techniques are considered a large and very important part of organizations today. Management has for decades struggled with conflict management using highly formalized methods in which the manager must instigate the process and employees must file official grievances; causing a negotiation process which could last from months to years to complete. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) however has recently adopted a simple yet effective conflict management program called “Alternative Dispute Resolution” or ADR which bases its premise on “fast, friendly, flexible and fair” resolutions instigated at the lowest possible levels and the process is undertaken immediately for quick resolution. Largely, the program is well supported throughout the organization and the process leaves employees feeling a great deal of satisfaction in the resolution of their conflicts. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Learning Organizations' Functions of Management

    A 6 page paper discussing the four primary functions of management – Planning, Organizing, Leading and Controlling – in both their historic meanings and as they are applied to the learning organization.

It is in this vein that at least one of the labels of the four functions of management, controlling, carries a negative connotation.

That focus enables managers of all departments to be better able to meet their objectives, which presently lie in making Proctor & Gamble a global company with local focus.

  • Scientific and Classical Management

    8 pages in length. Classical management carries with it myriad definitions, in particular the need to maintain an atmosphere that is restrained and simple, conforming to established taste of critical standards or adhering to traditional forms. Scientific management, on the other hand, represents the coupling of science and engineering as they relate to work practices as a means by which to augment management control and productivity. Its emergence took place in the forty-year span between 1880 and 1920, where it was significantly dependent upon machinery in order for work to be appropriately subdivided into highly specialized, routine tasks. From a management point of view, the very foundation of the classical theory was to establish a universal method appropriate for all situations; indeed, it was a search for truth. It was as if the theorists were in search of an end all be all sort of application that would effectively address all questions as to how organizations worked and how managers should managed.

  • Management Perspectives of the United States,Japan, and Germany

    A 19 page paper evaluating the thought that US businesses make more business decisions based on short-term performance than do businesses in Germany or Japan. Companies in other parts of the world seem not to be quite so quick to act on the basis of short-term results, but rather to build for the long term. Germany’s BMW and Japan’s Mitsubishi provide distinct counterpoints to the system that has developed in the United States. There are indications, however, that such attention to longevity is changing in today’s business environment. The paper describes some of those changes and points to the influence of long-standing cultural traditions that continue to provide direction in both Germany and Japan. Bibliography lists 14 sources.

  • Approaches to Conflict Management

    3 pages in length. Based upon the student's collaborative or problem solving approach to conflict management, which supports a win-win outcome, this is somewhat contradictory to her employer's approach of direct conflict management, which reflects either a win-lose or lose-lose perspective. The student, whose assessment illustrates high ratings for collaborating (12) and very low for avoiding (4), clearly advocates a much more equitable method of conflict management where a resolution is sought by way of cooperativeness and high assertiveness. By contrast, her employer seeks to rectify conflict in a less interactive fashion by force and domination. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

  • Formation of Security Management Policy and Risk Management Effects

    An 18 page paper discussing issues that need to be addressed when forming security risk management policy. The very essence of developing an effective security policy is dependent in great extent to the level of risk that exists. It has been demonstrated repeatedly that network and computer administrators face the threat of security breach each day. Building security is less predictable, particularly as groups of fanaticals place their energies into dreaming up increasingly grand plans for murdering innocents by the thousands. Those responsible for forming and implementing security management policy must be aware of the types of risk faced by the organization and then control for contributing factors. The paper discusses management of risks that are both physical and informational. Bibliography lists 17 sources.

  • The Major Shifts in Practices in Management Accounting

    A 10 page paper discussing changes in the profession arising from changes in technology, globalization and competitive strategies. Integrated management accounting systems, such as those arising from activity-based costing and management (ABC/ABM) systems with enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems can be appealing for their instant accessibility to information in real-time, but they also can detract from sound decision making based on trends more easily discernible from the more standard monthly and annual reports of traditional management accounting systems. There can be a place for both, but their uses need to be as clearly defined as the qualities they are measuring. Bibliography lists 16 sources.

  • U.S. and Japan HRM

    A 20 page paper. Human resource management has evolved over the last fifty or more years in the United States to become an integral and essential part of the American corporation.

  • Middle Managers and TQM Implementation Implications

    A 65 page paper discussing reasons for failure of TQM implementation, particularly as it applies to middle managers. The paper gives an overview of the approaches to TQM of Deming, Juran and Crosby, and focuses on Deming's 14 Points as the basis for properly-applied TQM practice. Deming's philosophy of management within the framework of TQM leaves no room for authoritarianism or autocracy; participative management is required if TQM implementation is to be successful in any firm of any size. The paper includes discussion of a mail survey identifying three middle-management attitudes toward TQM's potential effects on their jobs, including detailed descriptions of both observed and potential limitations of the study. It concludes that middle managers have legitimate fears that can be overcome with Deming's admonishment to invest in training and education of all employees, including the middle managers of which Deming himself made no mention. Bibliography lists 31 sources.

  • Supply Chain Management and Radio Frequency Identification Tags

  • Nursing Theory and Pain Management

    A 5 page paper constructing a new theory of nursing as it relates to postoperative pain management following hip replacement surgery. The new nursing theory constructed here is that a better approach to postoperative pain management associated with hip replacement surgery is to avoid as much immediate pain sensation as possible. This restricts use of the drugs most open to abuse to use only during the first 24 hours following surgery, and it further restricts the use of that class of drugs to the hospital setting where there often is greater accountability. Further, it disallows interference of the first subsystem of pain management with the second, and can serve to result in more favorable patient outcomes. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

Bibliography lists 2 sources.

  • Group Process/Nursing

    A 4 page research paper that discusses group psychology in relation to nursing management. The tasks and objectives associated with nursing and nursing management can be understood in terms of the broader context of group roles and group process as outlined by what is known concerning leadership and group psychology. When a task is delegated to a group and that group functions as a team, with each member responsible for a specific role, with each team member having the skills to execute that role, this strategy becomes "the manager's best bet, even though groups rarely function perfecting," to accomplishing specific tasks and goals (La Monica 23). As this suggests, group psychology plays an integral role in nursing management. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • eCommerce Content Management

    33 pages in length. The ever-changing face of global e-commerce has called for greater efficiency when it comes to content management, a critical component of online retailers that helps maintain unstructured information found on any given Web site. This information exists in many digital forms, not the least of which include text documents, engineering drawings, XML, still images, audio/video files and many other types/formats. Modification is a primary consideration when addressing issues of content management, given the constant modification required for maintaining a current cyberlocation. This ability to constantly modify a Web site's content also carries with it a tremendous responsibility for doing so properly in relation to easy reorganization and updating. The reason why content management has become such a critical component to the success of e-commerce sites is, as Ko et al (2002) note, is because Internet/Web users are becoming more savvy with so many emerging resources. Bibliography lists 23 sources.

  • Leadership and Management in Nursing

    A 3 page research paper/essay that discusses leadership and management in nursing. The ongoing nursing shortage has generated numerous changes in the nursing manager role, as the exemplary functioning of nursing leadership has become increasing crucial to the priority of continuing to delivery quality patient care (Heller, et al, 2004). Consequently, there has been a huge interest in nursing research on the topic of leadership in recent years. However, Redfern points out that while nursing managers are required to be effective leaders, managerial skills are also important as "leadership without management is an abdication of responsibility that can lead to disaster" (Redfern, 2008, p. 10). As this statement emphasizes, both leadership and management are essential to achieving the goals of nursing and both factors must intertwine synergistically to achieve nursing goals. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Leadership, Management and Changes in These Fields

    A 7 page paper comparing a century-old view of management with today’s practices. Many of Henri Fayol’s concepts are in evidence today, but his primary precepts – i.e., one “right” form of organization, one “right” manner of approaching organizational issues; full decision-making responsibility for the CEO and none other – have fallen out of favor in preference for more participative approaches to management that also account for and make use of differences among individuals, differences that can give organizations competitive advantage in their industries. The purpose here is to weigh Fayol’s concepts against today’s management practices. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Eye on the Future Business People in Calgary and the Bow Valley, 1870-1900 by Henry C. Klassen

    A 6 page review of Eye on the Future: Business People in Calgary and the Bow Valley, 1870-1900 by Henry C. Klassen (University of Calgary Press, 2002).

Klassen's history covers the early stages of industrialization through the beginnings of consumerism from a business history perspective. The scholarship behind Klassen's book is so extensive that, as this examination demonstrates, it can be viewed as coming close to being an anthropological study of the varied factors that come together to create a city and shape the course of history for a region. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

The companies used are Dyson Appliance from the UK and Apple Computer from the US. Bibliography lists 15 sources.

  • Post Second World War Business History of Japan

    A 7 page paper tracing the changes in Japanese business following World War II. Today, the keiretsu structure that allowed massive accumulation of nonperforming corporate debt has been dismantled, at least in that portion discouraging appropriate corporate governance. Economic consequences of past actions appear to be the limiting factor in Japan’s attempts to move past the effects of the bursting of its bubble economy and then the Asian currency crisis. Its foray into Western management styles discounted the value of its workers’ dedication to their companies. That dedication is grounded in centuries-old culture, however, and likely still exists beneath the layers of policy-imposed constraints. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Journal Article on Organizations and TQM Reviewed

    An 11 page critique of a journal article on TQM using other articles as a measure by which to critique it. There are several references available on the implementation of Total Quality Management (TQM), and dozens with reports of how it "fails" in two-thirds of the attempts to implement it. Those companies unsuccessful in making TQM a foundation of their business most often have selected only a few of the principles of the entire TQM philosophy, however, choosing to attend to the mechanics of the philosophy rather than the underlying principles of attention to customers and employees. The paper includes a short glossary of terms. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Ethics and Human Resource Management

    6 pages in length. Because society is fundamentally based upon performance and profit, it is not unusual to find that it is necessary to impart a sense of corporate social responsibility with regard to contemporary commerce. The ethical approaches of purpose, principle and consequence are integral components of business social performance; itemizing these contributions finds one incorporating the interests of ethics and morality within the corporate structure, essential concepts that are often absent from a Human Resources standpoint. It is important for the student to realize that the very issues of corporate social responsibility should rightly exist within every company's infrastructure; however, one can readily realize that social integrity is not something that is often at the forefront of modern day Human Resource Management. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • Knowledge Management and Information Technology

    A 13 page paper discussing the point at which IT data becomes organizational knowledge. In its early days and even until rather recently, IT provided only a means of tracking historical data and contributed virtually nothing to the bottom line. Every organization must operate as efficiently as possible in today's business environment, however, and IT moved into the position of being a strategic tool. The data it held then came to be knowledge that the organization could use and needs to use to achieve and maintain a competitive advantage. As Laudon (1995) notes, IT truly is too important to the organization to leave only to the IT professionals. Marketing and senior management need the knowledge it holds or can create in order to form the most effective strategy for the future. Bibliography lists 13 sources.

  • Bolman and Deal's Theories as they relate to School Systems

    This is a 10 page paper discussing the primary management practices within the school system in the context of Bolman and Deal’s four organizational frames. Bolman and Deal’s text “Reframing Organizations” (2003) deals with the concepts of frames within the workplace which employs the “usable knowledge” available from a management perspective and also addresses the failures within organizations “due to lack of imagination”. Organizations are broken into the four conceptual “frames” of structural, human resources, political and symbolic which account for the various aspects of planning, staffing, organizing, directing and controlling within any organization. The management functions within school systems can also work within these frames as they include all of the same vital components which must be managed and maintained as within corporations. A study published by Souchet (2001) is used to show the management practices within the school system in regards to the role of a principal within a small urban setting in the Mid-Western United States. The school principal within the school setting is “also known as the middle manager and the site administrator” in organizational terms and is considered as the major managerial influence within the school as he or she must determine “whether the education is effective or ineffective, whether morale is high or low, whether the school climate is positive or negative; whether personnel are satisfied or dissatisfied; whether students achieve or don’t achieve; whether parents and the public are cooperative or uncooperative; and whether there is effective or ineffective management and leadership”.

    6 pages in length. There is certainly enough to deal with in the workplace to have the added pressure of stress.

  • Wildlife and the Impact of Urbanization

    This is a 10 page paper discussing the history, context, management and philosophies behind the problem of urbanization and its impact on wildlife. Urbanization has resulted in a large negative impact on wildlife in addition in regards to the flora and fauna communities. Within the last 300 years in the U.S., deforestation for urban or agricultural use has fragmented wildlife populations through urban sprawl, linear land use (such as roads and power lands) small and large agricultural land plots in addition to the introduction of exotic plants and animals which have an impact on native plants and animals. Agricultural use and urbanization in addition to being the demise of some species also causes the shift in native plants and animals in certain areas; shifts which tend to allow for the proliferation of some species often at the expense of others. Preservation and conservation efforts within the U.S. are primarily the result of the ethics and philosophies as promoted by Aldo Leopold who called for ecological considerations in regards to any urban planning. Preservation methods today focus mainly on restraining urban sprawl through the promotion of inner city renewal, the purchase of undeveloped land for preservation, promotion of mass transit through railways and fewer roads, and set growth boundaries around urban areas.

    A 5 page paper discussing differences in management considerations of professionals as opposed to hourly service workers, such as the employees of a fast food restaurant.

This is particularly untrue for professionals involved in social work. There are issues of governance that must be addressed and rganizations need to have specific procedures in place of course. They also need to have the means to ensure accountability. Most social workers are committed to their jobs in terms of ideology and personal conviction, however. They are unlikely to require much if any supervision for the purposes of ensuring productivity. Adherence to procedure and creative solutions to administrative problems are of greater issue for social worker supervisors. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • HRM and Staffing

    11 pages in length. Staffing a company with competent, thorough and self-motivating people is a constant struggle for contemporary Human Resources departments; finding qualified employees who are not only knowledgeable but also personable and of the teamwork mindset is almost as difficult as finding that proverbial needle in a haystack. Today's work ethic is severely compromised compared with fifty years ago when doing a good job was as much of a satisfaction as earning a week's pay. People actually took pride in their work and would not consider giving less than one hundred percent effort. The contemporary workforce, however, is filled with self-absorbed individuals who approach a job with the attitude of "What's in it for me?," leaving HR departments frustrated with the lack of fortitude in today's workforce. However, there are ways to address a situation where perhaps the most perfect candidate has not filled the position, enabling HR managers to mold and guide their staff with communication, solid leadership and an interactive environment to the point where a cohesive alliance is developed. Bibliography lists 12 sources.

  • Project Standardization Viability

    Product standardization has a double edge. On the one hand, standardization provides protection to consumers and allows products to be built and configured very quickly. This puts a company’s products on the market within months rather than years, offering a return on investment (ROI) within an extremely short time frame between conceptualization to sales. Any quick ROI today can indicate a successful, viable company because the world is the marketplace, not just a city, town or country, as in the past. On the dark side, standardization promotes a world of copycat industries rather than innovation. That means that what worked thirty years ago has to continue to work now and ten years from now.... 15 References. jvPMBok.rtf

  • Ritz Carlton Hotels and TQM

    An 11 page paper discussing the second service organization, and the first hotel chain, to win the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. Experts in TQM previously would have believed that a hotel chain would not have been able to achieve an atmosphere of total quality and continuous improvement, but Ritz-Carlton has demonstrated that such an achievement is indeed possible. TQM obviously has been achievable at Ritz-Carlton, and in meaningful and lasting ways - employee turnover has dropped to less than 30 percent in an industry where 'normal' is 100 percent, and customer satisfaction perennially remains at 97 percent. In order to continue the trend, however, Ritz-Carlton will need to take extra precaution in ensuring that it does not become complacent with its commitment to quality. Continuous improvement will be the key, a factor apparently recognized already by Ritz-Carlton management and employees alike. Bibliography lists 12 sources.

  • Management of Corporate Culture

    12 pages in length. The existence of organizational culture within a company’s framework can be likened to the essential elements provided a flower by the life-giving sun: without the protective and stimulating direction provided by the sun’s gentle power, the flower would cease to exist.

  • Management Concepts in 'Wall Street' and 'Twelve Angry Men'

    5 pages in length. According to industry analysts, there has never been – nor will there ever be – a single, most effective manner by which to manage. Indeed, the vast number of components that comprise the overall aspect of leadership precludes there being an exclusive method for optimal management strategies. The reason for this stems from the fact that companies must be looked upon as individual nations that require specific direction based upon diverse variables. When assessing this notion as it relates to the films "Twelve Angry Men" and "Wall Street," the writer discusses different approaches each movie utilizes to gain much the same outcome.

    (8 pp) The complexities of modern society have combined to generate a variety of threats to business organizations, information networks, military installations, government operations, and individuals.

That means there are structural risks. Structural risks require structural security. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

As such, employing the concept within the classroom provides for a much more effective management outcome. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Development of Digital Rights Management

    A 12 page paper discussing the present state of development of this technology. Digital Rights Management (DRM) is a proactive approach to protecting intellectual property that exists in digital – i.e., downloadable – form. National and international copyright protection has been found not to be enough to protect the rights of those owning rights to intellectual property. The entertainment and software industries particularly have been adversely affected by individuals’ abilities to appropriate content for their own use (or worse, for sale to others) without paying developers or providers for the benefit they receive from the products.

    11 pages in length. With two-thirds of the American adult population overweight and just over thirty percent of them considered obese, there is no question as to the critical nature of weight management in the United States today. The influencing factors - which are mildly persuasive for some and wholly overwhelming for others – run the gamut from a thin-crazed culture to nutritionally-void fast food to an altogether uneducated society when it comes to eating a healthy diet. People have reached the point of being utterly confused and frustrated when it comes to making informed nutritional decisions, given the fact that they have been spoon-fed conflicting – albeit well-meaning – advice from myriad sources that keeps them in a perpetual state of obesity. Far too many people never gain the upper hand on their weight problem, with about 300,000 ultimately succumbing to the fatal aspects of unhealthy dietary habits and physical inactivity inherent to obesity.

  • The Impact of Airport Security Measures on Management Operations

    7 pages in length. The extent to which the airport industry environment is different now than prior to September 11, 2001 illustrates the significant lengths to which the nation's security system has been augmented. This vast development in the wake of America's worst terrorist attack in history is, however, said to be just as inefficient and incapable of averting another 911 episode as what existed before the fateful day; that the airport industry has strategically bolstered itself has made all personnel more keenly aware of the potential for a repeat performance, yet the ultimate performance of these presidential instituted mandates and the Transportation Security Administration role continues to leave gapping holes in the overall objective toward national protection. On a smaller scale, however, advancement is being made in certain areas where tremendous sweeps are not expected to occur – such as onboard – where a smaller cluster of people is able to make a bigger, more immediately visible and overall impact. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • Organizations and Currency Risk Management

    A 10 page paper discussing the external and internal need for managing the currency risk that organizations increasingly deal with as globalization continues to increase. The trend brings with it the need to equalize business results based on widely varying changes in world currencies.

Because currency values are never static but can be depended on to regularly change in exchange value, organizations must devise measures that minimize the effects of that currency exchange rate movement. The paper provides several corporate examples, including Caterpillar, Merck, Honeywell and Dow Chemical. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

GM already has accomplished this once, and recently. If it would, it could apply the lessons learned through Saturn to the whole of the GM organization. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Corporate Management Sector and Women

    6 pages in length. A lot has changed in the last one hundred years in relation to women's roles in the workplace. To be sure, one would never find a female CEO at the turn of the century, nor would one be accustomed to seeing women in many executive positions at all. However, contemporary times have illustrated how women have been successful in their attempts to break through the barriers of a patriarchal work society and effectively plant themselves in the midst of prosperity. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Human Resources Management Information Systems

    A 13 page paper discussing the growing importance of human resources information systems (HRIS). Management of human resources has expanded far beyond the old recordkeeping responsibilities.

  • Army Personnel Management Policy Differences Between Civilian and Active Members

    A 10 page paper discussing how contractual members of the armed forces are managed differently than are civilian personnel. From most outward appearances, civilian personnel management bears very little difference from that of any other large US employer; contractual members of the armed forces are managed in very different ways, but for very good reasons. It is discipline and respect that comprise the two prime characteristics of daily military operation, but they also are primary in times of crisis. Contractual members of the armed forces may look with either envy or disdain at the “nicer” treatment civilian personnel receive, but as General Colin Powell illustrates, their commanding officers are charged with teaching them there is a reason for everything that happens. They could be in combat; the civilians never will be. Bibliography lists 13 sources.

  • Nursing Personnel Performance Appraisals

    A 12 page paper discussing enhancing objectivity in performance appraisals of nurses. The performance review process is recognized to be necessary, but it seems that relatively few individuals or organizations are satisfied that employee appraisal is complete, objective, ethical and positively contributes to better financial management within the organization. Many organizations continually seek to improve the process by which they evaluate their employees’ performance. Particularly in nursing where ongoing shortage of nurses continues, healthcare organizations want to ensure that their nurses view their current positions as beneficial to both the nurse and the organization. Greater objectivity and definite career development goals can assist nurses and their employers in achieving this goal. Bibliography lists 14 sources.

  • Workplace and Humor

    A 9 page paper. The premise that humor and fun make a more productive workplace and a more motivated workforce seems logical. Many agree with the premise and the few studies that have been conducted support this premise. But, for as much as is written about humor and work, little empirical evidence exists. This paper discusses the benefits of humor, the use of humor as a management tool and the problems managers need to be aware of, such as sexual harassment. The writer also reports how male and female managers are perceived by subordinates in terms of the use of positive and negative humor. The writer also comments on the possible underlying hostility expressed in humor. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Literature Review on Empowerment and Leadership

    21 pages in length. To define the concept of leadership is like trying to describe the myriad shades of white available in a painter's palette: There are so many similar yet unique components to this color that there can be no singular description. Instead, leadership is comprised of a vast and expansive cornucopia of adjectives and edicts and theories that serve to outline the way in which to be effective in a management position. While book knowledge is the foundation of most learning curves, application is something quite different, especially when it comes to possessing leadership qualities; providing a list of characteristics outlining an effective leader is one thing, however, to actually have someone successfully put them to use – as well as incorporate innate abilities to manage that often cannot be taught – is the true challenge. Bibliography lists 20 sources.

  • Progress as Defined by American History from 1867 until 1909

    (5 pp) In the last portion of the nineteenth century Americans progressed at an uneven gait. In the West, men took giant steps across the country as they explored and claimed land; often walking over others such as the Native Peoples in the process. These same men "brought their" women with them through incredible difficulties, but then saw no reason to give them any political allowances. Children were "owned" as much as women were. Racial differences, although somewhat equal on paper made little progress. In the East labor and management systems, political patronage, and social reform began to demand attention, and progressive attention.

This is illustrated with an in-depth case study. British Airways has a record of poor employee relations and a history of numbers industrial disputes.

The bibliography cites 18 sources.

Bibliography lists 1 source.

  • Nursing Need to Delegate

    A 3 page research paper that discusses the need for RNs to delegate tasks to unlicensed assistive personnel. While unlicensed assistive personnel (UAPs) are available in a number of clinical environments, overworked and harried registered nurses (RNs) will frequently fail to take full advantage of the capabilities of UAPs by not delegating tasks. Buerhaus, et al (2002) point out that nursing education should include instruction in delegation as part of clinical management precisely so that nurses will become more comfortable with this skill. The ability to delegate effectively is needed in order to oversee the non-RN nursing workforce that will inevitably be required in order to maintain sufficient level so patient care (Buerhaus, et al, 2002). Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Nursing Competency and the Use of Technology

    An 8 page discussion of the need for technological competence in nursing. This paper asserts that utilizing technology to optimize patient outcome is directly dependent on a nurse’s competence with that particular technology. Because technology is changing on a daily basis in the medical environment, nursing competency is an ever evolving phenomena. The problem which exists, therefore, in insuring nursing competency revolves around insuring both adequate training and provisions to provide the proper management format and accountability which is necessary to insure that nurses continually perform their duties in the most competent and constructive manner. The establishment of well designed quality assurance/quality improvement models and clinical pathways are critical components of this task. A 1/2 page Roman Numeral outline is included.

  • Nurse Educator Shortages and Alternatives

    An 11 page paper discussing the shortage of nurse educators and offering alternatives for alleviating this shortage that exacerbates the larger nursing shortage.

Nearly 33,000 qualified applicants were turned away from four-year and graduate programs in 2004 because of the shortage of educators, almost 4,000 of those were applying to graduate school and could have become educators themselves. The paper suggests opening additional graduate school spaces; develop creative means of recruiting graduate students; improving the image of nursing and its working conditions; recruiting non-nurses to teach courses such as process flow and management; and enlisting the aid of private insurers that recognize the financial benefits of greater numbers of nurses. Bibliography lists 11 sources.

  • Nurse Educator's Involvement in International Normalized Ratio Stability

    This 5 page report discusses the international normalized ratio or INR and how a nurse educator’s efforts can assure that INR stability is maintained on a more consistent basis. There are a number of indications for oral anticoagulation therapy, most having to do with the use of mechanical devices to maintain a patient’s cardiac functioning. Therefore, it is essential that it be maintained on a consistent basis and without wide variances in overall INR. Because the INR concept is one that is directly related to how caregivers make determinations of the next option in a patient’s care, the efficacy of management by a nurse educator cannot truly be questioned. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • HIV Positive Nurses Should Still Be Allowed to Work

    4 pages in length. Key to the "prevention and management of HIV transmission in healthcare settings" (Campbell, 2004, p. 33) is clear and factual understanding of how the disease is passed and to conquer unfounded, erroneous beliefs that fuel the fear of HIV-positive nurses being a threat to patients and other health care workers. Research clearly supports the reality of the situation: While the risk of transmitting HIV depends upon "health personnel practices, the prevalence of the illness, and the frequency of exposure" (Campbell, 2004, p. 33), the fact remains it is too low a risk to disallow HIV-positive nurses to continue working. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Angina Pectoris From a Nursing Perspective

    An 11 page paper discussing angina from a nursing perspective. Angina pectoris can be regarded as an 'early warning system' heralding cardiovascular disease, but it also is a condition that itself needs to be managed. Treated angina results in far fewer occurrences of myocardial infarction (MI) than untreated angina. Patients know that the possibility of MI is great after they are diagnosed with angina, and nurse-led care programs are highly effective in providing quality patient education as well as alleviating patients' fears. This paper reviews the condition and discusses nurse-led management of it. Includes a 3-page outline and an abstract. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Expansion of Paper on Nursing Delegation and Shared Governance

    A 14 page expansion of a 4-page paper by the same name. The health care facility that maintains a shared governance model is able to make greater use of all the resources available to it. Typically, each patient care department of a facility such as this has a nurse manager who serves as a facilitator in unit governance and as a liaison between direct-care nursing staff and nursing administrators. This organizational structure is more conducive to true shared governance than hierarchical straight-line organizational structures that have the effect of insulating administrators from those providing direct patient care. It also ensures that those having the greatest degree of direct patient contact have a voice in establishing policy for both the present and the future. The paper discusses shared governance more as a philosophical approach to management than as a “how to.” Bibliography lists 11 sources.

The Website of the Health Psychology Associates (http://www.healthpsych.com/) addresses issues related to the research, treatments and role of health psychologists in the health care setting. One area of particular concern for health psychology is smoking. Essentially, health psychologists are concerned with the psychological and biomedical reasons for why people are addicted to smoking and have difficulty stopping and what treatment programs can be initiated to help people stop smoking. Research has found that people begin and continue smoking from a combination of social, psychological, and biological factors. In smoking cessation therapies health psychologists have found that a combination of psychological, social and biological factors are also the most effective in that patients are instructed on the use of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) in addition to the more important aspects of personal and social counseling, coping strategies, skill management and stress reduction throughout the stages of contemplation of smoking cessation through until well after action and maintenance of smoking cessation. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Cordery's "Another Case Of The Emperor's New Clothes"

    5 pages in length. Is organizational teamwork as beneficial to production and the overall bottom line as theorists declare them to be? John Cordery responds to this inquiry with a mixture of personal and realistic contention in his article entitled "Another Case of the Emperors New Clothes" published by a 2004 issue of the Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology. While the author does indeed hit upon a few issues that leave management theorists hard-pressed to support the holistic value of teamwork within the organizational venue, Cordery (2004) also offers up some interesting perspectives whereby readers ponder which, if any, past organizational theories have ever embraced the fundamental principles necessary for empowering and motivating workers to perform at their most efficient level.

Quantitative research involving large scale surveys and methods of accumulating cost and performance data in the annual process of health care management is traditionally the most widely used research method and provides for relatively large-scale low-cost studies. However, in today’s environment in which health care has become patient-centered and indicators in health care are based on quality assurance and quality improvement, qualitative research methods are now the preferred measure of effectiveness of health care, most notably in the area of nursing practice. Qualitative studies in nursing practice which involve subjective and interactive interviews and assessments include not only those involved with direct patient contact but patient perception as well. Patient satisfaction and perception has become essential to the determination of areas of concern in the health care system and allow for immediate action in improvement in nursing care. Qualitative research which also involves nursing input and interactive discussions also gives the nursing staff opportunity to comment on the impact of changes within the organization; an interaction which in itself has shown directly impacts and improves nursing practice. Despite the need for large-scale quantitative reporting, qualitative research methods are not only preferred in regards to quality improvement but also provide direct, subjective and immediate opportunities for improving nursing practice and patient care.

  • Are Physicians' Professionalism Sacrificing Humanity?

    6 pages in length. One would automatically surmise that those who enter into the medical field as a doctor would understand the inherent connection between mind and body health. Patch Adams did, yet his approach to the practice of medicine was anything but conventional. Adams refused to sacrifice his humanity for the profession he had come to respect and enjoy, partly because he believed he had a great deal of healing to offer, as well as the fact that he saw a significant amount of non-medicinal oversight within the business of mental and physical restoration. Why was Adams’ desire to inspire happiness and frivolity looked upon so disdainfully by his medical associates? Because the unique individual who was Patch Adams was insightful enough to look well beyond the finite concept of traditional medicine as a means by which to treat illness; rather, his wholehearted contention was that people can help themselves become well if their mental outlook was more favorable. The writer discusses how it became Adams’ mission as a doctor to touch each patient at a personal level in order to stimulate healing from within, effectively restoring humanity to the medical profession.

  • Legal Process of England ish Legal Process: Entertainers, Drugs And Insurance

    6 pages in length. Venus, a famous pop star, applied for 10 million pounds of life insurance to MegaLife, an insurance company; as expected, the insurance company was anxious to know whether Venus was on drugs. Slick, an employee of MegaLife, telephoned Orbit's contracted Dr. Irvine Kiljoy, whose job it is to keep an eye on the health of such pop stars as Venus who are signed up with the Orbit label. Slick deceitfully told Dr. Kiljoy that Venus had consented to his supplying MegLife with information about herself, which Dr. Kiljoy believed because Venus had that very morning left the following message on his answer phone: "Kiljoy, I want you to write a report for me; it is not about my health, it is a personal business matter." Unknown to Kiljoy was the fact that this was a reference to litigation Venus was planning against a restaurant where she had been served salmonella laced soup whilst on tour promoting her latest hit single "Heavenly Body." Based upon this misunderstanding, Dr. Kiljoy told Slick all about Venus' long-standing battle with cocaine addiction; on the basis of this information, MegaLife refused Venus life insurance. When Venus learned why her life insurance application failed, she instigates tort proceedings against the doctor for breach of statutory duty. Bibliography lists 5 sources.
