Discuss nursing’s role and responsibility in affecting this change.

The healthcare industry, as we know it, is undergoing massive change. Concerns, questions and issues are on the rise since the Affordable Care Act was fully instituted in 2014. Many forces are driving this apprehension and uncertainty. Social and demographic factors are ever present. The demographics of vulnerable populations are shifting and this is presenting our healthcare delivery system with many challenges. Workforce issues will need to engage an increased number of educated and experienced healthcare personnel to care for the rising number of patients now covered by the ACA. Political forces, driven by regulatory agencies, have a direct impact on access, cost and quality of the healthcare care provided. Healthcare affordability, accessibility and cost containment are also influenced by economic forces as well. Technological and informational forces are still in their preliminary stages and have an important role in transforming healthcare as we know it. Globalization and ensuing ecological forces requires aspects of all forces of change be taken into account. These forces reinforce the need to understand cultural issues and result in concerns for newly discovered diseases, population growth and the effects of disasters of all types (natural, bioterrorism, etc). And finally, anthro-cultural force explains how society has obtained its own philosophies, principles and customs based on past understanding of the establishment of healthcare (Shi & Singh, 2015, p. 544). The past history of healthcare decision-making will have a definitive effect on the success of the future of the ACA. As changes occur within this new infrastructure, the nursing profession is expected to change as well. The profession of nursing needs to understand the impacts these forces and the ACA will have on the future of the U.S. healthcare delivery system of the future.

Choose one force of change (as mentioned in the Instructor’s Commentary). Provide your opinion of whether aspects of the ACA can be positively or negatively driven by force. Analyze the effect this force can have on changing healthcare as we know it today. Discuss nursing’s role and responsibility in affecting this change.

Describe the diagnosis and staging of cancer.

1. Describe the diagnosis and staging of cancer.

2. Describe at least three complications of cancer, the side effects of treatment, and methods to lessen physical and psychological effects.

3. Discuss what factors contribute to the yearly incidence and mortality rates of various cancers in Americans.

4. Explain how the American Cancer Society (ACS) might provide education and support. What ACS services would you recommend and why?

5. Explain how the nursing process is utilized to provide safe and effective care for cancer patients across the life span. Your explanation should include each of the five phases and demonstrate the delivery of holistic and patient-focused care.

Consider mathematics, social and physical sciences, and science studies as an interdisciplinary research area.

Why do people dislike going to the dentist?

Dr. Beckett’s Dental Office Case

1- Which of the seven elements of the Services Marketing Mix are addressed in this case? Give examples of each “P” you identify?

2- Why do people dislike going to the dentist? Do you feel Dr. Beckett has addressed this problem effectively?

3- How do Dr. Beckett and her staff educate patients about the service they are receiving ? What else could they do?

4- What supplementary services are offered? How do they enhance service delivery ?

5- Contrast your own dental care experiences with those offered by Dr. Beckett’s practice. What differences do you see? Based on your review of this case, what advice would you give (a) to your current or former dentist, and (b) to Dr. Beckett?

Discuss The Impacts of Nursing Informatics on Patient Outcomes and Patient Care Efficiencies.

The Impact of Nursing Informatics on Patient Outcomes and Patient Care Efficiencies
In the Discussion for this module, you considered the interaction of nurse informaticists with other specialists to ensure successful care. How is that success determined?

Patient outcomes and the fulfillment of care goals is one of the major ways that healthcare success is measured. Measuring patient outcomes results in the generation of data that can be used to improve results. Nursing informatics can have a significant part in this process and can help to improve outcomes by improving processes, identifying at-risk patients, and enhancing efficiency.

To Prepare:

Review the concepts of technology application as presented in the Resources.
Reflect on how emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence may help fortify nursing informatics as a specialty by leading to increased impact on patient outcomes or patient care efficiencies.
The Assignment: (4-5 pages)

In a 4- to 5-page project proposal written to the leadership of your healthcare organization, propose a nursing informatics project for your organization that you advocate to improve patient outcomes or patient-care efficiency. Your project proposal should include the following:

Describe the project you propose.
Identify the stakeholders impacted by this project.
Explain the patient outcome(s) or patient-care efficiencies this project is aimed at improving and explain how this improvement would occur. Be specific and provide examples.
Identify the technologies required to implement this project and explain why.
