middle-range theory

middle-range theory

A phenomenon is the term used to describe a perception or responses to an event. Examples of phenomena in nursing include caring and responses to stress. Assumptions are the ideas that we take for granted. They explain the nature of the concepts in the theory, giving it structure.

Choose a middle-range theory or grand theory that, in your opinion, can be applied to research.

  • What is the phenomenon of concern in this theory?
  • What are the assumptions underpinning this theory?

psychopharmacology

Many studies have found that psychotherapy is as effective as psychopharmacology in terms of influencing changes in behaviors. Symptoms of anxiety. And changes in mental state. Changes influenced by psychopharmacology can be explained by the biological basis of treatments. But how does psychotherapy achieve these changes? Does psychotherapy share common neuronal pathways with psychopharmacology?

Psychotherapy is used with individuals as well as in groups or families. The idea of discussing confidential information with a patient in front of an audience is probably quite foreign to you. However, in group and family therapy, this is precisely what the psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner does. In your role, learning how to provide this type of therapy within the limits of confidentiality is essential.

For this Discussion, you will consider whether psychotherapy also has a biological basis. And analyze the ways in which legal. And ethical considerations differ in the individual, family, and group therapy settings.

To prepare:

  • Review this week’s Learning Resources. Reflecting on foundational concepts of psychotherapy. Biological and social impacts on psychotherapy. And legal and ethical issues across the modalities (individual, family, and group).
  • Search the Walden Library databases for scholarly. Peer-reviewed articles that inform and support your academic perspective on these topics.

Post an explanation of whether psychotherapy has a biological basis. Explain how culture, religion. And socioeconomics might influence one’s perspective on the value of psychotherapy treatments. Describe how legal and ethical considerations for group. And family therapy differ from those for individual therapy. And explain how these differences might impact your therapeutic approaches for clients in group, individual, and family therapy. Support your rationale with at least three peer-reviewed. Evidence-based sources. And explain why each of your supporting sources is considered scholarly. Attach the PDFs of your sources.

the American Association of Colleges of Nursing

Sosa,

The Doctor in Nursing Practice (DNP) project is the culmination of a terminal degree. Unlike other professions, a doctoral degree for nurses has evolved into a more standardized curriculum and rigor in the past 20 years. According to the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, DNP projects should be an assignment that impacts health care changes (Tsai et al., 2017).  Measuring the success of the practicum project needs to be directly connected to the probability of improving patient outcomes. A sustainable set of interventions that can be implemented in the practicum site after completing the project, with buying from the stakeholders, will be another measure of success.

A defined schedule with timeframes and deadlines is a great way to ensure meeting set goals. Staying on track could be challenging, and it is one of the ways faculty can support the students.  Keeping the original scope in mind will allow the project to succeed. Collaboration with other students could potentially help to accomplish better results (Eaton et al., 2017)
Creating a policy is a legal way to hold team members accountable for the continuation of the work started by the DNP scholar. An essential factor discussed in a publication this year 2021 stresses the need to create a strong relationship between the faculty supporting the capstone and the DNP student (Morris et al., 2021).

Roots of Organizational Policy

Assignment #4: Roots of Organizational Policy (20 points)

IMPORTANT:  No late submissions after the final day of class will be allowed for the final assignment, as final course grades are due within 72 hours of the due date. Students who fail to submit will earn a 0%.

The Comprehensive Final Project (Assignment #4) has been designed for the student to identify federa. And state policy roots in a specific health services organization. Each student will select a specific management area for a specific organization. The student will identify a health services setting. Where they have access to the policy manual (or a sample policy manual). The setting may include a single location. Or an organization with many types of services and many service delivery settings. Select one of the following health management areas where you will map out and describe four (4) organizational policies (four separate policies, or MAJOR parts of a comprehensive policy – for example, HR Policy covering all aspects of HR in the organization) linked to federal or state legislative mandates:

  • Facilities Planning and Maintenance
  • Occupational Health & Safety
  • Prevention Programs for Health Disparities
  • Payment Processing and Billing
  • Human Resources
  • Health Information Technology and EMR
  • Pharmacy Services
  • Laboratory Services
  • Supply Chain Medical Equipment/Technology
  • Patient/Customer and Community Relations
  • Strategic Planning and New Service Development
  • Advertising or Marketing
  • Internal Quality Control
  • Direct Patient Care

    In Week Six, you needed to submit a topic area and associated health services organization in the Assignment Four Topic Selection folder in LEO. Note that the same topic area/organization cannot be used by any two students. Unless the professor reaches out to you directly, your chosen topic is approved.

    Prepare a PowerPoint presentation with no more than 18 content slides (students may utilize the Notes feature to provide additional context, if needed). A cover and reference slide must be provided (these do not count towards the maximum slides). Draw on what you have learned throughout the class to provide: a summary of each organizational policy. The federal/state legislative roots for each policy (by name and statute), any pending changes to the federal/state legislation, and your suggested performance metrics. How should the organizational monitor or gauge success of the policy.

  • Note:  the four policies you choose should address, either directly or indirectly, four federal or state legislation, or four aspects/provisions of one overall federal or state legislation
    A good approach to the final project would be to allocate four slides to each of the four policies. Each slide addressing one of the four bold topics above for each policy. For example, title slide, introduction slide. Then four slides on policy one (one slide for each of the bolded topics above), four slides on policy two…… etc.…. conclusion slide and then a resources slide.

Discussion 09.1: Analysis of Variance (ANOVA)

 

For this discussion forum, refer to the Excel file Discussion 8-1 Data Set that contains information on the following:

In the healthcare profession, you will be presented with ANOVA tables using different forms of technology (i.e. SPSS, Minitab, Excel, SAS, etc.). An important part of the analysis is to take the results from the ANOVA and make the proper inferences from it.

1.Identify the worksheet (tab) that matches the first letter of your LAST name (i.e., if your last name were “Fudd” you would use the data from the “F” tab). This will be the source data you will use to answer your remaining questions for this initial post.

2.From your ANOVA table: What is the test statistic?

3.From your ANOVA table: What is the p-value?

4.Assuming a level of significance at 0.05, would you reject or fail to reject your null hypothesis? Explain how you came to this conclusion (i.e., either use the test-statistic/critical value or p-value to support your claim).
