Phase 3 - Individual Project

Lately, there has been an increase in patients being diagnosed with chronic debilitating diseases here at the healthcare facility, and I believe that Senior Management, Departments Heads, Supervisors, and Stakeholders should come together and discuss a few topics concerning chronic diseases and the aging population. The crisis is clear. Chronic diseases are having a major impact on healthcare. Chronic conditions, unlike acute diseases, cannot be cured and can last for years, limit activitis, and require continuing medical attention. In the United States, chronic illnesses impact millions of people and are the leading cause of sickness, disability, and death. As more and more people age and develop chronic illnesses the number of doctors and nurses needed will go up. Therefore, the availability of well-trained doctors and nurses is imperative in order to provide the best possible care. By communicating and collaborating with doctors, nurses, and the community to treat patients and their illnesses we can possibly cut costs, make programs for patients more readily available, and help the patient improve their overall health. In preparation for this meeting I researched Alzheimer’s disease which is a major issue affecting the aging population. Alzheimer's disease, first described by the German neurologist Alois Alzheimer, is a physical disease that affects the brain. No one knows what causes it. However, some scientists believe that it may be a combination of several genetic and environmental elements that starts nerve cells in the brain to deteriorate. It is a progressive disease, that over time, parts of the brain will become damaged. When this starts to occur, the signs become more severe. Some of the signs of this disease…...

Individual Project 1

... Individual Project 1 Kevin Hensley AIU Online PHIL201 July 25, 2013 Earl Barnett Individual Project 1 Over the years, I have asked myself many questions about life, its meaning and where I will or want to go in life. Many I have answered, and many which I have no answers to just more questions. In this paper I will try to express the times I have asked questions and come to what I feel are reasonable answers. Metaphysics When I was young, my Grandfather died quite unexpectedly. The night after the funeral I was lying in bed with my back facing the door to my room. I heard my Grandfather’s voice calling my name. When I rolled over, he was standing there in my room. He said, “Kevie, you be good and take care of your mother.” And then he was gone. After many more experiences of this kind, I have come to the conclusion a person’s soul does go on after death. How this is possible, however, I have not yet come to a reasonable conclusion other than our bodies are merely a vessel we use for time. Epistemology My daughter once asked me, “Dad, how do you know so much?” This question, for some reason, made me stop and think for a moment. How did I know or have the knowledge of the things I spoke of or acted upon? The conclusion I came to was I had the knowledge through several ways. Some knowledge was gained by life experience, while another bit of knowledge was gained by a teaching of some sort. My Grandfather teaching me about engines and how to work on them is an......

Individual Wellness Project

...Individual Wellness Change Project The client I selected for this project is a 70 year old female. This client resides in a household with her husband, and adult son. Retirement has not equated with rest and relaxation for my client as she also takes care of two of her adult brothers in poor health. Three granddaughters have been the source of joy for her as they’ve grown from precious infants to teenagers. My client also assumes the role of family matriarch for her other nine siblings. With many demands for time and attention, I predicted the needs assessments to direct us towards stress management. The results we received sent out project in another direction. With my initial prediction of the focus needed being on stress management, I had my client complete the Holmes and Rahe Stress Scale (Holmes and Rahe, n.d.) first. In spite of numerous responsibilities and various family members always seeking advice, her score was only a 16. Scores below 150 represent only a slight risk of illness due to stress. The one area where stress does affect my client is in her sleeping habits. Many nights she experiences insomnia while contemplating current family situations, and consequentially suffers from fatigue. My client’s concern over taking care of everyone else leaves little time for her to focus on herself. The remainder of our assessments helped to point out what she already knew about her nutrition and physical activity levels. The results of the LiveWell......

Phase 4 Individual Project, Ethics in the Business Environment Hope Green Colorado Technical University Professor Sweet MGM365-1401B-01 Phase 4 Individual Project, Ethics in the Business Environment Morals and Values Good morals and values are things that we should have in regards to not only our personal life and the way we act and treat people, but also in regards to our business life and how we treat both coworkers and customers. Values are the actual beliefs that we live by in our lives such as do unto others as you would have done unto you. Morals are the values that we believe in that can usually be attributed to an external place of learning them such as one’s religion or the society they live in. It is our morals that help us to determine the difference between right from wrong and choose to do the right thing (Career Education Corporation, 2010). Code of Conduct Plan Having a code of conduct plan in place for any business is crucial to its survival. If there is not a plan in place, some employees may not know how to act in certain situations and they may do something that could really hurt the business. Proper behavior cannot be expected unless leaders tell the population what they expect and how proper behavior is supposed to look (Editorial Board, 2012). Doing Business Abroad One thing to think about when doing business overseas is the U.S. Department of State. The U.S. Department of State is instrumental in issuing Apostilles and Certificates of......

Individual Project 2

...Individual Project 2 English 206 Laquita Easter 5/8/11 The Cosby Show was a great show for African Americans in the early 80’s. I love one particular character from the show it was “Clif Huxtable” played by comedian Bill Cosby. The show most people thought it was not “real” enough. The reason most people will think this is because of “Cosby” family life on the show. Cliff and his wife Claire Huxtable were very successful, educated people. Cliff was a doctor and his wife was a successful lawyer. The two raised 5 children who needed much guidance and advice as any children would. The show was very interesting and funny but was the joke on how the whole series was played out? I don’t believe so, that made me adore and look up to Cliff Huxtable. He was fair, down to earth, and made his fatherly love & support for his children to broaden and make them choose for themselves. Bill Cosby character was the father of all fathers; he supported his wife and watch football on Sunday nights. He was still the all American dad, in one if my favorite episodes, it was when Theo wanted to stay out later. Theo: Dad, will it be too much to ask if U stay 30 minutes after curfew? Cliff: Well, Theo if I let you stay 30 minutes after your curfew, then you may ask for an increase in your allowance, and then you’ll want to borrow the car. Theo: Okay Dad, would a “no Theo” be too much to ask? I loved that episode and even use some of Cliff’s parenting when dealing with my own children......

This will be within company’s policy. If the project required additional investment in land and building, how would this affect your decision?

Unit 5 Individual Project

...6/15/16 Unit 5 – Individual Project The Department of Homeland Security is one of the most important departments in our federal government. It is largely responsible for ensuring that the United States as a country is kept safe from harm, whether through natural or terrorist events. However, even a department as large as the DHS is unable to fully protect the homeland from every threat possible. There is no way to always cover every avenue for potential threat to the U.S. To combat this unfortunate reality, the DHS relies on help from private enterprise. The DHS includes an office, known as the Office of Policy, which includes the Private Sector Office as one of its sub-departments. The Private Sector Office provides the Secretary and Department leaders with advice on issues relevant to the private sector, including academia, non-profits, NGOs, and businesses (dhs.gov). In addition, the PSO helps create and foster strategic communications with the private sector to enhance the primary mission of the Department to protect the American homeland (dhs.gov). This paper will explain the involvement of the Department of Homeland Security with private enterprise via the PSO, explain why this involvement is crucial to the mission, and explain how the DHS uses private enterprise in the protection of critical infrastructure and key resources. This paper will also give examples of programs that address governments on all levels, private enterprises, or individuals in the DHS mission...

Individual Project

...Individual Project Since childhood I have been fond of scents. Perfumes fascinate me, how one scent sets a personality and gives each person their own distinct smell. I truly wish to be a perfumist one day. The career I believe I will most likely have in the forthcoming future will be the owner of a small perfume and cosmetics business. The idea of the business is to let the customers pick their own scents and mix and match with other preferable aromas, therefore creating unique perfumes for themselves. Section 1: The leadership requirements for a business owner would be being able to balance micro and macro management. The skills that are required are sales experience and customer service. In order to please the customer one has to have sufficient knowledge in engaging with customers. Once you are able to engage enough with your customers you can build trust and after you have built trust, your sales will reach heights. Section 2: Strengths that my leadership would have, would be the balance between micro and macro management. Such as time, inventory and schedule. The weakness would be the atmosphere, how the upper management controls the staff. Sales quota not being reached is also a weakness. To over come the weakness, many different methods would be used such as incentives that would come out from the profit of the inventory sold. Section 3: Career is a lifelong relationship and to me a career holds the ability...
