PPD – Alison Cox
I have completed the level 3 Health and social care 90 credit diploma and now continuing onto the 2nd year of the 90 credit extended diploma. I have gained a lot of experience in a various amount of health and social care settings, where I have been on placement within the 1st year. The placements I have been on vary from being on a children’s ward, to a pre-school and a day centre with learning difficulties and elderly with dementia. I have gained knowledge on the topics I have studied and have developed a lot from them including communication and problem solving. The skills I have developed throughout my placements are communicating with others in the workplace including the staff and service users, I also feel that I have plenty of experience caring and looking after young children from my placements and at home.
From experiences I feel I have good initiative and can make quick decisions when needed to do so. I feel that I have the respect to support the patients and the surrounding family and make sure that their beliefs and what their values are taken into consideration. I also feel that I have the maturity to deal with difficult situations when put into my hands due to being on placement and having a part time job as a bar tender, where sometimes you need these skills and knowledge to deal with situations when things get difficult in the workplace and you can come across challenging individuals. As having a lot of young children in my family this has reinforced my passion for working with young children, also nursing is a life-long learning career, I enjoy learning new things and this is why I would like to get into this profession.
I am a caring person and the influences of my part time job as being a bar tender I find it easier to interact with new people, I think this is an important quality as working in any care profession you meet…...

The nine dimensions of organization are leadership, direction, accountability, coordination and control, innovation, external orientation, capability, motivation, and work environment and values. 6 7 We had such information for 101 of the companies, which allowed us to analyze 58,240 employee evaluations. In addition to undertaking these analyses, we joined with the Amazone Euro Fund to conduct a study on the financial performance of the 89 European public companies with the greatest gender diversity in top posts.

Unvaccinated Children: Should They Be Allowed Public Schools

...leader John Robertson states, "This shouldn't be about the alternative wishes of parents who choose to ignore the advice of doctor, it has to be about the health of our children and young people. Parents who choose not to vaccinate aren't just putting their own children at risk, they are putting other people's innocent children at risk of preventable diseases as well." (AAP, 2013). Children who are unvaccinated contribute to a detrimental immunity in society’s herd, thereby putting even vaccinated children at risk because without controlling a virus it grows and becomes stronger. At times this can even means a disease becoming immune to its own vaccination. An expert in the subject of unvaccinated children in schools, nursing researcher Dr. Alison M. Buttenheim, stated in the American Journal of Public Health that, “They protect us from diseases that used to routinely kill hundreds of thousands of children in the United States and still kill hundreds of thousands globally. It's not just important for a child to be vaccinated, it's important at a population level to have high rates of coverage." (Glynn, 2012). In this way Dr. Buttenheim better explains that preventing outbreaks in the community is only achievable through a high vaccination rate in society as a whole, rather than individual immunizations. Problem #2 This herd immunity does not only apply to children, however, but to adults as well. In this case it specifically applies to any and all adults that would......

Cox Case

...cable industry. Equity analysts are divided into two categories, the buy-side and the sell-side and their main task is to compile financial information of companies along with market information and consult their clients about their investment options. Martin wanted to prove that the stock price of Cox was undervalued because the company was not operating in its full capacity. Martin called the 102 MHz of unused capacity the ‘stealth tier’ as the potential revenue streams from its usage were invisible but not valueless. In order to prove her point Martin used 3 methods: the EBITDA multiple analysis, Discounted Cash flow analysis, and real options Valuation analysis. The main assumptions used for all three methods are; that the revenue growth of the company would accelerate and diversify in the period 1998-2003, that the capital spending would also slow and the nature of investments would change, and that the digital revenue streams would yield higher returns on invested capital. With each analysis Martin tried to forecast the value of Cox stock in the year 2000 by making certain assumptions. With EBITDA multiple analysis and target price of $50, the market capitalization of Cox is increased which in turn increases the implied Cable value, and an EBITDA multiplier of 20.9 times is realized. Because Martin believes that the EBITDA multiplier is a method which merely reflects the past, she continues her analysis using the Discounted Cash Flow Model. The DCF uses the present......

In this case study, the main problems would be the culture, structure and the strategy for change. To enable us to have a better understanding of these problems we would need more information on the factors that is making the organisation resistant to change, besides the single personnel mentioned. Also a more detailed organisational structure of the organisation, and the current culture of Cox. Analysis Lets begin this section with the first problem that I have identified above which is the culture of the firm. Organisational culture affects not only task issues – how well or badly an organisation performs – but also emotional issues – how workers feel about their work and their companies (Huczynski & Buchanan, 2013). This makes culture important with regards to this change as culture influences the organisational effectiveness and provides direction for the company amongst other things. From the case study, the ownership and control of Cox has remained in hands of the Cox family and most of the employees have been with the firm for more than 10 years. Therefore the culture of the firm would be strong and......

...MBA 513A ORGANIZATIONAL BEHAVIOR & HR MANAGEMENT FINAL EXAM Sadek Ahmed ID 10000121777 Answer no :1 Socialization is broadly defined as “a process in which an individual acquires the attitudes, behaviors and knowledge needed to successfully participate as an organizational member.” Socialization is an ongoing process that sometimes lasts for a year. It represents a sense-making process that helps new hires adapt, form work relationships and find their place in the organization. A typical socialization process includes three phases: 1. Anticipatory socialization: This stage occurs before new hires join the organization. Through interacting with representatives of the company (e.g., recruiters, managers), new hires develop expectations about the company and the job prior to organizational entry. 2. Encounter: When new employees begin a new job, they start to learn about job tasks and receive training. Managers can exert their influence by helping new employees understand their roles and duties. Also, by understanding the stresses and issues that newcomers experience, managers can help cultivate a high-quality work relationship with newcomers. 3. Settling in: New employees begin to feel comfortable with their job demands and social relationships. They will be interested in the company’s evaluation of their performance and in learning about potential career opportunities within the......

Post Partum Depression

...thoughts or gestures can occur along with delirium and mania (Bennett & Indman). 2.1 RISK FACTORS FOR POSTPARTUM DEPRESSION. Several risk factors have been associated with the development of postpartum depression. The knowledge of these risk factors is important in that it allows for early identification of women who might be at risk and in need of early intervention to starve off the ugly consequences of PPD. A prior depressive episode is one of the most significant factors. Over 50% of women who suffer PPD have been depressed during pregnancy or earlier in life (Gaschler, 2008). Other significant risk factors include but not limited to severe pre-menstrual syndrome, substance abuse, unwanted pregnancy, prematurity and other infant health problems, relationship conflict, and lack of actual or perceived marital support, domestic violence, isolation or inadequate emotional or social support, single parenting, significant financial or work-related stress, unemployment, homelessness and adolescence (Wild Iris Medical Education 2012) 2.2 THE NURSING ROLE PPD is one area nursing has a lot to offer in terms of screening, education and treatment (counselling) Nurses by the nature of their work have frequent contacts with women and play an important role in their primary health care during pregnancy and postpartum period; as such can screen, assess risk and protective factors, refer, sometimes treat and counsel, and work collegially with other community......

Why Sexual Education Should Be Taught in Public School

...These findings show a missed opportunity to provide teen’s with medically-accurate information that pertain to contraceptives and abstinence (Cox et. al). It is clear that teens are in need of a comprehensive sexual education curriculum that teaches proper contraception use and abstinence in the United States. Evidence shows that with proper education, teens learn how to protect themselves from pregnancy, STDs, and how abstaining from sex is the best contraceptive method. In a perfect world, teaching abstinence-only sexual education would keep teens from having sex until they were married, but as evidence shows, this is not the case. With the millions of dollars the United States Government has spent on abstinence-only sexual education, it would make sense to use that money to teach youth that abstinence is the best method to prevent pregnancy and STDs, but also provide teens with medically accurate, age-appropriate information to protect themselves if they do decide to have sex.

Case Study 2, Alison Barnard APU ID# | Class ID # | 12213020 Name SHARMA Shaina | | | | List up three success factors for the business up to today, and explainthe details. | 1. Strategic Focus– In today’s rapidly changing world, it’s not just enough to have a purpose for existing. Leaders have to focus the organization’s resources on the greatest opportunities, which shift with each new day. Just run through your mind what has happened in the world or your organization in the past year or two, and you’ll understand what we mean by the reality of constant change. Doors open and doors close. Major customers or income sources can change or even go out of business at any time. So it’s necessary for leaders to keep focused on the desired end results such as increased sales and profits, or more satisfied customers, while constantly steering the organization across the stormy waters of the marketplace. As the illustration shows, the job of focused leaders is to connect and align all the Success Factors for optimum performance 2.

...of evidence-based literature. CONCLUSIONS Postpartum depression (PPD) is a significant public health problem which affects approximately 13% of women within a year of childbirth. Although rates of depression do not appear to be higher in women in the period after childbirth compared to age matched control women (10-15%), the rates of first onset and severe depression are elevated by at least three-fold. Depression at this critical period of life carries special meanings and risks to the woman and her family. It is possible to identify women with increased risk factors for PPD, but the unacceptably low positive predictive values of all currently available antenatal screening tools make it difficult to recommend them for routine care. Several postpartum screening tools exist but the optimal time for screening and their applicability to multicultural populations are not yet established. Metaanalysis of depression screening programs generally conclude that depression screening must be combined with systemic paths for referral of cases and well defined and implemented care plans to achieve outcome benefits. Unfortunately PPD remains underdiagnosed and undertreated. Research suggests that PPD is amenable to the same treatment interventions as general depression but few randomized controlled trials exist to guide practice and policy for this population. Evidence exists for short term negative effects of maternal PPD on the emotional, behavioural, cognitive, and interpersonal......

KONRAD2 Management Department, the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. Department of Organizational Behavior, Richard Ivey School of Business, U. of Western Ontario, London, Ontario, Canada 2 1 Summary This study examined the interactive effects of workplace diversity and employee involvement on organizational innovation. Using a sample of 182 large Canadian organizations, we found a three-way interaction between level of employee involvement, variation in involvement, and racioethnic diversity on innovation. In organizations with high levels of employee involvement, high variation in involvement was associated with higher involvement levels among racioethnic minorities, resulting in a stronger association between diversity and innovation. Furthermore, the association between White employee involvement and innovation was significantly more positive under the condition of high involvement among racioethnic minority group members. Thus, ensuring high levels of involvement among members of historically marginalized racioethnic groups enhances the innovation effects of employee empowerment systems.
