Treatment Plan:
The treatment plan should include medication for high blood pressure
and diabetes. Indeed, according to some evidence, the long term usage of
diuretic antihypertensives to reduce the presence of excess salts in the
body can help to lower blood pressure. (Klatt, 1) Given that the subject
of this discussion also suffers from an elevated risk of myocardial
infarction, the danger of cardiac arrest or general heart failure is of
greater concern than the presence of any side effects from the medication.
Research here denotes that the risk of myocardial infarction is increased
by the implications of hypertension, indicating that medication is
appropriate in this case. The treatment modality for both the prevention
of myocardial infarction and high blood pressure needs to be based on
regular medication habits. So is this the case with diabetes.
Also with regard to diabetes and concerning elevated cholesterol
levels, as elaborated in the discussion on lifestyle intervention, the
incorporation of regular physical activity, a health level of moderate
exercise….

Case Study Josie

Josie Case Study
The author of this report is asked to look at a case study relating to a young girl named Josie. The author is asked to answer to four particular high level questions and provide clear and concrete advice and solution to each of the four. Those four questions, in order, asked for risk factors, what should be done, what roadblocks will occur and the key legal/ethical considerations that will come up along the way.

As for the first question, that regarding the key advocacy issues and risk factors in play here, there are two in particular that scream out from this example of Josie. First, she is bi-racial and she is in a suburban school. It's not safe to assume, but it's fairly safe to say that a suburban school would be predominantly white and this would cause a massive amount of identity and bullying issues due to the….

curriculum committee proceed with the work yet to be done?
The curriculum committee should solicit information from all stakeholders, including part-time faculty, current students, and also the five acute care hospitals which are a part of the university network. It should create a map for future curriculum development, complete with specific deadlines for a timeline of activities. Unless goals are specifically set with a deadline-driven focus, it is far too easy for the curriculum committee to merely remain at the abstract and theoretical level of debate or to become stymied by political in-fighting (a particular danger in educational politics). Educational changes must be time-sensitive, particularly because when they are instituted there will inevitably be some change resistance from various stakeholders. Unless the process has a sense of urgency, people will not buy into the change.

Q2.What should the curriculum committee consider next?

The curriculum committee should consider specifically how curriculum changes and….

Innovation and Creativity: Case Study of Facebook
"FACEMASH TO FACEOOK: AN INNOVATIVE JOURNEY FROM UNIVERSITY SOCIAL NETWORKING WESITE TO ILLION DOLLAR usiness"

On 28th October, 2003, Mark Zukerberg wrote Facemash in order to create a social networking website for the students of Harvard. At that time he was not aware that he was starting a whole new era of social networking innovation and creativity. What was started as a tool of social networking for the students of university became the biggest social networking hub. The reason behind this unexpected and surprising success is the innovative and fearless attitude of the Facebook leader. In this rapidly changing world, it has become necessary for each and every business to innovate and change in order to survive and operate profitability. To create examples of this kind requires leadership hype in innovation, creativity, and change.

TTP Case Study
There are many different aspects of this company that help to foster innovation, beginning with the human resources at the company and the way they are viewed. It is clear that Gerald has had a commitment to hiring curious and investigative people from the start, and the employee-ownership structure of the company definitely helps to encourage an ongoing commitment to providing new and innovative ventures for the company. The general culture and atmosphere of curiosity and an emphasis on interest rather than profits (or in addition to profits, at the ver least) is also a very effective means of encouraging innovation as well as (presumably) encouraging employee retention, which would in trun foster innovation through the building of a great deal of camaraderie and trust amidst the company's teams.

This methods of innovation and of fostering innovation at TTP might not be easily transferable to other organizations, as many….

Ford Motor Company
Case Study of Ford Motor Company

History, Development and Growth

Ford Motor Company has been a vital American automaker since its incorporation in 1902. The car maker was started at that time by Henry Ford and has continued with some member of the family on the board of directors since that time. The company began selling individually manufactured vehicles, but moved to an innovation devised by the founder soon after. Henry Ford wanted to make a car that was easily mass manufactured. He came up with the Model A concept. Ford had all of the parts pre-made and then as the individual cars progressed through an "assembly line" parts were added at different stations until the car was complete at the other end of the line. With this new method of manufacture, Ford Motor Company was able to undercut the competition in price per vehicle. Following this, Ford grew astronomically.

Through….

Medication Error
Medical errors cost lives, and they cost health care organizations valuable resources. Nurses are often confused about their ethical as well as legal obligations, especially with a complex, constantly changing, global healthcare marketplace. Few medical errors are completely straightforward. Most incidents involve multiple actors and numerous stakeholders. Nurses are being increasingly challenged to combine deontological with utilitarian ethical viewpoints, an endeavor that is as challenging as the work of healthcare itself.

The Case

(from Hurley & Berghahn, 2010)

A nurse with 16 years of experience was working her third shift in 24 hours, one of which was a double shift. She spent last night sleeping in the hospital. Currently, the nurse was caring for two patients. One was a pregnant teenager admitted for labor induction. The patient tested positive for streptococcus, and a medical resident wrote an order for penicillin.

To prepare for the patient's procedure, the nurse removed the medications ordered for….

Case Study on Franz Berger
PAGES 7 WORDS 2119

Franz Berger is quality assurance manager and master brewer at Brewing Partner Ltd.(BPL), a Beijing- based management services organization. BPL had been established by the China Investment Group (CIG) with the precise mission of helping the two local breweries, Dragon and Golden Spring, "realize their aggressive return on invested capital targets." One of the main tools in achieving these goals was through an improved product that could begin to rival some of the Western beers that had appeared on the Chinese market (Fosters, Budweiser, etc.). These beers, even if commercialized at a much higher price than the local beers, had become serious competitors through their higher quality and Western fame.
In his attempt to achieve an increased quality of the product, the quality assurance manager, Franz Berger, implemented several measures aimed at improving monitoring and control of the production process. Among these, he introduced several testing programs, as well as sampling….

Case Study on Leadership
PAGES 2 WORDS 564

Leadership
Michael A. Todman has a position of legal authority in the company as the president of Whirlpool. He exercises leadership not only through his official position with the company, but also in his symbolic role as being a visionary and global communicator. His colleagues describe Todman as a stellar decision maker, which is a core component of effective leadership. Being born in the Caribbean means that Todman also has a global foundation from which to base his communications decisions, and other members of the senior management team characterize Todman as being a global leader. Todman understands how to triage problems and create lists of priorities, which helps him lead teams through times of crisis. His familiarity with operations and organizational culture alike make it so that Todman's decision-making is logical. One of the ways Todman has been able to be an outstanding leader for Whirlpool is by encouraging members of….

bipolar diagnosis: A case study of Miranda
Miranda is a sixteen-year-old second-generation Chinese-American girl who is suspected of manifesting bipolar disorder, according her referencing pediatrician. Miranda's specific, proposed diagnosis according to Appendix D of the DSM is "Bipolar 2 Disorder, in which the primary symptom presentation is recurrent depression accompanied by hypomanic episodes (a milder state of mania in which the symptoms are not severe enough to cause marked impairment in social or occupational functioning or need for hospitalization, but are sufficient to be observable by others)." However, there are also some indications that drug use may be provoking her symptoms Miranda comes from a very high-achieving family that places considerable weight upon academic success. Throughout most of her scholastic life, Miranda has excelled in school but her sophomore year of high school her grades began to decline. According to Miranda's mother (who is a self-described 'stay at home mom'),….

Public Administration: Case Study on Health Care Institution
This work will examine public administration theories and concepts along with individuals that have contributed to the field of public administration while simultaneously reviewing the case study set out for examination in this work in writing. The case study relates a hospital matter in which the hospital has received $250,000 funding which is not earmarked resulting in several key administrative personnel in the hospital contemplating how they believe the funding should be utilized and each with their own personnel departmental agenda in mind.

Contemporary Public Administration

Basu (2004) states that modern public administration "has usurped more and more functions within its scope. Besides law and order, revenue collection and security functions, it operationalizes a vast array of public laws, provides public services like post and telegraphs and transport facilities in cities and towns, and is the main instrument of socioeconomic transformation in developing societies." (p.2)….

Ethics, Social Justice & Advocacy Dimensions
Cultural diversity case study: Biko

Biko has overcome tremendous obstacles to attain his current level of educational and social achievement. However, this inevitably has caused him a great deal of personal stress. He is currently feeling socially marginalized in a largely all-white environment even though he is academically competent. His feelings of guilt regarding his parents' desire for him to attend a historically black college further compound this sense of frustration and alienation. Biko's lack of a social outlet has resulted in him taking out his anger against his girlfriend.

On an individual level, Biko is highly gifted intellectually in terms of his ability in the sciences. However, this gift in understanding things from a mechanical perspective might prove to be an impediment for him empathizing with others. On a group level, Biko identifies as an African-American, a historically-discriminated against group in America that has faced….

Case Study on CABG

Coronary Artery Bypass Graph Case Study
Rationale for selecting article:

As a nurse, I have interacted with patients who have required coronary artery bypass graphs, although this is a recent experience; before this I had not been involved in these procedures. It is a serious medical procedure, as most procedures involving the internal organs are, particularly with regard to the human heart. CABG are used by surgeons to treat people with coronary heart disease (CHD). Plague within the heart hardens and then narrows the coronary arteries, reducing flow of blood to the heart which can result in a blood clot. CABG allow for the needed blood to get through the heart by bypassing the blocked artery. During the procedures, patients are anesthetized and then a healthy artery or vein is taken from another part of the body and connected to the blocked coronary artery. The article chosen is entitled "Percutaneous Coronary Intervention….
