Capstone change project implementation plan II (Capstone change project resources)

This introductory paragraph should introduce the topic of your research change project and indicate the main focus of your strategic plan. Review your plan to determine what resources are needed to implement your interventions of the change proposal. Look at your gap analysis and connect it to the objectives that you wrote for the week 3 and the outcomes you wrote for week 4. Ask yourself “What change am I trying to accomplish? What will it take to get this accomplished? Who or what is involved in getting this change started and implemented? Which individual’s support will you need to obtain to facilitate this change ?

What type of graph would you use to display the organized data from each frequency distribution? What would be shown on each of the axes for each graph?

Graphing and Describing Data in Everyday Life

Suppose that you have two sets of data to work with. The first set is a list of all the injuries that were seen in a clinic in a month’s time. The second set contains data on the number of minutes that each patient spent in the waiting room of a doctor’s office. You can make assumptions about other information or variables that are included in each data set.

For each data set, propose your idea of how best to represent the key information. To organize your data would you choose to use a frequency table, a cumulative frequency table, or a relative frequency table? Why?

What type of graph would you use to display the organized data from each frequency distribution? What would be shown on each of the axes for each graph?

Graphing and Describing Data in Everyday Life

Follow-Up Post Instructions

Respond to at least one peer. Further the dialogue by providing more information and clarification.

Consider how different distributions might affect the different graphs. How might other variables affect the graphs? How could graphs be made to be biased? If a graph were biased, how might you change it to guard against that bias?

Question 2:
For this discussion, respond to the following three prompts:

How much do I value becoming culturally competent? What actions have I taken recently or in the past when caring for culturally diverse patients that demonstrate my motivation?

Cultural Competence

To understand culture and cultural diversity, you must understand your own culture and beliefs. Utilizing the Staircase Self-Assessment Model as a means of determining your level of cultural competency, write a 1250 to 1500-word essay outlining the six stages: cultural destructiveness, cultural incapacity, cultural blindness, pre-competency, basic cultural competency, and advance cultural competency. Determine your level on the staircase by answering the following questions. Be mindful that your responses will not be judged; only your knowledge of the Staircase Self-Assessment Model will be evaluated:

Step 1:

• How much do I value becoming culturally competent?
• What actions have I taken recently or in the past when caring for culturally diverse patients that demonstrate my motivation?

Step 2:

• How much do I know about my cultural heritage or racial identity and its relationship to my own healthcare beliefs and practices?
• Have I discussed these issues with my parents, grandparents, or other relatives?

Step 3:

• How much do I know about cultural groups that differ from my own?

Step 4:

• How culturally diverse is my social network?
• How many encounters with cultural group members outside my social network do I have? Are these relationships superficial, or do I have social contact beyond the workplace?

Step 5:

• Am I able to independently identify the potential or actual problems that originate from cultural conflicts, or am I surprised by them?
• Do I serve as a culturally competent role model/mentor for others?

Step 6:

• Have I developed problem-solving strategies to manage cultural conflicts?
• Am I able to manage or resolve cultural problems or issues that arise, and what resources do I use?

 

Once you have completed the self-assessment, address the following questions:

1. Why are self-knowledge and understanding a critical step in achieving cultural competence?

2. How has the “cultural self-assessment” exercise influenced your awareness of personal and professional values, attitudes, and practices, including prejudices and biases?

3. How will your interactions with patients and families change as a result of this self-reflection?
Remember, you answer these questions from your perspective, so there is no right or wrong response. You must address each question. Although the information on your self-assessment paper is strictly confidential, if you do not wish to self-disclose a specific area from the Staircase, indicate that by explaining in detail why you do not want to disclose. You are not required to provide citations/references in this paper. Attention should be paid to grammar, spelling, and punctuation.
