Professional Development exercises.

Please complete ALL THREE of the Professional Development exercises.

  • Develop a workflow analysis of the patient flow in the Emergency Department. This will include the time the patient enters the ED to the time they interact with the following:
    • Receptionist
    • Triage Nurse
    • Assigned Nurse
    • Physician
    • Lab and/or Imaging
    • Admit to floor or discharge to home
  • Make sure to include SmartArt to delineate the different areas within the workflow and include a key.
  • Read the Following and Answer Questions

“In my experience consulting, I have seen several examples of organizations that incorporate the printing of paper reports, which replicate information that has been entered and is available with the electronic patient record. These reports are often reviewed, signed, and acted on instead of the electronic information. Despite the knowledge that the information contained in these reports was outdated the moment the report was printed and the very nature of using the report for workflow is an inefficient practice, this method of clinical workflow is prevalent in many hospitals across the United States. There is an underlying fear that drives the decision to mold a paper-based workflow around clinical technology. There is also a lack of the appropriate amount of integration that would otherwise allow this information to be available in an electronic form.”

  • How does workflow analysis help practicing nurses?
  • Can we mold paper-based workflows into clinical information systems? Explain your answer.
  • Imagine that you are the INS charged with implementing the use of electronic records. What strategies could you use to promote a seamless transition?

Please submit one APA formatted analysis consisting of 1500 words, not including the title and reference page. The assignment should have a minimum of two scholarly sources, in addition to the textbook.

 Purdue Online Writing Lab

In this week’s discussion question you were asked to consider a potential problem (appropriate to your role option) that you would like to investigate through nursing research. For this assignment you will review current research from South’s Online Library and provide a critical evaluation on that research through an annotated bibliography. An annotated bibliography is a brief summary and analysis of the journal article reviewed. For more information on annotated bibliographies please visit Purdue’s OWL: Purdue Online Writing Lab

A total of two annotated bibliographies are to be submitted (not to exceed one page each). The articles must come from nursing scholarly literature and may not be older than 5 years since publication. Please note that the articles must be research based and reflect a quantitative methodology (review our reading assignments). Web pages, magazines, textbooks, and other books are not acceptable.

Each annotation must address the following critical elements:

  • Explanation of the main purpose and scope of the cited work
  • Brief description of the research conducted
  • Value and significance of the work (e.g., study’s findings, scope of the research project) as a contribution to the subject under consideration
  • Possible shortcomings or bias in the work
  • Conclusions or observations reached by the author
  • Summary as to why this research lends evidence to support the potential problem identified specific to your role option.

healthcare policy decisions

Regardless of political affiliation, every citizen has a stake in healthcare policy decisions. Hence, it is little wonder why healthcare items become such high-profile components of presidential agendas. It is also little wonder why they become such hotly debated agenda items.

In this Discussion, you will share your first draft with your colleagues to receive feedback to be applied to your final version.
