Thank you.

A walk through the Business section of any bookstore or a quick Internet search on the topic will reveal a seemingly endless supply of writings on leadership. Formal research literature is also teeming with volumes on the subject.

However, your own observation and experiences may suggest these theories are not always so easily found in practice. Not that the potential isn’t there; current evidence suggests that leadership factors such as emotional intelligence and transformational leadership behaviors, for example, can be highly effective for leading nurses and organizations.

Yet, how well are these theories put to practice? In this Discussion, you will examine formal leadership theories. You will compare these theories to behaviors you have observed firsthand and discuss their effectiveness in impacting your organization.

To Prepare:

  • Review the Resources and examine the leadership theories and behaviors introduced.
  • Identify two to three scholarly resources, in addition to this Module’s readings, that evaluate the impact of leadership behaviors in creating healthy work environments.
  • Reflect on the leadership behaviors presented in the three resources that you selected for review.

Write two key insights you had from the scholarly resources you selected. Describe a leader whom you have seen use such behaviors and skills, or a situation where you have seen these behaviors and skills used in practice. Be specific and provide examples. Then, explain to what extent these skills were effective and how their practice impacted the workplace.

Hello, please are two tasks. Task # 1 is a Care Plan, below I attach two forms in words that must be completed. Task # 2 is a Case Study that has three items a, b, and c, which must be answered independently.

Required Textbooks and Reading Material:

Touhy, Theris DNP and Jett, Kathleen, (2018). Ebersole and Hess’ Gerontological Nursing & Healthy Aging, 5th Edition. Elsevier. ISBN: 9780323401678

Task # 1

1. Care Plan 

What is a nursing care plan?

nursing care plan (NCP) is a formal process that includes correctly identifying existing needs, as well as recognizing potential needs or risks. Care plans also provide a means of communication among nurses, their patients, and other healthcare providers to achieve health care outcomes. Without the nursing care planning process, quality and consistency in patient care would be lost.

Medical Diagnosis: Alzheimer’s disease

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive disease that destroys memory and other important mental functions. It’s the most common cause of dementia – a group of brain disorders that results in the loss of intellectual and social skills. These changes are severe enough to interfere with day-to-day life. In Alzheimer’s disease, the connections between brain cells and the brain cells themselves degenerate and die, causing a steady decline in memory and mental function.

Task # 2

2. Case Study

What is a nursing case study?

nursing case study is an in-depth study of a patient that is encountered during the student’s daily practice in a practicum. They are important learning experiences because the student can apply classroom/theoretical learning to an actual situation and perhaps make some conclusions and recommendations.

Case Study,   Critical Thinking, Ethical Decision Making, and the Nursing Process

1. Mrs. Elle, 80 years of age, is a female patient who is diagnosed with end-stage cancer of the small intestine. She is currently receiving comfort measures only in hospice. She has gangrene of her right foot and has a history of diabetes controlled with oral agents. She is confused and the physician has determined that she is unable to make her own informed decisions. The hospice nurse, not realizing that the weekly order for CBC and renal profile had been discontinued, obtained the labs and sent them to the nearby laboratory for processing. The abnormal lab results obtained later that day revealed that the patient needed a blood transfusion. The hospice nurse updated the patient’s medical power of attorney who was distressed at the report. The patient’s wishes were to die peacefully and to not have to undergo an amputation of her right foot. But if the patient receives the blood transfusion, she may live long enough to need the amputation. The patient’s physician had previously informed the medical power of attorney that the patient would most likely not be able to survive the amputation. The patient’s medical power of attorney had made the request to cease all labs so that the patient would receive comfort measures until she died. The patient has no complaint of shortness of breath or discomfort. (Learning Objective 4)

a. What ethical dilemma exists?

b. Who are the stakeholders and what gains or losses do each have?

c. What strategies should the hospice nurse take to resolve the ethical dilemma?

Sample Nursing Care Plan

 

Student Name: Sally Jones Date: 1/17/12

Patient (initials only): R. N. Patient Medical Diagnosis: Stroke

Nursing Diagnosis (use PES format): Impaired physical immobility related to motor track dysfunction as evidenced by weakness and lack of coordination

Assessment Data

(Include at least three-five subjective and/or objective pieces of data that lead to the nursing diagnosis)

Goals & Outcome

(Two statements are required for each nursing diagnosis. Must be Patient and/or family focused; measurable; time-specific; and reasonable.)

 

Nursing Interventions

(List at least two nursing or collaborative interventions with rationale for each goal & outcome.)

Rationale

(Provide reason why intervention is indicated/therapeutic; provide references.)

Outcome Evaluation & Replanning

(Was goal(s) met? How would you revise the plan of care according the patient’s response to current plan of care?)

1. +2 weakness on left

upper and lower

extremity

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Inability to walk without

assistance (patient

shuffles when walks and

gets confused as to

which leg needs to

move to propel forward)

 

 

Statement #1: Patient will perform ROM exercises each hour during the shift.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Statement #2: Patient will ambulate from bed to door twice by the end of shift.

 

1. Educate pt about importance of ROM exercises.  Rationale:  If pt understands the importance of ROM exercises (to maintain and hopefully increase strength), the pt is more likely to participate in exercises (Potter & Perry, p. 4).

 

2. Assist pt w/ ROM exercises while teaching him how to perform ROM exercises.

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Consult with physical therapist for strength training and development of a mobility plan

 

 

 

 

 

1. Determine amount of assistance needed to get patient out of bed and ambulate.

 

 

 

 

 

2. Clear walkway of hazards.  Pt is at risk for falls so clearing hazards will provide a safe path to ambulate (Potter & Perry, p. 3).

 

1. If patient understands the important of ROM exercises (to maintain and hopefully increase strength), the patient is more likely to participate in exercises (Potter & Perry, p. 4).

 

 

2. Pt needs to be instructed on how to perform ROM exercises, and performing the exercises while instructing the patient will solidify his understanding so he can perform exercises on his own (Potter & Perry, p. 5).

 

 

3. Techniques such as gait training, strength training, and exercise to improve balance and coordination can be very helpful for rehabilitation patients (Tempin, Tempkin, & Goodman, 1997)

 

 

1. Weakness and lack of coordination can cause the pt to be off balance which would put him at risk for a fall.  Determining level if assistance needed before trying to assist out of bed and ambulate will prevent a fall for the patient (Potter & Perry, p. 2).

 

2. Pt is at risk for falls so clearing hazards will provide a safe path to ambulate (Potter & Perry, p. 3).

 

Outcome #1: Pt partially met goals.  He was open to and understanding of the need to perform ROM exercises, but he still needs guidance in how to perform.  Will continue to with current plan.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Outcome #2: Patient exceeded goal:  he walked 4 times. Wil modify plan to increase distance (to nurses’ station).

A Road Map to Developing an Effective Team

In the world of Healthcare today the one thing that is constant is change. As the healthcare industry changes, healthcare organizations must adapt and change with also. The one aspect that constantly communicated and implemented is a team-based care approach. With healthcare now also being a “consumer market”. Consumers are now shopping for providers in all medical categories and now the customer or focus is not on the providers, yet it has become consumer driven. Consumers want to know that the whole team is addressing their healthcare needs not solely the provider. The consumer wants to know that their office assistant (OA) is ensuring that their requested referral has been processed, and that the provider and medical assistant has given the OA all that is needed to process that request. For this task to take place their must be an effective team working together with good teamwork.

An effective team is a group of people that are working collaboratively together towards the same common goal. An effective team must have the characteristics of teamwork, good communication, trust, and motivation to ensure productivity interdependency and unity towards the desired organizational goals and objectives. To develop a team, you must identify and ensure that these characteristics are actively developed and demonstrated within the team. Let us look at the road map to creating an effective team and what you must characteristics a team must have for the team to be successful.

How to Develop Teamwork

According to Audiopedia, 2018, teamwork is defined as the collaboration within a team setting to achieve a common goal or to complete a task effectively. In an organization it is important to achieve a high level of teamwork in order for the organization to become productive as possible. In order to develop an effective team, teamwork must be an important part of developing a team (Audiopedia, 2018). To develop teamwork within a team there are many strategies that can be taken however, we will focus on the method of organizational learning (Buchbinder, Shanks, & Kite, 2019). Organizational learning requires that an organization focuses on the development of employees both individually and collectively fostering an environment of continued learning (Buchbinder, Shanks, & Kite, 2019).

Also in developing a team it is important to understanding and identifying the goals of the organization, the structure of a teams with defining roles and responsibilities while effectively communicating those roles and responsibilities.

Teamwork Development: Effective Strategy

As previously stated, developing teamwork requires an organization to adopt the organizational learning method. Organizational learning helps to develop teamwork by developing and encouraging employees to continually learn and share what they have learned with others to create optimal Healthcare services (Buchbinder, Shanks, & Kite, 2019). In organizational learning a team learns how to close the gap between “what we know and what we need to know” (Buchbinder, Shanks, & Kite, 2019).

According to Buchbinder, Shanks & Kite, 2019, once an organization understands that organizational learning method helps to develop educate and create an atmosphere of inclusion, then and only then will teamwork start to form for productively and success to happen.

Teamwork Development: Ineffective Strategy(ies)

When developing a team to create effective teamwork it is important that healthcare managers and leaders have an understanding of barriers that can arise. Teamwork is an interdependent function which means all members must be involved and order for meeting organizational goals (Buchbinder, Shanks, & Kite, 2019). Leaders need to understand how to avoid certain behaviors within a team to continually have a teamwork environment. Some of these barriers include avoiding responsibilities and ineffective communication (About Us:Berkley People & Culture, 2020).

When a team environment is broken from avoidance of responsibilities, it usually is the symptom of a larger problem. That problem is a lack of communication within management to the team due to undefined roles and responsibilities (About Us:Berkley People & Culture, 2020). When roles and responsibilities are undefined a team member can become “burned out” due to the weighted or shifted responsibilities from another team member. Another, barrier is lack of communication or ineffective communication. For cohesion to take place within a team, leaders and members must openly communicate the organizational goals, understand their roles and responsibilities while holding each member accountable for those roles and responsibilities. If ineffective communication exits, then a breakdown of trust happens (How to Build an Effective Team in a Healthcare Setting, 2018)

Teamwork Development: Maintaining Teamwork

Teamwork requires that you maintain it within a team. To maintain teamwork each member must be motivated to do so. Leaders and managers in Healthcare must clearly communicate to the team the goals of their organization along with clearly identifying the roles and responsibilities of all members of a team (How to Build an Effective Team in a Healthcare Setting, 2018). When all stakeholders clearly communicate and understand the organizational goals they are working towards , the team will openly listen ,rapport within the team start to form (How to Build an Effective Team in a Healthcare Setting, 2018).

When members receive effective communication of the goals and needs of their healthcare organization, and what role they play to meeting these goals, team members will be more motivated to helping the organization be a success. This shows members of a team that they have an invested interest wither it be to deliver excellent care or even achieve a yearly incentive there is an clear objective of the goal they are reaching (How to Build an Effective Team in a Healthcare Setting, 2018). Healthcare leaders and managers play a vital role in ensuring that teamwork is successful.

Communication

Communication is an essential tool in every team to ensure that a team performs efficiently, has enhanced focus and creativity. However, some members in a group or the entire might have communication difficulties. Ensuring that the communication one has with another is a clear and purposeful message that makes the team avoid engaging in simple gossips around the office. The other strategy is to ensure that meetings are short and productive, and promoting face-face interactions among team members is another strategy that could help enhance communication among team members (Ricard, 2020). Looking for the correct and effective channel as well as regular updates for team projects and goals.

 

Team Development: Effective Communication Strategy

Effective communication means that the employees are happy, thus boosting and maintaining a positive work environment. To allow effective communication within a team, one has to ensure that the members are active listeners, have empathy, are open minded to correction and criticism, and convey respect in everything they do. For effective communication to occur among team members, they have to be clear and concise for everything they say and do to avoid any misunderstandings that might lead to team conflict. Non-verbal communication such as gestures, eye contact, and tone convey the message being put across; thus, these non-verbal communications must be right and not aggressive.

 

Team Development: Handling Conflicts

Conflict in communication can be resolved in very many ways, especially at the workplace. One way is to be interested and show compassion for the argument that the next person is making. Listening carefully and being inquisitive is another way of handling conflict in communication. Eberhardt (2016) states that asking open questions to understand clearly what is being said crucial. Listening attentively also prevents the argument from escalating into conflict and negative words. Avoid being disrespectful by ensuring that the tone and voice one is using is not condescending or dismissive.

 

Team Development: Ineffective Communication Strategies

Many team leaders and managers make mistakes when developing or training a team in an organization. When developing a group, you are not supposed to do things that you are not supposed to do as a leader. Assuming that everybody is equal is mistake number one, showing the team that you prefer a particular individual in the team, and being subjective is some of the ineffective strategies used when developing a team. Accommodating indiscipline, doing almost every task yourself, not setting rules and regulations, and implementing unclear goals. All these are ineffective ways of building a team at the workplace or any other place.

 

Team Development: Maintaining Good Communication

As human beings, we engage in conversation daily, hence communicating about what we’ve seen, read, or told by other people. To ensure that you maintain effective and good communication with other people, here are strategies to help you. Have open communication with your team or friends, be clear, concise, and direct in whatever you’re communicating, and welcome feedback, opinions, and criticism from anyone. Listening attentively and avoiding any negative comments and coming from you should also help and lastly ensure that you are approachable.

Motivation within a Team

Motivation is key to keep team members enthusiastic about their work. Keeping a balance between offering pay raises or changes to work conditions or assigning people tasks that they enjoy can increase the team’s interest and motivation to complete a job well done.

Motivation is key to keep team members enthusiastic about their work. Keeping a balance between offering pay raises or changes to work conditions or assigning people tasks that they enjoy can increase the team’s interest and motivation to complete a job well done.

Team Development: Theoretical Concept of Motivation

One motivation theory is the Guaspari’s Proposal, he proposes topics like trust, engagement, empowerment, and values. He suggests managers create an environment in which it becomes easier for others to feel confident in what is expected of them. Creating an environment in which employees feel safe while exercising judgment, an environment that will bring full measure of effort and energy on the task at hand. This involves communicating clearly about strategy and direction, allowing team members to strive to achieve goals and working to develop team member by coaching and assistance from others. (Introduction to Health Care Management, Fourth Edition chapter 3)

Team Development: Ineffective Methods for Motivating a Team

Ineffective motivation theories such as the Scientific Management Theory (McGregor,1960) assumes people are motivated to continually work harder and become more efficient and the Ouchi’s Theory (Ouchi, 1981) Assumes employees who are involved and committed to an organization are motivated to increase productivity. Assumptions such as these cause conflict and low confidence within a team.

Team Development: Maintaining Motivation in a Team

There are two main types of motivation in the developing a team that extrudes high motivation and they are extrinsic and intrinsic types of motivation. Extrinsic motivation includes when a manager can use external factors to encourage a team to do what they need to be done by offering pay raises, time off, bonus check and the threat of job loss. Intrinsic motivation is internal and is about having a personal desire to overcome a challenge. Managers should interact with team members and trust them. Intrinsically motivated people get a great deal of satisfaction and enjoy what they do. It is important to know your team member and discover what motivates them and find a good mixture of extrinsic and intrinsic motivators (Introduction to Health Care Management, Fourth Edition chapter 3).
