Conduct a research on one of the top fifteen health care organizations in the U.S.

Your research should include the following questions:

  • How will you find listings of the top fifteen health care systems?
  • What are the various components of the selected health care system? How does it rank in terms of reduced mortality and infection rates?
  • What are the services provided by the healthcare delivery system?
  • What are the current trends contributing to the high ranking and the future path of this health care organization?
  • How does the organization manage and distribute resources for improved patient care?

In a Microsoft Word document, create a 2- to 3-page report, on the basis of your research. Provide at least two resources or journal articles referring to the selected organization.

Support your responses with examples.

Cite any sources in APA format.

The leading public health care problems in the U.S. are:

  • Mental disorders
  • Consumption of alcohol, nicotine, OTC drugs, and prescription drugs

The count for people suffering from a diagnosable mental disorder in a given year is on the rise. This figure translates to approximately 57.7 million people currently (National Institute of Mental Disorder, 2008).

In relation to problems regarding drugs, consumption of alcohol is considered as the leading problem. In addition, the consumption of Nicotine, OTC drugs, and prescription drugs are other prominent issues (McKenzie, Pinger, & Kotecki, 2008).

Based on these statements, create a report in a Microsoft Word document, discussing the following:

  • Is the diagnosis of mental illnesses still viewed with a negative attitude as was done several years ago? Why or why not?
  • Are the local and national health care providers adequately responding to the needs of people suffering from mental disorders?
  • Should the local health care communities be held responsible for mandating specific care and treatment for the affected population? Why or why not?
  • What are the two major types of abused drugs and the age groups most likely to use them? Why is drug usage prevalent among these populations?
  • What roles should the state governments' or private health agencies or organizations play in order to prevent and control drug abuse?

Assignment 1

A required assignment (RA) is a substantive assessment intended to measure student performance against selected course objectives and program outcomes within a course. RAs are completed by all students across all Argosy University campuses and delivery formats without exception. Each RA contributes to a significant portion of the overall course grade and is assessed by the instructor using the rubric designed for that assessment. These are individual assignments, and students earn individual grades. RAs are not intended to assess students on every topic covered in the course—just on the key course objectives and program outcomes.

Literature Review

Grading Criteria

In this course, two major assignments (or RAs) make up 50% of your total class grade.

In RA 1, you will develop an advocacy plan based on the scenario provided. Your plan will incorporate the relevant American Counselling Association (ACA) Advocacy Competencies and your approach to facilitating client wellness. Your final product will be a 10- to 14-slide Microsoft PowerPoint presentation written in APA format, utilizing at least five scholarly sources. The description of RA 1 is given on the page M4 Assignment 2 RA 1.

In RA 2, you will investigate a topic of interest to you that is relevant to professional counseling. Consider choosing a topic appropriate to an area in which you hope to or may consider specializing. The topic may address a specific population, a disorder or a diagnosis, a treatment method or technique, a current professional issue, or a social justice issue in counseling. The literature review is designed to increase your knowledge of the topic and improve your CMHC practice or service delivery. Information included in the literature review should be current and scholarly in order to be relevant. You must receive instructor approval for your topic by Module 3. Your final product will be an 8- to 10-page Microsoft Word document written in APA format, utilizing at least 10 scholarly sources. The description of RA 2 is given on the page M7 Assignment 2 RA 2.

Select two to three psychological disorders from different classifications.

 

Write a 1,500- to 1,750-word paper describing the following:

 

  • The main features of each disorder
  • How the features present in behavior
  • Possible treatment options

Refer to your reading for this unit in the Coyle text for this assignment. Read the "Fireside Tire Organization (FTC) Case Study," on pages 547–548 in your text. In a 2–4 page paper, answer the three case questions.

As you answer the questions, relate the FTC story to any similar experiences you have had in an organization. (You may choose any organization about which you have sufficient knowledge to compare, including the organization with which you are currently employed, a former employer, or the organization you have chosen to study for your project.)

To help you get started on the Case Assignment for this week I am providing the following;

1. Use Rate/CWT-mile of $7.

2. Follow the example (Table 12-2, pg 535) to complete this assignment.

3. Complete only Case Question #1. 

4. Please explain your result using Excel, and don't forget to attach the copy.



A student asked for additional guidance and I'll share my response I provided here:



"You need to calculate the Grid Coordinates as indicated in Table 12-2 to demonstrate that the optimal location is ??????, if that is what the numbers approximate. 



If you go to Table 12.2, your template should look like that with the "Grid Center" as your final calculation.



Geographical characteristics of the adjoining areas/locations might also make a difference, which may be taken into account by the Grid Technique. This type of information might only be available to knowing or investigating the area indepth. Your independent research and personal contemporary experience will be "value-added" which will add to your grade

Technological Subversion

For your third essay, please write a two to three-page (600-900 word) response to the following question:

In "Technological Subversion" (pp. 145-156), David Strong questions “the good life” that modern technology seems to afford us. What point is Strong making here, and what is your assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of his position? How does Strong’s distinction between “things” and “devices” serve to support or detract from his claims?

Please ensure that your essay addresses each component of the assigned question and that your answer is well-organized, uses excellent, college-level prose, and makes judicious use of textual evidence.
