Political Competence

Senior executives from a variety of organizations are often called to testify about health policy issues (as you saw in Unit 3’s group project about the U.S. congressional hearing). It is in the organization’s best interest if these executives are both politically competent and good corporate citizens.In general terms, what knowledge, skills, and individual behaviors must an executive have to be politically competent and to be good corporate citizens?Think about the witness whose testimony you summarized for the group project. Did he or she demonstrate political competence? Explain.Think about a particular health care organization’s corporate citizenship. How would you describe it (e.g., “good,” “average,” or “poor”)? What did the organization do (or not do) to achieve this level of corporate citizenship?

Strategic Planning PowerPoint


You are the business manager of a fifteen-physician group practice in family medicine that at a recent strategic planning retreat agreed to open a satellite clinic on the periphery of its current market area in order to increase the number of families it serves. The clinic will be located in the area of somewhat older, rundown homes that seems to be undergoing slow but steady gentrification. The clinic initially will be staffed by three physicians and has a maximum capacity of ten doctors. One of your responsibilities under the strategic plan to create the clinic is to establish a modest program for keeping track of the factors and variables that might affect the success of the clinic. To get started, prepare a list of ten to fifteen financial and nonfinancial metrics that you propose to monitor, including the sources you will use to gather the necessary data. For each one of the metrics, indicate the directions in which they might change and the adjustments in the plan for the new clinic that would be necessary.


Create a PowerPoint presentation (15 slides including the Reference slide-include website links if used) that includes or addresses the following elements:

1  Ten to 15 financial and nonfinancial metrics.

2  Sources for gathering the necessary data.

3  The direction in which each metric may change and how it will impact the plans for the new clinic.


Solid academic writing is expected and in-text citations and references should be presented using APA documentation guidelines within the speaker notes of the PowerPoint presentation.

Share a Research Database Description

Review the guidelines and grading rubric for the Research Database Assignment due in Week 3. Search for ONE research database that is relevant to your nursing clinical issue, briefly describe the issue you are investigating, and use the instructions on the form provided in Doc Sharing to write your review. Briefly describe your process for locating databases that contain relevant research studies. Did you have any difficulties or face any challenges?


 Example Please follow

Title:  Joanna Briggs Institute for Evidence-Based Nursing and Midwifery

Location   ( URL):  www.joannabriggs.edu.au

Owner or publisher  :  Joanna Briggs Institute for Evidence-Based Nursing and Midwifery (JBI)

Describe (in your own words) the research database or collection of research including the purpose and the subject matter it covers :

The Joanna Briggs Institute is an international not-for-profit Research and Development Organization that provides evidence-based resources for healthcare professionals in nursing, midwifery, medicine, and allied health. Those with membership  are able to obtain evidence-based practice information from systemic reviews, evaluation reports, electronic journals, best-practice information, and consumer healthcare information.

Explain how the source relates to your topic of interest :

          JBI is relevant to my topic of interest because it provides reports, systemic reviews, journal   articles, and best-practice information on current issues in
healthcare. Hospital  re-admissions are a major issue in healthcare. The database had several resources  addressing the problem of hospital re-admissions and identifying strategies for  improvement

When answering this TD,  the main idea is to describe  the database  that you found, not individual articles that are relevant to your topic. 

You will also need to briefly describe your process for locating databases that contain relevant research studies. Did you have any difficulties or face any challenges?

This paper is due by March 24th — the sooner I can get it the better – this will give me time to review, work with you, finalize and get you payment

The questions should all run in sequence like they are on the attached BUT BE IN BOLD – then the answers follow the question and are not in bold.



it is APA

An APA reference page must be included


for my subect — I would choose something about one of these topics:  something involving children, women or minorities; drug/alcohol abuse.. that type of thing.  I think it is important you know that so that you do not pick a peer article on something random that I would never write about.  If you find an article and are unsure PLEASE send me a message first.
