[Unlocked] Week 4 Discussion Rubric

[Unlocked] Week 4 Discussion Rubric

 

Although contracts can be designed to protect the promisor and promisee of an agreement, it is important to understand that they also carry risk. If someone is careless or fails to read the terms closely before the interested parties sign, he or she may make a costly commitment.

For this Discussion, you will examine business contracts and assess potential issues and risks associated with those contracts, as well as ways to avoid these risks using scholarly resources on contract law.

To prepare for this Discussion:

  • Review the Learning Resources and consider these questions:
    • How do you know when an agreement becomes a contract?
    • What information should you know before entering into a contract?
    • What are ways to protect yourself as you enter or advise others to enter a contract?
  • Think of a negative experience that would have resulted or did result from the terms of a contract you entered or almost entered. Alternatively, consider the experience(s) of someone else you know or a situation you heard about on the news or on social media. You will use this experience or scenario to discuss the possible risks associated with contracts.
    • Note: If using a scenario from your own personal experience (or the experience of someone else you know) for this Discussion, be sure to substitute fictitious names for any people involved and any associated businesses.
  • Review the Academic Writing Expectations for 2000/3000-Level Courses.

By Day 3

Post a 150- to 225-word (2- to 3-paragraph) description of the risks that are associated with a business contract that you either experienced or observed. In your explanation, address the following:

  • Describe the business contract and the scenario that revolved around it.
  • Explain the risks of the contract and how they resulted (or could have resulted) in a negative situation.
  • Explain how you (or the person/interested party in the scenario) could have avoided (or did avoid) the negative situation by having a better understanding of contract law at the time.
  • Include a reference(s) to a minimum of one scholarly source to support your response.

Refer to the Week 4 Discussion Rubric for specific grading elements and criteria. Your Instructor will use this grading rubric to assess your work.

Read some of your colleagues’ postings.

By Day 5

Respond with at least 75 words (1 paragraph) each to two or more of your colleagues’ postings by providing additional information on any other contract laws that could have protected your colleagues.

Return to this Discussion in a few days to read the responses to your initial posting. Note what you have learned or any insights you have gained as a result of the comments your colleagues made.

[Unlocked] Factors Including Lower Cost

 

The Power Grid and Big Data

 (Clipart from MS Office)

The electric-utility business is going through a major business process reengineering (BPR), stemming from technology improvements, economic forces, and public awareness.  The electricity sector is transforming from large plants that produce hundreds or thousands of megawatts of power that are sent to users through distribution grids, thanks to factors including lower cost natural gas and solar power.  Other factors include advanced control systems; more compact, smarter, and efficient electrical inverters; smart electricity meters and the growing Internet of Things; and the ever-growing ability to extract actionable information from big data.

Use this forum to discuss solar power as an alternate to electricity.  Although solar panels for most homes is not yet cost effective, discuss government subsidies that aim to put solar panels on more rooftops.  What is ‘community solar’ and would you join such an initiative?  What is a microgrid and its advantages/disadvantages to our current electricity grid?

REMEMBER- every post (New Thread or Reply) must be supported by relevant information. Prove the point you are making by a) citing external research, b) citing readings from the class content, or c) providing examples or  personal experiences that are relevant and support your position on the topic. It is always better to begin your reflection on the topic by doing some research/reading, either a) or b) or both, before considering personal experience. This research, reflection and subsequent writing is an essential part of the learning process, framing your personal experience against and alongside more general theories, concepts and writing on the topi

[Unlocked] Nurses Use Direct Patient

[Unlocked] Nurses Use Direct Patient

 

To successfully complete this assessment, perform the following preparatory activities:
Select a single direct or indirect patient care technology that is relevant to your current practice or of interest to you. Direct patient care technologies require an interaction, or direct contact, between the nurse and patient. Nurses use direct patient care technologies every day when delivering care to patients. Electronic thermometers or pulse oximeters are examples of direct patient care technologies. Indirect patient care technologies, on the other hand, are those employed on behalf of the patient. They do not require interaction, or direct contact, between the nurse and patient. A handheld device for patient documentation is an example of an indirect patient care technology. Examples of topics to consider for your annotated bibliography include:
Delivery robots.
Electronic medication administration with barcoding.
Electronic clinical documentation with clinical decision support.
Patient sensor devices/wireless communication solutions.
Real-time location systems.
Telehealth.
Workflow management systems.
Select four peer-reviewed publications focused on your selected topic that are the most interesting to you.
Evaluate the impact of patient care technologies on desired outcomes.
Analyze current evidence on the impact of a selected patient care technology on patient safety, quality of care, and the interdisciplinary team.
Integrate current evidence about the impact of a selected patient care technology on patient safety, quality of care, and the interdisciplinary team into a recommendation.
Notes
Publications may be research studies or review articles from a professional source. Newspapers, magazines, and blogs are not considered professional sources.
Your selections need to be current—within the last five years.
An Evidence-based Recommendation for Selected Technology Implementation
Prepare a 4–6 page paper in which you introduce your selected technology and describe at least four peer-reviewed publications that promote the use of your selected technology to enhance quality and safety standards in nursing. You will conclude your paper by summarizing why you recommend a particular technology by underscoring the evidence-based resources you presented. Be sure that your paper includes all of the following elements:
Introduction to the Selected Technology Topic
What is your rationale for selecting this particular technology topic? Why are you interested in this?
What research process did you employ?
Which databases did you use?
Which search terms did you use?
Note: In this section of your bibliography, you may use first-person since you are asked to describe your rationale for selecting the topic and the research strategies you employed. Use third person in the rest of the bibliography, however.
Annotation Elements
For each resource, include the full reference followed by the annotation.
Explain the focus of the research or review article you chose.
Provide a summary overview of the publication.
According to this source, what is the impact of this technology on patient safety and quality of care?
According to this source, what is the relevance of this technology to nursing practice and the work of the interdisciplinary health care team?
Why did you select this publication to write about out of the many possible options? In other words, make the case as to why this resource is important for health care practitioners to read.
Summary of Recommendation
How would you tie together the key learnings from each of the four publications you examined?
What organizational factors influence the selection of a technology in a health care setting? Consider such factors as organizational policies, resources, culture/social norms, commitment, training programs, and/or employee empowerment.
How would you justify the implementation and use of the technology in a health care setting? This is the section where you will justify (prove) that the implementation of the
patient care technology is appropriate or not. The evidence should be cited from the literature that was noted in the annotated bibliography.
Consider the impact of the technology on the health care organization, patientcare/satisfaction, and interdisciplinary team productivity, satisfaction, and retention.
