Answer the 4 questions in a detailed and clear manner. These are short answers, not a whole essay.. but don’t just write a sentence either.
1. Epidemiology is a discipline that can be applied to many other varied disciplines, both within and outside the health sciences. What is your discipline and how has epidemiology been applied in this field? How might you personally apply epidemiologic principles and skills in your professional life?
2. How does epidemiology differ from other clinical health professions?
3. We discussed how epidemiology is concerned with determinants or risk factors. Identify 3 different risk factors (different from those mentioned in the lecture) and a disease outcome that could be associated with those risk factors.
4. Epidemics or outbreak occur in the United States and elsewhere across the globe. Do some online reasearch to identify a real-life outbreak that has occurred in the last 12 months. Describe the outbreak, why it occurred and the population of people affected. If the outbreak has subsided, what was done to control it? If the outbreak is ongoing, what could potentially be done to control it? How might the discipline of epidemiology be used to help prevent a similar outbreak from occurring in the future?

Assignment: Watch the 3 videos about implementing an evidence-based practice. Then find a current research article (<5 years) that discusses a new way of doing something that you do in your workplace. You are the unit manager. The parts of your paper should include:
1. An overview of the procedure or policy you want to change, and why it should be changed. Support your ideas with the article you found.
2. An explanation about the ideas that are in the 3 videos about how to implement change, and which of those ideas you would use.
3. An explanation of how you would implement and monitor this change. Would you have meetings? Informational sessions? Use coaches? Use selected staff to pilot the change? Implement gradually or all at once? This is not so much about the new procedure itself as it is about how you would introduce it. Support this with professional references about change.
4. A timeline for implementation of this change
5. An explanation of how you would evaluate the change process. Again, this isn’t about the procedure or policy itself, it’s about how you would evaluate how smoothly the change went.
Your submission should contain:
A title page and a reference page in APA style
Include APA section headers
An introductory paragraph explaining the procedure or policy, why it should be changed, according to your chosen article.
The plan for the proposed change in outline form, including timelines, people to be involved, how it will be introduced, and how it will be evaluated.
A minimum of 750 words is required.
4 professional references are required.

As a Medical Assistant, at times you are one of the first individuals to interact with a patient. From the time they enter the facility to the time they exit, it is all about ensuring that they have the most positive experience possible. There will be times when they may not have had the best experience prior to seeing you, such as a painful lab draw or an excessive wait time for an x-ray.
Mrs. Davis reports to your department for her 2:00 pm 6-month follow-up appointment with Dr. Stratton. She appears to be agitated as you are assessing her vitals. She starts to share how she is dissatisfied with the lab and the excessive wait time that she experienced that day. Explain what you could do to help ensure that she has a positive experience with you and your provider? Would you share her concerns and experiences with anyone after her appointment is over?

simply identify what organization you want to evaluate for your analysis assignm

simply identify what organization you want to evaluate for your analysis assignment. A single PPT slide that includes the organization’s basic information, location, etc is fine. Please note: publicly traded for-profit organizations will be MUCH easier to analyze than not-for-profits. Consider the availability of financial data in your selection.
You are required to develop a financial analysis of a healthcare organization. The intent of this assignment is to evaluate the financial and operational health of the company. You may pursue, analyze and synthesize any information source you choose (e.g., website content, current resident personal interviews, organizational documentation, etc). During the development process you will also be asked to review the work of some of your peers, provide feedback, and help support their development effort. This will also help you (1) learn about other organizations and (2) benchmark your efforts against the work of your peers. Your content should be clear, logical, and report on (at a minimum) the business’ location(s) direct competitors, and competitive market(s). From a financial perspective, your final presentations should contain analysis and discussion on 2- 3 ratios from each of the primary financial ratio categories discussed in Week 3 (e.g., liquidity, profitability, operating efficiency, and capital structure). A five-year trend analysis – including the most recent year of available information/data – is expected for each ratio selected. Interpret the ratios, the financial and market trends, and provide your perspectives on the strengths and weaknesses of the organization. Don’t just report the data. Tell me what it means. Ultimately, we want to know if the organization is financially sound and has strong long-term growth prospects. Why or why not?
