Problem-solving is arguably one of the most applicable lessons to take away from critical thinking. As we navigate the world, we are bound to run into problems at a small and large scale that need to be solved in order for us to achieve success. With this in mind, we will be turning our attention to the topic of social media which is now a very important facet of American society.
Because the prompt is asking you to take the role of a college president, you are asked to write from a first-person point of view.
Nicholas Carr, author of the article Is Google Making Us Stupid? captures the double-bind that is associated with recent technological advancements. While the positive impacts cannot be ignored, there are, undoubtedly, consequences that appear in the form of harmful habits. Is it possible to reconcile this tension and come to a middle ground when using technology in an academic setting?
Task: Imagine that you are the president of your college and that you want students to use the full power of the Internet in their education but you also wish them to develop their abilities to think deeply, concentrate, and contemplate.
Use the problem-solving method in this chapter to consider the dilemma. Then, write an essay in which you analyze this problem and develop some practical solutions for dealing with this challenge. There should be plenty of quoted or paraphrased evidence in the body paragraphs from at least two sources which necessitate a works cited page.
For this essay, you are pretending to be a college president who is speaking to a committee of colleagues
within the college. If itd help, you can imagine that you are, specifically, president of ECC, although you can choose another real or imaginary school as well. Usually, committees involving the president are very large; there are a number of people in administrative as well as teaching positions who will attend. With this in mind, its important to note that your audience is both very intelligent, very diverse and, quite possibly, not very patient. You should be able to articulate your ideas clearly to people who admire and hate you. How will you get through to as many audience members as possible while maintaining a professional and academic tone?
A Works Cited page is needed
answer the 12 questions of the test. You can use your book, notes, or class presentations to elaborate on your discussions.
Your research paper should be at least 3 pages (800 words), double-spaced, have at least 4 APA references
Please respond to your peerâ€™s posts, from an FNP perspective. To ensure that your responses are substantive, use at least two of these prompts:
- Do you agree with your peersâ€™ assessment?
- Take an opposing view to a peer and present a logical argument supporting an alternate opinion.
- Share your thoughts on how you support their opinion and explain why.
- Present new references that support your opinions.
Please be sure to validate your opinions and ideas with citations and references in APA format. Substantive means that you add something new to the discussion, you arenâ€™t just agreeing. This is also a time to ask questions or offer information surrounding the topic addressed by your peers. Personal experience is appropriate for a substantive discussion and should be correlated to the literature.Be sure to review your APA errors in your reference list, specifically you have capitalization errors in some words of the titles.Include the DOI. Also, be sure you are italicizing titles of online sources.No more than 200 words maximum.
These are the questions my peers had to answer:Review the assessment of cultural and social factors relevant to the geriatric client.In your initial post, relate a client scenario that you recently encountered that brought out the importance of this assessment.Review the literature, and evaluate three evidence-based articles that support your findings from the assessment.In subsequent posts,provide consultation to your fellow students.
Cultural and Social Factors
Assessing cultural and social factors are imperative in all populations, but deserve additional attention in the older population. Ageist stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination are potential barriers for health equality, in terms of the quantity and quality of care provided to older patients and their health-related outcomes (Wyman, Shiovitz-Ezra, & Bengel, 2018). Ageism provides people with a rationalization for not valuing or taking elders seriously because of perceptions associated with aging. Often times, â€œold ageâ€ can be used as an excuse for common health complaints among the elderly population both by both providers and patients alike. One recent qualitative study on back pain, which is one of the most common medical conditions among older adults, found that many older patients believe that pain is a â€œnormalâ€ part of old age and to be expected (Makris et al. 2015). This poses a great concern for providers because older patients will often not seek medical evaluation for these physical ailments. Elders are less likely to seek treatment for unmet medical needs, due to low expectancies of being helped because of their advanced age (Wyman, Shiovitz-Ezra, & Bengel, 2018). These situations can be chalked down to common bias about the elderly population being frail and interdependent. A culturally-sensitive approach to caring for the elderly population promotes independence and autonomy, which is something that this population often struggles with as the body ages and becomes less resilient. Understanding the patientâ€™s underlying values, beliefs, and identities can help establish provider awareness of each individual as a unique, aging patient. The older patient`s home, cultural landscape, employment history and mother tongue are important for an elderly`s subjective health history and their individual assessment of quality of life (Minde , 2015). Not only does this establish a relationship and connection with the patient, but displays a sense of respect while avoiding stereotyping. The culturally competent health worker needs to understand his/her views of this population, as well as those of the patient, while avoiding stereotyping, ageism, and misapplication of knowledge (Minde , 2015).
I had the pleasure of caring for a Hispanic eighty-eight-year-old female who was brought into the hospital by her granddaughter after staying at home for the past two days with right-sided upper extremity paresthesia and neck pain. This patient became a stroke alert, due to the paresthesia presentation in the emergency department. She was consequently educated on stroke-like symptoms and possible treatment options for stroke. When asked why she did not call for emergency help, she persisted to respond that she was â€œold and did not want to be treated because she was oldâ€. So, although she ended up have cervical radiculopathy, she equated her symptoms to a â€œnormalâ€ aging process and expected health deteriorations as a natural part of life. Her granddaughter further explained that she was the matriarch of the family and was expected to â€œbe strongâ€ and not seek medical help for â€œgetting olderâ€. Working with racial/ethnic groups such as Latinos requires knowledge of additional diversity factors such as acculturation and familial structural beliefs that can have direct influence on aging issues, end-of-life concerns, and physical illness (Tazeau, 2018). This challenges providers to have multicultural knowledge on how to address health concerns, advocacy, and health promotion in a culturally competent, gerodiverse manner.

In order to provide culturally sensitive care to the elderly population, or any population, it is important to have a clear understanding of their beliefs, as well as their â€œculturally specific incidence and prevalence of health conditionsâ€ (Mareno & Hart, 2014). As part of our health assessment, based on a patientâ€™s culture, we are more likely to expect certain illnesses that lead us to direct our health promotion and provide care. Because the elderly are classified as a frail population and the number of older Americans is increasing each year, it is important that those caring for them can meet their needs. Ideally, they would stay in their homes and care for themselves as long as possible (Oâ€™Donoghue, Botha, & Van Rensburg, 2014). However, caregivers may mention that tasks of normal daily living are becoming more and more difficult. In my clinical rotation, we had an 82-year-old patient that was very realistic about what he thought he could and could not do following his proposed surgery. It was encouraging and heartbreaking at the same time to hear he and his wife discussing what they thought they could manage at home and then coming to the decision, that as much as it was not their first choice, they knew he would need to go to a rehabilitation facility following surgery. I am sure that this was a difficult choice to make, but both of them knew that for the best possible outcome, due to her failing health as well, he would need a brief stay away from home. As a practice, we were able to be sensitive to these issues and plan for the safest possible discharge plan to eliminate other complications. Key areas of providing cultural and socially sensitive care include open communication between the provider and patient, setting plans for what each persons expectations are for the situation at hand, and understanding that not all patients have the same beliefs, but we have to support those of each patient we are with related to culture (Oâ€™Donoghue, Botha, & Van Rensburg, 2014). Because our population is growing older each year, it is more important that ever for us to be prepared for those we will care for. â€œNurse practitioners care for patients from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds, and in order to deliver high quality primary care that is meaningful, effective, and cost effective, these providers must develop a greater understanding and appreciation of the social-cultural background of clients, their families, and the environment in which they liveâ€ (Elminowski, N., 2015).

Instruction for writer:
Given the research focus attached my supervisor write the bellow feedback
1. Your literature on organisational learning needs enhancing. You are clearly approaching this from a functionalist paradigm which is not of doctoral standard. For example on p.197 you claim the organization learned which is a form of reification. Below are the legitimising and ceremonial citations that are required of a piece of doctoral work that seeks to analyse organisational learning: Fiol and Lyles 1985; Brown and Duguid 1991; Weick 1991; Cook and Yannow 1993; Dodgson 1993; Kim 1993; Price 1995; Miner and Mezias 1996; Weick and Wesley 1996; Easterby-Smith 1997; Tsang 1997; Klimeki and Lassleben 1998; Crossan et al. 1999a; Crossan et al. 1999b; Easterby-Smith and Araujo 2001; Lhteenmki et al. 2001; Williams 2001 If you want an understanding of how organisation and learning are linked, this is actually covered in C. J. PhD thesis (attached). Your approach assumes anthropomorphism, rather than viewing an organisation as a network of promises. The work on social construction cited above will also help you in this capacity. You need to write the thesis from the perspective of a doctoral researcher, not a functionalist.
More explanation for supervisor notes:
You need to consider Two aspects, first put the theory into context that is already mentioned in your text, second the context is range of ideas, you need to demonstrate the good repost knowledge of these range of ideas in order to justify the choice idea you use. you need to demonstrate a deep understating of organization learning literature because you analyse the organization. Depth reflection of ideas before specific choice of them. Please do not set their theories in context you develop, read the ideas and choose then emerge your context. You should clearly demonstrate How choice you made fit within broad range of organization learning theory in specific aspect which chosen because your context study the empirical research you do. You need to show you know org learning literature and you make systematic choice because the context of empirical research you do. Have idea is enough you have to justify including ideas and why selected and you need to do. Combined you with much more sophisticated to what you write, I need to show familiarities of established literature. and how to add to them Important instruction Attached is part of C. J. PHD, please read and write critical accordingly. His structure is good, but we can not copy his structure. Please focus in how individual and group learning are generating organization learning given that current thesis is adopting interpretative methodology so you are critical subjectivism and you reflect in what you see or learn. For your information, The data in the research is collected through learning journal and it is generating lesson learns and reflect accordingly on policy practice, people action, challenge and soo on The current thesis adopted on theory in use , and single and double loop learning. Supervisor need to know more about organization learning in literature and which ideas this research adopted. Make sure that it is not learning organization but organization leaning. Reference in text should be automated by using word citation and the style will be APA.
