To help you move forward with your Course Project, this week you identify a quality issue that you would like to address and submit a description of this issue for Instructor feedback. Your proposed issue should reflect a genuine need for improvement within your selected health care organization. Through your Course Project, you will analyze this issue and propose strategies to improve outcome(s), including the redesign of a related process.

To prepare: •Review the six quality improvement aims from the Institute of Medicine (IOM) presented in Chapter 3 of the Sadeghi, Barzi, Mikhail, and Shabot text.

•Conduct a search of the literature to help you identify a specific issue that warrants attention and action to promote quality improvement.

•Consider what you have surmised thus far through your analysis of the organization that you selected. What have you noticed that could help you identify a quality-related need for improvement? For instance:

•What has captured your attention in meetings, reports, and/or daily activities?

•Have you noticed discrepancies between activities in the organization and recommendations in the research literature, quality standards, and/or the organization’s stated policies and procedures?

•If so, what do you think could be the reason(s) for variations or gaps between what you have observed and what is recommended?

•Identify a quality improvement issue that you would like to investigate for this project.

The instructions for this assignment asks for students to identify a quality improvement issue, and provide a description of the issue they wish to pursue. This can be accomplished in 2 paragraphs.

1 PAGE PUBLIC HEALTH (CREATING AN ALGORITHM) HIV/AIDS
July 5, 2018
1 PAGE APA NOT INCLUDING MIN 4 REFERENCES

Tracking the spread of diseases can be an intricate, complex, and labor-intensive process. As a result, automated surveillance systems utilizing algorithms are employed to interpret data. In this segment of your Scholar-Practitioner Project, you develop a simple algorithm to interpret data related to the disease (HIV/AIDS) To aid your development, review your Learning Resources and research the construction of algorithms.

To complete this portion of your Scholar-Practitioner Project, write a 1-page paper that addresses the following: (ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS IN PAPER)

1)Identify the indicators you chose to include and explain why they are appropriate.

2)Describe the logical process of the algorithm (you may wish to illustrate using a diagram).

3)Justify any other salient features of the algorithm.

4)Evaluate the strengths and limitations of the algorith

HIV/AIDS IN LOWER INCOME COMMUNITIES
July 5, 2018
his week, you explore annotated bibliographies, which are part of a larger systematic review of literature. The main purpose of the annotated bibliography is to delve into the current knowledge base surrounding a chosen problem. Reviewing the literature and discovering the current state of the research will help to identify gaps in the knowledge or questions not yet answered about the problem. An annotated bibliography is usually your “first look” at the published literature relating to a problem of interest. Annotated bibliographies help identify the all-important research question that needs to be addressed related to that problem. According to the Walden Library, an annotated bibliography combines “a set of notes, comments, or critiques” with “a list of references that helps a reader identify sources of information”

What type of information should be included in these notes, comments, and critiques? The annotations should summarize the key information in the article or resource without merely paraphrasing the content. The intent is to provide a succinct analysis of the “why” behind the study you read in the published material. It should be based on your opinion of why the author(s) believed the study was necessary and chose the particular methods of investigation used. Annotations might also include theories and conclusions postulated by the authors. An effective annotation includes the strengths of an article, but even better, the weaknesses or deficiencies as well.

The Assignment: INCLUDE THIS IN PAPER

Paper (2pages)

Section I

Summarize the health problem related to the particular community you identified for your Final Project.

Develop a research question related to a problem.

Provide a rationale for your selection of this question, along with supporting data.

Section II

Create an annotated bibliography of research related to this problem. In your annotated bibliography, include the following:

Six to eight resources on the identified public health problem related to the research question.

For each source, write a brief summary of the key points of the study. Include the problem, main research question, study type, and an analysis of the major findings. You may also include any information or notes that you believe are relevant and would be useful to you as you revisit your bibliography later.

An explanation of the problem areas and gaps in the existing research revealed by the annotated bibliography.

The majority of the resources should be primary research. Annotations should describe relevancy and timeliness and should indicate whether the research is primary or secondary.

Write a 500-750 word description of your proposed capstone project topic. Make sure to include the following:

The problem, issue, suggestion, initiative, or educational need that will be the focus of the project

The setting or context in which the problem, issue, suggestion, initiative, or educational need can be observed.

A description providing a high level of detail regarding the problem, issue, suggestion, initiative, or educational need.

Impact of the problem, issue, suggestion, initiative, or educational need on the work environment, the quality of care provided by staff, and patient outcomes.

Significance of the problem, issue, suggestion, initiative, or educational need and its implications to nursing.
