Comment 1

One weakness that I have with regards to professional presentations is pressured speech and tendency to skip information because of pressure and timing. All the “professional presentations” (nursing school) that I have been in, there is always a time limit. I then feel that I need to talk faster to be able to present all the information. If I feel the audience knows some of the information, then I will skip some bullet points and move on to another. I have come to realize this takes away from other individual’s learning experience. One personal strength that I have with regards to professional presentations is enthusiasm. No matter what the topic, I always put 100% into all my work. This information could change someone life. I also like to personalize the presentation in some way or another. Your personal experience could help someone in the future, or spark inspiration in someone to achieve one of their dreams.

One method of improvement for my weakness would include patience and non-assumption. I need to understand that the information being presented is important and to take time to present the material. I need not to assume that everyone’s knowledge base is the same, and need to present all the information that is one the PowerPoint. Working on these methods will make me as an individual seem more professional and that I have knowledge about the topic. Why would someone take information and use it in their practice if the presenter is unsure of themselves? One method of improvement for my strength would be limiting my personal experiences and know that not everything you say will change a situation forever. Too much personal experience takes away from the validity and importance of the presentation. Not every presentation will change a life, but it could expand their knowledge and understanding.

Professional presentations are not my favorite topic, I do not like being center of attention by any means. I tend to get nervous and anxious when I have to get in front of a group of people or present to an audience. One of my weaknesses giving professional presentations is my speech, I talk very fast when I get nervous, sometimes forgetting what just came out of my mouth and repeating myself. One way to improve this would be to create an outline of my presentation, write down notes on note cards, numbering each note card, turning them over after each point is covered, to make sure I do not repeat myself. Practicing the presentation in front of other people would also help reduce my anxiety. However, one of my strengths is using power point presentations and other visual aids. I enjoy being creative, using designs, graphs, and clip art to communicate important points. I have also found, that when I use power points in my presentations, it takes away some of the anxiety and fear that I am feeling. I am no longer the center of attention in my professional presentation, the power point I created becomes the focus.

It is important that I work on my speech and presentation, if I want to present my findings in a more formal setting, so other professionals will visualize me as being strong confident in my knowledge. Part of professional presentations, is understanding your audience, and determining what they want and expect to get from your presentation (Mind Tools, 2019). I know from experience, when presenters come across as nervous and anxious, the audience becomes bored and loses interest. A professional presentation, should engage an audience and make them feel important, providing information in a well-structured format, identifying key points, and using examples to support findings. Reading from note cards and a lecture, can also detour audiences from being engaged, losing their interest.  According to Mind Tools (2019) “you owe it to yourself, and your organization, to develop the skills you need to present your ideas clearly, purposefully, engagingly, and confidently” (p. 1). It would me in my best interest to take a class on public speaking, to help decrease my anxiety and give me the confidence and skills to become a better speaker and presenter.

Two potential barriers that may prevent my EBP change proposal from continuing past the 6 months to one-year interval would be time devoted to implementation and preparation and knowledge of the EBP being implemented according to Ginex (2018).

Time should be devoted to preparation of the staff and unit and also  including knowledge of why this practice is being changed or improved. The benefits to the staff and patients regarding this EBP should be clear and focused. Time should be allocated to questions and education regarding the concept. Provide opportunity for stakeholders to offer input and observations regarding the implementation.

 According to Ginex (2018), behavior change is not easy. It takes persistence, determination, and a readiness to be open to new options along the way. Working together will promote positive outcomes for both patients and ourselves.

Strategies for overcoming these barriers are according to Wyant (2017) include development of EBP models that address the clinical problem and an approach to ongoing practice change. Wyant (2017) refers to the Iowa Model of Evidence-Based Practice to Promote Quality Care, the Advanced Research and Clinical Practice Through Close Collaboration Model, the Johns Hopkins Nursing Evidence-Based Practice Model, and the Promotion Action on Research Implementation in Health Services (PARIHS) Framework as examples of tools to help implement and EBP change. Each of the models address the sustainability of EBP through cultural change, stakeholder engagement, comprehensive literature review, barrier identification, and outcomes distribution.

Supporting a change can be interesting as well as difficult since many things can affect the process of changing. The two most critical potential barriers that may impact the evidence-based project is the patient’s attitude. A patient of urinary tract infection must involve himself/ herself in physical activity, but if the doctor is not allowing to perform any physical work, so the patient must stop doing it as it will be harmful to their health. The second most significant barriers that may impact the evidence-based project is the practice environment that is provided to the doctors.

I believe one of the most critical issues to support a change is to do self, require it from others and to maintain consistency. It seems very often, as judged from the practice at work, that supervisors are complacent and reluctant to require something from staff. I believe in the personal example, if needed to do it by self in the allocated time, then I can require it from others. For example, if management asked to do a procedure, the management must be ready to follow the procedure themselves and to remind staff to use the procedure over and over.

Sometimes doctors are not being facilitated by all the equipment to do the research and cannot find the solution of the new diseases. If doctors do not have enough knowledge of the disease, so it becomes difficult to suggest any solution to their diabetic patients. It is not easy to deal with such kind of barriers, but it is not impossible. One should try to communicate with patients more sensitively and try to convince them on our opinion and try earning their trust so that they can share every problem (Lyon, 2011). If a firm is unable to provide the equipment such as computers and machinery, then the doctors can launch awareness programs and should discuss more ideas with their trainees to have more possible solutions.

Jazz Week 6 Lymphatic and immune

 

Hernani Fermin, a 35-year-old married father, was diagnosed HIV positive two years ago.  He is a sales representative for a nationally recognized pharmaceutical company, and his hectic travel schedule is beginning to take a toll on his health.  A few weeks ago, his doctor suggested he rethink his career goals.  “You know, stress and this disease don’t mix,” Dr. Wettstein reminded him.  “Why don’t you look for something closer to home?”

That evening over dinner his wife Emily suggested teaching.  Hernani had enjoyed sharing the challenging concepts of math and science with seventh graders during the 6 years he had taught in a rural school upstate.  It was only the financial demands of Kim and Kilie’s birth 7 years ago that had tempted him into the better-paying field of pharmaceuticals.

Hernani sent out resumes for the next 5 weeks.  Finally, one was well received by South Hills Middle School.  They had an opening in their math department, plus a need for someone to coach after-school athletics, and they wanted to meet with him.  He hadn’t interviewed since the twins were born.  He thought about the questions normally asked-would there be some questions about his health?  Being HIV positive shouldn’t have any bearing on his ability to teach, but parents might be concerned about having him coach.  And it might disqualify him for the school’s health insurance policy.  Hernani believed in honesty, but what would happen if he revealed his HIV status?

Do you think Hernani should reveal his HIV status to South Hills Middle School?  If so, why?  If not, why not?  What laws protect Hernani or the students?

In this assignment you will create a spreadsheet and a chart to help a hypothetical couple work out their budget. You will submit a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet following the directions below to the appropriate submission folder by the due date. You will name this file W4P_LastName.xlsx.
Please Note:Information to help you with this project is available in the Week 4 online lectures, your textbook, as well as Microsoft Excel Help (F1). Your professor is also a great resource. If you work ahead, you can post questions about this assignment in the Questions for the Professor area in Course Resources and still submit your assignment on time.
Scenario
Tom and Sally were trying to get a handle on their budget. They heard that MS Excel could help them with that.  Tom is going to school and has cut back on his hours. Sally has finished her associate’s degree and is working full time. They want to look at the last three months of their income and expenses to see where they can make changes.
Part I – The Spreadsheet
First, in an Excel Spreadsheet, create a budget to show Tom and Sally’s income, expenses, and money leftover each month (Net). Create formulas in your spreadsheet for your calculations using the following data:
Tom brought home $1,000 a month for January, February, and March. Sally brought home $1,900, $2,000, and $1,975 respectively for those three months. They paid $1,000 for rent and utilities each month. They paid $88 for insurance each month. They paid $60 for cell phones and $60 for Internet/TV each month. They spent $600, $750 (due to a big birthday bash), and $500 on food respectively. Their car payment and gas came to $225, $250, and $300 respectively. Entertainment and gifts were $75, $100, and $45 respectively. They paid a little extra on their credit card $150, $125, and $100 respectively. They allocated $200 each month for personal grooming and health care. They put $100 each month into savings. Miscellaneous Expenses came to $200, $100, and $400 respectively. A sample budget layout is included below as an example of one way to lay out a budget.

Part II – The Chart
Once you have worked out the budget spreadsheet, use the tabs at the bottom of the page to open another sheet. Here you will create a chart similar to the example below using the tools you learned about in the lectures and the textbook. On the new sheet:
Create a column chart to visually represent their monthly expenses. If you have a challenge getting the chart on this sheet, research how to move your chart using your reading or Help (F1). You might also try right clicking on the chart. Add a descriptive title to the chart.
Part III – Changing Values
Copy everything from Sheet 1 (the budget calculations) and paste it into a new worksheet. Change values for Sally’s March income to $200 more. Let’s say that they didn’t use as much heat in March and their utilities were $75 less (you could use a formula to figure out $75 less but you don’t have to). See how the totals change automatically if you used formulas correctly. If the values did not change, check your formulas and try them again. Seek help if you can’t figure this out. Rename each of your three spreadsheets with descriptive names. By the assigned due date, submit this budget to the appropriate submission folder. In the message box, share how the process of creating this went for you, including any challenges, successes, or insights.

Portofolio part 1 N

 

The Professional Portfolio

A professional portfolio is the evidence of your skills, achievements, and professional experience. Your résumé /CV. Portfolios come in two varieties: a Growth and Development portfolio is your main portfolio. It holds all evidence of your education and achievements and is for your eyes only, and a Best Work portfolio or Profile is a collection of materials you select from your Growth and Development portfolio for review by others for a specific purpose, such as a promotion or an award.

How do I use my portfolio?

 You’ll use your professional portfolio to plan your continuing education and professional development. You can also use your portfolio to market yourself. When applying for a career-ladder promotion, a new position, or admission to an education program, review your portfolio and select the appropriate materials for submission. You can do the same when you think you deserve an award or other recognition.

Several professional associations are either using portfolios for certification or developing a plan to do so. Also, several states have considered or are considering requiring a professional portfolio for re-licensure. So you may be using your portfolio to select evidence for these purposes, as well.

For the purpose of this course the following are the tags required for your professional portfolio:

Part 1 Professional letter examples. It is your cover letter, the one you send as an invitation to consider you as a candidate for work position, or research grant recipients as two examples of its use.
