Select a topic from the list below [must be different topic from the one you chose for Assignment #l] or clear a topic with the instructor beforehand.
The purpose of this assignment is to raise the awareness of a specific employee group in a specific health care setting regarding a potentially critical aspect of their responsibilities. Target the right issue, the correct employee population. In other words you are either a head nurse or senior administrator thus your discussion should be as if you were lecturing specific employees on their specific responsibilities and the specific consequences of failing in those responsibilities.
For example: The False Credentials paper issue would be for HR offices while the Critical Event might be for operating room technicians. Patient Treatment Consent might be a good paper for a Palliative Care Organization or an Oncology Clinic discharge planning staff. The paper must discuss accurate information for the setting with full consideration of the relevant state and federal laws with citations that are accessible by the instructor. The paper can ask questions and use graphics to deliver certain points of information but the graphics must be an addendum to the paper and not in the body of the paper. -1pt if I have to reformat the paper because of inclusion of graphics in body of paper. The paper should include in its conclusion “For more information about this issue…” and include a reference or references in your Conclusion.

1. Purpose of Paper, topic chosen, applicable Federal and/or state laws
State the purpose of the paper and discuss why you chose the particular topic, and provide the official title of the applicable federal and/or state law, the statute and section number. Must be either a federal/state statute and you must cite both, if applicable. Thus if there is both a federal and state law that covers the subject you selected, then you must cite both the applicable federal and a state law. Summarize in this paragraph the relevant language from the law that applies to your issue. If there is a relevant health care organizational policy that you can find, then please add that also. Do not assume that there is just a federal and or state law. In most cases there is both a federal and state law. You must use the laws cited in this section throughout the rest of the paper.
