you remember from BIOS251, one of the fundamental principles of Anatomy and Physiology is the interdependence of all body systems and how the proper function of one system is intimately tied to the proper function of other organ systems, and ultimately the overall homeostasis of the human body.
For the Week 8 discussion of BIOS256, I would like you to go back in time. Think back to previous sessions and consider the various organs and organ systems that were discussed in BIOS251, BIOS252, and BIOS255. Choose one of the following organs or organ systems:
Blood and hemodynamics
After you have chosen one of the above organs or organ systems, discuss how it is intricately connected to any of the major topics that were covered this session in BIOS256. How are these systems integrated? How do they work together to contribute to the overall homeostasis of the human body?
For example, in week 1 and 2 we discussed the digestive system, and the importance of intrinsic factor to red blood cell production. One approach would be to discuss the connection between dietary absorption of intrinsic factor, its relationship to vitamin B12, and the maintenance of a healthy hemato
Regardless of political affiliation, individuals often grow concerned when considering perceived competing interests of government and their impact on topics of interest to them. The realm of healthcare is no different. Some people feel that local, state, and federal policies and legislation can be either helped or hindered by interests other than the benefit to society.
Consider for example that the number one job of a legislator is to be reelected. Cost can be measured in votes as well as dollars. Thus, it is important to consider the legislator’s perspective on either promoting or not promoting a certain initiative in the political landscape.
Review the Resources and reflect on efforts to repeal/replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
Consider who benefits the most when policy is developed and in the context of policy implementation.
Post an explanation for how you think the cost-benefit analysis in terms of legislators being reelected affected efforts to repeal/replace the ACA. Then, explain how analyses of the voters views may affect decisions by legislative leaders in recommending or positioning national policies (e.g., Congress’ decisions impacting Medicare or Medicaid). Remember, the number one job of a legislator is to be re-elected. Please check your discussion grading rubric to ensure your responses meet the criteria.
In 2014 there was a major outbreak of Ebola in western Africa. Healthcare workers from around the world responded and were subsequently exposed, some losing their life to the disease. There was widespread concern from home countries about the possible spread of this disease out of the quarantined area and globally. Such epidemics are a health thread that stretches well beyond the initial outbreak site. This has occurred also with SARS, Bird Flu, and MERS. With the easy and speed of global transportation, it has increased the likelihood of an outbreak spreading even before it has been established that it is a threat. In addition to infectious disease threats, there are other emergencies that threaten the health of a community, state, or country such as natural disasters, bioterrorism, chemical emergencies, blast injuries, radiation emergencies, etc). This means that countries and local communities must be prepared to protect the health of the citizens.
You will assume the role of a new healthcare worker for the CDC. You will investigate the risks, needs, resources, and services that would be needed in the case of a widespread outbreak in a community of your choice. This will include:
assessing the community
determining the possible risks and weak points in the health system
determining the current and needed resources and services
developing a plan of action in the event of an outbreak or emergency either from within the country or from a global source.
You will have one deliverable. A oral report (powerpoint) given to the local community leaders, that addresses the points above.
Welcome to the discussion. In this course you will be introduced to a topic in the discussion. The first week of the module you will write about your initial thoughts after reviewing the resources. The initial post should be at least 300 words.
During the following week you will reply to at least two of your classmates. The replies should be at least 100 words. See the discussion rubric for more details on grading.
Discussions should always be completed prior to “class.” If you are in an online class or an on ground course this is prior to the lesson portion of the week. Are you ready to begin?

Question 4 in the scenario asks what you do when you are forced to shift your allocation method in process, and you have people lined up outside waiting. Well, what would you do?
What challenges may occur with collaboration? Give an example of the importance of interprofessional teamwork.
Be sure to apply concepts from the readings and research. You must cite (with reference) at least one source: your textbook, scholarly resources, or ATI textbook (no blogs, Wiki, or other school of nursing website) in current APA Style.

An 11-month-old girl, well-known to your clinic since birth, arrives for a well-child visit. The parents report that their baby drags her legs rather than crawling on both hands and legs. They are concerned that this is abnormal. The father says that the child only recently began crawling and she does not pull to a stand. You noted at her 6-month visit that she was not rolling over or sitting; previous visits were unremarkable as was the mother’s pregnancy and vaginal delivery. While examining the baby, you note that when she is held by the axillae her legs are extended and crossed (i.e. the “scissoring” posture).

The Process of Two-Way Communication . . . .
How will you keep the lines of communication open when a student disagrees with your grading?
What is your approach?
How do your own non-verbals send a message?
What does the tone of your voice ‘say’ to the student?
How will you stay student focused vs. teacher focused? Jeanne
SCENARIO: Your supervisor has approved your research question and plan for studying some aspect of diversity and/or collaboration in a community group. Now it is time to conduct your literature review and develop your hypothesis and research plan.
ASSIGNMENT: In the first Touchstone, you developed a research question and prepared a preliminary bibliography for your literature review. You will now conduct your literature review, formulate your hypothesis and research plan, and develop a set of notecards that summarize your work.
REQUIREMENTS: You must create 8-11 notecards using the touchstone template below. Your notecards will include:
research question card
literature review (4–6 cards)
operational definitions card (if needed)
research method card
Next term you will begin the actual implementation of the program evaluation. What statistical analyses will you need to conduct in order to determine the effectiveness of your programs? Be sure to address each program; include the measurement scale of the variables that you will be analyzing as well as the statistics needed to analyze the data.
