Assignment: Make sure to review the Module Overview on the Module 1 home page before responding to the Discussion question. Outline the first three things/steps you will do as you begin your
investigation. For example, will you begin by doing some research about
the disease? Or would you begin by interviewing Sara? Would you
interview someone at the agency? If so, who? Or would you do something
else? Please explain your rationale. Home Page:Throughout the course, you will be expected to incorporate several
information resources from different media (such as professional and
scholarly sources, educational videos, news broadcasts and articles,
consumer information sources, and interviews with health professionals)
to this project and to evaluate the relative merits of competing
resources with respect to the expectations of this project.
Foundation for this Project
Congratulations! You have been hired as Assistant Manager of a Home
Health Care Agency. The agency offers a wide range of skilled medical
services such as nursing care, physical therapy, occupational therapy
from qualified medical professionals. The agency also provides home
health aide services including assistance with activities of daily
living, such as bathing and eating.
Your supervisor told you that she recently received a call from an
advocate whom an employee consulted via the Employee Assistance Program
because the employee felt that she had been treated unfairly after
contracting an illness. She explained that a few months ago, one of your
agencyâ??s home health aides, Sara, became ill. Sara had been coughing
for approximately six weeks, lost weight without trying, had no
appetite, was having difficulty sleeping, and had an intermittent fever.
She became concerned and went to see a healthcare professional who
diagnosed her with active tuberculosis (TB).
Sara missed a lot of time from work while completing treatment for
TB. Her physician cleared her to return to work after she was no longer
contagious. Upon returning to work, Sara felt isolated because her boss
and co-workers refused to spend time with her. She heard that someone
from the agencyâ??s Human Resources Department told her co-workers her
diagnosis. The stressful circumstances at work became even worse when
another home health aide started to display the same symptoms Sara had.
Your supervisor has asked you to review the entire situation and how
it was handled by the agency. Each module includes information about
epidemiology, health statistics, public health, health communication and
advocacy, health literacy, healthcare delivery systems, the Affordable
Care Act, ethical considerations, human resources management, legal
aspects, cultural and global perspectives, and financial considerations
for the organization.
Your methodology over the next few weeks will be to arrange
interviews with the relevant individuals, departments, and agencies, in
addition to researching professional and scholarly sources, educational
videos, and news articles. You will evaluate the information you gather
throughout the course of your investigation in order to determine the
best course of action. Ultimately, the information will be used to
formulate policies and create an employee education presentation. Expectations: 1 page, 3 cited sources from required reading. Required Reading
