You will also be able to apply your communication skills and integrate multimediaelements to communicate your message to an audience. This milestone is due in Module Five.In developing this presentation, you will be able to use your analyses from the first part of this project as a starting point. The reflective nature of this activityprompts you to dig deeper and consider the implications posed by the critical analysis of your issue or event in diversity. How does studying diversity affect howyou understand yourself, as well as the world around you? Youll also be challenged to incorporate a dash of creativity to enhance your message.Multimedia Presentation: For the second part of the project, you will create a multimedia presentation that incorporates audio narration and visuals toarticulate how critically analyzing your issue/event in diversity impacts your own framework of perception and ability to constructively engage in society.PowerPoint: You are required to include a combination of text and visuals in order to support your PowerPoint presentation.

Create a 5-7 page report that will help the Director of Quality Management at Vila Health to understand the current trend of patient satisfaction numbers, and propose potential solutions to any problems. Demonstrating the organization’s ability to be respectful of and responsive to the needs of their consumers will in turn improve upon the quality and safety of the care being delivered, decrease costs, and increase provider satisfaction. Organizations that seek to remain relevant in the industry, improve business operations, continue to capture market share, and continue quality improvement efforts, should always be focused on establishing patient safety as an improvement priority. Patient safety should never fall off the improvement radar, as organizations can quickly suffer from the implications of declined satisfaction if they are not monitoring the needs of their consumers. Organizations that fail to prioritize patient satisfaction run the risk of losing business and reimbursements. Given that reimbursements are tied to patient satisfaction, quality, and outcomes, any organization wishing to remain relevant in the industry would make patient satisfaction a priority within their strategy. The quality improvement team is a diverse group of individuals who are tasked with carrying out improvement efforts. The team should include individuals who will be impacted by the improvement efforts being worked on. With this in mind, several teams may exist and be working on a variety of improvement efforts simultaneously within the organization. Each team is responsible for addressing the improvement initiative and tracking its progress toward achieving the anticipated improvement. Common tools utilized by the team include lean methodology, six sigma, DMAIC, value stream mapping, and fishbone diagrams. The fishbone diagram (also known as the cause-and-effect diagram) is a visual tool utilized to highlight potential causes of a problem, including delays in care, in order to determine the root causes (Kros

Writing Assignment Writing ServiceReflect on the course including what you have learned and can take away to use throughout your careers. However you choose to organize it, the paper should address the following prompt: What were the most important, significant or meaningful things you have learned from the class? Be specific and give examples from what we have read, done and discussed. Make sure to explain why these were significant to you. For example, they might apply to your past, current or future situation and/or they might also have helped you learned about yourself. Format: Single spaced, 1-inch global margins, page numbers, Times New Roman 12 point font, references in APA format.
It is common to hear that “eastern” and “western” religions are very different in character. Do you agree? For your final essay you should assess this claim through a comparison of a single feature common to at least two “eastern” religions (Confucianism, Taoism, Hinduism and Buddhism) and two “western” religions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam). For “eastern” religions you should discuss one Chinese (Confucianism or Taoism) and one Indian (Hinduism or Buddhism) religious tradition. One of the “western” religions you discuss must be Islam. Thus your essay will focus on a common theme but discuss it with regard to four distinct religions. Once again an excellent essay will not only draw on the description of these religious traditions in Smith but will give illustrations from the scriptures found in Van Voorst. In general, the more narrow your theme, the better the quality of your essay will be. Also in general, you need to choose a theme for which there is support in the scriptures included in the Van Voorst book, or scriptures you can readily identify in another authoritative source.

Geoflicks are regular theatrical movies that are focused on geologic events, usually some type of disaster. Some examples are: 2012, Volcano, Dantes Peak, The Core, and Jurassic Park. This is a web page with a few more ideas: http://reelgeology.blogspot.com/ . Id prefer you select a move that deals with some kind of geohazards like an earthquake, tsunami, or volcano. The SciFi channel has tons of really good (bad) geoflicks, and you could probably write a novel on one of those. Most geoflicks take great liberties with the basic science that forms the basis for the plot. What I hope to see from this assignment is that youve learned enough to recognize where these movies drift from reality and move towards fiction. This is where you get to show me that you can apply what youve learned in this class. I also hope this will give you some self-confidence in your understanding of this subject.
