Ashford 6: – Week 5 – Discussion 1
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your post and responses.
Imagine that you are a hospital’s compliance officer, and you are charged with making a presentation to your hospital’s board of directors regarding the moral right to healthcare. Your presentation should include at least three of the elements learned throughout this course, which could include, but are not limited to: the Code of Ethics, resource allocation, Stark Law, medical malpractice, and cultural competency. For this discussion, begin by creating a PowerPoint presentation that addresses the issue of the moral right to healthcare. Then, utilize the PowerPoint and create a presentation using a screencast program. Your presentation must include at least five slides (not including a cover slide and reference slide), utilize at least two scholarly sources, and be between 3 and 5 minutes long. Please post your references either on your last slide or within the discussion post. Please also post your link to your screencast as well as your actual PowerPoint presentation in the discussion forum.
Required Response I Due by Day 5: Imagine that you are one of the board members listening to your compliance officer’s presentation. Respond with a minimum of 150 words to at least two colleagues’ cases in an appropriate matter by addressing the following:
Give your overall impression of the presentation. Was it clear and understandable?
Examine at least three key points that were made in the presentation. Did these elements make sense? Could they be accepted by the hospital?
Challenge your colleague regarding his or her presentation by questioning one or more of the key points in the presentation. Your question should not be able to be answered with a yes or no. Use phrases such as, “How can we…” “What do you think the response would be to…” and similar notations.
Required Response II Due by Day 7: Your classmates will have posted questions to your original post. You are required to respond to their question in a scholarly manner. Use your research to support your response to the comments and question(s) they posed. Your response should be at least 100 words.
