Week 1 Journal Entry: Assess your current leadership skills and specify three leadership character traits you possess.
APPROACHES TO FAMILY NURSING
Discuss from your nursing experience an intervention you used with a family using each of the 4 types of approaches:
1. Family as Context
Focuses on the assessment and care of an individual patient in which the family is the context.
Individual is in the foreground and the family is in the background
Family serves as context for the individual as a resource or stressor (so the family can be either anegative or positive context).
An example of this would be in the care of children under 18. Physician rounds are generally “family centered” and done with the focus on the patient, but with discussion with both the patient and the parents or caregivers.
** For the Approaches to Family Nursing Assignment, think of a time in your clinical practice or with your own particular family when one of the members of the family needed health care and other members of the family were involved in that person’s health care needs. Explain who the family member in need of health care was, what was the condition of the family member, health problem, and health care needs. What roles did each family member take in helping care for the individual family member?
2. Family as Client
Assesses all family members
The nurse is interested in the way all the family members are individually affected by the health/hospitalization of one member of the family unit.
The family is in the foreground.
Focus is on every member of the family.
An example of could be when a beloved matriarch of the family gets a grave diagnosis, the nurse would ask the patient how her family was dealing with the diagnosis? How are the members of your family adjusting to this news? Will the care you will need be a problem for your family?
**For the Approaches to Family Nursing Assignment, think of a time in your clinical practice or with your own particular family when one family member suffered from a health care problem and as a result other members of the family developed health care needs. Describe the health needs of all of the family members and the overall affects of the family members’ illness on the rest of the family.
3. Family as System
The family as a whole is the patient. The focus is on the individual and the family simultaneously.
Interactions between family members become the target for nursing interventions.
Emphasis is on the interactions between the family members.
Runs on the theory that when something happens to one part of the system, the other parts of the system are affected as well (if one member of the family becomes ill, then the other members of the family are affected as well).
For example, when a child is diagnosed with cancer, the nurse may ask the father, what has changed between you and your wife since the diagnosis? How has this devastating diagnosis affected this child’s siblings?
**For the Approaches to Family Nursing Assignment, describe how the family interacts with one another when one family member becomes ill. Describe the types of interactions that occur such as one family member is in denial, one family member is crying and panicking, one family member becomes the caregiver, and so forth. Base your answer on your practice or your personal experience.
4. Family as Component of Society
Looks at the family as a component of society.
The family as a whole interacts with other institutions to receive, exchange, or give communication or services.
This is a major aspect of Community Health nursing.
Examples of this may include suggesting a support group for a patient/family for their disease, or asking how “society” (those outside of their family) have reacted to their diagnosis.
**For the Approaches to Family Nursing Assignment, describe how one family used a variety of community resources to help them care for a family member who has become ill or who has been diagnosed with a health care problem. What resources did the family use or seek? What were the results? How effective were the healthcare resources for the family and the ill family member? What problems were encountered when the family tried to obtain community resources?

As Director of Health Information for a large health system, you have been tasked as a key leader in the selection and implementation of a new electronic health record (EHR) system for the organization. The CEO and Board of Directors has asked that you address key issues related to the process of selecting and adopting an EHR system. Please follow the instructions below in completion of this assignment.
Review the following:
Contracting guidelines and checklist for electronic health record (EHR) vendor selection. The National Learning Consortium (NLC). Retrieved from http://www.healthit.gov/sites/default/files/contracting-guidelines-and-checklist-for-ehr-vendor-selection.docx
EHR contracts untangled. The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology. Retrieved from https://www.healthit.gov/sites/default/files/facas/HITJC_EHR_Contract_Guide_2016-10-05.pdf
Choose either the RFI and/or RFP for the systems selection process to base your work on. Select at least five (5) content elements of the RFI and/or RFP that you would need to include in order to assist in the selection process.
List 5 items that you would require in a vendor contract for an EHR. Explain how you would evaluate these items and the vendor information so that you would be sure to make a wise and informed system selection.
Conduct an internet search for “EHR contract negotiation” and determine important leadership skills for contract negotiations. Write 1–2 paragraphs describing what you have learned and how you would implement these necessary skills.
Confidentiality, Privacy and Security
As Director of Health Information for a large health system, you have been tasked as a key leader in the selection and implementation of a Decision Support System for the organization. The CEO and Board of Directors has asked that you develop a plan to train staff on the value and purpose of the use of this technology.
Develop educational programs for employees in privacy, security, and confidentiality.
Develop a PPT to be used for training new staff in the purpose and value of using informatics for decision support. The training should be specific to the ways that information should be used in decision making. The PPT should include 15–20 slides, and a reference slide at the end with a minimum of 3 resources. Your textbook must be one of the references.
