Step 4: Create a draft implementation plan.

Reflection

Quality, Change, and Self-Assessment 

This reflection is comprised of 2 sections, collectively totaling a minimum of 500 words. 

 

Complete your reflection by responding to all prompts. 

 

1) Quality and Change in Health Care

Change in health care is often related to quality. There are three organizations that are the major driving forces of the current emphasis on quality. 

 

Explore each of the organizations listed below. 

 

Reflect upon the focus, mission, vision, and values for each and the impact each organization has on your nursing practice. 

 

2) Handling Conflict: Self-Assessment

Workplace conflict is unavoidable. Although it tends to have a negative connotation, it can be a positive catalyst for change. Conflict can and should be effectively managed by everyone at every level of the organization. 

 

This self-assessment is designed to make you more aware of how you could and do handle conflict at work. 

 

Complete the Conflict Self-Assessment from Box 23-2 in Chapter 23 of Leading and Managing in Nursing.

 

Read the information from Boxes 23-3, 23-4, 23-5, 23-6, 23-7, and 23-8 to see some of the appropriate uses for each approach. As you read, think about times when you have applied each approach effectively or ineffectively.

 

Use the totals from your self-assessment to stimulate your thinking about how you do and could handle conflict at work.

  • Does your pattern of frequency tend to be consistent, or inconsistent, with the types of conflicts you face? That is, does your way of dealing with conflict tend to match the situations in which that approach is most useful? Why or why not?

 

Note: Three  references, format your in-text citations and references as per APA guidelines. Use the APA Style Guide, 7th Edition.

 

Submit your reflection.

As you learned in NSGCB/416: Theoretical Development and Conceptual Frameworks, theory-guided practice improves patient outcomes because of purposeful systematic application. As you grow in the nurse leader role, you will see that the same holds true for theory -guided leadership. This assessment is designed to link leadership theory to practice and connect your past and current experience to help you grow as a leader.

 

 Complete the Leadership Theories in Practice worksheet. 

 

Review the leadership theories on pages 9-11 and Gardner’s Tasks of Leading/Managing on pages 14-15 in Leading and Managing in Nursing. 

 

Complete the table. 

 

Summarize the main points of the theory in your own words in the Summary Definition column. 

 

Provide an example where you witnessed the theory in practice or suggest a situation where it could be applicable in the Practice Example column. Do not restate the Application to Practice column in the textbook; provide a unique example or suggest a possible scenario. 

 

Correlate at least one of Gardner’s task to the theory and practice example in the last column. 

 

Use at least five in-text citations in the table to support your summaries, practice examples, or application of Gardner’s Tasks. In the References section below the table, create an APA-formatted list to cite each resource.

 

 Include a reference list and format it per APA guidelines.
