Servant leadership and internal consistency

Provide a response of at least 50 words to below response in apa format witn in-text citations:

The concept of internal consistency between words and actions is called integrity. Leadership integrity has been defined as the perceived pattern of alignment between the leader’s words and deeds or the extent that leaders are seen as practicing what they preach (Leroy, 2012). I have had occasion to witness this type of leadership behavioral integrity many times during my practicum experiences from my preceptor over the past 9 weeks. Since she assumed the role of CNO in her organization in 2017, she has espoused the importance of compassionate care, teamwork, collaboration and the critical role of RNs in the rehabilitation of patients. During countless meetings at all levels, with employees from all departments of the organization, I have witnessed her providing support, guidance, nonjudgmental critique and a willingness to roll up her sleeves and work alongside nurses to get the job done. The text states that the greatest threat to the servant leader is the craving for power (DelHousaye, 2004). I would argue that power is not something that needs to be craved, even by servant leaders, for they possess it already. The danger in power lies in how it is utilized. We all possess power in some form. When used with others in mind and for the good of others, power can be a positive thing. When used with integrity, honesty and charity, power can be a leadership tool.

Original Question:   

Servant leaders must be internally consistent with their words and actions. Describe a mentor that you have had that displayed this kind of credibility. Share an example of what you witnessed from this person. Based on the text, contrast your response to the secular view of power.

Case Scenario

Ms. G., a 23-year-old diabetic, is admitted to the hospital with a cellulitis of her left lower leg. She has been applying heating pads to the leg for the last 48 hours, but the leg has become more painful and she has developed chilling.

Subjective Data Complains of pain and heaviness in her leg. States she cannot bear weight on her leg and has been in bed for 3 days. Lives alone and has not had anyone to help her with meals.

Objective Data Round, yellow-red, 2 cm diameter, 1 cm deep, open wound above medial malleolus with moderate amount of thick yellow drainage Left leg red from knee to ankle Calf measurement on left 3 in > than right Temperature: 38.9 degrees C Height: 160 cm; Weight: 83.7 kg

Laboratory Results WBC 18.3 x 10¹² / L; 80% neutrophils, 12% bands Wound culture: Staphylococcus aureus

Critical Thinking Questions What clinical manifestations are present in Ms. G and what recommendations would you make for continued treatment? Provide rationale for your recommendations. Identify the muscle groups likely to be affected by Ms. G’s condition by referring to “ARC: Anatomy Resource Center.” What is the significance of the subjective and objective data provided with regard to follow-up diagnostic/laboratory testing, education, and future preventative care? Provide rationale for your answer. What factors are present in this situation that could delay wound healing, and what precautions are required to prevent delayed wound healing? Explain.

Developing an Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) Project Question


Developing an Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) Project Question

Consider issues related to your nursing practice. What stands out to you about your specialty area? What questions or concerns do you think are especially in need of attention? Why? How would you most like to contribute to the knowledge base of your profession?

The EBP Project provides a significant opportunity for furthering the nursing profession. Formulating a specific, applicable question is a necessary first step for developing your project. The question defines the focus of the EBP Project and guides your selection of research methods and tools. Think about aspects of your specialty area and begin to formulate a question that relates to your nursing practice.

The primary purpose of this Discussion is to provide a forum in which you and your colleagues can support each other in cultivating a practice-related question.

To prepare: Develop      your EBP Project question using the PICO (patient group, issue      or intervention, comparison, outcome) method as described in Chapter 2      of Clinical Research for the Doctor of Nursing Practice (p.      29) and other resources. Depending on your specialty area, you may modify      the PICO method as necessary to be appropriate for your target population. Begin      to complete the “Literature Review Matrix,” reviewing at least four to six      research articles relevant to your specialty area and      your EBP Project question. Note any areas of difficulty that you      encounter, as well as any strategies or insights that might be beneficial      to others. Reflect      on the information presented in the McCurry, Revell, and Roy article      listed in the Learning Resources. What      questions or concerns, if any, do you have about how to develop your      project question and/or expand your expertise in your specialty area?

By tomorrow 08/28/18 10pm write a minimum of 550 words in APA format with at least 3 scholarly references from the list of required readings below. Answer the questions as numbered below:

Post a cohesive scholarly response that addresses the following:

1) Share your project question, as you have developed it thus far (Write the questions exactly as the PIICOT Template provided in the attached file area).

2) Discuss salient elements that inform your project question: theory, current research, nursing practice, and specialty knowledge.

3) Pose any questions or concerns you may have related to developing your project question or literature review. You may also include any other issues related to expanding your expertise within your specialty area.

Developing a vision for SLMC would be important to the healthcare professionals and the patients and community. With the stated vision of SLMC as becoming a national leader for excellence and innovation, I believe a functional leadership would be required at this facility. The functional organizational strategy is one is which collaboration takes place within the facility between leadership and other team members. Also, collaboration takes place between the facility and the community. Bøllingtoft states that a successful organization named conveyed four specific attributes into their successful leadership organizational strategy, those included are as follows: “Relationship specific assets, knowledge sharing routines, complementary resources and skills and effective governance” (Bøllingtoft, 2019). These four attributes likely would be successful SLMC. The facility can be improved through understanding what is needed from the community and the shared governance approach facility wide.

While hoping to implement a motivating climate and atmosphere at SLMC, I would try to incorporate facility-wide incentives for nursing and other medical professionals. A clinical ladder aspect that provides monetary incentives for nurses whom reach higher education and whom are actively involved in committees could help increase positivity. Additionally, I would like to always encourage knowledge and advancement in the facility and within ones’ career. An article in the Scandinavian Journal of Caring Sciences states that reduction in educational opportunities and professional training had negative effects on employees’ satisfaction overall (Halldorsdottir, Einarsdottir, & Edvardsson (2018). My leadership style would be one which encourages people to shoot for a greater goal, to accomplish something bigger and expand their knowledge set continuously. The world and technology are always changing and to ensure SLMC in an innovative leader and excellent provider, the staff must be competent and aware of the newest trends available to the patients and community.

Model and Security Policy


Model and Security Policy

Increasingly patients are creating and maintaining personal health  records (PHRs) with data from a variety of healthcare providers as well  as data they have generated about their health. What provisions should  be included in a model privacy and security policy that patients might  use in making decisions related to their privacy and the security of  their PHRs?
