Ethical Dilemma

Ethical Dilemma

Select a relatively current event that deals with one or more ethical dilemma. Compose and essay that addresses the ethical factors from an organizational perspective. National examples may include Department of Defense contracting events, Hurricane Katrina (or similar catastrophic events), election campaign funding, BP oil spill, or lobbyist operations. Local or state events may include nonprofit or public organizations. You may also use international events. Be sure to address the following requirements in your essay: 

 Identify the key stakeholders, and introduce the organization. 

 Summarize the context of the ethical dilemma with specific facts (who, what, where, when, why). 

 Using Svara’s (2007) problem-solving model (as depicted in this week’s lesson) as a point of reference, identify the selected ethical decisions and obligations. Be specific if the actions resulted in best consequences or a full, open and honest process projected to the public. 

 Identify implications that resulted in successful or unsuccessful future operations. 

 Summarize what you have learned from an analysis of this event. 

Your response should be at least 500 words in length (not including the references page) in APA style.

P4P Programs

P4P Programs

Since P4P has been around for a number of years, one would think that its effectiveness should be clearly documented. However, Peter Kongstvedt says that results have been mixed. He concludes that "positive results remain ambiguous, at least on a broad basis."

Review various P4P program results and effectiveness on the Internet or through your college's Online Library, which you can access in the Resources tab.

Write a 1-page report of your findings. Specifically, address strengths and weaknesses of this compensation method, both from the point of view of the health plan and the physician. Cite at least two sources. List sources in APA format.

The Myth Of Lobbyists

The Myth Of Lobbyists

Part I: Lobbyists have been part of the U.S. Government system since the early 1800s. Lobbyists play an important role in healthcare, as they are advocates for their interest group. In a 4-5 page paper, analyze two examples of how lobbyists affect healthcare legislation. Conclude your paper with your opinion about whether the actions of lobbyists have a positive or negative effect on healthcare legislation in the United States. Please keep in mind the position and facility you selected. Make sure to include the following:


  1. Discuss      the specific interest of the lobbyist in each example.
  2. Discuss      in detail some of the ethical issues and moral disputes for each example.
  3. Discuss      your position on whether the lobbyists' actions are positive or negative      on healthcare legislation in the United States and support your points      with details.
  4. This      portion of your assignment will require you to research and examine      information from various sources. Use a minimum of five credible sources      for your paper, with three being an academic source from the College Online Library (don't forget to include in-text citations      throughout your paper with paraphrasing or quoting)
  5. Make      sure to include your APA formatted reference page.

Part II: An agenda can set the tone for a meeting. It's an important tool to ensure meetings are staying on track and meeting all of the objectives. Create a detailed meeting agenda for a meeting you will hold with your supervisor and fellow department heads discussing your findings (Hint: Microsoft Word has many agenda templates). SkillSurfer in the online tutoring platform offers beginner, intermediate, and advanced tutorials on Microsoft Office products. Make sure to include the following in our agenda:


  1. Explain      each example
  2. The      majority of the agenda should be focused on whether the actions of      lobbyists have a positive or negative effect on healthcare legislation in      the United States.

Make sure to use audience specific language and tone in your agenda. Remember, your supervisor and other department heads will be in attendance. Also, make sure to follow proper agenda/business formatting guidelines and make sure document is professional in appearance.

    Assignment 2: Quality Of Work/Life Initiatives

    Lifestyle benefits or quality of work-life (QWL) issues are very important for achieving a competitive edge in efforts to attract and retain top talent. These benefits are a prominent feature of organizations consistently earning a place on various “Best Place to Work” listings.

    The workforce is clearly diverse, and there are many features of HR policies designed to capture the needs of a diverse workforce. The full range of work-life balance programs is meant to extend to all members of the workforce without any preference to age, gender, or family status. The competitive advantage of these programs is seen in recruitment, retention, and worker productivity.

    Using the Argosy University online library, the Internet and other resources for research, locate and explain a specific QWL benefit program of interest to you. Address the following questions in your response giving examples and rationale in support:


    • What are the main features of the program?
    • How might an organization formally assess whether the implementation of any of these QWL initiatives has been effective?
    • What was the most important or noticeable outcome resulting from the implementation of the benefits initiatives? In particular, are there specific pay model outcomes the organization might aim to impact through the use of QWL programs? In what way?

    Write your initial response in 3–4 paragraphs.
