In this assignment, you will use cost-benefit analysis and make a final recommendation as to whether or not the plan should be implemented. You will also propose a rationale for your recommendation.

Vila Health: Marketing Action Plan and Financial Analysis

Overview

You may recall attending team meetings where colleagues said, “I feel  this would be good for our patients,” or “I believe that this plan will  help to position our department as a leader,” or “if we could only get  this budget item approved, I am sure we would be successful.”  This week you will be challenged to move beyond speculation, and to  develop some basic financial skills to demonstrate the potential impact  of a marketing idea in a measurable manner so that the senior leadership  team can make a more informed decision. Quantitative and qualitative  elements are included, and you as an intern will now be prepared with  tools that assist in more objective decision making. One of these tools,  the cost-benefit analysis, has a wide variety of applications beyond  simply estimating the impact of marketing plan action steps or  interventions.

St. Anthony Medical Center’s Labor and Delivery service line is  challenged with growing the business using a market pull strategy. To  achieve this overarching goal, you will propose a marketing action plan  with accompanying proposed costs and benefits. Additionally, your plan  will need to include costs and benefits for each proposed intervention.

In this assignment, you will use cost-benefit analysis and make a  final recommendation as to whether or not the plan should be  implemented. You will also propose a rationale for your recommendation.  Use a cost-benefit analysis spreadsheet, either the one provided by the  finance director or another of your choosing, to analyze the financial  impact to the organization. Note: Distinguished  performance includes analysis of three alternatives over a three-year  time period. These alternatives include remaining status quo with  spending ($10,000 per year), reducing the budget by 10 percent, or  increasing the budget by 10 percent. Hint: Use of various social media can decrease costs and increase market reach.

Instructions

  1. Formulate the new St. Anthony Medical Center Labor and Delivery  revised service offering including features, advantages, and benefits to  consumers.
  2. Segment the market of targeted labor and delivery consumers, using a  table that matches features and benefits to each consumer segment (for  example, age, culture, and so forth; expectant single teens, culturally  diverse groups in the community, mid-career married working women, same  sex partners seeking in vitro fertilization, and so forth).
  3. Create a plan of action comprised of marketing communication  channels to reach each customer segment (for example, Web sites, social  media, radio, TV, signage, health fairs, events, collaborative  partnerships, targeted mailings, free educational offerings, and so  forth).
  4. Explain costs and benefits for each marketing communication channel  intervention by using Plowman’s cost-benefit analysis tool from this  unit’s studies, linked in Resources. Hint: Remember to identify costs and benefits; Recall that the total cost of the action plan cannot exceed $10,000 per year.
  5. Make a recommendation as to whether or not the organization should  proceed with the proposed interventions, and provide rationale.

Submit your analysis and recommendations by Sunday of this week. Be sure to use current APA style and formatting throughout.

##IMPORTANT NOTE BY PROF–

Hello hope all is well! 

Regarding week 6 assignment,your budget is $10,000 dollars. You are not to exceed this per the below instructions:

  1. Explain  costs and benefits for each marketing communication channel  intervention by using Plowman’s cost-benefit analysis tool from this  unit’s studies, linked in Resources. Hint: Remember to identify costs  and benefits; Recall that the total cost of the action plan cannot  exceed $10,000 per year. 

Also I would consider using the table from your assignment as your  discussion post allowing feedback on your budget plan by your peers.

Theoretical and Ethical

I need a 8 page paper. This paper is related to my previous paper and I will provide the paper once you accept this paper. The paper needs to be written in APA format. 

For this assignment, you will be further defining your Phenomenon of  Interest within a theoretical and ethical framework.  The same  Phenomenon of Interest (POI) identified in your first written paper  should also be used for this assignment.  You will begin this paper by  providing a concise description of your POI, this information should be a  short summary of information your presented in your first paper.
 

Next, you will  discuss the Fawcett’s Meta-paradigm of Nursing and  relate the paradigm directly to your POI. How do the four concepts  within the meta-paradigm relate to your POI? Is one more important? Do  all four have the same level of importance?  You should support this  section with peer reviewed references as appropriate.  Specifically  identify the components of the meta-paradigm within your discussion. Be  sure to reference the meta-paradigm with the primary source.
 

Then, you will select both a Grand nursing theory as well as a Middle  range nursing theory.  Take time to review several examples of each type  of theory as the selected theories need to “fit” your POI…and work  well together.
 

Grand  nursing theory discussion:  identify and discuss the  inter-related concepts from your selected theory.  What aspects of the  nursing meta-paradigm are addressed by your grand theory?  Then provide  information about how you will view your POI through the lens of the  grand theory.  How does the theory guide your assessment of the POI?   How does the theoretical framework chosen categorize or define your POI?  How does the theoretical framework effect your perception of the POI?
 

Middle range nursing theory discussion: identify and discuss the  inter-related concepts within the middle range theory.  What aspects of  the nursing meta-paradigm are addressed in the mid-range theory? How  will this theory guide your assessment/perception of the POI?  How does  this mid range theory relate to your grand theory?
 

Complexity science: how does complexity science relate to your POI?   Depending on the nature of your POI, this conversation may have  different foci for different students.  For example, if your POI is  glycemic management of the peri-operative patient, this discussion would  center on the complex responses of the human body as a Complex Adaptive  System.  If your POI is focused on a policy change issue, the focus may  be on organizational complexities with communication, change, etc.  Identify a specific Complex Adaptive System that is related to your  chosen POI and discuss how complexity science impacts this portion of  your POI.
 

Ethical framework:  you should discuss your specific POI in the context  of ethical principles.  Basic principles include autonomy, justice,  beneficence, and non-maleficence. Is your POI in violation of a core  ethical principle?  Is it possible it may be in violation?  What ethical  principles do you need to be sure to safeguard?  You should also  identify a specific Ethical Framework that will guide your  practice…Virtue ethics, Utilitarianism, the ANA Code of Ethics, are  examples of an ethical framework.
 

Conclusion:  this section should not contain any new information but  should only provide a summary of what what discussed in the paper.

Budget

Having a is critical for the financial stability of an organization. Keeping track of how well the organization is actually adhering to the budget, and subsequent identification of why the budget numbers are being missed is equally important. Without this critical “why” piece, it is difficult to make the necessary adjustments to the budget or to organizational behavior that might be promoting overspending.

A good budget is built with thoughtful consideration of future costs and revenue. Though your budget is formulated with expected figures in mind, the actual resulting values may vary considerably. This variance–from projected to actual–can be a pleasant surprise or a fiscal nightmare and can make financial decision making difficult. Fortunately, variance analysis can enable management to determine why variance occurred and what can be done to mitigate its effects.

Formula need to be shown with correct anwers

  • Use the Excel spreadsheet template for the Week 8 assignment
  • Show all your calculations and formulas in the spreadsheet.

perform multistep calculations of FTEs and projection of future FTE needs for a selected nursing unit

 Description of the Assignment 

This assignment is in two scenario-based sections each related to staffing budgets. In the first, the student will perform multistep calculations of FTEs and projection of future FTE needs for a selected nursing unit. The second section involves calculation of budget variance and its analysis. Each section requires supported written interpretation of findings.  

Criteria for Content

Answer the questions and complete the calculations required for the two sections of the assignment.

Key points related to Calculations:

  1. When performing calculations, standard rounding rules apply. If the number to the right of the decimal is less than 5, round down to the nearest whole number, e.g., 33.4 = 33 If the number to the right of the decimal is 5 or greater, round up to the nearest whole number, e.g. 33.5 =34.
  2. Read the question carefully. Pay close attention to the units be asked and keep them consistent. For example, hours vs FTEs; days vs months vs years.
  3. Provide ALL formulas with references. Designate which formula associates with which source. It is not sufficient to simply list the source at the beginning of the section. Write out the formula used BEFORE filling in the numbers.

Example: Efficiency Variance + Volume Variance + Cost Variance = Total Variance

Hospice Caregivers

APA format 1 page long 3 references  1 from walden university and please use one from the references below

This is for a MSN degree

Our team´s selected setting is Suncrest Home Care and Hospice located in rural Iowa.  The focus of our proposed curriculum is to provide hospice caregivers and patients with the education needed to adequately manage pain at the end-of-life.  The hospice nurse would provide the education to family, caregivers, and patients during their initial and follow up visits with patients.  Our audience will largely consist of mature learners at a highly emotional time, therefore I will look at strategies that fall under the adult learning theory.

          The first strategy I would apply is that of self-directed learning.  Initially, information would be provided to caregivers and patients, giving them the opportunity to review the education on their own time and develop questions, reinforcing that the information provided will be useful when caring for their hospice patient.  As stated by Keating, “adults are self-directed and will learn information that is useful and relevant to them” (Keating & DeBoor, 2018, p. 111).  This strategy allows the teacher to encompass the role of mentor or coach, encouraging active learning by the participants (Keating & DeBoor, 2018). 

            The second strategy I would utilize is that of hands-on, or direct demonstration and practice of skills.  As hospice care providers, medication management and symptom recognition are two very important skills to have when caring for a loved one at the end of life (Lau et al., 2009).  An example of utilizing this strategy, would be to utilize pillboxes to dispense medications, as well as keeping a log of symptoms in order to evaluate efficacy.  Adequate pain control and management is a Community Health Accreditation Partner (CHAP) hospice care standard (2018).  Although the hospice nurse will be available for support and as a guide, the main provider of symptom relief will be family or caregivers in the patient´s home; education that will increase medication management knowledge and skill is imperative to provide relief (Chi & Demiris, 2017).
