Assessment 1 Instructions: Community Resources and Best Practices
You will develop a presentation consisting of 8-10 slides for the leaders of a health care organization or community-based care delivery service in which you explore current organizational or community resources for a specific situation related to care delivery.
Note: Complete the assessments in this course in the order in which they are presented.
To affect quality care coordination as a leader in practice, you have to understand the outcomes you want to achieve, the best practice that supports the outcomes, the related legal and ethical concerns and how to determine recommendations to produce the outcomes. This includes collaboration with the interprofessional team, data use, and the ability to communicate clearly and precisely.
Note: Complete the assessments in this course in the order in which they are presented.
This assessment requires you to create a presentation and record a voice-over track or video of you presenting it to an audience. For tips on creating a PowerPoint presentation, refer to the Effective Presentations section in the Resources for this assessment. Refer to the Using Kaltura tutorials to learn how to use Kaltura to record your presentation.
Note: Remember that you can submit all, or a portion of, your work to Smarthinking for feedback, before you submit the final version for this assessment. However, be mindful of the turnaround time of 24–48 hours for receiving feedback, if you plan on using this free service.
As you prepare to complete this assessment, you may want to think about other related issues to deepen your understanding or broaden your viewpoint. You are encouraged to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend, or a member of your professional community. Note that these questions are for your own development and exploration and do not need to be completed or submitted as part of your assessment.
The quality of care coordination outcomes may depend upon efficient use of health care information systems.
• How do you start to assess the needs of a community related to care coordination when you think about outcomes?
Legal and ethical implications of implementing or changing any care coordination practice can have far-reaching effects.
• As you think about improving care in the community with enhanced interprofessional coordination, what types of ethical and legal issues come to mind if care coordination does not improve?
Using health care information systems to effect change is critical to creating quality outcomes. A leader in practice for care coordination needs to be able to measure and evaluate change using data.
You will develop a presentation for the leaders of a health care organization or community-based care delivery service in which you explore current organizational or community resources for a specific situation related to care delivery. Your presentation will include either voice-over or video of you speaking about your presentation to the audience. Your slides should include bulleted points (one line each) that highlight your points for each topic. Your slides should not be text-intensive; put all the details in the speaker notes. You will make a presentation for the leaders of a health care organization or community-based care delivery service in which you look at the current organizational or community resources for a specific care delivery situation. Either a voice-over or a video of you talking about your presentation will be part of your presentation. Your slides should have one-line bullet points that show what you want to say about each topic. Don’t put a lot of text on your slides; put all the information in the speaker notes.
PRESENTATION FORMAT AND LENGTH
At a minimum, your presentation must include the following slides:
• Purpose (the reasons for your presentation).
• A specific situation related to care delivery and current organizational or community resources.
• The legal and ethical issues that can occur due to the current practice.
• Recommendations for improvement and a comparison to current practice.
• An evidence-based intervention.
• Explanation of data use and interprofessional support.
• References (at the end of your presentation).
The content of your presentation should consist of 8–10 slides, not including the title, purpose, and references slides. Do not exceed 10 slides as this could create problems for submitting your work to SafeAssign.
Note: You may vary from the suggestion above, but you must meet all the criteria listed below. Please read the full instructions carefully.
In your presentation:
• Cite 5–7 sources of credible, scholarly, or professional evidence to support your analysis and recommendations.
• List your sources on the references slide.
You may use Microsoft PowerPoint or any other suitable presentation software to create your slides. If you elect to use an application other than PowerPoint, check with your faculty to avoid potential file compatibility issues.
Use the speaker’s notes section of each slide to develop your talking points and cite your sources, as appropriate. If you need help designing your presentation, you are encouraged to review the various presentation resources provided for this assessment. These resources will help you to design an effective presentation, whether you choose to use PowerPoint or other presentation software.
You have the option of either recording a voice-over track for your presentation or creating a video of you speaking about your presentation to the audience. In the latter, the presentation will be in the background and you will be on camera. In either case, you may use Kaltura or similar software for your audio or video recording. If using Kaltura, refer to the Using Kaltura tutorials for directions on recording and uploading your media in the courseroom.
Note: If you require the use of assistive technology or alternative communication methods to participate in this activity, please contact DisabilityServices@Capella.edu to request accommodations.
