assignments

Paper 1 – Advising Parents on LTCOptions (Completed Individually) – Links with Course Objectives 1, 2, 3, and 4

The purposes of this assignment are to help you a.) effectively use research resources through library data bases and search engines to complete course requirements, b.) improve your critical thinking skills, and c.) develop your effectiveness in applying long term care concepts, programs, and services to a real life situation for millions of Americans – providing practical and evidence based advice to individuals regarding their options for addressing their long term care needs.

In this assignment you will address a hypothetical scenario that involves assumptions about Mary and Don, including: extent of disability, living situation, financial situation, service preferences, and specific questions presented to you in terms of their concerns and issues. This assignment may require you to make some assumptions about their situation in order to completely respond to the scenario. Please ask questions if you have any concerns about this.

You will be expected to integrate the concepts and information in the first few weeks of the course to present a thorough and cogent explanation of (1) the long term care options appropriate to their circumstances and preferences, (2) the implications of each option for their longer term financial security and social quality of life, and (3) a specific set of recommendations on what they should do.

The specific case scenario involving Mary and Don is found on pages 36 and 37 of your McSweeney-Feld and Oetjen text book. The specific questions you must respond to in your analysis of the scenario are found on page 37 of the text book.

The response should not exceed six pages double-spaced, excluding title page and references. All type must be Times Roman 12 point pica. Post to your assignment folder.

The individual paper 1 represents 10 points or ten percent of your final grade.

The purposes of this individual paper is to a.) develop your critical thinking skills and b.) enhance your problem solving and decision making abilities, and (3) improve your knowledge and expertise about ethical issues in long term care. Preparing a case analysis also provides you with an opportunity to develop your writing effectiveness.

This part of the course focuses on a paper addressing the legal and ethical issues of long term care administration. Students may select from two case studies in the text book. The first option is located on pages 229 and 230 of the McSweeney-Feld and Oetjen textbook, entitled “End-of-life and the Family”. The questions your paper must respond to are located on page 230 of the textbook. The second case option is located on pages 230 and 231 of the McSweeney-Feld and Oetjen textbook and is entitled “Refusing Treatment”. The questions for this case are located on page 231 of the textbook.

You will post your preferences in a class conference set up for that purpose in week 1. The instructor reserves the right to reassign students to assure there is sufficient coverage for both case scenarios.

This paper is not to be done in consultation with any other students. Students will need to incorporate a basic understanding of the long term care industry, legal issues, resources available to help the manager address the problem, and a sound ethical basis for problem-solving.

The review of each case should not exceed 8 double spaced pages, not including your APA cover page and a reference page. All type must be Times Roman 12 point pica. All case analyses must be posted in the conference section and in the student’s personal assignment folder according to the dates and times identified in the syllabus. The due dates are important because the instructor wants the cases posted to enable sufficient time for discussion and dialog in the conference session associated with that topic. This will allow students the time necessary to review your case study before responding in the scheduled conference. The goal is to provide a set of diverse analyses of long term care ethics to give students an appreciation of the complexity and challenges of these issues by enabling students in the class to compare and contrast the different approaches to ethical issues. You also will post the case analysis in your assignment folder for grading.

The paper should not exceed 8 pages, double spaced in length.

The individual paper 2 accounts for 20 points, or 20 percent of your grade.

Preparing a team case analysis also provides you with an opportunity to develop your writing effectiveness.

Statement on Team/Group Work:

A major requirement for this course will be met through team/group work; UMUC encourages group work since so many organizations use teams both face-to-face and virtually. This course design is purposeful, so that students may take advantage of the knowledge, skills, abilities and work experiences (intellectual capital) each student brings to this course. All persons are expected to participate fully and contribute to the goals and outcomes of the group. In the event an individual is not meeting the expectations of the group, it will be up to the group to seek modification of that person’s performance. If group intervention is not successful, the group should contact the faculty person so that the issues can quickly be resolved.

The team managerial case analysis is designed to accomplish two goals. First, the case will cover an important area of management problem solving, such as human resources management, strategic marketing, and finance, and resident centered care. The case reflects both internal and external organizational factors that are necessary to understand and respond to if you are to be a successful manager. Second, the case represents management analysis in a specific type of long term care organization, such as a nursing home, home care agency, hospice, or assisted living facility. Different teams will address different management issues and long term care organizational settings which adds breadth to the case study experience.

The cases to be used in this class include the following:

Class session 8 – “A Tale of Two Nursing Home Administrators”, page 140-142, Sweeney-Feld and Oetjen textbook. The case study questions that you must respond to are found on page 142.

Class session 9 – “Fox Meadows Assisted Living”, page 177-178, Sweeney-Feld and Oetjen textbook. The case study questions that you must respond to are found on page 178.

Class session 10 – “The Opening of Bright Horizons”. The case study is available in the course content section of the classroom. The questions you that you must respond to are found at the end of the case.

Class session 11 – “Cultural Competency Counts Galtier Health Center”, page 116-117, Sweeney-Feld and Oetjen textbook. The case study questions that you must respond to are found on page 117.

These cases are designed to allow you to apply the management principles discussed in the course readings. By the end of the third week, you will be asked to submit your preferences for the cases outlined in the syllabus to the instructor. Be sure to select your preferences only among the cases listed in the syllabus. You will be asked to prioritize your preferences; try to include at least three preferences. Requests will be submitted via a no more than one screen (page) due electronically to the instructor by posting the requests in the class conference set up for this communication. The instructor will use this information to assign each student to a single case study team.

Please note that every attempt will be made to accommodate your interests in this class. Depending on class enrollment, approximately 5 students are expected to be assigned to each team. However, since all cases must be covered, the instructor may need to assign students to teams that are not on their list of preferences. Also, failure to post your preferences by the due date will result in the instructor assigning you a case assignment. The instructor’s decision on assignment of teams is final.

The review of each team case should not exceed 12 double spaced pages, not including your APA cover page and a reference page. All type must be Times Roman 12 point pica. Use the APA style for citing all sources.

All team case analyses must be posted in the conference section according to the dates and times identified in the syllabus. The due dates are important because the instructor wants the cases posted to enable sufficient time for discussion and dialog in the conference session associated with that topic. This will allow students the time necessary to review the team’s case study before responding in the scheduled conference. The goal is to provide a case analysis that other students in the class can compare and contrast the different approaches to the case review in preparation for the conference session that follows. You also will post the team case analysis in your own assignment folder for grading. Credit for team work and participation will be based solely on postings in the Team Study Group. These study groups will be created a few days after the instructor assigns students to each team.

The team management paper (e.g., case analysis) accounts for 25 points, or 25 percent of your grade.

4. Examination (Final) – Links with Course Objectives 1, 2, 3, and 4
