Is this world a utopia or dystopia?

Is this world a utopia or dystopia? (Literary Response/Analysis Essay) on the book Delirium
A literary response is an argumentative examination of a literary work. The objective is not to write a book report where you summarize plot. When you write an analysis, you are approaching it as if the reader/audience is already familiar with the text. You are arguing an interpretation of that text. You are making connections and claims about what the greater meaning of that text is beneath the plot. Use a moment Think of this as looking at the book under a microscope. You are not looking at the whole of the book, but one part. Begin with one section of the text that stands out to you. Analyze You may interpret it differently than a peer, but you need to back up the inferences you make with direct quotes from the novel and follow-up statements about how that proves or reinforces the thesis. Be a minimum of 1000 words, but not over 1300 words. Use at least four sources (one must be Delirium). Have integrated, direct quotes. However, it also shouldnt be a rehashing of plot or a laundry list of quotes from the novel and/or from another source. It should have your voice as the author.

PP Presentation – Change Agent.

As an advanced registered nurse, you will serve as a leader within your organization. Part of this role will entail being a change agent, and spurring positive change on behalf of patients, colleagues, and the industry.

Describe the background of the situation, including the rationale for and goal(s) of the change. Identify the key interprofessional stakeholders (both internal and external) that should be involved in change efforts. Discuss an appropriate change theory or model that could be used to achieve results. Outline how you would initiate the change. Describe the impact to the organization if the change initiative is unsuccessful again, and potential steps the interprofessional team could take if the change is unsuccessful. Make sure to include slide notes of 100-250 words for each slide. You are required to cite three to five sources to complete this assignment.

Describe the nature of the transition in the organization.

The impact on value of IPUs is striking. With a dramatic contrast compared to regional averages, patients at Virginia Mason’s Spine Clinic miss fewer days of work (4.3 versus 9 per episode) and need fewer physical therapy visits (4.4 versus 8.8).
The shift to value-based health care delivery represents an opportunity to create a more patient-centered organization as well as a more efficient one. Resource limitations and other pressures place a strain on an organization’s ability to change, and organizations respond to these pressures of change differently.

To prepare for this Discussion:
Consider the impact of the transition from volume- to value-based health care delivery in your organization or one with which you are familiar.
Potential transitions to consider may be examples such as the shift from inpatient to ambulatory care, the Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) initiative, or the Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) initiative.
With this in mind, read the Porter and Lee article published in the Harvard Business Review, and compare their strategic proposal with the transition you are considering.

Post a cohesive response to the following:
Describe the nature of the transition in the organization. Discuss and assess how this transition affected operations, based on the organization’s operational resources and limitations. How did the organization respond to the changes? Was the response effective? How does the IPU approach compare to the transition response? Justify your conclusion. Recommend an alternative course of action.

Determine the distribution and allocation of scarce resources.

The Role of Economics in the Health and Medical Care IndustryDewar (2010) indicates that the field of economics can provide a structure to examine the implications of individual decision making and help define the alternative mechanisms to improve resource allocation (p. 9) but it cannot be used as a solution to all issues concerning healthcare access and delivery.
Economists prepare economic analysis briefs to provide insight into how economic market forces operate. For this assignment prepare an economic analysis brief that describes the role of economics in the health and medical care industry in the United States or abroad to demonstrate an understanding of Module 2. Discuss and synthesize key elements from at least two recent scholarly articles (found in the CSU-Global Library) that address one of the following points:
Determine the distribution and allocation of scarce resources.
Apply economic models theories or assumptions.
Offer objective methods for attempting to predict future market behavior in response to events trends and cycles.
Assess economic policy recommendations for healthcare stakeholders.
Evaluate the economic health of the nation or state.
Your analysis should be thoughtful and thorough well written and formatted accordingly:
Title page
Introduction What is the topic why is it important and what are the objectives of your brief
Body What are the key elements of the scholarly articles that support the objectives of your brief What economic models or concepts apply
Conclusion What are the future implications policy recommendations etc.
