January 14, 2015 M Scholarly Discussion 2.1 Understanding the parts of a complex system, or the Complex Theory, and how systems work together within an organization enables us to see how they can affect the patients care and eventual outcome. Choosing from the category of staff, the questions I would ask are as follows: does the institution allow for input and critical thinking from their nursing staff? As stated in Edgeware Tales, Unleashing People Potential, When Trouble Makers Become Superstars (1998), the nurse manager Janet has become “stagnated” in her “environment of command/control culture”. Janet’s personality is one of a “free thinker, she couldn’t accept a decision just because she was told to she needed to understand the decision”. Janet, “recognized what was not working rather than pretending it did”. Not all personalities are able to work and thrive in an atmosphere of conformity. The next important question to ask would be the status of morale. If the health care team members are unhappy and frustrated due to stringent policies, procedures and other limitations the patient outcome will be reflective of this. Edgeware Tales, Unleashing People Potential, When Trouble Makers Become Superstars (1998), “there seemed no opportunities to be creative, no reason to be innovative”. “Something was missing in Janet, something essential had become dormant - her passion”. Within a system of complexity leadership, there is the theory of distributed leadership. Crowell (2009), “a process that includes accountability and contributions from nurses at all levels, share governance. By allowing the nursing staff to have autonomy the system would foster emergence. The type of leadership of an organization sets the tone for the entire system. Knowing what is important to the governing body will greatly impact on the culture of the institution.…...

...Scholarly Journal Criminology Theory October 16, 2012 Scholarly Journal The growing figures of women implicated in the criminal-justice system and the shortage of programs and assistance that are equipped toward their necessities has encouraged criminal justice experts to investigate their sanctioning and oversight procedures in terms of gender. However, there is additionally comprehensive information concerning the attributes of women in prisons and jails, there are considerably fewer facts on female delinquents in community correctional environments. The failure of mature females in criminal-justice investigation has been substantiated on the grounds that they report for only a short fraction of apprehensions and move fewer delinquencies than males. This explanation disregards the fact that, adult females who do register in the justice system, while fewer other and less vicious than their male counterparts, generally come to be extensive users of the system. In concentrating on the devastating quantity of males in the criminal and juvenile justice organizations programs, procedures and services usually fall through to produce a mixture of options for conducting with the gender and culturally specific complications of female offenders implicated in the system. For Gottfredson and Hirschi, transgression can generally be diminished to “acts of force or fraud undertaken in pursuit of self-interest,” which is speculative of both cross-cultural and reforming authentic......

...DISCUSSION BOARD INSTRUCTIONS As part of the collaborative learning environment, you are required to interact with your classmates and course instructor in three Discussion Board forums. The interaction within this setting makes up a significant portion of your grade for this course. For each of the two graded forums, the instructor will provide you with a thought-provoking topic that will help start your online discussion.  Each forum is completed in two parts over the course of two weeks. In the first week of the forum, you will post a new thread that directly addresses the prompt provided by the instructor. In the subsequent week, you will post two meaningful replies to at least two classmates’ threads. Thus, for each forum you are required to post a minimum of 3 times: 1 thread and 2 replies. The instructor will observe online discussions throughout the assigned weeks and may interject his or her comments intermittently. Feel free to respond to the instructor's comments in addition to the required replies to your classmates' postings. Follow the guidelines provided below as you complete each part of the forums. THREAD: • Respond to the questions/ideas that are presented in the instructor’s prompt. • Summarize any related ideas that are presented in the Fee and Stuart textbook.

Locating Scholarly Resources

...Week 2 Assignment: Locating Scholarly Resources Article 1: Gooding, S. S. (May, 1996). At the boundaries of religious identity: Native American religions and American legal culture. Numen, 43(2), 157-183. Retrieved from JSTOR database. Thesis Statement: This essay attempts to build on the insights of these two great scholars-Felix Cohen, the legal scholar and “father of federal Indian law” and Lawrence Sullivan, the encyclopedic and graceful historian of religion-with regard to “Native America,” which is no less an imagined and located social-historical place than is “America.” I attempt to build on their shared claim that, although Native American communities may mark boundaries of social, political, and cultural difference in the US, the histories of these communities are neither “other” to nor on the periphery of American history, but at its heart. I also attempt to build on the present tense and dynamic sense of agency with which Cohen and especially Sullivan speak of Native Americans-a dynamic present tense too often missing in the historical frameworks given voice in scholarship. The relationship between religion and the law in Native America is an ideal subject through which to view this historical dynamism and to evaluate contemporary scholarly and legal frameworks for interpretation.

Scholarly Writing

...DDBA-8005 Handout What is Scholarly Writing? If you are just beginning your graduate studies, much of the next few years of your life will be devoted to scholarly writing. You will be reading, discussing, and producing scholarly writing. You will get feedback from peers, instructors, and the Writing Center staff about how to adapt to the expectations of scholarly writing. You hear about it so much, in fact, that you may hesitate to ask the basic question: "What is scholarly writing?" Scholarly writing is a type of writing rather than a level of writing (there is no hierarchy in writing genres). Scholarly writing is not any better than journalism, fiction, or poetry; it is just a different category. As with any type of writing, scholarly writing has traditions and expectations that you know about only if you read or write in that style. Because most of us do not use scholarly writing in our daily practice, it can feel unfamiliar and intimidating, but it is a skill that can be learned.  The more you are immersed in it, the more you will get a feeling for its hallmarks. Here are a few of the most common characteristics of scholarly writing: • The wording in scholarly writing is specialized, requiring previous knowledge on the part of the reader. You will not be able to pick up a scholarly journal in another field and easily understand its contents (although you should be able to follow the writing itself). Scholarly authors assume that their audience is......

Indentidfying Scholarly Resources

...Identifying Scholarly Resources The first database I decided to explore was google scholar, http://scholar?q=+in+infant+after+intubation&btnG=&h1=en&as_sdt=0%2c11. I use google search engine all the time so I felt like google scholar would be an easy transition into looking for scholarly resources. Google scholar was very user friendly. It pulled up several relevant articles. It was easy to put in the time frame you want the article to be published in. The main problem I have seen with google scholar is that when trying to read the full text article, it often required payment. The second database I decided to explore was PubMed, http://www.ncbi.nlm.gov/pubmed/20334332 . I found this data to also be user friendly. Like google scholar you can go to advance search and put in the time frame of the publication. You could also check whether you wanted to only search full text and peer reviewed articles. The problem I had with PubMed is finding relevant articles in the time frame I needed them to be in. When searching with databases I had to use correct word phrases to get relevant articles. My topic is stridor in infants after intubation. We intubate infants in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) all the time. It is usually an emergency and we intubate as quick as possible, sometimes causing injury. The topic is an interest to me not only because I am a NICU nurse, but because I am a parent of an infant born at 27 weeks gestation, who was intubated at delivery....

...Chamberlain College of Nursing What Is a Scholarly Source? In any course you take, professors are going to ask you to find scholarly sources for discussions and assignments. A source is scholarly when it     comes from a professional, peer-reviewed publication (e.g., a journal or a government report such as from the FDA or CDC); contains references for sources cited, so you can find the original source of information; is written by a professional or scholar in the field and indicates credentials of the author(s); and is no more than 5 years old; however, consult with your instructor regarding the appropriate age of articles. Most nursing, medical, science and social science journals meet these criteria. If an article seems like it is too simplistic or is a brief summary, look for other references. Don’t stop the hunt for your information. Newspaper articles and lay person literature (Readers Digest, Healthy Life Magazine, Food and Fitness) can be sources for background about your topic for a project, but are not considered scholarly. What else is not a scholarly source?     Course textbooks (course textbooks are not peer reviewed and are distillations, interpretations, and analyses of other work) Lessons from online courses or undocumented handouts Information from Wikipedia or any wiki Articles in healthcare and nursing-oriented trade magazines, such as Nursing Made Incredibly Easy and RN Magazine My textbook has a famous nursing author and is full of references....

Neighborhood Scholarly Paper

... Neighborhood Scholarly Paper: Effective Control of Asthma Using Peak Flow Monitoring Tammy Harris Alvernia University Neighborhood Scholarly Paper: K.Y. Management of Asthma Using Peak Flow Monitoring The client focus of this paper is K. Y. She is an eight-year-old, typical third grader at the local elementary school, where she enjoys playing with her friends. K.Y. lives at home with her father, mother and two brothers. She takes swimming lessons, piano lessons, and enjoys family outings. Bur most of all, K.Y. loves anything that involves animals. Prior to her eighth birthday, K.Y. suffered from ongoing issues with reactive airway disease. This is a term used to describe a history of coughing, wheezing and/or shortness of breath, often used when Asthma is suspected but the diagnosis is unconfirmed. Recently, K.Y. has been officially diagnosed with Asthma, and is having a difficult time understanding why her breathing problem is keeping her from enjoying all the things that she loves. Prior to K.Y.’s diagnosis, the family had two cats that they have since removed from the home. Her mother is well educated on her medications and how to use them. With her daughters’ recent diagnosis, she has also learned how to monitor K.Y.’s peak flow and how to use these results to administer the medications at the most appropriate times. Although K.Y. knows she has a “breathing problem”, there is a great deal of education needed for her to understand her illness and what kind of impact it...

Critique of a Scholarly Journal

...Critique of a Scholarly Journal Fields, Barry (2012) Getting the balance right: The challenge of balancing praise and correction for early school years children who exhibit oppositional and defiant behaviour. Australasian Journal of Early Childhood, 37(4), 24-29. Topic/Purpose: The purpose of this article was to investigate how schools that have implemented a School Wide Positive Behavior Support (SWPBS) approach are balancing praise and correction for early school years children who exhibit oppositional defiant behavior (ODB). The author’s hypothesis is that the students that display ODB would have greater opportunities for praise and reward when exhibiting appropriate behavior given the SWPBS environment. Main Ideas/Concerns: With more children in early childcare settings exhibiting oppositional defiant behavior it becomes more challenging to create a nurturing and supportive learning environment. Early intervention is more than likely to yield a positive outcome for many developmental problems. Behavior improvement interventions have been found to be more effective when implemented across multiple settings. For pre-school and early childhood students, the most important settings for those interventions are the home and school (or childcare center). However the number of parents that incorporate any level of intervention in the home setting is unknown. Traditionally schools have......

Scholarly, Popular, and Trade Sources

...between scholarly, professional, and trade sources when doing research. The first important difference between scholary, popular, and trade sources is who they are written by. Scholarly sources are written by scholarly authors. These are people who are experts in the field that they are writing about. They usually have one of more phds.Occasionally you will see scholarly scources written by phd canidates or people with master degrees. On the other hand popular degrees are written y non-experts. Journalists and freelance writers make up a large percentage of the authors of popluar sources. Ocasssionally you will see a popular publication about a certain topic written by an expert. But just because the author is a scholar doesn’t make the article scholarly. Trade magazines, also known as professional magazines or journals, are publications about skilled work that require special knowledge and skills but people don’t get advanced degrees in those fields. Articles and trade journals are written by people with extensive training, experience, and relevant certifications in theor fields regardless if they have college degrees. The second important difference points out that it’s not only important who wrote the article but who it is written for. Scholarly articles and books are written for fellow experts in a specialized sunject area. They are also read by undergraduate and graduate students who are taking courses in that area. Because they are intended for fellow experts,......

Scholarly Article Review

...Scholarly Article Review “The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a retrovirus that infects cells of the immune system, destroying or impairing their function” (World Health Organization, 2010). Individuals infected with the disease experience weakened immune systems, and there susceptibility to other infections increases. “The most advanced stage of HIV infection is acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), and it can take 10-15 years for an HIV-infected person to develop AIDS; antiretroviral drugs can slow down the process even further” (World Health Organization, 2010). Some of the most popular ways HIV can be transmitted from person to person is through sexual intercourse, blood transfusions, sharing or reusing contaminated needles, and between a mother and her infant during pregnancy (World Health Organization, 2010). Preventing HIV/AIDS is a major health promotion goal because AIDS is a global pandemic. Epidemics of the AIDS virus have occurred simultaneously on more than one continent around the world. According to the website for the U.S. Census Bureau (2010) there are approximately 6,872,011,659 people worldwide as of August 25, 2010. In 2008 there were approximately 33.4 million people living with HIV worldwide, and “2.7 million people were newly infected with HIV worldwide in 2008” (World Health Organization, 2010). “67% of all people living with HIV in 2008 were in sub-Saharan Africa and 2 million people died of AIDS-related illnesses worldwide in 2008”......
