HCA 459 Week 5 Final Paper Senior
Check this A+ tutorial guideline at
To start, select one of the following approved topics for your Senior Project. You
may also have a topic of your choice approved by the instructor in Week One.
Many of the approved topics have specific subtopics outlined and, while these
topics are not all-inclusive, they do provide insight into specific areas to
1. Examine how participative leadership functions in today’s modern health care
organization and compare it to other types of leadership styles. Evaluate how
each type of leadership style may impact organizational culture, employee
performance, and how it may help or hinder the legitimacy of authority.
2. As an administrator, address the challenges of employee recruitment and
retention of health care professionals. Additional subtopics may include trends
in the nursing workforce, shortage of primary care physicians, staff turnover,
retention, and staffing patterns.
3. Analyze the dual role of a manager and healthcare professional. Examine
challenges that the health professional compared to those of a non-health
professional, may face in terms of leadership style, and the impact these
challenges have on organizational culture. The benefits of a health professional
manager as an organizational resource may also be included. Explore the career
trends of health professionals in organizational leadership positions, such as the
types of health professional training that leaders tend to have in common, and
the typical demographic background of health professional managers.
4. The health care industry must anticipate and monitor trends that could
possibly affect its overall survival. Analyze how regulation of the healthcare
industry impacts a health care organization. Explore some of the possible
survival organizational strategies such as, but not limited to, mergers, and
affiliations, achieving accreditation status, professional licensure.
5. Analyze the impact of technology on how health care services are delivered.
The impact of technology on employee performance, organizational structure,
and management planning may also be considered.
6. Analyze the impact of any recent social and/or ethical trends on the health
care industry. Discuss at least two issues.
After identifying your topic, choose a health care organization in your area. This
organization may be small or large and may provide single inpatient health
service or multiple outpatient services; it is your choice. Consider your topic in
light of the leadership of this organization and research the challenges and
successes it has faced in managing operational effectiveness. You are welcome
to use as many research methods as possible to obtain information for your
organization and its managers (e.g., web-based resources, electronic articles, or
personal interviews). The more informed you are, the better prepared you will
be to complete your project.
Finally, develop a management training program that includes relevant
guidelines and information to combat the issues identified in the selected topic,
as well as recommendations for managers to more effectively lead health care
organizations. Your training program should be in the form of a 20 to 25 slide
PowerPoint presentation (excluding title and reference slides) that includes
comprehensive speaker’s notes for each slide. Utilize at least three to five
scholarly sources from the Ashford University Library and two to three current,
scholarly web sources.
All sources must be cited according to APA guidelines as outlined in the Ashford
Writing Center. Your presentation must be engaging and relevant to your
audience. Lines of text on a slide will not be sufficient for this project. It should
contain images, graphics, and/or multimedia that communicate your training
clearly to your audience. For tips on creating an excellent presentation, read this
