Intro to Human Resource Management Module 4

 Creating a training or development event for employees does not begin with a PowerPoint or manual. Rather, it begins with analysis and assessment of the people, the organization, the desired outcome, and consideration of the most effective methods to achieve the desired outcome.For this assignment you will review the organization and audience analysis below. You will apply this analysis to complete a training overview. Be sure to address all of the bulleted items outlined in the training overview.Organization Analysis and Audience Analysis

  • Organization Analysis:
    • Parker and Parker, LLC is an HR outsourcing organization specializing in helping healthcare organizations with their HR functions. The organization employs 42 human resource professionals and four assistant directors across eight states.
    • Mission Statement: We provide stress-free HR support and solutions.
  • Audience Analysis:
    • The target audience of this training comprises of the 16 entry-level college graduate employees. Because Parker and Parker, LLC is an international organization, employees are disbursed throughout eight states and two areas of Prague most communication is written, and computer mediated. Miscommunications have occurred because of different levels of fluency in English and Czech as well as cultural differences that impact communication preferences. A few clients have expressed concern about the quality of Parker and Parker’s work overall if employees cannot communicate effectively in both languages. Teams within the organization have also struggled to meet deadlines due to miscommunications and conflicts.
    • The largest challenge facing Parker and Parker is the remote global nature of the workforce. Employees will have to train online when and where it is convenient to them. Another challenge is the lack of interest in language learning as indicated in an employee survey conducted 6 months ago. Most employees in the US were resistant to learning Czech.
    • The target audience will benefit from this training as effective communication prevents misunderstandings, increases client satisfaction, and protects the organization legally.  

Complete a Training Overview Prepare a Training Overview based on the information above. Be sure to include:

  • a brief yet informative description of the training.
  • an explanation of the learning theory that serves as a framework for the training (Knowles’ Principles of Andragogy, Transformational Learning, Experiential Learning).
  • Demonstrate an understanding of cultural differences and the importance of respect and inclusion.
  • a list of three to five objectives written in the “to + verb” format. Note: Be sure to address the global cultural differences challenging the organization’s effective teamwork in this list of objectives.
    • Examples: By the end of the training, participants will be able
      • To write a three-paragraph memo with…
      • To recognize and correct…
  • a statement of the desired outcome for the organization.
    • Examples:
      • To decrease waste by 10-15% by end of Q3.
      • To decrease chemical burns in the Southeast plants by 50% within 3 months of implementation.
      • To create at least three cross functional remote teams in Q1 using technology to facilitate communication and collaboration.



Chapter 1: Public Health Nursing: Present, Past, and Future

  1. Analyze the roots of public health nursing. Explain its influence on practice today.








Discussion: Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics

As an advanced practice nurse assisting physicians in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders, it is important to not only understand the impact of disorders on the body, but also the impact of drug treatments on the body. The relationships between drugs and the body can be described by pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics.

Pharmacokinetics describes what the body does to the drug through absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion, whereas pharmacodynamics describes what the drug does to the body.

When selecting drugs and determining dosages for patients, it is essential to consider individual patient factors that might impact the patient’s pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic processes. These patient factors include genetics, gender, ethnicity, age, behavior (i.e., diet, nutrition, smoking, alcohol, illicit drug abuse), and/or pathophysiological changes due to disease.

For this Discussion, you reflect on a case from your past clinical experiences and consider how a patient’s pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic processes may alter his or her response to a drug.

To Prepare
  • Review the Resources for this module and consider the principles of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics.
  • Reflect on your experiences, observations, and/or clinical practices from the last 5 years and think about how pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic factors altered his or her anticipated response to a drug.
  • Consider factors that might have influenced the patient’s pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic processes, such as genetics (including pharmacogenetics), gender, ethnicity, age, behavior, and/or possible pathophysiological changes due to disease.
  • Think about a personalized plan of care based on these influencing factors and patient history in your case study.

Post a description of the patient case from your experiences, observations, and/or clinical practice from the last 5 years. Then, describe factors that might have influenced pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic processes of the patient you identified. Finally, explain details of the personalized plan of care that you would develop based on influencing factors and patient history in your case. Be specific and provide examples.

Developing Clinical Judgement

One of the most important skills a nurse needs is clinical judgment. This is a skill that can be learned. Reflect on your own ability to critically think and the reading for this module.

When see yourself as a nurse and giving care, discuss what qualities and behaviors you possess that make you a person that would have good clinical judgment. What three strategies can you use to develop better clinical judgment? As a nurse, what areas of the nursing process do you think might be more challenging to you given the critical thinking and clinical judgment skills you have now?

Please make your initial post by midweek, and respond to at least two other student’s post by the end of the week. Please check the Course Calendar for specific due dates.


In public health, data are often gathered from separate groups in order to describe health-related behavior for a topic of interest. In practice, a larger sample is often surveyed, and then focus groups or interviews can be conducted with a smaller subset of the sample. The quantitative survey data from a larger group helps to identify health-related trends and patterns within the sample group. The qualitative data collected with the smaller group complements the quantitative survey data and helps to determine why and how a phenomenon exists. The cumulative findings can then help public health professionals form a conclusion about the health issue and inform future public health research, policy, and practice. 
The purpose of this assignment is to analyze qualitative and quantitative data from two separate groups, propose a research question, and then disseminate your findings in a mixed-methods manuscript. The survey and focus group are both on the topic of nutrition. The quantitative data is adapted from the Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBSS), and the qualitative data is from a focus group transcript in which 9th grade girls discussed healthy eating.
For this assignment, you will use:
IBM SPSS Statistics and the “Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System Dataset” to conduct a basic quantitative statistical analysis.
The “9th Grade Girls Healthy Food Focus Group Transcription” to conduct a qualitative analysis and identify key themes.
Part 1: Analyzing Data
Using the resources indicated above, conduct the following analyses and record the results on the “Results and Outputs” template. Attach this document as an Appendix in your paper.
Qualitative Analysis: Read the “9th Grade Girls Healthy Food Focus Group Transcription.” This transcript is from a focus group of 9th grade girls discussing healthy eating with the moderator. Generate codes and summarize the qualitative data.
Quantitative Analysis:
Review the “Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System Dataset.” Identify two or three variables of interest and identify a study topic for your paper. Conduct a literature search for three to five peer-reviewed articles from the last 5 years that have studies supporting your topic. Develop a research question for your study based on the selected variables. The research question should demonstrate support for the focus group results and should be supported by existing literature.
Prepare the data to complete the analysis based on your research question.
Using SPSS, conduct descriptive statistics to summarize the sample.
Using SPSS, select an appropriate quantitative inferential statistical test to analyze the data.
Part 2: Reporting Data
Prepare a 1,250-1,500 word manuscript to disseminate the findings of your proposed study. The study should be based on your proposed research question and supported by the findings from the qualitative and quantitative analyses above, as well as by current literature. Include the following:
