Select a publication or a newspaper article on a pathogen, apply knowledge learned in BIOS242, and write a paper.
The goal for this project is:
to make connections between concepts learned in the course and what is observed in a health care setting
to understand real-life applications of Microbiology
Project Parameters:For this assignment, you will identify a pathogen in a newspaper article or publication of your choice, apply principles learned in BIOS 242, and research the pathogen for its connection to nursing/health care. You must get approval for your chosen article and pathogen. You will then write a paper on their chosen pathogen/topic. Use the template hyperlinked above when writing your paper.
The pathogen can be a bacteria, fungus, protozoa, or virus. In addition to the article, information to include in the paper should include, morphology, gram stain characteristics, virulence factors, susceptibility to antibiotics, host cells, nutritional needs, growth conditions, mechanisms used to evade the immune system and invasion into the host(s), interactions with the hosts and diseases caused and affected body systems. Additionally, students should explain symptoms when the pathogen infects a host, as well as a diagnosis and the therapeutic intervention needed after infection. You may also add information on statistics related to infection (epidemiology) and any new research findings related to the pathogen.
THIS IS THE PATHOGEN YOU WILL USE Staphylococcus epidermidis

The Surgical Care Improvement Project (SCIP) is a national quality partnership of organizations interested in improving surgical care by significantly reducing surgical complications. Partners in SCIP believe that a meaningful reduction in surgical complications depends on surgeons, anesthesiologists, perioperative nurses, pharmacists, infection control professionals, and hospital executives working together to intensify their commitment to making surgical care improvement a priority. If you were the administrator in charge of reducing errors related to surgery, what strategies would you implement that enable the different professionals (i.e., surgeons, anesthesiologists, preoperative nurses, pharmacists, infection control professionals, and hospital executives) to receive training? What kind of training and development activities would you implement to change the culture of the hospital in regard to reducing patient care errors? What other HRM activities could be impacted by the training and collaboration?

In this week’s lecture we discussed how the body protects itself against infectious diseases. For this week’s discussion I want you to name one of the ways our body defends itself and describe how it works. Think about the different examples we talked about in the first line of defense (skin, mucus membranes, etc), the second line of defense(inflammation, phagocytosis, etc.), and even the third line with our immune system itself (remember natural passive, artificial active, etc). Use and one of the examples from these chapters.
As usual, the more info, the better. Please feel free to research some information online about our defenses but please remember to then put your research into your own words.

The goal of a complete musculoskeletal assessment is to detect risk factors, potential problems, or musculoskeletal dysfunction early and then to plan appropriate interventions, including teaching health promotion and disease prevention, and implement treatment measures. By doing so, you can play a signiﬁcant role in preventing pain and dysfunction in your patients. Describe a plan to provide patient teaching that incorporates health promotion and disease prevention. Provide rationale. Please write 250-300 Words. Please include 2 citations. Please use two different sources for the citation reference. Thank you in advance.
The Application of Data to Problem-Solving
In the modern era, there are few professions that do not to some extent rely on data. Stockbrokers rely on market data to advise clients on financial matters. Meteorologists rely on weather data to forecast weather conditions, while realtors rely on data to advise on the purchase and sale of property. In these and other cases, data not only helps solve problems, but adds to the practitioner’s and the discipline’s body of knowledge.
Of course, the nursing profession also relies heavily on data. The field of nursing informatics aims to make sure nurses have access to the appropriate date to solve healthcare problems, make decisions in the interest of patients, and add to knowledge.
In this Discussion, you will consider a scenario that would benefit from access to data and how such access could facilitate both problem-solving and knowledge formation.
Reflect on the concepts of informatics and knowledge work as presented in the Resources.
Consider a hypothetical scenario based on your own healthcare practice or organization that would require or benefit from the access/collection and application of data. Your scenario may involve a patient, staff, or management problem or gap.
Post a description of the focus of your scenario. Describe the data that could be used and how the data might be collected and accessed. What knowledge might be derived from that data? How would a nurse leader use clinical reasoning and judgment in the formation of knowledge from this experience?

Re: Topic 9 DQ 1
Professional presentation is a way to share your observation and information. Personally, my strength, is usually starting off with lots of information and then do elimination to have the most important and necessary. Rehearsals are done to be comfortable with the material as well as being able to answer question as well as give illustration of what is just a bullet on the power point. Making sure my audience is engaged, I like to start by introducing my self and ask audience to do the same.
Engagement in learning, ensuring that your audience is engaged and retains what is important from a talk, (Corwin et al., 2018).
Conversely my weakness is I may get nervous if I am not sure of my audience or the information presenting on the subject. I build my confidence by studying the subject thoroughly before the presentation and have some sort of interaction with the audience during the presentation. It is good to understand your audience’s likely goals, interests, and professional identities before designing your presentation, (Corwin et al., 2018).
By building confidence, providing support, and promoting various pathways to success, inclusive practices enhance student learning and decrease social disparities in science, technology, engineering and math, (STEM) education, ultimately supporting STEM innovation, (Johnson, 2019).

Re: Topic 9 DQ 2
Inadequate knowledge among staff is one of the barriers that may limit the success of EBP implementation in the organization. While the use of evidence is linked to advancing knowledge in nursing, nurses in my organization include associate degree nurses and BSN nurses. As a result, I anticipate that the nursing staff’s lack of knowledge of EBP will lead to resistance. Nurses are likely to struggle with interpreting evidence and applying it to change their practice. In addition, a lack of knowledge makes it difficult for nurses to see the significance of the change and how urgent it is. Stakeholders will need to be more accepting of the change in order to encourage EBP in the next six months to a year by improving nurse knowledge. Another issue that may impede EBP implementation is manager resistance. Managers in the organization play a critical role in motivating employees. They must provide resources (Birken et al., 2018). However, it is clear that the managers fear change. The fear for change may cause the unwillingness to facilitate change. The failure of the managers to accept and support the change will make it hard for the staff to implement changes.
One of the strategies for resolving the issues will be to educate nurses on how to interpret research. It will also be necessary to discuss the significance of EBP in modern nursing settings. For example, ADNs should be led to understand how EBP can reduce costs and improve patient satisfaction. Concerning the managers’ reluctance, I will have to make presentations emphasizing the importance of the issue. I will show assistant managers how the EBP will reduce costs and increase revenue. Assisting managers in comprehending how the changes will lead to a better understanding of the logic behind EBP (McArthur et al., 2021).
