Schizophrenia Over Time: Experiences Living With the Illness

Experiences of schizophrenia are not homogeneous; there is wide variety in onset, course of illness, and combinations of symptoms.

Beyond Informed Consent

Prior to beginning work on this discussion, read the Fisher (2009) article, “Replacing 'Who is the Client?' With a Different Ethical Question” and the APA’s Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct: Including 2010 Amendments (Links to an external site.) paying special attention to standard 3.11. Informed consent is an important ethical component of research and practice. It is not, however, always sufficient or appropriate for consulting, program evaluation, job effectiveness assessment, or other psychological services delivered to or through organizations because it does not always address all the necessary elements of a given situation. These facts do not negate our responsibility as psychology professionals to inform clients and those who may be impacted by our services. In the discussion you will address these issues through the following case study. You are an industrial organizational (I/O) psychologist and have been hired to evaluate a company's “Work From Home” policy to see if it has increased company production. In addition to a review of the employee records, the evaluation needs to include interviews with supervisors and employees...

External Capital Funding Proposal

Overview: The final project for this course is the creation of an external capital funding proposal.Most businesses face a landscape of uncertainty and a never-ending stream of risks and opportunities. Managers must continually project the likely financial impact of decisions, make recommendations, act on those decisions, determine how to pay for them, and evaluate the costs and effectiveness of what has been done. Many decisions are short-term, routine, and operational. Others are longer-term investment decisions that require substantial new resources, such as developing new services, expanding into new geographic markets, or undertaking business combinations or spin-offs. Each requires managers to forecast, plan, and make decisions based on a thorough understanding of both internal and external factors that can affect a company’s financial success. For the summative assessment in this course, you will bring your finance and economics knowledge to bear by preparing an external capital funding proposal for a major international investment at a publicly traded corporation. In order to secure the...

Aligning Contracts with Incentives Policy

People, including healthcare providers, typically behave the way they are incentivized to behave. Healthcare administrators, payers, and regulators spend a significant amount of time working to align incentives with desired behaviors and outcomes. Consider the following hypothetical scenario: You are the head of physician contracting at a small community hospital. The physicians who are employed by the hospital are paid an annual salary without any quality or outcome incentives. In contrast, area physicians with hospital privileges who are employed by medical groups are compensated for quality outcomes and are not paid an annual salary. Your boss, the director of contracting, has asked you to evaluate whether the hospital should shift its employed physicians away from an annual salary model and into a model that incentivizes quality outcomes. How would you approach this request? What additional information do you need in order to evaluate what the hospital should do? Consider potential competing stakeholder values. Create a stepwise plan to respond...
