STRESS AND THE IMMUNE RESPONSE

Paper , Order, or Assignment Requirements

The readings you accomplished for Module 3’s Case Assignment are quite new scientific theories that are currently being tested by scientists who are trying to figure out why individuals suffer from many immune-related issues such as fatigue, chronic pain, and even cancer. The scientific and medical communities have collected a lot of evidence that stress (and even inflammation) plays a very big role in these conditions. We still have a long way to go and a lot of unanswered questions.
The Dartmouth study in Case 3 gave you an introduction to the scientific method (watch the previous hyperlink for an overview of how the scientific method is used to gather data and analyze results). The “gold standard” of research design is often a “true experimental design” because it uses control and experimental groups which produce data that is analyzed statistically. Below you can read about another example of research design called a case study. There are many ways to conduct a study depending on budget, time, resources and the questions being asked. There are pros and cons to each. You can review different types of research methods at the following site: https://explorable.com/research-designs. Note the differences in true experimental designs versus case studies as you will contrast them later in this assignment. After you view this linked animation about the scientific method, read the following case study and complete the questions following this assignment:

Case Study
Derek is a 25-year-old male who recently moved back in with his parents after his girlfriend was killed by a drunk driver 2 months ago. He had been dating his girlfriend for the past 3.5 years. As she was walking across a busy intersection to meet him for lunch, she was hit by a passing vehicle. He still vividly remembers the horrifying scene as the drunk driver ran the red light, plowing down his girlfriend right before his eyes. He ran to the scene, embracing her crumpled body as she died in his arms in the middle of the crosswalk. He keeps trying to erase the scene from his memory, but can’t seem to stop reliving the entire incident as if it was happening all over.
Derek has been having nightmares about the accident almost every night since the accident. He had to quit his job because his office was located in the building right next to the little café where he was meeting his girlfriend for lunch the day she died. The few times he attempted to return to work were unbearable for him. He has since avoided that entire area of town.
Normally an outgoing, fun-loving guy, Derek has become increasingly withdrawn and irritable since his girlfriend’s death. He’s stopped going to the gym, playing his guitar, or going out with his friends – all activities he once really enjoyed. His parents worry about how detached and emotionally flat he’s become.
—————-
Answer the following questions in essay format about Derek’s condition:

• Observation: What are some of the observations you can make about Derek’s current state of health and well-being based on the information you have?
• Question: What question (or questions) would you formulate about his condition to help you arrive at a diagnosis?
——————–
• Hypothesis: What do you currently know about short- and long-term stress and its effects on the body that can help you arrive at a hypothesis about his condition? Incorporate your knowledge of stress and inflammation to help you develop at least one hypothesis concerning his condition.
——————–
• Experiment: How could you collect data to help you answer your questions above? Remember, you do not have a control in this scenario, so you must evaluate the case based on Derek’s symptoms alone. Do a bit of research on the technology available today that could help you evaluate his condition. Examples of new technology include brain imaging, blood chemistry, hormone level tests, CAT scans, MRIs, and DNA mapping.
—————-
• Result: Now that you have some additional information, briefly and in simple terms, describe how you would test any missing information about Derek’s condition.

Statistical thinking in Health Care

Paper , Order, or Assignment Requirements

Ben Davis had just completed an intensive course in Statistical Thinking for Business Improvement, which was offered to all employees of a large health maintenance organization. There was no time to celebrate, however, because he was already under a lot of pressure. Ben works as a pharmacist’s assistant in the HMO’s pharmacy, and his manager, Juan de Pacotilla, was about to be fired. Juan’s dismissal appeared to be imminent due to numerous complaints and even a few lawsuits over inaccurate prescriptions. Juan now was asking Ben for his assistance in trying to resolve the problem, preferably yesterday!

“Ben, I really need your help! If I can’t show some major improvement or at least a solid plan by next month, I’m history.”
“I’ll be glad to help, Juan, but what can I do? I’m just a pharmacist’s assistant.”
“I don’t care what your job title is; I think you’re just the person who can get this done. I realize I’ve been too far removed from day-to-day operations in the pharmacy, but you work there every day. You’re in a much better position to find out how to fix the problem. Just tell me what to do, and I’ll do it.”
“But what about the statistical consultant you hired to analyze the data on inaccurate prescriptions?”
“Ben, to be honest, I’m really disappointed with that guy. He has spent two weeks trying to come up with a new modeling approach to predict weekly inaccurate prescriptions. I tried to explain to him that I don’t want to predict the mistakes, I want to eliminate them! I don’t think I got through, however, because he said we need a month of additional data to verify the model, and then he can apply a new method he just read about in a journal to identify ‘change points in the time series,’ whatever that means. But get this, he will only identify the change points and send me a list; he says it’s my job to figure out what they mean and how to respond. I don’t know much about statistics — the only thing I remember from my course in college is that it was the worst course I ever took– but I’m becoming convinced that it actually doesn’t have much to offer in solving real problems. You’ve just gone through this statistical thinking course, though, so maybe you can see something I can’t. To me, statistical thinking sounds like an oxymoron. I realize it’s a long shot, but I was hoping you could use this as the project you need to officially complete the course.”

“I see your point, Juan. I felt the same way, too. This course was interesting, though, because it didn’t focus on crunching numbers. I have some ideas about how we can approach making improvements in prescription accuracy, and I think this would be a great project. We may not be able to solve it ourselves, however. As you know, there is a lot of finger-pointing going on; the pharmacists blame sloppy handwriting and incomplete instructions from doctors for the problem; doctors blame pharmacy assistants like me who actually do most of the computer entry of the prescriptions, claiming that we are incompetent; and the assistants tend to blame the pharmacists for assuming too much about our knowledge of medical terminology, brand names, known drug interactions, and so on.”
“It sounds like there’s no hope, Ben!”

“I wouldn’t say that at all, Juan. It’s just that there may be no quick fix we can do by ourselves in the pharmacy. Let me explain how I’m thinking about this and how I would propose attacking the problem using what I just learned in the statistical thinking course.”

Assuming the role of Ben Davis, write a three to four (3-4) page paper in which you apply the approach discussed in the textbook to this problem. You’ll have to make some assumptions about the processes used by the HMO pharmacy. Also, please use the Internet and / or Strayer LRC to research articles on common problems or errors that pharmacies face. Your paper should address the following points:

Develop a process map about the prescription filling process for HMO’s pharmacy, in which you specify the key problems that the HMO’s pharmacy might be experiencing. Next, use the supplier, input, process steps, output, and customer (SIPOC) model to analyze the HMO pharmacy’s business process.
Analyze the process map and SIPOC model to identify possible main root causes of the problems. Next, categorize whether the main root causes of the problem are special causes or common causes. Provide a rationale for your response.
Suggest the main tools that you would use and the data that you would collect in order to analyze the business process and correct the problem. Justify your response.
Propose one (1) solution to the HMO pharmacy’s on-going problem(s) and propose one (1) strategy to measure the aforementioned solution. Provide a rationale for your response.

Strategic Human Resource Management

Paper , Order, or Assignment Requirements

Select an organisation with which you are familiar to be the focus for your case study. This could be:
– your current employer
– a previous employer
– an organisation that you have or have had contact with, possibly through work experience or through a family member or close friend, or:
– an organisation you have an interest in that has readily available information on its structure, the ways in which they manage their staff and how the company organises its HRM activities and functions.

The size and the structure of your chosen organisation is not important since all organisations employ people and, therefore, manage their ‘human resources’ in some way. What is important, however, is that you have some knowledge and understanding of the approach the company uses to strategically manage HRM to recruit, retain and manage their staff and how they organise their HRM activities and functions.

You will use this knowledge to produce a report in which you will critically assess existing HRM practices within the organisation, making recommendations as appropriate to those who run the business on where and how improvements can be made. It is strongly suggested that each task represents a sub-section of your report and that you also include a brief introduction to the organisation, conclusion and recommendations.

Task 1 – 25 Marks:
Critically analyse the internal and external environment for your chosen organisation, making reference to appropriate literature sources.

Task 2 – 25 Marks:
Using appropriate concepts and models of strategic Human Resource Management critically evaluate a variety of human resource policies and procedures. (A minimum of two is required).

Task 3 – 50 Marks:
Make recommendations relating to the attraction and retention of talent to support the future performance of your chosen organisation. This may be the adoption of new approaches to HRM or new methods of managing the human resources of the organisation. In this section you should also demonstrate awareness of barriers to implementation which may include cultural differences alongside different working practices and legislation.
