Developing organizational policies and practices: Healthcare

Developing organizational policies and practices is integral in an organization. Competing needs arise within any organization as employees seek to meet their targets as well as leaders seeking to meet company goals. As a leader, successful management of these goals requires establishing priorities and allocating resources accordingly. Within a healthcare setting, the needs of the workforce, resources, and patients are often in conflict. Mandatory overtime, implementation of staffing ratios, use of unlicensed assisting personnel, as well as employer reductions of education benefits. These are examples of practices that might lead to conflicting needs in practice. Therefore, Leaders can contribute to both the problem and the solution through policies, action, and inaction.

 Competing needs in the organization: Developing organizational policies and practices

Address competing needs within your organization. In addition, review the national healthcare issue/stressor you examined in your Assignment for Module 1, and further review the analysis of the healthcare issue/stressor you selected. Identify and review two evidence-based scholarly resources that focus on proposed policies/practices to apply to your selected healthcare issue/stressor. Reflect on the feedback you received from your colleagues on your Discussion post regarding competing needs.

Ethical considerations of the policies and practices

Developing Organizational Policies and Practices Add a section to the paper you submitted in Module 1. The new section should address the following: Identify and describe at least two competing needs impacting your selected healthcare issue/stressor. Describe a relevant policy or practice in your organization that may influence your selected healthcare issue/stressor. Critique the policy for ethical considerations, and explain the policy’s strengths and challenges in promoting ethics. Recommend one or more policy or practice changes designed to balance the competing needs of resources, workers, and patients, while addressing any ethical shortcomings of the existing policies. Be specific and provide examples. Cite evidence that informs the healthcare issue/stressor and/or the policies, and provide two scholarly resources in support of your policy or practice recommendations.
