Introduction
The healthcare system is being faced by varying issues that escalate challenges with dynamics of the healthcare system. The healthcare system is impacted by changing legal environment, technology, as well as expectations of patients. With the increasing patient expectations, it is important for the stakeholders within the health system to collaborate in order to offer wholesome care and promote better outcomes for patients. The healthcare issue that will be considered in the today’s healthcare system is the co-management between the nurses and nurses.
National Health Issue
There are different models of care that are implemented in pursuit of ensuring patient demands are met wholesomely. Comanageemnt aims at offering care to a patient by more than one clinician to alleviate the strain experienced in the primary care systems (Norful et al., 2018). This has been one of the models that proposed to promote better patient outcomes and should be ado0pted by physicians and other nursing specialists in the critical care units. Shifting from the current model of clinicians’ independently promoting care will ensure that there is efficiency in patient care in critical care units of the hospital. Nurses and physicians are basic to the delivery of quality, safe, timely and efficient care to patients. A common stressor in healthcare system is poor collaboration between healthcare professionals in the delivery of care (Norful et al., 2018). The current system has been characterized by limitations of autonomy of the nursing professionals in their practice by the restrictions imposed by the supervisory relationship with the physicians. Such a limiting relationship restricts the abilities of the nurses to offer patient care based on their skills as opposed to depending on their relationship with physicians to implement their duties independently. To overcome such challenges there is need to implement effective communication strategy, mutual respect, and trust among patients and physicians (Norful et al., 2018). The currently framework of comanagement is affected by poor supervisory relationship between the physicians and the practicing nurse.
How the Issue Impact on Work Environment
Inadequate communication between the nurse and physicians during the care delivery jeopardize the efficacy of teamwork much needed to implement meaningful care to patients. The nurses under the supervision of physicians are likely to achieve considerably little in terms of workload. Nonetheless, this challenge can be overcome if such duties are shared among the nurses (Wen et al., 2017). Besides, the workload will decline significantly if the nurses are allowed to carry out tasks without having to wait for the directions from the physicians. When a nurse has to wait for directions from the physicians, a patient might lack desired care due to lack of autonomy. The scope of work and the restrictions that nurses have to experiences in the workplace make the demotivated to perform their duties (Amadi, 2020).
How Healthcare System has Responded to the Issue
Healthcare systems are working towards the promotions and improvement of relationship between the nurses and the physicians by devising the models that creates a harmonious relationship between the nurse and the physician. Various states have come up with strategies to address similar stressors. As a result, the nurses are able to exercise freedom when providing care based on their level of competence (Norful et al., 2018). However, such models are yet to be implemented in all the states and nurses in such states feel they are not motivated to exercise their duties based on proficiency. Besides, healthcare providers are employing more trained nursing professionals to ensure the nursing practitioners are able to practice their mandate independently (Norful et al., 2018). Deploying highly skilled nurses ensures that they are able to offer quality care without waiting for directions from the physicians.

We will process your orders through multiple stages and checks to ensure that what we are delivering to you, in the end, is something that is precise as you envisioned it. All of our essay writing service products are 100% original, ensuring that there is no plagiarism in them. The sources are well-researched and cited so it is interesting. Our goal is to help as many students as possible with their assignments, i.e. our prices are affordable and services premium.

  • Discussion Questions (DQ)

Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, including a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words. Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source. One or two-sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words. I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.

  • Weekly Participation

Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately. In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies. Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work). Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.

  • APA Format and Writing Quality

Familiarize yourself with the APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in Loud-cloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required). Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation. I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.

  • Use of Direct Quotes

I discourage over-utilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Master’s level and deduct points accordingly. As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content. It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.

  • LopesWrite Policy

For assignments that need to be submitted to Lopes Write, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me. Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes. Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own? Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in Loud-cloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.

  • Late Policy

The university’s policy on late assignments is a 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies. Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances. If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect. I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension. As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.

  • Communication

Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me: Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class. Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.
