Uncategorized

Write a paper (1,000-1,250 words) on the concept of governance within a health care organization. Address the following:

1) Corporate structure and how it impacts the effectiveness of governance.

2) Various roles of governance within the organizations and how they should interact within a team setting.

3) Concerns to consider when developing and strengthening a team culture. For example:

a) Team members working independently or at cross-purposes.

b) “Turf battles” that can slow or impede the accomplishment of project purposes.

c) The tone of meetings and interactions that can be seen as negative, manipulative, directive, and/or secretive.

d) Failure to properly apply governance concepts.

e) A discussion of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and its impact on governance and senior management.

4) Prepare this assignment according to the APA guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.

5) This assignment uses a grading rubric. Instructors will be using the rubric to grade the assignment; therefore, students should review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the assignment criteria and expectations for successful completion of the assignment.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
