Effective leaders make people feel that even the most difficult problems can be tackled productively. (Fullan, 2004, p6) In what ways is this true in relation to change management?

Reflection, “The worst experience as a leader in my life”
January 17, 2020

Overview: As a
community of practice, your task for this week is to  collaborate with
professionals across the health care system. With your  community of
practice, in the Discussion, find a gap in care or social  determinant
that often results in poor health care outcomes. You will  begin to take
the lead in advocating for and collaborating with others  to improve
the health care outcomes for populations at risk.

Practicum Discussion: During this week, you will identify a
 population at risk in your community. This population will be the basis
 for your Practicum Discussions and your individual presentations over
 the next 6 weeks, as well as the focus of your final PowerPoint
 presentation in Week 6. To review, a population is a group of
 individuals who share a common environmental or personal
characteristic,  such as obese individuals who are at risk for diabetes
or  cardiovascular disease (populations at risk) or those individuals
who  are otherwise healthy and could stay healthy if they do not develop
 risky behaviors (populations of interest). An example of this is
 teenagers who don’t yet smoke but might consider it due to peer
pressure  (Stanhope & Lancaster, 2016). Some of the topics you might
consider  are vaccination compliance, obesity rates among children and
adults,  teenage pregnancy, or infectious diseases such as Norwalk
virus, genital  warts, or sexually transmitted diseases/infections. You
might look also  at emerging public health problems such as Chagas or
the Zika virus.  Some of the places you might consider looking for
information to  substantiate and support your ideas about populations at
risk in your  communities are your local health department, the CDC,
and the many  evidence-based websites that the CDC supports, such as the
CDC Wonder  (http://wonder.cdc.gov/). You may also review the work of
other  community groups that focus on improving health care outcomes for
your  community. You should begin to support your selection of
population and  ideas about their health care problems through the use
of health data  and scholarly literature.

Please address the following points in your Practicum Discussion:

  • Briefly describe your community and then describe your practice setting.
  • What are the determinants of health in your community?
  • What are the most prevalent health problems in your community or in your practice?
  • Choose a population at risk and describe the health problem specific to that population. Remember t
