Week 3 – Assignment: Analyze Staffing and Controlling Issues
Personnel are the single greatest and largest resource available to healthcare administrators. As a group, personnel and staffing represent the largest cost, but are also the means by which a healthcare organization can fulfill its mission.
Imagine that you are a clinical department manager for a large hospital system. Leadership has decided that a service line is needed in a new medical area. One example of a newer medical field is medical genetics, but others exist. Select one or create your own for this assignment. Regardless of the field, leadership is anxious to better understand the staffing needs—including management, physicians, nursing, support staff, and others—that will be needed for this new area of service.
Prepare a PowerPoint presentation for leadership that reviews the overall role of staffing and for specific needs, such as those mentioned above. Explain how you will determine what and how many staff members will be required. Note that you do not need to provide actual numbers, but an understanding of your approach is needed. Describe the staff reporting structure in the new department and why you feel the proscribed structure will be effective. Finally, indicate how you will recruit for these new positions.
Incorporate appropriate animations, transitions, and graphics as well as speaker notes for each slide. The speaker notes may be comprised of brief paragraphs or bulleted lists.
Support your presentation with at least three scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources may be included.
Length: 12-15 slides (with a separate reference slide)
Notes Length: 100-150 words for each slide
Be sure to include citations for quotations and paraphrases with references in APA format and style where appropriate.
