Bookmarks Project

This section represents the contributions of our students to the resources for classes. In each class, students have been asked identify a website or web resource that may be useful to others taking the course or to those interested in a related subject area. The "bookmarks" are then submitted with explanations of the value the contributors believe they represent. Over time, this area offer the collective efforts of students who quite often are the best sources for classroom material.

I ran across this site while looking for some additional inspiration for coaching an employee who was receiving a promotion, but would start working for a manager who is commonly believed to be a difficult boss. The site helped me frame some more concrete ideas on managing up. Good site for motivational resources.

Tuckman's model of group stages of development has surely stood the test of time. Here is a site that explains the model's development and attempts to account for its longevity. Included are slight variations of the model, taking it a bit away from a linear progression, and the usual critiques of its overuse and generality. Worth of look if you like the model.

Tarah OrnelasGMAN 504 January 19th, 2015 Statistics in the news – “Deaths by medical mistakes hit records” I found this article very interesting in the fact that it highlights the severity of human error in the medical field. To think that over 400,000 people annually are dying from preventable issues, and that is is costing the nation $1 trillion each year is atrocious. I can’t imagine being the woman who underwent a bilateral mastectomy only to find out post surgery that there was a mix-up with the labs and she didn’t even have cancer. I am going to let that soak in for a minute. The fact that the medical community regularly invests in technology, and there is a constant stream of reporting for every aspect of the medical community, means there should be MORE done with this data. The data algorithms can be written to analyze test results, compare data points for patterns or outliers, and even for simple follow up or routine tasks. If we have this ability out there, then why aren’t we using it to prevent these costly errors? Enough lives are lost due to car accidents and illnesses, we shouldn’t have to worry about a doctor making a mistake that could cost us our lives, when it is preventable. I understand the with the simple fact that there are humans in the medical field, there will be human error, but this number can drastically be reduced with the proper implementation, use, and reporting of statistical analyses.     Presentation: http://prezi.com/dbq6nucpvqtn/?utm_campaign=share&utm_medium=copy Article Source URL:http://www.healthcareitnews.com/news/deaths-by-medical-mistakes-hit-records   Tarah Ornelas Wednesday, 28 January 2015
