Mini Essay

This assignment gives you the opportunity to explore ethical perspectives in film. In 500-600 words, please consider the three primary ethical schools we have explored in the class: virtue ethics, teleological, and deontological ethics. Choose a film, and then identify the primary school of thought that is best reflected in the film. This activity aligns with module outcomes 1, 3 and 5.

Content Requirements:

  • Specifically refer to at least two scenes in the film as evidence for the school of thought that is best reflected in the film.
  • Quote dialogue from the film and provide some context for the scenes you’re discussing and analyzing.
  • Remember to discuss why the other two schools may not strictly apply to the film. Or perhaps you can argue that the two other schools are present in some of the decisions or actions of some minor characters, but they do not necessarily dominate the film.
  • Speculate as to why a specific ethical school dominates this film. Does the topic lend itself to the particular ethical view? Does the setting or historical period of the film lend itself to a certain ethical view? Has the director stated or implied what was ethically important when he or she made the film?
  • Read and quote from 1 movie review and your readings to help clarify or support any of your ideas.

This is the second part to the first question I posted. ( Below is the information for the proposed change)


Creating a balanced scorecard for the new stroke nurse position is critical. The balanced scorecard will track improvements to the quality of patient outcomes and financial outcomes (Jeffs, Merkley, Richardson, Eli, & McAllister, 2011). With the balanced scorecard allows for leadership to see where and how to grow the new stroke nurse position. 

Collecting data is how you can justify if the new change is working “Create a Balanced Scorecard of Robust Measures, Meaningful Targets, and Strategic Initiatives,” 2014). Data collection is mandated by the joint commission to maintain comprehensive stroke certification. The stroke nurse will collect and monitor patients progress during admission and give follow-up calls around up to 90 days after discharge from the hospital. This will allow for leadership to see an improvement in the outcome of stroke patients. After six months the collected data from before stroke nurse and after stroke nurse can be compared. The hospital is expected to have an increase in a stroke patient with the new comprehensive stroke certification. This will create an increase in revenue which will help offset the cost of the stroke nurse program.

Section 4: Budgeting and Timeline Tools

As you have been examining this week, budgeting and timeline tools are vital for determining necessary resources and planning for a proposed change. For your Course Project, you use these types of tools to assess resources that may be required for the successful implementation of your strategic plan.

To prepare: Review the information on budgeting in this week’s Learning Resources. Which tools (e.g., Revenue Projection Model, Capital Budgeting Analysis, Depreciation Calculator, Profit and Loss Projection) would be most useful for developing your strategic plan?  Use one or more budgeting tools to outline the financial resources for your proposed change. Reflect on any challenges that arise as you evaluate the financial resources required for this change now and in the future. Review the information on PERT and other timeline tools in this week’s Learning Resources, including Dr. Huston’s presentation in the media program. Use PERT or another tool to analyze and represent the activities that need to be completed to successfully plan and implement your proposed change. Be sure to note dependencies (e.g., a task/milestone that must be completed in order to trigger the next step) and realistically assess the minimum time needed to complete the entire project.  

To complete: Outline the financial resources for your proposed change. Describe the budgeting tool(s) you used to arrive at these determinations. Explain what challenges, if any, you encountered through the budgeting process. Provide documentation (e.g., Excel worksheets) to support your analysis. Outline the timeline for the implementation of your proposed change using PERT or another timeline tool. Consider how your timeline can allow leeway for variance. By Day 7

Topic 2 DQ 1 .        BY 3/6

Social Determinants Of Health (SDOH) are conditions in the environments in which people are born, live, learn, work, play, worship, and age that affect the health, functioning and quality of life- outcomes (Healthy People, 2020). Five key areas of SDOH were developed by Healthy People 2020- such as economic stability, education, social and community contact,  health, and health care; and neighborhood and the built environment.

Human beings are social creatures, deeply influenced by how we participate in society, and our social and physical surroundings. The SDOH includes mostly the conditions of the environment- social and physical in which we spend our lives that affect our health, functioning, and quality of life. 

The external factors such as a person’s income and socio-economic status are directly affecting his/her health. Higher-income allows for basic material consumption that is important for health including nutrition, safe housing, recreation and access to medical care (White Paper, 2018).

The chain of infection model is used to understand the process of disease transmission. The spread of infection is described as a chain with six links. They are a pathogen, a reservoir, a port of exit,  mode of transmission,  a port of entry, and a host. A break in any link of the chain of infection can prevent the occurrence of a new infection.  Following the standard rules of contact isolation, using the personal protective equipment the right way,  following safe injection practices are some of the ways the nurse can break the infection chain.

Social determinants of health refer to the factors in the environment that can significantly affect a person’s health. These factors include accessibility to healthcare, the natural environment, education and financial strength of the individual (Green, 2018).

The social determinants of health contribute to the development of diseases when the determinants are on the negative side. When the family has a poor income, it can lead to poor living conditions such as lack of education, poor living conditions such as overcrowding, poor ventilation and improper sanitation, poor nutrition, and little or no access to healthcare. Conditions such as asthma, obesity and diabetes are more prevalent among individuals who are most often affected by the social determinants of health. A family who is unable to provide proper nutrition for its members will be what they can afford and not necessarily what is nutritious/healthy and as a result ends up being obese or have diabetes.

The fundamental idea that the communicable disease chain model is designed to represent is the fact that all links of the chain is needed in order for a disease to be transmitted and once there is a missing link or break/disruption of a link then that will result in a break of transmission of the disease (GCU, 2011). The nurse is able to break the a link in the transmission by taking precautions when dealing with communicable diseases by wearing proper gears and using them as recommended, educate patient and family members about the transmission of diseases and how to prevent them such as covering mouth and nose when sneeze or cough and sanitize hands immediately, avoiding others who may be sick or have an infection, disposing of garbage properly, ensure meals are properly cooked and getting appropriate vaccines. Handwashing is a major factor in preventing the transmission of communicable diseases especially in the healthcare settings.
