Describe the project and explain the purpose and justification for the project.Explain the goals and objectives of the project.

Assignment: Project Management Planning Because many aspects of health care operations are changing health care administrators oversee a wide variety of projects. These can include logistical projects such as moving a department to a new facility technology-related projects such as introducing a new system or piece of equipment or process-related projects such as initiating new procedures for patient discharge. If the project has any degree of complexity it will benefit from a project management approach. Administrators and managers in health care need to have a working understanding of project management: why it is important what it accomplishes and the repercussions on the organization if its basic tenets are ignored or not followed. Within project management the project plan is the cornerstone of successful execution of a project. The project plan is designed to guide the process and execution of a project. For this Assignment you will develop a project plan using as your focus a work-related project you are doing now or will be doing in the future. Part 1: Service Level Agreement It is suggested that the project you select be manageable in scope and not overly complex. You will assume that the objectives and scope of the project you have selected have been vetted and approved. The next step is to develop a project plan. You will develop a project management plan that will walk through key steps of the project management process. The objective of this Assignment is not a deep dive into the full intricacies of project management. Rather it is to ensure that as a health care administrator you have a solid theory and practical knowledge of key aspects of the project management process. For Part 1 of this Assignment you will create a Service Level Agreement (35 pages) which includes the following: Project Description Purpose and Objectives: The project description delineates key aspects of a project. In 12 pages your project plan should:Describe the project and explain the purpose and justification for the project.Explain the goals and objectives of the project.Describe the requirements for the project.Explain the tangible measures for acceptance criteria used to achieve project success.Project Scope: The project scope defines the scope of the project and how the scope will be managed. In 23 pages your project plan should:Summarize in detail the expected deliverables for the project.Explain the acceptance criteria for the project.Explain the project assumptions risks and constraints.Roles and Responsibilities: By definition a project is a unique undertaking with a beginning and an end point. One responsibility of management is to determine who will be a part of the project team (including designation of a project manager). Ask yourself Who needs to be on this team to ensure that project goals are successfully met? Consider as well the importance of communication among team members. What communication needs will each individual have? With whom will they communicate and how?Using the Project Roles and Responsibilities Matrix template in the Learning Resources list the names* and titles of all individuals or entities involved in the project. Indicate whether each stakeholder is internal or external to the project organization.Note: For privacy purposes please use pseudonyms.Identify the internal and external stakeholders for a project.Distinguish the roles and responsibilities of the project stakeholders.Explain how to communicate with project stakeholders. Part 2: Project Schedule There are many different methodologies for planning and scheduling a project. For this Assignment you will develop a Gantt chart that depicts key project activities time allotted for each activity and when each activity is scheduled to begin. To do so you will need to consider dependencies. Some activities will be sequential others may be simultaneous and some may overlap. Note: You may create your own Gantt chart using Excel or search for and download a Gantt chart template. Using a Gantt chart construct a project schedule.In 23 paragraphs of your project plan explain the estimating techniques used to develop your project schedule. Provide rationale for why these techniques will be effective. Part 3: Strategies for Maintaining the Project Budget A project begins with an approved budget. Too often however unless the budget is meticulously managed budget overruns occur. Health care administrators must ensure that the project management process includes careful oversight on spending. In 23 pages describe the project budget key success factors including the following: Analyze at least three strategies that can be applied for due diligence and maintaining oversight of the project budget.Explain at least two challenges each of these strategies might present and identify opportunities for improvement.Compare the positive outcomes that might result from each strategy. Part 4: Risk Management Quality Management and Sustainability Even the most straightforward and well-planned project can be impacted by unexpected circumstances. Anticipating risks is a key part of project management and one that a health care administrator or manager must ensure is taken into consideration by the project team. Additionally If not carefully monitored budget and time constraints can take a toll on the quality of a project. Create a 24 page risk management and quality management plan which includes the following: Describe how you plan to manage risks for your project.Analyze strategies for managing quality within your project.Analyze strategies for sustainability of your project.Describe at least two tools and/or techniques you plan to use to manage quality and defend why you chose those tools.

Explain the acceptance criteria for the project.Explain the project assumptions risks and constraints.

Can Dr. Green remain objective in her work with Ava when she also sees her in class? Why or why not? How might this dual relationship impact her counseling work with Ava? H

Human Service Workers are often faced with the task of ethical decision-making. When making these decisions, they must be able to adequately support the decision that has been made. As we discussed in class this may require them to refer to their code of ethics, their agency’s policies and procedure manual, and the law. For this assignment, you will be given a case study, and you will need to respond to the questions that follow the case. When responding to the questions, you will need to refer to the text, the code of ethics, and at least one scholarly journal article beyond our course materials to help you make your decision and demonstrate support for your position. Your paper should be a minimum of 3 pages with a maximum of 5 pages, not including the title page and the reference page. You are also required to follow APA format for this assignment, double space, and utilize Times New Roman 12 point font. Paper must contain an introduction and conclusion.

Case Study:
Joy Green is a Psychologist with the Happy Hearts University Counseling Center. She also teaches an Introduction to Psychology class at Happy Hearts University.
Dr. Green has been treating 19 year-old Ava Jones for the past year. Ava began seeing Dr. Green after her parents were both killed in a car crash last year. Ava has worked through many layers of grief and loss, but continues to battle with depression. Feelings of abandonment and loneliness are the biggest triggers of depression for Ava and have, at times, caused suicidal ideation in her. She has recently begun to articulate these feelings of abandonment to Dr. Green, but they are a constant struggle for her. On several occasions, Ava has mentioned to Dr. Green that she would not have been able to get through this horrific ordeal without her help. She advised that she has begun to think of Dr. Green as a surrogate mother of sorts, knowing that she is the one person who is a stable source of support for her as she struggles in school, sorts out relationships with friends and boyfriends, and forges ahead with no parents and no other family members.
This semester, Dr. Green noticed that Ava has enrolled in her Introduction to Psychology class. Dr. Green initially decided that she should drop Ava from the class, fearing that she would not be able to differentiate between her role as Ava’s Psychologist and her role as Ava’s Professor. Dr. Green decided that Ava has already experienced too much loss and she began to worry about how dropping Ava from her class would affect Ava’s emotionally stability – and impact all of the hard work they have already done together. Dr. Green decided to keep Ava in her class, but brought up the issues of confidentiality and dual relationships with Ava in a session just before classes began. Ava reported that she understood the difference between Dr. Green’s roles and she stated that she would not discuss class in her treatment sessions and vice versa.
One month passed.
In treatment, Ava had done exceptionally well. It was nearing the time in treatment when Dr. Green and Ava would revisit their treatment plan and decide how, if at all, to proceed. Ava had already accomplished 5 out of 6 of her treatment goals; Dr. Green and Ava had bumped the number of sessions back from weekly to monthly; and Ava started to speak with her distant Aunt on a more regular basis, allowing her to form a connection with the only family she had left.
In class, Ava sat in the back row, never participated, and occasionally fell asleep. When it came time to grade the first set of papers, Dr. Green found herself trying to add more points to various parts of Ava’s paper – even when Ava did not deserve them. Dr. Green knew Ava’s history and her struggles in life and she wanted to make at least one part of Ava’s life easier. Dr. Green grappled with whether or not to discuss these feelings with Ava in her treatment session. She did not know if honesty with Ava would impact Ava’s role as a student or Ava’s progress in treatment, and she began to believe that honesty would actually create even more issues within their relationship. Dr. Green began to question her decision to keep Ava in her class…..the drop/add period was quickly coming to an end….but Ava’s treatment was likely coming to an end, as well…what should she do?

Questions:
1. How ethical do you consider Dr. Green’s behavior based upon principles established in the Code of Ethics and ranked in the Ethical Principles Screen? Do you believe that Dr. Green should continue to see Ava as a client or keep Ava in her class or both or neither? Why or why not?
2. How could another provider oppose your view using the Ethical Principles Screen and Code of Ethics?
3. Compared to the great potential for harm that can exist in a sexual dual relationship, how dangerous does this situation seem?
4. Can Dr. Green remain objective in her work with Ava when she also sees her in class? Why or why not? How might this dual relationship impact her counseling work with Ava? How might it impact her ability to objectively teach Ava in this class?
