• Instructions Deliverable: Develop one component of an evidence-based
resourcing plan. Scenario: The hospital leadership team has already
allocated the major capital expenditures for the heart failure clinic,
such as the facility, legal services, IT, and security services.
However, as a member of the nurse team, you have been asked to develop
one component of a resourcing plan for the next leadership meeting.
You may use any combination of documents (for example, a spreadsheet
or a table) in addition to explanatory information to convey
information clearly and succinctly. Choose one of the following:
Budget: • Apply evidence-based management strategies and best
practices for resourcing health care services. § Identify the business
plan budget categories and subcategories (not necessarily the actual
cost) to establish a new clinic. § Start-up expenses. § Examine fixed
and variable costs. § Capital budget items. § Examples: salary and
benefits, staffing mix, specialized equipment or materials, et cetera.
§ Contingency fund and parameters. • Apply legal and professional
standards for resourcing outpatient services. § Explain the alignment
to best practices and professional standards for cost effective
outpatient services. § How will uninsured or underinsured patients be
managed? • Describe management and accountability tools and procedures
used to manage health delivery services and patient outcomes. § What
data resources and tools analyze costs, health insurance, and
hospitalization services? § How will billing be handled? § How will
you determine if outpatient management is cost-effective? § How does
transparency impact the consumer? Staffing Plan: • Apply
evidence-based management strategies and best practices for resourcing
health care services. • Identify the disciplines and skill mix needed
for appropriate staffing. • Estimate staffing requirements by
discipline and staffing ratios (evidence-based). • Develop a sample
staffing schedule. • How will you staff to meet corporate diversity
goals or the needs of diverse patients? • Explain how delegation,
collaboration, negotiation will affect staffing plan. § How does a
union contract affect the staffing plan or schedule? § Examine the
Nurse Practice Act for your state. § How does the Nurse Practice Act
affect your staffing plan? • Apply legal and professional standards
for resourcing outpatient services. § Align your staffing plan to best
practices, the Nurse Practice Act for your state, scope of practice,
and the Joint Commission standards for outpatients. • Describe
management and accountability tools and procedures used to manage
health delivery services and patient outcomes. § How will you know if
staffing is cost-effective? § How will you know if staffing mix or
schedule impacts patient outcomes? Additional Requirements • Written
communication: Written communication should be free of errors that
detract from the overall message. • APA formatting: Resources and
in-text citations should be formatted according to current APA style
and formatting. • Length: The plan should be 3–4 pages in content
length, double-spaced. • Font and font size: Times New Roman, 12
point. • Number of resources: Support your plan with a minimum of
