The variety of graphic representations of servant leadership models and other leadership/management .
Review the variety of graphic representations of servant leadership models and other leadership/management models listed below. You may search online for others as well. As you review the models, consider what you think are the most significant differences between servant leadership models and other models. Then either create your own graphic to visually represent your understanding of servant leadership or revise one of the existing graphics so that it better represents your understanding. If you revise an existing model, be sure to credit your original source.
Once you have created your model, compose a brief analysis (250 words) that addresses the following:
What are the most significant differences between servant leadership models and other models?

The four most commonly used designs for research studies are descriptive, correlational, quasi- experimenal, and experimental.
The four most commonly used designs for research studies are descriptive, correlational, quasi- experimenal, and experimental.”(Grove, Gray & Burns, 2015). Descriptive and correlational designs can be referred to as non-experimental designs because the focus is on examining variables as they naturally occur in environments and not in the implementation of a treatment by the researcher.
In experimental design researchers uses random assignment and they manipulate an independent variable around a controlled variable. A true experimental design there must be randomization, a control group and manipulation of a variable when examining the direct cause or predicted relationships between variables. In a quasi-experiment one of these aspects is missing.(Sousa, Driessnack & Menders, 2007).
A non experimental research design focuses on examining variables as they would naturally occur, types of nonexperimental research designs are: survey, case studies, correlation studies, comparative studies and descriptive studies. Non experimental designs have no random assignments, no control groups and no manipulation of variables, the research design is observation only.(Sousa, Driessnack & Menders,
Experimental research is the most powerful quantitative method. It has a rigourous control of the variables. It is an objective, systematic, and highly controlled investigation conducted for predicting and controlling phenomena (Grove, 2017). During the experimental design, the researcher uses random assignment. They also manipulate an independent variable around a controlled variable. In a true experimental design, there must be randomization, a control group, and manipulation of a variable while examining the direct cause or predicted relationships between variables.
Non-experimental research is research that lacks the manipulation of an independent variable, random assignment of participants to conditions or orders of conditions or both. It focuses on examining variables as they would naturally occur. Some of the examples of the experimental research are: survey, case studies, comparative studies, and descriptive studies. This type of research has no random assignments, no control groups, and no manipulation of variables. The research method is observation only.
Experimental research provides convincing evidence that changes with an independent variable. Thus, it results in the differences in a dependent variable. On the other hand, non-experimental research does not cause any changes in the independent variables.
prescriptions for patients without consultation, under my name and any other ANP or physician in the practice.

The first thing I would do is address the matter directly with Stephanie, I would find out how many times and over what span of time she has sent in prescriptions for patients without consultation, under my name and any other ANP or physician in the practice. I would also inform her of the scope of practice and the consequences of her actions. I would then have to do possible damage control by contacting each patient that was given a prescription by Stephanie and reevaluate them. If her actions caused any harm to a patient I would then take the matter to my group and deal with the problem on a higher level. For some allied health professionals, the combination of temptation and opportunity is too great. With ready access to prescription pads, or having been entrusted with authority to phone-in prescriptions to the pharmacy for their employer’s patients, some health professionals abuse the status (McCarty & Wynn, 2014).
According to McCarty & Wynn (2014) prescription fraud, frequently referred to as prescription “diversion” by law enforcement agencies, is illegal under both federal and state laws. Individuals, who unlawfully obtain prescription drugs usually are prosecuted in state courts, although in more serious cases the federal government may prosecute the offender in lieu of, or in addition to, state criminal proceedings. The Food and Drug Administration is the agency primarily responsible for classifying drugs as available by prescription only. The FDA acts according to its responsibilities under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. The FDA handles some of the enforcement work under the Act. and in cases of prescription fraud can impose a penalty of up to a year in jail and/or a fine of up to $1,000. However, states have complementary laws governing dispensing of prescriptions and imposing penalties for abuse and fraud to patients, after informing Stephanie of these consequences I would hope she would continue her actions (McCarty & Wynn, 2014).
POST – 2B
This situation violates the nurse practitioner and medical assistant’s scope of practice. The ultimate responsibility falls on the nurse practitioners. The nurse practitioners are responsible for the diagnosis, and treatment ordered. Since this order for the antibiotic was sent under the NPs license, the nurse practitioner is responsible for it. The first intervention is to phone the patient to apologize and tell him/ her about the circumstances of this occurrence. The nurse practitioner has o assess the patient for any complications or side effects, and to remind him/ her that he/ she should call the office if the symptoms worsen. It is also important to tell the patient what are the resolution steps that were taken and that the medical assistant was warned about this serious offense and what disciplinary actions were taken.
It is also important to discuss with the medical assistant what are the rules that will change with regards to prescriptions and that he/ she needs to follow. She has to fully understand that a second occurrence will be reported to the employer and possible grounds for termination and reportable to the board of nursing. This information is not meant to scare the medical assistant, but to help her understand the seriosity of this occurrence.
Going forward, the nurse practitioner should require the medical practitioner to report any prescription requests. It would be helpful to create a log in which the medical assistant can track all the new requests along with the symptoms reported by the patient. The log can be checked by the nurse practitioner every hour in between patients and he/ she can write the order that he/ she would like the patient to be on. According to Rim, Thomas, Hatch, Kelly, and Tyler (2018), having a centralized prescription refill system will save provider time, and will provide a shorter turnaround time for the refills.
Significant Contributions to Public Health – Part II
This is a continuation of your final project, which you started in Week 3. This last piece involves an analysis of how your individual’s contribution from the past continues to contribute to today’s public health system and how it might guide future work within the industry. As you recall, in week 3, you researched an individual and their contribution to community and public health. To begin, you need to review the feedback given to you from Week 3. Then, make the necessary revisions to Part I of this project. Then, you will be adding the second half to your project.
