Competing needs arise within any organization as employees seek to meet their targets and leaders seek to meet company goals

Competing needs arise within any organization as employees seek to meet their targets
and leaders seek to meet company goals. As a leader, successful management of these
goals requires establishing priorities and allocating resources accordingly.
Within a healthcare setting, the needs of the workforce, resources, and patients are
often in conflict. Mandatory overtime, implementation of staffing ratios, use of
unlicensed assisting personnel, and employer reductions of education benefits are
examples of practices that might lead to conflicting needs in practice.
Leaders can contribute to both the problem and the solution through policies, action,
and inaction. In this Assignment, you will further develop the white paper you began
work on in Module 1 by addressing competing needs within your organization.
To Prepare:
 Review the national healthcare issue/stressor you examined in your Assignment
for Module 1, and review the analysis of the healthcare issue/stressor you selected.
 Identify and review two evidence-based scholarly resources that focus on
proposed policies/practices to apply to your selected healthcare issue/stressor.
 Reflect on the feedback you received from your colleagues on your Discussion
post regarding competing needs.
The Assignment (4-5 pages):
Developing Organizational Policies and Practices
Add a section to the paper you submitted in Module 1. The new section should address
the following:
 Identify and describe at least two competing needs impacting your selected
healthcare issue/stressor.
 Describe a relevant policy or practice in your organization that may influence
your selected healthcare issue/stressor.
 Critique the policy for ethical considerations, and explain the policy’s strengths
and challenges in promoting ethics.
 Recommend one or more policy or practice changes designed to balance the
competing needs of resources, workers, and patients, while addressing any ethical
shortcomings of the existing policies. Be specific and provide examples.
 Cite evidence that informs the healthcare issue/stressor and/or the policies, and
provide two scholarly resources in support of your policy or practice recommendation
