Option #2: Trends in Human Resources in Healthcare
For the past 10 years, Methodist Hospital Health System (MHHS) celebrated the fact that 60% of its new hires in management positions were women and minorities. The MHHS leadership assumed that with such a practice, women and minorities would eventually represent at least 50% of their top management executives (vice president level and above). But then something unexpected happened. A few years ago, MHHS became concerned that its diversity program was not producing results. Instead of seeing an increase in the number of women and minorities in executive positions, the organization was observing a decline. Talented female and minority managers were leaving, draining the pool of capable and qualified staff.
To address this problem, MHHS founded the Task Force on Retention and Advancement of Women and Minorities in Executive Positions (TFRA). This task force aimed to pinpoint the reasons why female and minority executives were leaving by conducting a massive information-gathering initiative, which included interviewing female and minorities at all levels, as well as former employees. The team uncovered these main areas of concern: Limited opportunity for advancement Lack of mentoring, coaching, and networking Existing work and family issues Lack of succession planning Lack of positive culture and transparent communication about promotion and professional development Lack of relevant and effective training, job development, and employee empowerment opportunities Cultural bias toward women and minorities, and an “old boy” network system Organizational resistance to embrace diversity Uncompetitive salary and benefits
In response to these findings, MHHS must retool the workplace.
You are the CEO of MHHS and have been asked to present a plan to the Board of Directors for retooling the workplace to meet the goals of a women- and minority-friendly employer, and to have women and minorities eventually represent 50% of the top management. Your presentation must address strategies in the following areas: Recruitment, selection, and retention Communication Research Performance management Technology and innovation Change management Another area of healthcare management of your choosing Be innovative; think creatively. Your submission must be 13-15 pages in length. You must include title and reference pages, and a table of contents; however, these should not be included in the total page count. You have an outline and references list due in Week 6. This is worth 40 points toward your final Portfolio Project score. See the Module 6 folder for further details. Incorporate 20 credible and current references. Ten of these must be peer-reviewed articles. The CSU-Global Library is a good place to find these references. Format your paper according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements.

C.S. was a 49 year old female with severe peripheral arterial disease (PAD) who had underwent numerous operations to reestablish circulation in her legs. I was taking care of her every few months or so when her stent would clot off or she would need another bypass in her legs. She took her Plavix and aspirin daily and could not understand why she was continuing to have problems.
Pharmacokinetics, Pharmacodynamics, and Pharmacogenetics
Clopidogrel (Plavix) is a prodrug, meaning is must be converted by the liver into its active form using the cytochrome P-450 enzyme system (Arcangelo, Peterson, Wilbur & Reinhold, 2017). The most active enzyme in the metabolism of this drug is the CYP2C19 enzyme (Polasek, 2011). After conversion, it works to decrease platelet activation and subsequent aggregation and is commonly used in stroke, cardiac, and PAD patients. The binding of the active metabolite is not reversible and continues for the lifespan of the platelet (7-10 days), therefore it is important to stop the drug 7-10 days before procedures like surgery (Drugs.com, 2012).
Pharmacogenetics is the study of how an individual’s genotype effects how they respond to the drug (Arcangelo, Peterson, Wilbur & Reinhold, 2017). As a drug that relies on the body to produce the active metabolite, Clopridogrel depends upon a “healthy” or un-mutated CYP2C19 enzyme. Some populations carry an allele that decreases or even stops the activity of the CYP2C19 enzyme and subsequently makes drugs like Clopidogrel much less effective (Han et al., 2015). This can account for up to a 70% variability in the response to Clopidogrel and may be the reason C. S. is experiencing repeated stent thrombosis (Polasek, 2011). The availability of genetic testing can help practitioners individualize drug regimens to optimize care for patients like C.S. (Scott, 2012).
Plan of Care
For C.S., genetic testing might benefit her if it is available and affordable on her insurance plan. I would see if her family history includes PAD and if her family had issues with stent thrombosis as well. If genetic testing is not an option, changing her medication regime to something that does not rely on the CYP2C19 enzyme, such as ticagrelor (Brilinta), would be recommended. With any platelet inhibitor, she must be educated on the risk of bleeding and bleeding precautions for home. To reduce the risk of drug-herb interactions on bleeding time, I would screen her home med list for over the counter supplements such as Omega-3, garlic, ginger, etc. that may interact with the medication and increase bleeding risk (Arcangelo, Peterson, Wilbur & Reinhold, 2017).
