Discussion 14: Healthcare administration or management

This week, you will develop an APA formated short paper detailing the following:

Topic related to healthcare administration or management and your rationale for your choice.

An outline of the project including subtopics you will cover.

Proposed sources (where you plan to get your scholarly resources)

List of targeted companies for research (if applicable)

A personal Timeline of your project (use this timeline to develop as set of weekly milestones and goals so you can keep pace with the course). Attach the timeline as an appendix to your rationale paper.

FOLLOW this template – I attached below.

Please submit this assignment as ONE word document with a clear heading above each section of the assignment. For example, Topic and its rationale is a heading, etc. There will be four headings (see above). Title you file LAST NAME_ INITIAL CAPSTONE WEEK ONE.

If you are doing a work-related project of identifying a problem and working toward a resolution, you will still follow the above steps. If you choose this option, you will follow the same steps as those for the research paper. In essence, your research paper will be the identification of a problem, the analysis of the problem, the solution design, and the implementation of the solution. This assignment is due by Sunday 11:59 pm (Eastern Time)

The topic: Must be related to health care administration. You can choose any health care related topic or issue, however you focus needs to be on administration, examples include: management, leadership, policy development, advocacy, technology implementation among others. (include as many as possible).


You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
