Read: Breaking the Rules for Better Care
The required reading overviews the effect ambiguity can have in decision-making and leadership.
1. Analyze the processes utilized for identifying antiquated or ineffective rules. Could those processes be utilized regularly to assist leaders in identifying waste and opportunities for change?
2. What types of ambiguity are most damaging to an organization? Explain your reasoning.
Part 2: 400 words LOOK AT SAMPLE Below.
Consider what you read about the identification of rules that limited the quality of care and answer the following questions on the discussion board. Write a response to fully and creatively address the question. Consider the example in your required reading.
How could the leadership prevent the creation of additional rules that may become an issue in the future?
What type of long-term planning could be established? Explain your reasoning.
SAMPLE:
How could the leadership prevent the creation of additional rules that may become an issue in the future?The creation of future additional rules is more or less inevitable due to the potential lack of re-evalutation that may occur from the leadership team or additional rules that may serve to provide clarify to rules that are already set in place. That being said, the leadership team could prevent the creation of additional rules by making sure that the current rules in place have enough clarify and are precise enough to not create any confusion within the team. Additional rules can be prevented also by amending and consistently looking at the rules already in place and making sure that they are still valid in the workplace, and this can be ensured by making sure all vital stakeholders are providing input on what is important and what can be removed.
What type of long-term planning could be established? Explain your reasoning.Long-term planning that could be established may be to include all stakeholders and essential personnel on the team in monthly leadership meetings. This can serve to ensure that transparent communication amongst all levels are occurring and that everyone is involved and heard. Including these parties can also help with progressing the mission and values of the company, alongside including everyone in on the potential plans that the leadership team would like to pursue moving forward. These meetings will also make everyone aware of what is working well and what needs to be amended on a monthly basis, allowing for easier pivoting or persevering.

Part 5: IMPORTANT 900-1000 words
Consider the meta-ethnographic review of gender determinants of vaccination status in children whose abstract is reproduced here:
“Using meta-ethnographic methods, we conducted a systematic review of qualitative research to understand gender-related reasons at individual, family, community and health facility levels why millions of children in low-and middle-income countries are still not reached by routine vaccination programmes. […] Key words were built around the themes of immunization, vaccines, health services, health behavior, and developing countries. Only papers, which reported on in-depth qualitative data, were retained. Twenty-five qualitative studies, which investigated barriers to routine immunisation, were included in the review. These studies were conducted between 1982 and 2012; eighteen were published after 2000. The studies represent a wide range of low-to middle income countries including some that have well known coverage challenges. We found that women’s low social status manifests on every level as a barrier to accessing vaccinations: access to education, income, as well as autonomous decision-making about time and resource allocation were evident barriers. Indirectly, women’s lower status made them vulnerable to blame and shame in case of childhood illness, partly reinforcing access problems, but partly increasing women’s motivation to use every means to keep their children healthy. Yet in settings where gender discrimination exists most strongly, increasing availability and information may not be enough to reach the under immunised. Programmes must actively be designed to include mitigation measures to facilitate women’s access to immunisation services if we hope to improve immunisation coverage. Gender inequality needs to be addressed on structural, community and household levels if the number of unvaccinated children is to substantially decrease.”
Considering this review, answer the following questions:
1.If you were working in a rural community health clinic in the United States, what generalizable knowledge might you be able to take from this meta-ethnography? Why?
2.How might participatory action synthesis help mitigate any potential issues with the studies in the review?
3.List at least two areas where you would want to use PAS to make sure that researcher bias didn’t distort the findings. (Discount any logistical problems that might arise with conducting a PAS over such a large geographic scale.)
[Note: you do not need to read the whole study, but if you want to refer to it, it can be found here: Merten, S., Martin Hilber, A., Biaggi, C., Secula, F., Bosch-Capblanch, X., Namgyal, P., & Hombach, J.

have done on your own (e.g., building something). Discuss why you became
involved in each of the activities above and what specifically influenced each

immersion, heavy work load, and long-term commitment – fit with your own
aims, values, and motivations?
