Introduction of Project:
As a healthcare provider, you may or may not be responsible for financial and budget tasks, but you will encounter situations and issues, which will relate to financial management. Your project in this course is a threaded project and will provide you with an opportunity to better understand the literature on financial management in the healthcare setting. Each week you will work on an aspect of this project.
Week 1; Identify a problem
Identify a patient care problem with an impact on budget as a financial management issue in your workplace. Conduct a search for a minimum of two peer-reviewed articles that discuss the issue you have identified. Write a 2-3 page paper summarizing the literature you have found and describe how the literature helps to provide insight into the problem you have identified. Provide a short analysis of the role of the nurse in relationship to this problem as described in the literature.
