Conduct your own examination of the literature or other sources to describe the difference between being a manager or being a leader

In health care, we often hear the words administration, management, or leadership used interchangeably. More often, there is reference to managers and leaders. Theorists and the literature articulate that there is a difference between a manager and a leader. Conduct your own examination of the literature or other sources to describe the difference between being a manager or being a leader. How are the two different and/or similar? Then, which of the two roles appeals most to you and why? Lastly, give an example of how a manager and a leader would approach the same operational challenge (you choose the challenge).

epidemiological profile outline report

Final Project: Epidemiological Profile Outline: Report

Objective:Epidemiological Profile Outline: Report.

For this assignment, you will create a Epidemiological Profile Outline: Report

The purpose of the document is to provide a set of guidelines to help profile writers produce integrated epidemiologic profiles and advise them concerning how to interpret epidemiologic data in ways that are consistent and useful in meeting the planning needs of both prevention and care programs.

You are encouraged to choose a specific disease and use it as basis for this project.

The paper will be 8-10 pages long. More information and due date will provide in the assignments link.


Students will create an Epidemiological Profile Outline: Report for the Disease of your choosing.The purpose of the document is to provide guidance to help writers create integrated epidemiologic profiles and advice on how to interpret the data in ways that are consistent and useful in meeting the planning needs of both prevention and care programs for specific diseases. Integrating prevention and care data should help to streamline the work of health department staff, Disease planning groups, and planning councils by reducing duplicated effort and by promoting consistency and comparability of data and terms in prevention as well as in care planning

What does leadership mean to you?

Leadership and Lifelong Learning

One of the defining characteristics of a profession is the requirement to remain current with advances in the field. The multiple professional organizations that reflect healthcare all have in common a focus on self-directed career development. This is especially important in a healthcare employment market where professionals will likely work for several organizations and possibly several types of jobs (e.g., management, clinical, and technical) during their careers.

Relying on your employer alone to offer the types of learning opportunities that are necessary to continue to adapt to a changing healthcare system may be insufficient. The leadership and lifelong learning study focuses on development or refinement of the knowledge, skills, and abilities inherent in successful leadership, underscored by a continuous process of self-motivated education and development.

This exercise also marks a shift from the professor providing source documents to you conducting your own research. Some resources are offered in the Suggest Readings section of the Schedule (below), but you are encouraged to explore.

  • Reflective Journal

One of objectives is to help you to define who you are as a leader and to explore how you lead. You will reflect on previous course content, suggested readings, and your independent research on different leadership perspectives as they relate to you as a leader. In designated weeks, you will share your reflections in an online journal entry. This is an opportunity for you to think deeply about your vision of leadership and to foster the inquisitiveness that personifies highly successful leaders, as well as to discuss how your vision is influenced by your research, to consider how you might change your behavior within your organization as a result of what you are learning, and to identify gaps in your own knowledge and behaviors with regard to who you hope to become as a leader and how you hope to lead.

Reflection prompts will be provided in select Discussion folders. However, these are provided here to guide your thinking rather than limit your thinking; so feel free to introduce any additional aspects that influence your thinking about leadership. Please answer the questions listed in a APA standard essay format – 12 point, Time New Roman font – 2 pages. Please use examples that pertains to healthcare organizational leadership

a. Reflection Questions

Reflect on the notion of leadership. What does leadership mean to you? How do you define leadership? Provide an example that details how you view leadership. Please use 2 of the suggestd reading and one of your own.
