Assessment 2 Legal and Ethical Considerations

Assessment 2 Legal and Ethical Considerations

Assessment Instructions


Note: Complete the assessments in this course in the order in which they are presented.

For this assessment, you will develop a presentation to support an educational session that you plan to conduct for your clinical team that addresses the ethical and legal implications typically associated with the provision of coordinated care. Because you do not expect to be able to assemble all of your team members, in person, for this session, you have decided to add detailed speaker’s notes to your slides, record a voice-over track, and make the presentation available for team members to review at their earliest opportunity.

Before you begin developing your presentation:

Complete the Vila Health: Overseeing the Legal Process exercise, linked in the Required Resources. This interactive simulation will enable you to gather the information needed as the basis for your educational session.
Consider creating a Care Coordination Legal Responsibility table to help organize your thoughts about the legal implications of the issues associated with the patient you interviewed in the Vila Health simulation. A table is not required, but if you choose to create one, you may use the Care Coordination Legal Responsibility Table Template provided in the Suggested Resources or devise one of your own.
Note: Remember that you can submit all, or a portion of, your draft presentation to Smarthinking for feedback, before you submit the final version for this assessment. However, be mindful of the turnaround time of 24–48 hours for receiving feedback, if you plan on using this free service.

Presentation Tools
You may use Microsoft PowerPoint or any other suitable presentation software to create your slides. If you elect to use an application other than PowerPoint, check with your instructor to avoid potential file compatibility issues.

Use the speaker’s notes section of each slide to develop your talking points and cite your sources, as appropriate. If you need help designing your presentation, you are encouraged to review the various presentation resources provided for this assessment. These resources will help you to design an effective presentation, whether you choose to use PowerPoint or other presentation design software.

You have the option of either recording a voice-over track for your presentation or creating a video. In either case, you may use Kaltura Media, Adobe Connect, or other technology of your choice for your audio or video recording

If using Kaltura Media, refer to the Using Kaltura tutorial for directions on recording and uploading your video in the courseroom.
If using Adobe Connect, refer to the instructions and tutorials available from the Using Adobe Connect support page.
Note: If you require the use of assistive technology or alternative communication methods to participate in this activity, please contact Disability Services to request accommodations.
