week 2 discussion

Case 6 (page 133) focuses on job description development while “taking over” this role of ensuring quality. What are some other elements of taking over as the designated professional staff leader for quality in an institution?

  1. Review the job description in Exhibit 6-1. What definition of quality and safety does it represent? How would you want to change it, if you were thinking of taking the job?
  2. Now consider the job description in Exhibit 6-2. What are the significant changes in the job that it suggests? Would it make it more attractive to you?
  3. Now consider the job description in Exhibit 6-3. What are the significant changes in this iteration of the job description? Assuming that they were requested by Dr. McLaughlin, what do you think that she was trying to accomplish with those changes?
  4. Which of the duties in that final job description would you personally like to handle or not handle? Why?
