Option #2: Technology Impact on Healthcare Decision Making
For this assignment you will create a PowerPoint presentation you could deliver in this class to the instructor and your peers addressing the following:
Technological advances have changed the way medical care is practiced and delivered. Identify and describe three of the most significant clinical and/or information technological changes you have seen in the last five years. Discuss the influence each technological change on a specific aspect of healthcare. Consider the influence on decision-making and ethical choice from the patient and healthcare provider/professional’s perspective. End your evaluation by considering whether technology brings great benefits, but also produces new ethical dilemmas for health care based on your research and assessment. Use diagrams, graphics and pictures to demonstrate your points or support the types of technology identified, influence on ethical decisions and final evaluation.
Your presentation should meet the following requirements:
- Be four or five slides in length, with accompanying detailed presentation notes, not including the cover or reference slides.
- Be formatted according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements.
- Support your analysis by referencing and citing at least three credible sources other than the course textbooks, readings, or lecture. The CSU-Global Library is a good place to find these references.
- Use headings to organize your work.
Include presentation notes for each slide to support the slide content. These may be a part of the PowerPoint or in a separate Word document. [Note: do not submit this assignment as a pdf, as the presentation notes are not visible to the instructor.]
