Planned Change Change occurs everywhere. One doesn’t have to be a part of a major corporation to encounter change, however one of the main features that distinguish a contemporary organization is planned change. According to several intellectuals, change isn’t the effect of extraordinary outcomes produced by a certain assembly of individuals for a certain goal, but instead it is an essential human act and occurs with human social communications (Choi M., & Ruona, W., 2011). Change is only successful when an organization’s members alter their at-work behaviors in a suitable way. When the success of a change depends on one’s members, then an organization must take special care and consideration to ensure that the change is strategic, detailed and met without major opposition. Any disapproval must be confronted head on and have thoughtful conclusions in order to put disagreements at rest and have a positive change. Identification of a Problem Healthcare is multidisciplinary; for effective care, many facets need addressed from various diverse disciplines. Psychiatric health is no different. When thinking holistically, a patient gets care from the doctors, nurses, therapists, nursing assistants and care coordinators just to name a few, why than do we only report to each other when reporting on the patient? At my facility, multidisciplinary care is encouraged, but rarely utilized to it’s fullest potential. Currently nurses give report to other nurses, assistants give report to other assistants, doctors get report from the nurses only and the therapist never talk to anyone. This is a problem. How can the care coordinator do their job to the best of their ability without all of the information on the patient? Addressing the Issue Throughout the hospital, several other floors do multidisciplinary team rounding. One floor has the nurse and the doctor do bed side rounding in front of the patient and their family increasing patient satisfaction because they feel like part of the team. Psychiatry is a little difficult in that manner, however, teaming in front of the patient is often difficult and not

possible. Instead, what I am proposing is to do a multidisciplinary teaming in a room with the doctors, nurses, assistants, therapists and care coordinators.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
