...Chapter I INTRODUCTION “The family is the nucleus of civilization.” -Ariel and Will Durant: The family is the smallest unit of the society and the natural fundamental core of the community and consequently, it is considered as the primordial recipient of the nursing effort, which is contributory to the development, and progress of the community through active involvement and self – responsibilities of each constituent. It is composed of persons, male and female, being molded to be as one, working hand in hand to maintain a good atmosphere among the family members. A nucleus controls the functions of the entire cell and can be thought as the “command center” of the cell. The nucleus as well has different components which are all needed in order for it and the cell to function well, same as with the “commander” or the head of the family and the members who has different functions within the family. The impression or status of each family will always affect the status of the community as a whole. Community health nursing is a response to the health needs of the people. It does not focus on a particular class or family. It is comprehensive and general in approach. Community health service is not episodic as it requires continuous observation and monitoring of the community as a whole. Promotion and preservation of the health of its different clients (individual, family, group or community) is the primary goal of community health nursing. ...

Experiential Family Therapy Case Study

...Running Head: CASE ANALYSIS Case Analysis of Theresa Jimmie Cross Glenda J. Chandler Northcentral University Case History Theresa Cross was born in Sacramento, California on March 12, 1946. She was the youngest child in her family. Bill and Clara Tapp are from their mother’s previous marriage. Rosemary and Theresa were the daughters of Jim and Swannie Cross. Both Jim and Swannie gave preference to boys and Jim was rather disappointed that he only had daughters. Jim wanted a son to carry on his name. He charged Clara $60.00 a month for room and board in their home. Clara was also made to care for her two younger half-sisters while their mother worked. “Sometimes she was forced to stay home from school for weeks at a time” (McDougal, 1995, p. 14). Theresa was her mother’s favorite and Theresa fought Rosemary for the attention of their mother. Swannie was a strict mother and made her daughters do all the housekeeping. She never allowed her daughters to leave their own yard. Swannie let her son do pretty much whatever he wanted. She often made excuses for Bill when he was caught stealing. He did not see this as a second chance, but as permission to continue. He eventually ended up divorced and in prison for the remainder of his life. The preference to boys was apparent in this family due to the fact that the oldest daughter, Clara, never received a legal name until she was 20. She demanded that her mother sign the paperwork to grant her a full name on her birth......

Happiness in Blended Family Case Study

...establish new rituals (activities) as a “family.” They have discussed the possibility of taking all the children on a “family” vacation as well as would like to take their relationship to the next step and get married. The couple is concerned that their children may feel as if they are being forced to befriend the other children and do not want to cause any conflicts. Both parents would like to establish a relationship with the other’s children but do not want them to feel like they are trying to replace the respectable biological parent. The children like the idea of having additional siblings but the girls are concerned that mom will not have the time for “girl things” and that they will have to share their games with the boys. The boys are concerned that they will no longer get to go on their outings with just their dad and that they are concerned with giving up their personal space to the girls. In my opinion, these are all valid concerns but nothing that cannot be worked through with communication via family meetings and some compromise as well as reassurance from each parent to the children. It is great that the parents have both agreed to take things slowly in introducing the children to each other as well as to the other adult. The parents have also agreed to create new traditions and activities that will help to establish a feeling of togetherness. “All families struggle at times to be happy, but blended families often have bigger......

Business Ethics Case Study

...Business Ethics Case Study Peter Paulson's offer to provide the previous case documents to Steven Craig is professionally unethical but morally permissible. In addition, I believe that the offer was not theft but possession by entitlement and permission. His actions are a great example of how professional ethics and morals don't always align in the analysis of a case. Part (1) Peter Paulson's offer although helpful commits the Texas Board of Professional Engineers code. As an expert witness for a previous case against PPC, Peter Paulson was exposed to certain documents which would help with the current case against the same company. The code states in 137.63.c.4 that "The engineer shall not give, offer or promise to pay or deliver, directly or indirectly, any commission, gift, favor, gratuity, benefit, or reward as an inducement to secure any specific engineering work or assignment." In Peter's case he was asked to "secure specific engineering work" for a fee. The practice of sharing the public documents is legal and professionally ethical but when a fee is procured for the transaction the act becomes unethical. The documents in both cases were public because they were documents of court which could be obtained by any lawyer. When Peter placed a fee on documents that were public his actions were in violation of the code and made his offer professionally unethical. Part (II) Table 1. Line drawling of "The Offer" showing non-theft (Peter's perspective)......

...hit an object they produce echoes. This is the same concept that bats use to get around and that is how Daniel got the name Batman. Daniel was able to persevere because his mom refused to put limitations on him. In fact the mother was told by doctors and family that she needed to wrap Daniel up in some cotton as a toddler so that he would not hurt himself. However Daniel's mom chose to not limit him and let him learn things on his own as a seeing child.

Bangor Family Physicians Case Study

...Bangor Family Physicians Case Study Executive Summary & Stakeholders Bangor Family Physicians is a partner based medical group practice located in Maine. The practice consists of four family practice physicians, and a medical support staff. The medical support staff is made up of a practice manager, two receptionists, four nurses, two medical assistants, two billing clerks, and a laboratory technician. Additionally, Bangor Family Physicians employs a CPA to assist with taxes and financial advising. The key stakeholders are the four family physician partners, in which each physician holds an equal stake in the practice. Bangor Family Physicians Reimbursement There are two determinants to reimbursement for Bangor Family Physicians: a monthly salary and yearly profits after accounting for reinvestments into the company. Since the foundation of Bangor Family Physicians in 1986, the practice has used an equal pay compensation model as the reimbursement scheme of choice. Profits that are above overhead costs at the end of the year are portioned out equally to each partner, thus determining the overall amount the physician receives for the year. While this type of compensation model discourages overutilization and allocates risk among all physicians, it negatively affects productivity and does not reward efforts to improve quality. Such a system can only work on the basis that all physicians have the same skill and productivity levels and are equally motivated to......

Business Management Case Study

...era of advanced technology, decision-making is an integral part of almost all organizations. The people who are challenged in this kind of situation are organizational managers. They have to come up with concrete decisions that are in line with the objects of the companies they are serving. In this case, they are expected to make decisions without fearing the end results. The case in this article is not different. For instance; there are four decisions to be made concerning the best company to be hired to provide computer services for knowledge sharing.

What is PepsiCo's corporate strategy? Briefly identify the business strategies that PepsiCo is using in each of its consumer business segments in 2008. Desde a sua criação que a PepsiCo apostou sempre numa estratégia de diferenciação, não fosse a mesma resultante da fusão de uma marca de refrigerantes (Pepsi) com uma marca de snacks (Frito-Lay). Entre o fim dos anos 70 e o princípio dos anos 90, a empresa apostou ainda mais nesta estratégia, adquirindo cadeias de alimentação como a Pizza Hut, Taco Bell ou KFC, acabando por eventualmente vendê-las ou dar-lhes autonomia [4] [13]. No virar do século XXI, a PepsiCo voltou a focar-se nos produtos alimentares, adquirindo nos E.U.A. a Tropicana e a Quaker Oats Company e noutros países as marcas de bebidas locais que eram as concorrentes principais ou secundárias. Esta operação revelou-se um sucesso, pois todas as marcas estavam a crescer, embora lentamente, em todos os mercados, excepto a gama de refrigerantes com gás (carbonatados), nos E.U.A., onde o produto Pepsi estava a perder para a sua rival de sempre, a Coca-Cola, conforme se pode na Exhibit 8 do enunciado do Caso.

Family Business and Entrepreneurships in China Harilela Case-Study

...What must Aron do to gain the trust of the family and to lead the family into the 4th generation? To start with I would like to emphasise that Aron seems to be in the good position with gaining the trust of the family. However, he understands well that nowadays the business structure and way of doing business are changing very fast and dramatically. As a result, Harilela family have to correspond to this trends to continue its success in the modern world. Personally I would not say that I agree with all the changes Aron would like to implement, but it seems that he is on the right track of it in general. As far as I am concerned, the main problem appear when relatively young person, like Aron, comes to the board in a role of a chairman and starts performing “reforms” which are not in the parallel with others- more older and mature members. This could ruin Harilela family harmony, which was created and well treated during a number of years. From the other hand, in case Aron just join a board as a chairman and starts follow its old way of doing business, it could have a negative affect on the last one as will not be efficient in the nowadays environment. Obviously there is not sense to follow that path as it does not bring a success to anybody. The challenge is to become a leader for the old Harilela generation and create a synergy by proving that Aron can bring success to the entire family and the business. In my view, he already proved that he can add value to the......
