Agency Heads and Rulemaking

Agencies such as the Health & Human Services Agency, the Department of Justice, and the Environmental Protection Agency enforce laws. For example, they enforce rules that are set to ensure food is safe or hospitals operate with high standards. Due to this, it is possible that these agencies want a stake in rulemaking that impacts their agency. However, should they? Or does that overstep their boundaries?

Provide an explanation of two ways in which the head of the Health & Human Services Agency, the Department of Justice, or the Environmental Protection Agency might influence rulemaking on a specific issue. Then explain the degree to which you think agency heads should influence rulemaking. Justify your explanation with academic resources.

Note: Every post should include an in-text Bluebook citation, if referencing cases, as well as a citation in the reference list.

How to respond to a students response

The idea of “being called to a purpose” to me is a predestined calling by a higher power. In my thinking on this subject, I believe that we are all by the grace of God born with a purpose such as being a lawyer, accountant, veterinarian, a physician, teacher and etc. We may have an inclination as we start to get older figuring out what we are good at and these are characteristics that God gave each and everyone of us. Christ wants us to open our eyes and recognize our potential traits within ourselves and embrace them to grow in his will. We may stray but the path that God has destined for us will always be there and we end up back on the right path. Our reading assignment from the Holy Bible states ” And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28, King James Version). This scriptures says it best in regards to the purpose of God. The purpose and it’s relevance to the transformation of healthcare can be tough as a physician or another staff that works within today’s healthcare system. With U.S and it’s fragmented healthcare, its kind of like each to their own. The mentality has gone from caring for the patient’s needs to basing the needs on if the patient has any coverage and what profit can be made from the service. Some with no fault of their own as trying to figure out how to stay afloat and caring for patients is a challenge within itself. The last couple of years, the healthcare has gotten a bad reputation that patient’s who do go in for care often question every aspect of their care and cost associated. Those people in the healthcare were called for a purpose but with the changes in the system it does make it harder to distinguish what direction to take.

Writing a Thoughtful Response
When writing a response, I want you to really focus on how you react to the piece you read. You may be able to answer several of the questions raised below in your response. You should aim to address at least 2. Be thorough and thoughtful. Use quotes to demonstrate.

  1. What does the text have to do with you, personally? Your life? Every article we are presented with will, likely, have some connection to the world we live in. What’s the connection here.
  2. How much does the text agree or clash with your view of the world, and what you consider right and wrong? Use several quotes as examples of how it agrees with and supports what you think about the world or your experiences, about right and wrong, and about what you think it is to be human.
  3. How did you learn, and how much were your views and opinions challenged or changed by this text, if at all? Did the text communicate with you? Why or why not? How did your views change or get strengthened (or perhaps, of why the text failed to convince you). Please do not write “I agree with everything,” since there is likely, at least, a tiny point with which you disagree. Use quotes to illustrate your points of challenge, or where you were persuaded, or where it left you disinterested. The templates in Chapter 4 will be valuable for this.
  4. How well does it address things that you, personally, care about and consider important to the world? How does it address things that are important to your family, your community, your ethnic group, to people of your economic or social class or background, or your faith tradition? If not, who does or did the text serve?
  5. Reading and writing “critically” does not mean the same thing as “criticizing,” in everyday language (complaining or griping, fault-finding, nit-picking). Your “critique” can and should be positive and praise the text if possible, as well as pointing out problems, disagreements and shortcomings.
  6. To sum up, what is your overall reaction to the text? Would you read something else like this, or by this author, in the future or not? Why or why not? To whom would you recommend this text? Why might this text be useful? How does it contribute to the “conversation?”

RE: SOCW6103: Relapse Prevention Assignment (wk5)

Relapse prevention developed from the understanding that alcohol and other substance dependencies are difficult to treat. Even if treatment is successful, there is always the risk of relapse. Rates of relapse vary depending on factors such as the type of treatment and the substance used.

As your Capuzzi & Stauffer text notes, it is estimated that 90% of alcoholics return to drinking within a four-year period and 40–60% of drug users relapse. With the prevalence of relapse, it is important for addiction professionals to work closely with their clients to identify risks for relapse and to work with their clients to develop strategies to avoid relapsing.

For this Assignment, review the video, “Experiencing a Traumatic Event,” and consider how the traumatic event resulted in the individual seeking addiction treatment. Support your response with references to the resources and current literature.

Submit a 2- to 3-page paper that addresses the following:

  • Create a relapse prevention plan for Greg.
  • Identify the supports and risk factors for Greg’s possible relapse.
  • Describe the factors that will likely contribute to Greg’s relapse .
  • Describe the specific interventions that you would suggest.
  • Explain the lifestyle changes that you would suggest Greg implement to avoid relapse.

Finding and Developing the Right Employees

As professionals in the industrial/organizational (I/O) field, we may have companies as our customers but employees are our business. They represent us to customers, they make our products, they fix our problems, and they bring us new ideas. Very few companies would succeed if it were not for their employees. The key is finding the right employees. We need to attract and select the right people and then work hard to keep and develop them. The job is never done!

Consider the industrial/organizational (I/O) perspective and address the following questions:

  1. You need to conduct a job analysis for a phlebotomist. Which techniques would you use to accomplish this and why?
  2. Employee-referral programs can be an effective method of increasing your candidate pool. What are the advantages and disadvantages to an employee-referral program?
  3. The employee selection process is filled with human interaction. What is the role of human judgment in selection decisions?
  4. You are training managers on how to work with employees with performance issues. What three suggestions would you give managers when it comes to goal setting and employee performance?

Your response should directly address each question, providing references and examples to support your points. You should use at least two scholarly sources, cited in APA format.

Submission Details:

  • Write your initial response in a minimum of 300–400 words. Apply APA standards to cite sources.
