As the future generation, or speaking for your children, what would you tell Ron DeSantis is the most critical environmental issue facing Florida today?

For this assignment you will select one of the topics on Climate Change from Science Friday.

You may select any segment that interests you on the Science Friday Degrees of Change (a segment devoted to climate change topics). Listen to the segment and answer the following questions:

  1. Summarize the segment you listened to; include the name, the topic, the scientists (if mentioned), and a description of how it relates to climate change. Do not copy the summary provided on the website (I know you know this…but just a reminder…use your own words). A good way to summarize without plagiarizing is to listen to the discussion, take notes, and then write a summary. You can go back to look for specific information, like the scientist’s name, but most of the summary should come from your memory or your notes. Do not try to read the summary and then write your own summary – this is too hard.
  2. What are the principal gases involved in climate change? What are the primary sources of these gases? How does your topic increase or decrease the gases involved in climate change?
  3. What can you reasonably do to decrease your carbon footprint? Review the Carbon Footprint section of UM Sustainable Systems Factsheets, pages 12 – 13.
  4. As the future generation, or speaking for your children, what would you tell Ron DeSantis is the most critical environmental issue facing Florida today? Give an example of one policy change he could implement that would help address this environmental issue. Be specific.

Make sure to include 5 references using MLA or APA format.

A good answer should be 2-3 pages long (double-spaced).

Electricity is one of the most important energy resources consumed. Electricity is also one of the highest in demand.

Energy Sources

Everything people do in their daily lives involves the consumption of resources. One resource in particular is energy. Electricity is one of the most important energy resources consumed. Electricity is also one of the highest in demand. Traditionally, fossil fuels have dominated the U.S. energy mix. Examples of fossil fuels include:

  • Coal
  • Natural gas
  • Oil
 

However, it is well-known that fossil fuels emit carbon into the environment. This is harmful to the environment because fossil fuels are contributing to global warming. Fortunately, alternative energy sources are becoming more efficient and popular. Examples of alternative energy sources include:

  • Solar
  • Wind
  • Hydro
  • Geothermal
 

Analyze energy sources, to write a scientific paper that addresses:

  • The 2 primary sources of electricity generation are coal and nuclear power plants. Which of these sources is better for human sustainability?

Using the M.U.S.E. link, review the background information and gather your data.

Research is a systematic study that aims to increase knowledge and understanding about a particular variable studied, for example, determining how effective a drug is based on a therapeutic result. On the other hand, quality improvement involves a systematic collection of data and statistics to improve healthcare outcomes (Al-Surimi, 2018). An example of such redesigning systems in the healthcare setting to determine the effect on healthcare outcomes. Research primarily follows a specific chronological order with a fixed hypothesis and assesses the study’s effectiveness through data analysis. Conversely, quality improvement has a flexible hypothesis, which variates as the survey continues (Al-Surimi, 2018). Quality improvement is mainly aimed at providing safe, effective, timely, and patient-centered care. In contrast, the main aim of a research undertaking is to determine the usefulness and utility of a medication given to patients (Al-Surimi, 2018).

Workplace Example

Qualitative research can be used to examine healthcare professionals’ change in behavior concerning difficulties and barriers they experience while delivering care to patients, whose findings are usually in words to be interpreted. On the other hand, quantitative research collects statistical information concerning a healthcare determinant, enabling empirical investigation (Rutberg & Bouikidis, 2018). In the surgical unit, we conducted qualitative and quantitative research on healthcare professionals to determine why physicians frequently got infections. From the data collected, it was discovered that it was due to lack of enough physicians’ gloves and washing stations. When this data was represented on a graph, a bigger percentage of participants complained of a lack of a washing station. This information was used for quality improvement in the facility, and more cleaning stations were put in place to ensure physicians practice regular handwashing hygiene

The purpose of performing research is to find new knowledge about the effect of a medicine, treatment, or procedure. Health care providers and health care organizations collect data for several different reasons. Data collection is performed to meet the requirements of mandatory reporting by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Data are also collected for quality improvement, and data are collected for research purposes. If data are collected for research purposes, different procedures are required. For health care, data collection for quality can be done without acquiring approval or consent, which is required for research studies.

Quality Improvement (QI) is data-driven and usually done to improve the quality of care provided to patients. QI may benefit a process, system, and possibly the patient. QI, as defined by the Department of Health and Human Services (2011), consists of “systematic and continuous actions that lead to measurable improvement in health services and the health status of targeted patient groups” (p. 1). When health care providers and nurses carry out a QI project, it may not be the implementation of something new, but an improvement upon something already in place. QI takes a team to produce results. A QI project does not subject the participant to any risk, and the participant may not even be aware of being involved in a QI project. The QI project usually occurs at the facility where the problem was found. Monthly data are collected regarding patient safety at most facilities. Facilities include health care institutions such as hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, long-term facilities, clinics, and doctors’ offices (Helbig 2018).

In dialysis, we have the IDT that uses qualitative and quantitative research to review methods of modality, patient and family knowledge of hemodialysis.

The CPG provided the CDC has been a mainstay to patient education in my practice.

Addressing healthcare problems that have a large impact on individuals in our society, have been at the forefront of quality improvement initiatives. Identifying these areas of concern can be helpful for DNP prepared nurses to stimulate and create effective change that may be needed. One of the areas of concern identified is Opioid. Opioid use disorder is a national problem in the United States of America.  According to the US Burden of Disease Collaborators (2018), opioid use disorder (OUD) is the number 7 leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the US. As a mental health practitioner, OUD and other substance abuse are common problems I see in my patient population. This national burden is directly related to my daily practice because most of the patient population seen in the clinic are also being prescribed opioids for chronic pain for various reason from other providers.  In rural Tennessee where I practice, the small town is well known for drug abuse and drug overdose.  I have learned from my previous collaborator, to be very careful when prescribing antianxiety medications or any type of control substance, since at the time I was the new provider in the area.

OUD impacts nurses as it requires a multifaceted approach involving various interdisciplinary members where a nurse may take a leadership position in the patient’s care (Eckart et al., 2020). As a profession, nursing science advances knowledge to recognize, prevent, and treat OUD (Eckart et al., 2020). Health care organizations serve as the umbrella to support multidisciplinary teams in treating OUD. Last but not least, quality of care could be affected by prescriber practices, social stigma, and lack of resources that correlate to OUD (Eckart et al., 2020).

A couple of crucial national stakeholders come to mind with OUD: the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). The CDC plays a significant role in providing OUD guidance for the public, including clinicians and patients. The DEA plays another vital role in monitoring and regulating prescribers plus controlled substance prescriptions. Micro level stakeholders impacted by the resolution of this issue include patients, as well as community members who have day to day interactions with the patients.

At this time, there is a clinical practice guideline (CPG) issued by the CDC.  Clinicians in primary care have found that managing chronic pain can be a daunting task; therefore, the CDC has issued a CPG on prescribing treatment for chronic pain (Dowell, Haegerich, & Chou, 2016). Using a systematic review to assess benefits, risks, values, preferences, and costs, the CDC has issued 12 recommendations to clinicians when prescribing opioids (Dowell et al., 2016). The recommendations advise that clinicians avoid prescribing opioids if possible, take a stepwise dose approach if prescribing opioids is unavoidable, establish goals of treatment with patients before prescribing, and closely monitor patients for response to treatment; the recommendations also include avoiding concurrent use of other opioids or benzodiazepines, in addition to providing medication assisted treatment for OUD (Dowell et a., 2016).

The CPG provided the CDC has been a mainstay to patient education in my practice. My collaborating physician and I rarely issue opioid prescriptions. We often encounter frustrated patients when they are refused opioid prescriptions after having been given opioids from the emergent care setting; this is a time-consuming issue faced frequently in may primary care clinics (Tong et al., 2019). To improve patient safety and satisfaction, counseling is important to de-escalate patient frustrations and help them perceive the potential harms to opioid use.
