: Discuss the social complexity (ies) of alcohol as a strong risk factor for disease transmission such as HIV/AIDS in the context of global health.

****500 Word Discussion*****According to a recent World Health Organization report excessive drinking causes more than four percent of deaths worldwide more than AIDS tuberculosis or violence. Due to increasing incomes in heavily populated countries in Africa and Asia including India and South Africa binge drinking has become a problem in many developed countries as more money is being spent on alcoholic beverages.Moreover policies which control alcohol are weak and remain a low priority for most governments despite drinking’s heavy toll on society causing road accidents violence disease child neglect and job absenteeism.WHOs Global Status Report on Alcohol and Health states that approximately 2.5 million people die each year from alcohol related causes. It further reports that the harmful use of alcohol is especially fatal for younger age groups and is the world’s leading risk factor for death among males aged 15-59. Worldwide statistics accounts for about 11 percent of drinkers who have weekly heavy episodic drinking occasions with men outnumbering women by four to one. Men consistently engage in hazardous drinking at much higher levels than women in all regions investigated.In the WHO’s first report on alcohol since 2004 alcohol has been a causal factor in 60 types of diseases and injuries. Increasing consumptions has been linked to cirrhosis of the liver epilepsy poisonings road traffic accidents violence and several types of cancer including cancers of the colorectum breast larynx and liver.Despite repeated health warnings from doctors and public health professionals the global health burden of alcohol consumption continues to rise and it shows there are no signs of it slowing. The economic and health implications posed by alcohol are often overlooked in favor of its social benefits and it is precisely this fact that makes alcohol such a dangerous commodity.Question: Discuss the social complexity (ies) of alcohol as a strong risk factor for disease transmission such as HIV/AIDS in the context of global health.

Analyze if the assumption elements identified are based on (a) your previous experiences, (b) others’ perspectives, (c) facts, or (d) a combination of these.

n the unit introduction, you read about the influence that your history and previous experiences with tests may likely have on your perception of them at the start of this course. Remember to set aside these perceptions as you enter the course and learn about tests and their measurement. Remain cognizant of them as you proceed so they do not prevent you from learning about tests and, perhaps, change your mind, either way, about them. Additionally, in your readings from the Psychological Testing and Assessment text, you were introduced to seven basic assumptions about psychological assessment. Identify the one assumption that was the most difficult for you to accept based on your current understanding or previous experiences with testing.

In your post:

Identify the assumption by number and title that presented the most questions for you. (Include the number and title in your subject line of the discussion thread when you post it.) Also, include an indicator about how concerning the assumption is to you at this time (that is, 0 = No concern at all, just the most problematic relative to all other assumptions I am presented; 1 = Somewhat concerned with this assumption; 2 = Very concerned with this assumption; 3 = Significantly concerned and in disagreement with this assumption).
Identify specific parts or elements of the assumption that were most concerning to you.
Analyze if the assumption elements identified are based on (a) your previous experiences, (b) others’ perspectives, (c) facts, or (d) a combination of these.
Discuss why these elements were most concerning to you in terms of those previous experiences, perspectives, or facts. Essentially, share an example of those experiences or knowledge that resulted in your current concern.
Identify which future chapter in the Psychological Testing and Assessment text may be important and relevant for you, based on the assumption you identified (Hint: Look through the Table of Contents or Index in your text for help).

Determine the total variance between the planned and actual budgets for Surgical Volume. Is the variance favorable or unfavorable?

Budgeting
is an important activity within every healthcare organization. The particular
challenges encountered, however, can vary depending on the type of
organization. A state or federally funded organization, for example, will
likely have a budget that is allocated to it, and it needs to follow specific
guidelines on how the money can be used. A for-profit organization, by
contrast, will typically have more influence and flexibility in setting up
its budget and making choices on matters such as how much to spend on
marketing, patient care, or incentives for employees.

In
addition to preparing budgets, as a healthcare administrator, you must also
be able to evaluate whether or not you have achieved your budget using
variance analysis. This is important because variance analysis measures the
differences between the budget and actual results, and provides
administrators with a starting point for correcting financial performance.
For this Assignment, you conduct a variance analysis for a healthcare
organization.

To
prepare for this Assignment, review the Week 7 Assignment document provided
to you by the Instructor. Examine the budgeted and actual revenues and
expenses for a hospital. Reflect on concepts of budgeting and variance. Refer
to Chapter 10 and Chapter 11 of Financial Management
of Health Care Organizations: An Introduction to Fundamental Tools, Concepts
and Applications in this weeks Learning

Identify a global issue currently in the news that might benefit from a macro-level intervention that includes a psychologist.

In this week’s Discussion, you addressed macro interventions of global significance such as child soldiers, HIV/AIDS, and education in war-torn countries. In this Application, you review additional issues and macro-level interventions, identify a global issue that might benefit from the presence of a psychologist, and consider strategies that might be used to intervene in such situations. Psychologists intervene by implementing strategies called change strategies. The three change strategies detailed in your text are top-down, bottom-up, and middle-out. Top-down strategies are those that top-level leaders implement by directing action to those who report to them. Bottom-up strategies work from the grassroots. In bottom-up strategies, laypeople work together to create change. Middle-out strategies are implemented by mid-level leaders to influence top-level leaders as well as their public constituencies.

To prepare for this assignment:

Review Chapter 9 in your course text, Toward a Global Psychology: Theory, Research, Intervention, and Pedagogy. Pay particular attention to the section that addresses change strategies.

Identify a global issue currently in the news that might benefit from a macro-level intervention that includes a psychologist.

Think about one bottom-up change strategy a psychologist might use to intervene and address the issue, one middle-out strategy, and one top-down strategy.

For each strategy, consider which specific change strategy might be the most effective in addressing the issue you selected.

The assignment (1–2 pages):

Describe the issue you selected and the macro-level intervention that might address the issue. Select an issue and intervention that would benefit from the involvement of a psychologist.

Describe the bottom-up change strategy a psychologist might use and explain how he or she might use it.

Describe a middle-out change strategy a psychologist might use and explain how he or she might use it.

Describe a top-down change strategy a psychologist might use and explain how he or she might use it.

Explain which change strategy or combination of strategies you believe would be the most effective in addressing the issue and why.
