As part of a leadership team for a healthcare organization dealing with a high incidence of fall incidents, you have been tasked with addressing this issue promptly (building upon previous assignments). Following a series of meetings and discussions about the possible cause of this safety concern, you have been asked to complete two important deliverable that will be used for supporting efforts to reduce fall-related incidence in your organization.
Your first deliverable will be to help the leadership and quality team better understand the root causes of the growing incidence of falls in your organization. Using Microsoft Word, PowerPoint or XMind, you will construct a fishbone diagram, otherwise known as a cause-and-effect or Ishikawa diagram (see resources for information). As shown in the diagram below, use the common categories (causes) such as equipment, process, and people to guide your construction. To elicit details in the fishbone diagram, you can use brainstorming techniques.
After completing the fishbone diagram, provide a written narrative that expounds on key information in the diagram. Also, explain the brainstorming process that you used to gather detail information about the possible root causes of falls in your facility.
Length: 2-3 pages not including title and reference pages. Include the diagram in the 2- to 3-page specified length.
References: Include a minimum of 2 credible resources, one of which must be scholarly and peer-reviewed.
All case analyses must include the six sections in the table below, although some instructors may require additional elements. Use headings to identify these sections in the case analyses.
Required Components of Case Analyses
Briefly identify the major elements (i.e., who, where, what) of the case.
Summarize internal and external issues that created or sustain the problem (i.e., why). Depending on the system level, these may include: cultural, economic/resource, political/legal, organizational, social, and ethical issues, interpersonal relationships, and intrapsychic and biological conditions. Use and cite professional sources (and include APA-style references).
Give a specific and concisely written formulation of the problem to guide analysis and problem-solving. Not a question but a statement of the problem. Usually no more than two sentences.
Identify three or more possible solutions to the problem. These solutions should be plausible, distinct and non-contingent (i.e., not interdependent). Briefly note advantages and disadvantages of each possible solution for addressing the problem.
Justify your preferred strategy, explaining why you selected that particular one, how it best resolves the problem, and how you will determine its effectiveness. Be sure your recommended strategy can be plausibly supported by resources available in the case context.
Ways of Knowing
Self-reflectively identify the source for your thinking about this case. For example, did you base it on previous experience, intuition, specific theories, personal values, authority, empirical research, previous discussion of similar problems, or something else?

Overview: In the first milestone for the final project, you established the three starting points that you are going to investigate for your final paper. You
identified the cause of the event, when the event started and finished, and the major figures involved in the event. For this milestone, you will be asked to
research the surrounding context of the event. In other words, you must understand the trends surrounding the event and the relationship between the trends
and the event. Trends can be the policies that the event has gone against, the political turmoil caused by the event, or the cultural issues.
Note: In the earlier tasks in this module, you discovered the historical trends and supported them with scholarly sources. In this milestone, you will now combine
that information and explain how these surrounding trends impact and relate to your historical event.
Remember, the sources you are using should come only from the provided list to ensure that they are scholarly and essential to the time period.
Prompt: Explain the significance of the major trends of the time period and explain how those trends relate to or impact your chosen historical event. In other
words, why were the trends that defined this historical age important, and what is the relationship between those trends and the event?
Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:
I. Establish the Context: In this section, you will write multiple paragraphs using information from the course regarding the time period in which your
historical event took place. You will use this section to set the stage for your argument. This section of your essay must include the following:
A. Illustrate the larger historical setting.
1. Identify major trends relevant to your chosen historical event.
2. Explain the significance of the major trends of the time period, connecting the trends to your chosen historical event. In other words,
why were the trends that defined this historical age important, and what is the relationship between those trends and the event?
Guidelines for Submission: Your paper must be submitted as a 2- to 3-page Microsoft Word document with double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font,
