Please help with this assignment. This assignment should be 3 paragraphs in length. Please strictly follow the attached rubric.
Now, you will zero in on some aspect of that issue that affects vulnerable and disenfranchised groups differently from the way it affects dominant cultural groups. Continuing to add sources as necessary, you will analyze and synthesize the findings from the scholarly literature, asking how these groups have historically been, and currently are, impacted by the policies, decisions, and actions of others; what ethical principles have driven these policies, decisions, and actions; and what strategies and solutions the different parties have come up with. You will examine the issue from multiple perspectives, including your own cultural background and experiences and those of impacted individuals and groups.
You will use the lens of at least two ethical theories to evaluate the potential equity of the different strategies and solutions. You will recommend areas for further study that might result in more equitable treatment of those vulnerable and disenfranchised groups. Your recommendation must be supported by well-reasoned evidence from scholarly research. Remember: you are not to propose solutions at this point, just lay out the possibilities!
The Diversity/Ethics scaffold paper will be 2,000-2,500 words, excluding title page and references.
There are many ways to write up your research findings at this stage. Below is a list of aspects of the research that you must include in some way:
*Identify the groups of people around the world who may be adversely affected by the issue, and also the dominant groups who are not
*Situate your own cultural perspective relative to the issue and these groups
*Use Hofstede’s cultural dimensions theory in some way as you analyze the diverse cultural perspectives
*Address issues such as ingroup favoritism, intergroup bias, etc. (see the list of topics in The Global Workplace, Part 1 in Module 3)
*Describe the ethical issues involved in addressing the problem, being sure to draw on at least two ethical theories (see the list of topics in The Global Workplace, Part 2 in Module 3)
*Analyze the decision making process and action plans that have been tried
*Examine evidence for social responsibility in these processes and plans
*Identify the policies and practices presented in the research findings that might lead to equitable solutions (and which seem unlikely to do so).
*Then, take a step back! Don’t pick a solution yet. Let this portion of your paper season, and wait for feedback from your instructor and your peers. You will be expected to present your proposed solution in detail in the last segment of your final paper.
Sound complicated? Remember, you’re building on the solid foundation you developed in the Literature Review, and applying knowledge of diversity issues and ethical theories to your problem. If you’re having difficulty understanding what we mean by ‘ethical underpinnings” you will find it helpful to review the Ethics Resources section of the Assignment Support Resources document.
Be sure you use the literature review as well as the working research paper attached. This will be the same project over three weeks with additions and corrections needed, so if you offer to help this week expect to see this same assignment two more times.

In completing research I also found a signifcance with IV drug use and mucor infections.
Cerebral mucormycosis is extremely rare but when it isdiagnosed, it is often found in IV drug users (Fungal Infections, 2018). In a study published in Neurology, mucromycosis was associated with IV drug uses, most common heroin and cocaine (Lin, 2013). Although the infection started in anotherlocation, mucor had a predilection for the basal ganglia in 89% of those who were studied (Lin, 2013).
You mentioned people can get infected with mucormycosis from breathing spores in the air, through an open wound in the skin. I also learned that mucormycosis is considered rare but is actually the second most common fungal infection (Clinical Microbiology and Infection, 2013). Some symptoms that can help diagnose mucor are: diplopia, necrotic naso‐sinus eschars, pleuritic pain, necrotic cutaneous lesions. These may be present in other fungal infections, but aid in the initial diagnosis. Early idenitification and treatment are the keys to recovery.
“Mucormycosis has a worse outcome than other invasive fungal infections such as candidiasis or aspergillosis. The higher degree of difficulty to cure this devastating infection is related to differences in host–fungus interactions, and pathogenetic mechanisms, as well as greater difficulties in early diagnosis when the ‘window’ of successful treatment is higher, and wider inadequacies of therapeutic options”(Clinical Microbiology and Infectio, 2013) .
I agree with checking glucose levels as part of the medical treatment for persons with pulmonary mucor. Apart from surgical and pharmaceutical interventions, treating underlying predisposing factors is important (Iqbal et al., 2017). Adding a sliding scale to treat high glucose levels would be optimal for the patient. The incidence of diabetes mellitus is rising, and it is causing an increase in mortality rates with pulmonary mucor (Iqbal et al., 2017).
Write a paper (2,000-2,500 words) in which you apply the concepts of epidemiology and nursing research to a communicable disease. Refer to “Communicable Disease Chain,” “Chain of Infection,” and the CDC website for assistance completing this assignment.
Communicable Disease Selection
Choose one communicable disease from the following list:
- Hepatitis B
Epidemiology Paper Requirements
Address the following:
- Describe the communicable disease (causes, symptoms, mode of transmission, complications, treatment) and the demographic of interest (mortality, morbidity, incidence, and prevalence). Is this a reportable disease? If so, provide details about reporting time, whom to report to, etc.
- Describe the determinants of health and explain how those factors contribute to the development of this disease.
- Discuss the epidemiologic triangle as it relates to the communicable disease you have selected. Include the host factors, agent factors (presence or absence), and environmental factors. (The textbook describes each element of the epidemiologic triangle). Are there any special considerations or notifications for the community, schools, or general population?
- Explain the role of the community health nurse (case finding, reporting, data collecting, data analysis, and follow-up).
- Identify at least one national agency or organization that addresses the communicable disease chosen and describe how the organization(s) contributes to resolving or reducing the impact of disease.
- Discuss a global implication of the disease. How is this addressed in other countries or cultures? Is this disease endemic to a particular area? Provide an example.
A minimum of three peer-reviewed or professional references is required.

Do you believe you have the traits to be an effective leader? Perhaps you are already in a supervisory role, but as has been discussed previously, appointment does not guarantee leadership skills.
How can you evaluate your own leadership skills and behaviors? You can start by analyzing your performance in specific areas of leadership. In this Discussion, you will complete Gallupâ€™s StrengthsFinder assessment. This assessment will identify your personal strengths, which have been shown to improve motivation, engagement, and academic self-conference. Through this assessment, you will discover your top five themesâ€”which you can reflect upon and use to leverage your talents for optimal success and examine how the results relate to your leadership traits.
- Reflect on the results of your StrengthsFinder Assessment, and consider how the results relate to your leadership traits.
Post a brief description of your results from the StrengthsFinder assessment. Then, briefly describe two core values, two strengths, and two characteristics that you would like to strengthen based on the results of your StrengthsFinder assessment. Be specific.
Assignment (1- to 2-page case study analysis-not including title page, references)
