Assignment: Practicum Experience
As your practicum proceeds, consider the topics addressed this week. Conduct research to further your understanding of how issues related to health information systems and other resources, such as financials, staffing, and materials, could influence the implementation of your proposed change.
In addition, you reflect on the effectiveness of your practicum experiences for fostering your professional development. What challenges are you encountering, or would you anticipate at this point? If necessary, what can be done to improve the situation?
