Regulatory Environment and Requirements
Select a risk management issue within a specific health care setting or organization. For your initial post to this discussion, construct a plan for regulatory compliance and address principles of high reliability organizations (Youngberg, 2011, p. 346–347). Begin your discussion by defining your selected issue and setting. Then, explain your plan and cite resources and personal experience as appropriate. The issue you select for this discussion will be the focus of the executive summary portion of this unit’s assignment, in which you must create an executive summary that describes your organization’s compliance with the regulatory requirement to promptly identify POAs and proactively assess and manage risk.
Initial posts should be based upon peer-reviewed, evidence-based literature. In your post, include at least one APA-formatted in-text citation and accompanying, congruent APA-formatted reference. Your source can be a course textbook, assigned reading, or other scholarly source.

Respond to the posts of other learners according to the Faculty Expectations Response Guidelines. If possible, respond to one learner who has a perspective, background, or goals that are similar to yours, and to one learner whose perspective, background, or goals are different. Peer responses should be substantive and must include one peer-reviewed source that aligns with the discussion thread. You may feel free to add an additional source that is new or provides a completely different perspective. “I agree” and “Thanks for sharing your insights” are examples of responses that do not contribute content for enhanced learning and are not acceptable. The goal is quality, substantive feedback that demonstrates higher order critical thinking and evaluation of peers’ initial posts.
