What factors might complicate polypharmacy among older adults? Discuss one potential solution or polypharmacy prevention tool as related to the factors your provided.
Consider your own experiences: hypothetically, if asked by a health professional about your medications, would you consider occasional acetaminophen (Tylenol), ibuprofen (Motrin), or a daily vitamin in providing an answer? Why or why not?
Lastly, reflect on why you chose option A (polypharmacy) as opposed to option B (addiction).
– OR –

(B) Addiction

What are some common addictions among older adults and why is addiction a problem among older adults?
Addiction is often untreated among older adults; friends, family, and even health professionals may approach an older adult’s addiction from a perspective of, “They’re old—they have earned it,” or “Let them enjoy (cigarettes, alcohol, etc.).” Why might this be? What is problematic about this perspective?
What is one way to combat or treat addiction among older adults?
Lastly, reflect on why you chose option B (addiction) as opposed to option A (polypharmacy).

What are some advantages and disadvantages of recommending this CAM for use by older adults?

1) Choose a complementary or alternative medicine (CAM). (Keep in mind that several popular CAM services and techniques are covered in your text; you may
choose one of these, or another not covered in your text. Also, you may choose a CAM that could be applicable to your client/profile, but are not required to do
so.) Perform a brief search for articles, resources, websites, etc. on your chosen CAM. Collect appropriate overview information on your topic, and keep track of
your resources as appropriate.
2) Write a short essay overview of your chosen CAM, including the below topics:
● A brief history of this CAM in the United States, including how popular it is, among whom, and where and when this CAM originated.
● How is this CAM regarded within the modern (traditional) medical community?
● What are some best practices for this CAM (ideally informed by a national organization or standards board)?
● What are some advantages and disadvantages of recommending this CAM for use by older adults?

Identify and explain one of the factors that led to the wrongful conviction of Ron Williamson.

Describe, in general, the gist of your topic. In this section you should identify and explain one of the factors that led to the wrongful conviction of Ron Williamson. What is the issue? Why is it a problem? Your ability to succinctly and clearly explain your topic is worth 25% of the paper.

Summarize and explain past research that you have found on the topic you have identified. This will include discussing what the research has shown on your issue, how it relates to wrongful convictions, and proposals for how to improve your issue. For this paper you will need three additional sources such as books and peer-reviewed or law rev iewjournal articles. Each source will be worth 1% of your final paper grade.

First, outline the business and operations strategy, mission statement, core competencies, product and process design, and quality considerations in the manufacturing process for the product/service you have selected. Then you will proceed to analyze and select a production location or locations, forecast your production requirements, plan the capacity of your production facility, schedule considerations, and establish the necessary supply chain partnerships. Additionally, you will need to discuss what your inventory management policies will be, and your plans for implementing ERP and Lean management in your production facility.
You will need to include the following sections specifically in your Project Report:
1. Mission Statement that addresses minimally, what business will the company is in, who the customers are, and how will the company’s basic beliefs define the business.
2. Strategy: How do you plan to gain a competitive advantage in the market place, or in other words, “what are your core competencies?” Try to address the question, whether your company will compete on, cost, quality, time (speed), or flexibility? Or on a combination of two or more of these dimensions.
3. Results of environmental scanning (government regulations, trends, opportunities, threats, etc.) and the factors influencing your choice of product, process etc.
4. A detailed description of your product (include complete details of the component parts, and the process of manufacture). You may also want to discuss,
How did you pick your product?
a) Idea development b) Product screening (alternate products considered etc.) c) Preliminary design and testing (pilot, samples, any market tests etc.) d) Final design (components, processes,material, machinery and other resources necessary to manufacture your product- including any outsourcing)
5. How will you ensure consistent quality in your products and processes? How do your company’s standards compare with the industry standards? Any bench marking etc.
6. Forecasting: Decide what to forecast. Evaluate and analyze appropriate data (industry, regional, and national including demand data from a similar company). Select the forecasting method (quantitative, not qualitative) and justify your selection. Generate forecasts (please include as attachments). How will you check accuracy of your forecasts? Will you forecast for seasonality and if so, how? Explain.
7. Operations planning: Determine the necessary “production capacity” of your facility based on your demand forecasts? What productivity measurements will you use?
8. Location Consideration: Describe the steps/analysis that you followed to determine the best location for your facility. Discuss, a) Regional-national considerations, proximity to sources of supply, customers, or sources of labor. b) Community considerations (any use of break-even analysis or other technique), and c) Site considerations. Outline your supply chain strategy and discuss how it impacted your facility location decision (from raw material to customer).
9. Manufacturing: Describe how you will manufacture your product (machines, labor, robotics, etc.). What type of manufacturing process layout will you use and why? Keep in mind that you will most likely utilize just-in-time (JIT) to the extent possible. Also recall the process of manufacture you chose, namely, continuous process, flow shop, cellular, job shop, project, or a hybrid (combination of two or more of the former)
10. Develop a diagram (attachment) of the facility layout and justify your layout choice. Show how the product flows through the facility from raw materials to finished product.
Note: Diagrams should reflect space requirements for each function (machine, operator, and WIP, etc.). Discuss briefly, what happens at each station, and show output at each station (pieces per hour or similar measure).
11. How will you utilize “just-in-time” concepts in your facility? Discuss your Inventory management policies and ERP implementation, if any?
