Community Description
Fishers Indiana is the community of assessment. Fishers is a town in Hamilton County, it is located approximately 22 miles northeast of Indianapolis, the capital of Indiana. Fishers is approximately 33.59 square miles (United States Census, 2014). The first person to settle in Fishers was William Conner; he started a trading post that connected Fishers to Anderson Indiana. Anderson Indiana was connected to Connersville Indiana by Indian trail. The Indian trail connected to a state road which continued north to Fort Wayne Indiana allowing easy access for the first wave of early settlers (Fishers Indiana, 2014). In 1872 Salathiel Fisher, a property owner in Hamilton County near the railroad, divided his land into town lots. In the late 1800’s it was not unusual for individuals that owned property near railroads to split up their land to start new communities (Fishers Indiana, 2014). The Fishers town lots became known as Fishers Switch, then later as Fishers Station, and eventually The Town of Fishers (Fishers Indiana, 2014). The population of Fishers started slow. In 1960 the population was only 388 but with the relocation of highway 37 and eventually highway 37 connecting to I-69 the population began to increase (Fishers Indiana, 2014).
Fishers has become a large residential and business suburb of Indianapolis with many recreational and cultural events to explore. William Connor’s land is now an interactive historical site known as Connor Prairie (Fishers Indiana, 2014). Conner Prairie offers many interactive experience including going back 200 years to observe how William Connor and his family lived to symphony at the park, performed by the philharmonics. The town of Fishers celebrates an annual Fishers Freedom Festival along with an annual Fishers Renaissance Faire. Further statistical data and assessments continue in the…...

...Task 2 Financial and Leadership Strengths and Weaknesses of the Utah Symphony The financial strengths of the Utah Symphony will now be addressed. One financial strength of the Symphony is the amount of endowments it receives. There are two groups, I and II, which receive endowments. The Utah symphony is in group II and that group gets an average of $8.8 Million per year (Delong & Ager, 2005, p. 4). Another major strength would be the amount of revenue brought in by performances. The 2000-2001 season saw revenue at over $3 million and the projected amount for the next season is over $4 million. The total amount between contribution, endowments, and revenue is over $12 million for the 2000-2001 season and is projected to be over $13 million for the next (Delong & Ager, 2005, p. 15). The financial weaknesses for the Symphony are almost as much as the strengths however. The major weakness in this organization is the salaries and benefits for the musicians. Because they are under contract, the musicians have a set salary with periodic increases. The expense for this is over $10 million (Delong & Ager, 2005, p. 15). This ends up being a huge expense and leaves very little in the way of profit. Another item that adds to the financial weakness is the fact that ticket prices are projected to only increase by 1% while expenses are expected to increase by at least 2.5% (Delong & Ager, 2005). With expenses increasing by a greater rate than income, this will have a detrimental effect...

...Brandy Carich Student ID #000315504 Western Governors University Community and Population Health Task #2 March16, 2014 Community Health Nursing The community health nurse is an imperative part of any community. Community health nurses have several roles in caring for patients, including but not limited to: caregiver, educator, advocate, case manager/ coordinator, counselor, and motivator. This can be a difficult career because of all these different roles that one nurse must take on to provide the best patient care possible. The position can be even more difficult when it comes to dealing with patients and their families when a terminal disease diagnosis is present. Quality of Life Providing a terminally ill patient with the greatest quality of life is one of the most important goals for any nurse. In order to obtain this goal the nurse must build a rapport with the patient and family. Building a good rapport will help establish and maintain a therapeutic relationship between the patient, family and nurse. With a trusting rapport, end life decisions can be more easily made by the patient and their family since there is a medically educated person there to help. As a nurse who has been part of treatment planning for the terminally ill, death is still never an easy thing to deal with. Coping with a terminal illness can be a challenge felt by all involved with the patient. Providing the greatest quality of life up until the......

...Community Health Task 1 Alisha Diehl Western Governors University Community Health Community Description and Data Interpretation Located in South Central Pennsylvania, comprising a total of 910 square miles, York County was founded in 1749. It was formed out of Lancaster County, and became the fifth county established in Pennsylvania, as well as the first county established west of the Susquehanna River. A dispute grew between Pennsylvania and Maryland, as both states claimed a portion of York County. Thus the government hired British surveyors Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon to establish the boundary line between Maryland and Pennsylvania, who formed a demarcation which became known as the Mason-Dixon Line. York County lies just north of this famous Mason-Dixon Line, which later became integral during the Civil War for dividing the Union and Confederate Armies. (York County Historic Timeline, 2012). Population/Economic Assessment The total population of York County is 434,972 as of the 2010 Census, with York being the largest city with 43,550 people. The median age is 40.1 years, with 24.1% of the population being age 65 and older. This is an increase of 6% since the year 2000.

...Community Health Nursing SZT Task 2 Mary Valori-Schmidt Western Governor’s University As an RN, with many years of experience in critical care and trauma, I have had to witness death and dying on a regular basis. After leaving the acute care setting, I functioned as case manager and clinical director for Medicare certified home health. Referrals to Hospice were frequently made for many patients. One’s perceptions regarding death and dying tend to be influenced by one’s cultural and religious (if applicable) beliefs, however, working in healthcare has had a significant impact on my own perceptions. Quality of life is of paramount importance as opposed to length; living with unbearable pain, for example, is not a life at all. One of the most important factors for me, though, is respect for the dying person’s wishes. All too often have I seen well-meaning family members push for any and all extreme, life sustaining measures for their loved ones, while the patient is praying for death. I have had to advocate for the patient many times when there is no further viable treatment and palliative care is all that is left. Honesty, with compassion, tact and sensitivity, I believe, are the keys to imparting information to grieving family members. These experiences have taught me to always educate patients and family members about the importance of advance directives and durable medical proxy appointment while they are well enough to make informed decisions about their wants and......

...Community Health Nursing SZT Task 2 My own perceptions about quality of life have affected my care for patients in end of life situations. I believe more of quality than quantity, several of my family members have died from cancer and secondary effects of treatment of the disease process. Three of my four grandparents have died from terminal cancer and it has taught me that the patient has to be an active part of the decision making for care. One of my grandfather’s chose not to receive any further treatment options other than palliative care after he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s nodular lymphoma with metastasis to his liver and lungs. He chose this option to enjoy the remaining amount of life with his twelve grandchildren and wife. The physicians gave him limited experimental options for treatment with no surgical resolve and he asked the important question for him at the time. Will it prolong my life at the same quality that I have now? The physicians told him that it would probably prolong his life but much of it would be in hospitals and with progressed illness due to the treatments. This led to his choice for palliative care and he lived an additional three years. We enjoyed all of the time we had together and we as a family supported his decision. My other grandfather chose to pursue all of the medical options available to treat his Hodgkin’s lymphoma that was caught in the very early stages. He enjoyed a very long life to the age of ninety-two and survived the......

The Utah Opera Organization and the Utah Symphony are both dealing with surmountable obstacles in regards to the survival of the arts. It would be beneficial in the long run, for the future of the arts to stand as one mighty organization rather than two separate entities. There has always been strength in numbers. Bill Bailey can support the merger using McClellard’s Need Theory. The merger will give the Opera a chance to overcome their current issues with finances and production. The need for achievement which indicates a desire to accomplish something difficult is a prime example of why the merger should be supported. (Kreitner, 2008). The Opera is under pending stress and without the merger the Opera may not survive in the long run. With the merger the Opera will have a better chance of success and achievement. The merger will also increase the affiliations the Opera currently has. Social relationships are fundamental for the success of the merge. These relationships will help ensure the future success of the merge. The merger also brings the opportunity to teach and encourage each member from the other company. The merge will bring new goals to help achieve optimal success. ......
