Effective managers, leaders, and teachers are also effective communicators. Written communication is an important element of the total communication process. The Graduate School recognizes and expects exemplary writing to be the norm for course work. To this end, all papers, individual and group, must demonstrate graduate level writing and comply with the format requirements of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th Edition. Careful attention should be given to spelling, punctuation, source citations, references, and the presentation of tables and figures. It is expected that all course work will be presented on time and error free. The paper is to have an abstract and Table of Contents. While there is no maximum number of references, your paper is to have no less than six references.
This paper presents an opportunity for you to research an area in greater depth than we will cover in class. Additional purposes of this assignment are to expose you to legal writings found in the health care literature; to better your understanding of legal concepts; to relate the legal concepts in the articles you have chosen to the material studied in class; and to relate the concepts in the articles and class to your own experiences in the real world. The research paper can be an in depth review of legal cases or legal topics.
While the paper should focus on one topic of your choosing, it must relate to health care legal issues in health care administration. It should be as long as you need to comfortably cover the topic and should not be less than (12) pages. The maximum as noted in the syllabus is (15) pages (does not include references). In choosing a topic, you should guard against the paper being too broad that it lacks focus or too narrow that you cannot find sufficient references. The final paper should be uploaded in the assignment folder and your Turnitin account by the due date. Please note the Writing Rubric for insights as to how the paper will be evaluated.
