strategy to address a current crisis or challenge that is negatively impacting standards of care,

report, to be presented to the Board of Directors at their upcoming meeting.

healthcare workplace.

O Sample crises and challenges: COVID-19, weather emergency, staffing shortage, layoffs,
financial crisis, merger, or acquisition, etc.

• If you do not have a healthcare workplace example, search for an article about a
relevant crisis or challenge. Be sure to include a link to the article in your references.

O Suggested sources: The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Business Week, The Economist,
Modern Healthcare, The Journal of the American Medical Association, and any other
professional journal or publication.

O You may also find useful material on the following websites: American Hospital
Association (, American College of Healthcare Executives  (, and The 
American Public Health Association (
