Health Services Organization Management SWOT Analysis

 
SWOT Activity – 10-Slide PowerPoint
Due Week 6 and worth 50 points
As indicated in the Research Activity 1 (Opioid Crisis),  out of 200 applicants, you were selected to work as the manager in the  research department for a special task force with the Centers for  Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Review the CDC website at   https://www.cdc.gov/opioids/.   Your first assignment with the special task force is to focus on Opioid  Overdose. The CDC reports that from 1999 to 2015, more than 183,000  people died in the U.S. from overdose related to prescription opioids.
You can also read more about the opioid crisis by going to the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services’ website at: https://www.hhs.gov/opioids/about-the-epidemic/index.html .  You can also visit the National Institute on Drug Abuse’s website at: https://www.drugabuse.gov/drugs-abuse/opioids/opioid-overdose-crisis.
The CDC has been researching the impact of opioid overdose to protect  the public’s health and prevent opioid overdose deaths using  surveillance and research. Your focus is two primary areas: 1) opioid  prescribing guidelines for physicians, and 2) ways hospitals can create  prescription drug monitoring as a part of their Quality Management  Department (see https://www.cdc.gov/drugoverdose/index.html).
The CDC sent you to a local hospital, and based on your Research Activity 1 (Opioid Crisis),  you were asked to provide the hospital leaders with a 10-slide  PowerPoint to explain your research findings and to include a SWOT  analysis. Your SWOT analysis should focus on the issues of the opioid  crisis, in relationship to our U.S. healthcare system.  What have we  done well?  Where are the gaps?   Your research skills used to create a  SWOT analysis is based on Chapter 3 in the textbook and from the Research Activity 1 (Opioid Crisis).  SWOT stands for strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats; this  analysis tool can be used to identify forces that can potentially help  or harm the healthcare organization. Review the SWOT examples in Figures  1 and 2; refer to Chapter 5 in your textbook, listen to the Week 1  Lecture in Blackboard, and review the video on SWOT: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_6AVRGLXGA.
