identify whether one program appears to have advantages over the other, andexplain why.

The
paper’s purpose is to provide practical experience in effectively using
health care research resources through library databases and Internet search
engines and to enable you to write more effectively about public health
administration topics. The length of the paper should be from six to ten
double-spaced pages, not including the title page, references, or any charts or
tables. The paper must meet all APA standards and your references must
include at least five peer-reviewed journal articles. Grading
criteria will include organization, the depth of fact-finding, the depth of
analysis, sophistication of thinking, strength and clarity of writing, paper
formatting, and the degree to which the paper followed the published
guidelines. See the Standardized Writing Rubric in the Course Content for
specific criteria.

Please select one of the following topics for your research
paper:

A. Public health partnerships are an important tool for
stretching limited resources. Using the literature and information found in
this course, explain in detail the different types of partnerships (strategic
orientation, categories, and characteristics) and use that information to
conduct an analysis of two different public health partnerships. In your
analysis, you should describe the purposes, structure, goals of each of the
organizations and the two partnerships and how the organizations quantify or
measure their success. You should conclude by comparing and contrasting the two
partnerships and describe any similarities and differences between them,
identify whether one program appears to have advantages over the other, and
explain why.

B. Interview a seniorleader or manager in a public health agency about
a program that they work in. You should describe the leader/manager’s
background and describe his or her public health program in detail (include its
purpose, role in public health, leadership, funding sources and amounts, and
the measures that the program uses to measure its success). You should then describe
and analyze three significant leadership challenges that the leader/manager
faces in their work and describe how/if they have been able to resolve them.
You must then use the literature to provide context and to conduct a detailed
analysis of at least one of the challenges. Your analysis should result in a
minimum of three potential solutions for each of the challenges. Finally,
please remember to be courteous to the person and send a thank you note after
the interview. Note that interviews may be in person or on the telephone.

C. Using an accepted change management framework (one example
might be “Leading Change” by John Kotter), analyze a public health
organization that has undergone or attempted to undergo transformational
change. Describe what the organization did (or did not do), what was successful
and what was not successful, and describe leader behaviors and actions that had
an impact on the effort. Describe the degree to which the organization
followed or did not follow the change management framework that you cite.
Ground your analysis with references from the literature.
