Directions:Compete the following chart. An example has been provided for you in the first row. Include in-text citations in the table as well as an APA reference listing below. A minimum of two to three scholarly references should be included
Assessment Tool
Include the full name, description of the tool, and what the tool measures (i.e., opioids, process, withdrawal) Tool Description
Type of tool (paper, pen, structured, unstructured), how it is administered, how many questions, and general scoring information Appropriateness of Use
When/where the tool is appropriate or inappropriate to use, where the tool will most likely be used (i.e., online, in-patient, outpatient, clinic), and what specific population the tool is used for (i.e., adolescents, elderly, pregnant.)
CAGE Questionnaire
A brief 4 item, widely used questionnaire designed to assess alcohol use. CAGE is acronym for:
C=Cut down
A=Annoyed
G=Guilty
E=Eye opener

Paper and pen or orally administered Takes less than 1 minute, Yes or No response
Typically administered by health care professional or clinician and is client’s self- report, scored by tester
CAGE Questionnaire-4 questions
1. Have you ever felt you should Cut down on your drinking?

2. Have people Annoyed you by criticizing your drinking?

3. Have you ever felt bad or Guilty about your drinking?

4. Have you ever had a drink first thing in the morning to steady your nerves or to get rid of a hangover (Eye opener)?
Scoring: Item responses on the CAGE are scored as 0 or 1. A higher score is an indication of alcohol problems. A total score of 2 or greater is considered to be clinically ToollTsignificant Ewing, 1984; NIAAA, 2002) Often used in medical settings
Several adaptations of tool available for use including computerized and self- administered versions.
Free, in public domain and translated into many languages

Not used to assess for drugs but adapted CAGE-AID questionnaire can be used for drug use.
Best use is in adult populations

Criticism of the CAGE- not gender-sensitive. Women who are problem drinkers less likely to screen positive than men.
It identifies alcohol-dependent persons, but may not identify binge drinkers.
CAGE asks about “lifetime” experience rather than current drinking. A person who no longer drinks may screen positive unless the clinician directs the questions to focus on a more current time frame (ADAI, 2016).

• Application: System Security and Ease of Use
For ethical, legal, and business reasons, the security of health care data must be a top priority in health care organizations. HIPAA, for example, requires that health care organizations safeguard patient data, and there are serious consequences for breaches of privacy. Yet organizations have many types of sensitive clinical or administrative information they need to protect. To make their systems secure, health care organizations put in place policies as well as technical safeguards such as encryption and passwords. There can be a tradeoff, however, between system security and ease of use by health care providers.
Prepare for this Application Assignment as follows:
• Select a type of health care organization, such as an outpatient clinic, nursing home, or hospital, and a specific department or function in this setting, such as a nursing unit, radiology department, or admissions, that would make use of sensitive health data. Bring to mind specific ways in which these data might be improperly accessed, lost, stolen, and so on.
• Review this week’s Learning Resources, and conduct online research, as needed, to clarify for yourself the ramifications for individuals and organizations of security breaches in this department, and the solutions that have been devised to protect these data. In what ways might these security measures interfere with the staff’s ease of use of the system? Consider how best to balance these competing interests of data security and convenience for staff.
Then write a 2- to 3-page paper that addresses the following:
• Describe key challenges for your selected health care department in ensuring that its sensitive data are secure. Illustrate with specific examples, and address not only technological issues but also human factors involved in ensuring its system security.
• What are some implications of security breaches of its health care data? Who might be impacted and how?
• Summarize security measures that might be taken as well as their potential impact on the staff’s ease of use of the information system.
• Explain what you believe is the appropriate balance between data security and ease of use.

Describe the disorder you selected from the Women’s Health Initiative study.

Describe the disorder you selected from the Women’s Health Initiative study.

For over 20 years, the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) study has conducted research trials to examine factors that impact risks and development of conditions that impact women such as heart disease, breast and colorectal cancer, and osteoporotic fractures in postmenopausal women. Health care providers use results from these trials to develop guidelines for delivering care to patients. In your role in clinical settings, you must be familiar with these guidelines, and you must be aware that through clinical practice, guidelines frequently evolve and change. Often, what is considered a best practice today might not be a best practice in the future. For this Assignment, you compare guidelines outlined in the WHI study to current best practices for assessing and managing conditions.
To prepare:
-Review the Women’s Health Initiative article in this week’s Learning Resources. Select one disorder presented in this study
Department of Health and Human Services, National Institutes of Health, & National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. (n.d.). Women’s Health Initiative: WHI background and overview. Retrieved March 20, 2013, from https://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/whi/background.htm
The disorder I choose I choose is: Breast Cancer Risk (April 2006)
-Locate and select a research article that addresses current best practices for assessing and managing the disorder you selected. Be sure that the research article you select is from a reputable source.
Consider the similarities and differences between the best practices presented in the WHI study and the article you selected ( I will attach the article). Think about the potential impact of differences in best practices on women’s health.
Consider whether the best practices in the article you selected should be used in clinical practice.
To complete:
Write a 2 -page paper that addresses the following:
Describe the disorder you selected from the Women’s Health Initiative study.
Explain the current best practices for assessing and managing this disorder as suggested in the research article you selected.
Compare the best practices presented in the WHI study to the current best practices presented in the article. Explain how the differences in best practices might impact women’s health.
Explain whether you think the current best practices in the article you selected should be used in clinical practice. Support your position with evidence-based research.
