What is the most common sexually transmitted infection and what age population presents the highest prevalence? How is this infection detected, treated, and monitored?

Common STI

There are many sexually transmitted infections (STIs) that are commonly spread from person to person. Age, education level, financial circumstances, and other risk factors can all make an impact on the transmission of these infections. Chlamydia is one of the most commonly reported STI and one that is also the most common bacterial cause of STIs (Marrazzo, 2018). It is so common due to the fact that most of the time it is asymptomatic and continues to spread from person to person.

Chlamydia is consistently highest among young women and men that are aged 14 to 24 years of age (Marrazzo, 2018). In many studies performed there is always a higher prevalence in women than men with the highest being in African American women (Marrazoo, 2018).

Detected, Treated, & Monitored

This STI tends to me asymptomatic and is left untreated. Symptoms in women include abnormal vaginal discharge and burning with urination (CDC, 2014). Men experience discharge from their penis, during with urination, and pain and swelling in one or both of their testicles (CDC, 2014). If it is spread to the rectum there will be pain, discharge, and bleeding from the rectum. If a person is sexually active with more than one partner and does not always use protection they should have testing done yearly. Testing for chlamydia can be done through a urine test or with a swab inside of the penis or vagina and sent to the lab for testing (CDC, 2014). The two most common type of antibiotics are tetracyclines and macrocodes. Doxycycline and azithromycin are the two first-line agents used for treatment of chlamydia (Marrazzo, 2018). An individual that is treated for chlamydia should be retested in three months and again in one year to ensure that they have not been reinfected (Marazzo, 2018). Many people often get reinfected if their partner is not treated. It is important to retest as it can cause many complications in women including sterility as it damages the fallopian tubes. It is important for providers to offer this testing, especially in annual exams.

What is the most common sexually transmitted infection and what age population presents the highest prevalence? How is this infection detected, treated, and monitored?

STDs are a huge problem in the U.S. People are having unprotected sex, leading to the passing back and forth of sexually transmitted diseases. According to the Centers for Disease Control, HPV is the most common STD and is found most commonly in the ages of 25-29 years of age (Centers for Disease Control, 2019). There is no cure for HPV however, 90% of the cases clear on their own over the span of 2 years (Centers for Disease Control, 2019). HPV causes most cases of cervical cancer and strains 16 and 18 are the most dangerous. Some types of HPV can cause genital warts or no symptoms at all. There is a HPV vaccine that can be given to help men and women from contracting HPV but there is no cure after the infection has been acquired (Boskey, 2018). HPV can be detected in a woman via pap smear. There is no current recommended test for men but HPV can sometimes present as genital warts (Centers for Disease Control, 2019). According to the U.S Preventive Services Task Force, monitoring for HPV and cervical cancer should start at age 30 and end at age 65. For women who have normal paps, they can get screened every three to five years (US Preventive Services Task Force, 2016). For women who are HPV positive, their screening should be more frequent depending on what their doctor recommends.

Championing Organizational Change discussion

Write a 2-3 page memo that makes a “pitch” to a change champion who can endorse and actively support a change effort you have recommended.

Introduction

To be an effective leader and change agent, you need to understand and apply principles related to the politics of change. For this assessment, you will construct a stakeholder map related to a needed change in your workplace or an organization you are familiar with and write a memorandum to make a “pitch” to a change champion who can endorse the change effort and actively support it. The focus here is on how to change versus what to change.

Preparation

Use the Capella University Library to find one resource on the politics of organizational change.

Scenario

After joining the change task force at your organization, you were asked to write an internal report recommending a potential change within the organization. Your report was distributed in several different circles within the organization, and people there were energized by your ideas. They want to make your recommended changes, and your supervisor’s boss has taken a personal interest in seeing that your ideas get implemented. To help make it happen, he has asked that you write him a memo that explains how your recommended changes will impact other roles within the organization and how to manage potential points of resistance to change.

Your Role

Imagine that you work in any organization you choose in any position you like. For the sake of simplicity, you may choose to imagine your present position at a company where you already work. You may use the same organization you chose for Assessment 2. Whatever your other responsibilities, you are now also tasked with providing change leadership within the organization.

Requirements

In a memo to a senior manager who can serve as a change champion for your selected organization, include the following:

  • Identify the change and why it is needed for the selected organization. You may use the same change you focused on in Assessment 2, or you may choose a different change.
  • Develop a stakeholder map, including those directly or indirectly affected by the change.
  • Explain each stakeholder’s position on the change. Be sure to include what they can gain or what they can lose.
  • Articulate recommendations for structural or cultural changes as part of the change plan.
  • Assess alternative approaches to managing resistances. Consider how to deal with toxic players.

Your memo should be written coherently to support a central idea, with correct grammar, usage, and mechanics as expected of a business professional.

Deliverable Format

When your supervisor’s boss requested this memo, he asked that it be easy for upper management to absorb when he presents it to them in some upcoming meetings. Keep it to 2–3 pages. He has also asked that you include one strong academic reference to give your recommendations research-based context and support, but keep it to just one, as there is no time for reading a lot of references in these meetings. Since your memo will be shared with upper management and other internal stakeholders, you want this document to be well organized and readable. Include your stakeholder map at the end of the memo.

  • References: Support your recommendations with one resource from the Capella University Library. You must use proper APA style to list your reference.
  • Length: 2–3 pages, in addition to the stakeholder map and reference list.
  • Written communication: Demonstrate graduate-level writing skills through accurate communication of thoughts that convey the overall goals of the memo and do not detract from the message.
  • Formatting: Use a professional memo format.
  • Font and font size: Times New Roman, 12 point.

Evaluation

By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the following course competencies through corresponding scoring guide criteria:

  • Competency 1: Assess the complex and dynamic nature of organizational change.
    • Identify the change and why it is needed for the selected organization.
  • Competency 2: Analyze ways in which leaders and managers can effectively initiate, shape, and support organizational change.
    • Develop a stakeholder map, including those directly or indirectly affected by the change.
    • Assess alternative approaches to managing resistances.

Critical analysis on Hills like Elephants

Ernest Hemingway’s short story “Hills Like White Elephants” is a story about a conversation between two people.

Before you begin reading and analyzing this story, I would make one request of you: do not look for any information online. No Wikipedia, no SparkNotes, no Cliff Notes. I know that sometimes it can be easier or more helpful to do a bit of research to help you discern more from the literature, but this is a piece that I really, really want to know your individual thoughts on.

With that in mind, please just read the story and let me know what you think. As you’re reading, consider the following:

  • What is the relationship between these two characters?
  • What the actual heck are they even talking about?
  • What does this conversation actually accomplish, if anything?

Must be 300 words for this assignment.

BBA3210 CSU Unit 7 Employer Responsibility Discussion

Little Big Corporation hired Stuart as a delivery driver. Before Stuart was hired, the personnel director of Big Little Corporation not only interviewed Stuart and asked him about his driving record and the status of his driver’s license, but the personnel director also obtained an official driving record for Stuart and talked with Stuart’s former employer specifically about Stuart’s driving record. There was no indication from the interview with Stuart, from his driving record, or from Stuart’s previous employer that Stuart was an unsafe driver.

When Stuart was hired by Little Big Corporation, he was thoroughly trained in the operation of the delivery truck that he would be driving and provided an employee safety manual which he was required to (and did) read.

For seven years, Stuart worked as a delivery driver for Little Big Corporation without any accidents or problems. In Stuart’s eighth year as a delivery driver for Little Big Corporation, while making a delivery, he was distracted by something in the cab of his delivery truck, ran a stop sign and hit the car that was being driven by Peggy. Peggy suffered a broken leg and her car was badly damaged.

Peggy sued Stuart and Little Big Corporation for her injuries and damage, and she was awarded damages against Stuart and Little Big Corporation. Little Big Corporation was considered to be fully responsible for these damages under the doctrine of respondeat superior.

Is that fair to Little Big Corporation? What is accomplished by making an employer liable for the actions of their employees if the employer has done everything within reason to make sure that its employees are qualified and trained to do their jobs safely?
