The Final Integration Project is based on the following scenario: All references will be provided upon assignment of the project.
You are hired at a Catholic healthcare facility which was originally founded by the Felician Sisters. Your workplace is appreciative of your efforts to complete your degree at Felician University. The administration has received word that you have taken a course about the integration of moral and spiritual considerations in healthcare. You have been appointed head of a committee which will write several articles. These articles will be published in a new handbook for the facility.
For the Final Integration Project, you will write an Introduction to the handbook, and one article regarding Catholic-Christian teachings focused on an area of healthcare discussed in our course. These are both about one page each (200-250 words). You will submit ONE document with TWO sections. Label the sections as shown below.
In your introduction to the handbook, explain how your healthcare institution strives to provide holistic care to everyone it serves. Give an understanding of this care by briefly referencing one or two of the assigned readings from the course. This is NOT a research paper, where you would find and rely on outside material. Find materials from our course to reference, and explain in your own words how and why care at your institution is concerned with the care of the whole person. The introduction will be 200-250 words (no more than 300 words including one or two references).
II. Article regarding the moral considerations of a medical decision
In your article regarding the morality of a medical decision, you will provide a clear and concise guide to help inform patients and/or their families regarding the Catholic-Christian perspective on a healthcare issue (Death with Dignity Act). Choose a morally challenging medical decision discussed in our course. Define the issue, and explain the basics of Catholic-Christian teaching regarding the issue. Again, this is not a research paper. One or two references or citations will be from the coursework. Otherwise, use your own words. This brief topical article will be 200-250 words (no more than 300 words including one or two references).
The Final Integration Project is worth 50 points. The grading rubric will be essentially the same as listed in the syllabus for a Scholarly Writing Assignment, except that for the Final Integration Project, sections I and II are each worth 25 points, for a total of 50 points.
