Continue to use the scenario to assist you with this assignment. There are two parts to this assignment: Part 1: Using your instructor’s and peers’ feedback and suggestions from Week 4, complete your final draft of the Key Assignment, Report to the Future of Healing Hands Task Force. Add the following analysis to complete your paper from Week 4 and then submit the entire paper including the analysis for this assignment: For the final paper reference list, be sure to include a minimum of 3 reference sources besides the textbook identifying where you found your data on hospital statistics and add this to your references for the other sections of your final paper from the previous week’s assignments.  Document your references using APA format. Being asked to be part of the Task Force was recognition of your abilities and value to Healing Hands Hospital.  When you started to work on the Task Force, you were not an expert in all of the aspects of the healthcare industry on which you were asked to report. Your manager, Ms. Woods, the Chief Operating Officer, recognizes this and that you had not previously had the opportunity to present to the Chief Executive Officer and other members of the executive team.   She tells you that this is a good opportunity to develop skills as a professional and expand your expertise level in the healthcare field.  She is curious about how you feel about the opportunity and what skills you feel you already had and those that you developed in this process.  She also would like to know what skills you feel you still need to develop to continue to advance in your healthcare management career.  Write a 2-3 paragraph memo to Ms. Woods that answers her questions and reflect on your professional development through the work that you did for the Task Force (as a part of this course) and how you will continue to maintain your acquired skills and knowledge base.

Subject: Reflection on Professional Development and Skills Acquired through the Task Force

Dear Ms. Woods,

I would like to take this opportunity to reflect on my professional development and the skills I have acquired through my involvement in the Task Force. I am grateful for the recognition and trust placed in me as a member of the Task Force, and I am motivated to continue expanding my expertise in the healthcare field.

When I first embarked on this assignment, I was aware that there were areas within the healthcare industry that I was not yet an expert in. However, I welcomed the challenge and embraced the opportunity to learn and grow. Through working on the Task Force, I have gained valuable insights into various aspects of the healthcare industry, including hospital statistics, patient care, and healthcare management.

One of the skills I already possessed and was able to apply during this process was effective research and data analysis. As a healthcare manager, I understand the importance of using reliable and accurate data to inform decision-making. This skill enabled me to gather relevant information and present it in a clear and concise manner in the Key Assignment report. Additionally, my ability to critically analyze the data allowed me to identify key trends and make informed recommendations to the Task Force.

Throughout this process, I also developed my skills in communication and collaboration. As a member of the Task Force, I had the opportunity to work closely with interdisciplinary experts from various departments within Healing Hands Hospital. This required effective communication, active listening, and the ability to collaborate with others to achieve a common goal. I believe that fostering strong teamwork and open communication were crucial factors in the success of the Task Force.

Moving forward, I recognize that there are still skills I need to further develop in order to continue advancing in my healthcare management career. One area I would like to focus on is leadership. The Task Force experience allowed me to contribute ideas and insights, but I believe there is room for improvement in terms of taking a more proactive leadership role. I aim to enhance my ability to inspire and motivate others, as well as to effectively lead interdisciplinary teams.

In terms of maintaining my acquired skills and knowledge base, I plan to engage in continuous professional development. This includes staying updated on the latest advancements and trends in the healthcare industry through attending conferences, participating in relevant workshops, and seeking opportunities for further education. Additionally, I will seek mentorship and advice from more experienced healthcare leaders who can provide insights and guidance on career progression.

In conclusion, my involvement in the Task Force has been a valuable learning experience that has allowed me to develop and apply skills in research, data analysis, communication, and collaboration. I am committed to further enhancing my leadership abilities and maintaining a solid foundation of knowledge in the healthcare field. I am grateful for the opportunity you have given me and look forward to continuing my professional growth at Healing Hands Hospital.

Thank you for your support and guidance.
