Find a two-page peer reviewed article on conflict. This should be a research article dealing with some aspect of health service conflict. In other words, this article should be from a scholarly journal . Articles should be at least 5 pages long. Article reviews will be 2 pages in length. All reviews must be carefully written, and strictly adhere to the APA writing style, and typed (double-spaced) in 12 pitch, Times New Roman font, with 1-1.5″ margins. The article must be attached to the review in the discussion area. Most importantly, any review that includes more than 3 lines of direct quotation (of ANY length — i.e., whether 3 separate quotes equaling three lines, or one long one; a line here a line there) will receive a 15 point deduction from its earned grade. Each article review will also need to respond to each of the following:
Citation Each review must include the APA citation for the article (or chapter) that you are discussing.
SummaryTell the reader exactly what the article is about. What was the reason for the article? If a research work, how did the author go about conducting the study? Who were the subjects? What kinds of analysis were conducted? What were the author’s findings and conclusions?
Professional Critique. From the perspective of a professional in the field of health care management, how do you respond to the article? For example, is it clearly written? Would its intended audience understand the content (remember that the average consumer may NOT be the intended reader)? How might the work have been improved? Did the author support his conclusions with appropriate evidence? Were any biases apparent in the author’s work and/or conclusions? What were the management implications. Do not hedge when preparing your professional critique. Take a stand.
Personal Response. Even if you select an article that, from your professional point of view is horrible, it may generate a favorable personal response. Alternatively, you may have similar personal and professional responses to a written work. Tell me about those personal responses. Only in this section may you introduce any subjectivity. Was the article interesting to you? Do you think it covered an important topic? How might it have been improved to make for better reading? better research? Did the author tackle a major problem in an appropriate manner? Questions as these are all fair game for your personal response.
3Qs Create three questions that you can ask someone to establish his grasp of the content. Do not provide answers to these questions.
All reviews must be written in professional prose. That means you cannot use contractions, nor can you use the ‘first person’ in your writing. Spelling, grammar, and punctuation must be consistent with professional standards. Lastly, remember that only professional sources are eligible for use as an article review. Publications such as ‘Sports Illustrated,’ ‘Seventeen,’ ‘Newsweek,’ ‘Life’ or any other popular magazine (that you can buy at the super market) are NOT acceptable. Newspapers and the INTERNET are also inappropriate sources for this assignment.
If you have questions about the acceptability of your article, show it to me – at least one week before your review – and I will gladly determine whether it is appropriate for the assignment. Please note: Students who submit reviews based on unacceptable sources (e.g., NET, newspaper, or magazines) will (1) receive an automatic zero for the assignment and (2) NOT have any opportunity to resubmit the assignment. Students whose reviews do not include all necessary content areas will be graded proportional to the presence/quality of mandatory areas that are covered in their review.
