Congratulations! You’ve been promoted to be a new training manager for your department. Your first task is to train your team to use some new software. In your psychology class, you learned about two different approaches to learning 1.) Operant conditioning; 2.) Observational learning.
In your discussion post, share which approach you would use to train your team in using the new software. Be sure to use EITHER operant conditioning OR observational learning. In general (just a few sentences), describe what your training would be like based on the approach. Why do you think that approach will successfully teach your team to use the new software?

Practicum Onsite Visits
Summarize the key activities of your visits to your Practicum site (as appropriate), including with whom you met, what you did, and what you gained from the experience.
This week, I assisted in a Quality and Safety Council meeting, and a Practice Council meeting. The Quality Safety Council meeting started with moments of excellence which included announcements from the participants. The new B12 council member was also introduced (Mrs. Sawyer, Sade). Topics such as hospital acquired pressure ulcers (HAPU) report and the presentation of a new vacutainer for blood draws were discussed. In the area of Professional Growth Development, the quality data discussed how to disseminate the message to others consistently and focus on getting all nurses to truly understand the data presentations. As far as the Culture agenda, how to address the issue of CLABSIs (Central lined-associated Blood Stream infection) and CAUTIs (Catheter-associated Urinary Tract Infections) were discussed. Multiple people attended the meeting, but the key members who presented were Tim T., Jocelyn R., Jeff C., Jesse R., Lisa O., and Sade S., all nurses.
The Practice Council meeting also started with moments of excellence. The agenda items were as followed: In the News (Mercy Magnet Mentor needed; 4 years commitment), Collaborative Practice which included infection prevention, education, pharmacy, laboratory, and technology report in which my preceptor discussed the upcoming new G-Tube assessment in Meditech, texting through responder 5 to PCD phones with canned and free text in the works; some part of Maternal Child Health have received a Health Stream 3-module introduction to the process of logging into the upcoming Epic system. Presenters were: April S., Lisa A., Susan H., Andrea L., Kim D., and Maria H.

Deadline: Sunday at noon, response post to at least “ONE” other learners due by Monday the next week at noon.
