Briefing Memo You are the chief of staff of your public organization. Every morning you provide a briefing memo on the top 3 issues that you think the director needs to know today. It is a single-page memo, single-spaced. Select an organization, such as a school district, or an executive or local agency. The only limitation is that it be a public or not-for-profit organization. SWOT Analysis – you describe strengths, weaknesses and opportunities, and threats associated with the events framing that day. In the briefing memo provide a title for each topic, a short paragraph summary of each topic and one media report citation and link on the topic, and one scholarly article with a link related to the topic as background for your boss. If the issue is internal such as a personnel problem the media example may be a comparable situation. For example, a sexual harassment issue was brought to the boss’ attention. You may want to use a comparable media report. Instructions APA citation style should be followed for the citations and links. However, this one-page document can be single-spaced. See the attached example.
model itself does not provide a means to choose which aspect to prioritise, which therefore results in individuals to choose what they want to prioritise based on their own personal beliefs (Ghaemi, 2009). When discussing the Biopsychosocial model within its uses in medicine is it important to note although there was an initial good response, it is not widely practiced. There has been a limited amount of application. Some critique the model to be too complex. There has been a main focus on biomedical factors and often psychological and social factors and often completely ignored. (Kusnato, Agustian & Hilmanto, 2018). in the world of medicine there is a limited amount of information and training provided on biopsychosocial. Medics are not taught to deal with biopsychosocial factors that is associated with chronic disease. When looking at figures in the United States non-communicable diseases make up for 88% of total deaths (Jaini & Lee, 2015). Which include chronic diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, obesity etc. This furthermore makes medics unprepared for treating these illnesses that are influence by multiple factors and as the number of deaths increase by chronic diseases it is important to help identify the multiple ways it can be managed (Jaini & Lee, 2015). (Adler, 2009) addresses a point suggesting that although some country such as the US and Germany have clinics specific to pain management via conative methods this is not the vision Engel was going for. Engel and the thoughts of the author believe a physical need to be able to carry a working knowledge of human behaviour. A medical school survey looked at the use of the biopsychosocial model in undergraduate studies. 41% had expressed that biopsychosocial model was a part of their curriculum which is less than half. Topics included “psychosocial factors 80–93%, cardiovascular 83%, and doctor–patient communication 98%. Some problems that were expressed was the lack of resources to teach the subject, the uncertainty of students and staff members and lastly the lack of continuity (Adler, 2009). If there is a lack of content taught on biopsychosocial models in medical school how do we expect it to process into medicine, the start starts from the content being taught in schools. In conclusion, there is a number of limitations that need to be addressed in order to see the model process. The authors all have evaluated the biopsychosocial model well. Issues like the lack of method, lack of practice, the idea of it being too general all are valid points, without having a strong basis and a way to attain scientific data that is measureable it would be difficult to incorporate it in medicine. However, there is an ability to take the biopsychosocial model and progress it so it fits into everyday medicine. Looking at the amount of research on the benefits of the biopsychosocial model on chronic pain and the evidence the treatment provides, it is essential to try and merge it into medicine. More research needs to be conducted on creating a method that is testable and efficient this may furthermore open the minds of those who are hesitant on accepting the model.
