Overview: In this clinical practice experience, you will identify a healthcare leader at your place of employment or in your area. Ideally, this healthcare leader will be involved in making unit- or organizational-level decisions, such as the addition of evidence-based initiatives and/or analyzing data to determine compliance or quality-improvement concerns. You must find a healthcare leader at an organization or facility that does not require an affiliation agreement with SNHU. Obtain permission to observe and interact with the healthcare leader for four hours. During this period, you will collaborate with the healthcare leader, analyzing the leader’s role and organization. You will also conduct an interview with the healthcare leader to determine the following:

x What are the healthcare leader’s day-to-day responsibilities within the organization? x What education and practice experiences have prepared the leader for their current role? x What type of organizational structure is present within the organization? For example, is it a hierarchical structure or a decentralized, shared governance

structure? x What types of communication patterns or issues are present and affected by the current organizational structure? x How does the leader address conflict related to divergent opinions? Discuss differences in professional background and experience, race and ethnicity,

and culture. x What type of leadership style does the healthcare leader have, and is that style impacted by the current organizational structure and function? x Develop two additional questions related to the healthcare leader’s role and experiences within the organization. Discussion: Shadow Healthcare Leader

After your experience, search the literature for evidence-based recommendations or interventions to address any concerns with the organizational structure and/or communication patterns noted by the healthcare leader. Alternatively, search the literature to identify best practices associated with healthcare leadership, communication, or organizational structure and function that may be pertinent to the healthcare leader’s role. At the end of the four-hour period, ensure the healthcare leader has signed the attestation, confirming the number of hours you spent together. Develop an executive summary describing the current organizational structure and communication patterns, along with your evidence-based recommendations for improvement. This summary will then be presented to the healthcare leader. You will also submit a two- to three-paragraph journal assignment reflecting on everything that you have learned during this clinical practice experience. Reflect on your experiences with presenting the executive summary to the healthcare leader, noting their responses to your evidence-based suggestions. To summarize: Follow this step-by-step guide for this assignment:

x Attend the clinical practice experience/interview and have the Clinical Hour Attestation form signed. x Complete your research. x Write the executive summary.

x Present your executive summary to the healthcare leader. x Submit the deliverables.

Please note: Students should not be providing direct care. Consider adding your completed executive summary, Clinical Hour Attestation form, and reflection to your ePortfolio.
