What interventions could be utilized in order to overcome these challenges of Leukemia??
Reply to Megan G post below.
Leukemia is a blood cancer which happens when there is a loss of normal cellular regulation. Due to this loss of regulation, there are many more white blood cells in the bone marrow.
There is drug therapy that is used for treatment of leukemia. Drug therapy is broken down into three phases: induction, consolidation, and maintenance. Induction involves chemotherapy which is started at time of diagnosis. This therapy can cause bone marrow suppression and decrease immunity. Other side effects of using chemo include alopecia, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, stomatitis, kidney toxicity, liver toxicity, and cardiac toxicity. Consolidation involves either the same drugs used in induction, but with a different dosage, or a different combination all together. the consolidation therapy is meant to cure.
Maintenance therapy involves therapy over months or years after successful induction and consolidation.
Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation is another treatment possible. Stem cell transplantation involves finding a matching donor while the patient is in temporary remission after induction therapy. Before stem cell transplant they have to ultimately kill all bone marrow cells, as they have to get rid of all leukemic cells. This can be deadly as it raises chance for infection and hemorrhage exponentially.
Infection prevention is a major component in the patient with leukemia. Everyone who comes into contact with this patient must have on PPE and have done very thorough hand washing. Following strict asepsis when doing any kind of dressing changes is critical. Assessing for infection must be done very often. Monitor CBC with differential WBC count and absolute neutrophil count. Infections in a patient with leukemia can be a death sentence. Their immunity is already extremely low, so keeping them safe from infection is a number one priority.
This individual assessment task requires students to prepare a Media Relations Plan
The following requirements must be met for your submission to be graded: Download and use the touchstone response template Psychology Assignment Help This individual assessment task requires students to prepare a Media Relations Plan for an Australian not-for-profit organization of their choice. The plan, written for the Board of Directors / CEO of the not-for-profit organization, must convince management that students can design an impactful and effective media relations campaign.
Recommended approach to this task:
Research Australian not-for-profit organizations – I choose Deaf Dog Rescue Australia LTD. as the organization.
Here is the Link: https://www.acnc.gov.au/charity/charities/351fc7a9-3aaf-e811-a95e-000d3ad24c60/profile#pb7b5adc9-5960-ec11-8f8f-000d3ad21721
Through the process of secondary research, identify the organizational goals and business objectives.
Identify the issues (past, present, and future) your organization has faced or might potentially face. For instance, the database Factiva can be used to locate news stories on a particular organization and is a great source of independent information. Likewise, Annual Reports are an excellent source of information on a corporation’s values, operations, and finances. Primary research is not required.
Choose an issue to address.
Imagine you are the Media Relations Manager of your chosen organization. Following the standard template supplied, write a media relations plan based on the findings of your research that identifies and strategically aligns with the organizations’ business plan and strategic communications objectives.
Please note: this plan is intended for an executive audience, so it needs to follow the expected format and clearly and succinctly articulate the issue the organization is addressing, what your key messages are, and what your strategic approach will be.
Media Relations Plan – Template
Your media relations plan should follow the below template.
Overview – introduction to your NFP and the communications ‘issue’
Media relations objectives
Media materials required (earned media only)
Methods of evaluation
N.B. Your media strategy should be divided into phases. In each phase you should consider the date, angle, materials to be disseminated (e.g. pitch to a journalist/media release), spokespeople to be offered, and example media targets.
An example will be provided but you must not replicate this. Each organization will be facing unique issues, and you are expected to come up with a creative and original plan that is tailored to your client’s needs. You must not choose the organization used in the example. Plagiarism detection software will be used.
