Dr. Madeleine Leininger
BRIEF OVERVIEW
According to Creasia&Friberg, 2011, Nursing theories are composed of Concepts and propositions that characterize the central occurrences of interest to nursing discipline to include: person, environment, health /illness, and nursing. Dr. Madeline Leininger has drawn from a background in cultural and social anthropology and applied it to her model which is now known as Leininger’s Cultural Care Theory. The theory was initiated from clinical experiences recognizing that culture and a holistic concept was the missing link in nursing knowledge and practice (Leininger, 1988). This presentation will take a look at how person, environment, health/illness, and nursing are greatly affected by different cultures and subcultures. Nurses are responsible for taking care of not only our own communities, but an ever-growing world around us. The ultimate goal of this theory is to provide culturally appropriate nursing care (Leininger, 1988).
BACKGROUND OF THEORIST MODEL
Dr. MadeleineLeiningeris called “a living legend”. She was born in Sutton, Nebraska in July 13, 1925. As a Nurse, anthropologist, teacher, mentor and visionary she became the founder of the Transcultural Nursing Movement. She was the one who proclaimed that “the world was fast becoming a global community and nurses needed to be able to recognize it and deliver culturally competent care”. (Leininger , 1988)
Dr. Leininger earned her nursing diploma from St.Anthony's Hospital School of Nursing, Denver, Colorado. In 1950, she received a B.S. from Benedictine College in in Atchison, Kansas and obtained her M.S. in mental health from Catholic University of America in Washington D.C. in 1954. Years later, in 1965, she was awarded a PhD in cultural and social…...

...sensitive data with their business partners up and down the supply chain. This is a huge corporate mindset change since what was previously considered proprietary and secret must now be shared. Furthermore, in the digital environment, it can be difficult to control the limits of this information sharing. Information that a firm willingly gives to its largest customer may wind up being shared with its closest competitor. Other barriers include difficulties in integrating private industrial networks into existing ERP (enterprise resource planning) systems and EDI (electronic data interchange) networks. Most ERP systems were not designed initially to work with extranets or even to be particularly Internet compliant; they were based on business models that use entirely internal business processes. Furthermore, changes in corporate culture and attitudes organization-wide and among all employees are essential so that a shifting of allegiances occurs from the firm to the wider trans-organizational enterprise. This is difficult to achieve. Employees must recognize that the firm’s fate is intertwined with that of their suppliers and distributors. Suppliers in turn, must change how they manage and allocate resources because their own production is closely aligned with the demands of the private industrial network partners. A loss of independence among all participants in the supply and distribution chains occurs and this requires huge behavioral changes in individual organizations......

...must smile with her.” Madeleine Vionnet-  (1876-1975). French Designer Madeleine Vionnet was known for introducing the bias cut in the 1920’s. This cut follows the natural form of the female shape. When she says “ The dress must not hang on the body but follow its lines” I think she meant that the dress should adopt the female body shape and imitate the natural movement of the body. She also liberated the body from stays and corsets; her garments would clung to the shape of the body. When she says “When a woman smiles the dress must smile with her” she illustrates how dresses must take on the personality of the person wearing them. Vionnet was influenced by the modern dancer Isadora Duncan, whose and barefoot moves and flowing dress inspired her to do away with the corset. She also said  “A woman’s muscles are the best corset one could imagine” ; she loved everything that delineated women curves. Vionnet’s bias cut, was a technique in which fabric is cut on a diagonal, across the grain. Saying “I never came across any fabric that disobeyed me,” she worked mostly with silk and chiffon making them alive, falling in fluid lines that followed the body’s every contour. Her dresses celebrated the female form. I Bibliography "Fashionable Quote of the Week by Madeleine Vionnet." Over dressed for life. N.p., n.d.

Dr. Pepper

...America (History of Dr Pepper), Dr Pepper is all of those past slogans, and more. It's the greatest soft drink on the planet, and it will stand the test of time. Dr Pepper has come a long way from Morrison's Old Corner Drug Store in Waco, Texas back in 1885. According to the Dr Pepper Museum website, under “History of Dr Pepper”, the inventor was Charles Alderton, who was a young pharmacist working in the drug store. In his spare time, he had a hobby of mixing carbonated beverages for customers. Apparently, he loved the smell of the drug store so much, with all the fruit flavored smells in the air, that he wanted to create a carbonated drink that captured the scent of the store. After a few tests, Alderton finally became satisfied with his flavor, and offered a sample to his boss, Wade Morrison, who loved it. Alderton soon became confident enough to offer his new drink to his customers, who, in return, offered positive feedback. Dr Pepper officially became a soft drink on December 1, 1885 (History of Dr Pepper). While Morrison is credited as given Dr Pepper the name, the meaning behind the name remains a mystery with a lot of theories. One theory is that Morrison named the drink after his friend, Dr. Charles T. Pepper. There is a legend that Morrison was in love with Pepper's daughter, and that Morrison named the beverage after Pepper for giving him permission to marry his daughter. The theory is doubtful, though, due to the fact that at the time Dr Pepper was......

...Final Project Antonio Williams Dr. Dollyne Wayman-Brody EDU 530 06/17/2010 Strayer University If I had to choose a leadership style then, I have to say that I believe that I represent the Human Resource style of leadership. In an effective leadership situation, the leader is a catalyst and servant whose leadership style is support, advocating, and empowerment, while in an ineffective leadership situation; the leader is a pushover, whose leadership is abdication and fraud. Human Resource Leaders believe in people and communicate that belief; they are visible and accessible; they empower, increase participation, support, share information, and move decision making down into the organization. Scratch the surface of an excellent school and you are likely to find an excellent principal. Peer into a failing school and you will find weak leadership. That, at least, is the conventional wisdom. Leaders are thought to be essential for high-quality education. But is this indeed true and if so, exactly how does leadership work? Amidst the seeming certainty that leadership matters, there is much that we do not yet understand about effective educational leadership. However, the knowledge base about leadership is constantly growing. This knowledge can be used with confidence to guide leadership practice, policy, and research. It also can provide a good starting point for dialogue with diverse audience about the future of educational leadership. Like other complex human......

...report, and more than a tinge of cruelty in the way the story was reported. They couldn't hide their glee at exposing a respectable middle aged lady as a vicious internet troll to all her friends, family and neighbours. It was pitchforking at its very worst. However, any gleeful thoughts Gamble and McCanns may have of outing people on a regular basis must now be treated with the seriousness it deserves, as Brenda's tragic death has proved. The punishment Brenda received (based on no evidence) was way beyond anything a Court could have dished out. It seemed more like payback, than a genuine news story, Her face, and home, was broadcast every hour, on the hour, as she was publically labelled as a 'Hater', continually hounding the family of Madeleine McCann. She wasn't. She was angry at this blatant miscarriage of justice as many are. Nothing she did deserved the kind of punishment she received. The death of a child is always emotive, especially when those charged to uphold the law appear to be covering it up. Sky News acted as Judge, Jury and Executioner. Brenda is dead because of what she was accused of, not because of what she did. She probably said a lot more in that Sky interview than 'I thought I was entitled to', but will we ever know? They wanted to label her as evil, and they did. Brenda, bless her, knowingly or unknowingly, may well set off a chain of events that will bring about the final downfall of the McCanns and their minions. Jim Gamble and the McCanns wanted to......

Leiningers Theory

...Leininger’s Theory of Cultural Care Diversity and Universality (Debbies Portion) Major concepts essential to this theory. * Leiningers theory is culturally specific and congruent care “focused on culture care preservation, accommodations, or repatterning according to the patients’ needs” (Allison, 2006, p. 61). * The theory recognizes generic or folk care as well as professional nursing care. as a new kind of nursing in the 1950’s that focused on human beings in a multicultural world. * “Culture Diversity, and Cultural Universality provided the overriding framework for the study of transcultural nursing” (Alligood 2006 p 412). Differentiates how each theory influences patient care * The theory differentiates itself by addressing “a deficiency in health care- the absence of cultural knowledge” (Alligood, 2006 p.411). * The theory of Culture Care Diversity and Universality helps nurses become culturally sensitive and aware of individual cultures, thus being able to create a successful culturally congruent care plan that will identify with the patient. * Culture and Care are the two most important component of nursing and this theory interfaces “professional and generic care into creative and meaningful nursing that can unlock the essential ingredients for quality nursing care” (Allison, 2006, p. 413) * It recognizes that there are variations in patient care and planning and it prevents stereotyping or assumption that all patients......

This Course is an intermediate level course designed for officials involved in Ministries of Finance, Ministries of Justice and Public Administration, policy makers, decision makers, auditors participating or would be participating in internal or external audits of public financial management, lawyers, university professors, lecturers and students, especially in the field of finance, law, economics, public and business administration. ------------------------------------------------- Background The Course is meant to make students acquainted with the main issues of the new approaches to and techniques of the governance of public finance. The traditional model of public finance was based on established structures of government, and the sole responsibility for an efficient management of public finances was political. This means any mismanagement of public finances (e. g. a significant accumulation of budget deficit and government debt) was potentially sanctioned in the next parliamentary elections by the electorate which may have entrusted a new government with the management of public finances. This system proved, however, obviously inadequate under the conditions of the crisis of the world economy from 2007 on. It turned out that the normal political cycle doesn’t allow for fast reactions by incumbent governments to the deterioration of public finances, and independent (or at least......
