Learning Activity #1: Individual

Initial Response(s) due: Day four (4) of the online week (i.e. Thursday on/before 11:59pm).

Follow on Comments (Two comments on the initial answer(s) of two different classmates) due: Day seven(7) of the online week [i.e. Sunday  on/before 11:59pm].

First, make sure that you know the company that has been assigned to you and which you must use for the four major individual assignments (project #1 (due week 2), project#2 (due week 4), project#3 (due week 6) and project#4 (due week 8)).

Cautionary Note: You must use the MergentOnline database in our UMUC library to retrieve the 10K (aka annual report). Taking a shortcut by consulting free online resources could cost you very dearly. Be certain to take note of the specific industry in which your assigned company operates. 

The companies are listed below/herein for your convenience and they are:

NeoPhotonics Corporation (NSM:NPTN)

Inphi Corporation (NYS:IPHI)

Tilray, Inc. (NSM: TLRY)

Acacia Communications, Inc. (NSM: ACIA)

Read your assigned company’s latest annual report [aka 10K] and direct particular attention to the sections titled “Part I Item 1: Business”, “Part I Item 1A: Risk Factors”, and “PART II Item 7: Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations”. You may also visit the company’s web site for additional information discussed in the Annual Report.

Second determine the explicitly stated company mission and vision statements. Do the explicitly stated mission and/or vision statements meet the qualities of “good”/effective mission and vision statements according to the discussions/descriptions in the week’s required/assigned readings (especially the course text readings)? If they are deemed ineffective, then refine and restate them in your own words while ensuring that they meet the qualities of “good”/effective mission and vision statements.

If there are no explicitly stated company mission and/or vision statements, based on your knowledge of the qualities of “good”/effective mission/vision statements, then frame/suggest “new” mission and vision statements for the company. Clearly explain why your new mission and vision statements is effective; offer supporting rationale for your explanation and be sure to cite/reference your statements using proper APA formatting.

Learning Activity #2: Individual

6501 Discussion 2.5

While arthritis impacts nearly 50 million adults in the United States, it is not a disease that is limited to adulthood. Consider the case of Ashley Russell. At the age of 14 months, Ashley was diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. As a baby, her parents noticed that her knee was always swollen and that she often wanted to be carried instead of walking on her own (Cyr, 2012). After seeking medical care, Ashley’s underlying disorder was discovered. Arthritis in children is not uncommon. According to the CDC (2011), an estimated 294,000 children under age 18 have some form of arthritis or rheumatic condition. Due to the prevalence of the disorder in both children and adults, you must understand the pathophysiology and symptoms of arthritis in order to properly diagnose and prescribe treatment.

To Prepare

· Review Chapter 37 in the Huether and McCance text and Chapter 24 in the McPhee and Hammer text. Identify the pathophysiology of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Consider the similarities and differences of the disorders.

· Select two of the following patient factors: genetics, gender, ethnicity, age, or behavior. Reflect on how the factors you selected might impact the pathophysiology of the disorders, as well as the diagnosis of and treatment for the disorders.

Post a description of the pathophysiology of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, including the similarities and differences between the disorders. Then explain how the factors you selected might impact the pathophysiology of the disorders, as well as the diagnosis of treatment for the disorders.

MN576 Discussion Board Peer Response: Primary Care And Disease Affecting Women.

Will need minimum of 150 words for each response, APA Style, double spaced, times new roman, font 12, and and Include: (1 reference for each response within years 2015-2018) with intext citations.

Discuss a primary care-focused visit devoted to wellness and or disease affecting women and health-enhancing strategies that you would include in the visit.

Peer 1 Response

 

One primary care-focused visit devoted to wellness is the annual wellness visit (AWV). Components of this visit should include updating immunizations and suggesting needed immunizations, blood pressure checks to screen for hypertension, obesity counseling if needed, and any counseling for tobacco and alcohol use. Also important is doing a functional status review, screening for fall risk and cognitive abilities for seniors (Adler, 2017). If the patient were a senior with a chronic problem it would be good to do problem-focused physical exam and explore any patient concerns, if any. The Medicare Annual Wellness Visit is still an underutilized benefit for seniors, even though it can offer many benefits to increase a person’s preventive care. According to (Harvard Men’s Health Watch, 2017), this visit does not focus on a physical exam, but is instead a conversation with your health care provider about important health issues. This visit provides time for the patient to plan with their health care provider a healthy future. Other health-enhancing strategies focused on in this visit are a vision test, to detect if the patient needs glasses, a stronger prescription, or have signs of an eye disease. A balance test will be done to help gauge the risk for falls, as well as a hearing evaluation to see if the patient would benefit from a formal hearing test.

Another part of the AWV is developing a personalized plan to address ways the patient can stay active and maintain their current health. One primary care assessment that should be done at every visit is a depression screening. This doesn’t have to be a long questionnaire, the Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-2) is a good screening tool. It consists of just 2 questions from the PHQ-9. If the patient screens positive with the PHQ-2, the full PHQ-9 can be completed. According (Fuchs, Haradhvala, & Uebelacker, 2015), the PHQ-2 has demonstrated strong validity and high sensitivity for detecting major depression in primary care.

Peer 2 Response

Women’s health care is a detailed visit that is focused on many different aspects of care. For example, women need education on special topics at all ages of life. One of the major concerns for aging women is osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a disease of the bones that occurs when there is bone loss, or the body makes too little bone, or both loss and decreased production (NOF, 2018). This conditon causes bones to become extremely fragile, which increases the risk of fracture. Fractures can occur following a fall or injury, or in severe cases even from a minor bump to the area (NOF, 2018). Osteoporotic bones have a honeycomb appears due to the loss in bone density. For women over 50, the risk of osteoporosis increases and the provider should order a bone density scan to monitor the structure of the bone. Bone density scans are the only diagnostic testing for osteoporosis prior to a broken bone (NOF, 2018). The diagnostic test for bone density is done through x-ray called a Dexa Scan. Dexa stands for dual energy x-ray absorptiometry. (NOF, 2018). Dexa scans should be conducted every 1-2 years depending on patient history and risk factors. The Dexa scan results are determined by a T-score. Normal T-score results are -1.0 and anything above -1.0 are mild to severe osteoporosis (NOF, 2018). One of the medications used to treat osteoporosis is Actonel. Actonel is an oral medication that is taken daily. The mediation is designed to slow bone loss and even help to prevent fractures. (Actonel, 2017). One of the side effects that needs to be discussed with patients is that is can cause GI upset, so it the patient has a history of GI issues, another medication is most likely the better option.

Question 2: SurvivalNEED A VERY DETAILED ANSWER WITH

Question 2: Survival

NEED A VERY DETAILED ANSWER WITH

REFERENCING

You are now 18 months into your new venture. You have made some mistakes but at last you have your first satisfied customers, some new products are nearly ready to add to your first offerings, and you are beginning to attract the attention of the business press. Jeb has taken on a more strategic role in the company while you have focused on operations. He has convinced you that you need to lease some expansion space to accommodate your impending growth. He happens to have an aunt that has space available and that is reasonably priced. Although you have probably taken on more space than you will need for at least two years under even the most optimistic scenario, you both have just signed a five year lease.

You both realize that you will need some more cash to fund the business; in fact it looks like you will need up to a $1 million within six months. Jeb has spoken with the bank and they indicated that they will provide a line of credit for half this amount if a) you and Jeb use your houses as collateral to secure the debt, and b) you raise the other half of the needed cash from equity. Jeb suggests that he approach his Aunt Marie again, as she just might be interested in making an equity investment. You both meet with her. She is clearly a shrewd businessperson and sees that your company may be an interesting investment. She immediately picks up that your weakness is the thinness of the management team, and suggests that you find someone with experience to take over the sales management role while you go back to doing what you are best at – product innovation and mentoring new hires. In fact, she has a close friend, Alex, who may be the perfect fit – she suggests that you take a look at him for the role. Alex is the sales manager for a direct competitor called “Great Guns” located in a nearby town. He is willing to join your company as he is “disenchanted with the management at Great Guns” and your company offers an upside if you are willing to provide him with some stock rights in the company. He is willing to take a salary cut in moving.

Jeb is enthusiastic about this hire; you feel that his judgment may be clouded a little by the need to get the funding. When you meet Alex alone, you are not entirely comfortable with him, but you cannot find any real reason why he could not have done a good job, and frankly, you are getting really frazzled with the 16 hour days that you are putting in. Alex can relieve the stress immediately.

a) Do you agree to hire Alex? Provide your reasoning. If yes, how would you structure his compensation package at this stage of the company? If no, how would you handle the situation with Jeb? His Aunt Marie? You still need a sales manager; what would you do to find and hire an alternative to Alex?

Whether or not you hire Alex you still need to sell $500,000 of equity in the company, and Jeb’s Aunt Marie hasn’t made any firm commitments one way or the other. A couple months go by, and through a chance meeting at a local fund raiser for the area Humane Society animal shelter you make the acquaintance of Dr. Lucas Furber, a noted orthopedic surgeon who has built a highly successful sports medicine clinic and who has a soft spot for young go-getters trying to carve out their own places in the world. He is incredibly well-connected in the local entrepreneurial finance community, has made a number of Angel investments in the past, likes your story, and is willing to consider investing in your company. However, in exchange for the $500,000 he wants a 33.33% stake in the company and a seat on the board. He argues this equity stake is justified, given the early stage of your company and the risk he’d be taking (and knowing your lack of concrete alternatives and need for an investor in order to get the bank financing). He points out that this puts the valuation of your company at $1.5 million, and that your own $200K investment has just increased in value 150%.

About this time, Jeb informs you that the cash is running out faster than anticipated and the company needs to close on funding within four weeks. The bank seems to be lined up, and Jeb has offered to use his new house as collateral. For the sake of the partnership you have decided, with some trepidation, to match this with your home as an additional pledge against the loan. Your spouse is not too happy about this but agrees to go along. You have both set up a meeting with Aunt Marie at the end of the week to go over your progress and see whether or not she is interested in investing in the company, and what terms she will be seeking.

b) How are you going to handle this meeting? Assuming Aunt Marie is interested in investing, what kind of terms do you offer her? Which potential equity partner is more attractive to you, and why? How will you use the two potential equity investors in your negotiations with each of them? What terms and conditions are you willing to accept from each investor? Are they the same? Explain why or why not.
