alternative dispute resolution in healthcare

The Annotated Bibliography and the Research Paper are related assignments. The assignments will require you to research and write a review of the existing literature and then develop the information from your sources into a research paper. Both your research and the paper will explore the use of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) in healthcare, including options for Bible-based dispute resolution, focusing on the issues raised in using ADR to resolve malpractice claims without, or limiting, litigation..

In the Annotated Bibliography, you will identify and discuss at least 10 scholarly sources relevant to the topic, other than the Reading & Study materials and the Bible. At least 2 of the sources must relate to your particular area of practice in healthcare (physician, nurse, allied health professional [be specific], administration, etc.), and at least 2 of the sources must relate to biblical worldview considerations of the topic. You are not required to use all of these sources in your Research Paper, and you may use other sources not reported here. The Annotated Bibliography documents your background on this topic and provides a snapshot of your research and analysis for the paper

In the Research Paper, you will apply the sources from your Annotated Bibliography (and others you may find after submitting the Annotated Bibliography) to explore the use of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) in healthcare, including options for Bible-based dispute resolution, focusing on the issues raised in using ADR to resolve malpractice claims without, or limiting, litigation.

Your paper must examine what options you would recommend for your healthcare facility with support from your research and analysis. The final paper must include at least 5 scholarly sources other than the Reading & Study materials and the Bible, cited in-text and in a reference list. You must also integrate biblical analysis of the topic into the paper.

The Research Paper must contain at least 1,500 words and follow current APA format. The title page, abstract, and reference list do not count towards the length requirement. You will submit your paper as a Word document.
