One characteristic of the health care environment is that it is changing, and a changing environment requires health care professionals to be better communicators, both orally and in writing

Health Science

One characteristic of the health care environment is that it is changing, and a changing environment requires health care professionals to be better communicators, both orally and in writing. Yet, workloads in most areas of health care are intensifying, making effective communications more difficult to attain.

This week, we will talk about some of the fears that surround the writing process and how to overcome them to become the effective communicators demanded in the health care industry.

 

In this activity we are going to talk about plagiarism, how it might occur, and what to know to avoid it. Thinking about a health professional’s role and the opportunities where plagiarism might exist is important so that plagiarism can be avoided. It is not only dishonest but ethically wrong to plagiarize someone else’s work by using it as your own and not giving them the proper credit.

As you engage with this week’s readings, viewings, and discussion with one another, be sure to read what has already been posted and then add substantively to the discussion. Avoid mini-papers and instead focus on interacting with one another as you go through the questions. Time goes quickly, so post early! The first question is based on what you have learned so far in this course so that you can post immediately without having completed all of this week’s readings.
 

First, let’s start with a question based on your experiences and/or opinion:

  • Does learning that something has been plagiarized change its validity or change the value of what has been written? Would it make you less likely to use that information in your own work or study? Please feel free to share examples from media coverage.

Integrating what you’ve learned from the readings, viewings, and your experience, let’s move to the next question.

  • What makes plagiarism so easy, so tempting – and so dangerous?
  • As an educational institution, we grapple with plagiarism all the time. Some of it is unintentional or accidental, and some is deliberate. As a college, what should we do with these situations? Should there be a no-tolerance policy, or another type of policy?
  • As a student, what additional information do you need, or would be helpful to know, regarding plagiarism?

 

This discussion will be graded using a rubric. Please review this rubric prior to beginning the discussion. You can view the rubric by clicking on "Discussion Rubric" on the Course Rubrics page within the Start Here module. All discussions combined are worth 30% of your final course grade.

Consult the Discussion Posting Guide for information about writing your discussion posts. It is recommended that you write your post in a document first. Check your work and correct any spelling or grammatical errors. When you are ready to make your initial post, click on "Reply." Then copy/paste the text into the message field, and click “Post Reply.” 

To respond to a peer, click “Reply” beneath her or his post and continue as with an initial post.
