The mental health providers are losing their
critical clinical skill set. They do not get the exposure or opportunity to
deal with psychiatric emergencies, psychotic patients or combative patients.
Typically, they treat active duty service members who do not suffer from
Schizophrenia, Bipolar, Psychosis, delusions, etc. This is a critical skill set
that may be required in a deployed location. If you do not treat these types of
patients, you may not be aware of current medications and treatment options.
Currently there is not a training agreement in place so that they mental health
providers are able to go in town locally and work at a psychiatric mental
health inpatient unit, where they will have exposure to a variety of mental
health disorders/conditions. There needs to be a training agreement in place
with the local hospitals so that we can ensure these providers are proficient
in treating all mental health disorders.
This is the problem, you will need to come up with
the defined end state, this is also Air Force mental health providers
COA Development (25%):
The COA the student selected is adequate, feasible, acceptable,
complete, developed (acceptable to appropriate level of decision maker), and
displays innovative thinking towards solving the problem.
There only needs to be 1
course of action for the problem
A course of action (COA)
consists of the following information:
what type of action should occur; why the action is required; who will
take the action; and the expected outcomes.
A valid COA is one that is:
Adequate—Can accomplish (or
appropriately support) the mission.
Feasible—Can accomplish the
mission within the established time, space, and resource limitations.
balance cost and risk with the advantage gained and maintained.
sufficiently different from other COAs.
objectives, effects, and tasks to be performed; concepts for deployment,
employment, and sustainment; time estimates for achieving objectives; mission
success criteria; and end state.
Second and Third Order Effects (STOEs) (25%): The student developed multiple STOEs that
result from the implementation of the chosen COA. Additionally, the student provided good linkages
between the STOEs with appropriate source support data.
This should be the
primary, secondary and third order effect of your COA.
Create a list,
by brainstorming, of all entities that could be effected by the execution of
your selected course of action (COA).
Consider primary, secondary, and potential tertiary factors.
Consider and evaluate the potential cause – effect pairings from the
COA to primary effects (labeled Effect1). Also, determine one additional effect from
the given primary effects (labeled as Effect2).
Risk/Constraining Factors (20%): The student identified risk/constraining
factors and provided appropriate details on how the selected COA mitigates
What risk could be associated with your course of action
Communication and Mechanics (10%): The student’s paper provided an
introduction, a developed body, a conclusion, appropriate transitions and
correctly cited references within the paper.
The paper is easy to read with few grammatical and spelling errors.
Pretty self explanatory
