Competency Analysis

The capstone project has exposed me to a variety of skills and competencies essential for healthcare professionals. Throughout this project, I have enhanced my research and investigation skills to identify healthcare issues and understand their impact on the existing healthcare environment. The assessments in this module have allowed me to explore numerous evidence-based approaches to improve the quality of care and services provided in healthcare facilities. This final exercise has introduced me to the competencies healthcare workers must demonstrate in a professional setting.

As a creative healthcare professional, I aim to advance my career to a more radical stage in the future. Two primary areas I plan to develop further are my knowledge and communication skills. Having assumed leadership roles, I have recognized the need to improve my communication skills. Effective verbal

interaction is crucial for conveying information from top management to subordinate staff. Additionally, I aim to deepen my expertise in healthcare by pursuing a Doctorate in Healthcare Information Management Systems, a long-term goal I hope to achieve by December 2025 while studying part-time.

I also plan to enroll in a short course on health communication and take the ACHE certification exam by June 2024 to enhance my communication skills. Furthermore, I intend to extend my services as a consultant in a private healthcare institution to sustain and develop my healthcare leadership skills. Advanced knowledge in healthcare will enhance my data-seeking skills, allowing me to integrate scientific methods in proposing solutions in healthcare. Finally, the health communication course will help me as a leader to convey information effectively across all administrative levels, preventing communication breakdowns.
