Knowing Your Audience: Chilean Mine Disaster

It is important to understand your audience when delivering messages. This is a vital importance when delivering messages that deal with a catastrophic incident like the Chilean mine disaster of 2010. It is important that the messages that are received are clear, concise and release pertinent information to the parties involved. There are many different people involved in situations like this; there are the rescues personal, employees of the company involved, families, clergy, news reporters and emergency medical personal who all need different parts of information to perform their efficiently.
“The key to effective communication is shared understanding of the information.” (Cheesebro, O'connor, & Riso, “Chapter 1: Communication Concepts, Communication Defined” 2010). Different people will react to this news in varied ways. The rescuers will want to know the specifics like what actually happened, how many people were involved, what supplies they may have available, and what are the safety procedures they have in place. They will need as much information as is available. “Officials said the roof of the main ramp down into mine was thought to have collapsed around 100m (328ft) above the miners' heads” ("Chile mine collapse traps 34 miners", 2010). This is the type of information that the rescuers need to be aware of when making judgments about how to rescue the miners. The families of the miner will be looking for a different type of message. They will want to know who is trapped, what the status of the miners is and what is being done to bring the miners home. Reported by BBC "We hope they are all fine, but we are also angry because we have no information about our relatives," one woman said ("Chile mine…...

Knowing What You Believe

...Why is it important to know what you believe and why you believe it? The importance of knowing what I believe in would give me the optimum confident in my faith; and in order for that to happen I would have to be accurate in my knowledge of beliefs. I would need to know for myself what the truth is in order to speak belief to someone else. I would also have to present a sense of patience in my actions. I do not think that I would convince anyone of my belief if my tone of voice was hostile and abrupt. I feel if a person is calm they would be more substantial and convincing to believe in. Belief, I feel, is a feeling of preciseness and being confident of what is stated; and if there isn’t any confidants; nor knowledge of what we believe in there isn’t a reason of cause. Identify what you believe about God, the Bible and Jesus Christ. Why do you believe them? I know that God is real and that he created me and love me. We all are place on this earth with a purpose that is given by God and without him I believe there is no existent, he is the source for our lives. It is known by me that being separated from God will result in a disastrous life. The Bible I know is philosophic book of words of God, which is written to give us guide lines, of the way that we lived in the past and present. Jesus Christ is the son of God and he gave his life for our sins; I also believe that Jesus Christ rose from the dead. We all have different beliefs about our savior Jesus Christ......

Knowing Yourself

...The first assessment test was an analysis on “how creative I am”, I socred a positive 11, scores range from negative 12 and +18, the higher your score the more you display characteristics associated with a creative personality. I somewhat agree with this because I do believe in certain situations I can be creative although I wouldn’t consider myself as being the most creative, The second assessment was “what motivates me” I had a score of 16 on growth needs, 12 relatedness and 13 on existence needs, To be honest I really didn’t understand the end results of this assessment. My third self assessment was “what’ s my attitude toward achievement,” where my favor of seeing successful people fall was 24 and 47 for seeing successful people rewarded. Basically what it says is that I think highly of people who become successful and believe they deserve all the benefits that come along with success. This is true about me because I am all for success and I feel like if I work really hard at it that I deserve the outcome. I guess the 24 points of my favor in them falling come from the question I answered no to them being publicly glorified. Just because you are successful doesn’t mean you deserve to be put on a pedestal above anyone else I also took an assessment on my “ethic value”. Where I averaged out with most people, and on the “what time of the day I am the most productive,” I scored a 37 meaning I am intermediate when I have something not so important to do I am an evening......

Knowing Where You Come from

...Robert B. Johnson EDU 210 August 17, 2013 <Instructor> Knowing where you come from. Marcus Garvey once said a people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots. If education is that tree, constantly growing and sprouting leaves, then we must know our roots so we can keep this tree strong. Education has come so far over the course of time, and though constantly evolving, has seen many adversities. Overcoming segregation, culture diversity, and the struggle to implement programs that create equality, shows the desire to build a better future. However, have we truly learned from our problems of the past or are we headed to a state of regression? It’s no secret that our nation is built on a dark history of slavery and segregation. However, the second the first slave owner taught his slaves English to better communication and increase productivity, he also inspired the desire to learn and sparked a flame of change. Though this change was on the rise the need for segregation was still enforced. In 1892 Homer Plessy a Creole man who could easily pass for white, sat in a white’s only car of the east Louisiana Railroad and proclaimed his was African American. Plessy was arrested for his actions, and in 1896 his case was made that the law which stated separation as long as equal was unjust and went against the 13th and 14th amendment. Unknown at the time his arrest would pave the way for a major educational change (Womer...

Ways of Knowing

...Ways of Knowing Carper’s Ways of Knowing consists of four different patterns. The ways of knowing patterns are empirical, personal, ethical, and aesthetic. This theory help bring all four ways of knowing into patient care and into the nursing process. Empirical knowing is the scientific knowledge or science of nursing. A 69 year old man under my care in the Emergency Room presented with palpitation with slight chest discomfort. After initiating standing orders for chest pain, labs, IV access, oxygen by nasal cannula, and EKG, his potassium level came back highly elevated. I notified the doctor right away since he had not yet seen the results of the blood work. The proper medications were ordered to lower the patient’s potassium level. Having the empirical knowledge of blood levels and knowing the symptoms of the patient allowed me to treat this patient correct away. The personal knowledge pattern of knowing in the nursing is ‘concerned with the knowing, encountering and actualising of the concrete, individual self…standing in relation to another human being as a person.’(Carper, 1978, p. 18) I have been on the same side as a patient. One common complaint that is seen in the emergency room are the dreaded kidney stones. The last two ER jobs I had, I was unable to pass a kidney stone while at work. The pain had become so intense I had to get registered myself and become the patient. I had to be admitted due to the size of the stone and for pain control. It was an......

...Applying Ways of Knowing to a Clinical CaseGermaine ShannonUniversity of Central FloridaI was called to the emergency room by one of the nurses working that night. A patient was being discharged home by the emergency room physician, and the patient’s family had requested to speak to the nursing supervisor. When I arrived to the emergency room, the nurse that was taking care of the patient approached me. She pulled me aside, and voiced her concerns. The patient in bed three was sick with a respiratory infection. He had been given intravenous antibiotic and was now being discharged with a prescription of oral medication. According to the nurse, the patient was weak. The patient’s family was upset because the patient had missed two days of dialysis and they wanted him transferred to a hospital in Miami so he could have his dialysis done and also continue to be treated for his respiratory infection.Before approaching the family, I decided to speak to the physician so I could understand this case better and try to solve the situation in the best way possible. This was the second night that this physician had been working in the emergency room, and my first time meeting her. I told the physician that the family of the patient in bed three had requested to speak to me. The physician review of the situation was as follows: The patient had been in the emergency room earlier in the week and he had been treated for an upper respiratory infection.

...Michael Wyllys Ways of Knowing I firmly grasped my patient’s hand with my own, her breathing rattled through the oxygen mask with each labored gasp. The tourniquet tightly wrapped around her forearm, I ran the alcohol wipe over the precious vein that popped up on the top of her hand. Taking an artist’s grip of the IV catheter, I inserted the needle at a 45-degree angle into the vein. Once seeing the flash of blood in the catheter, the angle was lowered and the needle was advanced ever so slightly more to ensure the catheter had penetrated the lumen. I slipped the cannula off into the vein, pulled back the needle and disconnected. I calmly, but quickly, connected my primed line and opened up the valve, feeling that flood of excitement and relief as I watched the drops begin to fall in the drip chamber. I had just successfully inserted my first intravenous cannula, on the first try, on my own as a brand new nurse. This experience was an amazing feeling, and when reflecting back on it I can see why I was successful as I relied on the empirics of nursing. This was of knowing was impressed on me in nursing school and is what I believe to be the core of every brand new nurse. To put this way of knowing sin understandable terms, it is the factual descriptions, explanations, and predictions that make up empirical knowing (Pipe, Wellik, Buchda, Hansen, & Martyn, 2005). The proper techniques for inserting an IV cannula had been described and explained to me in the...

...Audience Analysis Paper Sheila Coy COM/285 02/24/2011 Susannah Arnim Audience Analysis Paper To make any business successful in this time and age, we must communicate appropriately to all audiences. No matter who the information is for, one must catch the attention of the person to who is for. For the process of communication requires intrapersonal and interpersonal skills, which may include and not set the boundaries too speaking and most importantly listening. Without the essential communication skills the business will fall apart and not be able to become or stay a successful company. Knowing the audience will include most of the many different types of stakeholders could influence what is to be presented. This will influence how the speaker will address the audience.

...Ways of Knowing Nursing is a very rewording profession which can blossom when incorporated into practice of Carper’s fundamental patterns of thinking. After reading Cotton and Roden article (December 2006 – January 2007), I realized great importance of understanding and implementing four concepts of thinking into daily nursing practice. According to Carper (1978:21-22) empirics, aesthetics, personal and ethical way of knowing in nursing are ‘necessary for achieving mastery in the discipline’. I believe that implementing those four patterns of knowing into daily nursing care is vital in order to provide best quality care for each patient. Nursing care should be implemented in flexible, thoughtful manner and should be carefully executed in unique situation with unique patients. Empirical Way of Knowing Empirical way of thinking is defined in article as a ‘factual, descriptive…exemplary, discursively formulated and publically verifiable which is ultimately aimed at developing abstract and theoretical explanation’ (Carper: 15). This way of thinking is executed using Evidence Based Practice. I have been a nurse for the past 10 years and I believe that empirical way of knowing is most familiar to me. For example, my facility is using Congestive Heart Failure protocol (policy created by facility based on clinical practice guidelines CPG) for patients admitted to hospital with either new onset of CHF or exacerbation of the disease. Each patient with CHF has comprehensive......

...concise and then bring everything that I talked about together with an ending that will bring understanding. In the event that I did not consider the audiences needs and wrote a report based on what I thought the audience needs I could completely miss the whole point of the report. The messaging that I wanted to get across could be missed because I was not aware of what the best way to address the audience is. There could be a chance that without knowing the tone or perception that the audience has isn’t mirrored in my report that it could make it more difficult to understand. If I am writing a report blind I could also miss key points that I know the management team may be looking for. If it is a report that has to do with conversations that were previously talked about I would want to include that information. It is important to know your audience so that the message that is being delivered is going to be communicated in the best way that your audience will understand it.

Williams University of Phoenix- IT 206 Dr. Chris Barrett, PMP 07/28/2011 From my experience, many individuals when saving a document save their documents into any random folder that comes up. Unfortunately this is cause for misplaced documents when trying to locate them at a later date. Thankfully, there are many helpful ways to locate recently saved documents. One step would be to click on the Office button which is located at the top left of your Microsoft Word document, and once the box drops down to the right-side panel will be the top nine recently saved documents. A quick reference would be to click Save and that will take you straight to your default Save designated folder. There are some various ways which have been utilized to lessen the routinely misplaced saved documents which will ultimately make it effortless to locate your recent and/or old files. First, you should create a title for your document, something that you will easily remember in the future to be able to locate it.

Ways of Knowing

...Ways of Knowing D. Boone Ways of Knowing What are the four patterns of knowing fundamental to the professional nurse? Unlike many other professions, the nursing profession has many distinct and unique components. Nurses’ knowledge is acquired from many different sources and life experiences. Although hands on clinical skills are necessary, these skills are not usable alone. The ways of knowing is much more than the educational components of a college degree and licensure. Barbara Carper established four patterns of knowing which are needed in order to learn and apply nursing knowledge. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the four patterns of knowing, describe its relation to professional nursing and reflect upon these patterns in personal practice. Barbara Carper was a nurse pioneer who developed the four fundamental patterns of knowing in nursing. According to Carper (1978), “Understanding these patterns is essential for the teaching and learning of nursing” (P. 13). Carper identified four fundamental patterns of knowing which she classified as empirical, esthetic, personal and ethical. Carper (1978) states “The four patterns are distinguished according to logical type of meaning and designed as: (1) empirics, the science of nursing; (2) esthetics, the art of nursing; (3) the components of personal knowledge in nursing; and (4) ethics, the component of moral knowledge in nursing” (P. 14). Nursing knowledge goes beyond factual information. According......

Knowing the Audience

...Knowing Your Audience Paper and Communication Release To know your audience would be an extremely significant mark at any time a company was to communicate material to a group or organization. Knowing your audience proves to be even more significant when a company has to deal with the outcome resulting from a disaster. The disaster of the Chilean copper mine in South America is one example of where knowing your audience was a very significant issue. In a Chilean copper mine, a disastrous downfall in one of the shafts of the mine has left 33 miners trapped 310 meters (1017 feet) below the ground. The outcomes of the company and their reaction to the disaster would eventually define how the world, their audience, would see them. It turns out to be very imperative that the representatives of the company who issues updates and information to the public know their audience well. The audience the company would be reporting to would be made up of the news correspondence, the victim's families, and the media. Not only would the company representative have to keep the prestige and point of view of the mining company in one piece, they would have to issue precise and straightforward information that would not always be in the greatest interest of the company's standing. The collapse would not only have emotional impact on the 33 miners trapped underground, the family members of those miners would be distressed as well. The family members of those 33 men would have to wait in......
