Trust Factor

There are many elements that contribute to the specialzed populations’ distrust of the healthcare system. A few of them are trustworthiness, trans cultural communication, and cultural competence. Knowing more about these elements will help to break down the distrust of the healthcare system and help to build up more trust which is extremely important because when there is no trust, patients do not seek preventative care or specialty care. According to Cook, Kosoko-Lasaki, and O’Brien (2009) trust and distrust play significant roles in the interactions with in the healthcare system (p.16). This trust drives the frequency of the interactions between the culture and healthcare professionals. Trust can also be generational deriving from family members past experiences, also from others within the culture and this can affect future relationships within a particular group. Just like distrust can drive down interactions trust and increased understanding can increase a cultures competence. Trustworthiness can go a long way in helping clients and healthcare as a whole. Cultural competency has been attempting to improve starting at the caregiver and institutional levels. Policies have been made to heighten the sensitivity awareness when caring for others. “A big challenge to the adoption of cultural competency education is that no single method or body of knowledge has been proven to be the most effective for educating health professionals”(Cook et al, 2009, p21). There have been no daily actions that have been agreed upon or identified and this makes it hard for healthcare professional to move past simple nondiscriminatory practices. To help set up a proper environment for all that is involved from leadership to clients there has to be information…...

Trust Factor

...HLT 205 – July 6, 2013 Ms. Daisy Savarirajan Trust Factor I have realized the United States has a lot of work ahead of them to do with our health care system compared to other countries, such as Japan, Great Britain, Germany and the rest of the world with national health care coverage for all. I wonder what does it takes to get us there. I believe, if the President, Congress and the rich all come into agreement with some hard decision and realities they can come up with a solution. Since the rich is running the country, the little people have to suffer the consequences because it all boils down to the cost, The cost for health care is the biggest challenge that everyone has to come into agreement. If we have a standardized price and cost for everything, such as you premium insurance cost will be $1,500 a month and the specialties services $50.00 deductible, hospital stays $100.00 a day, and prescriptions drugs $10.00 for every script for everyone, this will make a difference for everyone. The Obama plan cost over a trillion dollars, if we can mirror the Pelosi/Reid plans and not have it stopped by the bipartisan majority we can make head way. We will have to compromise and fight until this time, or we will have big problems of everyone gouging on who can make more money, until we can get everyone on one accord with national health care plan as the Japanese has established.

Unit Trust

...The main role of a unit trust consultant would be distributing unit trust or mutual funds on behalf of a unit trust managemen company/ bank to the public. By explaining and analysing each and every fund that are distributed, unit trust consultant aid their clients in giving their best bets on their investments. In reality, a unit trust consultant is helping their clients in achieving financial independence at earlier age. And these need to start from educating them how important a financial plan is. Many people do not sense the urge of having a financial plan till they face financial difficulties. Therefore most of the governments “force” their citizens to build up their personal retirement fund which is mostly directly deducted from their pay/wages. For example, in Malaysia, every employees and employers ought to contribute to Employee Provident Fund (EPF). People can only withdraw the money when they reach the age of 55. However, 70% of the contributors spent all their EPF money after 3 years from their retirement, which seems do not serve the main purpose of setting up EPF. Thus in this case, unit trust consultant comes in and serve a role. There are many ways or types of investment which we can use to build up retirement fund. Long term investment in unit trust would be one of the most efficient way to build up a fund and at the same time offer a handsome return. There are 2 rules to follow in investing for unit trust: First, mid to long term investment. Second,...

Hris & Trust

...1. INTRODUCTION In this term paper, I will explore the notion of ‘Technology Trust’ and if it impacts Human Resource Information Systems (HRIS) implementation success. According to my research, there are many studies focusing on how an HRIS project can be initiated and implemented efficiently and effectively. However, there is not much information if ‘technology trust’ is an influential factor to reach the ultimate goal of HRIS implementation. The study Lippert and Swiercz (2005) worked to explore several propositions about the relationship between HRIS and Technology Trust and the effect of the relationship on HRIS implementation success. We know that trust is an essential component of all relationships. Research shows that trust is not only useful, but also central to understanding individual behavior in varied domains such as teamwork, risk-taking and job performance, information systems implementation, etc. (McKnight et al, 2011) Therefore, it is crucial to explore if the notion of “technology trust” helps explain why there are HRIS implementation failures and explain how to integrate the HRIS implementation process since it is proven that most organizations deploy less than 25% of the functionality of HRIS (Boroughs et al, 2008). Browne and Roguch (2001) stated that “despite the good faith efforts by organizations, analysts, and users, majority of systems are abandoned before completion or fail to meet user requirements.” The recent reports explain reasons the...

While in a 2 strict mathematical sense, iterations should be run to con6 vergence, it is more common to use only a fixed number of 3 practice.

In the matrix equation r = α · T · r + (1 − α) · d, vector d is a static score distribution vector of arbitrary, non-negative entries summing up to one. Vector d can be used to assign a non-zero static score to a set of special pages only; the score of such special pages is then spread during the iterations to the pages they point to. 3 Assessing Trust 3.1 Oracle and Trust Functions As discussed in Section 1,......

Providian Trust

...Providian Trust (1) What key issues and challenges led to the initiation of the Access+ project? The key issues and challenges let to the initiation are as follows: * The Pension and Institutional Trust Services business had $42.7 billion in assets in 1994,which was the tenth-largest provider and they were losing money. They had outdated reporting systems as far as the clients were concerned. The institutional custody business was becoming extremely technology-intensive, with some of the larger players outsourcing their entire backroom function in order to make large operations more effective. * Internal process: The administrative functions were being done both by the front and back offices. There is an environment where everybody could point a finger at everybody else if something went wrong. The trust officers blamed the operations people and the operations people blamed the trust officers. * Intense client demand: (2) What organizational changes that the company should have made during the project to ensure the success of the Access+ project? * The front office of PITS and Personal Trust and the back office of Operation department which were responsible for handling, settlement, and record keeping for securities should made the changes during the project. * All existing trust information would be converted to the Access Plus system and the Operations group would become the primary caretakers of the data, taking over sole......

...Trust in the Workplace Trust starts with confidence in and reliance on good qualities, especially fairness, truth, honor, or ability. Trust in the workplace is essential. Untruthfulness can cause employees to lose moral, productivity and lead to feelings of low esteem. To be part of a team in an organization one must have respect for his/her team mates and subordinates in order to gain the mutual respect that which is expected. In the workplace, there are trust issues for the entire senior management team. One reason for distrust is that the management team use an autocratic method of managing, giving the other team members no room to be creative. It is as if the management team has personal issues with internal security within oneself and their work position in the organization. There are members of the management team who are very organized and proclaim to be team players, but it disheartens one to walk up on conversations about employees that should not be taking place in the hall. Those conversations should be behind closed doors with other members of the management team. According to Dave Bowman, a Human Resources Expert, “Many experts agree that trust is perhaps the most important element of a harmonious, synergistic and efficient work environment. Organizations that have trust among employees are usually successful; those that don't frequently are not.” Bowman gives five ways to create and build trust in their teams: * Establish and maintain integrity.......

...   A/B Trusts An A/B Trust is any type of trust that splits into two separate and distinct trusts upon the death of the grantor. One of the separate and distinct trusts is a Credit Shelter Trust, which is designed to hold as much of the grantor's property as is sheltered from the federal estate tax by virtue of the unified credit; i.e., $2,000,000 for decedent's dying in years 2006, 2007, and 2008, and $3,500,000 for decedent's dying in the year 2009. The other separate and distinct trust is a Marital Trust, which is designed to hold the remainder of the decedent's property, which is sheltered from the federal estate tax by virtue of the unlimited marital deduction. These separate and distinct trusts are designed to eliminate or reduce the federal estate tax liability of a married couple over the deaths of both spouses. An A/B Trust arrangement can be created under a living trust or a testamentary trust, since these provisions do not take effect until after the grantor's death. See "Credit Shelter Trusts" and "Marital Trusts." See also "Family Trusts" and "By-Pass Trusts." Back to Table of Contents     Asset Protection Trusts An "Asset Protection Trust" is a type of trust that is designed to protect assets from the claims of creditors.

Unit Trust

...MARKET EFFICIENCY AND THE PERSISTENCE OF UNIT TRUST PERFORMANCE IN MALAYSIA CHAPTER 1 1.1 Introduction According to M.Rhodes, Research paper no. 2002 -2006, their offerings on the price many choose to highlight their past performance, implicitly as an indicator of future returns. The existence of persistence in performance is indicative of market Inefficiencies which some, but not all, fund managers are able to exploit. In an extension to the current literature the paper tests the proposition that changes to infrastructure, insomuch as they might affect market efficiency, affect the persistence of performance. Evidence is also presented on whether excess returns are the result of better skill or information for some managers or the existence of a momentum effect in stock returns. When picking a fund an investor faces a bewildering yet important choice from amongst several hundred product offerings and there is a considerable degree of price dispersion. Studies of Malaysia funds have relied on the assumption that conditions determining market efficiency, or the ability of fund managers to exploit inefficiencies, do not change significantly during the period examined. According to this research paper (2002-6), the unit trust industry in Malaysia can be considered relatively young. The first unit trust, Malaysia Investment Fund was launched in Dec. 2, 1966 by Asia Unit Trusts Be&ad. However, the industry can be expected to take off in the years ahead in light of......

Concept of Trust

...Concept of Trust All human beings want a person they can talk to about important matters they don’t want public and someone they can rely on. People want someone who has strength they don’t have to help them. Some human being want to trust people some don’t and there are others who can trust many or only a certain few. But what causes someone to be able to trust people? How do you know you trust someone? How long can you trust someone and what can you trust them about? There are many factors to the concept of trust that make it what it is. Some people feel that they don’t trust people even though they just met just because of the way they act or the gestures they make. Do you really know you can trust someone from the way they move? In the article “Who’s Trustworthy? A Robot Can Help Teach Us” by Tara Parker-Pope there was a research experiment conducted using 86 undergraduate students. This experiment involved the students getting tokens and exchanging tokens with other people to get more but you had to work in pairs. The catch is you can take tokens from your partner and you don’t have to give them back and you can win more tokes then your partner. The point of this is to see if you can trust your partner or see if he/she would take it all and leave you dry and they filled out a survey to see if you trusted this person because of the way he acted or moved. Later on in the experiment the students where one by one sent to this robot to have a conversation. This robot made...

Multiply the Trust Factor Inside Your Organization

...readMultiply The Trust Factor Inside Your Organizatio posted by Keyira Greene (you) , Oct 31, 2015, 11:38 AM I really enjoyed reading "Multiply The Trust Factor Inside Your Organization". The article was written by Heather R. Huhmnan and was published November 28, 2014. The article discussed how surveys, created by Interaction Associates and polled by employees in the workplace, think their companies lacks trust. Trust within employers has decreased within the past year. Many employers have acknowledge trust to be a very important element for success in an organization. In the article the writer also lists 10 ways to improve trust within the workplace when one is in management. These 10 steps are as followed: 1. Involve staffers in decisions directly affecting them- Employees do not like to be left in the blind about business decisions that affects them. Holding a meeting during a decision-making process is very important in gaining trust within a company. It gives employees the opportunity to voice their questions or concerns, suggestions or ideas, and be heard my their leaders. 2. Pay close attention to relationships-When an employee quits, it is often because of the boss. Encourage managers to promote transparent communication and to offer help employees when it's needed. 3.

Wills, Trusts

...Wills, Trusts and Estate Planning Everyday many loved ones die without a Will in place and as a result, their affairs are left in limbo. Without a valid Will in place, your loved ones will be left to pick up the pieces, pay the unpaid bills and correspond and possibly litigate with creditors. There is a common misconception that a Will can or should only be created later in life. However, if you have assets eg. a house, savings, or a business, and people or others you would like to look after, you must consider making a will no matter your age. Thinking, talking & planning for death may feel uncomfortable. However, if you died or became incapacitated, through illness, accident, old age or emergency without sorting your affairs, this could wreak havoc on those you’ve left behind. Like Wills, another widely misunderstood concept is that of trusts. Trusts are often seen as something only the rich need to be concerned with. A trust is created when assets (which can include property, cash, shares etc) are transferred by a person (the settlor) to one or more persons (the trustees) with instructions that they are held for the benefit of others (the beneficiaries). A trust may be set up during a person’s lifetime and have immediate effect, in which case it is usually evidenced by a formal trust deed and commonly referred to as a settlement. Trusts play a key role in everyday life and can provide to be extremely useful depending on the intentions of the Settlor. A...

First we briefly review the role of trust. Then we analyze the state-of-the-art of the theoretical and empirical literature on trust creation and antecedents for experienced trustworthiness. As a result of the literature review and our knowledge of the context in praxis, we create a model on organizational trust building where the interplay of inter-organizational and inter-personal trust is scrutinized. Potential challenges for our model are first the asymmetry of organizations and actors and secondly the volatility of the business. The opportunity window for partnering firms may be very short i.e. there is not much time for natural development of trust based on incremental investments and social or character similarity, but so called “fast” or “swift” trust is needed. As a managerial contribution we suggest some practices and processes, which could be used for organizational trust building. These are developed from the viewpoint of large organization boundary-spanners (partner/vendor managers)......

Trust Mechanisms

...Trust In Semantic Web Muhammad Arslan Shafiq (081212) Department of Computer Science SZABIST Islamabad, Pakistan _______________________________________________ _______________________________________________ Abstract—Trust management is important in semantic web in order to achieve the goals of semantic web vision. In this paper two approaches of implementing trust have been discussed. One approach is strong and secure i.e. Policy based systems, the other approach is more of a social approach which takes feedback from the users in order to build and maintain trust. Also discussed in this paper are pros and cons of both the techniques. Keywords-component; semantic web;Trust; Policy Based Systen; Reputation Based Sytems Introduction The idea behind semantic web seems great and offers a lot but why one should trust in semantic web. Who would trust such a system where anyone can say anything. We say that it is going to be a smart web, it will be intelligent and it will know the semantics. It will know what we are looking for. But what happens when a person says that x is yellow and another person says x is not yellow. Would semantic web fall apart? The idea behind SW is its authenticity of information which isn’t available in today’s web. Information comes from different sources which could be wrong or write and for a specific situation. So how are we going to determine which is reliable and whom should we believe? To tackle......
