Apply systems theory to the examination of a problem in a department or a unit within a healthcare organizationApplication: Systems TheoryAs noted in the Learning Resources, systems theory provides a meaningful and beneficial means of examining challenges in health care organizations. To do this effectively, however, it is essential to assess all system components, as some may be relatively healthy while others are problematic.For this Assignment, you apply systems theory to the examination of a problem in a department or a unit within a healthcare organization. (Note: You may use the same problem you identified for the Discussion as long as it meets the criteria for this assignment.)To prepare:Review the Meyer article, “Nursing Services Delivery Theory: An Open System Approach,” in this week’s Learning Resources. Focus especially on the information presented in Table 1 (p. 2831) and Figure 2 (p. 2833).Reflect on your organization or one with which you are familiar. Within a particular department or unit in this organization, identify a problem the staff is encountering.Using Table 1 in the Meyer article as a guide, analyze the department or unit, identifying inputs, throughput, output, cycles of events, and negative feedback. Consider whether the problem you have selected relates to input, throughput, output, cycles of events, and/or negative feedback.Think about how you could address the problem
