The list of outcomes is deemed in order for us students to provide culturally competent care to our patients. The paper does a great job in accomplishing these outcomes and understanding them better for
Inter-Professional Education (IPE) in the healthcare context focuses on health professionals and students learning with, from and about one another to improve collaboration and the quality of patient care (Thistlethwaite, 2012). It is of great importance that all the three conditions are met in order to have inter-professional learning and education rather than having students just standing together in the same classroom or other settings. IPE generates a collaborative learning environment in which educators and learners, coming from different professional backgrounds, interact and in which they develop knowledge, skills and attitudes that will be of main importance during team practice (Buring, et al., 2009). The collaborative practice allows finding shared and more creative solutions to the problems faced, it is a constructive process supported by the insights of an entire team (Gray, 1989).
The integration of technologies simulation into the curriculum of the nursing education provides benefits for the student and the faculty related to improvement of the competencies and patient safety. The teaching strategies of simulation provide to enhance the confidence and communication among the nursing students. In addition, clinical simulation provides to improve skills and goals for each clinical setting (Cannon & Boswell, 2016). Although, simulation have demonstrated to enhance in the students the levels of cognitive, affective and psychomotor.
Therapists have to see their patient in multiple sessions. Besides knowing the patient’s name and injury, physical therapists can learn more about their patients during their sessions. While helping their patients get better, physical therapists can have friendly conversations with their patients and get to know them better. The relationship between physical therapists and their clients is so strong, and that’s what interest me most about this major. I would enjoy a job where I can informally talk to my clients, gaining a good relationship with them, while improving their injury.
One important aspect of my future career was forming a relationship with potential patients. I wanted to build a bond that would help motivate the individual to become well again. Physical therapy will allow me to accomplish that and more. A strength of this career is the great job expectancy for the future which will allow for many opportunities for this
In becoming one, I hope to accomplish many things. I want to be able to utilize the skills and knowledge that I have developed and apply them to the best of my ability in the care of my patients. By doing so, I will make an impact on the lives of every patient that I meet. Furthermore, I will continue to learn throughout my practice by continually researching new proven methods of care and eventually contributing to the improvement of health care in the future. Overall, I envision myself to not only be a care provider, but also a leader, researcher, advocate, and educator (Yoost & Crawford, 2016).
Reflective practices as well as self awareness are very important for health care professional to develop their skills in providing high quality care (Bulman and Schultz, 2013). I was able to carry out nursing intervention for Anne effectively and provide sufficient health promotion advices. My academic work and the previous placements along with the self reflection enabled me to reinforce my knowledge and clinical skills, but more importantly, it developed my self confidence level. My efforts to seeking assistance and assessment of my skills enabled me to step up my skills to become more independent and I was able to confidently complete my nursing interventions for Anne. I was also able to provide the rationale for the nursing interventions that I offered to Anne and this helped to improve the effectiveness of my nursing practice.
The nursing becomes more and more involved in the communication with patients and their families, and also providing not only physical, but also emotional support. In some cases it literally means support for patients until the end of life. Moreover, it is important to be able to develop relationships with patients quickly and clearly understand their needs. Thus, I believe I have all of the above mentioned qualities and will do my best to improve them even more. The various skills which I gained while working in the operation theatre can be basis for the future studying and practice.
I was a given an opportunity to became more observant to what is happening around me and pay attention to intricate details and use them to make connections about the person I am taking care of. This quality improves because of the clinicals exposure and the simulations I had experience. I found these activities to be very helpful because it makes me critically think of the actions I would do and words I would said in front of a real patient. These exposures made me also learned to be creative on my plan of care. Furthermore, I know that I did not only improve my knowledge skill, but I also see development on my interpersonal skills with the people I interact with.
Activities Activities will be designed to improve knowledge, competence, performance, and, ultimately, patient outcomes with innovative and effective learning formats that may include live activities such as regularly scheduled series, courses, conferences, and research symposia; and performance improvement curriculum. We encourage innovative use of new technologies and approaches. The medical education program seeks to provide continuing medical education activities free of commercial bias and with transparent disclosure of any potential conflicts of interest. Desired Results We expect our educational activities and CME learners to improve the care delivered by HPMG clinicians in the following ways: 1) develop skilled physician educators and leaders with implementation of meaningful and sustainable practice change, where appropriate; 2) Improve process of care by increasing medical knowledge and competence in ability to apply knowledge, skills and judgment; 3) practice effective and compassionate physician-patient communication; and 4) optimize health outcomes and increase consistency of care delivery across
Completing a pharmacy residency will provide me the skills necessary for improving patient outcomes and achieving my personal career goals. In order to specialize in the field of pharmacy, additional training under experienced practitioners is vital to gaining knowledge. Completing a pharmacy residency will offer a broad spectrum of exposure, thereby enhancing my ability to care for a wide variety of patients including both adults and pediatrics. This range of knowledge will additionally aid in becoming board certified and allow me to provide optimal patient care. Additionally, completing a residency will ensure that I continue to conduct research and provide the chance to precept pharmacy students by acquiring a teaching certificate.
500 Nations 500 Nations is a documentary about early North America and its original inhabitants. It tell the story of who these ancient people were, how they lived and what happened to them. I realized during Kevin Costner's introduction, that I too had very little knowledge of America before 1492, the year Christopher Columbus arrived in this land. I had never really given this much thought until now and I am curious to hear the true story of these people. When I hear the word Indians or Native Americans my head conjures up images of red skinned men and women in full headdress, chanting and dancing around a fire or a circle of people inside a teepee, smoking the peace pipe and listening to the chief tell stories passed down through generations.
Professionalism is the behavior, attitude, and image a member of a profession must maintain to appropriately reflect the values and goals of a given profession. It is important for students in a doctor of physical therapy program to maintain a high level of professionalism. Students are representing both the program they are enrolled in as well as the physical therapy profession. Professionalism is important in both the academic and clinical setting. In the academic setting professionalism reduces distractions and supports quality of a learning environment.
