Reflection on Medication Administration Description (Competency 3j) I have looked over my moral development regarding medicine administration and have noticed there is the need for improved and has been agreed with my mentor to write a piece of reflection to identify areas of concern Feelings One of the major concern is the pace of dispensing and the time spent used to open charts and allocate them is one of my weakness. Although I am learner I need to back up the pace of dispensing so that patient doesn 't feel my skills is dull or boring and waste of time. I Had developed that feeling of being extra careful to avoid drug error and that makes me feel slightly nervous more also being under the influence of supervision as well. Evaluation
The author has given a sane person and insane person whose thoughts run wild, yet it keeps the readers intrigued. When the author mentions the outcome of Graham taking the pills, “I used to cast fire from the tips of my fingers... But now I take the pills, I haven’t bankrupted us yet, I don’t want to kill myself.” Deciding to take your medicine is a big step, it is important for controlling illnesses. One of the purposes of a medication’s is take one’s mind focus and on a clear path of pursuing their goals. In addition, medicine keeps your thoughts quiet and brings awareness of one’s harmful thoughts.
I have always thought that in extreme circumstances when the patient can no longer function properly and there quality of life is almost non-existent then I think that euthanasia is the right thing as you ensuring that that person no longer feels any pain. After researching this topic further and looking into personal opinions especially those of doctors I still feel that euthanasia could be considered a mercy killing upon certain circumstances, but I also think that it should be used as a final resort and the main focus should be on improving care for the patients to see if this can cause any improvements. If the area continues this way with the topic gaining more publicity with people coming forward and fighting for their right to die as they please then it is likely that euthanasia will become legal in more countries, then the few where it is already such as Belgium. Although, if more doctors come out against this practise then there is the possibility that control may become stricter in those countries where it has been legalised or it may be made illegal for being
In Frank Furedi’s reading, “Our Unhealthy Obsession with Sickness”, he concludes that the health care crisis which we are going through will not change nor get better. To some extent I agree with Mr. Furedi’s writing. He discusses how in recent times, people in society are normalizing having an illness and are willingly open to talking about them (471). Furedi also mentioned how people now embrace having an illness, rather than noticing their worth before they were sick. I too have noticed that it is becoming increasingly acceptable to the extent that people want something to be wrong with them, which I find extremely odd.
There is an evident contrast between John 's method, and the method used by Dr. Cawley and Dr. Naehring. John believes that in order for his wife to heal she must take drugs, ignore her condition, and resist any urges she may feel, to the point where the suffocation causes her to go mad. The doctors at Ashcliffe on the other hand, "try to heal, try to cure. And if that fails, at least [they] provide them with a measure of comfort in their lives." The method used at Ashcliffe is more effective when it comes to recovery, as many of the patients had enough understanding to take part in the role play, and the treatment successfully penetrated Andrew 's fantasy twice.
But the problems in these developing countries they cope with those problems with drugs and it 's really sad how people in this country don 't realize how addiction is other countries and what it does to people. There will never be time in this world where addiction will be completely gone. But there could be a time in this world where we can help these people with the addiction to save them from torture and hopefully save their
People can not just stop cleaning themselves or thinking of ways they will end of getting germs on them. (Kathleen Smith, 1996-2018). All in all, it is an illness that is not very dangerous, it can get serious if not taken care of when it first comes about in an individual’s life, it can lead to other illnesses, or suicidal thoughts if it does get too far. People are going to get sick and they will come into a counter with germs, but getting a diagnosis, and then finding a cure is always a great start, that way you live a stress-free life. (WebMD LLC,
As can be observed in everyday consumerism, there has been an increase in medicinal remedies for treating various modes of suffering. While these remedies are essential for many of those who suffer from these differing forms of illnesses and injuries, the overuse of pharmacological resources has perhaps changed the mass population’s understanding of how recovery occurs. In other words, turning only to medicinal treatments suggests that these methods are the only cure that we can or should rely on to get better. Rather than entirely depend upon the pharmaceutical business that simply focuses on the absence of wellness, positive psychology offers strategies that allow the suffering individual to become conscious of the good in his or her life so that he or she can then build upon these good life factors. In turn, he or she identifies new strengths and abilities in order to generate practical and progressive solutions for decreasing effects of
For teens, they receive the option of seeking help from a therapist or obtain counsel from a trustworthy person. For elderly people, they receive support from therapy as well as someone they trust, and from the specialist in the hospital. Even Universities and Colleges provide programs for people who are thinking of suicide and helping them out for a change of mind. The best support is not insulting the person who wants to commit suicide to not make it worst for example, “The steps of helping out on the case of Emotional Pain is ask questions, keep them safe and become the best example to them and be there meaning listen carefully to their situation”(National Institute of Mental Health). Perhaps, it builds trust and the person and to comfort them to make them feel important and welcomed.
• Physicians are to influence and lead their patients by example. • Illness, discomfort, pain, and the dying process are learning opportunities for both the patient and the physician. It cannot be avoided and should be taken in stride instead to learn more about one’s whole being and life approach. • Physicians and experts are supposed to encourage their patients to evoke the healing power of love, hope, humor, and enthusiasm to release the toxic consequences of hostility, shame, greed, depression, and prolonged fear, anger, and grief. • Optimal health is more than the absence of sickness.
After all the time spent suffering from an addiction, it becomes increasing important for addiction victims to select a rehab center that makes sense when they are ready for help. Most rehab centers will put forth claims of how good its treatment programs are compared to other places. Without much else to compare to, reputation becomes a key factor for consideration. With that in mind, it 's worth us noting that many a West Texas Rehab has a solid reputation for excellent treatment and care.

Growing up in today 's society I personally have witnessed much addictions to drugs whether that was through a tv show or in person happening to someone that I know. Many of the main causes for people to use drugs are the same causes that lead people to use soma in the book. The message that is shown through this quote I something that I definitely do not agree with as it is giving people an easy way out of their problems for a short amount of time rather than dealing with them and having them gone forever. The theme of this quote is shown to be through community and common good which is what people think this drug is doing to them is helping them in a way that will make them never feel pain in a way, but what it is really doing to them is hurting them and starting an addiction. The same lessons can be learned from Hamlet as lying to someone about what they have done could come back to hurt someone else in the end which happens in both Hamlet and Brave New World when King Claudius tries to poison Hamlet, but instead poisons his new wife Queen Gertrude.
PROBLEM SOLUTION With patients today using the threat of reporting low satisfaction rates in the hopes of receiving faster or higher quality care, they seem to have taken the upper hand in some of the decision making of what takes place in the healthcare world today (Sullivan). But is it really the survey results that will make the drastic changes that are needed? Instead of questioning whether providers spend enough time with patients, ensuring that the provider gives the patient the option of which medical treatment or drug is best for them, or simply having the patient rate the provider from 0-10, zero being “worst provider possible” to ten being “best provider possible,” (Ganey) patients should simply be asked to leave comments or concerns about their visit. It is understandable and unfortunate that not everyone in the healthcare field can do their job professionally and appropriately, and those people should be reported. But when one does do their job in a timely manner and practices “first do no harm,” that should be respected by the population that they are taking care of and not degraded just because someone thinks the wait time is too
Many claim that DTC advertising can lead to overprescribing medicine. If someone is experience back pain and sees a commercial that claim to relive all back pain, this person might jump to the conclusion that they need this medication. This person might go to his/her doctor and demand this medication to help with their back pain. Most doctors do not have a problem with prescribing medication, because most of the time they have connections with big pharm that helps them bring in big paychecks. Most would argue that if this person did not see this commercial, then they would not be prompt to want medication for the back pain they were already dealing with.
It would be very beneficial for the friends and loved ones to be able to receive treatment because PTSD doesn’t just touch the First Responder. Cost is always a factor in any type of treatment. It would be advantageous for the program to be affordable with some type of payment plan if insurance is not accepted such as scholarships, grants etc. Above all a program needs to help the patient remain anonymous if they wish to be. I chose West Coast Post Trauma Retreat as the best solution to help treat PTSD because it meets all of the criteria to be affective and offers an invaluable array of services.
