I did review her ECHO report that she had not heard from and we are very pleased with the normal ejection fraction. We also discussed her foot. I will try to get her an orthopaedic surgeon here at UT who may be willing to look at her foot while she is pregnant. I did order a left foot x-ray in the event that this may help them make decisions and we will get her a referral here at UT for an orthopaedic surgeon. She is otherwise scheduled to return in 4 weeks in our office for ongoing evaluation of fetal growth due to a history of postpartum pericardium cardiomyopathy.
The personal statement connects qualities of my current practice as a Registered Nurse to the proficiencies of a Family Nurse Practitioner. I describe my learning habits and how the plan of study that Ball State offers coincides with my current work life.

On Friday January 12, 2018 I was privileged to observe with Kathy Schwartz, PT at Warm Springs Outpatient Physical Therapy Center off Sonterra Blvd in San Antonio, TX. I began my visit at 8:30 am where I was introduced to all the staff and oriented to the facility. Following this, I received a brief background on the patients I would be seeing during my visit. Which included: two patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD), one patient with complex regional pain syndrome and one patient with a total hip replacement. The first patient I encountered at 9:15 am was a 65-year-old female presenting with balance and gait disturbances.
The Journey: Parkinson 's Disease In the article titled “The Journey: Parkinson 's Disease” written by authors Mary G. Baker and Lizzie Graham, they describe the disease as a journey taken by the patients effected by the disease. For example, every journey taken needs some type of map or guidance to use and assist you throughout your journey. The map in this scenario is the useful information given by a healthcare provider to help them step by step in the process of their “journey”. The article explains that every map has a beginning and end of course. The beginning is different for all Parkinson’s patients, the average age of people diagnosed with this disorder is around 65 years of age.
Army Acting Assistant Surgeon on General Rufus Saxton's staff, and Esther became a teacher of freedmen, both civilian and military, with the National Freedmen's Relief Association. It is at this point that Esther's diary begins. Gerald Schwartz has divided this book into three major parts the foreword in which the Hawks's early lives are sketched; the diary, from three composition books which were salvaged from trash in 1975 (Schwartz thinks there is a fourth diary volume, but it has not turned up) and covering the period from October 1862 to November 1866; and an afterword in which he describes Esther's and Milton's respective careers in medicine, business, and reform from the end of the diary until their deaths in the early 1900s. The editor has carefully footnoted all three parts. The entries in the diary cover Esther Hawks's several teaching and administrative assignments—her medical practice was very limited in the Sea Islands, including Hilton Head Island, Florida mainly Jacksonville, and Charleston, South Carolina.
For this discussion I chose a topic related to work. I am a nurse and a Director of Nursing at a rehab facility. One of my jobs is to look at RTH or return to hospital within 30 days for our patients. The one correlation that I have found while doing my research and looking at each patient that returned to the hospital was that the patient is followed by and MD that only has a mid-level in house 2 days a week was higher than the MD that had a midlevel provided in house 5 days a week. A mid- level provider is someone such as a PA (physician assistant) or a NP (nurse practitioner) We have an MD who is the medical director and he has a midlevel PA assigned to our facility 5 days a week.
Module 1 - Critical assignment Throughout this essay the author will explore the possible impacts of leadership upon patient experience based on a recent patient observation untaken on the 18th December 2017 at the Eye Care Clinic: an outpatient department within Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth. This clinical service was chosen as it deals with a diverse selection of Portsmouth’s population and was recently highlighted, by the trust, to need feedback due to recent friends and family questionnaire feedback. The area chosen for the observation was a section of the clinic which included a waiting room (between 20-25 chairs) and 5 clinic rooms. The observation was undertaken by two Observer One (the author) and Observer Two (an ex clinician
The average age of former patients was 39,3 ± 14,7 years, and the average age of new patients was 41,02 ± 17,6 years. 41% of former patients was female and 59% of them was male, and 37% of new patients was female and 63% of them was male. 83% of former patients was paraplegic and 17% of them was tetraplegic, and 76% of new patients was paraplegic and 24% of them was tetraplegic, were detected respectively. The most common etiological factors in former patients were found to be 34% falls from a height, 25% traffic accidents, 14% gunshot wounds, 6% iatrogenic factors, and the most common etiological factors for new patients were determined as 31% falls from a height, 17% traffic accidents, 11% gunshot wounds, 12% iatrogenic factors. 51% of former patients was admitted to the first time in rehabilitation, and this rate was 46% in new patients.
This essay is going to reflect on my own management and leadership style in delivering patient care. It will discuss the effectiveness of the other leadership and management style within the multi-disciplinary team and its impact on delivering patient care. I will use as an example, my previous experience back home as a nurse and compare it to my current experience in the United Kingdom (UK). This will show my strength and weakness as well as my new learning skills, which have changed my practice. I will be using Driscoll model of reflection (2007) to guide my thought and refine my ideas.
It is applicable to all individuals who are unable to meet their self-care needs effectively and require nursing care (George, 2014). The applicability of Orem’s theory’s in various disciplines has been tested and illustrated in journals such as effect of Orem self-care program on the life quality on burn patients by Hashemi et al (2014) and application of Dorothea Orem's theory of Self-Care to the elderly patient on peritoneal dialysis by O'Shaughnessy (2014). The Orem’s theory directs nursing interventions that yields favourable and positive outcomes for the patients. The different nursing systems allow patients to be assessed and necessary interventions to be applied, allowing the individual’s health to be restored to meet the
