Approximately 100,000 children die of cancer before the age of 15 in the world every day. According to the Journal of American Medical Association, roughly 80% of children with cancer in high-income countries, such as the United States, survive. With that in mind, we must be thankful for the facilities we have close to home, such as Children’s Mercy Hospital. My mother has worked for Children’s Mercy for nine years, and it has been a huge blessing to hear about all of the wonderful things that Children’s Mercy does for our community. As a result of Children’s Mercy being a not for profit hospital, their funding must come from sources outside of their patients. One of the biggest fundraisers that Children’s Mercy conducts is called The Big
Each year in Cascade County, it is estimated that approximately 500 children enter foster care.

Founded in 1966, the Great Falls Children 's Receiving Home was created to provide temporary and emergency foster care services to children who have been physically removed from their homes due to issues of child abuse and neglect. The GFCRH works closely with the Department of Family Services.
Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital opened its facility in 1962. The hospital's mission is to “advance cures and means of prevention for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment”. This hospital is very unique in the fact that no family is ever turned away from services for inability to pay. No family ever receives a bill from St. Jude.
Kids Path provides specialized care from infancy through eighteen years of age. Being one of the few organizations in the U.S that provide hospice services to children they currently have over 50 patients. While the Kids Path building is not a place for the kids to live such as the Beacon Place, they do provide many activities within the building to provide help and support to children and their families. The goal of Kids Path is to allow children to live a life of normalcy. They can provide hospice services to children within their home, just as they do with adults and receive all the same services with the multidisciplinary team.
A neonatologist is a doctor involved in treating and caring for high-risk infants. They work with premature infants, or those born prior to thirty-seven weeks of pregnancy, to infants with birth defects. They also help and work with the prenatal care of high-risk infants. Neonatology fits in the health sciences pathway. A neonatologist creates a medical treatment plan, provides assistance during delivery, provides medical treatment, and ensures proper medication and care.
In response to these national trends as well as the local shortage of qualified pediatric mental health professionals, The Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at The Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center (HMC), in collaboration with the Department of Pediatrics, developed a Pediatric Psychiatry Collaborative Care. Proved feedback from this project will enable us to identify areas for improvement of the collaborative clinic model, introduce new screening tool if indicated and adjust the model to better fit the need of
Introduction: I chose to interview a pediatric occupational therapist as this is a field I am interested in going into. The interview was held over zoom on February 15th at 2:00pm. For this interview, I spoke with Dr. Herban, a licensed pediatric occupational therapist with over 17 years of experience in the field. Dr. Herban received her degree in Occupational Therapy from Boston University in 2001 and has worked in a variety of clinical settings, including hospitals, schools, and private practices.

Career Research Paper Hello today I will be talking about my career. Pediatrician are responsible for being a pediatrician will be taking care of newborn, and young adults that are their main task. I found my passion for becoming a pediatrician when we take my brother to the doctor so they check him if he’s sick or something else, I saw how they heard his heart looked at him to see what was wrong with him. Also, a pediatrician is not only an extremely important job, but a career that demands a wide variety of skills, and a lot of patience.
Chapter 5: Communicating with Children, Adolescents, and Caregivers Communication with pediatric patients is unique from communicating with adult patients in that the developmental state of the child must be considered. Proper education of both the parent and child can help to increase medication safety, adherence, outcomes, and overall satisfaction with the healthcare that they receive. Some studies have indicated that pharmacists only educate children on their medications 20-30% of the time. This may partially be due to lack of knowledge on how to properly counsel pediatric patients and involve them in conversations about their own healthcare.
We would accomplish this vision by expressing the values of humility, patience, love, and grace with every patient encounter. I strongly believe that one of the keys to building strong public support for Mercy is that the communities we serve understand we will work tirelessly to see the health of its inhabitants flourish. The second aspect I see as pivotal to building strong public support is to have a significant presence in the communities we serve. Whether that be in the local schools or churches or partnering with other vital non-profit organizations.
The acquisitive Spanish explorer of the New World wanted to get as much of the gold and silver from the New World as possible. Kate arrogated herself to take on the duties of the team captain of her swim even though it was Mara’s job. Although she has her Masters degree in English, her banal speech left me with the impression she hadn’t left elementary school.
I have enjoyed reading your post, Brooke. I found your comment on how evidence based practice is applied in your pediatric practice to be informative and educational. I like how you have briefly explained the importance of nursing structure, process, and outcomes to an ideal work environment and to an optimal health care delivery. Therefore, these three elements are very essential to delivering an optimal nursing care. These elements may also be linked to the nurses’ working environment.
The journal relates to several Pediatric Clinical Objectives.

Unfortunately, cancer is still the second leading cause of death in children. Cancers in children are sometimes difficult to detect due to everyday injuries like bruises and bumps or common illnesses which can disguise signs of cancer. While cancers in children are uncommon, it is important to have your
