(2009) did not support mindfulness as a treatment for substance use disorders. It may prove helpful in increasing the coping mechanism of patients and to improve their control but not very successful as a treatment. On the contrary, a study by Brewer, J.A., Elwafi, H.M., & Davis, J.H. (2013) states that a new field of modern treatment MT has shown efficacy in treatment of addictions, probably by affecting the craving levels Conclusion From the above mentioned researches we can see that the practice of mindfulness is helpful in many areas of life and it is seen to be effective in reducing stress and strengthening of the coping mechanism of pupils. Further Research More research is needed using standardized sleep scales and methods, with particular attention to the importance of MBSR home practice and affect of mindfulness on physical health of cancer
Literature Review A literature review on the effectiveness of hourly rounding suggested that if implemented correctly many aspects of patient care can be improved. This search also found several limitations and barriers, but still showing that hourly rounding is overall improving patient satisfaction, fall rates, and call light usage. According to Dyck, Thiele, Kebicz, Klassen and Erenberg (2013), fall related injuries are a huge concern for patient care and the main focus of their study. The study looked into focusing on starting hourly rounding for fall prevention. They felt there was a good opportunity to reduce fall and injury rates by initiating hourly rounds.
The care process includes the interaction among doctor, patient and (healthcare) structure, which leads to two distinct processes: technical interventions (use of clinical care) and interpersonal interaction (humanism, sensitivity) among users and healthcare workers (Campbell et al, 2000). Moreover, in the same article the two dimensions of effectiveness are named as the following: clinical dimension and interpersonal care dimension. The service provider should attempt to perform the service in a convenient way, comforting and pleasing, as patients perceive these characteristics as indications of care (Donabedian, 1988). Donabedian (1988) underlined the importance of the relationship between doctor and patient, as patient and doctor can have
For that reason, it must take into account that multifactorial factors interact one another, and respiratory pain has an impact on a variety of aspects on patient's inner life. It stands to reason that not only respiratory pain in itself but also multifactorial influences is hardship for patients. Therefore, we need to have a common view that a feeling of dyspnea is a concept that includes a variety of impacts. It is also very important to visualize the necessity of support that covers them. Future tasks are to organize relevant components which affect a feeling of dyspnea and to develop an assessment tool which visualize latent pain due to dyspnea and a comprehensive support program on a feeling of
The possibility of monitoring chronic illnesses leads to a more organized, structured and predictive way to approach patients, decreasing the need for treatment at general hospitals and cutting adverse drug events. Analyzing big data on healthcare, hospitals and clinics can predict and prevent crises, expand their preventive care offerings, optimizing the admissions and cutting the costs connected to them. Analysis of disease patterns and tracking of disease outbreaks and transmission are fundamental to improve public health surveillance, to have a faster response, to avoid predictable chronic situations reducing the need of hospitals admissions and to cut the costs related to waste of time and
By using this system it eliminates mistakes or errors due to illegibility, dosage and frequency as this system would alert the prescribers for attention. This system also streamlines the whole process of getting the prescription to pharmacy, dispensing and obtain refills. Implementing this system had proven to be cost saving as it improved efficiency and help nurses to have an access for information on the medication fast and easy (Potts, 2004). The time that nurses spend in clarifications had greatly reduced and this allows nurses to focus more on patient’s care. As for private hospital we do practice cost saving and by recommending this system my organization would be able to achieve cost saving as well as incentives and improved efficiency in delivering high quality and safe care for our patients.

It is where “we sense and we infer what is happening with the other person” (Hanson 2007, p. 2), allowing for a constructive and effective doctor-patient relationship to be created. The components of empathy themselves are extensive in the explanation of how health care givers are able to implement empathy into their daily practices. If these components are met, a healthy therapeutic relationship can be established between patients and the doctor and/or nurse. Doctors and nurses are set out to follow a core set of shared aims or purposes in forming an empathetic, therapeutic relationship between themselves and their patient. Including: 1.
For this assignment I am going to discuss the importance of using a person centred care model for older people in particular. According to the Nursing Management article “Person centred care is a term used to describe the therapeutic relationship between the care providers and the service users and between the care providers themselves” (Manley et al., 2008). This model is really important because it allows both parties know how to treat each other. Person Centred Care model represents the older person’s experiences, their values, needs and preferences in the planning, coordination and the delivery of the care given by themselves and the healthcare professionals. These are considered the elements of the model.
Evidence based is been used widely in nursing practice, which involves integration of a problem solving approach within the framework that concerning care, using the best evidence from research, knowledge and proficiency from clinical together with patients’ beliefs and values. Nursing practice does support EBP as researchers had done many studies that showed improved outcomes when the best evidence is implemented of patient’s care. However, researchers had argued that, there are challenges in attaining and maintaining EBP in nursing practice despite the awareness (Mary, et. al. 2013).
Patient demographics, medications, progress notes, vital signs, past medical history, immunizations, problems, radiology and laboratory data are amongst some of the information included in the record. Numerous errors have been eliminated due to the benefits of an Electronic Health Record system. Computerized physician order entry systems, clinical decision support system, and health information exchange have benefitted the implementation of Electronic Health Record systems, by showing reduction in costs and improving quality of care. These are the “meaningful use” criteria requirements set forth in the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act of 2009. First, a clinical decision support system provide assistance to the provider enabling him/her to make decisions.
Ensuring millions of Americans have access to free preventive screening and care will reduce the burden on the health care system in the future. In other words, diseases detected earlier are less costly to the health care system compared to those detected during the later stages. Diseases that are detected during the progressive stage of the illness are more costly to the health care system and the individuals. More importantly, individuals are more likely to recover from a disease that is detected during the early stages which will improve the health and well-being of the US population. In order to achieve the goals established by the ACA, different components were created to ensure a holistic approach to health care and services provided to individuals.
Demonstrate effective use of technology to navigate the electronic health record, communicate with inter/intraprofessional teams, and be involved with decision making in the delivery of quality and safe patient care. (Ivy Tech Community College, 2016). Rationale In nursing, the use of technology is vital in providing high quality of care and complete understanding of the patient. Technology is used in the health care system to chart patient health information, communicate with the interprofessional team, and monitor plan of care. The nurse, upon licensure, recognizes the importance of computer literacy and the effect technology has on patient outcomes.
One opportunity is HIE can improve reporting to public health and in return improve the health of the community. Another opportunity HIE have is that it can improve the communication between physicians and can lower the number of duplicate services and decrease the cost of services. Implementing health information exchange systems can overall help improve care for
