1 This paper will be discussing the journal article “Incidence of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) After Myocardial Infarction (MI) and predictors of PTSD Symptoms Post MI- A Brief Report” by Leila P. Rocha, Mary E. Charlson, Janey C. Peterson, Nimali Jayasinghe, Barnett Meyers, Martha L. Bruce, Carla Boutin-Foster. This journal article was published in the International Journal of Psychiatry in Medicine. The journal published the article in 2008 (Leila P. Rocha, et al., 2008). Myocardial Infarction (MI) is the name that is used by doctors and members of other medical professions as professional jargon for the term heart attack. What happens during a myocardial infarction is that the muscle that surrounds the heart (known as myocardium) losses its access to the blood supply.

The hypothesis was “a state-wide ED based telepsychiatry program would result in better rates of outpatient follow-up and reduced inpatient service use and cost” (Narasimhan, M., Druss, B. G., Hockenberry, J. M., Royer, J., Weiss, P., Glick, G., Magill, J. 2015). The study addresses the problems the Emergency Department faces with patients seeking mental health services. ASSIGNMENT FIVE, SUMMARY OF THREE ARTICLES 5 Eighteen hospitals participated in the study. The study provided 24/7 coverage with full time and part time telepsychiatrists.
Today, health disparities among minority populations is a growing phenomenon that can be prevented with extensive research. A health disparity is a disease that differs greatly in occurrence among different populations. The focus in this critique will be on health disparities among minority populations in the United States, since little nursing research has been done in this area. The more research conducted on health disparities among minorities could improve the gap that exists between minority groups and prevalence of certain diseases. The two articles I chose to critique are Gaskin et al.
Participants also reported that key reasons given by participants for their psychiatric hospitalization were congruent with self-transcendence issues significant in later adulthood (e.g. physical health concerns, relationships with adult children, questions about life and death) (Reed, 1989). In the third study, Reed explored patterns of self-transcendence and mental health in 55 older adults (Reed, 1991). In this study, self-transcendence was measured through the newly developed Self-Transcendence Scale (STS). The score was correlated inversely with Langner Scale of Mental Health Symptomatology scores (Reed, 1991).
Looking at statistics from national and governmental drug agencies will assist with the efforts of viewing current drug policy. Preliminary research has led to the realization that there is still no agreed upon conclusion to the statistics brought forth by the Portugal study. With deaths from overdose dropping in Portugal from 80 in 2001 to 20 in 2012, some decriminalization proponents, like Glenn Greenwald (2009), interpret the case as having a sizeable change on health and economics surrounding drugs; others, like Hannah Luqueur, say that the decriminalization did not trigger any dramatic changes (Laqueur, 2014, p. 746). Either way, billions of people’s tax dollars are spent on a policy that produces lackluster results while the more desireable decriminalization model sits on the sidelines. References Greenwald, G. (2009).
In my opinion, diversity in the workforce will make health care more accessible, but will not improve better health care delivery alone. In 2012, people of color made up 36 percent of the workforce, but in comparison only 4 percent are CEO 's of business and 22 percent own businesses (Braveman, Cubbin, Egerter, Williams, & Pamuk, 2010). In addition to the numbers above, 52 percent of employers offer a high-deductible health plan, which has substantial out-of-pocket costs (Murphy, 2016). In turn, this means that while health care is available, only those that can afford the large out-of-pocket expenses will use it. I believe that education is the key to leading a healthier lifestyle but there are several other factors as well.
