Everyone experiences anxiety at one point in their lives. In fact, anxiety can even protect and help us. Just the right amount of anxiety keeps us focused and working hard when taking a test, and keeps us away from obvious dangers. But when we experience high levels of anxiety, we view nonthreatening events as dangerous, and that fear can make life more difficult. All children experience some anxiety, which can be developmentally appropriate.
There is a mild and severe condition of Angelman Syndrome. This disorder can cause severe mental retardation, lack of muscle strength, seizures, learning disabilities, and some none stop smiling. Imagine a child who just stares and smile even when they are sad. This syndrome is caused by a deletion of chromosomes 15, however AS can be inherited through genes. (Charles Williams, 2015) Due to its rareness research is still being gathered.
Parents, teachers and even doctors need to be better educated in knowing what to look for and how to prevent prescription drug abuse. Parents need to be taught that their medication is not safe in a medicine cabinet where kids can get a hold of it. They need to be taught safe storage and the proper way to dispose of medication especially controlled substances.7 There is an ad campaign out right now that I saw on TV today educating parents about the medications in their house and how dangerous it could be for an adolescent who is looking for meds. Doctors also need to be knowledgeable when it comes to prescribing medication. As stated above in my example, they need to be trained when pain medicine is warranted and when it is not.
The journal relates to several Pediatric Clinical Objectives. One objective the journal demonstrates is: applies knowledge of human development in providing nursing care for pediatric patients and their families. Rett syndrome is a neurodevelopment disease. It alters the developmental aspect of a child. Through Briggs journal, she explains how we should approach Rett syndrome differently and how the family can be involved.
In my third article, “10 Tactics for Dealing with Tantrums in the Classroom” (Brooks) 2015, State that “Tantrums help children to work through their feeling and release stress and anxiety and “Most adults have unrealistic expectations of how children should behave and that’s what causes things to become problematic” (Khan, Brooks). With my second article define challenging behaviors “any repeated pattern of behavior in young children, or perception of behavior that infers with optimal learning or engagement in prosocial interactions with peers and adults” Smith and Fox (2003). As I examine both statements, I tend to agree with Smith and Fox children need learn how to control their feeling. As children get in the school setting not only does
The article “Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: The Implications for Early Childhood Educators” by Kimberli B. Andrews explores the world of the symptoms of ADHD and how difficult it is for teachers of young children to approach the possibility of a child having it because of the crowded liveliness of an early childhood classroom. The symptoms of ADHD are very common and can be mistaken with any young child 's actions that doesn’t have ADHD in a classroom that is always functioning at a constant speed. Since it is harder for a teacher to observe and know right away if the child has an issue, it is very tough for teachers to assume a child has ADHD and whether or not to take the next step of involving parents and school officials to
As one of the children from around the world that was once a victim of spanking and as a science major and hopefully a future doctor, I must say that I am torn on the topic of spanking. My research has led me to different opinions on spanking, it has taught me the good use of spanking in child’s discipline which many adults have tried to convince me of several times. My research also showed me how spanking can lead to the destruction of a child by damaging a child’s brain and making them prone to mental diseases and lowering their intelligence and memory. It also showed me how spanking can lead to physical abuse and bad behaviors. Combined with personal experience, my research made me see that not all spanking is necessarily bad for children.
toddler abuse and forget are severe issues that can have lasting harmful outcomes on its victims. The aim in preventing infant abuse and neglect is clear—to forestall this violence from happening inside the first location. safe, strong, nurturing relationships and environments for all youngsters and households can prevent abuse and help all youngsters attain their full ability. (cdc.gov/vice president). One supply identifies the problem: “infant maltreatment is a main motive of early life serious accidents and fatalities” (CYS).
Thus, assessment strategies are a continuous and integral part of the study. They are used to identify and target problems for intervention, to match the hypnosis sessions to the patient’s needs and to evaluate the effectiveness of ongoing sessions. The assessment of children’s pain is especially problematic as younger children or those with developmental delays often do not have the language or cognitive sophistication
The understanding of death varies by chronological age, personality, family situations, and developmental ages. Child life specialists (CLS) play a vital role when a family finds themselves dealing with end-of-life care for a child. CLS provide education, emotional support, preparation, and advocacy to both the patient and the family. CLS provide play-based psychosocial interventions to patients and their families in order to minimize stress in the hospital environment. It is important that students emerging into the child life field are knowledgeable on end-of-life situations and are able to provide the best psychosocial care to children and families while minimizing their stress during these difficult times.
An alternative to medication has been focusing in on the behavior by training the cognitive working memory (van Dongen-Boomsma, 2014). It is also important to question the children to really understand how ADHD affects their daily lives. The researchers asked about their physical and emotional health within the diagnosis. Many children were interviewed about their experiences with ADHD. The article really focuses in on the children and not just the parents and doctors of the children (Brady, 2014).
Smith’s second diagnostic code 305.00, which indicates she is diagnosed with Mild Alcohol Use in DSM-5 (American Psychiatric Association, 2013) or Alcohol Abuse in DSM-IV-TR (4th ed., text rev. ; DSM–IV–TR; American Psychiatric Association, 2000). Since the dilemma was not clear on mine and my supervisor’s areas of competence, I would have to look into our competencies before treating clients with clinical addiction and substance abuse disorders. According to the BCACC codes of ethics (2014) the RCC will “limit practice and supervision to areas of competence in which proficiency has been gained through education, training, or experience” (p. 6). Therefore my supervisor and I would have to determine whether we are competent to counsel Ms.
The entire idea of bipolar disorder in children and ways to diagnose and treat it needs to be research and helped because the over medication of children should not be a solution to the problem. Children are rambunctious and everyone is different which does lead to a lot of the misdiagnosis that there are today, however as the years pass and the more common this problem seems to present itself, the more research that is being done. This will bring us closer to where we need to be in this
In additional to the original threaded discussion, level one codes are based on the documentation used for CPT. The Healthcare portability and protection act (HIPPA) of 1996, mandated that all claims be reported using HCPCS. HIPAA made HCPCS codes mandatory for billing and coding. It is also very important that every claim and any medical information is done through and acted by HIPPA regulation to ensure the patients privacy. When a patient first visit a medical facility a copy of the notice of privacy must be provided to the patient, this will explain how to exercise his or her rights under HIPAA.
Each veteran will be administered a new VA identification card that has “bar-lines” for scanning purposes. When a veteran’s medication is administered, the nurse scans the veteran’s card, in addition to scanning the medication that is to be administered. The veterans are asked their full name and last four of their social security number, however with the scanning of their cards, it provides the additional security when confirming their allergies, age, weight, and gender. The study will use a monitoring system that is used by the VA’s called Surveillance of adverse drug events (ADEs). This system is used for reporting observed and new ADEs at the VA (VA, 2014).
