There are of course challenges; a growing population, people living longer, a vast array of new treatments, patients making lifestyle choices now, which affect their health so poorly in the future. Yes, there are cases of demand overcoming capacity inside our health system, and some waits are unacceptably long. But the vast majority of the 17,000 patients who will spend tonight in our hospitals, or the 1,000 patients who have their surgery today, get excellent care – and we are proud of this.

The Clinic is becoming a more global institution raising questions ranging from cost effectiveness to cultural understanding.

Mapleton Family Medicine can be closely compared to countless other family medicine facilities throughout the US, a small family practice establishment struggling to keep up with providing fast but efficient care within a small city. With wanting to raise productivity without hindering patient care, the owners have hypothesized an incentive system plan to move the establishment in the right direction. However, will the plan actually be effective in accomplishing these goals? Based upon the case questions within the experiential exercise, I will work to answer any problems addressed, giving away to a better understanding of the possible obstacles within the development of their incentive system plan.

Outline the process undertaken when searching for credible and relevant evidence to support Part 2 of the workbook. (Justify and support answers with credible and relevant evidence whilst adhering to UWS referencing guidance).

There are many patient safety concerns in today’s healthcare system. One that is not on the forefront, but is still a prevalent and concerning issue, is lack of infection control in outpatient or ambulatory settings. Since there has been a large transition of care from the hospital setting to an ambulatory setting, there is a necessity to improve infection control secondary to patient notifications and outbreaks within the past years1. Ambulatory settings include all outpatient clinics. An example is an ambulatory surgical center ASC), which increased in numbers by 50% from 2001 to 20082.
All had heavy workloads and were under pressure to see more patients and reduce waiting lists. Work satisfaction was primarily derived from their clinical work, but also from fostering a happy team and from teaching. What is the purpose of this study?
