This contextual project work is consisting of 10 concepts from the module entitled ‘’ Research and Nursing Research’’ block 3. Each one of the concepts will be described in terms of its meaning, will be critically analyzed for its real life application and will be followed by some reference of the current research evidence. Real life application will explore a possible relationship of the concept with personal, social or professional life.
Electronic Medical Records in hospitals and offices are a great way to have information systems for the data collection. Hospital and medical staff can use the information to report and collect any of the following registration as well as the admissions data. The data was never intended for qualify improvement but to also allow the survey to ensure the compliance with provisions. Even though hospitals play an important role to the health care system and represent the healthcare outlay. They are also the element for collecting reporting to the data language. I feel that methods should be considered when it comes to including the data into current functioning data that flows. That also involves concerns regarding organization and patient privacy.
Healthcare practice is complex in many perspectives from professional to cultural, from physical to mental. All cultures have systems of health beliefs to explain what causes illness, how it can be cured or treated, and who should be involved in the process. The extent to which patients perceive patient education as having cultural relevance for them can have a profound effect on their reception to information provided and their willingness to use it (Euromed info, 2017). Social and cultural differences between patients and providers can potentially post big challenges throughout the course of healthcare service. If not handled properly, it will adversely affect the clinical interaction between healthcare providers, patients and their families.
250 - 255) used ethnography. Ethnography is the systematic study of people and culture, and it carries out broad observation of a group being involved in their activities over a period of time (Brownlow, 2012). Corsaro (1985), is interested in how friendship is described in communication between children, and what it means in certain places at specific times, rather than in a formal interview. In support, he video records them and makes notes of children's activities and their collaborations with others. The researcher needs to become a member of a specific group and spend months and sometimes even years, in order to carry out observations from within the group (Brownlow, 2012). The benefits of this method are that it enables the researcher to observe a direct, first-hand and original account of the child's experience. In addition, the multifaceted and rich data can be generated. On the other hand, it can be hard for an adult to 'blend in'. furthermore, in order to use ethnography, the researcher has to watch and observe from distance for a while to start with and wait until to be approached and invited by children into their social world (Brownlow,
The researcher used an ethnographic approach as a part of her research methodology along with a range of qualitative data collecting techniques with greater emphasis on unstructured interviews.
Evidence base practice can be defined as the integration of clinical experience and skills, patient values and best research evidence into decision making process for patients’ care (Saclett D, 2002)
For the last 3 years I have worked in an acute care hospital, on the night-shift as a nurse in the labor and delivery unit. This is a 16 room labor and delivery bed unit that also houses 4 additional triage bays, a full time nursery, and a fully functional operating room This labor and delivery department runs as a 24hour, 7day a week unit with each nurse having to take at least 16 hours a month of call on days, evenings, or weekends. This is a very fast-paced unit, which carries a heavy load of responsibility and stress. Labor is unpredictable with that you never know what your patient load may be from day to day. This is an area that requires knowledgeable and multi certified/trained nurses that are always on their toes and have the ability to adapt and react to emergencies without hesitation. This department serves for 7 local obstetricians that service numerous obstetric patients. The unit runs off a weekly schedule book that is filled with routine inductions, scheduled c-sections, on top of all the daily triage patients, that can soon turn into labor admissions. The nurses on this unit are
This Research Study is supported in part of a curriculum of Health Information Impact on Clinical Practices for the program “Health Informatics”.
For the purpose of this discussion, I will discuss nursing informatics and clinical informatics, followed by two examples of how clinical informatics is used in my organization. I will explain how a nurse manager uses data management as a strategy to improve patient care on the nursing unit. Lastly, I will explain why President Bush mandated the implementation of the electronic health record by 2014.
Since archaic times the concept of humanity has intrigued scholars. Eventually this curiosity led to the formation of what is now known as Anthropology, the study of humans. In the article “On Ethnographic Sincerity” by John L. Jackson Jr the author discusses how different anthropological perspectives incorporate humor and sincerity to ensure original findings. Another article, “Social Responsibility and the Anthropological Citizen” by Barbara Rose Johnston brings attention to praxis issues while at the same time she puts emphasis on the power of discourse. Both articles politicize the discipline by establishing ethical codes. Despite the ethical dilemmas present in the field, Anthropologists have managed to change policy via ethnographies
In ‘Institutional Ethnography…’ by Janet M. Rankin and Marie Campbell, an analysis is completed on the institutional ethnography of nurses’ work in Canadian hospitals. Health care policymakers and administrators are currently implementing an updated system that will promote the efficient use of resources and delivery of care. However, the analysis finds that the organization of efficiency competes with the nurses’ professional judgment while standardizing nurses’ decision making process, delivery of care, and knowledge.
We all think of medical physicians and nurses whenever we feel the onset of the slightest cold, but there is another group of professionals that provide us with the medication we need: pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. The main role of a pharmacist is to dispense medication to their patients according to the prescription given. Before this, they must ensure that they dispense the right drugs and make sure the strength and dosage of the medicine are appropriate, as well as ensuring the medication is safe. Pharmacists give advice to their patients in assuring the appropriate use of medications. It is important to tell the patient the name of the drug, what the drug is used for, when to take the drug, how many times per day to take the drug, whether the drug should be taken before meals, the method of taking the drug, and its side effects.
Ethnography has a diverse history , it started off as a by-product of anthropology and eventually developed as its own research method. Definition of anthropology. Bronislaw Malinowski started off his career in antopology and
the context or story related to the object regarding its identity with respect to the site it has
In this summary, I would draw 3 main points of the article. First, the overview of the qualitative research which covers its definition and purposes. Second, I would describe concisely about the common methods or techniques respectively of the qualitative research, and thirdly, I would uncover the pros and cons of each of the drawn techniques in brief.
