Introduction The field of healthcare involves decision-making in every sphere of its life cycle. Decision-making can pose a challenge in cases where there is less or negligible domain-specific knowledge. Although there exists ample amount of understanding of the way the healthcare domain works, it has its share of uncertainties and complex situations that call for an explicit understanding of the relation between various occurrences of events, likely causes and effects that govern the domain. In such cases, experience plays a crucial role in assisting the decision-making process, and one such approach to medical reasoning is the Case-based reasoning (CBR) approach, that uses previous experiences to solve new problems. This approach relies on
The case library has cases covering a broad range of ideas across different industries and business functions. Each case contains a description of the underlying competitive situation, the environmental conditions, management priorities, experience, values that allow a certain strategy to succeed, and moments of learning. A software system helps index each case such a way that a search yields modest number of similar cases. The system can provide a complete explanation if the reasoning that has led to each recommendation. If there is no case that exactly matches the given situation, then it selects the most similar case.
STEPS DEFINITION APPLICATION Step One: Create a General or Specific (PICO) Clinical Question The clinical question is critical for a well-guided research that can be conducted to gather data or information that is efficient, and time-bound. As much as possible, the clinical question must be specific, characterized by the PICO components. ‘P’ stands for the target population and its characteristics to be considered, ‘I’ refers to the intervention program, approach, method or technique which will be focused on for further research, ‘C’ represents the different groups for contrast of the research, and ‘O’ stands for the outcomes and its assessment using standardized measure methods. It can be applied in determining the patient’s problem,
APN Role and Leadership Competencies Julliet A. Thomas Grantham University Abstract There are many different aspects of Advance Practice Nursing (APN) make that make the nursing profession unique and valuable. The competencies that comprise each advanced practice nursing discipline are vital in creating a solid foundation for clinical nursing. They prepare you to conquer challenges in the clinical setting and cultivate innovation to establish processes for clinical practice. Advance Practice Nursing is recognized as 4 nursing roles: Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM), the Certified Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) the Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) and the Nurse Practitioner (NP). While the main focus of APNs is clinical practice and direct patient care,
The datasets are here defined in the form of specific body component or organ on which the disease identification and diagnose identification can be done. The medical aided screening and analysis can be applied to perform the disease identification. According to the extracted image and image format, the algorithmic approach can be applied over the image. This kind of disease identification requires a complete controlled and evaluation process so that the identification
1.2 THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK. To clarify our understanding of this research, the researcher has chosen to relate it to Gordon Marjory functional pattern to provide a more comprehensive nursing assessment of the patient. GORDON MARJORY FUNCTIONAL HEALTH PATTERN MODEL 1994. Marjory observed that functional health pattern evolved from client- environment interactions. Each pattern is an expression of biopsychosocial integration which can be influenced by biological, developmental, cultural, social and religious factors.
In the following assignment, there is going to be a mention of what evidence based-practice is, and how it is important to the nursing professional along with its importance in clinical skills. Within the main part of the assignment, will be six annotated bibliographies about blood pressure within field of nursing, which is Learning Disabilities. Which will be concluded a summary of what the main content is and key message that it is given along with talking about the relevance of the content to health care practice and Learning Disabilities Nursing. Evidence based practice has achieved many changes to the nursing education, policies and research through time. Ciliska (2006) explains that every nurse should understand what evidence based practice is.
The Healthcare Knowledge Worker Name Institution The Healthcare Knowledge Worker Introduction Healthcare informatics is the study that deals with the data and processes of communication as well as the systems in healthcare. This branch of science gives room for fresh electronic technology as well as information systems where the practitioners can easily access data preserved in computer systems. The study aims at knowing the primary nature of information and communication processes in the healthcare. It also focuses on providing a description for the principles that mold these processes. The aim of this essay is to discuss the tasks of healthcare in relationship to application of health information technologies to enhance safe
Nursing research is providing evidence used to support nursing practices, generate new knowledge, and promote evidenced-based nursing practice, ensure credibility of nursing profession, provide accountability for nursing practice and document effectiveness of nursing care. Nursing research also focuses on the understanding and relieving of the symptoms
statistics /data collected via medical/ healthcare records are indispensable to creating a health history on clients who offer biologic samples for the determinations of front-line disease forecast research. Nurse detectives / investigators employed to work across diverse client populations targeting to forecast disease, thwart disease, or promote health are expected to request answers to questions that necessitate data from Hospitals or facility medical
There is a need to complete the implementation of EHRs as part of the meaningful use. Clinician Informaticians are needed to help this transition. Clinician Informatician is an individual, physician or a nurse who has more expertise in the field of informatics and is the person to go to with questions. They integrate their knowledge and understanding of science of their clinical specialty with their knowledge of informatics. The integration of these two disciplines Clinical and Informatics, helps informaticians to provide the best quality care by integrating people with systems, processes and information technology.
A summary of this paper is that of the central line and the peripherally inserted central catheter line. They are both catheters and the both are inserted into an artery going straight to your heart. How these two lines differ are in the periods that they can be left in. This paper will also outline the risks of initiating and having one of these put in, and also the instructions on how to initiate one to begin with. The intention of this paper is to explain the uses of, and differences between PICC lines and Central lines, as they do apply to the patients in today’s ever expanding medical practices.
Together, the two systems were devised to establish a means to extend intensivist expertise to a greater number of ICU patients and potentially maximize both effectiveness and efficiency of critical care treatment. The eICU program comprises of a suite of information technology tools that monitor and support the remote team and the on-site team. The core information system collects data from various sources and reorganizes it to optimize data presentation and facilitate physician work flow. Computer-based algorithms provide patient-specific assistance. An early warning system that provides timely alerts designed to ensure that appropriate actions are initiated as soon as problems begin to develop.
By implementing CQI, I will form a team that can help me to identify problems and challenges towards achieving effective and result oriented healthcare. This quality improvement team will be responsible for implementing, documenting, monitoring and evaluating the improvement plan. Responsibilities are then assigned to the members of this team. Then I will delineate scope of care and service, and one method of doing this is to identify the organizations key governance, managerial, clinical, and support functions. All departments and services should be made to contribute to this delineation of key functions.
