I will summarize each outcome for the Nursing Informatics specialty. For the intent of this paper I will use outcome and competency interchangeably. The first outcome means the ability to gather healthcare information across the continuum of care; combine and utilize the information gathered to develop a process. Finally execution of that process to evaluate its ability to improve the quality of the healthcare environment. Healthcare managers are constantly assessing patients and collecting information.
These consents need to be signed by the patient and the surgeon. These are mentioned as reminders during this time as well because they are always audited by CMS and UNOS. The transplant surgical physician assistants present the data: the depth of subcutaneous tissue, surgical complications during surgery, wound vac placement, readmits, induction therapy, cold ischemia time of the donor, pump time on the kidney, KDPI%, initial rejection, treatment of the initial rejection, hospital course, and date of discharge. The inpatient coordinator communicates difficulties with teaching and medication coverage issues. This is an opportunity that the physicians and staff suggest changes of the educational materials to the patient and transplant clinic.
NEUROSURGEON EXPERT WITNESS A neurosurgeon is a medical specialist trained to treat conditions of the brain, spine, and peripheral nerves. Neurosurgeons provide both non-operative and surgical treatment to patients of all ages. In many cases they find themselves working alongside other medical professionals such as psychiatrists, neurologists and therapists in order to provide more thorough care for patients with neurologic disorders. Neurosurgery can refer to operations on the brain, spinal cord, or other cerebrovascular systems. Because of this, neurosurgeons can choose to specialize in specific types of spinal problems, such as cervical (neck) and lumbar (low back) disorders, and spinal cord injury.
Ultrasound technicians may work and consult with everyone from janitors and other medical staff to medical assistants, nurses, physicians and radiologists. A medical assistant, or the ultrasound tech them self will call the patient back, escort them to a changing room and instruct them on how to be ready, or how to wear a gown for the procedure. The medical assistant will guarantee all pre-exam procedures have been followed correctly. After ensuring the patient is ready for the exam, the medical assistant would then report to the sonographer that patient is ready. Nurses also work closely with ultrasound technicians and patients.
Today’s lecture on the physician assistants (PA) was very informative. Mrs. Hughes spoke on what a physician assistant is, what they do as well as what the requirements are for those who chose the career path. PA’s are individuals whom practice medicine while also being under the supervision of medical doctors or physicians. They can work in all areas of medicine including emergency medicine, surgery and psychiatry which Mrs. Hughes works under. Within this occupation individuals have the ability to prescribe medicine, diagnose and treat mental illnesses, give immunizations as well as perform various other tasks.

Initial Periodontal Therapy helps condition the tissue to respond more predictably to surgical procedures as treatment progresses during later appointments. In this thesis, concepts underlying Periodontal initial Therapy are reviewed and clinical cases of patients who underwent periodontal initial therapy are discussed. Methods and Materials:
This is done through collaboration with human resources capable of actually applying the results of research to the creation and adaptation of prostheses and welfare devices, and each type of specialized professional, such as medical doctors, physiotherapists and occupational therapists. Appropriate prescription, fabrication, instruction, and application of the orthotic and prosthetic devices help persons to engage in activities of daily living as independently as possible. Prosthetists and orthotists are allied health professionals who custom-fabricate and fit prostheses and orthoses. Along with other health care professionals, including nurses, physical therapists, and occupational therapists, prosthestists and orthotists are integral members of the rehabilitation teams responsible for returning patients to productive and meaningful lives. Definitions of disability continue to evolve.
The topic I would like is advanced directives. I have worked in surgical centers and the first question asked before surgery is “do you have and advanced directive?”. I feel that every individual should have an advanced directive because it is vital to providing good healthcare. An advanced directive is a written document which state’s an individual’s wishes so that they can be carried out if they are unable to communicate with their doctor. It is very important to have one because in an emergency situation (ex.
