(i.e., the minimum acceptable level of performance) The goal is to have an improvement in all three areas. 1) A balance between the cost of providing wound care in the primary care setting by a NP and the reimbursement. 2) An improvement in self-efficacy scores from baseline to after the wound care workshop. Goal for an improvement in the Likert score of > 1 point per question asked, post workshop.
Social determinants of health depend on social, environmental and economic conditions in societies (EuroHealthNet, n.d.). These factors and conditions, together with the age, sex and hereditary factors of a person, are interlinked and influence the health status of the individual, because a person is born, grows, lives, works and ages in these conditions (Equity Action, 2010). The living and working conditions include agriculture and food production, education, work and environment, unemployment, water and sanitation, health care services and housing (Marmot, Health inequalities in the EU, 2013, p. 40). In addition, it is clear that equal access to good health is hard to achieve, and it can be done so, if disadvantages are assessed, and that necessary measures should be taken (Stegeman, Costongs, & Needle,
Summary of Problem and Legislation One of the health care issues in today's health care system is inequities. Starfield (2011) wrote that there are two types of inequities: horizontal and vertical. Horizontal inequity indicates that people with the same needs are unable to access the same resources (Starfield, 2011). On the other hand, vertical inequity exists when “people with greater needs are not provided with greater resources” (Starfield, 2011). Eliminating inequities is the fundamental challenge in achieving the best of care given to patients.
According to Wasson et al (1984), gatekeeping shows reductions in hospitalisations. This claim is proven effective through a study done by the (Scandinavian Health Publication 2011) of determining whether gatekeeping can slow down hospitalisation rates. The study was positive in which gatekeeping in fact does reduce hospitalisation rates. The study was conducted in several ways (percentage of patients with at least one inpatient episode in the observation period). The number of hospitalisations per 1000 patients, number of hospital days per 1000 persons.
Introduction Disparities in health are an inequality that occurs in the provision of healthcare and its accessibility across different dimensions including location, gender, ethnicity, age, disability status, citizenship status and socioeconomic group (Ubri & Artiga, 2016; Wallerstein & Durran, 2006). According to the health Resources and Service Administration of United States, health disparities are defined by population specific differences in the presence of disease, health outcomes and the accessibility to healthcare. Urbi and Artiga (2016) indicates that disparities in healthcare provision not only bring impacts to the group facing disparities, but also limit overall improvements in quality of care and population health as well as resulting
Kaiser Family Foundation (2012), health and health care despairs refer to differences in the health and health care between population groups. The health disparity generally refers to a higher burden of illness, injury, disability, or mortality experienced by one population group relative to another. A health care disparity typically refers to the differences between groups in health coverage, access to care, and quality of care. While disparities are commonly viewed through the lens of race and ethnicity, they occur across many dimensions, including socioeconomic status, age, location, gender, disability status, and sexual orientation (HKFF,
Healthcare disparity can be explained as the gap created in the delivery of healthcare to communities which causes some communities to receive better healthcare than others. Some factors that can cause these disparities include race, socioeconomic status, location, and gender. Because of health care disparities, there are a lot of patients who are and will be at risk for many diseases such as diabetes, obesity and hypertension. These disparities negatively affect the overall cost of delivering quality healthcare and are issues that must be addressed by the people who know them best, the health care workers. Through the NURSE Corps Program I hope to help address these imbalances in underserved communities in various ways.
As of this time, we have addressed the issues of disparities in healthcare that have been lingering amongst us for a few centuries. We have also touched on the topic of competencies in the healthcare system as well. In life the will always be something with an issue, now, let’s discuss the solutions. First, let’s just do a quick recap of the ‘issues’ we are addressing that are the reasons we are discussing a few solutions. The first, issue was the healthcare disparities, as you should remember disparities in healthcare mean that there are many distinct correlations between the lack of healthcare and certain ethnic and racial minorities.
Value expectancy model The expectancy is considered as a general concept in psychology, however, conversely in the health literature it is assumed as it is in the real world. In psychology, expectancy theory posits that satisfaction is expressed by a difference between what one received and expected or wanted to receive. However, expectations are made of “cognitive processes” and shaped by “previous experiences”, so it is dynamic, complex beliefs (Bowling et al., 2012). Linder-Pelz theory, value-expectancy model, is based on social-psychological theory as they proposed five social-psychological variables, “occurrences”, “value”, ”expectations”, ”interpersonal comparisons”, and ”entitlement” as determinants of patient satisfaction to explain
Introduction There is a rising concern on the topic of health inequalities, which refers to the differences in health status or in the distribution of health determinants between different population groups (World Health Organization, n.d.). Differences in mobility and mortality can be caused by different determines such as gender role, social classes, age, etc. This article will focus on how gender roles and social classes affect one’s health and how they contribute to health inequality as well as reasons for healthcare professionals to be sensitive on this topic. Analysis First and foremost, there factors affect health which is the state of complete physical, social and mental well-being instead of just the absence of disease (World Health Organization, n.d.).
Elijah Mascorro Livesey English 101 24 April 2017 Poverty and Medical Treatment There is no fundamental relationship between poverty and medical treatment from the look of an average person. In fact, the two factors of life might be way different from each other except for the simple fact that they both relate to human life in one way or another. As poverty concerns the status of life or the living conditions of the people, medical treatment might be referred to as the attempts made to improve certain health conditions (Peters et al. 164). However, scientific researchers have found out a mutual respect between poverty and medical treatment.
The Effects of Sepsis Bundle on Mortality Rates: Background and Significance Historians in the medical field such as Hippocrates and Pasture have referenced symptomologies associated with sepsis of today (Angus & Van der Poll, 2013). Sepsis received its official definition of severe sepsis and septic shock in 1992; with terminology being based on the accompanying disease processes present (Angus & Van der Poll, 2013). The definition of severe sepsis indicates the presence of organ dysfunction along with sepsis. Additionally, septic shock is related to the presence of hypotension not responding to fluid resuscitation (Cawcutt, & Peters, 2014). A diagnosis of severe sepsis or sepsis shock has an increased risk of patient mortality, length of stay, and a higher probability of long-term disability (Cawcutt & Peters, 2014; Whittaker, et al. 2015).

This essay explores the relationship of socioeconomic impacts on health in Islington Borough and accumulate data about disparities in the provision of health and social care services. I will also examine government methods in the promotion of health and factors and how barriers affect these health promotion campaigns. Health promotion is the procedure of empowering individuals to build control over, and to enhance, their Health. It moves past an emphasis on individual conduct towards an extensive variety of social and environmental interventions. The Ottawa Charter (1986) defines health promotion as the process of enabling people to increase control over, and to improve their health to reach a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing
