There are various methods to adjust health care services into becoming more approachable for low literacy patients. We shall let our society be aware of the problem and accommodate to the needs of low literacy people in our health care facilities. While communicating we must talk with sensitivity, allow the patients to speak out their opinions, respect their values, goals, and beliefs, and act with acceptance. Often times, while connecting with our patients can have the ability to heal them, but others times it can hurt the patient. We must not make any assumptions about the patients, we overestimate people’s reading levels because we are not in their position and we do not think about how something so “easy” to us can be such a challenge for others.
In order to give quality care for patients, physicians need to have the necessary skills to understand the capabilities of the new technology. In this case, residents would rather have interactions between patient and physician than getting treatment toward EHRs because patients believe that EHRs could be leading to errors and patient safety could be at risk. In this case, the study shows that residents prefer more patient-physician communications after EHRs were implemented inpatient settings. On the other hand, Physicians spend more time on the computer rather than looking at patients in an outpatient environment after adapting to EHRs than a paper-based system. The goal of these studies to understand patient satisfaction between inpatient and outpatient settings while using the EHR system.
Many will attempt to change the patient’s ideals to fit what the physician has determined as being the optimal health plan. However, this does not coincide with being culturally competent. Health care providers must be open to different approaches to the same problem and be willing to investigate all options to come to a conclusion that takes into consideration the patients cultural beliefs (Kodjo,
I believe that even if the hospital leadership are able to understand the climate and culture theory, it would be very difficult for them to translate to nurses, physicians and other professionals who already have a professional and organizational culture they are used to. Consequently, the implementation of creating or improving the climate or culture separately to aid stemming the crisis would be difficult. Although, I believe if it is introduced as trying to create a better organizational climate for the hospital or clinic in general with special focus on opioid addicted patients and organizational culture is treated as a component of the climate it may be easier to deploy and get good response. This is because as discussed/suggested in many of our readings people tend to hold on to culture so resisting change. But I believe people generally want a better climate to work in whatever the culture.
On addition, had to pay the ACCC’s costs. Primary stakeholders: o Health professionals and buyers who have been informing and guiding parents and children on responsible use of the medication would affected the most. The Specific pain case would have resulted in losing trustworthiness and honesty between the health professionals and the patients. The buyers in situation would have lost faith in the company and might prefer choosing another brand. Thus, giving the competitor a way to overtake them.
However, the responsible and trusted caregiver team must take an action through multiple processes in order to favor the patient. Although the physicians have known earlier when the terminally ill patient near to die, they are not comfortable with withdrawing of life-sustaining treatments. The intention is not to kill the patient, but using the available technology and creating a moral obligation to use what ethical principle prescribes. Underlining the disease process cannot be reversed, life-sustaining treatment can be withdrawn acknowledging that the treatment limitation (Reynolds, Coper, & McKneally, 2005). Ethics committee is a helpful source of advice that can provide consultation about ethical issues in treatment limitation.
According to the scenario, St. Jessica 's Urban Medical Center’s previous performance management systems were a failure. However, establishing a better approach may produce a well like system for the employees as well as management. Therefore, St. Jessica’s Urban Medical Center must acknowledge there are many ways to measure and evaluate an employee’s performance to include graphic ratings, self-evaluation, and performance data. However, the system should provide feedback that allows management to compile personal feedback form various workers to build an instinctive evaluation of an employee’s contribution. Before implementing this tool, St. Jessica’s Urban Medical Center should select appropriate measures for its organization and how to use
Carolyn, Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Medical fraud and abuse are the serious problems for health care system, which need to be prevented from reducing the health care cost and providing quality of services to the people who need care. It is most important to educate health care worker and new employees about these issues so that they will be aware providing patient 's personal information to others. Also, potential providers need to be surveyed to ensure that they are reasonable providers or
Explain your answer. Why are privacy and confidentiality so important to patients and to health care practitioners? If family members and friends are asking about information on others during the course of my employment, one should allow them to know that it is legally and ethically incorrect to do so. Deepen the explanation allow them to know how important privacy and confidentiality is so important. Privacy and confidentiality are so important because when others know information about a patient some will use it against them.
Health Promotion and Health Prevention are important factors in health care and therefore health care policy, politics and management. They assist in (a) achieving a healthy that is sound and robust life and (b) cost reduction. However, critique has been raised against health promotion as an individual(-istic) matter as it has to do with personal behaviour and attitudes (excerise, diet, smoking), whereas social issues and choices of political factors (infrastructure, working conditions, access to primary care, spare time enough for exercise, access to information concerning promotion etc) may prevail as causes of illness, whilst these causes are socio-political. Similar points may be raised against health prevention mainly in the form of primary
Questions should be aimed more towards patient wellness, safety, and patient education. Concerns about the patient being informed about delays and wait times should not be included. In an instance where there is an emergency situation in one patient’s room, there should be of little concern whether you told another patient that is waiting how much longer their wait time should be. This takes away important time from the patient that truly needs the medical help at that moment. It can be debated further whether ancillary staff can handle the updating process, but there will always be room for
Occupational therapists, once qualified join the HCPC (health and care professional’s council). A fee is included in return for stability and resources to aid with continuous and on-going support to gain more experience and knowledge, this is crucial for future care. More examples of positive gains when joining a professional body, the reassurance of being able to contact them when a professional does not agree or like certain factors of their work. Whistleblowing was previously seen as frowned upon, until recently people were being unfairly dismissed when speaking of poor care in their work place. This has changed and they can now have confidence due to new policies which protects people when raising
The high demand for medical care also increases the financial burden on the families and therefore the community as well. As one can see the community health is greatly effected by the high rates of obesity among its individuals. Children in particular have a massive effect because not only are they the future of that community, but they also influence the schools in that region. Healthy People 2020 regard obesity in America as a very serious problem especially among children. It is such a major issue because childhood obesity easily leads to obesity in adulthood that increases the risks for heart disease, diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, stroke, and cancer (Nutrition).
While you can 't alter the past, you can learn from prior mistakes, and correct current issues that inhibit efficient throughput. Mapping your organization 's workflow-process and patient flow patterns provides valuable insight about what works well and which areas need improvement. This exercise will also allow administrators to identify processes and policies that may need to be modified to complement a value-based care delivery model and the vital role health IT and EHR implementation play in creating an organization-wide culture that facilitates value creation. Organizations that do not have sufficient human resources capable of dedicating 50-60 percent of their normal work hours toward process management may benefit from hiring a process management professional to assist with this phase, or discuss options with their EHR vendor. Using Feedback to Improve Productivity Query everyone who will interact with the new system, directly or indirectly.
Hello class, When taking patients reproductive history as a medical assistant I will stay very professional and respectful. Some patients might not feel comfortable releasing private information to you therefore you should assure them that whatever information they disclose to you will be use only for health reason. Make the patient feel comfortable. Some of the questions that you will ask them can make the patient feel embarrassed or uncomfortable because the patient doesn 't want for her private life to be known. Depending on the patient I will try to help them understand that what am asking is not to be nosy but to help the doctor better serve them.
