Patient safety has received much recognition after the Institute of Medicine’s publication of “To err is to human: building a safer health system” , patient safety includes the avoidance, prevention and amelioration of adverse events emanating from health care delivery procedures and it comprises of systems of patient care, error reporting, and starting new systems aimed at reducing risk of errors in patient care as well as care functions which nursing has sole responsibility (Berland et al., 2012).

(Royal College of Nursing, 2015) Hypertension, high blood pressure, or hypotension, low blood pressure, can be a sign of a decreased state of health for my patients, therefore it was imperative that a bp exam is carried out in the correct way for the
Exploring clients who survived life-threatening conditions provide a more complete assessment of quality in maternal health care [8-10]. The maternal near-miss concept suggested to be routinely used in national programs as a tool for evaluating the quality of maternal health care . In addition, the near-miss indicators are indicators of outcome and provide an overall evaluation of the performance of the health service or health system in reducing severe maternal short-term outcomes . In order to produce a more complete and even more tangible evaluation of quality of care, a set of process indicators were adapted and developed based on the criterion-based clinical audit concept which considers a feasible and beneficial mode of auditing the quality of maternal health care .
In the leadership in care delivery course, we were assigned to a hospital to perform clinical hours and provide care to four patients. Additionally, the purpose of this paper is to explain and provide examples on how our patient care included the concepts of Quality and Safety Education for Nursing (QSEN) competencies, delegation, handoff reporting, and a reflection of the clinical experience. Quality and Safety Education for Nursing (QSEN) Competencies QSEN consists of six competencies: patient centered care, quality improvement, teamwork and collaboration, safety, informatics, and evidence based practice. To provide patient-centered care, I had to educate the patient when administering medications on why the patient was taking the medication and side effects. Care had to be individualized with each patient and it included providing respect with his or her decisions in their care.
Section B 1.Purpose of the study: What was the aim of the research study? The aims of the Quality of life after percutaneous coronary intervention research study were to assess the holistic quality of life of patients who have undergone percutaneous coronary intervention and to also identify the significant dissimilarities in quality of life among the subgroups of patients by their demographic characteristics and perceived cardiac risk factors. (Cassar & Baldacchino, 2012) 2.Research design: What type of quantitative/qualitative methodology was used?

Payment systems have to be adapted with hierarchy of policy priorities and practical considerations. Selected payment system and applied incentives should be coordinated with goals of health sector and also improve the clinical knowledge, cultural level and ethical principles ( 35). Findings of the study suggested four major concepts about payment system of family physician program:
"Healthy People 2020 (HP2020) provides a comprehensive set of 10-year, national goals and objectives for improving the health of all Americans" ("Healthy People 2020", 2015, p. 2). It monitors and evaluates whether the goals of improving health indicators are met or getting worse. Community health problems should be analyzed in order to comprehend and effectively resolve the problem ("Analyzing Community Problems", 2015). Levels of prevention are phases wherein healthcare professionals can intervene in the health of individuals and communities. Primary prevention involves seeking ways to prevent a person from having a disease they can be prone to.
Healthy People is an organization that identifies the Nation’s health improvement priorities. Established for more than 30 years, Healthy People is a recognized science-based national health objective that focuses on monitoring progress, motivating action, and the guiding efforts to improve health across the country (Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 2011). Also, Healthy People 2020 locates nearly 1,200 objectives in the preparation of 42 topic areas of which each represents an important public health area. Consequently, the aims of Healthy People 2020 Progress Reviews are to provide health officials and the public with information on the current status of the objectives within each of the Healthy People 2020 topic areas. Therefore, the health officials include the Assistant Secretary for Health, senior Health and Human Services (HHS) officials and Healthy People 2020 stakeholders (Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC),
(2010) evaluation was it evaluated the data at 3 months, thus long-term sustainability of the implementation of guideline to improve outcomes among HIV patient reading renal health is unknown. According to Gawlinski (2007), it is important to measure “the process and outcome variable variables 6 to 12 months after implementation” to evaluate the sustainability of the practice change. Likewise, DiCenso et al. (2005) mentioned that the financial costs of additional staff, physical resources, new equipment, implementation strategies, staff education, patient education, diagnostic tests should be evaluated to determine the success of the practice change. However, Goodroad et al.
It includes both hospital planning and home follow-up in partnership with the client and family. In fact the highlight of TCM is client-family understanding and management of health problems, identification and response to potential issues to prevent deterioration in client health status (Enderlin, et al., 2013; Naylor, et al, 2014). TCM has been demonstrated to reduce ED visits, hospital readmissions, and hospital costs in three different randomized controlled studies (Naylor, et al.,
The literature support for this project consists of analysis of several studies that examine the impact on access to care for those who live with a minimum of one health condition, and have limited income. Further, the studies examine these impacts on both those less than 65 years-old, and those 65 years-old and greater. Last, the impact of access to transportation is examined with regard to its impact on access to care (access). These issues are contrasted with how telemedicine can improve access for this patient population.
