Last but not least Tertiary Prevention hoping to soften impact of disease and or injury that has already occurred and has lasting effects. Examples of these would be rehab programs for Cardiac and strokes. Then of course there are even groups within groups that provide the minority group to others that are affected as well. This creates and environment where patients can share ideas and strategies that have helped them. In regards to Vocational Health the patient would have the opportunity to become part of a program that will assist to with finding different job opportunities after recovery.
In mild cases, treatment is may be unnecessary. In moderate to severe cases, treatment may include behavioral (habit-reversal) and cognitive therapies. Multimodal therapy might be a more suitable approach for some individuals, which includes combining behavioral therapy with pharmacotherapy such as neuroleptic-antipsychotic agents (haloperidol, pimozide) or a2-adrenergic drugs (clonidine, guanfacine). Because Tourette’s is a “tic” disorder, medications should be used cautiously due to the increased risk of tardive dyskinesia (TD), a medication induced disorder in which tics worsen or may become permanent. Botulinum toxin (used mostly for complex motor tics), or in the most severe cases, deep-brain stimulation, are also available treatment
I agree, a counselor must be knowledgeable in treating abuse victims. Also, the counselor should be skilled in several techniques, because using only one technique might not be as helpful. In addition, the counselor needs to understand the context, which the abuse occurred, because there might be other deficits (Gladding, 2015). Therefore, by the counselor being skilled and different techniques in treating abuse, will allow them treating other issues. When working with a victim of abuse, the counselor should have a safely plan for the victim.
The lecture, led by Dr. Christian Dimaano, discussed a variety of health disparities and then went into an in depth look at Henrietta Lacks, and the use of her cells in scientific research. He described health disparities as the differences of health problems between races, lifestyles, and mental processes. This was a very interesting topic for me, as a nursing major, I hadn’t really thought about health disparities before, so it was interesting to think about all of the potentially higher health risks that can occur simply because a patients race, or mental state. He also discussed the social determinants of heath and how things like your physical environment, economic stability, social community, and education can all influence your health. Dr. Dimaano also talked about how social determinants of health are health problems that you had no choice in, they are developed by factors such as sex, age, genes, medical care, and individual behaviors such as work and home life.
Knowing that a child may carry the H6A1A or H6A1B low risk haplogroup may impact family planning choices as well. Another way the article’s information could be used is to possibly form a drug to help people prevent the disease, or people with the disease still in a dormant state. Once we know that there is a haplogroup in individuals with Alzheimer’s that can decrease their risk of developing the disease, we may be able to isolate and further study the specific gene to determine how exactly this genetic component reduces the risk of getting Alzheimer’s. This information could possibly be used to create treatments in the future to eliminate, or at least greatly reduce the
2.1: Explain the importance of recording possible signs or symptoms of dementia in an individual in line with agreed ways of working? The Impact of early diagnosis allows the individual with dementia as well as their family members and friends to accept help so they can understand and adjust with the individual with dementia. This helps individual statute of their other conditions that may have similar symptoms to dementia and that may be treatable before it gets very serious e.g. depression, chest and urinary tract infection which is also known as UTI. This may also help statute out the other possible causes of confusion e.g.
Dealing with a person with HIV it would be best to provide support and hopes, making sure medications are being taken to prevent this from turning into AIDS. According to Kanel (2014), crisis workers and counselors can help society by understanding how those infected and not infected can reduce the risk of spreading the virus, giving ideas of how to reduce the risk of infecting others that counselors can share with clients who may be at risk of spreading or being infected by HIV. I feel dealing with someone who has AIDS would be fairly difficult but it is important to show as much empathy as possible and be supportive encouraging the client to take medications so that they may live as long as possible. Although feelings may be similar my interventions with someone who suffers from PTSD would
Therapists can address this by listening about what’s triggering them, the frequency, and what they do after they’ve been triggered. If a therapist is trained in CBT or DBT it might be beneficial to instruct the individual with PTSD in either form of therapy. It would also be beneficial for a therapist to present a holistic (mind, body, spirit) approach to PTSD because it could very possible that the individual might think that they can think themselves out of PTSD, or if they just take medicine to treat their PTSD,
Identifying the factors that may affect clinicians’ behaviour change to use PRO scores for clinical decision-making and to deliver self-management support for individual patient management of CLBP helps in understanding why clinicians do not implement these two components of the interdisciplinary intervention. This lead to better understanding the gap, which in turn helps choosing the most appropriate intervention, knowledge translation (KT) intervention, to address this gap. This may optimize the interdisciplinary intervention and in turn improve the patients’ health outcomes. The 14 behavior change domains are mapped on behaviour change techniques to select the most appropriate strategies interventions components to overcome the barriers and strengthen the facilitators . The objective of this study is to optimize the delivery of an interdisciplinary intervention for individuals with CLBP in 4 Health and Social Services Centres (CSSSs) by using patient reported PRO scores and delivering self-management support to guide LBP treatment goals.
A pressure ulcer could lead to infected joint replacement in case a patient had a joint replacement which would call for antibiotic treatments that can result in a joint revision surgery if the treatments are unsuccessful. Eventually the patient would be readmitted to the hospital. Therefore, the nurses should be very keen to ensure patients are well attended to, to prevent cases of progress of the injuries (Russo, et al., 2014). Conclusion By adopting the ‘Surgical Prevention of Injury Model’, it can be easy for us to identify safety issues and apply evidence based approach that can help prevent injuries before they occur. By adopting this model, organizations can lower healthcare
