The songs are, therefore, a guide to the way he operates. It elicits a particular response from the brain. Before we conclude this analysis, understanding and cooperating the different clinical procedures for different mental conditions are not the same thing. However, the integration of practice that harmonizes and quickly diagnoses a specific mental disorder is what characterizes an ideal mental practice by health
The aim of mental health courts is to connect people with mental illness, that display deviant behavior, to mental health resources and social services that can better deal with cases such as these as an option for individuals who need to be treated more than they need to be imprisoned (A Promising Alternative, 2011). One good reason to creating drug and mental health courts in a community is their goal to problem solve rather than just push defendants through the conveyor belt or revolving door
In addition to the medical care and long term treatment of a family member, an open and liberal view of mental illness is almost an essential in being able to care for someone who is ill. Some feelings that must be acknowledged and processed are: shame; blame; anger; denial and guilt. “A central conundrum for caregivers is how most effectively to draw the boundary between themselves and the mentally ill person in their lives.” (72) In the excerpt In Sickness and in Health, David Karp examines the emotional and physical toll that caring for someone with a mental illness brings. He states that there are two essential ideas that must be incorporated when caring for a spouse with a mental illness, but I believe that they are essential for all caregivers regardless of relationship to the patient. “The first is that they cannot solve the problem.
Therefore, it is important to discuss possible solutions to helping those who suffer get treatment. Mental health plays a huge role in the everyday lives of people and their physical health. While some think that mental health services are not important, should not be provided to many, and should not be available in schools, mental health care should be available to all who need it for free and be available in schools. Free mental health can help those struggling and the public be aware of the issues, help those get the help they need, protect the individual and
Introduction Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) are a set of theories that endeavour to solve patient’s contemporary problems. Some of these theories include Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, Rational Behavior Therapy, Rational Living Therapy, Cognitive Therapy and Dialectic Behavior Therapy. However, throughout this work, we will be focusing mainly on Beck’s cognitive behavioural therapy. It is important to note that all CBT treatments are characterized by certain features. Firstly it is a highly structured, evidence based-treatment that aims to address patient’s current problems.
A better understanding of the concept of uncertainty in illness can help support the nurse in treating multiple levels of uncertainty. This analysis provides information that may benefit providers in becoming more effective in reducing the level of uncertainty that patients feel when diagnosed with an illness as well as assist in informed decision-making. The analysis of uncertainty will establish influences leading to uncertainty, positive and negative outcomes associated with patients experiencing levels of being uncertain, as well as vital attributes of the concept. The importance to best understand the concept of uncertainty, is not only to provide the best practice to patients, however also to efficiently address and treat unexpected circumstances that cause one to feel uncertain in regards to their health within the disease
Some of these concepts may be changed slightly to be fully accurate for the social work field. Functionalism will be used to help patients and myself understand their mental processes and how it affects them. Behaviorism will be used to observe the patient and their family’s behaviors in order to determine the best approach to help them. Cognitive dissonance can be used to help a patient struggling with an addiction change their attitude towards their addiction and its surrounding factors. In the future, I want my career to be in the mental health department of social work.
This will enable patients to talk about health issues including emotional, social, mental problems that disturb them. In healthcare, certain factors affect good nurse-patient communication which are time, language, environment, shortage of nursing staff, assumptions etc. These factors lead to error in medication, misdiagnosis and even death. So, the need for good nurse-patient communication should be emphasized in nursing practice. 3.3 Application in current job I really do know and understand the benefits of a good nurse-patient communication.
This are mainly related to those clients or patients whose life problems are adversely affecting or maintaining a disorder. This type of counselling involves identification of problems by the patient and measures to solve it. The measures are then tried and reviewed. This method is very useful in treating mild mood disorders. Interpersonal counselling- this is a type of counselling which focuses on the present state of interpersonal relationships like in home, work and society etc.
Others may need outpatient treatment. There are people who may need only an advice and supervision of a doctor. Stabilization of the patient's condition will be the main goal if a person is in life-threatening condition. The primary goal of treatment should be aimed at corporeal and psychological needs. The patient must show internal feelings that led to the
Patient with critical condition need to be considered as they need to be closely monitor by health professionals in the hospital. The Consultation document ‘Care in the Community’ (DHSS, 1981) made several suggestions for moving people who do not need nursing care out of long -stay hospital (Social Policy and Social Welfare, 1983). By limiting services, NHS is trying to increase its care to what it may be refer as ‘treatment’. Giving priorities to both conditions are necessary but doing this by choosing the right environment and what is best for patient is more important. In family members, it might affect elderly people that might require help such as nursing care.
Some changes that can be done is to create different goals to fit different individual groups. Two or more agendas should be in place; one catering specifically for the underprivileged, single-parent households, teen parents, low-income. The other for those who have support, accesses, and resources, but may be lacking in other areas, this current agenda can be kept. Special attention should be given to those who need the most care. A medical plan that is solely for the underrepresented will help prevent health disparities is a program that provides free preventive care.
With the use of EHR comes the opportunity for patients to receive improved coordinated care from medical professions and easier access to their health data. The author identifies views about the problems of EHR and the legislation. Health care professionals understand and accept the obligations under the Privacy and Security, patient’s information can still be at breached if those involved in patient health do not make sure that their information is secured. There is an increased risk of privacy violations with EHR if used improperly. Even though there are legislations in place to protect patient’s information, data still can be easily accessed either intentionally or accidental by using improper security measures.
Communication and collaboration play a major role in the plan of care for the patient. Involving the family in the care of the patient ensures better health outcomes, higher levels of patient satisfaction as well as a higher sense of security and safety (O’Malley, et. a., 2008). The family and the interdisciplinary team must work together for a common goal. The goal of both parties is the well being and quality of care for the patient (O’Malley, Brown, Krug and the Committee of Pediatric Emergency Medicine, 2008; Rusher and Ware, 1998) To reach this goal the interdisciplinary team must be mindful that the family is the center of the child’s life and they must provide resources to the family as well (Rusher and Ware, 1998).
