First, it would be important to know the sensitivity of many people who are at risk to develop this disorder. Second, the specificity of how many people who are being affected by diabetes in order to start the treatment and to prevent more complications. This could be considered as the most difficult level because not everyone will be complied with the screening process. Next, other aspect that can be affected the screening outcomes is the implications of false negative and false positive results which are inevitable given to the people that have been screening. Last, screening is costly effective.
The risk factors that should be assessed because they can affect the onset, rate of progression, and severity of periodontal disease and response to therapy. It is important to document and determine the patient’s risk and to convey to the patient that these risk factors can be more than additive. The value of risk assessment is that it can help the practitioner to establish an accurate diagnosis, provide an optimal treatment plan, and determine appropriate maintenance programs. Risk assessment may help to explain variability in treatment responses. In patients with multiple risk factors, the practitioner may proceed with caution with regard to invasive surgical procedures and may aggressively use pharmacologic adjuncts such as antimicrobials and host modulatory therapy in addition to mechanical therapy.
Effective nurse staffing is vital to the delivery of high quality patient care. In this manner, nurse staffing is a vital health care issue since nurses are a significant element in the delivery of health care. The work of nurses, unlike the physicians’ work is rarely organized around specific disease populations since patients are normally grouped by nursing care intensity or age group such as intensive care or geriatrics (Duffield et al., 2011). Additionally, elderly patients who need minimum nursing care might be separated into surgical or medical units nonetheless might as well be combined into one ward. This paper examines the effect of nursing staffing in clinical settings while focusing on improving quality of patient care and safety
The Health belief model is used to convince him to follow the given advice. This model has two set of beliefs. The first one is allow Rory to perceive susceptibility and vulnerability. By doing so, he will be familiar with the seriousness of the expected consequences that may result from metabolic syndrome.

Jo's problem by Mr. Tom which could have had bigger repercussions in the end depending on the phobia's severity. Effective communication coupled with team work is the basis for the delivery of high quality services and patient safety care. Failures in communication are one of the main causes of inadvertent patient harm. As an anaesthetic nurse trainee being confronted with unexpected scenarios out of my comfort zone is an enrichment for my knowledge and practice. In this particular situation, I can conclude that Mrs. Jo could have had a better approach regarding her phobia and her level of anxiety, from the onset of her pre-assessment with Mr. Tom.
The author of the journal suggests that “immediate review of prescriptions should be performed with the assistance of a hospital pharmacist” to prevent errors in the prescription stage and to increase patient safety. Errors within administration are also common. Chloe Copping (RGN) published an article titled ‘Preventing and reporting drug administration errors. In this article she suggests that the most common source of drug administration errors are within calculation and also the 5 R’s, right drug, right route, right time, right dose and right patient. She states that a busy working environment can lead to distraction which then leads to medication errors therefore inhibiting patient safety.
The next step to treatment is to educate the client effectively in order to encourage compliance with treatment plan (Gamaldo, Sloane, Gamaldo, & Salas, 2015). For example, teaching a client who is claustrophobic to wear prescribed CPAP for a sleep apnea will be very important to minimize fear, and understand that the benefits outweighs the risk (Gamaldo et al., 2015).
This deals with a customers’ perception that a product or service they are buying provides them with a higher value than a competitor. Superior quality can be broken down into two kinds of attributes: quality as excellence and quality as reliability. A customers’ perspective of quality as excellence would be that they want a product or service that provides features and a level of service that has no comparison. With regard to quality as excellence, if customers perceive that the products design, features, and functions are better than everyone else, then they would be more likely to buy their product. Higher quality products allow for a higher sense of value provided to the customer.
This can be done through surveys and allowing the patients to feel value; for example, a doctor ordering a MRI can be considered a customer because he/she receives the service of the radiology department. The last quality initiative is employee empowerment. This empowerment will allow the employees to improve their environment, but also advocates for change, and overcoming resistance among other employees. For example, the manager will work with both the clinical and administrative staffs to reduce the wait times, improve patients’ satisfaction, as well as incomplete

Several studies have identified communication as a pre-requisite for revealing patient symptoms, concerns, and issues, and thereby an important skill to obey of the treatment, diagnostic, health promotion, and rehabilitation programs(3-5). Considering the importance of good communication in care, significant issues such as lack of information, inappropriate information and lack of accountability are still reported in patient satisfaction surveys. (6)One of the most important issues in improving the
