“Escape Fire: The Fight to Rescue American Healthcare” is a documentary concerning the state of health care in the United States. It alleges that the American healthcare system is a broken system that mainly focuses on getting as many people treated the healthcare system, without actually treating their true medical issues. It challenges that the healthcare system is more about bringing in revenue than providing adequate medical care. It further contends that the healthcare system is more about increasing healthcare numbers than improving health. Escape fire is defined as a fire intentionally set to provide protection against a larger uncontrolled fire (Heineman & Fromke, 2012). This documentary maintains that in order to
“Why We Should Keep the Confederate Monuments Right Where They Are” by John Daniel Davidson is persuasive to an audience of U.S. citizens with the use of rhetorical strategies. Davidson gives the reader interest through the use of authority and expert testimony. He does this by describing President Donald Trump throughout his reading. The audience therefore becomes attracted to this text, because the mention of a big name such as the President, making this text effective. This article is also persuasive through the use of statistical evidence. In the text, there are many instances where statistical evidence is used to help back Davidson’s point. Using this method of evidence gains the readers by presenting interesting findings. The use of statistics
The term Evidenced-based practice (EBP) is one of the most talked about concepts in healthcare. Nursing scholars, worldwide, have sought to provide healthcare workers with the evidence from research to be transform this into clinical care. To ease this transference of data into practice, scholars have developed EBP models. These models direct the researcher with the process from hypothesis to implementation of the data. The perplexity of EBP is that the data can come from research, clinical experience, patients, or local context and environment (Rycroft-Malone, et al., 2012). Because of the complexities of driving research in the healthcare field, different models were developed with different healthcare agendas in mind.
The clinical question for my article was based on quantitative search, nurse to patient ratios must increase to improve safety and the clinical question that is identified in the quantitative research article is how to increase nurses to patient ratio in order to improve patient safety and quality of life especially in older adult patients.
Nurse stafﬁng is a significant region of worry because it can place a strain on patient safety as well as quality of patient care. With cost effectiveness in mind, hospital administrations have elected to reduce nursing stafﬁng ratios and substitute licensed nurses using cheaper unlicensed personnel. This increases uneasiness as the quality of care in hospitals might be undesirably reduced. The necessity to evaluate nurse stafﬁng is essential.
Chapter three “Descriptive Analysis and Presentation of Bivariate Data” Bivariate data are values with the two different variables that are from the same population element. Linear Correlation is an analysis who measures the strength of a linear relationship between two variables. Linear Regression is an analysis that finds the equation of the line that best describes the relationship between two variables.
Evidence-based practice will definitely be more likely to thrive in environments where nurses feel they are being supported by both management staff and available resources. When nurses are offered further resources such as hands on training or simulation training that is backed by evidenced based research they can feel more secure and confident in the job they are able to perform during their shift. Nurses can thrive in their work place organization by building onto their basic knowledge and therefor enabling the nurse to climb the clinical ladder. As our book states “continuing to apply learning contributes to ongoing evidence based practice as one uses newer research and theory as a part of one’s practice.” Nurses who take control of their
Quantitative investigations are scientific, objective, and effective in describing phenomena in terms of magnitude (Balian, 1988). Quantitative investigations use numeric values and statistics to identify patterns, to objectively quantify relationships between variables, and to make predictions. In addition, because large sample sizes are used, data can be generalized to larger populations. However, numeric values are ineffective in describing the subjective interpretations of human emotions (Wakefield, 1995). Because individuals have unique lived experiences and their realities are based on their own perceptions, a single objective truth is unattainable; indeed,
In the Journal of Advanced Nursing article, Whither Nursing Models? The value of nursing theory in the context of evidence-based practice and multidisciplinary health care, author Niall McCrae (2011) discussed key points related to the utilization of nursing models in modern-day clinical practice. With so many advances made since Nightingale times, some argue that evidence-based research and practice should trump the ideas of theorists before them. McCrae cited sources that illustrate a volley of opinions on the topic: are nursing theories essential or are they matters of the past? Upon evaluation of this article, it is evident to the reader that, although they can seem outdated, nursing theories cannot completely be removed from practice as
This contextual project consists of 10 concept from the block 1 study with the title “Research and Nursing Research”. The meaning of each concept will be clarified, critically analyzed and applied to social context, personal life and current professional life. The usefulness of the concept to the current world will also be explained.
Providing care to a patient is a particularly challenging process that requires a great deal of effort from a nurse. A nurse’s ability to give quality care to their patient is an important aspect to a patient’s life both now and in the future. As such, nurses must exhibit specific qualities in their practice in order to maintain the best standard of care for their patients. Given this, I believe that the standards of knowledge, advocacy, and self-awareness are foundational to the nursing practice and to a nurse’s capacity to provide quality patient care.
Epidemiology is the study of the distribution and determinants of health related states or events including disease and the application of the study to the control of disease and other health problem. Various methods can be used to carry out epidemiological investigation; surveillance determinants. The important of epidemiology on the whole is to improve the health of population. This essay will focus on the importance of epidemiology and how it relates to nursing .There will be definition of health, disease and nursing.
Health statistics are important for knowing the health status of the whole population and its various segments and groups, as well as the trend in health status, the provision and distribution of healthcare services, and the impact of the provided services and programs. he success or failure of healthcare programs cannot be veriied without properly collected and interpreted health statistics. Proper allocation of resources also depends on health statistics. Researchers, presenters, and health care workers and students always need health statistics. However, it is not uncommon to ind a local article or presentation, which reports health statistics from all over the world, but fail to report local statistics from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). Journals included in this database are listed in Table 1. d) SaudiMedBase. Saudi MedBase is a bibliographic database published by Saudi Medical Journal and covers 9 Saudi medical journals for the period from 1979 to 1999. he database is available on CDROM only and can be purchased through the website of Saudi Medical Journal. he project is very important and aims to ill a notable gap. Obviously, the limitation is the period covered. In addition, the search engine included is primitive. he journals covered in the database are summarized in Table 1. e) Saudi Research DataBase (SRDB). he SRDB is a service of King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology and aims to index supported scientiic research in KSA. It is not conined to medical ield but has the ability to limit the search to medical research only. Most research are not yet published and researchers can ind high quality information for health statistics. Using the database website (http://www.srdb.org) needs free registration. 2. Registries. Various disease registries are available in KSA although they difer in their scope and geographic coverage. Hence, researchers need to make sure they are aware of the characteristics of each registry
Fashion is my method of self-expression. The clothes we choose to wear gives us control over how others perceive us and affects how we feel about ourselves. From wearing black at the Golden Globes in support of the Time’s Up movement to the traditional Chinese Qi Pao, clothes can show solidarity without words or act as a way for us to connect to our cultural heritage. This is why fashion is important to me, because it allows me to tell a story about who I am and who I aspire to be. I have chosen to further my Management studies at the London College of Fashion because the MA Fashion Design Management covers themes essential for managing a successful fashion brand, which has always been a dream of mine. Upon watching the documentary “The True
