The way communication changes when talking to an audience or talking to fellow people in the field is something that occurs in each. Though each of these discourse communities use different sets of jargon. The idea of making an idea easier for an audience of common people is something that happens with both communities. Another important aspect that is the same among the discourse communities is the cost. Though the cost comes from different areas, the bottom line the cost is great.
In recent decade, the United States has seen supermarkets continuously get filled with packages labeled with things like “Low sodium” or “No Trans Fats.” Companies stick these labels on their food to match the current fads of what is good for you and what is not. In his essay Unhappy Meals, Michael Pollan advocates a return to natural and basic foods, and deplores nutritionism. Pollan argues that nutritionism does not actually tell people what is healthy or not, and that the only way to be sure you are eating healthy is to eat natural, fresh food.
Effective communication is a key component of interprofessional practice to provide the best care for a patient treated by a multidisciplinary team. In my future profession as an occupational therapist there will be many important roles and responsibilities to consider across different specialities. Occupational therapists regularly work with nurses within an interdisciplinary team and the two health professions must practice effective communication, and the skills which foster the effectiveness. Occupational therapists, nurses, and the communication skills these professional require to work in an interdisciplinary team will be discussed. Occupational therapy is a health profession dedicated to supporting people in living their lives with meaning
Logan Duncan ENG 122 Nathan Huseman 9 February 2016 Agonism in Academic Discourse Analytical Response Paper The 2002 release of “Agonism in Academic Discourse” by author Deborah Tannen, professor of linguistics at Georgetown University, proposes a new method of debate, or rather any discourse found in academe. This new form of discourse – new only in the sense of its possible wide use – is not dominated by agonism, defined by Tannen as ritualized adversativeness, but rather cooperation among scholars in pursuit of uncovering true knowledge through productive and analytical conversation. Conversation being a superior term to describe Tannen’s proposal than debate, a sharing of ideas as equals with no perception of winning or losing - closer in relation to the Socratic method; wherein debate is often perceived as a battle in which winning is the object and brings to mind politics and other crude forms of
According to world wildlife organisation, overfishing occurs when more fish are caught than the population can replace through natural reproduction. Gathering as many fish as possible may seem like a profitable practice, but overfishing has serious consequences. The results may not only affect the balance of life in the oceans, but also the social and economic well-being of the coastal communities who depend on fish for their way of life. According to the research world wildlife organisation, 1.6% of the world’s oceans have been declared as marine protected areas (MPAS), and 90% of existing MPAS are open to fishing.
After learning the truth about our country’s food systems, I have become more skeptical of mass produced foods and the processes the animals go through to become the food we eat today. Good and healthy food is very important to myself and to my family. Food means a lot in my family. A meal is an essential part of each day. While sipping my delicious soup, that my grandparents would make for my me
All members must be educated on the different roles and functions of all positions. Tensions, misunderstandings, and conflicts caused by differences of opinions and interests can interfere with effective interdisciplinary communications (Lancaster et al., 2015). While this study was performed in a hospital setting, I wonder if the results would be the same in a clinic? It is not unusual for a physician or an APRN in a clinic to only have a UAP working with them. As patient loads are increasing and providers have less time to interact with the patient, it is essential to include all feedback from the UAP.
An example of when I have used inter-professional communication to collaborate to improve patient outcomes is when a patient came into the ED with urinary retention. This patient was an older man and he said that he has not urinated well the past few days. He stated that he just gets dribbles every so often and that he has an urge to go so bad. Once the ED physician communicated with the patient an order was put in to insert an Indwelling Catheter. I went into the patient’s bed area and described to him what I was going to do and how the catheter works. On assessment of his abdomen I noticed his lower pubic area was bulging outward, which looked very abnormal. I started to insert the Indwelling catheter and noticed that when it was fully inserted there was no urine return, but I was
As Jamie Oliver begins to deliver his presentation, there was a certain feeling inside of me that wondered where his speech was leading. He begins to talk and move simultaneously and I felt the passion being delivered by his body language and the tone of his voice. Jamie put every effort into ensuring that his listeners understood exactly what his intention were as he constantly talked about his passion for a nation providing consumers with a healthy selection of food products and schools educating the children with a knowledge of healthy food choices. He communicated in understandable terms the disgusting health condition and diseases that American citizen; industry profoundly advertise unhealthy food choice as if it is healthy for the
In America, there are many things that are kept in the dark, which sometimes doesn’t come to the light, unless it is exposed. Michael Pollan and Jim Hightower both expose the truths that aren’t always too apparent in the eye of the beholder, which in this case, is Americans. They both unveil lies and tell truths, which in the end, is more than beneficial to the American society. In a letter to the future President of the United States, Michael Pollan acknowledges the troublesome in food in our society.
The main disadvantage of interdisciplinary research is that sometimes there’s difficulty in establishing lines of connection between multiple disciplines. Also, at times, interdisciplinary research can lack coherence and a sense of purpose (Benson, 1982). For an interdisciplinary approach to work effectively, there must be mutual trust and respect between collaborators. Also, there must be an equal sharing of insights, perspectives, and knowledge between individuals from different disciplines with the singular aim of planning, goal-setting and
Accurate, easy-to read and scientifically valid nutrition and health information on food labels is an essential component of a comprehensive public health strategy to help consumers improve their diets and reduce the risk of diet-related diseases. Consumers often compare prices of food items in the grocery store to choose the best value for their money but comparing their purchases using a comprehensive food label can help make the best choices for their health. That is what makes food labeling a public health issue – inadequate food labels may lead to poor quality food choices. Indeed today food labels could not confidently be referred to as accurate, easy-to read and containing scientifically valid nutrition and all necessary health information. They are often referred to as misleading, containing flawed or inaccurate information and sometimes very difficult to understand by various health specialists.
Introduction Communication is a very powerful thing and it is so powerful that humans and animals can interact with each other and communication is inevitable and it is either verbal or non-verbal and it can be effective or ineffective and it important that communication is effective or else you as an individual will not be able to build relationships and maintain them for a long time. The essay will talk about my strengths and limitations in a dyadic conversation between my friend and me. I will be focussing on myself in the conversation. The essay will also cover the communication concepts and basics. Strength (Effective Communication) There are two types of ways to communicate, effectively and ineffectively, the type of communication that will be discussed in the paragraph is effective communication.
Food production establishments are expected to uphold the highest quality and health standards. It is more of a requirement than a request that is usually mandated by authority bodies. In this respect, all activities done by Chicken International Group should focus on providing the best products that adhere to health principles. It would be unfair to charge customers extra for an adjustment made in the production process. The dilemma, in this case, is whether the company should charge 20% more for products denoted with the term “free range” or to follow standard guidelines without focusing on increasing profit
