If given the opportunity, I can contribute my skills and experiences to maintain and support your network. Besides working diligently in the classroom at Boston College, I have volunteered at Brigham and Women’s Hospital since my freshmen year. I gained experience interacting with patients in a clinical setting that will be useful as a patient advocate as a member of the Project Healthcare team.

I generated friendly conversation about the city’s beloved Boston Red Sox to diffuse their obvious nervousness about their upcoming procedure.

This can include barriers on why homeless individuals do not seek health care services, which can include lack of attainment of physical needs, affordability, resources, and compassion of healthcare providers ((Nickasch & Marnocha, 2009). This was my first time really working with homeless individuals that were seeking medical services, so I really did not know what to expect. During this event, I was overwhelmed by the feeling that I truly want to continue working with this population, and advocate for continue resources and events, like Homeless Connect, to help improve their quality of life.

The most significant lesson I learned was that developing a therapeutic relationship with our patients can help them feel less overwhelmed in health care surroundings and gain confidence to ask questions. Patients with low health literacy tends to experience more pressure and concern due to their lack of understanding for medical procedures and fear to ask questions, not wanting to seem “stupid”. I also learned instead of asking what level of education they can read or understand, it’s a better question to ask if the patient can read at all (McCune, Springfield, & Pohl,

Budgetary constraints are currently limiting our ability to hire more healthcare provdiers, so an ability to utilize licensed caregivers more efficiently would be helpful. By installing a pneumatic delivery system, the hospital system could have the licensed caregivers focus more time on providing excellent care to our patients. There are some noted concerns that using a pneumatic tube system for laboratory specimen delivery may increase the risk of hemolysis in a blood sample (Lima-Oliveira et al., 2014). However, this risk of hemolysis does not pose a substantial harm to patients and is clinically insignificant in the vast majority of cases. This is particularly true in the case of the Alvin C. York Medical Center as the units that would utilize the pneumatic tube system are units that do not serve patients with acute medical conditions.
