This is what many doctors call “flesh and blood decision making” (page 6). The “fast and frugal” part of the thinking, where your actions work ahead of your thoughts, are the core of flesh and blood decision making. Dr. Groopman explains how snap judgment is not taught, but is developed in the moment, right when a new doctor steps onto the medical floor. He says, “[snap judgments and thin slicing] serve as the foundation of all mature medical thinking, it can save lives…” (page 7). Thin slicing and snap judgements cannot be taught in medical school, it is more like a reflex a doctor develops with more experience.
I have experienced many difficult situations where I had to rely heavily on non-clinical skills--flexibility, teamwork, and communication--to achieve a positive outcome. A PBL-style curriculum would be more valuable to me as a future medical professional, because it closely mimics the scenarios I will likely encounter in real medical practice. Problem Based Learning will help me develop my clinical skills as well as the professional and interpersonal skills that all healthcare providers require to succeed. Additionally, I believe that I will find PBL to be far more engaging for me as a student. Through the active learning environment that the program promotes with self-directed study and group discussion sessions, PBL aligns with my personality in such a way that will ultimately result in a better and more enjoyable
school, you don’t want to be a second-class citizen” (Berger, 2014). While social stigma arises from various standpoints, osteopathic physicians’ competency is often scrutinized due to their low GPA or MCAT score in gaining acceptance into medical school. As this might hold true and have sheltered many aspiring students, it’s important to recognize that osteopathic physicians receive similar medical education and training as compare to allopathic physicians. An acceptance to medical school is just the beginning of the medical journey, as they still repeatedly have to prove their competency through medical licensing exams. The quality of being a good physician is rooted in patient care.
Being an Area 15 FFA officer will teach me several new things about the FFA and leadership skills that I don’t know already. I have attended several leadership camps and seminars, but there is always room for improvement in regards to leadership abilities. Having a higher leadership role than what I already have will significantly improve my knowledge of leadership and better refine the leadership skills that I already have. There are a lot of
As for myself I could probably, read more leadership books, take more classes or seminars, pinpoint certain skills, behaviors, authenticity and hone in on them. I could also practice more on the traits that I could do better at. I could also listen and attend more lectures. It’s like the old joke goes…what is the biggest room in the world? Answer, room for improvement.

The goal of this literature review is to show the importance of incorporating evidence based practice (EBP) into the clinical and education setting of nursing. EBP education needs to be added to yearly nursing competencies in all settings of healthcare delivery. While EBP and protocols should never replace clinical critical thinking on an individual, patient to patient level, the community deserves the best care, which is current evidence-based. Nurses are accountable for their choices in practice, EBP empowers nurses to question rationale of protocols and physician orders. There has been an attempt to implement EBP into the clinical practice of the healthcare system nationwide.
The Joint Commission determines the highest priority patient safety issues and how best to address them (The Joint Commission, 2016). Treatment issues and errors have been a focus of the Joint Commission however the errors in diagnosis leading to inaccurate treatments have not been of serious concern to be placed on the dockets (Berenson et al., 2014). The Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine and the Institute of Medicine are examining this problem. It is currently made up of mostly physicians and other healthcare professionals. As the current trend continues with Nurse Practitioners practicing at the primary and acute care levels, it is imperative that nurse practitioners should definitely be a large part of the committee by the IOM through their Health Care Quality Initiative (Berenson et al.,

Self Reflection over an Introduction to Adaptive Leadership When first signing up for this class I believed it to be a class about learning how to become a leader, or an even better one. After watching the course introduction and learning more about this class I learned that it was not what I thought it was about, but would still value me greatly. As I have examined the history of different leadership styles and theories I have expanded greatly on what I knew about leadership, learning specifically about adaptive leadership. I can also say that I have seen growth in my journals over the past few weeks, as they have started to grasp a better understanding of adaptive leadership. This course has also expanded on different aspects of adaptive leadership such as: disequilibrium, diversity, running experiments, and the four KLC competencies of civic leadership.
