How I was feeling before the experiences, I would of read a lot of topics and just believe what I was reading and not really question it because that would have been more work for me and make things harder for me. During the project I started seeing that some information didn’t look right, compared to the rest so I started thinking, is this all true, where did I get it, is it a trusted website or book. Also I had to give my opinion on the theories of aging so I had to question the information by getting more information to back everything up, which made me start critical think about the topic. During the experiences my reacting was that, so many sources are actually not true and that we should never just believe what we are told, you should have your own ideas. After I was finish the project, I didn’t just learn about the elderly but about how important it is to question everything and don’t just believe it because it’s not always the truth and that I should only use sources that are trusted by the
I will say I feel this is most important because without communication and listening things would be chaotic. Communication is used between your mentor and yourself or between patients and fellow employees. Listening has to do with learning and helping to figure out the details to issues. There a great quote written by G.K Chesterton that says, "There 's a lot of difference between listening and hearing." I agree that your knowledge is your power and with that being said you cannot gain knowledge if you do not
The plan needs to be well thought out and strategic measure put into place so the objective is a long term. The plan has to have consistency. Not just a once or twice a year gathering to promote good health. Running Head: WELLNESS PROGRAMS 4 To develop such plans a company should first take a survey on what areas of good health do they really need to focus upon. Research should also include what competitors are offering and also how local areas business can contribute by supporting or partnering with your
Ethical concerns in clinical trials The goal of clinical research is to develop knowledge that improves human health or increases our understanding of human biology. People participating in clinical research make this scarce knowledge available to scientists. The way to find out if a new drug or treatment is safe or effective, for example, is to test it on patient volunteers. But this clearly puts a human life at risk for the betterment of others. And it at this place where the Ethical concern comes to the forefront.
Structural intervention is defined in public health as the intervention that attempts to engage the complex social, economic and political determinants of health. The evaluation of structural interventions can be a difficult task because they need to be observed, sometimes for extended periods of time. In addition, the delivery of these programs is of various levels such as communities, institutions, or certain populations. Furthermore, random assignment can also be challenging because of issues such as ethics, logistics, and /or political feasibility. However, evaluation of structural interventions is important so that there is a positive link between science, health policies and public confidence.
My vision is to travel to impoverished countries and give medical assistance to those who are less fortunate. Not sufficient with my knowledge and experience, I expect to provide comfort, support as well as encouraging those in difficult times. As previously stated, my desire to become a nurse came from past experiences, some which I strongly consider provided me with the qualities entailed to be successful nurse. By being a student at the University of Florida College of Nursing’s Program, I believe I will able to accomplish my career goals which include attaining the core skills required to obtain a Master’s of Science Degree in Nursing Anesthesia, committing myself to lifelong learning, and contributing with the
During my placement at The George Hull Centre, I would invest time to improve my knowledge for my learning goal of health promoting positive discipline. Positive discipline is a topic that has not been discussed yet in the nursing program. This is a very important topic to discuss as discipline effects a child’s mental well-being. As well, it is essential to understand this topic as it impacts the social determinant of health, healthy child development. During the creation of my presentation, I would seek feedback from my preceptor in a timely manner to determine whether I needed to change any terminology or include any additional information.
I want to join an outreach program to help those who cannot afford the expenses and are misinformed about oral hygiene. Oral hygiene is fundamental for personal health, but also an important factor for self-esteem. I plan to teach others the importance of oral hygiene and show them how to establish an oral health routine to create healthy life long habits. Knowledge is powerful. I would like to share my knowledge to help empower children and adults who may need it most.
Typically, evidence based practice critiques the research findings, quality improvement data and expert opinion to single out the most appropriate approaches of improvement. On the other hand, clinical research uses the existing methods and processes in the search for improvement i.e. it is based on the opinions and tradition and nothing can be done more. Indeed, the core business of the healthcare planners is to always make improvements on quality and efficiency of healthcare services. Thus, engaging in meetings where opinions, researches and other relevant knowledge is shared allows comprehensive learning, effective research and crafting or invention of better approaches to ensure patients and nurses enjoy the services and the health care environment as implied by Munhall (2012) and Torrey et al.
The most obvious one is the difference between the concept of understanding and that of empathy. Because of the uncertainty of the concept of empathy, and its relative distance from everyday language, we chose to use the word understanding. We phrased the questions in a way that was designed to direct the service front line employees to a deep and meaningful understanding and to enable them to express emotions. But however, it might be that the use of this word led the service front line employees to a more cognitive-intellectual orientation, and less to empathic emotions. On the other hand, most service front line employees did refer to emotional aspects.
