Prospective DUE: Prospective review includes reviewing a patient's planned medication therapy before a medication is dispensed. This process allows the pharmacist to identify and rectify problems before the patient has obtain the drugs. Pharmacists periodically perform prospective evaluation in their daily practice by reviewing a prescription medications dosage and directions while evaluating patient information for possible drug interactions.

There are many things that nurses can do to monitor errors that may occur by means of medication administration. According to Leufer and Cleary-Holdforth (2013), a “[…] crucial role of continuing education in fundamental areas of nursing practice, of which medication management is one” (p.214). A possible solution could be that, just like CPR certification, there could be a certification for nurses based on the six rights of medication administration. In this training, each nurse would learn the basics of med-admin and ways that they could minimize errors. By completing this certification, the nurse would then be able to administer medicine as safely as possible to each of the patients that they care for.
As a nurse, I explained him the option of having a tranquilizer medication (which was prescribed by doctor) prior to the MRI procedure, which would help him to relax and they would be able to do the procedure. The doctor can decide which treatment option is best for him ether he needs surgery or only medication regimen depending on the result. The overall goal and result to cure the patient as much as possible. Learning objectives: By the end of the lesson, Mr. Jones will verbally
On Wednesday, November 18, 2015 I had my clinical rotation at the Surgery Center. I was scheduled to be in the "open" unit, where I was able to watch hand surgeries as well as watch the surgical treatment of a extracoroporeal shock wave lithotripsy. I was also helping with intubating patients, starting tourniquets. I was even able to help for a little while in Post- Anesthesia Care Unit when the other nurses was busy.

After a random selection of patients is selected, the process begins at the point of inpatient admission. For example, a patient may have been admitted to the emergency department with chest pain. After determining the patient is suffering from a myocardial infarction, the patient is moved into surgery, then into an intensive care unit. The surveyor would follow every step of the patient’s journey throughout the hospital, evaluating the hospital’s service. Utilizing the tracer methodology ensures surveyors spend more time observing patient care, and delivery of treatment services.
Physiotherapy profession has many clinical reasoning models which can be applied during the practice like hypothetico-deductive reasoning, pattern recognition reasoning, and narrative reasoning (Christensen, Jones, & Carr, 2002). The hypothetico-deductive reasoning involves that collected information from the client and creating a hypothesis which should be tested. Pattern recognition reasoning occurs when the clinician has an experience in recognizing similar clinical presentation seen previously with other patients. When same clinical presentations appear, the clinician may take similar clinical reasoning as taken before for similar cases. This model is possible to be applied by well organized knowledge base and experienced clinicians.
