Also, in one situation, I was preparing to
The purpose of this assignment was to write a critique paper of the video “Second Opinion with T. R. Reid: Inside Ayurvedic Medicine”. Before I watch a movie or a documentary about a polemic or multidimensional topic, I like to do a self-assessment of my beliefs and attitudes towards it. I have found that this practice helps to understand my posture before being influenced by the information presented. In this specific case, my knowledge of Ayurvedic medicine, its origins, history, and advances through the years was very limited. Other than reading a few articles for academic purposes I haven’t dedicated enough time to read or even apply this type of traditional medicine.

(15) ASP helps clinicians improve the quality of patient care through decreasing irrational use of antibiotics,(16) increasing infection cure rates thus improving patient’s safety and reducing treatment failures. It also may result in increasing frequency of correct therapeutic and prophylactic prescribing of antimicrobials. (17, 18) Moreover they significantly reduce antibiotic resistance. (19, 20) These goals are often achieved while saving hospitals resources. (14) In 2014, recognizing the urgent need for wise antibiotic use in hospitals and the benefits of ASPs, CDC recommended implementation of ASP in all acute care
Physician/hospital collaborations, when structured properly, can yield a host of benefits, including improvements in several key areas: economics, quality of care, operating performance, resource consumption and physician retention and leadership. The hospitals will have to evaluate physician competency level, even when under contract. The reason being is because hospitals are held accountable regardless, but if they had a more reliable staff it could reduce lawsuits. Physicians rely on hospitals for the use of their facilities and also to gain income. To have financial security is a motivation alone for physicians that work in the
But after convincing her that I was more interested in my medical chart than her portfolio, bio mom allowed me to charm her” (Psychology Today 1). Many biological parents may think their children only want to know them or meet them for silly reasons. Honestly, most children just need some information about their medical history. Children may need that information to know if there are any medical issues than run in the family or may just simply need to know what has gone on in the
However, the pros for following up are: individualized attention, improves disease outcomes by providing referrals to appropriate care, reinforces what was taught at the fair (Bramante & Song, 2012). The cons of following up were: time, money, impart a false sense of fully individualized care, adds another level of care with risks of the loss of privacy or confidentiality and the need for informed consent (Bramante & Song, 2012). Thus, the author concludes that following ups after a fair has shown to be beneficial but raises many other important
This is really interesting to me because back when I was having my back problem, I had no idea what an osteopathic doctor was. Also, according to the journal, “osteopathic physicians in the United States, unlike allopathic physicians, chiropractors, or physical therapists, can treat low back pain simultaneously using both conventional primary care approaches and complementary spinal manipulation. ….This represents a unique philosophical approach in the treatment of low back pain.”(BMC) This is really interesting to know. This means that they go more in depth on the issue, rather than trying to find other problems. Another interesting point was that they had ways to treat a patient using OMT, which is known as osteopathic manipulative treatment.
I was initially exposed to the field of osteopathy at the end of eighth grade when I visited the Queens Hospital for appearance of skin rashes. Unlike other physicians, I had seen previously regarding this condition, the osteopathic physician treating me at the moment did not dismiss me with just another ointment. Instead the physician took a detailed history and tried to investigate the underlying causes of the rash, not just my symptoms. Due to the physician’s reconnaissance nature, I was able to receive a correct diagnosis. Even though the rashes turned out to be from bed bugs’ bites, the physician’s approaches to medicine inspired and motivated me to further research the field of osteopathic medicine.
Now, it could have been an issue with dysmotility in the small bowel, but there are no good tests for that, so the team ordered a capsule-endoscopy to check the entire length of her alimentary canal and measure the time it took from mouth-to-anus, which would clue us in on motility issues. I got to discuss my ideas and hear theirs on the patient and I really enjoyed the team aspect of internal medicine. Unfortunately, my time ended with the service and I didn’t get to figure out if my suggestions proved if her diarrhea was factitious, or know the results of the capsule-endoscopy or colonoscopy, but I still appreciate the openness of the team to my ideas and that these ideas turned into action. One of the residents even chimed that this would be a great case report, so I should probably follow-up with them soon! In contemplating my experience, I recall stating my fear of things becoming too routine in my potential career in internal medicine or surgery,
