The study could not find a large variety of sources that studied telephone follow-ups. I believe that future research in the effects of timing of phone calls could be beneficial. Also, research that could quantify what defines the effective aspects of a patient follow up telephone call immensely improve our ability to assess the effectiveness of follow-up calls on patient teaching. Although, the literature could not find many studies on the benefits of telephone follow-ups its benefit was evident and its potential to evolve into a definitive asset for patient teaching and
Practice fusion could be good for the medical offices and hospitals. Practice fusion allows the medical practice to do so much with patient care. One item I find good is to input patient photo with the name. This would decrease patient error but the downfall would be if patients are willing to have their photo attached to the medical record. On the other hand, long term facilities like nursing homes and assisted living communities would not benefit from it.
Psychotherapy should not be eliminated for mental patients; both medication and therapy should be used for helping the patient. The medicine should help control the patient 's problem, but not their attitude, however psychotherapy helps the problem being dealt with and their attitude. Psychotherapy also helps the patients express themselves; meanwhile the medicine prescribed to these patients will make them quiet, sleepy and sometimes even give them a depression. Long since World War 1 much research has been done into whether mental patients should have medicine or psychotherapy. Most researchers think medicine can take over the job of therapy.
Nonetheless, it’s vital to discuss this with your doctor whether you’re suffering from a medical problem or not. It’s only logical to discuss your medical state with your physician before making an appointment with a plastic surgeon. More importantly, CoolSculpting should not be treated as a treatment for obesity because it’s definitely not. What it can do is help remove tiny fractions of excess fat that’s too stubborn to get rid of despite changing your ways health-wise. Bottom Line If you’re physically qualified to undergo this procedure, meaning you have your doctor’s go-ahead, CoolSculpting can be more effectual compared to other fat-removal treatments.
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.
Bill reported that he believes Pa needs a medication review and a change in meds. Because the medication that supposed to help with her outbursts and combative behavior is not as effective anymore. He reported that Pa fell on 11/11/15 but did not need medical treatment because she did not sustain any injuries (just soreness). The SC inquired about Bill handle his frustration and when Pa becomes abuse or combative and he state he just deals with it because he loves her “and no matter what that’s his wife and he’s going to do right by her” so he talks to
I did some research on this and I haven’t really found much that suggests that anyone is seriously considering the use of the Fitbit with the elderly (more than likely because the technology isn’t as advanced as it could be and the elderly don’t tend to wear bulky watches), but I think once the technology improves it could be a great tool for doctors, nurses, and hospice. The watch could be used to monitor heart rate and health stats remotely in nursing homes, hospitals, or other assisted living situations. Currently, it can still be used to do that for families’ to monitor their seniors’ activity but with the state of the current technology that is as far as its use can go other than just to monitor general activity. The GPS on the Surge could also be modified and used to track location of the elderly for when they get lost in the stores, escape from the nursing home, or drive off on their own without telling you where they went
“The approach is described as “integrative” when different art techniques are intentionally used in combination with traditional medicines to promote improved health.” Like any treatment, there are limitations to expressive therapy in treatment and intervention. While expressive therapies have been applied to all age groups, to most mental and therapeutic issue, and to diverse settings, there are customers who may not benefit by these modalities for different reasons. In the first place, a few people, often adults, might be unwilling to take part in an expressive modality in treatment since they believe that they are not "innovative" or can't create something that is "imaginative." Therapists starting expressive activities as interventions may furthermore experience resistance to engage by clients who see themselves as unfit to utilize imagination, who are on edge about self-expression, or who are impervious to active participation. Moreover, and ironically, those individuals with wide involvement in art, music, or dance will not be able to give up on learned rules about self-expression and might be repressed in their spontaneity in therapy when requested to express themselves in a specific
Patients reported not feeling informed or prepared to go home and successfully continue to heal without relapse or secondary issues. The nurses surveyed from the lung unit also stated that the discharge process was unstructured. Researchers did not find any supporting EBP guidelines to follow for discharging lung patients home, only that discharge instruction should be structured and comprehensive. Researchers worked with the nurses to develop a discharge protocol specific for lung patients using best current research available, nurse expertise, patient perspective and patient feedback. This intervention was only partially met, while the feedback was positive from the discharged patients it was clear that the nurses had difficulty applying EBP steps, suggesting a possible need for a simplified version.
It is important to understand, though, that depression is not a condition that people can successfully overcome themselves. Depression is a real medical disorder, like anorexia, epilepsy, and autism. It is strongly recommended that people who suffer from depression for long periods of time get professional help. To date, relatively few studies have focused on the effects of dance/movement therapy on people with depression. However, the results have pointed in a positive direction.
Hello class, When taking patients reproductive history as a medical assistant I will stay very professional and respectful. Some patients might not feel comfortable releasing private information to you therefore you should assure them that whatever information they disclose to you will be use only for health reason. Make the patient feel comfortable. Some of the questions that you will ask them can make the patient feel embarrassed or uncomfortable because the patient doesn 't want for her private life to be known. Depending on the patient I will try to help them understand that what am asking is not to be nosy but to help the doctor better serve them.
Theory in Research Southern New Hampshire University Daneen Breitenbach Nursing 506 Theory in Research Article Reflection According to Marchant (2014) in an article entitled "Neonates do not feel pain: A critical review of the evidence," Marchant provides evidence for and against the hypothesis "Neonates do not feel pain." The neonatal nervous system was considered to be underdeveloped and up until 1985, clinicians did not think it was possible for neonates to experience pain. Advances in neonatal research, however, have demonstrated that newborns do in fact experience pain and controlling that pain can have both short and long term benefits. Neonatal pain or discomfort occurs during patient care, moderate, and severe invasive procedures. There is no known direct biological marker of pain, just behavioral and stress-related physiological correlates (Marchant, 2014).
