As I reflect upon my thoughts before my first rotation at the student health clinic, I remember feeling what I described as “cautiously excited.” I was looking forward to having the opportunity to gain experience in the clinical environment with real patients but was also hesitant due to the overwhelming realization that I still have so much to learn. Throughout my three rotations, I learned a significant amount about clinical decision making. However, I feel that the most valuable information that I have been able to extract from my three rotations lies within a newfound knowledge of myself and the people I have been surrounded with during this experience. The first and most obvious benefit of this experience is the time that it affords us to take various technical components of our physical therapy education that we have learned thus far and practice applying them in an organized clinical setting. This is vastly different than the role play opportunities we participate in during class with our classmates, who for the most part, are perfectly healthy.
PruittHealth Pharmacy is entering into to a relationship with Kaiser Permanente whereas PH will provide drugs, supplies and pumps to be administer to KP’s chemo patients, by KP clinical staff within the KP Chemo department. We are very excited about this opportunity as we believe that not only will this relationship generate revenue, it may also lead to other financial opportunities. That being said, this is new to us and we want to insure that not only is our pricing is robust, but we need a contract/LOA in which we can operate feasibly, protect our interests, and provide an easy out of the relationship does not work for us. Attached is an LOA to begin the relationship, while we work through a contract to solidify the arrangement. Can you
Patients dictated healthcare This assignment will discuss the The problem with patient satisfaction and safety , which could change Balancing the desire to practice the quality .It will focus on the process of change and growth to evidence-based practice and positive feedback from patients .

The technological advances are compatible within the hospitals, the human factors play a significant role to promote the hospital to public as an example: hospital with an excellent nursing crew and talent doctors will surely have a good reputation. Mary could target the advertising efforts towards the physicians who may be interested in utilizing the hospital. To mention the technology in advertising is very important because nowadays people have high trust in new technology more than handiwork, so, they will feel comfortable to that hospital due it care with new technology. Mentioning the efficiency of doctors and their scientific and practical testimony, and featuring the technical expertise, scientific evidence, and facilities to show the public that we have the best doctors with best technology. Using specialized publication magazine or journal, preferably health magazine that can reach the segment.
This clinical experience has really helped me to sharpen my communication skills and realize just how important it is to understand mental health. We are told multiple times in class that mental health issues can be seen on any floor and that is the truth. I’ve seen patients in my older adult clinical on the pulmonary floor suffer from issues that range from anxiety to bipolar disorder and depression. Being able to understand how to approach people that suffer from these types of illnesses, allows us, the nurses, to give the patient the best care that we can. It helps to build a trusting relationship and get to know them on a personal level.
This study is an open ended type of data collection. Case studies are often conducted in clinical medicine involving descriptive info about the person. For example, if a person was in the hospital for a particular reason that the doctor cannot yet identify, the patient may be asked a serious of questions about their health and activities to try and determine what is making them ill. The strength of performing a case study is that it allows a researcher to investigate a topic in much more detail than if they were dealing with large amounts of people. Case studies have been said to provide more of a realistic response than other types of methods.
Metaphors are used heavily in literature to describe and attribute meaning towards otherwise hard to describe objects and situations, as well as make comparisons and create a certain image. Medical metaphors do the same to describe diseases in a way which the general public can understand, but they have an even deeper impact as well. A study conducted in 2010 found that physicians use metaphors in almost 66% of conversations that they have when describing serious illnesses to their patients, and that the use of these metaphors truly enhanced the physician's ability to communicate (Casarett, 2010). These metaphors are used in order to relate the patients new feelings about an illness to feelings they already understand. Common medical metaphors
In short, this quote demonstrates a perspective stating that the medical world does not only include doctors, scientist, and nurses anymore. Instead the media has become involved to the point that it plays a key role when it comes to epidemics, therefore people need to work as a team to make the medical world stable and effective. Adults, children, people from high or low classes all matter; therefore everyone should work as a team creating an alliance when it comes to dealthy situations and or events that go on in the medical world. The bottom line is, when people are crystal clear about the most important priorities of the organization and the team they work with and prioritized their work around those top priorities, not only are they many times more productive, they discover they have the time they need to have a whole life. As human beings disasters often lead to kindness and group work, in the movie Contagion the higher class people such as, Government workers and scientist figure out that working as a team was going to shorten the time it would take to make an vaccine therefore, they communicate, share ideas, and all together work as a team to put an end to
Robinson et al. (2002) mentioned that APN with wide knowledge in disease progress, research, health promotion and prevention of major illness who are keen to share knowledge to patients will help patients to understand more about their conditions. Koh and Ang (2005) states that with comparison to the doctors, the APNs are more likely to spend extra time to educate patients on health promotion and life style changes and are proven with better compliance with treatments. Karnusammy (2006) also mention that in addition to educating the patient and nurse, the APN also actively involve with patients family and initiating discharge. Nurses will also gain more knowledge and build a positive relationship with the APNs.
I am now sufficiently fast in reading patient medical records as well as being able to recognise and interpret medical information. Through this task, I definitely learn a valuable skill and enhance my medical knowledge which would be beneficial for my professional career especially if I become a hospital pharmacy intern. It was also a good chance for me to have a chat with pharmacists in Ipswich hospital to learn more about a life of a clinical pharmacist. 2. What are some big obstacles you have had to overcome to get to where you are today?
Overcoming obstacles and improving myself through clinical experience, I learned of other essential qualities needed for success in the field. My greatest time of growth was during my junior residency in internal medicine. Working closely with physicians and developing a rapport with patients, I greatly enjoyed experiencing several areas of the field, from outpatient medicine to ICU to CCU. While the days were long and demanding, I left each night knowing that I had helped relieve my patients’ illness. That’s the reason I am only applying to Internal Medicine as my career; I am the type of person who has always had an acute awareness of other people’s suffering, which has led me to be an empathetic and caring physician.
When I interviewed Larnette Gonzales a Front Desk Coordinator at an emergency addiction center I was a bit eager to hear her concerns and opinions about working in a high paced medical environment. I learned that being a front desk coordinator is not a stress free career in an addiction healthcare setting, because you are dealing with many people with all sorts of mental and medical problems. I would have to say that Larnette has a lot of patience when it comes to the barriers she stated when the patient is being checked in with a family member or is still at the denial stage of their addiction. I did learn that in order for a hospital, clinic, or any health care environment the team leader of a Physician has to set the example for the rest of the staff to follow. For example, Larnette stated that they have weekly meeting and they are able to state their concerns without any harsh criticisms and the Physician tries to set up weekly lucheons, so that they can have a good work place and personal relationship with one another and come together as a family.
