The could also be barriers in patient’s cognition, making it difficult for them to follow through on the goals of CCM.

This is because the technical aspect involves the giving of diagnosis and it is when missed diagnoses are given that patients are put to harm. The Emergency Department is one which is tasked to give correct and timely diagnoses (Kachalia et al, 2007) and that in the steps taken in the ER such as consultations, admissions and discharge, utmost care should be given so as to avoid malpractice which could lead to lawsuits. Errors in the Emergency Room arise when a doctor gives a wrong diagnosis after misjudgment of symptoms (Tibbles, 2011) and these may be caused by unavailability of timely information, or late access to lab
Stroke and carotid revascularization procedures were noted. # McEvoy’s study. In McEvoy’s study the follow up was scheduled at 90 days and 18 months in 2000 patients. Medication datas for statins, antihypertensives and oral hypoglycemic drugs were collected. Revascularizations, secondary test referrals and cardiac events like cardiac death, unstable angina requiring hospitalization and nonfatal myocardial infarction were documented at both 90 days and 18 months.

Therefore, the role of primary doctors should be gatekeeping instead of adding burden to other health service system Apart from the above-mentioned, primary care doctors can direct patients to the best place for their treatment.

I, like some of the companies referred to in the paper always lumped both together. It is many times useful to break things down clearly into congruent units so it is more feasible to understand the issue and proffer relevant workable solutions. Meanwhile, as mentioned in the paper, such hairsplitting difference is not a usually a concern for an organization looking to make a change or improvement. While I think this understanding would be good to help in hospitals or clinics to deal with the opioid crisis. I believe that even if the hospital leadership are able to understand the climate and culture theory, it would be very difficult for them to translate to nurses, physicians and other professionals who already have a professional and organizational culture they are used to.
Another challenge is to provide care that is respectful of and responsive to patient preferences, needs, and values.

It is important for health care professionals to understand the disadvantages of informed consent just as much as the advantages so that they can prevent these drawbacks, if possible. The disadvantages I will be discussing in this section is the act of coercion and undue influence, emergency situations and special circumstances where informed consent does not apply, and therapeutic privilege. When informing patients about their care options, the health care provider may be convinced that one way is the best and may inadvertently pressure a patient to make a different decision than they originally
