Patient Safety in Obstetrics and Gynecology ABSTRACT: Since publication of the Institute of Medicine's landmark report To Err is Human: Building a Safer Health System, emphasis on patient safety has steadily increased. Obstetrician–gynecologists should continuously incorporate elements of patient safety into their practices and also encourage others to use these practices. ______________________________________ The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) is committed to improving quality and safety in women's health care.
It was evident that an application of the theory of self-care deficit could help in the determination of Jonathan’s self-care requisites, an ability that turned out to be helpful in providing care comprehensively. Applying the theory depicted the extent to which the supportive, educative and compensatory system could be applied in helping solve the issues in a patient suffering from rheumatoid arthritis. My personal philosophy of care when dealing with my patients enabled me to address Jonathan’s case well giving it the attention it deserved. Through teamwork (one of my principles) with my colleagues including the physicians, we managed to identify the precise health issue and recommend the appropriate plan of action. I also believe that having maintained good health on my part helped me in dispensing the best possible care to

As physiotherapists, we should use the motivational interviewing strategy to understand our patients needs and desires and then to put a tailored plan in place. Physiotherapists need to recognise the importance of using motivational interviewing to drive behaviour change. The use of open and closed questions, reflective listening and positive body language will show real and genuine appreciation of the patient’s struggles and difficulties. Summarising at the end of an appointment is also a fundamental step in establishing high adherence. This will enable a patient to listen to their own story and to show that the physiotherapist has understood what the patient is going through.
Moreover, thanks to the publications of IOM the attention to patient safety has been drawn to the general public. The researchers also point out that the positive impact of the Institute of Medicine lies, obviously, at least in two aspects: awareness of the problem to prevent medical errors, attracting the support of stakeholders and changes in practice. The consequence of this was the creation of the Agency of Healthcare and
Reflection, as expressed by Daly, Speedy, and Jackson, "...means to bend or turn backwards." (2014). This leads readers to the understanding of reflection being a critical thought technique of retreating over something after it has as of now happened. The utilisation of reflection to a practice-based discipline, for example, nursing has various critical advantages. Reflective practice is an extremely valuable method for health professionals to guarantee the prosperity of a diverse scope of patients and to enhance the way health professionals work by aiming to make a more proactive and qualified proficient (Dawber, 2012).

How do we as a society determine high health standards? As Watson described in her theory there are contributing factors based on an overall physical, mental and social functioning of well-being. Physically we can encourage and teach patients to exercise and eat healthy but is that the passage to achieving optimal health. As a personal trainer, I live by the importance of exercise and nutrition but as a nursing student and through life experiences I have come to realize the importance of mental and social health. A physical assessment of a patient is completed much like a head to toe assessment, the hospital staff is tasked with treating or medicating the patient to control the physical symptoms.
• Apply relevant findings/evidence from research to develop practice guidelines to improve clinical practice and practice environments (Therapeutic Interventions, “Effective Communication in a Variety of Modes,” Essential III). • Disseminate findings from evidence-based practice to improve clinical outcomes. (Communications, “Ethics and Social Justice,” Essentials III, VI, VII). Student learning Outcomes: Upon completion of the clinical applications of evidence-based practice course student will be able to: • Describe evidence-based practice (EBP) to include the components of research evidence, clinical expertise, and patient/family values.
“Ow! My knee! I think I need to go see a physical therapist.” This is an example of one of the many reasons people go to see a certified physical therapist. “Physical Therapists, sometimes called PTs, help injured or ill people improve their movement and manage their pain” (Bureau 1).
