This study provided invaluable information about the relationship between chronic diseases, and nutrition. It has also provided valuable information about the association between chronic disease and genetic and behavioral factors. According to the Harvard School of Public Health (n.d.), “more than 100 published research articles have been produced by scientists working with data from the study”. Some of the major nutrition findings that have stemmed from HPFS data
Carter’s unique research into AD by fighting not the genetic potential, which accounts for a small portion of patients, but by confronting the variances in ApoE, which account for over half of all AD cases, has provided a basis for developing effective treatment for AD. We published two papers on the topic, one in Neuron concerning the initial findings and one in Science about the pharmacological intervention. Dr. Carter’s work also was discussed in an article found in the Wall Street Journal entitled, “Attack on AD: Cancer Drugs Aid Symptoms.”
Introduction This essay is a reflective piece of writing about the critical indecent of a medication error that occurred during my placement. It is a very concise piece of writing due to limited word count of 1500 words. Duke and Appleton (2000) did a literature review and devised a framework of critical reflection, which illustrates eight stages as compare to Gibbs’s (1998) reflective model that consist of six stages. I chose Gibbs reflective model not only it is easy to comprehend but also to illustrate a critical incident.
For example field 21 Unit 1 Assignment For HI252 From Learline McGeeidentifies the ICD-9-CM codes which are for diagnostic purposes and field 24d are for both CPT/HCPCS codes and modifiers which are for procedures, injectable drugs, and more information, etc. Field 24E puts the related CPT/HCPCS codes to the diagnosis by adding a number (1, 2, 3, or 4) which show which code is with which procedure. So if I go to my primary care physician for a physical and during the physical he noticed I had high blood pressure so he prescribed me a medication plus needed lab work he would use this form for claims. Hospitals use the CMS-1450 form (UB-04) for both outpatient and inpatient services. Data elements are part of the fields for claim submission for Medicare Part A services.
However, previous publications on 3DEAUS have included only non-pregnant females , nulliparous females [11, 20] or post-partum females . Therefore, we feel that our data fills a niche in the assessment of primi gravida and would be useful for clinical and research centres worldwide. The EAS was consistently found to be thicker posteriorly and this may be due to the fact that only the internal part of the EAS encloses the entire circumference of the anal canal. The majority of EAS fibers merge with the transverse perinei muscles [20, 27].
It is evident that some professionals have sought out ways to reduce nursing theories and make them a thing of the past, but they are still highly regarded in professional healthcare. As noted by McCrae, “The Magnet Recognition Program (American Nurses Credentialing Center 2008) is an international accreditation of excellence in nursing, and a key requirement for organizations is to describe and implement a professional practice model” (p. 223). It is an aspiration of all hospitals to achieve Magnet recognition because of their nurses; this very achievement cannot be made without the hospital’s implementation of a professional nursing
In the editorial "The health crisis of mental health stigma," the editorial utilizes ethos pathos, and logos, to shed light on the crisis of mental health. According to the editorial mental health is not seen as a significant health issue as others are. This issue is overlooked by many peoples and doctors. The two strongest rhetorical appeals that this editorial uses and applies very well are ethical appeal and logical appeal. Also, manages to include an emotional appeal.
One problem most central to advancing our psychological understanding of the experience of intimacy has been in defining or circumscribing the phenomenon itself. While much has been written on the topic of intimacy in a variety of contexts by both academic and ‘popular’ authors, paradoxically, there exists less research (and even less concurrence) on essential matters such as the definition of intimacy (Register and Henley, 1992; 9: 467-48). “However, in the literature, many researchers (Berscheid, 1985; Hatfield & Rapson, 1993; Levine, 1991) have concurred that there are four main components of intimacy: love and affection, personal validation, trust and self-disclosure,” (Hook, Misty, Gerstein, et al .2003) which are enshrined in Rogers core conditions of empathy, respect and genuineness (Rogers, 1957). If these components are absent in a relationship, intimacy may not occur. “When people are aware that they are loved and liked, the risks associated with self-expression decrease, and they become more willing to open up and share their ideas and feelings.
Professionalism is the core value of any healthcare profession. According to the article written by McSherry, “Excellence in nursing care will only happen by ensuring that nurse managers, leaders and educators are able to respond to the complexity of reform and change by leading, managing, enabling, empowering, encouraging and resourcing staff to be innovative and entrepreneurial in practice” (Mc Sherry, Pearce, Grimwood, & McSherry, 2012, p. 7). McSherry’s article expressed the public’s deleterious views of nursing and the lack of empathy. Basis for these views stemmed from undesirable standards of patient care as a direct result of under staffing. The public unfortunately see’s negative before positive, therefore, exemplification of professionalism
He was an active member of the American Institute of Homeopathy and is quoted as saying, "Homeopathy is wholly capable of satisfying the therapeutic demands of this age better than any other system or school of medicine." "It is imperative that we exhaust the homeopathic healing art before resorting to any other mode of treatment, if we wish to accomplish the greatest success possible." (Menninger, 1897) Davidson has noted that there are similarities between modern psychiatry and homeopathy. Recent neurobiological research tends to validate old homeopathic concepts. Psychotherapeutic techniques tend to elicit the patient's symptoms, in a controlled manner, in order to heal the patient.
A Chi-Square test for independence contains two variables that are categorical, the independent variable in the column and the dependent variable in the row, within the cells are frequency of responses (Salkind, 2013). The goal of a Chi-Square for independence is to test if there is a relationship or association between two categorical variables (Salkind,
Holland rise health and social care trust are two organizations who provide social benefits to associated regions. (Holland rise Health and social care trust Background, Case study p-2).The unification of these two organization resulted in several presumptive concerns for the management. According to the case study of Holland rise and health care background, it has been stated that there are other nine community trusts along their area but none have the progressive thinking as them (Line 3 paragraph 4) H and S, background page 3). Additionally, the main gist of these organization is the care delivery process whereby, conflict of interest among H&S and other 35 hospitals has resulted in trust issues for H&S .
However, in the story it did not end up as expected. A tragic consequence that had a huge possibility that it could have turned out differently makes it especially so. Looking back on how old this book was written, there are several changes that are embraced within the medical arena with respect to cultural diversity. Demographic differences are now given weight as well as spirituality which is reckoned to be essential especially to the holistic approach to providing healthcare, one that embraces the mind, the body and the
The guidelines were developed by reviewing published meta- analysis and systematic reviews making it the strongest evidence however, the method used to formulate the recommendations was that of a level I to an expert consensus which is a level IV. The guidelines were validated by an external peer review. All recommendations for this guideline was tagged by the level of evidence and linked with scientific evidence. The limitation that were evident in this study was that its intended users were immediate healthcare providers in the hospital settings and not those in the out- patient healthcare
