Doctors and physicians have more and better knowledge than normal people about human body and they are able to assist their patients while making tough decisions. However, they can not always make the right decision. Doctors can not predict the result of a surgery or a treatment and they do not have enough confidence of the result because sometimes the surgery could go in a way they didn’t expect. Although patients have the right to decide their treatments, doctors and patients should share
Introduction People hope and seeks long and healthier lives. Thus, health care is the act of taking preventative or necessary medical procedures to improve people well-being. Improvement or preventative may be done with surgery, the administering of medicine, or other alterations in a person 's lifestyle. These services are usually offered through a health care system made up of hospitals and physicians. Although, the health care system is set up to reduce or to prevent disease etc., there is a gap or disparity in the US health care system.
It seems like most the time when entering our primary care physician’s office, it is not the doctor we get to see. Due to the physician shortages, most of the time, we mainly see the physician assistant. Physician assistants have all the qualifications for diagnosing illnesses and developing treatment plans. According to Smith-Barrow, Physicians Assistants can do many of the same things that a general practice physician can.
Final Self-Assessment During the FNP III rotation, the student has seen many patients who have complex chronic illnesses than other two rotations that she completed for the FNP I and FNP II courses. The student had many opportunities to independently interview and exam the patients, then come up with differential diagnoses and treatment plan based on the pertinent and impertinent information and evidence-based practice. The preceptor, Dr. Jeanne-Elyse Cedeno, a medical physician/owner of the clinical site, always encouraged the student to think as a primary care provider in many ways. In this paper, the student is going to discuss the progress of the eight objectives (see Appendix A for details), discuss her personal growth and development in the nurse practitioner role, provide the information on what she learned in the clinical that will be valuable to her future practice, and describe any missed opportunities that she did not get out of this experiences as expected, discuss for areas of improvement in the future clinical rotation, and the summarize the final evaluation with her preceptor.

According to Garment (2013), “The American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC) estimates that the U.S. will face a physician shortage of over 90,000 physicians by 2020; a figure that’s expected to reach over 130,000 by 2025” (p.4). The increasing amount of money required for health care services from a physician is a driving force to pursue alternative ways of receiving primary care. According to The American Association of Nurse Practitioners (2013), “NPs in a physician practice potentially decreased the cost of patient visits by as much as one third, particularly when seeing patients in an independent, rather than complementary, manner” (p. 2). NPs are maintaining the standard of care and for a lesser amount for patients to pay. Mid-level practitioners are completing the same amount of work and improving the quality of care.
A considerable number of people believe that the diagnosis and treatment of health problems are beneficial to improving and maintaining overall health, but too much dismay, there are also potential harmful affects with this type of medical practice (Martin, 2017). The practice of overtreatment and overdiagnosis is a prominent issue within the healthcare system. One of the main reasons that healthcare providers and their patients feel the need to treat and diagnose each health problem, big or small is that society has a compulsion to cure. Healthcare providers conform to the idea of compulsion to cure because amongst other reasons, they fear litigation and disappointing patients if they choose against conducting tests in order to diagnose and

They require information and abilities which permit them to capacity viably in an element health awareness environment. The physician assistant is an agent of the doctor, treating the patient in the style and way created and coordinated by the managing doctor. The responsibility of the physician assistants in the conveyance of consideration ought to be characterized through commonly settled upon rules that are produced by the doctor Physician Assistants have awesome appreciation for the profundity of preparing gotten by doctors and recognize doctors as the best-instructed and generally complete suppliers on the medicinal services group.
They must ensure that they are providing adequate services to patients and at the same time ensuring that insurance companies are getting paid (Saint Joseph’s University, 2011, Para 6). Along with that they must secure that they are getting paid. Furthermore, physician moral and ethics are challenged as well; Thus, causing them to rethink how they take on their responsibilities as a medical care provider by trying to keep patients best interest, insurance companies interest and their own interests. This conflict with trying to meet the needs of several different stakeholders causes strain on the physician because they must walk fine line to please each. While trying to please a specific stakeholder another holder could be compromised.
Primary care clinics are seeing a-lot of newly insured patients through the primary care clinics and as a result they are having a shortage of providers. As this cycles through patients begin waiting long times to see physicians and waiting months for appointments. It will be essential for healthcare providers to use creative strategies to incorporate prevention while also addressing the immediate needs of the millions of Americans who will be entering the healthcare system.(Lathrop,2014.) Health care providers and other members of the interdisciplinary team will have to come together to self-care-education sessions, and the use of informatics to track the frequency of routine health screenings are strategies that can help to meet preventive
Gatekeeping in terms of the healthcare sector has been debated throughout the years on whether the process has resulted in the contribution to the improvement of healthcare of a population. The term, gatekeeping is defined as the general public having to go through ‘doors’ in the health care system. This means that referral is required from primary care sectors such as General Practitioners (GP) being the first point of contact, in order to have authorised access to receive secondary and/or tertiary care sector service, these services include specialists such as dermatologists, cardiologist and oncologist. The idea of gatekeeping was originally developed to control the amount of money that is spent on healthcare and as a response to the shortage
Subsequently, more emphasis is placed on the importance of expanding patients’ knowledge of the treatment that they are to receive and how to refine their self-care and management for the future. This can potentially improve the day-to-day lives of both the patient and medical staff. As the well-known Chinese proverb states: “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a
The farmers and the poor always are unable to get the sufficient health care. Secondly, the problem is the imbalance of illness 's prevention between medical resources. For a long time, prevention approaches are not well implemented, cure light-proof and lack of government investment in public health and public health system is weak. This situation seriously limited the capacity of service and did not achieve the desired benefits of disease prevention
