The literature offers a variety of definitions for the term evidence-based practices (EBP). One description of EBP is that it can be used as a decision-making process which is supported by the best available evidence and professional judgement. Gibbs (2003) and Gambrill (2001) refer to this as a framework or model that is more than the use of research-supported interventions because it embodies a comprehensive approach to practice. Adopting such an approach provides practitioners with the freedom to choose interventions that have available evidence for decision-making, rather than making intervention decisions on the basis of other criteria. Alternatively, evidence-based practice is used to refer to specific interventions that have been reviewed and met a level of evidentiary standard.
An organization’s ethical consideration is the ability and a mandate to follow a high standard and integrity of care in mundane processes and activities. In healthcare, trust is fundamental in delivery of care, services, and peace of mind. In patient care, focus on patient as a high priority, telling the truth and elimination of conflict of interest are principles which must reflect in all business facets. Whereas health is a right, moderating the four pillars of health (relieve, cure, prolong and improve) quality of life and provision of cost, efficient, effective care from providers is challenging (Gawande, 2009). Ideally, services, reimbursement and ethics are conjoined.
The main purpose of the essay is to look at the meaning of privacy and dignity in the modern healthcare practice and discuss application of those principles in midwifery practice. The thesis will also explain the importance of privacy and dignity and the reasons for its advocacy but also the impetus to promoting application of those values in care. The concept of dignity and privacy is broadly researched, discussed and acknowledged as fundamental principle which must be protected and promoted. Despite that, dignity is something that is hard to restrict to one definition but rather is considerably associated with privacy, respect, autonomy and self-esteem. In fact, it depends on combination of self-esteem, self-confidence, identity and interaction with others, particularly on respect received from people.
Physicians are to respect the patient’s desires and respect their decisions (MissingLink, n.d.). Beneficence is action to benefit others. Meaning, physicians must act in the best interest of their patients and put the patient’s needs above their own. If patients lack the ability to make informed decisions, the physician must act to keep patients from making decisions that are not in their best interests (MissingLink,
The first commitment of an ethical physician is to the patient. However, money could prevent that commitment to the patient. Physicians might think that small improvements for clinical outcomes is not worth the money. When money is spent to make medical improvement, it should be based on medical care that would have a greater benefits or meaningful purpose. In order to improve the physician's choices, they should be taught to use social and individual resources for clinical interventions.
This assignment has impacted my perspective on evidence-based practice by helping me build clinical reasoning skills and knowledge of difference diagnoses that will enables me to apply the most high-quality and appropriate intervention strategies that is proven effective in improve patient’s treatment outcome.
Ethical decision making in a health care system is undertaken to enable health professionals to increase their awareness of ethical issues involved in their practice and to guide them in arriving at sound, justifiable decisions (Amado, 2004). In the clinical setting, it requires a trained sensitivity to make good ethical decisions to ethical issues and a practiced method for exploring the ethical aspects of a decision and weighing the
To improve on patients’ satisfaction, radiographers have to imbibe the right ethical attitude in their conduct while discharging duties.  Augustine Obi Okar(2015) found that there is a need for improved ethical/professional conduct of radiographers and general service delivery in the radiology departments of the hospitals to enhance patient satisfaction.  Ogbonnia Godfrey Ochonma et al (2016) suggested customer relations are sources of dissatisfaction. Providers of health care services and radiographers in particular need special orientation in customer relations to foster good patient satisfaction strategies.  Whitney L. Jackson (2012) in his article revealed that James Lipcamon, out-patient imaging services manager for East Cooper Medical Center in Mt.

When a patient realizes what are the potential negative outcomes he/she may face with, it would not be problematic for him/her to set priorities. This is why involvement in decision making should be used in a doctor’s office for the patient to be adherent to medical recommendations. In addition, this strategy considers patients as experts in their experiences which, in turn, gives recognition to patients (Pawlikowska et al.
Evidence based practice (EBP) is to demonstrate the best practice, which has been supported, with a clear rationale to back it up, while acknowledging the patient/clients best interest. In this professional outline it will be discussed why EBP is so important to start with student nurses career and continuing throughout the nursing career and the second main point will be on the impact it has on patient outcomes regardless of discipline. I believe if this mind set is instilled early in the nurses career the practice will evolve it a more proactive
Achieving stage 1 meaningful use The milestone system also ensured consistent results across RECs while encouraging creativity in the methods and means employed by a REC to best support their provider population (HealthIT, 2014). Objectives of RECs Under the HITECH Act of 2009, the specific objectives of the RECs are: • Provide training and support services to assist in EHR adoption. • Offer information and guidance with EHR implementation (but not to carry out such an implementation). • Give other technical assistance as needed in the implementation of health IT and its proper use as a meaningful way to improve care. • Outreach and education and EHR support (working with vendors but also help health care providers choose a certified EHR system (Hartzband, 2015).
