In contrast to Yealland’s electric shocks, Rivers opted to talk to his patients and use a combination of talk therapy and transference in order to heal them. Rivers stressed the importance of acknowledging their feelings and that it was okay for them to feel empathy for their fellow countrymen. Rivers’ personalized way of treating his patients usually left them viewing him as either a father or mother figure (transference). Historically, Rivers’ methods of treating his patients were viewed more favorably than Yealland so that should tell the reader all they need to know about whose methods were more
IntroductionClinical empathy is an essential element of quality care and is associated with improved patient satisfaction, adherence to treatment, and fewer malpractice complaints. It has been suggested that in contrast to models of “detached concern,” physicians who attempt to understand what their patient is feeling and communicate their concern achieve a number of valuable outcomes for their patients and for themselves . Empathy in medicine is challenging though, because doctors are dealing with the most emotionally distressing situations–illness, dying, suffering in every form–and such situations would normally make an empathic person anxious, perhaps too anxious to be helpful . This painful reality may take its toll on these individuals
By using this system it eliminates mistakes or errors due to illegibility, dosage and frequency as this system would alert the prescribers for attention. This system also streamlines the whole process of getting the prescription to pharmacy, dispensing and obtain refills. Implementing this system had proven to be cost saving as it improved efficiency and help nurses to have an access for information on the medication fast and easy (Potts, 2004). The time that nurses spend in clarifications had greatly reduced and this allows nurses to focus more on patient’s care. As for private hospital we do practice cost saving and by recommending this system my organization would be able to achieve cost saving as well as incentives and improved efficiency in delivering high quality and safe care for our patients.
They are able to use secure messaging to ask point related questions and receive shorter response times than waiting on a phone calls. This method is efficient with the doctors as well, they are not being overloaded with incoming phone calls and patients avoid miscommunication or missed phone calls. Once they leave their doctor they are able to review doctors' notes in the case the patient did not remember what was discussed. Health information exchange has many benefits, however there are many challenges as well. HIEs have to select one or more vendor to deliver services in a successful manner.
“Most patients accept the doctor’s explanation of why they got sick in the first place, and even if they resist the recommended treatment, they at least believe their doctor has prescribed it in good faith and that it is not designed to hurt them. Doctors who deal with
We need to look at patient as multidimensional individuals and that doctor doesn’t treat disease but patient with disease. Equally all those section contribute to person wellbeing. For example, modern society and new life style increase medical problems such as drinking too much alcohol or problem with coping with stress at work or eating habits or street violence. Doctors are expected to know more and understand more from our social life while caring for our physical health. (Wolte, 2002).
When the team members collaborate, they are able to distribute the duties necessary for the care of each patient. This makes it easier to make service delivery efficiency because each health worker knows what role they play. An example is the vital role of drug dispensing. Only one person should take responsibility for such a task, to avoid over dosage or the scenario where a patient does not get their medication on time. Babiker et al.
Doctors are specialist with skills and are bound to exercise a standard of care that is required by a professional. Based on Hippocratic Oath, doctors always treat their patients with the best treatment and also preserve patient’s privacy. However, professionals that are in the medical line are being increasingly sued for negligence. On 29th December 2006, the test for medical negligence had been accepted by the Courts in Malaysia . It was generally known as the Bolam Test.
A clean environment promotes healing, but also offers a better place to work for everyone, creating a sense of cooperation. As we are probably aware, when tidying isn’t satisfactory, healthcare staff and patients endure and can even be put in danger. We look at this as a grave worry that isn 't trifled with. That is the reason we built up our work process that will have the hospital sparkling start to finish. The patient’s general fulfillment will increase while you appreciate the hazard lessesoning related with a happy and healthy
Three of those systems still are prevalent today. They are Dombal’s system for diagnosis of abdominal pain , Shortliffe’s MYCIN system for diagnosis of the causes of infections, treatment and education , and the HELP system for delivery of inpatient medical alerts . Most of the expert systems support deterministic reasoning, but some use fuzzy rules to support reasoning under uncertainty . medical expert systems are used successfully in disease diagnosis like cardiovascular disease, endocrine diseases, diabetes, tumour, etc.. From the literature, expert systems based on rules seem to be the most preferred to the researchers since they matches with the human’s natural reasoning process.
