Doctors have determined that Harold is anemic. Describe this condition. What are the primary pieces of evidence from the CBC that point to this diagnosis?
Nurses are critical for promoting health in the society. The profession is highly flexible, since they specialize in diverse operations in the medical field. Registered nurses, for instance, are responsible for the administration of medicine and inoculations to patients (American Nurses ' Association, 2000). Additionally, these professionals observe, record, and enlighten doctors of any changes in a patient’s health. Nurses interpret and evaluate diagnostic examinations to determine an individual’s condition, as well as making the necessary adjustments in patient treatment plans on their health progress. In collaboration with other medical personnel, nurses engage in the development and enactment of patient care plans. Furthermore, they provide education to families and groups on various health issues such as disease prevention, among others.
A successful dissemination has three goals awareness, understanding, and action and specific strategies are used to reach targeted audience (Myers & Barnes, 2004). Awareness brings attention to the study or new practice to the maximum number of stakeholders. Understanding provides a rationale or purpose of the study or new practice and action demonstrates how the study was implemented and provides an evaluation report. Selecting one or more of these goals that are appropriate for the target audience will increase the likelihood that the new practice will be accepted by key stakeholders as well as influence and increase the motivation of other healthcare organizations to implement the practice (Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality [AHRQ], 2012). This paper provides a summary of strategies to disseminate the trial results of using alcohol disinfectant caps (ADCs) to prevent central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs) to key stakeholders over a 2-month period followed by dissemination to the greater nursing collective.
Week two has been a little more challenging versus week one. I was tempted with sweet tea several times which has made it more difficult. I truly expected it to be easier because I thought after the first week my body would start to adapt without the caffeine from sweet tea. This is not how I expected the assignment to go. I honestly thought I would not have any issues or have any withdrawal symptoms. I was not aware of how addicted I was to sweet tea. I am having more withdrawal symptoms this week than what I experienced in the previous week. Physically I feel more tired and have less energy throughout the day. I also am having a headache every day, that lasts all day. I can no longer have a sweet tea with lunch, which would give me that boost to get through the afternoon work day. I feel grumpy and irritable without the caffeine. I find myself craving sweet tea throughout the day. I supplement that craving with water, but it is not the same. This week has been a struggle. I am still thinking positively about this assignment, but I am more distraught this week versus the previous one. This
During Week One, the researcher met with the two focus groups to establish a different rapport and provide an explanation of the research study. Although the researcher had previously established a rapport with the students in each group, it was imperative that the students not view the researcher as one of their Assistant Principals while the study was being conducted. Once the researcher gauged the initial feeling tone towards the research project that had been presented to the focus groups, permission forms were sent home with each participant. Lastly, the researcher conducted an informal observation in both classrooms.
The Institutional Review Board (IRB) was given the opportunity to give independent and prospective review and approval prior to the study beginning. Participation was voluntary for the women applying for identification. They were informed they could withdraw at any time if they wanted to and that no harm would come to them from participating. There were no incentives to any participants for completing the questionnaire. Participants were informed their survey answers would remain confidential from anyone and that all necessary steps would be taken to ensure their confidentiality would be
counseling, where the co-leader can take a few minutes work on some better communication methods so that the client can learn some new and healthier methods to communicate. When the co-leader does not have a client to work with, the co-counselor can be part of the counseling process with the leader of the group.
The Week 4 assignments are addressed on how to use the observational tools in order to evaluate the development and create the activities that promote young children 's development. For example, assignment 4.3 Running Record is one of useful observational tools that educators can use. It requires sensitive observation and writing skills in order to collect detailed information. By using the running record, educator can use the data to evaluate the development of the child and create helpful activities that will help the development of the child.
A client had complete access to the information of another client, who is a prominent public figure. Merry Watson had complete freedom to read confidential information of another client.

Individuals make choices every day from the moment they wake up to the minute they go to sleep. People generate probability decisions on a daily basis without them realizing it. A few people elect to take a different route to work, hoping to encounter less traffic while others are conformable taking less risk as well as traveling familiar territory. Probability is the chance or likelihood of an event occurring (Mirabella, 2011). The focus will be on the various types of possibilities such as simple, joint, additional and conditional probabilities in answering five distinct practicability questions.
Even if they had maximum statin use, all of the patients had LDL over 70. Praulent was given to half of the patients and to the other half, placebo. It started at a lower dose and increased if the LDL of the patient did not go down below
Evidence-based practice is an all-around systematic approach to patient care that was built up on research and proven treatment results within nursing in order to increase the patient outcomes. Evidence based practice is define as “the integration of current evidences and practices to make decisions about patient care”. (Medical Surgical Nursing, 2018). Evidence-based practice not only includes the best proven research for practicing patient-centered care, but also merges the patient’s preferences and values into consideration. EBP developed by incorporating scientific research with clinical experience and patient preferences in order to reach they highest form of care possible with modern mediction. Today,
Vitamin K is a naturally occurring vitamin, a fat-soluble vitamin. It is recognized for its role in the process of formation of blood clotting ("K" is derived from the German word "koagulation"), it is essential for the functioning of many proteins that are involved in many physiological processes (Brody T, 1999). There are two forms of naturally occurring vitamin K that are known as vitamin K1 and vitamin K2 (Figure 1). Vitamin K1 or other name is phylloquinone is synthesized by plants and it is the predominant form in the diet. Vitamin K2 or other name is menaquinones includes a range of vitamin K forms. Most menaquinones are synthesized by the human intestinal microbiota and it is present in animal products
Vitamin b12 is mainly obtained from animals’ organ meats and their products. A lacto and lacto-ovo vegetarians include vitamin b12 in their diets through the consumption of diary products and eggs, while other vegetarians don’t. (Byrnes, 2002) The body requires vitamin b12 for several reasons mainly DNA synthesis which promotes red blood cell formation thereby energy production. This deficiency compromises DNA synthesis and so the red blood cells are immature and oversized and do not divide normally, causing them to function inefficiently causing anemia. This anemia is known as megaloblastic anemia and may develop pernicious anemia disease, which affects the digestive systems. (Higdon, Vitamin B12, 2000) Moreover, researches show that vitamin b12 deficiency damages the myelin sheath covering most nerves in the body. Myelin sheath is layer that surrounds the nerves for protection and support and a damage to this layer results in numbness and tingling of hands and feet as well as memory loss. (Higdon, Vitamin B12,
