' Practitioner can play a role in improving the quality of life of a terminally-ill patient in both pharmacological aspects and non-pharmacological aspects. After all, what remains in a patient 's mind is the care and love given by practitioner, not the medical information. Something as simple as a warm-hearted pat on the shoulder or a word of assurance can enlighten their day. If we can treat every patient wholeheartedly, as if he/ she is our friend, it makes significant difference in patient life. Conclusion Hepler & Strand define pharmaceutical care as the responsible provision of medicine therapy for the purpose of improving a patient’s quality of life.
Physicians ' punctuality is a fundamental aspect by the reason of being the building block for patient-doctor relationship and the cornerstone for professionalism. (1,2) Therefore, it illustrates the quality of training doctors received, and demonstrate how the health care is organized. Patient-doctor relationship is a prime concept when it comes to healthcare. In spite of the variation of the meaning or scope of the relationship according to the viewpoint of the observer, “clinical imperatives emphasize its value as a component of the care process that might improve health outcomes". Thus, patient-doctor relationship is a valuable concept for eliciting the quality of healthcare.
The authors argued that clinical supervision in healthcare professions enhanced personal development through eliciting a sense of self-confidence, enthusiasm, self-awareness and feeling supported in the workplace. The author explains that it reduces emotional baggage and the risk of burnout, increases job satisfaction and staff morale and finally, increases knowledge and awareness about solutions to possible clinical problem. Without these elements of progression, there would be minimum professional development. The evidence above however, is not specifically related to physiotherapists; therefore further research is needed to conclude these
It appeared to me when I was practicing in the National Center for Cancer Care and Research (NCCCR). Although my colleagues thought that it is depressing and mentally draining to work with patients with such a detrimental illness, I see it from a different angle. I believe that we, as healthcare professionals, are able and equipped to enhance the patients’ treatment journeys. Obviously, at the present time, there is no cure for each and every type of cancer. Therefore, we need to do our best to provide the best patient care possible and focus in alleviating the pain and suffer and improving patients’ quality of life.

Delivering the right care in the right place and at the right cost will be a deciding factor between organizations that thrive and decline in this new age of healthcare. The shift to value and affordability brings unique challenges and opportunities to healthcare providers, payers and patients. Micro hospitals seem to be a natural innovation in these changing times, but time will tell if they can deliver on their big hopes of value and
The score of my baseline clinical leadership survey indicates that I exhibit decent clinical leadership in my nursing practice, but I feel that this survey does not cover all the qualities and behaviours that make a successful clinical leader. The LPI indicates that I need major improvement to my “encouraging the heart” practice; I would really like to learn how to improve in this area as it seems like a fairly simple thing to do, yet I fail to do it in my nursing practice. I would also like to continue to build upon areas where I currently demonstrate strengths, as excellence in clinical practice is necessary to be an effective leader. Specifically I would like to focus on ways to improve upon my reflective practice techniques, and ability
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.
Complexity is not about giving a solution to the present issue but how team members manage the situation at hand. The team members understand that empathy and genuineness to help their clients or patients is the number one priority and because of this, they are willing to help out other teams so that they accept change and not oppose against it. Aside from complexity and change, the healthcare organization should also instill innovation among teams. Innovation such as adapting ideas from other teams so that communication will always be good and
Technology is necessary in medicine. The legacy of technology in the medical field is simple: more lives are saved with better methods. As professor Ralph Merle of Communications college of arts and sciences says “ If we can reduce the cost and improve the quality of medical technology through advances in nanotechnology, we can more widely address the medical conditions that are prevalent and reduce the level of human suffering.” However, many people believe that technology is bad for our health including the eyes. The problem with this belief is that it has caused a misunderstanding in the benefits of technology as there is a potential to improve eyesight using them. On the article “UR Technology to Enhance Eyesight Approved by FDA” by the
Morehouse School of Medicine is an appealing option for pursuing my medical education. When reading Morehouse’s mission statement, improving the health and well-being of individuals and communities grasped my attention. My clinical experiences revolve around communities that are underserved, and sharing the same mission as Morehouse is key to becoming the physician I aspire to be. One of the things that stood out to me about Morehouse is the student run Good Samaritan Health Center. I am very interested about being involved with God Samaritan, because it is akin to the Siloam Family Health Center that I volunteer at, and it is an embodiment of Morehouse’s mission.
