It trains health care providers to overcome cultural barriers like communication and language. Cultural competency has the potential to reduce inequities in access to health care services and improve the health status of cultural communities by reducing healthcare disparities. The goal of cultural competency is to provide health care to the community that is respectful of and responsive to the needs of diverse patients. It helps the health care provider to understand the needs of patients while seeking treatment. It helps to patient-provider to meet on common ground in the diagnosis and treatment plan of the disease.
Then, the court can deal with more important issues, and the efficiency of the court will be improved greatly. Thus, I think that time saving should be considered as an advantage of the tort reform. Tort reform has influence not only on the court and victims, but also on clinicians and medical field. Many health providers and clinicians are in favor of the tort reform (Santiago, 2016). The tort reform make clinicians have no full responsibilities to compensate for the malpractice, and they will not need pay for the cost.
The primary reason why the managed care model was created to provide satisfactory and best healthcare to all the enrollees at reduced and controlled cost and its aims to ensure that the healthcare provide a suitable medical condition of the patient and safeguarding such services are provided by appropriate provider. Its emphasis on keeping enrollees healthy to reduce use of services. The two types of Managed Care is Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) the other one is Point of Service (POS) plans. The difference with the PPO is that this is not a restricted as the HMO plan and allows people to approach providers outside of the network. This comes with higher reimbursement, and lower copayments and lower deductible unlike the HMO.
To enhance the system of health care, a just culture needs implemented. A just culture encourages an environment that pinpoints problems for improvement, rather than just seeking blame. Furthermore, an overview of the risk management process and its five components will illuminate the importance of identifying, analyzing, prioritizing, and monitoring risks. The risk management process combined with a just culture will promote best practices for an improved health care system with reduced or eliminated errors. Just Culture Risk managers that support a just culture, realize that people make mistakes and punishments seldom resolve problems.
Instead we should be advocating patients to practice healthy lifestyle and aware of any potential health risks in daily life. Prevention of diseases is of most importance, preventing infections by practicing basic hygiene can lower the burden to the entire health care system and prevent unnecessary expense of patients. Practicing healthy lifestyle such as exercising at least 30 minutes everyday and controlling diets can help to lower the risk of having chronic illnesses in the late years, which can ease a large portion of public hospitals. Other than that, doctors should also aware of any social or mental difficulties of patients, which may be the underlying cause or hindering factors for patients to comply with treatment. If doctors observe patients have financial or social difficulties, they can advocate patients to seek help from medical social workers, this is beneficial to both patients and the whole health care
The Common Good Approach is a type of Consequentialist that suggest that ethical actions are those that benefit all members of the community. An example of this is to all include effective just legal system, and public safety. I believe if something is good for one person its good for another regardless, even though common good consequentialist can be unfair to certain extent I believe its a fair way of determine what’s best for everyone. This approach might not be the best for because of my future interest in medicine, but as it
Health promotion as well as disease prevention are the main themes in the healthcare sector and general medicine. Though efforts have been concentrated on the young and mothers, there is a need to have an all inclusive approach if healthcare is to achieve the intended goals. With the increase in prevalence of chronic and multiple chronic illnesses, promotion of health and disease prevention approach is the only promise to reduce the incidence and prevalence of diseases. However, it is important to understand the various health concerns that are within the different age groups. In order to distinguish between the various healthcare requirements in these age groups, there are various theories that can be used.
keleher& C MacDougall).According to social ecological point of view high light that health elevation and community improvement in vital role of health determinant is played for decrease social imbalances and prejudice with community commitment and connecting empowerment of individual and communities (H. keleher& C MacDougall). Both comprehensive and selective primary healthcare performance underlying social, economic and political source of poor health and considering health status to helping that treatments and management of disease and prevention by selective primary health care goal. Health literacy, health education, cognitive behavioural said that empowerment reflect broad view of people own health. Australian medical research develops good but in clinical practice slowly outcomes and current health system has much strength but far short of ideal. (S Duckett & S. Willcox).
As a consequence, persuasive health communication does not only focus on promoting healthy, but also discourages unhealthy behaviors. Both objectives can be achieved by framing: a communication strategy used for designing persuasive messages from a particular perspective (Pelletier & Sharp, 2008). A type of framing that has been extensively applied in health communication, is gain- and loss-framing. These gain- and loss-framed messages either underline a potential gain or a potential loss respectively (Kahneman & Tversky, 1979). A gain-framed message highlights the benefits of engaging in a behavior (e.g.
Only through a deeper understanding of the intricate factors shaping behavioural practices can health promotion programmes and or interventions successfully be introduced into the realities of the people’s lives to bring about changes in health behaviour. Behaviour change theories and models such as the Health Belief Model (HBM), Theory of Reasoned Action (TRA), Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB), and the Transtheoretical Model have been widely applied in public health in an attempt to explain or predict health seeking behaviours. Their use enables identification and understanding of people’s health-seeking behaviour beyond their knowledge, attitudes and practices. HBM is a health specific behavioural cognitive model The model is based on the idea that people are more likely to change their behaviour and adhere to treatments if: (i) they perceive that they are at risk of contracting the disease (perceived susceptibility), (ii) they perceive the disease might have an unfavourable outcome (perceived severity), (iii) they perceive the proposed health behaviour to be both effective and practical (perceived benefits), (iv)they perceive the barriers to adopting the behaviour to be minimal (perceived barriers),(v) they perceive themselves to have the ability of applying and practicing the specific behaviour proposed
