These two models are working in conjunction with each other. Many people disregard the medical model and it is understandable, however different disabilities have different needs therefore the medical model can’t just be disregarded. The medical model needs to be involved in a person with disability’s life for example; if someone was to get depression, you would need anti-depressants as well as counselling. These sources of help are given by the medical model. However if someone was a wheelchair user and they could not get around the shopping centre, this is societies fault because the shopping centre is not adapted to accommodate everyone, whereas the medical model would try “fix” the individual rather than the shopping centre.
Kum Martin outlines the challenges that are faced by families and patients in “Some Disadvantages of Hospice Care”. Martin reviews the difficult facts that the family might experience while they are left helpless and ultimately responsible for their family members’ end of life care. Martin asserts that families are faced with providing care and need to stop everything else they are doing in order to care for their loved one. Providing round-the-clock care can be difficult, as many patients who chose hospice are no longer eligible to receive care at the hospital. This means they must be discharged and return home (Martin).
Staff idealism With noble idealism of that doctors must do their duty of saving life and put the best interest of patient in mind, doctors will reconsider if their behaviors are in accordance to their own idealism. Although staff idealism cannot be created or imposed by managers, it does exist in organizations (Weinbach and Taylor, 2008), including hospitals. Serving as motivations, good idealism held by staff members can help to reduce the possibility of corruption. Managers must make sure that in the hospital, no one is laughing at those doctors who stick to their idealism and refuse corrupting, and reward those who have a strong sense of personal idealism. i.
Right eating habit mentioned in Ayurveda There are a lot of mistakes we tend to make when it comes to eating food properly. Since most of the doctors only know how to treat the illness but not its cause, you need to take the matter in your hands and take proper diet. Ayurveda talk about the process of eating food as something divine, if we do not respect the food we eat, we will not be able to respect our bodies. The food has an immediate effect on our body. It is also known that the body’s biochemistry changes when we eat food properly.
Intrinsic Motivation: Doctors with higher intrinsic motivation – those who rank “helping the poor” as the most important job attribute – showed more interest in selecting the rural postings. Unless the concept of public health is included in the medical education curriculum, the problem cannot be solved. The current medical education has kept the student and doctors away from the public system. EXTERNAL FACTORS: 1. Policy 2.
As a second limitation the actual pharmacotherapeutic complications due to the potential food-drug interactions were not evaluated. As a third limitation, this study was conducted in one inpatient teaching hospital and the results may differ from the results of studies in other centres. Future studies are warranted to further evaluate the real outcome of food-drug interactions. Moreover, future research to consider the knowledge of physicians, pharmacists, nutritionists and nurses about the food-drug interactions is recommended. Communicating with nurses seems to be an effective ways to preventing food-drug interaction interactions.
Organizational barrier - To convince the panel of directors in the health care organization, to fund for Telehealth technologies (as not every patient pays for them, nor every physician in the hospital utilise them) and to show them positive benefits from it is a major challenge. Implementation of telehealth infrastructure can be costly, time consuming and complicated initially. 2. Physician engagement - Physicians often resist acceptance of new technology and complain about lack of hands on interaction with patients with Telehealth. According to Gustke et al (2000), fear of malpractice suites is another consideration for physicians.
Moreover, enforcement of the social policies also depends on the voluntary cooperation of the citizens. The state will be unable to provide health care services if the citizens are not willing to maintain a healthy diet with respect to their own health (Kymlicka, 2002, p.285 ). Consequently, social policies to meet the need of the child, disable, women and elderly cannot be effective if the citizens are not willing to share this responsibility by providing some care for their relatives. In Bangladesh there are more than two hundred environmental laws and several policies for the protection of the environment. But environmental destruction is increasing day by day.
In many cases, one’s health reflects their everyday life choices, not making healthy food choices first, which must be prioritized before any material things, is not often the case. Some people can not always afford healthy food, but this is overwhelmingly apparent because their health is not their first priority. In retrospect, many people who develop health diseases or problems
- Why is it important (outcomes) Health Literacy is important as limited health literacy is related with poor health. Some examples include Use of preventive services, Knowledge about medical conditions and treatments, Rates of hospitalization, Health status, Healthcare costs and Stigma and shame. Elaborating on the Use of preventive service, individuals who have very little health literacy would usually avoid going for check-ups to prevent themselves from falling sick. For example, skipping appointments to get a flu shot, and they would only enter the healthcare system when they fall ill. Another point is Knowledge about medical conditions and treatment, where persons who have little knowledge of health literacy are more prone to having chronic conditions because of lack of knowledge of illness. These people would also most likely not know how to manage such conditions.
