This research may also contribute to and support capacity building and sustainability for researchers, decision-makers, regulatory bodies, employers and provider groups as well as others, in their journey toward high-functioning interprofessional collaborative teams. This study will focus on individual healthcare practitioners in maternal newborn and low-risk obstetrical service delivery. Identifying barriers to interprofessional collaborative practice may result in positive changes to the delivery of low-risk obstetrical care. Positive changes may include better cooperation, mutual trust, communication and a focus on shared knowledge and decision-making.
P3 research: I will now compare different research methodologies for health and social care. There are two types of research that are commonly used when research projects are being taken out, which aim to benefit health and social care related services. These two types of research are called quantitative research and qualitative research. The difference between these two is how they collect the information they need in different way and use different kinds of sources, but both benefit the health system. Without research being carried out medical professionals/and laboratory scientists would not be able to provide us with improved medications that can improve our health.
The biomedical model feels that health professionals should use scientifically tested methods to diagnose and cure disease. This is because it will be more likely the patient’s health will improve as they will be sure their method is reliable as it has been tested. The biomedical model feels that disease
While members of the Jordan Lab may have distinct reasons for pursuing pediatric research, ranging from the Principle Investigator’s goal of bettering the lives of children with histiocytic disorders to the undergraduate student’s goal of learning how basic science research is conducted, all members are ultimately committed to advancing a specific field of medicine. Furthermore, this central goal is made available to the general public. Dr. Jordan’s faculty profile on CCHMC’s website explicitly states that his research interests are “better understanding histiocytic disorders and developing novel therapies for them, regulation of the immune response, and the immunotherapy of cancer” (cite). This means that researchers funded by his lab will conduct focused projects around this central interest. Publishing the Jordan Lab’s specific research goals allows others with experience or interest in the same topic to join the discourse community, thereby adding to the existing
A medical scientist is someone who studies diseases, viruses, bacteria, and find cures for illnesses. They also conduct experiments and create vaccines and medications. I chose to research this career because the description intrigued me and I like that it involves science. One of my strengths that I believe would be good for this career is teamwork. Obviously, during experiments or working on medications I’ll need to be able to communicate well with the other medical scientist working on the projects with me.
The purpose of this paper will be to compare and contrast Lippitt’s and Kotter change theories as well as provide similarities and differences amongst the two. Change is vital in the medical field and especially in nursing, relating to implementation of these changes. The need for effective and efficient communication and appropriate leadership allows for easier implementation and interventions to occur. Change in nursing needs to be purposeful, have direction and have the capability to achieve desired goals. (Kotter 2008)
Among these potential benefits include: additional diagnostic tests, distribution of medications and vaccinations, and emergency evacuation services (Fair Benefits 2). Essentially, the Fair Benefits model emphasizes sharing the benefits of successful medical research and along with the Collaborative model, it is a solution to the four major questions regarding medical research in developing countries. These four questions include: “1) How can we prevent vulnerable patients form being exploited by research?, 2) How can such patients gives informed consent?, 3) Is it right to apply standards of research of developed countries to research in developing countries or can there be a double standard?, and 4) Are there special problems of context in doing research on poor, illiterate people in developing countries? (Pence 204).” In addition to answering these questions, there are three guidelines that need to be followed when conducting research in
Effective understanding and communication is a vital key in healthcare and is very important to improve everyone’s health and wellbeing. By doing so, we then build healthier communities. These ethical and racial groups need to be recognized and addressed because of their cultures, languages and/or health literacy of these diverse patients and their communities. “The ideas people have about health, the languages they use, the health literacy skills they have, and the contexts in which they communicate about health reflect their cultures. Organizations can increase communication effectiveness when they recognize and bridge cultural differences that may contribute to miscommunication.”
Advocating for the creation and adaptation of policies to insure honesty, quality and access is part of the policy competencies (Thomas et al., 2011). By utilizing the tools in the Adaption Model, nurse practitioners can adapt health care policy across disciplines, and assess the impact globalization will have on the creation of policy. Adaptability allows for the creation of policies for a variety of patients. There are great variations in ethnicity, religion, environmental factors and rituals that must be accounted for when creating health care policy. The ability to adapt knowledge and ideas into ethical policies and practice contributes to the creation of successful and quality healthcare (Current Nursing,
I look forward to learning skills that help them to handle adequately complex challenges such as working within tight budgets, initiating health care policy change to eliminate health disparities, and improving health care outcomes at all levels of care. As a DNP, I will practice health promotion, health maintenance, and prevention in the facilities where I work. DNP provided me with the knowledge of where to seek to fund when carrying out a research project from The National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) and the National Institute of Health (NIH). These institutes work together to improve minority health and eliminate health disparities through scientific research that is federally funded. (AANC,
I not only strive to apply scientific findings to treat my future patients, but also hope to gain inspiration from my patients to advance scientific knowledge. I believe the ideal way to apply my interests, and to best serve my community, is as a physician-scientist. The MD Anderson 1st Year Medical Student Program would offer me the opportunities
Without HeLa cells, half of the human race would have been extinct and scientists research would not be as advanced as it is today. HeLa cells have caused science to be impacted by being able to retain information through research and expand their philosophy on science. The scientific information presented is important to everyday comprehension which benefits the health of the human race. Imagine living in a world where HeLa cells are
There were some key points I got out of reading this issue of Doctors Digest in regards to quality improvement. I think David Meyers, MD made many good points that are so important to improve the quality of our Healthcare system. He makes the point that data and measurement should be the “starting blocks of quality improvement.” He made another excellent point by saying “If we don’t know how we’re doing, we don’t know where to improve; and we don’t know if we have improved.” I feel these are key questions that must be asked in order to improve quality of healthcare.
1. Why do you want to be part of the UW Premed Exec team? I want to be part of the UW Premed Exec Team because I want to aid in its effort to make accurate information and worthwhile resources about medicine-related careers accessible to others also pursuing a career in medicine. Half the battle to actualizing a medical career is knowing what, when, where, how, and why, questions that are more so relevant today than ever before, considering the incredible rate at which the medical landscape is and will continue to transform. To mitigate some of the stress involved in pursuing such a career path – answering most of the what, when, where, how, and why -- I want to be at the forefront of medical education education.
The NCQA ACO program is meant to create an alignment of the healthcare plan with the state, employer, and even the federal purchasers need to form a leverage that will be used in the promoting of organizations to make a transformation for healthcare providers (Carver & Jesie, 2011). The best thing about the ACO accreditation is that it helps making a determination of whether the various organizations have the right infrastructure for accountability. The purchasers are more concerned with whether the organization is in a better position to serve. They are also in need of assurance that they will get quality care from the organizations. Through the process of NCQA accreditation, the purchaser gets the right information (Blazej,
