Assessment task 1- Written reflection
What can I take away from the experience of observing this video that will help me develop clinical skill (Knowledge and self-awareness) in either therapeutic communication or inter-professional communication?
The video I have chosen to reflect upon is the handover of the pregnant stroke patient from the Paramedic to the Nurse. The paramedic introduces himself and the patient Sally. The paramedic describe the past events that lead to sally being brought into hospital and his observation made at the patient’s home. For example her age and weeks of pregnancy and that she is not on any medications that they know of.The paramedic completes his handover leaving the patient in the care of the nurse. The nurses takes over care of the patient and comes down to the patient’s level and introduces herself to patient. The Nurse also explains what will happen next and remains forces on the care of the patient, using Therapeutic communication.
This video shows many techniques that may benefit my development of clinical skills and knowledge in relation to Therapeutic communication. This form of communication that is used in the clinical environment is a collaborative partnership between the carer, the patient and their family and/or partner. This partnership as the main interest of meeting the best possible outcomes for the patient within the mutually agreed upon goals for the individual who is in care (Berman, Kozier, & Erb, 2015) . This form of communication is based on mutual trust, respect and acceptance. Currently I have limited clinical skills as I have no experience in clinical setting in a professional sense. This video has allowed me to understand that clinical skills such as Therapeutic communication can be of great benefit to the individual in care and may allow the health professional to complete their position…...

Comparison of Two Folate Assessment

...Comparison of folate intakes in a population of college students using a Food Frequency Questionnaire and Dietary Folate Equivalent Screener Abstract Although food frequency questionnaires are very strong tools in dietary assessment, more efficient methods need to be created to assess specific nutrient intakes such as folate. The dietary folate equivalent screener created by Nutrition Quest is a very efficient method used to assess daily folate intake. The objective of this study is to test whether or not a dietary folate equivalent screener can be used in supplementary of the food frequency questionnaire. The correlation between the food frequency questionnaire and the dietary folate equivalent screener for total folate intake (r = .70) were correlated but statistically insignificant (p < 0.05). However analysis of previous studies suggests that food frequency questionnaire can be supplemented by the dietary folate equivalent screener. Introduction There are many different dietary assessment tools in determining nutrient intakes. The food frequency questionnaire is a dietary assessment tool frequently used in large-scale nutritional epidemiology studies and has been a cost-effective, yet suitable method for self-administered use for dietary assessments (2) (3). However, the food frequency questionnaire is very extensive and usually takes around forty-five minutes to an hour to complete. When only assessing specific micronutrients, such as daily folate intake, more......

Reflection Two: Information Management

...(EHR), sometimes called “electronic medical records” are electronic systems that store one’s health information. Electronic health records allow doctors and nurses to more easily keep track of the patient’s health information and enables them to access the information when the patient has a health issue, even if their office is closed. The electronic health record also makes it easier for the doctor to share information about you, (the patient) with specialists and other caregivers, so that everyone who needs this information has it readily available. The personal health record allows the patient to control what kind of information goes into it. Your personal health record can reflect your life outside of the doctor’s office. It’s a direct reflection of your health priorities, such as food intake, daily exercise routine, blood pressure, cholesterol, and overall health history. E-prescription is a way of prescribing medication online, without the need for a paper prescription. E-prescription allows the doctor or nurse to communicate directly with the patient’s pharmacy. This capability enables the medication order to arrive at one’s pharmacy quicker, which allows for faster preparation of the medication. Order entry management is the ability of a clinician to enter medication and other case orders, including laboratory, microbiology, pathology, radiology, nursing, supply orders, ancillary services, and consultations directly into a computer.

Assessment of Learning Reflection

...Ismael, Alyanna A. BSED2-III Assessment of Learning I “Teaching is fun and part of it is assessing your students. It is more of a responsibility, your duty as a teacher, not an obligation.” – These are the words that moved me when I was doing the interview with Mrs. Zharrie Causaren, an English Teacher at Las Pinas East National Highschool. I was amazed by how dedicated she is with what she’s doing. She told me that she never got tired of teaching because it is her passion and she wouldn’t trade it for anything in this world. She considers teaching as calling from God. After the interview I have learned that assessment is an important component of teaching. It is a vital ingredient in the student’s learning. Without it, you cannot evaluate whether your students learned or not. It is a reflection of how you teach. It will always be there. It is inescapable. At the same time, it is your basis, your motivation as a teacher to teach well and to be more passionate to what you are doing. It pumps up your mind to be more creative, it gets you out in the comfort zone of the so called “old style teaching” and makes you think of many ways to push your students to the limits. . Mrs. Causaren made me realized that there is always a room for improvement and one way of improving your students is through assessing them. It is the engine which drives the student to study hard, learn more, and achieve more for the betterment of their learning....

The Reflection of Two Leadership Styles

...The Reflection of Two Leadership Styles NaKisha Dumas Walden University 02/09/2014 Abstract I will talk about followership and leadership connections with two persons that I work with. These people were chosen based on their leadership skills and abilities. Also, I have mutually admiration for both of them. Lastly, I preferred these two because they inspire me, and have pushed for me to go further in my career. In this paper I will talk about their leadership styles. I will also touch on the leadership characteristics in which makes them successful leaders. The Reflection of Two Leadership Styles In order to be a leader, one must understand the meaning of leadership. My belief is that each person must include their personal description of what a leader must be. I have worked with two forceful leaders for two years. One is a Captain in the United States Army, and a supervisor at the Atlanta Va. The second person is a staff nurse at the Atlanta VA Medical Center. I chose these two because each day they define true leadership skills, and abilities. They are exceedingly valuable leaders whom have the ability to lead in tough situations. My admiration for them speaks volumes. Not only do they lead in rough situations, but they also manage in tough situations. Jason Boltax, (2010) effective leaders possess purpose, courage, and trust in the face of uncertainty.  There are times when management will drop the ball on leadership. However,......

Bsbled502A Assessment Task 1

...------------------------------------------------- Assessment Task 1 - Research Report 1. Three common health issues that can be found in the business workplace, * Fatigue, caused by poor sleeping habits * food, poor dietary habits * Stress, either personal or work related. 2. These common health issues can affect employee productivity and absenteeism in the workplace. I don’t think these issues are a emerging or a growing problem, but more dependant on individual lifestyles and workloads. 2.1 Standard approaches to address the issue in the workplace are Step 1: Identify hazards - The Management Standards Step 2: Decide who might be harmed & how - Gathering Information Step 3: Evaluate the risk & take action - Linking to problems and communicating the results Step 4: Record findings - Action planning Step 5: Monitor & review - Evaluation / Continuous Improvement Managing These Factors Stress – Identify whether its work related or personal. Can it be managed internally or externally via other means such as an EAP program? Once a stress related problem has been found with an employee, talking about it can help the person either resolve or have a more understanding about the situation. If the matter can’t be resolved with HR or management, suggest they get a referral for the EAP program for further counselling from there manager/supervisor. Signs of stress can manifest in the......

Sociology Assessment Task 2

...influences that may be affecting them, helping them to realise goals and or solutions and empowering them to take action. In the Hospital setting clients may be the children or families of the children. It is important to create rapport with your clients and maintain a professional manner and operate within frameworks of counselling. These can reassurance clients their needs are being dealt with in what may be times of stress. When first dealing with clients you make an assessment, this assessment can begin to fill in many details, that although each client is individual it can tell many influences including but not restricted to, social status or standing, are they unemployed. What job do they do? Their age? How many children, attached or single? These questions among others create a picture of their place in society their class or status, which the client occupies. This information is one of the tools that the welfare worker uses to establish a picture of the client and their possible needs. The assessment takes in facts but we need to look beyond these facts and apply sociological perspectives to establish what the forces that shape the person may be. Cultural differences and mores may be easy to understand without much delving required, this then needs to be addressed and the client may need to be dealt with different especially when dealing with refugees or immigrants. Gender (of the worker) and a different beliefs system are just some of the considerations that......

Wgu Community Assessment Task 2

...COMMUNITY ASSESSMENT TASK 2 Measles is a virus that is spread by droplets through coughing and sneezing or by contact on surfaces. People infected with measles are contagious up to four days before and after the measles rash appears. Measles is highly contagious, 9 out of 10 people that come in contact with the measles virus will contract it. The highly contagious nature of measles makes widespread infection a very real threat to those who are not vaccinated (Transmission of Measles, 2014). Measles is fatal in about one case in 1,000. As with chickenpox, once an individual has had the measles, they have lifelong immunity (Facts About the Measles Outbreak, 2015). Signs and symptoms of measles include cough, runny nose, conjunctivitis and a high fever. Koplik spots in the mouth appear two to three days after the first symptoms and the measles rash appears three to five days after the first symptoms. The fever may spike with the appearance of the rash. Symptoms will then begin to subside and the rash will slowly disappear (Signs and Symptoms, 2015). A measles outbreak occurred in California between December 2014 and February 2015. The first patient was reported to be an unvaccinated 11-year-old who had recently visited Disney in Orange County, California. Several more cases were reported in California and in Utah. The common factor between these patients was the visit to Disney between December 17th and 20th. Between December 2014 and February 2015......

Module 4 Reflection and Self Assessment

...Lauren Trezise Fin-325 July 14th, 2016 Module 4 Reflection and Self-Assessment 1. What was your score on the quiz? 100% on both 2. What questions gave you a hard time? Why? No issues 3. Identify some of the important features of bonds. Bonds have set maturity dates that range from 1 to 30 years. They typically offer some form of interest payments either by fixed rate, floating rate, or zero coupon. The bond issuers are required to repay the principle full amount in a lump sum after the bond has reached maturity. The default risk of the bond can be evaluated first-hand to decide if it’s worth investing. It may also be redeemed before the maturity date if it has a “call feature.” Bonds are typically issued in $1,000 or $5,000 denominations. 4. There are three main patterns created by the term structure of interest rates. There are normal, flat, and inverted yield curves. The normal yield curve means that as general current interest rates increase, the price of a bond will decrease and its yield will increase. With a flat yield curve, investors can maximize their risk/return tradeoff by choosing fixed income securities with the least risk or highest credit quality. Lastly, with an inverted yield curve, interest rates decline as time moves farther into the future, which means the yields of long-term bonds will decline. This is a very rare circumstance. This can sometimes be an indicator of a market slowdown. 5. The coupon rate determines if a bond is...

Reflection Two: Information Management

...Reflection Two: Information Management Jessica Quiñones-Gruetzmacher Walden University NURS 6015: Information and Healthcare Technologies Applied to Nursing Practice Dr. Juanita Rass April 15, 2012 Introduction Nurses have various roles when dealing with clients. Some of those roles are caregiver, communicator, teacher, advocate, leader, manager, and researcher. This course has added other roles to the previous list, such as data gatherer, information user, knowledge user and knowledge builder and those roles can be achieved by the use of informatics or nursing informatics (Hebda and Czar, 2009). The purpose for this paper is to reflect on theories, concepts and strategies presented in NURS 6015: Information and Healthcare Technologies Applied to Nursing Practice. NURS 6015 Impact on Personal Attitude Nursing Informatics When this course started my personal attitude was one of skepticism. My thoughts were really negative and crude such as, “how is this course going to help me with my job?”, “is it totally necessary?” or “what is the importance of this course?” Now my way of thinking is one of acceptance, understanding and curiosity. New ideas pop in my head, questions begin to take shape and learning moments start to make sense. All the time spent in my clinical practice is a time for putting the knowledge learned in NURS 6015 into use. “Nurses need to be adept at using patient-centered information technology (IT) tools to access information to expand......
