Changes in culture and technology have resulted in patient populations that are often well informed and educated, even before consulting or considering a healthcare need delivered by a health professional. Fueled by this, health professionals are increasingly involving patients in treatment decisions. However, this often comes with challenges, as illnesses and treatments can become complex.What has your experience been with patient involvement in treatment or healthcare decisions?In this Discussion, you will share your experiences and consider the impact of patient involvement (or lack of involvement). You will also consider the use of a patient decision aid to inform best practices for patient care and healthcare decision making.To Prepare:Review the Resources and reflect on a time when you experienced a patient being brought into (or not being brought into) a decision regarding their treatment plan.Review the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute’s Decision Aids Inventory at https://decisionaid.ohri.ca/. Choose “For Specific Conditions,” then Browse an alphabetical listing of decision aids by health topic.NOTE: To ensure compliance with HIPAA rules, please DO NOT use the patient’s real name or any information that might identify the patient or organization/practice.By Day 3 of Week 8Post a brief description of the situation you experienced and explain how incorporating or not incorporating patient preferences and values impacted the outcome of their treatment plan. Be specific and provide examples. Then, explain how including patient preferences and values might impact the trajectory of the situation and how these were reflected in the treatment plan. Finally, explain the value of the patient decision aid you selected and how it might contribute to effective decision making, both in general and in the experience you described. Describe how you might use this decision aid inventory in your professional practice or personal life.Must have 3 references published within the last 5 years
A tenet of telecommunications says the more people who access a network, the more valuable the network becomes. This is called Metcalfe’s Law. When organizations implement security policies, there are pressures and trade-offs ~~ Chapter nine examines different types of users on networks as it reviews an individual’s need for access & how those needs can lead to risks.How can the use of security policies reduce risk? ExplainHow can a SAP reduce risk? ExplainWhy are end-users considered the “weakest” link in regards to implementing security policies and controls? Explain
During the nineteenth century, American industry grew to unprecedented size. Along with this growth came numerous changes in how Americans lived and worked. Many people left their homes and families to find work in the new nation’s growing port cities and mill towns. The challenge was to create industrial spaces that adhered to the ideals of the nation. Temporary women workers were a key part of this. Mill Girls as they were and are still called, represented a fascinating moment in American industrial history.In this essay of 500 words you are going to pretend to be a reporter of the 1830s whose editor has asked you to go to Lowell Massachusetts to visit the fabric mills there and report on them. You will write one of two “articles” under one of these two headlines:“Lowell Mills are Something New and Unique to America.”or“Lowell Mills Recreate the Factory Horrors of Old England.”In writing, consider questions of work routines, pay, living conditions, architecture, and anything else that helps you make up your mind and write your “article.” Were Mill Girls happy? Were they well paid? Was this a new way to approach industry or was this just so much more grueling factory labor?Your sources are the above listed Lowell Mill historical documents and images. They consist of letters from Mill Girls, schedules, observations, and other material.Your article must make use in some way of EACH of those source (except the factory images) which you may cite with a simple citation such as “Malenda Edwards Letter.”You must also make specific reference to Alexander Hamilton, “Report on Manufactures,” 1791 which laid out a vision of American industry.Be creative and think carefully about your assessment given the available evidence. Use the sources to support your view and make your case. For more Information on American History check on this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_History
Choose a specific tissue type (e.g., adipose tissue) and respond to the following in a post of at least 300 words:What major tissue type does your chosen tissue example belong to?What gross and histological features do all tissues in this major tissue type exhibit?What subcellular details makes your chosen tissue example distinct from others in the same grouping? (E.g., abundance or lack of certain organelle)How do these subcellular features make your chosen tissue type specialized for its function at specific locations?Examine how possible medical conditions can arise in your chosen tissue type due to abnormal organelle structure or function.In your follow-up posts, post a resource from a scientific journal that you think is excellent that extends the information provided in your peer’s post.First, directly copy a paragraph or excerpt from the chosen source that you think enhances your peer’s post.Next, paraphrase and summarize using your own words the information from the paragraph you copied.You must explain why or how the information enhances or extends the information provided.
