Health Care Delivery (4-6 Pages *Excluding Title And Reference) APA Format

Health care in the United States is changing. A paradigm shift is occurring as more and more health care organizations are reorganizing existing business models from inpatient to outpatient services. That being said, you have been tasked to develop a proposal for the development of a health care facility that is designed to meet the rapidly changing health care needs. Within your proposal, you are required to research and discuss the following:

  • The type of facility you are recommending and the rationale behind your recommendation. For example, if you chose an ambulatory care facility, explain the reasons why this type of facility would be recommended over another type.
  • The type of health care delivery and services that are provided at the facility.
  • The type of staff that will work in the facility. Specify the position categories and/or titles for these positions and include what are the credentials or licensures required by these positions in the state in which you live where you proposed facility would be located.

Peplau And Orem

Assignment:

This week you will create a two-part Power Point to discuss the following:

Part one:

Peplau was the first nursing theorist to identify the nurse–patient relationship as being central to all nursing care. Peplau valued knowledge, believing that the nurse must possess extensive knowledge about the potential problems that emerge during a nurse–patient interaction. Peplau’s theoretical work on the nurse–patient relationship continues to be essential to nursing practice.

  • Describe the phases of the Nurse-Patient relationship as defined by Peplau. Align your presentation regarding the use of Peplau’s theory with a current practice example.

Part two:

Provide a discussion of Orem’s Self-Care Deficit Theory. Identify and explain the three related parts? Identify a current nursing practice example where Orem’s theory would be relevant. Use at least one evidenced-based research article to support your practice example. The PowerPoint should include at least 3 outside references and the textbook. It should include title and reference slides and be 14-20 slides.

The Commonwealth Fund Report

Multiple people attended the meeting, but the key members who presented were Tim T., Jocelyn R., Jeff C., Jesse R., Lisa O., and Sade S., all nurses.

5 Important “A’s” Of Access To Healthcare

5 important “A’s” of access to healthcare.

In health care we often talk about the 5 important “A’s” of access to healthcare.

The 5 A’s are:

Availability: Degree of fit between existing health services and clients’ needs
Accessibility: Extent to which the geographical location of health service delivery coincides with the location of clients
Affordability: Degree of fit between service prices and clients’ ability to pay
Adequacy: Extent to which the organization of services meets clients’ expectations
Acceptability: Degree of fit between characteristics of the provider and those of clients

 

Based upon the 5 A’s, let’s discuss the following:

Do all individuals currently have equal and open access to health care? Why? Why not?

Discussion Wk 11

Clients with personality disorders often find it difficult to overcome their problems and function in daily life. Even when these clients are aware that they have a dysfunction with their personality and are open to counseling, treatment can be challenging for both the client and the therapist. For this Discussion, as you examine personality disorders, consider therapeutic approaches you might use with clients.

Post a description of the personality disorder you selected. Explain a therapeutic approach (including psychotropic medications if appropriate) you might use to treat a client presenting with this disorder, including how you would share your diagnosis of this disorder to the client in order to avoid damaging the therapeutic relationship. Support your approach with evidence-based literature.

The Selected personality disorder is Borderline Personality Disorder.
