Antibiotic Resistance: Use Of Delayed Prescriptions For Viral Syndromes In Urgent Care, Patricia Hansen

Seton Hall University DNP Final Projects

Purpose: Widespread use of antibiotics leads to a development of antimicrobial resistance, an increasing global problem. The rise of antibiotic-resistant bacterial strains represents a serious threat to the public. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates at least two million illnesses and 23,000 deaths are caused by antibiotic resistant bacteriain the United States (CDC, 2014). The strategy of delayed antibiotic prescribing, sometimes called “wait and see” prescriptions, may reduce antibiotic use for viral syndromes in primary care settings. The overall purpose of this scholarly project is to explore delayed prescriptions used by providers in two urgent care ...


Improving Collaboration Between Pharmacists And Physicians, Paras Patel 2016 Butler University

Improving Collaboration Between Pharmacists And Physicians, Paras Patel

BU Well

Physicians and pharmacists have differing but complementary roles that can optimize patient care when structured effectively. Unfortunately, these two professionals are not collaborating well enough, as patient outcomes, especially in relation to medication adherence, continue to decline. Coordinated care of patients can improve by expanding bidirectional communication and sharing additional patient information with each other. It will be necessary to continue to promote collaborative care in the educational and training stages of these professionals’ careers to build trust and understanding of professional scope. Ultimately, the healthcare infrastructure will have to continue to progress to make collaboration more available and valuable ...

Online Collaborative Learning To Enhance Clinical Training For 3rd Year Medical Students In Pediatrics, Erik E. Langenau, Louise Jones, Paula M. Gregory, Robert Lee

Erik E. Langenau

Online Collaborative Learning (OCL) provides great opportunity to engage leaners at remote clinical training sites.  Through OCL, learners participate in a variety of eLearning activities such as online content review, discussion boards, interactive blogs, wikis, webconferencing, self-reflection and group activities.   OCL affords the opportunity to reach students at different clinical training sites, ensure a basic level of comparable learning experiences, and augment face-to-face clinical training experiences. 
We describe a 3rd year clinical rotation in pediatrics facilitated partially online:  blended learning.  The program combines online collaborative learning with asynchronous discussion boards and blogs, podcasts, video demonstrations, didactic presentations, scenario-based instruction ...


Socratic Dialogue As A Framework For Understanding Activist Music During The Ebola Outbreak In Liberia, Evan Slaney 2016 Memorial University

Socratic Dialogue As A Framework For Understanding Activist Music During The Ebola Outbreak In Liberia, Evan Slaney

Nota Bene: Canadian Undergraduate Journal of Musicology

This paper argues that Plato’s Socratic Dialogues can effectively model the process through which musical activism is understood by listeners. The Socratic Dialogues, as an abstract model, are first analyzed for advantages and disadvantages when using them to understand musical activism. This analysis breaks the dialogues into two stages: “Deconstruction” and “Collaboration.” The model is then applied to the song “Ebola is Real” by F. A., Soul Fresh, and DenG, a work that arose from the outbreak of Ebola virus disease in Liberia in March 2014. The song was supported by UNICEF and has a clear activist agenda. The ...

An Analysis Of Implicit Bias In Medical Education, Racquel J. Wells, Christine Motzkus, Suzanne B. Cashman, Jeroan J. Allison, Michael Buckner, Sonia Chimienti, Deborah L. Plummer

Jeroan J. Allison

Background: The Implicit Association Test (IAT) is a well-researched method of identifying an individual's implicit bias. Occurring outside of conscious awareness, implicit bias manifests itself in the form of nonverbal thoughts, behaviors and actions that influence an individual and that are suggestive of unequal treatment. In the undergraduate medical education curriculum, the IAT is commonly used to assess the medical students' personal bias. Studies from the American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC) have shown that bias is ranked highly as one of the least addressed educational goals in medical education and training. The medical literature suggests that implicit bias ...

Predicting Medical Student Success On Licensure Exams, Charles A. Gullo, Michael J. Mccarthy, Joseph I. Shapiro, Bobby L. Miller

Michael McCarthy

Many schools seek to predict performance on national exams required for medical school graduation using prematriculation and medical school performance data. The need for targeted intervention strategies for at-risk students has led much of this interest. Assumptions that preadmission data and high stakes in-house medical exams correlate strongly with national standardized exam performance needs to be examined. Looking at prematriculation data for predicting USMLE Step 1 performance, we found that MCAT exam totals and math-science GPA had the best prediction from a set of prematriculation values (adjusted R 2 = 11.7 %) for step 1. The addition of scores from the ...

The Association Of Complex Liver Disorders With Hbv Genotypes Prevalent In Pakistan, Saeeda Baig, Anwar Ali Siddiqui, Waqaruddin Ahmed, Huma Qureshi, Ambreen Arif

Anwar Ali Siddiqui

Background

Genotyping of HBV is generally used for determining the epidemiological relationship between various virus strains and origin of infection mostly in research studies. The utility of genotyping for clinical applications is only beginning to gain importance. Whether HBV genotyping will constitute part of the clinical evaluation of Hepatitis B patients depends largely on the availability of the relevance of the evidence based information. Since Pakistan has a HBV genotype distribution which has been considered less virulent as investigated by earlier studies from south East Asian countries, a study on correlation between HBV genotypes and risk of progression to further ...
