Electronic Health Records In The Academic World, Madeline Leapaldt 2016 University of Akron Main Campus

Electronic Health Records In The Academic World, Madeline Leapaldt

Honors Research Projects

Health or medical records are the backbone of the healthcare industry. They allow professions to practice patient-centered, interdisciplinary care. Electronic Health Records help accelerate the care process and allow for a smoother patient experience. However, many healthcare professionals have not used an Electronic Health Record prior to employment or internships. This can be detrimental to the process and slow down the entire team. Research shows that teaching Electronic Health Records in an academic setting allows students to safely explore the system and become comfortable with using technology for healthcare purposes. There are specific requirements that have been shown to aid ...

Mapping Change In Medical Student Attitudes Regarding Lesbian, Gay And Bisexual Healthcare, Kaitlyn C. Mccune, Katherine L. Imborek, Theang Ho, Abbey J. Hardy-Fairbanks, Colleen K. Stockdale

POG In Press

Despite significant social advances among lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals, healthcare disparities remain prevalent. Medical education represents a prime opportunity for addressing this need. Thus, we undertook this study to explore second year medical students’ attitudes regarding equal access to healthcare services including erectile dysfunction medication, family planning medications and technology, and partner health insurance coverage.

Nearly 1500 allopathic medical students were surveyed from 2006 to 2014 during their second pre-clinical training year. While attitudes regarding care between LGB patients and heterosexual patients were often similar, there was a significant change in favor of providing insurance coverage for ...

Objective: Investigate the impact of clinical clerkships on medical students’ attitudes toward contraception and abortion.

Methods: As part of their required curriculum, second-year medical students at the University of Iowa complete an anonymous survey that presents eight questions involving specific contraception and abortion scenarios. In this pilot study, all 159 members of the Class of 2013 who had previously completed this required anonymous survey were invited to re-take the survey at the conclusion of their fourth year.

Evaluation Of Robotic Cardiac Surgery Simulation Training, Matthew Valdis 2015 The University of Western Ontario

Evaluation Of Robotic Cardiac Surgery Simulation Training, Matthew Valdis

University of Western Ontario - Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

OBJECTIVE: To compare the currently available simulation modalities in robotic surgery.

METHODS: 40 trainees completed two robotic cardiac surgery tasks and were randomized to: a wet lab, a dry lab, a virtual reality lab or a control group with no additional training. Participants trained to proficiency determined by two expert robotic surgeons, and then repeated the assessments. All assessments were blinded and evaluated using the GEARS scoring tool.

RESULTS: All three training streams improved their performance. The wet lab and virtual reality groups met the levels of proficiency for all tasks. The average time to reach proficiency was least for ...

Phi Kappa Phi Research Symposium

In an attempt to look into ways to reduce attrition rates in nursing programs, we did a study to look into what non-academic factors can be looked at in addition to the current standard admission data. The research question of interest was “What non-academic characteristics of students can lead to best chance of success in nursing school?” Our sample included 115 students at Georgia Southern University School of Nursing, who have already completed at least one semester of nursing school. Instrument of collection was an IRB approved 20-item self-reported questionnaire with anonymous and passive content. Data was analyzed using SPSS ...


Substance Abuse Among The Elderly: What Works In Treatment, Sophia Morelli 2015 California State University - San Bernardino

Substance Abuse Among The Elderly: What Works In Treatment, Sophia Morelli

Electronic Theses, Projects, and Dissertations

Social workers are trained during the course of their education to work with the elderly and to understand the various dynamics of aging. These professionals also receive education on substance abuse and how to assess clients as well as link them to appropriate supportive services. How can social workers be more inclined to effectively treat the elderly substance abuser? What are, if any, special considerations a social worker should be aware of when working with the geriatric population? What treatment modalities seem to be more effective with the elderly client? This study utilized a qualitative analysis consisting of interviews with ...

Beliefs About Hospice Care Among Helping Professionals, Teresa Y. Phinazee

Electronic Theses, Projects, and Dissertations

ABSTRACT

Centered on interviews with 13 hospice care professionals from two large hospice organizations in Southern California, this thesis project examines the challenges that arise in hospice work. Hospice’s delivery of end-of-life care is becoming even more significant as the population lives longer. According to the National Institute on Aging (2014), the face of aging in the United States is changing dramatically. This examination discloses some of the challenges that hospice workers face in a continuously changing health care system, while trying to provide extraordinary service to the terminally ill.

Hospice regards dying as a conventional progression, and neither ...

Never Too Early: Introducing Illness Scripts And Narrative Medicine As Foundational Clinical Approaches, Julia B. Frank, Seema Kakar, Gisela Butera, Thomas Harrod

Medicine Faculty Posters and Presentations

Educational Challenge: The foundations course of our reformed, organ-based curriculum introduces clinical interviewing when students know little clinical medicine. An exercise that introduces the complementary concepts of “illness scripts” and “narrative medicine” helps them structure early encounters with patients. It provides a framework for organizing future clinical knowledge while reinforcing the humanistic values that may deteriorate over the course of students’ education.

Method: Students conduct and write up a semi-structured interview of someone they know with chronic illness. They reflect on their experience in pairs, and then analyze sample encounters in small groups with faculty facilitation.

Outcome: Strongly favorable student ...
