Telehealth is a rapidly expanding mode of health care delivery, improving the efficiency of health care and related support services across the United States. Through telehealth, services are made more accessible, resulting in improved care for those in rural and under severed communities. Improving mental health care in the United States is not a simple fix, and it will require the continued normalization of behavioral health, so that our society will be able to move past the stigma, allowing people to feel comfortable seeking care. The goal of this paper is to address the importance of having access to behavioral ...

Documenting The Roles And Collaborations Of Maternal Healthcare Options In Northern Uganda Via Personnel Transcript Analysis, Lydia C. Fulton

The Macksey Journal

Health care is a constantly evolving aspect of a country’s culture. Being no different, Uganda’s health care has been shaped by the plurality of health care choices present in a community at any given point in history. The health-seeking behaviors displayed by Ugandans is dependent upon the public’s perceptions and opinions of these available choices. This research focuses on themes found through the methodological transcription of interviews of northern Ugandan traditional birth attendants (TBA) and midwives, detailing their experiences working in maternal and early childhood care.

Promoting Resident Emotional Health Meaningful Connections: An Evaluation Of A Wellness Game, Bruce St. Amour, William B. DeHart 2020 LewisGale Medical Center

Promoting Resident Emotional Health Meaningful Connections: An Evaluation Of A Wellness Game, Bruce St. Amour, William B. Dehart

Journal of Wellness

Introduction

Physician wellness is a topic of significant national interest. Physician burnout is at its highest point during residency and is linked to many negative outcomes. The Core Emotional Needs are a useful framework to guide thinking toward wellness in residents: connection and acceptance, healthy autonomy and performance, reasonable limits, and healthy responsibility and standards. We examined the efficacy of a game (“Well, For Me…”) designed to improve social connection and acceptance among residents to reduce social isolation. We hypothesized that this activity would be viewed positively by the residents as an intervention to improve resident wellness.

Gautama Buddha: Illustration Of A Patient’S Vision, Haryashpal Bhullar

HCA Healthcare Journal of Medicine

As a psychiatrist in training, I often have the privilege to connect with the unique thoughts and visions patients may be experiencing. The descriptions shared by one patient during my early psychiatry inpatient rotations stuck with me and eventually inspired me to pursue a residency in the field. While interviewing, she expressed a deep spirituality and often finding solace in the mindfulness teachings of Gautama Buddha whenever she was distressed. She would strengthen this coping mechanism by contemplating him sitting and meditating deeply, within a naturalistic setting, however struggled in describing exactly what she was imagining. I further gathered this ...

We should all learn something from this challenging time. This article elaborates on three lessons learned by two brothers who grew up in Rwanda right after the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi, where more than one million people died in 100 days.

Birth Narratives: A Vehicle For Women’S Agency And Catharsis, Charity L. Gibson

Survive & Thrive: A Journal for Medical Humanities and Narrative as Medicine

Pregnant women are often portrayed in the media as sick patients in need of healing. Influential midwife Ina May Gaskin has questioned why the medical field doubts the power of women to trust their own bodies. The belief that pregnancy is a condition which weakens and even in some ways infantilizes women disempowers them. Pregnant women in the media are typically portrayed comically, in which the ailments of their condition are overemphasized while simultaneously trivialized. However, the birthing process itself is typically shown as something that women do not have the ability to navigate on their own. They are out ...

Promoting Recognition And Rescue: Human Trafficking Screening, Erin E. Pittman 2020 University of Texas at Tyler

Promoting Recognition And Rescue: Human Trafficking Screening, Erin E. Pittman

MSN Capstone Projects

The exploitation of human beings is a serious public health concern (Centers for Disease Control [CDC] 2018). The United States Department of Justice (2018) defines human trafficking as an act of coercing a person’s labor services or commercial sex acts. Family Nurse Practitioners play a significant role in the identification of victims, especially those practicing in emergency departments. A majority of healthcare providers have yet to establish a standardized screening tool and there is little evidence regarding the impact these screening tools have in recognizing victims of human trafficking (Emergency Nurses Association, 2018). This alarming information brings about the ...

Treading Water: Coping With Uncertainty During A Novel Pandemic, Sachin Patel

Patient Experience Journal

The abruptness with which the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the delivery of healthcare will have a lasting effect on patients and families of intensive care unit survivors. Using the best science and epidemiology healthcare systems developed protocols and policies to implement the highest level of care but mitigate disease spread. Out of these initiatives the “no visitor” policy was born. The impact of COVID-19 causing florid respiratory failure immediately derailed the lives of a happily retired couple. While on mechanical ventilation for sixteen days, Betty was unable to connect with her husband of over 40 years. In that time, the ...

The History Of Early Modern Medicine In New Spain, El Primero Sueño, And Poet Sor Juana Inés De La Cruz, Daniel Hughes

Grand Valley Journal of History

This essay analyzes poetry and other writing by Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz in the context of themes from Greco-Roman antiquity and the historical development of medicine in seventeenth century New Spain, now Mexico. Sor Juana’s El Primero Sueño, a Spanish language poetic silva, exhibits copious references to writers from classical antiquity, including Aristotle and Ovid. Establishing a context steeped in ideas from Greco-Roman antiquity, Sor Juana invokes the medical and philosophical legacy of foundational physician Galen of Pergamon. She also expands upon his ideas into the human anatomical realm, reflecting the increased early modern prominence of the ...
