Healthcare Support Services Summary Paper
Hospice Care Description of the Organization
Care designed to give supportive care to people in the final phase of a terminal illness and focus on comfort and quality of life, rather than cure. The goal is to enable patients to be comfortable and free of pain, so that they live each day as fully as possible. Aggressive methods of pain control may be used. Hospice programs generally are home-based, but they sometimes provide services away from home in freestanding facilities, in nursing homes, or within hospitals. The philosophy of hospice is to provide support for the patient's emotional, social, and spiritual needs as well as medical symptoms as part of treating the whole person. Hospice programs generally use a multidisciplinary team approach, including the services of a nurse, doctor, social worker and clergy in providing care. Additional services provided include drugs to control pain and manage other symptoms; physical, occupational, and speech therapy; medical supplies and equipment; medical social services; dietary and other counseling; continuous home care at times of crisis; and bereavement services. Although hospice care does not aim for cure of the terminal illness, it may treat potentially curable conditions such as pneumonia and bladder infections, with brief hospital stays if necessary. Hospice programs also offer respite care workers, people who are usually trained volunteers, who take over the patient's care so that the family or other primary caregivers can leave the house for a few hours. Volunteer care is part of hospice philosophy.
Demographics
About 885,000 patients and families were admitted into the 3200 US hospice programs in 2002 according to the National Hospice and Palliative Care…...

...scoring system. Social Interactional Determinants of Moral Judgments Kohlbergian interviewers are not involved in the dilemmas about which interviewees make moral judgments; they keep their opinions to themselves. In contrast, in real life, the recipients of moral judgments are often involved in the moral conflicts in question; they express their own opinions and debate the moral issues at hand. As noted by Haan (1975), interpersonal moral conflicts involve dynamic social exchanges. The parties engaged in such conflicts may alternatively serve as sources, objects, and recipients of moral judgments, each influencing the other in an exchange of first- and second-person moral judgments (e.g., “You wronged me. . . .” “No, I had a right to do what I did; you are the one who wronged me”). Krebs et al. (2002) found that victims of transgressions who were capable of making high-stage moral judgments tended to invoke Stage 2 moral judgments in response to the low-stage judgments their partners made to justify their misdeeds. Kohlberg’s model is poorly equipped to account for such proximate social determinants of moral judgment. Role of Emotion in Moral Decision Making In contrast to the moral decisions people make on Kohlberg’s test, most of the moral decisions people make in their everyday lives are accompanied by strong affective responses. Participants in our research reported experiencing different kinds of emotions in reaction to different kinds of dilemmas. For example,......

...Unexpected leave of the employees and urgent need for the workers forced managers to hire new workers in a very short period of time without substantial review. New employees had good resumes and seemed enthusiastic about the job. It was expected that in the beginning new employees will adapt to the working environment performance of the department will go down. But time was passing and the performance didn’t seem to get better. Senior managers started to get worry about the issue. If performance of the department would not increase the company can face real big problems with the project and loose a lot of profit I as a Human Resources manager decide to examine the problem in the details. I spoke with the managers of the department. They told me about a problem with the new employees; they have acquired all the necessary skills, they are diligent, always on the time but seems that there are misunderstanding between them and their supervisors. Employees usually fail to comply with the task given to them, they misunderstand the assignment and then supervisors need to explain them again what they want and from the second or maybe even from the third time the employees succeed. Because of the misunderstanding the work process slows down hence performance worsens. “They just don’t listen” – concluded the manager. The last sentence caught my attention. I needed to understand the reason for the misunderstanding and the reason was that employees lacked listening skills. Most......

...self-reporting instrument, which is designed to measure emotional behaviour in Pakistani adolescents. It consists of 49 items and has three subscales; Social Anxiety subscale (19 items) which measures concerns about behaving appropriately in social settings as well as empathic concern for others, e.g., „I easily become upset‟; Malevolent Aggression subscale (20 items) which assesses the capacity to harm others and measures the tendency to manipulate others for self-gain and a desire for revenge, e.g., „I feel happy when I get my revenge‟; and Social Self-Esteem subscale (10 items) which refers to feelings of self-worth in social situations, e.g., „Sometimes I really feel unwanted‟. The response format for each item is dichotomous: „more like me‟ (1) or „less like me‟ (0). Adding scores for each subscale gives their respective composite scores, which range from 0-19 for Social Anxiety subscale; 0-20 for Malevolent Aggression subscale; and 0-10 for Social Self-Esteem subscale. The three-factor structure of this scale has been confirmed using confirmatory factor analysis in samples of adolescents taken from United Kingdom (Clarbour & Roger, 2004) and Pakistan (Soomro & Clarbour, 2010). Validation studies have shown that scores on the Social Anxiety subscale are positively related to measures of emotional symptoms, prosocial behaviour, empathy, and internalising behaviour problems while scores on Malevolent Aggression subscale have been found to correlate positively with......

...MINES INTRODUCTION Globalization is an idea whose time has come. From obscure origins in French and American writings in the 1960s, the concept of globalization finds expression today in all the world’s major languages ( Stiglitz, 2002).Yet, it lacks precise definition. Indeed, globalization is in danger of becoming, if it has not already become,the cliché of our times: the big idea which encompasses everything from global financial markets to theInternet but which delivers little substantive insight into the contemporary human condition.Clichés, nevertheless, often capture elements of the lived experience of an epoch. In this respect,globalization reflects a widespread perception that the world is rapidly being moulded into a shared socialspace by economic and technological forces and that development in one region of the world can haveprofound consequences for the life chances of individuals or communities on the other side of the globe. Formany, globalization is also associated with a sense of political fatalism and chronic insecurity in that thesheer scale of contemporary social and economic change appears to outstrip the capacity of nationalgovernments or citizens to control, contest or resist that change. The limits to national politics, in otherwords, are forcefully suggested by globalization.Although the popular rhetoric of globalization may capture aspects of the contemporary zeitgeist, there is aburgeoning academic debate as to whether globalization, as......

...movies back then were somewhat longer than they are today. The film has a lot of humorous moments made especially the main character which is interesting because it contrasts what he does to the narrative storyline. Another interesting thing about the movie is that in some scenes, there is nothing particularly happening yet we hear dramatic music playing. Then, later in the film, we hear dramatic music again when a dramatic event occurs. The music played at the beginning in the non dramatic scene is almost giving us a glimpse of what will happen later on, in the dramatic scene. This keeps the audience interested because it builds up tension.
Sometime during the end of the film the actor does a little twist which seemed very interesting to me because when the character finally decides to turn himself in, it’s almost like he decided to live realistically, to stop his negative thinking. See, negative thinking is usually associated with the colour black, he’s thinking either this or that, either black or white. Negative people tend to think that way. Perhaps it’s a reference to living in colour which was somewhat a new concept back then in films. After that, he gets shot by the police for being seen as aggressive and hostile towards the police. 

The genre of this movie would most probably be identified as romantic comedy because of the humorous moments made by the character and his girlfriend. The reason I say probably is because it also has other genres merged with it. Genres......

... THESIS STATEMENT: Problems within the economy in the United States could be restored with the help of legalizing marijuana. Taking in marijuana for industrial, medical, and personal use would reassure the growth and stability of the economy as a whole. Rojas, A. (2011). Marijuana uses, effects and the law. Hauppauge, N.Y.: Nova Science. This would be a great book to use for my final project in unit nine because it talks about the effects of marijuana mentally and physically. As it talks about how marijuana affects us mentally and physically I could discuss how it could help many people. It also discusses the laws that are in place now with in our nation. Knowing what laws are in place now would be great to know what needs to me changed to make our great nation even better. Lastly it talks about marijuana being used for medical and recreational use which would be great for my final project. WYATT, K. (2015, February 4). Colorado May Have To Refund As Much As $30 Million In Pot Taxes. Retrieved from http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/02/04/colorado-pot-taxes-back-to-residents_n_6612292.html This is a great news article I found. It discusses how Colorado has made a lot of tax revenue just off of marijuana. With that being said because it is not legal federally they can’t use it for schools and other great things. Instead they have to give it back to the people. It discusses how every adult in Colorado should get around seven to eight dollars back on their......

...long-term memory. If this new material isn’t continuously repeated it’ll be forgotten. Hence the phrase “Use it or lose it”. Once you understand something and can remember it and recall it you now have knowledge. The last step is finding the best way and most effective way to convert information into knowledge which is studying. This could be a difficult process because people aren’t the same everyone has their own way of studying that’s best for them. Take me for example I’m a Tactile/Kinesthetic learner according to the learning survey I took on www.metamath.com. I learn best when I’m able to be hands on and engaged in activity, according to metamath.com “[I] benefit from a lab setting where [I] can manipulate materials to learn new information”. To me this makes the most sense because I know myself I often get bored listening to long drawn out lectures however I’m more likely to be interested when I am playing an active role in the learning process. When I can use something I’m being taught at that instance it seems to help me remember it better. Some study habits I feel like I should incorporate into my study habits are reading textbooks more and studying with flashcards more than usual. Another studied field of science that is often overlooked is sleep. Sleep plays a significant role in the learning process as well which was also briefly discussed in “The Biology of Learning” where Dr. Londe says, “Sleep deprivation inhibits learning”. This then means if you’re not......

...their lament with 8-10 people and some will push that number to twenty”. Which means that even if we have convinced some that Verizon is the best place on earth, that one customer that you failed to reach can contradict all your hard work. Also another problem is that as a new customer you get some many benefits and the customers that are currently with us do not have the same benefits. This is stated the best by "Explore The Value Of Customer Retention" (2015) when they stated “…A great example is the wireless telephone companies; if you sign a new contract you are given a large rebate or even a free cellular telephone. If you are a current customer you have the privilege of paying full price. Can someone please explain that methodology to me? With this type of promotion are we not just pushing current customers and clients to seek services elsewhere when their contract ends?” This is what I saw first hand, if we can offer these great promotions to new customers we can do much more for our customers that have been there for their contract. One other fact that I learned through my research is that according to "The Economics Of E-Loyalty" (2015), “a 5% increase in customer retention can increase a company’s profitability by 75%”. With a saturated market this can make all the difference, and even I can tell that the way churn is for all companies it is a miracle that some of them are even still in business.

...making a living and not have to rely on the government for support. The type of business I would like to create I’m still unsure of, but I would probably want to set up my own gym with an affordable cost so that people don’t have to go bankrupt just because they want to lift some weights or stay fit. Another reason why becoming a business owner is one of my goals, is because I was never fond of the idea of working for someone else, I would tell myself “If I don’t build my own dreams, someone will hire me to help build theirs”, so that’s that motivates me to one day become my own boss of a multimillion dollar business. I could even us that business to promote myself as a boxer! Being a business owner is also another gateway for me to pursue my other goals, since most of them have some sort of budget, like starting a charity. I have always wanted to help others in need. Even as a child, I was always there to lend a helping hand. So starting a charity organization wouldn’t be a hassle for me. To be more specific on the type of charity to want to create, I want to create one for the young athletes that can’t achieve their goals either because of financial problems, or simply because they don’t have enough support. I personally know the struggle of not having support from your friends, relatives, and it could kill the will to not even try, so they end up not achieve their goals. The reason for it being a charity is so that others can contribute to it, and help a young athlete in......

...In your hands, my fellow citizens, more than in mine, will rest the final success or failure of our course. Since this country was founded, each generation of Americans has been summoned to give testimony to its national loyalty. The graves of young Americans who answered the call to service surround the globe. Now the trumpet summons us again — not as a call to bear arms, though arms we need; not as a call to battle, though embattled we are — but a call to bear the burden of a long twilight struggle, year in and year out, "rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation" — a struggle against the common enemies of man: tyranny, poverty, disease, and war itself. Can we forge against these enemies a grand and global alliance, North and South, East and West, that can assure a more fruitful life for all mankind? Will you join in that historic effort? In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shrink from this responsibility — I welcome it. I do not believe that any of us would exchange places with any other people or any other generation. The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavor will light our country and all who serve it — and the glow from that fire can truly light the world. And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country. My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you...

...Psychiatric Nursing • Basically, CHN is a favourite of mine. Having been exposed in the community, the illnesses that are rampant and how the people cope, I find it very interesting. • Medical-Surgical Nursing too, is of high regard. Just knowing the different kinds of diseases, pathophysiology and the nursing care rendered, the subject becomes very overwhelming, and at the same time augments my learning in the process. • Psychiatric Nursing is precious because the subject is very complex. I deem to see how human beings are dynamic and complicated altogether. Although this subject is quite unfathomable, especially that it concerns the brain, as a human, it sparks incredible fascination. Weaknesses: Fundamentals of Nursing, Maternal & Child Nursing, Nursing Research, Jurisprudence, Nursing Ethics, Leadership & Management. • Don’t get me wrong, Fundamentals of Nursing is a very appealing subject. All the basics in nursing that everyone should know are comprised here. However, there are times when the book and topic conflicts with the actual experience. Apparently, there is a lot of updated information of Nursing Fundamentals that the ‘senior’ nurses do not know. They rely on ‘old school’ materials that pave way to conflicts between the new and old ones. Hence, information should be clarified. • Maternal & Child Nursing is intriguing but gives me bewilderment. Due to the vast instruction there is available,......
