Book Description :

In By the Bedside of the Patient, Nortin Hadler places current efforts to reform medical education--from the undergraduate level through residency programs and on to continuing medical education--in historical context. In doing so, he traces the evolution of medical school curricula, residency and fellowship programs, and the clinical practices they promoted. Hadler examines crucial junctures in history to locate the seeds for reform. Some believe that medical education and training should highlight literature, ethics, and culture, while others emphasize science and efficiency to abbreviate the time from entry to licensure. Neither of these approaches, Hadler argues, maintains or improves patient care, which should be at the core of medical education and practice. Hadler contends that most reform attempted thus far constitutes, at best, little more than a reshuffling of the basic curriculum and, at worst, an augmenting of medicine's predilection to measure, grade, and record. Examining generational changes in medical education, Hadler mines sixty years of training and practice to identify mistaken approaches and best practices. Ultimately, in the contemporary era of managed care, Hadler argues for a clinical practice that draws on the best available scientific knowledge, transmits the wisdom of experienced clinicians, reforges an empathetic relationship between physician and patient, and treats each patient as an individual--all centered on restoring the mandate to care.

Book Description :

Oncology Nurse, Christine Magnus Moore, stood by the bedside of cancer patients for many years, caring for them as they endured major surgeries, chemotherapy and even the aftermath of grueling bone marrow transplants. They fought a battle with an enemy in their bodies: cancer. Some triumphed and some did not. Fighting for her patients' health, she thought of herself as a soldier on the battlefield and was amazed at how they dealt with their difficult road and that they often thanked her with a smile. As connected as she felt to her patients, she didn't fully comprehend the courage it took to confront cancer every day until she became one of them. Christine navigates the rough road involved with cancer treatment, experiencing exhaustion beyond belief, debilitating nausea and pain, and other side effects which are overwhelmingly more difficult than she'd ever imagined. Her road is arduous and humbling and she is taxed to her core in every way: emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually. Living on the other side of the bedside, she feels vulnerable when some of the doctors and nurses she's worked with become her caregivers...on top of all that her love life begins to present challenges as well. Christine emerges a cancer survivor and gains a profound understanding of the suffering her patients had weathered, discovering that her life has been re-calibrated. She embraces her higher purpose with an amplified vigor and empathy to help others dealing with the disease. Through the darkest of times, she finds the deepest grief and tears can produce the greatest strength and passion.

Book Description :

This short book documents a series of unique interpersonal human encounters between a physician Dr Terry Hannan and his patients. These encounters have occurred over a period of more than forty-five years of direct patient care as a physician in Internal Medicine and an interspersed 12-year interval as a Palliative Care physician. This personal journey highlights the profound depths of human encounters that can occur during the distress of people being unwell-physical disease or dis-ease (the latter describing those who have the physical manifestations of severe stress). The verbal and physical release from short or long-term inner torment has not only a profound effect on the patient (often healing) but also on those at the bedside who were willing to 'listen and read the signs'.The ability to 'listen' and allow the sufferer to be at ease with their clinical state is inherently a learnt process and at no stage in the medical professional's life does it become easier. It becomes an art only when the listener becomes at ease with their own humanity and their individual limitations. Quite often this intimate listening involves confronting one's own death or loss as well as that occurring in the patient. Why I as a physician have been able to be the conduit for the people in this book (and others I have treated) I cannot fully explain. I do know that I am more at ease with the tasks involved because those whose lives I touched also provided me with healing and eased my journey through life.While writing these words I am reminded of a personal incident as junior doctor in the 1970s when I was less wise and obviously did not recognize aspects of my own self. In an old army style open ward hospital, I was communicating with a patient when an elderly Greek man across the ward beckoned me to come and he said, "You are like the great Greek physician Asclepius (or Asklepios) because of your ability to listen." I hope I have fulfilled his definition of me.Dr Terry J. Hannan

Book Description :

In beautifully crafted vignettes, physician and NPR commentator David Watts explores the world of modern-day medicine and reveals the emotional truths and practical realities at the heart of the doctor-patient relationship. Bedside Manners is an engaging, often surprising investigation into what happens when we sit down and talk openly about vital issues of health and mortality. Combining the grace and precision of a poet with the down-to-earth, compassionate manner of a doctor who deals with the problems of real people every day, Watts describes situations both odd and touching: the patient who stays awake during an endoscopy to ward off demons; the woman who recites poetry to get through a frightening treatment; the man who arrives at Watts’s office bearing Internet research on syndromes that have little to do with his own condition; and the seventy-four-year-old architect who faces a tough cancer diagnosis with dignity and courage. Readers will come away from these tales of difficult diagnoses, irreverent colleagues, brave survivors, and examining-room poseurs sharing Watts’s own sense of humbled astonishment. As he tells each story, Watts closes for the reader the protective distance many doctors employ, and touches all of us who have felt vulnerable in the position of patient. Refreshing, wry, and reassuring, Bedside Manners holds important lessons for both healers and those who seek their help. From the Hardcover edition.

This study of the transformation of the relationship between doctors and patients from the mid-Sixties to the mid-Seventies has acquired the status of a minor classic. In this paperback edition the author has added an afterword on patient autonomy that encompasses some more recent changes in the practice of medicine and the evolving field loosely, but inexactly, characterized as bioethics. He has left intact his portrayal of the earlier, epochal changes that are the subject of the book.

Book Description :

Patients and families in acute hospital settings want to bridge communication gaps between them and the nurses that care for them. Standardized shift report common practice is nurse to nurse communication involvement. The patient is not any part of that report. With the start of every shift, including the patient and/or their families will improve communication, thus improving patient satisfaction (Baker, 2010). The importance of handoff is written in the literature, and it includes patient satisfaction and even accountability of nurses where communication is done at the bedside with the patient doing safety checks. By using a bedside communication tool called SBARQ (situation, background, assessment, recommendations and questions), critical patient information is transferred from one nurse to another while including the patient in their own plan of care (Effken and others, 2011). Surveys on patient satisfaction that focuses on bedside report will be analyzed and will show improvements of patient satisfaction.

Book Description :

Health systems need to set priorities fairly. In one way or another, part of this important task will fall to physicians. How do they make judgments about resource stewardship, and how should they do so? How can they make such decisions in a manner that is compatible with their clinical duties to patients? In this book, philosophers, bioethicists, physicians, lawyers and health policy experts make the case that priority setting and rationing contribute significantly to the possibility of affordable and fair healthcare and that clinicians play an indispensable role in that process. The book depicts the results of a survey of European physicians about their experiences with rationing and other cost containment strategies, and their perception of scarcity and fairness in their health care systems. Responding to and complementing these findings, commentators discuss why resource allocation and bedside rationing is necessary and justifiable. The book explores how bedside rationing relates to clinical judgments about medical necessity and medical indications, marginal benefits, weak evidence based medicine, off-label use. The book highlights how comparative studies of health care systems can advance more effective and fair bedside rationing through learning from one another. From a practical standpoint, the book offers a number of strategies for health care systems and clinicians to work in tandem to allocate and ration resources as fairly as possible: how to foster more attention to fairness when rationing at the bedside, how to avoid exacerbating health disparities when allocating resources, how to teach about bedside rationing to students, how to discuss rationing more explicitly in the public arena and in the doctor's office.

Book Description :

The mechanization of medicine has submerged, its humanism. The physician no longer ministers to a distinctive person but concern himself with a particular malfunctioning organ. The distressed patient is frequently forgotten or relegated to the background. A thought process is essential for discussing and understanding a symptom. This book, for the first time brings the doctor to the bedside of the patient for history, clinical examination, investigation, and finally the diagnosis. This book discusses the art of medicine in a simple dialogue style- between the patient and the doctor- and shows through bedside teaching, the treatment of an illness or a disease, rather than the patient. This illustrated volume containing twenty case studies sensitizes the reader to look a patient holistically, not just the body, but mind and emotions too. This unique volume teaches medicinal science as an art of healing, where modern medicine is not just restricted to science and technology.

Book Description :

Change of shift report is a critical time when nurses transfer information about the patient. Failure to communicate efficiently can cause medical errors. A typical nurse-to-nurse report does not allow the visualization of the patient or patient/family concerns to be addressed. This can cause vital information to be missed, therefore placing the patient at risk. In order to provide safe patient care, the adequate transfer of information needs to be provided. To decrease the frequency of medical errors, the implementation of a standardized communication tool is required. The use of bedside shift report is essential to nursing practice. Bedside repot is a method of nurse to nurse handoff communication performed at the patient's bedside. Nurses are able to assess the patient in person while obtaining vital information. A nurse's accountability can be higher while including the patient in their plan of care and patient satisfaction improved. Any issues and concerns can be addressed at the moment, increasing patient safety. As concerns arise with the traditional method of nursing handoff tool, the need for bedside shift report is needed to increase patient safety, therefore decreasing the number of medical errors and sentinel events. Bedside shift report is implemented to a medical surgical unit with the main goal of increasing patient safety using an improved method of nurse-to-nurse handoff communication. This paper will describe the problem, solution to the process of the issue, implementation plan, evaluation, and dissemination plan. It will also describe studies before and after the implementation with nurse and patient's perception of the process. Results from the review of studies shown reveal how other clinical settings have benefited from bedside shift report, improving patient's safety.
