Assignment #8: Verbatim Patient Counseling Assessment (cont.)

Patient Counseling Guidelines
Prescription Medication and Products
Patient counseling has been shown to be most effective when the pharmacist uses open-ended questioning to ask the patient about his/her medications. The Indian Health
Service developed a checklist of open-ended questions to facilitate patient counseling on new and refill prescriptions. Please refer to the checklist below when counseling patients in the community pharmacy.
New Prescriptions
Indian Health Service Counseling Model checklist for new prescriptions:

What problem or symptom is it supposed to help?
What is it supposed to do?
2) How did your doctor tell you to take the medication?
How should you take your medication (special instructions for eye drops, asthma inhalers/devices, injectables, etc.)
How much?
How long?
How often?
What did the doctor say to do if you missed a dose?
How should you store your medication?
3) What did the doctor tell you to expect?
What good effects, bad effects, precautions to take?
What should you do if a bad reaction occurs?
4) Just to make sure that I didn’t leave anything out, please tell me how you are going to take your medication?
Prescription Refills
Indian Health Service “show and tell” counseling method for prescription refills:
1) What do you take this medication for?
2) How do you take it?
3) What kinds of problems are you having?

Traffic Jams: Osborn’s 73 Idea Spurring Questions Paper

...Brief Description of the Problem Traffic jams are common occurrences for many individuals who to commute to work using their motor vehicles. According to Hartman (n.d.), “the roadways leading into and out of most major cities can become gridlocked due to an accident, road construction or simply a high number of cars on the road. Traffic congestion can have a number of effects on drivers, the environment, health and the economy” (para. 1). The problems associated with traffic jams can be handled using many different decision making processes. However within this paper, I will use Osborn’s 73 idea spurring question process to create an idea checklist of questions that I will ask and answer as a means determining a solution to traffic jams from a new perspective. Osborn’s 73 Idea Spurring Questions Marakas (2003) proposed that Osborn’s model presents nine basic ideas: put to other uses, adapt, modify, magnify, minify, substitute, rearrange, reverse, and combine. 1. What are some new ways to utilize time spent in traffic jams? There are a lot of professional students at all levels, undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral. Many students can take advantage of this time stuck in traffic to catch up on homework since most schools rely on Internet as a mode of delivery. 2. How have people learned to adapt with traffic jams in their everyday lives? Many people realize that traffic jams are inevitable. Therefore, many people attempt to leave out as a means of beating the......

Nine Paper Dragons Case Questions

...It is interesting to read how NPD gained its’ success through the waste or trash of the United States and Europe. I think this is right in line with how Mrs. Cheung thinks; she wants to be ahead of all her competitors and gain every competitive advantage possible. By utilizing the paper waste of higher quality products in the US and Europe, she was able to bring this quality back to China where it was nonexistent. As you can see in the reading as well, Mrs. Cheung believes in rapid expansion to maximize revenue opportunity and that long term profits will come from taking on a lot of debt. But even as she said when speaking about the economic crisis: “Now the waves are so big, even some rocks are being washed away.” The economic crisis of 2008 did not only affect the small companies, but also the large and profitable ones like Nine Paper Dragons. I would summarize the company’s financial status as struggling at the point this article was written. The company’s unsecured notes were rated as BBB- in April, 2008 and downgraded even lower to BB+ in October of 2008. On top of that, even though the company had a successful IPO in March of 2006, the debt accumulated after this IPO really hurt the company when the financial crisis hit in 2008. This demonstrates Mrs. Cheung’s vision to take chances and be the market trend setter for her industry. It appeared though that she spread herself too thin through expansion and also through the large amount of debt she accumulated....

5 Research Questions for the Term Paper.

...5 Research Questions for the Term Paper. CIS-512 Andrew Dick Dr. Hamid Gooda 1. The first question of the five is about Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) processors. AMD is known for their processors, however, their line of products that they have stems even further now. In the microprocessors division they have the Athlon variety, X2, K10, X2, AMD Opteron (Miller, 2010), are the specific microprocessors that they have. They also offer servers. The processors of the Opteron are the processors that are available. AMD also offers motherboards to their users as well The AMD Crossfire series are available in this line along with many others. AMD recently acquired a leading video card manufacturer and is promising more advanced video capabilities coded into new versions of their motherboards. It also offers software and memory solutions for businesses. AMD is said to offer the same basic product as Intel, however, at a cheaper price. Intel is established as the market leader in producing motherboards and processing chips for personal computers, and their prices and development have influenced AMD from the start (Miller, 2010), AMD actually produces "clones" of Intel products as well as their own specific line of chips and motherboards as explained above. The AMD Athlon XP processor runs very close to an Intel 4 processor and it is about half the price (Miller, 2010). For example, if a side-by-side comparison is used between the AMD Athlon 64 X2(939) and the Intel Core 2......

Fustrated at 30 [Question Paper]

...30-year mortgage when I don't know if I'll have a job in six months? "I'm very frustrated. I feel like my generation got a bad deal. We initially got great jobs with unrealistically high pay. I admit it; we were spoiled. We got used to working one job for six months, quitting, then taking another and getting ourselves a 25 or 30 percent raise. We thought we'd be rich and retired by 40. The truth is that we're now lucky to have a job and, if we do, it probably pays half what we were making a few years ago. We have no job security. The competition for jobs, combined with pressures by business to keep costs down, means a future with minimal salary increases. It's pretty weird to be only 30 years old and to have your best years behind you!" QUESTIONS: 1. Analyze Bob using the Maslow need hierarchy. 2. If you were Bob's boss, what could you do to positively influence his motivation?...
