Didthe reading change your perspective on something? Explain

Thereading changed my attitude on HPV. For instance, I realized that thevaccine of HPV available, its uptake is inconsistent. Throughapplication of theories of behavioral uptake, I understood theintentions to receive HPV vaccine among men and women. My attitudetowards HPV also changed for social support as the determinants foran individual to be vaccinated. In essence, this contributed to myperceived ability of being vaccinated against HPV.

Howmight you be able to use this information in your career in healtheducation provide specific examples

Thisinformation can be used to help me in career development bystrengthening my perceptions and attitudes regarding the socialsupport for vaccination in regard to HPV. It also enhances my beliefthat underlies the perceptions and attitudes of social support forHPV vaccination. Through understanding of intention of HPV, I can beable to help men and women protect themselves from infections. It hasbeen noted that many people engage in sexual relations with multiplepartners and this can greatly influences the chances of them beingill. The current research is applicable to the theories of behavioraluptake. The research shows that the in U.S alone, women get infectedafter one year of sexual encounter. Through, this, I can educate themin regard to best methods of sexual encounters through avoidance ofmultiple sex partners.

Howdoes the reading impact or relate to the community?

Thereading is imperative in our society since the cases of HPV have beenon increase. Sexual, Psychological and relationship influences theinfection. It has been noted that women are stigmatized when theyhave HPV. In my community, women have been posed to have less sexualdesire, arousal, frequency, orgasm and more negative feelings towardssex.

Feelingabout the safety of the patient

Afterwatching the video, I realized that the statistics are staggering, the toll of the human heartbreaking and humbling. I also realizedthat in patient safety, we can never double check too many times orbe careful enough. Recently I was injured and left in the parkingarea. I was then referred to a neurologist for post concussivedisorder. This got me thinking since my brother had died from medicalerror on the part of the nurses. I realized that the patient’ssafety can not be wholly guaranteed and thus we need to share ourstories to make changes within the health sector.

Thevideo brings the message home since we have been fighting against thesame vices for all a long time. After watching the video, I alsorealized that the mistakes were so many and common and this video canbe used as we strive to be more careful. The video also present thetruth where the nurses and doctors should treat human with respect.Error should be given the least room. I also feel that the healthsector has been far much neglected and there is a need to have aparadigm shift to reduce the number of cases arising from medicalerror.

Cultureof Safety

Asthe future health IT professional, I can ensure that a saferenvironment is reflective of the vigilance and compassion for thepatient welfare as important areas of competent healthcare. It is away to improve the safety by learning the causes of errors. As an ITprofessional, I can design system that makes less harmful and lesscommon errors since errors always occurs. I would also ensure thatthe environment is improved where the nurses may attract newer peopleto nursing and engaging in professional environment. In addition, Iwould ensure that the systems are up to date to ensure that theirbreakdown is at controlled levels.

Ican also ensure that the systems that are used in the healthcare areregularly maintained. The obsolete equipment should be replaced withnew ones. I would also ensure that my support staffs and all thestakeholders are well trained to meet the demand. I would also ensurethat the departments are funded well to counter the extra expensesincurred. I will also develop several safety climate scales in thefield of patient and health safety. Safe climate in hospitals havebeen found to be inclusive of the senior management.

Theauthor presents the working shits and overtime which has been onincrease coupled with shortage of RN. Less has been known in regardto prevalence and the effect on the safety of a person. Theparticipants worked longer than required and thus their safety is atrisk. The risk of error making increases with increase in the workingshifts when the workers work over time.

IHIhas tried to emphasize on innovation of creating systems for safetyacross organizations. The article tries to understand the safety ateach level in order to identify, segment population, predict risk andact accordingly. The resource can be useful to the organization fromsafety silos to safety systems towards a harm free workingenvironment. The resource aims at innovating areas of safety that hasreceived less attention whole safety system, develop leadershipmethod and measure new measures of mean and harms to address them.

Thearticle tries to understand the patient safety how it has beencompromised. It presents a clear comprehension for better comparison,understanding between jurisdiction and facilities. It tries to bringchange improvement and translate into language. It presents anongoing improvement in patient safety.
