Preventing Falls, Patient Safety
Approximately 300,000 people a year experience serious falls in Switzerland. The majority of these accidents occur near-by or in the home. And they are unrelated to any particular activity. Falls are the most common type of accident among the elderly. Such accidents are not extremely serious, but falls can cause pain, reduce mobility and increase fear of falling again. People also fall while in hospital. This video is intended for patients and their families. It has been made to help prevent, and inform about, the risks of injury during hospitalization.

What is Primary Health Care ( PHC )?
This is an animated video lecture on PRIMARY HEALTH CARE based on the PARK TEXTBOOK of COMMUNITY MEDICINE. Hey guys.......welcome to abmbbs.....todays topic is PRIMARY HEALTH CARE.....now this is a topic which is quite complicated in the PARK TEXTBOOK but in this video we have condensed the chapter & given only the must know points. First up...what is the definition of Primary Health Care?? Primary Health Care is the essential health care made universally accessible to individuals & acceptable to them , through their full participation & at a cost the country & community can afford. Now, the definition in itself is pretty complicated & is bound to make you nauseous. But if you break it down to just the main points then it gets pretty simple..........Remember that Primary Health Care consists only of the bare essentials of our health care needs.It is the bare minimum which needs to be given in any medical condition.........….Secondly Primary Health Care must be accessible to the people to whom it is being given.A big tertiary care hospital located 20kms away from the patients home cannot be considered as Primary Health Care............Thirdly the Primary Health Care that is given must be acceptable to the patients.A rectal exam or a colonoscopy might not be acceptable to the majority of the population & hence should not be considered as Primary Health Care..............The community to whom the Primary Health Care is being given must actively take part in the process.Without their full participation Primary Health Care cannot be truly given.............................Finally,the healthcare that is given in Primary Health Care must be in accordance to the economic condition of the country. Next we come to the Principles of Primary Health Care...........Number 1 is Equitable Distribution.......the majority of the healthcare services in India are concentrated in the towns & cities.... whereas the rural areas which need healthcare services more hardly have any.....Primary Health Care aims to redress this imbalance by focussing on the rural areas & bringing these services as close to people's home as possible. Number 2 is Community Participation …....As mentioned earlier, without the full participation of the local population, discharging healthcare needs is not possible...So Government of India is training village health guides & local dais from the local community itself.....these people, being localites, can overcome the cultural & communication barriers more easily. Number 3 is Intersectoral Coordination...Government of India has realised that Primary Health Care cannot be provided by the healthcare sector alone.The different wings of the government must come together & work in an integrated fashion. Number 4 is Appropriate Technology.... Now it goes without saying that the government spending on healthcare is extremely low & our our public healthcare institutions do not have the money for doing costly diagnostic tests & treatments...So Primary Health Care in India must rely on low budget technologies..One such technology is ORS...it is a low cost treatment for diarrhoea & dehydration..it can be stored anywhere & hardly has any side effects. Next we come to the levels of Primary Health Care....First is the Primary level...it is the first level of contact between the healthcare setup & the patient.It includes Subcentre &....Primary Health Centre. The secondary level or the 1st referral level is the Community health centre. Finally comes the Tertiary level which is the 2nd referral level.It includes Medical colleges & hospitals. So......now lets talk about Subcentre in detail....this one...It is the most peripheral & 1st contact point between the healthcare facility & the patient.It has 3 employees.....the health worker male, the health worker female & voluntary worker.Also the ministry of health & family welfare provides 100% funding for subcentres. Guys....thank you for watching this video...Please do not forget to like , share & subscribe if you like our work....the abmbbs community is growing at a phenominal rate & we are truly grateful to you. We believe that medical education should be fun & free for everyone.......Bubyeeee......& happy learning..

All Nursing Degree Types: LPN/LVN, ADN, BSN, APRN, MSN & NP!
The field of nursing is filled with driven individuals who share a passion for caring for others, often more of a calling than a career. If you are inspired to help people, you may be considering becoming a nurse yourself. The healthcare industry is an ever-evolving area of study, in part because new innovations happen every day. Nursing is not only a solid career choice today, but it is a personal care role that you can be sure will continue to be vital in the future. Civilization will always need nurses, and if you enjoy the work, it can make an immensely rewarding profession. Visit our Scholarships Page: http://nursejournal.org/articles/nursing-scholarships-grants/ Nursing as a business is booming due to several factors. As the average lifespan of the population rises, nurses are in ever-higher demand to care for aging patients. Where in the past, a grown child might have taken on the responsibility of caring for his or her senior parent, the modern family structure often finds both husband and wife working outside of the home, leaving an opening for a nurse to care for elderly family members instead. There has always been a need for nurses in hospitals across the world. However, there is now also a rising demand for nurses working as personal aides and home care providers to patients who wish to be cared for in the privacy of their own homes. There are a number of paths you can take if you wish to become a nurse, each with varying requirements and commitments to match to a variety of lifestyles, career goals and time frames. You could spend years earning qualifications and degrees for more advanced nursing work, or you can complete classes in just twelve short months and jump into your new career. Now let’s explore all nursing degree types! Entry-Level Nursing Degrees If you’re seeking a nursing license but still want to finish quickly, Licensed Practical Nursing or Licensed Vocational Nursing program may be the best choice for you. LPN/LVN programs offer the fastest track to becoming a nurse, and you can generally complete them in one year. You can usually find classes nearby at a local hospital or community college, making this an excellent path to nursing while maintaining other obligations in your life, such as work or family. At the end of your LPN/LVN program, you’ll be eligible to earn your license after passing a state-administered nursing exam. If you’re seeking a degree and the career achievements that can accompany a higher level of education, consider earning your associate’s degree in nursing. An ADN meets the minimum requirements for becoming a licensed RN and offers a well-rounded education experience, usually completed in two years, which blends liberal arts classes with clinical nursing practice. You’ll take classes like anatomy, math, and biology in addition to having more practical application time. If you’ve graduated from an LVN/LPN program already, the length to your ADN could be as short as one additional year. With either option, LPN/LVN or ADN, you can become and work as a licensed nurse. An associate’s degree offers the ability to work as a registered nurse, which comes with a higher pay grade and greater responsibilities. As a registered nurse, you can also transition to the business side of healthcare and can more easily continue your education to a bachelor’s degree or beyond. The Bachelor of Science in nursing provides another path to earning your RN license, but we’ll get to that in a minute. To become a licensed or registered nurse, you’ll need to pass one of the state-administered nursing examinations, sometimes called the “boards.” If you’re seeking to practice as an LPN/LVN, you’ll be taking the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) for Practical Nurses. If you wish to become a registered nurse, you’ll have to pass the NCLEX-RN instead. Both exams are in place to ensure that it’s safe for you to begin practice as a nurse. These exams test your critical thinking skills, as well as the application of your learned knowledge, to ensure that your education has prepared you to safely apply what you have learned when providing direct patient care. The Bachelor of Science in Nursing is available as either a pre-licensure degree that will qualify you to take the NCLEX and become a registered nurse, or as a post-licensure degree for ADN-prepared nurses looking to advance their knowledge and their careers. Earning a bachelor’s degree in nursing opens the door to higher salary potential, more responsibility and even supervisory roles. If you choose this route to becoming licensed, you’ll be committing to four years of in-depth nursing coursework, and depending on the school you choose, the price of the degree can be expensive. If you’ve already earned your associate’s degree in nursing, you can usually complete the bachelor-level studies in two additional years.

What is Demography in Community Medicine / PSM
This is an animated video lecture on the Chapter DEMOGRAPHY from the PARK Textbook of Community Medicine. Hi...welcome to abmbbs....one of our subscribers....Dr. Ayesha Iqbal...had asked for a video on the chapter of “Demography” from the PARK TEXTBOOK of COMMUNITY MEDICINE....so this video is made on her request..... Now the 1st thing you should know about this chapter is that PARK contains a lot of data on the current demographic status of india....these numbers keep changing from year to year & from edition to edition....I will be dealing with them in another video...in this video I will be talking about the basics & core concepts of demography which does not really change much. So what is demography? Demography is the scientific study of human popuation... What are the different demographic processes...fertility, marriage, mortality, migration &.....social mobility. Next we come to Demographic cycle....As you can see it has 5 stages...High Stationary, Early Expanding, Late Expanding, Low Stationary & Declining.....The high stationary stage has both high birth rate & high death rate...so they end up cancelling each other...& the net population remains constant...India was in this stage till 1920........Next.......is the Early Expanding stage....here the birth rate remains high but the death rate declines...possibly due to better healthcare facilities..so..the net population increases....Next is the Late Expanding Stage.....here the death rate declines further but the birth rate also starts declining....so in total the population still continues to grow,.....India now belongs to this stage...........Next is the Low Stationary Stage....here both the birth rate & death rate decline & they both cancel each other....so the net population remains constant......Finally there is the Declining Stage....here the net population begins to decline because birth rate is lower than death rate....Germany & Hungary are currently in this stage.... Next we come to this graph....this is not given in PARK but I feel everybody should know this graph because it helps to understand the concept of Demographic Cycle better......the numbers here denote the stages ....the pink line stands for the birth rate , the blue line shows the death rate &.....the red line denotes the total population....so...once again quickly....in the 1st stage or high stationary stage the birth & death rate is high, so the net population is constant....in the 2nd stage or Early Expanding Stage the death death rate decreases but the birth rate remains constant...so net population increases...in the 3rd or Late Expanding Stage the birth rate begins to decline but the net population still continues to rise...4th stage or Low Stationary Stage stabilizes the population & finally the 5th or Declining Stage causes the population to decline because birth rate goes below death rate... Next tell me what is demographic window? It is that period of time in a country when the working age population is more...that is when people above 65years denote less than 15% of the population & people below 15 is less than 30%....India will be in this stage from 2010 to 2050.... Next is Demographic trap....It is that time when population growth is high due to high Birth rate & low Death Rate.....it basically denotes stage 2 of the demographic cycle Next we come to some definitions...it can get a bit boring for the next 45 seconds but trust me its important....1st is Crude Birth rate...it is the number of live births per year per 1000 mid year population. Crude Death Rate is the number of deaths per year per 1000 mid year population. Annual Growth Rate is Crude Birth Rate – Crude Death Rate Finally Growth Ratio is Growth Rate X 100

Inspiring Non Traditional Jobs in Nursing
Inspiring Non-Traditional Jobs in Nursing: From Changing the World to Leading the Way: What Can I Do with a Nursing Degree? Find out here! Nursing specialties inspired by a passion for social change A common answer to the question, “So, why did you go into nursing?” is, “To make a difference in my patient’s lives.” But, what if you had a drive to affect widespread change? Public health nursing, public health research, or epidemics research might be your dream field. Public health nurses are charged with caring for entire communities. They help determine which factors directly impact their community’s health and work to create interventions to help as many people as possible. Advocacy and health education are the mainstays of public health nursing. Public health research nurse. If research fuels your passion, public health nurse researcher is a profession to consider. Hospitals are over-crowded and understaffed. Nurses who provide care in the community allow for vulnerable populations to remain in their homes and out of the hospital and nursing facilities. Home health nurses visit the homes of their patients to perform skilled nursing tasks such as assessments, wound care, medication management, and care planning. Similarly, hospice nurses enter the homes of patients at the end of their life to make sure their needs are met. They focus on pain control, helping the families through the grieving process, and ensure the patient’s dignity is maintained. Community nurses may focus on one special population, such as patients with HIV, homeless patients, or immigrants. They work to ensure care is available that is specific to the population. Legal nurse consultants analyze and give opinions about delivery of care and outcomes related to medical malpractice, personal injury, or life care plan cases. A law degree is not necessary; most LNCs learn on the job¹. They may be employed by law firms, hospitals, insurance companies, government agencies, or themselves. Specializing in fields of medicine Pediatric nursing can be extremely challenging, but also incredibly rewarding. You could find yourself caring for primarily asthma patients on a respiratory care floor, trauma patients in the pediatric ICU, or babies weighing less than a pound fighting for their lives in the newborn ICU. Oncology nurses are specially trained in caring for patients with cancer. These often medically fragile individuals require chemotherapy, which the nurses have to be certified to administer, and their care is often exceedingly complex. If you’re ready to step away from the bedside, however, perhaps informatics is a possibility for you. As a health informatics nurse, you could work on a specific unit to help tease data from the patient charts to help the medical teams recognize patterns in care and outcomes. This is an excellent way to be a part of the healthcare team while forgoing direct patient care. Adrenaline boosters: Exciting fields for nurses! Do you spend your days off rock climbing, whitewater rafting, or skydiving? Perhaps you need a nursing job that gets your adrenaline flowing. Critical care nurses care for the sickest of the sick in intensive care units. They’re highly-trained individuals who drag patient's back from the brink of death on a daily basis. Critical care nurses are often required to respond to codes in the rest of the hospital. Emergency department nurses in trauma centers assess and stabilize patients who may come in after a car crash, gunshot wound, or home improvement accidents. Their patient loads vary from dehydration from the flu, accidental dismemberment, to mass casualty incidents, and much more. Case management nurses help to coordinate the care of patients with complex medical needs who receive multiple services. They often work with medical teams in the hospital to ensure the patient’s needs will be met upon discharge. Clinical nurse leaders are masters-prepared nurses who work in a specific hospital unit. They assess the needs of their patient population and determine which health issues are specific to them. Pressure ulcers, central line-associated bloodstream infections, ventilator-associated pneumonia all fall within the purview of the clinical nurse leader. These are but a fraction of the non-traditional nursing opportunities available!

Early Rheumatoid Arthritis: Clinical Guideline for Diagnosis and Management
Rheumatoid arthritis affects 1 in 100 Australians. It is a major cause of disability and psychological distress due to its chronic, painful and disabling character. Rheumatoid arthritis, an inflammatory autoimmune disease, is the second most common type of arthritis after osteoarthritis. The disease is more common amongst women and in the older age groups. Untreated rheumatoid arthritis can result in joint damage and deformities. The disease impacts on activities of daily living, capacity to work, and family life. Early diagnosis and medical intervention are critical to limiting structural damage and improving health outcomes. The Clinical Guideline for Diagnosis and Management of Early Rheumatoid Arthritis presents recommendations to assist and support clinical judgement of GPs in managing patients with rheumatoid arthritis. This program, in line with the Guideline, focuses on diagnosis, early management, and coordination of multidisciplinary care needs for people with rheumatoid arthritis. Pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions are reviewed. The Clinical Guideline recognises the need for every patient with rheumatoid arthritis to have a thorough assessment of their individual needs; access to a range of health professionals; and a comprehensive care plan. This program is one of four in the Musculoskeletal Guideline Series. The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) has developed national musculoskeletal clinical guidelines for general practitioners and other primary care health professionals for osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile idiopathic arthritis and osteoporosis.

Health Literacy Basics for Health Professionals
Seven steps to improve your patient's health outcomes Sixty per cent of Canadians over the age of 16, and 88 per cent of seniors, have low health literacy. This means that most patients leave their appointments without understanding what they've been told. "It's more than handing out brochures," says Cheryl Rivard, a patients as partners coordinator who helped create a health literacy video for health professionals. "There are simple steps we can all take to improve our patients' health outcomes, build better patient relationships and increase the efficiency of our entire health system." Health literacy is about making informed decisions and taking actions to promote and protect health. When patients or clients are health literate, they are better at making healthy lifestyle choices, communicating with health care providers and accessing information and services. It's becoming a larger issue as the population ages and incidences of chronic disease rise. Three questions patients should ask at each appointment 1. What is my main problem? 2. What do I need to do? 3. Why is it important for me to do this? Seven tips to improve your patient's health literacy 1. Look for clues that your patient has low health literacy. Common signs include missed appointments, not taking medications and incomplete forms. 2. Use audio-visuals, models or pictures instead of written words. 3. Use demonstration. 4. Highlight or circle any take-home points on written materials. 5. Use plain language, explaining the most important concepts first, and speaking slowly with no acronyms or jargon. 6. Ask them to "teach back" what you've explained to them. What would they tell their family member about their appointment today? 7. Encourage them to establish a support network, which could include family support, online or community resources. About the video The video was championed by the VCH Integrated Primary and Community Care initiative. The regional team encourages collaboration between family physicians and health care professionals to move us toward an integrated primary, community and acute care system. It was a partnership between VCH, the BC College of Family Physicians and the BC Ministry of Health.

Average Nurse Practitioner Salary 2017
How Nurse Practitioner Salaries and Employment Compare by State and Specialty Location, location, location: Your state determines your salary we have chosen several references to show you the avg NP Salary 2017 see below for a list of the references. As with any profession, your location plays a large part in determining your yearly salary. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the mean salary is $104,610 across the country and the highest average salary is in California--$124,330. Other top earning states are Alaska ($121,250), Massachusetts ($117, 860), Hawaii ($117,180), and New Jersey ($115,230)¹. One must consider the cost of living in each state to determine which state pays the most in relation to how much it costs to live there. Most nurse practitioners are employed in doctor’s offices, but hospital jobs pay better. The lowest paying states include Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Montana, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina, and Pennsylvania, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. However, many of these states have significantly lower costs of living than the highest paying states, so it’s possible the pay is relative. Specializing: Responsibilities and Income Potential NP Private Practice Income The most popular nurse practitioner specialty is the family medicine nurse practitioner. These nurse practitioners work primarily in clinics and medical offices to provide primary healthcare and preventative medicine across the lifespan. Their focus is generally on the well-adult population but can provide general care to most patients with an annual average salary of $89,043 according to payscale.com. The preparatory program is a two year masters degree. Pediatric nurse practitioners care for children in clinics and medical offices as well as in hospitals. Their mean salary according to payscale.com is $85,000. Pediatric nursing experience is recommended for application to the MSN program. Primary healthcare and preventative medicine is also the pediatric nurse practitioner’s forte, providing health education to parents as children grow and develop. Neonatal nurse practitioners generally work in neonatal intensive care units across the country. Depending on the level of the NICU, they work alongside physicians to assess, diagnose, and treat complex medical conditions of critically ill newborns. Their average salary according to payscale.com is $94,616. Autonomy of these professionals depends on the state and the hospital in which they practice. Women’s health nurse practitioners work in obstetrician/gynecologist offices to provide well-women exams, family planning, and reproductive counseling. According to Payscale.com, the median pay for WHNP is $85,730 Who makes the most? Top paying specialties Certified registered nurse anesthetists, or CRNAs, are the highest paying nursing specialty. While collaborating with anesthesiologists, they put patients under anesthesia during procedures in hospitals, outpatient surgery centers, dentist offices, and others. According to a Payscale.com report in May 2016, their average salary was $164,030. The CRNA program is one of the most competitive to enter with an extremely rigorous application process; several years of experience as a nurse in adult and pediatric ICUs are required. It is generally a full-time program and too demanding to work while in the program. Gerontological nurse practitioners work specifically with the elderly. Providing healthcare to the elderly is uniquely challenging and requires special knowledge and training. Payscale.com lists their average salary at around $95,990. Due to the aging of the largest generation our country has seen, a career as a gerontological nurse practitioner has fantastic prospects. Acute care nurse practitioners provide care in the hospital setting in critical care units such as intensive care and stepdown units. Years of experience as a registered nurse in critical care units are recommended for matriculation to the two year masters program. On average, acute care nurse practitioners according to payscale.com bring home around $97,000. They are an integral part of the medical team managing care alongside medical residents and other physicians for acutely ill patients. Psychiatric nurse practitioners are another high-paying specialty. They work in psychiatric hospitals and general medicine hospitals to provide mental health care to patients both in and out of the hospital. Reimbursement averages per payscal.com is $97,800 for their work. As with many nurse practitioner programs, nurses can earn their psychiatric nurse practitioner MSN online.

The Patient's Power in Improving Health and Care
Table of Contents Trevor's Story 6:31 Christian's Story 12:52 Norah's Story 21:10 Jarle's Story 27:27 Using Technology to Empower People 33:00 Importance of Curiosity 38:17 Q&A 47:11 Around the globe, we are facing a trifecta of healthcare challenges: financial constraints, an aging population, and an increased burden of chronic disease. We need to turn healthcare upside down, empowering our patients to take action for their health and helping physicians, nurses, and healthcare professionals move from being sages to guides. Patients, even those with chronic diseases, only spend a few hours each year with a doctor or a nurse, while they spend thousands of hours making personal choices around eating, exercise, and other activities that impact their health. How can we get patients to be more engaged in their care, and help physicians, nurses, and healthcare providers transition from a paradigm of “what’s the matter” to “what matters to you”? Through her work at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), Maureen Bisognano has worked diligently to support the IHI Triple Aim: improving the experience of patient care, improving the health of populations, and lowering costs. In this webinar she will present stories of patients and healthcare organizations that are partnering together with tools, processes, data, and systems of accountability to move from dis-ease to health-ease. Join us for this webinar and learn: • Lessons from the “flipped school” in the education system and how they can be successfully applied in healthcare to improve patient behavior. • How increased patient engagement can help to improve healthcare outcomes and deliver a better care experience while reducing costs. • Ways that technology can effectively improve data capture, patient accountability, and decision-making. • The impactful stories of four patients who became innovators in their own care. Maureen Bisognano is President Emerita and Senior Fellow at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement. She previously served as IHI’s President and CEO after acting as Executive Vice President and COO for 15 years. She is a prominent authority on improving health care systems, whose expertise has been recognized by her elected membership to the Institute of Medicine, among other distinctions. Ms. Bisognano advises health care leaders around the world, is a frequent speaker at major health care conferences on quality improvement, and is a tireless advocate for change. She is also an Instructor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, a Research Associate in the Brigham and Women's Hospital Division of Social Medicine and Health Inequalities, and serves on the boards of the Commonwealth Fund, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, Indiana University Health System, and NursingNow. Prior to joining IHI, she served as CEO of the Massachusetts Respiratory Hospital and Senior Vice President of The Juran Institute.

Live-in male helpers to take care of elderly men
http://www.straitstimes.com/news/singapore/more-singapore-stories/story/plan-more-male-helpers-singapore-hits-snag-20140914 Plan for more male helpers in Singapore hits snag PUBLISHED ON SEP 14, 2014 BY JALELAH ABU BAKER A push by a local maid agency to bring in more male helpers to Singapore has hit a snag because it has been found to be "not practical". Homekeeper, which last year announced plans to bring in up to 100 male "maids", has decided there is not enough interest after bringing in 10 from Myanmar. Issues include the longer time it takes for a male helper's work permit to be approved, the fact that he cannot be transferred to another family and families' reservations regarding living arrangements. "If there are women living in the house, families are not comfortable with a male helper also staying under the same roof," said Homekeeper general manager Mark Chin. Burmese care-giver Laminn Koko, 24 (left), helps Mr John Ashworth, 81, with his afternoon snack. ST PHOTO: SEAH KWANG PENG The role of live-in male helpers is to take care of elderly men, who might be too heavy for female maids to lift. They are paid around $600 a month, compared with around $2,000 for a male nurse. A Manpower Ministry (MOM) spokesman said there are around 30 male helpers here, and applications to bring them in are "very rare" and allowed only in "exceptional situations". There are more than 200,000 female maids here. Last year, Homekeeper decided to bring in more male helpers after saying there was a strong demand for them to take care of elderly men who may be bedridden, given the ageing population. But it found that getting approval for a helper would take one to three months. Families who wanted a male helper were willing to wait in the beginning, but as their needs grew more urgent, they became more impatient, Mr Chin said. Sometimes, prospective employers had to seek the help of their Members of Parliament to try to get the applications approved, he added. But this is only part of the problem. One 32-year-old male helper from Myanmar decided to return home after four months because the job was not what he had ex-pected. He thought he would only be taking care of the elderly man he was attached to, but he was asked to do housework as well. He could not be transferred to another family because MOM approves work permits for male helpers only on a case-by-case basis. Homekeeper chose to bear the return expenses for the male helpers who wanted or needed to be repatriated. Out of the 10 male helpers the firm brought in, six have left. The owner of employment agency JRS Business Express, who did not want to be named, said she has brought in one or two male helpers, adding that the application process is "quite tough". As for families who hope to hire male helpers, Mr Chin said his firm will still bring them in, but on an ad-hoc basis. jalmsab@sph.com.sg

Anticipatory Care Planning Application
Mainstreaming ACP (Anticipatory Care Planning) has been identified nationally as a priority to support delivery of the 2020 vision and the Health and Wellbeing Outcomes linked with the Health and Social Care Integration. The National Action Plan for ACP highlights the need to recognise and build on the many examples of good work around ACP being taken forward across Scotland. It responds to the challenge of providing care for a population with an increasing prevalence of complex needs, long term conditions and multiple morbidities through appropriate early intervention to optimise personal outcomes and quality of life. Taking forward large scale change across Scotland is a challenge that requires whole system organisational, professional and public awareness and support. During the many focus groups held with a range of stakeholders, the request for an ACP app continually arises. SCET has worked with Health Improvement Scotland to develop such an app. The ACP app gives an individual the chance to think about, discuss and plan ahead for any change in their health or care needs. It contains a feature that allows an individual to record how they feel about their condition and helps an individual to have discussions with other people involved in their care, for example, the family or GP. The app contains an appointments facility to allow the individual to record appointments (eg. with their GP, practice nurse, hospital consultant) and for reminders to be generated when the appointments are due.

Types of nursing diagnoses: Actual, Problem-focused, Risk, Wellness, Health-Promotion ...
In this video we are going to review the following types of nursing diagnoses: Actual Diagnosis Problem-focused Diagnosis Risk Diagnosis Wellness Diagnosis Health-Promotion Diagnosis Possible Diagnosis and Syndrome Diagnosis Then I will briefly talk about Potential Complication or Collaborative Diagnoses even though they are not actually types of nursing diagnoses. Not all textbooks will discuss all of the types of Diagnoses in this video so be sure to check with your professor which ones you need to know and apply. Also, depending on how old your textbook is you may see some terminology used to describe a type of nursing diagnosis that has since been re-labeled. This video will define the types of nursing diagnoses you see on your screen, and identify how they have been re-labeled in the 2015 - 2017 NANDA International Definitions and Classifications textbook. NANDA only uses three categories of nursing diagnoses – Problem-focused, Health Promotion and Risk Diagnoses. They also use syndromes within these three categories to cluster diagnoses that are closely related. http://youstudynursing.com/ Research eBook on Amazon: http://amzn.to/1hB2eBd Check out the links below and SUBSCRIBE for more youtube.com/user/NurseKillam For help with Research - Get my eBook "Research terminology simplified: Paradigms, axiology, ontology, epistemology and methodology" here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00GLH8R9C Related Videos: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLs4oKIDq23AfdIxE8NvwnhbORnb_dE_RJ Connect with me on Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/youstudynursing https://www.facebook.com/NursesDeservePraise Twitter: @NurseKillam https://twitter.com/NurseKillam Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/laura.killam LinkedIn: http://ca.linkedin.com/in/laurakillam

Surprise vet visit for Hyatt the blind feral cat - TinyKittens.com
This is Hyatt's story so far: https://youtu.be/kbzQj5CtuiQ Hyatt's roommate is Salia, who is from the same feral colony and is being treated for an ear polyp and infections. More about our rescue work: http://TinyKittens.com Our VIP livestream: http://vip.tinykittens.com Ways to help: http://TinyKittens.com/help Weight chart: https://bit.ly/2Hcj8oR UPDATE AUG 18: Ramona, Chloe and Rula's kittens (except for Aura) and the three Kinks kittens have all gone to their forever homes! UPDATE AUG 12: Cassidy's mama Sigma has joined Chapel, Coridan, Billings, Chloe, Ramona, Shelby and Sable in the Feral Recovery Ward/Kidney Disease Room. She will be getting a dental and full exam next week. UPDATE JUNE 22: Three new bottle feeder kittens have joined us from our new colony and will be sharing this stream with Chlomona and her kittens. Their colony: http://TinyKittens.com/harvie UPDATE MAY 11: Aura got a checkup today. Amazingly, after 140 tube feedings her lungs are still clear and Dr. F was blown away by how good she looks. We still have a long road ahead, but she doesn't seem to mind the tube feedings and is happy and extremely adorable otherwise. Chloe, Ramona and the other kittens all look great as well. UPDATE MAY 2: Aura went to the vet today for a checkup because of her stuffy nose that has been forcing her to breathe through her mouth, and her lower lip is developing a sore. The good news is that her temp is normal, her lungs are clear (yay), her respiration rate is good and she remains a feisty little fighter. Prognosis remains guarded, but every day gets us a little closer. UPDATE MAY 1: Chloe is being treated for mastitis, which is quite uncomfortable. It is helpful for kittens to nurse on her. Aura's nose is stuffy, so she has been breathing through her mouth from time to time. It may look alarming, but it is the same as when we get a cold and can't breathe through our noses. PLEASE NOTE: This is live, uncensored rescue reality. We make ourselves vulnerable by broadcasting live, 24/7, because we believe it is essential to share the largely unseen reality of cat overpopulation with the world... even when it breaks our hearts. If you have concerns about what you are seeing, the solution is to become advocates for spaying, neutering, compassion and Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR). While heartbreak is inevitable in the work that we do, we hope you will take great comfort and joy witnessing the transformations of the cats and kittens saved, who would otherwise have never gotten a chance to experience the love, comfort and pampered lives they deserve. Thank you for watching! Chloe Ramona are ferals raising their last litters of kittens in safety and comfort. They come from a colony of more than 230 feral cats, where 90% have been spayed/neutered thanks to Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) efforts. Our volunteers provide daily care and feeding to the cats who remain at the colony, regardless of rain, snow or face-spider season. Meet their colony friends and family: http://TinyKittens.com/happyforest UPDATE APRIL 3, 2018: A third pregnant feral named Rula has joined our feral caternity ward. She is also from the Happy Forest. UPDATE APRIL 2, 2018: Gwen "accidentally" trapped a pregnant feral cat, so we are going to see how she does sharing a room with Chloe. Chloe (ginger + white) and Ramona (pure black) are from the same colony, so it is likely they know each other. Chloe, Rula and Ramona will be part of our new project to map the DNA of her feral cat colony. http://tinykittens.com/dna Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/tinykittens Twitter: http://twitter.com/tinykittensHQ Instagram: http://Instagram.com/tinykittensHQ GUIDE FOR PEACEFUL COEXISTENCE: Be polite. Please don't curse, don't ask for subscriptions, don't ask personal questions, don't spam (including roll call requests & spamming emojis). No block caps. Thanks! OUR MODS ARE VOLUNTEERS AND THEY ARE TRYING TO HELP, PLEASE TREAT THEM ACCORDINGLY! Harassing a moderator inside or outside of chat is grounds for banning and the sharing of your info to other cams for them to ban you as well. Concerning Trolls: Ignore them. That's what they hate the most. Their goal is to upset you so you yell at them. They think this is funny. Thank mew so much to everyone who is watching!

World Health Organization ( WHO )
This is animated video based on the Chapter " INTERNATIONAL HEALTH" from the PARK Textbook of Community medicine. Hi.Welcome to abmbbs..todays's topic is WHO or the World Health Organisation.....in this video we will discuss the main topics in the chapter International Health in the PARK Textbook of Community Medicine.......................Now, to understand the origins of WHO we need to 1st understand the concept of quarantine...... In 14th century Europe , people were terrified of Plague.....so ….ships suspected of harbouring the infection were detained at port for a period of 40days before they could enter the city....the idea was that, with the passage of time , the underlying infection would either manifest into full blown disease ….or die out....thus , protecting the citizens...this was called Quarantine....but there was no uniformity in the quarantine measures in the different parts of the world......so,..... in 1851 ,..... an International Sanitary Conference was convened.... at Paris.....to bring about some order &uniformity......but it failed.......... In 1902, …...a Pan American Sanitary Bureau was set up , to bring unformity in the quarantine measures in the American states.......it was the world's 1st international health agency...............it was later renamed Pan American Health Organisation..... in 1958...&, its headquarters is in Washington DC. Next.....after the 1st world war, the Health wing of the League of nations was set up in 1923. Then …..there was the 2nd World War.......following which the United Nations was set up.......the WHO , was, 1 of the many parts of UN..... So,... in April 1945.....a conference was held in San Francisco ,in which …..Brazil...& China...proposed, that an international health organisation should be established......so.....on 7th April 1948......the WHO, formally came into existance.......& this day is celebrated as World Health Day.......a World Health Day theme is chosen every year , to focus attention on a specific aspect of public health for that year......for example...in 2015....it was Food safety......in 2016 it was Diabetes.....& ….in 2017 ,it is....depression.... The objective of the WHO..... is the attainment of highest levels of health by all people....it is a part of …..but ….not subordinate to the UN......it has its own constitution, own governing body & budget......Switzerland is a part of WHO but not United Nations..... Next we come to the works of the WHO.....it helps in the prevention & control of specific diseases like......small pox....& now...polio....it helps, in the development of health services....improvement of family health...........improvement of environmental health.......maintenance of health statistics.,....like the International Classification of Diseases or ICD which is updated every 10 years............promotion of biomedical research....maintenance of health literature &......cooperation with other global organizations..... Next, we come to the structure of the WHO.......the WHO has mainly 3 organs.......the world health assembly.....the executive board.....&....the Secretariat..... The WORLD HEALTH ASSEMBLY is the supreme governing body.....it is also called the “ Health Parliament ”......it meets annually, usually in May....in Geneva.... The EXECUTIVE BOARD ,consists of 34 members , of which 1/3rd are renewed annually.....it meets twice a year.....in january....& in may....it gives effect to the decisions of the assembly....& can also take action itself in case of emergency..... The SECRETARIAT is headed by the director general.....&...it provides technical & managerial support to member states.. The WHO is divided into 6 regions.....each headed by a Regional director......as you can see in the table...the headquarter of the south east asia region is New Delhi....,. This brings us to the end of the topic.....now just for the sake of completion, we will discuss some other important world organisations......first comes.... UNICEF.....it stood for....United Nations International Childrens Emergency Fund......it was set up to deal with the rehabilitation of children in war ravaged countries.....in 1953, it was renamed....United Nations Children's Fund.......it's headquarters is in New York....the UNICEF is actively promoting the GOBI campaign now....G for growth chart, O for ORS, B for Breastfeeding & I for immunization. Next is the UNDP......which stands for United Nations Development Programme There’s the UNFPA.....which stands for United Nations Fund for Population Activities. There's the FAO......or Food & Agriculture Organization....its headquarter is in Rome There' the ILO.......or the International Labour Organization....its headquarter is in Geneva Finally.....there's the World Bank....it is governed by a board of governors.....&....it gives loan for projects that lead to economic growth of the country...

Taking It to the Streets: Nurse-Family Partnership Fosters Parenting Skills in At-Risk Communities
The spectrum of human health research is truly expansive, from the tiniest of molecules to whole communities. UNM’s Center for Development and Disabilities (CDD) spares sophisticated instrumentation and complex microbiology to focus on societal health determinants – like supporting prenatal care and strengthening parent-child relationships through a national evidence-based model called the Nurse Family Partnership, or NFP. With key support from the NM Children Youth and Families Department (CYFD) the CDD is participating in this home-visiting health program that connects licensed nurses and new mothers to share knowledge and support for at-risk young families. Through NFP, nurses are deployed in Albuquerque’s South Valley to work with low-income, first-time mothers to support good prenatal care, healthy pregnancies and positive parenting. When expectant mothers (less than 28 weeks pregnant) voluntarily enroll in the program, a specially trained nurse makes home-visits throughout the pregnancy and until the baby turns two years old. “Initially, weekly nurse visits involve pending moms and dads, and oftentimes grandparents who might be heavily involved in childcare,” says NFP Principle Investigator Marcia Moriarta. “Topics for discussion are based on the families’ desires – anything from maximizing baby safety to what to expect from a one-year-old. “The critical component here is our nurses,” Moriarta adds. “They’re highly qualified, incredibly empathetic, enormously patient and truly caring. Our CDD nursing professionals make great home visitors and have been the strength of this nationally recognized, evidenced-based program.” By helping these vulnerable young mothers achieve healthier pregnancies and births, stronger child development, and a path toward economic self-sufficiency, the mother and child benefit, as do whole communities.

Summa Health Engagement Award: Patricia A. Galon
Dr. Galon, associate professor in the College of Nursing at The University of Akron, has been highly-instrumental in creating a primary care clinic in University Park to serve persons with severe mental illness. The Margaret Clark Morgan Integrated Care Clinic is a collaborative effort among the Margaret Clark Morgan Foundation, Community Support Services, Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine and Pharmacy, and the UA College of Nursing. The facility is housed at Community Support Services within the University Park neighborhood and is staffed by UA College of Nursing nurse practitioner faculty in addition to other health professionals. People with serious mental illness are a vulnerable population with limited access to appropriate physical care. Recent research indicates that people with severe mental illness die, on average, 15-25 years earlier than the general population. Despite several setbacks in the two-year planning phase, Dr. Galon and her peers persisted in trying to provide access to care in a convenient and familiar setting for this most neglected population. The clinic opened its doors in November 2008 and is already serving the community and providing training and research opportunities to nurse practitioners and their students.

Advanced Illness And End-Of-Life Care
Few areas of health care are as personal, or as fraught, as care for people with serious illnesses who are approaching death. At a point in their lives when their needs are often as much social and spiritual as they are medical, people are confronted with a fragmented, rescue-driven health care system that produces miraculous results but also disastrous failures. As the nation's population of individuals over the age of 65 is expected to reach 84 million by 2050, addressing these challenges becomes increasingly important, requiring coordination across multiple sectors and levels of government. Innovations are needed to produce improvements in care delivery; better communication between clinicians, patients and families; greater uptake of advance care planning tools; and payment systems and policies that support patient needs and preferences. The July 2017 issue of Health Affairs, "Advanced Illness and End-of-Life Care" includes a comprehensive look at these issue and others. On Tuesday, July 11, Health Affairs convened a forum at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, featuring panels of journal authors presenting topics including: -Care At The End Of Life -Financing & Spending -Quality Of Care & Patient Preferences -Hospice & Palliative Care Alan Weil Janet Corrigan Melissa D.

Why Can't America Have a Grown-Up Healthcare Conversation?

The Power of CultureVision
The more you know about someone's healthcare beliefs or practices, the more your care and treatment plans can be designed for the best health outcomes possible: Those which take into account your patient's world view. Transcultural health care focuses on the cultural beliefs and lifestyles of diverse groups of people and on the use of this knowledge to provide culturally appropriate patient care. The complexity of providing such culturally appropriate care to our population today and in the future calls for a simple and comprehensive tool to guide healthcare providers now.

How to Find a Nurse Practitioner Program Online
Finding CCNE or ACEN Accredited Nurse Practitioner Programs You Can Take Online Are you ready to take your nursing career to the next level? After years as a registered nurse at the bedside honing your skills and developing a substantial knowledge base, it’s time to go back to school. Perhaps you have financial motivations; maybe you are looking for advancement opportunities and greater responsibility. Regardless of your motivation, the possession of a registered nurse license affords you the opportunity to advance your career with just a few years of classes and clinical experiences. how to get an online np degree: A Master of Science in Nursing degree is the minimum education required to become a nurse practitioner. All MSN programs for NPs include a concentration in a particular patient population focus. These means the decision to become an NP programs also involves deciding what patient population you want to work with before beginning your graduate program – family/individual across the lifespan, adult-gerontology, pediatrics, neonatal, women’s health/gender specific, or psychiatric-mental health. As a nurse practitioner, your scope of practice will be expanded to include disease diagnosis and health assessment, which includes the ability to order diagnostic tests. In many states, you will also have the authority to develop treatment plans and prescribe medication without physician oversight. With this increased responsibility comes a significant increase in salary. Your nurse practitioner program may be completed entirely online, in the classroom, or through a combination of both methods. But even if you earn your degree online you can expect your program to include advanced didactic coursework and significant hands-on learning in the clinical setting. Once you graduate, you will sit for a national certification exam to become certified in the patient population that aligns with the focus of your graduate program. National certification is typically the final step to meeting all requirements for advanced practice RN licensure through your state board of nursing. As a nationally certified and state-licensed nurse practitioner, you will be an asset to the hospital, clinic, or established medical practice where you work, and you could even go on to start your own independent practice or join a partner practice with other NPs. It is vital that you investigate the scope of practice for nurse practitioners in your state. In some states, nurse practitioners enjoy full autonomy and can practice and prescribe to the full extent of their knowledge and training without physician oversight of any kind. This would include the authority to prescribe all medications (including narcotics). In other states, this same level of authority is allowed, but only as long as you maintain a collaborative agreement with a licensed physician and can confer via teleconference. In states with the most restrictive laws, nurse practitioners can only diagnose illnesses, order diagnostics and develop treatment plans under the direct supervision of a collaborating physician (as in, in their office or hospital with the physician on-site) and must have their narcotic prescriptions approved by said collaborating physician. MSN requirements, curriculum, and introduction to how to get an online NP degree Unless you’re an ADN-educated nurse enrolling in an RN-MSN program or you have a bachelor’s in another field and are making a career change to nursing through a direct-entry MSN program, the standard requirement to enter an MSN program is a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

🇯🇵 Ageing Japan | The Burden of a Graying Planet | 101 East
Japan faces a demographic crisis. Its population is falling rapidly due to an ageing population and declining birthrates. In two decades from now, seniors will outnumber children under 15 by nearly four to one. The situation is now so critical that adult nappies outsell baby nappies in the country. Japan's overall population fell by a record quarter-million to 127.8 million last year, and by 2060, the population is expected to fall by an additional one-third to as few as 87 million. And 40 per cent of those remaining will be over 65 years old. The demographic decline has led to a spike in social problems and 'kodokushi', or "lonely deaths", which is a Japanese phenomenon that came about in the 1980s, is now growing increasingly common. Four million Japanese elderly live by themselves, while family members who choose to care for an elderly relative often experience isolation and a burden themselves. As the country ages, the Japanese government must ensure an ever dwindling workforce can pay for a growing number of pensioners. Japan hopes to raise consumption tax by five per cent and the retirement age to 70 years to ease pressure on the social security and pension system. But those who work in hospitals and services for the elderly believe the country will have to embrace immigration to plug gaps in the workforce. Yet, Japan's ageing pains are creating commercial opportunities for some: Companies are exploring new technologies to capitalise on an emerging market they call the "silver yen", including androids that can work as carers and robotic legs for patients who are too old to walk themselves. On this edition of 101 East, we ask if Japan can overcome being a rapidly ageing and declining population.

AUCD Webinar: Screening and Linkage to Services for Autism SaLSA  Study of Patient Navigation for
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is under-diagnosed and under-treated in young children, particularly in disadvantaged populations. Children from minority and low-income populations receive referral, diagnosis and treatment later and less often, and report having less information about how to obtain care, more problems obtaining care, and fewer support services to connect them to care. This webinar will provide an overview of the Screening and Linkage to Services for Autism (SaLSA) study, which aims to evaluate an autism patient navigator program for low income families with young children who screen positive for ASD. Preliminary results of the study, including individual and system barriers to obtaining screening, referral, early intervention evaluation and services will be described.

Population: Challenge and Response (USAID, 1974)
This program presents a broad overview of the problem of overpopulation and the attempts underway in several countries to meet the challenge of curbing population growth. Support for such programs by the United Nations and through the United States Agency for International Development are briefly discussed. Each country's customs and religous views are considered in designing the best solutions to offer men and women. Countries profiled include El Salvador, the Philippines, Liberia, Tunisia, India, and Korea. The programs in Korea are discussed in somewhat greater detail, as they are considered to have been more successful than efforts elsewhere. Throughout the program, emphasis is placed on the threat overpopulation poses to the quality of life of the people, the health of children already born to a family, and the economic growth of the country.

CNA Salaries - How Much Do Nursing Assistants Make?
To Find Out All Of The CNA Certification Schools That Are Available In Your Area Go To: http://trainingcertified.net/cna-certification-getting-the-right-cna-training/ CNA or Certified Nursing Assistant is one of the most of rewarding career in the hospital industry. This becomes more obvious if one take into consideration the time required for the acquiring the CNA certificate. Advancement in the medical field has resulted in the increase in the aging people all over the world. The doctors are now able to save the lives of people suffering from those disease which had no known cure in the past years. As a result more and more people are living longer and the population of aged people is increasing. But most of these aged people are highly dependent on medical care and support. This has led to a huge increase demand for nurses who have to play a supportive role for these patients. To cater to this ever increasing demand the CNA’s have come into picture and no wonder that their perquisite is huge. The salary earned by a freshly certified CNA range from $12 to $20 per hour. As a fresher this is really huge. And you do not spend so many years for your certification course as the nurses do for completing their course. A CNA course typically last for few weeks to 12 months which includes the internship. So within a year of your enrollment for your certificate course you start earning a handsome salary. This is a real attraction for the youth population who want to start earning and gain financial freedom as soon as possible. Moreover, unlike the nursing courses, a CNA course demands no special eligibility criteria or merit. Regions The salary of CNA’s is not uniform all over though. Depending on the demand, one state may offer higher salary and other states may offer lower. For example the State of New York offers an annual salary of anything between $21,000 and $35,000 . Whereas the same CNA may expect a salary of $19,000 to $33,000 in the state of Florida. It is up to you which state you decide to work in after completing your certification course. Most of the states will recruit certified nurse along with registered nurses and you can find your dream job in your place of choice depending upon the vacancies available. The salary of a CNA varies in different states but an experienced CNA obviously will earn much more that a fresher. Because the salary offered to a CNA goes steeply upwards with her experience. A moderately experienced CNA with about three years of work experience CNA earn well above $20,000 a year and another CNA with five years of experience will earn $33,000 a year.

MaximsNewsNetwork: (http://www.MaximsNews.com ) This is a keynote speech of Dr. Nafis Sadik, Special Envoy to the UN Secretary General for the session "Sharing Experiences for South-South Leverage" of the International Conference on Promoting Family Planning and Maternal Health for Poverty Alleviation, held in Yogyakarta, Indonesia on 27th October 2010. Partners in Population and Development (PPD): Beyond 2014 is the official website for the UNFPA-led global review process of the International Conference on Population and Development Programme of Action. Dr. NAFIS SADIK, MD Dr. Nafis Sadik served as Executive Director of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), with the rank of Under-Secretary-General, from 1987 through 2000. On her appointment in 1987, she became the first woman to head one of the United Nations' major voluntarily-funded programmes. Dr. Sadik has consistently called attention to the importance of addressing the needs of women, and of involving women directly in making and carrying out development policy. This is particularly important for population policies and programmes. In June 1990, the Secretary-General of the United Nations appointed Dr. Sadik Secretary-General of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD), 1994. On the Conference, Dr Sadik has said: "When the essential needs of the individual are addressed, those of larger groups--the family, the community, the nation and indeed the planet are more likely to be kept in the right perspective. One of the challenges to the Conference is to find the balance between individual rights and responsibilities on the one hand, and the rights and obligations of the wider society on the other." A national of Pakistan, Dr. Sadik was born in Jaunpur, India, the daughter of Iffat Ara and Mohammad Shoaib. Dr. Sadik's contribution to improving the health of women and children of the global community has brought her many international awards and honours.

Fact Finder: Aging Baby Boomers Pt.1
They say it takes a village to raise a child, but what happens when the child has to take care of the village? Doctors, hospitals, and nursing homes are bracing for the swell of seniors expected to redefine healthcare. The healthcare industry is looking for its own vaccination against a potentially crippling illness. It's brought on by 78 million baby boomers soon to crowd hospital halls. Seniors are living longer, keeping more elderly people with us than ever before."As you age, every decade after fifty-five, the frequency with which you use healthcare grows drastically, as much as fifty-percent a decade," said Dr. Ferdinand Venditti, Vice Dean of Clinical Affairs at Albany Medical Center. The Capital Region statistically has an older population already than others in the nation. While it is expected to grow, the number of doctors may not."The physician population is made up of the same baby boomers, in many cases, as the rest of the population and they're going to age out over time," Dr. Venditti said.There are already fewer beds for patients.When asked if this is something that the current nursing home, or extended care model, is ready for, Michelle Mazzacco said, "the part of that, that worries me the most is the workforce side of that."Fewer people will also be paying in to health insurance plans."It's not just about a growing aging population, but there's a shrinking younger population," said Dr. Philip McCallion, sociologist and director of the Center for Excellence in Aging Services at UAlbany.Studies suggest boomers visit the doctor and the emergency room more often than their parents did and will continue to. Albany Med sees the trend in its departments."They're in higher and higher demand everyday," Venditti said.For instance, one in four is expected to have diabetes. The price to pay for it is an ailment on its own."We really are just at a point with healthcare costs that we can't afford for them to become a greater and greater percentage of the GDP. State Medicaid systems are really at their tipping point so, looking at how to manage patient outcomes better," Mazzacco said.Especially if our neighborhoods will be looking older -- sooner."Baby boomers themselves are going to be very active in trying to shape what health care looks like, what long term care looks like, because they've shaped everything else," McCallion said.There are several remedies being tested now, before the healthcare industry is too sick to heal.Nurses and doctors are relying more on technology to keep costs for families down, and keep families together at home. On CBS6 News Tuesday at 11:00, we look at the solutions others are looking at to meet the demands of aging baby boomers.
