We are the faces of the community, with the common goal of building a healthy community. I want to be able to say I made a difference in someone’s life rather big or small. Being a healthcare administrator will be a lifelong career that I look forward to doing in the future.
It is important that individuals with existing illnesses prevent further damage manage their current health status. The Healthy People 2020 website is informative and if utilized properly, an individual can research a number of different topics on how to improve/manage their health. The accessibility of healthcare services is an issue nationwide. Healthy People 2020 strives to see nationwide equality regardless of race; age, gender, existing illnesses, and socioeconomic status. Preventative services have a strong priority for people that would like to improve their health.
Health claims are booming in today’s world. Many of these consumers are being misled by advertising and believe that their choice will benefit their health. Although herbal medicines have been in existence throughout human evolution, I have chosen to take a deeper look into these health practices. I’m curious if this is just another health claim or if there are actual benefits to taking these medicines. Herbal medicines are sold in different ways from tablets, teas, extracts, capsules, powders, and fresh or dried plants.
Taking care of our health is an essential portion of our life. In modern world, our healthcare system promotes and expects us as an individual to actively participate in our own health care, actively participate in decision-making, manage chronic conditions, follow up with medical care. Health literacy supports empowerment to take control of our own health. It involves not only the transmission of health information, but means to acquire the knowledge, abilities and needed skills to ensure on that knowledge to maintain health. Patient education that includes self-directing care and empowerment has showed thru the studies to be cost-effective.
It is a long-term development plan to build healthier places for people to live in. The difference of Healthy Cities project from other town planning is that the Healthy Cities focus on human health. Therefore, its goal is to create a health-supportive environment which offers the best opportunity for people now and in the future to enjoy good quality of life (Barton & Grant, 2013). Healthy Cities requires political approach and innovative action. A local government has the role in engaging the residents in decision-making and political commitment, and by working together, they contribute to institutional change for better health.
Is health care a human right? One of the most important priorities in life is to have good health. Having good health is the state of being free from physical illness, mental illness, and injuries. Health care is an important aspect of our society. Many Americans need it so it should be provided by the government.
It is essential for the United States government to provide its entire citizen with a free health care. This system ensures that everyone has an access to medical services regardless to his or her social status. It is an important way of preserving life as free health care plan ensures free treatment to the entire citizen. In addition, it can play a big role of ensuring that there is an improved access to health services. Ensuring that all American citizens have an access to the right health care will in turn decrease health care costs.
Introduction It is extremely important that patient-centered care fosters a culturally sensitive and diverse environment designed to make patients feel welcome. While a patients’ safety must always be at the forefront of a providers concern, to become truly patient-centered health care providers must develop a good understanding of the values, beliefs, and attitudes of the population that it serves. This understanding will help improve the quality of health care delivered by the provider and the valuable of care received by the patient. Welcoming Environment Fostering a culturally sensitive and diverse environment is a crucial part of providing a quality health care service. By making patients of all cultures feel more welcome when they visit their health care provider, both the patient, and the provider will experience benefits.
These realizations however have not discouraged me. I believe that merging young dreams and mature willpower can effectively progress the world on a certain level if we take action now. As Bertrand Piccard once said, “Pioneering spirit should continue, not to conquer the planet or space, but rather to improve the quality of life.” I strongly believe that the wellbeing of the people is one of the most central aspects of life. Today, encouraging a healthy community is not just a necessity, but also our responsibility. Our health is not solely controlled by personal choices and heredity factors, but is also influenced by the environment we reside in.
