Dealing with a Patient with SSRIs’ Prescription

Therapists often have the most contact with health care clients (Drake, 2008). Therefore, they are in a prime position to interact with them and prevent adverse reaction to medication. This contact is important for helping clients on multiple medications and those experiencing side effects. The aim is to help the client take medication correctly and cope with side effects effectively. Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) are antidepressant medicine, which has been received with both applause and criticism. It was referred to as wonder drugs when they first came off production lines, but with time, some studies have claimed that these drugs are not effective for normal, mild, or routine depression. According to some studies, SSRIs are not more effective than sugar pills except in severe depression.

Psychopharmacology and Mental Health

Psychopharmacology is a vital discipline in mental health (Wegmann, 2012). Psychopharmacology explores how medical disorders influence the central nervous system. There are many conditions that influence psychotic manifestations. In order to make an accurate diagnosis of psychiatric conditions such as depression, schizophrenia, anxiety, dementia, and other psychotic conditions, medical disorders that also manifest with psychotic symptoms must be ruled out. Such medical disorders include infections, dementias, tumors, stroke, hypoglycemia, head injuries, vitamin deficiencies, and end-stage renal disease. Psychopharmacology teaches the principles of making accurate psychiatric diagnosis.

Culture comparison: Chinese v. America culture

United States of America is a country with people from diverse cultures. The diversity of culture does not hinder interaction. In fact, it allows for people to learn, understand and respect each other’s cultural differences. Personally, I am a Chinese hence been raised to follow the Chinese cultural beliefs and practices. The Chinese culture differs greatly from the American culture. I had an opportunity to experience the difference between my culture (Chinese) and my best friend’s culture (American). My friend and I went to an American restaurant for a meal. At the restaurant, I got an opportunity to observe his eating habits and overall table manners.

Quality Improvement in health care is comprised of numerous frameworks.

Quality Improvement in health care is comprised of numerous frameworks. Equitability is one of the pertinent elements of QI. It helps in ensuring that all patients are offered the same quality of health irrespective of their personal attributes (Johnson, 2011). Efficiency is the second framework of QI. This framework averts the misuse of medical equipment or human resources. The enhancement of health care delivery is inherently associated with the capacity of the systems to remain efficient. Timeliness acts as another significant component of the frameworks for quality improvement.

Personal Statement major in communication.

I intend to major in communication. This is a course I recently chose as I previously had not idea of what major to choose. My decision to choose this major was largely influenced by my participation in volunteer work as well as speeches from my class professor. I am a club member of AGS honor society and a volunteer in Blood Drive. I believe these experiences have exposed me to the world of communication and made me realize the need for people to have adequate skills for communicating with other people and also public speaking.

The arrangement of health care service delivery is such that patients receive treatment from a team comprising interdisciplinary professionals (Behm & Gray, 2011). Therefore, a therapist is an important member of a team that includes physicians, psychologists, psychiatrists, nurses, social workers, nutritionists, and other specialized professionals. In relation to mental health service, the therapist works closely with psychiatrists and psychologists to discuss and address issues of concern to the client including medications, medication compliance, side effects, and other important aspects.

Caper Film heist as a narrative strategy in movies

The heist as a narrative strategy in movies means that characters have to be created in a certain way. Most of the characters in such films take the role of villains, who plot to achieve an agreed goal. The characters who take the role of a villain formulate a plan such as a bank robbery. The villain expects to execute the plan and escape. The villains are headed by the “ideal man” who leads the group. Other characters that comprise the villain group must all have special qualities that make their plot seem achievable (Telotte, 1996). One character may be a computer genius who can tap into surveillance and security system. Another character may be the mole that leaks security information from the intelligence service.

Differences between QI and Performance Measurement

Quality improvement and performance processes are two distinct processes. Performance measurement refers to the evaluation of an organization’s efficiency in the attainment or pursuit of its respective goals (Eccles, 2011). Numerous parameters are integrated into the framework of performance measurement. These parameters include financial efficiency, cost efficiency, and human resource planning among others (Lighter, 2010). These parameters serve as excellent indicators of an organization’s level of performance. In contrast, quality improvement refers to the different processes implemented in an organization in order to enhance its performance (Johnson, 2011).

Impact of Groundwater Polluting Sources on Distribution of Pollutants

Supply of safe drinking water is a major priority in many societies. However, pollution is still a major challenge towards achieving the goal of clean drinking water. In most places, drinking water is obtained from two sources; ground water and surface water. Many studies have focused on pollution of surface water. This trend is based on the assumption that ground water is not heavily polluted since their sources are protected. All sources of water contain contaminants. Ground water can also contain pollutants that originate from the geological composition of areas through which the water passes.
