Professional Interview
I chose my mother to perform the assigned interview with. She has worked for Wingate of Wilbraham for a long time now. It was a job she obtained after working for MassMutual. I chose to interview my mother because she has acquired tremendous experience from working within multiple settings in the health field. She provided vital information during the interview from her past experiences which will enable me to learn and grow from. I provided my mother with background information regarding the purpose of the interview assignment.
I began the interview by asking her how she came about her career in the healthcare field, she responded, “What got me started in this field is that I had prior experience at MassMutual Financial group overseeing a team of associates and reviewing their work loads and assignments. When I saw the opportunity to be a staffing coordinator, at Wingate of Wilbraham, it seemed to be a much less stressful job than the one at MassMutual. I never received a degree but the combination of college courses that I took which included pre-med, pre-nursing, counseling psychology and then business management and all the jobs I had within those related fields subsequently gave me a variety and a mix of experience and knowledge for my current position.” This really showed me how valuable work experience, coupled with academic experience, can be helpful when applying for jobs or deciding what type of jobs to apply for.
The interview discussion then moved onto the work environment she dealt with and her daily duties. I asked her about her previous working conditions as well and what skills were utilized and necessary in her field. She responded by stating, “My daily duties are to insure that a 24 hour nursing and rehabilitation facility is safely and adequately staffed for the…...

Overdiagnosis in the Health Field

...Health Overdiagnosed Review Overdiagnosis is a something that goes on all around us yet the general population doesn’t seem to notice. Overdiagnosis means that an individual is diagnosed with conditions that will never cause symptoms or death. Overdiagnosed provides a doctor’s firsthand experience in the healthcare field and how often over-diagnosis’s occur. Dr. H. Gilbert Welch’s, along with his colleagues Dr. Lisa M. Shwartz and Dr. Steven Woloshin, methodology is a series of their first-hand experiences in a wide range of medical practices that led to people becoming diagnosed with diseases and illnesses that have yet to cause them life altering problems. Majority of the time the diagnosed “problem” never developed into a problem at all. If the treatments in order had minimal, if any, side effects and were worth it in the long run then the diagnosis would have seem to be appropriate. But, in the cases represented in this book, there was no statistical evidence to say that to be true. Every patient would undergo treatment for their diagnosed problems with the mindset that the problems would oppose no future problems. But, that isn’t the case in real life. The treatments that the doctors had ordered had multiple side effects varying from slight discomfort to, in some instances, potential death. This book does a very good job of explaining how often people are over-diagnosed with common every day diseases and illnesses. Breast cancer, cervical cancer, lung......

Field of Dreams: Citi Field

...Field Of Dreams: Citi Field A road trip to a Mets game is always filled with anticipation of fun. The one and a half hour drive seems to take an eternity. Citi Field can be seen halfway over the Whitestone Bridge. Resembling Ebbets Field, its stunning architecture takes my breath away. In the parking lot, you realize just how enormous the stadium is. It looks so much larger than it is portrayed on television. Right outside the stadium, the song Meet the Mets is usually playing through the speakers. A loop of the PA announcer listing all the things that are not allowed in the stadium is played overtop the song. A security person gently pats your pockets and then signals for you to go through the turnstile. Inside, the Jackie Robinson Rotunda is beautifully designed with staircases and escalators to bring you to field level seats. To the right is the Mets Hall of Fame and team store. The hall of fame is filled with archival pictures and memorabilia. Straight ahead is a sculpture of Jackie Robinson’s number 42. First timers race to the sculpture to take pictures with it. At the top of the escalator, you finally get the sense that you’re at a ballpark. The aromas of hot dogs, burgers, and fresh roasted peanuts fill the air. The field comes into sight after you walk a little bit to the left or right. The scoreboards glisten from the sunlight. The dirt looks as soft as a pillow, and the freshly cut grass smells almost fragrant. The foul lines are pristinely...

Field Activity

...Field Activity 1 The lecture I chose to attend for this assignment was a Drugs and Health class, HEAL 310, taught by David S. Anderson. The purpose of the class is analyzes drug use, with emphasis on positive aspects, and presents alternatives to drug misuse and abuse. I decided to choose this lecture because the topic of drugs and health seemed interesting. Also drug and alcohol related abuse is a current issue within my family so one day I would hope to be able to help certain family members who are dealing with such problems. The lecture was on Intervention and EAPs and on Addiction. He started the lecture with a quote by Thomas Edison, “many of life’s failures didn’t realize how close they were to success before they gave up,” relating the quote to how individuals would be on the right track on recovering from addiction then possibly slip up and drink or smoke again. An interesting question he addressed to the clas was, What is the number one strategy to reducing death in drinking and driving? The class answered with strategies referring to reducing drinking and driving but not realizing the strategies to reducing deaths is different than reducing drinking and driving. The answer was having safer cars with seat belts, and airbags. The next topic was on the maintenance enabling system of substance use disorder, which means someone else is ‘softening the blow’ and cleaning up after the person who has the addiction problem. The class also defined intervention as......

Field of Dreams

...Guiding clients worldwide through the admissions maze to acceptances at 450+ top schools since 1994 Home » Medical School » Medical Sample Essays » Field of Dreams Field of Dreams I heard the familiar sound of the back door closing gently. My father was returning from driving his dirty, green John Deere tractor in one of our fields. Although he begins his day at 5:00 a.m. every morning, he usually returns at around 7:00 p.m. I never really questioned his schedule when I was a child, but as I entered high school I wondered how my dad could work so hard every day of the week and still enjoy what he does. He works long hours, becomes filthy from dirt, oil, and mud, and worst of all, can watch all his hard work go to waste if one day of bad weather wipes out our crop. There have been many years when our raisins were rained on, our cherries were hailed on and our apples were literally baked by the sun. The uncertainties of farming are so great and so challenging. It never ceases to amaze me when my father wakes up every morning to start work, that he does so with gusto. The life of a farmer can be laborious and stressful, yet my father continues to do his work with passionate enthusiasm. His dedication and pride mystified me throughout high school. Only after I entered Big U, did I start to understand how he can persevere and face the challenges of farming. I entered Big U like a small child wandering through a park. Never in my life had I been exposed to anything so......

Field and Flux

...Magnetic Field & Flux: Ampere’s Law & Faraday’s Law Physics 204, Yaverbaum John Jay College of Criminal Justice, the CUNY (The following consists of 4 problems) I. A long coaxial cable, a section of which is shown above, consists of a solid cylindrical conductor of radius a, surrounded by a hollow coaxial conductor of inner radius b and outer radius c. The two conductors each carry a uniformly distributed current I, but in opposite directions. The current is to the right in the outer cylinder and to the left in the inner cylinder. Assume µ = µo for all materials in this problem. a. Use Ampere's law to determine the magnitude of the magnetic field at a distance r from the axis of the cable in each of the following cases. i. 0 < r < a ii. a < r < b b. What is the magnitude of the magnetic field at a distance r = 2c from the axis of the cable? c. On the axes below, sketch the graph of the magnitude of the magnetic field B as a function of r, for all values of r. You should estimate and draw a reasonable graph for the field between b and c rather than attempting to determine an exact expression for the field in this region. II. The coaxial cable continues to carry currents I as previously described. In the cross section above, current is directed out of the page toward the reader in the inner cylinder and into the page in the outer cylinder. Point P is located between the inner and outer cylinders, a distance r from the center. A small positive charge q is introduced into...

...TASK: Using examples clearly distinguish between the following. a) Clinical psychology, Health psychology, psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine b) Show how the other three are interrelated with health psychology Clinical psychology is both a health care profession , and a health-related scientific discipline (Carr, 2012). As a profession clinical psychology involves using clinical judgement to apply knowledge from the scientific discipline in clinical practice with clients and patients. Clinical practice involves the assessment, treatment and prevention of psychological problems in a range of populations. For example helping a boy who is failing in school and defiant with his parents and teachers; helping a woman with depression regulate her mood more effectively; helping a family of a person whose psychotic whose psychotic symptoms have been reduced through using medication to develop a supportive style to prevent relapse. Scientific knowledge about clinical psychology is developed through initial academic training, ongoing continuing professional development and research.

Field Experience

... Field Experience Name: Institution: Early childhood programs are among the hotly debated topics but with good reasons. How enough is formal and informal learning to benefit young children? Under which settings are our young ones equipped to behave exemplary, learn better and their minds braced up for the opportunities and challenges education presents? This paper therefore explores the nutrition, safety, health and physical fitness surrounding the programs and its resources to attain maximum benefits obtained by the children. Health and safety Some needs should be atleast our priority if not our second nature. Protecting our young ones from neglect, abuse and health hazards is imperative in operating such a program. To start us off is the indoor environment as this is the place they spend most of their learning time. The programs were reasonably up to the task as the classrooms were sparklingly clean and physically accessible. My practical observation saw me discover that the 2 programs boast approximately 37 square feet per child of the usable classroom space activity excluding the lockers, bathrooms and hallways. The classroom management was top-notch with the spaces nicely divided; from private visible area, pathways, storage areas to spaces meant for playing individually or together in appropriate groups. The rest, sleep and eating areas and periods are strictly observed, ostensibly to create a good time with children. The sleeping area, free form restraints, is well...

Field of Tears

...Field of Tears - genaflevering Are the horrible memories from the Irish Civil War still lingering in the grass on the field? What does the tears of the grandfather symbolize? “Field of Tears” is a short story written by Declan J. Connaughton in which he tells the story about an old man and his granddaughter called Rita. She frequently comes to visit him at the nursing home where he has to stay against her will, simply because he is too old and weak. She knows this and it’s also one of the reasons why she goes to see him that often, to spend time with him before it’s too late which makes every second she has with him precious. Rita wants to take him out for a drive and the grandfather guides her to a field he remembers from when he was stationed during the Civil War. As he sits in the car facing the sea, he starts to recall a memory from the field and suddenly Rita isn’t there anymore but his comrades from the war are. “Field of Tears” is a historical fiction short story that follows a man who took part in the Irish Civil War which followed the Irish War of Independence, where the Irish people fought for the right to be an Irish Republic. England wouldn’t let them have their will but they made a treaty that ended the British rule in most of Ireland. This wasn’t satisfying enough for some of the Irish republicans that didn’t want to take part in the “Provisional Government”, who supported the treaty and this lead to a civil war between these two opposing groups.

It is also one of the National’s Largest Cancer Centers, a National-Renowned Children’s Hospital and an Environmentally-Friendly Hospital Designed Just for Women. On April 7th, 2015, under the directions of Dr. Ramnarayanan, we had a trip to Hackensack University Medical Center to see how supply chain is used in the running of one of the best hospital in the United States. In the trip, the Vice-President of Supply Chain Management showed us how the supply chain works in HUMC to help them to improve their work efficiency, and told us about the benefits that the supply chain bring to HUMC. With the new technology used into the supply chain system in HUMC, automating manual processes become possible. Before, HUMC used paper work for the input and output of the medical device from the storage, the statistic of the medical device cost a lot of time and labor. Right now, they use the new technology to make this work much easier. The new handheld device can scan the barcode of each medical device, record the input and output of the medical device at the first time, then, send the data to the computer for statistic. Also, this can help the doctor to......

Field Analysis:

...FIELD ANALYSIS: UNDERSTANDING THE KEY PARTIES AND THEIR ROLE IN A NEGOTIATION Instructions: For purposes of this assignment, assume that you are the negotiator who is tasked with a salary (on call time, step increases, overtime for captains and majors) and benefits (insurance while employed, insurance after retirement, accrual of leave time, retirement multipliers) dispute between a large municipal county with a strong mayor and the sheriff’s department for the county. You are negotiating the contract on behalf of the sheriff’s office. The purpose of this activity is to give you an opportunity to construct a field analysis on your relationship with a specific other negotiator. This tool should be helpful when negotiators have to consider multiple parties—on their own side and on the other side—who can affect a negotiation outcome, and whose needs and interests must be considered. The metaphor for this planning tool is a soccer field (see diagram below). On the field would be members of your team and members of the other team (A, B). On the sidelines are backup players, coaches, trainers and other team personnel (C). In the stands are “fans” who are watching the negotiation, members of the media, and other direct observers (D). Finally, the elements outside the stadium--the location of the stadium, the weather, and other “context factors” which can shape how the game evolves and is played (E) YOU/YOUR TEAM | OTHER/OTHER’S TEAM | 1.
