This study shows a strong correlation between ignorance and a lack of control of asthma symptoms. The second study by Ulrik et al. (2009), "Disease variability in asthma: how do the patients respond? -- and why?" from the Journal of Asthma was to explore patterns of self-management in adult asthmatics, and found, interestingly enough, that education was not necessarily a panacea: despite instruction, two-thirds of the study subjects would increase their use of inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) when their symptoms worsened, but only 23% took their controller medication in the case of deterioration, although 59% were instructed to do by their physicians. Despite doctors' efforts to educate patients on the importance of minimizing inhaler use and using medication to prevent attacks, the study concluded that the patients' preferred strategy for management of disease variability did not seem to be driven by their knowledge of the disease.

One shows that a lack of instruction regarding the use of inhaler medication can result in more preventable trips to the emergency room, and greater healthcare costs to the system as a result, overall. However, the second study shows that other issues besides 'ignorance' regarding appropriate self-care must be addressed -- education alone will not solve the problem of patient's ineffectual 'tweaking' of their own treatment at home.

Indeed, interaction with the patient on this point would demonstrate a very poor inhalant technique, a factor which the physician failed to consider before increasing the patient's dosage. Additionally, the physician failed to check concordance with respect to the patient's history of medicine use. This might have revealed some shortcoming in the subject's own methods of self-administering medication, including inconsistent usage and occasionally skipped doses. A useful instrument for

Evidence-Based Practice Translation of Research in Evidence-Based Practice Nursing involves men and women who are willing to help the patients with their skills like health maintenance, recovery of ill or injured people and the treatment. They develop a care plan for the patient sometimes in collaboration with the physicists or therapists. This paper discusses the current nursing practice in which I am involved and needs to be changed. Identification of a Current Nursing

Antipsychotic Medication and the Physical Health Problems of the Patient With Mental Illness More and more attention is now being given to the mental disorders especially in U.S. And due to this increase in attention an increase has also been noticed in the treatment of these mental health issues (Zuvekas, 2005). About 30% of the total U.S. population that is between the ages of 18-52 is being affected by mental health

The findings yielded a direct correlation between poor inhaler use and poor literacy: Poor inhaler technique was found in 89% of patients reading at less than the third-grade level compared with 48% of patients reading at the high-school level (Nowlan, Williams, Baker, Honig, Lee 1991). This study's result would have a direct impact upon traditional patient educational efforts, as health education still tends to rely heavily on printed materials. These

This particular aspect is what most medical trainers miss when dealing with interns or newly appointed nurses. They found that oxygen use, if below the necessary requirement can be damaging, so can its overuse. In another study, it has been found that using oxygen below the prescribed level can instigate damage in the organs, respiratory structures and can be especially damaging for patients who have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease

Abstract In order to gather the challenges, it is necessary to rehabilitate organizations into learning institutions at the first step, so as to make them superlative. To make a change from a traditional to a learning organization, the main factor is leadership, which brings to light the goals and the main insights of the organization, assists workers to achieve their aims and helps them put up a learning condition which is
