Professionalism dilemmas experienced by health professions students: a cross-sectional study.

Professionalism dilemmas experienced by health professions students: a cross-sectional study. J Interprof Care. 2019 Sep 13;:1-10 Authors: Wang X, Ho MJ Abstract Health professions students will invariably confront professionalism dilemmas. These early encounters significantly influence future professional attitudes and behaviours. Heretofore, studies concerning professionalism dilemmas experienced by health professions students across disciplines have been limited. To address this issue, we recruited 56 students with clinical experience from the National Taiwan University College of Medicine in the nursing, dentistry, pharmacy, medical technology, occupational therapy, and physiotherapy programs to participate in this research to compare health professions students' understandings of professionalism and their experiences of professionalism dilemmas. We used group interviews to uncover students' experiences of professionalism dilemmas. We identified the six most commonly reported professionalism dilemmas and found that interprofessional dilemmas were the dominant workplace professionalism dilemma for health professions students. We also identified significant disciplinary differences regarding dilemma types and frequencies. We employed the framework of dual identity development to better understand the role of professional and interprofessional identities in interprofessional dilemmas. The professionalism dilemmas that individual students encountered were...

A question I’ve asked myself many times! As a small profession with a long history (as long as physiotherapy, TBH), it does seem odd that there are many, many pain rehabilitation services where never an occupational therapist has darkened the door. Some of the reasons lie within the profession: in general, occupational therapists are busy being clinicians and have little time for research. In New Zealand, few occupational therapists pursue higher degrees, and many avoid statistical analyses, experimental design, randomised controlled studies. In fact, some occupational therapists have argued that the tailored appr...

Once you begin to dip your toes into psychological therapies, it doesn’t take long before you begin to see TLAs all over the place. So today I’m going to post on two things: some of the TLAs, and why or how we might consider using these approaches in pain rehabilitation. The first one is CBT, or cognitive behavioural therapy. CBT grew out of two movements: behaviour therapy (Skinner and the pigeons, rats and all that behaviour modification stuff), and cognitive therapy (Ellis and Beck and the “cognitive triad” – more on this later). When the two approaches to therapy are combined, we have c...

Conclusions: Statistics also revealed that propulsion pattern was a predictor of response to therapy, as was weekly therapeutic duration, wheelchair-specific focus by the therapists, and stretching.

CONCLUSION: These findings offer insights into the particular challenges for rural clinicians in providing services under the NDIS. While there is improved funding support for people with a disability, this places additional pressure on rural clinicians who are already likely to be working at or beyond their workload capacity. Issues with recruitment and retention of new clinicians into rural and remote areas appear to be ongoing, which was identified as compounding the impact of the NDIS on existing service providers. Supporting the rural and remote workforce appears critical to avoid de-registration of existing NDIS serv...

AbstractBackgroundFrailty represents a particularly high risk group of geriatric patients whom require specialized care. Dedicated multidisciplinary frailty teams led by Geriatricians have been shown to provide better outcomes. The aim of this study was to compare the inpatient interventions and length of stay (LOS) between patients under the care of a dedicated Rapid Access Frailty Team (RAFT) versus general medical teams.MethodsData was collected on a total of 163 patients who were screened as frail positive using a screening tool, over a period of 10 months in 2018.  Basic Statistical Analysis was used to analyse d...

ConclusionThe use of a multidisciplinary team providing domiciliary assessments decreased hospital stay, facilitated maintenance of independent living and addressed both identified and un-identified needs in a frail older person ’s population. Further evaluation over time is needed to indicate impact on readmission rate.

ConclusionA significant cohort of ICTOP referrals report a fear of falling.  Specific physiotherapy and occupational therapy interventions aim to reduce the impact of this and our low rate of readmissions due to falls indicates the success of this program.

ConclusionThe Integrated Falls Prevention Service is the sole example of an operational integrated falls pathway in Ireland. This research will identify potential roadblocks for providers and clients along the pathway and will identify opportunities to. The results will also be used to inform service planning and resource allocation to ensure that this model of care is sustainable.

ConclusionThe ICT service has augmented the existing Day Hospital with timely multi-disciplinary assessment and treatment enabling older persons ’ independence within their home in addition to forward planning if dependency levels increase. Additional benefits include reduction of primary care team waiting lists and forging links with our community and local rehab services. Future ambitions include recruitment of specialist nursing and dir ect referral pathways from our community colleagues.
