Appendix B

 

Biomedical and Biopsychosocial Models

 

What causes illness? There are different beliefs about the root cause of ill health, which affects the way the caregiver communicates. This activity will help you understand the biomedical and biopsychosocial models that encompass the different theories and beliefs about illness, and will help you gain insight into the types of communication to expect with each model.

 

Categorize each theory, belief, or caregiver communication under the correct model-biomedical or biopsychosocial-by placing an "X" in the appropriate column as shown below. Then, answer the questions that follow.

 

 

Biomedical Model

Biopsychosocial Model

Causes of Ill Health

Germs make you sick.

X

Individual "frame of mind" can add to or reduce ill health.

Illness is a physical phenomenon.

Illness can be treated through physical means.

Illness is a physical, mental, and social phenomenon.

Emotions and feelings are taken into account.

Approach is efficient and definitive

Diagnosis is evidence-based

Approach is personal

Approach is impersonal

Most patients prefer caregivers who use this model.

Diagnosis can be time-consuming

Caregiver Communication

"When did your symptoms start?"

"It must be painful, how do you feel about it?"

"Which parts of your body hurt?"

"Are you having difficulty working because of it?"

"Is it a sharp pain?"

"How long does the pain last?"

"Do you have supportive family or friends?"

"What pain medicines have you tried?"

 

  • 1. What are the main differences between the biomedical and biopsychosocial models?
  • 2. Which model would you prefer your caregiver follow? Explain.
  • 3. Which model do you think is more effective in helping an ill person return to good health? Explain.

 

3rd Assignment: Managed Care

  • Due Date: Saturday
    • Write a 500- to 775-word paper in APA format describing the pros and cons of managed care versus traditional insurance. What are the pros and cons from a consumer's perspective? A caregiver's perspective? From the perspective of a caregiver, would you prefer traditional insurance or one of the managed care options (HMO, PPO)? Justify your response. (Must have at least three supporting cited references within the body of your paper)
  • Post your paper as a Microsoft® Word attachment.

Okay, J I'm on it.

CP: Health Communication Technologies

  • Resource: Appendix C
  • Due Date: Day 3
  • Review Appendix C.
  • Post a 300- to 400-word response summarizing health communication technologies. Provide any personal experiences in using or viewing the use of these technologies. How will these health communication technologies change the field of health care as their use becomes more widespread? Give specific examples. [Include cited supporting references] Submit in APA format.

 

Appendix C

Health Technologies and Patient Care

 

Everyone who has a cell phone, computer, or television knows the electronic changes that have occurred in message-sending and delivery. These changes come so rapidly that within a year, major strides take place and equipment becomes obsolete. The medical field, in its quest to provide the best patient care while controlling costs, has flirted with the use of specific electronic technologies. Finally, in the twenty-first century, changes are being made that can improve patient-caregiver relations.

 

Exploring the Need

 

The ideas of electronic medical records (EMRs), the use of telephone to deliver patient care (telemedicine), and video consultations are in the process of being integrated within the United States and in third-world countries. With the help of federal legislation, grants, and data that supports their value, the proliferation of these systems is growing. Financial grants to home health agencies and not-for-profit health care groups come not only from the federal government but from other nonprofit agencies, such as home care advocates and equipment companies. What is important to health care administration and caregivers is a general idea of the use and efficacy of these technologies, so that when the opportunity arises to bring them to an office or facility, information can be analyzed and an educated decision can be made to utilize them. Thus, external stakeholders within medical facilities in surrounding areas can be the catalyst that makes electronic medicine happen.

 

Electronic Medical Records (EMRs)

 

EMRs are a conversion of paper medical records to electronic-based medical records. EMRs are an accurate and positive way for health care personnel to communicate information with one another without losing any of the credibility of that information. Patient information can follow patients wherever they go, by computer, CD-ROM, or DVD. Physicians and other caregivers have access to these records, as well as pharmacists, making it much easier to fill a prescription. Illegible handwriting on paper-based records and documents accounts for nearly 100,000 deaths per year in the United States (Foreman, 2006, p. 1). Although the concept of EMR has been around for nearly 20 years, in 2006 only 24% of health care providers were using them because of the cost of initiating the systems and training users.

 

Telemedicine

 

Telemedicine allows caregivers to treat patients who are at home or at an alternate facility. This is especially valid in rural areas within the United States and in developing countries. Telemedicine is especially advantageous for HMOs, because patients can keep their physician despite a move, and specialists and primary care doctors can confer over the telephone. The Health Care Administration (HCA) testifies that physician referrals have dropped nationwide because of the ability to remain with a doctor through telemedicine. Some gray areas of telemedicine are:

  • Medical reimbursement for telephone medicine
  • Improvement of image processing and display performance
  • Standardizing medical information
  • Protection of privacy
  • Organization of diagnosis support systems

 

Videophone

 

Some medical facilities use a videophone for patient consultations. These are initiated by telephone, and when both parties are positioned, the video camera is turned on. The machine has a blood pressure cuff, monitor, scale, and a pulse oximeter machine for wellness checks. An alternate method to the videophone is an Internet-based machine that can conduct a patient visit. It will remind the patient of the appointment time, and after the patient checks in the machine will ask the appropriate questions. There is not a person on the other end of the phone, but it has been noted that this machine often finds impending cardiac events and gets the patient to the hospital in time.

 

Broadband

 

The FCC approved creation of a pilot program that will assist public and nonprofit health care providers in building state and regional broadband networks. These networks are dedicated to provisioning health care services and will connect them to the dedicated nationwide backbone of Internet 2-a new pilot federal program that includes delivery of health care information to providers. The program is being paid for by the Universal Service Fund, and construction of the networks will bring benefits of advanced tele-health and telemedicine services to rural areas of the nation. Patients will have access to medical specialists not available in their areas, such as cardiologists. They will be able to access these services without leaving their communities. Use of these technologies can reduce medical costs and facilitate the transmission of medical information among doctors and health care facilities. Delivering tele-health services, including telemedicine applications, have the potential to revolutionize the current health care system throughout the nation (Telecommunication Reports, 2006).

 

The Future of Health Technology

 

The advent of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the leadership of the federal government to provide economic stimulus and incentives, and the interests of medical companies throughout the world have started the process of getting technologies in health under way. Currently, there are still diverse standards, equipment, and software that are not compatible, but the process has begun. Fifty percent of our nation‘s health care is nonprofit, and without government intervention these facilities will not be able to convert to the new technologically-advanced system. Caregivers in the twenty-first century are poised to initiate new standards of patient care, to economize our health care system, and to ensure the safety and good treatment of patients.

Hi Chris,

 

I am just checking up on the assignments that I needed help with today, was wondering if you needed anything? Let me know. Thank you.

Health communications technologies are conveniences for both medical professionals and the patients. Electronic medical records (EMRs), telemedicine and video consultations are three of many new components associated with health communications technologies (Foreman, 2006). Traditionally, medical records were kept at the hospital of the patient's primary care physician. If the patient was treated at another hospital those records would need to be faxed over to the current hospital for examination by the new doctor. This process was time consuming because the records had to be pulled up, each sheet sent through the fax machine and then the receiving hospital would need to wait for the transmission to be completed. Sometimes the fax machines could be out of ink, malfunction or have previous faxes coming in. All these elements prolong the time that the patient has to be in the hospital and delays there treatment. Electronic medical records allow medical professionals from any hospital to access the medical records of the patients on any electronic device, hand-held or otherwise. This helps to expedite the diagnosis and treatment of the patients.

The majority of patients are required to get medication after the doctor's visit. Traditionally, the doctor would either write a prescription or call ahead to the specified pharmacy and have the prescriptions prepared. These methods once again were time consuming even with the call in by the doctor there was no guarantee that the medicine would be ready. With the introduction of telemedicine the patient can call in and access the automate system. The automated system allows the patient to place fill or refill their prescriptions, state a time and a day for pick-up. I have used this feature several times through Walgreens and the automated system would ask for additional prescriptions to be filled or refilled and provide the operating times (Telecommunications Reports 2006).

Video consultations remove previously present barriers to medical intervention. A doctor in America could assist with a specialized surgery in Africa through a video consultation which greatly increases the chances of the success of the surgery and the patient's recovery. In the past doctor's were limited by their ability to travel, airline schedules and their ability to communicate with the international doctors. Today all types of video conferencing and conferencing tools have translation features that remove the language barrier from the situation. With the implementation of these types of health communication technologies the price of medical care will decrease and become readily available to everyone (Telecommunications Reports 2006).

The purpose of open communication is to make all levels in the organization both familiar and comfortable enough to share new ideas and also to voice concerns. One of the most important areas that can benefit from open communication is the customer service arenas which consist of customers inside and outside the company. In the process of creating an open communication environment there are three steps that management will need to implement. First, share power for example expanding decision making (Findarticles.com 2004). Many times in the corporate world the decisions about the inner workings and the outer working of the company are dictated by upper level management and the customers. The employees are often left in the dark. It is important to make the employees feel valued and like it or not they often know more about what's going on with the company than upper level management. Second, communicate expectations to staff (Findarticles.com 2004). It's unfair to believe that all levels of management and staff know exactly what is expected of them because they have read the mission statement. That is the overall principle of the company but don't forget that everyday new situations impact companies and the companies much change accordingly and with those changes the employees must be told what the new expectations are.

Third, maintain visible accessibility (Findarticles.com 2004). The employees need to both see and be able to interact with their managers. They need to know that management practices what they breach to the employees. As a medical professional I invite my patients to opening communicate with me by letting them know that any questions or concerns they have will be addressed first and anything that seems unanswered we will spend quality time on the subject. There will be literature provided if need be and the patient's can always call me if they have any further questions or contact me through my message board.

Will You Be a Hit or a Miss?

The Expectancy for Success ScaleLife is filled with opportunities and obstacles. What happens when you are faced with a difficult challenge? Do you rise to

meet it, or do you back off? Social-cognitive theorists note that our self-efficacy expectancies influence our behavior. When

we believe that we are capable of succeeding through our own efforts, we marshal our resources and apply ourselves.

The following scale, created by Fibel and Hale (1978), can give you insight as to whether you believe that your own

efforts are likely to meet with success. You can compare your own expectancies for success with those of other undergraduates

taking psychology courses by turning to the scoring key at the end of the chapter.

Directions: Indicate the degree to which each item applies to you by circling the appropriate number, according to this key:

1Highly improbable

2Improbable

3Equally improbable and probable, not sure

4Probable

5Highly probable

Good morning Chris,

 

I am just wondering how the assignments are doing today?

I'm still sorting through all the information that you sent me. I should have it done sometime this afternoon.

Ask Your Own Homework Question

Here's assignment 1. I'll have assignment 2 uploaded before midnight.

 

 

There are two groups to consider when looking at this test; employers and co-team members. The opinions of employers carry more weight because these are the individuals that will either extend an offer of employment to you based on this test and some other considerations or they will pass you up for someone more qualified. The opinion of co-team members is less weighty because these individuals are in the same situation as you. They are part of the same team you are no matter what their title may be inside the team structure. It's similar to a peer review, the only thing a co-team member can say is we would like to have you on our team because you will enhance it our we would prefer someone else. Most of the time team members don't say they would prefer someone else they would simply skip you altogether.

Employers want to know if the person they are hiring will be a good fit for the company. Each current employee fits together like matching gears and causes the company to run smoothly. Smoothly can mean, making a profit, decreased product recalls, increased customer satisfaction, etc. Anyone the employer hires must be an additional benefit or wheel that fits into the machine. If a person is hired that is not a team player, has bad customer service and tends to bring down the moral of the other employees then the company will suffer and internal corrections will be required. The same goes for a team. Teams have goals and each member is a piece of the solution, however, if an individual has nothing to contribute then he or she is holding the team back and steps must be taken to correct the problem. In either case a test like this one can give the employer or the co-team member a feel for the person's viewpoint concerning himself/herself and others.

For instance one of the question was asking about a person feeling they would be understood and another was focusing on a person being heard. This can point to the type of person he or she is in terms of introvert and extrovert. Introverts are basically people that are standoffish and tend to be shy. They may have great ideas but often they don't speak up. Extroverts are just the opposite, they are take charge types that will always give you their opinion even when you don't really want it. An employer and co-team member would need to know this type of personality trait in a person to determine the types of projects to place them on. Most of the time introverts would not make good team leaders or supervisors. Extroverts may be overbearing but at least you know they are sharing the material and striving to get the work completed (Buzzle.com 2010). In this sense the test is valid. Now reliable on the other hand lends itself to interpretation.

Reliability can be skewed because the person taking the self-assessment is self reporting. This means the answers are coming directly from the person taking the assessment and not the giver of the assessment. Therefore the person taking the assessment could cause the answer to the questions to shift in a direction he or she believes will land the job or the position on the team (Donaldson&Grant-Vallone 2002). Unless the person is 80 to 90% honest the answers will be in favor of the individual person's desires and goals and not necessarily those of the employer or the team.

Growing up we have all heard phrases such as "you're just like your mother", "that's something your grandfather always says" and "your father makes those faces all the time". These are expressions that usually come from family members or family friends concerning the behavior or personality of children. When they say the children are just like their parents or do things similar to their parents it strikes a question or at least it should. Why would these children do things exactly like their parents or grandparents? Are children suppose to be individuals with their own behaviors and personalities? These are excellent questions and can only be answered when studying the above mentioned areas of behavior and personality. In psychology these concepts are called personality theory and there are many psychologists who have studied it, however, our focus is on three: Maslow, Bandura and Adler.

Abraham Maslow believed that individuals have needs and that these needs can motivate a person to do something he or she would not normally do. It's not simply the concept of having a need but it's the fact of having a primary need that takes over all other needs until it is met. For example: in his early days of research Maslow was working with monkeys and he discovered that hunger and thirst had a set order. The monkeys that were hungry and thirsty chose to satisfy their thirst first and then their hunger. It is common knowledge that humans can live several weeks without food but only 3 to 4 days without water and it seems this standard applies to other animals as well. Whenever there are needs the most dominant will motivate the individual until it is met and there is not time limit for the achievement of the need unless it's thirst or some type of medicine that could save your life (Norwood 2009).

Through Maslow's observations he created what's called the Maslow Hierarchy of Needs which consists of 5 levels: self-actualization needs, esteem needs, love and belonging needs, safety needs and physiological needs. Self-actualization deals with an individual understanding his or her full potential, if you believe you can succeed then the majority of the time you will. Esteem needs involve self respect and how you feel about yourself. The biggest goal here is affirmation, individuals that go to great lengths to be accepted by their peers and others. Love and belonging is always about some form interconnection with the highest being a love relationship and then coming down to associations. Safety needs are self explanatory, individual have a shared need to feel safe in their homes, at work and in their daily lives. Without this need being met people remain in a constant state of alertness for possible dangers instead of assessing dangers in their proper place. Physiological needs are also self explanatory: food, shelter, clothing the basics for human beings (Norwood 2009).

When there is an imbalance in any of these areas then the personality and behavior of the individual changes. The first example would be a drug addict. While high the individual tends to be agreeable, calm and non-threatening. As the high disappears the body is demanding the feeling to return and so the person is driven to lie, steal, assault and threaten others. The second example involves parents who cannot adequately care for their children. They may go to great lengths in order to support their children such as drug pushing, gambling, stealing and even prostitution. Deficits in needs cause the behaviors and personalities of individuals to shift until the needs is met. Maslow had an excellent concept and Bandura seemed to build from that. Bandura believed that people learn from each other through observations, imitation and modeling. This was seen as a connection between the behavior of a person and how a person's mind worked. When you observe a behavior from another person most likely an authority figure or a peer then you will memorize that behavior and in the feature replicate it. The interesting part is that the replication of the behavior is not always planned, since it comes from memory this behavior could manifest in accordance with the situation (Learning Theories 2008) .

For example: if you have observed other people gunning a yellow light before it turns red then most likely the next time you are driving and the same situation happens to you, you'll gun it to avoid the red light as well. Unlike Maslows beliefs, Bandura's beliefs were not fixed upon a primary need to be met but rather on a learned response from one individual to another that could manifest at any time, usually because of a specific reason. The last psychologist of the three was AlXXXXX XXXXX and he believed as Maslow and Bandura did that personalities and behaviors have motivation but unlike the previous two men, his idea was solely based on the desire to be superior. He described a feeling of inadequacies that is present from birth in all human beings and it is the inadequacy that pushes them forward in life. A never ending competition with yourself to be better than you were born. This type of self competition is directed only at how your future will turn out not how your past began (Luttrell 2009). This concept is interesting because it makes you look at those in history who have claimed to be superior to everyone else such as Adolf Hitler and the Klu Klux Klan. Could there have been an underlying feeling of inadequacy making them strive to be better than they were and in the process they began to see themselves better than others?

When trying to determine how personality and behavior works there appear to be many ways to get there. Maslow's way was determining the needs of people and then pointing out that your most dominant need is the one that will drive you until you satisfy it. Bandura was more along the lines of the behaviors that you have experienced will be stored in your memory banks and when a similar situation arises that learned response will manifest itself. Adler was more focused on the flaws in people when they are born and their life long competition with themselves in order to overcome those flaws by always being future minded. Which ever theory you subscribe to it is clear that personality and behavior are complex.

Appendix D

 

Patient Compliance Scenarios

 

Scenario 1-Asthma

 

Dr. Ward is explaining an asthma regimen to Carolyn's mother.

 

"She will have to take this medicine twice a day and carry this other inhaler in case of emergencies."

 

The mother starts to ask questions about the medication, but the doctor's phone rings. He excuses himself and is engrossed in a serious conversation about a medical situation. Carolyn's mother continues to dress the child, as the examination is over. After a few minutes, she tries to get the doctor's attention to complete the conversation.

 

"I am not sure that I understand what you have told us to do." she says quietly.

 

He looks up, hands her the prescriptions, and places his hand over the telephone, saying, "Here are the prescriptions. Call me if you have any further questions."

 

When Carolyn's mother returns home, she throws the prescriptions away and calls to set up an appointment with another doctor, who does not have any openings until the following month.

 

 

Scenario 2-The Dentist

 

Eden is a new college graduate looking for her first corporate job. At the dentist, she talks about having her teeth whitened so she can make a good impression for her interview, which is scheduled a week from today.

 

"Hi, Dr. Element, I was hoping to get my teeth whitened today." Eden says.

 

"Eden," says Dr. Element, "put this request into perspective. You come here every three months because your dental hygiene is not as good as it should be. You always have plaque, and I bet you seldom use the water pick that I gave you."

 

Eden immediately thinks to herself, "You mean the water pick you made me get," but responds to the doctor with, "Well, I am awfully busy, and..."

 

Before Eden can finish, the doctor interrupts, saying, "Always looking for the quick fix, Eden. I am disappointed in you. Use your water pick every day until the next visit, and then we can talk about it."

 

Eden left the dentist disappointed and thought about how she was never going to use that water pick.

 

 

 

 

 

Scenario 3-Physical Therapy

 

Nathan is a healthy man in his early 40s. He works out regularly and does not smoke. Dr. Wechsler is speaking to Nathan in his office regarding the results of his annual physical.

 

"Nathan, your results are generally good except for your triglycerides and cholesterol. They are off the chart. For someone who is so conscious of how to stay healthy, you have ignored everything we know about elevated lipids."

 

"Listen, doc," Nathan says, smiling. "Everything else looks good, right? No one ever died from high cholesterol. I wouldn't worry about it."

 

Dr. Wechsler hands Nathan a brochure that appears to discuss the significance of elevated lipids and says, "Read this, Nathan. Perhaps you will gain an appropriate perspective from it. Triglycerides are a form of fat in the bloodstream. People with high triglycerides often have high cholesterol, which puts you at risk for coronary artery disease and diabetes. You will have to make some major changes in your diet and perhaps take a lipid-lowering agent. You should remove red meat and foods high in sugar from your diet."

 

Nathan looks at the doctor with dismay, thinking about how much he loves Monday's steak night at his favorite restaurant.

 

The doctor provides Nathan with a diet sheet and a prescription for a lipid-lowering agent after discussing the changes that need to be made. Nathan thanks the doctor and leaves the office. When he gets into his car, Nathan throws the diet sheet in the back seat, saying to himself, "I got one life; I'm not giving up steak night."

 

I can help you. Reminder please begin a new posting this one has become too long.
Ask Your Own Homework Question

Here's the assignment for tonight.

 

 

In Scenario 1-Asthma the failure of the client, Carolyn's mother, to comply with the treatment was based on incomplete instructions from the doctor, lack of understanding of the doctor's instructions by Carolyn's mother, perceived unimportance from Carolyn's mother and discarding of the Carolyn's prescriptions by her mother due to frustration with the doctor. Emotional barriers and distractions are the two main communication problems faced by Carolyn's mothers (Garner). First, tensions were already high because Carolyn was ill and needed medication to get better. Second, the doctor become distracted by an important phone call and thus didn't complete his instructions to Carolyn's mother which in turn caused more emotional stress to build up. The doctor should have previously asked his medical staff to hold all important calls and take the messages later. This would allow for more time to clearly give the instructions to Carolyn's mother and then have time to explain anything that was unclear.

 

In Scenario 2-The Dentist the failure of the client, Eden, to comply with the treatment was based on busy schedule, disagreement with the doctor's instructions and disappointment from the doctor's lack of action to whiten her teeth. There are two barriers of communication in this situation perceptual and language (Garner). Dr. Element perceives that Eden always wants to take the easy way out and thus refuses to give her services that she came for. Dr. Element also talks to Eden in ways that imply a child to adult relationship in a scolding manner which in turn disappoints Eden and causes her to resist any suggestions of helping herself. Dr. Element should have explained to Eden that using the water pick reduces the plaque on her teeth and thus keeps them whiter longer. By using a less stressful tone of voice he could have encouraged her to maintain oral health for a better overall personal presentation.

 

In Scenario 3-Physical Therapy the failure of the client, Nathan, to comply with the treatment was based on his nonchalant attitude towards triglycerides, his obsession with Monday steak night and his perception that the doctor doesn't know as much as Nathan does about his own body (self-denial). The communication barrier in this situation is perceptual; Nathan doesn't think that the area of high triglycerides is important enough to change his eating habits and lifestyle (Garner). Dr. Wechsler did not effectively convey to Nathan the importance of an overall health body and not just being healthy in certain areas. Dr. Wechsler should have shown Nathan pictures or possibly a video about the detrimental effects of triglycerides on the body. Then Dr. Wechsler should have sat down with Nathan and discussed the types of foods he can eat and show him how to gradually remove the bad foods from his body and then incorporate good foods into his diet. No one likes "cold turkey" and people tend to be more resistant to it.

Ask Your Own Homework Question

Here's today's assignment.

 

 

According to Scientist Hans Selye continued stress placed on the body will eventually cause an illness. Selye developed three phases of what he called the general adaptation syndrome. The phases are as follows: (1) alarm stage, (2) resistance stage and (3) exhaustion stage. The first stage is very familiar which encompasses the fight or flight responses during situations that are perceived to be dangerous. Dangerous situations can be defined as those situations that cause fear and anxiety, so danger could be giving a speech in public or fleeing an attacker. At this stage several hormones are released such as adrenaline and cortisol. Excess adrenaline and cortisol can cause problems such as: (1) increased blood pressure that might cause a heart attack or stroke, (2) damaged cells, (3) gastric ulcers and (4) increased blood sugar levels (Essenceofstressrelief.com 2011). As the level progress the symptoms worsen.

The resistance stage is the time period that the body takes to repair itself. Even though the initial stressor is gone all the stress hormones may not be. Being in an almost constant state of fight or flee greatly reduces the recovery time. If this repeated process is not stabilized then the body moves into the final and most destructive phase: exhaustion (Essenceofstressrelief.com 2011). At this point it is evident that the stress levels have been prolonged by hours, days and even weeks. This prolonged exposure to stress has caused some serious problems within the body. By this time cells have been damaged, the hippocampus has been negatively affected which means that the memory and reasoning centers of the brain have been compromised. When dealing with multiple projects that have multiple deadlines, the last night you want to encounter is a time frame when you can't remember the project, the deadline or worse yet you can't figure out how to get the project started or how to end it.

That type of memory deficient can lead to a mental and emotional breakdown, a point at which your emotions run high, rationality is greatly diminished and your mental capacity is in a hysteric state. Adding insult to injury the autonomic nervous system will now join in the destruction of the body by contributing to heart disease and rheumatoid arthritis (Essenceofstressrelief.com 2011). The best course of action at this point is organization and delegation of duties. First, a timeline must be established concerning each project's deadline and also the resources needed to complete the projects. Second, projects that had formally been assigned to other associates will now be delegated to them for completion. These associates will receive credit for the work being completed. Third, this delegation and organization strategy will allow you time to think about new ideas and way to promote your campaign.

  • o What steps of the general adaptation syndrome will I experience?
  • o What emotional and cognitive effects might this stressor produce?
  • o If this stress continues, how might it affect my health?
  • o How might I resolve this situation effectively?

Post your response as an attachment.

Everything is fine, thank you for asking - been very busy lately.

 

Here's today's assignment.

 

 

According to Scientist Hans Selye continued stress placed on the body will eventually cause an illness. Selye developed three phases of what he called the general adaptation syndrome. The phases are as follows: (1) alarm stage, (2) resistance stage and (3) exhaustion stage. The first stage is very familiar which encompasses the fight or flight responses during situations that are perceived to be dangerous. Dangerous situations can be defined as those situations that cause fear and anxiety, so danger could be giving a speech in public or fleeing an attacker. At this stage several hormones are released such as adrenaline and cortisol. Excess adrenaline and cortisol can cause problems such as: (1) increased blood pressure that might cause a heart attack or stroke, (2) damaged cells, (3) gastric ulcers and (4) increased blood sugar levels (Essenceofstressrelief.com 2011). As the level progress the symptoms worsen.

The resistance stage is the time period that the body takes to repair itself. Even though the initial stressor is gone all the stress hormones may not be. Being in an almost constant state of fight or flee greatly reduces the recovery time. If this repeated process is not stabilized then the body moves into the final and most destructive phase: exhaustion (Essenceofstressrelief.com 2011). At this point it is evident that the stress levels have been prolonged by hours, days and even weeks. This prolonged exposure to stress has caused some serious problems within the body. By this time cells have been damaged, the hippocampus has been negatively affected which means that the memory and reasoning centers of the brain have been compromised. When dealing with multiple projects that have multiple deadlines, the last night you want to encounter is a time frame when you can't remember the project, the deadline or worse yet you can't figure out how to get the project started or how to end it.

That type of memory deficient can lead to a mental and emotional breakdown, a point at which your emotions run high, rationality is greatly diminished and your mental capacity is in a hysteric state. Adding insult to injury the autonomic nervous system will now join in the destruction of the body by contributing to heart disease and rheumatoid arthritis (Essenceofstressrelief.com 2011). The best course of action at this point is organization and delegation of duties. First, a timeline must be established concerning each project's deadline and also the resources needed to complete the projects. Second, projects that had formally been assigned to other associates will now be delegated to them for completion. These associates will receive credit for the work being completed. Third, this delegation and organization strategy will allow you time to think about new ideas and way to promote your campaign.
