📒By The Bedside Of The Patient ✍ Nortin M. Hadler, M.D.
✏By the Bedside of the Patient Book Summary : In By the Bedside of the Patient, Nortin Hadler places current efforts to reform medical education--from the undergraduate level through residency programs and on to continuing medical education--in historical context. In doing so, he traces the evolution of medical school curricula, residency and fellowship programs, and the clinical practices they promoted. Hadler examines crucial junctures in history to locate the seeds for reform. Some believe that medical education and training should highlight literature, ethics, and culture, while others emphasize science and efficiency to abbreviate the time from entry to licensure. Neither of these approaches, Hadler argues, maintains or improves patient care, which should be at the core of medical education and practice. Hadler contends that most reform attempted thus far constitutes, at best, little more than a reshuffling of the basic curriculum and, at worst, an augmenting of medicine's predilection to measure, grade, and record. Examining generational changes in medical education, Hadler mines sixty years of training and practice to identify mistaken approaches and best practices. Ultimately, in the contemporary era of managed care, Hadler argues for a clinical practice that draws on the best available scientific knowledge, transmits the wisdom of experienced clinicians, reforges an empathetic relationship between physician and patient, and treats each patient as an individual--all centered on restoring the mandate to care.

Beyond Bedside Manner guides the practice to redefine the doctor-patient relationship in ways that create much more value for the doctor, the patient, and the practice.

📒Fair Resource Allocation And Rationing At The Bedside ✍ Marion Danis
✏Fair Resource Allocation and Rationing at the Bedside Book Summary : Health systems need to set priorities fairly. In one way or another, part of this important task will fall to physicians. How do they make judgments about resource stewardship, and how should they do so? How can they make such decisions in a manner that is compatible with their clinical duties to patients? In this book, philosophers, bioethicists, physicians, lawyers and health policy experts make the case that priority setting and rationing contribute significantly to the possibility of affordable and fair healthcare and that clinicians play an indispensable role in that process. The book depicts the results of a survey of European physicians about their experiences with rationing and other cost containment strategies, and their perception of scarcity and fairness in their health care systems. Responding to and complementing these findings, commentators discuss why resource allocation and bedside rationing is necessary and justifiable. The book explores how bedside rationing relates to clinical judgments about medical necessity and medical indications, marginal benefits, weak evidence based medicine, off-label use. The book highlights how comparative studies of health care systems can advance more effective and fair bedside rationing through learning from one another. From a practical standpoint, the book offers a number of strategies for health care systems and clinicians to work in tandem to allocate and ration resources as fairly as possible: how to foster more attention to fairness when rationing at the bedside, how to avoid exacerbating health disparities when allocating resources, how to teach about bedside rationing to students, how to discuss rationing more explicitly in the public arena and in the doctor's office.

📒Capstone Project ✍ Jamie Calderwood
✏Capstone Project Book Summary : Patients and families in acute hospital settings want to bridge communication gaps between them and the nurses that care for them. Standardized shift report common practice is nurse to nurse communication involvement. The patient is not any part of that report. With the start of every shift, including the patient and/or their families will improve communication, thus improving patient satisfaction (Baker, 2010). The importance of handoff is written in the literature, and it includes patient satisfaction and even accountability of nurses where communication is done at the bedside with the patient doing safety checks. By using a bedside communication tool called SBARQ (situation, background, assessment, recommendations and questions), critical patient information is transferred from one nurse to another while including the patient in their own plan of care (Effken and others, 2011). Surveys on patient satisfaction that focuses on bedside report will be analyzed and will show improvements of patient satisfaction.
