Mental Health Outcomes Of Various Types Of Fear Among University Students Who Have An Undocumented Legal Status During The Donald Trump Presidency, Liliana Campos 2021 The University of San Francisco

Mental Health Outcomes Of Various Types Of Fear Among University Students Who Have An Undocumented Legal Status During The Donald Trump Presidency, Liliana Campos

Doctoral Dissertations

81818app手机版下载Having an undocumented legal status is a risk factor for mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety among university students. Much of the literature on the experiences of university students who hold an undocumented legal status has primarily focused on better understanding the educational, social, financial, and legal challenges among undergraduate students. The literature has addressed how some of these difficulties impact components of their social and mental health wellness. Yet, there is still a dearth of research focused on further understanding the experiences of students who hold an undocumented legal status from a psychological perspective, and specifically, with ...

Telehealth is a rapidly expanding mode of health care delivery, improving the efficiency of health care and related support services across the United States. Through telehealth, services are made more accessible, resulting in improved care for those in rural and under severed communities. Improving mental health care in the United States is not a simple fix, and it will require the continued normalization of behavioral health, so that our society will be able to move past the stigma, allowing people to feel comfortable seeking care. The goal of this paper is to address the importance of having access to behavioral ...


Oral Chemotherapy: Safe Handling In The Home, Cynthia Huff 2020 The University of San Francisco

Oral Chemotherapy: Safe Handling In The Home, Cynthia Huff

DNP Qualifying Manuscripts

Background81818app手机版下载: According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (2016), oral anticancer agents (OAC) are hazardous drugs (HD) and require the same safe handling interventions in the home setting as in controlled health care environments. The use of a safe handling checklist for OAC administration is a way nurses can provide safe handling education to patients and caregivers and assess for understanding and competency for critical tasks. Effective home management strategies outlining caregiver protections, proper storage, administration of OACs, spill clean-up, and waste disposal could reduce exposure risks to toxic agents.

Objective: To present a safe-handling checklist and ...


Usp Compliance: A Hazardous Drug Safe Handling Ppe Toolkit For Infusion Nurses, Cynthia Huff 2020 The University of San Francisco

Usp Compliance: A Hazardous Drug Safe Handling Ppe Toolkit For Infusion Nurses, Cynthia Huff

Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Projects

Problem: Safety concerns have existed for more than 40 years about how hazardous drug (HD) exposure contributes to long- and short-term adverse health outcomes for healthcare workers (HCWs). Careless handling may cause toxic residues to infiltrate hospital environments and patient care areas, and can even be traced to patients’ homes. New government regulations will require healthcare organizations to minimize exposure risks to HCWs by fully implementing the U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP) Convention Chapter 800: Hazardous Drugs: Handling in Healthcare Settings (USP, 2016) on December 1, 2019. According to Polovich and Olsen (2017), “The implementation of the USP <800> Standards will represent ...

Master's Projects and Capstones

The following discusses adolescent depression and anxiety and the utilization of physical activity as an intervention or coping mechanism. Adolescents have been experiencing increased rates of anxiety or depression diagnoses over the past roughly two decades. Adolescence is, physiologically, a formative period in the developmental stage from childhood to adulthood. Current barriers to achieving optimal mental health among the adolescent population include the stigmatization of mental health issues, lack of education, socioeconomic status and healthcare access. Further, physical activity has been studied and identified to be an effective treatment for individuals experiencing depression and anxiety. In an effort to treat ...

Communication Faculty Publications

Introduction

81818app手机版下载Communities throughout the United States have implemented medicine disposal programs to prevent diversion of unused opioid analgesics from homes but a general lack of awareness may contribute to low rates of utilization. The objective of this study was to develop and test community-based campaign messages promoting appropriate disposal of unused opioids at disposal programs.

Understanding The Significance Of Virtual Support During Global Pandemic In Young Adults Diagnosed With Hepatitis C, Veronika Arkhipova

Master's Projects and Capstones

81818app手机版下载Hepatitis C is a viral infection that attacks the liver and leads to inflammation. In recent years, the prevalence of hepatitis C infections among 20 and 30 years of age has increased by 300 percent, and between 30 and 39 years by 400 percent. Due to the global coronavirus pandemic, people diagnosed with Hepatitis C have lost access to mental health services and resources, including in-person meetings with support groups. Since most states enforced stay-at-home order, many community centers, non-profit organizations that work with Hepatitis C patients and the affected population provide limited to no access to support group meetings ...

The Impact Of The Deficit Reduction Act Of 2005 On The Length Of Hospital Stay, Honamattie Dabydeen

Dissertations and Theses

ABSTRACT

Introduction

Hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) are the most common complications of hospital care in the United States, and at least 1 in 10 patients admitted to the hospital will develop one. These unnecessary complications lead to about 99,000 premature deaths per year and add approximately $35–$45 billion of direct costs. Most of the cost increase is due to increases in hospital length of stay (LOS). This study examines the effect of a federal policy change on LOS among people with an HAI using the Donabedian quality of health care model as a framework. Specifically, this study examines the ...

A Century Later: Rural Public Health's Enduring Challenges And Opportunities., Erika C. Ziller Phd, Carly Milkowski Mph

Population Health

The US public health community has demonstrated increasing awareness of rural health disparities in the past several years. Although current interest is high, the topic is not new, and some of the earliest public health literature includes reports on infectious disease and sanitation in rural places. Continuing through the first third of the 20th century, dozens of articles documented rural disparities in infant and maternal mortality, sanitation and water safety, health care access, and among Black, Indigenous, and People of Color communities. Current rural research reveals similar challenges, and strategies suggested for addressing rural-urban health disparities 100 years ago resonate ...


Paving A Path To Privatization: The History Of Health Care In Detroit, Yasmeen Berry 2020 Henry Ford College 81818app手机版下载

Paving A Path To Privatization: The History Of Health Care In Detroit, Yasmeen Berry

The Macksey Journal

The aim of this study is to provide insight into the privatization of the public Detroit General Hospital. The reasoning and objections behind giving the only public hospital at the time to a private company are examined. The benefits of privatization were more efficient care, less costs for the city government, more up-to-date equipment, and more competition between hospitals (which supposedly would lead to better health care). However, health care has become more expensive; there has been a loss of public jobs, disassembling of unions, and a larger health equity gap. In addition to this assessment, an evaluation of the ...

Nitrous Oxide As Pain Relief For Women In Labor, Mikaela M. Peterson

Senior Honors Theses

81818app手机版下载Labor and childbirth can be a very frightening and anxious time in a woman’s life. Pain is considered a normal, natural and expected part of childbirth and for that reason, it is vitally important to provide women access to different approaches to pain management. Healthcare professionals must be aware of all the options available to women for pain management because it is crucial that women feel they have a choice in what they use for their body. While every woman will experience pain differently, they should be able to have a choice of which measures they use to cope ...


Perceptions Of Women Versus Men In Matter Of Women’S Health, Catherine Parylo 2020 State University of New York College at Brockport

Perceptions Of Women Versus Men In Matter Of Women’S Health, Catherine Parylo

Senior Honors Theses

Inequalities between men and women within political and health spheres have greatly impacted the way voting aged citizens perceive particular political messages. This is quite apparent within the context of controversial reproductive health issues, such as access to abortion or specific birth control methods. By surveying voting aged, male and female college students from both major American political parties on their perceptions of messages spoken by either traditionally feminine or masculine voices, some of these deeply ingrained biases were revealed. Although speaking the same message of either a very liberal-leaning view on abortion and birth control, or a very conservative ...

Menstrual Equity Within The Homeless Community: The Good, The Bad, And The Bloody, Courtney Earle

Senior Honors Theses

Homeless menstruation is a prevalent issue across the United States, however, there is currently a severe lack of academic literature on the topic. This paper is a call to action for feminist and public health scholars to conduct more theory-based research in order to implement effective and inclusive solutions for problems associated with homeless menstruation. I utilized feminist media analysis and discourse analysis to examine articles about homeless menstruation published by popular media sources as well as organizations and businesses that are involved in the fight for menstrual equity. The work that is being done by these organizations and media ...

Reproductive Health

Implementers of sexual and gender-based violence programs in refugee settings are typically eager to learn about the extent to which their programs are making a difference in the lives of those they serve. Basic monitoring information can help address this imperative without unduly burdening program implementers with time-consuming evaluations. The Sauti/VOICE project is guiding adaptation and implementation of evidence-based SGBV interventions in refugee contexts. These interventions are implemented by UNHCR partners in eight countries in the East, Horn, and Great Lakes region of Africa. Although Sauti/VOICE is primarily focused on integrating tested SGBV interventions into refugee contexts, monitoring ...

Reproductive Health

Health care providers collect an array of documentation and specimens to support criminal investigations. Such documentation and specimens are referred to as “medico-legal” or “forensic” evidence, and in the case of rape, include a survivor’s documented injuries and emotional state at the time of examination, as well as samples and specimens from the survivor’s body or clothing. For survivors of rape and defilement who want to obtain legal justice, medico-legal evidence is critical. In African countries, health providers and the police are depended upon to ensure such evidence is collected, but medico-legal evidence collection can present challenges. Evidence-based ...
