The clinical significance of the digital patient record. (1/164)

BACKGROUND: Computer technology has revolutionized the way the world does business, allowing us to work faster, smarter and more efficiently than ever before. Computers first made their way into the dental office in the late 1960s as an accounts receivable device. Today, we can digitize anything and recall it in the operatory with the patient. CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS: This article discusses new trends in the digital patient record and the benefits this technology provides to the dental team in terms of improved data collection and recording. It also discusses the benefits a digital patient record provides to patients, as well as how to communicate patients' oral health needs using these electronic tools.  (+info)

Consent: the patients' view--a summary of findings from a study of patients' perceptions of their consent to dental care. (2/164)

AIM: A study was carried out which aimed to investigate peoples' perceptions of how their consent was given for dental treatment. METHOD: A structured questionnaire was completed by 50 patients receiving treatment in the British NHS and 12 of them completed an in-depth recorded interview. The data was analysed using a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods. RESULTS: The findings showed that 80% of patients had not been given any written treatment plan (FP17DC). 79% of patients mistakenly thought that the form signed requesting NHS treatment (FP17) was a consent form. When options were offered patients were more likely to consider that they were involved in the consenting process. However consent is still often implied rather than explicit. There was a range of experience reported by patients from those who felt that the dentist made the treatment decisions to those who felt that decisions had been made collaboratively. Although some patients were happy with the way their consent was obtained examples were also given of lack of information, confusion and even of deceit. CONCLUSIONS: There is an urgent need to clarify the status of NHS documentation regarding consent and a general need for awareness to be raised in the dental profession about the importance of obtaining consent which is freely given based on appropriate information which has been adequately understood.  (+info)

Bringing the mountain to Mohammed: a mobile dental team serves a community-based program for people with HIV/AIDS. (3/164)

In spite of the direct referral system and family-centered model of primary oral health care linking medical and dental care providers, most HIV-positive patients at the Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center received only emergency and episodic dental care between 1993 and 1998. To improve access to dental care for HIV/AIDS patients, a mobile program, called WE CARE, was developed and colocated in community-based organizations serving HIV-infected people. WE CARE provided preventive, early intervention, and comprehensive oral health services to minorities, low-income women and children, homeless youths, gays and lesbians, transgender individuals, and victims of past abuse. More efforts to colocate dental services with HIV/AIDS care at community-based organizations are urgently needed.  (+info)

Small business needs assessment: a comparison of dental educators' responses with SBDC survey results. (4/164)

A primary focus of dental education is to teach students the knowledge, skills, and values essential for practicing dentistry. However, the preparation of dentists to manage a business is frequently cited as inadequate. A survey was prepared to assess teachers' opinions of business instructional topics: challenges; desired training; employee benefits; learning resources; importance of business topics; and appropriateness of time allocations. The purpose of this project is to compare opinions of teachers of dental practice management with key management aspects reported for service businesses by the Small Business Development Center (SBDC). Practice management teachers from forty-eight (89 percent) schools responded to the survey. They indicated that several challenges confronting dentists are similar to other service businesses. Dentists, however, rank customer relations appreciably higher. In order of importance of teaching topics, the practice management teachers rank ethics and personnel management as a high priority and planning as a low priority. Awareness of the similarities and differences in the perceptions of practice management teachers and businesspeople may result in instructional improvements.  (+info)

Expectations and perceptions of Greek patients regarding the quality of dental health care. (5/164)

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate the perceptions and expectations of patients regarding the quality of dental health care they received and the criteria they used to select a dentist. DESIGN: Descriptive study. METHODS: Two questionnaires referring to the expectations and the perceptions of dental health care were handed to patients. Likert-type scales were used to evaluate the characteristics examined. These characteristics have been classified in four quality dimensions: 'assurance', 'empathy', 'reliability' and 'responsiveness'. STUDY PARTICIPANTS AND SETTING: Two hundred consecutive patients who visited the Dental Clinic of the School of Dentistry, University of Athens, Greece, in 1998-1999. RESULTS: The patients' top priority was adherence to the rules of antisepsis and sterilization. Women of the middle and lower socio-economic groups were more demanding than men of the same groups, while men of the upper socio-economic group appeared to be more demanding than women (P = 0.02). Their perceptions of the dental service provided reflected their satisfaction regarding the adherence to the rules of antisepsis and sterilization, but also showed their moderate satisfaction regarding most of the other characteristics and their dissatisfaction regarding information on oral health and hygiene. CONCLUSION: Expectations and demands regarding empathy (approach to the patient) and assurance were placed at the top of the patients' priorities. A highly significant quality gap was observed between the desires of the patients and their perceptions (P< 0.01) and the largest gap was noted concerning information they received about oral health diseases. The largest quality gap was also observed in characteristics regarding responsiveness.  (+info)

Problems with access to dental care for Medicaid-insured children: what caregivers think. (6/164)

OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to gain insight into the experiences, attitudes, and perceptions of a racially and ethnically diverse group of caregivers regarding barriers to dental care for their Medicaid-insured children. METHODS: Criterion-purposive sampling was used to select participants for 11 focus groups, which were conducted in North Carolina. Seventy-seven caregivers of diverse ethnic and racial backgrounds participated. Full recordings of sessions were obtained and transcribed. A comprehensive content review of all data, including line-by-line analysis, was conducted. RESULTS: Negative experiences with the dental care system discouraged many caregivers in the focus groups from obtaining dental services for their Medicaid-insured children. Searching for providers, arranging an appointment where choices were severely limited, and finding transportation left caregivers describing themselves as discouraged and exhausted. Caregivers who successfully negotiated these barriers felt that they encountered additional barriers in the dental care setting, including long waiting times and judgmental, disrespectful, and discriminatory behavior from staff and providers because of their race and public assistance status. CONCLUSIONS: Current proposals to solve the dental access problem probably will be insufficient until barriers identified by caregivers are addressed.  (+info)

Making patients safe and comfortable for a lifetime of dentistry: frontiers in office-based sedation. (7/164)

Conscious sedation administered in the office setting is one important method for helping people obtain necessary dental care. Patients who may benefit from sedation include the dentally fearful, young children, the behaviorally or medically challenged, and individuals who are undergoing invasive procedures or have problems with gagging or local anesthesia. In-office sedation is effective in reducing apprehension and can improve patient behavior without adversely affecting the patient's physiological status. Mortality and serious morbidity are exceedingly rare in modern practice. Although behavioral strategies are clearly more cost-effective for the patient receiving routine dental care, in-office sedation is usually the least expensive alternative for patients requiring pharmacologic management. Future advances in conscious sedation may include agents and techniques currently thought to be dangerous for nongeneral anesthesia-trained dentists because of their ability to produce rapid changes in anesthetic depth. However, delivery devices such as infusion pumps for drugs like propofol, when coupled with computers to help regulate the infusion rate and monitor the sedative effect, may provide the necessary control for safe administration of propofol and similar drugs by these individuals. A final approach to drug delivery may involve patient-controlled sedation in which the patient self-infuses small boluses incrementally until the desired effect is achieved.  (+info)

Long-term management of the fearful adult patient using behavior modification and other modalities. (8/164)

This paper reviews reports on the treatment of fearful adult dental patients with special emphasis on behavioral and cognitive methods and long-term followup. A number of such treatment methods are available that can be used by dentists for the alleviation of fear and anxiety in their patients. At an "intuitive" level, many dentists probably use these methods frequently as a comprehensive part of everyday praxis. Considering the high number of fearful individuals visiting dentists regularly, a better knowledge of such methods would improve dental care for the majority of these patients. It would also help prevent aggravation of fears among individuals at risk. However, despite the success of treatment methods performed by specially trained dentists, it seems reasonable that there should be limits to what can be expected of a dentist in terms of psychological, diagnostic, and therapeutic competence. Dental phobia may constitute a complex psychological and odontological problem with far-reaching consequences for a relatively large proportion of fearful individuals. It therefore seems likely that optimal care of such patients can best be achieved by cross-disciplinary efforts involving both dentists and psychologists.  (+info)

When it comes to any pain, the solution is not to suck it up. Instead, seek professional help and consider one of these unique pain management techniques.
One of the utmost important activities to manage stress and anxiety is exercise. Actually, exercise has many benefits for a healthy and happy lifestyle.. A regular exercise routine reduces your chances of obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Eliminating the risk of major health issues is reason enough to exercise, however, exercise also makes you feel terrific.. Exercising creates a chemical change in your body by releasing endorphins which magically reduces your stress levels. These chemical changes can help fight off depression, fatigue, stress and anxiety, and even addictions.. A long run can create the same stress reducing effect as having a drink after a long day. However, the health benefits of running far outweigh the effects of drinking.. Any amount of exercise you can work into your daily routine is of benefit. Gradually increasing your fitness should be a lifetime goal.. Exercise can also have a visual consequence resulting in a positive self-image. The better you feel about ...

Modern medical science has identified a nasty bacterium, Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori), as a key causal factor in the development of most human ulcers. However, there remain important psychological and environmental factors at work in your office and in your mind that may contribute to your getting an ulcer-a medical condition that the whimsical title of Stanford University professor Robert Sapolskys book Why Zebras Dont Get Ulcers suggests is a very and mostly human problem.. Whether your job stress is chronic or acute, mild or severe, there is something you can learn from zebras about how to cope with it. In his scientifically well-researched and insightful 1994 book, Dr. Sapolsky, Stanford University Professor of Biological Sciences, Neurology and Neurological Sciences, explains why humans get ulcers when animals in the wild, including zebras, rarely, if ever, do.. The Way of the Zebra. The main reason is that, even though animals in general are not as ingenious or able to control their ...
b) To have stop losses that complement your method and are far enough away to not get hit by random moves, yet are not too far away that they dilute profit potential.. Let us run through an example. If you have 15 trades per week, and on average you win 60% of them and get stopped out on the remaining 40%, considering a very conservative Risk:Reward ratio of 1:1 (where entry-exit = entry-stop distance), you end out with nine winners (+9R) and six losers (-6R). Your expected profit per week is 3R (which is handsome, by all means). We are keeping the numbers realistic, in this example, because it is not realistic to expect an 80-90% win rate.. Now, we have already said that having a lot of trades does stress our risk limits. Remaining realistic, on any given week you shouldnt expose your account to more than a 1.5% drawdown, because active trading always tends to stress these risk limits from the start, and drawdown figures are often exceeded. By aiming for a 1.5% MaxDD per week, you are setting ...
My project is to investigate the ways in which the characters in Kazuo Ishiguros novels An Artist of the Floating World , The Remains of the Day , and Never Let Me Go are affected by their over-identification with their professions. The theme of using a professional identity in order to defer responsibility and avoid having to face unpleasant truths about their lives is strongly evidenced in the characters of each of the novels that I will discuss. Through the discussion of scientific management techniques formulated in the last century I plan to show the way in which the professionalism that Ishiguro portrays is marked by a sacrifice of the personal and the individual, leading to his subjects constantly have to revise their life stories in order to contextualize them according to current circumstances. By the use of feedback loops in the thought processes of individuals that cleave too strongly to professionalism, Ishiguros characters reconfigure personal and public events into a ...

As part of multidisciplinary management of paediatric chronic pain, interventional pain management techniques can play an important role when pain is unrelieved by conventional treatment modalities. Many procedures and indications are extrapolated from adult studies, and evidence for long-term efficacy in paediatric populations is limited. Interventions range from injection techniques with local anaesthetic and/or corticosteroids to neuraxial blockade with implanted catheters. Paediatric case series have reported benefit in selected patients with complex regional pain syndrome and cancer-related pain.

Description: Much has been done to promote the use of management techniques designed to develop human resources within the business enterprise. Unfortunately, most of these procedures are applied after the individual has become an employee of the firm. Similar management techniques are needed for the proper recruitment and placement of each new employee. A major source of employee dissatisfaction and turnover lies in the incapacity of some jobs to satisfy the aspirations and job values of certain types of employees. Therefore, one key to employment stability for the college graduate is the relative compatibility between his job values and the capacity of the job to provide fulfillment for those aspirations. Much needs to be done in the areas of predicting the job values of a college senior and matching the individual graduate with that job which is most apt to provide a productive and meaningful career. The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationships between grade point averages, ...
The trends above make IT failure a greater threat to the business. At the same time, some traditional risk management tools have become less applicable.. IT operations staff traditionally managed risks to the production infrastructure by relying solely on restrictive change practices. Changes to the infrastructure were either denied or they were managed with a strict process and a long timeline. This ensured stability by default, but reduced organizational flexibility. Today, business management is more likely to tell IT what to implement, rather than ask, so IT cannot adopt a strategy of managing risk by denying change requests.. In addition to business-driven changes, organizations must be able to quickly respond to security threats such as virus or denial of service attacks. In such cases, managing risk through timely action is of paramount importance. An IT group that used to reduce risk through six-week change cycles might now find itself forced to make changes in six days, six hours, or ...

Lastly, empower your team. The concept of empowerment may be an old-school management technique since it has been introduced decades ago but the reason management experts still recommend this is it works. Unfortunately, many companies are not putting this concept into practice leaving many employees and teams of workers underutilized. Utilizing employees does not mean overloading them with work, which to be certain will not help team motivation. Empowerment means allowing the team to make certain decisions regarding the project, which enables them to make use of their experience, skills and knowledge. Empowerment increases team motivation because they can initiate changes and are, therefore, more engaged with the project ...
In this work, the coexistence of femtocells and D2D communication with macrocells is analyzed. Heterogeneous networks (HetNets) are promising in the aspect of covering the demand of high data rates in cellular networks. Interference management issues in HetNets is an important issue which should be solved. One of the efficient interference management techniques is fractional frequency reuse (FFR). The key idea of this scheme is partitioning the whole frequency band into several non-overlapping parts and allocating them to the macrocell, femtocells and D2D communications in each region. We propose effective FFR schemes and resource allocation methods for macrocell, femtocells and D2D communications. Simulation results show that, the proposed structures can successfully mitigate the cross-tier interferences between macrocell, femtocell and D2D communication which results in significant increase in the system when compared to the random resource allocation.
Unleashing the energy and talent of people in the workplace and engaging employees more fully in their work is a critical challenge facing organizations. Engagement is particularly important today due to morale problems, lack of harmonious relations between employees and managers, lack of career development opportunities, and organizational reputation.. If a business is to succeed and remain competitive in todays corporate landscape, it is essential to keep their employees engaged.. But some contend if it is even possible to achieve employee engagement in a hierarchical organization where leadership dominates. Still, others believe that engagement is a manipulative management technique to squeeze more out of an overworked and understaffed workforce. Clearly, engagement is not a simple matter.. According to recent research conducted by Towers Watson, a leading global professional services company that helps organizations improve performance through effective people, risk and financial ...
Recent advances in the characterization of fundamental limits on interference management in wireless networks and the discovery of new communication schemes on how to handle interference led to a better understanding towards the capacity of such networks. The benefits in terms of achievable rates of powerful schemes handling interference, such as interference alignment, are substantial. However, the main issue behind most of these results is the assumption of perfect channel state information at the transmitters (CSIT). In the absence of channel knowledge the performance of various interference networks collapses to what is achievable by time division multiple access (TDMA). Robustinterference management techniques are promising solutions to maintain high achievable rates at various levels of CSIT, ranging from delayed to imperfect CSIT. In this survey, we outline and study two main research perspectives of how to robustly handle interference for cases where CSIT is imprecise on examples for non

The selection of any lake management technique should be based on clearly stated goals that all stakeholders understand. A comprehensive lake management plan should detail specific goals for the vegetation balance in the lake. The selection of the most appropriate techniques or combination of techniques should include discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of each. A trusted lake manager could be invaluable in helping select in-lake techniques that offer the least risk, based upon specific conditions (such as chemical, physical and biological characteristics) of the lake and the desired results.. Here is a list of common in-lake techniques that have been used (with varying degrees of success) for plant and algae removal:. Herbicides that kill targeted species of nuisance aquatic plant growths have been successfully applied in lakes, particularly those with exotic plant infestations. Due to societal concerns regarding the use of chemical agents in the environment, all cost-effective and ...
I think we need much more expert information on what has happened and is happening. And, the only way to judge the response of government, and the private sector for that matter, is to become knowledgeable on how other related disasters have been handled. It does seem that the response all the way around has been and continues to be slow…waiting for oil to wash up on shores, rather than working through strategies for preventing it. There are no doubt innovative technologies that we should be testing. This spill should be a breakthrough moment when we identify and develop better ways to stop a leak, not to mention prevent it. We need also to focus on the safety provisions BP failed to employ having been given a pass by a cozy federal agency. This is no time for empty rhetoric, or waiting for the worst. We should be calling for strict adherence to safety provisions before any leases are granted. We should be researching best practice environmental crises management techniques. We need to put the ...
Let's face it, summertime brings a smile to everyone's faces. Since the kids are out of school, parents can play with them outside; and adults and kids both can enjoy gardening, hiking, and getting some much needed sunshine on our pale skin. But, just because this is a relaxing time of year for humans, doesn't mean it is for deer. In fact, summer is a deer's most active month for causing mischief; and deer will enjoy munching on organic gardens and flowerbeds if given the opportunity. Here are some things to keep in-mind as we approach summer:1. Deer remain in one spot unless...They are forced out. For homeowners that leave their properties unprotected without bushes, shrubs or fencing, they will soon find that deer will keep coming back....and back....and back again. Deer rarely travel alone; and they will call on members of their herd to enjoy your tasty crops, if you don't act on deer management techniques. 2. Deer carry diseases that affect humans and pets.Deer are the main

Written By Dr. Kris Hiney. Now that we are aware of the potential problems of the skeletal system of the foal, we will address some management techniques that may aid in preventing their occurrence. These include dietary management of the mare and foal, exercise needs, controlling growth rate and even selection of appropriate breeding stock.. Size and growth rate. One of the commonalties amongst all developmental orthopedic diseases (DOD) includes the size and growth rate of the foal. Obviously the larger the foal, the more stress which will be placed on the limbs simply due to weight. Bigger and more rapidly growing foals have been repeatedly shown to be at more risk for DODs. Body size is inherently a genetic issue, while growth rate can be modulated by the owner. If you are breeding for larger foals, more caution should be taken with their diet to ensure a more moderate rate of growth. This includes avoiding sudden changes in rate of growth. One way to limit changes in growth rate is to avoid ...
