Historically, if you were not ill- feeling well- you did not need a physician and you therefore, only saw your PMD for a specific illness. Those beliefs are seen daily from our older population of patients. Those beliefs are ingrained in them if they were born prior to 1960. Since they survived all the diseases (prior to 1940) that we now vaccinate our children from and they did not die from any environmental causes (1940-1950’s) from their work environment, they see no reason to a physician.



It was also noted at this time that the environment that one worked in may be contributing to their state of illness, and it was noticed that you could ‘recover’ from your disease/illness but may not be able to be productive within society. It was during this time that the government started to get involved by funding hospital expansions and the development of the Department of Health Education and Welfare which is currently named Department of Health and Human Services. From the 1960s to the present, there have been incredible changes in the health care delivery system as federal and state governments have attempted to control spending and health care costs have escalated (Barr et al., 2003).



Our current views of healthcare promotion are just that- views to PROMOTE health. Over the past 30 years, health promotion has been placed front and center in the health care arena. As evidence based research continues, we as healthcare providers have a better understanding of disease and illness within our society and gives us the basis for promoting health. Prevention of illness and disease is the foundation to…...

...Team A Brian Luci, Catherine Stevens, Elizabeth Garcia, Allen Nunley HRM 531 February 25, 2013 Gabriel Lewall Determine Selection Criteria Determining selection criteria is a crucial part in the selection process. Relevant factors must be decided upon and weighed to determine what will be used to select the most qualified candidate to fill a position. Experience in a specific industry or education level can be key areas in determining the most qualified candidate. For this process to be helpful, the selection criteria must relate to the position advertised. I personally have been selected for employment based on industry experience and education only to have these factors completely ignored. Unfortunately, this situation led to my voluntarily leaving the company. Sometimes people accept a position with a company because the job description sounds like a great fit for their knowledge, skills and abilities. They later discover otherwise after a short stay with the company. This situation can sometimes work out to their advantage, as in my case with the Employment Development Department. I was hired (reinstated) by the state after a 20-year absence. I had the knowledge, skills, and abilities the position required; but the work I was doing did not pertain to my skill set. I later was told by the hiring manager I was chosen over the other candidates for the position because my positive attitude...

What Is the Difference Between a Nation and a State and Why Are They Often Confused?

...What is the difference between a nation and a state and why are they often confused? The term nation tends to be employed with little precision, often being used interchangeably with terms such as state, country, ethnic group or race. Nations have many features. First and most basically, nations are cultural entities. A nation is a group of people who share a common language, religion, history and traditions. Second, nations are political entities. A nation is a group of people who regard themselves as a natural political community. This is expressed most clearly in the desire to establish or maintain statehood. Nations are often based on rights, democracy, common laws and common territory. E.g. USA, South Africa. Lastly, they are psychological entities. A nation is a group of people bound together by shared loyalties or allegiances, often expressed in the form of patriotism. Nations can be viewed as either primary cultural communities or cultural political communities. A state is a formal political entity which has clearly defined territorial boundaries within which some form of government exercises the powers of the state. The state normally is seen to have certain duties e.g. ensure peace and stability, provide social welfare, protect property etc. The state is seen to be sovereign and has sovereign power over a certain jurisdiction. It is therefore superior to all other institutions including government. The government is a short term institution and just the...

How and Why Did the Nazi Treatment of Jews Change Between the Years 1933 and 1945?

...| How and why did the Nazi treatment of Jews change between the years 1933 and 1945? | Curran De Braganca | How and why did the Nazi treatment of Jews change between the years 1933 and 1945? Most of us have heard of the Nazi party’s horrific, genocidal regime on destroying the Jewish race, but what events led up to their dire judgement? In this study I aim to uncover the events, reasons and changes which led to the Holocaust and the further changes in the treatment of the Jewish race by Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party. In the aftermath of the First World War, Germany is under the Judgment of the Allies as a result of Allied victory Germany is being blamed for most of the war, The Treaty of Versailles stated that they: * Are to pay compensation to the Allies: £6.6 Million, which was well over Germany’s financial capacity at the time. * Portions of Germany’s land has been claimed and will distributed under Allied power to form new nations and also will be given to allied nations who lost land during the war. * Germany’s army will be reduced to only 100,000 men plus their naval vessels have been limited to 6 capital ships. The west of Rhineland had been Demilitarised and occupied by Allied forces. * Germany was not allowed to join with Austria to boost its economy. These were only just a few of the terms of the treaty. In Germany, many people were ‘pointing fingers’ and putting the blame on others, one group of people however, is...

What Is a World View ?

...What is a worldview? A world view is one’s own philosophy upon how they view life and how their views will affect the outcome of their lives as well as other’s. Whether it be from a choice we make on a daily basis, IE: Speaking to people how we would want to be spoken to, Treating others as we would like to be treated, Or even giving your own personal insight on a certain subject. Without our individual worldviews as a mass we would all live a very dull life without knowing which way is the correct way. 1. The Question of Origin – Why are we here? And where do we come from? These are the deepest forms of construction on our own worldviews. Our Christian worldviews are described as God’s acts and the Bible portrays his real acts which require a good measure of faith and belief each is what is a critical part of our associated belief system, Our Worldview. 2. The Question of Identity – The Bible answers the question by stating “what does it mean to be human” and how man was created in God’s image, likeness and to replenish the earth to have power over every living thing on this earth. There are many forms of life on Earth but, such as animals we do not lack that intrinsic value that comes from being created “In the image of God”. 3. The Question of Meaning/Purpose – In evolutionary theory, life is purely organic and there is no higher purpose other to live life to it’s fullest and make the best out of each and every day as it could possibly be our last.

What Are the Distinguishing Factors Between the Contemporary Views of Health Promotion Versus the Historical View? How and Why Did These Differences Develop?

...What are the distinguishing factors between the contemporary views of health promotion versus the historical view? How and why did these differences develop?  The World Health Organization describes health promotion a “the process of enabling people to increase control over, and to improve, their health. It moves beyond a focus on individual behaviour towards a wide range of social and environmental interventions” (retrieved from http://www.who.int/topics/health_promotion/en/, 2014). Historically, people believed that health was free from disease due to people dying from infectious diseases. It was geared more to the control of transmissible diseases, concentrating on safe drinking water, and an environment free from hazards. As times have changed so did the views of health. We started to expand our views and focus our attention to unhealthy behaviors and educated people on living a healthier lifestyle to prevent diseases. With the advancement of technology, we have vaccinations available for kids at a young age and the government are getting more involved for healthy living. Every day we have a better understanding of the diseases and we can educate the community in striving for optimal health by changing their attitude and behaviors in their lifestyle. People are more willing to live a healthier life. Novick, L.F., Morrow, C.B. (n.d.) Defining Public Health: Historical and Contemporary Developments. Jones and Bartlett Publishers.

Historical View of Satan's Fall

... the gap theory is Clarence Larkin. In his book “Dispositional Truth”, he states that believers are promised a new heaven and a new earth. He talks about how the old earth was submerged in water and all on it perished. While this seems to describe the flood of Noah, he states that it actually points to a flood that preceded Noah. This flood destroyed the primeval world that was made formless and vast. The main problem with the gap theory is the statement of days in Genesis 1. Moses writes in Genesis that creation took six days. Opponents to the gap theory claim that this leaves no room for a million or billion year gap between 1:1 and 1:2. Thus the argument of how long did each day last. Some scholars argue for literal days, while others argue that a day consisted of a vast amount of time. Different explanations have been given throughout the years. Among these theories are the flood theory, the ideal-time theory, the age-day theory, the pictorial-day theory, and the revelatory-day theory. An explanation of each of these theories is not appropriate for this paper. A second problem with the gap theory is that 1 Corinthians describes Adam as being the first man. If Adam is the first man, then no prehistoric human race could have existed. While Adam is mentioned throughout the scriptures as being the first man, there is no mention of a prehistoric human race. One of the main foundations of the Gap theory is the existence of the pre-historic human race. Without......

What Are the Distinguishing Factors Between the Contemporary Views of Health Promotion Versus the Historical View? How and Why Did These Differences Develop?

...“People involved in health promotion must consider the meaning of health for themselves and for others. Recognizing differences in the meaning of health can clarify outcomes and expectations in health promotion and enhance the quality of health care” (Edelman & Mandle, 2010, p. 3). This statement is so powerful when we are investigating health promotion in general. When discussing the differences between the contemporary and historical views of health promotion, it is important to think about how nursing and medicine has evolved to its current state. The historical view of health promotion has to do with where we started. This view includes the view that some of our elders still may believe in. These people often believe that if you weren’t feeling well, then you didn’t need to see a doctor. These people mainly saw their doctors for a specific reason, they didn’t think ahead. This lead too many people’s “miss fortune” which our, now, contemporary view focuses on preventing these illnesses. Currently in the contemporary view of health promotion, in the medical field we are constantly stressing screening and prevention of illness. For example, we all know that we can screen for cancer in the colon by doing colonoscopies routinely after the age of 50 years old, have a pap smear done routinely to prevent cervical cancer, and do mammograms routinely to screen for breast cancer. Also, an example of preventing illness we stress the importance of vaccines. All of these health......

Political View Between Two Candidates

...Political Issues between Richard Burr and Elaine Marshall With the race for Senator of North Carolina coming to a close and with Richard Burr in the lead over Elaine Marshall, this is a very crucial time for Marshall to use some political issues in her advantage as well as it is for Burr to maintain his lead. There were a lot of differences on topics between both of these candidates. The resource that I used in finding topics that both of these candidates disagreed on was Project Vote Smart. Project Vote Smart is an historic undertaking. It’s where citizens come together, not in a selfish way of interest or to support one candidate over another, but to defend democracy. It gives you access to information on certain topics surrounding our world. Even if one candidate suffers grave attacks from opposing candidates and political parties, many are not willing to manipulate information and deceive voters. Here are the results from both parties using the Project Vote Smart. Keep in mind that while Burr filled one out and Marshall did not. Marshall’s results are based on a infer answer meaning based on public statements, voting record, and evaluations based on special interest groups. On abortion issues of whether you were pro-choice or pro-life, Marshall’s inferred answer was pro-choice while Burr’s answer was pro-life. Burr then states, “I oppose abortion except in cases of rape, incest, or when the life of the mother is threatened. Taxpayer dollars should not be...

How Europeans View Americans

...How Europeans View Americans: Whether or not I agree with the author is based on my beliefs and experience with different economic factors. Although this article is opinionated of how the author shares different experiences from different Europeans frames (points of view) of the American society, we should all note that this is not the consensus for all Europeans. In reference to the matters that persuaded the United States to utilized their military might (September 11 2001), are only the actions of the current administered, which resulted in a ripple effect that cast judgment on all the American population. Although determined, the Bush administration left their allies on the sideline; where they felt obligated to respond and defend the homeland, which clearly displayed one difference in the U.S. and European view of security. In the summer of 2002 in an article Policy Review by Robert Kagan, he stated, “ It is time to stop pretending that Europeans and Americans share a common view of the world, or even that they occupy the same world” (Gordon, P. H, 2003). Cultures and generations have enforced and reinforced the values and belief systems that either population (American and European) have passed down from generation to generation to their children. Although Robert Kagan shared his views in the article, it is safe to say his perceived structure is not destiny, but should not be ignored. (Gordon, P.H. 2003). Apart from many other differences, which differentiate...

‘the Novel’s Contrasting Settings Portray a Gulf Between Social Classes in Victorian Society.’ How Far and in What Ways Do You Agree with This View of the Picture of Dorian Gray?

...‘The novel’s contrasting settings portray a gulf between social classes in Victorian society.’ How far and in what ways do you agree with this view of The Picture of Dorian Gray? The novel’s contrasting settings do portray a gulf between social classes in Victorian society but also represents the dualism in The Picture Of Dorian Gray. Wilde specifically chooses to pick two opposite settings, the East End and the West End, and ignores the middle class areas of London. This is due to the suggestion that Wilde wanted to convey class indifference explicitly and clearly in the novel, but also the double aspects of Dorian and his life. Dorian comes from the West End of London, living in a very wealthy and prestigious “Grosvenor Square”, the wealth in the glamorous side of London is explicitly different to the “foul” East End, with its “grisly prostitutes, drunken brawls, and opium dens”. These two contrasting settings are very interesting as Dorian, a wealthy man likes to spend his time in the “darkest” London. Not only is Wilde portraying the gulf between these two social classes, he is representing Dorian; the glamorous West End acts as a mask for Dorian, whereas the “evil” East End is a true representation of the real Dorian Gray and his true nature. However the rest of high Victorian society would not tolerate such visits Dorian went on and Dorian would fact social ostrication, however as long as immorality was hidden it was fine. Rita Felski suggests that this portrays...

Health Promotion of the Family: the Holistic View

...Health Promotion of the Family: The Holistic View Gordon developed the 11 functional health patterns to assist in holistic assessment of the family. (Edeleman, Kudzma, & Mandle, 2014)The functional health pattern format assists nurses in assessment of the family, which lends to development of wellness and family nursing diagnoses. An analysis of the family health assessment made through the use of the functional health pattern framework provided the writer with a holistic overview on the health status of this one particular family. The patterns assessed were: values, health perception, nutrition, sleep/rest, elimination, activity/exercise, cognitive, sensory-perception, self-perception, role relationship, sexuality and coping. Overall the assessed family strives to maintain optimal health by many proactive activities yet there are a few dysfunctional patterns that have the potential to minimize their ultimate health status. The assessed family was queried about their overall health using the aforementioned patterns. The writer deemed it important to assess their cognitive and sensory-perception patterns foremost in the assessment. The writer first assessed each family member’s level of education. The male family member reported to have a “bachelors degree” and the female family member reported to have a “masters degree.” The family was assessed as to how they preferred to gain information about health as to which they reported use of the Internet and research...

...Running head: Define Marketing Define Marketing Latarsha Mack MKT/421 University of Phoenix Abstract I will give two definitions of marketing from two different sources. I will also describe the importance of marketing in organizational success. I will give examples of marketing from the business world. Define Marketing Marketing can be defined in many ways. Marketing is the process of creating and distributing of a visual product that attracts customers to purchase the product for personal or business use. Marketing is the way in which organizations reach customers and interact with them, and the way they develop strategies to sell products and grow their business. Marketing brings on a variety of changes, goods, and services. When a company gives the customer new and improved products and services, the profits go up allowing them to higher more. “Marketing is the activity, set of institutions, and processes for creating, communicating, delivering, and exchanging offerings that have value for customers, clients, partners, and society at large” (William, 2009). Companies value marketing because it allows customers to see the products and services available. It leads to good and fair competition between companies that have rational name brand products and gives the customers a sense of trust. Good marketing generates revenue for most companies and increase earnings. Using advertising a level of marketing persuades television, newspaper, and on-line...
