Goal is to FILL BEDS Goal is to PROVIDE CARE AT MOST APPROPRIATE LEVEL. Hospitals, physicians and Integrated Health System health plans are separate. II. OVERVIEW OF HEALTH CARE PATIENT - Any recipient of medical attention care or treatment. - Originally meant one who suffers. - health consumer, health care consumer or client. OUTPATIENT - An outpatient is a patient WHO IS NOT HOSPITALIZED FOR 24 HOURS OR MORE but who VISITS A HOSPITAL OR CLINIC OR ASSOCIATED FACILITY FOR DIAGNOSIS OR TREATMENT. INPATIENTS (Ampulatory Patients) - An inpatient is ADMITTED TO THE HOSPITAL AND STAYS OVERNIGHT OR FOR AN INTERMIDIATE TIME, usually several days or weeks or even years. * We MUST understand the patients as someone who possessed certain: Strengths Vulnerabilities Preferences Worries and Fears Hopes and Joys THE PATIENT IS THE CENTRAL REASON FOR YOUR WORKS AND THE ONLY REASON FOR A HEALTH PROFESSION.

* Our VALUES, BELIEFS, ATTITUDES, and CONCEPTS DEFINE US AS A PERSON. * The CRITICAL FRAME determines the patients beliefs about their health and health-related needs. THE PATIENTSS CONCEPT OF HEALTH - Begin by UNDERSTANDING THE WAYS THAT HEALTH PROFESSIONALS AND PATIENTS CONCEPTUALIZE HEALTH. - Health thinking, from the health professions perspective, has historically been based on a disease concept founded in the traditional biomedical model. DISEASE - Disease is any abnormal condition, affecting either the whole body or any of its parts, which impairs normal functioning. - Disease is described in terms of negative symptoms combined with the directly related physical pathology that causes those symptoms. - In this model, the concept of health is represented by THE ABSENCE OF DISEASE. CONCEPTUAL FACTORS How do you know what concept the patient has of health? Each of us has our own concept, but it is formed by many factors like, CULTURAL INFLUENCES, VALUES and BELIEFS. CULTURAL INFLUENCES - CULTURE is described as a property of society. - No such thing as a pure culture, because there is diversity, often recognizable as SUBCULTURES. - VARIATION may exist in education, socioeconomic status, and practiced religions. Access to care will continue to be segregated into 3 identifiable groups of patient: 1. EMPOWERED CONSUMERS who have resources, use technology, and WANT TO SHARE IN HEALTH DECISION MAKING. 2. WORRIED CONSUMERS who have health insurance but NO CHOICE IN PLAN. 3. PEOPLE WHO ARE EXCLUDED because they have no form of health insurance or method of payment other than OUT OF POCKET. * Pharmacists should view health and illness from the patients perspective

III. CONCEPTS OF HEALTH * How can we understand a persons culture in a way that helps to meet his or her health care goals and needs? Learn the values and attitudes considered important enough to pass down from one generation to the next. Understanding a patients cultural view of illness. CAMPINHA-BACOTE - Described this model of CULTURAL COMPETENCE IN HC DELIVERY as a framework for developing and implementing culturally responsive care. -The model assumes that culture competence is a process, not an event. - It recognizes that there is more variation within ethnic groups than across groups. - It assumes that the provision of culturally responsive care is directly related to the health professionals level of competence in the context of each patient. THE MODEL DEFINES THE CONCEPTS AS FOLLOWS: 1. CULTURAL AWARENESS is the SELFUNDERSTANDING of ones own cultural and professional background. 2. CULTURAL KNOWLEDGE is the PROCESS OF SEEKING AND OBTAINING AN EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION about different cultural and ethnic groups. 3. CULTURAL SKILL is described as the ABILITY TO COLLECT RELEVANT CULTURAL DATA ABOUT THE PATIENTS PROBLEM as well as performing a culturally based physical assessment. 4. CULTURAL ENCOUNTER involves the HEALTH PROFESSIONAL ENGAGING IN CROSS-CULTURAL INTERACTIONS with individuals from diverse backgrounds. 5. CULTURAL DESIRE is the MOTIVATION OF THE HEALTH CARE PROVIDER TO ENGAGE IN THE PROCESS OF CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE CARE. HOW DOES ONE BECOME CULTURALLY COMPETENT? 1. Live with the group 2. Learning can be accomplished through reading convening focus groups Participating in community activities. CONCEPTS OF HEALTH HEALTH - Old English word for heal (hael) - WHOLE - Whole person and his or her integrity, soundness, or well-being. - Is the state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity (WHO) - Is the quality of life involving social, emotional, mental, and biological fitness on the part of the individual, which results in adaptations from the environment. 2 COMMON MEANINGS OF HEALTH FOR EVERYDAY USE: NEGATIVE DEFINITION POSITIVE DEFINITION Absence of Disease A state of well-being and Illness A state of complete physical, mental, and social well being not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.(WHO) 6 DIMENSIONS OF HEALTH PHYSICAL Health MENTAL Health EMOTIONAL Health ENVIRONMENTAL Health SOCIAL Health SPIRITUAL Health HOLISTIC HEALTH - is an approach that IDENTIFIES COMPONENTS OF HEALTH that function interdependently to influence an individuals health.

It involves engaging in attitude and behavior that enhance quality of life and maximize personal potential. - Well being is a subjective perceptive of BALANCE, HARMONY and VITALITY - Wellness is a choice
