Nursing Faculty Publications

To identify an effective medium for communicating with adolescents in a large-scale, cost-effective violence prevention program.

A set of youth violence prevention programs was established at The Stamford Hospital, a level II trauma center. The traveling version of the program was presented to middle school students in four parts: 1) a rap music video created by our violence prevention staff, 2) a facilitated discussion about dealing with anger, 3) a video of a trauma resuscitation in our emergency department, and 4) a commercial video of a teenage boy paralyzed after a gunshot wound. A written questionnaire with a five-point rating ...


Enhancing Patient/Surgeon Relations: Examining The Delivery And Reception Of Diagnosis, Christy Kahler Apr 1999

Enhancing Patient/Surgeon Relations: Examining The Delivery And Reception Of Diagnosis, Christy Kahler

Communication Studies Undergraduate Theses

Health communication is a fairly recent and currently growing area of the medical field. The diagnostic phase of many medical encounters can be the making, or breaking point of future relationships for the physician and patient (Blum, 1972). Many studies have examined how the physician's communication affects the relationship. However, few studies have investigated diagnosis in clinical setting with the exceptions of Heath (1987), Maynard (1991), and Nikolaisen (1998). Moreover, none have been found on the delivery and reception of diagnosis in the surgical setting. Research reveals that the diagnostic phase in physician/patient relationships is a crucial one ...


Elements Of An Effective Physical Therapist-Patient Relationship, Kevin Helvik Apr 1999

Elements Of An Effective Physical Therapist-Patient Relationship, Kevin Helvik

Sociology and Anthropology Undergraduate Theses

In the field of physical therapy, many aspects are important in developing and executing a successful plan for improving the health of a patient. The relationship between the physical therapist and patient is among the most important of these aspects. This paper offers a deeper sociological look at the relationship between a physical therapist and patient based on four areas, which seem pertinent to this relationship: (1) understanding the roles of the individuals involved; (2) compliance of the patient to prescribed regimens; (3) motivating the patients; and (4) effective communication. This study offers an analysis of the contribution of these ...


Mental Health Parity: National And State Perspectives 1999, Bruce Lubotsky Levin, Ardis Hanson, Richard Coe Jan 1999

Mental Health Parity: National And State Perspectives 1999, Bruce Lubotsky Levin, Ardis Hanson, Richard Coe

Ardis Hanson

Mental health parity legislation could substantially reduce the degree to which financial responsibility for the treatment of mental illness is shifted to government, especially state and local government. There is substantial evidence that both mental health and addictions treatment is effective in reducing the utilization and costs of medical services. There appears to be a lack of substantial evidence to discourage Florida from pursuing mental health and substance abuse parity legislation.

Patient Compliance-Gaining: A Look At Care Facility Vs. Home Health, Merideth Mayberry Jan 1999

Patient Compliance-Gaining: A Look At Care Facility Vs. Home Health, Merideth Mayberry

Masters Theses

The patient compliance-gaining strategies employed by health care providers in the care facility and home health environments were investigated. Each participant completed a two-page, open-ended survey. A content analysis, and more specifically a thematic analysis of the research, allowed for similarities and differences between the two settings to be compared to current literature. Results indicated that participants used similar strategies to those suggested by researchers in the field. The results showed that strategies applied by health care providers in this particular study are effective for gaining patient compliance.

He(Art)Ful Autoethnography, Carolyn Ellis Dec 1998

He(Art)Ful Autoethnography, Carolyn Ellis

Carolyn Ellis

The author seeks to develop an ethnography that includes researchers’ vulnerable selves, emotions, bodies, and spirits; produces evocative stories that create the effect of reality; celebrates concrete experience and intimate detail; examines how human experience is endowed with meaning; is concerned with moral, ethical, and political consequences; encourages compassion and empathy; helps us know how to live and cope; features multiple voices and repositions readers and “subjects” as coparticipants in dialogue; seeks a fusion between social science and literature in which, as Gregory Bateson says, “you are partly blown by the winds of reality and partly an artist creating a ...
