Factors In Seeking Health Care
Factors In Seeking Health Care
Discuss any problems you have encountered in receiving medical care. Mention some of the six factors in seeking health care. Discuss any hesitations you have had in seeking treatment and why you were hesitant. If you have not encountered any problems, discuss those of a family member or friend. If you do not know anyone who has encountered problems, discuss why you feel the process has been so easy for you.
Abraham Maslow suggested that our behaviors and motivations can be explained by our status of needs – if we are lacking in certain areas, we will consciously and unconsciously focus our energies into satisfying those needs. Every now and then, it is good practice to take an inventory of your own “hierarchy” and ensure that you are engaging in activities that meet your needs and encourage overall health and well-being.
For this assignment, you will be completing a self-assessment of your current needs – are things that you are neglecting? Are there aspects of your life that are being fulfilled? This will only be reviewed by you and your professor so feel free to be honest and open about where you are at right now. This could be an opportunity to make some positive changes if you find that you need a little assistance or boost in any area.
To successfully complete the assessment, address the following:
You will use the Hierarchy of Needs Self-Assessment Log.
Simply open the file, evaluate each of the hierarchy categories and document the needs being or not being met.Really try and take a moment to consider all the needs within the category; for example, you may be in a small argument with your friend, but not realizing how much it is impacting you until you stop and think about it.
Then consider the different action steps you can take to remedy and meet your needs and document the steps you can take within your control. Include how these steps may meet your needs in a separate page with your log. Include references to back up how the Hierarchy of Needs is useful today – or maybe you don’t find it useful…Can a person be in more than one step at a time?
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
