At this point, the question being pondered upon is why are there more specialty physicians than generalist physicians if “common disorders commonly occur and rare ones rarely happen”? The
This article addresses an important issue on how to develop frailty assessment tools in older adults with musculoskeletal disorders. Why is this topic more essential? Frailty has found in various fields of chronic diseases not only in musculoskeletal disorders. I am interested in frailty; however, it is tricky to determine who present frail in older adults having physical function limitation. Therefore, the different among physical function limitation, immobility, and frailty are still hard to justification. For example, older adults having secondary or third osteoarthritis always presents with severe pain at the knee joint. This pain also interferes his/her physical function. The more joints movement, the greater pain emerge. Reducing severe

Muscles work by the fibres they contain contracting; this makes the muscle shorten. When the muscle shortens it pulls on the tendon and then on the bone to which it is attached. Muscles are connected to bones by tendons. When an individual is moved and positioned it is important this happens smoothly. Sudden movements or pulling in any direction of an individual’s limbs or body can cause pulled muscles or tear tendons which can cause a lot of pain. Bones in limbs are covered with tissue. Putting pressure on an individual’s hand or arm when they are moving from one position to another can cause a bone to fracture. Fractures can also happen if there is an accident with for example equipment like a hoist and this falls onto the individual when moving/positioning them or using the wrong sling size and the individual falls out.

That is where credentials are important to know to what specifically the surgeon is specialized in. For example, the fact that someone is an experience surgeon to deliver pregnant women does not mean he/she has experience and practice to operate on a woman have a breast reduction. In other undeveloped countries, I am aware of one surgeon is able to operate on people with many different issues. I have heard the story of Gynecologist surgeon who also operates on children with other birth defect. But, I like the way it is over here in this country, there is almost surgeons who practice very specific part of the body. This way, it is safer, and without much doubt one knows that he/she is dealing with someone who is trained, educated, and experienced in one particular field. In some particular cases, hospitals have granted privileges to physicians/surgeons to carry out certain procedures, but cannot depend on theoretical knowledge. Medicine is one the fields where theoretical knowledge only will not be considered as proof of experience. Also, no one can claim to be experienced through training and practice without the required years of theoretical knowledge. Both are required here, theory and practice. However, specific practice is required. For the surgeon needs to specialize in a particular area.
Introduction Evidence base practice is essential in nursing practice. It incorporates 3 key components which are clinical expertise, patient values, and best research evidence in order to provide the most effective and safe decision making for patient care. Neglecting a key component can affect the accuracy and efficiency of

“Expertise is the mantra of modern medicine. In the early twentieth century, you needed only a one-year-medical degree to practice medicine. But by the century’s end, all doctors had to have a college degree, a four-year medical degree, and an additional three to seven years of residency

Osteoarthritis is the most common joint disorder, and more than half of all Americans who are older than 65 have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis. However, recent US data has revealed knee osteoarthritis does not discriminate age, and there is growing evidence that osteoarthritis affects individuals at a young age. The annual cost of osteoarthritis due to treatment and loss of productivity in the US is estimated to be more than 65 billion dollars.1 With no cure currently available for osteoarthritis, current treatments focus on management of symptoms. The primary goals of therapy include improved joint function, pain relief, and increased joint stability. Although the exact cause of osteoarthritis is unknown, many risk factors have been identified including increased age, female gender, obesity, and trauma.2 Within these risk factors, the etiology of osteoarthritis has been divided into anatomy, body mass, and gender.
1.DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GENERLISTS AND SPECIALISTS- If we see the difference between generalist and specialist then there is one study of stone et al, according to him when he compared internists and infectious disease specialists with two hypothetical situations then in the first situation he described that survival chance was much more for the patients who had more experienced providers.
In the Public Field, we are constantly applying theories in order to better understand how the public works and to better assist the communities in different aspects of health. According to Glanz, Rimer, and Viswanath (2008), theories in which focus on beliefs and actions of individuals are the first theories of health behavior that are still being practiced around the world today. The individual theories either known as intrapersonal theories that are still being used today are the following: Health Belief Model (HBM), Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB), Transtheoretical Model (TTM), and the Precaution Adoption Process Model (PAPM) (Glanz, Rimer, Viswanath, 2008). Each one of these individual theories can be applied to different scenarios and
In the United States, arthritis has become the second most common disorder, in the past years. Moreover, the condition affects more than 34 million Caucasians, 4.6 million African-Americans and nearly 3.1 million Hispanics with women being the most affected (Helmick, 2008). 28.3% of people suffering from arthritis are women whereas 18.2% are men (Helmick, 2008). By the year 2030, it is predicted that the number of patients with arthritis will double if prevalence rates remain the same. Apart from being cost-intensive, Osteoarthritis (OA) affects nearly twenty seven million Americans, which effectively limits their work (Reid, Shengelia & Parker, 2012). The statistics show that Caucasians are the most affected and the Hispanics to be the less affected from Caucasians, Hispanics, and African Americans. It also shows how women also have greater possibilities of getting arthritis than man ever did.
