Throughout this course, you have viewed the Diary of Medical Mission videos dealing with the catastrophic earthquake in Haiti in 2010. Reflect on this natural disaster by answering the following questions:
Propose one example of a nursing intervention related to the disaster from each of the following levels: primary prevention, secondary prevention, and tertiary prevention. Provide innovative examples that have not been discussed by a previous student.
Under which phase of the disaster do the three proposed interventions fall? Explain why you chose that phase.
With what people or agencies would you work in facilitating the proposed interventions and why?

Quality Improvement Project
September 22, 2017
The topic on continuous quality improvement for my final project that I selected is Patient Administration. There are many health care sectors that are involved with patient administration.
Some of those heath care sectors consist of:
1. Hospital Management Firms
2. Health Maintenance Organizations
3. Health Information Technology
4. Long Term Care Facilities
5. Public Health
6. Healthcare Network
While CQI implementation is slowing down in some health care sectors after the impact of early adopters may have worn off, other sectors of health care, such as public health (see Chapter 16) and nursing (see Chapter 17), are embracing and expanding CQI concepts and methods. (Sollecito 70)
There are many disciplines involved with patient administration.
1. Public Health
2. Physical Therapy
This process is real. Patient Administration is an area that Continuous Quality Improvement can make a difference in how patient’s view the healthcare they receive. Healthcare will always be needed, because not many are willing to try the alternative of not getting healthcare.
