A Research and Appraisal of Existing Evidence Related to Challenges to the Safe and Effective Care of the Aging Population in the Context of Global Health. You will perform a research and appraisal of existing evidence related to challenges to the safe and effective care of the aging population in the context of global health.
You will perform a research and appraisal of existing evidence related to challenges to the safe and effective care of the aging population in the context of global health. Select an aging population from another country, provide life expectancy, new disease patterns, longer lives, disabilities, cost of aging, health care, work, and the changing role of the family.
Examples: China, England, India, Cuba, Russia, Alaska, Germany, Italy, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Pacific Coast Islanders, Japan, France, Haiti, Canada.
The aging population is a global health concern. As life expectancy increases, the number of people over 60 years old will also increase. This raises many questions about how to provide safe and effective care for aging populations in the context of global health. In this research project, you will appraise existing evidence related to challenges to the care of older adults. You will then analyze this evidence and develop recommendations for improving care for this population.
Your research will be conducted in two parts. First, you will review the existing evidence related to challenges to the care of older adults. This will include a review of the literature on aging, global health, and healthcare. You will then identify specific challenges to the care of older adults in the context of global health. Next, you will appraise this evidence and develop recommendations for improving care for this population. This will involve an analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the existing evidence. Finally, you will develop specific recommendations for how to improve care for older adults in the context of global health.
This research project is important because it will provide insights into how to best care for aging populations around the world. By understanding the challenges faced by older adults in the context of global health, we can develop strategies to improve their care. This will ultimately lead to better health outcomes for aging populations around the world.
If you are interested in conducting this research project, please submit a proposal that includes:
-A literature review on aging, global health, and healthcare
-An analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the existing evidence
-Specific recommendations for how to improve care for older adults in the context of global health
Background: The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has caused increasing challenges for healthcare professionals globally. However, there is a dearth of information about these challenges in many developing countries, including Bangladesh. This study aims to explore the challenges faced by healthcare professionals (doctors and nurses) during COVID-19 in Bangladesh.
Methods: We conducted qualitative research among healthcare professionals of different hospitals and clinics in Khulna and Dhaka city of Bangladesh from May 2020 to August 2020. We conducted 15 in-depth telephone interviews using a snowball sampling technique. We used an in-depth interview guide as data were collected, audiotaped, and transcribed. The data were analyzed both manually and using QDA Miner software as we used thematic analysis for this study.
Results: Seven themes emerged from the study. Participants experienced higher workload, psychological distress, shortage of quality personal protective equipment (PPE), social exclusion/stigmatization, lack of incentives, absence of coordination, and proper management during their service. These healthcare professionals faced difficulty coping with these challenges due to situational and organizational factors. They reported of faith in God and mutual support to be the keys to adapt to adversities. Adequate support to address the difficulties faced by healthcare professionals is necessary for an overall improved health outcome during the pandemic.
Conclusion: The findings highlight the common challenges faced by healthcare professionals during the COVID-19 outbreak. This implies the need to support adequate safety kits, protocols, and support for both physical and mental health of the healthcare professionals.
