Co-op Culminating Report
Transcript of Co-op Culminating Report
Education and Career
Isolation rooms are rooms in which a sick patient has a contagious disease or sickness and should be kept seperate fr4om others, most importantly other patients, as it is contagious. Co-op students are not allowed to enter an isolation room, but whoever is needs to wear a specific uniform.
A co-op student is given a list of all codes that can be called in a hospital and should always have that list with them in the hospital, in the case where that code would be called, it is a safety requirement for a co-op student to recognize the code and know what to do in terms of where they are, so they can help staff with protecting patients.
This safety requirement is self explanitory but very important in regards to a hospital workplace, as a co-op student one is required to always use the sanitizers, before and after walking into the hospital, a floor or a patient room. One can easily transfer germs to others, especially patients and that is why sanitizing is key.
is not required but would be very beneficial if the student has experience at a hospital or clinic, as a coop student or as a volunteer. This would ensure that the student has background knowledge about the profession and workplace.
Connections between Related Subject and Work at Placement
A Co-op student at the hospital
The Professional Life of
The Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital
My first area of learning is Genetic Processes, in which evaluate the importance of some recent contributions to our knowledge of genetic processes, and
analyze social and ethical implications of genetic and genomic research. A task in which occurred that relates to my placement is, my placement contains elderly patients that require me to engage in conversations with the elderly and have knowledge of genetic processes as I sometimes file forms of the genes of the patients’ am always around elders and need to know the correct social skills to use when at my placement.
Higher Level Jobs
A second area would be Scientific Investigation Skills and Career Exploration communicate ideas, plans, procedures, results, and conclusions orally, in writing, and/or
in electronic presentations, using appropriate
language and a variety of formats (e.g., data
tables, laboratory reports, presentations, debates,
simulations, models). A task in which occurred that related to my placement is that at my placement, I require the ability to communicate ideas with my supervisor and everyone else who work in my placement, contributing to plans and creating new ideas for daily plans. I also assist in weekly presentations made for the patients where I need to lead presentations.
If I was to continue at my placement I believe that I would need to learn and ask more questions about key things used in both departments. In physiotherapy I should ask more questions about the machinery or utilities used in treatments so I have more medical knowledge I can contribute. In recreational therapy I could ask more questions about the various medical professions on the floor and learn about them.
What i Learned from each task
Thank you Sir.
What I need to learn or get better at if i was to continue Co-op
What i learned from my first task was that having knowledge about the genetics of the patients engage with on a daily basis helps when communicating with them, as I can always check up on them and properly speak to them and try to brighten their day as I know that they are possibly miserable being an inpatient at the hospital.
What I learned from my second task was that communication is key, not only with patients but mostly with supervisors and other staff members, I was always welcome to contribute ideas and required to lead presentations at time, so confirming that the communication is done well is important.
The Dream Cooperative Education placement
My school subject which relates to my placement is Grade 11 Biology, SBI3U.
I am best at Problem Solving, Interpersonal, and Communication skills. This is because I am a social person who will not stop unless the task is done, and in this case, participation as a task is simple for me.
Many of my chosen skills can be used as a transferable skill, but i feel as the Problem Solving skill is very essential to workplaces, no matter which workplace because problems are bound to occur at all workplaces and one should always be aware of how to deal with problems, and properly solve them.
In a hospital, one should always be aware of their surroundings. I learned that in every part of the hospital, I was to be aware of my surroundings.
I had to learn to use planning skills days where my supervisor was absent, or unable to plan out an activity and left it for me to do, I tghen had to organize and plan activities to do with patients for recreational therapy.
On my first placement, recreational therapy I was accompanied by another co-op student,. In times where a problem would occur we would need to work together and problem solve. One time, a patient went up to us that he felt he could not breath, and in that case we reassured him help, and rush to the nurse's station, where they dealt with him and realized he had left his gas tank in his room.
Good communication Skills with supervisor, staff members, and patients as well is a essential part of being a co-op student, so there is no misunderstandings.
Adaptability skills are key, because it ensures the ability to manage multiple tasks. In physiotherapy, I was in charge of making sure the treatment area was always organized, and that meant making sure the rooms were clean and ready, and also preparing the utilites required for the treatments.
Interpersonal skills are very beneficial in a place like a hospital, espedially in a inpatient department like recreation therapy because as a coop student you always want to get patients to participate in activites and get them out of their room to enjoy the day. You always have to be patient and kind.
I should improve on my Awareness, Adaptability and my Planning skills, because I have never been required to use these skills as much as orther skills so I believe i still need to master them.
For physiotherapy one must take a 4 year undergaduate program, that may be bio medicine, or community health. High school courses required include, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Advances Functions, and English. I found that a possible university choice would be Western University in London. The prerequisites required in university are one full course of physical or life science, one half course in English, one full course in social science or liberal arts, one half course in human, mammalian, or vertebrate physiology, and one half course in statistics. The first term of the first year would focus on the foundations, courses that would be required would be gross anatomy, professional practice issues, foundations of physical therapy practice, integrated assessment skills, and anatomy and cell biology neuroscience for rehabilitation sciences. For the second term that is focused on the regional conditions, courses would include, regional assessment, treatment of regional conditions, applied cardio respiratory physiology, and critical appraisal and evidence based practice, and two following terms to finish off the first year of the program. This program is a two year program, with a total of 60 weeks of classroom work, and 30 weeks of clinical experience. The expense of the program would be around $8,410 per year, where financial support can be provided. Each student who wishes to participate in this program are required to have a passing grade of 60% in all courses, with an overall term average of at least 70%. Deadline for applications take place on January 10, 2015.
