...Specifically, the strength of a linear association between 2 variables is termed correlation. Although there are several measures of correlation, the most commonly reported is the Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient (typically abbreviated with a lowercase “r”).6 The Pearson correlation is an expression of the association between 2 continuous variables; other correlations may be reported according to differing characteristics of the variables (e.g., Spearman’s rho, which is a correlation coefficient for ranked variables). Correlation coefficients measure 2 facets of a relationship: (1) the magnitude (with absolute coefficient values ranging from zero to one) and (2) the direction (either positive Author GRANT H.

In addition, teens who are mothers at an early age often have the fact that he or she is a parent interfere with his or her education, there are also problems involving social opportunities and employment options. Special problems that pregnant teenagers encounter are the financing of the pregnancy, the right to abort the fetus while being a minor, and the option to give the child up for adoption. These problems are unique to this population because many adults do not encounter these issues. Minors usually need the consent of at least one parent or other authorized adult to receive medical treatment but minors in certain situations can consent to some types of reproductive health and pregnancy related treatment on their own behalf. If a minor is getting treatment with the help of insurance, then the parent of the minor is involved and is aware of the services received. If the minor is concerned about involving his or her parents, other resources for payment are sought. Clinics such as Planned Parenthood provide assistance in family planning, abortion, and pregnancy services. The Adolescent Family Life Program is a free program available in California.

Medical Assistant

...Medical Administrative Assistant Medical assistants perform administrative and clinical tasks to keep the offices of physicians, podiatrists, chiropractors, and other health practitioners running smoothly. The duties of medical assistants vary from office to office, depending on the location and size of the practice and the practitioner's specialty. In small practices, medical assistants usually do many different kinds of tasks, handling both administrative and clinical duties and reporting directly to an office manager, physician, or other health practitioner. Those in large practices tend to specialize in a particular area, under the supervision of department administrators. Medical assistants should not be confused with physician assistants, who examine, diagnose, and treat patients under the direct supervision of a physician (www.bls.gov). Some medical assistants may help doctors examine and treat patients. They may check the height, weight, temperature, and blood pressure of each patient. Assistants write down patients' medical histories and run simple laboratory tests. Sometimes they answer patients' questions about medicines and treatment at home. Assistants may also give injections, apply bandages, and take X-rays. Many assistants take electrocardiograms, which measure the electrical impulses of the heart. Medical assistants are sometimes in charge of buying and maintaining medical equipment and furniture for the doctor's office. They may also act as office......

The next were a Social & Human Service Assistants, Pharmacy technicians, registered nurses, secretaries and administrative Assistant. Most of everything that was listed was what I was looking into. I was looking into going to school for Social & Human Services at Penn State but I changed my mind quickly because that wasn’t exactly what I wanted to do with my life. I was looking at a Pharmacy Technician but that wasn’t exactly in my mind field either. I was stuck on Medical Assistant but couldn’t find a school that allowed me to do the classes online while I could work and attend my clinical at a hospital or wherever they are held. I finally stumbled upon Kaplan and so glad I did. That is why I am so surprised from the interest profiler that Medical Assistant was listed first. Since I do want to be a pediatrician later down the road I know I am in the correct career filed to obtain that career. Some skill sets that are listed for a medical assistant is everything I excel in. The basic skills consist of listening to other without interrupting and asking good questions. I also love talking to people which is another basic skill for MA. I am a very social person so I know I will excel in the basic skills of a MA.

...Jocelinn Pineda 06/17/2013 Chapter 6 Exercise 6-1 The EHR in this physicians practice contains many functions. Look at the functions above. What function(s) do you think a medical assistant would use and why? Medical assistants might use the practice view icon to search for their email in case they are unable to contact a patient by phone. Patient view icon may be another function medical assistance may use for the administrative data of a patient. Exercise 6-2 Why is it important to use more than one attribute when searching for a patient, especially in addition to a first and/or last name? It’s important because the search using a first and/or last name can bring up two or more patient’s with the same names and if you use a birth date in the search a more accurate result of the patient that you are looking for can come up. Exercise 6-3 Briefly describe administrative, clinical, and billing data and state whether the screen above contains any such data. Administrative data is the information of the patient such as full name, date of birth, address, social security number, and telephone numbers. Clinical data is the patients health information. And billing data includes financial information about a patient; the screen above does contain administrative data. Exercise 6-4 The EHRS has the ability to capture data using a drop-down menu.

Once the work produced in one phase is approved, the phase ends and the next phase begin. As the project progresses from phase to phase, it moves forward in the same manner as a waterfall and its possible to go back through the phases. Waterfall methodologies have the advantages of identifying requirements long before programming begins limiting changes to the requirements as the project proceeds. (Dennis, Wixom, Roth, 2009, p48) Rapid Application Development (RAD): rapid application development is a collection of methodologies that emerged in response to the weakness of waterfall development and its variations. RAD incorporates special techniques and computer tools to speed up the analysis, design and implementation phases in order to get some portion of the system developed quickly and into the hands of the users for evaluation and feed back. RAD can be conducted in several ways like iterative development, system prototyping and throwaway prototyping. System prototyping performs analysis, design and implementation phases concurrently in order to quickly develop a simplified version of the proposed system and give it to the users for evaluation and feedback.

...Donovan Cann Coach Schmotzer PE 224 12/2/14 Paper 3: Assistant coaches ​Another thing that ties into coaching and is a big part of the program are assistant coaches. I say this because an assistant coach can either be a real help or a big problem. Some assistant coaches embrace the tasks at hand and some run from them. The article “An Assistant’s Focus” talks about how as an assistant you have a tough role. You have to be “on” at all times. This means no slippage weather its handling a task or even at practice. You have to always be motivating and paying attention not just sitting in the background. This brings up the question of a coaches trust in his assistant and the coaches intelligence. ​In my opinion the head coach’s intelligence is based on the quality of people around him. I think so because in any situation you want to surround yourself with the people who have the same knowledge of you or higher. This way you can learn from each other. As a coach you’re not going to be around someone that doesn’t give positive insight on things or makes you feel less smart. Another thing is image if you’re surrounded by people who are not as intelligent as you it makes you seem less intelligent to the other people around you. ​Something that comes to mind also is decision making. There is a vast difference between suggesting and making a decision. As an assistant coach you often give your opinion and how you view things, and as a good head coach you will value your......

Paralegal Assistant

...My Ideal and Most Fitting Job: A Paralegal Assistant Several factors ought to be considered by the general job applicant during his search and application for a specific employment opportunity. The ability to excel in the particular job of interest is incredibly important and despite its simplicity as a fact and a factor, overlooked by many people. Excellence is directly related to personal interest and a high level of motivation and happiness within the work place.
