Management of a Patient Process

Management of a Patient Process

Practice of medicine – essentially management of a patient, a person with a health problem

o   Surgical patient – person with a surgical disorder

o   Surgical disorder – health problem or condition that is  treated by surgery or an operation

o   Nonsurgical patient – one with a nonsurgical disorder

 

Regardless of type of patient or disorder, whether surgical or nonsurgical,  basic processes in the management are essentially similar.

Only difference lies in the specific treatment modality and procedure employed, whether surgical or nonsurgical means.

In the management of a surgical patient, in the treatment phase, there is the so-called pre-operative, intra-operative, and post-operative sub-phases.

In the management of a non-surgical patient, in the treatment phase, there is the so-called pre-treatment, intra-treatment, and post-treatment sub-phases.

All primary health care physicians are expected at least to know the basic processes in the management of a patient.
