HEALTHCARE

discussion boad due thursday…. make sure you read my case study below this…

case study…….
 In 2013 the woman was diagnosed with endometrial hyperplasia after the tests ordered by Gayed. The disease is an overgrowth of the uterine lining which is a signal of cancer. The doctor then performed endometrial ablation. The operations are reportedly negative since it destroys all the uterus layers. After five years, the woman returned to the hospital and was diagnosed with uterus cancer. According to health reports, it is unprofessional to perform ablation on hyperplasia women. The procedure increases the chances of cancerous cells development which leads to cancer (Davey, 2018). 

discussion board assignment
 
Health care organizations, by their nature, must constantly strive to improve patient care. Many different approaches to improvement have been utilized over the years. In this discussion, you critically evaluate a number of these historical and contemporary approaches and consider what is most effective. You then apply those approaches to your case study, and analyze the effect they might have had on the outcome of that case.
To prepare for this Discussion, complete the readings in your Learning Resources.

Post a description of two historical and/or contemporary approaches to quality improvement you feel would be most effective to improve health care quality and safety. Then, evaluate how these approaches could be applied to the case study you identified in Week 1. Finally, analyze how adapting these approaches might have altered the outcome in that case study.
Support your work with specific citations from this week’s Learning Resources and/or additional sources, as appropriate. Your citations must be in APA format. Refer to the Essential Guide to APA Style for Walden Students to ensure your in-text citations and reference list are correct.
