The issues of under-diagnosis and undertreatment of hypertension and COPD are of utmost importance within primary care, where the focus is on addressing disparities in physical health, including hypertension, depression, and COPD. These health challenges significantly and adversely affect patients’ lives. Fortunately, the issue of anxiety and hypertension can be effectively treated and cured through the implementation of Quality Initiatives (Qi) models, as demonstrated in this scenario. A key solution to this healthcare problem is to provide patients with improved access to mental health facilities. This approach allows for the development and implementation of change management models such as the Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) cycle and strategies like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for patients dealing with mental disorders. Additionally, hospitals should employ educational strategies to train more nurses in conducting remote and collaborative CBT, thereby improving patients’ overall quality of life (Khan, 2019).

Quality Improvement Methods

Utilizing principles of change management, Quality Improvement (QI) methods are applied to achieve desired outcomes within existing systems. The application of Qi necessitates a comprehensive understanding of previous processes and the management of anxiety, hypertension, and depression (Kyrou & Karteris, 2020).

To enhance the treatment and outcomes of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), an action plan has been developed to address not only medications and physical symptoms but also the prevention of underdiagnosed cases of PCOS through Cognitive Behavioral Theory (CBT). This approach has proven effective in improving glucose metabolism and overall patient well-being.

Once the action plan is proposed, a concept map is created to foster inter-professional collaboration between healthcare professionals, patients, and their families, ultimately increasing satisfaction (Khan, 2019).

By implementing judgment-based and non-discriminatory practices to improve quality outcomes, it is possible to positively impact the conditions of hypertension patients. This cycle is repeated until the desired standards of care are achieved, incorporating pharmacological interventions and evidence-based practices (Sookoian & Pirola, 2019).

The Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) method is used to facilitate change among nurses, breaking tasks into manageable steps and guiding the decision-making process (Donnelly, 2021).

Evidence Supporting QI Methods

Many scholars assert that the continuous, collaborative efforts of nurses, clients, and various stakeholders, including research and development professionals and surgeons, are central to the improvement of overall patient care within the context of CBT therapy (Khan, 2019).

The cautious and successful use of Benzodiazepines can reduce headaches and tremors in hypertension patients (Kyrou, 2020).

Patient-focused strategies are more effective in meeting the specific needs of patients.

The success of proposed strategies relies on the collaboration, communication, and sharing capabilities of nurses and stakeholders.

Overall Project Benefits

The change strategy emphasizes the need for nurses to collaborate in order to introduce and integrate both pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions (Borsches, 2019).

Close collaboration among healthcare professionals, leading to the formation of cohesive teams, allows for a unified focus on enhancing patient care quality and safety through consistent communication.

Inter-professional collaboration plays a vital role in identifying gaps in patient safety and quality improvement initiatives.

According to Lim’s study (2014), effective communication can enhance the patient experience, reduce complaints, boost nurses’ confidence and self-knowledge, and elevate their professional standing.

Utilizing communication quality enhancement tools and strategies can lead to improved career prospects and job satisfaction for healthcare professionals through videoconferencing and remote collaboration.

Inter-professional Team Benefits

Research and evidence support the importance of an inter-professional approach to address the needs of patients with PCOS and hypertension, encompassing both psychological and physiological aspects.

Professionals can leverage telehealth, automated tools, and pharmacological methods to benefit both their organizations and clients.

Training related to diabetes type 2 and hypertension is essential for nurses and professionals to assist patients in changing their behaviors and lifestyles.

These strategies facilitate patient improvement in exercise routines and help control PCOS re-admissions while providing systematic visualizations of psychological interventions to strengthen relationships with stakeholders.

The implementation of the overall project and the adoption of technology can reduce knowledge gaps and optimize financial resource utilization.

How Teamwork Will Improve the Efficiency of QI

Teamwork allows team members to contribute their diverse thoughts, ideas, and opinions, facilitating exploration of different opportunities and possibilities.

Effective teamwork among stakeholders such as surgeons, nurses, patients, and pharmacists can enhance their understanding of change management, fostering cohesion within teams to achieve common goals.

Teamwork among stakeholders empowers everyone to take ownership of a portion of the healthcare product or service, contributing to the goals of patient safety and security.
