M.A. / This study explores the narratives of two South African women, who have previously been admitted as patients, to various psychiatric institutions in Gauteng. In particular, this study focuses on the women’s perceptions of the ward round process, within the context of hospitalisation. An attempt has been made to explore the wider context of the ward round and hospitalisation, by examining the medical model, its philosophy and the various problems associated with the medical model. The concepts of power, respect and pathologising discourse in particular, are focussed on. The study suggests that an ecosystemic model might serve as a useful alternative to the medical model in addressing the above-mentioned problems. This research was conducted in the form of an inquiry, within the context of a social constructionist perspective. As such, the research methodology employed is also based within the social constructionist paradigm. The themes raised in the conversations with the participants, are seen to be a social co-construction, which has evolved between the researcher and the participants. The social constructionist approach also means that the researcher has applied a reflexive stance, whereby narratives of the participants and the researcher, are linked to a reflection of the content and the various processes that took place within the context of the research. The narratives of the participants suggest that ward rounds are seen to be useful and necessary, but that within the context of the ward round, issues such as respect and transparency are important and should be taken into account. It is stressed within the context of this research, that these findings are localised and specific. As such they can not necessarily be seen to reflect the ‘truths’ of all people, who have experienced the process of ward rounds within the context of hospitalisation.

Exploratory Study of Psychiatric Hospital Effectiveness and Factors Related to Client Aftercare Compliance and Rehospitalization in the Commonwealth of Puerto RicoHavlena, Robert A. January 1987 (has links)
Two related program evaluations of the mental health system in Puerto Rico are conducted. Initially, research is carried out in two state psychiatric hospitals involving an organizational analysis of relevant systems variables as they impinge upon effective institutional functioning. In this scheme hospital effectiveness is predicted by success in achieving formally prescribed goals and in the adequacy of resource utilization. The basic assumption is that the psychiatric hospital reflects the patterning of reciprocal and interdependent behaviors of individuals which form a larger all-important pattern. The hospitals are studied by means of a questionnaire administered to staff to ascertain perceptions of the work environment, communication and coordination processes, overall hospital organization, and the treatment environment. The results of organizational functioning are presented in a profile analysis plotting institutional means over ten functional dimensions. Individual component variables are converted into standard scores and broken down by staff sub-groups. Each institution and staff sub-group differs uniquely across the dimensions. Overall the results point to excessive staff frustration and disillusionment with the organization's functions, and a treatment environment limited in patient autonomy, socio-emotional interaction, and therapeutic content. The complementary study of first releases from these hospitals examines background and performance characteristics of a sample of patients in an effort to distinguish those who complied with aftercare referrals from those who did not, and those who were readmitted from those still in the community one year after release. Bivariate analysis of the relationship between each of the two dependent variables and the several demographic and treatment variables at each hospital reveals that the strongest differentiation of compliers from non-compliers is having been active in pre-hospital outpatient care, while the extent of use of aftercare was the strongest predictor of remaining in the community. Implications for policy and for further research in mental health service delivery are discussed.
Prediction of posttreatment level of functioning from performance in a leveled token economy for emotionally disturbed adolescentsGrover, Peter Arden Scott 01 January 1990 (has links)
This study examined the relationship between performance in a leveled token economy for emotionally disturbed adolescents and posttreatment level of functioning six months after discharge from the target program. The target program for the study is an acute care psychiatric hospital which specialized in the treatment of adolescents with both emotional and substance abuse problems. Previous literature on the outcome of token economy treatment programs however for they adolescents have generally been favorable have typically not examined level of functioning as an outcome criteria.
