Health Patterns are very useful because they provide a useful structure for assessing the patterns of factors that can influence the drug response, and that can create an impact on compliance and successful results of the drug therapy that we medicate. There are different discussions that health experts are talking about and they want to incorporate both the subjective and the objective data of every health pattern shown.
There are eleven unique patterns and one can see at how each of the pattern may affect the drug therapy or medication as well as how drug therapy may create an impact on that pattern. There are assessments of this pattern that can provide a rich and reliable database for planning the drug and other therapeutics to use as medication. It provides insights into several beliefs of the client or patient. He wants to be evaluated with his current health practices that may somehow affect the drug therapy, and the resources used to enhance his health needs.
Nature of Health
There are also certain beliefs about the help of the nature of health and the factors affecting it or the reasons that cause a current illness or disease that can provide helpful insights into the beliefs about the disease causation and how this disease should be treated through the drug therapies. The use of some home remedies is a good and important way too to explore and follow since these may also interfere with the drug therapy. However, it can also provide the clues to a client’s or patient’s understanding of his or her health, disease, and its corresponding treatment.
The history of the clients’ current set of medications and their past drug therapies and responses to its drug therapy is extremely essential. It’s because it can also serve to the health to detect any “allergies” or intolerances to the drugs or any familial responses to its drug therapy that may cause more injury or damage to the health of a person.
Getting a good history is very important because these are the basic steps to know if the patients could handle such therapy prescribed or ordered to them by the physicians. Through history taking, the patient will be sure that they are well taken care of especially in their health patterns. In these patterns, patients will be evaluated on how far they can go with the drug therapy needed.
