Title: Drawing Attention to Mental Health in the Hospital Setting
Matthew Thomas Coyne, Christina J. Schroedle
According to a study conducted in 2017, about 792 million people in the world have a diagnosed mental health issue, and specifically approximately 284 million people are diagnosed with anxiety. Anxiety can create barriers in people’s life that can have major effects on someone’s day to day activities. One specific form of anxiety is related to health, and this type of anxiety is seen to increase in the hospital setting. There have been many studies done about how anxiety levels in nurses and physicians impact the care that is given to the patients and the results from these high anxiety levels (Chen et al. 2022). We want to dive into the other end of the issue; how a patient's anxiety level impacts their own care. This study will give us qualitative data and there will be a wide variety of participants. Meaning that we will be speaking to patients on all different floors of the hospital, such as oncology, pulmonary, burn units about different factors within a hospital setting that impact their anxiety levels. The goal of this study is to see how the patient’s mental health is being treated in the hospital.We believe that mental and physical health are extremely connected, and we will be trying to find strong correlation between the two factors throughout the study.
