I have chosen to talk about psychiatrists A psychiatrist is like a doctorbut he/she specializes in The brain and mentality!A psychiatrist is a medical practitioner who specializesin diagnosing and treating mental disorders. Psychiatrists are in the healthcare field, and certainly work with healthcare technology. Many use medical software such as EMR (Electronic Medical Record) , or SoftPsych Psychiatric Diagnosis to improve quality of care.
  • 3. Job description of a psychiatrist Psychiatrists analyze and asses a patients state of mind They use a biopsychosocial way to do this, by taking into account past experiences, family, culture and surroundings. They must diagnose mental illnesses They must treat the problem. This can be done through various ways: - Psychotherapy: Regular discussion of problems with patient, where thepsychiatrist helps them find solutions by changing negative behaviour patterns - Psychoanalysis: Long- term psychotherapy and counselling - Medication: Often to correct chemical imbalances, which cause emotionalproblems - Hospitlization Psychiatrists frequently work in group medical practices, clinics or hospitals, and less frequently solo In Canada, average Psychiatrist work hours were 1750 per year Psychiatrists average salary: more than $174,000 per year

  • 8. Concepts of TechnologySafetyActing in a way that ensures that life, property, systems, processes and services arenot jeopardized or harmed in any way.Psychiatrists deal with very sensitive things- a persons brain and mentality. They must dealwith patients with care, consideration and proper analyzation. It would be highlydangerous, unsafe and irresponsible if the psychiatrist misdiagnosed a patient, or gavethem the wrong medicine. Inadequate psychotherapy can also put a patients mental statein danger. Patient records must also be safely organized, or else confidentiality, andinformation may be jeopardized or mixed up/lost. =
  • 9. SystemInterrelated mechanisms that all function as part of a whole, which may beconnected to other systems.The human mind itself is like a system. Different parts of the brain work together to formone whole- the working human mind. A psychiatrist needs to be able to separate thedifferent components of the brain, search for anything improper and know how to treatthe issue. Systematic thinking , or to understand how things/systems influence and affecteach other, is necessary in a psychiatrist. The psychiatrist must be able to relate real-life,past/present, cultural situations to understand the influence it has had on the patient,and to come to an inference.

As psychiatrists often work ingroups, a psychiatrist must be able to respectfully listen to co-workers, as wellas voice their own opinion within the group.
