An ideal medical practice model is required to improve Efficiency, Quality and the Doctor-Patient Relationships.  An ideal medical practice is, where every aspect of the practice is designed around the patient's requirements and the primary motive is to enhance the doctor-patient relationship. When a practice is designed around these principles, we can focus on an excellent patient care with exceptional quality care. The key principles for ideal medical practices pursue are high-quality, patient-centered, collaborative care; completely unrestricted access and continuity; and extreme efficiency.

Health education is an important aspect of social science that draws from the biological, psychological, physical, medical and environmental sciences. Where, it’s aim is to promote health and prevent the diseases, disability and premature death through education-driven voluntary activities. Health education is the development of an individual, group, community, institutional and systemic strategies to enhance health knowledge, attitudes, skills and behaviour. The purpose of health education is to positively influence the health behaviour of individuals and communities as well as the living and working conditions that influence their health.

A crucial challenge in medical education is preparing the physicians for future learning. While this traditionally has meant challenging scientific advances, trainees also must be well skilled and prepared to engage with the new healthcare delivery models and technologies. Telemedicine is a good example, described as the use of electronic communication by clinicians and patients for the exchange of health information. Within the scope of telemedicine are e-visits, where a patient communicates by telephone; video conferencing; and secure messaging with a clinician who performs a remote evaluation and prescribes medications as required.

Clinical pharmacists should play an important role within medical education to ensure that learning outcomes are achieved. They can also help medical students to understand multidisciplinary working and the breadth of professional skills. A better understanding of pharmacology and therapeutics is certainly a solid foundation, where to develop prescribing skills. It has been suggested that individuals with specialist training in clinical pharmacology and therapeutics (CPT) should, ideally, lead its education within undergraduate medical programs.

Patients have always been very important in medical and nursing education, but their role has mostly been as passive aids to the learning. Patient involvement means participation of the patient in decision making or expressing opinions about different treatment methods, this includes information sharing, their feelings and signs and accepting instructions of health team. Active participation of patients as educators has increased over the past 20 years as a consequence of government and professional policy directives relating to public and patient involvement in healthcare, moral importance related to social liability, and the desire to broaden curricula to include the psychosocial aspects of health, promote patient-centred care and include the voices of those who are experts by experience.

The medical schools critically evaluate their curricula in order to nurture their physicians equipped to meet the needs of an evolving society. Recently, medical educators have been charged to enhance the emphasis on prevention, care of populations, public health, and community medicine.

Joint ventures and collaborations with various organizations and community physicians ensure that medical students learn, how to apply knowledge and skills acquired through the course of their studies to public health research in various settings; the fundamental knowledge of community engagement, collaboration, and service-based practice; and how to address the different needs of patient subgroups and populations. These programs provide opportunities for students to be active participants in community capacity building while reaching the specific competencies in public health sector.

The future of nursing education is in the area known as high-fidelity simulation, the use of computerized mannequins that exhibit a wide range of patient conditions. Simulation typically involves three parts: preparation work, then the simulation, then a debriefing session. The debriefing is usually a kind of reflective learning exercise in which students review their own performance and consider how nursing theory is actually being applied in the nursing practice. A good number of researches has shown that simulation is incredibly effective as one of the teaching methodologies and can certainly contribute both to better patient outcomes and a culture of safety among the nursing staff.
