One of the most effective treatment would be cognitive behavioural therapy which replaces unrealistic thoughts about anorexia and diets with more positive and healthier thinking. Cognitive behavioural therapy will also help Sinead get to the root of her problem of her anorexic problem and unattainable beliefs and this would be able to give her a better understanding of what is going on with her. Next, from reading an article “Is Bowen Theory Still Relevant in the Family Therapy Field?” Brown, Jenny. (Sept 2008) family systems therapy is one of the best ways to help Sinead and her family. Family systems therapy is basically evaluating the family system functioning as a unit and there are a few types of family therapy that uses this approach such as “structural family therapy, intergenerational family therapy and strategic family therapy” (Family Solutions Institute MFT Study Guide).
For example, a conversation between a social care worker and an older person might trigger an unconscious response in the social carer that could lead to discrimination against the service user. Therefore, if the social care worker is not tuned into their own emotional needs, reflecting on a regular basis, being mindful and attending supervision, they could be placing the welfare and safety of their service users at risk of not receiving proper care and attention. The social care worker should be someone who genuinely wants to work with vulnerable older people. Be consistent and congruent in their careing roles. Good communication skills are essential and following guidelines and HIQA standard to ensure best practice at all time.
In large part, it looks at how environmentally vulnerable an area is, and compares that with the vulnerability of the people. Using a social vulnerability index would be more beneficial to understanding the population because it allows for more variance within any given status group. Our current mode of thinking is based on heuristics, and a way to define, differentiate and categorize; thus our categories, e.g., lower-class, middle-class, and high-class, are limited. If we were to use an SVI to assess the population, we would likely see differences depending on the communities demographics, geographical location, and social support. Under this theory, we would see dissimilarities between two people with an identical SES title (Lin and Hung 2016).
Outcome 7 – Illustrates how the Nurse Incorporates Professional Values into Ethical Nursing Practice and Personal Accountability. Brenen Dapkiewicz NU 311 Fundamentals of Nursing Practicum Washburn University School of Nursing Knowledge Q1: Define patient centered care and discuss several ways you noticed the facility provided patient centered care. To me, patient centered care is the process of actively listening to, informing, and involving patients in their care. Patients who are involved in their care plan are more likely to stick with their care plan. Moreover, the patient knows him/herself best, if you create a plan that the patient knows they won’t be able to perform, then the plan would be useless.
I struggled to understand opposing perspectives, particularly since even within the context of an ethical decision-making framework, they did not always appear logical. This experience has allowed me to recognize within myself that consideration and imagination of other people’s perspectives is a weakness for me, and I will need to incorporate strategies into my nursing practice to accommodate this. Specifically, incorporation of lines of questioning that will enlighten me as to other perspectives to consider will help me to develop comfort with this area. Ethical decision-making is an integral part of nursing practice, and the ability to do so is a vitally important to effective nursing practice. Examining Helen’s situation within the context of McDonald’s Framework for Ethical Decision-Making (2001) allowed me further insight into the values and biases that influence my decision-making.

The guidelines set by the NP’s Core competencies involves educational programs for nurse practitioner and are referred to as essentials behaviors for all NPs (The National Organization of Nurse Practitioner, ([NONPF],2017). As a future NP, this course has echoed the importance to critically examine information given by finding evidence to support and manage care for the individual or the population, which I will apply to my practice. This, in turn, will offer better treatment plan and optimize better patient outcome. Using the differential diagnosis to pinpoint the best possible diagnosis for individuals has helped me to use critical thinking about my patient and to find the appropriate plan of care. Integrating humanities and sciences in nursing is important and allow individuals to enhance their knowledge and critical thinking skills in their nursing practice.

The Bowenian family therapy helps me understand my family and myself better. Two of the main terms in Bowenian family therapy are differentiation and fusion. Understanding these to terms is important to know how an individual relates with his or her family. Based on an individual’s differentiation or fusion they will interact in the family differently and can become entangled in triangular relationships that can lead to anxiety. In reading this week’s chapter on Bowenian Family Therapy, I started to consider how I interacted with my family and where I might fall on the self-differentiation scale.

They also discuss the challenges of creating a welcoming environment which instils a sense of trust within the client (Nadeau & Measham 2006). Often migrants from different cultural backgrounds fear that bringing their child in for treatment may trigger social discrimination or hold the belief that some mental health services are linked to immigration services, and thus refuse to cooperate (Nadeau & Measham 2006).

However, in order for children to reach a state of wellbeing, it is imperative that health professionals, including
Plan of care, risk factors, quality measures and categorization payment are all derived from this precious form. It is empowering to collect the data because the collection predicts many pertinent areas to the productivity of the client 's condition. A conference with the client and their family is planned around the completion of this assessment to discuss the patient’s goals and the current status. As the coordinator of the meeting, my role is primarily oversight to makes sure all regulatory compliance has been met and is documented. To step out of my box an advocate for a review of the chart with the IDT prior to the meeting would not only empower me as a nurse but my colleagues, as well.
Note how the APA’s Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct might provide guidance. Evaluate the unique scholarly perspectives presented in your research to support your recommendations.

They provide the information in a way that is understanding to the patient and family.
