The Care Programme Approach (CPA) is a way that services are assessed, planned, co-ordinated and reviewed for someone with mental health problems or a range of related complex needs. People can be offered CPA support if they are diagnosed as having a severe mental disorder. The Care Programme Approach (CPA) was introduced in 1990 to provide a framework for effective mental health care for people with severe mental health illness.
I communicated with the patient’s, my preceptor, other nurses, the PCT’s, PT, and the kitchen staff. When I was in the patient’s room I was sure to explain what I was doing, and answer any questions the patients had about their plan of care. I worked with my preceptor throughout the shift, asking questions, clarifying orders, clarifying medications, procedures and more. I communicated with other nurses by thoroughly receiving and handing off report. I communicated with the PCT’s that I would perform the vital signs for my patients and worked with the PCT when my patient needed labs to be sent down.
The last three clinical weeks at the Long Term Care Facility have provided me with real life situations to enforce the SILC clinical skills and improve my therapeutic communication. This experience has helped shaped me as a professional by allowing me to develop essential skills that contribute to the holistic care of nursing. A significant improvement that I developed following this experience included my assessment skills during every resident interaction. During these resident encounters, I began to address the resident’s overall well-being and comfort rather than just the current problem. I started incorporating questions about pain, how the resident slept at night, their current mood, and many other questions addressing the resident’s status as a whole.
In this paper, I will be reflecting on what I have learned during this course about human services and systems thinking. This will include human service definitions, themes, and the history of the helping profession. Additionally, I will write about the models of service delivery, system approach to people, relationships, and organizations. Finally, I will conclude with where I am now as I consider a career in human services and where I would like to be in the future with my involvement in human services.

An event that was significant to me throughout clinical placement was when I forgot to introduce myself to a visually impaired client. The event that I encountered occurred on my second day of clinical placement at Fieldstone Commons. This event highlights the need for effective communication when treating a patient that suffers with visual impairment. I assisted in morning care for multiple clients, one client stood out to me in particular.
For the last four months at Berkshire Care Centre as a social work intern, I found that I have become familiar with the procedures and policies of the home, which has helped enhance my understanding of what it is like working in a long term care home. Before, I did not know much about long term care homes or what a social worker’s role is. From working at the home, it forced me to get out of my comfort and do things that I thought I would never be able to do like facilitating care conferences on my own with various health staff present. Also I am actively involved with the Abaqis quality improvement training where I get to make observations of residents, conducting a questionnaire with either a family member or a resident themselves and also
Overall I, myself have been troubled with how to write this essay. I wish to convey how I was a good match for NHS without coming off as pretentious or inadequate. So, I came to a solution where I would do what I enjoy, going straight to the point. If the doubt is in my scholarly attributes, I have already passed the criteria for joining NHS. If the doubt is in my leadership capabilities, I believe that I am able to rise to whatever occasion I may meet. If it is a question of my character, you will notice I am bluntly honest with simple morals. If the question is about my service, I enjoy doing service for my community, but I believe service should be done without recognition.
I feel that strength of mine in this domain would be advocating for my clients quality of care, analyzing my own nursing practice and understanding medications as part of the 7 rights. There was a incident where I had asked for assistance from another care provider on the floor to help with turning a changing a brief on my client. We had to use the lift to move the client to the bed and then I perform peri care. The client expressed their wish to stay in bed until dinner, which was in 3 hours. The other care provider had wanted to leave the sling under the client because it would be easier for when they had to move her back into the chair at dinner. Although this may have saved time, I felt that it would be best to remove it because of the client’s risk of skin break down as well as
My visit to foster care in the summer of 2013 in Dubai, U.A.E. taught me that happiness doesn’t depend on materialistic things or aspects, but rather on intangible things. When a group of volunteers on the street in Dubai Marina handed out flyers about foster care visits, my friends and I decided to visit a foster care as a part of giving back. We were very nervous about the visit, after all we have never dealt with such a situation. We were scared to hurt the feelings of those kids by showing redundant empathy. We arrived at the foster care at approximately 10 o’clock and were greeted by an advisor who was going to accompany us. It gave us a peace of mind knowing that we had a trained and experienced person with us
When I was finishing grade 12, I thought about going into social services. What the problem was was that the courses and skills they offered did not seem to fit into what I was looking for in a career. What drew me to apply for this position is how interesting it is, and the responsibilities that come with it. Everything clicked into place for me, I could actually see myself doing this for a career. When looking at my resume, you will think that I am not qualified enough for this job. In some aspects that is true, my database management and spreadsheet software skills are out of practice and are a current weak point for me. However, I am determined and eager to fix these weak points. What I do excel in is having sound judgment and strong discretion
This semester, I was placed in a long-term care facility for my pre-graduation course. On my floor, I work with an RN, an RPN, and 6 PSWs. Our floor consists of 60 residents and 30 residents are assigned per nurse. The PSWs are divided into 6 teams and 10 residents are assigned per PSW. For the past 2 months that I have worked for facility X, there is one thing that I constantly notice; that is the shortage of staff on the unit. I see PSWs working double time just to compensate for the workload of another co-worker who was not there. I also observe how the staff rush their work and end up not delivering the suitable care the residents need. According to the PSW that I work with, she stated, “This is unfair for us who are here. I don’t even
To begin, I feel that I am a dedicated student and that being so, I believe that I am a great candidate for becoming a part of the NHS program. And because of even being considered for a role in this program I feel very dignified. As well as, to hope that soon enough I will be a member of NHS.
