Definition of the Concept From the previous literature review and defining characteristics mentioned prior, patient advocacy is providing support and guidance of an individual in need. It is within the nurse’s best judgement to ensure safety and protection for the patient. By valuing the patient, the nurse will build a therapeutic trust relationship with the client which will secure the patient’s freedom and self-determination (Baldwin, 2003).

These companies conducted several mergers and each entity are connected with the board fail to deliver positive results in any capacity.
The Importance of an Early Hospice Admission Hospice care is a patient centered approach to end of life diagnoses. Hospice care is provided at the end of life to patients with a terminal diagnosis of six months or less to live. After a terminal diagnosis, an early admission of at least three months prior to death can be beneficial to patients and families. An early admission benefits the family and the patient by providing a patient centered approach to care, and relief from pain. Strong relationships with the care team are a key component to the success of hospice.
In today’s healthcare setting there is a false belief that care for the patient ends once discharge occurs. From the moment the client is admitted into the healthcare facility our main focus as a unit is to make sure that the patient is alleviated of their acute episode of illness and discharged back home. As healthcare providers it is our responsibility to ensure that the patient has the smoothest transition from hospital to home also known as transitional care. According to the American Geriatrics Society (2003) transitional care is defined as a set of actions designed to ensure the coordination and continuity of health care as patients transfer between different locations or different levels of care within the same location.

The concept of patient safety traced as far back as the foundations of nursing. Perhaps nursing was born out of the necessity of patient safety and care. Florence Nightingale’s work in 1853-1856 aimed at improving the outcome of sick and injured soldiers during wartime (Telford, & Keeling, 2014, p.3). Therefore establishing the necessity for improvement in patient safety. By the early 19th century the National Organization of Public Health Nursing was developed to merge the public health needs and preventive care thus leading the way for the federal maternal and infant act of 1921 (Telford, & Keeling, 2014, p.7).
Communication in a crisis is vital. It is often the first aspect of teamwork to go because many team members have different ways of dealing with a crisis. It is important to slow down for a moment and communicate what you are doing so there aren’t any errors. Simply stating what you are doing allows the other teammates to plan for their next steps. Organization is also hard to keep when things change unexpectedly.
(Kathleen, B. (April 1987) Which theory also mention that lecture is a passive nature which is lack of aiming and the structure, it maybe withdraw from student or leaner real life practice, lack of understanding on previous and current knowledge and effort required to maintain attention, that the reason why adult always looked for their need to learn ().On this statement, adult need to understand or knowing the reason behind before start to learn.

As Vizzini (2014) pointed out, besides leading by example, there are other ways to get the ethical point across. Finding teachable moments, explaining self-discipline and how to incorporate it into your daily routine as well as coaching work, as well as impressing the fact that a coach is a role model, this will help coaches to improve their techniques. Even with ethical coaching as the backdrop, there will be times when the coachee and the coach will not have a clear-cut way to a solution. These “gray areas” (Vizzini 2014) can be difficult to navigate. Yet ethics will help so much as they do not tell people what to do, they are just guidelines.
BARRIERS AND SUPPORT TO IMPLEMENTATION Paliadelis et al, (2005), in their study outlined various barriers to family centered care. In his study, lack of understanding of the concept of family centered care, lack of guidelines and policies and hospital management misunderstanding the presence of family to mean less work for staff. Furthermore, inadequate staff coupled with time constraints which can translates into poor motivation due to work overload was also identified as a barrier to the success of family centered care. In other instances, parents are sometimes not interested in involving themselves in the care of their hospitalized children. Outdated nursing habits can also not be eliminated.

Finally, to end by changing the name to Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in July, 2001.
To be able to apply this quote from Mr. Adam K. Thiel, you need to have the right personnel in the Training Division including management. Having competent instructor/trainer with the participation of management is essential to reach goals and objectives established by the Department. Many changes has been occurring over the last few years in our Training Division. Like a mention previously, no one wants to relearn something already well understood, so why would they want to take over this division? To be able to maintain a professional fire service, stability in the Training Division is extremely important.

I was forced to try different approaches and decided to stop being overly friendly and start having a more authoritative role. In addition to flexibility, I found it was extremely important to uphold the competency of self-control when working with students with DD. Self-Control is the ability to control your emotions and not let them interfere with the way you provide support and care.

However, I did not let these feelings show during my time with the students and I tried my best shrug off the bad days by continuing to work towards future
