Goal setting is considered ‘best practice’ in rehabilitation (McPhearson et al., 2009, p. 297) and patient-centred treatment are concepts described as essential features of any successful rehabilitation programme (Cott, 2004). Holliday et al. (2007) examined the patients perspective of goal setting in a neurological rehabilitation setting and it was found that healthcare professionals needed to explore patients’ understandings of their disease and their experiences and expectations of goal setting to ensure goal setting is a meaningful activity. The focus of increasing patient participation in care is morally correct and indicated by evidence of increasing engagement in rehabilitation. Involving the patient in goal setting was found to give patients a sense of ownership for their goals.
In addition, WHO, (2009) mentions the various experiences through which self efficacy can be made effective. They include the mastery experiences where previous successes will equip patient with a lot of skills; vicarious experience, where witnessing other individuals complete tasks successfully, increases self efficancy for an individual patient; verbal persuasion, which relates to the impact of encouragement on an individuals’ percieved self efficacy and psychological self efficacy like mood, emotionla state, physical reactions which influence one’s perception of self efficacy Another important patient skill is health literacy. It is the ability to understand health information and use it to make good decisions about health and medical care (Koelen & Lindstrom, 2005). Lower health literancy is reported mostly among the elderly, less educated, poor who are characterised with increased rates of hospitalisation and high cost of care associated with lower health outcomes. (WHO, 2009) Creation of a facilitating environment and positive

The nursing department values the integrity of the diversity of students, promotes health, hope, and caring to the human condition, and promotes excellence in the commitment of continuous growth, education, improvement, and understanding (NLN, n.d.). Nurses must use communication, critical thinking, evidence based research, problem solving, and effective decision making for the delivery of safe, quality care of the patient (CSI Nursing Department, 2014). The CSI Nursing Department mission and philosophy related to the values in the nursing specialty organizations in that they all emphasis the care of the patient and emphasis values that are different in their level of the care. Excellence and providing effective patient care is seen mostly in every organization values because education is the background for providing the best care.

Many states are experimenting with different models of integrated care to develop the best-case collaboration for patients and healthcare workers. In order to reduce the complications of the current health care system the integrated care offers methods of reducing long-term health cost and create better healthcare outcomes. For example, allowing shared patient medical records will increase efficiency and improve physicians understanding of their visiting patient. Having the full medical access for patients allows health care providers to make informed decisions on their patients overall care. This collaboration allows providers to work together in combination therapy more seamlessly and transparent to have better outcomes.
