The concern of the study is to know the long-term result of MBCT with the use of standardized measures of depressions (BDI-II), mindfulness (MAAS), and rumination (RSS) and the outcomes are collected yearly for 3 years. Thirty-nine participants were observed and the results showed a significant decrease in depression. Although the depression scores for the last year increased, it was still inside the normal range of BDI-II. Rumination and mind attention showed a strong negative correlation which means as rumination increases, the mind attention decreases and vice versa. It was therefore concluded that continued MBCT aids and training can help relapse prevention.
Ironically, the hospital wanted to make sure they got a good score on Joint Commission as a patient was dying in the next room due to a medication error. The case of Lewis Blackman is now a teaching tool to nurses and other members of the medical team on cognitive barriers we can have while delivery care and we all need to focus on our decision making skills to ensure red flags are not missed to keep patients
Message decoded - this is when the other person tries to understand what is being communicated, speech and body language can also be misinterpreted. 6. Message understood - This is when communication is successful, although this does not always happen immediately. I am now going to relate Argyle’s communication cycle to a conversation with a doctor and a patient within the health and social care setting. Doctor Karim is talking to Yasmin who is a patient about her depression.
The Effects of Working the Night Shift, written by Julia Tortorice, is an article about it affects health or nurses and how it affects their families. The author also mentions that currently acts are pending to improve staffing and the overall health of nurses. The author successfully uses humor and the logical appeal of pathos to make it easier to understand. She also gives advice of what a nurse can do which will help me brain storm my solutions in my paper. For instance, Tortorice (2014) says, “Studies have suggested that napping nurses suffer from less fatigue than non-napping nurses” (p. 3).
2012). An anticholinergic nebulizer, ipratropium was given to mrs.Smith as per the order which helped to reduce dyspnea and cough slightly. Her Early warning score still remains 6.

This can be done through surveys and allowing the patients to feel value; for example, a doctor ordering a MRI can be considered a customer because he/she receives the service of the radiology department. The last quality initiative is employee empowerment. This empowerment will allow the employees to improve their environment, but also advocates for change, and overcoming resistance among other employees. For example, the manager will work with both the clinical and administrative staffs to reduce the wait times, improve patients’ satisfaction, as well as incomplete
The ward concentrated on treating elderly patients, a lot of whom were suffering from some form of mental ailment and seemed distressed and unsure of their surroundings. I witnessed first-hand what I feel is the reality of care of our growing population of elderly people if developments in neuroscience aren't made quickly. The work experience itself involved shadowing a Physiotherapist. I was surprised by the extent of the Neurological physiotherapy available to those suffering from disorders of the central nervous system and how this therapy can create new neuron pathways through repetitive exercises. I thought this was an excellent application of Neuroscience to help people regain mobility and their autonomy as much as possible.
Often family members of patient needs are being neglected or unintentionally overlooked especial simple needs. The opportunity given to family members to be involved in bedside care lessen their feeling of helplessness. Addressing family needs help them through the process thus minimise adverse psychological outcomes. Further testing of facilitated sense making is warranted to recognise if the set interventions are effective. Perhaps it will be in advantage having a post-ICU clinic run by nurses like in the United Kingdom to assist family needs in addressing long-lasting anxiety, depression and symptoms of
Mirroring is a perfect skill nurses can use to uplift a patient and change their mood. Mirroring is mimicking the motions of another, but it’s done without the other person knowing that they are following your lead. In this case, the goal is to get the patient to follow the lead of the nurse as he or she changes their body position to a more upright position that shows positivity. Verbal and nonverbal communication play a role in therapeutic communication, often as techniques. The relationship is based on mutual trust and respect being sensitive to self
Psychosocially a patient and family need time to understand and accept the diagnosis. Providing education to the family and patient about what to expect will relieve the stress of the unknown. It is necessary to readdress taught information as reinforcement will provide an increase in confidence. In addition to providing emotional support, it will be important to help the family organize the patient’s environment. Setting up a hospital bed up in an area that is free of clutter, with room for family members to deliver care.
