King Abdulaziz University offers a stand-alone module as part of their curriculum that has been adopted from the WHO Patient Safety Curriculum for Medical Schools (5). Thus, it resembles the intervention sample, as their program enables students to combine knowledge, attitudes and skills to achieve a deeper understanding of how their performance impacts on patient safety and the quality of healthcare. This paper aims to identify the problem regarding patient safety and evaluate the impact of teaching patient safety principles in one of its major universities in Saudi Arabia. It also evaluates the self-ratings of the students’ knowledge, attitudes and skills regarding errors and patient safety in a total of six medical schools in Saudi Arabia. It will highlight the initial results of the implementation and initial evaluation of the module by the medical students of King Abdulaziz University.
We are now learning about current techniques and practice standards while in school and we are learning the new ways of nursing which will affect the future of nurses. The one concept I do still have questions about is the professional, legal and ethical dimensions of nursing because I find it very hard to understand. How do you know what is right and what isn’t when everyone has their own opinion on care, ethics, and values? This might be difficult for me to understand right away until I learn
They also may face a higher risk of being involved in a situation that could lead to disciplinary charges or malpractice litigation. It is essential for nurses to understand and practice moral and ethical principles in their practice for the safe performance and the best patient outcomes. Ethical Dilemma of Value, Beliefs, and Perspectives During my first semester of nursing school, I experienced ethical dilemma. It was our first day in a clinical setting at the Avalon Health Care facility, a comprehensive, Medicare-certified, care facility that includes senior living, rehabilitation therapy, and hospice services. One of my classmates and I were assigned for the preceptorship to the experienced nurse on the rehabilitation floor, where patients receive personalized treatment plans to help them through their illness process.
The Medical Model finds issues though rigorous testing done by specialists and relies on a definite diagnosis of a patient who can then be treated with medical and rehab. It places disability in the category of an illness or an incapacity and can be very broad in its thinking. “With the medical model, the ‘problem’ is seen to lie with the person with the disability” and “the person is seen by this model as abnormal and remains so until the condition is cured” (E. Flood, 2013) The Medical Model looks at diagnosing problems they believe can be then medically treated and, further down the road, they look at rehabilitating ‘sufferers’ through medical means. Strengths; • “The most positive thing about the medical model
It is a five-step process, comprising of questions within each step to allow you to self-examine yourself and the event. Step one is the narration of the experience, step two involves the reflection of what the main goal was, step three is the factors which influenced the reaction, step four is the assessment of what could have been done differently to improve the experience and step five focuses on the learning from the experience. Step five also allows health professionals to examine their own feelings about the experience. Johns model focuses on developing new knowledge and awareness of incidents which occur from health care practices (Johns, 2013). This model allowed me to gain a more in depth understanding of my experience, thus improving my own personal and professional development.
EBP has 5 essential steps, asking a focused clinical question, acquiring the evidence to answer the question, appraising the research, applying the research findings to patient care, and finally evaluating your performance.” (Steglitz, Warnick, Hoffman, Johnston, & Spring, 2015). In my philosophy I sate that I want to provide the best care I capable of. I can show my professional caring by ensuring that practice is evidence-based by using the five essential steps of EBP. This will be ensuring that I provide educated healthcare to my
However, this can also work against the authoritative position that doctors hold. If someone with a PhD preforms malpractice the audience is easily angered because a medical doctor is someone who all should be able to trust. While the nursing students where observing the medical staff during clinicals a student reported of “a doctor performed frequent and unnecessary vaginal examinations to improve his practice skills” (pg. 593). By using credibility the author was able to support the purpose of their article to inform the audience of malpractice and ethical conflicts in the medical
4). The clinical reasoning cycle assists nursing students in identifying important issues for an individual patient and allows the student to look at the situation from a holistic point of view (Meissner 2011, p. 88). This process of critically analysing and using the memory enables the student to develop experience and a deeper understanding of nursing
These systems are not limited to the cortex, but are primarily associated with the brainstem, subcortical nuclei, autonomic nervous system, hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, and endocrine systems that regulate bodily states, emotion, and reactivity . Empirical research examining the components of clinical empathy is imperative in order to understand why some studies have shown that empathy declines during medical school and residency , . Another important reason for conducting research on the underlying factors that contribute to clinical empathy and potential associated emotional dysfunctions among health-care professionals is the development of educational intervention for medical students , . The goal of the current study sought to determine which aspects of empathy are associated with positive or negative outcome (well-being and burnout respectively) in practicing physicians. Validated self-report instruments were used to assess emotional awareness, empathic concern, personal distress, prosocial behavior, burnout, and
Study #1 The study that was chosen reviews how problem-based learning can help improve critical thinking skills for nursing students in a clinical setting. We all know as nurses that when we go to nursing school, we learn a lot about theory, reading labs and what to do in “certain situations”. We learn about hypo and hyperglycemia, the functions of the heart, how to use dosage and calculation skills if the power goes out in the hospital and lastly, how to write in APA format. While all of these things are important, to learn critical thinking skills takes practice and is learned over time and is usual longer that the time we spend in nursing school. Anyone can use their mind to think.
The paper was written for the Health promotion III course. Through research I was able to analyze the effectiveness of the MI protocol and the effect that prompt initiation of the protocol had on the patients, as well as look at the nursing role in the protocol. Artifact #2 was written during the Pharmacology course, and is a teaching plan for a patient taking the drug Keflex (Cephalosporin). Through research of the drug a partner and I were able to identify nursing interventions and education necessary when caring for a patient on this drug. The teaching plan enabled us to look at the various side effects and contraindications for the drug that could
This is certainly essential with the patient care. Students will also be taught concerning the human anatomy, methods associated to dealing with of needles, establishing correct rapport with the patients, guaranteeing safety and maintaining information during the phlebotomy training. Students are exposed to deal with several types of medical equipments such as biohazardous waste containers, spill kits, syringes, vaccum tubes, bandage, tapes, blood culture bottles, tourniquets and locking arm rests. The equipments are organized such that they fall beneath the lates technology set. That is completed with a purpose to train the phlebotomist in a better and environment friendly manner.
Also, barcode scanning can be used to prevent medical errors by giving the correct medications to the patient and also prompts the EHR for any related allergies to the medication that is prescribed during treatment or hospitalization. Therefore, continued success rests heavily upon nurse educator 's to collectively instruct and integrate informatics in the classroom and clinical setting. The key concepts of informatics such as the basic ideas that underlie modern computers, networks, and information be introduced in the curriculum (Camilli,
Objective: At the end of the NUR 201 course, students will be able to outline and analyze the implication of societal directions and social determinants of health on the health of unique, families, groups, and communities (Iwasiw & Goldenberg, 2015). This course objective will provide trends and relevant information about health promotion. It makes nursing students to know and understand what is the purpose of the health promotion and caring. In this case, this course objective is necessary in nursing curriculum because it makes nurses or nursing students to encourage and empowering individual, families, groups, and communities to engage in immunization program, weight loss programs, or any other programs related with the health promotion. The operation of promoting the health of unique, families, collection, and communities is an integral component of professional nursing practice (Iwasiw & Goldenberg, 2015).
The research projects presented in the thesis are the results of my own original work with the guidance from my supervisor and the supervisory committee. The topic for my thesis work came from my interest in optimizing the management of individuals with low back pain (LBP), course work, and from my personal experience as a physical therapist and with my supervisor as a graduate student. The main contribution of this thesis is to optimize healthcare professional practices in chronic LBP management by implementing key components of Chronic Care Model. Identifying the barriers to the delivery of self-management support and the use of PROM scores in clinical practice may help clinicians integrate these two approaches into clinical practice. This
