The theoretical framework gives a detailed reason to why the highlighted research ques-tion exists. Orem’s self-care deficit theory of nursing is the theoretical framework relat-ing to this research because the theory is further divided into three sub-theories in which requisite are line with the following: Individual stages of development and goals, Health conditions, Developmental states, Energy consumption and expenditure, Atmospheric conditions and also the theory gives room to investigate possible causes of malnutrition alongside nurse’s intervention by assessing the need for care, approaches and required interventions. According Orem in 2001, nursing can be viewed as part of the health sector that provides authorized care to individuals.
Family theories have been used throughout the history of nursing to help guide patient care and provide the best patient outcomes. Certain theories may be more applicable to the specific patient encounter; however, each theory has benefits and drawbacks to their use. The purpose of this paper is to examine two selected theories, comparing their strengths and weaknesses. I will also discuss a theoretical family in relation to one theory, and how that theory can be best integrated into the care provided by an Advanced Practice Nurse (APN). Description of Theories The Calgary Family Assessment Model (CFAM) focuses on the theory that one patient’s illness affects the entire family.
In psychiatric nursing in particular, following this model can allow a nurse to encourage a patient to be as independent as possible. Upon evaluation, while it provides a pattern to follow in order to deliver nursing care, it is too linear. Each patient’s recovery and circumstances are unique, and a nurse sometimes must adjust the level or order of care provided in order to suit the patient. Orem’s theory sets the standard of how nursing care should be delivered, when this isn’t realisitic. Overall, Orem’s model is a comprehensive pattern in providing nursing
The system understood to offer patients a central primary care practice or giver who organizes the patients' care across providers and settings. Some of the care offered comprises gynecology and obstetrics routines within the society, consenting to offer care to the proper clients having chronic sicknesses. Just like ACOs, medical homes offer patient-centered care. Medical homes offer services on a 24/7 basis thus creating nursing chances to attend to the patients’ needs that seek assistance at these amenities. This model empowers nurses to function as pioneers and educators to their peers (ANA,
(Stuart, 2012, P.172) The aims of the education are to enhance the knowledge, skill and confidence, then, encourage and motivate the people to make changes in their lifestyle for their own health. Health promotion, health education and nursing role There are few nursing roles that can demonstrate health promotion and education. It is consisting of client advocate, educator, counselor and health promotor. Client advocate A patient advocate is an advocate for clients’ rights. (Olin, 2012) According to the principle of protecting the patient, the nurse should support and provide information and knowledge to let people making decisions so as to promote self-determination.
Firstly, is the restores practices that modify the impact of illness and disease. In this way the nurse is able to assess holistically. Specifically, asking questions about their spiritual and social life. Secondly, is the supportive practices that are oriented toward modification of relationships or the environment to support health. This requires the nurses knowledge on the ability to judge their patients level of education and observe for patients response.
The Heart of a Nursing Coat of Arms Although the profession of nursing embodies numerous traits, the core traits I believe best symbolize nursing are; trustworthiness, being knowledgeable, compassionate, respectful and caring. The traits I will discuss in further depth are compassion, respect and knowledge. These three qualities I will apply to real life nursing situations. I will define how they are showcased by inspiring nursing teams and how far these traits take one in not only their nursing pursuit but also their everyday lives. For the compassionate nurse I will discuss, compassion literacy, delivering compassionate care, barriers to compassionate care and compassion fatigue and how countless nurses overcome this reoccurring response.
Advocacy Caregivers act as an advocate on behalf of patients when they are not able to speak for themselves. They support patient 's preferences for treatment, and serve as a bridge between them and doctors. They even advocate certain treatment or therapy that they feel could benefit the patient. Health monitoring How patient is coping with the treatment is essential. Since doctors cannot monitor their conditions regularly as they have to treat many patients, this job is done by caregivers.
The nurse practice of medication preparation involves the medication knowledge and requirement of environment. To revise the drug information and clean up the trolley are important for nurse to promote safety care for patient. On the above case of ignoring hand washing before administration, nurses have to pay more awareness to prevent accident from contamination which related to the sufficiency of nursing knowledge. For the task-associated sub-dimension, administration of drug is complicated because the procedure is ensuring the safe medication intake for patient. The nursing task may not only separate the drug to patient but also the daily care for patient, for instance, to feed patient and give wound dressing.
This study tends to be based on the self-care deficit theory which states that nursing care is required when an individual is incapable or is limited in providing effective self-care. This is applied where the mothers require support and information form the healthcare professions in order to be able to apply the care pathways to manage their weight (van Hoeven, et al,
