The aspect of a concept labels a phenomenon or an obstacle fact perceived through the senses. Concepts do assist in the formulation of a mental image based on an object or condition. Concepts also help us to name occurrences and things in the world and as well as assist in communication (Medeiros et al. 2015). The two distinct practice concepts in nursing that I would take into account includes patient profile concepts which refer to those ideas laying the foundation for a patient-centered approach for nurses (Marriner-Tomey, 1989).
The concept is an exceptional way of being human, a unique way of being contemporary, observant, mindful, and calculated as the nurse operates with another person. These viewpoints have importance for medicine as well as for nursing or other health professions. The complete practice of human caring theory is most fully realized in a nursing theory because nursing allows for the constant caring factor that medicine does not have;
Theory of Caring Tammy Radford East Tennessee State University Nursing Theory Jean Watson’s Theory of Caring is a middle range theory which “focuses on the human component of caring and the moment to moment encounters between the one who is caring and the one who is being cared for, especially the caring activities performed by nurses as they interact with others”. According to Watson, “caring is central to nursing practice and promotes health better than a simple medical cure”. Nursing theories improve patient care, patient outcomes and communication between nurse and patient. Major Concepts The major concepts of Watson’s Theory of Human Caring are the person and their well-being, environment and nursing care. This theory contains spiritual components that move both the nurse and the patient and lets them relate on a deeper level and rise above the moment.
Some of the important elements the theory addresses are: the caring healing moment, intentionality and interdependence. In regards to the first factor, it is evident that Abraham Maslow offered inspiration to Watson who later came up with the concept. It mainly indicates that nurses should focus more on the higher order needs compared to lower order necessities, since this will enable them to offer the love and affection that ailing individuals desire. Secondly, intentionality creates an intent to act on something. It ensures that nurses focus on the specific factor affecting the patient in order to offer specialized attention.
Furthermore, my case analysis reveals that nurse leaders should appreciate individuality, and most importantly, regardless of the type of interaction, we as humans’ desire, feeling valued, especially by an organization, which can empower individuals. Therefore, applying The Quality-Caring Model© by Dr. Joanne R. Duffy effectively addresses the global issues of job satisfaction and nurse retention, which in turn, can have a significant impact the healthcare outcome for individuals, families, populations, and/or
Alligood (2014) states that Boykin and Schoenhofer’s Theory of Nursing as Caring is an exception to this rule because “rather than providing empirical variables from which hypotheses and testable predications are made, the theory of nursing as caring qualitatively transforms practice” (p. 362). Alligood (2014) argues that the Theory of Nursing as Caring is focused on unique human interaction that cannot and should not be objectified and is therefore impossible to be founded in the empirical way of
My belief is that nurses should consider all a patient’s subsystems and the environment in which they live into to determine if the patient may be able achieve health as defined in our textbook. For example, people living areas during periods of social unrest and government chaos, most likely lack a lot of internal and external resources to be able to manage their health. As future nurses I believe we must keep in mind that there are different degrees of health and we should build trust with our patients, one way to do that is to respect the cultural values and beliefs of our patients. In my belief, an overall physical and psychological wellness of a patient is what I consider important aspects of their
Furthermore, nursing means knowledge of the current evidence-based practice to help a patient with the highest quality of care, but respecting patient’s wishes, if the wishes differ from current evidence-based care. Particularly important is the holistic view of a patient. Individuals do not live in a vacuum; family, society, cultural standards, and the connection to nature influence the patient and need consideration when caring for the patient. Personal nursing philosophy compared to Madeleine Leininger’s Theory of Culture Care Diversity and Universality Madeleine
he purpose of this paper is to present the philosophy of man as a knowing and relational being applied to nursing practice. Through knowing one’s philosophy, one can discover thoughts that lead to possible action, helps people to determine the nature of truth and knowledge and to find what is the value and importance of life. This idea is significant because as a student nurse it had an enormous influence on everyday lives and professionally, establishing rapport with the patient nurses can gather information, work effectively, gives quality services and promote health. This philosophy may contribute to the society because people held certain beliefs about what is important, true, real, and significant and about how life should be ordered.
Research Question: Does the relationship the nurse forms with a patient affect their patient’s outcome? Abstract: As the medical field continues to advance in technology, efficiency, evidenced based systemastic structure, inevitably the expectations and the responsibilities for the nurse only increase. In order to be competent withn their role, a nurse must stay focused, perform interventions quickly, safely, resourcal, and effective, the risk of desensitization in unconsciously lost due increase the timely and sufficient expectations. In turn, the risk for a therapeutic relationship between the nurse can be lost. With the recognition of task detailed oriented, Jean Watson developed the Caring of a Human which primarily put an emphasis holistic
