This is another important effect it has on healthcare. It is important to nursing because nurses are on the frontline facilitating bedside care and working hand to hand which each disciplinary team member to provide the best care
However, I am aware that the beginning of effective leadership would be by developing a vision of the organization where a nurse leader serves. Coming up with a picture of what would be a future of excellence in delivering nursing care in the organization would be crucial in motivating and raising commitment among the other nurses. As a nurse leader, the vision that I would hold dear would be to ensure I have the capacity to make sure that the systems in place benefit individual needs of the patients in a manner that patients are always handled with respect and dignity while the work that nurses perform is respected and valued. For this to be met, there is a need for the nurse leader to assist the other nurses grasp the envisioned picture and remaining at the forefront in directing the others on where to go. Subsequently, I would want to be the kind of a nurse leader who can enable the staff to grasp the vision, to make sure the appropriate people assume the nursing roles and to model the behaviors that are desired of the other

1. The implications of shifting care delivery strategies for the workforce from provider-centric to patient- and family-centered care are improved patient outcomes and quality of life, increased patient satisfaction, forming new partnerships with patient, families, and health care providers to create best outcomes and enhance the quality and safety of health care, reduce organization liability claims, professional development, this delivery of care being incorporated in organization 's polices and goals, and an overall improvement in the delivery of health care by practices understanding how they can better serve the needs of patients and families by using this delivery of care model. All of these implications can occur if the delivery of care shift from
During this assignment, the task asks for an overview of what Evidence Based Practice (EBP) is, and why is it so important and relevant to nursing as a generic term? The nursing and midwifery council (NMC) states that, all healthcare professionals are required to carry out care based on the best available evidence or best practice (NMC, 2008). A broad definition of Evidence Based Practice (EBP) came from David Sackett, (founder of the NHS Research and Development Centre and Colleagues); he expressed that EBP is: ‘The conscientious and judicious use of current best evidence in conjunction with clinical expertise and patient values to guide health [and social] care decisions’. (Sackett et al, 2000: 71-72).
Every nursing duty hinges on this one, simple aspect. To effectively meet a patient’s needs, it becomes essential that the nurse understand in part, who the patient is. Diversity encompasses many elements that integrate to make each patient unique. Patient-centered nursing takes into account patient background, and past experiences as well as desires, beliefs, motivations, personality, culture, religion, and family life. The better the nurse knows and understands the patient, the better prepared she/he will be when developing a plan of care, and the better the patient will respond to nursing interventions.
Watching the actual procedures being done and realizing the the importance of individual as well as the collaborative effort between the team of professionals that goes in to achieving the desired outcome, to say the least, is inspiring. Positive clinical observation such as my time at the post-anesthesia care unit greatly influences the course I am taking with my nursing path. Indeed, this clinical observation not only showed the importance of being able to work autonomously for patient advocacy, but also taught me the importance of being able to work as a part of a health care team in delivering the best possible patient care. Each nurse in that unit displayed full grasp of the process and showed a deep level of expertise in addition to their commitment to providing care.
It guides our thought processes and focuses on the specific areas to bring the patient back to a certain point where he or she can have a quality life. It gives us a lot of direction, and it builds basic structures to promote the greatest quality of nursing care in any individuals. Nurses are not just doing actions, they critically thinking about particular patients’ needs and applying certain theories and ideas
Both, Brooker’s and the health foundation’s principles emphasise the importance of valuing and treating patients with dignity while providing care, this is important as it empowers the patient and helps the health professionals see their patients as a person instead of their medical conditions only. Treating patients with dignity also corresponds with the set of values 6Cs (NHS 2013). The 6C’s are Care, compassion, commitment, competence, courage and communication.
In order to achieve success in strategic planning at administrative nursing, I often meet with nurses and other healthcare personnel to identify the major problems at work, seek ways to solve them and processes to take in solving the problems in order to achieve excellence in services while in patients care, I ensure that the nurses plan care accordingly using a great planning tool in nursing for planning patients care known as nursing process approach.

The University of Pittsburg Medical Center (UPMC) has taken a unique approach to improving revenue and reducing bad debt. By taking “a proactive, patient-friendly approach to communicating with patients about their financial responsibility through an integrated revenue cycle model,” UPMC has increased patient payments from an average of $16 million per month in 2012 to an average of $20 million per month since March 2013 (Langford, 2013, p. 88). Additionally, UPMC has been able to “significantly reduced bad debt and enhanced patient relationships through greater financial advocacy” (Langford, 2013, p. 88). In the fiscal year of 2009, UPMC’s bad debt accounted for 52% of UPMC’s uncompensated care, and as of 2013, the bad debt accounts for 24%
Demonstrating ‘respect for patients’ values, preferences and expressed needs,’ is one of the eight dimensions of person centred care outlined by the Picker Institute (ref). Morgan and Yoder (2012) described ‘respectful care’ as being an attribute of person centred and while the author does not disagree with this idea of ‘respectful care’ being inherent to person centred care, the author believes that Slater (2006) more accurately describes dignity and respect as being antecedents of person centred care. These antecedents drive respect of personal values, individual needs and decisions, a consequence of which is an improved therapeutic relationship and health outcomes. The author considers this view of dignity, compassion and respect as antecedents
