Descriptive theories accounts for and thoroughly describe a phenomenon. The framework of the Chronic Care Model and elements of the socio-ecological Model guided the development of the interview guide. The purpose of the study was to explore patient perceptions of patient-provider communication in cervical cancer related care among low-income English-and Spanish speaking women. The research design used in this research article is ethnographic research. Ethnographic research is a type of qualitative research that studies cultures.
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.
The answer to this question is included in many of the definitions of assertiveness- standing up for one's perspectives. Although Nurse Smith did not want to work an extra shift, her lack of assertiveness made her fail to decline the matron’s request. The last question, which forms the basis of this review of literature, was why Nurse Smith was not assertive. The search strategy thus aimed at finding out the factors that are responsible for the lack of assertiveness among nurses.
Alligood, M. (2010). Family Healthcare With King's Theory of Goal Attainment. Nursing Science Quarterly, 23(2), 99-104. doi:10.1177/0894318410362553 Martha Alligood provides an in-depth analysis of King’s theory that was chosen as the topic for this paper.
Give two reasons why the use of phage therapy was controversial, and eventually abandoned in the West. a. Phage therapy was controversial in part because doctors testing phage on patients was done without controls and, in many cases, on self-limiting conditions. It was unclear if bacterial diseases were being cured because of surgical procedure, the phage, or a combination of the two. Control groups were never established, and the phage phenomenon quickly found itself without any scientific research backing it.
From these realizations I have concluded that the professional nursing theories which most align with my own philosophy is a combination of Jean Watson’s theory of human caring and Rosemarie Parse’s theory of human becoming. Watson’s theory of human caring outlines the science behind caring as a driving force and framework for practice in nursing. It explores the concept that “humanities address themselves to deeper values of the quality of living and dying, which involve philosophical, ethical, psychosocial and moral issues” (Watson, 2005, p. 2). Within her original text, Watson outlined 10 “carative factors” which help integrate the science of healthcare field with the more holistic nuances of nursing and the phenomena that is the human

Substance abuse among stress nurses 2 Why do nurses and doctors abuse drug? Nursing is a professionalism, and it is a rewarded career. There is a shortage of nurses worldwide, so nursing is always highly demanded. Nurses have been trained to be the first to treat and the last to provide a comfort and safety high quality care for the patients. There are more female nurses in the profession, and they tend to abuse prescription drugs as females may have more stress than males naturally.
This is applicable to all residents and staff. There were no references or evidences included in the guideline. Wanda, the director of nursing, has stated they consulted a local wound care specialist, pharmacists, wound supply carriers, and a standard nursing wound care protocol. I can say that these references are not in the highest level in the hierarchy of evidence. Most of them are level VII and experts agree that evidence in this level is not reliable.
In fact, with no health or ‘scientific’ empirical evidence to validate these claims, the medical practices were unethical and resulted in significant trauma to female patients (Tasca et al, 2012). Evidently, this is a case of how social and political processes can lead to certain ways in which to be
EBP was first initiated as a strategy for research and implementation in medical science by using blind studies and clinical trials in order to develop effective treatments from collected evidence. The challenge of EBP is that it has proven to be a failed practice in many fields. For example, using random clinical trials (RCT) where results are influenced by multi factors in leadership development is not an appropriate research strategy for evidence-based practices. The growth of evidence based practices has spreaded rapidly as a methodology for providing what works and to establish predictable results in fields other than clinical care and medicine and with this practice there will be controversies. It is said that random clinical trials are not always the best for decisions it can be misleading.
(2005) also mentioned that the successful implementation of a change is based on the evaluation of structure, process, and outcome indicators. The evaluation of structure and process outcomes is beneficial in determining the success of implementing evidence-based decision. On the other hand, the success of the change in nursing practice can be evaluated with the intermediary outcome indicators such as organizational, patient, or health system. The
In summary, Charlie Gordon 's doctors were not ethical because they did not follow the Hippocratic Oath or ask themselves the necessary ethical questions doctors must ask themselves. They acted foolishly and because of that, they hurt Charlie in the long run. Possibly, if Dr. Nemur and Dr. Strauss gave him all the information, Charlie wouldn 't have agreed to the operation and wouldn’t have had to go through the pain of losing everything. He couldn 't make a good choice based on the information
According to the article, “at the state levels, [the] nurse [can be] instrumental in influencing change in scope of practice… expanded roles for advanced practice nurses” (Falk, 2014, p. 203). There are many people out in the community that now need primary care doctors because of the new health care laws and there are not enough doctors out there. By increasing the roles that an advanced practice nurse can do, it might help decrease the number of patient’s that do not have primary care doctors. By the master’s prepared nurse trying to get all people in the community a health care provider it will decrease on the visits to the emergency room that are
Evidence based practice is using the most recent research to asses the patient and provide them with the best outcome. “The NMC’s (2015a) Code: Professional Standards of Practice and Behaviour for Nurses and Midwives states that it is the responsibility of each nurse and midwife to maintain their knowledge and skills and to practice using the best available evidence.” The purpose of this paper is to mention challenges that nurses face when trying to implement EB, blah blah blah. What it is what it isn’t why it makes a difference and why its crucial.
