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. As a result, the following primary search terms were used; ‘Assertiveness in Nursing’, ‘Lack of assertiveness in Nursing’ and most significantly ‘Factors related to lack of assertiveness in Nursing’.
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. The academic journal written by Martha Alligood, RN, PhD, affiliated with East Carolina University, explains how beneficial Imogene King’s Theory of Goal Attainment is used in nursing practice. This theory helps nurses create a plan of care for patients with family inclusion.
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. b.
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.
These treatments, however, did not help treat female hysteria. 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
