It was created to help with nursing education, so it most applicable in that area. The nursing model is intended to guide care in hospitals, but can be applied to community nursing, as well. The model has interrelated concepts of health and nursing problems, as well as problem-solving, which is an activity inherently logical in nature. Abdellah 's theory identifies ten steps to identify the patient 's problem and 11 nursing skills used to develop a treatment typology. Faye Glenn Abdellah’s Theory 21 Nursing Questions The twenty-one nursing problems fall into three categories: physical, sociological, and emotional needs of patients; types of interpersonal relationships between the patient and nurse; and common elements of patient care.
Philosophy of Nursing Introduction Nursing is a discipline that is guided by philosophical orientations that create a base for the development of nursing theories that translate into clinical practice. McEwen and Wills (2014) state, “rather than focus on solving problems or answering questions related to that discipline, the philosophy of a discipline studies the concepts that structure the thought process of that discipline with the intent of recognizing and revealing foundations and presuppositions” (p. 6). Nursing philosophy embodies knowledge acquisition and cultivates professionalism within the profession. Through philosophy, nurses have gained knowledge and have discovered the true value of nursing practice. The purpose of this paper is to describe how nursing’s philosophical foundations influence nursing practice and my personal philosophy.
Further, the loose guidelines given are a strength. Both of these allowed the participants to act fairly naturally and to evolve naturally. A limitation of the study was the duration of time it was conducted over. In a real world scenario where longevity existed, the participants must find ways to cope and their attitudes evolve further, therefor determining actions perhaps not seen in such a short study. If the study were to be conducted again, I think it can be improved and I would tip the researchers by seeking a wider variety of participants in terms of their background, socio-economic status and historical experiences.
Validation of accuracy is very important to a study suchas this, so more studies should be performed and reviewed in the same way this articlewas done. The findings of the team seem to make sense in how a higher number oflicensed staff would result in a higher quality of care, so it should be an easy topic tofollow up on using national databases and informational documents. I like the
Our current health care culture has defined the aspect of compassion in relation to practice as an unfeasible ideal rather than a staple of practice. “The Francis report identified compassion as the key missing component in health care delivery that enabled the increased morbidity and mortality at the Stafford Hospital. It highlighted the real dangers to patient safety when compassion was found lacking” (Francis 2013). Merely acknowledging that nursing practice should embody compassion is not enough, we must exemplify compassion to our patients through our communication, care and attitudes at work. A nurse’s occupation is not only to provide care for their patients physically but also mentally.
It is essential to me to be a patient advocate, provider, teacher, manager, and leader because I think that we as nurses should deliver the highest quality nursing care in order to accomplish excellence in patient 's outcomes. To me nursing is about compassion and trying to understand human beings on all emotional, physical, and scientific levels. As a professional nurse, I feel a personal commitment toward life-long learning, through formal education and hands-on experience to better myself and my nursing knowledge. Of all the things that make up nursing, nobody can truly understand or know what it means to be a nurse until they have actually lived it. The first thing that comes to mind when someone asks me why I want to be a nurse is because I just love to take care of people.
According to the AARP article on the future of nursing; transforming health care, Susan Reinhard and Susan Hassmiller, wrote that for both now and future needs, registered professional nurses and other health professionals must be allowed to practice to the full level of their education and training. They suggested that advanced practice registered professional nurses (APRNs); such as nurse practitioners and midwives can be used to use to solve issues of primary care shortage so that the physicians may be free to take care of more complex medical issues that requires higher medical expertise. Another report by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development working paper in 2010, says that many countries are reviewing better ways to improve the health delivery system by reviewing the roles of nurses and other health care professionals. According to the conclusion of that report, developing new and more advanced roles for nurses might improve access to care and may even cut down cost. (AARP
The venue will be progressive care unit and the medical-surgical unit since both units come under same Nursing director and education nurse. Acceptance from the leadership team and main stakeholders is important to begin the project. This author will discuss about the importance DVT prevention and problems to follow to DVT protocol with the nursing director. This author will use the evidence from the literature reviews to convince how important to prevent this never event. With the support of nursing director, this author can discuss the problems and solutions with management team, finance department, risk managers, quality care team and the nursing staff to obtain adequate support and understanding of the project.
Conversely, the Francis report (2012) declared that nurses need access to precise, comparable and timely information to improve practice. The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) (2015) guidelines state that it is vital that nurses take charge of their own research to ensure use of current best evidence in practice, and developing this research will promote person centred care (McCormack 2003). However, few nurses have actual experience in conducting a research study in the clinical setting (Squires et al. 2011). To enable the critique of this qualitative paper by Paul Canning, the Caldwell framework will be used, although other frameworks will be also be accessed throughout (Appendix 1).
Professionalism includes standards of knowledge which is theoretical, practical and clinical. Nurses should be able to share their knowledge with colleagues, client and family enhance their skills to improve quality care and health goals. Nurses should be open-minded and have a desire to learn a new skill, not just to show off; one of the episodes, where the nurse doesn’t have any clue of how to start the IV pump clearly, explains how the media depicts nurses as unskilled professionals in their scope of practice. I feel that nurses should use legislation, standards of practice and code of ethics to practice this profession. After the victory signing up the petition, it seems that still uncertainty of the true image of how nurses are described in the media.
This will allow them to ensure the new IT tool is solving the problems they intended, without having any outside repercussions. A sensitivity analysis would also work well, if the software came with usage points (like speed of process, accuracy, etc.) The IT staff would be able to pug in how much time was actually being saved, the accuracy of the
