Thus, the obstetrician manager specialist influences nursing through close effective communication. Additionally, it is the obstetrician manager’s responsibility to support members with medication review to facilitate patient’s safety. Cultural factors play a key role for the effective health care service. Moreover, the obstetrician manager practice is focus on improving patient’s health by assisting them. It is worth noting that effective and positive practice depends on the intercommunion between patient, environment and manager.
According to Rogers patients can participate knowing the change process to its capacity. The characteristics basically, describes of the life processes of the patient are: Energy field, openness, pattern and dimensionality. This model, the nurses role is to serve people. Rogers also includes, Therapeutic touch, humour, music, mediation, imagery and color use.

“She envisioned what nursing could be and should be and set about bringing this vision to fruition. She created a model of nursing that persists to this day in the form of honor and respectability associated with nurses, highly structured nursing education, and holistic patient care approaches. She was ahead of her time, engaging in research and effecting sweeping policy changes when women were heavily discouraged from such endeavors.” She was a leader and reformer who led the way for the development of science based practice in the 21st century. “If we were to derive one simple lesson from Nightingale’s life and work, it would come from this single unifying thread that society has a big responsibility for the health of all its members.” Nursing has never been simple or easy, nor is serving as a patient advocate. However, it is important to include advocacy as a part of nursing.
Holistic care includes caring for an individual as a whole by assessing their physical, psychological, spiritual, social and cultural needs and providing care in an environment which supports this philosophy (Price, 2006). Person-centred care not only involves the patient but also includes meeting the needs of the family and/or carers of the patient and involving other members of the multi-disciplinary team. The Nursing and Midwifery Council’s (NMC) (2008) Code corresponds with Price (2006) by mentioning that nurses must treat people as individuals and respond to their concerns and preferences, guaranteeing that
In this section, I will start to talk about the nurse practice act and how it improves patient care around the world. The Nurse Practice Act is laws that define responsibilities of the nurse and the scope of practice within their range. The range of activities and services as well as the qualifications for practice. The act describes what constitutes unprofessional conduct of misconduct and investigation and the disciplinary procedures for complaints filed against a nurse. These acts are in place to protect patients and families from harm as a result of unsafe or incompetent practices of unqualified nurses.
The model tells nurses what’s important and relevant when delivering individualised care by specialising and the right guidance suiting the needs of the patient. It helps devise, deliver and monitor care by means of format and structure which reassures nurses. ( Barrett, et al .2012). This is used to guide nurses with deliverer and the design of the care plan documentation, in order to ensure that all aspects of an individual’s life are integrated into effective care plan of care. Assessing patients under activities of daily living can help nurses picture a patient’s everyday life style and later making them aware of simple but important things such as management of fluids, diet restrictions etc.
Importance of nurses A nurse is a health care professional who is engaged in the practice of nursing. Nurses are men and women who are responsible (along with other health care professionals) for the treatment, safety and recovery of acutely or chronically ill or injured people, health maintenance of the healthy, and treatment of life-threatening emergencies in a wide range of health care settings. Nurses may also be involved in medical and nursing research and perform a wide range of non-clinical functions necessary to the delivery of health care. Nurses develop a plan of care, sometimes working collaboratively with physicians, therapists, the patient, the patient 's family and other team members. In the U.S. (and increasingly the United Kingdom), advanced practice nurses, such as clinical nurse specialists and nurse practitioners, diagnose health problems and prescribe medications and other therapies.
To simply put it, the overall health of a person may be determined by their environment, which nurses play an important role in. The nursing metaparadigm is integrated with other metaparadigms to approach patient care the most therapeutic way. Going back again to the terminal ill patient, I can say that nurses use their own values, beliefs, and philosophies to help the patient. The one thing I can definitively conclude is the nursing metaparadigm is unique for each individual nurse as noted by the multiple theorists presented within the principles of nursing textbook. In my opinion, nursing is a respectable profession which focuses on the care of a whole person, including all their subsystems, to provide quality care.
It is created through analysis of research and construction of concepts and theories (Busso, Poles, & Monteiro da Cruz, 2014). Concept analysis serve a purpose within theory development as it represents continuation of knowledge in nursing profession. When theories and concepts are developed, it must be practiced in a clinical setting to validate research. The caring concept applies to Jean Watson’s Theory of Human Caring as it creates an environment for healing, bonding, and improving patient outcomes. The concept of caring depicts the attitude of the nurse and the inclination given to meet the needs of the patient from emotional or physical standpoints (Emerson, 2017).
EFFECTIVE COORDINATION OF ACTIVITIES OF THE HOSPITAL TO IMPROVE PATIENT’S CARE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE CONCEPT Coordination is one of the management functions and it is defined by Merriam Webster dictionary as the process of organizing people or groups so that they work together properly and well. It could also be defined as the process of organizing the various elements of a complex whole to function accurately and efficiently. Coordination in any organization is very vital as organization and also helps to maintain and ensure efficient operations in every department through effective communication and supervision. Any organization without co-ordination amounts to just an experience which may or may not impact positively on the staff, it is important
