Commonly used terms, anticipatory grief and pre-death grief, were inconsistently defined and interchangeably used in literature. However, it is necessary to clarify the unique meaning of anticipatory grief in the nursing to provide caregivers with better quality of care. Objectives. This review paper is to further examine the definition of anticipatory grief in the nursing discipline by comparing the meanings from other disciplines for the development of nursing practice and science. Data sources.
This paper addresses two articles, Evidence-based approaches to breaking down language barriers by Allison Squires and Rapid response teams: What’s the latest? by Shirley A. Jackson. The first article discusses how language creates a barrier between nurses and patients and how to possibly overcome these barriers. Squires talk about how the barriers affect patient care negatively and the consequences of miscommunication such as re-admissions and non-adherence to medication regimen. On the other hand, the latter article discusses about rapid response teams (RRTs) and their roles and well as challenges they have to face while delivering care.
But this work on ideas and policy leaves two questions unanswered. First, why does failure sometimes not cause changes in policy? In some cases, policy after failure drifts in the sense that it lacks coherent intellectual links between policy tools and desired outcomes. This drift can take the form of continuing to implement failed policies or altering the selection and settings of policy tools in cosmetic or contradictory ways that do not address the sources of failure. For example, every informed observer has concluded that the U.S. health care system fails to achieve important objectives, but significant policy change in this area has proven impossible to achieve despite the fact that countless serious reform proposals have circulated for years.
The clinical guidelines and literature for extensive fall prevention approach provides an in depth analysis that was difficult to understand clinical challenges of fall prevention. By using Roper et al (2000) model helps the healthcare professionals in identifying and assessing assess the individual requirement and what sort of on-going support is needed for improving. I believe that the nursing process environment must be based on at least one nursing model to properly examine and analyse the case
7). Another important red flag in her investigation is if the memory suddenly resurfaces (Bryce, 2017). This is called “repressed memory”, a concept invented by Sigmund Freud, which Julia does not really trust as it is not scientifically proven: "There are still psychoanalytic schools saying repression is something we need to look for. So we've got universities teaching this nonsense to people" (Bryce, 2017, para.
This uncertainty is reflected in its absence from the diagnostic nomenclature/terminology DSM-IV and DSM-V. The clinical concept of psychopathy was included in early versions of APA’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, but is now incorporated to the diagnostic manuals under D/APD (WHO, 1994, and APA, 1994, respectively). Because of a multidisciplinary approach, researchers have yet to agree on a concept that is vernacular. Forensic mental health is inclusive in its purpose it is difficult to develop a consensus on fundamental, this consensus being a hallmark at science (Duggan,
Psychological Effects of Grief, development plays an important role in the processing of loss. This text explains many of the psychological aspects of grief and loss at each development on the understanding of sudden death. The motivation for this text is to integrate understandings of sudden loss with knowledge of human development over the life course. This aspect of grief has not received the attention it deserves. Sudden loss stimulates an acute sense of vulnerability and subsequent hypervigilance just as trauma does (Lopez Levers, 2012).
The relative absence of recent data reflects the lack of enthusiasm for the use of this imaging modality for VAD in present day. More recent studies suggest that ultrasound is not necessary for the diagnosis of VAD but may offer more information on the possible development of stroke16. These studies suggest that ultrasound could be put to better use in a follow-up scenario – monitoring progress and recanalization. With regard to the of the pitfalls of ultrasound diagnosis of VAD, investigators found that ultrasonography is made difficult by the course of the VA as it becomes invisible to ultrasound as through the foramen transversarium14 – making it impossible to effectively image the whole course of the VA. VAD has been seen to affect all sections of the VA11-15. However, wall abnormalities in some sections of the VA are seldom depicted on ultrasound.
Nursing interventions and rationales include: assess influence of cultural beliefs, norms, values and client’s ability to modify behavior; assess the effect of fatalism on a client’s ability to modify behavior; clarity culturally related health beliefs and practices; provide culturally targeted education and health care services (Ackley & Ladwig, 2014, pp. 413–414). Ideally nurse would possess certain level of knowledge about the patient culture or asked the coworkers to assist. On the other hand it would be impossible to posses knowledge about every culture and its customs. Nurse should explain details of procedures or necessary changes that would bring positive healthy results, withhold the judgement and attempt to understand the patient
As mentioned by the researchers in this study, the lack of resources - time, facilitates, and staff might be another reason contributed to the declined usage of creative activities in the occupational therapy treatment (Müllersdorf, p. 373). The short hospital stays and limited health insurance coverage might be another reason that pushes occupational therapy practitioners "towards...rapid solutions" and restricted them from incorporating creative activities to the treatment plan (Müllersdorf, p.
This being said, it must be taken into consideration that The Return of Martin Guerre uses little concrete factual evidence to support all of Davis’ claims. She may incorporated bias into her explanations for the actions of Bertrande, and she has no way of knowing for certain the thought processes and ideas of de Rols. Davis often makes statements that seem as if she is certain of the notions of Bertrande, using words such as “must have”, and statements such as these should be taken extremely lightly. If she wishes to psychologically analyze Bertrande she should ensure that she uses language that makes it apparent that there is no record of what Bertrande de Rols knew or desired. Davis sheds a new light upon the events of the Martin Guerre mystery and how du Tilh possibly got away with his charade, but her claims should not be considered historical fact.
Nurses that practice in telemedicine not only have to have state and national license to practice telemedicine, but they also need to have liability coverage (Kepler and McGinty, 2009). Risks in telemedicine comes with misdiagnosis from not being able to visualize the problem via a television screen, or computer monitor. Face-to-face contact does reduce risk of misdiagnosis compared to telemedicine, but telemedicine practice is close. Kepler and McGinty state that providers who practice in telemedicine need to consider government liability, professional liability, and alternative risk vehicles. The nurse needs to be aware of the cost and potential harm of liability coverage.
