While mammograms are one of the best known tools for early detection of breast cancer, the new guidelines say doctors no longer need to do breast exams during women 's checkups. Dr. Michelle Sahinler, a Grace Health System gynecologist, says women should do a breast self-exam monthly, and their doctor should still do a yearly exam. “I’ve detected a lump in the last year in a patient who ended up having breast cancer,” she says.
I have recently interviewed my grandmother, she is the mother of my father her name is Ngawiki Cooper. I asked her what was the first thing that she noticed differently about herself? She responded, Well i was 69 years old when i first notice a change in my breast, then I was advised to by my partner to go to the next screening, and it wasn 't until my breast got very painful till i took his advice, by that time i was 70 years old and i was too late the cancer had already speared into both my breast. I then asked her why she didn 't get her screening earlier when she first notices difference in her breast, and why didn 't she take her partner 's advice when it was he asked her? She replied, Because i didn 't think it was as serious as it ended up to be, I 'm old i get different kinds of pain throughout my whole body and unfortunately i class the pain in my breast as a passing pain where i thought i would never get it
This makes it hard to know when you first became infected. Due to this rising threat and issue, scientists from Cleveland Clinics improvised a new medical innovation which may help women get rid of and be protected against the chance of developing cervical cancers. This is the self-administered HPV Tests. However, the Institute for Quality and Efficiency in Health Care ( IQWiG, Germany) analyzed studies that looked into the benefits of HPV tests in cervical cancer screening. They were particularly interested in whether HPV tests can help to detect major changes in mucous membrane cells (called high-grade dysplasia) earlier, whether this leads to an improvement in treatment and whether fewer women get cervical cancer and die as a result.
Appendix NCLEX Questions The following two alternate format NCLEX questions were created related to the case study information and focus on the nursing responsibilities prior to blood administration and the signs/symptoms of acute hemolytic transfusion reactions. NCLEX Question #1 The RN on day shift is looking after Anita, a 93-year-old female patient in with an upper GI bleed. Anita’s latest lab results show an Hgb of 62 g/L. The registered nurse notifies the physician, who then orders for Anita to receive 1 unit of packed red blood cells (PRBCs). What are some of the nursing responsibilities before administering the ordered PRBCs?
Purpose: Effective vaccination is now available to prevent human papillomavirus (HPV), the most common sexually transmitted infection and cause of cervical cancer. This study aimed to estimate the prevalence of HPV vaccination intentions among mothers of daughters with and without a history of childhood cancer, and young adult female cancer survivors, in addition to identifying the factors associated with HPV vaccination intentions. Methods: Maternal caregivers of vaccine naïve females aged 9-17 years with/without a history of childhood cancer (n = 155; daughter Mage = 12.70 years, SD = 2.65; n = 46; daughter Mage = 12.41 years, SD = 2.30, respectively) in addition to young adult vaccine naïve females aged 18-26 with/without a history of childhood cancer (n = 70; Mage = 21.6 years, SD = 2.68; n = 53; Mage = 20.7 years, SD = 2.45, respectively ) completed surveys querying HPV vaccination intentions along with
I taught the patient that the first three days, she will see rubra that is red drainage and from day three to the eleventh day, she would see light pink to brown tinged blood and from day eleven, she would see white or cream like discharge and I also informed her to notify the healthcare provider immediately if the color changes from white to red. The use of warm water and squirt bottle was also stressed to the patient and I also advised her to wipe from front to back to prevent herself from getting infections. During the postpartum period 50% to 70% of women experience postpartum blues which are normal and
Kerr (2002), reports that if there is a structured handover method the quality of care is promoted and nurses will have a full understanding and knowledge about the patients. Glen (1998) also discussed the importance of having a structured handover process stating that it will lead to an development in the quality of care delivered (K. Chung, 2011). The literature review reveals bedside theme emerged from nursing handover. The current research available may not be substantial but it does indicate support from the large amount of anecdotal evidence which claims that nursing bedside handover is an effective form of handover process. Literature shows that there are paybacks in transporting out bedside handover, it proposes that bedside handover helps to put up associations amid nurses and patients’ and it also amplified patient’s satisfaction.
The fact is we want to get sick people better; it is in a nurse’s nature to care for the well-being of each patient. We study for hours in nursing school to be the best nurses we can be so that we can learn to properly assess and provide treatment. What every nurse must always remember is that patients have rights. It is important to get a patients informed consent and to be sure that they understand the procedure they are about to undergo, why they need the treatment, the risks involved, and the ramifications behind the decision to give their consent. When a patient does not fully comprehend a procedure, how can we as nurses expect them to readily agree to medical interventions blindly?
This system that improved communication between nurses and the rotating medical residents, resulting in improving patient care. Democratic leadership also known as participative leaders, this style encourages participation from everyone but she has the final say in the end decision. Her democratic leadership style allowed more nurses to have a voice in their roles. This style of leadership can show the staff under her supervision feel that their opinions are heard, build morale in themselves and may reduce the amount of workplace bullying and disruptive behaviour. However, this approach takes more time and there can be endless meetings.
The Nursing and Midwifery Council Code (2015) is to always provide the best possible service related to the best available evidence that is also in line with the patient’s preferences. It’s important to use evidence based practices in nursing because it creates solutions to the patient’s needs, it improves the overall care of the patients, reduces harm and helps support nurse’s actions and clinical judgments. Sackett (2000) says that evidence based practice is looking at the best evidence along with using your clinic expertise in helping you to make a decision about the patient’s individuals care. Outline the process undertaken when searching for credible and relevant evidence to support Part 2 of the workbook.

Assess how multi-disciplinary working can improve the provision of health services. Case study 2 Claire is a 47 year old single mother of three children aged 12, 9, and 7. She has cervical cancer, which is now at stage 3. Multi-disciplinary strategy If Claire has a cervical stage 3 cancer, she will need a multi-disciplinary strategy to help her stage of treatment and operation. Claire will need specialist doctors and nurses to help her operation when the tumour reaches the lower third of the vagina.
