Volunteering for leadership positions can improve a variety of transferable skills, such as communication, management, and leadership skills. As an anesthesiologist, you will have to manage an anesthesia team of assistants and nurses. Being the group leader enables you to make decisions and assign roles based on a member’s strength and weakness. For instance, if a nurse wasn’t accurate in converting measurements, but had hospitality skills. A group leader would assess their skills and determine that the best role for that person would be to monitor and take care of the patient.
As a pharmacist student, I am able to review the patient’s clinical notes and medications list to make sure that nothing “falls through the cracks.” I can make sure that the medications are dosed correctly because often in the ICU patients are on antibiotics that need to renally dosed based on the patient’s renal function. After reviewing the patients information, I am able to make recommendations to the other healthcare professionals. In my future pharmacy practice, I think it is important for pharmacist to have an inter-professional collaboration with physician and nurse practitioners. In a retail setting, we are mostly communicating with physician and nurse practitioners because they are the ones writing the prescriptions. In the retail pharmacy, pharmacist often times needs to collaborate with physicians if a medication is not covered to find alternative medications for the patient.
1. The metaparadigm of nursing illustrates the collective worldview of the shared concepts of the discipline, which are: the person, environment, health and nursing (1). The nursing metaparadigm is the framework for many nursing theories, values, and theoretical models, which help guide an advanced practice nurse in selecting appropriate interventions established by their chosen conceptual model. A conceptual model or advanced practice nursing theory provides an advanced practice nurse a logical structural model to follow, which is aligned with the discipline’s expectations. Advanced education prepares advanced practice nurses to employ a superior degree of clinical, research based and theoretical knowledge (2).
The Purpose of The Theory The purpose of Henderson’s theory is to give the principles that help construct practice and to generate further nursing knowledge. Considering doing so, it helps nurses to understand their purpose and role in nursing in the healthcare setting. Henderson believes that the unique function of the nurse is to help the person sick or well, in the performance of those activities contributing to health or its recovery (to a peaceful death) that he would do unaided if he had the strength, will or knowledge. In doing so will help him gain independence as quickly as possible (Burggraf, 2012). The Scope or Level of theory The scope or level of theory used by Henderson was a grand theory.
I will summarize each outcome for the Nursing Informatics specialty. For the intent of this paper I will use outcome and competency interchangeably. The first outcome means the ability to gather healthcare information across the continuum of care; combine and utilize the information gathered to develop a process. Finally execution of that process to evaluate its ability to improve the quality of the healthcare environment. Healthcare managers are constantly assessing patients and collecting information.
I learn three things after completing the PHM-314 class: I will hold and promote changes that increase patient center care. I will use my knowledge, ability, experience and importance to organize the next group of peer pharmacist. I will improve my professional knowledge and proficiency. Based on my observation and an experience, I learned that hospital setting is something I am truly interested in and for this reason I joined PSSNY organization to learn more about hospital research program or clinical base information. I surprised to learn two things: • Pharmacist play major role in multidisciplinary health care system.
Lewis, Stephens, and Ciak (2016) confirmed that the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) initiative was developed to determine competencies for nursing students based upon Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommendations with the main goal of QSEN is to establish a cultural change toward quality and safety. According to QSEN (2014), addresses the challenge of preparing future nurses with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes (KSAs) are essential components of improving the quality and safety of the healthcare systems. Furthermore, the QSEN six competencies for nursing that targets the KSA to guarantee future graduates to develop competencies in patient-centered care, teamwork and collaboration, evidence-based practice, quality improvement,
I am able to encourage and motivate patients who are suffering from strokes, heart attacks, brain tumors, cancer and various physical and emotional ailments. Occupational therapy gives me the opportunity to be creative and make a difference in someone’s life. Whether it be by helping someone sit at the edge of the bed while battling cancer, grasp a cup to drink from, don a shirt one handed, transferring out of bed after surgery, or helping someone take their first steps after suffering from a stroke. I was able to see how much of an impact I had on their recovery and how much more I could if I furthered my education. After all this exposure my coworkers and family encouraged me to apply myself and not only did I go back to school but I excelled in my courses.
The component of critical incident learning helps CNS and APN provide risk control process into practice and quality management principle to control quality services and managing incident from risk system , in fact, CNS and APN would consider quality problems adoption of critical thinking process and employing and incident learning or reflective learning model to improve the nursing practice for long terms organizational quality improvement. Critical incident learning may work tremendously when the component of identifying , response, reporting and investigating, recalling incident, making recommendation , communicating and implementing corrective actions take
