Intended Audience My audience for this informative speech will be for both new and experienced nurses working on any hospital floor that has regularly scheduled shift handoff reports. As this is a rather specific group, and terminology could be dependent to the type of care that is being done on a particular unit, a broader audience would be less appropriate. Bedside nursing experience will also be a large factor, as the information presented will be used primarily to reinforce and help guide already learned and used practices. The topic will be significant to help improve communication amongst clinical staff members by providing tools and solutions to help make a more concise, informative shift change report to prevent a lack of pertinent
This includes maintaining eye contact with the patient showing you are concentrating, and ensuring your body language is open showing that you are listening to the patient’s concerns or worries. Distractions must also be avoided during a conversation. This strengthens the nurse-patient relationship and helps to maintain patient dignity at all times. I understand how important nursing standards contribute to effective and quality care, and how nurses are required to put patients at the centre of their care. (RCN, 2018).
Effective communication is one of the most fundamental tools of the nursing practice. Communication involves two parties the conveyor and the recipient, in which information is exchanged through personal and interpersonal mediums (verbal and non-verbal forms), allowing the message conveyed to be received and understood. Ultimately effective communication in healthcare reduces barriers constructed by language and cultural differences etc, creating a safe environment for the client in which they can actively participate in positive health-related behaviours. This explanatory synthesis will explore the concept of self- awareness in relation to therapeutic communication and how it significantly influences nurse-client rapports. It will also
Care provided this way would support healing, enhance patient experience and lead to faster discharge. Nursing from my experience, are culturally sensitive and adjusted accordingly to a variety of requests from patients and accommodated most of them. Nursing staff today works with a diverse population and it is important to stay professional and culturally sensitive. Nurses should assess their own knowledge, feelings and values when providing care for patients from different backgrounds. It also important to know about different cultures and increase personal cultural awareness (Leishman, 2004).
Firstly it will help the nurse to be aware of the way in which the patient belief and cultural practice can provide resources of their experience with illness, suffering, and death, Aids nurses to understand and respect the diversity that is often present in the nurse to patient ratio, also helps to strengthened the Nurse/ Patient relationship in understanding their cultural background DIFFERENT THEORIES USED IN NURSING CONT’D ROSEMARIE RIZZO PARSE DIFFERENT THEORIES USED IN NURSING CONT’D The main objective in Parse’s Theory, allows each individual to work together with the internal and the external environment. Each individual is unique that creates patterns, (habits, coping behaviors) within themselves and the environment they live in. The nurses role is to be actively present to listen , when patients needed to voice their concerns and fears. This theory states that the individual, and the main objective is caring and promoting wellness, than illness. According to Parse, Health is a process of being a unique person who had experience.
Empowerment became institutionalised within the “new public health” that called for individuals to build control over their own wellbeing and to increase control over their own health. Empowerment Strengthening subsequently turned into an idea integral to empowerment and empowerment training among medical professionals and their subsequent teams. Wellbeing advancement, group brain science and wellbeing training. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines health promotion as a process of enabling people to increase control over and to improve their health (WHO, 1986). Nurse need to know about health promotion because they need to know what advice is good to give the patient, such as having an interaction with a patient that has diabetes and advising them of the importance of testing their blood sugars and how to control their diabetic diet.
Nurses can use the process, of diverse assessment, to gather information that identifies what is culturally important to the patient. Through anticipatory planning, the competent nurse can effectively work within the cultural context of an individual’s specific needs. This process can help the nurse to better understand, plan, and evaluate towards the overall health and wellness of the patient. Considerations such as lack of understanding, gaps in provisions of health insurance, lack of culturally sensitive care, and misunderstanding of cultural norms and values are all barriers that patients face routinely. Therefore, to help dissolve some of these challenges, community health promotion and maintenance programs can be researched, planned, and built to provide cultural competent care for a whole community (Andrews & Boyle,
As such, safety, delegation, and quality of care are dependent on one another. In other words, effective teamwork among the nursing staff directly impacts overall employee satisfaction and staff morale which influence patient outcomes. What is Team Nursing? A nursing team usually consists of registered nurses, licensed practical nurses (LPNs), unlicensed assistive personnel (UAP), and unit secretaries (USs). When functioning at its best, this model helps nurses provide optimal and attentive care.
Nursing process provides a framework for clinical decision-making, which helps to guide care and promote critical thinking. Improvements patients participation in care by promoting patient autonomy and individualized care. ADPIE is an acronym that is used to help nurses remember the steps in order: Assessment, Diagnosis, Planning, Implementation, and Evaluation. In the assessment phase, nurses collect subjective and objective data about the patient in a systematic way through observations, interview questions, and physical examinations. Data is collected, organized, verified, and recorded.
(Jaana, Ward, Pare & Sicotte, 2006) International council of nurses describes nursing as an autonomous and collaborative care of individuals by prevention of illness, facilitation of healing, protection, promotion and optimization of health and abilities. Not only treating patients, helping doctors diagnosing patients and paperwork is all what nurses are supposed to do but offering advice and emotional support to patients is also a part of nurses’ job. Nurses do need continuous training and education: • To be highly skilled in consistently changing
