Cultural baggage attributes to propensity by one person to place his or her culture, a way of thinking and behavior above all others (Andrews & Boyle, 2016). It would be important for nurses to respect the patient’s view of things, although it might not be correct or just plain different. While it is hard to disregard the background that each nurse is coming from, the patience and attempt to understand would assist in the proper assessment. From personal experience, I recall a patient coming from a different country, who did want to deal and even talk to the nursing staff, and demanded to see the physician with every concern. Ethnocentrism is a view of a group of people placing themselves in a center and making themselves superior to others, while all other groups of people excluded from it (Andrews & Boyle, 2016).
Trust relationship is a kind of interactive process that requires care and concern (Chin, 2001). In this incident, if I told any incorrect information to my patient, she would start to suspect whether I am a medical student or not and start not to believe me. Hence, our relationship would be destroyed. It is important for us to stand from patients’ point of view to think about their thought and ensure the information shared must be accurate before starting any conversation with the
Role confusion on the part of the participants/patients. Clear language and boundaries must be defined; 4. Lack of trust from the patient. The healthcare team/researchers must create rapport to enhance trust. Informed consent decision should uphold the principles of maximizing benefits and minimizing possible harm to the participants/patients by boosting the ethics of beneficence and nonmaleficence.
Nonverbal communication is used to express and communicate thoughts, feelings and emotions, to establish and maintain relationships and to influence others. It conveys messages that spoken words alone most often do not. In medical practice, it is very imperative in initiating and sustaining the healthcare professional (HCP) - client relationship and has the capacity to affect the clients adherence to treatment. Healthcare professional’s nonverbal behavior influences the clients nonverbal behavior. Researchers say that patients tend to mirror affiliative behaviors in the physician (e.g.
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
How might the ANA code of ethics and the Nurse Practice Act help to guide Josepha? The legal and ethical issue that Josepha has to use is. He has to know how to discuss the issue he has with the higher or manager of the head nurse. It is good to communicate the issue you have with the managers instead of felling bad thing about them. As I read the “Team STEPPS makes strides for better communication”, some of the tools like; (SBARQ) is used in many organizations, especially during patient hand-offs.
The ideal patient-doctor relationship considers the needs, desires, awareness, and insight of the patient, as well as the physician. • Physicians are to influence and lead their patients by example. • Illness, discomfort, pain, and the dying process are learning opportunities for both the patient and the physician. It cannot be avoided and should be taken in stride instead to learn more about one’s whole being and life approach. • Physicians and experts are supposed to encourage their patients to evoke the healing power of love, hope, humor, and enthusiasm to release the toxic consequences of hostility, shame, greed, depression, and prolonged fear, anger, and grief.
The radiographer needs to communicate with the patient in order to make them comfortable and aware with what is going to happen during the examination. Communication between radiographers and the patients is significant for a number of reasons that will be discussed further on. Albert Mehrabian’s communication theory suggests that when communicating, seven percent happens through spoken words, thirty eight percent is shown through tone of voice and fifty five percent is show by general body language (The British Library. 2018). This suggests that during procedures the radiographers have to ensure that they behave in the correct way as patients will be able to read their body language.
Of course, the healthcare professional must work within their Scope of Practice and ensure that they are comfortable and capable of administering the medication. It is essential that information such as allergies, morbidities and other medication, that the patient is already on, are obtained, following the selection of route, dose, time and drug. Prescribing involves transferring patient information plan with the nurse and the patient themselves, and providing accurate documentation of same. Illegible documentation, incorrect computerised data entry and mathematical error with drug calculations contribute to prescription errors, which in turn, leads to errors in the administering and monitoring sectors (Prot, 2005). Administration is when a nurse gives a ready to use form of medication where calculations, labelling, mixing and preparing may be involved (Healthline, 2015).
The primary reason of listing is to obtain oral messages from others. After acquiring the oral message then accordingly communication is expected. If health care providers give proper attention then psychodynamic information given by others can be understandable to them. By psychodynamic communication the client may be communicating emotional and relational messages of need and
