CBPR research is designed to broadly look at the impact of research on the society and additionally it measures the perceptions and views of the community members. CBPR is an important approach while addressing health disparities and unconscious bias because people from different race, ethnicity, religion and culture can take part in it and share their knowledge, views and barriers the research. This will also help us as researchers to design the study accordingly to improvise screening by keeping suggestions and barriers in mind. When addressing health disparities, CBPR also helps to build a trust relationship directly with people of community taking part in the study and the researchers which is very delicate part of a
Therefore bridging this gap and the movement towards uniform communication is highly warranted in prevention of adverse effects among unit handoff
Advocating for the creation and adaptation of policies to insure honesty, quality and access is part of the policy competencies (Thomas et al., 2011). By utilizing the tools in the Adaption Model, nurse practitioners can adapt health care policy across disciplines, and assess the impact globalization will have on the creation of policy. Adaptability allows for the creation of policies for a variety of patients. There are great variations in ethnicity, religion, environmental factors and rituals that must be accounted for when creating health care policy. The ability to adapt knowledge and ideas into ethical policies and practice contributes to the creation of successful and quality healthcare (Current Nursing,
An important part of nursing is to integrate health and disease prevention into the lives of individuals. As nurses, we are often the frontline people who interact with patient and the community. It is our responsibility to strategize ways to promote being health, preventions of diseases and remaining safe. The main and probably most important way to do this is by educating and teaching.
For this particular discrepancy those choosing exemption puts others in the community as well as hospitalized patients at risk. For us this ethical principle is better addressed if nurses advocate vaccination rather than dismiss it. Fidelity can be described as being truthful, fair, and loyal and advocate for our patients (American Nurses Association). The best way this principle is relatable to the topic is by educating our patients and the community about vaccinations. With the media being so influential people tend to use it as their source for vital information.
The concept of health care needs includes physical, psychospiritual, social, and environmental needs that arise for patients in stressful health care situations. The concept of nursing interventions outlines nursing actions that promote comfort care. The concept of the intervening variables described as factors that influence recipient’s perception of comfort and affect outcomes. The concept of comfort defined as the immediate result of nursing interventions. Health seeking behaviors concept defined as “patient actions, which serve as predictors or indicators of improved health, categorized as internal (e.g., healing, immune function), external (e.g., functional status, a perception of health), or as a peaceful death” (Kolcaba, 2001, p.91).
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.
Its main core is the selection of the best evidence based approaches of dealing with the SSIs and grouping them into a list that can be effectively implemented by nurses. The use of intervention processes or pathways in healthcare is effective in promoting compliance since it promotes integration of practices and procedures (Lutfiyya, et al. 2012). The selected surgical EBP interventions already implemented include comprehensive patient profiling (consideration of the urgency, patient conditions, and other risks to SSIs), use of prophylactic antibiotics, appropriate skin care (antiseptic skin preparation and hair clipping), and maintenance of perioperative temperature. My proposed quality improvement compliance checklist will be adapted to all surgical standards and areas of needed improvement. Individual nurses will complete the checklist monthly to be compared to quality data.
I look forward to learning skills that help them to handle adequately complex challenges such as working within tight budgets, initiating health care policy change to eliminate health disparities, and improving health care outcomes at all levels of care. As a DNP, I will practice health promotion, health maintenance, and prevention in the facilities where I work. DNP provided me with the knowledge of where to seek to fund when carrying out a research project from The National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) and the National Institute of Health (NIH). These institutes work together to improve minority health and eliminate health disparities through scientific research that is federally funded. (AANC,
First, we are clinicians to which these patients seek for our expertise to address their health problems. Secondly, we are diagnosticians whereby we seek the underlying causes of our patient’s health issues. Third, we are educators to which we help our patients cope and understand their health conditions. And lastly, we aspire to be the catalyst for a positive change in our patient’s concept of wellness and health. And truly, when we achieve our roles as catalysts for change for our patients we exude the transformative power of physical
Assessing risks, minimizing errors and damages can be a tough job, but with the help of a quality manager. Sharing plans, tasks, and hopes for the future will make it is easier to focus on what is best for the longevity of a healthcare
Tracking of the health promotion implementation and evaluating its effectiveness is critical for the public health nurse. Assessing the data from the population that was affected with the norovirus outbreak and investigating whether the health promotion practices lessened the changes or prevented others in the communities from getting sick would mean that the goal and mission was met. Overtime, evaluation of the statistics could inform the public health nurse
A vital part of the nursing profession is nursing research. Clinical questions for specific patient problems are identified so that healthcare providers can find clinically relevant information using Internet search engines and databases (Higgins & Green, 2009). The main principle of nursing research is to produce new knowledge. The primary function of evidence based practice is to make evaluations about patient care built around the most current and best evidence that was collected by a systematic problem solving method. This paper will discuss hypothyroidism in pregnant women, and the risk fact of miscarriage during the first trimester of pregnancy.
Authors in this article asserted the position of American Nurses Association (ANA) in addressing disparities in the health care system. Because there is a social contract between the nursing profession and society, nurses continue to strive to fit the profession in meeting the public health care needs. Aware of the social change and multi-cultural presence in the United States, ANA appointed 40 expert nurses to revise the 2010 nursing scope and practice to include the cultural competency aspects. The result was the addition of the Standard 8: Culturally Congruent Practice.
