Interprofessional collaboration involves a continuous interaction and knowledge sharing between professionals that will help improve patient care and outcomes. American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN, 2011) describes four competency domains to include: 1. Values/Ethics for Interprofessional Practice 2. Roles and Responsibilities 3. Interprofessional Communication 4.
Throughout the essay, the author has carried out a holistic assessment of the patient including objective and subjective data which allowed for the formation of actual and potential nursing diagnoses. Upon identifying all actual and potential nursing diagnoses, the author then identified the priority nursing diagnosis for John. Watkins et al (2015) found that carrying out nursing assessments can improve patient safety as they provide an early recognition of patient deterioration which leads to timely treatment e.g. frequently assessing vital signs, as appropriate, can allow the nurse to provide appropriate nursing interventions in response to abnormal vital signs. Providing preventative and timely care allows the nurse to provide nursing interventions
Evidence based practice is the act of incorporating clinical expertise, best research evidence and patient values and preferences in delivering care. This system, as opposed to previous methods that used the same standard of care for each patient, evaluates treatment plans based on research and the practioners own experiences. The usual workup of this type of practice is to ask a series of “why” questions and meticulously observe patient patterns to paint a better picture of the environmental factors surrounding the patient’s condition. This method advanced treatment modalities as practioners were able to better incorporate external factors in the assessment. Previous styles of care such as defensive medicine, forced providers to aggressively
Nursing diagnosis: Altered thought processes related to neuronal degeneration. Intervention: Provide appropriate cognitive enhancement techniques and safe social contact (The Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing 2012). Intervention: Monitor effectiveness and side effects of medications given to the patient in order to improve cognitive function or delay the decline (The Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing
Theory of Interpersonal Relations There are four major assumptions in Peplau’s Theory of Interpersonal Relations. The nurse and the patient interacts and the nurse make a difference in providing nursing care to the patient while the patient is receiving nursing care. Nursing and nursing education helps in the development of personal maturity. The interaction between
Among these potential benefits include: additional diagnostic tests, distribution of medications and vaccinations, and emergency evacuation services (Fair Benefits 2). Essentially, the Fair Benefits model emphasizes sharing the benefits of successful medical research and along with the Collaborative model, it is a solution to the four major questions regarding medical research in developing countries. These four questions include: “1) How can we prevent vulnerable patients form being exploited by research?, 2) How can such patients gives informed consent?, 3) Is it right to apply standards of research of developed countries to research in developing countries or can there be a double standard?, and 4) Are there special problems of context in doing research on poor, illiterate people in developing countries? (Pence 204).” In addition to answering these questions, there are three guidelines that need to be followed when conducting research in
Four models of communication with applicability nurse to patient communication in healthcare are reviewed. The Rogerian Model describes the role of the relationship between healthcare provider and the patient. Carl Rogers (1951) stated the therapeutic relationship as central to facilitating healthy adjustment in the patient. Communication is client-centered as the patient is the focus of interaction. The healthcare provider communicates with genuineness respect and empathy to foster patient adjustment to behaviors toward health.
Empowerment is a multidimensional process that helps individuals to gain control and take charge of their lives, as they themselves define as important (Funnell, et al. 2003). Patient empowerment is now been used as a keyword in health care industries as it emphasis on active decision making by the patients.
These principles act as a set of rules and skills that assist in utilising therapeutic communication to ultimately promote behaviour change (Dart, 2011). MI focuses on building rapport in the initial stages of the nurse-patient relationship in order to provoke change (Rollnick et al., 2008). As a result, MI has the potential to significantly improve and achieve patient goals and objectives by identifying, analysing and resolving patient ambivalence in order to promote behavioural and lifestyle changes (Miller and Rollnick, 2013). This strategy seeks to assist patients in thinking differently about what might be achieved through change. MI also has the potential to act as a clinical tool in advising, educating and guiding patients in their quest for change (Rosengren,
The first commitment of an ethical physician is to the patient. However, money could prevent that commitment to the patient. Physicians might think that small improvements for clinical outcomes is not worth the money. When money is spent to make medical improvement, it should be based on medical care that would have a greater benefits or meaningful purpose. In order to improve the physician's choices, they should be taught to use social and individual resources for clinical interventions.
The activities and formation of ACOs that do not fall within the "antitrust safety zone" will generally be evaluated by the Agencies under the Rule of Reason, which weighs the potential anticompetitive effects of collaboration against its potential pro-competitive effects, such as enhancing efficiency. The Policy Statement notes that the Rule of Reason will be applied by the Agencies "if providers are financially or clinically integrated and the agreement is reasonably necessary to accomplish the pro-competitive benefits of the integration." Converting from fee-for-service (FFS) model to value based reimbursement has brought many challenges to healthcare providers. These challenges include shift in payor mix, shared savings and increase in tracking provider quality and performance. The shift in payor mix relates to the decrease in commercial patients with higher reimbursement rates while Medicare and Medicaid patients with lower reimbursement rates will increase.

Evidence-based practice is the Institute of Medicine’s (IOM) third healthcare core competency that focuses on providing patient-centered care (Finkelman & Kenner, 2016). The definition according to the IOM is the combination of the highest research, clinical ability, and patient benefit while providing care to each individual patient (Greiner & Knebel, 2003). By implementing an evidence-based practice, healthcare providers can provide the best practice while abstaining from the “underuse, misuse, and overuse of care” (Greiner & Knebel, 2003, p. 56). Studies have shown evidence-based practice encourages improved healthcare quality, enhanced health results, and decreased care and costs (Melnyk, Gallagher-Ford, Long, & Fineout-Overholt, 2014). Components of Evidence-Based Practice
