Mastering these competencies will not only lend to success as an advance practice nurse, but also as a military leader. The ability to “Demonstrate leadership in the synthesis, utilization and evaluation of all interdisciplinary information to promote quality improvement in a health care environment” is vital when interacting with executive leadership. The information presented to key leadership must be supported by evidence based data as it will drive decisions for the organization. Regardless of if it is related to Army Medicine, or planning war fighting missions this principle will hold true in any military specialty. The second competency that resonated with me was the ability to “Demonstrate the use of informatics methodologies to advocate for patient autonomy, dignity and rights and in policy development that would support both the patient and the institution.”
Evidence based practice holds a high level of importance in the field of professional nursing. Nursing research adds to the current knowledge base and simultaneously supplies trustworthy data that can be used as the basis for practice (Kearney-Nunnery, 2016, p. 79) . The implementation of the practices gained through research, and proven through evidence, contribute to the profession of nursing, the welfare of the patient, and the health industry. In the field of nursing, evidence based practice provides the nurse with the most up to date and proven interventions. It increases the nurses overall knowledge and expertise, which makes them a higher quality provider of care.
Furthermore, my case analysis reveals that nurse leaders should appreciate individuality, and most importantly, regardless of the type of interaction, we as humans’ desire, feeling valued, especially by an organization, which can empower individuals. Therefore, applying The Quality-Caring Model© by Dr. Joanne R. Duffy effectively addresses the global issues of job satisfaction and nurse retention, which in turn, can have a significant impact the healthcare outcome for individuals, families, populations, and/or
PHYSIOLOGIC MONITORING SYSTEM Monitoring patient and having understanding of physiological parameters is important to every nurse, so with the aid of physiologic monitoring system the job is made easy to be able to offer high quality. Normal and abnormal variants in parameters and vital signs from the system help the nurse to intervene promptly and appropriately. It helps the nurse to tailor parameters of the alarms to meet the specific needs of each patient. Continuous monitoring of physiological function help guide management decision and when to make therapeutic interventions.

Expected Utility theory The expected utility theory is a body of evidence that provides strong foundation for critical thinking and the decision-making process (McKenna, Pajnkihar & Murphy 2014, p. 61). This theory allows for nurses to provide links between treatment guidelines and the evidence-based practice which supports the treatment to provide the best possible care for patients (McKenna, Pajnkihar & Murphy 2014, p. 61). The expected utility theory allows for nurses to be able to accurately and effective decisions, through ensuring that all information about the decision is being considered by the nurse (Scott et al. 2014, p. 232).This decision-making process is achieved by looking at the positives and negatives of the treatment to determine the risks and any possible treatment alternatives to determine which would be best for the patient’s outcome (Scott et al.
This connects back to the learning outcome (4.1), “Demonstrates use of professional standards and the Code of Ethics to inform safe nursing care as applicable”. Using the code of ethics will help me provide competent, safe, compassionate care to clients. And my awareness and knowledge still need to develop to perform the ethical care I require to do in the long-term care
Continuous relationships with the care team, individualising of care and providing care that anticipates the patient’s needs all achieve best care delivery. (Wagner et al 2001). However the course of any chronic disease is determined by personal attributes, social influences and the professional treatment delivered. Yet, nurses and healthcare professional can try to maintain steady control of any chronic disease by accurate management. The TM model can be used along with other nursing models of care for effective
2.3 Professional Context: It is important for me to do more skillful and be competent in my quality of care rendered to my patient. Professional must ensure that my record is accurate and accessible, reliable since it serves as useful information for quality of care rendered. 2.4 Current Research on Quality control in Nursing Jack Needleman and Susan Hassmilter (2009) stated that, hospital need to integrate their work to improve quality and patient-centeredness and to increase the efficiency of care delivery. Nurses and other front line staff must play key roles. To benefit from the insight and input of these staff members, hospital will need to value their potential contributing shifting their vision of nursing from being a cost center to being critical service line.
ED staff nurses are very pleased with the opportunities that the department is giving them to further enhance and hone their knowledge and skills. The ED staff nurses feel that the nursing leaders and the administration will give importance to their professional growth needed to be effective and efficient care providers. Still on the table 2e statement four, shows that this practice of the institution contributed to the mean (3.07) of the statement that “ An active staff development or continuing educational program for nurses” is highly effective. An active staff development is conducted to develop ED staff nurse competencies, especially in today’s increasingly complex healthcare environment and the emergence of new diseases.
According to The Journal of Nursing Administration Informatics incorporates 1) data gathering, 2) data representation, 3) information management. Informaticians work closely with IT practitioners to integrate the workflow into the system design. Their contextual knowledge of the practice workflow, exploring of the advantages and disadvantages help the informaticians to create systems that are clear and help physicians make a decision. Informaticians can help rule out implications that might potentially create problems and they can recognize some tools, as being important to the clinical setting that the ITs might not
Hi Kimberley, thank you for your thorough discussion of trustworthy and credible research sources. The textbook provided many useful strategies on how to locate evidence-based clinical practice guidelines and systematic reviews. I was encouraged to read some familiar names in the chapter, such as the Joanna Briggs Institute and Cochran Collaboration (Brown, 2014). You made a great point about quality care with your statement regarding nursing’s responsibility to develop best practices using the data we find. Thanks again for your thorough, insightful discussion.
Nursing profession is a practice that utilizes findings based on facts and/or evidence. In that, research plays a vital role in building a strong foundation to support the knowledge of nursing. In the profession of nursing field, research and/or evidence provides rationalized, cost-effective, and quality care interventions through validation (Barbara & Susan, 2014). It also assists with existing knowledge in creation of new ideas and innovations. Decisions are made based on research results.
The nursing informatics course has taught us the importance of the utilization of electronic charting system in the health care field. This system helps facilitate effective communication among clinicians in the health care field. However for that to happen, we must practice what this course has though us, which is good and proper nursing documentation. The electronic charting system allows multiple clinicians to have access to patient information in real time with the help of the internet, however for this information to be helpful we need to practice good and proper nursing charting.
The National Institute of Nursing Research The National Institute of Nursing conducts research to improve the health and well being of the population at large as they incorporate both clinical and research training on health and illness across all ages to prevent diseases, while they manage and improve the care of each individual. The goal of the research facility is to apply new technologies to promote health while developing scientist of the future ("National Institute of Nursing Research," 2011). There are three current methodologies to research; quantitative, qualitative, and outcome research. Examining all three closely reveals a complex distinction in methods of research. The quantitative method focuses on the formal, objective process
