I learned that nurses need to be familiar with patient’s rehabilitation by knowing therapies that are indispensable and beneficial for their recoveries; and that active involvement in the prevention of deteriorations and complications in physical health and function is important for the patient (p. 22). 3. The article changed the way I think and understand that knowledge is power hence educating patients on best practice to get them back to health or functioning normally is of the essence. 4. In my future practice, I will frequently update self of therapies and pay more attention to details that the patient identifies as essential for recovery to better help them regain their well-being and ability to perform their daily activities.

Few things need to consider when telling to patients and patients family with regards to their prognosis like patients reactions or emotions and even financial resource. Health care professional are expected to give the detailed information to their client whether it is desirable or undesirable news. But on the other hand, they need consider whether telling truth would help or make situations more worst. Ethical dilemma among health care professional arises, either telling the truth or withholding the truth would benefit the patient.
Within Australia, the ER department has a duty to act when a patient is presented (Atkins, De Lacey, & Britton, 2014, p.41). Accident and emergency departments critically rely on the triage nurses' ability to assess the patients’ needs, to determine allocation, and delivery of time-sensitive emergency care and safety to its community. Internationally, many countries have adopted a standardized assessment instruments for patients presenting to the ER (Hodge, Hugman, Varndell, and Howes, 2013). Since April 2002, Australia has utilised The Australasian Triage Scale (ATS) that assess utility, validity, reliability and safety to categorise a patient's priority for care (Australian Government, Department of Health and Ageing, 2009). According to
However, as a family member I can see the desire to hold on for a long as possible. Accepting the values of others, although perhaps different from mine, will be necessary. I must enter agreements wisely and make promises only that I can keep to maintain the fidelity between myself and the clients. Providing nursing care must incorporate the family members of the patient, and understanding the grieving process involved with losing someone is of key importance. In adhering to the principles of veracity, I as a nurse must carefully choose how I present the truth in the least hurtful way.
Knowing what I did and what I have allowed another person to do, I have learned a very important lesson about myself when it comes to ethical decision-making. Should the situation happen a second time, I will do things a lot more differently than I would when I was a new nurse. In addition to my personal experiences, I will apply the ethical decision-making models that I have learned through this class and come up with interventions that I personally think is the right and moral thing to do. By doing that, I will have less trouble facing ethical dilemmas and ultimately prevent nurse
If you aren’t helping, what are you doing? Some people today, are being “generous” for all the wrong reasons: to fulfill volunteer hours or to set an image. We need people to check their moral intentions before believing they are “helping” the community. In other words, people cause more damage to others when having the wrong intentions when it comes to charitable work. If we don’t, we create a society that pities those who suffer in order create a positive image for an individual.
“Code two calls for the consideration of culture, religion, gender, and primary language to be taken into account when planning patient-centered care” (ANA, 2001, p.18). The proper steps would’ve been to have open discussions from the beginning in order to build trust and create a comfortable environment for both the patient and her family. The last code, Primacy of interest, was exemplified when the healthcare team used translating services to communicate with the parents. This, however, was unsuccessful since the majority of the discussion took place with her
However, donation involves asking ethical questions because the treatment affects not only the people in need of transplants but also the individuals who donate. The main reason why people may consider donating organs is because of the very great benefit that this can bring to others. On the other hand, some find the idea of organ donation too invasive. Those people believe that it is wrong to take organs from people. The decision to or not to donate is a moral decision.
As a medical professional, it is imperative to know how and when to talk to a patient. It is crucial to be sensitive, honest, and open (Cohn, 2010). When providing care, a person must be compassionate, but also understand when not to cross a line. For instance, if a patient requests to wait until their family has arrived to hear test results, their request must be considered. But at the same time, it is also important to make sure that waiting for family to arrive would not put the patient’s life in jeopardy.
I agree with the article, Ibelieve that organization is the key to allowing you to get done the responsibilities that you areassigned. This article influenced me to think deeply about myself by, wondering if I can’t do itwithin that time, will I ever be able to.

It’s the quickest way and the correct way when it comes to anyresponsibilities such as; paper work or even a residents.
Also, it should be pointed that sometimes this emotional treatment can go beyond intercourse, a comforting hug or kisses can give patients the encouragement they need to keep fighting. All this attention and comfort given by the patient’s partner can bring a sense of regularity into their lives and make the relationship better facing this disease. So, in conclusion, sex life during Mesothelioma treatment can be difficult but also rewarding in many ways. Partners must be supportive with the patients regarding their physical appearance and both should make appropriate questions to the doctor, despite all fear or shame this may carry, to know how to have a secure sexual
I feel that the mother needs to be consistent with her mental health services and work with us as we are not working against her.

We would need to assess her understanding of her illness and ways he can help her improve. For her we could also bring in pamphlets to help her in her learning process. We all have different methods of learning and this can help increase her understanding. With family being such importance in this culture she could be scared since she does not have any family. Addressing this by having social work or home health come out is a way to ensure that we support our patient.
