I chose this competency because it teaches me that I need to have a positive self-esteem and a great attitude towards my patients, colleagues and every situation in order to be able to provide holistic quality care. 2. The article taught me that fitness to practice, includes being accountable and responsible to cope with stress and know how to balance your duty to care for patients; and an equal duty to ensure that fitness to practice competently does not threaten the safety of patients, co-workers or oneself (p. 8). 3. The article widened my understanding that if I am not mentally or physically fit; it’s impossible for me to care for another and meet their needs and can put patients in danger due to errors.
By continuing to partake in the Quality Assurance program and self-regulating behaviours can fulfill the standard of being “safe, competent and ethical practitioners” (CNO, 2014, pp. 3). Setting of First Year of RN Practice The ideal setting of my first year of practice, as an RN will be at Juravinski Hospital on the hematology unit. I have always known that I wanted to work in oncology and my placement on the hematology unit solidified my decision to pursue this goal. During a clinical shift, I would be responsible for providing care to patients with malignant hematological diseases, completing pertinent assessments and teaching skills, such as how to care for the mouth when experiencing mucositis and how to avoid infections.
I worked directly with patients diagnosed with various psychiatric illnesses in groups designed to assist in rehabilitation and teaching activities of daily living. In these groups I helped with a wide range of activities such as assisting the patients with stimulating crafts, and encouraging them to participate in exercises and games, and answered questions related to the activities. Continuing my volunteer experience with occupational therapists I worked at Encore, an assisted living and rehabilitation setting. Here I worked with geriatric clients with both neurological and orthopedic impairments. I also spent time volunteering at Therapeutic and Recreational Riding Center, Inc. working with an occupational therapist in facilitating Hippotherapy to incorporate equine movement into treatment.
Initially, therapist and client have to build an equal relationship between each other, and later this relationships can become like a colleague who coaches them or somebody whose expertise and experience and understanding and knowledge they do rely on (2010, audio, excerpt 10). Therapist’s aim is to guide the client to find the direction in their life, they keep their on the goal and the purpose at all times, but allow the client to take that in charge themselves. Therapist helped him look at things in more breadth or more depth, i.e. exploring why it is they have this position or why it is it seem like this to them rather than like that to them (2010, audio, excerpt

The approach is directed towards the attainment of objectives identified during therapy, that can lead to positive change for the client. Solution Focused Brief Therapy ( SFBT ) is a therapeutic method that empowers clients to construct positive change in their lives in a short-term period. SFBT holds two essential assumptions when it comes to creating change: 1) to facilitate the process where the client defines the outcome of therapy if it is to be effective, in other words, what will the preferred outcome be and 2) the therapist creates awareness about the strengths and resources and how it can be applied to create change ( Ratner, George & Iveson,2012

Putting the client as the expert, understanding her story instead of attempting to judge it, in the therapist’s point of view. The therapist must in any point display with utmost care, interest, respectful curiosity, openness, empathy, and fascination. Once this collaborative relationship has been established, the counsellor and the client can move forward and work on how to improve the outcomes of the

The solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT) approach believe clients hold the key to their own success, therefore our job as therapists is to guide or help them to construct goals.
