Human beings competence has a complex combination of knowledge, attitudes, values, beliefs and ethnic, that we adopted from our culture as external environment or from our family members as internal environment to use during our lives. I feel as though as a healthcare provider or a professional nurse must be sensitive and respectful to each patient's beliefs, culture, and ethnic to improve the nurses' plan care to meet the needs of anyone as human beings. My central beliefs about the individual person is to understand and accept the concepts of healthcare so the nurse can fulfill her goal to improve the individual person's health care. The patient should be participate to own, care to promote his health.
Health care promotion is considered as the responsibility of every nurse. In order to promote health care practices nurses need to understand clearly the term “Health Promotion”. While conducting analysis it is identified that it is essential for nurses to significantly recognise that health promotion is a broader concept. For the particular purpose, it is necessary for nurses to develop distinctive skills and capabilities to reduce health care associated risks and optimise the productivity while effectively lowering the total costs of health related activities. Health promotion is basically a collection of practices through which nurses should motivate individuals for healthy living and better lifestyle management.
Interprofessional teamwork effects healthcare in various ways. It mainly provides a system that allows several distinct individuals to come together and work collectively to improve how we care for patients. It is important because in the healthcare field one of our main goals is to treat and care for our patients holistically. If the objective is
Clinical Nurse Leaders are part of an interdisciplinary team members working together to plan and implement most effective patient care. There are differences in terms of leadership. Family Nurse Practitioners act as a leader related to patient care in terms of patient diagnosis, treatment modalities for the wellbeing of the patient and community. Registered Nurses with their work experiences can work as clinical nurse leaders and monitor the care provided by the nurses on the unit. They participate in other nursing organizations or committees and provide suggestions to improve health care system.
Evidence-based practice in nursing and healthcare Introduction Evidence-based health care refers to the careful and thoughtful decision-making that happens during patient care, which is greatly influenced by valid and clinically relevant research, to provide quality patient care and improve patient outcomes (Broom and Adams, 2012). As such, the main aim of the evidence-based health care is to help healthcare providers make choices that best affect individual patients, of which they have to base their judgment on current and valid information. Evidence-based practice is a process that necessitates practitioners to examine the patient, come up with a clinical query, carry out a research pertaining the question, and attain supportive evidence.
Foundational Nursing Theories I agree with the Systems Theory in that people are constantly interacting with their environment, and any single change in a system can affect it as a whole. The purpose of nursing, is explained well in the Theory of Goal Attainment. It is focused on setting appropriate goals to help people maintain health. The Caring Theory, describes the
The Health Care Affordable Act is a health care reform policy that guarantees all citizens the right to health care. According to the American Nurses Association website, “the American Nurses Association has been advocating for health care reforms that would guarantee access to high-quality health care for all. With the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), millions of people have greater protection against losing or being denied health insurance coverage, and better access to primary and preventive services. ANA recognizes the debate of health care is not over, and remains committed to educating the nursing public about how the changing system impacts our lives and our profession” (American Nurses Association, 2016, P.1). The Health Affordable Act has had a major impact on my practice, in relations to, providing holistic care to the community that seeks health care.
Holistic care includes caring for an individual as a whole by assessing their physical, psychological, spiritual, social and cultural needs and providing care in an environment which supports this philosophy (Price, 2006). Person-centred care not only involves the patient but also includes meeting the needs of the family and/or carers of the patient and involving other members of the multi-disciplinary team. The Nursing and Midwifery Council’s (NMC) (2008) Code corresponds with Price (2006) by mentioning that nurses must treat people as individuals and respond to their concerns and preferences, guaranteeing that
They are having low level of autonomy and empowerment in patient care. In opinion of APN Jessica Yu, APNs are allowed only make changes and suggestions in the case note but not in the electronic system. Doctor need to verify changes and suggestions. In many areas the APNs can not work individually and they supervised by anesthetist. Autonomy is the freedom to make discretionary and binding decisions consistent with one’s scope of practice (Lewis,2006).
AACN Baccalaureate Essentials The AACN Baccalaureate has nine essentials, essential number two “Basic organizational and systems leadership for quality care and patient safety” applies to baby boomer nurses retiring and leaving a big gap in the workforce. With baby boomers leaving the workforce, there will be a demand for nurses and the supply of nurses available will be short, young, and inexperienced. This will affect the quality of care and safety of the patient, which is why this issue needs more attention. Working towards preventing this issue needs to start now as nurses can’t wait till it happens.
