Framework for Praxis The author is pursuing the Pediatric Primary Care Nurse Practitioner (PNP-PC) course. In order for nurses to be able to assess and manage their patients, they should be able to effectively synthesize knowledge (Higgs, Burn, & Jones, 2011). This paper aims to provide a succinct discussion of the ideological, theoretical, and ethical framework that influences the author’s praxis. Furthermore, this paper will discuss how the author’s philosophical viewpoint and theoretical framework affect how she views her phenomenon of interest on newborn screening for critical congenital heart defects (CCHD). Lastly, this paper will present the author’s graphic model of her praxis framework.
Y and client X agreed to meet for bi-weekly sessions. Their first session included client X completing an assessment test for depression. Client X completed the Beck’s Depression Inventory II (BDI-II) to assess whether she suffered from depression.

Initial Response 1.Describe how highly functioning interdisciplinary teams enhance the quality and safety of care provided in today’s complex healthcare organizations. Provide an example of a team approach used for quality and safety within your organization and discuss why you believe the team was or was not successful in achieving its goals. Use theoretical perspectives about team formation, membership, and tools to substantiate your response. Shoemaker, et al. (2016) wrote that interprofessional team-based medicine is viewed as a significant feature of delivery systems restructured to deliver more effective and higher quality care.
