In this article, ''Computer-assisted reminiscence therapy: developing practice,''(December 2013) Alan Pringle and Sharlotte Somerville explain an experimental project in which the use of new technology helps to recover the patient with dementia. According to the authors reminiscence therapy works very well for the patients with short-term memory loss . As the Dementia starts becoming chronic it can lead the patient to physical and mental behavior disorders. Pringle and Somerville discusses in the article that reminiscence therapy helps to cure Dementia by making a connection with a patient ,so patients can trust nurses and response to reminiscence therapy. Although it takes time to build this connection between patients and nurses, this therapy

Andrew Weil, md, in his broadly read book, Spontaneous Healing, contends that guided symbolism utilizes a type of mesmerizing to prompt mending. He expresses that guided symbolism engages patients by urging them to build up their own systems for overseeing disease.
Motivational interviewing is a collaborative, person-centred form of communication which focuses on the language of change. ‘It is designed to strengthen personal motivation for and commitment to a specific goal by eliciting and exploring the person’s own reasons for change within an atmosphere of acceptance and compassion’ (Miller et al., 2013, p.29). The technique of motivational interviewing was developed by two psychologists, Bill Miller and Steve Rollnick. Motivational interviewing is therapeutic to patients as it is based on a partnership, rather than a nurse-patient relationship (Heckman et al., 2010). There are four processes of motivational interviewing; engaging, focusing, evoking and planning. These processes of motivational interviewing are used daily in the nursing profession to facilitate in the delivery of high quality care to ambivalent patients. In this composition, I will critique my digital recording where I talked to a patient using the processes of motivational interviewing. I will focus on the processes of engaging and evoking.
Neuroscience tells that each human being have a different and unique way of communicating, speaking, and interacting, and that humans have different experiences of conflicts that allows one human to connect with the other (Teitelbum, 2016). Having the power to communicate with one another is a privilege, but being able to connect and speak from the heart is a gift. Nursing is a profession that allows a person to give comfort and care through an effective communication which bridges in healing a person’s body. Being unable to positively communicate with the patient causes an enormous struggle in building a relationship between the patient and the nurse. This paper will point out the positive and negative communication a nurse used to interact with her patient and will offer alternatives to improve the nurse-patient relationship.
This paper will explain the seven principles of patient-clinician communication. It will then apply three of those principles to my interactions with my patients. Next, it will describe three methods being used in my area of practice to improved communication between the patients and clinicians. It will ultimately choose one of those principles that applies best to my practice and clearly describe how I use it. It will describe ethical principles that can be applied to issues with patient-clinician communication. Finally, it will explain the importance of ethics in communication and how patient safety is influenced by good or bad team communication.
Paramedics must communicate effectively and appropriately to service users, relatives and other healthcare professionals, failure to do so may result in disciplinary action (HEALTH AND CARE PROFESSIONS COUNCIL 2012). When healthcare professionals communicate ineffectively Important information can be misinterpreted, creating confusion, ambiguity and anxiety, leading to hostile situations (McCABE & TIMMINS 2006).In England between 2011 and 2012, 10,986 complaints were made in relation to ineffective communication, and a further 12,571 related to the attitude of staff (NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE 2012). This emphasises the importance of ensuring that the health care professional’s verbal and non-verbal communication both convey the same positive
According to Julia Wood (2004), “communication is a systemic process in which individuals interact with and through symbols to create and interpret meanings. However, Sheppard (1993) suggests that, in the nurse–patient relationship, communication involves more than the transmission of information; it also involves transmitting feelings, recognizing these feelings and letting the patient know that their feelings have been recognized (M, 1993)”. It is a two way process. The patient conveys their fears and concerns to their nurse and helps them make a correct nursing diagnosis. An excellent communication skill between nurses and patients is essential for the successful outcome of individualized nursing care of each patient. The ability to communicate
I believe in the philosophy of trying to live leaving the world in a better place and looking for daily opportunities to do so. I value efforts with a ripple effect, in which one action can create many positive responses. These ideas parallel with my philosophy of health education and promotion to help individuals achieve optimal health, specifically related with behavior change and decision- making philosophies.
A qualitative study focuses on natural settings that are associated in everyday life. Typically, qualitative researchers often do their study on smaller sample sizes as they are not looking to establish a statistical generalization in their findings. Qualitative research does not involve statistical measures or quantity of any kind, instead it is the study that involves lived human experiences. A lived human experience can be interpreted as gaining personal knowledge in everyday life by living through something or being involved in life events. The purpose of this paper is to analyze and critique the study if R.C. Stenhouse and his attempt to understand patient experiences in a acute psychiatric ward
Healthy People 2020 aims to educate and support the nation in wellness and prevention just as well as nurses do. Nurse as well as Healthy People aim to improve each individual’s health in more ways than one. When it comes to nursing I feel that it’s our duty as nurses to do our best to educate these patients and help support them on their journey while they are in your care in hopes that what you taught them sticks with them once they are
Having a career in nursing can be very exciting and rewarding. My Aunt Audrey was the first Beard to enter the medical field. When I told her I was finishing my bachelor’s degree at the University of Toledo to get my certification in nursing, her face lit up like a Christmas tree during the holidays. Not only was she proud of me but my parents couldn’t be happier. It is a blessing having parents that support my dreams. They’ve sacrificed so much just for me to be here. For Christmas, my mother got me an ornament that says nurse Candice on it, and I was so speechless. All my life I was infatuated with science and the human body. I never thought I’d make it this far due to all the obstacles put in my path but, with hard work and dedication,
Each week builds on education materials from prior weeks. The group is lead through decisional balance exercises. For instance, asking the Veterans to give positive reasons to lose weight and writing it down on the board with a separate column listing the hard and unpleasant things about losing weight. The dietitian notes the process and how the group had easier time generating first list; yet despite clear benefits, weight management is a struggle. The effectiveness of Motivational Interviewing (MI) relies on allowing the patients to discover their own reasons and determination to change a behavior. Thus, allowing the Veterans to weight decisions is a great strategy used to promote healthy change. Solutions and ideas that are generated by the group are much more powerful than those that are
Pregnancy in opiate addicts is something medical professionals must be notified of when you enter rehab. This is because you 'll need a different type of treatment than someone who isn 't pregnant would receive. This doesn 't make pregnancy among substance abusers any less significant of a problem.
Health promotion and health education have many similarities, despite them being distinctly different. Health promotion and health education are both very important, especially when being used as tools in the hands of different authority figures and policy makers. Health promotion and health education both advocate for health in a systematic way or as a planned application, however we learned in class that anyone can promote health, but not everyone can be a health educator when it comes to health education.
