In 2003 the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) defined nursing as “The use of clinical judgement in the provision of care to enable people to improve, maintain, or recover health, to cope with health problems, and to achieve the best possible quality of life, whatever their disease or disability, until death.” Nurses strive to accomplish the best possible quality of life for their patients, regardless of disease or disability. Crosta (2014) elaborates on this by writing that nurses use clinical judgment to optimise, protect and promote health, ease suffering and become advocates in health care for their patients and their families encouraging person-centred care. Price (2006) defines person-centred care as care which centres on the patient’s own experience of their needs, health and illness. Patient-centred care is linked within literature to the concept of Holism.
According to Rogers patients can participate knowing the change process to its capacity. The characteristics basically, describes of the life processes of the patient are: Energy field, openness, pattern and dimensionality. This model, the nurses role is to serve people. Rogers also includes, Therapeutic touch, humour, music, mediation, imagery and color use.
The Health Promotion Model is the middle range theory utilized in the paper. It describes the multidimensional nature of persons as they interact within their environment to pursue health (Petiprin, 2016). It is also directed at increasing a patient's level of well-being. According to McEwen and Wills (2011), health promotion interventions are necessary for improving the health populations everywhere and on all ages. The Health Promotion Model makes four assumptions (Petiprin, 2016): 1 Individuals seek to actively regulate their own
Where a patient further defined as any recipient of comfort care (individual, nurse, family, institution, community). The environment described as any aspect of recipient’s setting that can be manipulated to enhance comfort. Health is the optimal functioning level as defined by the recipient of care (Alligood, 2014). Comfort Theory can further be classified as predictive, as it demonstrates and predicts the relationship between the nursing interventions and achievement of enhanced comfort. I would further classify it as an outcome theory as it portrays the nursing process as the changing force that enables a patient to achieve a state of comfort and demonstrate health-seeking
One of my key beliefs is that it is my responsibility to ensure my patient is in a condition and environment that enhances the healing process. To create such an environment, I identify some of the client’s desires and immediate needs which when met will lead to a positive attitude in the patient that will promote the healing process. Such needs may include visits by family members, and allow their spiritual leader to spend time with them among others. I also believe in maintaining my own health by leading a healthy lifestyle. Taking good care of myself is vital in ensuring that I am in a position to perform optimally in my work.
My personal philosophy of nursing is based on holistic care which includes the mental and physical health of a person. I believe examining the whole picture and variables that play into a patient’s health is necessary to successful outcomes as well as effective communication. I think of Peplau because her theory discusses interpersonal relations and I am a firm believer in developing a strong, therapeutic nurse-patient relationship. Without a strong nurse-patient relationship, patient’s may not have the trust they should, therefore will not learn the tools necessary to be able to care for themselves. I strive each day in practice to develop strong nurse-patient
With possible managerial changes the service users will be empowered. With effective Person Centred Planning each individual service user will engage in activities which are meaningful and relevant to their care plan. The service users will have advocates working alongside them and on their behalf and to ensure equality and fairness for all. Both the Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA) and Person Centred Planning (PCP) are important aspects of social care going forward, this assignment will highlight their effectiveness and also how they would impact on the health and wellbeing for the service users in White Meadows.
This is the method that the nurse practitioners can use to prevent this to be happened. The issue of patient quality of care and safety can impact a patient life the health care providers have to consider how important it is to assure

The carative factors also support holistic healing of the whole person by creating a supportive environment for physical, mental, sociocultural, and spiritual healing, and allowing for exploration of existential-phenomenological thoughts.

Healthiness is a sense of well-being and interactions that allows individuals to be involved in their lifestyle choices, such as nutrition, exercise, and risky behaviors. As a DNP-prepared nurse, there is an obligation to promote health and encourage healthy lifestyles. Health promotion is comprised of education, judgements, accommodating with activities to include health screening, individual care, supporting environmental modification for optimistic well-being activities and options, and developing policies in employment and public locations (Rowland, Fragala-Pinkham, Miles, & O’Neil, 2015).
