P- Among Nurses and Physicians in an orthopedic surgical unit I- does the use of the SBAR format to communicate C- compare to non SBAR format O- To identify the problem in communication and its effect on patient and ways to solve the problem. According to Flicek article multiple barriers exist that hinder nurse- physician communication. A continuous flow of interruptions and multiple patient handoffs affect the ability of nurses and physicians to connect effectively, and establish a trusting and collegial relationship (Tschannen et al., 2011). Time is also a major factor in communication breakdown. Because nurses a n d physicians can independently busy, finding time to communicate properly becomes a pressing issue (Burns, 2011).
What I learned from her that can make me a better teacher candidate is that I should understand how a student learns. It makes take a while to understand that in the beginning, but if I can get myself in a classroom faster and observe different teaching techniques then I will be an expert by the time I graduate. Not all students learn the same, so as a teacher we must know how they learn and how we can incorporate it in our lesson. Not only understand how they learn, but their gaps as well. We should think about; what can we do help them understand before moving on and how to assess the students.
Large patient loads combined with a stressful work environment affects nurses’ abilities to provide quality healthcare. Patient safety should never be compromised. It is our responsibility to learn from research and improve our current nurse staffing ratios. Nurse staffing is key and affects all other outcomes. Without nurses administering the right treatment at the right time to the right patients, all other healthcare interventions are not effective.
My preceptor might not even realize they’re not providing me with adequate information. A preceptor wears many hats and I can see this during our workday. Precepting new employees is an intricate process, because nurses are faced with teaching a new nurse while providing care to patients, supervising other employees, and monitoring other patients (Rittman, 1992). My preceptor is attending to all these multiple demands as a part of their nursing practice and may not take notice that I am not receiving the needed training. I believe it’s important for us to be open and honest with each other, so the preceptorship can be a success.
Trust relationship is a kind of interactive process that requires care and concern (Chin, 2001). In this incident, if I told any incorrect information to my patient, she would start to suspect whether I am a medical student or not and start not to believe me. Hence, our relationship would be destroyed. It is important for us to stand from patients’ point of view to think about their thought and ensure the information shared must be accurate before starting any conversation with the
According to Duffy (2004) it is important for the mentor to facilitate learning needs and assessment by giving the student the opportunity to reflect on their learning needs and assess themselves. It is also arguable that it is important for a student to identify their own learning needs and self-assessment but the mentor needs to adhere to assessment process in order to provide fair and accurate assessment (Walsh 2014). The most important role of a mentor is to assess the progress of a student accurately and identify the learning needs and problems which the student is encountering on a placement at an early stage. (Philips et al 2000). To assess accurately and holistically a mentor should be able to assess the student’s competency through measurable assessment tools and to do assessment process accurately (Embo et al 2015).
Indeed, I conquer to the fact that there are still a number of improvements needed to be undertaken to build strong nurse-client relationship. As asserted by Prest and Keller (1993) that different levels of interaction systems are required to explore the perceptions of people regarding their lives, their existence and their problems in order to understand and/or craft better ways to solve the problems, creating and sustaining strong nurse-client relationships is one factor that go a long way to enhancing EBP. I observe too that evidence-based health care practices are usually available for many conditions such as heart failure, asthma and diabetes. Nevertheless, these particular practices are not often implemented in care delivery, and there
1. What makes this problem important? The issue of nurse staffing and patient safety is vital to the health of our patients and the longevity of out nursing licenses. No one wants to be the sentinel event that forces the change, so they leave making the problem of staffing worse. The departures cause inexperienced nurses to arrive and make the critical situation of staffing even more challenging.
Though I excel in providing zest, humor, and creativity I need a little help in the leadership, teamwork, and justice department. As a nursing student I have learned that you can not always look to doctors for help for they are called into medical emergencies all the time and might not be available; sometimes the nurse will have to take charge in case to see that everything goes well. When it comes to being the leader of a group project I tend to fall back and work as a supporter in fear of making a mistake or I feel I do not have the required skills to properly execute the solution to a situation. During my years as a student observing nurses I have learned that you cannot shy away from sharing your ideas or doubt your abilities, especially when your ideas could save someone’s life; you must exuberate self-confidence and courage to present that you are willing to take risks when necessary. In the health care profession teamwork is essential, doctors, nurses, lab technicians, nutritionist, etc.
John’s reflective model of influencing factors reveals the key elements which contributed to this incident. The (NMC, 2015) emphasizes on the duty of care a nurse should provide to service users which was not met in this incident. This creates awareness of the lack of basic nursing skills and qualities such as a breakdown in communication, lack of competence, decision making, policies regarding A&E slips and a lack of the school nurse’s responsibility/knowledge about her caseload and children with long term health conditions. It also identifies key issues such as a lack of collaborative working to prioritise health needs and “nursing culture”. The Department of Health (2004) highlights the importance of inter professional working to optimise health needs of children with long term illnesses, it identifies that this improves health outcomes for the child, supports the family and promotes social inclusion.
