It has shown to improve self confidence and quality of life. After the gastric sleeve surgery has been done, and the patient typically experiences weight loss, and the majority of the time their overall health improves. Patients tend to have less joint pain and see improvements with their blood sugar and cholesterol levels.
Evidence-based practice will definitely be more likely to thrive in environments where nurses feel they are being supported by both management staff and available resources. When nurses are offered further resources such as hands on training or simulation training that is backed by evidenced based research they can feel more secure and confident in the job they are able to perform during their shift. Nurses can thrive in their work place organization by building onto their basic knowledge and therefor enabling the nurse to climb the clinical ladder. As our book states “continuing to apply learning contributes to ongoing evidence based practice as one uses newer research and theory as a part of one’s practice.” Nurses who take control of their
In the clinical setting, the nurses’ expertise can be used to make clinical assessments and recommendations for routine care at a lower cost than a physician visit. This would increase the number of patients seen and increase the quality of the care provided. The advance practice nurse would be able to hone in on preventative measures and increase patient education. The advance practice nurse can also make recommendations about practice changes needed to facilitate better health outcomes through the use of evidence-based practice. Nursing leaders are aware of how important nursing science is to provide needed evidence to transform practice, even though, finding the time and resources to support any research activity is often challenging (Stone, 2017).
The use of evidence based practice in the hospital setting is increasing since research proving that integration of evidence based healthcare has a lot of benefits in this setting, and achieves the best possible outcomes for the patient . Improved patient outcomes is a result of the higher quality of care given by providers when following the most recent and updated evidence of the effect of care at the point of care. Utilization of evidence based practice also increases clinicians confidence in their care, allows them to adapt to new care, improve their skills, as well as their critical thinking and decision making skills. This in turn leads to higher clinician job satisfaction which promotes improved care of the patients through improved
Congested heart failure (CHF) is one of the leading causes of death in the United States (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2015). There have been research studies conducted to provide evidence-based practice in decreasing the effects of CHF. There is evidence that links exercise, diet, and education as key factors that decreases mortality and morbidity in patients with CHF. All healthcare settings can utilize and implement evidence-based practice when caring for patients with CHF. Nurses should promote education about CHF and the benefits of regular exercise and diet (Smart, 2010).
In 2009 the NHS constitution was published by the Department of health to help set key principles for all NHS bodies. The Department of health has last renewed the NHS constitution in 2013.The Department of health sets out that it will renew the constitution every 10 years (NHS constitution, 2015). The NHS constitution is there to provide a professional standard of care in a safe, high-quality environment. These values are in place to be a common reference for all NHS staff; patients and public so that they are striving towards the same principles and values.
As an advanced practice nurse (APN), I am committed to providing patient-centered care by using evidence based practice to treat and manage co-morbidities, direct care to the appropriate resources, and work among a multi-disciplinary team to provide quality service. My education reinforces me to be an ethical, compassionate provider who is committed to promoting a high standard of patient care. During my time as a healthcare provider, I have learned the importance of listening and tailoring the goals to promote compliance and increased knowledge among patients. I personally believe that through health education, effective assessment, and disease prevention, I can deliver competent care to the patients that I encounter.
But, nursing is so much more than the medical dramas played out on television. It’s taking care of people in a time of need with empathy, compassion, and skill. This paper will focus on my personal beliefs and my personal philosophy of nursing. To develop my personal philosophy of nursing I consulted the American Nurses Association Code of Ethics. Provision one reads “the nurse in all professional relationships, practices with compassion and
I utilize these values to make decisions and live my everyday life. In nursing, my philosophy focuses on ensuring patient safety, maintaining confidentiality, and providing dignity and comfort for the patients as well as their family members. By being open-minded and expressing genuine concern we can establish rapport and trust in our therapeutic relationships with the patients and their loved ones. I believe that every patient deserves to be treated with respect, regardless of their emotional state or socio-economic background. Often, while working in the Emergency Room, I meet patients, who are angry and frustrated in the face of unknown, yet I maintain my calm approach and recognize that their emotions are determined by the level of pain, anguish, and suffering they are experiencing at the moment.
Caring for The Individual: An Examination of Personal Nursing Philosophy Arianna Mailloux 400164224 NURSING 2AA3 Ashley Collins Harris February 19, 2018 As a novice nurse, developing and understanding of ones’ own personal feelings about nursing is important to help shape your clinical practice. Within this paper I will examine my personal assumptions, beliefs and values of the four nursing paradigms to develop a personal philosophy of nursing. This philosophy will be aligned with a known nursing theory and the comparisons will be discussed. Section I: Personal Philosophy of Nursing Person
Nursing Philosophy Treasure D. Nickelson University of Southern Indiana NURS 246: Introduction to Professional Nursing Sister Doris Clippard March 31, 2023 Nursing Philosophy Nursing is one of the most highly respected and trusted careers in the world, so it is no surprise that over the years various nurses have perfected their beliefs on how to carry out their duties. Nursing philosophies describe the ethics and values that nurses establish in their everyday care.
Philosophy of Nursing Everyone’s values and beliefs about the profession of nursing are all different. The four concepts of nursing are interrelated and all mean something different to every person, too. Throughout this paper, I will be reflecting on my values and beliefs about nursing through the four concepts while comparing them to a nursing theorist with views that are most similar to my own.
The reason I chose to become a nurse was due to my strong desire to help those in need. The profession of nursing, itself, is guided by human dignity, altruism, trust, and compassion (Shahriari, Mohammadi, Abbaszadeh, & Bahrami, 2013). I realized that the underlying values of nursing are parallel to my own personal philosophies, and therefore played a role in my decision to becoming a nurse. However, the overlap in values was not the only factor in my decision. Four years ago, my mother became pregnant with her third child and I was her support system throughout her entire pregnancy.
They should be good communicators, and actually listen to their patients, or families concerns, empathize, and provide clear concise information. An important value a healthcare worker should also embody is altruism. Nurses and medical professionals need prioritize their patients’ needs, without any regard for rewards or benefits. A persons’ health and welfare needs to be priority to a nurse, no matter what the situation. Josie’s Story highlighted the importance of altruism, and the need for nurses and doctors to take a step back and truly listen.
These viewpoints have importance for medicine as well as for nursing or other health professions. The complete practice of human caring theory is most fully realized in a nursing theory because nursing allows for the constant caring factor that medicine does not have;
