It is important for the nurse to consider the fact that neonates do feel pain. This is important as the misconception about neonate pain is still prevalent in the medical community. If the nurse considered the neonate as capable of experiencing pain, they could easily identify behavioral cues. The nurse should be adept in the use of standardized pain assessment scales specific to neonates in order to assist in her understanding of pain, and to confirm her observation during the assessment of pain. Some scales involve evaluation of crying time, but crying can mean a lot of things and not only pain.
Besides, the long term ever growing behavioral, social and thinking results of child abuse on victimized kids are additional. Research conducted on child maltreatment give enough knowledge and understanding which can benefits sufferers of ill-treatment, or neglect, etc. Such victims also need to be given equal attention just as burn victims, sufferers of infections or genetic diseases, etc. Such victims are also socially dormant or lack self-confidence. They are also not active politically.
Human development has interesting stages due to the changes in behaviour and growth of the body. Adolescent depression is a serious development issue which faces most households, hence requires proper attention. The occurrence of adolescent depression is most common in the modern society, though the impact of the depression has not been addressed adequately and may be significant. Many behavioural problems, for example, school dropout, drug abuse, unprotected sexual activity, suicide, self- inflicted injuries are the result of depression. Regular depression screening is important in the healthcare setting since it helps the physicians treat depression and employ recovery mechanisms for the patients.
Research on cognitive behavioral interventions in chronic pain involves CBT, relaxation therapy, biofeedback, or some combination of the three. Generally, some form of CBT is combined with either relaxation training or biofeedback. Assessment Patients with chronic pain need to feel understood by those who are providing care to them. On the other hand, a therapist requires relevant and adequate information about the patient from a bio-psychosocial perspective to establish therapeutic goals. Therefore, a comprehensive psychological assessment is a prerequisite for CBT and other interventions (Please refer to chapter “Psychological Assessment of Patients with Chronic Pain”).
Subjective data usually includes feelings of anxiety, physical discomfort or mental stress. Although only patients provide subjective data relevant to their health condition, practicing student nurses need to be aware that these problems result in physiological changes (Potter & Perry, 2014, p.
Anyone who works with individuals with disabilities must know the details regarding each disability. In the case of a personal trainer working with people with disabilities, they must understand the general characteristics associated with various disabilities. For example, a personal trainer must understand the general characteristics associated with spastic or non-spastic cerebral palsy under a specific level of the Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS). Many individuals with disabilities emphasize the poor training of the staff at various fitness facilities, as they often do not have sufficient knowledge about how to adapt physical activity for them (Week 4 Reading 1, Week 7 Reading 3). This was also highlighted during Archie’s guest lecture on Variety Village.
One of the best child and youth care perspectives to use while working with individuals that have depression is the strength based perspective. A strength based perspective in child and youth care is based around focusing on what the individual’s strengths and abilities are. This is extremely important when speaking about depression, everyone can push themselves to different extents when dealing with depression. If you do not keep that in mind and tailor your plan around what they can do then they will not have attainable goals and it can make them feel worse about themselves. When they are having a low day you need to work with them to find out what their strengths are and what the most attainable plan is for them, for one person getting up
The current study investigated the effectiveness of vestibular stimulation from selected head positions on fine motor skills and pinch strength in children with hemiparesis. It has been demonstrated that children with a unilateral motor disability, such as hemiplegic CP, may have difficulty with fine motor tasks, such as writing or cutting with scissors. Activities requiring bilateral manipulation are the most difficult to perform . Selection of vestibular stimulation from prone position in this study comes in agreement with Umphred et al.  who reported that each position (side lying, prone or sitting) affect the static position of the vestibular system differently and may differently affect the muscle tone and hence affect the power and range of motion.
Reasons for deviation should be stated and discussed. After that an action should be taken and a record of the action taken and the outcome should then be recorded and fed back to front-line staff. (21) weakness in the documentation system ,lack of record keeping standards, and lack of systems in place for recording, collating, analyzing, reporting and acting upon variances for children with CP are major barriers towards quality improvement regarding the process of care of children with CP in the studied
Findings from this study will help to analyze current situation on pain assessment with respect to level of knowledge and practice among nurses attending critically ill adult patients, so as strategies to improve pain assessment knowledge and practice, such as providing update knowledge and practice, continuing education be design, implemented and evaluated. Additionally, it may have an impact on the current education curriculum on pain, hence the need to investigate nurses’ knowledge and practices relating to pain assessment for critically ill
