The theoretical framework gives a detailed reason to why the highlighted research ques-tion exists. Orem’s self-care deficit theory of nursing is the theoretical framework relat-ing to this research because the theory is further divided into three sub-theories in which requisite are line with the following: Individual stages of development and goals, Health conditions, Developmental states, Energy consumption and expenditure, Atmospheric conditions and also the theory gives room to investigate possible causes of malnutrition alongside nurse’s intervention by assessing the need for care, approaches and required interventions. According Orem in 2001, nursing can be viewed as part of the health sector that provides authorized care to individuals.
To achieve this goal I will need to increase my knowledge of how we treat the four main cancers that our patients have. These include lymphoma, myeloma, leukemia, and aplastic cancers. To achieve this goal, I have created a learning plan (see appendix A) similar to the Quality Assurance program the CNO has designed to ensure nurses engage in safe and competent care. An entry-to-practice competency related to this practice under the knowledge based practice domain is “proactively seeks new information, knowledge and best practices for use in the provision of nursing care” (CNO, 2014, pp.
Surveillance diagnoses are those that recognize patient risks that are anticipated by the nurse, who remains ready to act in the event of occurrence. The profession, as a whole, and language developers, in particular, need to expand standardized nursing diagnosis terminology so that the contribution of nurses ' vigilance to patient safety may be effectively communicated and
Nurses are critical for promoting health in the society. The profession is highly flexible, since they specialize in diverse operations in the medical field. Registered nurses, for instance, are responsible for the administration of medicine and inoculations to patients (American Nurses ' Association, 2000). Additionally, these professionals observe, record, and enlighten doctors of any changes in a patient’s health. Nurses interpret and evaluate diagnostic examinations to determine an individual’s condition, as well as making the necessary adjustments in patient treatment plans on their health progress.
1. HEALTHCARE INFORMATICS Healthcare informatics in nursing improves decision making, it helps in detecting changes in patient’s condition which could be for the nurse to call rapid response team or to intervene through modified early warning system (MEWS) which assigns numerical value to the vital signs reading and calculates a score that indicates the severity of the sickness and tendency of escalating to critical condition. Nurse is able to locate essential equipment such as IV pumps, infusion pumps, EKG machines, portable computers with the click of a button when wireless technology and radio frequency identification (RFID) thereby improving patient care at the nursing level. The nurse could equally use RFID technology to track surgical
Continuous relationships with the care team, individualising of care and providing care that anticipates the patient’s needs all achieve best care delivery. (Wagner et al 2001). However the course of any chronic disease is determined by personal attributes, social influences and the professional treatment delivered. Yet, nurses and healthcare professional can try to maintain steady control of any chronic disease by accurate management. The TM model can be used along with other nursing models of care for effective
With reference to Shaw, effective nurses should inquire, discuss, and even disagree with physician if it is necessary to assist patients. As a future nurse, I believe I would constantly acquire the latest pathological knowledge so that I could post enquiries and report syndromes to aid doctors to give right diagnosis. Moreover, I would also pay attention to patients’ physical need such as propping the patients who cannot walk by themselves, remind patient to take medicine on time, and report the doctor immediately when the patient has significant change of vital sign. These seem to be simple action. However, Association of Hong Kong Nursing Staff revealed that the average nurses-patient ratio was 1 to 11 in public hospitals, which higher than international standard 1 to 6, while doctors in hospitals work up to 80 hours per week rather than the usual 44 hours, with very little time between shifts or for meal breaks while on duty .
Therefore, I considered that it is necessary to clarify the appropriate way of nursing records in order to use them effectively. Our ultimate goal is to clarify the current situation of nurses' electronic health records from the three perspectives of nursing practice, education, and research in order to develop an application model of nursing records more effectively. This application model is intended not just to show the recorded content for improving the content of nursing records but to visualize the appropriate way of nursing records in order to use them for the practice, education, and research of nursing.
Nursing research is a systematic review designed for develop knowledge about concerns related to nurses which containing nursing education, nursing practice, and nursing administration (Polit & Beck, 2006). Based on Tingen et al (2009), nurses able to deliver a good quality care for patient by applying evidence based practice through research. Besides, nurses have to be knowledgeable in research and evidence based practice to provide the best outcome for the patients. In addition to nursing research aimed for influencing the immediate arrangement of nursing and health care to beneficiaries of nursing care, nursing research likewise is expected to create learning in regions that influence nursing care forms by implication.
Initial Discussion Post: •How will the RN update the plan of care? The RN would first review the goals and outcomes of the patient care plan. The next step would be to collect Reassessment Data, " Assess the client response to the interventions. "(pg.
The National Institute of Nursing Research The National Institute of Nursing conducts research to improve the health and well being of the population at large as they incorporate both clinical and research training on health and illness across all ages to prevent diseases, while they manage and improve the care of each individual. The goal of the research facility is to apply new technologies to promote health while developing scientist of the future ("National Institute of Nursing Research," 2011). There are three current methodologies to research; quantitative, qualitative, and outcome research. Examining all three closely reveals a complex distinction in methods of research. The quantitative method focuses on the formal, objective process
