Mr. Eric Maisel once said “Creativity is not a talent or ability. It is the fruit of a person’s decision to matter.” In his book, “Become a Creativity Coach Now!,” Mr. Maisel has written countless books and articles on how one does not need to have a certain ability or talent to achieve things. In his article, “The Smart Gap” published in Psychology Today, he talks about how a person doesn’t have to be the smartest person in the world to achieve things. Eric Maisel manages to talk about the subject of not being as smart as other people in a way that makes you understand and want to try better, but it also makes you feel bad about yourself.
At Grace Hospital, we work to respect the wishes of our patients through self-determination and patient-driven care through the involvement of patients and their families in the patient’s plan of care. As a social worker at Grace Hospital, I work from a strength-based, anti-oppressive framework. It is important for me to understand each patient’s ecosystem (i.e. support system), their own personal values and beliefs, and the knowledge and skills that they possess. By working from this framework, I am trying to develop a mutual trust and respect for one another which enables me to work together with the patient to develop an appropriate plan of action to help resolve their identified issues and concerns. When the clinical care team is working with a patient, we strive to provide them with all of the information and options to allow them to make an informed decision.
Professional Presence and Influence Being able to promote a positive healing experience for patients is a significant responsibility for nurses. What heals one patient, may not work for another patient. Being equipped to identify what part is vital for each patient’s healing is not an easy task. Understanding different approaches to medicine, how different personality types function, how to be mindful rather than distracted, and what promotes an optimal healing environment are essential facets to provide exceptional care.
After watching the Ted Talks Women video of Joan Halifax, I learn that they are many different components when it comes to the true meaning of empathy. I have gained a new found understanding and appreciation for the word compassion and its true meaning. Unfortunately, not everyone that works on the health care field has compassion. I been working in the medical field for 9 years and is very hard and sad to say but I have encounter a few medical providers that they have lack of compassion when it comes to patients and their situations.
The environment a person was grown is could affect the way he practices delay. Delayed-gratification impacts on the future of a person. In the article “Who Holds the Clicker?”, during the early performance of psychosurgery “the surgery was being used to ‘cure’ everything from mental retardation to homosexuality to criminal insanity” (Slater ). Whatever the society deemed normal was implanted in a person regardless if the problem was a disease or a birth disorder; resulting in a change that was unnecessary. The environment can affect a person’s identity positively or
Humans are extremely capable beings. We excel at taking risks and being successful, thus we all have the ability to create, prosper and accomplish. But one thing is for certain… We know nothing about patience. Patience is an everlasting virtue, which, sadly, humanity ignores.
From these realizations I have concluded that the professional nursing theories which most align with my own philosophy is a combination of Jean Watson’s theory of human caring and Rosemarie Parse’s theory of human becoming. Watson’s theory of human caring outlines the science behind caring as a driving force and framework for practice in nursing. It explores the concept that “humanities address themselves to deeper values of the quality of living and dying, which involve philosophical, ethical, psychosocial and moral issues” (Watson, 2005, p. 2). Within her original text, Watson outlined 10 “carative factors” which help integrate the science of healthcare field with the more holistic nuances of nursing and the phenomena that is the human
This philosophy reflects the lesson in Matthew 7:12, which states, “ So everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets”. I personally value the characteristic of kindness, which encompasses active listening, professionalism, and accountability. In order to be kind, nurses must actively invest time in their patients and express to them that they care for them and their family members. My belief is that if my family member was in the hospital I would want the nurse to show kindness to them, therefore I will show compassion to others family members. I value the art of kindness, because sometimes it is not easy to show love to patients who are combative or disrespectful.

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.
Empirical Referents Empirical referent studies support Watson’s theory by affirming the existence of a positive relationship between patient satisfaction and nurse caring behaviors in numerous clinical settings. Nursing education plays a significant role in the achievement the caring concept and is accentuated throughout the nurse's professional career (Labrague, Mcenroe-Petitte, Papathanasiou, Edet, & Arulappan, 2015). Patient satisfaction is a measurable component used to determine the care received from nurse clinicians. Stroehlein (2016) indicates that although there is a large constituent of many occupations, caring in the nursing occupation assumes an exceptional meaning with a higher purpose. Caring is multifaceted and comparable have determined individuals whose intention is to open the eyes of the society through rendering high quality patient care (Stroehlein, 2016).
So, the department of health came up with a new strategy, and claimed it as the “compassion in practice”. This strategy had included the 6Cs, and was finalized and released completely within 2016. “the 6Cs are a set of values for all health and social care staff.” (Lesley Baillie, 2017) CARE, COMPASSION AND COMPETENCE Care is the center of the health professional organizations, and the care that we provide to individuals even as practice nurses does help the individual, and help improve the community’s health also. Care defines nurses and defines their work.
Creativity can be defined as the willingness to be courageous, adventurous, daring and to try new things. Creative people take risks and produce some of the best ideas. When designing and making, creative work is likely to bring about original knowledge which will incur risk taking. Innovation and risk taking are skills that are close together, everyone that knows it have to deal with creating something new everyday. Being creative does not only involve the study of art, which is how it has been perceived through the years.
The Big Five Personality Traits are divided into five broad characteristics, which is basically used to describe the variations of human personality.
