Framework for Praxis The author is pursuing the Pediatric Primary Care Nurse Practitioner (PNP-PC) course. In order for nurses to be able to assess and manage their patients, they should be able to effectively synthesize knowledge (Higgs, Burn, & Jones, 2011). This paper aims to provide a succinct discussion of the ideological, theoretical, and ethical framework that influences the author’s praxis. Furthermore, this paper will discuss how the author’s philosophical viewpoint and theoretical framework affect how she views her phenomenon of interest on newborn screening for critical congenital heart defects (CCHD).
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
This paper addresses two articles, Evidence-based approaches to breaking down language barriers by Allison Squires and Rapid response teams: What’s the latest? by Shirley A. Jackson. The first article discusses how language creates a barrier between nurses and patients and how to possibly overcome these barriers. Squires talk about how the barriers affect patient care negatively and the consequences of miscommunication such as re-admissions and non-adherence to medication regimen.
While, parents or guardians are authorized, to decide for treatment for minor patients, however, medical decisions must be based on the child’s best interest, such treatment effectiveness, possibilities of additional suffering from side effects, and overall prognosis. Furthermore, healthcare professionals and related ethical issues can affect also decision making in childhood cancer. Accordingly, this paper aims to discuss number of key themes related to decision making in pediatric oncology; physician’s role in decision making in childhood cancer; parents’ participation in treatment decisions and the factors that might affect their decisions; parent’s view of participation of child in clinical trials. Following this, I will look at particular aspects with ethical dilemmas: refuse of treatment, do not resuscitate (DNR) in children, and end-of-life care for children. Finally I will offer own thoughts and hypothesis about
In P5 of my work I am going to outline and discuss the strategies and procedures used in health and social care to reduce the risk of abuse. The aim of the independent safeguarding Authority (ISA) was established under the Safeguarding Groups Act 2006 to protect children and vulnerable adult to those who might abuse them. The strategy in order to achieve this is through mentoring people who seek access through their work, paid, unpaid and voluntary. As they have to be registered under the vetting and barring scheme and will be checked against one of two barred list. Reference can be defined as being information that is written by a pervious employer that tells the workplace what type of person the individual is and if their experience is valid and if they have the experience to work with vulnerable adult.
Kristen explained, “As the patient’s condition improves education becomes an essential part along with referrals to community agencies, and ideally involving the family in the release process.” A variety of services are available depending on the patient’s needs to assist with their success after their release from the hospital. For example, if the patient has suicidal ideation or any other psychological disorders the hospital will perform a psychological evaluation and begin the patient’s treatment plan before their release. There are several educational objectives that need to be covered with the patient before his discharge in order to assist the overall management of their conditions. These include; recognizing signs and symptoms of heart failure, managing those symptoms, management of medications, smoking cessation, and abstaining from
There are different models to mental health offering a different explanations, approaches and interventions. The Diseased/Medical/Biological model has the belief that mental abnormalities are caused by biochemical, physiological or genetic causes, and therefore, treatment is through medical procedures such as drug therapy, ECT or brain surgery. Genetics studiessuggest that mental health problems are inherited from parents and there is evidence to support this. Neuroimaging states that structural changes in the brain can cause mental illness.
This study investigated the impact of an intensive, short-term program that incorporates the principles of sensory integration and relationship-based therapies with extensive parent collaboration. The goals were to identify measures sensitive to change and explore the relation between sensory modulation characteristics and change in behavior after intervention. (p. 2) Pediatric occupational therapist who work with children with sensory-based issues often use relationship based therapies,
Grief Counseling for Pediatric Nurses I believe that pediatric nurses should have ready access to grief counseling and support groups in order to help them easily deal with the loss of patients. Pediatric nurses are not just expected to be a health care provider; they are also supposed to be a caring person who is able to make the scary environment of a hospital feel more like a home to these children. These individuals are around these children almost 24/7 and they do tend to get attached, but when that child is taken away from them, it is going to affect them both personally and in their work. Access to things such as grief counseling and support groups within the hospital setting will help pediatric nurses be able to go into a case more

Lastly, the tool is also used as an outcome measure for program evaluation of pediatric rehab services or for therapeutic programs in an educational settings. This tool is criterion and norm referenced. PEDI tool measures the capability and performance of functional activities in three domains; self-care, mobility and social function.
In unit two, a few sources that have been read discuss an individual’s remission while incorporating their patient narrative to the medical field. This can explain the relationship between narrative and medicine, since individuals have the chance to share their story about their state of remission, and it must be in relation to their progress with their doctor and others in the medical field that had a part in the individual’s remission as well. The idea of remission occurs most bluntly in G. Thomas Couser in “Recovering Bodies: Illness, Disability, and Life Writing.” In this article, Couser explains the concept of “the remission society” (10). In this writing, he discusses the fact that medicine has helped in remission throughout the years, but the medicine itself that gave the life back to the person cannot immediately give their life significant meaning, because that is the individuals responsibility, and sometimes individuals are not completely cured of their illness.
