Firstly, assessment of patients to determine if the patient is diabetic is done Hemoglobin (HbAlc) to determine its level. According to Yang et al. (2010), the normal range is from 5.9% to 6.4%. Diabetes patients should be provided with information about diabetes and the adverse effects of to the body if not controlled. The Peplua model of nursing theory is used to develop a trusting and working relationship where by the patient engages in the self-care due to The nurse and patient work together so both become mature and knowledgeable in the process (Peplau, n.d.). As outlined in the health belief model, the patient perceives the susceptibility and threat to the life of untreated diabetic condition (As cited in Peplau, n.d). The psychiatric patient who has established interest in engaging in self-care through a program provided for psychiatric patients with diabetes. To explore provisions and resource provided by various interdisciplinary members of the community. Innitial period of two to three weeks is advocated with supervision ,to implement change on a diet to nursing theories approach, is given opputnity to in the community (Hultsjö, & Hjelm, 2012). The method for using the community stakeholders is easier and affordable. Diabetes is applicable when the community observes the diet, practise procedure, and medical prescription. The aspect reduces the arte of diabetes at a higher rate than any other method. The community methods will include the social organization of food in a residential care facility because it is a part of the community strategies.

The term six research theory course, NURS 495, emphasized the importance of nurse leadership and how nurses can influence positive changes in health care delivery to patients with chronic illness. It also explored the contradictions that exist in nursing practice and encouraged the students to develop a critical and pragmatic approach to client care. The co-requisite clinical course, NURS 499, integrated nursing theory and current best practice on an acute care nursing unit at Medicine Hat Regional Hospital. In this consolidated learning analysis, I will explore a nursing practice event that will illustrate the major issues surrounding the treatment of competing mental health comorbidities in a patient with hoarding behaviors.

Position on Topic: (1) Points ________________ Yes, I feel that as long as the nurse participates in a program that includes requirements of regular attendance at support group meetings, personal and active involvement with a 12-step sponsor, and close contact with a case manager or monitor of an alternative program, she should be allowed to return to work.
Diabetes.co.uk- The global diabetes community [online]. (2016).This shows that Subject X’s reading is at a high risk of developing type 2 diabetes. There are many risk factors for diabetes, being overweight, having a large waist measurement, family history and a high asting Blood Glucose reading. Subject X has some of these risks and therefore increases his problems greatly.

Know the benefits of online schools for nursing assistant over the traditional schools Nowadays, online class registrations have been considerably growing every year, and enrollment for the online CNA courses is no exception. Although becoming a certified nursing assistant does not need any experience or special training, getting a certification in the discipline will be quite helpful. This is because if you would like to work as a nursing assistant in any facility that recognizes Medicare, state and federal laws will need this certification. How can you get the certification?
Not all heroes wear capes, they wear scrubs too. The career I plan to pursue is a nurse practitioner. A nurse practitioner diagnoses and treats illnesses, independently or as part of a healthcare team, such as hospital. Their focus is disease prevention towards their patients and everyone. Nurse practitioners may order, perform, or interpret diagnostic tests such as lab work and X-rays, they may also prescribe medication.
We will provide free glucose meters and strip to the individuals with diabetes to be able to measure their A1C level. We intend that this measurement will be done every two to three month to be able to determine their average blood level. According to the America diabetes association, the A1C level of diabetes patient is good to measure because it helps professionals to know how oxygen flow into the blood cells and also help to indicate the amount of sugar stick in the red blood cell (RBC). The goal for this measurement is help us know how well the patients are able to manage their diabetes by healthy
The Indiana State Board of Nursing (2011) defines advanced practice nursing as a registered nurse who has attained advanced knowledge and skills through an organized program of study. The three categories of study include nurse practitioner, certified nurse mid-wife, or clinical nurse specialist. National certification is not required for nurse practitioners completing an accredited graduate program. However, if the continuing education is part of a certificate program then a national certification is required. Although certification is not required in Indiana, Riley Hospital for Children nurse practitioners are required to certify within one year of employment.
This is proving to be inefficient and costly to healthcare and society as a whole (Lupari, Coats, Adamson & Crealy, 2011). Many former hospital based services including management of newly diagnosed diabetes is managed in ambulatory care (Haughton & Stang, 2012). There is a policy that has recently developed will have a huge impact on primary care nursing.
In the East Harlem community, many people devalued the severity of diabetes due to personal aspects. For example, one woman said how her life is too stressful to worry about the illness. The toll of living high demand-low control lives is greater in the lesser affluent neighborhoods. Their daily lives are often too hectic for them to participate in a healthier lifestyle. Diabetes adds to this stress because residents voiced that the out of control sugar levels made them more stressed.
Moreover, I held the health education for them and helped them learn to use the blood sugar monitor correctly. I also presented several examples to explain the seriousness of exacerbating diabetes. Patients will have many complications, such as diabetic retinopathy, diabetic cardiomyopathy, diabetic nephropathy and etc. Furthermore, I demonstrated how the blood sugar monitors work face to face. Make them understand that it is very useful and convenient for them to know well their blood sugar level, what is more, to control their health at any
Family theories have been used throughout the history of nursing to help guide patient care and provide the best patient outcomes. Certain theories may be more applicable to the specific patient encounter; however, each theory has benefits and drawbacks to their use. The purpose of this paper is to examine two selected theories, comparing their strengths and weaknesses. I will also discuss a theoretical family in relation to one theory, and how that theory can be best integrated into the care provided by an Advanced Practice Nurse (APN). Description of Theories
Through the readings of the last week, I have learned a great deal about ‘Service Learning’. It is a combination of teaching and learning approach for teaching public health issues and improving health literacy. It is an integration of academic learning and community services to strengthen civic engagement. It is helpful in promoting cooperation, teamwork, civic responsibility, solving complex problems etc. (Service learning, 2016).
These are: diagnosis &early intervention; rational use of treatment techniques; continuity of care; wide range of services; consumer involvement; partnership with families; involvement of the local community; and integration into primary health care. The idea of community-based mental health care is a global approach rather than an organizational solution. Community-based care means that the large majority of patients requiring mental health care should have the possibility of being treated at community level. Mental health care should not only be local and accessible, but should also be able to address the multiple needs of individuals.
The patient and healthcare provider must work together to identify problematic thoughts and behaviours of the patient and then agree to set goals on how to combat these thoughts and behaviours. This is a partnership between patient and healthcare provider as opposed to the healthcare provider simply telling the patient what to
