Nursing process provides a framework for clinical decision-making, which helps to guide care and promote critical thinking. Improvements patients participation in care by promoting patient autonomy and individualized care. ADPIE is an acronym that is used to help nurses remember the steps in order: Assessment, Diagnosis, Planning, Implementation, and Evaluation. In the assessment phase, nurses collect subjective and objective data about the patient in a systematic way through observations, interview questions, and physical examinations. Data is collected, organized, verified, and recorded.
The focus of the primary care physician is to focus on the overall health and ensuring the patient receives the necessary medical screenings, risk assessments, provide preventative care, teach healthy lifestyle choices, provide referrals to medical specialist, and evaluate the urgency of medical problems. In the Cortez case, the physician is responsible for Paula’s medical screening and assessment, and provides a referral to a psychiatrist to address Paula’s mental health, since she has a psychiatric diagnosis and are having difficulties with adhering to her medication. Paula needs referral to a gynecologist to ensure she and the fetus are healthy and not threatened by the medications she is prescribed. The gynecologist will also provide
Introduction Nursing is provision of professional care to individuals, families, and communities in order to make them attain, maintain or recover optimal health and resume the good quality of life. Other than the receiving professional training and possessing well-trained therapeutic skills, nurses should also have good ability of interpersonal communication, because during the process of therapy, large amount of communications are involved in it. Nurses and patients will experience an inter exchange of information between each other so as to reach their mutual goals. Hildegard E. Peplau raised the theory of interpersonal relations, the theory explains the phases of interpersonal process and nurses’ roles in different phases, encouraging
In addition, the association between limited health literacy and medication non-adherence in this population will be assessed. Participants’ baseline characteristics will be obtained. Phase 2: Designing an Intervention Mixed methods (quantitative and qualitative) will be utilized to understand in-depth different facilitators and barriers to health communication with cardiovascular disease or diabetes patients having low health literacy. Interviews will be conducted with healthcare providers (physicians, pharmacists, nurses) working with this patient population to explore challenges in communication with patients having limited health literacy and potential means to enhance communication and improve health literacy among these patients. In addition, a survey will be developed by the investigators to explore barriers and facilitators of communication from the patients’ perspective.
Lynne Bibeau, PhD. The focus is on what Crisis Intervention Teams (CIT) bring to the community and how these models help to promote safety in the community. The CIT model has become a very widely accepted program through out many police departments across the country. Through the CIT model police departments are focusing on improving outcomes a better resources and help for the mentally ill individuals officers come into contact with. The emphases on the CIT model for a specific time frame and statistically compared the program outcomes to before the program was implemented.
The nursing intervention is the information and practices provided for helping the type 2 diabetics to learn about mindfulness-based stress reduction techniques to control the blood glucose, blood pressure and reducing body mass index, stress, depression and increasing mindfulness awareness. Intervening variables include age, gender, marital status, religion, education, occupation, family type, dietary pattern, habits of addiction, co-morbid illness, use of antihypertensive/ anti-diabetes medication, attainment of stress management techniques and awareness of mindfulness meditation. If the MBSR intervention is effective, the type 2 diabetic receive enhanced comfort and is achieved by practicing mindfulness-based stress reduction technique. It reduces the negative effects of stress; depression associated with diabetes and improved health related quality of life. Once the comfort is enhanced, the individual is likely to increase the health seeking behaviors by actively practicing mindfulness based stress reduction for better
One of the key responsibilities for nurses is to help the patients in understanding the medical intervention planned for them and the things they can do to assist in their case, including list of things they should and shouldn’t do during the treatment till recovery. Research has shown that some clinical quality measures are strongly related to good nursing care (NorthWestern Memorial Hospital, 2014). They way that a nurse performs each and every activity has a substantial impact on quality of healthcare. This can also be seen in the understanding of patients that a good relationship with a compassionate, well-informed and capable nurse can help in the well-being and effectiveness of the care they
These include among others patterns of consumption of food and drinks, family patterns, culture economic changes and demographic –patterns. Hence adopting health promotion interventions can be used to address these issues. This should be done in schools, hospitals, communities and should be included in health policies. Only the can we solve most of our global health issues wholestically. Nurses need to have the expertise to be good health promoters.
Nurses must explore ways to address the idea of wellness with each patient, and that is done by education and assessments. Nurse’s must have a clear understanding of the perspective of their patient’s health, and how to intervene to improve the overall quality of health for each patient. This is also done by getting a detailed assessment of the patient’s environment. Environment is made up of their social background and history. A patient’s environment is also made up of internal health.
An example which underpins this theory is WRAP, wellness action recovery plan, WRAP is seen a lot in the mental health setting, it is a self-designed prevention process that anyone can use to get well, stay well and make their life the way they want it to be. (REF). In clinical practice the nurse must ensure the group attending the course must consist of different learning styles for it to work effectively.
Patients and their family members should be preferably educated by the community mental health nurse about the illness, its course, and prognosis as well as the efﬁcacy, the potential side effects and costs of various drugs. Other family interventions should include support, problem-solving training and crisis intervention. There was robust and consistent evidence that there was a decrease in the risk of relapse at the end of treatment and up to 12 months following treatment. Moreover, it also reduced hospital admission during treatment and the severity of symptoms both during and up to 24 months following the intervention.
