My personal philosophy of nursing is based on holistic care which includes the mental and physical health of a person. I believe examining the whole picture and variables that play into a patient’s health is necessary to successful outcomes as well as effective communication. I think of Peplau because her theory discusses interpersonal relations and I am a firm believer in developing a strong, therapeutic nurse-patient relationship. Without a strong nurse-patient relationship, patient’s may not have the trust they should, therefore will not learn the tools necessary to be able to care for themselves. I strive each day in practice to develop strong nurse-patient
Some reasons might be plain to recognize by the nurse, but sometimes the reasons might linger in the subconscious. Therefore, people might not always be aware of all the reasons for choosing the profession. However, developing great skills at the nursing profession requires the knowledge of why the particular profession appeared appealing to the individual. Personal philosophical statement Nursing is rooted in the caring attitude to help people in need to become healthy again with regard to the patient’s cultural standard of health, mentally as well as physically. Furthermore, nursing means knowledge of the current evidence-based practice to help a patient with the highest quality of care, but respecting patient’s wishes, if the wishes differ from current evidence-based care.
Introduction: Being an allied healthcare professional requires not only the ability to meet standards and to be able to work in a consistent professional manner, but also to be person centred, compassionate and a good listener. Person centred care means that radiographers consider the individual, health needs, social background or lifestyle in order to find the best outcome for the patient. Diagnostic radiographers interact with people at the time in their lives when they are most likely to feel vulnerable, feel uncertain about their future or anxious about results. Therefore, person centred care can be achieved through good communication skills such as verbal and nonverbal which can aid the relationship between the radiographer and the patient to promote person-centred care. Also, it is good practice to involve patient into decision-making as it empowers patients and helps radiographers to perceive things from the patient’s point of view.
Firstly, it assures sense of fairness in health care system because one major goal is to meet patients’ needs. Again, it empowers patients to seek consultation with the physician of their choice and to play an active role in staying and getting healthy More importantly is the fact that it gives patients a way to solve any problems that they may have. 6.1 PERSONAL CONTEXT I feel that patients have the right to considerate and respectful care; bill of right is an impetus to this assertion. I strongly belief that nurses should be conversant with the elements of bill of right and work in tandem with such while discharging their professional
In addition, Create an environment of trust by respecting patient privacy encourages the patient to get care, to be honest, when as much as possible, this stimulates the patient to accept the full health for conditions that might be stigmatizing for example: public health, reproductive, sexual, and psychiatric health concerns, confidentiality ensures that private information will not be disclosed to family or employers without their consent. To avoid misunderstandings, such as the words of some patients, but I suppose you would deal with it as a secret between us! Can the nurse prevention of this misunderstanding by being candid as possible with the patient about his health. However, privacy and confidentiality between nurse and
Personal strengths are actions or tasks that a person can perform well. These strengths comprise talents, skills and knowledge.

Our personal strengths are that vital aspect that makes us unique as individual, and it is part of the value we offer to the world around us.
I chose this competency because it teaches me that I need to have a positive self-esteem and a great attitude towards my patients, colleagues and every situation in order to be able to provide holistic quality care. 2. The article taught me that fitness to practice, includes being accountable and responsible to cope with stress and know how to balance your duty to care for patients; and an equal duty to ensure that fitness to practice competently does not threaten the safety of patients, co-workers or oneself (p. 8). 3. The article widened my understanding that if I am not mentally or physically fit; it’s impossible for me to care for another and meet their needs and can put patients in danger due to errors.
Often times, a patient wants a doctor or nurse that maintains professionalism, but also shows compassion and empathy (Cohn, 2010). A doctor or nurse must carry out their duty to provide the best care possible and make sure their patient feels as though they are a part of the care plan. However, it is also important to maintain empathetic when a patient is having a hard time dealing with a diagnosis. A great way to balance these two, is to be empathetic for the patient’s circumstance, but to also not be too affected emotionally. It is alright to sometimes be emotional with patients, but the patient should not have to feel like they have to support their doctor or nurse.
Moral principles are important in the medical field in order to keep the emotions of healthcare professionals from clouding their judgement. These two principles are necessary in order to provide adequate care for all patients, family members included. When these principles practiced, less fallacies are likely to occur in the medical
In reference to this, Watson argues out that in a situation where the nurses end up treating the patient by offering assistance with reference to fulfillment of their personal needs, such an ailing individual ends up gaining recognition as well as experiencing love and affection thus leading them to gain a great amount of energy that leads them to self-actualization (Watson & Woodward, 2010). She further indicates that when nurses focus on lower order needs they are not in a position to guarantee optimal health to patients (Clark, 2016). Instead, they should focus on higher order needs. It is, therefore, apparent that caring and healing moment not only enables an individual to gain an emotional connection but also manages to ensure that they reflect on themselves; a
After planning the activity chosen, the setting is what sets the scene and image of the deliverance of the activity to fit the atmosphere of the Care home.

A Case Study: Healing and Autonomy Introduction Healing is the process of restoration of normal biological body functioning from a previously experienced illness. Autonomy is the respect of the patient decision on his/her fate. It is a basic right of the patient and the physician ruling ought to abide by it. This makes it mandatory for the health care provider responsibility to respect this patients ' right. For the process of healing to be amiably achieved there should be a cooperation of the patient and the nurse this elevates the confidentiality of the patient and make it easier of the functionality of the nurse.
Instead of using restraints our facility provides patient care observers to be with the patient to ensure their safety. Educating the staff on alternatives is essential to reduce the use of restraints such as providing a quiet environment and fall precaution measures. Additionally, care must be individualized and we encourage visits from family and friends. The caregivers must give priority to respect for the dignity of the residents. I agree the family and care giving team must work together in the decision-making process.
From the lessons learned from the patients-centered medical home (PCMH), the NCQA was motivated to develop an accreditation process for ACOs. The NCQA tried to accommodate the lessons that they learned from the PCMH programs so as to develop a very excellent program that recognizes that provisions of the high-quality primary care are the foundation of good health. NCQA also recognizes that although the evaluation of the result is very imperative, it is also critical to assess the ACOs using evidenced based criteria. Through these measures, the organizations can learn more about what is needed and what they need to do so that they can be compliant. They can also learn the key elements required for successful transformation of the ACO.
