Moreover, I believe that nursing leadership is critical to the lives of nurses. Thus, it is essential that a nurse leader is consistent and knowledgeable on ways to facilitate the development of nursing practice environments that enable nurses to deliver quality nursing care. For such an environment to be met, it is my belief that I will not only be required to advocate quality care but also need to communicate articulately, be a mentor, a visionary, a mentor and a role
This course solidifies all of the previous knowledge and skills from both the didactic and experiential curricula. Students will participate in activities utilizing patient cases that they develop over the course of their APPE rotations. Weekly discussions will draw upon previously learned, as well as new knowledge, highlighting their professional growth and insight in direct patient care. Group and individual active learning exercises, discussions, mini-lectures and Q&A will revolve around the changing and evolving patient(s). Students will be given the opportunity to show case their research projects and present a formal reflection on their comprehensive educational experience.
I am passionate about advocacy. As a nurse and officer, I must often advocate for my patients and the soldiers who serve under my leadership because I recognize keeping them at the center will improve overall outcomes, satisfaction and morale. Despite the challenges and push back I may encounter as an advocate, it is my responsibility to the patient and soldier. The competencies acquired with this specialty will mature my advocacy. Additionally, I will be
An excellent communication skill between nurses and patients is essential for the successful outcome of individualized nursing care of each patient. The ability to communicate
Part 1 Explain why it is important for nurses to use credible and relevant evidence to underpin their clinical practice. (Justify and support answers with credible and relevant evidence whilst adhering to UWS referencing guidance). The role of nurse changes as new research emerges and finds new and improved ways of helping patients to be restored to health. As Aveyard and Sharp (2016) suggested, evidence based practice requires that the approach is clear but also up to date and it based on the best type of evidence available at the point in time. The Nursing and Midwifery Council Code (2015) is to always provide the best possible service related to the best available evidence that is also in line with the patient’s preferences.
Getting the team to work as a team and assisting the team members to deliver their best performance is a crucial role for a nurse leader. As a leader, he or she needs to set clear standards, in order for the team to know precisely what is expected from them in terms of work, quality and safety. The team members need to have clear understanding on ‘why’ and ‘what’ they need to do to achieve the objectives. Here the nurse leader’s role is to ensure explanation is given to the team to gather their support. It is important to get the team members involvements by getting their ideas and opinions.
It is the job of the APN to apply their skills to promote a culture of excellence. Promoting such a culture involves using all aspects of the quality competency. The Nurse Practitioner is in a unique position as a clinician and manager. According to Carney (2011), clinical managers have the capability to ensure the safe, ethical, and high quality of care due to their professional background, which is firmly grounded in ethical healthcare. Therefore, the APN has a distinct set of skills that will ensure positive patient outcomes.
Patient empowerment: Patient empowerment in the international point of view is seen as a portion of the human side of healthcare. To gain the empowerment requires time and patients need to be strong in order to gain greater outcomes. With mutual trust gained from the nurse and patient, both nurse and patients will gain the confident. Being a Malaysian I am proud to say that our Malaysia Ministry of Health, had strongly support patient empowerment and each individual are responsible for their own health. It is believed that, regulations and enforcement activities are the tools to facilitate and enhanced individuals and the communities towards self empowerment.
It is a means of empowering health practitioner and the patient. It is necessary to find out the conditions of nurses and work they perform in a culturally safe way. Like many other subjects in nursing, cultural safety is important to learn from the people of different backgrounds, values, beliefs and experiences to work in a culturally safe way. (nursing review) As need of health care is over growing, it is better to provide health services caring with patient’s values, listening to them with due respecting their
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based psychological therapy. The emphasis is on recognising and modifying negative thoughts and beliefs and maladaptive behaviours, subsequently impacting on mood and emotions. I am a Psychologist and Clinical Hypnotherapist based in Castlebar, Co.Mayo that offers Cognitive Behavioural Therapy sessions to clients based in Castlebar and the wider Mayo hinterland. Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (CBH) is a combination of cognitive, behavioural and hypnosis interventions.
Person centred practice is where all service users should be treated as individuals and their care that they require and support needs should reflect this. Each and every service user will have specific individual needs and their care plans and support should be tailored to suit their needs. By seeing the person as an individual and recognising their diversity puts the individual at the centre of their care. Person centred practice is not only about supporting people with their individual support needs and care but also about getting to know the person, what their likes and dislikes are, what makes them happy and bring them joy, knowing what their values are, family situations, social circumstances and lifestyles.
In a clinical environment, person centred care is an essential approach in order to achieve the best outcomes for the patients individual needs. Person centred care involves taking a holistic approach to healthcare in which multiple factors such as age, beliefs, spirituality, values and preferences are taken into consideration when assessing, treating and caring for a patient (Epstein & Street 2011). It enables the patient to have a more interactive and collaborative approach in their healthcare, share responsibility and maintain their dignity and values. It involves a bio-psychosocial perspective to healthcare as opposed to a biomedical attitude. In order to provide patient centred care, the clinician needs to consider the individual’s needs
My personal philosophy of nursing seeks to incorporate the art of conveying nursing science holistically with care and human dignity. The four nursing metaparadigm concepts are described in relation to nursing as a science and an art and provide the base upon which my view of nursing and my personal philosophy are derived. As a nursing student at UIC, I am well aware of the fact that the best outcome for any patient may not be improvement in health, but rather, a dignified death during the end of life care. End of life care includes a significant quality in care and human dignity.
An essential component of interaction among individuals is communication. This is especially true in healthcare settings where patient safety is contingent on effective communication. Rather than the mere presentation of information to patients, communication is the receiving, giving, and understanding of information between two or more people (Levett-Jones, Oates & MacDonald-Wicks, 2014). Additionally, communication involves two forms verbal and non-verbal wherein verbal communication involves language such as words and non-verbal communication involves body language such as facial expressions, posture, gestures, and others (Glew, 2017). Moreover, rather than linear communication, feedback loops for validation must be utilised for communicating
