Clinical research is from acute to chronic care experience throughout life span. It involves health promotion and preventive care for individual, families and communities in different settings. It is important for nursing research to widen the scope in order to have a greater impact in future. The aspect of health promotion and preventive care are very important because some diseases are better prevented than treated and while some changes are irreversible such as aging are part of human experience. Health systems and outcomes research focuses on how health care delivery influences quality, cost and experience of patient.
Also, for nurses to be able to rob shoulders amicably with other health professionals, their educational background, knowledge and skills need to be frequently upgraded. PERSONAL CONTEXT:- Personally, I view staff development program as a utmost important program a nurse must engage herself in periodically, because of scientific and technological advancement in health progress and taking into consideration. The role of nurses in health care industry, a lot of nurses in the past has gain more knowledge after qualifying with continuous exposure to cases, robbing mind with peers and engaging in series of workshops. SOCIAL CONTEXT:- Staff development in nursing services is a program all nurses should be a participant to keep them abreast of new approaches to health care services, enable them to rob shoulder and contribute meaningfully to patient’s care improve professional image and participate scientifically toward achievement of the organisational vision and mission, to be center of excellences. The organisation will also benefit from
As once thought of as mere assistants in the healthcare field, nurses have emerged as patient 's primary care and safety providers. From the evolution of the nursing profession comes two essential themes: patient safety and nurse advocacy. The primary goal for nurses is to provide the best safety for a patient so that they may get the best care possible. Nurses have become advocates for change, adopting new techniques and treatments while ensuring the safety of the patient is upheld and uncompromised. As the role of nurses continues to expand, it is important to remember how the profession has developed and be open-minded to new advancements.
It provides the basis for selecting and implementing nursing interventions. Accurate nursing diagnoses can improve the quality of nursing interventions and lead to better nursing care being provided to the patient (Kurashima et al, 2008). A thorough analysis of the collected data is required in order to make an appropriate nursing diagnosis. Determining the priority of each nursing diagnosis requires clinical reasoning and applied knowledge. The nurse along with other members of the healthcare team then determines the urgency of the nursing diagnoses identified and prioritises care as appropriate.
Sheriff and Van Sell are nursing professors at the Women’s Texas University and Strasen is a nursing director at the University of Texas Southwest. Sheriff, Van Sell and Strasen present research that suggests nurses and physicians are more likely to encourage family presence during resuscitation (FPDR) if there is a written policy addressing specific criteria for the inclusion and exclusion of family during these procedures. The authors provide a framework to use when writing a hospital policy regarding FPDR. The authors identified several common barriers healthcare professionals have about FPDR and found educational programs about the positive outcomes of FPDR could drastically increase the number of physicians and nurses who would encourage
Thus, those who are intending to enter the nursing profession should be prepared to use remote monitoring devices, electronic health record systems or high-tech simulators which will be widely used in hospitals. Each facility can possess different types of technology, so nurses should be ready to master the new systems or equipment. Furthermore, text apps can enable electronic communication within the facility so that nurses can respond more efficiently to the patient needs. With the increase of electronic medical records, hospitals keep track of patient information digitally. Such innovative methods are developed to improve the work routine for nurses, enhance the hospital team collaboration and access to the patient personal information.
Fawcett (2007).The essential element of the nursing metaparadigm are nursing practice, environment, human being and health. Jarrin (2012). Nursing practice is built on nursing knowledge, research, and theory as well as derived from other profession .the goal of nursing practice is expand the nursing knowledge and skills which facilitate to improve the healing, quality of life and meaning of the recipient of nursing care. Willis,Grace,Roy(2008) .Environment is known as human and non-human circumstance which is affecting person, Newman et al,(2008) which includes relatives, friends, other people, health care professionals, as well as cultural, economic and social background. As per the metaparadigm human being is the person who is receiving care.
The National Institute of Nursing Research The National Institute of Nursing conducts research to improve the health and well being of the population at large as they incorporate both clinical and research training on health and illness across all ages to prevent diseases, while they manage and improve the care of each individual. The goal of the research facility is to apply new technologies to promote health while developing scientist of the future ("National Institute of Nursing Research," 2011). There are three current methodologies to research; quantitative, qualitative, and outcome research. Examining all three closely reveals a complex distinction in methods of research. The quantitative method focuses on the formal, objective process
A hybrid staffing grid has been developed to allow both considerations to be accomplished (see Table 4.0, 4.01 and 4.02). The evidence reflects that appropriate nurse staffing is not only crucial for the well-being and safety needs of the staff; it is also essential to the safety of the patients. According to Butler et al., (2011), “Hospital nurse stafﬁng models and patient and staff-related outcomes”, interventions involving hospital nurse stafﬁng models may improve patient results and staff-related outcomes, which applies in particular to the introduction of primary nursing and self-scheduling. CAN Vantage point (2009) “Safe Nurse Staffing: Looking Beyond the Raw Numbers”, has implied when implementing a staffing model, many variables must be included such as
According to the AARP article on the future of nursing; transforming health care, Susan Reinhard and Susan Hassmiller, wrote that for both now and future needs, registered professional nurses and other health professionals must be allowed to practice to the full level of their education and training. They suggested that advanced practice registered professional nurses (APRNs); such as nurse practitioners and midwives can be used to use to solve issues of primary care shortage so that the physicians may be free to take care of more complex medical issues that requires higher medical expertise. Another report by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development working paper in 2010, says that many countries are reviewing better ways to improve the health delivery system by reviewing the roles of nurses and other health care professionals. According to the conclusion of that report, developing new and more advanced roles for nurses might improve access to care and may even cut down cost. (AARP
To ensure the review processes for appeals of a denial of benefits coverage is in compliance of the law in the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) and the Affordable Care Act (ACA). There will also be a new sub-committee formed that will include the referral coordinator to manage the continuous quality improvements to these processes and I will recommend that Mrs. Brown also be included to avoid delays addressing patient issues. The Referral Committee will also review the current policies for referrals and make recommendations to improve the referral system and determine if effective communication exists between physicians and the referral
Goals which include improving staff communication, patient identifiers, and medication safety helps to improve quality care; by improving quality measures we can also reduce costs p4. For example Medicare has stopped payments for hospital based medication errors, measure have been implemented and pressure has been placed of providers to prevent costly errors. As a preventative measure hospitals have placed into effect a computerized physician order entry (CPOE), electronic medication administration record (eMAR), smart pumps and designated areas where nurses can prepare medication
