The idea of family centred care was first mentioned in the Platt report of 1959, then reiterated by Casey’s Model of Nursing 1988 which referred to allowing parents to complete the ‘basic’ cares whilst the nurse supports and educates the parents. The Institute for Patient- and Family-Centred Care (IPFCC) outline the core concepts as dignity and respect, information sharing, participation and collaboration. Family centred care is about “Bringing the perspectives of patients and families directly into the planning, delivery, and evaluation of health care, and thereby improving its quality and safety.” (IPFCC,
The purpose of this assignment is to explore the principles of empowerment in nursing practice. The essay will define what health promotion is and how it is important to empowerment and how they both link. I will also be discussing my artefact and what health promotion models have been researched and used throughout my essay and in the making of my artefact and the reasoning behind the decisions. The main topic of this essay will be focusing on how I can empower someone with a learning disability to communicate using a communication board to express their wishes and needs to the medial staff. During the late 1980’s the theme of empowerment was being discussed within many nursing literatures to link how empowering the patients, nurses, doctors and staff members was important to building a supportive team.
In health education for example, some of the main players - as regards health systems components- are mainly the human resources for health ( nurses educating pregnant mothers on breastfeeding and health facility delivery), service delivery ( health education sessions offered to groups in a specialised clinic) and pharmaceutical and technology used to treat an infected patient. Health promotion, however, goes beyond boundaries of the health facility and/or health systems and into the community; infrastructure improved to allow supply of clean water to prevent cholera and other water-borne diseases, media announcements for mass screening campaigns against e.g. cervical cancer, policies and laws formulated to govern road safety, police officers tasked with ensuring motor vehicle safety, and many more. Regardless of the varied scope of the health education and promotion, theories of socio-cognitive behaviour change can still be used at all levels of health interventions (7, 8). Both health education and health promotion are swallowed up in the term health promotion and both are considered during health
CHAPTER THREE 3.0 RESEARCH METHODOLOGY 3.1 Research Design A cross sectional descriptive study design was used in order to give a detailed description of the nurse’s knowledge, practice and challenges on the care of critically ill patients. In a cross sectional study, data were collected at one point in time, the phenomena under the study was captured during one period of data collection (Polit and Beck, 2008). Quantitative approach was used to collect and analyze data from the study participants; data was quantified in numerical values, percentages to enable statistical inferences. A quantitative method was chosen because it enables the researcher to test the relationship and examine cause and effect among dependent and independent variables.
The last past eight weeks have provided an opportunity to achieve several program outcomes that will prepare me as my role of nurse practitioner. This course NR 602 has provided me with an opportunity to meet the MSN program outcome #6, the MSN Essential VII, and the Nurse Practitioner Core Competencies # 8. These program outcomes will institute a base upon which care can be delivered with quality. Program outcome # 6 examined ways to apply legal, ethical and human caring principles to situations in advanced practice nursing. There were several case studies that afforded a chance to implement this outcome.
This assignment will explore a critical reflection on cultural competence and diversity in healthcare, through a reflection of practice which took place in a neonatal unit in the North West. The reflection guide will be Driscoll's (2007) model of reflection. The content of the four Nursing and Midwifery Council [NMC] (2016) domains of Professional Values: Communication and Interpersonal Skills; Nursing Practice and Decision Making; as well as Leadership, Management and Teamwork will inform to the need of how these should inform for professional development in nursing practice. The Papadopoulos, Tilki and Taylor model for the development of transcultural competence (1998) will summarise the cultural awareness; cultural competence; cultural knowledge
Established in 2002 by the Joint Commission to address the issue of safety in healthcare were various patient safety goals which dealt with many safety problems the accredited organization might face including medication and communication errors. The Joint Commission has also established National Patient Safety Goals for accredited organizations to follow in order to encourage patient safety by reevaluating the sentinel events data collected every year and revising the goals by omitting achieved goals and creating new ones. Hospitals evaluated by the Joint Commission must demonstrate compliance with the NPSGs as part of the accreditation process (Ellis & Hartley,
Wound, ostomy and incontinence care needs are growing, especially in the home care setting, and this will allow me to apply for positions that are more tailored to what I wish to specialize in. In an article published by Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins, a study was done on the outcomes of wound healing on home health care patients, which reported that wounds cared for by a WOC nurse resulted in 78.5% of wounds healing compared with 36.3% when care was provided by general staff nurses (Westra, Bliss, Savik, Hou, & Borchert, 2013, p. 135, 136).
This essay is going to reflect on my own management and leadership style in delivering patient care. It will discuss the effectiveness of the other leadership and management style within the multi-disciplinary team and its impact on delivering patient care. I will use as an example, my previous experience back home as a nurse and compare it to my current experience in the United Kingdom (UK). This will show my strength and weakness as well as my new learning skills, which have changed my practice. I will be using Driscoll model of reflection (2007) to guide my thought and refine my ideas.
The purpose of this review of literature article was to create a conceptual framework model of practice recommendations and interventions that can be used to acknowledge the benefit of expanding nurse practitioner scope of practice (SOP); develop a uniform nationwide consensus APRN SOP; and reveal evidence that shows that poor patient healthcare outcomes can occur as a result of restricted NP scope of practice due to barriers created by either physician-related, political, and/or organizational opposition. According to Poghosyan, Boyd & Clarke (2015) over a 4-month period articles were used to build the model. Policy papers, research studies, including original research and reviews, and reports focused on nursing workforce in the United
