Furthermore it is important to get feedback so as to understand the patients concerns in regards to the information they are given. In healthcare sadly these skills are not always present. Often patients concerns or worries are never vocalised and received by the healthcare professional. In many cases the patients perception and their individual anxieties at the time are not understood. When providing information to the patient a phlebotomist should be mindful of the particular patients needs and what they would like to know ensuring that they have understood the information given to them.
As a consequence of the boost in communication, significantly less misdiagnoses are experienced. Thus, both the patient and medical facility benefit from the reduction in unnecessary readmissions. This undoubtedly places value on the importance of giving the correct initial treatment to patients through the act of successful interprofessional care. (7) Interprofessional education undeniably develops communication skills throughout the healthcare system. Subsequently, more emphasis is placed on the importance of expanding patients’ knowledge of the treatment that they are to receive and how to refine their self-care and management for the future.
There is no structure to the therapy session and therefore it relies on the client to be heavily involved in the counselling session and this maybe too optimistic for some clients as they are not getting answers, so they may find it hard to progress. According to Seligman (2006) it also “Fails to prepare clients for the real world due to the unconditional positive regard of the
If I am compassionate and relatable to my patients, they are more likely to cooperate with me, allowing me to give them the help that they need. Using the element of liking in a professional environment can be extremely useful. For example, if I am working in a hospital
Nursing Judgment Today I had the opportunity to observe an adult med surg nurse. "The Adult Medical Surgical RN is responsible for managing the care of the adult or elderly patient experiencing general medical conditions or general surgical procedures, which require general assessments related to specific conditions, and general therapies and interventions. The Adult Medical Surgical RN is responsible to the Clinical Manager for assigned Adult Medical Surgical Unit" (Fastaff, 2018). The nurses on this unit are responsible for taking care of patients' post-surgery and even some who are not post-surgery but have complications. I experienced a negative situation today regarding a nurse and medicine administration.
With all the pressure and exhaustion they experience, knowing that they have given their best in rendering quality nursing care towards patient wellness was enough. I would be glad to experience it as well and be able to touch people’s lives and provide the care they need. If given the chance and be admitted in the University of Washington’s BSN program, I would be more than glad to learn more and share what I know in the pursuit of providing innovative patient
it also discusses my feelings, the knowledge I had, my knowledge gaps and what I learnt through literature during my reflection. This assignment also covers the importance of hope for patients and the role hope plays in terminally ill patients. I will also discuss ways in which health professionals can foster hope in terminally ill patients. I was on my placement on an oncology ward. It was my second week on
Upon reflecting on this experience, I feel like I am more confident in handling the situation should it arise again. Reflecting on it has made me realise that not everything I did was wrong and has helped me to explore what I need to improve on. Reflection is important in the nursing profession as it allows us to think about our actions and talk about how we could have carried them out differently (Johns and Burnie, 2013). Reflection plays a big role in developing the student into a nurse (Barbour,
If a doctor does not have the knowledge, no matter how kind he/she is, this will never make a good doctor, but knowledge is not the most important thing to be a good doctor. I think that attitude, compassion and all the skills are as important as knowledge as well. Knowledge can help a person to be a doctor but attitude determines a good doctor. Doctor is never a simple job, there are a lot of things for a medical student to learn in order to be a good doctor but not just the knowledge from the textbooks. Experience determines who we become, therefore I think a medical student should learn and explore new things, and also meet different kinds of people such as from different countries, culture and backgrounds.
In my role as a health coach, I build a trusting relationship with my patients and to gain a deeper understanding of their individual strengths and struggles that they have to overcome. According to DelHousaye & Brewer (2004), leaders cultivate an environment of trust. Creating a trusting environment is essential to the success of my patients in my role as a health coach; if the patients do not trust me then they will not tell me the important details of their situation that impacts their ability to care for their health. During the sessions, I have had patients tell me that they initially thought that I was going to tell them what to do and when, but they realized that I am there to help to overcome their barriers and that they are the one who is in control of their unique
In family members, it might affect elderly people that might require help such as nursing care. As this act was introduced in healthcare setting to help those vulnerable by supplying healthcare service in the community. This enables people to be in the community like home where they can live comfortably and make choice about the way they live and receive the care. In hospital setting, patient will be assessed on their needs and it will act upon decision made by the team. Health- Care Planning Teams are multidisciplinary working parties of officers set up in each District to analyse and assess the needs of the health services (Davies, 1991, p. 9).
