‘’Having a conceptual nursing model to practice may enable nurses to gather a detailed database that identifies actual and potential healthcare problems’’ (Capers, 1986). The grid, checklist format is a simple, fast and straightforward assessment guide and can be very useful in practice. Any given ward or healthcare environment may choose to implement a nursing model to guide its practice and philosophy. The theoretical framework of Orem’s model can aid knowledge based practice (Anonymous, 2010). As the model encompasses all aspects of the nursing process and acknowledges deficits that are not only a problem at ward level , but for the person post discharges , it is helpful in delivery quality, holistic, care from admission to discharge, allowing for discharge planning.
Nurse managers connect frontline staff and middle-upper management, ensuring communication is maintained. Therefore, nurse managers can influence the standard of care provided to patients and their families (Cipriano, 2011). This paper will discuss three connected themes and one aspect of each. Communication in a nurse management role, evidence-based practice in quality improvement, and confidentiality regarding information management systems will be discussed. Theme 1: Nursing Management-ISBAR Communication Tool Just as nursing practice requires that all nursing care has a plan and an evaluation, so too does each function of management.
Hamil (1999) can be used to support this, in the essay. I will also use Gibbs (1988) reflective framework to structure this assignment, as it can help with understanding what went well, what did not do so well and how to improve. Whilst reflecting on the clinical experience where dignity was maintained, I will analyse the situation and use literature to validate my findings. Royal College of Nursing, (2008) defines dignity as ‘Dignity is concerned with how people feel, think and behave in relation to the worth or value of themselves and
The venue will be progressive care unit and the medical-surgical unit since both units come under same Nursing director and education nurse. Acceptance from the leadership team and main stakeholders is important to begin the project.

2014, p. 232). With the use of expected utility theory, the process is a simple decision making tree where a process is followed that leads to the decision outcome that will be made (Miers 2016, p. 34). For this theory to be used successfully in decision making, it is important that the healthcare professional who is making the decision is fully aware of all the information need to successfully make a decision and is aware of possible alternatives that may result in a better outcome (Scott et al. 2014, p. 233). An example of nurses using the expected utility theory in decision making is when a nurse has a
Critical Thinking: Tanner (2006), had introduce the term ‘thinking like a nurse’. When I read this article I was wondering what it means and takes to think like a nurse, I am a nurse by profession and yet I don’t even know what it means. In order to be a professional nurse, nurses are required to learn to think like a nurse. To my surprise, to be able think like a nurse, a nurse got to clearly defined and understands what is critical thinking and clinical reasoning. Both terms are powerful terms and these terms explain the mental processes nurses use to make certain that they are doing their most excellent thinking and decision making for their patient’s better outcomes.
The nursing process also called the problem-solving approach originated in 1967 and consists of four stages; assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation (APIE) (Yura and Walsh, 1967). However, Barrett et al (2012) reasons, two further stages need to be considered within the problem-solving approach meaning APIE becomes ASPIRE, the systematic nursing diagnosis and recheck complete the acronym ASPIRE. Barrett et al (2012) also states, to be fully successful in meeting the needs of the individual a nursing model needs to be incorporated in to the process to ensure every aspect of information is considered. McKenna (2006) indicates there are numerous nursing models that are used
The doctor–patient relationship has been and remains a keystone of care. It is the medium in which data are gathered, diagnoses and plans are made, compliance is accomplished, and healing, patient activation, and support are provided. Satisfaction with the doctor–patient relationship is a critical factor in people's decisions to join and stay with a specific organization. There are few types of doctor patient relationships such as the Paternalistic model, Informative model, Interpretative model and Deliberative model. Compliance is the willingness of the patient to work with the doctor, disclose information completely, and adhere to the treatment plan that the doctor presents to the patient.
Introduction Evidence based practice (EBP) is a significant component of nursing care. It provides a framework that involves scientific evidence, clinical expertise and patient values for nurses to ensure the use of the best of clinical decision (Phillips, 2015). According to the Reference Guide to the Syllabus of Subjects and Requirements for the Preparation of Registered Nurse of the Nursing Council of Hong Kong (2014), “Nursing is a caring, enabling, knowledge-based and competence-assessed profession which is dynamic in meeting the changing health needs of the society. The practice of nursing is client-focused and evidence-based.” Therefore education of basic knowledge in conducting research and EBP is involved in syllabus of a registered
(McKinney 1989). There is a sufficient amount of evidence showing that the nature and quality of the patient-clinician relationship is a huge determinant of success of recovery. As physiotherapists, we should use the motivational interviewing strategy to understand our patients needs and desires and then to put a tailored plan in place. Physiotherapists need to recognise the importance of using motivational interviewing to drive behaviour change. The use of open and closed questions, reflective listening and positive body language will show real and genuine appreciation of the patient’s struggles and difficulties.
