The theoretical framework gives a detailed reason to why the highlighted research ques-tion exists. Orem’s self-care deficit theory of nursing is the theoretical framework relat-ing to this research because the theory is further divided into three sub-theories in which requisite are line with the following: Individual stages of development and goals, Health conditions, Developmental states, Energy consumption and expenditure, Atmospheric conditions and also the theory gives room to investigate possible causes of malnutrition alongside nurse’s intervention by assessing the need for care, approaches and required interventions. According Orem in 2001, nursing can be viewed as part of the health sector that provides authorized care to individuals.
The functional part of the CFAM included activities of daily living, as well as expressive components which were comprised of communication, problem solving, and roles (Leahey & Wright, 2016). This model is interesting because it is one of the most commonly used models and was created within the clinical setting. The Chronic Care Model (CCM) is primarily patient-focused and was created to improve the care of patients with chronic medical conditions by allowing the patient to have
It was a satisfying moment as a nursing student to not be afraid and know how to provide safe and preventative care to reduce the risks for falls, such as having my clinical instructor, a colleague and myself to help a client that has fragile bones and was confused because of their medical diagnosis. As well, we can provide proper prevention and infection control by applying correct hygiene care after assisting a client with an infection such as clostridium difficile. What did not go well after this experience is I found out that this client had clostridium difficile and at first, I was scared that now I am at risk and will acquire this infection. Instead, I looked at it as I am overcoming my fear of the different infections and diseases I will be exposed to as a nurse and that is why learning how to perform proper hygiene is very important. This bad thought turned into a learning curve and that nothing will make me not provide safe and effective care to any client.
Effective communication is one of the most fundamental tools of the nursing practice. Communication involves two parties the conveyor and the recipient, in which information is exchanged through personal and interpersonal mediums (verbal and non-verbal forms), allowing the message conveyed to be received and understood. Ultimately effective communication in healthcare reduces barriers constructed by language and cultural differences etc, creating a safe environment for the client in which they can actively participate in positive health-related behaviours. This explanatory synthesis will explore the concept of self- awareness in relation to therapeutic communication and how it significantly influences nurse-client rapports. It will also
More specifically, the person is under nursing care with potential certain limitations and a variable degree of self-care. Additionally, Orem and Taylor (2011) mention four concepts directly related to the major concept of person, consisting of self-care agent, self-care agency, self-care limitations, and the self as self-care agent (p. 39). According to Masters (2015), self-care agency is a learned behavior with the goal to control one’s own development and daily activities necessary to meet personal needs. Self-care agency contains three parts. The first fragment includes the “operational capabilities for persons’ deliberate engagement in self care”, the second requires the identification of capabilities a person needs to engage in self care, and the third one includes the understanding of “the foundational capabilities and dispositions needed for the engagement in any and all forms of deliberate action (Orem & Taylor, 2011, p. 39).
The second competency that resonated with me was the ability to “Demonstrate the use of informatics methodologies to advocate for patient autonomy, dignity and rights and in policy development that would support both the patient and the institution.” 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
When working in an ER it is important to be up to date with what is going on, and remaining calm in stressful situations. It is important to maintain and practice skills that benefit you in your career because those skills make you better at your job. I volunteer at a facility called Universal Healthcare, which is a rehabilitation therapy organization. Working with patients improves my skills, and benefits me because I can use those skills for my future career. The therapist I work with encourages me to ask questions, so I benefit and learn from volunteering.
It is through following the continuum that we can keep functioning and stay sane. 2. Explain how the dimensions interact to contribute to our overall health and quality of life. The health and wellness continuum shows how intertwined our dimensions of health are. If one part of a strand is affected then it can lead to other strands being affected.
Furthermore, they consider problems faced by patients and try to solve them. Given that care is core of nursing performance, perhaps ethical sensitivity of ethical leaders could be considered related to their sense of dutifulness; an attribute
3.1 Personal concept In order to achieve great outcome of individualized or holistic care of patients, effective communication between the nurses and patients is required. Communication is a vital tool in nursing care. The purpose of nurse-patient communication is to create a nurse-patient therapeutic relationship,
