The assessment of risk is a critical part of child welfare advocacy. The review of instruments of different instruments for assessing risk and safety in child welfare focuses on instrument reliability, validity, outcomes, and use with children and families of color. The evaluation of risk assessment instruments generally includes broad categories of areas related to abuse and neglect, behavioral descriptions, procedures to determine levels of risk, and standardized forms to record this information (Rycus & Hughes, 2003). In the process of screening for a case study, instruments are used to determine if the child or family needs further assessment, treatment, or intervention services. In evaluating the Van Sise family I have found that the following
The following reflection piece is based on an event which I experienced during my internship placement. Johns model of reflection will be used for this assignment. The reflection is based around my own personal experience with a terminally ill patient. It focuses on one main issue, providing hope for patients and how I felt about it. 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.

Family theories have been used throughout the history of nursing to help guide patient care and provide the best patient outcomes. Certain theories may be more applicable to the specific patient encounter; however, each theory has benefits and drawbacks to their use. The purpose of this paper is to examine two selected theories, comparing their strengths and weaknesses. I will also discuss a theoretical family in relation to one theory, and how that theory can be best integrated into the care provided by an Advanced Practice Nurse (APN).
Family structure talks about family arrangement and composition which includes the roles and interactions (Edelman, 2014). According to Minuchin (2012), the family structural theory emphasis on the important of the family structure and its changes that occurs and how the individuals in the family relate collectively over time to put up and accept each other. Minuchin says further that a well-functioning family will choose how to solve and handle the family experience with a positive outcome. The goal of a structural family is to express the strengths in each other in critical moments, and helping each other through it. Developmental theory is the methods used as the viewpoint of family tasking and development through phases of life (Edelman, 2014).
Once the nurse and family have identified family strengths and areas for growth and change, the family should prioritize its goals. The commitment of all family members directed toward achieving a goal is crucial to the family’s success(). The self-care contract will ultimately benefit everyone in the family in several ways. First, the contract is tangible, and therefore can be held in their hand although it allows room for changes. People tend to do better with flexibility, and information they can see. Second, the contract will outline all goals but also list the expected behaviors of the family. We would make sure that the contract reflected realistic family goals that are obtainable. For example, the contract would include the family attending the diabetic educator as a unit, adhering to family meals that are healthy, and sticking to an exercise regimen. In addition providing appointment support, making sure that medications and glucose monitoring is occurring. The family self-care contract will help hold the family accountable thereby increasing the chance of
The purpose of this paper is to select a family and enter into a contract to determine the needs of the family. Five visits spanning five weeks helped identify family interests, needs, and concerns. The paper identifies three priority family needs determined during family visits. It utilizes evidenced based educational materials to teach the family based on the three needs identified. The paper identifies interventions for each need utilizing evidence based practice and education. It evaluates the interventions and examines any adaptations used. The contractual relationship is terminated on the final visit and appropriate referrals
Play is when a child or anyone for that matter can be inventive, creative and be free to do what they want during play. They can do what they think when playing, getting across the way they feel. Play is possibly the one main process which can let your imagination roam freely and forgetting about reality. I will also be discussing theorists and their theories associated with play, evaluating and assessing it 's effect on practice. Children are greatly affected by their play, as it can increase their holistic development and general everyday skills. "Play is so critically important to all children in the development of their physical, social, mental, emotional and creative skills that

The following nursing diagnosis’ is based off of our families weaknesses and strengths. It is important for the family to know their strengths and problems to limit potential problems in the future like: conflicts between family members and family stability. The most important problem that K. S. faces is caregiver role strain. While S. S. is at work and going to school full-time, K. S. is busy taking care of the day care and their two daughters, M.

Nurses play an essential role in the healthcare industry. The nurse workforce is made up of licensed nurses: registered nurses (RNs), licensed vocational nurses (LVNs) and licensed practical nurses (LPNs), along with nurse aides. Registered nurses are responsible for assessments of patients’ needs, development of care plans, medication administration, and treatments, while licensed vocational nurses perform specific care under the delegation of the registered nurses and supervisions. Nursing aides perform activities of daily living (unskilled attention) to the patient.
