(Peate, 2016). Reflection is used endlessly in nursing to help nurses develop their own practice this allows continuous progress within the nursing community. Reflection is a method which is used in both good and bad experiences – authorising nurses to look back on what they did well in a situation in practice and what they could improve on if they were ever in the same scenario. I will also especially be exploring how Ethics influences Quality Nursing Care conveyance in this reflection. I can put all of this into practice myself when I start placement at the end of January.
Using SWOT analysis, the “Strength” would be to motivate and engage registered nurses who are supportive of the management and leadership of the nurse managers. Using eIMR has the potential of reducing healthcare cost and medication error; which can enhance patient safety (Spratt and Dickson, 2088). It can also promote positive attitude of nurses towards computerisation (Kipturgo et al., 2014). “Weakness” in SWOT analysis would be the time and resources required to train the nursing staff in using the eIMR system. Extra budget is needed for training the nursing staff and a new IT support teams is needed for the new system.
A team from operating room staff and I were assigned to identify the key points by observing the intraoperative record (electronic document), next a team determined the causes of the problem and implement a solution. Analyses were performed using Lean and Six-sigma management strategy to examine the process in the operating room and identify the way to proceed to reduce turnover times. SWOT leadership strategy has been used to identify the problem and brainstorming of the team. Nurse mangers must become skilled in implementing organization change and in initiating change within the organization. Nurse leaders must initiate the changes they believe are necessary to strength nursing practice, provide quality care and create a better system.
The following were the initial methods of assessment chosen for this selection plan: resumes, letters of recommendation; job knowledge test, nursing licenses, certifications, letters of recommendation, and reference checks (Heneman et al., 2012). Resumes and letters of recommendation from previous employers are a good starting point to get an overview of potential job applicants’ KSAOs (Heneman et al., 2012). Job knowledge tests are useful assessment methods for skilled positions such as nursing because they evaluate “technical or professional expertise in specific knowledge areas” (OPM, n.d., para. With written or electronic job knowledge tests nurse applicants are tested based on the clinical expertise they acquired throughout their careers (OPM, n.d.). Additionally, nurses are required to hold a license from the state in which they desire to work (OPM, n.d.).
In my future practice, I will frequently update self of therapies and pay more attention to details that the patient identifies as essential for recovery to better help them regain their well-being and ability to perform their daily activities. March 7, 2018. #10. C-3 INFECTION PREVENTION AND CONTROL 1. I choose this competency because as a nurse working with different diagnosis/diseases it is imperative that we have knowledge of how best to prevent and control transmission of pathogenic micro-organisms by demonstrating knowledge and apply exposure precautions as
Also, the Lewin’s model is designed to assist with determining those behaviors that can impede and drive change (Sutherland, 2013). It is for these reasons that I have chosen Lewin’s change model. Lewin’s model for change has three phases (a) unfreezing, (b) movement, and (c) re-freezing (Marquis & Huston, 2015). The feedback, from internal and external sources, is an example of “unfreezing” in Lewin’s Model. During this phase of the process the following steps occur: • Meet with the nursing directors of the
Introduction/Description The purpose of this essay is to deliver a reflective account of the learning and educating actions required to change a stoma bag. A third year student carried out the actions required to complete the task within a ward setting. The Royal College of Nursing (RCN), 2015 describe reflection as a process where nurses are given the opportunity to reflect on significant events that have taken place and explore their knowledge and practical skills in an objective way. Using analysis and evaluating the nurses actions, provides a learning opportunity, allowing future practice to be improved including professional development and patient safety (Nursing and Midwifery Council, (NMC) 2015). For this assignment, Gibbs (1988) reflective framework will be used.
