It is against such back drop that a study of this nature is important in helping the patient, patient’s family and the care givers to understand the phenomenon in order to help control it. The significance of the study is: 1. To help patient understand their role in curbing the effect of hypertension in chronic kidney disease. 2. To help caregivers understand the importance of their role in controlling hypertension in CKD.
An option for healthcare in today’s era of medical knowledge and highly increase use of technology has provided some possibilities concerning the medication of patients. Providing care especially palliative care is very challenging in a demanding complex environment of medical and thus requires specialised training and knowledge (Malloy et al 2007). In a study conducted by Duldt-Battey (2003), humanising the communication theory for nursing, the study provides a strategic foundation to assure the fact that communication occurs between nurses and other physicians connected with the healthcare. These typical goals are also outlined in a conductive study of Solomon (2002) that relates to palliative care. The objective of end-of-life (EOL) communication

How might the ANA code of ethics and the Nurse Practice Act help to guide Josepha? The legal and ethical issue that Josepha has to use is. He has to know how to discuss the issue he has with the higher or manager of the head nurse. It is good to communicate the issue you have with the managers instead of felling bad thing about them. As I read the “Team STEPPS makes strides for better communication”, some of the tools like; (SBARQ) is used in many organizations, especially during patient hand-offs.
Safety strategies were identified and prioritized. Smeulers, M., Onderwater, A. T., Zwieten, M. B., & Vermeulen, H. (2014). Nurses' experiences and perspectives on medication safety practices: an explorative qualitative study. Journal of Nursing Management, 22(3), 276-285. doi:10.1111/jonm.12225 This article define medication errors and when occur these medication administration errors (MAEs) such as one or more of the seven rights of medication administration (right patient, right drug, right dose, right time, right route, right reason and right documentation) are violated. Moreover, the writers suggest study more about nurses’ knowledges with and perceptions on preventing MAEs through this journal.
Many studies have concluded that there seems to be a relationship between a physicians’ gender and the way that this affect patients. Roter and Hall (1998) explained why physician gender matters in shaping the physician-patient relationship. They mentioned in their research two sets of therapeutic relations that exists in the doctor-patient relationship— the paternalistic model and the informative model. In the paternalistic model the physician is an expert who conveys technical information sufficient for patients to select the medical intervention deemed more appropriate for themselves. On the other hand, the informative model is that in which the doctor assists patients with interpretation and understanding of the information within their social, emotional, and cultural context.
The theorist Betty Neuman explains how the whole system affects the patient’s health and shows how the nurses are responsible for the social, mental, spiritual, physical and emotional state of the patient and not only the physical aspect. With the theory, nurses and other professionals are able to provide effective systematic nursing care to their patient using the System Model. Furthermore, her ideas give the importance on how to give the right care through stressful situations and give knowledge and development to the science of nursing. The Model also speaks to coping with unexpected situations through three prevention levels which are the primary prevention, secondary prevention, and the tertiary prevention. Generally, I choose this model
Evidence-based practice in nursing and healthcare Introduction Evidence-based health care refers to the careful and thoughtful decision-making that happens during patient care, which is greatly influenced by valid and clinically relevant research, to provide quality patient care and improve patient outcomes (Broom and Adams, 2012). As such, the main aim of the evidence-based health care is to help healthcare providers make choices that best affect individual patients, of which they have to base their judgment on current and valid information. Evidence-based practice is a process that necessitates practitioners to examine the patient, come up with a clinical query, carry out a research pertaining the question, and attain supportive evidence.
Running head: PRESTIGE PRESTIGE Practicing with Prestige Lizbeth Sanchez, Crystal Pacca, Marie Pierre, Nataly Jean-Michel University of Miami Practicing with Prestige Our theory of Practicing with Prestige was derived from Ruland?s End of Life theory, Murrays Theory of Psychogenic needs, and Nurse Expressed Empathy for Patient Outcomes by Olson, Joanna, and Hanchett. The theories used to derive Practicing with Prestige all correlated to how the nurse-patient relationship and psychological needs of patients affect the patient?s perception of care provided and ultimately the healthcare outcomes. We feel that practicing with prestige is an intricate and imperative part of providing care and optimizing the nurse-patient relationship
4.2 Computerized Decision Support Systems (CDSSs) Computerized Decision Support Systems are software systems that utilize individual patient information. It employs a storehouse of clinical information (knowledge-base) and an inference mechanism (logic) to produce patient particular outcome. These applications differ highly in refinement, outcome and the dimension to which they could merge with other clinical information systems. (Josip Car et al, 2008) Computerized decision support systems are created to help clinicians in taking decisions and by this improve the quality and safety of healthcare care. (Kathrin Cresswell, 2012) Kathrin also indicated that computerized decision support systems are in core computer software systems or applications that combine patient data, a database of clinical knowledge and conditional logic (if-then or do while) to produce patient particular advices related to healthcare (Figure below).
