Kelly, I agree with you. Mr. Henry needs to act now and complete an advanced medical directive (AMD) for when he is no longer able to make his own decisions for his medical treatments. Doctors needs to encourage their patients about completing an AMD as soon as when they give diagnosis of a chronic illness to their patients; and nurses have to provide education about AMD as soon as during their patient’s admission. It is the nurse responsibility to assess and educate their patients about AMD. “The trusting relationship between the medical-surgical nurse and the patient lends itself to an opportunity to provide supporting education needed for completion of this document” (Rigan, 2016, p. 2).
This is the beginning process for the trainee nurses to start developing their contextual clinical competencies and it is depends on their clinical placement as well as supportive environment received in shaping individual values and especially clinical skills. Based on view of clinical competence literature, it is evidence that clinical skills is an important of acquiring clinical competence which consisting of clinical skills which includes knowledge, critical thinking skills, clinical decision making and clinical
Patients need attention. Patients want doctors to take them seriously, to like them, to listen, and to acknowledge their emotions. When you give the patient attention it makes them feel validated and taking their concerns not consideration. The attention the caregivers provide helps build patient relationships. In my interview, sissy explained that the attention she got made her feel validated, her concerns were listened to and she was felt as if she were in good hands (S. Johnson, personal communication, February 5th, 2018).
Learning from medical practice, I have put these skills into my life by applying them to my tutoring sessions. I have applied them by explaining concepts that may seem difficult to students and make them understandable to each individual’s unique style of learning. Also, I have practiced the concept of situational awareness. When having multiple students it is important to give them all equal opportunity and make sure they are not getting distracted. By being aware of their actions throughout the session, it places them all in a learning environment where the students and I work as a team to dissect and further analyze problems in their course.
Thus, engaging in meetings where opinions, researches and other relevant knowledge is shared allows comprehensive learning, effective research and crafting or invention of better approaches to ensure patients and nurses enjoy the services and the health care environment as implied by Munhall (2012) and Torrey et al. (2014). Wallis (2012) makes implication that the prime objective of EBP is to provide approaches that can be applied effectively to prevent, detect and provide care of health disorders. Thus, obtaining a magnet status and evidence-based projects and should integrate current best evidence from research with clinical policy and practice to improve healthcare
Next priorities proceed up the hierarchy of needs from there. Once priority diagnoses are identified, patient-centered outcomes are established. Outcomes are patient-specific, able to be measured, Attainable by the patient, realistic and time-limited. These patient-centered outcomes provide direction for the assortment of nursing interventions. Once these are developed the care plan is communicated to health care team to set the plan into motion.
As a medical assistant, it is important to act professional, when you are working in medical field.We should always think carefully before you talk about incontinence with patients. Tell the patient not to be embarrassed and be honest, so that we can help them.We need to ensure our patients feel comfortable and confident with themselves.Also as a medical assistant, it is our job to educate the patient by giving them some resources to look up and read.
To address the goals domain barriers, BCTs that were mapped to them included reward/ incentive, behavioural information, Increasing skills and social processes of encouragement, pressure, and support. These BCTs can be delivered through conducting educational and training workshop and distributing printed materials to the clinicians about the consequences of using PROMs in clinical practice. During the workshop, the plan and the procedure to use PROM scores in clinical setting will be introduced. The proposed plan could be the PROM scores feedback report, where the clinicians receive the report before the patient visit and use it to evaluate patient and to facilitate clinical making decision. The clinicians will be asked to practice this plan during the workshop.
Leavitt and Leavitt (2011) claim that nurses and doctors should act without delay in case they feel that patients might be at risk. Doctors and nurses should be considerate and kind to the patients by listening and attending to all their concerns. Teamwork is an important professional value that is vital in the provision of care centered on patients. A culture that is based on learning from previous mistakes and openness is fundamental in the provision of care and ensuring that patients are satisfied. In view of that, workers in the health sector should maintain honesty with the patients they are attending
I was nervous throughout the entire pray, but, nevertheless I was happy to be able to pray of our behalf. Today’s focus was on culture and communication.We were placed in pairs to interview and take health history on a patient. As usual, we have adapted Nightingal’s theory into our routine, and as a student nurse, this theory together with Hildegard’s theory is very easy to pick up and easy to implement in our nursing care in clinical every Thursday. Ensuring that the environment is safe, practicing safety checks, gathering necessary equipments, and washing our hands before we go to our patient, is a top priority. This has now become a habit for me every Thursday.
