An Rn’s portfolio also includes a reflection of his/her professional development, which will be explained more throughout this summary. The key components I would like to go into more detail for an RN’s profile is the following; introductory page, clinical competencies, evaluation and achievements.
In the following paragraphs, the grand theory of Jean Watson will be explored for its usefulness in practice. We will explore how the theory is congruent with current nursing standards and nursing interventions. Next, we will study if her theory has been tested empirically, if it is supported by research and if it is accurate. We will explore if there is evidence that her theory has been used by nursing educators, researchers, and nursing administrators. Then we will study how her theory is relevant socially and cross-culturally.
Introduction In this assignment I will explore a clinical experience where dignity was maintained and reflect on my practice. It is important to reflect in both personal and professional development. Reflection will allow me to recognise both good and bad practice and how I can improve as a person as well as professionally. For this assignment I will be writing in first person, as it is appropriate for a reflective essay. Hamil (1999) can be used to support this, in the essay.
Occupational Therapy Model / Frame of Reference (FOR) There are several frames of references that occupational therapy utilizes. The frame of reference (FOR) gives the therapist guidelines to follow as interventions are conducted. Choosing a proper FOR is key for the best treatment approach for each unique patient. One FOR that would be appropriate for Kara in this case study is Model of Human Occupation (MOHO). MOHO seeks to explain how occupation is interested, patterned, and performed.
How to develop your teamwork skills Know where you are - The best way to assess yourself is to place yourself in team situations through team sports, project teams, and organizational teams for events at your institute. Analyze your strengths and weaknesses - Use the above information to be team-oriented, not group-oriented. Reflect on what you did well and where you need to improve. For example, were you too accommodating with others and as a result, kept your ideas to yourself? Remember, conflict is not necessarily a bad thing, provided it serves to achieve the team goal.
It has been argued that the shift towards patient-conscious medical aid is necessary and that simulation in its widest sense can be used to support this process. However, sensitivity to what we are simulating is essential, especially when simulations purport to address patient perspectives. The essay first reviews the history of medical education "centeredness," then outlines ways in which real and simulated patients are currently involved in medical education. Patient-focused simulation is described as a means of offering patients' perspectives during the acquisition of clinical procedural and surgical skills. The authors draw on their experiences of developing Patient-focused simulation and preliminary work to "authenticate" simulations from patient perspectives.
Using person centred approaches when doing care plans is always making sure they come first. 1.5 Explain how person-centred thinking tools can form the basis of a person-centred plan? From when the client first comes into the home you must look at their background to form the basis of a care plan. Ask the client there likes and dislikes and there goals for their future this will become the start of your care plan. 1.6 Describe the key features of different styles of person-centred planning and the contexts in which they are most useful?
In this portfolio, I focus on stages of group development, which is one of the elements in interpersonal effectiveness. Together, a critical incident happened in our team during group work task will be critically analyse accordingly to Tuckman’s model of group development (Benfield, 2005). At the last part of this portfolio, I will outline strategies in detail using SMART goals theory to enhance my interpersonal development at the same time increase my effectiveness as a team member in the near future. In this group work task, exploration of the cycle has helped each and every team members to realise that learning developed either from an individual's rationality or their emotional reality (Vince, 1998). Consequently, Korb’s learning cycle
It requires an understanding of the care seeker 's culture and acknowledging what matters to them while caring them in the same as other individuals. Article: Culturally Competent Care: Are we There Yet? The paper is written by Gloria Kersey-Matusiak, PhD, RD and focuses on culturally competent care among nurses. The paper tries to define the competent nursing care, explains it significance in our health care community, introduce a cultural assessment tool, and discusses how the knowledge of culturally competent care can be used in the practice. Introduction to the Culturally Competent Care Firstly, the paper introduces a series of important questions a nurse should ask him/her about the importance of cultural competence in patient 's care, the assessment tool which is more feasible to use according to each specific population, and how that knowledge would help to improve patient 's care and reduce healthcare disparities especially for minorities.
Introduction Nursing models and theories provide guidance to nurses and it gives a rationale for various nursing interventions (Hood, 2018). The Growth Model of Change helps people to realize their full potential. In the nursing practice, the growth model of change is used as the framework, which encompasses the caring theory or complexity theory (Hood, 2018). In this paper, I will focus on the Jean Watson’s Human Caring Science Theory and how it plays a major role in nursing care. Caring helps influence the ways in which people think, feel, and behave in relation to one another (Ozan, Okumus, & Lash, 2015).
The intervention plan is the initial step of implementing the treatment plan after the client has received an evaluation. The purpose of the intervention plan is guide the OTPF in creating the plan and establishing time frames concerning related goals that are measurable and objective, the approach that will be used, how the treatment will be delivered and by who, making referrals to other practices if needed, and evaluating possible needs and plans for discharge (AOTA, 2014)). The plan is best completed through a collaborative effort by the occupation therapist practitioners (OTP), the client, and family or significant others. It is also important to recognize that research concerning treatment is imperative in order to ensure professional
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 51(3), 390 – 395 . The model’s importance is to determine the stage or point the client is at and how to move forward through various changes. In any case, the client either in therapy or consulting with a counselor, or person in the field of study who utilizes models the guidelines or directives. The trans- theoretical model is to appropriate the six stages which are; peoples’ experience in making changes, whether the changes are in therapy or not: precontemplation, contemplation, determination, action, maintenance, and relapse motivational interviewing with substance abuse clients. However, the model’s importance is to determine the stage or point the client is at and how to move forward through various changes.
Difference the article focus on cognitive behavior theory and the chapter gave a review of several different therapeutic alliance included dynamic, systemic and integrative. The different phases of changes, form contemplation, precontemplation, preparation, action and maintenance. Allow the therapist recognize if the client is ready to make the changes that are necessary to move forward with their treatment assist the therapist with developing effective treatment
“Concept clarification is an important step in developing useful and useable knowledge in nursing science.” (Tofthagen, 2010). Within the home health field of nursing one of the major and most significant concepts is team work. Simply stated, concept analysis incorporates a method or approach by which concepts that are of interest to a discipline are examined in order to clarify their characteristics or attributes” (Cronin, 2010). Within a home health care team there are Registered Nurses, Physical Therapists, Home Health Aides, Medical Social Workers, Managed Care Coordinators, and Clinical Managers. Within this team specific goals are set and a plan of care is designed and established.
