But defenders of an ethic of care in leadership stress the need for caring versus curing as an antidote to medicine which is purely ends-focused. ? Caring defines nursing, as curing often defines medicine? (Lachman, 2012, p. 113). The nurse?s role is to support the needs of the patient in conjunction with the patient?s social, psychological, and physical framework rather than simply focus on curing illness. Care is not simply sentimentality but rather reflects the need to make nursing a practical discipline on an individual basis for each and every patient in a unique fashion (Woods
Compassion is showing care for others and displaying a positive attitude towards the care and concern of others. According to How does it really feel to be in my shoes? Patients' experiences of compassion within nursing care and their perceptions of developing compassionate nurse, "The importance of this relational aspect of compassion to the participants in this study cannot be overlooked when planning and implementing care. Compassion is a process that can be nurtured through attention to patient-centered assessment and planning of care. Patient centeredness is no stranger to nursing discourse, however, adopting this element to care and compassion is challenging in today's healthcare arena, especially when treating massively increased numbers of patients" (Bramley and Matiti, 2014).
Introduction Since Nightingale’s Notes on Nursing was published in 1859 (Polit & Beck, 2012), nursing research with a focus on evidence-based practice has driven patient care practices and policies within healthcare facilities. At my facility, practice changes are driven through the Practice Council of the Shared Governance Council with support from the Research Council. Within the Organization The concept of these councils is to empower the nurses to lead change within the facility.
be highly effective for improving clinical outcomes and reducing cost. Teaching methods that incorporate opportunities for interdisciplinary education and collaborative practice are required to prepare nurses for their unique professional role and to understand the role of other disciplines in the care of patients. Nursing shortages have a negative impact on patient care and are costly to the health care industry. A significant nursing shortage exists today, particularly in acute and long-term care settings. It results from many factors.
The application of theoretic knowledge has to be well structured during nursing care. According to the self-care deficit theory of nursing, attaining the individual therapeutic self-care demand and maintaining the patient self-care agencies are the required result.(Smith 2012). 3.1 Assumption and assertion of the theory The assumption relating to this theory were devised in the early 1970s. Orem in 2001, highlight five fundamental nursing law (Smith 2012) and these include; 1.
This research may also contribute to and support capacity building and sustainability for researchers, decision-makers, regulatory bodies, employers and provider groups as well as others, in their journey toward high-functioning interprofessional collaborative teams. This study will focus on individual healthcare practitioners in maternal newborn and low-risk obstetrical service delivery. Identifying barriers to interprofessional collaborative practice may result in positive changes to the delivery of low-risk obstetrical care. Positive changes may include better cooperation, mutual trust, communication and a focus on shared knowledge and decision-making.
Therefore, • RN one roles effectively communicating to enhance the patient care to be effective • RN two offering care to the patient as specified by the case manager • The LPN collects data that was utilized in the assessment of the patient • NA role helping in answering calls Advantages and disadvantages of the models All the four models of nursing care delivery presented have advantages and disadvantages. Thus, they may vary appropriately in delivering health care to a patient, but at the same time, they are limited in some aspects. Thus, their significances to the patient, nursing staff, family and nurse manager are outlined.
This journal article discusses the benefits of using different types of “thinking”, particularly reflective thinking and how this approach brings about a better form of nursing practice. The RN’s transitioning to BSN in this program are valued in their current knowledge and challenged with case studies or scenarios in which they must apply clinical judgment, individually or as a group in order to develop specific patient centered care without deviating from evidenced-based practice or quite possibly create a better policy or protocol. The effectiveness of this environment of learning allows the RN’s to exercise their intuition, knowledge and skills as the faculty relinquish what’s “right” vs. “wrong” and encourage these advanced nursing students
Quantitative research has improved the overall delivery of health services, helped healthcare managers improve their facilities, and helped healthcare professionals learned more about diseases and other health-related issues. For example, quantitative research studies are needed in epidemiological investigations, in which Nursing participates, but can still explore much more, both in the diversity of epidemiology projects, allowing the identification of the most vulnerable groups of the population, risk factors (Nery, 2017). In this case, Quantitative research is used to collect different data to get the results of the epidemiological investigations
Interview Appraisal The patient interview video that was provided was a health history of new information as well a review of old information. Patient interviews and history taking is a way of obtaining comprehensive information about the patient and applying that information to provide the best care possible for them. Without the interview process we would not be able to have the full health history and would not be able to provide patient-centered care. “The health history interview is a conversation with a purpose” (Bickley 2013, p. 55).

ACOs is consider to be groups of doctors, hospitals and insurance companies that connection together to offer a higher-quality of patient care. By improving the quality of care and making more cost-efficient health care decisions. There are ACO core standards in place to ensure that health providers receive the appropriate incentives across the board. ACO’s also have to establish a system wide approach to continuous improvement, and communication, and education to ensure that the quality of care is cost effective. ACO 's Strategic Plan ACO’s require to meet certain benchmarks for keeping patients healthy without requiring a hospital stay.
Introduction The scope of the nursing practice is changing with the improvement of technology. Computer and information technology is just as important to nurses as their stethoscopes, so implementing and using Medical Information Technology (MEDITECH) an Electronic Health Records (EHR) is vital in improving patient care. The importance and knowledge of the possibilities and limitations of EHR systems is brought up throughout this paper. Chilton Hospital and Fairmont General Hospital review their possibilities and limitations about using MEDITECH.
The new health care reform will help reestablish the nursing concepts such as patient-centered care, integrated plan of care, and overall health and wellness to help aid in the quality of care the patient will receive. The new health care reform will focus on the individual before they become overtly ill, shifting away from its past procedure-based, fee-for-service patient care modalities, and into a preventative based health care approach. The new models of public health care will include new development of community based health centers (school, work and home based) with many more nurses and nurse practitioners serving as the primary care providers (Hokanson,2015).
