Evidence based is been used widely in nursing practice, which involves integration of a problem solving approach within the framework that concerning care, using the best evidence from research, knowledge and proficiency from clinical together with patients’ beliefs and values. Nursing practice does support EBP as researchers had done many studies that showed improved outcomes when the best evidence is implemented of patient’s care. However, researchers had argued that, there are challenges in attaining and maintaining EBP in nursing practice despite the awareness (Mary, et. al. 2013). By using EBP nurses are able to come up with high quality of nursing care plan for the patients.
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.
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.
The patients will trust the nurse when they know that they can be reliable. The nurse can gain clients trust by being caring, showing an interest in them, being honest and showing the client that they are listening to them. In nursing it is important to be empathetic. The nurse ensure that they are being empathic towards the client and not sympathetic. Empathy allows the nurse to relate to the client’s pain or distress.
Evaluation can take many forms and helps promote quality in education practice (Hughes and Quinn, 2013); it enables nurse educators to ascertain whether their teaching is having a positive impact on patients learning and how (if anything) the steps nurses need to do to improve their evidence-based practice teachings (Ramsden, 2003). As a result, monitoring and evaluating can provide information concerning; the need for modifying the programs, process of implementation and overall program outcomes. This can help support the relevance of the educational pilot program for; empowerment, responsibilities of a nurse educator, leadership, and future research. The consistent use of the assessment of core competencies and questionnaires in nursing education will facilitate the ability to compare nurse educator competencies and the performance of inmates with mental
Public Health In community health setting, Advanced Practice Nurses serve as clinicians, nurse educators or administrators. They provide services in schools, day care centers, community health clinics, group homes as well as in skilled nursing facilities. They are involved in the health of new mothers and babies through pre-and post-natal care, preventing domestic violence and child abuse through education and awareness
In 2011, the Health service executive released a health promotion strategy framework which commits to improving and promoting the health of the population. This framework is an essential part of the healthcare process as it will empower healthcare professional to deliver holistic patient centred care. Ultimately, the goal of the healthcare professional is to inspire patients to have control over and improve their overall health (The Ottawa Charter, 1986). Nurses play a vital role within this process as they are in a “unique position to not only accommodate change, but to also help patients endure the path to change (Dart, 2010). In order for nurses to help change a patient’s perspective of their lifestyle, they must incorporate the use of motivational interviewing into their practice.
This term as remembered was taken from an industry practice which measured quality, time and cost. This was also called “best practice benchmarking” which allowed organizations to plan, compare, and adopt best practices. With further development of this concept, nursing has progressed to EBP, which is unique to nursing practice. Educators must look to pedagogies that use constructivist experiential learning, not just in the class room, but as a clinical learning experience. With the changes in healthcare, shortages of nurses, increase in technology educators are now in the position to create a new atmosphere of learning that inspires inquiry and a quest to further develop EBP.
(B.R.N.) Step 5: In nursing the workers have a many opportunities to specialized in a specialty. The choses can include midwife, communities/public, psych/mental health and many other fields. The nurses specialized can demonstrates to her employer that they are experts and have that capacity to make a professional work.
According to Hiroko et al. (2014), nurses are charged with connecting updated theories with patient care for advancing the practice of nursing. Having an evidence based practice is instrumental in accomplishing this task. Research has allows new information to be gathered pertaining to different health care issues. Nurses are able to implement new evidence-based research into there practice.
Nursing profession is a practice that utilizes findings based on facts and/or evidence. In that, research plays a vital role in building a strong foundation to support the knowledge of nursing. In the profession of nursing field, research and/or evidence provides rationalized, cost-effective, and quality care interventions through validation (Barbara & Susan, 2014). It also assists with existing knowledge in creation of new ideas and innovations. Decisions are made based on research results.
This leads to a process of actions and reaction resulting in an interaction. An interaction is the goal directed portion of relationship built upon perception and communication. This leads to a transition, which is when mutually valued, as goals are achieved. Building a nurse-patient relationship with good communication is the key to mutually work towards an attainable goal to improve the patient 's’ health and quality of life.
There is a need to complete the implementation of EHRs as part of the meaningful use. Clinician Informaticians are needed to help this transition. Clinician Informatician is an individual, physician or a nurse who has more expertise in the field of informatics and is the person to go to with questions. They integrate their knowledge and understanding of science of their clinical specialty with their knowledge of informatics. The integration of these two disciplines Clinical and Informatics, helps informaticians to provide the best quality care by integrating people with systems, processes and information technology.
For retention, HCO’s must continue to use personal development programs for nurses, keep attractive worksites, and provide stable nursing associate groups. (White & Griffith, 2012) They must also look at ways to improve communications between staff, as this is crucial to providing a quality care environment. Nursing groups have proven to be the key retaining and recruiting nurses. Those in charge of these groups are referred to as nurse executives or nurse managers.
As an anesthesiologist, you will have to manage an anesthesia team of assistants and nurses. Being the group leader enables you to make decisions and assign roles based on a member’s strength and weakness. For instance, if a nurse wasn’t accurate in converting measurements, but had hospitality skills. A group leader would assess their skills and determine that the best role for that person would be to monitor and take care of the patient. In addition, group leaders should attain the ability to motivate their team.
