Because by practicing humanistic medicine, the doctors can earn the patients’ trust. People trust the person who listen to them, communicate with them and care for them, which are the things that doctors do when practicing humanistic medicine. If the patients trust his or her doctor, they are willing to comply with his or her suggestion and naturally effect of the treatment will increase. Also, the state of the patient’s
When a patient realizes what are the potential negative outcomes he/she may face with, it would not be problematic for him/her to set priorities. This is why involvement in decision making should be used in a doctor’s office for the patient to be adherent to medical recommendations. In addition, this strategy considers patients as experts in their experiences which, in turn, gives recognition to patients (Pawlikowska et al.
The health professional must show empathy, mindfulness and respect while demonstrating active listening. They must remain non-judgmental, providing care that is genuine and honest. This allows them to understand the physical and emotional needs of the patient, which ultimately leads to the right diagnosis and treatment. By the use of positive verbal and non-verbal communication, such as eye contact, gestures, tone of voice and keeping the language relative to the patient, health professionals are able to engage with the patient to find out necessary information (Boose 2018). In regards to written communication, it is essential that the health professional is clear and concise while using relevant and simple language for the patient.
All sort of communication such as verbal, non-verbal, and part verbal are imperative and play a vital role in the process of providing person-centred care (Elwyn, et al., 2012; Morgan & Yoder, 2012). Moreover, the communication assists in managing emotions of the patients as well as the healthcare because it creates a bond between them. Through effective communication, the patients feel comfortable in discussing their perspective and feeling with the practitioner due to which the process of healthcare service providence becomes easy. Without proper communication, the staff at person-centred care would not be able to interact successfully with the patients. It affects the process of understanding their requirement and needs in a negative manner due to which
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). Being the patient's advocate, participating in their care, encouraging independence, and pushing them to be the best that they can be to return to normal health are all important aspects of compassion. When I was working with my patient I felt since I had a smile on my face, a positive attitude, a calming demeanor, and the drive to help her with her care she accepted my help and wanted to get better and participate in
It will describe ethical principles that can be applied to issues with patient-clinician communication. Finally, it will explain the importance of ethics in communication and how patient safety is influenced by good or bad team communication. The first method of communication is mutual respect. The patient and clinician have a partnership based on trust. The patient has respect for the clinician 's experience and the clinician has respect for the patient 's wishes, needs, concerns and builds on past experience to meet immediate needs.
For a good collaboration to exist in a healthcare institution, there must be set objectives and people involved must have same interest in meeting the set objectives. There must be a good communication that is clear, honest and purposeful. A collaborative nursing practice involve cooperation with the nursing team, other health professionals and patients as well as their relations. In as much as nurse are always at the forefront of every healthcare, their nursing care for patients is not adequate without the help of other health team members because the health team work as a group using their individual techniques to achieve high standards in patients’ health outcomes. Good collaboration among nurses makes their work easier as it ensures continuity and prevents errors or mismanagement in patients’ health.
All of those aspects are pivotal in order to maintain a healthy, therapeutic relationship with our clients and to provide the greatest, holistic care possible while maintaining a sense of respect. Brennan and Monson (2014), say it best, stating, “professionalism is an indispensable element in the compact between the medical profession and society.” I consider autonomy and accountability a package deal when it comes to the professional nurse. Being able to work autonomously means that you handle certain situations independently while utilizing your knowledge and the evidence presented to you to come to a decision. You also have to remain accountable for the decisions you made while using that knowledge and take responsibility for those choices and any possible mistakes. These qualities are essential when it comes to operating within a healthcare team in order to gain
It is not an isolated event. • While the healing process is in full swing, the quality of the relationship established between physician and patient is paramount. The patient is encouraged to take responsibility of their own health work their way to the top of their health chart. The ideal patient-doctor relationship considers the needs, desires, awareness, and insight of the patient, as well as the physician. • Physicians are to influence and lead their patients by example.
Dignity is a complex concept but is a central nursing value. Nursing care should be delivered in a way that respects the uniqueness and dignity of each patient regardless of their culture or religion. Dignity can be defined as “Patient dignity is feeling valued and comfortable psychologically with one’s physical presentation and behaviour, level of control over the situation, and the behaviour of other people in the environment” (Baillie , 2007). A patient’s experience in a hospital environment can depend on whether their dignity is promoted or threatened. Dignity can be violated, that is why it demands respect but also at the same time protection.
A Case Study: Healing and Autonomy Introduction Healing is the process of restoration of normal biological body functioning from a previously experienced illness. Autonomy is the respect of the patient decision on his/her fate. It is a basic right of the patient and the physician ruling ought to abide by it. This makes it mandatory for the health care provider responsibility to respect this patients ' right. For the process of healing to be amiably achieved there should be a cooperation of the patient and the nurse this elevates the confidentiality of the patient and make it easier of the functionality of the nurse.
