How might the ANA code of ethics and the Nurse Practice Act help to guide Josepha? The legal and ethical issue that Josepha has to use is. He has to know how to discuss the issue he has with the higher or manager of the head nurse. It is good to communicate the issue you have with the managers instead of felling bad thing about them. As I read the “Team STEPPS makes strides for better communication”, some of the tools like; (SBARQ) is used in many organizations, especially during patient hand-offs.
Team members should actively participate in discussion and should come out with ideas and suggestions regarding the management of the patient. Consultant should identify deficiencies if any in the delivery of health care service to the patient and suggest how to rectify
Introduction: This assignment will explore the Roper, Logan and Tierney model used in first clinical placement and will explain how it helped to guide nurses to focus on the fundamentals of patient care. Patient dignity is upheld by using this model following the principles outlined in the Code of Professional Conduct and Ethics for Registered Nurses and Midwives as will be discussed. An outline of the philosophical claims of the nursing model that guides practice on the unit for first clinical placement. : Firstly, the assignment needs to define what is a nursing model. A nursing model is a model made up of metaparadigm concepts involving the person, environment, health and nursing.
ENSURING EVIDENCE BASED PRACTICE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE CONCEPT Evidence base practice can be defined as the integration of clinical experience and skills, patient values and best research evidence into decision making process for patients’ care (Saclett D, 2002) The integration of the three elements into decision making process enables the practitioner a better opportunity for enhanced clinical outcome and improved quality of life. Evidence alone is not enough in decision making hence the integration of the three elements. In order to ensure effective public health programme the practitioner must ensure that every decision made is evidence based. Public health programmes and initiatives should be supported by scientific proves and evidences. Research based on scientific proves are used to form health care policy which can be implemented to improve the health of the community.
I will summarize each outcome for the Nursing Informatics specialty. For the intent of this paper I will use outcome and competency interchangeably. The first outcome means the ability to gather healthcare information across the continuum of care; combine and utilize the information gathered to develop a process. Finally execution of that process to evaluate its ability to improve the quality of the healthcare environment. Healthcare managers are constantly assessing patients and collecting information.
The second edition of the OTPF also emphasizes that humans are occupational beings for the sake of one’s health and independence (AOTA, 2008). At this particular outpatient clinic, the OTPF is used to identify and explain the meaning of certain terms such as IADL or purposeful activity to clients, family members, other practitioners, and insurance companies. This framework is used when processing claims for insurance companies, and it can be seen when therapists use specific language to explains how therapeutic activities support health and function. When OTs collaborate at this facility, they use common language pertaining to OT which allows them to maintain service competency. The goal of the therapists at this facility is to work with clients so that they can perform their occupations as efficiently as
An option for healthcare in today’s era of medical knowledge and highly increase use of technology has provided some possibilities concerning the medication of patients. Providing care especially palliative care is very challenging in a demanding complex environment of medical and thus requires specialised training and knowledge (Malloy et al 2007). In a study conducted by Duldt-Battey (2003), humanising the communication theory for nursing, the study provides a strategic foundation to assure the fact that communication occurs between nurses and other physicians connected with the healthcare. These typical goals are also outlined in a conductive study of Solomon (2002) that relates to palliative care. The objective of end-of-life (EOL) communication
Physicians and Hospitals go hand in hand when it comes to the medical care of patients, and it is this relationship that allows the patients to receive the care they need and deserve. It is also this relationship that we as health care administrators need to understand. In order to fully understand this relationship we need to define the concept of the integrated physician model. We also need to explain the importance of clinical integration in the strategic planning process, and the dynamics of and controversies surrounding accountable care organizations and alternative approaches to the current health system. I will also explain the advantages and disadvantages for hospitals and physician’s models.
Leadership within the healthcare field is necessary to increase skills, organization, understanding, and control within the workplace (Huber, 2014). The leadership role tends to fall into the hands of one who is trustworthy, knowledgeable, motivating, committed, and adequately communicates to the team (Huber, 2014). With each leader comes strengths and weakness, hence, the reason why self-assessment and reflection on leadership skills are necessary. Over the course of this essay I will perform a variety of self-assessment and reflection tests in order to identify my strengths and weaknesses as a current and future nurse leader. Results To identify my strengths and weaknesses, I took a total of six self-assessment tests; which consisted of
These principles act as a set of rules and skills that assist in utilising therapeutic communication to ultimately promote behaviour change (Dart, 2011). MI focuses on building rapport in the initial stages of the nurse-patient relationship in order to provoke change (Rollnick et al., 2008). As a result, MI has the potential to significantly improve and achieve patient goals and objectives by identifying, analysing and resolving patient ambivalence in order to promote behavioural and lifestyle changes (Miller and Rollnick, 2013). This strategy seeks to assist patients in thinking differently about what might be achieved through change. MI also has the potential to act as a clinical tool in advising, educating and guiding patients in their quest for change (Rosengren,
As the new HIM department quality coordinator, my duties and responsibilities will includes enforcing collaboration across the entire organization with multidisciplinary team members that consist of Nurses, allied health professionals, Physicians, and major departments. The function of HIM coordinator will also include providing ongoing education to members of the HIM department in the areas of billing, coding, and release of information, medical record transcription and maintaining data integrity. The HIM quality coordinator should report directly the HIM director and the organization’s Chief Information Officer. The first process in addressing the numerous issues that is plaguing the HIM department will involve the review of the department
Reviewing the standards and practices employed by primary care the practices, training is the very important when it comes to risk management, and achieving accreditation with a self-governing organization such, as The Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organization. This organization performs intermittently on site reviews of procedure and compliance. This will help to promote awareness and compliance (Reising, 2012). Nurse Practitioner needs to protect themselves by: (1) Caring, establishing a good connection with patients and maintaining confidentiality. (2) Communicating with client by following up with all laboratory results and follow up with referrals as this will show competence.
