Considering the changes that continue to arise in the healthcare environment, the nursing profession can make a profound contribution if it embraces nursing leadership. Especially to limit failure in care provision, strengthening nursing leadership continues to be fronted as the basis of care provision. Consequently, I view that nursing leadership ought to be central to the nursing professional goals. In this paper, I will reflect on my values and beliefs in nursing leadership and my future expectations from a perspective of a nurse leader in a manner that is consistent to what I would desire in nursing leadership. I believe that progress has been made, but some areas still need to be given more weight.
New policies, rules, and regulations must be followed and implemented once PFCC become an approach to use to deliver care since families can have organizational roles and be more involved in the care process. Just as support services are avaible for patients, similar services should be provided for families who may need comfort or someone to talk to ensure they understand that the organization cares about their needs as well. For example, there can be an advocate provided for families. Changes in employee training and orientation must take place to fully implement PFCC approach into the organizational culture. Support from internal and external stakeholders must be established to make sure all stakeholders are onboard and prepared for the system change.

: Person-Centred Care aims to ensure that the older adult is an equal partner in their health care. Key components that ensure PCC is provided are the following: respect and holism power and empowerment choice and autonomy empathy and compassion. (Rcn.org.uk, 2015) A person-centred approach to nursing focuses on the individuals needs, wants, goals and desires so that they become central to the care and nursing process (OpenLearn, 2015). According to The Department of Health (State of Victoria, Australia), person-centred care is a philosophical approach to care, ensuring that service systems are developed in partnership with older people and/or their carers (Health.vic.gov.au, 2015). PCC is treating patients as they want to be treated and about working together with older adults on things they enjoy doing and things that are important to them without restraint of routines (Kearns, 2013).
“As a continuous process, discharge planning starts earlier and continues later and involves reaching out to both health care professionals and family caregivers along the entire continuum of a patient’s care” (Robeznieks, 2017, p. 40). Through this continuous process of discharge planning, this can help improve the quality of care rendered to the patient and lessen the chance of readmission to the
Consent can be legal, ethical or professional, (Wheeler 2013), and is more than a simple signature on a form, it forms the process of good communication between patient and professional providing the treatment (Dimond 2015). In order to ensure that patient are aware of the care that will be given, the patient is informed and consent gained before or during care delivery Mental capacity Act (2015) additionally, obtaining consent encompass in the legal and ethical framework, hence this must be sort and healthcare professional must assess if the patient has capacity to consent to care Mental Capacity Act (2015).

CQC make sure people voice are heard by listening and acting on peoples experiences. They take complaints seriously by improving the service and also by protecting the right of vulnerable people including those whose rights are restricted under the mental health act. REF. One of the benefit that implement CQC is the benefit to the patient, patients are allowed to speak up on any issues they have. CQC make sure patient have confident in the service they are using and also making sure patient have clear information on the service they want to choose by providing rating across all service provider to make better choice on what organisation to
This is because the care provider will be aware of the specific values and preferences of the patient. The assessment gives both the care provider and the patient background knowledge on the linguistics and cultures in question. Care providers are able to understand various multidisciplinary policies, behaviors, as well as attitudes as a result of conducting a heritage assessment for a patient. With this information, care providers are better placed to provide diverse represented patients with cross cultural treatment of the best quality (Dennis, 2016). Given that the assessment provides the necessary background assessment, nurses can draw from it to provide quality care services to patients.

Concept analysis is vital when it comes to nursing theory. I think that it helps to shape the foundation, and supports to provide an understanding for a need for a certain theory that may not currently exist, or one that needs to be better understood. Katharine Kolcaba developed The Comfort Theory while conducting a concept analysis on comfort. Kolcaba Comfort Theory can be applied to practice today focusing on the concept of comfort and how it affects the care provided to the patients. There are many ways to measure comfort, but one must remember that these measures are based on patients and their perspectives.
