The theoretical framework gives a detailed reason to why the highlighted research ques-tion exists. Orem’s self-care deficit theory of nursing is the theoretical framework relat-ing to this research because the theory is further divided into three sub-theories in which requisite are line with the following: Individual stages of development and goals, Health conditions, Developmental states, Energy consumption and expenditure, Atmospheric conditions and also the theory gives room to investigate possible causes of malnutrition alongside nurse’s intervention by assessing the need for care, approaches and required interventions. According Orem in 2001, nursing can be viewed as part of the health sector that provides authorized care to individuals.
Health can be summed up simply as the absence of illness, but true health is having physical well-being, mental stability and being socially accepted amongst your peers. Environment and society determine what is considered normal behavior and what is not. The norms of a person’s society will affect how people care for each other as friends and family members and as nurses. Societal norms also determine the standards of care that nurses are expected to perform. Nursing includes both scientific and benevolent knowledge and the compassionate delivery of a holistic health model.
Dr. Madeleine Leininger was a well known educator, theorist, researcher and developed the concept of transcultural nursing. She is renowned for her research on transcultural nursing which is the concept of how to effectively care for patients of different cultures and ethnic backgrounds. During the 1950's, M. Leininger worked in a child guidance home, where she experienced, what was described the critical and urgent need to prepare nurses to care for people of diverse cultures. This was the stepping stone to the start of her research. In her article "The Evolution of Transcultural Nursing with Breakthroughs to Discipline Status" M. Leininger explains how to implement transcultural nursing theory in a sunrise model.
“Tell me what I need to do and I’ll do it” (Benner, 1984). This a common sentence frequently uses by new graduate nurses in critical situation. Patient safety is at the center of today’s health care system reform. Undoubtedly, patient’s health is at risk when they are being taken care by fresh graduates in critical care areas because these areas are aimed to provide care to particularly critically ill patients. Furthermore, safe and quality of care relies on timely decision making by nurses and their previous encounters of critical situations.
Therefore, my PowerPoint presentation demonstrates how the human caring concepts of providing basic personal needs, creating a healing, caring environment, solving problems mutually, respecting all people and appreciating individuality can be applied to all forms of therapeutic nursing interventions in areas of practice, education, and administration. Develops therapeutic nursing interventions which may impact healthcare outcomes for individuals, families, populations, and/or systems (i.e. rural and underserved areas). My PowerPoint demonstrates how the concepts from The Quality Caring Model © can facilitate the provision of quality patient care by using therapeutic nursing interventions. Most notably, the research and the creation of my PowerPoint demonstrates how this model investigates exactly how therapeutic nursing interventions can be measured for their effects on patient outcomes using experimental designs, which has yielded favorable outcomes.
Nurses’ performance in hospitals is affected negatively because the people impression does not fulfill nurses’ satisfaction. Therefore, in this paper, I will discuss few things; first, I will provide detailed description of a picture I got from the instagram that view nursing negatively. Secondly, how I find this picture and what it means to me. Thirdly, how that picture affects me and how I will refute the image in daily nursing practice and in the future as a practicing
Introduction Nursing is known as professional discipline (Donaldson & Crowley, 1978). Nurses shortage is one of the significant issues in current nursing in Singapore and also in other countries. According to Buchan et al 2008, nurses shortage has a significant connection with a country’s historical staffing levels, country 's resources and it also estimates the demands for healthcare. Nursing shortages are unmeasureble, and they may be defined as professional capacity standards from an economical view.
Models of nursing care help support the delivery of high quality care. Models of care provide us with a theory about people, their environment, their health and the role of nurses in their care. Models of care provide guidance for planning and delivering care. These nursing care models aid the development of principles and philosophies at ward level or in a hospital setting.
As a nurse, I have also found them as important in providing clients with evidence based care and better outcome. Reading and the quest for knowledge has always been my interest particularly, evaluation of medical and related literatures and journals. This is important to me as I enjoy to know about the health, wellness, their risk factors, various health practices in relation to individuals and their cultural /religious believes. Furthermore, I frequently use interviews to pull together information from clients through the use of quality communication skills to understudy the client’s present and past state of health, wellness and illness and the best possible ways to improve
Imogene King’s goal attainment theory focuses on the importance of the relationship between the nurse and patient along with the impacts it can have on attaining goals. There are many concepts within each system that King believes influence the outcome of the goals. The process of the nurse and patient relationship begins with the nurse. Then the patient along with the nurse both having their own experiences or thoughts on a situation, which can be completely different.
Throughout the course of the semester, the most talked about topic is cultural competence. The book defined cultural competence as “the ability to effectively provide services cross culturally” (Jandt, 2013). This term is important in the health care field because a variety of people from different cultures will be encountered. As a result, a conflict may arise between the health care provider and the patient, and it is the nurse’s job to provide the best care that accommodates the patient’s views as well. In order to provide the best care, the journal article provides ways on how to treat patients who have opposing views.
Cultural competency is vital when working with diverse populations in health care because of all of the different cultures and ethnicities prevalent in our country. America is a true melting pot, and the acculturation which inevitably occurs, is an important aspect of assimilation. Since communication is a key objective in the prognosis of various ailments, the healthcare experience is reliant on today's health professionals to have an adept understanding of a multicultural environment. A regulatory dilemma which is common in today's culture, is the alienation of groups that are not understood by our healthcare system. These patients often resort to self care , which often leads to serious complications and other health issues as a result
According to the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) (2016), "cultural competence refers to the ability to honor and respect the beliefs, languages, interpersonal styles, and behaviors of individuals and families receiving services, as well as staff members who are providing such services". Therefore, it is critical for community health nurses to equip with cultural competence when they service and provide care to diverse populations. In order to offer the optimal care, well utilizing the advantages of the cultures is essential. In cultural preservation, nurses can support the use of the cultural practices, such as “Tai Chi Chuan” to decrease the risk factors of stroke.
hese articles examined the issue that greater cultural competence can play a larger role in minimizing healthcare disparities and improving the quality and access of healthcare to certain populations. Many healthcare agencies and associations are struggling to come up with strategies that are easy to implement regarding cultural competence. In the world of nursing, the realization of the need for nurses to have a profound understanding and respect for their patient’s life but also for their race and cultural values to make their patient a person and not a room number is improving but not fast enough. In order for nurses to provide the best care for their patient, they must be sensitive to all aspects of that patient’s life which include the
