To help caregivers understand the importance of their role in controlling hypertension in CKD. 3. TO determine how to improve the management of hypertension in CKD patients and overall quality of life on the patients. 1.7 SCOPE/DELIMITATION OF THE STUDY This research is limited to National Hospital Abuja. The questions in the questionnaire are capable of illuminating sufficient information on the phenomenon under investigation.
Besides that, the doctor also should provide a balance view between the options available for the patient and explain regarding the importance of having an informed consent in the process of discussion so that the patient can make a meaningful decision. This is important because sometimes the patient may have limited awareness on legal implications of signing or not signing the consent forms, and they may not realize regarding the role of written consent as primarily serving their interests (Zafar et al.,
Others may need outpatient treatment. There are people who may need only an advice and supervision of a doctor. Stabilization of the patient's condition will be the main goal if a person is in life-threatening condition. The primary goal of treatment should be aimed at corporeal and psychological needs. The patient must show internal feelings that led to the
When providing information to the patient a phlebotomist should be mindful of the particular patients needs and what they would like to know ensuring that they have understood the information given to them. In the past, education of healthcare professionals did not focus on ensuring that the professionals achieve a certain amount of skills needed for effective communication with their patients. This leads to a system in which the healthcare professional deals only with the necessary medical information rather than utilising a more clien-centred approach. It has been suggested that they are reluctant to inquire about the patients concerns in fear of encountering personal issues surrounding the situation which they are not equiped to deal with. Their concern may be that this will result in increased patient stress, a less time
If this is the case, they must be told of the reason for the refusal. Patients have a right to complain about the doctor's refusal to the Management. Provision of Treatment requires patient’s choice and informed consent. Even if a patient has signed a general consent clause, the patient can still refuse medical treatment or procedures. However, in exceptional or emergency situations a doctor may be legally justified in performing surgery or providing treatment without the patient's consent.
This will enable patients to talk about health issues including emotional, social, mental problems that disturb them. In healthcare, certain factors affect good nurse-patient communication which are time, language, environment, shortage of nursing staff, assumptions etc. These factors lead to error in medication, misdiagnosis and even death. So, the need for good nurse-patient communication should be emphasized in nursing practice. 3.3 Application in current job I really do know and understand the benefits of a good nurse-patient communication.
CONCEPT 3- THE INTERVIEW This concept is taken from module 1 Introduction- Interview focuses on data collection and understanding of data. Interview should contain all relevant information. During the interview, the client’s psychological; socio cultural, spiritual and physiological responses should be noted so as to know the type of care the client will require. Interview is always conducted before physical examination. Significance- Interview is conducted to take note of client/patient’s symptoms.
The human factors that affect efficient communication involve patients’ moods or reactions towards the services provided by the nurses. Therefore, nurses are advised to exercise patience and understanding of the conditions of their patients. They should seek to serve the clients regardless of whether they are rude or welcoming. In cases where communication is hindered due to lack of cooperation from the patient, the nurse can seek assistance from their supervisors. Also, nurses are advised to shun from forming predetermined perception of patients to ensure that they can communicate
Lack of documentation can alter the nursing intervention, such as in the scenario which stated medication was not discontinued when the resident was at high risk for bleeding. This can put a patient to danger and at risk for injury. Hence, they must make sure to record down all the patient’s evaluation findings, information and findings. Other than that, nurses should also be discreet, stay educated and follow proper procedure and
Often patients can misinterpret information that clinicians tell them especially where there is a language barrier present. When a clinician is giving medical information to the patient such as in the video ‘interpreting the message’ where the doctor tells the patient of possible treatment, Kelley (2015) argues that ensuring that the physician acts as a filter/conduit of information and assessment of risks and benefits is of utmost importance to patients. It is of equal importance for the healthcare professional to ensure that the patient understands and interprets correctly the information that is being relayed to them. If there is a language barrier present between a patient and their clinician interpretation is made more difficult and this can often lead to misinterpretation. Gregg and Saha (2007) describe language as “a simple shared system of grammar and words”.
The systematic approach of DRABC, also known as the Primary Survey, is strictly followed to diminish the mistreatment and misdiagnosis of the patient. This initial assessment becomes vital as it prioritizes the paramedics safety and the patient’s pre-hospital care. The Primary Survey (PS) consists of; Danger, Response, Airway, Breathing and Circulation. However, the primary survey may differ regarding the patient’s conscious level. If the patient is unresponsive, the survey becomes DRCAB, in contrast, with an alert patient, it is then DRABC (Clinical Quality & Patient Safety Unit, 2016).
Through informed consent the physician must give the following information to the patient: diagnosis, nature and purpose of treatment, risks and benefits to proposed treatment, alternatives treatments and their risks, the risks and benefits of not undergoing treatment. • Implied consent is not specifically granted by a person but is inferred from one 's actions, facts, and circumstances. Such as an appointment with a physician regarding a complaint or giving the doctor permission to make a
The medical and clinical administrator’s role would be to support service providers by offering a good quality of care and safe working practices. Administrators are often approached to provide information. Information must not be passed onto a third party unless the service user has given written consent. However, the service user can ask for access to medical documents and reports under the Access to Medical Records Act 1988 and Access to Health Records Act 1990. Medical and clinical administrators must be accommodating and refer the service user to the appropriate resource.
To receive a prescription, the prescribing physician and a consulting physician must agree to another multiple set of conditions. Both physicians must agree with each other to an appropriate diagnosis, determine whether patients are capable of health decisions, patients must also produce a written request to both physicians, patients must pass all psychological examination, prescribing physician must inform patients other alternatives, and last, but not least, patients’ next-of-kin could be notified about the prescription request. These protocols are to be met to provide patient comfort and avoid disaster. The Death
On the other hand a mental health nurse should be aware of “their own non behavioural body language” before dealing with a client. It is important for a nurse to educate themselves regarding “body language” how it is being used when interacting with a client and also not to “over interpret non verbal communication” (Egan, 2010, p.147). A mental nurse should be mindful to different backgrounds and the sensitivity of different practices with concerns of using eye contacts and body languages with genders. Touch is another form of non verbal communication and also it is an important factor of therapeutic communication as well. Touch “can be used as a means of reassuring and/ or breaking down barriers between nurse and client” (Gleeson and Higgins, 2009).
