In order for the Tidal Model to be implemented three distinct, yet interrelated domains must be identified. I.E Self, World, and Others represent the dimensions of human existence and overall relationship to the person’s story (Barker & Buchanan-Barker, 2010). If the patient is highly disturbed the initial focus may need focus on a personal security plan that identifies the concerns deep within the patient’s private world (Barker & Buchanan-Barker, 2010). Once personal security is intact, the nurse can encourage the patient to tell their story. Consequently, if the patient is reluctant to engage in revealing their past experiences the nurse should encourage the patient to join groups, and listen to other patients’ stories (Barker & Buchanan-Barker,

The focus of the psychosocial interventions should be aimed at doing what is beneficial for the client’s physical health, mental health, and safety all at once.

For nurses, the path taken in self-exploration should ultimately lead to the patient. During client assessment, it is common and comfortable for nurses to dwell on the physical component. But, patients are not only biological but also psychological and spiritual. A nurse should approach the patient not only for the illness that has brought them to the hospital but approach them on how they are feeling regarding being institutionalize. Also, questioning a patient how has their illness affected them emotionally and spiritually.
According to the works of Beauchamp et. Al, issues on nonmaleficence and beneficence can also be served as a basis for withholding diagnosis. Again, this will leave a greater responsibility for the nurses and doctor to cautiously identify the need for disclosure. However, in a book written by Katz entitled, “The Silent World of Doctor and Patient”, the author argued that excluding the patient from decision making and information giving process is also a form of insult to her dignity and autonomy. It suggests that healthcare professionals should evaluate the situation and the preference of the patient on receiving details before completely disregarding the patient’s desire to be involved in her care.
However, pain which is now considered a part of the vital signs is based on the patients’ philosophy or view point and we (nurses) are told not to ignore but respond. This is highly subjective. It’s viewed how the patient sees it and not as tangible or measurable as the other ways of proving when something is abnormal. The situation to be presented will disclose a patient’s ordeal due to a nurse’s approach to or understanding of pain management. It will also assess whether the nurse responded in accordance to protocol.
The oncology nurse feels that they have support and has a say in the decision of the intervention. A manager in an oncology unit can create a system of rotation where nurses are rotated in difficult assignment, thus decreasing the burden of moral distress. Leaders or experienced nurses should serve as role models to novice nurses and encourage them to speak out if any sort of moral distress affects them. Leaders can help out their oncology nurses with moral distress by creating education plans in where nurse are taught how to deal with ethics, learn coping strategies, and having them receive the adequate training. Moral distress in oncology unit affects nurses a lot and more studies should be done to consider how to prevent moral distress in an oncology
A commonality in many definitions of trust is that it is deeply personal. Because of this deeply personal nature, understanding the concept of trust helps the nurse to form a better understanding of what the patient is undergoing. When a nurse realizes that their patient is having difficulty trusting them, it may indicate that the patient is having a more difficult time with their hospital stay overall, or that they are experiencing more negative emotions than the nurse had originally perceived. A patient who has had poor experiences in the past may be less willing to trust than one who has had positive experiences (Rutherford). In this case, when a nurse observes a patient who is unwilling to trust, she can attempt to alleviate fears that may be related to a previous experience, and therefore improve not only the patient’s experience, but the quality of the nurse-client relationship and care overall.
Empathy is outlined as a crucial characteristic of a helping relationship (106). In nursing practice failure of the nurse to empathize with patients situations can result in providing inadequate emotional support as well as inadequate client education. (pg 107). Empathy is essential concept to nursing practice as it allows the nurse to gain perspective in order to provide appropriate actions and interventions significant to that patient’s individual experience. In “A Nurses’ Story” the author Tilda Shilof struggles with a particularly difficult patient case and must assess her own judgments in order to provide adequate nursing care.
Therapeutic relationship is well-defined as the process of interrelating, that concentration on advancing the physical and emotional comfort of a patient. Nurses use therapeutic practices to provide support and evidence to patients. It may be compulsory to use a variation of techniques to achieve nursing goals in collaborating with a patient. By discovering the reluctance of the patient to study, as well as the opinions and beliefs of the client and their family, the nurse work together with the client to discoveraexplanation.

Even with the given safety and security procedures for contraband removal, contraband continues to still be a problem. Several interventions have been used like acknowledgement forms for staff to sign related to the contraband policy, safety checks done on first and second shift, removal of contraband upon admission and signature of two staff members, and educating patients and sometimes family on what is permissible for the patient to have. This has helped to reduce contraband some but something needs to be done to reduce it more. In this paper, we will discuss the theory of shared leadership. Shared leadership is a good theory to use in health care because it” enables nurses exercise control over decisions that affected their practice” (Barden, Quinn, Donahue, & Fitzpatrick, 2011, p. 293).
