By working together the medical staff are able to reach set health goals and help the patient more efficiently. Evidence-based practice integrates best current evidence with clinical expertise and patient/family preferences and values for the delivery of optimal health care (qsen.org). Like most medical professions, nursing is a constantly changing field. With new studies being done and as we learn more about different diseases it is crucial for the nurse to continue to learn even after becoming an RN. Using evidence-based practice methods are a great way for nurses and other medical professionals learn new information and to stay up to date on new ways to practice that can be used to better assess
According to the interviewees, nursing leadership may refer to the nurses’ having a passion for nursing and possessing critical thinking skills (MrDjaskari, 2013). A nurse leader manages the interactions between all departments in an organization to ensure a smooth running of the operations. Nurse leaders strive to make productive changes in health care policy and procedures to provide care that best benefits the patients. A nurse leader should be politically involved and should participate in the enactments of health care related laws that are beneficial for patients (MrDjaskari, 2013). Nursing leadership may also involve empowering other nurses and mentoring them to become active leaders.
Feedback from my fellow nurse colleagues helped me notice what I should expand on and clear up for future nursing development. This informal presentation serves as an important informative topic for nursing and how nurses can be a better and reliable care provider. The three nurses have had similar experiences as I have had as a registered nurse in multiple situations of patient care. They understand the health care system and constant research on how to improve health for the patients, so that nurses can learn and educate themselves to incorporate their studies. Three nurse colleagues included are Silvestre Rodriquez, Maria Ramirez, and Tiffany Muñoz, who have the same amount of experience as I have as a registered nurse.
It provides interaction between team members allowing them to bring their individual expertise skills and experiences to function more effectively in pursuing goals to provide high quality health care. In this paper, I will differentiate between intra- and interdisciplinary teams and where the patient fits within these teams. I will also describe communication skills held by successful healthcare teams. I will then explain the role of teams in nursing and patient empowerment. Lastly, I will discuss the role of teams in professional nursing development.
Professional Communication Communication encompasses a wide range of processes such as the exchange of information, listening, posing of questions (Fleischer et al., 2009) or use of body language. In a healthcare environment where there are constant interactions among nurses, doctors, patients and other health professionals, professional and effective communication is important in ensuring high quality healthcare standards and meeting the individual needs of patients. Upon the first point of contact between a nurse and patient, the way a nurse communicates through words, gestures or facial expressions can affect the patient's perception of the nurse. Communicating professionally helps to portray the nurse in a good light. This is important as having a positive perception of the nurse's image and behaviour is crucial to building patient trust — one of the key elements of a therapeutic nurse-patient relationship (Bell & Duffy, 2009; Wadell & Skarsater, 2007).
Intro- Collaboration with the interdisciplinary team plays a big part in the care of a patient. Coming together as one is an essential to promote the health that is needed in order to define the outcome for what’s best for the patient. The importance of the teamwork and collaboration to the professional nursing is very important since the nurse is providing the bedside care of the patient. Which directions to go in as far as the orders will come from the interdisciplinary team? With feedback from the nurse, changes need to be made.
We have the Center of Nursing Excellence that promotes shared leadership, exemplary practice, teamwork, creative innovations, and professional development. In addition, the Center for Nursing Excellence provides nurses with the resources to improve their nursing practice and patient care. For example, nurses have an opportunity to apply for research grant or attend conferences to improve patient care and practice nursing
Nurse managers use several skills to lead caregiving organizations in producing positive patient outcomes. They oversee organizational finances, human resources management and participate in enterprise strategic planning. To fulfill patient and community medical needs, these professionals lead the individuals who heal the sick. As such, nurse managers are a mission critical resource for healthcare institutions. The Role of the Nurse Manager Nurse managers lead caregiving organizations in promoting positive patient and community outcomes.
Nurse to Nurse collaboration is essential to maintain the same level of continuity of care. Efficient collaboration within coworkers is beneficial when establishing change in the status of patients and identifying needs. For example the collaboration between nurses is manifested when applying a care plan. Through the interventions established by the initial nurse, the nurse taking care of the patient on another shift can collaborate and implement such interventions. On the same collaborate plan the nurse can evaluate such interventions and maintain them or add and discontinues more interventions.
• Nurse-led innovations that aim to expand access to care, improve quality care at the lowest cost • Continued engagement in nursing research to ensure nursing care is data driven. • Expansion of the nurses’ scope of practice • Ensure a nursing workforce reflects patients’ diverse backgrounds and cultural values • Embrace and comfortably utilize the healthcare technology to improve quality of patient care • Ensure that advanced practice nurses (APNs) are allowed to practice to the full extent of their education and licensure. • Ensure that nurses have full understanding of their roles and responsibilities to enable them foster an inter-professional collaboration to drive high quality care • Develop, encourage and support nurses’ leadership at every level. • Nurses must be willing to sit in the decision table to enable them be familiar with governance, strategy, fundraising, financial systems, health law, and policy of the healthcare
