Team members will provide help in different aspects on each stage of her illness. Some of them are to support her family (children: care workers), others to help in everyday life in hospital (care assistant, cleaners). However the nurse is the person who integrate this team and the coordinator during all cancer treatment. Working under supervision provide a nurse with learning opportunities also according to Royal College of Nursing (2002): ‘’Clinical supervision aims to motivate nurses, while being client-centred and focussed on safeguarding standards of client care’’. (AC 1.1, 2.1) Jane may be uncertain about the side effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
In the form of a literature review, I will outline common themes found throughout the literature and identify the most prominent barriers that nurses, patients and their families face during end of life care. I will depict the limitations and gaps within the literature, provide some recommendations for continuing research, discuss nursing implications, and lastly, the learning that occurred. Nursing Theory Ruland & Moore (1998) state that there is a need for clinical guidance in caring for patients and their families who are nearing the end of their lives. By providing nurses with clinical guidance, they can give patients and their families quality care. This theory focuses on dying in a peaceful and meaningful way with family members being present; however, there is great complexity in caring for patients who are nearing the end of their lives, and it is important for nurses to have an adequate level of knowledge about end of life care (Ruland & Moore, 1998).
An evaluation must be done by the nurse when providing the suitable and proper treatment. The Evaluation will aid the nurses to decide should the patient stand in improvement of care and in co... ... middle of paper ... ...ices. In respect to reduce the problems related to health, the NMHC provide superior program, deliver education and knowledge. The principal aim is manage doctors and nurses to help patients in minimizing the expense of healthcare more reachable and reducing the problem of lifelong illnesses. Conclusion The responsibility and the tasks of a nurse is remains to modify and have go through a lot of changes since the reform of the health care.
The primary focus in health care is to improve patients’ health status and quality of life. Many times nurses assist in treating or managing all the apparent medical conditions of the patients, but they fail to tackle the underlying causes of the disease due to inadequate patient-nurse communication. Continuing with this idea, Patak et al. (2009) proposed a call to action for nursing administrators to position patient-provider communication as a patient safety-care quality priority within the healthcare organization and incorporate bedside practices that achieve effective patient communication, especially with those most vulnerable to impair communication. Effective patient-provider communication is an essential component of patient care, and for communication to be effective the information must be completed, accurate, timely, unambiguous, and understood by the patient (Patak et al., 2009).
In order to solve these phenomena of concern it is important for the nurse to have a good rapport with the patient he or she is taking care of. The topic of the psychiatric patient boarding is the phenomena of concern I want to use for my final project, this is a topic that I am passionate about. I know I went into nursing to help people and by helping to solve some of the phenomena of concern that nurses have in the health care field I am able to help the patient receive better quality
I also assess patient’s knowledge about disease process and use teaching methods and information which clients can learn and implement easily. In addition, I communicate effectively with other healthcare professionals and raise concerns on issues which can hinder in continuity in care delivery. Being a patient advocate is my most important of all nursing roles. As a patient advocate, my responsibility is to protect a patient 's rights. When a person is sick, they are unable to act as they might when they are well.
The trust and connection need to be there from start to finish and is not always easy if you only have a short amount of time with the client. According to Fawcett & Desanto-Madeya (2013), Peplau saw that both the nurse and the patient participate in and contribute to a relationship and, further, that the relationship itself could be therapeutic (p. 382). This simply means that the nurse-patient relationship could be beneficial for the patients in their healing process. Trust is absolutely necessary to properly educate, advocate, and lead the patient to their hospitalization. For many of my patients, I am there when they first hear their babies’ heart beat; I educate them regarding how to care for themselves throughout their pregnancies.
Although it may be routine, I think that it would be good to educate the patient about what will be occurring in each of the processes. In addition, when the patient was going for exams, the patient had to wonder what exam and why he was getting this procedure. Moreover, I think that he was not oriented to the time or place, and it does not seem like he was reoriented based on his responses. 2. As a nurse leader, I think that it would have been helpful to educate my team of nurses to effectively care for the patient.
These stigmatizing attitudes toward the mentally ill can have very harmful effects on the individual themselves and their families. The negative attitudes result in social isolation, reduced opportunities, and the lack of self worth (Varcarolis, 2013, p. 18). Nursing graduates need to understand that psychiatric patients appear everywhere, not just in psychiatric settings. Knowing how to properly and appropriately care for them is vital to giving the best care each patient deserves. The challenges of social stigmas about mental illnesses affect graduate nurses in developing a therapeutic relationship, and need to adjust and implement appropriate nursing interventions.
In Ms. Patient’s case, the doctor was able to explain thoroughly to the patient and her parents about her current health condition and idea of scoliosis so the patient can have a better idea about self-care while reassuring her parents. Therefore, the doctor successfully shared adequate information about the patient’s condition so she can better understand how to manage herself effectively. Another example from one of the broad areas was idea of integration and coordination of care, “patients feel vulnerable when they are faced with illnesses and they feel the need for competent and caring healthcare personnel.” Barry& Edgman-Levitan (2012). In this case, both the doctor and the nurse proved themselves as part of a caring healthcare personnel when they tried to have a casual conversation with the patient in the beginning and asking her
