This teaching allows the client and their family to recognize areas that need to be adapted into their hospital stay. This will help the client and their family members prevent a HAI while they are most vulnerable. The method of evaluation that will be used is a posttest. If learners are aware that a posttest needs to be completed, this requirement encourages them to pay attention to the information (Bastable, 2008, p. 495).

We know it as the mid-life crisis because it is an emotional state and can be a time filled with bouts of severe depression that may require professional help to get through (Doheny, 2008). Sigmund Freud thought that this crisis period of one’s life was a reflection of flaw in the development of a person’s ego during their childhood (Weaver, 2009). Many other believe it is a normal part of adult life when one reflects on their past and may experience anxiety about their future (Weaver, 2009). Many people will place a value on their life, the material things they have acquired, their job, successes and failures, and if they feel they have not done well, this can be a terrible time for a person; this is what has given this period of life the bad name of crisis (Doheny, 2008).

It was common that the men in that time came from more stability from the families that raised them and were able to be the only one who had to work so the wife didn’t have to. Today, we have higher divorce rates, both parents often working in one household and different stressors that are dealt with by people these days. It seems that there are many diseases and illnesses that are burdening copious amounts of people that can be an added stress to someone or their loved ones. There can be different meanings of a midlife crisis for everyone and whether or not people even believe in a midlife crisis. One of the main new ideas that what can cause a midlife crisis, is the provocation of a stressful event or change in self.
This study will be the first of many to examine opportunities for the reduction of unnecessary stressors for these cognitively impaired patients. In order to not waste time with individual studies involving many months, we will also begin videotaping patients daily interactions with their caregivers just as Rogers did of his counseling sessions with clients (Gundrum, Lietaer, & Van Hees-Matthijssen, 1999). The purpose of this filming will be to highlight other areas of daily care activities to direct our attention to where possible changes can be made. It is expected that patient stress will be decreased and patient satisfaction increased by making changes in these guidelines and developing new instructions guiding caregivers in how better to communicate and interact with patients just as Rogers ... ... middle of paper ... ...to the depth and scale we expect to provide.

If I can improve these skills, my patients will benefit as I aim to improve the standard of care I ultimately give as a radiation therapist. Reflective practice challenges the actions and experiences of students and professionals. It requires self-assessment and analysis of actions and calls for a change in order to improve care. This high standard of care is fought for by health professionals who keep their patients as a priority. Carla’s experiences highlights the impact professionals may have on patients and shows how the actions of those professionals had a significant impact on her emotional wellbeing throughout her treatment.

In the perspective of someone who is aiming to become a healthcare provider, it is a never ending cycle of learning how to better improve the ways to take care of each patient, and most oftenly, the patient’s emotion has great effects on how their diseases can be treated. It is beneficial to view “the disease with the person who has it” (Sartorius. 663) in order for doctors to progress through the treatment, as this method “improve the practice of medicine” and provides a more “realistic” and “humane” (Sartorius. 663) connection between the two parties. Ultimately, both the caregiver and the receiver gains experience from the improved
Psychological As a product of life history, the ageing of the body during middle adulthood is undeniable. Psychologically, realising one’s own ageing is challenging (Lachman, 2001). Fading youthfulness, decline in physical functioning, changing careers and other dramatic alterations in life often cause anxiety and depression as they are expected to adjust their perception of age. This occurred when they are making a way through the previous occupational lifestyle as it is challenging to adjust their mentality. However, by re-evaluating their life, individuals usually see the chance of personal growth and are able to maturely encountering these challenges (Rayner, 2005).
