The recovery principles address that, this will be achieved by promoting a culture of hope, promoting self-autonomy and self-determination. Collaborative partnerships and engagement, focus on strength. Holistic and personalised care, engaging family, carers, supporting people and significant others, responsiveness to diversity, lastly, reflection and learning. (Cockram, 2011).
This unit develops understanding of the values and principles that underpin the practice of all those who work in health and social care. The essay consider theories and policies that underpin health and social care practice and explore formal and informal mechanisms required to promote good practice by individuals in the workforce, including strategies that can influence the performance of others. The first part of this essay will consider how principles of support are implemented by using Overton house residential care home to evaluate and explain how principles of support are applied. Key concepts such as person-centred approach and dilemmas and conflicts arising from the
This assignment will reflect on and critically analyse my personal and professional development in the domain of care management over the last three years. It will additionally outline how I plan to continue to develop in this domain once I have qualified as a registered nurse. My development so far will be analysed from the perspective of the skills, knowledge and values required of a registered nurse. Through this reflection I hope to confirm that my practice meets the standards for entry onto the nursing register as outlined by the nursing and midwifery council ((NMC) 2008).
A nursing theory that has influenced my professional nursing practice is Jean Watson’s Theory of Human Caring. In this theory she addresses how nurses care for their patients. Caring is the essence of the nursing profession and is a relationship formed between the nurse and the patient. In Watson’s theory she believed that caring could assist the patient to gain control in their own health care, become educated, and in the end find health. Watson focused on the patient’s mind, body, and soul and this is the aspect of her theory that I try to use in my professional practice. As a new nurse straight out of nursing school I focused more on protocols and procedures to make sure I was doing everything right. My patients had good outcomes but I was amazed when I started thinking about the patient as a whole and not just thinking about the illness they had and how to treat it. Many times just treating the patient’s
The purpose of this assignment is to explore a needs orientated approach to care planning, through the use of a problem solving approach to care, and a nursing model. It aims to show an understanding of what both a problem solving approach to care, and a nursing model are; and to establish how various key elements of both are implemented in practice. The following citation by the Department of Health (DH) (2009) identifies what is intended by the process of care planning;

Kimbrough ambulatory care center is an Army base medical care center for most health needs. It is a facility in which all ambulatory care may be performed. This means it excludes emergency care and long term or overnight care. The facility houses Primary care such as Internal medicine which helps those with long term problems such as diabetes, cancer, and chrones disease to manage and monitor treatments. There is a practice for routine care, minor acute illnesses, pregnancy testing, prescribed injections, medicine refills and physicals. Another area focuses on family practice, Coumadin clinic, lipid clinic, and smoking cessation. The other primary care practices are
During my 10 weeks of ambulatory care at Firstlight hospital, I observed different situations in which different professional worked together to better patient care. One of the benefits of being in a rural site is more community involvement of healthcare professional, which is not seen in urban areas. Different professionals work closely to provide to the best care to the patients, and to enhance smooth transition from one institution to another as well as smooth transition from hospital to their homes. These professions include dialysis, assisted living, hospice, rehab, public health, nurses, social services and pharmacists. In addition, managers in each department volunteer in the community at least once every two months, organizing events
During my nursing education and nursing career, I have studied the major nursing theories. Some of them include Nightingale’s Environmental Theory, Watson’s Philosophy and Science of Caring, Orem’s Theory of Self-Care, and Erickson’s Modeling and Role-Modeling Theory. My nursing focus is on inpatient mental health. The theorist that is most relevant to my work is Jean Watson’s theory of caring. Watson (1998) states “Caring and healing by their very nature are concerned with wholeness. Wholeness by its very nature is concerned with interconnectedness and intersubjectivity” (Extended Science-Upward section, para. 1). Another theory frequently used in psychiatric nursing is Helen C Erickson’s Modeling and Role-Modeling Theory. Her theory states that each person has a unique perception of the world and the nurse must relate to the patient based on these unique perceptions (Sappington & Kelly, 1996). There are other nursing theories that integrate in my practice, but these two theories create the foundation of my nursing care.
According to Walker and Avant (2005), theories provide a way of identifying and expressing key ideas about the essence of practice. Advanced Practice Nurses (APN) and other healthcare professionals incorporate many theories into
Mr. Mendivil was referred to the STAR CAST on January 1, 2018, by SGPRC due to his noncompliance with treatment and medical appointments. He is diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and is prescribed insulin four times a day. Nursing staff from Care Unlimited Home Health come to the house every day to check his blood sugar, check his blood pressure, and administer insulin as ordered. However, Jesus is reported to often refuse to have blood sugar checked and to have insulin shots. This noncompliant behavior to treatment poses a high risk for complications from poorly controlled diabetes.
Since the early 1900’s nurses have been trying to improve and individualise patient care. In the 1970s this became more structured when the nursing process was introduced by the general nursing council (GNC), (Lloyd, Hancock & Campbell, 2007) .By doing this their intentions were to try and understand the patient in order to give them the best care possible (Cronin & Anderson, 2003). Through the nursing process philosophy care plans were written for patients. It was understood that this relationship would ensure the patient received the best care possible to suit them individually. This would consist of not just the patient as a physical being but their spiritual emotional and holistic being also (Cutler, 2010). The
Using each of the paradigms interchangeably ensures the nurse is practicing in a holistic manner. Thus, the truly holistic nurse would practice from a pragmatic perspective. In order to provide optimal care, the nurse must develop an awareness of the fluidity of patient care, and test each theory within their practice to determine its usability. This article discusses the various paradigms, providing examples of each ones contributions to practice, and presents the implications of practicing in a pragmatic paradigm from an oncology
The purpose of this paper is to provide an introduction, purpose, and rational for selecting a nursing theory. I will describe the theory by identifying the purpose, concepts/definitions, relationships/structure, and assumptions. I will use the Chinn & Kramer evaluation criteria to critique this chosen theory. Finally I will describe a plan for implementing the theory into my practice setting, identifying any barriers and challenges.
