We all want to be treated with dignity and it is a very important part of an individual’s life. Working in the health and social care profession it is important to help people maintain their dignity so they can keep their sense of self-respect and self-worth. All health and social care professionals should be sensitive and aware of the needs of people and service users. Just because a person has dementia, they still need to be given a choice and not assume that they cannot make a choice. Not everybody is the same, there are different levels of dementia, so getting to know the service user is vital to challenge discrimination. We also need to make sure that the service user or their families are aware of the complaints procedure. Having policies and procedures are put in place and that staff are up to date on their training.
While implementing Primary Health Care models, identical to those in metropolitan areas, in a rural setting is not practical, I feel there is an obvious need to improve primary health care in remote areas. This is due to the significant health gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians, in rural and remote areas
During the whole situation from the moment we pulled up out side the house I was very nervous and wanting to give a good impression only made this worse. Once we had entered the house and met Tom I calmed down a little. I was surprised at my own reaction of distaste when I entered the house and encounter a grumpy drunk so early in the morning; I had no prior knowledge of his situation (Claire later informed me that his wife had recently divorced him and he was having difficulties coping).
Firstly I felt nervous at the start as I was doing things I had never encountered before I was also apprehensive about how well I would perform in front of the other nurses. as the procedure went on I became flustered and more nervous which made me even more jittery and I started to loose track of what I was doing this made me annoyed with myself, all this combined made me suddenly feel very hot and dizzy I tried to concentrate on what I was doing but it was impossible. After I had recovered I just felt a bit stupid and embarrassed.

This reflective essay will be adopted from Rolfe, Freshwater and Jasper’s (2001) reflection model. This reflection is based on a case study that I have read and will be based on the intervention I have chosen to treat the patient. Mr. Castello was admitted to the ward for observation after a fight and sustaining a laceration to his right forehead from a beer bottle and extensive bruising and scratches to his left arm. Mr. Castello had a pre-existing chest infection, Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus (DM), and asthma. Assessing, cleaning and dressing his wounds is an integral part of his treatment, as his DM can lead to delayed wound healing and increased chance of infection (Salazar, Ennis, & Koh, 2016). This could be successfully achieved through
The following report contains descriptions, critics and evaluations from selected experiences which I had from carrying out and completing the assignment for the Marketing management module. “Reflection is an important human activity in which people recapture their experience, think about it, mull over & evaluate it. It is this working with experience that is important in learning” (D. Boud, R. Keogh and D. Walker, 1985). There a many ways elaborated in the literature about how one should reflect, one simply being a diary/journal while others involve a more procedural approach.(Moon, J. , 2004). Using what I have observed in the literature, I will hopefully arrive at a clearer set of conclusions as to my experiences. This will be done by adopting a reflective style similar to that of the Atkins and Murphy Model of reflection.
I administered 2 DIBELS subtests to a kindergarten student for my LTCY 701 assessment class. The purpose of this activity was for me to practice administering the DIBELS and looking at the data to determine what the student needs to work on. I have administered a variety of DIBELS assessments in the past, so this was not my first time. I chose to work with Maddy, a kindergarten student, because she is at the emerging stage of literacy.
For the purpose of this essay, I have selected Gibbs (1988) Reflective Learning Cycle to reflect on an aspect of individual professional practice, which requires development in preparation for my role as a Registered Nurse. Gibbs (1988) Model of Reflection provides a clear description of a situation, analysis of feelings, evaluation of the experience, conclusion, and action plan to make sense of the experience to examine what you would do if the situation happens again.

Dignity and respect is something everyone has a right to. I have chosen this subject because it is an important part of nursing in that to be able to fulfil the role of a nurse is firstly to respect the person you are caring for. Dignity is a feeling of being valued, respected, having self-worth, supported and being able to show empathy and compassion for the people nurses look after. So for me it’s important to outline the principles in dignity and respect when looking after people who are vulnerable.
The study was approved by a local NHS research ethics committee, this is necessary to maintain ethical standards in order to protect participants (Bell 2008). Several good points were recognised in the article being; consent was gained prior to the commencement of the interview, therefore participants were protected having an idea of what will happen during the interview, which complies with ethical standards. The researchers also coded the questionnaires using numbers, this was to conceal the participant’s identity, and provide confidentiality. Semi structured interviews were used to collect data from twenty two people who had a diagnosis of dementia, or Alzheimer’s, and were selected through the National Health Service Consultant Psychiatrists of old age . Half male, and half were female, which ruled out gender bias, but it was not
