Managing Chronic Disease using Bloom's Taxonomy of Education Sandra Nicole Jurries 427 October 29, 2012 Marc Verlasky Managing Chronic Disease using Bloom's Taxonomy of Education Due to advances in health care managing chronic disease in the elderly is a growing area for nursing. Nursing must adapt and find effective ways to educate this population of people about their disease and how to manage it. There are several areas that can impact the way health care education is perceived; the illness itself, cultural background, economic status, and educational background. Studies have been conducted that show that Bloom’s Taxonomy can give a base outline to measure the progress of teaching and how to know that the patient is effectively applying the education. Bloom’s Taxonomy outlines these areas as cognitive, affective, and psychomotor.
The student nurse was using both verbal and non-verbal communication, including using warm body language and eye contact. Good communication skills are essential to the nurse to allow her to identify problems with the patient (Kenworthy et al 2001). This will also allow the student nurse to build and establish a therapeutic relationship with the patient. According to Roper et al (2000, p124) the term assessing should be used rather than assessment as it is an ongoing cyclical activity. This means
Blooms Research and Response Jennifer Crane NUR/427 June 24th, 2013 Gina Stephens Blooms Research and Response Blooms Taxonomy of Education is a communication between caregivers for patient education and related issues to patient care. The research done by Bloom is a valuable tool for Nurses to communicate with staff members and their patients. There are three domains involved with taxonomy: Cognitive, Affective, and Psychomotor. Each of these domains measure the level of understanding achieved. In this paper will teach how learn how Bloom’s Taxonomy applies in a case study, how it is a benefit to nursing instructions and will describe each domain.
Bloom’s Taxonomy of Education NUR/427 Bloom’s taxonomy or also known as the revised bloom taxonomy is a great teaching tool to use when teaching patients about their illness. It consists of three categories and then multiple sub-categories. Blooms taxonomy addresses not only the patient’s readiness to learn but it address the appropriate approach to each individual situation. It gives a systematic way of approaching a topic and the audience that will be learning. When this method is applied to nursing it is a great tool.
Family Health Assessment Courtney Stansberry Grand Canyon University: NRS-429V August 25, 2013 Health promotion is at the fore front of healthcare today. As nurses we need to be able to assess families and educated them appropriately to help prevent illness and disease or prevent them from getting any worse. Gordon’s functional health patterns are used by nurses as a foundation to assess an individual or family that will help a nurse identify lifestyle patterns. “In addition to providing a framework to assess individuals, families, and communities holistically, functional health patterns provide a strong focus for more effective nursing interventions and outcomes” (Edelman & Mandle, 2010). This stronger focus helps to enable the nurse to make more educated decision on what to focus on with an individual or family and prioritize so that the family is not overwhelmed.
This essay focuses on what Evidence Based Practice (EBP) entails in nursing and its significance for patients and health care professionals in practice. In relation to EBP in nursing, a selected practice concerning the management of epilepsy in children and adults will be critically appraised using the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE 2004) guidelines and a research trial (Simister et al 2005) as the main enthuses of this essay. This involves different types of evidence used to inform clinical practice. The different types of ‘evidence’ concerning the management and treatment of epilepsy will be discussed as to how it can inform clinical practice by comparing other similar studies about new and old antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) and, if they too can be reliable in informing clinical practice for people with epilepsy. However, due to the word limit of this essay only one new AED (topirimate) out of seven will be discussed and compared to the older AEDs Soudium Valporate and Carbamazipine.
New knowledge is applied into practice through evidence based decision making, quality improvement processes, instituting policy changes, and providing patient and community education opportunities. With background in OB/GYN, my interest is the role of Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner. My aim involves collaborating with other healthcare professionals to provide high quality individualized care, promote health education, disease prevention, advocacy, and counseling to women in a community setting.

Assessment Tool Analysis Paper Assessment tools are used to evaluate and help with the intervention of a patient’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being. They enable medical practitioners to help the vulnerable make informed and appropriate choices for a normal life. Assessment tools can be useful in improving family dynamics, building more cohesive relationships, and promoting healthier lifestyles. There are many different types of assessment tools, some are more effective than others and it is the responsibility of the practitioner to determine the tool that best fits the dynamics of their patient's particular situation. Jean Watson is recognized for her theories on human caring and the way nurses give care.
Health Promotion Health promotion is an important part of a nurse’s role. To help prevent disease and promote healthy lifestyle options a nurse should encourage patients through educating them and communicating effectively to enable patients to adopt Health promoting attitudes and behaviours NMC (2008) This essay will be focussed on a patient cared for by the author, on a clinical placement and a description of how a situation of health promotion had been delivered by the student nurse. The names of the people have been change to protect confidentiality in accordance to the NMC (2008). As a Student Nurse it is imperative to recognise in depth and explore what health promotion is and how we can empower patients to make informed, healthy decisions regarding their health. The WHO 2011 states that “Health promotion is the process of enabling people to increase control over, and to improve, their health.
This paper will provide understanding of the theory of nursing, key concepts of the theory of comfort, and how these concepts and theories are relatable to current nursing leadership. The Importance of Nursing Theory Nursing theory is a key component of effective nursing. Nursing theory establishes principles, rationales, and helps enhance overall knowledge of nursing (Davidson, 2012). The common question that arises in nursing school is “Why do we need to learn nursing theories?”. Although it may seem cumbersome to learn, having a firm understanding and knowledge of nursing theory will one day allow the student nurse to develop a nursing theory of their own.
