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.
Assessment is a systematic process using a rational method of planning to identify a patient’s health and any actual or potential problems that need to be met and to provide interventions to meet those needs. (Berman et al, 2010) A comprehensive assessment establishes a database of information relating to the patient including visual observations during initial interview including, skin condition, cloths, hair, hygiene, demeanor and presence of pain etc. During the interview the nurse should gather family history and both subjective and objective data to establish baseline data as a reference point and an indicator to the effectiveness of interventions. (Berman et al, 2010) Subjective data is what the patient thinks, feels and believes and can also be referred to as the symptoms including itching, pain and worry or anxiety. Objective data is measured during the physical examination; it can be seen, heard, smelt, felt, observed, tested or measured against an excepted standard, including: skin color, bowel sounds, blood pressure, temperature, level of pain, urine analysis etc.
A reflection on the facilitators and barriers to the provision of optimal supportive and palliative care in the clinical setting. This essay shall critically engage with the issue surrounding supportive and palliative care. We shall begin with evaluating the philosophies, history and definitions within the supportive and palliative care, including concepts such as; quality of life, health and wellbeing, communication and the conflicts between the medical and nursing models. Following this introduction to the key areas, we shall then evaluate some facilitators and barriers as they are perceived in practice. This evaluation will engage with reflections on practise in my own experience, and vignettes are offered as a means to facilitate the discussion about the complex nature of supportive and palliative (S&PC) care and the disparities found between theory and practice.
The book focuses on instruments for assessing caring in the nursing literature. The book presents caring instruments that captures multiple essences of caring; attributes, characteristics, ability, attitudes, and complex interrelated behaviors (Watson, 2008). The book is to help nurse leaders and scholars with an up-to-date- critique and compilation of instruments used to assess and measure caring (Watson, 2008). Assessment tools are additional instruments that can be incorporated along with the nursing process to expand nursing assessment skills. The tools presented are; Mini Mental State Exam, Social Support Questionnaire and the Perceived Stress Scale.
This informs nurses’ practice from different types of evidence by professional expertises that collect and interpret the evidence for a valid outcome for clinical practices in supporting patients’ health and treatment. The ‘evidence’ in EBP requires a blending of research involving patient experience and clinical professions expertise as part of the evidence (Gerrish
When this method is applied to nursing it is a great tool. This is due to the fact that each patient has different cognitive factors, different psychomotor factors as well as an affective domain. Bloom’s Cognitive categories have to do with how the mind can process or regenerate the information provided during a teaching session. There are six sub-categories to the cognitive category. The six are remember, understand, apply, analyze, evaluate and create.
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.
As nurses, we should seek available resources to help patients to formulate decisions to utilize their rights and achieve their expectations if they confront a dilemma or they have inadequate health knowledge. “Nurses are in a unique
This uniqueness leads the nurse theorists to explore the concepts of nursing the way they perceive reality in nursing, which creates an opportunity for nurses to develop their own theory. This paper describes how Peplau defines the four concepts of nursing metaparadigm: nursing, person, environment and health. The focus of Peplau’s theory is nurse-patient interaction. This occurs when the nurse, as a competent expert, seeks to understand the meanings of the client’s experiences. Indicating that the theory of interpersonal relations is derived from the metaparadigm concepts of person and nursing.
A. Advance Quality Patient Care Patient quality of care can be advanced throughout the hospital by active participation of staff with the use of nursing-sensitive indicators. It can be accomplished by educating staff of what nursing sensitive indicators are, how they help improve the quality of care, and how they impact nursing care. For example, pressure ulcer incidence is one of the indicators, and it involves the amount of ulcers that develop during patient hospital stay (Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, n.d.). The staff should know that it is an indicator and needs to be reported to the appropriate personnel so that it can be tracked.
