As a health care professional trained in different approach, I assessed my client based on the theory and learning experience that I have had. The client was been diagnosed with dementia, limited mobility, and inadequate verbal communication. I undertook a full assessment to a client with a sacral pressure sore. Assessment using observation was been completed to the sacral area, and graded the level of pressure ulcer using the Braden scale. The nurse mentor was been informed about the type of dressing and intervention that should be provided to the client, along with the explanation with the rationale to the procedure that I have decided to use.
Patients will have to go through an evaluation based on; overall strength, range of motion, flexibility, balance, posture, body mechanics, coordination, endurance, and general mobility. (aurorahealthcare.org) After they go through the evaluation process they will have a treatment program designed for them to target the areas they are weak in and hopefully strengthen them. Physical therapists will use an array of equipment and environments to assist them in implementing the most beneficial treatment program for the patient. They will use basic gym equipment such as; medicine balls, treadmills, stair climbers, dumbbells, ramps, exercise bikes, stability balls and electro stimulation machines, plus many more, too many to list. Occupational therapy is a service that helps patients strengthen the way their nervous system functions.
I seek her permission and consent to teach her about medication administration procedure. The consent attached in (appendix 1). Identifying Learning Needs ,Planning and Managing Student Experience. In the learning process the important things to do identifying my leaner needs. Vision for learning and teaching enhance the quality of student in learning experience by providing a support and well-resourced learning environment.
According to Bulman and Schutz (2008) the art of reflection can help students and nurses learn from experiences and improve their own practice. To do this they need a self-awareness that enables them to describe honestly how a particular exposure affected them (Bulman and Schutz 2008). In order for practitioners to reflect there are different theoretical models used as a framework for reflective practice. Gibbs (1988) developed a reflective framework involving six stages which aim to guide the practitioner by asking a series of cue questions. The first stage sets the scene of the reflection by asking for a description of the event, the second stage looks at what the practitioner was thinking and feeling thirdly
Introduction In this account I will concentrate on an established clinical skill that I have been practicing for many years. Presenting this assignment reflects the assessment and care delivered to a patient within my working practice. Using Gibbs model (Gibbs, 1988) as a working model will allow my thoughts / feelings, evaluation, analysis, conclusion and action plan to be deduced. I will apply critical thinking and underpinning knowledge to evidence based practice and thus concludes with an evaluation of increased clinical competency and personal development. Reflection as a learning tool allows me to identify the positive and negative aspects of my practice and to draw upon previous experiences and apply them to new situations “Reflective practice has, however, the potential to help practitioners in all fields unlock the tacit knowledge and understanding that they have of their practice and use this to generate knowledge for future practice”.
Application of Theory Paper Nursing theory is the framework that defines nursing practice, establishes standards of care and provides the information essential for functioning patient care. Theory presents logical and educated reasons for nursing actions, based on structured, written depictions of what nursing is and what nurses do (Rousell, 2010). When problems arise within the educational, research, administration and direct patient care settings; theory supplies a foundation for dialog. When using theory to facilitate resolution of a nursing issue it guides leaders in the direction of the common goal of affording superior patient care (Rousell, 2010). In this paper I will apply the Ida Jean Orlando’s Nursing Deliberate Nursing Process Theory to patient boarding in the Emergency Department (ED), a current issue at the facility I am employed.
Reflective Account The purpose of this essay is to provide a reflective account on a clinical intervention I was involved in during practice experience. An adapted versions of Driscoll’s (2002) What? Model will be used in order to guide me through the reflective process (see appendix 1). Reflection on an experience is a learning activity requiring an ability to analyse one’s self in relation to what has happened or is happening and make judgements regarding this (Driscoll 2007). In accordance with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (2008), confidentiality shall be maintained throughout.
Occupational Therapy Speech 2 Outline Purpose Statement: By the conclusion of my speech, I would like the audience to be informed about what an Occupational Therapist does and what type of education credentials are needed to perform that job. Thesis Statement: Ever wonder how people with disabilities deal with everyday life? How do they take care of their homes? How do they adjust to the work environment? By reading this information you will find out that they learn to deal with these situations with the help of an Occupational Therapist.
Hand washing and infection prevention is one of the most under stressed areas of healthcare. It is the job of Team A to guide and direct the learning and behavioral changes needed to be successful as a healthcare worker. As nurse educators we realize the basic understanding of critical thinking lies within the Socratic Method, this is the strategy we will use to present the information on infection prevention. According to DeYoung (2009) “In this method, all thoughts are treated as if they are in need of further development and refinement, regardless of how reflective they may be” (p. 226). Our purpose is for the students to have clarity about our topic and as instructors we will hold them accountable for the information presented.
Situated cognition or its other name is cognitive apprenticeship or situated learning is defined as “a theory of instruction that suggests learning is naturally tied to authentic activity, context, and culture.” From our understanding, situated cognition requires experts and novice learners so thus the learning process will occur. The experts will teach the novices based on the real world problem or daily life problem setting. For example, we had mentioned in class that a housemanship doctor will do his practical in hospital. In order to make him become an expert, he must learn from the expert that is someone who is entitled as a senior doctor. Thus, situated learning takes place when the housemanship doctor learns from the senior doctor in a real hospital environment.
