Friedman Family Assessment By Keith Olson University of Phoenix /NUR 405 Abstract A Friedman Assessment was completed using the Ken family. To complete this assessment the nurse must identify data, developmental stages, environmental data, family structure, family functions, and family stress and coping.

In light of current policy developments, this essay examines how a community specialist practitioner can contribute in the evolving National Health Service (NHS). Due to its relevance to my practice, the essay will focus on district nursing and how distict nurses can contribute to adult services within primary care. District Nurses are at the heart of community care and play a leading role in the drive for quality, process of change and innovation.

District nursing teams provide services to patients who are housebound and unable to visit their GP or local health centre.

Blooms Research and Response Paper Jeremy Shur NUR/427 March 2, 2015 University of Phoenix Blooms Research and Response Paper One of the essential goals of continuing education in nursing is to enhance nurses' ability to improve patient care outcomes. Toward this goal, learners need to transfer learned knowledge to actual practice. Achieving efficient transfer requires knowledge of thinking paradigms in relation to specific subject content. Educators can facilitate knowledge transfer by developing instructional designs that incorporate subject content and cognitive processes related to the use of the topic content. Bloom's Taxonomy provides a framework for meeting this educational need.
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”.

Family Health Assessment Vann Joyner Grand Canyon University: NRS-429V May 9, 2015 Family Health Assessment One of the factors in planning care and health promotion for a patient is overall family support system . When a patient is ill it not only affects them but their family members as well. One tool used by a nurse to help collect family data is the family health assessment.

It focuses on ensuring that families acknowledge their health needs and address them by planning proper intervention strategies.
