Midwives need to advise women, explain the options and help them make informed choices about their care. You'll need to be able to provide reassurance and counselling and must also be a good listener and respond to what women are saying. Women who have babies come from all sorts of backgrounds and life stages, so you'll be supporting a diverse range of women during one of the most emotionally charged times in their lives. You'll need to be able to stay calm and alert in times of stress, and enable women to feel confident and in control. It is also important to gain as much knowledge as needed about anatomy and physiology in the job.
The outcome of nursing care either positive or negative depends on the quantity and quality of the care provided to the patients by the nursing staff ("Nursing world," 2013) Each nurse should hold proper information and knowledge of nursing care such as knowledge of pressure ulcers. In this scenario every nursing personnel should provide the ultimate nursing care in dealing with pressure ulcers. In order to prevent any pressure ulcer each nursing personnel should be aware of the pressure ulcer concept, their prevention and the correct technique of reducing any other complication related to pressure ulcers. In this case the nurse and the CNA should use their knowledge of preventing any pressure ulcer. The first action is to assess completely the patient for any sign of pressure ulcer such as any erythema or bruising.
Safety in Nursing. Safety in Nursing According to Gordon, Darbyshire, and Baker (2012), “Extensive work in high-stakes industries has demonstrated that improving safety is not just about enhancing knowledge or skills, but also concerns the addressing of human factors and poor performance of non-technical skills that can lead to errors.” Safety has and will continue to play a vital role in nursing. It does not apply to only the patients, but also the nurses. This paper will address different safety techniques and how it affects the patients and their care-givers. Safety Techniques Nurses need to know and apply proper hand washing techniques, wear gloves during patient care, and use anti-bacterial hand lotion or soap.
I believe that providing the best possible care for each patient should be the primary concern of nursing. In doing so, the environment is crucial in the meeting the needs of the patient. Central concepts of nursing are “person, environment, health, and nursing” ( Masters, 2014, p.48).Careful consideration must be given in educating the patient about the illness. In early years, the responsibility fell upon the physician. In recent years, the responsibility has been transferred to the nurse to manage the patient’s environment in order to promote the patient’s recovery.
Professional Roles & Values--Task 3 It is imperative that the FNP recognize her role to better meet the needs of the client. The nurse should meet with the FNP to explain the resources that are available at the clinic (ie: other staff members) During the meeting with the FNP the nurse should have policies on hand that have specifics of what the FNP should do in certain situations (ie: when to refer the patient to the high-risk clinic). The FNP needs to understand that while she is concerned about the patient it is her obligation to ensure the patient receives safe, quality care. When delegating the nurse is still accountable and responsible for the nursing practice. The nurse should ensure that when they delegate the person they are delegating to is competent enough for the task.
According to Garity (2005), “The nurse’s ability to collaborate with patients, families, and multi/ intra-disciplinary health care professionals in the successful resolution of such dilemmas can affect the quality of health care” (p. 11). The nurse has an ethical obligation to give every patient the same level of compassion, care, and respect regardless of the nature of the illness (Chitty & Black, 2010). Whether or not the nurse agrees or disagrees with the decision that Marianne’s family has decided on, the nurse must ethically abide by the family’s wishes and provide the highest quality of care for her. The nurse’s highest level of commitments is for Marianne at that point. Although competing demands of patient, family, and physician have risen, the nurse’s first priority is always providing care that ensures patient safety and protects the best welfare of the patient.
All stakeholders responsible for the women health policy would evaluate the process to determined if the policy on women health objective are met.

The NASW Code of Ethics states that “2.01 Respect” The NASW Code of Ethics also dictates that social workers are ethically responsible to allow clients to have self determination “pg. 4 1.02 SelfDetermination”. In addition, the social worker is a professional person who will focus on their client’s issues. The social worker knows that this is a difficult decision for a woman to make. Therefore, the social worker will make sure that the woman knows all the aspect that comes with having an abortion.

Running head: DEVELOPING EVALUATION PLAN Developing Evaluation Plan David Fullington Grand Canyon University Professional Research Project November 3, 2011 Developing an Evaluation Plan When developing an evaluation plan, the researcher has to understand what changes are going to be made and they must have data prior to any changes that have already been made. It is important to know why the changes have been made and if they have had a positive or negative impact. According to Miguel and Rogan (2009), communication can be an influential tool and nursing skills are essential for attainment of optimistic healthcare objectives to touch others. Effective communication in healthcare is needed to deliver quality client care; nurses
