Concept Analysis of Effective Walker & Avant’s methodology (2005) is used to analyze the concept of the word effective; this provides clarity to the meaning of the concept and identifies its unique attributes, particularly in relation to medical treatment. Antecedents and consequences of presumed effective medical treatment are discussed followed by empirical referents, which aid in illuminating the concept of effectiveness. Assumedly, “effective” is an adjective most healthcare professionals and their patients would hope to use in describing the outcome of the treatment or the care provided. The purpose of this concept analysis is to understand that for physicians and nurses to provide truly effective treatment, it must attend to multiple needs of the patient, not just their illness. Not only is it important for healthcare providers to construct and implement a treatment plans, but also to involve patients in medical decision making about their treatment.
Health care communication is essential in coordinating activities within the health care team to manage the care of each individual patient. This paper will discuss the importance of health care communication, in relation to theories and concepts in communication and the relevancy of effective personal health care communication between health care professionals and patients. “Communication is a two- way process where meaning is stimulated in the mind of others using verbal and nonverbal messages.” (Grover, 2005). Participating in giving and receiving of information that produces a mutual understanding is essential to effective communication. Health care communication is any communication between health care professionals that deals with the assessment, delivery, or evaluation of health care using interpersonal communication, small group communication, or mass communication (Northouse & Northouse, 1998).
Based on these two premise, communication in nursing focuses on attending, listening, intervening and exploring the contents of information while observing the feelings of the patient (Arnold and Boggs, 2009, pp37-38). This piece of work will evaluate different aspects of my own learning; focusing on the importance of good communication and its influence in clinical practice. Throughout the essay, the significance of different communication skills will be explored. The essay will also evaluate different aspects of personal and professional values and their relevance in clinical practice. References will be made to some health related legislations such as; The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) code of conduct, Care Quality Commission (CQC), Francis Report, Department of Health (DoH), The National Health Service (NHS) constitution and the fundamental values of care (Six C’s).
How does service availability affect access of care? Service availability affects access of care in several ways. Availability of service will assist in structuring individual’s immediate health needs, determine care facility and choose caregiver. Because care is tailored to meet specific individual need, overall health of patient is managed. For example, a patient may be in a care facility as a result of a chronic illness, other health needs will also be addressed.
Physician Collaboration Perform assessment of the patient’s current health status to address health promotion needs, functional status, developmental and lifestyle issues to maximize health outcomes. Implement specific therapeutic modalities to facilitate individualized care to the oncology patient in collaboration with multidisciplinary team and document plan in EMR. Patient Advocacy The Oncology Nurse Navigator will guide and direct the patient through a collaborative environment of health care disciplines to maintain dignity and autonomy of the individual patient. Assessment of patient’s ability to navigate through the healthcare system and identify potential barriers (such as continuity, coordination of care and communication with providers and health care team). a) Appropriate referrals to insurance case manager / patient navigator to assist patient with insurance barriers.
These beliefs, values, and practices influence the health promotion and disease prevention in which they seek (Edelman & Mandle, 2010). The assessment of these practices is an essential role nurse’s play in caring for each individual and family. By using the family focused approach the nurse can determine the support and care a family can provide to the patient. The nurse can then assess the family’s potential of obtaining optimal health. The purpose of this paper is for the nurse to complete a health assessment of a family by using Gordon’s 11 functional health patterns and the system’s approach.
Additionally, “The health belief model and social learning theory assist the nurse in formulating an action plan that meets the needs and capabilities of the individual making health behavior changes” (Edelman & Mandle, 2010, p. 248). This model states important points that serve as guidelines for nurses to help enable them to determine an individuals’’ willingness to change health behaviors and to understand the factors that contribute to their state of health (Edleman & Mandle, 2010). They are as follows: • Individual perceptions or readiness for change • The value of health to the individual compared with other aspects of living • Perceived susceptibility to a health problem, disease, or complications • Perceived seriousness of the disease level threatening the achievement of certain goals or aims • Risk factors to a disease attributed to heredity, race or culture, medical history, or other causes • Perceived benefits of health action • Perceived barriers to promotion action As nurses, we must always act on the opportunity to educate and recognize those opportunities as they arise. We must be able to evaluate the willingness of individuals to learn and to accept new ways that they can improve their health. We do have such a large amount of face-to-face contact with people that it is only in our benefit to take advantage of educational situations.
The responsibility of the Physician assistant requests insight, sound judgment, savvy trustworthiness, suitable interpersonal aptitudes, and the ability to respond to crises in a cool and contemplated way.

They require information and abilities which permit them to capacity viably in an element health awareness environment. The physician assistant is an agent of the doctor, treating the patient in the style and way created and coordinated by the managing doctor.
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. Orlando's Deliberate Nursing Process Theory emphasizes the shared relationship between patient and nurse. It describes the responsibility of the nurse is to find out and meet the patient's immediate needs for assistance. Nurses have to use their discernment, thoughts about perception, and the feelings produced from their ideas to explore the meaning of the patient's behavior. This method assist the nurse in discovery out the root of the patient's suffering and offer the aid they require.
Understanding effective communication and the interpersonal relation skills begins with knowing the contexts of communication, forms of communication, interpersonal interactions, communication and language needs which includes preferences (Mcsherry, 2012, pg 24). These relations constitute the LO1 framework. All health care and social workers need to have effective communication skills in order to work effectively with diverse range of people within the healthcare services (Feldman, 2008 pg
