The necessity for nurses to be able to communicate effectively is vital for the continued care of patients. More specifically, it is crucial that Nurses are able the change their language patterns and vocabulary, depending on the person they are talking to.

Name 2 pieces of legislation that relates to moving and handling. What are the main points of these legislation?
Bowen Systems Theory Introduction It is essential to understand the behavior of a person before engaging in assisting them to overcome their challenges in counseling. However, in the course of understanding this individual, there would be barriers, as the person may not have the free will to disclose their actions. Therefore, this necessitates the help of the family to the nurse conducting the assessments to gather useful information that on application will help the patient in need. Therefore, to establish such information, through the association of the patient to the family or close friends helps in understanding the person and factors that led to the situation they face. Thus, in this aspect, this constitutes the Bowen Systems Theory, which has the sole purpose of assisting the psychiatric examination and assessment of patients (Bowen, Rawlins, & Martin, 2010).

Having this understanding, remaining flexible and advocating for the needs of terminally ill patients and their families at each stage amongst interdisciplinary teams will help to collectively bring all aspects of our being into balance. Strategies In the case of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas, three palliative care strategies for balancing their quality of life include symptom relief, identification of support systems, and caregiver relief (Clark, 2008, p. 534).

As a nurse administering high alert medications it is important to follow protocols and guidelines set in place to maintain the safety of the patients in our care. After observing a coworker administer the wrong high alert medication due to the similar packaging, it became evident there was a flaw in the process that was set in place. The role I took as acting charge nurse on the unit was to notify management and suggest two nurses must verify high alert medications prior to administration to prevent this issue from reoccurring. Stakeholders Full cooperation and engagement from key stakeholders is crucial in developing a multidisciplinary team that can create an effective plan of action to correct the issue of medication error.
