A nurse can take these categories and apply it to the management of a patient with a chronic disease. A patient education plan for Diabetes includes remembering the names of the different insulin prescribed for treatment. The patient should be able to list the steps of insulin administration. After the patient has received verbal, written, and video education on Diabetes one should have an understanding of the disease and can recognize the signs of hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia. Once the patient has an understanding of the disease they can apply this knowledge to real-life situations by following a diabetic diet and choosing the appropriate food to maintain proper glucose levels.
The Health Belief Model (HBM) is a psychological model that is use in nursing to explain and predict health behaviors of patients diagnosed with chronic disease like MI. In educating the patient using this model, the nurse will focus on the attitudes and beliefs of the patient. The nurse will encourage the patient by educating to recognize and promptly response to signs and symptoms of any complication from the MI. In-depth education opportunities will be planned and evaluated. The overall goal is for the client to return to pre-hospital living condition in an improved state of wellness.
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.
Bloom's Taxonomy of Education One area many nurses strive to improve on are patient outcomes. With the education that nurses receive, they can apply their knowledge to develop teaching plans that will enhance the patients understanding of their own learning needs. Bloom’s Taxonomy of education gives nurses direction on how they will apply their knowledge into a more systematic process for educating their patients. Blooms Taxonomy was originally published in 1956 and was mainly used for classifying learning outcomes. In 2001 Bloom’s Taxonomy was revised to include a structure for categorizing cognitive learning.
Sometimes patient’s neurological deficits get resolved after a few hours or days and that calls for change of treatment plan. How do I know the nursing intervention to perform on stroke patients? It’s through empirical knowing. Empirical knowing is the ‘science’ of nursing, it can be systematically organized into general laws and theories that are used to describe, explain, and predict (Carper, 1978).Empirical knowing is knowledge obtained from school lectures, text books and journals. Empirical knowing focuses on evidenced based practice which leads to effective nursing practice.
Question: Demonstrate your understanding of the guiding principals of `motivational interviewing by critiquing examples of them from your digital recording. Conclude by evaluating the contribution of motivational interviewing to nursing practice. To start this assignment this student is going to give a brief introduction of motivational interviewing. Then in the body of the essay one is going to demonstrate her understanding of the guiding principals of motivational interviewing by critically analyzing ones efforts at motivational interviewing. Next to conclude this assignment one will go on to assess the contribution of motivational interviewing to nursing practice.
The model of hypothetico deductive reasoning proposed by Elstein et al., (1978) served as the main frame work for the analysis. The major out come of the study was that although hypothetico deductive method of clinical reasoning appeared to be predominant in diagnostic procedure the collaboration between the therapist and patient occurred at various stages. Also it describes how therapist used collaborative information in patient’s management. This paper explores these findings and relating them to the research in the field of reasoning. This paper also includes discussion of findings, and employment of above mentioned models in physical therapy practise and how it is use full while teaching students in health profession.
In this paper, I will discuss about patient teaching that I have done as a student nurse at Antelope Valley Hospital on the Medsurg Unit. Some of the teaching are how to promote a productive cough with deep coughing technique, how to use an incentive spirometer, explanation of Thoracentesis procedure, the importance of HbA1C in diabetic management and lastly, teaching of noninvasive technique to help with urinary retention and the use of straight catheterization. Patient teaching is one of the many important elements in nursing care. Nurses provide and teach basic health information pertaining to the patient’s condition and demonstrate important self-care techniques to the patient so that they can independently perform to take care of themselves. With this knowledge, the patient can self-promote their wellbeing.
The student nurse will reflect on health promotion issues as this stood out to me in several areas, The student nurse discovered that although we can nurse a patient back to health it is so important to make the patient aware of how necessary it is for them to participate in their care by adhering to what is recommended to them by various members of the Multidisciplinary Team and the devastating consequences that the patient can encounter if advice is ignored. The student nurse will use the Gibbs (1988) reflective cycle, this encouraged thinking systematically about all phases of an activity. Gibbs (1988) is descriptive with regards to feelings, evaluation, analysis, conclusions and action plans, therefore ideal for this assignment. Although I experienced many different aspects of care regarding health promotions this assignment will concentrate mainly on a single event that will stay with me throughout my nursing career. According to Scottish Government (2010) Healthcare Quality Strategy for NHS Scotland, nurse’s carers and people at the heart of the healthcare and care delivery services should improve conditions in NHS Scotland and the care provided, on reading this strategy I understand a nurses responsibility, but the importance of patient participation in their own care is invaluable and the cooperation and communication with the Multidisciplinary Team is essential to complete patient care package to the highest standard.
Blooms Taxonomy of Education Benjamin Bloom’s Taxonomy divides the learning process into three categories or as Bloom describes as “domains” they are “Cognitive,” “Affective,” and “Psychomotor.” This is important in the nursing profession since the nurse is the primary educator for the patient. Bloom’s taxonomy offers the nurse as an educator the framework for meeting the educational goal of transferring learned knowledge to actual practice. Part of the nurse’s duties is to instruct patients about the disease process and the necessary steps to take to insure proper care. “The Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy provides a framework for meeting the educational need.” (Su, & Osisek, July 2011). In Bloom’s taxonomy there are six different levels on the cognitive domain.
