Emma has a 4 year old daughter and she is a single mum. She took a year’s break from her studies following the birth of her child. The two main issues that may affect Emma’s learning are; time management impacted by being a single mother and lack of experience in a forensic setting. When Emma commenced on the ward, we had our initial meeting within her first week and we identified her learning needs and issues that may affect her learning. Strategies for supporting her learning were also identified (see learning contract).
COMMUNICATION BASED REFLECTIVE ESSAY The purpose of this essay is to critically reflect, using Gibb’s reflective model (1998), on an event from practice where communication had a significant impact on the care of a woman accessing maternity services. Fictitious names will be used throughout to maintain confidentiality, in line with regulations set by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC 2008). One case that has been critical to my learning as a student midwife is that of Edivania; a 33-year-old Portuguese woman, who had lived in England for just under a year and had had her first child by emergency caesarean eleven years earlier in Portugal. I met her on delivery suite where she had self-referred in spontaneous labour, at 39 weeks. Before this she had, as documented in her notes, only accessed maternity and antenatal services three times.
Rudolfe Schaffer and Peggy Emerson (1964) studied sixty babies at monthly intervals for the first eighteen months of life; and a regular pattern was identified in the development of attachment (Hardy, S. 1995). They discovered that attachment developed in the following sequence:- Birth to six months - this is the indiscriminate attachment phase, the newborn is predisposed to attach to any human; most babies respond equally to any caregiver. After four months - preference for certain people; infants learn to distinguish primary and secondary caregivers, but still except care from anyone. After seven months - special preference for a single attachment figure; the baby looks to particular people for security and comfort; they show fear of strangers and unhappiness when separated from a special person. After nine months – multiple attachment; the baby becomes increasingly independent and forms several attachments.
* t: All people have biases and self-awareness is the key to understanding how these biases affect the delivery of health care to individuals, families and populations. * Select a vulnerable population as a focus of your paper assignment. * Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word paper in which you apply criteria to select a vulnerable population, study the demographics of that population, and reflect on personal attitudes and values towards those in that population. Cite a minimum of four references from the University Library. * * Grading criteria for vulnerable population and self-awareness paper PLEASE ATTACH RUBRIC TO THE SUBMITTED
Some parents allow their children to stay home alone for the first few hours until their return, and some chose an alternative method of after school programming. I have chosen to use afterschool programming for my granddaughter, as I am helping her mother to co-parent. In my observation I have learned that the afterschool program that she attends may be no more that a glorified babysitting operation. When she comes home her homework is wrong, messy, and incomplete. She tells me she has been taught by her teacher things like how to spell the word, “butt” and how to look for leaks by locating brown spots on the ceiling.
NESTLÉ: THE INFANT FORMULA CONTROVERSY 1. What are the responsibilities of companies in this or similar situations? * Send donations or work in an hospital organization to help the babies and their mothers * Sponsor events that have as theme the nutrition of infants * Nestlé needs to learn from its mistakes and should look like they care and are responsible for its issues * Must reposition their products 2. What could Nestlé have done to have avoided the accusations of ‘’killing Third World babies’’ and still market its product? * Support breast feeding and present its benefits * Search and learn about the culture of every possible market * Free tests for HIV 3.
Following on will be a discussion of the different ‘tools’ that can be used when following a person-centred approach to social work practice. Following this, the Valuing People, White Paper (Department of Health, 2001) will be discussed followed by a critique of the person-centred approach to social care. Lastly, a justification will be given as to why this approach was deemed appropriate in relation to the following scenario which was chosen by our group. Scenario – (248 words): Beth is a young woman who has a moderate learning difficulty and currently lives in supported living accommodation. Prior to this, Beth had lived in residential care since the age of twelve.
Claudia Kolker “The Immigrant Advantage: What we can learn from Newcomers to America about Health, Happiness and Hope” examines eight behaviors and cultural concepts brought to the USA by immigrants. Kolker wrote the book to show the academic, social, financial and health advantages immigrants teach us as she states “It is about the immigrants who are already here, and what they can teach us”. She focus on the individuals and communities from diverse backgrounds and alternatively compared with the American culture. Kolker is honest with her feelings and trepidations about customs. She does an outstanding job with a clear argument and engaged prose providing an insight into the various aspects of immigrant life and depicted the qualities and ideals immigrants had that could truly benefit America “Adapting the best habits of first-generation immigrants, I think, can help us recall our own”.
Throughout my twelve years of school there have been four teachers that have really stood out to me, and I hope to impact my students’ lives as much as they have mine. When my mom and I moved to Franklin, she worked at Needham Elementary School. Miss Marchant was a first grade teacher there, and she is the very reason why I want to be an educator. Ironically, I never had Miss Marchant as a teacher. Instead, everyday after school I went to her room to help her do anything she needed.
Like many cases around the world, when a child goes to pre-k for the first time, it is the first time a mother and her child are separated from each other for long periods of time. Such is the case in Japan’s educational system where the school day last longer and is six days a week. When a child opens the Obento-boxed lunch, the child is reminded of the nurturing relationship he or she has with his or her mother while they were at
