Ways Of Knowing In Nursing

 

Nurses have sought to understand the art and science of nursing since the time of Florence Nightingale. Six fundamental ways of knowing underpin nursing science. These ways of knowing include: (a) personal, (b) empirical, (c) ethical, (d) aesthetics, (e) emancipatory, and (f) unknowing. Consider how these ways of knowing contribute to knowledge development by addressing the following.

1-Which two ways of knowing have had the most influence on your understanding of nursing science?

2-Which two ways of knowing have you not considered previously and how will these ways of knowing shape your future nursing practice?

3-Provide an example of how nursing science encompassed the six ways of knowing to bridge a gap to improve a healthcare outcome.

I need that each questions would be answer separated and that you use 3 sources not later than 5 years.

Important: Complete this assessment first and complete all other assessments in the order they are presented. Professional Context

Nurses are leaders in problem identification and solution, planning and implementing patient care strategies to address problems in the home, hospital, and community. This assessment will help you develop a problem statement for a patient, family, or population health concern. Instructions

Throughout this capstone course, you will be investigating a patient, family, or population health problem relevant to your practice. For this assessment, you will identify the problem that you will address throughout your clinical practicum in this course, as well as begin to establish your evidence and research base to plan, implement, and share findings related to your project. The Problem Identification Template [DOC] will guide you through development of a problem statement, evidence collection and analysis, and best practices to help you create your implementation plan for the second assessment in this course.

Your submission for this assessment will be the completed template. When working through the template, you may use the resources provided in this course; however, most of your research and search for evidence will be conducted by you. Use the Capella University Library, professional organization and government resources, and relevant organizational best practices as sources of evidence. This is the capstone course for your BSN degree; your goal is to demonstrate your achievement of the program outcomes through your work on this project.

The following are some health issues that would be appropriate for your project: Diabetes self-management. Hypertension management and prevention. Medication reconciliation within a family or group. Parkinson’s disease support group. Patient family education communication improvements. Postoperative home care.

This list is by no means exhaustive. You should choose a patient, family, or population health issue that is relevant to your practice and organization; you must be able to study the problem in your practicum effectively.

You must complete this assessment first. This assessment is your opportunity to plan your practicum and to establish a collaborative oversight process with your course faculty. You must not begin any direct clinical activities or submit any other assessment until Assessment 1 is completed and assessed by faculty. Any other course assessments will be returned with no feedback until Assessment 1 is complete.

So please remember: Assessment 1 needs to be reviewed and approved by your faculty. Assessments 2, 3, 4, and 5 should not be submitted until you have received feedback on Assessment 1. Scoring Guide Criteria

Your submission will be assessed based on the following criteria: Define a patient, family, or population health problem that is relevant to personal practice. Analyze evidence from the literature and professional sources to define and guide nursing actions related to a health problem. Propose strategies to improve patient or population outcomes related to a health problem. Reflect on state board nursing practice standards relevant to a selected health problem. Communicate professionally in writing that is clear and logically organized, with correct grammar, spelling, and use of APA style.

Please identify your relationship to the patient (friend and family) and how you made contact with the individual. Remember to only use the individual’s initials in your assessment to protect privacy. CORE ELMS

Completion of this course requires a remote rather than a face-to-face clinical practicum. You are required to log your time in the CORE ELMS system just as you have for past courses with clinical interaction. The CORE ELMS link is located in the left-hand navigation pane. Additional Requirements Length of submission: Use the provided template. Most submissions will be 2 to 4 pages. You do not need to include a title page. Be sure to complete the reference page at the end of the template. Number of references: Cite a minimum of 5 sources of scholarly or professional evidence that support your central ideas.

Importance of Developmental Assessment

   Developmental assessment for adolescents and children is important for  various reasons. The assessments are carried out because of a concern  associated with the child’s developmental disorder or delay (Sadock,  2014). Hence, such assessments can help identify potential developmental  problems and the necessity for further diagnostic assessments. Also,  they can offer an objective description of the child’s deficits and  abilities, establish suitability for programs, and assist in the  preparation of suitable interventions. A psychological evaluation is  recommended to children and adolescents for numerous reasons. One reason  is that children and adolescents may have behavior or even attention  issues both in school and at home. Other reasons are that some kids and  adolescents could be subjected to mistreatment or bullying, be anxious,  or even depressed or have learning disorders (Angold, & Costello,  2000). Usually, when children and adolescents have learning difficulties  or appear to be developmentally behind compared to their peers, they  are most likely advised to go through a psychological evaluation. That  kind of assessment is essential since the results help individuals know  the areas that the child and adolescents do well in and those areas that  need to be addressed (King, 1997). Generally, carrying out a  psychiatric evaluation helps to promote children’s and adolescent’s  improvement in emotional functioning and even their academics. It allows  psychologists to develop appropriate strategies to assist these  children and adolescents in realizing or achieving their full  capabilities.

Two Assessment Tools 

 The  two assessment tools are related to diagnostic interviews. The first  instrument is the MINI Kid (Mini international neuropsychiatric  interview for children and adolescents. The instrument covers a broader  range of diagnosis which are apply to both children and adolescents. Its  validity and reliability have been tested and is recognized as a useful  tool in diagnosing adolescents and children. The other instrument is  CAPA (child and adolescent psychiatric assessment) which is a structured  interview that covers the age range between nine to seventeen. It  evaluates those disorders that impair cognitive, emotional, behavioral,  or physical functioning. The instruments are used in children and  adolescents and not children because first the child and adolescents  setting are different from those of the adults and hence the triggering  factors may be different and so does the interview questions (APA,  2013). Second, adolescents and children are at a continuous  developmental stage and hence the internal factors such as cognition and  behavior may vary from adults and hence the lack of use. Also, the  assessment for children and adolescent is complex and since the adults  were once children and adolescents, the use of such instruments may not  be necessary. Lastly, what may affect a child, or an adolescent may fade  in adulthood.

Treatment Options 

   One of the treatment options in adolescents and children that may not  be used in adults is related to ADHD treatment Sadock, (2014). This  includes the use of Clonidine. This is because this treatment option  helps symptoms such as aggression, impulsivity, and hyperactivity, all  of which may diminish in adulthood and hence not highly prescribed in  adults. The second treatment option is the play therapy. Although such  play therapies related to recreation and art are recommended for adults,  others such as playing with toys, and other children items are not  used. This is because such techniques are meant to assess the functional  attributes of children hence not effective in adults.

Role of parents 

   Parents play a crucial role in the treatment and assessment of children  and adolescents. First is offering support and encouragement during  both processes. They also ensure that the process is done successfully  through effective collaboration and engagement. Parents’ engagement in  psychiatric evaluation and treatment is vital. Their involvement gives  them the opportunity, from the beginning, to ask relevant queries and  contribute toward the various treatments and even numerous supports that  are recommended for the child. There are others essential role that  parents play in the evaluation and treatment process since they give  valuable information concerning their children and also give ideas,  proficiency, and insight regarding the approaches that work excellently  for their children and families (Romanelli et al., 2009). Parents are  also expected to put into action strategies in their homes to support  their children to achieve their treatment goals. Asking questions is  also essential since it helps parents to learn more concerning their  children’s mental disorders or statuses. Generally, parents are a  crucial asset in the entire evaluation and treatment procedure since  their involvement positively affects the treatment’s outcome. Also,  parents’ involvement empowers them to keep on nurturing their children’s  development.
