Compassion Energy

Compassion Energy

Author: Dorothy J. Dunn Format: Hardback Release Date: 13/08/2020

In this innovative study, clinical care expert Dorothy Dunn explores what keeps nurses in the nursing profession by examining relational experiences between nurse and patient in the context of the nursing situation. Heideggerian hermeneutic phenomenology grounded Dr. Dunn's approach to this book and was the primary method used to interpret the meaning nurse participants attached to their everyday professional lives. Compassion Energy is a qualitative study based on the accounts of eight registered nurse participants who provided rich descriptive data from which four relational themes emerged: Practicing from Inner Core Beliefs, Understanding the Other from Within, Making a Difference, and Nursing as an Evolving Process. The Heideggerian hermeneutic phenomenology method draws from the philosophical concepts of Heidegger's Being and Time, including authenticity, care, choice, conscience, decision, everydayness, responsibility, and being-there or existence (Dasein), all of which were utilized in the analysis. The hermeneutical interpretative process guided Dr. Dunn to synthesize these themes into a constitutive pattern of meaning which the researcher has named intentional compassion energy. In intentional caring consciousness, the nurse intentionally knows the patient as a whole. Compassion energy is the intersubjective gift of compassion that gives nurses the opportunity to communicate most effectively with their patients. It is composed of compassionate presence, patterned nurturance, and intentionally knowing the nursed and self as wholes. Intentional compassion energy is thus defined as the regeneration of the nurse's capacity to foster interconnectedness when the nurse activates the intent to nurse. Intentional compassion energy was discovered in the meaning of the nurse participants being in their everydayness of practice. The participants described the intention to care compassionately as the grounding of their practice, striving to understand the other, to make a difference while living their nursing careers as an evolving process. Compassion Energy provides an opening to discover what keeps nurses in nursing.

CMSA's Integrated Case Management

CMSA's Integrated Case Management

Author: Kathleen Fraser Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 11/08/2020

Written by case managers for case managers, this reference manual for nurses and other health professionals presents a CMSA tested approach towards systematically integrating physical and mental health case management principles and assessment tools. Since the health care field has undergone major changes such as the passing of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Mental Health Parity, Transition of Care & Chronic Care Management and the Medicare Act and CHIP Authorization Act (MACRA), health care workers must competently know how to integrate those new regulations, describe alternative payment options, and implement requirements for greater patient and family assessment, care planning, and care coordination in their practice. CMSA's Integrated Case Management delves into the role of the case manager and unpacks how case managers assess and treat complex patients. These are patients who may be challenged with medical and behavioral conditions, poor access to care services, as well as chronic illnesses and disabilities, and require multidisciplinary care to regain health and function. With a wealth of information on regulatory requirements, new models of care, integration of services, digital and telemedicine, and new performance measures that are clearly defined for nurses in nursing terminology, chapters outline the steps needed to begin, implement, and use the interventions of the Integrated Case Management approach. All content aligns with the newly revised 2017 Model Care Act, CMSA Standards of Practice 2016 as well as the CMSA Core Curriculum for Case Management Third Edition.

Key Features: Delivers an internationally renowned scholars' perspective on teaching grounded in Human Caring Includes exemplars of educators' lived teaching experiences guided by their caring pedagogical praxis Provides examples of students' lived learning experiences within a caring- teaching environment Offers reflective practice exercises for nurse teachers to enhance their caring pedagogical relationships with students Provides guided caring artistic activities to promote ways of knowing, doing, being, and becoming in nursing education This book provides an antidote for the continuous dominant biomedical and behavioral paradigm in nursing education.

A Theory for Patient Advocacy

A Theory for Patient Advocacy

Author: Manfred Mortell Format: Hardback Release Date: 24/06/2020

Patient advocacy for all human beings is a fundamental ideal as it assures the patient their rights and their safety when admitted to a healthcare facility. Nursing as a healthcare profession is complicated by the fact that it is concerned with vulnerable human beings, and ethical principles which need to be considered when providing treatment, or care for the patient. The logic for this book is twofold, the first justification for authoring this text was to enlighten nurses and other healthcare professionals to reflect on a dilemma which affects patient care and safety. A quandary in the literature which has been named a Theory-Practice-Ethics gap (Mortell et al, 2013). Patient safety and high quality of care are fundamental facets related to all healthcare practices. When people are admitted to hospital, they just presume that they will receive safe, quality treatment from healthcare professionals who have a duty of care. Society does not expect to be put at risk or be harmed, since the principal goal of healthcare is to augment care, safety and wellbeing, and so optimize the quality of people's lives (Leape, 2015; Wilson et al, 2009). The second justification for authoring this book, was to present an important new theory and model for patient advocacy to the professional healthcare community. The generated theory, states that, if healthcare professionals incorporate their religious, cultural and family values into their humanitarian ideals, they will be effective as patient advocates. The advocacy model which was generated the following components of advocacy, Vulnerable-acy , which was advocacy for the vulnerable, Familial-acy , which was advocacy that a family member would provide to a loved one, Cultural-acy was linked to culture, such as ethnic awareness and sensitivity, Religion-acy was coupled with a Muslim's Islamic holy obligations, however, this concept can be adapted for any religion and religious beliefs and Human-acy , which identified a person's humanity and must be provided by any member of the human race. The theory and model is therefore relevant for all healthcare professionals and providers, as it has a neoteric Islamic perspective that will hopefully guide nurses and health care professionals to reflect as advocates for their patients and the care that they provide.

More Than Medicine

More Than Medicine

Author: LaTonya J. Trotter Format: Hardback Release Date: 15/04/2020

In More Than Medicine, LaTonya J. Trotter chronicles the everyday work of a group of nurse practitioners (NPs) working on the front lines of the American health care crisis as they cared for four hundred African American older adults living with poor health and limited means. Trotter describes how these NPs practiced an inclusive form of care work that addressed medical, social, and organizational problems that often accompany poverty. In solving this expanded terrain of problems from inside the clinic, these NPs were not only solving a broader set of concerns for their patients; they became a professional solution for managing difficult people for both their employer and the state. Through More Than Medicine, we discover that the problems found in the NP's exam room are as much a product of our nation's disinvestment in social problems as of physician scarcity or rising costs.
