Wk 1 Disc CC

My assigned number was 6 which is: Inferior vs. Anterior Wall Myocardial Infarction

Initial post:Each student will be assigned a number randomly.  Whatever your number is, select the corresponding topic below, then post a minimum of 5 bullet points about the topic.Your bullet points should address key components of the topic, such as what, how, who, & why.  This information should not be basic things you learned in Med/Surg, but rather advanced critical care based. For example, with Posturing: discuss what causes postering, how do you assess postering, what disease processes cause different types of postering, why is it vital for a critical care nurse to understand the physiology of posturing. Think about this as a group effort to create a study guide. Use ONLY your textbook, but do not cut & paste from the book.Then create, find, or borrow a test style question about your topic & post at the bottom of your bullet points. The format needs to be multiple choice or select all that apply. Think NCLEX style. Each week include a paragraph with the results from one of your weekly interviews.Discussion post assignments are worth 20 points each as follows: 

  • 5 points for the quality of your bullet points.
  • 5 points for the quality of your question.
  • 5 points for answering the question of a peer as your response.
  • 5 points for the quality of your rationale.
    • Quality is defined as thorough and thoughtful while demonstrating professional level knowledge of the topic


Original Work, No Plagiarism, Cite and Reference

You (a research assistant) are administering an electronic survey about chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy to Edith, a participant receiving chemotherapy, in the infusion suite. The survey is administered using software on a iPad. You hand Edith the iPad and while she is clicking around to answer the survey, she accidentally navigates to the main page of the survey administration software, revealing the first and last names of everyone on the study. This is not the first time that a data privacy incident has occurred during the conduct of this study.

Discussion Questions

1. What security steps could you take in the future to prevent participants from navigating to the home page of the survey administration software when they complete the survey on the iPad? 

2. If you were the PI of this study, how would you explain to your research assistant the importance of data privacy/security?

3. If you were the PI of this study, should you report this incident to the IRB? Why or why not? 

4. In an alternate scenario, when you approach Edith to administer the survey, Edith says that she does not remember being apart of a research study. How would you respond in this situation? Should you still administer the survey? 

Self-Assessment of Leadership, Collaboration, and Ethics

  Imagine that over the past few months you have participated in several organizational projects and met many new people. The opportunities to collaborate and demonstrate your emerging skills as a leader prompted you to think about applying for a new position.

Delivering Client Centered Care



Shared decision-making (SDM) is a vital component of contemporary healthcare, transforming the landscape of patient-centered care across the lifespan. A significant body of evidence, such as the peer-reviewed article titled “Shared decision-making in primary care: A systematic review and meta-analysis of its effects on patient outcomes” by Stacey J. Pereira et al. published in the Annals of Family Medicine in 2021, underscores the merits of SDM in promoting health and delivering client-centered care.

SDM epitomizes a collaborative process where patients and healthcare providers harmoniously engage in making healthcare decisions. This process revolves around the amalgamation of the best available clinical evidence with the unique values and preferences of the patient. The systematic review and meta-analysis examined 57 randomized controlled trials (RCTs), offering compelling insights into the affirmative influence of SDM on various patient outcomes. These encompassed heightened patient satisfaction, an improved quality of life, reduced decisional regret, greater adherence to treatment regimens, and superior clinical outcomes such as enhanced blood pressure control, glucose management, and cholesterol levels.

There are two overarching reasons that substantiate SDM as an essential and exemplary healthcare practice. Firstly, SDM is rooted in the principle of respecting the autonomy and right to self-determination of patients. It elevates the patient to an active, informed decision-maker in their care, ensuring that their voice is both heard and honored in the decision-making process. Secondly, SDM consistently demonstrates its prowess in enhancing patient outcomes. This patient-centered approach fosters an environment where patients feel valued and involved, leading to increased satisfaction, a better quality of life, and a notable reduction in decisional regret. Moreover, it fortifies patient adherence to treatment plans and significantly betters clinical outcomes.

In the realm of healthcare, SDM transcends being a mere process; it becomes a conduit for the realization of optimal care and health promotion. It effectively personalizes care delivery, ensuring that interventions align with each patient's unique needs, values, and preferences. Importantly, SDM nurtures trust and rapport between patients and healthcare providers, serving as the bedrock of effective communication. When patients feel heard and respected, it paves the way for open and honest dialogues, which, in turn, bolster healthcare decisions and ultimately lead to improved health outcomes. Additionally, SDM is instrumental in empowering patients to be active participants in their health journeys. It fosters a sense of ownership and responsibility for their well-being, thus propelling health promotion efforts to new heights.

In conclusion, the evidence gleaned from the systematic review and meta-analysis by Stacey J. Pereira et al. underscores the pivotal role of SDM in modern healthcare. By respecting patient autonomy and consistently yielding positive patient outcomes, SDM epitomizes a best practice that is integral to the delivery of client-centered care and the promotion of health across the life span. Its capacity to personalize care, foster trust, and empower patients underscores its status as a cornerstone of contemporary healthcare delivery.

In healthcare allowing the patient to have the autonomy over their own healthcare decisions is an important part in delivering client center care and promoting health. It is important that all parties of the healthcare team work together to achieve the desired needs of the patient. An important “best practice technique” to perform to achieve this is to provide patient centered communication. This means that the patients care is centered around the clients values, health concerns, and beliefs. It is also important for the patient to have an effective trustworthy relationship with nurse or provider on their team so they can effectively establish any possible personal or behavioral related barriers that may interfere with the care of the client. 

Patient centered care reflects strictly on the specific needs of the individual patient and the best effective ways to provide them. Providing healthcare services that reflect and respect the needs of the patient results in positive outcomes for the clients health outside of the facility. Patient centered care requires the healthcare team to show respect towards the client, their needs, preferences, and values. When all parties are on the same page it makes an easier recovery process for the client and a smoother visit for the healthcare professionals.
