ACS services

The nursing process is a tool that puts knowledge into practice. By utilizing this systematic problem-solving method, nurses can determine the health care needs of an individual and provide personalized care.

Write a paper (1,750-2,000 words) on cancer and approach to care based on the utilization of the nursing process. Include the following in your paper:

  1. Describe the diagnosis and staging of cancer.
  2. Describe at least three complications of cancer, the side effects of treatment, and methods to lessen physical and psychological effects.
  3. Discuss what factors contribute to the yearly incidence and mortality rates of various cancers in Americans.
  4. Explain how the American Cancer Society (ACS) might provide education and support. What ACS services would you recommend and why?
  5. Explain how the nursing process is utilized to provide safe and effective care for cancer patients across the life span. Your explanation should include each of the five phases and demonstrate the delivery of holistic and patient-focused care.
  6. Discuss how undergraduate education in liberal arts and science studies contributes to the foundation of nursing knowledge and prepares nurses to work with patients utilizing the nursing process. Consider mathematics, social and physical sciences, and science studies as an interdisciplinary research area.

Atlanta

Respond by providing feedback on each colleague’s therapeutic approach based on a narrative family therapeutic perspective. Support your feedback with evidence-based literature and/or your own experiences with clients.

Main Post

I am addressing the case of a family called X. The family has five members and the man recently lost his job after the organization he worked for closed in Atlanta. The man is also become alcoholic and violent due to the wrangles. The wife also reported episodes of domestic abuse in the local police department severally. On the other hand, the wife works in a store and her wages are hardly enough to pay the family bills. Due to their condition, the family moved to a cheaper house studio since they can no longer afford the rent.

In will uses a systematic therapeutic approach on the family. Systematic approach is ideal since it is a derivative of other models. The model has phase like social step, problem phase, Interaction, goal and task setting (Taylor, 2017). In the social stage, I will interact with each of the family members in regular activities. During the phase, I will inform the family members about the purpose of the therapy and the contributions in the exercise. The stage will also enable me to make observations about the interactions about the phase (Taylor, 2017). The problem stage I will pose a question to each of the members of the family to understand if the problems exist. In the next phase, the interactional stage allows the members to discuss problems like alcoholism and how to pay the bills (Shapiro, 2018). I will use the interaction phase to understand some of the dynamics like the hierarchies, collaboration and the communication sequence. The goal-setting phase will involve highlighting the problems and what could be done. I will work with the family members to bring forward solutions to the problems. When the family is involved in decision making compliance is high (Shapiro, 2018). I will also use the phrase to define the parameters of the study. Lastly, is the task setting stage- that will involve wrapping the session by making a decision (Shapiro, 2018). I will offer the solutions and homework to the family. The solutions will involve increasing communications in the family. Another solution is the man looking for a means of living that could sustain the family.

The systematic therapeutic Approach is efficient since it will replace gendered and stereotyped roles and behaviors that are flexible and offer deep breadth. The therapy will also involve a redistribution of power and providing an equitable balance while at the same time enhances communication between the family members.

However, the woman often exhibits social behavior. Antisocial behavior could alter a systematic therapeutic approach. The behavior typically limits their conversations.

s Charles encounters a rare condition

bioethics

Generally speaking, bioethics helps determine what is responsible by considering four key principles: autonomy, beneficence, nonmaleficence, and justice. The principle of autonomy is about respecting people and their free will. Beneficence and nonmaleficence are two sides of the same coin: doing what is helpful, and not doing what is harmful. Justice, in this context, has to do with being fair in giving out both benefits and risks.

Using your own words, answer the following questions:

1. How these models relate to one another varies with each circumstance?

2. In your personal opinion which model may be the most important?

Models:

1. Ethics of Care Model

2. Narrative Ethics Model

3. Complementary/Alternative Medicine (CAM)

Requeriments:

f goal-focused individuals

What are your thoughts

High performance team refers to a group of goal-focused individuals with specialized expertise and complementary skills who collaborate, innovate and produce consistently superior results. The group relentlessly pursues performance excellence through shared goals, shared leadership, collaboration, open communication, clear role expectations and group operating rules, early conflict resolution, and a strong sense of accountability and trust among its members (Katzenbach, & Smith, 2016). These characteristics are the driving force for the high-performance teams. Shared goals give the team a clear vision for what they are working towards and allows the teams to stay glued to the same goals to which yield maximum output. Collaborations and open communication are the driving forces for any successful team.

One of the biggest factors that contribute to the success of any business is whether or not its employees are able to perform together a team. With increasing competition, it has become extremely important to encourage creativity in the office, in order to improve productivity and promote healthy employee relationships. Working in teams enables employees to be quicker and more effective in their work, as compared to people who work on projects on their own. Collaborating also makes employees more responsible, which goes a long way in raising their motivation levels, especially when teams work virtually.

There is no doubt that motivation is the driving force by which humans achieve their goals. Motivation can be intrinsic or extrinsic. Intrinsic motivation is driven by an interest or enjoyment in the actions required to achieve a goal, without relying on external rewards or pressures. Extrinsic motivation on the other hand is the opposite and requires external rewards such as money or external consequences such as demotion (Vallerand, 2017). Extrinsic motivation by itself (without intrinsic motivation) forces a person to measure outputs and pay little attention to the input such as hard work and collaboration. Therefore, to extrinsically motivate a group I would set group and individual goals and measure outcomes. Also, rewarding those individuals who achieved their goals to motivate those who did not meet their goals is a way of inspiring individuals who are extrinsically motivated. However, to motivate an individual who is intrinsically motivated would begin by creating working environments which provoke competence, and enthusiasm to achieve both personal and organizational goals.
