Cultural competency in mental health nursingCultural competency in mental health nursing

Submit an evidence-based practice paper about cultural competency in mental health nursing. An evidence-based practice paper allows you to explore best practice and help improve client outcomes on a psychiatric unit. Your paper should describe how you, as a nurse, will include – or have included – cultural awareness in a client diagnosed with a mental illness. The person you describe could be someone in your clinical setting, someone you have worked with in the past, or a theoretical client.

Remember that culture can also include gender equality, sexual orientation, and other cultures besides race and religion – including cultures unique to one particular family. Your paper should be at least 3 pages (double-spaced, not including the title or reference pages) in APA Format and include:

  • Assessment: Discuss what you would assess in regard to a client’s culture. For example, are there specific dietary requirements? Are schedule changes necessary to avoid conflicts with religious practices? Who is the spokesperson for the family? What would you assess?
  • Diagnosis: List any mental health nursing diagnoses this person has or may be at risk for. Include at least one cultural diagnosis.
  • Planning: What planning needs to be done to ensure the cultural and emotional safety of the client?
  • Implementation: What are interventions that would ensure the safety of your client in regard to culture? Include at least two interventions. For example, if your client has religious beliefs that affect the ability to take medications, what interventions would you create to ensure the client’s safety? What can you do to make sure the client’s cultural needs are met?
  • Evaluation: How will you evaluate whether your implementation was effective? Make sure the parameters are objective and measurable.
  • In your summary, discuss whether any completed interventions were successful. What could be done differently in the future? If the interventions have not yet been carried out, you might discuss some institutional changes that could be made to ensure cultural safety for all clients in that setting.
  • Your paper should utilize proper APA guidelines and include at least three scholarly sources to support your paper. A scholarly source is a source that has been peer reviewed and has appropriate authors that are credentialed.

The requirements of this assignment include:

  1. Identify obstacles and steps taken to manage and stabilize successful implementation of your change project thus far. *****Please talk about how nurses are not compliant with documentation and not too receptive with he change projects and the steps you would take to achieve this issue***
  2. Discuss the project implementation to date, the resources used, and continued support needed.
  3. Identify expected project outcomes and any timeline adjustments needed.***Make sure you add adjustment, do not make it look as it was easy to implement, because it was not****
  4. Discuss a summary of the project, the main points, and the findings, the significance of the project to the nursing profession, and any recommendations for future research.
  5.  Actual Outcomes/Evaluation: Discuss your measurable evaluation methods (indicators/metrics). Include any of the following that are applicable to your project: cost savings, improved efficiencies, access to care (visits/procedures/admissions), patient/family satisfaction, associate satisfaction, associate engagement, retention, clinical outcomes, injury prevention, and risk reduction. (***Please be detailed in the response, if any question let me know***)

You will submit a written paper using the format of the APA (6th ed.), including cover page, proper headings and references.

What part does external environmental analysis play in the development of value adding support strategies?

Assignment:

Exercises:

1. What part does external environmental analysis play in the development of value adding support strategies? What part does strategy formulation play?

2. What are the basic building blocks of structure? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each?

Professional Development:

Case #3: Community Blood Center of the Carolinas: Donations, Donations, Donations

Using Exhibit 9-6 (pp. 375 & 376) as an example, complete a strategic thinking map that compares the results of an internal environmental analysis against the value adding support strategies requirements. This map will extend and further articulate the strategic thinking maps developed in strategy formulation and the development of the service delivery strategy.

The value adding support strategies provide a powerful means to change the organization and create a competitive advantage, especially because some of the value assign support activities are less visible to those outside the organization, making the competitive advantage much more difficult to imitate or duplicate. Decisions concerning the organization’s culture, structure, and resources are strategic in nature and should be made by strategic thinkers.

Examine Marx’s writings on communism and socialism and compare them to how they manifested in reality?

Required Resources
Read/review the following resources for this activity:

  • Textbook: Chapter 4, 5, 6
  • Lesson
  • Minimum of 1 scholarly source (in addition to the textbook)

Initial Post Instructions
For the initial post, select and address one of the following:

  • Option 1: Examine Marx’s writings on communism and socialism and compare them to how they manifested in reality? What worked and what didn’t? What misconceptions do we have about his original intent based on what we see in past or current governments?
  • Option 2: Compare and contrast communism and fascism. Select one example for each to examine the origins of the governments, their accomplishments, and their failures. What accounts for the fact that the masses mobilized to support these movements? Elaborate.
  • Option 3: Examine Depression-Era social programs (select one or more to examine in detail). Were the fears of a communist take-over based on the implementation of these programs grounded in reality? Why or why not? How do they compare to social programs in place today?

Research, Practice Problems, And Questions

Purpose

This week’s graded topics relate to the following Course Outcome (CO).

  • CO 1: Examine the sources of evidence that contribute to professional nursing practice. (PO 7)
  • CO 2:Apply research principles to the interpretation of the content of published research studies.  (PO 4 & 8)
  • CO 5: Recognize the role of research findings in evidence-based practice. (PO 7 & 8)

Discussion

Professional nurses rely on research findings to inform practice decisions; they use critical thinking to apply research directly to specific patient care situations.

Think about an independent nursing practice problem you care passionately about and would be interested in searching for evidence. The below problems should not be used:

*medical/doctor/physician problems such as medications, or medications administration or effects, diagnostics such as EKGs, labs, cardiac catherizations.

*staffing, nurse-to-patient ratios, workforce issues are organizational/system /political/administrative/multi-stakeholder problems which nursing cannot solve independently.

  • Describe a significant nursing clinical issue, topic of interest, or practice problem that is important to you. Describe why you chose the problem/topic.
  • Write your clinical question in the PICO(T) format for your nursing practice problem. *To write your clinical question in the PICO(T) format, use the NR439_Guide for writing PICOT Questions and Examples found in your required reading or access the following link:

NR439_Guide for writing PICOT Questions and Examples (Links to an external site.)

  • List each of your PICOT elements.

Share why you care about this nursing practice problem and why you believe the problem would benefit from finding the best evidence.

Discuss the correlation between nursing education and positive patient outcomes.

1.

Discuss the correlation between nursing education and positive patient outcomes. Include current research that links patient safety outcomes to advanced degrees in nursing. Based on some real-life experiences, explain whether you agree or disagree with this research

2.

Discuss the difference between a DNP and a PhD in nursing. Discuss which of these you would choose to pursue if you decide to continue your education to the doctoral level and explain why

Evidence-Based Project, Part 5: Recommending an Evidence-Based Practice Change

Assignment: Evidence-Based Project, Part 5: Recommending an Evidence-Based Practice Change

The collection of evidence is an activity that occurs with an endgame in mind. For example, law enforcement professionals collect evidence to support a decision to charge those accused of criminal activity. Similarly, evidence-based healthcare practitioners collect evidence to support decisions in pursuit of specific healthcare outcomes.

In this Assignment, you will identify an issue or opportunity for change within your healthcare organization and propose an idea for a change in practice supported by an EBP approach.

To Prepare:

· Reflect on the four peer-reviewed articles you critically appraised in Module 4.

· Reflect on your current healthcare organization and think about potential opportunities for evidence-based change.

The Assignment: (Evidence-Based Project)

Part 5: Recommending an Evidence-Based Practice Change

Create an 8- to 9-slide PowerPoint presentation in which you do the following:

· Briefly describe your healthcare organization, including its culture and readiness for change. (You may opt to keep various elements of this anonymous, such as your company name.)

· Describe the current problem or opportunity for change. Include in this description the circumstances surrounding the need for change, the scope of the issue, the stakeholders involved, and the risks associated with change implementation in general.

· Propose an evidence-based idea for a change in practice using an EBP approach to decision making. Note that you may find further research needs to be conducted if sufficient evidence is not discovered.

· Describe your plan for knowledge transfer of this change, including knowledge creation, dissemination, and organizational adoption and implementation.

· Describe the measurable outcomes you hope to achieve with the implementation of this evidence-based change.

· Be sure to provide APA citations of the supporting evidence-based peer reviewed articles you selected to support your thinking.

· Add a lessons learned section that includes the following:

· A summary of the critical appraisal of the peer-reviewed articles you previously submitted

· An explanation about what you learned from completing the Evaluation Table within the Critical Appraisal Tool Worksheet Template (1-3 slides)

Submit Part 5 of your Evidence-Based Project.

Please Remember citations should match references. Thanks
