Reply1 The influence of leadership can be far-reaching in practice and improving patient outcomes even when not in a formal role. Describe advocacy strategies that you can use as a leader to create positive change in your current workplace. In response to peers, describe a time when you provided leadership and the outcome. Was there anything that you would do differently? A leader can use some strategies such as analyzing the work capacity in the floor to keep the nurse-patient ratio within the safety range to prevent medical errors and patients care issues, empower nurses, being proactive leaders helping nurses who are overwhelmed for the assignment, ensure that nurses have the supplies to provide patient care, communicate with doctors to ensure patients with change of condition are evaluate and treat before their condition gets worse, empower organizational values and beliefs to ensure patient safety and team work. I am the clinical unit supervisor at the hospital where I work. I have the responsibility to ensure a smooth and safe work environment. Being a leader involves the capacity to communicate openly and with respect, seeing everybody as equal, support nurses to be able to provide safe excellent care. Lead with optimism. Create a positive and healthy work environment. Be visible and available to others. Foster interpersonal and organizational trust.Cultivate relationships with others. Set goals and provide feedback when necessary. Produce meaningful work. Encourage autonomy and individual growth. Communicate and be transparent. Use powerful but simple strategies to keep others engaged (Clark, 2018). Reference: Clark, C. (2018). 10 tips to boost employee engagement. American Nurse Today, 13(1), 12-14. Retrieved from https://www.americannursetoday.com/10-tips-boost-employee-engagement/ reply2 Every nurse is a leader in her/his own right. Our impact on the patient outcome is unquestionable. Along with effective patient outcome we are also responsible for the advocacy of our profession and making it a better workforce. Health care is reforming and nurses will benefit in future from it but nurses presently are the ones who deal with work stress. Hence to see any advancement in reforms, we need to advocate for our profession (Tomajan, 2012). Advocacy skills can be defined as The ability to successfully support a cause or interest on ones own behalf or that of another requires a set of skills that include problem solving, communication, influence, and collaboration (Tomajan, 2012, para. 7). I can be an active player in solving problems by listening to my team members concerns and suggesting solutions that are acceptable and beneficial to all. Working towards the implementation of those changes is also a way of giving back to profession and improving workplace environment. By taking part in shared governance is another way I can advocate to create a positive change in my workplace. Being a proactive nurse in itself is a being a leader who is willing to bring about positive changes in the system and its people. This would mean looking at the problem from different angles, collecting data to support it, using latest technology to maximize resources, taking everyones opinion into consideration and working towards a solution that is acceptable and aims at achieving common goal. Empowering my team members and coworkers is another way to improve the workplace dynamics. This would give a sense of power and confidence to each member and tap the talent and innovation that is in each one of us. It would also boost the sense of responsibility and accountability in each member. Team dynamics would show positive change with this and result in better care and better work environment.

Assignment Details Unit 5 Assignment: Theoretical frameworks Outcome Addressed: NU310-3: Examine connections among theory and nursing research. Purpose: The purpose of this assignment is for you to understand how theoretical frameworks relate to and support nursing research and ultimately shape clinical practice and improve patient care. After completion of this assignment you will be able to apply a theoretical framework to a clinical research problem. Instructions: You will create a brief (no more than 10 slides) presentation containing the following information: 1. Identify a clinical problem/topic that interests you or that you experience in your nursing practice. 2. Choose and present a theory (either grand theory or middle range theory) that would support and provide a framework to address the problem/topic. 3. Briefly discuss the theorist who created the theory and the history of how it was developed. 4. Present an example of how this theory has been used in nursing research. The presentation should include: Introductory slide (title, your name,). Brief speaker notes for each slide. Bullet points and colorful graphs or schematics. Reference slide with 3-5 scholarly references.
Scenario 1: T.J. When T.J was born a scan showed that she lacked a large part of her brain, the cerebral cortex. The cerebral cortex controls thoughts, body movements, senses, speech, memory, critical thinking and many other bodily functions. No medical intervention can assist with this lack of brain cells. Most babies born with this condition die within weeks although there have been cases of some living to several years with intense care. Because T.Jâ€™s mother had decided to give her up for adoption before she was born she was now a ward of the state which means she is under the legal care of the doctors and nurses at the hospital. The nurses are responsible for her continuous care and doctors visit daily to review her condition and treatment. T.J cannot not see or hear, control her body temperature or balance her body fluids or electrolytes. She vomits after every feed. The nurses sometimes insert a tube through her nose into her stomach (naso-gastric tube) which helps decrease the amount of vomiting, however it is one of the few events that upsets T.J leading to her unusual high pitched cry. Although normally lethargic and difficult to stimulate, T.J also cries when blood is taken for laboratory tests to test her electrolyte levels. Her temperature also drops dramatically when she is removed from the isolette for feeding and comfort measures such as cuddling. The nurses caring for T.J disagree about the care that should be provided to her. Some nurses believe that she should be fed through the naso-gastic tube and her electrolyte levels should be monitored even if this causes her discomfort while other nurses believe she should just be cuddled and fed by bottle even if it means she is not receiving much nutrition and her temperature drops dangerously low whilst other nurses are unsure about what care T.J. should receive. Q1. Using Kerridgeâ€™s model for ethical decision making resolve the ethical dilemma about what care should be provided to T.J. (Kerridge, Lowe & Stewart, 2011). Your answer should have an introductory paragraph and conclusion. Headings are only permitted for the steps of the model. Elsewhere full sentences and paragraphs should be used. Ensure that you address the marking guide as this is the only criteria the assessor uses to mark your paper. It is important to note that there is no need to address step 4 (consider how the problem would look from another perspective) of Kerridgeâ€™s model. (30 Marks) Scenario 2: Mary Mary is 86 years old and resides in a nursing home. She is alert and has no signs of dementia. Unfortunately she is very unsteady on her feet and has a history of falls. The nurses are becoming increasingly concerned that she may injure herself seriously one day. It is highly likely that if she falls she may break her hip and may never walk again. They have spent a lot of time explaining this to Mary and she is aware of the dangers. The nurses have been asking Mary to call for help when she wants to walk but she has not been doing this as she likes to be independent. https://charteredessay.com/category/sample-question/ They have also organised a walking frame for her which she is reluctant to use even though she is capable of using it properly and the nurses have explained the benefits. They have also included her family in the discussions to try and persuade her to use the walking frame and call for assistance but Mary is adamant that she wants her freedom. They have now suggested to Mary that when she sits down she wears a belt which is tied to her chair. The nurses hope this will remind her not to get up without asking some-one to walk with her and will also prevent her from getting up unaided. Mary objects. She is unwilling to give up her ability to move about the nursing home as she chooses. In desperation a nurse tells Mary that she must use the belt as it is a new rule of the nursing home (this is not the case). Mary reluctantly agrees to wear the belt because she is scared of the consequences of breaking the rules. The nurses are very relieved. Q2. Discuss the nurses actions in this scenario and whether they meet the guidelines as outlined in the NMBA Code of Ethics for Nurses in Australia and the NMBA Code of Professional Conduct for Nurses in Australia. Your answer should have an introductory paragraph and conclusion. You are permitted to use direct quotes for each value or conduct statement but must discuss the meaning in your own words (ie; â€œNurses value informed decision making (NMBA, 2008a, p.4).â€ This means that â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦.. (NMBA, 2008a) . Ensure that you address the marking guide as this is the only criteria the assessor uses to mark your paper. Make sure you consider all statements that are relevant to the scenario not just the ones that support your decision. (24 Marks) This assignment is worth 40% of the final mark for this unit.
