Decision Making When Treating Psychological Disorders

Decision Making When Treating Psychological Disorders

Psychological disorders, such as depression, bipolar, and anxiety disorders can present several complications for patients of all ages. These disorders affect patients physically and emotionally, potentially impacting judgment, school and/or job performance, and relationships with family and friends. Since these disorders have many drastic effects on patients’ lives, it is important for advanced practice nurses to effectively manage patient care. With patient factors and medical history in mind, it is the advanced practice nurse’s responsibility to ensure the safe and effective diagnosis, treatment, and education of patients with psychological disorders.

 

 

For this Discussion, you will select an interactive media piece to practice decision making when treating patients with psychological disorders. You will recommend the most effective pharmacotherapeutic to treat the psychological disorder presented and examine potential impacts of pharmacotherapeutics on a patient’s pathophysiology.

 

To Prepare

 

·        Review this week’s interactive media pieces and select one to focus on for this Discussion.

·        Reflect on the decision steps in the interactive media pieces, and consider the potential impacts from the administration of the associated pharmacotherapeutics on the patient’s pathophysiology.

 

Assignment

 

Post a brief explanation of the psychological disorder presented and the decision steps you applied in completing the interactive media piece for the psychological disorder you selected. Then, explain how the administration of the associated pharmacotherapeutics you recommended may impact the patient’s pathophysiology. How might these potential impacts inform how you would suggest treatment plans for this patient? Be specific and provide examples.

Work Environment Assessment

Clearly, diagnosis is a critical aspect of healthcare. However, the ultimate purpose of a diagnosis is the development and application of a series of treatments or protocols. Isolated recognition of a health issue does little to resolve it.

Plan for main ‘Foundations’ assignment

Further guidance on Plan assignment 2018

As this is a ‘plan’, it should suit how your mind thinks about the ‘Main’ task, so we don’t want to be too prescriptive about format for this task. So, bullet points, mind maps etc can be used if you wish.

That said, we are listing below some pointers for the MAIN assignment, as we wish to see an indication in your Plan of what you intend to include for each of these. At this stage, of course, you may have fuller information for some sections, but are quite sketchy for others – but try to give some indication for all of them.

…………………..

Download and use the Cover Sheet template (entering your student ID number, not your name).

Give a title, eg “Plan for main ‘Foundations’ assignment, on the topic of xxxxx”.

1) BACKGROUND TO YOUR TOPICa) Why and how is your topic considered to be a Public Health concern? Use data as part of stating your case (with sources, of course).

b) What, on balance, appear to be the main causal factors that need to be addressed to improve the public’s health?

2) PUBLIC HEALTH INTERVENTIONS ON YOUR TOPIC. What assumptions are being made in work on this topic :

· About health: eg. is the focus on prevention (pathogenic), or is a salutogenic/positive health perspective being adopted?

· About evidence/data: eg. Is professionals’ data on health the main source of evidence, or citizens’ own subjective perception of their health?

· About people & power: When a decision is made to take public health action, is it made by professionals/elites, or by citizens?

To help explain the above, you should relate the interventions/approaches to at least one of our 5 models of Health Promotion/Public Health, as well as discussing any specific theory that might underlie a particular approach (eg behaviour change theory), though this will vary for different topics & approaches.

c) On balance, do the types of interventions/approaches fit well with the main causal factors mentioned in your background, or is there a mismatch?

3) ETHICS. This may have been touched upon in earlier sections, but if not yet done, you should consider the interventions on your topic in terms of an ethical framework (eg Nuffield, which we will cover later in the module).

4) HISTORY & POLICY/POLITICS FOR YOUR TOPIC INTERVENTIONS. These may be covered as part of the Background, or later. On policy, a key consideration is: Does policy (eg of the current UK government) fit with the evidence on causes, or is there a mismatch?

Don’t use too many words on excessive historical detail – only if it adds context.

5) CONCLUSION. Summarise (briefly) at least one key point from each of the above 4 sections.

State what your actual word count is (& even if you write in prose/essay-style, try not to exceed, say 700 words for the Plan).

6) REFERENCES. Ensure these are all present, and in Harvard format. They are not included as part of your word count.

“Case Study: End of Life Decisions,”

The practice of health care providers at all levels brings you into contact with people from a variety of faiths. This calls for knowledge and understanding of a diversity of faith expressions; for the purpose of this course, the focus will be on the Christian worldview.

Based on “Case Study: End of Life Decisions,” the Christian worldview, and the worldview questions presented in the required topic study materials you will complete an ethical analysis of George’s situation and his decision from the perspective of the Christian worldview.

Provide a 1,500-2,000-word ethical analysis while answering the following questions:

  1. How would George interpret his suffering in light of the Christian narrative, with an emphasis on the fallenness of the world?
  2. How would  George interpret his suffering in light of the Christian narrative, with an emphasis on the hope of resurrection?
  3. As George contemplates life with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), how would the Christian worldview inform his view about the value of his life as a person?
  4. What sorts of values and considerations would the Christian worldview focus on in deliberating about whether or not George should opt for euthanasia?
  5. Given the above, what options would be morally justified in the Christian worldview for George and why?
  6. Based on your worldview, what decision would you make if you were in George’s situation?

Remember to support your responses with the topic study materials.

Wayne is a public health/community nurse who lives in South Texas

Read the following case study and answer the questions below. Response should be at least 75 to 100 words.

Wayne is a public health/community nurse who lives in South Texas. During the summer, Wayne’s community experienced uncontrollable wildfires that devastated the area. Because he lived in the area, Wayne was called upon to help triage and care for victims of the fires. Many of the wildfire victims were Wayne’s family, personal friends, and work colleagues.

  1. After the fires were controlled and the most critically ill residents were transported to the hospital, Wayne began recovery efforts. What is Wayne’s priority recovery goal for this population? What steps should Wayne take to reach this goal?
  2. Wayne performs psychosocial assessments on the wildfire victims. Which victims are more likely than others to need crisis intervention?
  3. Wayne is worried about the major health concerns after a disaster and how they may affect his community. What are some of these major health concerns? What can Wayne do to improve the health concerns?

Using evidence to inform clinical decision making

EVIDENCE FOR NURSING

Assessment Item 3: Using evidence to inform clinical decision making

Task: You have been provided with 3 clinical scenarios, each indicates an area of clinical uncertainty. Select a scenario that interests you and answer the question that follows.

Scenario 1:

In the course of your clinical placement in a surgical ward, you noted inconsistency in wound care. While some nurses use a sterile technique others employ a clean dressing change technique.

Is clean wound dressing a safe option for dressing of surgical wounds?

Scenario 2:

You are working as an RN in an emergency department. A 10-year-old child has been admitted to the department with a diagnosis of exacerbation of asthma secondary to bronchitis. The patient has been prescribed salbutamol.

What is the more effective method of delivery- a nebuliser or a spacer?

Scenario 3:

Nurses take different approaches in dealing with family members during the resuscitation of a loved one.

Should family members be allowed to be present during the resuscitation of a loved one in the acute care setting? Why, or why not?

Instructions

The answer to this question should be presented in an essay format. Headings can be used if they help structure your work. To perform well in this assignment, you need to understand the levels of evidence, be able to effectively search for relevant research, select the highest level of evidence possible, and consider the quality of evidence that you use to answer your question. You should also demonstrate your ability to accurately interpret research findings, synthesise evidence and reach a conclusion about your question.

Part 1: Introduction (500 words)

Briefly describe the process you used to answer the question. i.e. how you formulated a searchable question and developed a search strategy. Justify the approach you took in accessing the evidence. Describe the rationale behind the selection of each paper (hint: level of the evidence, quality of the evidence, relevance). Both quantitative and/or qualitative articles can be used, as appropriate to the clinical scenario and question you have developed. It is not necessary to present all the evidence you found (and you have limited word count to do this). The key thing is quality not quantity – so four or five research based articles are better than a large number of low level papers. Provide the print screens of the abstracts of the papers you have chosen.

Part 2: Main body of the paper (500 words)

Briefly present each paper and their main findings. What does the research show?

Part 3: Conclusion (200 words)

This is where you clearly state what you think the answer to your question is and why.
