ASSESSMENT 21Clinical GovernancePart 1Consumer participation in healthcare service is the most important foundation of primaryhealth service. The benefits include better health outcomes, relevance, justice, access to services,quality of healthcare, and so on. According to Renedo et. al. (2015) active participation ofconsumers, makes the service more effective and accessible and consumers feel empowered tomake decisions.According to Ricciardi et. al. (2013), involving patients, who are concerned about theirhealth should be involved in the process as they will be able to participate in heath andpreventive measures. Furthermore, they will be able to self-manage to achieve better outcomes.According to a study on patients with chronic diseases, it was found that “aware” patients werethree times less likely to suffer from a negative health impact or medical error than those who arenot confident about skills and knowledge of process.According to Finkelstein et. al. (2012), another way to involve consumer to healthcare isby receiving feedbacks from consumers regarding the service they got or what changes they wantto imply. Their rights and responsibilities should be promoted to staffs, carers, and clinicians toavoid any discrimination.
ASSESSMENT 22Part 2Being a Registered Nurse (RN), it is my responsibility to engage patients to the care process. It isimportant for the patients as they become confident about the treatment and feel secure athospitals as well. I would create a partnership with my patients to engage them in the process aswe both are focusing on the same goal, better health outcomes. Gaining the trust of patients is asimportant as providing them with medicines because it helps them to recover psychologically. Iwill take their questions and queries regarding healthcare seriously as according to the reports ofTobiano et. al. (2015), patients who feel respected and important by their healthcare provider, areless prone to medical errors during care process. Secondly, my effort will be to educate patientsabout their disease and the care I will be providing to them in effective manner. I will askpatients to explain those back, as if they have absorbed any proper information, they will be ableto revert those back to the society. I will be assuring that the education they are getting, areactually being followed or not. As according to Holloway & Galvin (2016), role of nurse iscoaching as well as teaching. I also need to simplify the terms and ways according to theunderstanding of the patient.
