Strength Based Nursing Principles2Application of strengths-based nursing principles, the case study of Emma GeeThe nature of the healthcare system currently is gradually evolving. The new innovativesystem is technically founded on a vision embedded on primary care as well as community-basedhome care as well health promotion with hospitals maintaining its position as a core pillar of thehealthcare system. However, what is primarily different is the fact that the healthcare system isno longer the stipulated primary service. The revolutionized transformation makes it necessaryfor a new approach to practice. The approach is referred to as Strengths-Based Nursing Care(SBN) which is technically about capitalizing, mobilizing as well as developing an individual’sstrengths to facilitate healing and promote health. For RNs to practice SBNC, it is vital to havestrong nursing leadership skills that relatively creates a conducive condition to enable them toachieve this. In summary, Strengths-Based Nursing Leadership balances as well as acts insynergy with the SBNC. The paper will hence examine in an in-depth analysis the application ofStrengths-based nursing principles with a specific interest in the case of Emma Gee. Simply put,the paper will develop a comprehensive discussion that examines how strengths-based nursing,as well as healthcare, can be implemented for Emma at any point of her journey or through herwhole journey to effectively help her in the healing process. The paper will also put intoconsideration aspects such as critical transformation points in Emma Gee’s journey and alsopresent a based care plan for the critical transition point. Also, there will be a section that willpresent and demonstrate a holistic approach to the treatment process of Emma.SBN can be considered as a vital approach to provision of care (Gottlieb and Gottlieb2017). In SBN, there are eight core values that guide the nursing action and hence as a resultpromotes self-efficacy, empowerment, and hope. In the case of Emma Gee, the nurses needed to
Strength Based Nursing Principles3focus on her inner and outer strengths. Subsequently, this simply entails what the patient and herfamily indulge in to best help them deal with the situation and in minimizing the related deficits(Koithan 2014). It is important also to point out that across all the levels of care provision, SBNreaffirms the nursing goals embedded on promoting health, alleviating suffering through creatingconducive environments, facilitating healing and activities that bolster patients’ capability forhealth and the patients’ innate mechanism of healing. In the case of Emma, it is true to argue thatSBN matches her medical care, enacts the provision of a language that communicates thecontributions of the nurses to the patient and family health healing. SBN was also a very relevantfactor since it ought to empower the patient as well as her family to gain better charge andcontrol over her health and healing process (LoBiondo-Wood and Haber 2017). One of thefundamental roles of SBN is that it presents a new equilibrium to deficit-based care, which isironically a substantial attribute that lacked in the case study of Emma Gee. In this regard, SBNwould have ensured that there is the focus on understanding the related problems in a broader aswell as holistic context which lay focus on the inner and outer strengths. In this case, one of thestrengths that Emma Gee recounts that could effectively help the nurses is the concept of herchildhood which she agrees held a huge portion of her disability-free life.Technically, this marked some of the best memories of her life, a time when she couldfreely run from one place to the next. She also remembers her neighborhood as one exciting littleworld with good memories. Her favorite family was the Mullins family. Most important, sheagrees that her family made the most impact in her life. Being from a family of six, her parentsand four kids, their lives were filled with long-lasting positive memories. They also had strongattachments with their extended family and hence gives the impression that Emma’s family wasone of her strongest foundations. With this substantial information, strengths-based nursing
Strength Based Nursing Principles4could be implemented in Emma’s nursing care to address healthcare needs raised. A strength-based approach, in this case, will be relevant because it presents a genuine basis for addressingthe principal mandate of mental health services and advocates for the people taking charge oftheir personal lives in substantial as well as meaningful ways (LoBiondo-Wood, Haber, Berryand Yost 2013). It is therefore important for her medical team and her family to be part of aprocess that will analyze the causes of the problem, settle on goals that aim at fixing thisproblem, making effective plans to achieve the goals, implementing the set plan and finallyevaluating the effectiveness of the plan. The primary focus of those involved in this case shouldbe: working in collaborative ways on agreed upon goals, empowering the patient to take chargeof their care process, drawing upon personal resources of hope and motivation and focusing ontrusting and workable relationships (Townsend 2014). In relation, the strength approach used inthis case is a special case method of working with as well as resolving problems faced by EmmaGee. The approach first acknowledges the problems and difficulties. On the contrary, it works toidentify the positive attributes of the person’s strengths and also resources that are the vitalcomponents used to address the associated problems.Unconscious patients are delicate and hence should be nursed in different clinicalsettings. In relation, it is vital to access, plan and to implement nursing care plans for thisvenerable group of patients. In relation, this section of the paper will comprehensively examineone transition point of Emma’s journey which is specifically the immediate post-surgical carewhile Emma was unconscious. The plan will be in the form of a strength-based nursing care planfor Emma which includes a family focus as well as collaboration with the other healthcareprofessionals involved in her treatment process. Unconscious patients have no control overthemselves or the environment around them. Technically, this makes them highly venerable and
