Emotional Intelligence

Background:

Emotional intelligence is an important concept for healthcare professionals because they are in constant contact with other people. Effective and compassionate communication require high emotional intelligence, and the good news is that emotional intelligence can be improved through practice. Reading Emotional Intelligence 2.0 will give you a good background in the concept of emotional intelligence and also allow you to test yourself and see your current emotional intelligence score.

Instructions:

(1) After completing the reading, why do you think that an awareness of and improvement in emotional intelligence is something that may be needed in the clinical setting where you work or have worked? Give at least two specific examplesfrom your own experience.

(2) After completing the test from Emotional Intelligence 2.0 (using the code in the back of your book) you now have personalized information to assess your emotional intelligence according to the four dimensions described in your text. Go to pages 56 and 57 of the text and complete the EQ Action Plan. To find the strategies that you will use in your action plan, reference the appropriate chapter(s) in the text. You will see that there are specific strategies listed for each of the four dimensions (self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship management).

a) Choose and list four strategies that you want to implement in order to improve your lowest EQ dimension.

b) Discuss why did you choose these? What difficulties, if any, do you think you will experience in putting these into practice? Please be as specific as you can, and cite your text and any other sources necessary for support.

Please type your response in a Word document, spell and grammar check it, include citations, and then upload i

How Technology is Impacting Nursing Practice in 2020

Share This: 

/core/fileparse.php/116/urlt/How-Technology-Impacts-Nursing.jpg

September 10, 2019

 

In the last 30 years, technological advances have transformed the medical landscape. The days of meticulous charting and manually filing records are dwindling. With emerging technologies in telehealth and electronic recordkeeping, patients have more accessibility to their data than ever before. In the nursing field, technology allows RNs to improve efficiency and communicate more effectively.

 

While some nurses have oppositions about new technology, saying it takes personal interaction away from the bedside, a survey of 600 nurses show that 82 percent believe that technology positively impacts patient care. For them, the new tools available in health systems help add time back into their day—and with nurse burnout increasing in the U.S.—it may help nurses from leaving their practice setting.

 

Here is a look at how today’s current information technologies are impacting nursing practice:

Benefits of Nursing Technology

The advances in information technology and new devices have improved the quality of life for patients and healthcare professionals alike.

 

Improved Accessibility

Electronic health records (EHRs) have transformed the healthcare information technology space. An electronic health record is a digital version of a patient’s medical history. It can include progress notes, providers, problems, medications, lab data, etc. EHRs can improve patient care by improving the accuracy and clarity of medical records, and making data easily accessible to healthcare providers, doctors, and patients.

 

Advancements in telehealth have also played a large part in improved accessibility. Telecommunication systems have made it easier for patients separated geographically to receive nursing care via remote patient monitoring, live video conferencing and mobile health apps. In today’s environment, it has become easier for those in remote geographic areas to have access to quality care.

 

Decreased Human Error

New technologies can decrease the chance of human error. Nurses who work long hours or have understaffed units are at a higher risk of making mistakes. With new medical technologies, routine procedures are simplified. For example, automated IV pumps can measure the dosage of medication given to patients. This creates a quicker process for changing drip amounts and dosage.

 

EHRs also help with decreasing mistakes at the bedside. Since the data is readily available, EHRs can help reduce duplication of tests or delays in treatment.

 

Positive Impact on Nursing Shortage

Nurse burnout has been a factor in the shortage of nurses in the U.S. Prolonged mental and physical exhaustion can cause nurses to feel stretched thin, which leads to nurses leaving their practice setting. Emerging technologies in telehealth can help mitigate the burden put on nurses since it takes fewer nurses to provide adequate care.

 

Telehealth also provides nurses the opportunity to reach geographical areas that are identified as having health professional shortages. This includes locations in more rural regions that lack reasonable numbers of healthcare professionals; telehealth helps address these shortages by effectively providing care to patients remotely. These strides in telehealth technology can ultimately reduce healthcare costs by decreasing ER visits and hospital admissions.

Potential Drawbacks of Nursing Technology

The rapid growth of technology in the healthcare space has identified potential obstacles that hospital systems may face.

 

A Threat to the Human Element

Improved technology can threaten to replace person-to-person interaction between nurse and patient. Nurses have the role of establishing a relationship with their patients and their families; they are responsible for explaining medications, taking vitals and helping patients with daily needs. In some hospitals, nurses are required to wheel in their workstation (a computer on wheels) to record information about the patient. While typing information on a computer is perceived to be more trustworthy by patients and healthcare professionals alike, it will inevitably create less face-to-face interaction.

 

As a response to the aging population, robotics has become an emerging field in healthcare. In Japan, nurse robots are being manufactured and tested as a way to lessen the burden of nurses; however, these robots lack empathy and a “human touch.” More research is required before understanding if these machines will improve patient care.

 

Generational Divide

Nurse leaders understand that workplace technology integration can be largely influenced by generational differences among staff. In the nursing field, baby boomers make up roughly 50 percent of the entire RN staff. Baby boomers are perceived to be lacking in tech-savvy skills and may be slower to adapt to new devices. According to a journal published in 2015, rapid technological advances are a factor that cause older nurses to retire.

 

Data and Security Threats

As with most any computerized information, EHRs kept in the cloud or in the form of big data are more susceptible to being hacked. Cybercrimes for hospitals are not uncommon as patient profile data can be sold on the black market ranging from $20 to $50. If an inexperienced employee accidentally clicks on malware, a whole EHR system may be at risk of being compromised. Hospitals that have a breach in data or EHR can pay hefty fines depending on the severity. Security threats to a patient’s data can ultimately make a facility think twice before storing important patient records in the cloud.

The Bottom Line

The evolving technological advances in nursing are the wave of the future in healthcare. Emerging new technologies in EHRs, AI, apps and software development are becoming increasingly popular as more hospitals and facilities integrate them into their health system. While there are drawbacks that come with telecommunication, it’s clear that information technology has the potential to improve the quality of life for nurses and RNs alike.

A journal is just between you and me no need to respond to a colleague

For this weeks assignment – 

Recognizing and Being Open to Possibility as a Leader

Background: Hierarchies exist in American culture and the healthcare system that impact how people relate to one another and how much power they have in different interactions. For example, as you know, whereas men hold the majority of leadership positions in American healthcare, in nursing men are the minority. However, male nurses still, on average, make more money and advance faster in their field than female nurses do. The traditional hierarchy of “men being in charge” and having authority has been successfully challenged in many ways, but it can still be observed if you look for it. Secondly, you read The Art of Possibility, which discusses some strategies you can use in your interactions with other people to be open to possibilities for learning in those interactions. Even situations that seem 100% bad contain possibilities in them for learning something new or improving your own understanding of your work and yourself. An awareness of the hidden (and sometimes not so hidden) hierarchies in our culture as well as an openness to possibility in our interactions with others will help you to be a more calm and relatable leader.

Instructions: After reading the  book, please respond to both of the following:

1) After reading the article “Structural Inequality and Diversity in Nursing”, take a look at page 5 at the section “Oppressed group behaviors in nursing.” Make a list of at least three specific instances when you have observed these characteristics, either in those you work with or in yourself. Briefly describe some of the details of these instances and how you felt about them at the time.

2) Based on your reading and reflection on rules one through twelve in The Art of Possibility, choose four of the twelve rules that you found most interesting and relevant to your own life experiences.

a) List the four rules

b) For each rule, describe what it means to you and why you think it is relevant or useful to your personal/professional life.

c) For each rule, give a specific example of its relevance to your personal/professional life, citing the book and any other sources as needed to support your answer.

Please type your response in a Word document, spell and grammar check it, include citations, and then upload
