Topic 5 DQ 2

Aug 22-26, 2022

According to the textbook, nurses in various settings are adopting a research-based (or evidence-based) practice that incorporates research findings into their decisions and interactions with patients. How do you see this being applied in your workplace? In addition, how can you strive to make spirituality and self-care a practice for your patients as well as yourself? How does this practice align with the Christian worldview?

Nurses use EBP to provide patients with safe, quality care and to improve outcomes. When developing EBP, one is looking at research already conducted (Helbig, 2018). My employer uses EBP for hospital-wide wide patient care. For example, I work on a GI floor. Our patients receive new ileostomy or colostomy placements regularly. However, EBP shows enhanced recovery is better than traditional recovery methods. We encourage our patients to ambulate within 4 hours post-op, intake 500mls within 8 hours post-op, and start patients off on a regular diet. Most patients are educated before surgery.

Workplace spirituality in nursing is mostly defined and researched from the individual viewpoint. The definition includes dimensions of inner life, meaningful work, interconnectedness, transcendence, and alignment between values (Pirkola et al., 2016). A sense of community and meaningful work are the most important dimensions of workplace spirituality in health care.

My goal is to view every shift as 12 hours to make a difference in my patients’ lives. Not just the medical part of the tasking and the critical thinking that comes naturally. But to give my patients the TLC they need in this, their hardest hour. They are down, ill, alone at night. I develop a rapport with them and make sure they are as comfortable as possible. I help them get clean, and pain-free (if possible), meet needs, tidy the room, clarify the night’s plan of care, and expectations from me, and make sure the patient and I are on the same page as far as the doctor’s plan. This may be reiterating the day Ds notes. I offer prayer if appropriate. I always offer a warm blanket, fan, and/or aromatherapy. I do my best to give holistic care and treat each patient with the utmost dignity and respect.

Selfcare is a personal struggle, to be honest. I do need to prioritize “me” time more than I do. I truly feel guilty not spending my extra time with my family since I’m so tired with the night shift and school all the time. I try and use any extra time to be with my family. I want to start going for 30-minute walks daily. It’s been a personal goal for a while.

When it comes to my Christian worldview, I try to treat others the way I want to be treated. It’s a simple rule, but it works for my personal and professional life. I try every day to be a better human than the day before. I am not a perfect mom, wife, sister, daughter, best friend, student, nurse, tia, or daughter-in-law, but I do my best. I do have a personal relationship with my savior. I know where I’m going when my earthly days are done. I’m confident with my actions on earth. I do my best, that’s all we can do.
