The objective of this report is to provide a reflection by considering Gibbs reflection model in order to evaluating essential information as patient care, data gathering, issues analysis and process information.
- Provide reflection by considering Gibbs reflection model over specified topics.
Gibbs reflective cycle
The Logan Tierney model help in assisting and measuring the patient’s ability to accomplish independed at each stage of care. Gibbs reflective cycle is known as the theoretical model which is used for reflecting own learning process.
Jim Laverty an old man who was at the age of 65 years has presented to the outpatient following fall from a windmill. He suffers from a pain in his right knee and right wrist and minor laceration to his right hand (Husebø, O'Regan and Nestel, 2015). He lived on a properly an hour’s drive from local hospital with his 80-year-old mother. His father was died in a farming accident. Further, blood pressure of Mr. Jim can be influenced by pain and anxiety. It is noticed that his BP is high but heart rate. Along with this, he suffers from pain and worried about his mother. Reason of high blood pressure of Jim can be due to hypertension. I noticed that when he takes rest for 30 minutes then its blood pressure dropped down. Injury of Jim lead to cause pain which is reducing his pain mobility and also affecting his ability to manage the importance of a farm and caring for an elderly relative. Working as a health care provider it is important for me to manage his pain and anxiety in respect to provide relief and determine the source of the high blood pressure (Hanson, and McAllister, 2017). Hence the above provided clinical reason factors can help in understanding the biological factors of RLT.
From the clinical reasoning cycle my feeling for him is that Jim Laverty was an old man w2ho fall from a windmill ad suffered from pain in his right knee. He was only a primary carer of his elderly mother after the death of his father. His mother was 80 years old who is suffering from dementia. Jim was worried about his mother and announced that he will go home after to ensure that everything is ok. I feel that Jim is at risk of self harm and has anxiety related to the social isolation. While communication I predicted that his mental health may be worsen. From the psychological factors of RLT it is analysed that personality, mood and temperament, personal situation etc. can harm an individual and make their condition more worse (Howatson-Jones, 2016).
From my past experience it can be evaluated that Lisa one of my patient was also suffer from the same type of issues. There were some psychological factors that impact him and make his condition more worsen (Moura, Nascimento and Caetano, 2015). Depression, lowliness etc are making his health condition more worse instead of improving. There are some issues related to Jim’s mental health such as Jim doesn’t talk much or smile. Along with this he does not take adequate amount of sleep which is not good for his mental condition. It is evaluated that Jim think is better from others but he was suffering from knee pain which cannot be ignored by both service provider and patients. There are some gaps in my understanding as because I was not able to understand few of phycological and biological factors that can affect an individua (Tanaka, Okamoto and Koide, 2018).
I have these gaps of Reflectig understanding because I had not treated much more patient without the guidance under the supervisor. There are various activities of living which is need to be understand by me such as breathing, dying, sleeping, mobilising etc which help an individual to manage their health. Reason for these gaps may be lack of proper knowledge related to the RLT factors that can affect the patients (Okamoto Koide and Tanaka, 2017). Along with lack of confidence my myself make me demotivated and I was unable to deliver quality services to patients. Apart from this, I analysed that for me it is important to make sure that before providing treatment to patient I understand their issues from which they are suffering.
CRC and RLT will be fit in a future practise as because it helps me in decision making process and for making sure continuity of care. CRC is known as cognitive process which is used formal and informal thinking strategies for collecting and analysing the information (Williams, 2015). Through the help of this an individual can easily develop knowledge related to patients starting from its background information and condition at present which they are suffering. The Roper-Logan model is effective enough in order to assess the patient’s relative independence and potential for independence in the activities of daily living. The biological factors in the RLT model help in addressing those factors which can impact overall health of an individual (Alligood, 2017). Along with this, environmental factor in roper’s theory will consider those activities that can impact on daily living on the environment. Hence both CRC and RLT are effective enough in order to fit in a future practice so that I can provide quality services to patient without leaving any gap.
In future I will try to carry out practices regularly so that I can become perfect in it. Along with this, I can work under guidance of healthcare professionals which will help in improving my mistakes and enhanced my learning. Along with this, I will also read different books based on nursing practise that will help in developing my knowledge and skills. At last before providing treatment to patient I will listened all their issues and provide them care according to their requirements. It will help in recovering their health issues on time. There are many patients who do not feel comfortable while sharing their health concerns. Therefore, it is important to help in and treat them in well manner which is effective manner (Williams, 2017).
