Healthcare collaboration | Nursing homework help
My observation revealed that the Care Model was the dominant model in nursing care. Care Model emphasizes personalized, patient-centered care. It takes into consideration individual preferences and needs. This was evidenced by the nurse’s focus on addressing each patient’s unique situation and responding in ways that best suited their particular circumstances—such as offering a blanket for an elderly woman who mentioned feeling cold or talking with a younger man about his recent move to a new city.
The nurse also seemed to be keenly aware of her role in supporting patients’ autonomy and self-care capabilities; she would often ask questions such as “Is there anything else you need? How do you feel we should proceed? How can I help?” She even inquired about whether they had any spiritual or cultural beliefs that might guide their decisions. She also showed respect for autonomy and allowed patients to decide their care, despite the risks.
