Peplau’s Nurse Patient Relationship
Henderson believed nurses have the responsibility to assess the needs of the individual patient, help individuals meet their health needs, and provide an environment in which the individual can perform activities unaided. What is an opportunity in your nursing practice that would benefit from application of Henderson’s theory? How does this align with the ANA’s definition of nursing? Provide at least one evidenced-based research article to support this recommendation.
Your initial posting should be at least 400 words in length and utilize at least one scholarly source other than the textbook. Please reply to at least two classmates. Replies to classmates should be at least 200 words in length.
This week you will create a two-part Power Point to discuss the following:
Peplau was the first nursing theorist to identify the nurse–patient relationship as being central to all nursing care. Peplau valued knowledge, believing that the nurse must
possess extensive knowledge about the potential problems that emerge during a nurse–patient interaction. Peplau’s theoretical work on the nurse–patient relationship continues to be essential to nursing practice.
■ Describe the phases of the Nurse-Patient relationship as defined by Peplau.
Align your presentation regarding the use of Peplau’s theory with a current practice example.
Provide a discussion of Orem’s Self-Care Deficit Theory. Identify and explain the three related parts? Identify a current nursing practice example where Orem’s theory would be relevant. Use at least one evidenced-based research article to support your practice example. The PowerPoint should include at least 3 outside references and the textbook. It should include title and reference slides and be 14-20 slides.
You may submit up to 2 extra credit commentaries on any of the assigned
(non-textbook) readings throughout the semester. Each commentary is worth 2 points of extra credit added to your overall point total for the semester. To earn these points, you must submit a 3-5 page double-spaced response to a selected assigned research article on Canvas. Your commentary should have a clearly stated argument which you then support with logic and additional academic sources.
