Recovery will not be a concept you probably fully understand yet and so it is vital as you prepare for this that you become familiar so that you do not do yourself or consumers an injustice by misrepresenting their contribution to care.
Be clear about what recovery means and the principles for applying recovery models of practice. Read the recommended readings, look through the education sessions you received, reach out to the recov... rosepanions and recovery support services if you are unclear and need the relevant perspective.
A recovery plan differs from a treatment plan or a nursing care plan, it is informed mostly by the consumer. In your interactions with the consumer, you need to be introducing recovery concepts and discussion, helping them envision what it means to them so they can propose some recovery goals/strategies. The consumer does not have to be the same as the one used in the first two CPATS, however in some long stay areas this is feasible.
I will not tolerate made up efforts, I can tell the difference in encounters that have occurred and those which would have ideally occurred or make the academic requirements easier to complete.
• reflection of the development of the therapeutic alliance, and the associated challenges,
• as well as describing the nurse's role in realising the consumers recovery goals [3 minimum]
Personal recovery has been defined as "being able to create and live a contributing life in a community of choice with or without the presence of mental health issues" (Australian Health Ministers' Advisory Council, 2013).
- five-star recovery model
- developed for each patient that is admitted to hospital (OHealth, 2016). five critical pathways
I don't want paragraphs about what recovery is what I want to see is that you have used these key models to inform your nursing approach. That will be obvious and evident to me in the content of your reflection on the development of the alliance and the specified interventions.
Introduces the reader to the chosen consumer and briefly outlines their presentation and background. After reading this section I will have an idea of who this person is, why they're in hospital, why they are the way they are now and what treatment is occurring. [Your experience of recently using the Biopsychosocial model and SP's should be very helpful here in providing relevant information and not just chunks of the chart]
Key New Challenges
MSE, Risk assessments and/or nursing assessment and any other assessment utilised.
Provide an interpretive description of the relevant assessments of the selected consumer (include family/carers where appropriate). Please note the word interpretive, I do not need just a description need you to make sense of what you heard and found. For example, there may be non-adherence with medication, and you also note poor insight, and you support the linkage between these with appropriate references regarding their relationship.
Demonstrates collaboration with other multidisciplinary team members
From your point of view!! Remember a critical reflection is to take a very curious stance at the outcome of a situation and explore the potential factors that contributed. These factors may be personal, organisational, environmental, consumer driven, the list is endless. Possible factors include age, gender, experience level, own biases, cultural differences, power imbalance, rapport, Mental Health Act, prescribed medications, leave conditions etc.
Eg: I found **** irri 'tability and lack of insight quite challenging and difficult to manage while trying to ask the necessary questions in order to complete a comprehensive assessment. However, I allowed her to express her thoughts and make meaning of her situation without judgment, which may have helped the bond according to Newell (2020).
The interventions should where possible come from the consumer, not from your interpretation of what they need, that is called a nursing care plan.
For example: After interview with *** and during the development of *** recovery plan, ** P'"' • identified that there were three areas in *** recovery that required nursing support.
Explore the intervention in terms of aligning with recovery principles, for example does it strengthen connectedness?
The intervention must be nursing related and explore your role in implementing.
Avoid giving too much theory behind an intervention, instead explain how you as a nurse implemented it and was it beneficial in terms of supporting the consumers recovery efforts?
Psychoeducation for medication adherence is not appropriate if the patient did not choose for this to be essential for their recovery. If you have not ever done a recovery plan with a consumer yet then I would advise you begin practicing. If you need support look to the recovery support team here /your preceptors or staff who you observe doing these as the literature advises.
Identify: goes beyond name, to include location [ I shouldn't see RBWI-I or ward names]
Have an Introduction and Conclusion and paragraphing that makes the assignment easy to read, connected but flowing.
This case study will explore and critically analyse the assessment and management of a consumer in a clinical environment and will incorporate targeted consumer led interventions as part of a planned recovery-orientated focus supported by contemporary evidence. For the purpose of maintaining confidentially the name of the consumer has been changed to protect their identity.
This assignment has presented the nurse's reflection as a critical analysis of the development of the therapeutic alliance and the nurse's role in supporting efforts for three of their recovery goals, identified whilst recovery planning. You would summarise the main challenges and the nurse's actual supportive interventions
• Avoid acronyms unless they are very well known and provided in full when first used in the assignment.
Pay attention to how much marks are allocated to specific sections in the criteria, larger marks allocation should reflect more content allocation in your assignment.
Best of luck everyone
