Individualizing Care in Your Practice or Organization
This discussion will focus on professional discourse about your personal experiences and observations of individualizing care for patients in your practice and care settings.
For this discussion, please address the following, being sure to adhere to the guidelines in the FEM:
Describe an experience you have had working to individualize care for a patient (or describe a time in your care setting that you observed care being individualized for a patient).
Briefly explain the patient’s considerations that were addressed as the care was becoming individualized.
How were the patient’s other health concerns taken into account?
How were the patient’s culture and beliefs taken into account?
How were the patient’s economic and daily environmental realities taken into account?
What ethical considerations, if any, were there for working with this individual patient?
Reflect on things you would have suggested doing differently, if you could revisit that patient’s case.
Note: Remember to not disclose any confidential patient or organizational information in your post. Also, citing outside sources is optional for this discussion.
