Transcript: Pre morbid- Hip strength weakness from surgery Reduced sensation under 1st MTSP previous fractures Leg length discrepancy Tightness in Gastrocnemius Unable to obtain plantigrade bilaterally Reduced exercise tolerance Following the stroke - UL/LL R sided weakness after the stroke Reduced proprioception ?Stroke fatigue Assessing Doris's walking indoors with a kitchen trolley: Forward trunk flexion A wide base of support Reduced foot clearance Reduced hip flexion Trendelemburg Reduced step length Effortful/Antalgic gait pattern She was easily fatigued Reduced confidence It was also unclear which exercises she was doing as she wasnt able to recall her exercises and my thoughts were ?lack of motivation to do HEP. Revisited current goal - mobilising 100m with a walking stick. Rechecked power - R 4/5 hip flexion, knee extension, dorsiflexion but easily fatigueable unable to hold - needed to build endurance. Hypothesis ?lack of Motivation to do HEP ?Too many exercises ?Anxiety ?Unable to make relation between exercises and her goal of walking Burst of 4/7 HEP technique/diary to record. Second week given a blank diary and told to continue HEP independently while we practice gait. Doris's husband also set up stationary exercise bicycle which Doris wanted to use. I encouraged this as it was something she enjoyed and could still help with increasing her ROM and strength through increasing resistance. Now that: Strength - HEP Motivation - Burst/Diary, positive reinforcement and revisited goals. Heel strike - Foot Up Encouraged to reduce WB - hitting inside of the trolley Calf tightness - soft tissue manipulation/stretches Fatigue/exercise tolerance - initially ?OT involvement but believed to be exercise tolerance as improved daily - advised on pacing. New goal/OCM - steps taken across living room approx 2m. No aid - 18 steps required Kitchen trolley - 14 steps required Kitchen trolley and Foot Up - 11 steps required (quality improved) Noticed Doris used her L arm to fix upper body - ?walking stick Repetition - practiced stepping by the kitchen work top and working on hip dropping and lifting. Discussed trialing a quad stick with clinical educator. Called Doris to book an appointment and was told that she had self progressed to try using a walking stick to family members house. New goal to be able to walk a short distance outdoors from the car to the front of the house for Christmas dinner. OCM Steps taken Trialed quad stick + foot up - 11 steps (better quality) Continually encourage Doris to lift from hip into flexion rather than circumduct and to reduce wide base of support. Practiced by kitchen with quad stick- encouraged to walk along kitchen worktop to prevent circumduction. Doris was able to flex through her hip. Quality of gait had improved significantly and so had her confidence. Aim of next session will be to practice outdoor mobility. Gait = Multifactorial Hypothesis testing clinical reasoning How I could influence each of these factors Next goal - is to be able to improve her outdoor mobility. Reflection on Doris's pathway Orthopaedic review Appropriate aid from the beginning Set back with 2 x falls therefore reduced carry over The amount of exercises could cause confusion/overload of information Neuroplasticity - 1000 steps per day/fatigue Will her walking ever be "normal" Range of UL/LL exercises - bed, seated and standing. Practiced walking with assistance, but she had weakness in her hips and it was effortful. Still fatiguing quite quickly after mental/physical exertion. She still had reduced movement in her right upper limb and could not grasp objects. Conclusion Knarr, Brian A et al.

Transcript: Example Method of Evaluation: Donabedian's Structure Process Outcome Model Emphasis placed on provider to interact with patient and process to achieve improved outcomes Examining Brett's thoughts and feelings about health (i.e., current health status, family diabetic history) and dependency (i.e., cigarette smoking) can open a dialogue. Establishing dialogue is crucial in allowing the patient to conceptualize what health means to them and how current health and lifestyle choices influence that. Stimuli, whether internal or external, will be examined and techniques to reduce stimuli, modify response, or manage stress will be explored. Milio's Framework of Prevention How Theory Relates to Brett Roy's Adaptation Model "Pattern of regulating and integrating into daily living a therapeutic regimen for treatment of illness and its sequelae that is unsatisfactory for meeting specific health goals" (Ralph & Taylor, 2011, p. 314). How Theory Impacts Practice The patient will acknowledge need for continued health management through regular examinations. The patient will verbalize understanding of Diabetes Mellitus and associated maintenance and treatment options. The patient will identify risks associate with smoking and participate in smoking cessation. The patient will participate in treatment discussion and planning. Saint Luke's College of Health Sciences ". . . complicated and dynamic operating systems with multiple processes and teams” and with many members of conflicting goals and regulations “it is an interdisciplinary process involving adaptation, coordination, collaboration, and cooperation on all levels of the system” (Utley et al., 2018, p. 262). Stresses the interchangeability between factors which contribute to its structure, as well as the resiliency and flexibility to keep it sustainable (Utley et. al., 2018). The healthcare organization must be able to adapt to the changing needs of its clients by identifying areas of weakness and coordinating efforts to achieve resiliency. Villareal (2003) Study Patient Outcomes: Figure 4: Nursing Complex Adaptive System (Chaffee & McNeill, 2007) To provide effective care in an ever-changing field, the nurse must consider the varying influences (i.e., biopsychosocial factors) a patient has in their life. Utley, Henry and Smith (2018) define theory as "a description, explanation, or prediction of things or ideas of our world, a statement of the relationship between two or more concepts" (p.7). Allows nurses to generate perspective on how care is determined, provided, and advanced Utley et al. (2018) refers to theories as providing frameworks to ". . . understand our patients and the situations that affect them" (p.19) Roy's Adaptation Model 45 year old African-American male Denies having an exam for the last 10 years Positive family history for Diabetes Smokes 2 packs of cigarettes per day Ineffective Self-Health Management Relevant Theories The organization must identify his reasoning for lack of consistent healthcare, what places him at risk for readmission, what resources does he currently have, and what resources does he need prior to discharging. “CASs must recognize their unpredictable complexity and develop processes to address uncertainty and enhance productivity to achieve goals” (Utley et al., 2018, p. 262). Utley et al. (2018) identify that health is a complex concept consisting of multiple areas of society, culture, and family which impact a person’s ability to achieve optimal health Coordination of resources is key! References How Theory Relates to Brett Brett What are concepts?

Complex Adaptive Systems and Brett Nursing Care Plan: Summary Roy's Adaptation Model Continued Evaluation A key motivator in role development focus on individual discovering meaning Considers social structure and personal experience to establish role and interpersonal structure Figure 2: Greatest Nursing Theories (Greatest Nursing Theories, n.d.) Theory in practice Considers the patient as a bio-psycho-social being which interacts with the environment in four varying modes of adaptation. The four modes identified by Utley et al. (2018) are the following: 1. Physiologic mode – concerned with the basic needs of the individual 2. Self-concept mode – concerned with the identity and integrity of the self 3. Role function mode – concerned with social integrity 4. Interdependence mode – concerned with the need to feel secure Theory in practice "Concepts are words we use to label or identify people, objects, events, situations, experiences, beliefs and values" (Utley et al., 2018, p.7).

It leaves the pelvis and entres the gluteal region via greater sciatic foramen. The nerve leaves the greater sciatic foramen inferior to the piriformis muscle, then decends in the place between the superficil and deep groups of gluteal muscles. Continues down the postierior thigh, giving rise to the motor branches for the hamstring muscles. When the sciatic nerve reaches the apex of the popliteal fossa, it terminates by spliting into tibial and common fibular nerves.

However, some intraspinal or extraspinal pathologic processes along the sciatic nerve may also cause sciatica. Lumbar spine imaging reveals the causes of intraspinal non-discogenic sciatica (NDS), Extraspinal sciatica is often misdiagnosed because routine diagnostic tests focus on the lumbar spine. A careful patient history and clinical examination are important in identifying extraspinal sciatica.

Transcript: Additional Solutions and Treatments Circumstances and Discovery Patient Outcome Examination & Detection Unfortunately, this woman was a high risk candidate for developing this cancer and did absolutely nothing to obtain it. She was one of the "unlucky ones" as the doctor put it. Luckily, her cancer was at its early stages and hadn't metastasized throughout her body to other parts of her body. The women underwent through the lymph node biopsy as well as the removal of part of her lower right jaw to stop the cancer from spreading. A metal beam was placed to replace that portion of her jaw that had been removed. Weeks after surgery, tests came for reevaluation of her diagnosis. All the cancer had been removed completely and had not spread. Causes for Diagnosis Solutions and Treatment Upon examining all the tests and results the doctor concluded that the women in fact had Lymphoma or most commonly known as Lymph Node Cancer around her upper lymph nodes located around her neck and bottom jaw area. Examination which determined the diagnosis includes: Medical History: When and how her swollen lymph nodes developed and if she has any other signs or symptoms. Physical exam: Check lymph nodes near the surface of your skin for size, tenderness, warmth and texture. Blood tests: Complete blood count (CBC), which helps evaluate your overall health and detect a range of disorders, including infections and leukemia. Imaging studies: Chest X-ray or computerized tomography (CT) scan of the affected area may help determine potential sources of infection or find tumors. Biopsy: remove a sample from a lymph node for microscopic examination. Diagnosis Patient Case Study Yael Viniegra A 38 year old Caucasian women comes into the doctors office complaining about congestion and inflammation around her neck and shoulder area. She also complains about chest pain, pressure, shortness of breathe, night sweats and fever. "I feel like I cant breathe sometimes and have to stop to catch my breathe." This could most likely just be allergies causing these symptoms in normal cases. There is a high chance that the cancer might come back after the removal of the cancerous lymph nodes. The removal of lymph nodes can also lead to lack of drainage of lymph fluid which is very vital for fighting of bacteria, viruses and toxins. This backup of lymph fluid is known as Lymphedema and it can be a life-long problem. Risks of Biopsy Treatment A biopsy of her cancerous lymph nodes was made to stop it from spreading. This means surgeons removed the lymph nodes that were cancerous to try and control it. Upon removing them they also removed a section of her jaw because once cancer reaches bone it spread all over the body. Chemotherapy and radiation are other treatments that can be given to try and remove lymph node cancer.
