Difference between Nursing Implications/Interventions/Implementation
- 0Jul 10, '11 by mik11Hi! This may sound like an unintelligent question, but I'm going to go for it and ask anyways. I'm a first semester nursing student and I'm having trouble distinguising the difference between Nursing Implications, Nursing Interventions and Nursing Implementations. I'm using three different resources of drug guides and it seems that these terms are counter-exchanged as the 'action of the nurse to carryout certain tasks of the plan'. I am specifically looking for Nursing Interventions for drug cards that I'm suppose to make. Could someone please explain the difference in specifics? Thanks for your help in advance!
- 0Jul 11, '11 by queenjulieInterventions are something you actually do--an action you take. Say your patient is having trouble breathing. An intervention would be sit their bed up in high Fowler's position.
An implication is what possible effects the problem might have. So the implications of having trouble breathing are things like low O2 saturation, confusion, poor perfusion, etc.
I don't know what nursing implementations are--I'm halfway through school and have never heard that phrase!
