im still in the midst of brainstorming my ideas. right now im working on writing a book for caregivers.Any nurse counsellors out there
?if you can share with me what are the specific job descriptions like?what are the essentials for one to qualify?
i realised my strengths are in listening to patient's concerns and i strongly feel that the psychosocial and emotional aspect are often left out as busy nurses in the ward are often chasing after time to complete the errands and not viewing the poor patients as people.(based on my experience)
when i was working in the ward, i sat down with patients to talk to them, as they opened up to me about their frustrations and worries. that would normally be when i was working on sunday afternoon shifts. i strongly feel that there is a need to update them what is going on since there is a big lacking in that. i believe too that a nurse has the duty to get the care giver to understand and be informed of the disease process and the importance of planning of care prior to discharge(in detail) and self care.
suggestions and comments are gladly welcome.
