Nursing Student Needs Help...please?

  1. HI everyone... I'm writing a paper on advocacy and I was wondering if I could get some of your opinions....
    "How do you, as an RN, teach a patient how to advocate for themselves?"
    Any stories or examples are greatly appreciated and will be of tremendous help!!!
    Thank you VERY much in advance!!!

    Hopefully she and the others here can give you some good answers

    Ask yourself: what does it take for you to help yourself? Resource person, internet info, financial motivation---whatever. Then guide your pt. to those things. Mostly people need hope and your caring attitude.
