Step 1: Read the following case study:
A nurse has an order to complete a procedure on a patient. After reading the procedure, the nurse notices that it is not best practice and it has not been updated for 6 years. The nurse takes this issue to the nurse leader (charge nurse) and the nurse manager (unit manager).
Step 2: Your first post is based on the first letter of your last name. For example, if your last name is Smith, you would answer the nurse manager question. Please review the differences in these roles before posting (Nurse leader vs. Nurse Manager)
Assigned Role= Nurse leader
What would you do as a nurse leader if your policy or procedure conflicts with the most recent evidence? Describe your response to this nurse.
Why is it important to update policies and procedures? What are the risks if they are outdated?
What is your role as a nurse leader in assuring policies or procedures are up to date?
Your discussion post should look like:
Paragraph one: What would you do as a nurse leader or nurse manager (depending on your last name) if your policy or procedure conflicts with the most recent evidence? Describe your response to this nurse.
Paragraph two: Why is it important to update policies and procedures? What are the risks if they are outdated?
Paragraph three: What is your role as a nurse leader or nurse manager (depending on your last name) in assuring policies or procedures are up to date?
Resources: Where did you find your data?
Froebel encouraged symbolic and imaginative play (such as a child pretending that some stones in a pan are food and he is making dinner). He thought that as the children pretend and imagine things, they show their highest levels of learning. He also developed a set of learning materials, which he called ‘The Gifts’ (these went on to influence the work of Maria Montessori) and activities, which he called his ‘Occupations.’ ‘ A gift was an object provided for a child to play with, such as a sphere, cube, or cylinder, which helped the child to understand and internalise the concepts of shape, dimension, size and their relationships. The occupations were items such as paints and clay, which the children could use to make what they wished; through the occupations children externalised the concepts existing within their creative minds.’ (www.geocites.com) Froebel allowed children to use the Gifts and Occupations as they wished, without having to do set tasks of the kind that adults usually asked of them. Thus he introduced what is now called Free-flow play. Fredrich Froebel also invented finger rhymes and songs to help children learn, such as one, two, three, four, five, once I caught a fish alive. Maria Montessori (1870-1952) Maria Montessori was born in Italy in 1870 and began her work as a doctor in the poorest areas of Rome at the beginning of the 1900s. Montessori worked with children with learning difficulties and from this, and her experience as the head of a state institute for the education of such children, she formed her own ideas about early childhood education. Montessori came to the conclusion, that children pass through sensitive periods of development when they are particularly receptive to particular areas of learning (which is now supported by modern research). She also saw children as active learners. She did not believe in imaginative play as Froebel and Steiner did and she felt children would learn through structured play.>GET ANSWER
