NURS FPX 4900 Assessment 5: Intervention Presentation And Capstone Video Reflection
Assessment 5: Intervention Presentation and Capstone Video Reflection
I’m Emogene, and I’m extremely grateful to have you as my audience for my Capstone project. In this research proposal, I will tell you about evidence-based intervention for Ms. Jackson’s Cancer treatment. Ms. Jackson is a 40 years old lady with a family history of Cancer as her mother and also her sister went through the same Cancer disease and died. Now along with Cancer disease, she is also suffering from other diseases like blood pressure, anxiety, depression, and pulse fluctuations because of the worries about treatment costs and also Safety and the best quality treatment so she needs more support and attention. Cancer is considered to be a fatal disease if it is not diagnosed in the initial stages or if not to be given proper treatment (Stewart et al., 2019). Moreover, in this article, After spending three hours in (Villa Hospital) with Ms.Jackson in October 2022, I provide her with all the details about Cancer Stages like the initial or malignant stages, and also guide her that the safety precautions and routine checkups are necessary to get a healthy lifestyle (Hu et al., 2018). Cancer is a problem for Ms.Jackson because she has a family history of Cancer and she is worried about her treatment and survival.
Moreover, she also needs the latest technologies like Telehealth to get treated even while remaining at home. In addition to this one of the major aspect that every patient have to focus on is Self-management because if you want a healthy lifestyle and proper recovery then focus on your diet, stay motivated and be active. I also give her education about not worrying about the cost of treatment as insurance policies can reduce the overall cost of treatment (Adriaans et al., 2021).
Contribution of Intervention on Patient Satisfaction and Quality of Life
Various interventions are made to provide good quality of life to Cancer Patients. Patients need good quality treatment and to provide that a doctor or a nurse must understand the patient’s mental state Cancer patients were gone through much depression and anxiety along with good treatment they also need attention and moral support. World Health Organization (WHO) provide an estimated report in 2018 and according to that report approximately 18 million new patients are diagnosed with Cancer around the globe and in between them 9.6 million patients died due to Cancer (Marquart et al., 2018). The ratio of Cancer patients around the globe between the Advance stage (metastatic) or initial stage (curable) is 66%: 55%. More than 50% of patients took full treatment and recovered soon. It is estimated that of 100 patient’s around the globe, five to ten have a genetic history of Cancer but along with genetic history, most the old age people above 50 or 60 are diagnosed with Cancer so evidence also gives proof that another factor of Cancer is old age (Haslam & Prasad, 2019). Multiple strategies or interventions are designed to help Cancer patients with a speedy recovery.
NURS FPX 4900 Assessment 5: Intervention Presentation and Capstone Video Reflection
In my discussion, I already told you that Ms. Jackson is also going through multiple other diseases like high BP, pulse fluctuations, anxiety, depression, and stress, and to overcome these issues American Cancer Society (ACS) has made effective strategies for early detection of cancer and also about treatment and prevention of Cancer (Fontham et al., 2020). This society also focuses on self-care or self-management strategies because Patients with Cancer need moral support to stay encouraged and to get healthy lifestyles. Cancer is considered to be a disease in which patients go through trauma due to weight loss, hair fall, and other symptoms that affects their overall physical condition. I guide Ms. Jackson to eat healthily and to stay related mentally is a key factor that can improve her overall physical condition. (Kwekkeboom et al., 2020)
In our intervention, we focus on patient safety, patient satisfaction, and also on patient moral support. Patient safety programs must be supported to appropriately engage patients, enhance patient satisfaction, and listen to patients’ needs. Along with Patient Safety Strategies, I also provide moral support to Ms. Jackson because self-management is considered to be a vital aspect of getting good quality care. Moreover, I also told her about the latest technologies like Telehealth and Electronic Health Records (EHR) with which she can get medical attention from home as well (Lonergan et al., 2020). Furthermore, various Cancer awareness programs are established to aware people of the early detection of Cancer and also about how to overcome depression, anxiety during cancer treatment and also in these programs we provide knowledge to the patients about self-care like a healthy diet and precautions that can help them to recover fast. I as a nurse introduce all about that programs to Ms. Jackson. After receiving m all interventions, Ms. Jackson is looking quite satisfied and motivated, and just because of this risk of other diseases like BP, and Depression can decrease (Wu & Lee, 2019). NURS FPX 4900 Assessment 5: Intervention Presentation and Capstone Video Reflection. Moreover, Ms.Jackson can apply these interventions (Self-management, Safety, technologies, etc) by focusing on self-care (eating healthy, staying motivated, etc) and thinking positively, and keeping keep doctors or nurses updated via phone calls about her situation.
Evidence and Literature Review to Plan and Implement Capstone Project
Planning is quite difficult for us but the focus of our project is on the implementation of interventions for patients’ health. The basic concern of patient health is dependent on self-management, Digital health technologies, cost reduction, and safety. For that purpose, multiple studies and organizations have developed interventions and evidence like the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) provided guidelines regarding the early detection of Cancer and its treatment (Patel et al., 2020). Moreover, this society also gives knowledge about self-management as a basic concern to recover soon from Cancer. Most people after being diagnosed with Cancer lose hope and motivation and for that purpose, the basic concern of every organization is self-management to motivate patients and give them healthy lifestyles.
Moreover, the United States (US) Centers and Disease Control (CDC) also provides evidence that Cancer patients require Safety because due to Cancer treatment they can go through multiple infections like Dengue, COVID-19, or viruses, and to avoid their safety precautions are also necessary. (Jani et al., 2022) Furthermore, in 1996, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) developed the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to provide information to Cancer Patients that they do not have to worry about the Cost of treatment as multiple insurance policies can reduce the cost of treatment (Glied et al., 2020).
Furthermore, multiple Cancer awareness programs are initiated to provide knowledge about the stages of Cancer, precautions to take to avoid Cancer Disease, and the complete symptoms of Cancer. In fact in multiple countries nowadays campaigns and seminars are conducted to motivate Cancer patients like Pink Day, World Cancer Day, etc. These awareness programs provide knowledge that with treatment, patients also need motivation, a healthy diet, exercise, staying positive, and not taking depression to get a healthy lifestyle. So nurses had been provided with the knowledge that they had to provide complete details to the patients and encourage them to stay happy and healthy and avoid depression (Kasgri et al., 2022). With complete knowledge and moral support, Cancer patients can use those interventions to get a healthy lifestyle. Moreover, multiple seminars and Cancer awareness programs are also developed to give knowledge to the patients but sometimes people did not know about new technologies and self-management skills, especially poor people who do not use mobile phones or internet technologies and that is why patients can face challenges and avoid those challenges, patients need education related to self-awareness and healthcare technologies and safety. On the other hand education or instructions about treatment, and healthcare technologies is necessary because if accurate instruction is not given to the patients then it can be harmful to the patient’s survival.
Self-strength is quite important for a Cancer patient to recover soon and along with this Patients have to focus on technologies like Telehealth and Electronic Health Records to consult doctors in case of an emergency immediately without going to the hospital. Moreover, Patients with Cancer always go through high Blood Pressure (BP) or low BP, fluctuation in pulse all the time, and also asthma, etc. for that cases multiple technologies are there like pulse oximeters, sphygmomanometers, and Smartwatches that can help patients to check BP, Pulse all the time while staying at home. These technologies and government policies can help Cancer Patients to get immediate and affordable treatment (Ashfaq et al., 2022).

Health Care Technology Used in a Capstone Project to Improve Health Outcomes or Communication
Healthcare technologies have a basic concern in our Capstone project, especially for Cancer Patients. Cancer patients required attention and safety all the time because the treatment of Cancer can cause multiple infections and due to multiple factors they can come to hospitals regularly. In that case, multiple technologies are required by the nurses to keep updated about patients’ recent condition and in case of any emergency, medication can also be given to the patient immediately. As Doctors do not allow Cancer patients to take any of the medications whether any infection occurs like flu or temperature, etc. because the medication level for every patient is different and few medicines can increase the risk of other diseases among Cancer Patients. For that purpose, nurses use technologies to communicate with patients and provide immediate medications to patients in case of emergency (Raghavan et al., 2020). Self-management, safety, and healthcare technology can be used when patients are going through trauma or anxiety, Blood Pressure, etc, and to stay updated and resolve their issues, interventions can be used.
Moreover, Telehealth technologies like Phone calls, messages, webinars, Internet, etc. can also reduce the cost of Length of Stay in a hospital which is quite important for Cancer patients. During Covid 19, doctors and nurses used technologies like video conferencing, phone calls, Internet to communicate with the patients and to know about their recent condition and give them proper education immediately. In my project, Telehealth is considered to be quite impressive technology that can improve the overall health of patients. Moreover, in the next few years, multiple technologies like social media will help doctors and patients to connect and get appointments via calls without going to the hospitals (van Bussel et al., 2022).
Health Policies Influence Planning and Implementation of Capstone Project
This is a fact that healthcare technologies and self-management are key factors for patients to recover soon. Multiple Government policies and standards also play an important part in providing good quality care to patients. Multiple Government policies help people to recover soon from Cancer the National Cancer Act designed by the National Cancer Institute in 1971 provides knowledge to people about symptoms, prevention, and treatment of Cancer. (Schabath et al., 2019) Additionally, the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) offers proof that cancer patients need safety measures because cancer therapy increases their chance of getting multiple illnesses like dengue, COVID-19, or viruses. It is estimated by the Agency for Health Research and Quality that Cancer treatment is very Costly with almost $208.9 billion in 2020 and also increases on yearly basis. That cost is not affordable for everyone, especially poor people. (Nekhlyudov et al., 2019)
According to the evidence provided by National Cancer Institute (NCI), almost 42000$ is required for the complete medication of Cancer patients and that cost can be reduced by insurance policies discussed in the Affordable Care Act (ACA). According to this Act insurance policies are given to those people who are needy and cannot afford the treatment cost of cancer. Moreover, Affordable Care Act also describes Medicare or Medicaid to provide good quality treatment to patients at an affordable cost. Other different policies like Cancer Research institutions or support programs are designed to motivate people to stay healthy, stay positive and not take the stress. Another Nursing Practice Act (NPA) and Advance Nursing Care (ANC) is designed to give knowledge to nurses about how to treat patients and what precautions have to keep in mind (Abbott & Ustoyev, 2019). With the help of these Acts, nurses can provide better and good quality treatment to patients. In my project, the nurses’ role is quite effective in implementing the policies as nurses should know patients’ psychological minds and have to treat them accordingly. Moreover, nurses should also have to focus on Safety precautions while giving medication to patients (Litzelman, 2019).
Capstone Project Outcomes Matched with Initial Predictions
If the planned intervention is implemented then patients can experience improved treatment and high-quality care. Nurses’ positive behaviors towards patients make them feel at home and patients become more satisfied with the treatment. Effective communication is necessary between nurses and patients by using different technologies like phones or the Internet nurses can connect with the patients and patients and provide them with immediate medications in case of emergency (Hutchings et al., 2021). With the help of this patient safety level is increased and they become more active and energetic. Moreover with the help of technology patients’ cost of (Length of Stay) in the hospital will also reduce which would be beneficial for patient health. Moreover most patients especially Cancer patients are quite concerned about costly treatment but now patients can reduce that cost by taking insurance policies. Patients’ positive mindset is a key factor that can help them to recover soon so it is the duty of nurses to encourage them and give them knowledge about self-care or self-management because self-care is another key factor to remaining fit and healthy and on the other hand negative mindset can affect negatively on the physical health of patients (Allcott et al., 2019). In the case of Ms.Jackson after complete knowledge about the intervention, she is quite satisfied and she wants to use these interventions to get the best treatment and recover soon.
Willpower is a key attribute for patients to keep in mind to get Good Quality Treatment. Moreover providing knowledge to patients about government policies like the Affordable Care Act can help them to avoid depression and reduce the cost of treatment. Along with this different seminars and Cancer awareness Campaign help patients detect cancer in the initial stages and get rid of Cancer as soon as possible. After spending three hours with Ms. Jackson as a nurse I provide her with complete knowledge about self-management, technologies, self-care, Safety, Quality of Care, and about different government policies. After listening to everything she become quite satisfied with the treatment (Takvorian et al., 2020).
Professional Growth throughout a Project
As a part of this project, I learned a lot of skills, strategies, and ideas through which I can provide good quality care to patients as a nurse. In this project, the basic factors that I have learned are Self-management, technological advancement, patient safety, and many more. Cancer patients are always dealing between death and life as one single health factor can be dangerous for their lives. So in this article, I understand that safety precautions always remain to be the priority while dealing the patients. Along with safety, patient satisfaction is also necessary to enhance the quality of life. For every Cancer patient, this disease is just like a full depression about different aspects like treatment cost, safety measures, quality treatment, and motivational support. After doing this project I came to know that moral support is necessary for patients to avoid stress and Stay healthy. Moreover, along with moral support, the patient also needs technologies so that they can get treatment from home as well. (Char et al., 2020)
Moreover in this project, I have also learned about different leadership styles that are necessary to communicate with patients. Nurses should have to be friendly with patients to build trust to find out what patients are going through. Moreover, I also learned from her about communication and collaboration strategies that can help patients and nurses to understand each other. During this project, I also learned about what roles management is playing while treating patients and in case of any conflict, how management will overcome that conflict. This project helps me to understand the role of Nurses in improving patient health and about different nursing policies that are designed by the government to get knowledge about how to treat patients. Moreover, I also understand that Cancer is considered to be a fatal disease and is affecting multiple people around the globe. Most ladies are affected with Cancer at the early age of 30 but taking safety precautions like a healthy diet, avoiding alcohol or smoking, keeping yourself fresh by doing exercise, not eating junk food, and always staying happy and positive can slow down the risk of Cancer (Haldorai & Ramu, 2018). Moreover purposed interventions are quite helpful for me to understand healthcare issues and in case of an emergency how to overcome that issues. Moreover, Ms.Jackson assures that she will continuously use healthcare technology to stay in touch with the doctor and get medical treatment via phone calls. Moreover, she will also focus on a healthy diet and always stays motivated. After focusing on this intervention, if Ms.Jackson is founded to be recovering fastly then yes these interventions are affecting positively her otherwise these interventions are not appropriate for Ms.Jackson.
That’s all! With the help of this project, I came to know that the strategies or intervention that is designed is very much helpful for the patients. The patient can get the best quality treatment by following all the interventions. Along with the best treatment, patients need to stay healthy and positive all the time. Moreover, this assessment also provides us with details about what is the role of nurses in providing good quality of life to patients. I understand the impact of government policies on patients and nurses. Moreover, I also understand that the safest treatment technologies play a vital role. For professional growth in the healthcare industry, all these interventions are quite beneficial.
