NURS 8114 Applying Interdisciplinary Theories to Nursing Practice

Simulation Theory week 3
COLLAPSE
                              Increasing effective communication with Simulation Theory

It is said that some learn from books and some learn by doing. In nursing, this remains true. While one can master the art of practice by the book, another needs the practical application to understand and apply. Effective communication continues to be an area for improvement. Simulation theory offers all an

opportunity to increase their knowledge about the practical application of effective communication in practice.

Effective communication remains one of the leading causes of medical errors and patient harm. According to Davis (n.d., as cited by Agarwal, 2009) communication is,

The transfer of information and understanding from one person to another person. It is a way of reaching others with facts, ideas, thoughts and values. It is a bridge of meaning among people so that they can share what they feel and know. By using this bridge a person can cross safely the river of misunderstanding that sometimes separates people. (p.1)

Learning new ways to communicate effectively will ultimately lead to better patient care. Simulation exercises are a tool that allows for practice and implementation of ways to communicate effectively.

Simulation theory, as described by Koukourikos et al. (2021), “is a technique for replacing or completing real-life experiences with guided experiences” (p. 15). Simulation theory implies that learning by doing remains an acceptable way of gaining knowledge in areas for practical application. For simulation theory to prevail as an advanced way of education, the applications of simulation theory must then be examined for efficiency concerning the practical clinical issue addressed (Josephsen, 2015). Once efficiency is established, a course of simulation related to the clinical problem may commence. According to the National League of Nursing, “Simulation is valued for its ability to provide realistic, context-rich experiential learning in a safe environment” (n.d.). Addressing effective communication in a guided environment that focuses on implementing open, honest, and corrective communication is a plan for increasing

effective communication. Josephsen (2015) found that “simulation design is based on multiple elements of input that require integration in which the learners must form or select an appropriate schema to guide problem solving and task completion” (p. 262). Which, when put into practice, increases understanding and decreases miscommunication. Allowing one to learn based on evidence in a guided simulation provides the learner with a firm foundation on which to apply to practice.

In conclusion, using the simulation theory concerning effective communication will decrease misunderstandings when utilized. Increased effective communication potentially will increase the satisfaction of the patient and the caregivers.

NURS 8114 Applying Interdisciplinary Theories to Nursing Practice

Using the same practice issue from the Week 2 Discussion and an interdisciplinary theory you will be assigned, you will research your assigned theory for applications in addressing your practice issue. Although your focus is exploring one theory in depth, as you engage with colleagues, consider other theories that also apply to your practice issue. Learning from colleagues is particularly important and encouraged with this Discussion.

To prepare:

Your Instructor will assign you an interdisciplinary theory from among the following:
Health Belief
Health Promotion
Change
Disease Causation
Transformational Leadership in Nursing and in Health Care
Patient-focused Care/Patient-centered Care
Problem-based Learning
Simulation (Jeffries/NLN)
Cultural Competence/Diversity
Review the Learning Resources, with particular attention to information on your assigned theory.
In addition, search the Walden Library for at least two scholarly articles published within the previous 5 years on your assigned theory. Identify examples and insight for applying this theory to your practice issue.
Consider how to explain your assigned theory and its applications to nursing practice and the specific issue you are addressing.

Note: Your initial post is due by Day 3. Contact your Instructor if you have not received your assigned theory on Day 1.

With these thoughts in mind …

By Day 3 of Week 3

Post a brief description of your assigned theory and your practice issue. Then, explain how you would apply your assigned theory to your practice issue and explain your reasoning. Be specific and provide examples. Cite your sources in your post.

Read a selection of your colleagues’ posts.

By Day 6 of Week 3

Respond to at least two colleagues on 2 different days. Choose colleagues who were assigned different theories than your own. Respond to their posts in one or more of the following ways:

Critique their application of theory to their practice issue and either explain why you support their thinking or recommend a different theory to consider, which may be the theory you were assigned. Explain your thinking.
Drawing on their explanation of their assigned theory, describe how this theory applies to your practice issue and explain your reasoning.
Compare and contrast their assigned theory with your own for application to practice issues. Support your reasoning.

Note: For this Discussion, you are required to complete your initial post before you will be able to view and respond to your colleagues’ postings. Begin by clicking on the “Post to Discussion Question” link and then select “Create Thread” to complete your initial post.

To prepare:

Reflect on the current draft of your philosophy of nursing practice and how, or in what ways, your philosophy is grounded in science.
Pay particular attention to the middle range theories you explore in the Week 2 Discussion and how these theories relate to the practice issue you identify.
Consider how to integrate applications of nursing middle range theories (from the Week 2 Discussion or others) into your philosophy statement to strengthen or deepen how nursing science informs or guides your philosophy of nursing practice.

The Assignment (3–5 pages)

Continue to develop your written philosophy of nursing practice by identifying at least two middle range nursing theories that apply to your nursing practice and explaining how each theory supports your philosophy. Include at least two scholarly resources for this element of your philosophy.

Reminder: The College of Nursing requires that all papers submitted include a title page, introduction, summary, and references. The Sample Paper provided at the Walden Writing Center provides an example of those required elements (available at https://academicguides.waldenu.edu/writingcenter/templates/general#s-lg-box-20293632). All papers submitted must use this formatting.

Next Week

To go to the next week:

Week 3

Week 3: Other Theories That Support Nursing Practice

The value of interdisciplinary learning is the beauty of drawing on knowledge and strategies from multiple fields. Imagine how ill prepared a nurse would be who only studied human systems. Patients are naturally more than a collection of systems. They have personalities and perspectives that are shaped by experiences, culture, and other factors that impact health and wellness. To know how to help the patient, understanding of these other factors, such as how cultural norms may influence disease prevention or the success of a treatment regimen, is crucial.

In the same way, the nursing middle range theories you examined in Week 2 are not the only theories that apply to and can guide nursing practice. Theories from other sciences, such as psychology and sociology, as well as from other fields, such as business, also have potential to support nursing practice.

This week you will explore a range of interdisciplinary theories through your Discussion with colleagues. You will also complete your module Assignment by considering how interdisciplinary theories may contribute to creating a philosophy of nursing practice that can be a beacon on your DNP journey.
