Approaches To Professional Nursing Practice (401007)

Assessment 1 – Essay including a personal reflection

Critical reflection and evidence-based practice positively transform health care settings.
Nurses utilise critical reflections to evaluate their values, ethics, and beliefs, enhancing their
nursing performance and their self-awareness. Evidence-based practice is synthesising
experiences and research literature to promote the coordination of safe and contemporary
care. Thus, critical reflection and evidence-based practice are pivotal to accentuate quality
nursing practice and ensure patient safety. This essay will examine nursing incident to
analyse the nurse’s role and illustrate the impact on the patient, family, and the nurse. A
nursing action plan is developed to improve practice, and a personal reflection on the incident
is provided.
Critical reflection and evidence-based practice are imperative to prevent substandard
incidents occurring in health care contexts. A nurse must comply with guidelines, standards,
and other legislation relevant to contexts of practice when making decisions (Nursing and
Midwifery Board of Australia [NMBA], 2016). Bibby (2015), reports the case of a 97-yearold
grandmother who died from a heart attack as a result of Nurse Lopez violating her duty of
care. He states Mrs. Lopez administered three different, crushed oral medications through an
intravenous route, without verifying with a second registered nurse.
