NURS 320B Southwest Minnesota State University Role of Family Caregivers Questions

0 comments

1)Explore the advantages, disadvantages, and costs of family caregiving on the caregiver, on the family member who requires care, and our health care systems.  Explore what individual nurses can do to promote improved quality of life for both the family member needing care and the family caregiver? 

2)  Discuss the ethical principles of autonomy and beneficence as they might arise in a long-term care setting.  How does autonomy and beneficence fit with quality of life? How might adhering to both principles at the same time create a dilemma? How might adhering to regulatory requirements in the LTC environment make adhering to both autonomy and beneficence a challenge? How might you approach the challenge?

3) multiple challenges impact long-term care at this time.  Explore at least three challenges.  Your exploration of each must include (at a minimum) factors that contribute to the challenge and ways that individual nurses can address the challenge.  Note: although it is very important that nurses are active politically, you will not earn credit for answers such as ‘secure more funding’; ‘increase the number of providers’; ‘get new management’; ‘pay staff more’; etc. for this discussion.  I am looking for things that nurses can do without lots of extra funding.
