This blends well with the cultivation of sensitivity to oneself and others. Cultivation of sensitivity is very important in the sense that one is not only aware of their feeling but those of others as well (McEwen & Wills, 2011). This ensures that caregiver can build a help trust relationship which is vital in the provision of nursing care. This kind of feeling ensures that there is the existence of existential and phonological forces that help in the nursing process. Giving, the patients an environment that is both supportive, containing both cultural and spiritual aspects that will help the patient feel comfortable and appreciated.
According to Jean Watson nursing’s main concern is the promotion of health, as well as prevention of illness, caring for the sick and restoring health. This makes the tenet of her theory and promotion of interpersonal relationship (McEwen & Wills, 2011). Another reason I agree with the sentiments of JR is the fact that holistic was vastly discussed in the unit and I relate to it since it is one of the best developments in the field of nursing. Holistic nursing provides the patient, not just the basic task-oriented nursing care but also very patient-oriented care (Fawcett, 2004). This ensures a combination of specialized knowledge and skills in patient care. Holistic nursing brings the fact nursing care is a team-based effort. This I particularly agree with since the patient feels well attended and cared for.
In the holistic approach, the nurse takes up different roles which included being a teacher imparting knowledge to the patient in reference to their needs (Fawcett, 2004). The nurse provides particular information that will help in understanding particular needs. The nurse also acts as a counselor in the holistic approach. Providing and encouraging the patients to make changes if need be.
