Reflections Record your reflections below, including what you may have learned during the self- assessment. What are the key points you have identified from this activity?
A key point I learned from this assessment is a person’s ability to transfer oneself is the most important ODL to an individual’s independence. I incorrectly answered the question with, feeding oneself, as the most important ODL. I concluded to this answer from the obvious fact that food is crucial to the life of a human and feeding oneself would be the most important in a person’s daily life. I do acknowledge that the ability to transfer oneself independently is the most important in daily living, without this ability a person is dependent on others to assist them in living wrought the day.
A person may need assistance to eat their dinner, but maintaining their ability to go anywhere they want is the most important to keeping their independence. How will you incorporate what you have learned into your practice? As a pediatric nurse, I plan to develop a more detailed activity goal in my nursing plan of care for my patients that would benefit from exercise and activity, such as post-surgical patients. When discussing the goals for the shift with a patient, I typically instruct vague instructions, such as “Take a walk around the unit before you go to bed.
After this article, I have concluded that a more detailed goal has more benefits for the patient, physically and psychological. A patient’s care plan that incorporates a structured and detailed goal related to activity will optimize the health of the patient. Creating goals, and working towards these goal is an important life skill for anyone, especially children. It creates self confidence, work ethic, and builds character. For example, a hospitalized child that works towards a goal and succeeds develops valued personality traits versus an unproductive child that spends the entire day watching TV.
