The Clinical Reasoning Cycle helps in the processing of the patient’s condition and providing an action plan accordingly to keep them healthy. Especially, being new in the nursing sector, the clinical reasoning cycle will help me in understanding the patient’s situation, get cues about the condition, evaluate them and provide a proper action plan to remove the problem with a healthy living.
It is also mandatory to follow-up with the patients at regular intervals, so they are not returned to their prior state of unhealthy practices. In this assignment, for recording the outcomes of the treatment, the Roper-Logan-Tiereney model of nursing shall be used by me being a new nurse. This will increase my knowledge and decrease the conflict among the other experienced nurses regarding me. I will address the situation of Maria Demetriou, who is a 74-years-old mother of Peter.
She suffers from osteoarthritis and she is dependent upon her walking stick though not recommended to do so. Being an elderly patient, she is suffering from the social, psychological and physiological issues regarding her health as she lost her husband to colon cancer. Staying with her son and his family, she does not want to be depended on them and hence depends on a stick to walk and inflammatory drugs to reduce her arthritis pain. This practice is addictive and must be combatted by a nurse to provide a healthy life to the patient following healthy practices. The case study is addressed below.
The First Four Steps of Clinical Reasoning
In the case study, the case of Mrs Maria is provided who is dependable on walking sticks and several pain medicines. As supported by Ang, Song, Lee and Lee (2021), the osteoarthritis can be managed by the Levett Jones Clinical Cycle Reasoning, which is of a great help to the new nurses. The nurses can for a correct questionnaire accordingly and provide treatment through the first four primary steps of clinical reasoning cycle.
The first four steps, which are considered by me in the nursing practice, are the understanding the patient’s situation, gathering cues of the situation, processing the information gathered and identifying the issues.
Understanding the Patient’s Situation-
When Maria was interrogated about her situation, she showed an immense pain in her knees, which can be controlled by inflammatory pain reliefs. As mentioned by Conaghan, Cook, Hamilton and Tak (2019), such options slow down the immune system and remove the feeling of pain from the pain. I asked her, why did she not stop its consumption according to the...
