family during acute care experience due May 29th

Group Discussion in D2L – Week 2
1. What are the barriers/challenges described in your readings that you also face in your environments as you attempt to provide family focused nursing? (e.g. family as client, family as context, family as barrier, family as caring process, family as resource)
2. Review the power point: “Family Nursing Background and Understandings.” Reflect on nursing practice that views family as the unit of care and nursing practice that views family as contextual to the individual patient. Do you believe that current nursing practice most often views family as the unit of care or family as a context to the situation? How do these two views differ?
3. Develop 5 questions focusing on one of Denham’s Core Processes. Interview a client in your workplace or within your community and describe their answers to your questions. Identify family routines and factors related to family health routines.
4. From the Khalili article, what were the most significant aspects of the illness transition for the family? What resources did the family need/want? What were the barriers and facilitators to obtaining the needed resources or supports? What may have changed in the care situation for the family if the family would have been viewed as the unit of care?
5. Using one of the family theories/frameworks described in the literature reflect on an illness experience in a family. (You can reflect on a family you have cared for in your nursing practice.) Consider how family structure, function, and process influenced the family health experience and outcomes. Analyze the experience from a family theory/framework perspective.
6. Use your reading on a One Question Question by Duhamel et al. (2009) to practice this questioning strategy with a family. Share your reflections and outcomes.

Group Discussion in D2L – Week 5
1. Svavarsdottir conducted an integrative review about Nordic families with children who are chronically ill. Three exemplar family cases were described. How can nurses be empathetically connected to these families? In Figure 1, Svavarsdottir (2006), shows how family daily activities, family relations and family health are interconnected. Describe how the family’s quality of life is affected if one or more of these 3 factors were hindered. What may be some suggestions to help these families boost their quality of life? Feel free to share any experiences in your career where you were empathetically connected to a family and helped boost their quality of life.
2. From your readings and your own experience, identify and discuss five needs of families during a crisis experience.
3. Develop a three generation pedigree to assess your personal family history information using the following website https://phgkb.cdc.gov/FHH/html/index.html The pedigree should represent three generations (student, parents, grandparents). Complete your family history, save it, and view your history grid and genogram. Share your insights into your family health with your group (you do not need to post the pedigree itself).

Discussion Board Guidelines
The Group Discussion provides you with an opportunity to participate in scholarly discussion about the readings and content for this course. Each student will be assigned to a Discussion Board (DB) Group. All students are expected to participate in each assigned group discussion. Your initial posting in your group discussion should be posted by 11:59pm CST on Wednesday to receive maximum points; this allows your group members enough time to read and respond to your initial post. Your response posting in your group discussion should be posted by 11:59pm CST Sunday to receive maximum points.
Initial Postings
Your posting should be no more than 2 pages (single spaced). Compose your post initially in a word document, then copy/paste it directly onto the discussion board. Please do not post word documents as attachments, as this requires other group members to download, read, and respond to material that cannot be seen directly on the discussion board. You are encouraged to share personal experiences and insights that you are comfortable sharing with the instructor and your peers.
For your initial post, the goal is to answer/respond to your assigned topics, applying what you have found in your assigned readings or other relevant sources. Clarify the content and major points in the readings, and help your peers understand the topic/issue you are posting about. You must cite your reference(s) below your posts, using APA format. At least one reference must be used to get a 10/10 on the discussion.
Responding to group members’ posts
Read and respond to your group members’ postings with meaningful, substantive comments to stimulate their thinking. Whenever possible, offer relevant examples, making connections between the posted topic and your own or others’ experiences. You must cite your reference(s) below your posts, using APA format. At least one reference must be used to get a 10/10 on the discussion.
Weekly discussions will end on Sunday at 11:59 pm CST. For grading purposes, only posts and responses that occur during the designated week for that module discussion will be graded.
Family and societal issues often raise strong opinions and controversy. We want to have a stimulating discussion, and group members may have differing views on many of the issues. Remember to keep a professional tone to the discussion, and to state your differing viewpoints respectfully. When you state your views, please back them up with facts and data related to family nursing. Science is the father of knowledge but opinion breeds ignorance. Hippocrates.
See the Group Discussion Grading Rubric below, to understand the criteria on which you will be assessing yourself. A total of 10 points are possible for one discussion board grade.

Weekly Discussion Post Example: Delaine Frasier
Posted May 14, 2022 12:01 AM
Students-
Delaine has given permission to share the Week 1 Discussion post with the class.  Please notice how she incorporated the professional literature (not just the textbooks)  into the post.  She also uploaded the articles referenced into the initial postas well.  In addition to providing evidence for the inital post, Delaine also  Did something with the content  . . . review the table for Question 4.  This answer not only shows the content of the question, but that Delaine was able to properly apply the content!  This is the level of  Thinking Family   that I am looking for and preparing you for graduate school. 
Respectfully,
Norma
1. Hello! My name is Delaine Frasier. I have some experience in adult home care as a CNA but all of my RN working experience is in pediatrics. I worked for one year at a pediatric hospital in Las Vegas before moving to Minnesota and have worked at the same hospital in the Twin Cities for 15 years. Currently I work on an observation/ short stay unit but have many years of experience in pediatric hematology/oncology, neurosurgery, epilepsy, behavioral health, and general med/surg. I am a wife and working mother to three young children. My children and husband are the things that matter most to me in this world. My goals are keeping them all happy and healthy. I am the youngest of three children. My brother and sister are much older than I am and were out of the house before I started elementary school. My parents, siblings and their families all live in Nevada, so it is difficult to see them often. I am looking forward to gaining more knowledge in family focused nursing care to be able to enhance my practice in pediatric nursing.
 2. Reflect on an illness experience in your own family or a family you know. Describe the struggles the family experienced with the illness. Consider the biological, social, psychological, or spiritual factors that influenced the management and coping of the family. Based on your experience pose a nursing approach that may have been helpful to the family. Use your readings to support your analysis and response.
When my daughter was about 18 months old she had to go to the emergency room for croup. It was scary for me even though I was a nurse. It was hard to keep her calm so that her stridor didn’t worsen. Luckily, I was able to leave my older child and my baby at home with my husband, however they were both sick too. It was a difficult and scary time even after the emergency room visit because her illness didn’t end there. My husband and I both had to take time off work to be home with our sick children. We share parenting and household responsibilities, and we were able to take turns tending to the kids and taking care of household chores, but it was difficult. Should a family nurse have assisted us during this time, they may have offered support to conduct our normal routines in order to help us feel a sense of normalcy during a stressful illness. According to Denham (2016) as cited by Kaakinen et al. (2018) nurses can help families experiencing an illness by assisting in establishing new routines in order to provide structure while still meeting the needs of the family.
 
3. What is your definition of family and family health?
My personal definition of family is our nuclear family. As I am reading and learning I believe I subscribe to the definition adopted by our textbook which defines family as a “dynamic, changing state of well-being, which includes biological, psychological, spiritual, sociological, and cultural factors of individual members and the whole family system” (Kaakinen et al., 2018, p. 5). This definition combines all aspects of life for individual members as well as for the whole family.
 
4. Describe your family health experience utilizing the 3 family health domains.
Table 1 describes my personal family’s health experience using definitions and examples from the text (Kaakinen et al., 2018).
