Lecture Overview

Sue de Muelenaere reminds us of the importance of the holistic approach to patient care. Alarms beeping, strange equipment and lack of privacy - a hospital can evoke fear and anxiety in our patients. As nurses, it is critical that we provide care for a patient's psychological health.

A good guide to how and why some patients react as they do and how we as nurses can try to alleviate their fears or worries.

I enjoyed the content which was done well by the presenter. NO matter how many years one can have practiced nursing, it is still relevant especially when knowledge-packed together as listed. I will be able to pass on valuable information to student nurses.
