SPIRITUALITY AT THE END OF LIFE
Topic- SPIRITUALITY AT THE END OF LIFEThis week, you will dedicate your time to write a scholarly paper. An example of how critical writing in nursing can be done is attached (with minor APA 7th errors). The official APA7th example paper is also attached. It gives you detail of how to compose a paper with APA7th format.Details:1. By now, you have already chosen a home health or hospice topic to write.2. Conduct a literature search for information about the topic. The chosen articles must be peer-reviewed and current within 7 years unless they are considered as “classic” articles (rare, widely used, with no additional updates on the issue). The use of recent, peer-reviewed articles is a must for you to meet the course objective #7.3.Present key information about the topic as appropriate (e.g., definition, overview/background, significance, impact of the chosen topic). Tie your discussion to either home health, hospice, or palliative nursing (not the acute care nursing).4. Discuss the topic in relationship to home health or hospice nursing roles– Apply your findings to your nursing roles by proposing what you (nurses) can do in order to enhance the individual/family’s quality of life through nursing assessment, interventions (e.g., direct nursing care, health promotion, health education, and disease prevention), and evaluation.5. When you write, focus on one area of community-based nursing fields- home health OR hospice OR palliative care. If you really want to do both(e.g., home health and hospice), you must be able to discuss the differences of nursing roles. For example, if you choose a cultural competency topic and you want to discuss both home health AND hospice nsg roles, you will discuss the differences between home health nurse and hospice nurse roles. Home health nurse may focus on improving the patient/family health by considering their cultural belief related to religion, traditional belief, family tradition, etc. Hospice nurses may focus on helping the patient and family prepare for death, loss, and grief based on their cultural beliefs.
