Describe the benefits and challenges of implementing standardized nursing terminologies in nursing practice


Report Issue
Among the Resources in this module is the Rutherford (2008) article Standardized Nursing Language: What Does It Mean for Nursing Practice? In this article, the author recounts a visit to a local hospital to view the recent implementation of a new coding system.

During the visit, one of the nurses commented to her, “We document our care using standardized nursing languages but we don’t fully understand why we do” (Rutherford, 2008, para. 1).

How would you respond to a comment such as this one?

To Prepare:

· Review the concepts of informatics as presented in the Resources, particularly Rutherford, M. (2008) Standardized Nursing Language: What Does It Mean for Nursing Practice?

· Reflect on the role of a nurse leader as a knowledge worker.

· Consider how knowledge may be informed by data that is collected/accessed.

The Assignment:

In a 2- to 3-page paper, address the following:

· Explain how you would inform this nurse (and others) of the importance of standardized nursing terminologies.

· Describe the benefits and challenges of implementing standardized nursing terminologies in nursing practice. Be specific and provide examples.

· Be sure to support your paper with peer-reviewed research on standardized nursing terminologies that you consulted from the Library.

factors that might impact the clients pharmaceutical


This week, a 43-year-old white male presents at the office with a chief complaint of pain. He is assisted in his ambulation with a set of crutches. At the beginning of the clinical interview, the client reports that his family doctor sent him for psychiatric assessment because the doctor felt that the pain was “all in his head.” He further reports that his physician believes he is just making stuff up to get “narcotics to get high.”


The client reports that his pain began about 7 years ago when he sustained a fall at work. He states that he landed on his right hip. Over the years, he has had numerous diagnostic tests done (x-rays, CT scans, and MRIs). He reports that about 4 years ago, it was discovered that the cartilage surrounding his right hip joint was 75% torn (from the 3 o’clock to 12 o’clock position). He reports that none of the surgeons he saw would operate because they felt him too young for a total hip replacement and believed that the tissue would repair with the passage of time. Since then, he reported development of a strange constellation of symptoms including cooling of the extremity (measured by electromyogram). He also reports that he experiences severe cramping of the extremity. He reports that one of the neurologists diagnosed him with complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), also known as reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD). However, the neurologist referred him back to his family doctor for treatment of this condition. He reports that his family doctor said “there is no such thing as RSD, it comes from depression” and this was what prompted the referral to psychiatry. He reports that one specialist he saw a few years ago suggested that he use a wheelchair, to which the client states “I said ‘no,’ there is no need for a wheelchair, I can beat this!”

The client reports that he used to be a machinist where he made “pretty good money.” He was engaged to be married, but his fiancé got “sick and tired of putting up with me and my pain, she thought I was just turning into a junkie.”

He reports that he does get “down in the dumps” from time to time when he sees how his life has turned out, but emphatically denies depression. He states “you can’t let yourself get depressed… you can drive yourself crazy if you do. I’m not really sure what’s wrong with me, but I know I can beat it.”

During the client interview, the client states “oh! It’s happening, let me show you!” this prompts him to stand with the assistance of the corner of your desk, he pulls off his shoe and shows you his right leg. His leg is turning purple from the knee down, and his foot is clearly in a visible cramp as the toes are curled inward and his foot looks like it is folding in on itself. “It will last about a minute or two, then it will let up” he reports. Sure enough, after about two minutes, the color begins to return and the cramping in the foot/toes appears to be releasing. The client states “if there is anything you can do to help me with this pain, I would really appreciate it.” He does report that his family doctor has been giving him hydrocodone, but he states that he uses is “sparingly” because he does not like the side effects of feeling “sleepy” and constipation. He also reports that the medication makes him “loopy” and doesn’t really do anything for the pain.


The client is alert, oriented to person, place, time, and event. He is dressed appropriately for the weather and time of year. He makes good eye contact. Speech is clear, coherent, goal directed, and spontaneous. His self-reported mood is euthymic. Affect consistent to self-reported mood and content of conversation. He denies visual/auditory hallucinations. No overt delusional or paranoid thought processes appreciated. Judgment, insight, and reality contact are all intact. He denies suicidal/homicidal ideation, and is future oriented.

Diagnosis: Complex regional pain disorder (reflex sympathetic dystrophy)

PART I: Use the format below to develop a leadership SMART goal for YOURSELF (SMART GOAL FOR ME is “Working in Interprofessional Teams”) not your organization or department.
The goal needs to be related to ONE of the Institute of Medicine’s (IOM) quality initiative, which includes five core healthcare profession competencies.
However, your assignment focuses on only two (2) of the initiatives. These are Patient-Centered Care or Working in Interdisciplinary and/or Interprofessional Teams.
One of these competencies will serve as a framework for identification of your leadership goal.
NOTE: Your two choices are:
1. Patient-Centered Care
2. Working in Interdisciplinary and/or Interprofessional Teams (The section in highlighted YELLOW is the section that I want you as the Writer to develop and write about)
SMART Goal Format:
S—Specific (Who, besides YOU is involved in your goal, what is YOUR goal, and where will it take place?) – I work for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Medical Services Bureau as a Registered Nurse,
M—Measurable (How are YOU going to achieve the goal?)
A—Attainable (What resources and/or experts are available to assist YOU with attaining your goal?)
R—Realistic (Is YOUR goal something that is realistically obtainable by YOU in YOUR professional practice? Explain.) – I work for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Medical Services Bureau as a Registered Nurse, and I currently work with several professionals of different professions and/or disciplines; i.e., Certified Nursing Assistants, Respiratory Therapist, Dentist, Dental Assistants, Radiologist, Phlebotomist, etc. With each health care professional having different scope of practice, skill sets, knowledge, attitudes, beliefs, values, and cultures.
T—Time bound (What specific dates or weeks will YOU accomplish each task related to YOUR leadership goal?) – For the sake of this paper we shall set the date for Sunday May 22, 2016.
Again, this goal is about YOUR (ME) leadership development…not a SMART goal for your department or the organization for which you work.

PART II: Decision making, change and strategic planning are all important in today’s healthcare settings. (Finkelman, Anita. (2011). Leadership and Management for Nurses, 2nd Edition, Chapter 3, Pages 62 – 81)

What forms of gender discrimination did Laura experience?

Answer these essay questions:

Essay #1: Give your reasons to your answer to this question: “Can unethical behavior occur for a leader who has proper values and intentions?” Why or why not?

Essay #2: Describe the GLOBE project and tell why it is important.

Essay #3: Case Study: Madison, Jones, and Conklin

After graduating from a prestigious business school, Laura Kravitz accepted a job at Madison, Jones, and Conklin, a medium‐sized firm that did accounting and consulting projects for corporate clients. After a series of successful assignments working as a member of a project team, Laura was promoted to a team manager position with broader responsibilities. Laura felt confident about her qualifications. The other team managers seemed to respect her, and clients were happy with the projects she managed. With this record of success, Laura hoped to eventually become a partner in the company. However, as the only woman manager in a male‐dominated company, she knew that there would be some obstacles to overcome.

Laura felt that some of the senior managers were very conservative and did not accept her as an equal. In the quarterly planning meetings, these managers were often inattentive when she spoke and seemed unreceptive to her suggestions for improvements. Several times she proposed an idea that was ignored, and that same idea was later suggested by someone else who received the credit for it.

Laura did not have a mentor in the company to tell people about her skills and help to advance her career. Moreover, she did not feel accepted into the informal network of relationships that provided opportunities to interact with senior managers. She did not like to play golf and was not a member of the exclusive golf club to which many of the male managers belonged. She was not invited to most of the social activities hosted by senior managers for friends and select members of the company.

Laura also felt that the assignment of projects was biased. The high‐profile projects were always given to the male managers. When Laura asked her boss for more challenging projects, she was told that the older clients usually preferred to deal with men. Because she was not given the more profitable accounts, her performance numbers did not look as good as the numbers for some of the male managers. Two male managers who had joined the company around the same time she was hired were promoted ahead of her.

Frustrated by the apparent “glass ceiling” at the company, Laura asked to meet with the president to talk about her career. The president was surprised to hear that Laura was unhappy about her advancement in the company. He assured her that she was a valuable employee and should be patient about a promotion. However, after another year with little improvement in how she was treated, Laura resigned from the company. With two friends from graduate school who also felt unappreciated, she formed a new company and served as the chief executive officer. In a relatively short time, this company became highly successful.

  1. What forms of gender discrimination did Laura experience?
  2. What could Laura have done to overcome the obstacles she encountered?
  3. What could the president have done to create equal opportunity in this company?

Essay #4:  Using the Internet, survey current research comparing male and female leaders, summarize the major trends.
