Essay Format 2000 words,
Describe a clinical practice issue. Critically analyse material (including relevant research articles) to support an argument for how an understanding of adult learning theory may assist the facilitation of practice development within a clinical context. How might the role of facilitation assist when approaching this issue?
Dear Writer ; I have chosen nursing documentation as a clinical issue, I personally found nurses reviewing other nurse s documentation during the handover process find it hard to identify care priorities to focus on. Managers and regulators reviewing nursing documentation find it difficult to determine the most important patient problems.
If documentation is a reflection of our care, does it show that nurses make a difference? I think we need to have an orientated documentation framework, a good training and implementation of plan which lead to practice development
