Using a Model of Skill Acquisition Theory to Help Nurses Transition to Radiology Unit
1. I have been working in the radiology department for two years. My everyday goal in caring for cardiac patients is to stop any further heart or coronary disease damage. My daily duties involve inserting IVs for routine CT and MRI procedures. I educate patients about the procedure, its consequences, and what to anticipate during the test itself. Patients may occasionally find it difficult to understand the procedures due to language barriers. As a result, patients display anxiety and nervousness. Nursing plays an important role in quality management, developing actions to reduce risks and damages, documenting, and managing adverse events, as well as participating in educational processes with a focus on the quality of care and images from the standpoint of patient safety (Acauan et al., 2022).
2. Pender’s theory offers a compelling framework useful in all facets of nursing practice. The model helps nurses to progress from the beginning of their nursing carrier into becoming experts in their practice area (McEwen & Wills, 2022). It includes:
- Perceived benefits of action: a subjective evaluation of one’s ability to plan and carry out a health-promoting behavior. We must continue to care for patients, evaluate problems, educate, and learn new skills as nurses.
- Activity-related affect has a positive or negative impact on how effective one feels; therefore, the more positive a subjective experience, the more effective it is.
- Interpersonal influences: cognition about the actions, beliefs, or attitudes of others. Families, peers, and healthcare providers are the primary sources of interpersonal influences.
- Situational influences: any given situation or context of personal perception and cognition can help or hinder the behavior. We must also consider the deficiencies in the process and the opportunities for improvement.
3. The nurse needs to have experience prior to working in the radiology department. A competent nurse should be able to recognize, identify, and implement knowledge and critical thinking if a patient presents with a mild, medium, or severe allergic reaction during the procedure. The patient should be educated appropriately following the reaction.
4. Aim of Study: The nurses should continue to educate themselves, and the organization where they work should provide monthly and annual training that will lead to better health and safe patient care.
5. New nurses should always have the support of their colleagues as they encounter difficulties in the new unit. Nurses can incorporate Pender’s theory on the Health Promotion Model into practice and enhance patient care if they are prepared, knowledgeable, or skilled in managing patient care.
