My role of specialization is Family Nurse Practitioner My role of specialization is Family Nurse Practitioner
I am a Family Nurse Practitioner, which is my area of expertise. A consistent need for additional methods of patient education when it comes to self-medication administration has been observed in my experience as a fertility nurse. Despite the fact that incorrect self-medicating is not usually the cause of treatment failure, it has created unwanted difficulties in the treatment process that have hampered progress. As a Nurse Practitioner, if I am given the opportunity to continue my fertility journey, I would like to research and assess patient teaching ways success rates, as well as maybe establish patient education and teaching methods for expert care and desired outcomes. I used the South University Online Library to conduct research into this area of interest. I chose "Nursing Program Guide" from the list of programs, and then used the library's search box to look for journal articles on patient education and instruction that had been published within the last five years. To begin with, I looked for fertility medication training, but regrettably, nothing came up save for an academic book on pharmacology. A further realization was the necessity of taking a broad look at all of the available patient teaching tools and determining which of these ways were the most effective on patients in light of existing evidence. My patient education/teaching research was aided by the discovery of three journal publications that provided a solid foundation for my work. The topic of eHealth education was the focus of a recent study published in the Clinical Journal of Oncology Nursing. The term "eHealth" refers to a wide range of technologies such as mobile health applications, video and audio conferencing, text messaging, and web-based on demand education. The findings of the study were from case studies in which eHealth approaches were employed, and they showed that patients and caregivers experienced reduced anxiety and more comprehension of their illness, care, and overall therapy (Doorenbos et al, 2020). Patient training approaches for self-injections were mentioned in an earlier edition of the Clinical Journal of Oncology Nursing, which I discovered while searching for an article on the subject. During this study, 50 breast cancer patients who were getting adjuvant or neoadjuvant treatment were examined, as well as the benefits of using simulation during teaching as opposed to not using simulation during teaching According to the findings of the study, there was no significant difference between using simulation in teaching and not using simulation in teaching. Researchers discovered that it was the whole "educational experience" that contributed to lower levels of anxiety and greater levels of accomplishment (Fischer-Cartlidge et al, 2016). The most recent piece I came across was in Medsurg Nursing, and it was focused on the nurse as a teacher. According to Flanders (2018), patient education should not be "cookie cutter," but rather should be tailored to the particular needs of the patient and caregiver in each situation. Things like education level, background, and accessibility should be taken into consideration by the nurse. According to Flanders (2018), nurses should use resources to constantly evolve in order to keep up with changes in the environment and knowledge. I am confident that this is a solid starting point for my research on patient teaching and education, which I will continue. More specific study on patient teaching on fertility meds and treatment plans appears to be a challenge, but I should be able to apply patient teaching methods that have been shown useful in other health-related fields to develop effective patient education for reproductive patients.
