Case study : Holistic Care Plan
NSG 4065 Week 1: Holistic Care Plan Case Study
In a holistic care philosophy, developing a plan that addresses the care of the Whole person is necessary to support health and healing. The holistic caring process utilizes the steps of assessment, identification of patterns/challenges/needs, defining specific outcomes, developing a therapeutic care plan, and implementation and evaluation of the plan. The following aspects of the person should be included in the plan: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual patterns and needs.
Make a case file of a family member, friend, or coworker. This cannot be a patient from your clinical practice. The file should include the following details: initials, age, past and present health status, present concerns, past and present coping patterns, healing beliefs, health values, social support, religious/spiritual practices, and his or her personal health goals.
Write a summary regarding all the aspects of the patient (physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual) on the basis of the information you get on compiling the responses.
Post a summary of your experience of this process in a 2-3 page Word document to the W1: Assignment 3 Dropbox.

Interview 3 people (family, friends, coworkers) according to the following guidelines:
Explain the selected core value to them in your own words.
Ask them if they think that this would be an important aspect for a nurse to incorporate into his or her practice and have them explain why or why not.
Also, review your text and lecture and explore the Web for descriptions of the terms healing and cure. Describe a case from your clinical practice in which there was no cure but there was healing. Describe the details of the healing experienced by the person interviewed.
