Health Instruction Packages: Humanistic Nursing--Nurse/Patient Relations.
Carpenter, Wanda L.; And Others
Text, illustrations, and exercises are utilized in this set of four learning modules to instruct nurses and nursing students in humanistic, non-technical aspects of patient care. The first module, "Introduction to Humanistic Nursing Practice Theory" by Wanda L. Carpenter, draws upon the theories of existentialism and phenomenology to define humanistic nursing, stressing interpersonal relations as well as task competency. The second module, "Grief and Mourning" by Anne Fishel, examines the symptoms of grief and mourning, details the characteristic stages of the grief process, and discusses appropriate intervention strategies for nurses to help patients cope with each of these stages. The third module, "Sexual Needs of the Aged Male Patient" by Sondra George, contrasts the sexual needs of the aged man and younger males, describes ways used by older male patients to express sexuality, and discusses appropriate reactions to these sexual behaviors. The fourth module, "Teaching the Stroke Patient to Dress Himself" by Peggy Gould, identifies clothing articles that stroke patients can most easily put on, reveals that stroke patients can most easily dress and undress while seated, and details steps to be followed by the patient in putting on a shirt or blouse. Each of the modules, which take from 15 to 60 minutes to complete, provides reinforcement exercises and concludes with a post-test and answer key. (JP)
