PatientEducation in Alma’s case
Kermani(2016) notes that including a recipient in any intervention increasesthe rate of its success.Consequently, I would use an individualized approach, building myrelationship with Alma on trust and openness. Based on thisfoundation, I would proceed to educate her while ensuringprofessionalism.
Alikariand Zyga (2014) assert that to enhance compliance, nursing staffshould establish acordial relationship with patients and include them in thedecision-making process.As such, the most efficient way of using collaboration to ensurecompliance in Alma`s scenario requires engaging her in her healthcareplans. I would, therefore, ensure that I inform and seek her opinionbefore taking any intervention to give her the sense ofpower-sharing.
