Holistic Approach to Nursing
This course aims to offer an introductory exploration of holistic nursing. Holistic nursing encompasses a comprehensive approach to patient care, emphasizing the importance of addressing not only the patient's immediate health issues but their overall well-being. Nurses, by adopting this holistic perspective, can significantly enhance patient outcomes. This entails an evaluation of various aspects, including social determinants of health, past medical history, and family background. Moreover, nurses play a pivotal role in empowering patients to take charge of their own self-care. It is imperative for nurses to prioritize self-care as well, as their well-being directly impacts their ability to provide optimal care to others.
