The lives of individuals are at stake in different parts of the world due to the various heart-related diseases. Of late, heart failure is one of the risks affecting the lives of individuals in most parts of the world. The condition is such a threat since it decreases the quality of life and increases expenses due to the many hospital readmissions. Adults suffer more from the illness compared to the infants, and that is evident from some hospital diagnosis. Three significant challenges that affect individuals suffering from heart disease includes financial strains, emotional stress as well as physical problems. The usage of the self-care management model proves useful in combatting aspects related to the disease and prolonging the lives of patients in most parts of the world.
With the help of multidisciplinary disease management programs, it is feasible to reduce the number of aspects related to the disease with some of them being non-adherence to medication. Patients in most instance fail to take their medication and the right time and that presents some risks to their health. The ability to incorporate the best diet is also significant since it decreases re-hospitalization, which stands out as the main threat to financial muscles (Holden, Schubert & Mickelson, 2015). Patients with minimum readmissions outline the quality of life they experience in most instances. With the help of the Medicare team, the focus is on the decrease in the re-hospitalization with the aim of bringing positive changes in the healthcare industry.
The exploration of Issel’s model regarding the explanation of the problems is useful during the research process. Moreover, such a model plays a significant role in building the problem statement. Effective implementation of the model presents a positive impact on the lives of adults aged 17 years and above since they are in a position to learn and master all the treatment requirements. The connection that exists between the readmissions and the physiological equilibrium is the leading cause of the vulnerability that the body presents to various co-morbidities. As a consequence, offering the right care model proves imperative in fostering good health as a well as a reduction in the cost of treatment in most parts of the world.
Heart disease such as heart failure can develop at a progressive rate. The model hence focuses on the best approaches to delay the particular development. Moreover, there is the reduction of the symptoms, and that limits the rate of readmission as well as the number of deaths recorded due to such a condition. The evidence-based practice also presents some recommendations, and the ability to implement such requirements contribute to a successful disease management programs. In the modern society, it stands out that patients lack the necessary education on critical matters affecting their lives and that brings the need for training to impact on such experiences. The focus of such practice should be on the medication as well as personal care to control the progress of the disease.
Mr Smith is 70 years old and has been suffering from chronic heart failure for three years now. Some symptoms that Mr Smith presents include anaemia, severe depression as well as Vitamin B12 deficiency. The swelling evident on the feet and ankles is also a noticeable symptom that makes it hard for Smith to live a productive life since his movements are greatly inconvenienced. With the help of the wife and five children, Mr Smith can get the home-based assistance of healthcare related services. Ideally, most patients are no able to get such services, which further complicates their lives. As articulated earlier, evidence-based model and home-based models are the main approaches that can drastically reduce the level of heart disease and improve on the lives of individuals in various parts of the world (Brännström & Boman, 2014).
The fact that heart disease is progressive, Mr Smith finds it imperative to have regular exercise and improve his diet. These are some of the best measures that make it possible to live a healthy life and minimize the symptoms associated with the condition. Research from Oxford University indicates that coronary artery disease is the primary cause of heart disease and over 70 percent of the population suffers from heart disease due to such in the contemporary society (Albert et al., 2015). Heart disease can affect either side of the heart, and the symptoms are the same on most occasions. In most cases, men over the age of 65 years are likely to suffer from heart disease with Southern Asia presenting a high prevalence rate. The social impact of heart disease is the epicentre in most discussions since it makes it hard for individuals to undertake their duties in the best way possible. The main risk associated with the psychological as well as the social aspect of individuals is depression.
In specific instances, a patient is likely to present healing, and that brings the need of the complementary therapies on control some aspects during the process. There is a vast difference between complimentary treatment and evidence-based approach since the former banks on historical as well as a cultural basis for offering treatment. The former is known to rely on the scientific method in providing assistance related to heart disease. According to studies conducted by Morton, Fontaine, Hudak and Gallo (2017), the ability to control depression and anxiety plays a significant role in fostering good health among patients in most occasions. The extensive use of complementary therapy in the modern society relates to the level of importance associated with the healthcare models. The integration of such treatments into nursing, as well as midwifery, offers an outstanding benefit on the lives of individuals in most occasions. Individual health care premises might undertake various therapies before putting into consideration the client’s interest. That should never be the case since it is imperative to understand what works best for the client in any given instance.
Nursing can be such an uphill task once there is limited knowledge as well as equipment to address the concern of clients. The most important approach to consider when delivering health care service should be on the approachability as well as the willingness of the patient to receive treatment on most occasions. That should also include the ability of the patient to get necessary advice from the practitioners and use such information in impacting positively into their lives.
The best model to apply is the Prochaska and DiClemente’s model that addresses all matters related to change within the organization. Health promotion has taken a different paradigm in the contemporary society regarding emphasis as well as definition. Previously, the focus was on inclusion (Gerber et al., 2015). It was evident that patient must obey all the instructions given during those times. In the contemporary society, the focus is on bringing an understanding as well as an agreement. Reaching such an agreement must involve the patient as well as the healthcare professional. The approach makes the theory of patient empowerment as well as education an essential step in promoting compliance. The focus remains of patients since they control some aspects related to their lives. The most important step should be on the best elements that will empower patients and make them stand out regarding their personal lives. Every healthcare professional should exist as a source of knowledge and bring a positive influence on the lives of individuals.
The use of complementary therapy proves useful in helping a client in the pre-contemplation phase of TTM. Ideally, it needs the help of the client and the doctor to have a positive impact on behaviour. Preferably, the leading cause of deaths associated with heart disease includes poor diet as well as inappropriate lifestyle. The best food and exercise will indeed offer the best functionality of the heart. With the help of practice, it is possible to lose weight and have a positive impact on an individual’s life. I recommend a written diet plan, and it is imperative to continue using salts rather than salts substitutes. The primary justification is the side effects that can arise due to the use of such alternatives. The body is over-reactive, and there is need to use elements that make it possible to improve the quality of life. Contrary to what most people believe, heart disease doesn’t claim the lives of individuals that much. It is evident that factors associated with the disease are deadly and increases the number of deaths in different parts of the world.
