1 Florence Nightingale’s environment-based theory is the most appropriate theory that I can align with my career. Environment Theory changed the face of nursing practice. This theory incorporates the surrounding environment of the patient in its nursing care plan. It plays a fundamental role as it uses the environment of the patient to help him recover and return to his usual environment (Smith & Parker, 2014). The reason the patient’s environment is important is because it can affect her health in a positive or negative way. Some environmental factors that affect health according to Nightingale’s theory are fresh air, clean water, food and proper nutrition, efficient drainage, cleanliness, and direct sunlight or light. If any of these factors are missing, it can delay the patient’s recovery (Wayne ,2014). Nightingale also emphasized providing a calm and warm environment for patients to recover. The theory also requires nurses to assess the patient’s dietary needs, document meal intake times, and assess how the patient’s diet affects health and recovery.
2 The topic that I will conduct the research on is about ischemic stroke. Reports show that, stroke is among the leading causes of deaths globally; around 795, 000 individuals, die of stroke in the United States alone, every year (Boehme et al., 2018). The individuals who are more predisposed to the condition are the elderly. The past few years have seen a record decrease in the number of mortalities from the disease. However, recent studies have shown that the numbers are rising again, due to unknown reasons. It has therefore been the motivation behind selecting this topic, to find out the reason behind the rising cases, including how to prevent, diagnose, and manage the condition, to reduce the mortality rates.
The most common type of stroke is ischemic stroke, which occurs due to the formation of a blood clot in the artery that supplies blood to the brain, causing a blockage. This blockage prevents the flow of blood and oxygen into brain, damaging the brain cells (Musuka et al., 2015). The common cause of the condition is the narrowing of the arteries, which is commonly caused by the gradual deposition of cholesterol on the artery walls (atherosclerosis). The effects that ischemic stroke has on a patient are life changing. It affects the vision, speech, the coordination and movement, and the general mental health of a patient.
