Critical Thinking
Image of page 6
This activity allowed to research and learn about different types of communication that influence team effort within a given facility as well as communication with other organization to deliver quality and safe care for elderly population. It provided an opportunity to apply researched information and implement critical thinking by teaching nurses of Holy Cross Hospital. Examining the resources for disabled older adults helped us to discover the availability of help within the community. Since nurses are members of the community it was constructive to learn this information and to be able to share with our fellow nurses at Holy Cross Hospital. Purposeful Civic Learning and Reflection Being a student of the RN to BSN program and being able to present other nurses about health and social services to the elderly assisted us in realizing the importance of proper communication and availability of community resources, which in turn results in quality and care provision for the elderly and elderly with disabilities.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
