Professional Presence and Influence: An Evaluation of Your Work
A1. Different ways of healing and how they vary
The western and eastern ways of thinking about health and mending have been chosen for this talk. Most of the current health systems we have today are based on Western medicine. This model looks at health from a biological point of view (Rakel, 2017). The four body fluids—blood, black bile, yellow bile, and phlegm—were the first thing that the western model of health thought about when it came to health. In a similar way, many of the modern practices of the western model of health are based on these old ideas. This includes a physical examination of the body and clinical signs of diseases, the use of scientific, evidence-based, and clinically proven treatments to determine health, and the promotion and protection of health as a human right.
On the other hand, eastern medicine is based on the idea that a person should be treated as a whole, not just for the signs they are showing (Rakel, 2017). Chinese medicine and Ayurveda are the two most popular types of eastern medicine. Chinese medicine thinks that sickness is caused by an imbalance of the energy that flows through the body’s meridians. Ayurveda is an Indian practice that says sickness is caused by an imbalance in the energy of the three elements: fire, water, and air. In both cases, herbal medicine, food, massage, and meditation are used to bring the body back into balance (Patwardhan, Mutalik, & Tillu, 2015).
A2. The Eastern approach to health and healing vs. how I do my job
The way I think and feel about health and healing fits with the eastern model. I am very sure that a person needs to be treated as a whole, especially mentally, for the best health result. I think that our thoughts are what make us live the way we do, and that shows in our health. So, eastern medicine takes into account not only a person’s physical health but also their mental health. In my professional work, I try to look at health issues from a mental health point of view.
A3. How my work life affects how I practice nursing
Personal views and attitudes have a big effect on how nurses do their jobs. I care for my patients in a whole-person way by using nursing techniques that take into account all of their health needs. I help people with their mental and emotional health by counseling them and teaching them about their health. This gives patients a lot of power to take care of their own health by having good mental and emotional patterns. I also have to be mentally and physically healthy to have such an effect on people.
Section B: Preference for Personality
B1. Results of the Personality Test
“Humanmetrics Jung Typology Test: Your Type is INTP, which stands for Introvert, Intuitive, Thinking, and Perceiving. You favor introversion over extraversion by a small amount (16%). You like Intuition a little bit more than Sensing (9%). You don’t care much about thinking more than feeling (1%). You don’t really care much about Perceiving or Judging (3%).”
B2. A look at the results of the test
The results of the test show that I am an INTP. People with an INTP attitude are usually quiet and good at thinking things through. King and Mason (2020) say that people in this group like to be alone and think about how things work and how to solve the problems that come from the strange ways that things work. As they pay more attention to their own thinking, their inner world gets richer. Since they don’t have a big group of friends, they only spend time with a small group of people. Also, they like to keep their choices open and feel limited by too much planning and structure (King & Mason, 2020). I’m a shy person who likes to think things through before doing anything. But I don’t agree with the test results that only a few people can be your friends. I like to talk to people, and I’ve made and kept a lot of long-term friends.
B2a. Taking a look at what people want
The test results are right when they say that I slightly prefer being alone to being around other people. Most of the time, when I talk to people at work, I’m trying to get something done. When it comes to my business relationships, I talk to people, but when the topic of conversation changes to something other than work, I tend to be quiet. So, in terms of social life, I would call myself a loner. The test results say I have little or no preference for perceiving over judging, but I don’t think that’s true. I think I have no preference for perceiving over judging at all. This trait fits with the job I’ve chosen. As a nurse, I like being in charge and coming up with new ideas and ways to help patients. I also like studying decisions before putting them into action. Even though I wouldn’t call myself outgoing, my communication skills are great, and that’s how I’m able to give people the tools they need to take control of their mental health and keep their health in their own hands. When it comes to my best things to do, I like to be alone and do things like play the violin. This is common for INTPs because they don’t have many friends.
B2b. Possible problems
As an INTP, the hardest thing about my job is that I always second-guess myself when making important choices. Since I am a critical thinker, I usually make choices after carefully weighing all the pros and cons. Jankowski (n.d.) agrees with this task and says that it often makes people feel like they are about to fail all the time. This keeps me from making some important changes that could make things better. Because of this, some parts of health care are falling behind and not taking advantage of new science discoveries that could lead to many breakthroughs. Another problem is that I don’t get along well with my coworkers. This is because I don’t have many friends outside of work.
Section C: How to Practice Mindfulness
To work on projects and finish them by the dates that were set.
To keep a healthy body and a good group of friends.
Keep a good mix between work and life.
To stay full of energy at work and pass that energy on to the people I talk to.
To take more risks and accept failures by following through on well-thought-out choices and putting them into action.
To meet more people at work and talk to them.
To get my coworkers to care deeply about other people.
To get my patients to feel a strong spiritual link to their religions.
How to reach your goals
To reach my physical goals, I would start going to the gym on the weekends again. This will be on top of the three morning runs I usually do every week. I will also only drink coffee in the morning instead of twice a day. By doing this, I would increase the amount of healthy sleep I get, which would be good for my mental health. In terms of the most important goals, I will try not to let my family and social life get in the way of my work. Before and after work, I will clear my mind. To reach my emotional goals, I will make more of an effort to socialize with my coworkers by going to social events put on by the department. I will also read self-help books to build up my courage and help me take more risks. To reach my spiritual goals, I will do my best to share my plans with others whenever I have the chance, and I will keep an open mind.
Section D: Environment for Healing
D1. Environments That Heal Right Away
New York Presbyterian Hospital is in New York City, which is in the state of New York. With about 20,000 workers and room for 2,678 patients (New York- Presbyterian, 2020). It was connected to Weill Cornell Medicine Columbia and University Vagelos, college of doctors and surgeons. The hospital was named fourth in the United States and first in New York State (New York- Presbyterian, 2020). This means that it has high standards for its health care services. It focuses mostly on the western model of health and healing, with a little bit of the eastern model thrown in. This includes things like working out, eating right, doing yoga, and meditating (New York- Presbyterian, 2020). Close ties between patients and their families and friends help them build relationships with other people. Patients have access to information brochures and patient trainers, which helps improve their behavior by teaching them about their different conditions. The outside world is set up in a way that makes it easier for people to talk to each other and promotes social welfare.
The other hospital that helps people get better is the California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, California. (California Pacific Medical Center, 2020) It can hold up to 274 people. It focuses mostly on emergency care. It helps people who are going through complicated medical treatments heal by giving them guided imagery and visualization. It also offers yoga, meditation, Qigong, and tai chi to help people heal faster after surgery (California Pacific Medical Center, 2020). The layout of the building is open and peaceful, and the tall trees that circle the hospital add to this. The setting makes it easier for patients and caretakers to get along, which is good for healing. The hospital uses a lot of different types of digital and written media to give people important information. This is good for the patients’ mental health because they learn more through these sources.
D2. How Self-Awareness and Insight Can Be Used The eastern model of health and healing can be used in my building, which is one of the ways it can be used. Yoga and meditation are two activities that will help patients find peace and security within themselves. A new program that makes yoga and meditation necessary for patients who live on their own would do a lot to improve their mental and physical strength.
