Reflection assignment

3.1: Demonstrate that they respect diversity and individual preferences and value differences, regardless of their own personal views.
To do this I will first, briefly describe the event, supporting my outline with relevant information. I will then explore the event, and discuss why it is important and how it relates to the learning outcome. I will also be discussing why materials such as law and guidelines say this is important. I will then proceed to analyse the incident by breaking it down and picking out the main features of the experience, discussing why they are important, whilst linking the main points together. I will attempt to think about opposing arguments to what I have explored, and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the arguments. Finally I will be using SMART goals, to create an action plan for future development.

I along with the other nurses respected his choice, and continued to treat him equal to other patients. The surgeons were persistent in their persuasion of the and due to their ethos “to cure all sick” (check what it actually is!) continued to attempt to talk the patient into the surgery, explaining the procedure, and the benefits of it to him.
