Overview of Dilemma
Holistic nursing care entails caring for not just the physical needs of every patient, but also the soul (emotional) and the spirit. In this dilemma, a patient with a stage IV lung cancer has a strong faith and belief system, but his illness is beginning to cause him to question his faith. How the nurse can practically support and care for his emotional and spiritual needs in this context is the essence of this patient dilemma.
Clinical Dilemmas are a new series of clinical reasoning case studies that emphasize the “art” of nursing. Each study has an emphasis that integrates aspects of caring, spiritual care, nurse engagement/presence, and ethical decision making and its relevance to nursing practice.
These case studies can be used in the classroom as an active learning tool to develop the ethical comportment of nurses as well as in post-conference in the clinical setting. Students will also develop clinical reasoning as they identify relevant clinical data, determine the nursing priority and resultant nursing interventions.
