Integumentary Care Plans cover skin and nail conditions and other related health problems. These plans include: Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, Erectile Dysfunction, Premenstrual Syndrome, and Pelvic Inflammatory Disease. In addition, they cover Endocrine and Metabolic Disorders, such as Cushing’s Syndrome, Hyperglycemic Nonketotic Syndrome, and Hypothyroidism.
Integumentary care plans have many components, and rationales are an essential part of the plan. Rationales are scientific principles that justify the nursing interventions made in the plan. The rationales for a nursing intervention are written next to the interventions. They should include:
An empirical study is required to investigate the different types of care plans and the factors influencing their use. The purpose of this review is to develop a typology of care planning and to clarify the mechanisms by which such care planning benefits patients. The outcome of such research will inform future service development and evaluation. We hope that the results of this review will contribute to the discussion regarding the appropriate use of these plans in the health care setting. We also hope that the findings of this study will provide new insights into the current state of practice.
One of the major challenges of implementing care plans is ensuring continuity. Integral Care began implementing telehealth services for its clients in March, ensuring continuity of care and reducing the risk of coronavirus transmission. We hope that this example will provide a model for telehealth in the future. While it is not yet fully established, it has been a success in providing access to mental health care to people with IDD.
Health care professionals create individualized plans for each patient. These plans must have goals and objectives for each patient, as well as information about the patient’s current condition and potential risk factors. A health care professional will adjust a care plan based on this information and must set goals that are specific, measurable, achievable, and realistic. These goals will help determine the level of care a patient receives. Listed below are some tips for creating a customized plan for each individual patient.
The multidisciplinary team should develop the care plan with the patient and their family, as well as the patients’ caregivers. It should be easy to share and always up-to-date. Ideally, the plan should be electronic and integrated into the patient’s electronic health record, or EHR. An EHR is an essential tool for patient care, as it enables real-time collaboration and cloud access.
