-I have attached a PPT I started and that can be used to continue
-attached the instructions as well
The reason why the topic was chosen:
The topic I have chosen to research and explore for the class presentation is “Nursing during an epidemic, pandemic, or natural disaster across the country or around the globe”. I felt this was the perfect topic to further dissect given that the field of nursing was just recently hit and is still suffering from a global pandemic. Nursing and the healthcare field as a whole suffered in ways the public has not been made aware of. The pandemic brought with it both positive and negative affects to our field of work. Which is why I have chosen this topic in order to come up with a plan to promote a positive change. Bringing awareness to these issues/changes will involve the need for participation in our local government to fund and support this nursing issue. Solving the trends/issues the pandemic has brought will alleviate the impact it has had on various workplaces. The solutions will be integrated/implemented with the hopes of having a positive affect within clinical settings. This topic is currently relevant which is why as a community we should come together to shed light and bring awareness to its importance. A few things the pandemic has caused is:
-affects on the psychological well-being of nurses
-decreased work flow frequency
-decreased work satisfaction
etc. (Bartzik, Aust, & Peifer, 2021).
Nurse are the healthcare fields front line workers, one of the most essential positions when our world is faced with a (pandemic, epidemic, or natural disaster).
