Holistic care philosophy
In a holistic care philosophy, developing a plan that addresses the care of the Whole person is necessary to support health and healing. The holistic caring process utilizes the steps of assessment, identification of patterns/challenges/needs, defining specific outcomes, developing a therapeutic care plan, and implementation and evaluation of the plan.
The following aspects of the person should be included in the plan: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual patterns and needs.
Make a case file of a family member, friend, or coworker. This cannot be a patient from your clinical practice. The file should include the following details: initials, age, past and present health status, present concerns, past and present coping patterns, healing beliefs, health values, social support, religious/spiritual practices, and his or her personal health goals.
Write a summary regarding all the aspects of the patient (physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual) on the basis of the information you get on compiling the responses.
Post a summary of your experience of this process in a 2-3 page Word document to the W1:
