How bio-soc-psy informs pactice

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Using the codes and conduct of the Nursing Midwifery Council (NMC) [2004], my assignment will protect the identity and rights of the individuals and professionals whom I have met in my placement. My assignment will look at the theories of Biology, Sociology and Psychology and explain how they relate to nursing care. My chosen concept for sociology will be primary socialisation in the current British life. Using patriarchy to support my theories about the change of primary socialisation and how this meaning has changed in today's world from the past. I will relate it to a young girl and her baby whom I met on my placement and explain the theories into nursing care practice. My chosen concept for Biology will be the maintenance of blood pressure. Looking at the respiratory and circulatory systems in the homeostatic control of oxygen will help me explain the theory of blood pressure and how it relates to nursing care practice from my placement. My chosen concept for Psychology will be Erikson theory of personalities. (1968). My assignment will explain each of the eight stages of his personality development and how it relates to nursing care practice. Lawson and Garrold (1996) State "Primary socialisation...the learning of values and forms of behaviour in the front line agency...(p.211)," Lawson and Garrold are saying that a ...read more.

This is the process, which the body takes to control and regulate the blood pressure. The Haemoglobin is carried in the blood and the blood is pumped around the body by the heart inside the arteries. This process is known as the circulatory system. The circulatory system is the body's main transport system, carrying food and oxygen to the cells and taking waste products away. The circulatory system is made up of the vessels and the muscles that help and control the flow of the blood around the body. This process is called circulation because it circulates constantly, changing gases and maintaining a good balance of healthy cells in the body, which in turn allows the body to maintain a good homeostasis and keeps the body in mint condition. Everyone has a different blood pressure and it can change in the same person during the day and night. Your blood pressure varies by large amounts, depending on what you are doing. The lowest blood pressures occur when you are asleep or if you relax all your muscles. Standing up, exercising or anxiety all causes an increase in blood pressure. The top number, which is called the systolic pressure, shows the pressure in your arteries when your heart is forcing blood through them. ...read more.

Conclusion

it is applied to medicines, meaning "potencies". The virtues, in the order of the stages in which they may be acquired, are hope, will, purpose, confidence, fidelity, love, care, and wisdom. The eight stage theory of Erikson's psychological development can be found by Boeree, G, C. (2006). Website. James Marcia's work extended Erikson's, distinguishing different forms of identity, there is some evidence that those people who form the most coherent self-concept in adolescence are those who are most able to make intimate attachments in early adulthood. This supports Eriksonian theory, as it suggests those best equipped to resolve the crisis of early adulthood are those who have most successfully resolved the crisis of adolescence. J, E, Marcia. (1966). By understanding erik's theory of psychological development, It made it easier for me to understand people's cognitive thinking abilities in the community during my placement. This allowed me to make an basic assesment of someones behaviour patterns and categorise them across the age-continuim. On my placement I came across a young mother who had a newborn baby. The baby would cry and the mother would attend to its needs, either stroking his/her face and talking to the baby in baby language and giving the baby a bottle of milk. The baby would be in the first stages of erik's theory and the mother is stage 6 of erik's theory. ...read more.

    This argument was also correct. Genetic variation means that some animals are more useful than others, meaning that cloning the useful ones would create a more productive livestock.
