APPLICATION OF LEARNING THEORIES TO HEALTHCARE PRACTICE
Select one of the five learning theories discussed in your reading for this week and list at least 5 nursing interventions you would implement that would be consistent with the learning theory for one group of patients. Provide a rationale for why you feel the learning theory you selected is appropriate for your particular situation:
A group of young woman 20-30 years old who have just given birth within the past 3 months and are anxious to lose the weight they recently gained during their pregnancy. They are all stay-at-home moms and the majority of them are breast-feeding.
A group of 50 – 60 year old men and women who are hypertensive and want to learn about what it is and how to care for themselves.
A group of 70 – 80 year old women and some men who have some degree of heart failure but would like to participate in some low impact exercises appropriate for their age and pathology.
