Read the case study below then discuss your plan of nursing care for the client in essay format using the core principles of holism and person centered care.
Detail the ongoing nursing care interventions required to ensure Mr Jarvis’s needs are attended to and provide rationales under specific headings, e.g. hygiene needs. You will need to specify which component of the holistic model you are addressing with each care need. Hint: this could entail more than one holistic principle (Fig 1-4 page 13, Dempsey, Hillege, and Hill, 2015). You should address no less than 7 nursing considerations for this section.
