Improving self-image among patients in the burn unit.
Improving self-image among patients in the burn unit. This project seeks to evaluate and identify known risk factors contributing to self-image and depression in burn victims. I will be implementing a journal at the bedside to assist patients during their healing process. By allowing them to express their concerns and fears. This will assist patients in understanding different methods of coping through writing.
Capstone Clinical Project: The project must demonstrate the students ability to synthesize and apply the knowledge and skills acquired in the academic program to real world nursing issues & problems
