COMPLETING A CARE PLAN
A document or a personal record of the health conditions which stands as a mutual agreement between patient and his/her health care professional is referred to as a “Care Plan”. Usually a person with a health condition of long term opts for a care plan as it is helpful in assessing the care required and to be provided. A care plan is generally opted by the patient by insisting it to their GP or any other healthcare professional as this could help in improving health conditions of the patient and work towards achieving goals which in some cases are quitting smoking, gaining weight, etc. A care plan helps in achieving all goals by taking all physical and mental conditions of the patient and by choosing best method in order to achieve the goals. A long term health condition implies that the patient may have to get check-ups more often and needs to be monitored. If necessary the patient may also be asked to consider medication. A regular health check-up with constant consultation with doctor or GP in order to know more about the care and medication received by the patient is called as a “care plan review”, which is essentially to make sure that all requirements are met and if the nurse or social worker is working towards the goals chosen by the patient. Patient will be reviewed time to time by taking feedback which helps in evaluating the progress of the care plan or to make any amendments if necessary.
