Example text

This means that the nurse acting as advocate respects the patient as an individual, a real person who has individual needs and preferences and one who can make decisions. In valuing the patient as a holistic being, nurses promote dignity. Evidence of valuing will be those activities that show nurses enabling and supporting patients to make decisions, freely and without pressure. They include encouraging patients to make their decision and supporting patient-centred goals and priorities. This aspect is stated by Curtin, who claims that advocacy is ‘not-so-simple good nursing practice’.
