Response 1a-Unit 1 DB 1 Thompson

Barriers to Teaching and Obstacles to Learning

According to Bastable (2013) barriers to teaching are defined as those factors that impede the nurse’s ability to deliver educational services; obstacles to learning are defined as those factors that negatively affect the ability of the learner to pay attention and to process information (p. 19). Some examples of barriers to teaching are lack of time, lack of motivation, environmental issues related to the hospital setting such as lack of space or noise, lack of confidence and competence of the nurse educator, and absence of reimbursement. Examples of obstacles to learning include things like patients literacy level (including health literacy), stress from illness and being in the hospital, the extent of behavior changes needed, denial of learning needs, lack of support from s/o’s or other health professionals, and the complexity of the health care delivery system.

My current role in nursing is that of case management, I work with patients who have been newly diagnosed with certain chronic diseases, two of the most common are diabetes and hypertension. I am fortunate that I work in the outpatient environment so some of the barriers to teaching and obstacles to learning that bedside nurses face such as lack of time, and environmental issues aren’t as big of a factor for me. In addition I have the luxury of doing my teaching when the patient is not under the stress of being in the hospital for an acute illness. My biggest challenges are related to denial of learning needs, the extent of the changes the patient needs to make, lack of support and understanding especially from significant others, and socioeconomic factors.

Strategies to Overcome Obstacles and Barriers

I use many strategies to try to overcome the obstacles that I face in teaching my patient population. Initially assessing the learning needs, readiness to learn and learning style of my patient in addition determining their literacy level. The printed learning materials used in my facility are written at a 5th grade level, I try to determine is if these will be ok for the patient or if they will need something more basic. After studying Knowles theory I have also started asking my patients (who are all adults) what they know about a topic before I begin teaching. According to Billings and Halstead (2016), the learning behaviors of adults are shaped by past experiences; their maturity and life experiences provide them with insights and the ability to see relationships (p., 216). I try to partner with the patient to establish learning goals based on the learning needs that have been assessed. I make an effort to have many different formats for the subjects I teach, and different tools that incorporate the various learning styles. I encourage patients to bring a family member or close friend to the teaching sessions and we discuss why the lifestyle changes need to be made and try to give them tools to be successful. In addition we problem solve so we can address such things as socioeconomic factors like how to save money on healthy food options, or where to go for coupons for medications.

Barriers to education are sociocultural, religious, personal, environmental, and governmental conditions that prevent education from taking place or being delivered, such as a lack of time or funding, lack of qualified educators, poor or no access to learning materials, or materials that are outdated, discrimination against learners based on gender, race, culture, sexual preference or identity, religion, or socioeconomic status that impacts their access to education. Additional barriers are the constantly changing laws and regulations that institutions and educators must keep up with that determine who provides education, and what and when education is provided (Mason, Leavitt, & Chaffee, 2016). Obstacles to learning are factors that negatively affect how a learner receives and processes information (how they learn) (Bastable, 2014). These obstacles include time, literacy issues, stressors, motivations and readiness to learn, and the availability of support staff for the learner.

While all barriers and obstacles may not be easily overcome, addressing as many of them as possible will lead to the best possible learning outcomes. To address barriers and obstacles, educational institutions can provide a variety of programs with different learning modalities to increase access, affordability, and more employment options for educators. Diversity education and training for those involved in education would reduce barriers associated with discrimination (De Young, 2014). Additionally, using a variety of teaching strategies and materials that are well suited to the needs, abilities, and literacy levels of the learners would help them to overcome some obstacles they may have, and be more interested and willing to learn than if they were presented with the information in an uninteresting or difficult to understand way (De Young, 2014).

The nursing process and educational process are similar yet different in many ways. The nursing process deals with the nurse doing the assessment, diagnosis, planning, implementation, and evaluation of the patients ‘situation and cares given.

The educational process is the learning process that is provided from the educators. The Educational process involves using the knowledge, skills, and values/beliefs when providing care to our patients. According to Kurtus (2012) “There is a general process for providing education to students, such that they understand the information, are able to use or apply it, and retain what they have learned.

The first part of the education process is to set goals or objectives for what you want to achieve in the class. Then you follow steps to provide education to the students. Finally, you evaluate how well you use the process in succeeding to achieve your goals.”

The nursing process is done when you are assessing a patient and working through a care plan. The Educational process is where you are being taught on how to use the process and how it will apply to your patients. Once you have learned the materials you should be able to put it all together to complete your head to toe assessment for you patients and apply the knowledge that you have to build the care plan. According to Bastable (2013) “The nursing process Identifies barriers to teaching and obstacles to learning.” This is very important for nurse educators because in the process of education or nursing with patients there will be barriers and these processes will help to work through the care that is being provided.

question4:After reading this case study, answer the questions following using APA format 500words.

A small military hospital at an isolated duty station in California relied on registered nurse volunteers with the American Red Cross to teach patient education classes. One of the classes was called the “Early Bird Class” for women with newly diagnosed pregnancies. The class was mandatory in order to get a first prenatal appointment whether this was a first pregnancy or not. Both active duty women and dependent wives were required to attend the class. Numbers at the class were usually high—the weekly audience varied from 5 to 20 women.

The small classroom was located at the base chapel, and was used for Sunday school on weekends. Due to budget cutbacks, most materials for teaching were over 5 years old or homemade. They consisted of a brief video on early pregnancy, lecture with flip charts, and handouts. The audio-visual equipment was unreliable.

Some of the topics covered were nutrition, avoidance of alcohol & tobacco, exercise guidelines, management of discomforts, what to expect from the hospital prenatal care & delivery process, signs & symptoms of prenatal emergencies, and preparation for childbirth class information. While some patients voiced resentment or frustration at their required attendance, the instructor received good feedback from the hospital staff about the level of preparation provided to these patients.

A. List the barriers to education and the obstacles to learning.

B. The “Early Bird Class” filled a real need for the essentials of prenatal education. Why might the class have been successful overall, despite its limitations?
