1. Patient will discuss realistic 1. Assess the clients level of anxiety and physical reactions to anxiety. Symptoms evaluated are mood, tension,
fear, insomnia, concentration, worry, depressed mood, somatic complaints, and cardiovascular, respiratory,
goals related to medical
gastrointestinal, genitourinary, autonomic, and behavioral symptoms. Anxiety is the risk factor for major
condition within 24 hours adverse cardiac risk events in persons with stable coronary artery disease. (Akley, 2013, p.138
2. Patient will seek help in 2. Use empathy to encourage the client to interpret the anxiety symptoms as normal. The way a nurse
dealing with feelings by interacts with a client influences his/her quality of life. Providing psychological and social support can reduce
the symptoms and problems associated with anxiety. (Akley, 2013, p.138)

3. If irrational thoughts or fears are present, offer the client accurate information and encourage him or her to
support within 24 hours talk about the meaning of the events contributing to the anxiety. Avoid and suppress painful emotions,
thoughts and sensations, and limit their involvement in meaningful activities. (Akley, 2013, p.138)
4. Encourage the client to use meaningful self-talk. Reducing negative self-talk and increasing positive self-talk
can be beneficial for all types of anxiety. (Akley, 2013, p.138)
5. Intervene when possible to remove sources of anxiety. Removing or reducing sources of stress and anxiety
among patients has been shown to decrease hypertension and comorbid conditions. (Akley, 2013, p.138)
6. Explain all activities, procedures and issues that involve the client; use nonmedical terms and calm, slow
speech Do this in advance of procedures when possible and validate the clients understanding. Effective
nurse-client communication is critical to efficient care provision. (Akley, 2013, p.138)
7. Provide backrubs/massage for the client to decrease anxiety. Massage was shown to be an excellent method
for reducing anxiety. (Akley, 2013, p.138)
8. Use therapeutic touch and healing touch techniques. Healing touch may be one of the most useful nursing
interventions available to reduce anxiety. (Akley, 2013, p.138)

12. Encourage clients to pray. Prayer, scripture reading and clergy visits were found to comfort some clients, but
sometimes-specific religious tenets may be troubling and need to be resolved before the client can find
peace. (Akley, 2013, p.142)

Interventions with rationale and citation
1. Client will demonstrate
adaptation to changes in 1. Incorporate psychological questions related to body image as part of nursing assessment to identify clients at risk
physical appearance or body for body image disturbance (those with stomas/ostomies/colostomies or other disfiguring conditions). Assessment
of psychological issues can help to identify clients at risk for body image concerns as a result of a disfiguring
function as evidenced by condition. (Akley, 2013, p.162)

disorders and make appropriate psychosocial referrals if indicated. The result from this study indicates specific forms

3. Assess for the influence of cultural beliefs, regional norms, and values on the clients body image. Each client
change irrational beliefs and should be assessed for body image based on the phenomenon of communication, time space, social organization,
expectations regarding his environmental control, and biological variations. (Akley, 2013, p.164)
4. Acknowledge that body image disturbances can affect all individuals regardless of culture, race, or ethnicity. (Akley,
medical condition by 24 hours 2013, p.164)
5. Assess clients level of social support, as it is one of the determinants of clients recovery and emotional
health.Males who perceived they have good social support were found to adapt better to changes in body image.
(Akley, 2013, p.164)
6. Encourage client to discuss concerns related to sexuality and provide support or information as indicated. Many
conditions that affect body image also affect sexuality. Brown and Randle found that clients (particularly females)
with stomas often believe they are less sexually attractive after surgery, though their sexual partner may not share
that view. (Akley, 2013, p.164)
7. Use cognitive-behavioral to assist the client to express his emotions and feelings. This study of clients with bulimia
Evaluation used CBT and helped the clients to disentangle themselves regarding body image and weight. (Akley, 2013, p.162)
8. Help client describe ideal self, identity self-criticisms, and give suggestions to support acceptance of self. Job
rehabilitation and body image should be incorporated into daily care of head and neck cancer clients. For example,
participants could learn how to use cosmetic strategies to improve their facial appearance during OPD syndrome

attractiveness and comment on the naturalness of the aging process. (Akley, 2013, p.163)
12. Refer clients who are having difficulty with personal acceptance, personal and social body image disruption, sexual
concerns, reduced self-care skills, and the management of surgical complications to an interdisciplinary team or
specialist (eg. ostomy nurse) if available. There is sufficient research-based evidence to conclude that intestinal
ostomy surgery exerts a clinically relevant impact on health-related quality of life, and that nursing interventions
can ameliorate this effect. (Akley, 2013, p.164)
