Pregnancy-Induced Hypertension

Ensuring that pregnant women receive the required help and support is one of the key goals in nursing and healthcare. Therefore, a framework that will help manage some of the most challenging aspects of pregnancy should be seen a s a massive improvement in the quality of care for pregnant mothers. According to the existing body of studies, hypertension represents the key concern and a major threat to the well-being of a pregnant woman, as well as the fetus (Cunningham & LaMarca, 2018).

Specifically, with the rise in hypertension in pregnant mothers, the latter experience particular difficulties with the functioning of their heart and kidneys, which have to perform with an increased intensity (Cunningham & LaMarca, 2018). As a result, the threat of a stroke or a similar health condition emerges, which calls for the introduction of extra education regarding the prevention and management of the specified health risks in pregnant women. By creating a training program during which nursing experts will build the skills needed for managing hypertension concerns in pregnant women, one will increase the safety of the target population.

Project Concept

The project is centered on the development of a training system that will increase preparedness toward the need to manage and mitigate hypertension in women among nurses and healthcare experts. It is believed that the described approach will cause nurses and healthcare experts working in the prenatal environment identify risk factors that may cause pregnant women to develop hypertension and, therefore, become subjected to the threat of a stroke (Cunningham & LaMarca, 2018).

Specifically, the project will involve instructing nurses and obstetricians on the methods of identifying the risks of hypertension and the related health concerns in pregnant women at fairly early stages of pregnancy. Thus, the risks associated with the stroke and other threatening conditions will be minimized. |Moreover, the trainees will embrace the variety of methods for addressing the developing hypertension rates in pregnant women by introducing a combined method of medications and therapy. Thus, a significant drop in the number and extent of risks faced by pregnant women in the clinical setting, as well as their home environment, will be minimized.

Project Theoretical Framework

To ensure that pregnant women follow the requirements and standards prescribed by nurses, forging a more meaningful and strong bond between a nurse and a patient should be considered an absolute necessity. Indeed, due to the increased emotional pressure and the drastic changes across their bodies as a result of a rapidly adjusting endocrinal system, pregnant women are likely to experience significant challenges building resilience needed to overcome health concerns and manage the related health risks.

Therefore, expecting that they will change their lifestyle immediately and adhere to instructions closely without proper communication with a nurse would be wrong. For this reason, using the Theory of Interpersonal Relations as the framework that explains the complexity of personal interactions and offers strategies for improving them will be utilized.

Measurable Outcomes

It is presumed that the use of the suggested approach for minimizing the risks of hypertension in pregnant women will help to address the concerns associated with the outcomes, such as a stroke or a miscarriage. Namely, after the research is implemented and the intervention is introduced, at least a 20% increase in the efficacy of managing hypertension in pregnant mothers is expected to take place. Furthermore, positive changes are expected to occur within two weeks after the introduction of the intervention.
