This article highlights how nurses can make use of common nursing interventions to ensure that the full impact of their skills is embedded in their care—using the administration of vapocoolants as the focus of the discussion” Richardson and Oven (2016).

Abstract:

How nurses make a difference and influence outcome has been the subject of much debate over many years and is perhaps more relevant now owing to healthcare funding being a scarce commodity. Nurses need justification and validation of what they do. Nursing therapeutics is a relatively new term that can help nurses and others to appreciate the multifariousness, complexity and value of what they do.

It encapsulates the means by which a nurse delivers care that is both evidence based and beneficial to his or her patients. This article highlights how nurses can make use of common nursing interventions to ensure that the full impact of their skills is embedded in their care—using the administration of vapocoolants as the focus of the discussion. It will be illustrated that through each patient contact, a nurse can establish therapeutic principles that can positively influence health outcomes.
