正确答案 :
2. Give the wife information about a support group.
解释 :
The nurse’s most appropriate action is to give the wife information about a support group in her area. Family members need and want education and support. Suggesting that the wife see an HCP is not necessary in this situation. She needs support and education. Recommending that she talk with her close friend may be helpful if she so chooses. However, this is not as helpful as attending a support group. Here, the wife can learn, share, obtain support from, and provide support to others with similar situations. Having the wife share her feelings with her husband may or may not be appropriate or helpful to her or her husband. The husband may be unable to help his wife with adaptive coping, and therefore, the client’s self- esteem could be diminished.
