You can help patients manage their anxiety through a few different interventions.

As a nurse, you can help patients manage their anxiety through a few different interventions. First, it’s important to talk with them about the problem and listen closely to what they have to say. A person can feel overwhelmed by anxiety when they’re not sure what is causing it or how long it will last. Asking your patient about their background may also be helpful; for example, if someone recently lost a loved one or suffered an injury that caused them pain, these events could contribute to anxiety symptoms like fear of abandonment or persistent physical discomfort.

Once you understand the nature of your patient’s worries and concerns—and once they’ve identified effective coping mechanisms—help him put those tools into practice. Encourage him to practice relaxation techniques such as deep breathing exercises and guided imagery at home so they become second nature when he needs them most (such as during times when his heart races). Finally, evaluate whether these self-management strategies are working effectively by checking back in regularly with him—but only do so once every two weeks or so: otherwise, he might feel overwhelmed by frequent attention from nurses who aren’t giving him enough time away from hospital settings where there are many other people around too!
