When considering using a touch therapy in the care of your client, one of the issues that should be considered is that of the comfort level about using touch on the part of both the patient and the nurse. By using touch, the nurse will enter the personal space of the patient. Discuss three ways you can incorporate touch into your daily practice. Identify one way that a person may react as you enter their personal space either with your touch or a close personal presence, and how can you address this issue? Include a personal experience you have had when using touch. Cite sources from the readings or online library.
