2808NRS Assessment 2: Trimester 2, 2018
Due Date: Week 6; Monday 20th August by 5pm
Learning Outcomes Assessed: 1, 2, 3 & 4
The aim of this case-based assignment is to allow you to demonstrate your clinical reasoning skills, your capacity to differentiate normal from abnormal presentation and to identify appropriate (evidence-based) investigations and treatment modalities associated with the assigned case-study, which are skills that are crucial to safe and effective nursing practice.
Individual, Written Assignment, concept map
Total Marks: 100
For this task you need to create a single (1) slide (using PowerPoint) colour coded concept map and provide a 750 word explanation, demonstrating analysis of the case study scenario emailed to you in week 1. A PowerPoint template file will be made available for you to customise based on your assigned case scenario.
In your concept map you must include:
1) Your Interpretation of the patient’s risk factors (from the case-study scenario) and determine how these risk factors relate to the diagnosed disease/disorder using evidence based literature;
2) An outline of the links between the aetiology, cellular pathology and the pathophysiology of the diagnosed disease;
3) A description of how the pathophysiology of the disease/disorder accounts for the patient’s clinical manifestations (described in the case-study scenario); and
4) An analysis and interpretation including evidence-based research to suggest appropriate diagnostic assessments and treatment modalities for the patient’s diagnosis.
In your 750 word written explanation you must:
1) Explain the links between the patient’s risk factors and aetiology to account for the disease’s/disorder’s pathophysiology.
2) Describe how the disease’s/disorder’s pathophysiology manifests through the patient’s signs and symptoms (clinical manifestations).
3) Justify your suggested diagnostic tests and treatment modalities listed in the concept map on their relevance and appropriateness for the diagnosed disease/disorder.
Submission via Turnitin within the course Learning@Griffith site by Monday week 6, 20th August 2018, 5pm.
The concept map (colour coded) should be a maximum of 1 PowerPoint slide in length and the 750 words written explanation (excluding reference list) should follow on the next slide/s;
