Develop a patient-centered concept map based upon the best available evidence that has been individualized to treat your specific patient.

Unit 3 Assignment 1

Evidence-Based Patient-Centered Concept Map

Professional Context

Concept maps are widely used in nursing care. They can be effective tools for organizing workload, prioritizing patient care strategies, and developing personalized care approaches. In addition to organizing care, they can aid in ensuring that the a patient's care is individualized to not only their health conditions, but also their familial cultural, and environmental situation.

Scenario

You created a draft of an evidence-based concept map to illustrate an approach to care for a patient in the Evidence-Based Patient-Centered Care media piece. For this assignment, you will build upon and refine your draft of the concept map, as well as develop a narrative to support your concept map. Your concept map and narrative for the individualized care of your chosen case should demonstrate that you have considered and researched the following.

Instructions

The bullet points below correspond to grading criteria in the scoring guide. Be sure that your map and narrative address all of the bullets below, at minimum. You may also want to read the Evidence-Based Patient-Centered Concept Map Scoring Guide and Guiding Questions: Evidence-Based Patient-Centered Concept Map (both linked in the Resources) to create an outline for your assignment and to better understand how each criterion will be assessed.

When creating your concept map and narrative, be sure to note the areas where you need to include your evidence-based support. Also, be clear about what your communication strategies are for relating information to the patient and their family.

Part 1: Concept Map

Develop a patient-centered concept map based upon the best available evidence that has been individualized to treat your specific patient's health, economic, and cultural needs.

Part 2: Narrative

Analyze the needs of both the patient from your chosen case and their family to determine how they will influence a patient-centered concept map.

Justify the value and relevance of the evidence you used as the basis for your patient-centered concept map.

Propose criteria that can be used to evaluate the degree to which the desired outcomes of the patient-centered concept map were achieved.

Apply strategies for communicating with your chosen patient and their family in an ethical, culturally sensitive, and inclusive way.

Integrate relevant sources to support assertions, correctly formatting citations and references using APA style.

Submission Requirements

Length of narrative: 2–4 double-spaced, typed pages. Your narrative should be succinct yet substantive.

Number of references: Cite a minimum of 3–5 sources of scholarly or professional evidence in total between your Concept Map and Narrative. Be sure you are citing evidence in both parts.

APA formatting: Resources and citations are formatted according to current APA style.

Please submit both your concept map and your narrative as separate documents in the assignment submissions area.

You must submit both documents at the same time. Make sure both documents are attached in the assignment area before submitting your assignment.

Unit 6 Assignment 1

Evidence-Based Population Health Improvement Plan

Professional Context

Master's-level nurses need to be able to think beyond the bedside. It is important to be able to research, synthesize, and apply evidence that will result in improved health outcomes for the communities and populations that are part of your care setting. Improving outcomes at a community or population level, even incrementally, can create noticeable and significant aggregate health improvements across all of a care setting's patients.

Scenario

Your organization has created an initiative to improve one of the pervasive and chronic health concerns in the community. Some examples of possibilities for health improvement initiatives are nationwide concerns, such as type 2 diabetes, HIV, obesity, and the Zika virus. However, your organization wants you to identify the health concern that is most appropriate to address for the community in your practice environment. You will need to do your own research to gather and evaluate the relevant data for your chosen issue.

Instructions

The bullet points below correspond to grading criteria in the scoring guide. Be sure that your population health improvement plan addresses all of the bullets below, at minimum. You may also want to read the Evidence-Based Population Health Improvement Plan Scoring Guide and Guiding Questions: Evidence-Based Population Health Improvement Plan (both linked in the Resources) to better understand how each criterion will be assessed:

Evaluate the environmental and epidemiological data about your community so that you can illustrate and diagnose widespread population health issues.

Develop an ethical health improvement plan that addresses the population health issue you have identified in your evaluation. The plan should be based upon the best available evidence and meet the cultural and environmental needs of your community.

Justify the value and relevance of the evidence you used as the basis for your population health improvement plan.

Propose criteria that can be used to evaluate the achievement of your health improvement plan's outcomes.

Explain how you plan to apply strategies for communicating with community members and colleagues in the health care profession in an ethical, culturally sensitive, and inclusive way about the development and implementation of your health improvement plan.

Integrate relevant sources to support assertions, correctly formatting citations and references using APA style.

Example assignment: You may use the Evidence-Based Population Health Improvement Plan Example, linked in the Resources, to give you an idea of what a Proficient or higher rating on the scoring guide would look like.

Submission Requirements

Length of submission: 3-5 double-spaced, typed pages. Your plan should be succinct yet substantive.

Number of references: Cite a minimum of 3-5 sources of scholarly or professional evidence that support your evaluation, recommendations, and plans.

APA formatting: Resources and citations are formatted according to current APA style.

Unit 9 Assignment 1

Patient-Centered Care Report

Professional Context

Master's-level nurses need to be able to think critically about the evidence, outcomes data, and other relevant information they encounter throughout their daily practice. Often the evidence or information that a nurse encounters, researches, or studies is not presented in the exact context of that nurse's practice. A key skill of the master's-level nurse is to be able to transfer evidence from the context it was presented in and apply to a different context in order to maximize the benefit to patients in that new context.

Scenario

For this assignment you will be basing your report on the scenario presented in the Evidence-Based Health Evaluation and Application media piece. Some of the writing you completed and exported from the media piece can constitute your pre-writing and inform the development of your final submission. Further, even though the media piece was framed within one type of care setting, you can extrapolate the situation into another care setting that is more relevant to you. You will still be able to apply community outcomes data to an individual patient or case.

Instructions

For this assignment, you will apply the outcomes of the Population Health Improvement Initiative (PHII) to a patient-centered care report. The bullet points below correspond to grading criteria in the scoring guide. Be sure that your report addresses all of the bullets below, at minimum. You may also want to read the Patient-Centered Care Report Scoring Guide and Guiding Questions: Patient-Centered Care Report (both linked in the Resources) to better understand how each criterion will be assessed:

Evaluate the outcomes of a population health improvement initiative.

Propose strategies for improving the outcomes of the population health improvement plan, or ensuring that all outcomes are being addressed, based on the best available evidence.

Develop an individualized personal care approach that incorporates lessons learned from a population health improvement initiative.

Justify the value and relevance of evidence used as the basis for your personal care approach to your patient.

Propose a framework that could be used to evaluate desired outcomes of your approach to personalizing care for your patients and areas that could be applied to similar situations and patients in the future.

Write content clearly and logically, with correct use of grammar, punctuation, and spelling.

Integrate relevant sources to support assertions, correctly formatting citations and references using APA style.

Example assignment: You may use the Patient-Centered Care Report Example, linked in the Resources, to give you an idea of what a Proficient or higher rating on the scoring guide would look like.

Submission Requirements

Length of submission: 4-6 double-spaced, typed pages. Your report should be succinct yet substantive.

Number of references: Cite a minimum of 3-5 sources of scholarly or professional evidence that support your evaluation, recommendations, and plans.

APA formatting: Resources and citations are formatted according to current APA style.
