Evidence suggests that patients do better when their expectations

 Evidence suggests that patients do better when their expectations about specific benefits of nursing care are discussed and met.  Design a “comfort contract” whereby patients or their surrogates designate an expected level of postsurgical overall comfort, and also where they can specify chronic discomforts and interventions that they use at home for relief.

How would your communication and interview techniques for building a health history differ with each patient?

For the first week, please make sure you read over assignments. This week look where your name falls alphabetically. For Example if your Last name is Apple, you would do case study #1.

  • How      would your communication and interview techniques for building a health      history differ with each patient?
  • How      might you target your questions for building a health history based on the      patient’s social determinants of health?
  • What      risk assessment instruments would be appropriate to use with each patient,      or what questions would you ask each patient to assess his or her health      risks?
  • Identify      any potential health-related risks based upon the patient’s age, gender,      ethnicity, or environmental setting that should be taken into      consideration.
  • Select one of      the risk assessment instruments presented in Chapter 1 or Chapter 5 of      the Seidel’s Guide to Physical Examination text, or      another tool with which you are familiar, related to your selected      patient.
  • Develop at      least five targeted questions you would ask your selected patient      to assess his or her health risks and begin building a health history.

Assignment Due Today

A First Nation in Northern Ontario has developed a waste transfer station to manage solid waste from the community as there isn’t additional space at the current landfill. Now operational, the transfer station faces some challenges – the waste is trucked about an hour away and has basically put the First Nation’s problem in the backyard of someone else; the bins are being charged by volume not weight, which means there can be voids in the bin with air gaps that the Nation is being charged for. There are two non-Indigenous communities and four Indigenous communities within an hour of the transfer station. What can the Nation do to reduce the transportation cost of the waste? Are there economies of scale that can be gained by working with surrounding communities?

Assignment 2: Intervention Treatment Plan

According to the Council on Social Work Education, Competency 4: Engage In Practice-informed Research and Research-informed Practice:

Social workers understand quantitative and qualitative research methods and their respective roles in advancing a science of social work and in evaluating their practice. Social workers know the principles of logic, scientific inquiry, and culturally informed and ethical approaches to building knowledge. Social workers understand that evidence that informs practice derives from multi-disciplinary sources and multiple ways of knowing. They also understand the processes for translating research findings into effective practice.

Walden’s MSW program expects students in their specialization year to be able to:

  • Critically evaluate evidence based and “best practice” treatment interventions.
  • Compose clinical intervention plans that are grounded research-based knowledge

This assignment is intended to help students demonstrate the behavioral components of this competency in their field education.

To Prepare: Review the agency’s intervention/treatment plan used to engage clients. After reviewing the agency’s intervention/treatment plan, consult the literature and conduct extensive research, with the goal of finding best practices that supports or adds to the agency’s current intervention/treatment plan. The purpose of this assignment is to find research that supports or adds to the agency’s current intervention/treatment approach.

By Day 7

Submit a 1-2 page paper in which you:

  1. Briefly describe the agency’s intervention/treatment plan
  2. Briefly discuss best practices about interventions identified in the literature
  3. Briefly discuss how the agency can incorporate those best practices into the current intervention/treatment plan
  4. Provide a brief summary of the similarities and differences between the intervention/treatment plan used at the agency and the suggested practices in the literature

Note: If no formal process is used in the agency, discuss the agency’s current process and compare it to the suggestions in the literature. You are expected to present and discuss this assignment with your agency Field Instructor. Your field instructor will be evaluating your ability to demonstrate this competency in the field evaluation. In addition, you will submit this assignment for classroom credit. The Field Liaison will grade the assignment “PASS/FAIL,” see rubric for passing criteria.
