Identify how the COPD patient was admitted to hospital, their presenting complaint and the care pathway they followed.

Description

A 3000 word, patient centred case study focusing on a patient you have cared for in a medical or surgical ward/unit.

The student must:

1) Select a patient they have cared for on a medical or surgical ward/unit/other area. (PLEASE SELECT AND TALK ABOUT A C.O.P.D PATIENT IN THE ASSIGNMENT)

2) Identify how the COPD patient was admitted to hospital, their presenting complaint and the care pathway they followed.

3) Discuss the overarching nursing assessment used to identify the patients’ problems on admission.

4) Critically analyse one element of care given to the COPD patient during their admission.

5) Ensure the discussion refers to relevant local and national policies and strategies and multi professionals involved in the patients care.

6) Analyse any potential discharge plans that may be required to ensure the patient remains safe when they return home.

The 4 Learning Outcomes that are assessed by the patient centred case study include: (ALL 4 OF THESE ARE ESSENTIAL TO BE COVERED CORRECTLY)

1) Demonstrate explicit knowledge of the principles of surgical and medical care in adult nursing both within the hospital and the community

2) Apply the principles of surgical and medical nursing to assess and develop care plans in partnership with multi agency team for various medical and surgical conditions within the hospital and the community setting

3) Demonstrate explicit knowledge and understanding of national policies and local strategies and how these impact on the individual patient.

4) Implement national and local guidance and strategies to support practice within the students’ sphere of practice.

FURTHER ESSENTIAL INFORMATION:

Select a patient they have cared for on a medical or surgical ward or other appropriate clinical area e.g. theatres or community.

Identify how the patient was admitted to hospital or was referred to the community, their presenting complaint and the care pathway they followed.

Discuss the overarching nursing assessment tool used to identify the patients’ problems on admission.

Ensure the discussion refers to relevant local and national policies and strategies and the other multi professionals involved in the patients care e.g. dietician, physio, OT.

Consider where relevant any potential discharge plans that may be required to ensure the patient remains safe when they return home.
