Assignment: The INR Clinical
Assignment: The INR Clinical
The role of technology in improving health care outcomes – Use technology to improve a patient outcome. Example: Formulating a tool to teach the nursing staff how to use a screening protocol that is based upon an Excel spread sheet or use of a power point module of which the nurses may complete on their own time to meet the learning requirements of the new screening protocol or screening tool.
(Sample) Week 7 (March 4-10)
As I picked myself up from a hard week I decided to meet with mentor at the anticoagulation center and help with the project at hand. We prepared pamphlets and brochures and hand them out to the patients at the INR clinical, patient teaching was also done on an individual level. I felt satisfied to have helped to educate them on the adherence to their therapy. DQ’s completed and I started my planning ahead to meet week 9 assignments. I reflected on Leadership and economic models. The current health care system in the United States is unstainable. All patients have a desire to receive the best care, but it needs to cost less. The healthcare system must therefore be changed to align with the interests of the public in order to regain public trust. The various different stakeholders in the healthcare system have developed challenges in enhancing the value of care. Health care professionals such as doctors and nurses are in a better position to enhance the value of care. As a nurse I have identified servant leadership as the best way for health care facilities to enhance value because it pays attention on the strength of a team, creating trust and serving patients’ needs.
Week 8 – Health policy – Update a unit or organizational policy with EBP research that impacts daily nursing care of the unit patients. Example: Develop an approach for identifying preventive service needs and gaps in care by running daily reports on patients with scheduled visits.
(Sample) Week 8 (March 11-17)
No assignment due, I completed my DQ’s and truly believe I have a better understanding with what’s expected from my instructor. I spent a total of 6 hours this week on assigned work. As the week drew closer to the end my anxiety level is at its peak, along with work and family stressors.
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
