Debreifing
Use the following format to reflect on the Week 4 iHuman Neurovascular Assessment. This was the Athena Washington case.
Paragraph One: What went well for you in the simulation? Provide examples of when you felt knowledgeable and confident in your skills. Do you feel the scenario was realistic? Why or why not?
Paragraph Two: What would you do differently next time if you were caring for a patient similar to Ms. Washington? Describe at least one area you identified where improvements could be made, specific to Ms. Washington’s assessment. Were you surprised by any of the feedback you were provided by iHuman? If yes, please explain.
Paragraph Three: What did you learn from this simulation that you could apply to nursing practice? Or, what did this simulation reinforce that you found valuable? Do you have any questions related to the scenario?
Discussion 1
Athena Washington is a 48 year-old African American woman who is diagnosed with neurological deficit. I conducted her comprehensive head-to-toe assessment. I performed well on the first round of the assessment and fortunately did not have to repeat her assessment. The performance areas that went particularly well were the review of the EHR and health history. I am feeling more confident locating important information in the EHR such as imaging results, vitals, progress notes and orders. I am also feeling more confident asking the health history questions and being able to understand the patient from a holistic perspective.
The performance area that did not go as well as I would have liked is the physical assessment. I correctly identified all of the patient’s problems, but I fell short on conducting the cranial nerve assessments, and I guess I forgot to get the patient’s height and weight. I only conducted the cranial nerve assessments that I thought were most relevant. I think I reached a point with the patient’s assessment where I felt doing each individual cranial nerve was redundant to the prior focused assessments I had conducted, including the NIH scale. I was confused about the NIH scale portion of the simulation. I thought it was strange that the system told me that my assessment was wrong. I felt that I based my scores on what I observed in the patient, and to be told that my assessment score was wrong was surprising, a bit jarring frankly. Were I to conduct a comprehensive health assessment on a patient like AW again, I will be sure to assess all cranial nerves individually.
This simulation reinforced the importance of the cranial nerves and the NIH scale. The NIH scale is something that I will definitely carry over into my nursing practice. The assessment is very important with patients who are having symptoms of a possible stroke. At my hospital the requirement was to perform an NIH assessment once each shift followed by frequent neuro checks every four hours and as needed. I am also going to review each of the cranial nerve assessments and refresh my memory on each of these assessments. I have a few questions related to this simulation. First, Why was the SpO2 assessment deemed inappropriate for this patient? Second, did others feel that the assessment requirements on this case were very redundant? Third, how did others feel about the NIH portion of the simulation?

CASE STUDY:
Drug-Facilitated Sexual Assault: Jessica
Sexual assault includes any type of sexual activity to which an individual does not agree. Because of
the effects of some drugs, commonly called date rape drugs, victims may be physically helpless,
unable to refuse, or even unable to remember what happened. Jessica, a 16-year-old high school
sophomore, expresses concern to the school nurse practitioner that she knows someone who might
have had sex “without knowing it.”
Reflective Questions 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
How can the nurse practitioner answer these common questions?
What are date rape drugs and how can a person be unaware that such a drug has been
ingested?
What can you do to protect yourself?
What do you do if you think you have been sexually assaulted?
What can you do when someone you care about has been sexually assaulted?
What role does a nurse practitioner play in the care of sexually assaulted patients,
particularly in the adolescent age group?

Prioritization of Care The Prioritization of Care digital activity provides a s

Prioritization of Care
The Prioritization of Care digital activity provides a safe and convenient environment for students to practice clinical judgement and decision-making skills related to identifying and prioritizing patient care and needs.
Create an audio/visual presentation that will describe a healthcare education tool for a specific health need of a specific population that is different than your own.
The presentation should:
Identify the population and how it is different than your own.
Discuss the importance of the health need.
Identify special learning challenges this population faces.
Include a description of the tool to teach the information and explain how it works.
Discuss how the literature supports the use of the technology you have chosen.
Explain how the tool contributes to critical thinking.
Explain how the tool contributes to nursing practice and patient outcomes.
Guidelines:
1. Choose a population that is different than your own. For example: if you are a 25-year-old woman, who is a U.S citizen and only speak English, choose an older male patient who is from another race, culture, or ethnicity and who speaks limited English).
Identify the population and how it is different than your own.
Discuss the importance of the health need. For this population. For example: there is an increased incidence of type 2 diabetes mellitus in the teen population so there a need for a tool to address this population’s special needs.
Identify special learning challenges this population faces. For example: income, sensory impairment, or language.
2. Develop a teaching tool: Incorporate technology/multimedia into your tool. For example: texts, twitter, blogs, email, YouTube video, video-conferencing, Skype, computer or cell phone app, electronic brochures, and electronic booklets.
Include a description of the tool to teach the information. Explain how the tool works but you do not have to actually create the tool. For example: your tool may be a website, but you do not have to actually create the site.
3. Discussion:
Discuss how the literature supports the use of the technology you have chosen.
Explain how the tool contributes to critical thinking – what skills does it develops.
Explain how the tool contributes to nursing practice and patient outcomes.
Important note: Develop education materials at the sixth-grade reading level to ensure the general population will understand the information. Use this simple readability index calculator to check any text that you may incorporate into your teaching materials. Just click on the link, and when it opens, copy and paste an example from your written text to reveal the reading level. You can also use Microsoft Word to assess the reading level of your written content by selecting review, spelling and grammar, readability statistics.
Do not include:
A description of the disease process
What the client can expect from the disease
Extraneous information; For example: if you are creating a tool for patients who have lung cancer do not include statistics about lung cancer unless it is part of your tool.
