Overview

The focus of this unit is on the lifespan approach to nursing management that supports promoting the health of the individual experiencing a long-term illness. It will provide you with theoretical knowledge that will complement Clinical Nursing Practice 4 . You will build on your critical thinking and clinical reasoning skills through the development of knowledge with regards to nursing interventions required to provide safe nursing care to individuals, families and carers in the sub-acute and community setting.

Assessment Overview

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Written Assessment 50%
2. Written Assessment 50%

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%). Consult the University’s Grades and Results Procedures for more details of interim results and final grades.

Assessment Title Literature Review
Task Description

Literature review 2000 words +/- 10%

A literature review is a critical investigation of published sources, or literature, on a particular topic. It is an evaluation of the literature and provides a summary, categorisation, comparison and assessment of different sources.

You will find a link to the Academic Learning Centre Fact Sheet on Literature Reviews on the Moodle site under the Assessments tab.

For this assessment you are required to conduct a literature review on the subacute and community management of a patient with a diagnosis of renal failure. For clarification on the descriptions of subacute or community management, please review the appropriate section in Week 1 of the Study Guide and on the Moodle site.

While the focus of the literature review should be the Australian setting, you should consider the lifespan approach and preventative measures in the local, national and international settings.

As this is a literature review, it is an expectation that you will have at least, 20 peer reviewed journal articles. Remember the three R’s. Recent, Reliable and Relevant.

Some points to remember:

· You must reference as per the APA Referencing Guide. There is a link to this on the Moodle site, under the assessments tab.

· The word count for your literature review is 2000 words (+/- 10%). This includes your in text referencing.

· Your assessment should be word processed, with appropriate formatting, font size, line spacing and layout.

· You may choose to use headings in your literature review. This may assist you in organising the different points you are covering.

· If you use headings, you will be required to add a Contents/Headings page into your assessment.

· You must write in academic style. Be mindful of casual language, grammar, spelling, punctuation and sentence structure.

· Save and upload your file as a word document (or equivalent) so it can be read by the marker.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION!

The CQUniversity Assessment Policy and Procedure (4.58) states:

· If a student does not submit an extension request or does not give sound reasons for a late request, a penalty of five percent (or equivalent) of the total available marks for the assessment will be deducted for each calendar day (full or part) the assessment task is overdue.

What this means for you. If you are having any issues or problems, make contact with the unit co-ordinator BEFORE the due date.

Finally, if you have any questions regarding this assessment item, please address your questions in the first instance to the Assessment 1 Forum on the Moodle site. If it is of a personal nature, then, of course, please contact your unit coordinator directly.

Assessment Title Case Study
Task Description

Assessment 2 – Due Date Friday of Week 10 at 11.45pm

Case Study 2000 words +/- 10%

There are two different methods for working with case studies. There is the Analytical Approach and the Problem-Oriented Method. For this assessment you will be expected to use the Problem-Oriented Method.

“A successful case study analyses a real life situation where existing problems need to be solved” (Monash University, 2007).

A case study should relate the theory to a practical situation. What that means is you will need to apply the ideas and knowledge discussed in the coursework to the practical issues you will discuss in the case study. To do this you will need to:

· Identify the problems

· Select the major problems in the case and suggest solutions to these problems

· Recommend the best solution to be implemented and detail how it should be implemented

Remember: The Case is the ‘real life’ situation; the Case Study is the analysis of the situation

Using the information gathered from Assessment 1, the literature review, the student is to write a Case Study based on a patient with renal failure. The student may choose to base some information on patients they have come into contact with during their clinical placements to date. NB: Remember to maintain confidentiality and de-identify any information surrounding the patient or health facility. The case study should include the timeframe from pre-discharge management to discharge into the subacute/community setting. The student should include in the discussion any community services that may be required.

Some points to remember:

· You must reference as per the APA Referencing Guide. There is a link to this on the Moodle site, under the assessments tab.

· The word count for your case study is 2000 words (+/- 10%). This includes your in text referencing.

· Your assessment should be word processed, with appropriate formatting, font size, line spacing and layout.

· You are not required to use headings in your case study.

· You are not required to add a Contents/Headings page into your assessment.

· You must write in academic style. Be mindful of casual language, grammar, spelling, punctuation and sentence structure.

· Save and upload your file as a word document (or equivalent) so it can be read by the marker.

· The case study is to be written in the Problem-Oriented Method as described at the beginning of this document.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION!

The CQUniversity Assessment Policy and Procedure (4.58) states:

· If a student does not submit an extension request or does not give sound reasons for a late request, a penalty of five percent (or equivalent) of the total available marks for the assessment will be deducted for each calendar day (full or part) the assessment task is overdue.
