Assessment 3: Care Coordination Presentation to Colleagues
Develop a presentation for nursing colleagues highlighting the fundamental principles of care coordination. Create a detailed narrative script for your presentation, approximately 4 pages in length, and record a video of your presentation.
1. Outlines effective, evidence-based, and culturally sensitive strategies for collaborating with patients and their families to achieve desired health outcomes. Ensures the strategies are well-supported by credible evidence.
2. Identifies the aspects of change management that directly affect elements of the patient experience essential to the provision of high-quality, patient-centered care. Focuses on aspects of care highly valued by patients, and distinguishes between patient experience and patient satisfaction.
3. Explains the rationale for coordinated care plans based on ethical decision making. Identifies the logical implications and consequences of an ethical approach to care, and articulates underlying assumptions that guide decision making.
4. Identifies the potential impact of specific health care policy provisions on outcomes and patient experiences. Draws logical, evidence-based conclusions from an insightful interpretation of relevant and significant policy provisions.
5. Raises awareness of the nurse’s vital role in the coordination and continuum of care. Clearly establishes the importance and relevance of the nurse’s role in an engaging and memorable presentation that is appropriate for the audience and well supported by an error-free video presentation that includes a written script and an APA-formatted reference list.
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.
