Welcome to Health Assessment

Hello class: my name is, and I will be the instructor for this class. For more information on how to get a hold of me, please go under my profile for specific information. However, my email is: ***The best way to contact me though, is through the Private forum***

This course will focus on methods of health history taking, physical examination skills, documentation, and health screening. The course emphasizes the individual as the client, functional health patterns, community resources, and the teaching learning process. This course will take us through infancy to an older adult.

To find course material, go under your Dashboard, then you will see PATH. There are two links to find information regarding this course; course material and syllabus.

The course material tab shows what textbook is used for this class.
The syllabus will show what this course is, the assignments for the course, the topics of the course, the grading system, and how to refer to the student policy handbook. **there has been some problems downloading the syllabus, thus the PATH is also the syllabus…but 1 week and topic at a time.
Under your Assignments, will have the due date and the rubric posted to look at.

Under the Planner tab, assignments are listed along with the due dates. Clicking the collaborative reminder within the calendar tab will show the assignment, any information that is needed for the assignment, and give the rubric of how the assignment will be graded.

Please refer to all other announcements for Class Policies and Week 1 class.

Feel free to contact me anytime. I look forward to this 5 week journey with each of you

NR 509 Week 1 Assignment Debriefing
Faculty will lead virtual debriefing sessions during Weeks 1-6. The date, time, and duration of the weekly debriefing session will be posted by the course faculty. Students must register to attend the debriefing session.

During the debriefing process, students reflect upon their simulation experience and revisit their assessments, interventions, observations, and patient responses. Faculty coach students to review patient data and reflect upon the interventions performed in response to the clinical situation presented during the simulation experience. This process facilitates students to analyze their own thought processes and supports transference of knowledge gained from simulation experiences to actual clinical practice.

ORDER NOW
The goals of each debriefing session are to:

Answer questions
Address perspectives, perceptions, and concerns
Emphasize and reinforce learning objectives and clinical outcomes
Create linkages to the “real world”
Assess and validate what was learned
Each student is expected to contribute to the debriefing session by:

Reflecting on personal strengths, limitations, beliefs, prejudices, or values
Identify improvement goals and strategies
Discuss the simulation experience and provide comments and suggestions to student peers
Transfer knowledge from the simulation experience to actual clinical practice
Please refer to the Debriefing Session Guidelines and Grading Rubric located in the Course Resource section.

NR 509 Week 1 Assignment Alternate Writing Assignment
NOTE: You will complete this alternate writing assignment ONLY if you had not participated or do not plan to participate in a debriefing session for the given week.

As a family nurse practitioner, you must possess excellent physical assessment skills. This alternate writing assignment mirrors the discussion content of the debriefing session and will allow the student to expand their knowledge of physical health assessment principles specific to the advanced practice role.

The purposes of this assignment are to: (a) identify and articulate advanced assessment health history and physical examination techniques which are relevant to a focused body system (CO 1), (b) differentiate normal and abnormal findings with regard to a disease or condition that impacts the body system (CO 2), and (c) adapt advanced assessment skills if necessary to suit the needs of specific patient populations (CO 4).

These activities and exercises will introduce the student to the functions of open and closed questions in effective communication during a patient interview.

NR 509 Week 1: Shadow Health History Assignment
Pre-brief
Obtaining an accurate history is the critical first step in determining the etiology of a patient’s problem. A large percentage of the time, you will actually be able to make a diagnosis based on the history alone. The value of the history, of course, will depend on your ability to elicit relevant information. Your sense of what constitutes important data will grow exponentially as you practice your interviewing skills and through increased exposure to patients and illness. However, you are already in possession of the tools that will enable you to obtain a good history. Specifically, you must listen and ask appropriate questions to define the nature of a particular problem. In fact, seasoned clinicians occasionally lose sight of this important point, placing more reliance on the use of diagnostic testing rather than taking the time to listen to their patients. Interviewing patients is an art and should remain an essential skill for successful practice.

In this activity, you will interview Tina Jones to collect data to assess Ms. Jones’ condition. You will also have the opportunity to educate and empathize with Tina to engage in effective therapeutic communication; create a problem list using evidence from the data you collected; prioritize the identified problems to differentiate immediate from non-immediate care; plan how to best address the most important concern with further assessment, interventions, and patient education; and compare your documentation to model documentation.

Ms. Jones is a pleasant, 28-year-old obese African American single woman who presents to establish care and with a recent right foot injury. She is the primary source of the history. Ms. Jones offers information freely and without contradiction. Her speech is clear and coherent and she maintains eye contact throughout the interview.

Reason for visit: Patient presents for an initial primary care visit today complaining of a right foot wound.
